THE CONSIDERABLE RAMBLINGS CONTINUED. DISTANCE LYRICS

EVERGREEN

When all the leaves are brown and fallen to the floor

Been whipped up by the wind and blown around your door

Then I’ll come down from here.. Whisper gently dear

Didn’t we say it would stay green this year.. When we were just beginning here.

A frost the gently thaws and crumbles underfoot

A sheer of misty glass that melts around your shoes

A shaft of burning light that melts the coldest mood

Til I come back to you. Whisper gently dear

Didn’t we say it would stay green this year.. When we were just beginning here

Remember how we swept lost leaves from around those trees

Only fools think love is evergreen

BONES

If you feel that love run cold after crackling through your bones

And tears fall like ash upon your clothes

Is there no one else you know who’ll tell you

Come on home I want you. Come on home I need you here

Come on home I want you. Come on home I need you near

If you feel like you’re alone, If there’s only one shadow

If you’re looking down and only see your own

Is there no one else you know who’ll tell you

Come on home I want you. Come on home I need you here

Come on home I want you. Come on home I need you near

BURNING HEARTS

You’re holding on with all you’ve got I want to be there too

And all along you hum the song we got married to

Can you take it from the top, you know id love you to

Sing the words you know by heart don’t I know them too

But who’s going to know when the needle jumps

And who’s going to know when the quiet comes

To take your love away

You’re holding on to god knows what I want to be there too

And all along you hum the song we got married to

Is there nothing that can stop all the fire in you

Take the burning hearts we’ve got and let the ashes loose

But who’s going to know when the needle jumps

And who’s going to know when the quiet comes

To take your love away

EVERY STEP

I know you’ve heard it all before so I won’t tell you any more

I’ll slip my keys under the door if I don’t need them any more

No more will I wake to kiss your sweet face

I count every footstep that takes me away

I promised a thousand ‘til I turn and say

That I miss you every step of the way

I strip the sheets out from the bed makes it easier to forget

And wipe my footprints from the floor so you forget which size I wore

And take the records that we shared so you can’t hear what isn’t there

And when I’m aching for more we can’t hurt this any more

No more will I wake to kiss your sweet face

I count every footstep that takes me away

I promised a thousand ‘til I turn and say

That I miss you every step of the way

GETTING IT ALL WRONG

I wonder how you’re feeling now

I wonder how you get home when you’ve been out

I held you so close I can’t let go

You left a weight in my arms

I hope you know you left me so far down

And now you’re ready to settle down

Now that you’ve dropped everything

You can live without but got me so, so wrong

Getting it all wrong

EVENING LIGHT

You followed your heart, Is that where you are

I’ve been walking for days, I don’t even know which way

To follow your heart

I know that I’m falling

Like the first drop of rain on the first sunny day

Will I see you again when the mist burns away

On the last of the evening light

I walked through the night to find morning light

Cast shadows of you on a river that won’t run true

But carries your heart

I’m falling

I know that I’m falling again

Like the first drop of rain on the first sunny day

Will I see you again when the mist burns away

On the last of the evening light

YOUR BEAUTY STILL RULES

There’s a hole where the light shines through

Shows the dust in your room

Draws a line that we can’t walk through

Gently keeps me with you

I hold the light in my hands

And warm every bone that I can

When I hold the light in my hands

We know no end

There’s a pile of your cloths half strewn

Barely lit by the moon

On the bed in the coldest room

Where your beauty still rules

I hold the light in my hands

And warm every bone that I can

When I hold the light in my hands

We know no end

SOMEWHERE

We’re on our own, it took some time I know

Now there’s no one else around to show you how

To be alone, to throw you’re hands down

Knowing no one else is there to break your fall

But don’t I own you more, don’t I owe you more..

You feel the draught in every door

So rip the hinges off the wall

And let the wind run down the hall

It doesn’t hurt to change it all
