Through the Night (2017)

Madeleine

Hey Madeleine, do you live your life
Like a ghost holding on to a time gone by?
What will it take to relinquish your pain
That is keeping you down, and driving you insane?

Hey Madeleine, will you ever come home
To the place that you love, the place that you know?
You spend your days taming the restless seas
Looking for something to bring you peace.

Madeleine, Madeleine
Turn your boat around
Madeleine, Madeleine
Keep your feet on the ground
Madeleine, Madeleine
There's a devil to pay
Madeleine, Madeleine
You'll live another day

Hey Madeleine, are you drifting the seas
Of a world that is round, a place that is free?
Drop down your anchor, secure your bitter ends
Wait for the dawn, your chance will come again

Madeleine, Madeleine
Turn your boat around
Madeleine, Madeleine
Keep your feet on the ground
Madeleine, Madeleine
There's a devil to pay
Madeleine, Madeleine
You'll live another day

Madeleine, Madeleine
Turn your boat around
Madeleine, Madeleine
Keep your feet on the ground
Madeleine, Madeleine
There's a devil to pay
Madeleine, Madeleine
You'll live another day...

In the Burning Grass

Every time he takes a walk in the burning grass
He closes his eyes
He closes his eyes
And he listens for a faint rumbling
It's far away
It's far away...

And he knows that there's no turning back
To how it used to be
To how it used to be
Flowers blossoming in the burning grass
Swaying now
Swaying now...

And I find every time
I hide
I hide
I lose a part of you
A part of me
And I see
How beautiful life can be.

Every time he takes a walk in the ancient grove
He opens his eyes
He opens his eyes
And he sees the fruit of a thousand years
Standing strong
Standing strong...

And I find every time
I hide
I hide
I lose a part of you
A part of me
And I see
How beautiful life can be.
 

She

Every time she calls me in the evening
When the light is soft on my skin
Moving through the quiet she's whispering
Tracing lines from places I've been

And she's calling me, ohhh
And she's calling me, ohhh

Every time she walks with me I'm dreaming
Lighting candles in the dark
Running through the valley of memory
Tracing lines from the start

And she's calling me, ohhh
And she's calling me, ohhh

She's been knocking at my window
She's been calling at my door
She's been dancing in the twilight
Footsteps soft upon the floor

She's been knocking at my window
She's been calling at my door
She's been dancing in the twilight
Footsteps soft upon the floor

And I could stop and hold her closer
But I can't bear a moment more...

Every time she calls me in the evening
With the autumn leaves at my door
I'm turning pages faster than I'm reading them
Could I have just one moment more

And she's calling me, ohhh
And she's calling me, ohhh
On...

 

9 Crimes (Damien Rice cover)

 

Don't Run

Wait for me, and face the unseen
Rising up beyond the barricades
Hold on tight, don’t run away

Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Stay with me
Stay with me

Wait to see what lies between
The hiding place and the renegade
Turn around, don’t run away

Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Stay with me
Stay with me

I can read the shadows on your face
Can you hear me calling out your name?
Move through the darkness into grace
And stay with me
Stay with me

Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Stay with me
Stay with me

Don’t run away
(Stay with me, stay with me)
Don’t run away
(Stay with me, stay with me)
Don’t run away
(Stay with me, stay with me)
Stay with me
(Stay with me, stay with me)
Stay with me

Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Don’t run away
Stay with me
Stay with me

 

The Navigator

Take my words and hold them
Like an anchor through the night
It's a long way back to shore, dear
But I'll hold you in my mind

Ohhhhh...
Ohhhhh...

I left you in the winter
When the seas were dark and cold
Now the seasons touch you softly
But the years have made me old

Ohhhhh...
Ohhhhh...
Ohhhhh...

Take me through the night
I'll find my way
Hey...
Take me through the night
I'll find my way
Hey...

Guide me by the moonlight
For I cannot see the stars
It's only in my memory
That I'll sail to where you are

Ohhhhh...
Ohhhhh...
Ohhhhh...

Take me through the night
I'll find my way
Hey...
Take me through the night
I'll find my way
Hey...
Take me through the night
I'll find my way

 

Through the Night

When we awake in the morning
In the morning
Time holds the light changing softly
Changing softly

All night my heart makes its way to the morning
Waits for you on this dark and quiet road

And I know I'll never let you go
I know I'll never let you go

When we hear the birds calling
The birds calling
We will greet a thousand mornings
A thousand mornings

All night my heart makes its way to the morning
Waits for you on this dark and quiet road

On this dark and quiet road
And I know...
I know I'll never let you go
And I know I'll never let you go...

 

White Rose

Time froze the white rose
That you gave to me
Eyes closed, the night cold
When we said goodbye

Go and find your heart
We'll hold our lives apart...

