Come Closer 06:20
Come Closer Start to open Lay your hands upon me like a soldier Eyes that grant forgiveness like the priest you should be Come closer, tell me secrets Crossing every line was meant to bind us Gaining shame and placing it on Jesus They say there’s nothing to hide Hide it all You say there’s nothing to hide We hide it all Feel the shepherd’s hand upon your shoulder Hold your breath and pray till this is over Come closer, bring holy water Crossing every line was meant to bind us Lost your faith and stumbled into blindness They say there’s nothing to hide Hide it all You say there’s nothing to hide We hide it all Feel the shepherd’s hand upon your shoulder Hold your breath and pray till this is over It’s over Come closer, come closer, come closer They say there’s nothing to hide, nothing to hide

My kid sister not blood-related Works like an animal, skips her vacation Still I wonder, if something’s in the water ‘cause who wants all work with no play? And when mother calls to say “come see your father Before it’s too late” She says love it comes and comes and goes Yes love it comes and comes and goes My big brother from another mother His best friend Nathalie, they were all but lovers One day the gloves dropped and like that the friendship stopped Nathalie’s name we’d never say Oh this love it comes and comes and goes Yes love it comes and comes and goes Love it comes and comes and goes Love it comes and comes and goes Me, myself and I and all our little alibis We’d like our own family to take on vacation Still I wonder if something’s in the water ‘cause every good girl I tend to leave Oh this love it comes and comes and goes Yes love it comes and comes and goes Love it comes and comes and goes Love it comes and comes and goes

Gold 05:05
Morning it came And all knew there’s something just taken away After choices once made After breathing and silence, the passing, came rain You know Life is like gold Seems easy to deal with, But it’s hard and it’s cold You know Life is like gold How it shines till it shows It just breaks and goes On and on and on and on and on Now we’re guests in the hall Now we’re the image of her lying down to recall How our mom ever grows And with the servants of science the dying came home You know Life is like gold Seems easy to deal with, But it’s hard and it’s cold You know Life is like gold How it shines ‘till it shows It just breaks and goes On and on and on and on and on Something dies, something’s torn Something dies, something’s born Something dies, something’s torn Something dies, something’s born

Here’s the thing my friends All refuse to understand And it´s that I don’t care I´ll be the silent hand When you’ve decided on a whim That you need me there I’ll be the thought that doesn’t leave, I’ll be the tugging on a sleeve I’ll be the hand in the small of your back In that place just before sleep where All our wildest dreams seem like wishes Waiting to be granted You were always the one Dancing dreams behind the bar You were always the one Smoking cigarettes in the dark Of my room It was always you We listened to the Talking Heads And talked about `What Sarah Said´ And I, I had my answer ready then So you can ask me today You can ask me tomorrow You can ask me time and time again You were always the one Dancing dreams behind the bar You were always the one Smoking cigarettes in the dark Of my room Like a horse finds its rider Like a ghost finds a house to haunt Like a bull chooses its fighter Like a guitar chooses the song Like the homeless find their lot In the park by the statue Where a city burned to ashes but I first met you It was always It was always It was always You were always The one Dancing dreams behind the bar And you were always the one Smoking cigarettes in the dark of my room It was always you.

Meredith 03:58
Oh come light my soul on fire Oh come my love Times they changed, wild horses tire Oh come my love Rest my bones and rest my feet Rest my heart just to see You’ve enlightened me Faces start fading, friends turn quiet Oh come my love They built their houses, we joined a choir Oh come my love Rest my bones and rest my feet Rest my heart just to see You’ve enlightened me These were our songs These were the matches These were our songs These were the ashes Oh my love These were our poems These were our answers These were the hymns Sang for the masses Oh Oh come my love Oh come my love Rest my bones and rest my feet Rest my heart just to see you’ve enlightened me

Tourist Eyes 03:18
Ask for authenticity And she is deserving of my honesty I said, “baby this is hard for me I’ve been dodging love since I was 23” I’d rather keep you as a mystery Than open up the doors Modern romance, love at first glance (I've got tourist eyes) Did we have a chance? Feelings gonna make me weak, I’ve got a wandering mind And restless feet She said, “You know it’d be better Crying together Than laughing by yourself” I’d rather keep you as a mystery Than open up the doors Modern romance, love at first glance (I've got tourist eyes) Did we have a chance? Modern romance, we don’t slow dance (I've got tourist eyes) Are we too advanced? We cheapened everything Sold off our diamond rings Gave up romantic dreams

Over Again 04:26
It was a call for the ages ‘It was the corn and the wheat’, I said ‘A song for the ocean, A song for the damned’ She said ‘mother was a waitress, father lacked the time, So at night I wrote you songs and in the morning I’d rhyme’ You see it’s easy to speak but it’s harder to believe It’s the coming of age and to write one has to die So we tried and tried and tried, we just tried and tried and tried And start over again She was an artist on fridays She was a ghost when she talked She said ‘our verses they’re holy, our choruses pop’ She said ‘I start my day with water, I’ll end it with a song’ She said ‘I’m easily forgotten, taken for a preacher and gone, gone, gone’ She said ‘it’s easy to speak but it’s harder to believe And it’s the coming of age and to write one has to die’ So we tried and tried and tried, we just tried and tried and tried And start over again Start over again And before he was a name, he was an actor of the games we played And now they’re just Newberry songs we’d all sing along and phrase Singing ‘we’ll start over, start over again’.

Get On Up 03:21
Get on up, move on out Head on home your time is now Willy Mays, an honest man He took his life, into his hand The day he saw red men come To take his stock and burn his home He said ‘Get on up, move on out, Head