Bright glow, the light shone
On the water in between
Time flows, and life goes
Like rain into the sea

Go and find you heart
We'll hold our lives apart
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on
I'm holding on...

Time froze the white rose
That you gave to me

 

Fifty Years

And the diamond ring upon her hand
Shone like banking fires upon the sand
And the years have whiled away
Like rounded stones worn old by past days
When the wind blows open wide
The window that she cannot hide

And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground
And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground

Fifty years she knows she carried the weight
Of a love she held to remember the days
And the dust has settled now
The stirring of the winter's crown
When the spring returns the ground
To hope that wakes the fields of brown

And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground
And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground
And the cherry blossoms floating down
Like snow upon the ground...

The Water's Edge (2015)

The Monk & The Lover

Falling Down

Count the Days

In the spring, when I leave LA
I hear your voice, though you’re far away
The months are long, and I long for you
And I can’t wait ‘til I come back to you

The days are kind, and the sky is warm
I feel you move, feel it in my core
I miss your voice, softly in my ear
You drive me mad, wish you were here

As I drive and I think of you
Miles away, just doing what you do
Makes me smile, just picturing the way
That you move through the rhythms of your day

See your face in the moments of my day
Feel you close although you’re far away
Hold my head high ‘til I see you there
Smiling at me, sunshine in your hair

I’m coming home, and I’m coming back to you
Chasing highway signs as I drive on through
The warm, dark night comforts the stars
(Count the days, count count the days down)
Guiding my way, and I can’t be far
(Count the miles, count count the miles down)

Stars are blind in these city lights
Even so, they’ll shine on me tonight
Take the dark, and speed it through to dawn
Break of day, I know you’re driving on

Count the days, count count the days down
Count the miles, count count the miles down
Count the days, count count the days down
Count the miles, count count the miles down

Every time I go away I find how much I miss the way
You look into my eyes and say I miss your each and every way
Every hour of every day, from the months of March to May
(Count the days, count count the days down)
I dream of ways that I can stay close to you throughout the days
(Count the miles, count count the miles down)
I’m rolling down the freeway, thinking about my final day
(Count the days, count count the days down)
When I come home to you and say I love you like no other way
(Count the miles, count count the miles down)

Count the days, count count the days down
Count the miles, count count the miles down
Count the days, count count the days down
Count the miles, count count the miles down

Count the days, count count the days down
Count the miles, count count the miles down

 

Georgia

Take me home, Georgia
I’m going away for awhile
Take me home, take everything I own
‘Cause it’ll only weigh me down, down, down

Won’t be long, Georgia
‘Cause I’m leaving at the dawn
Save your words and all your sweet remembrances
Won’t need them when I’m gone, gone, gone

The road is long, but I know just where I’m going
The road is wide, but it don’t feel like alone
The road is empty, but it’s full of riches I have known
Take me home, Georgia

Hey, hey, hey
Take me home, Georgia,
Hey, hey, hey,
Take me home, Georgia,
Georgia, call me back to you

Hey,
Take me home, Georgia,
Hey, hey, hey,
Take me home, Georgia,
Georgia, call me back to you
Georgia…

Don’t hold my hand, Georgia
‘Cause I’ll do this on my own
Don’t hold my hand, but Georgia, I’ll remember you
Keep a memory of me too

The road is long, but I know just where I’m going
The road is wide, but it don’t feel like alone
The road is empty, but it’s full of riches I have known
Take me home, Georgia

Hey, hey, hey
Take me home, Georgia,
Hey, hey, hey,
Take me home, Georgia,
Georgia, call me back to you

Hey,
Take me home, Georgia,
Hey, hey, hey,
Take me home, Georgia,
Georgia, call me back to you

Georgia, Georgia
Take me home, Georgia,
Georgia, call me back to you
Take me home, Georgia…
Take me home, Georgia,

Georgia, call me back to you
Take me home, Georgia…
Take me home, Georgia,
Georgia, call me back to you
Take me home, Georgia…

Take me home, Georgia...

 

Embers

The sounds of summer steal away
And the fire’s burning low
I trace the embers of your face
And watch the amber glow

And it fades away...

Hey, every time I turn around now
I see your face, even though I've lost you
(Every time I turn around I see your face,
I see your face...)

Hey, every time I turn around now
I see your face, even though I've lost you
(Every time I turn around I see your face,
I see your face...)

Down, down, down...

The days, they fall and slip away
And my sorrows turn to hope
The memories define the space
That you held long ago

Hey, every time I turn around now
I see your face, even though I've lost you
(Every time I turn around I see your face,
I see your face...)

Hey, every time I turn around now
I see your face, even though I've lost you
(Every time I turn around I see your face,
I see your face...)

Hey, every time I turn around now
I see your face, even though I've lost you
(Every time I turn around I see your face,
I see your face...)

Ahhh...
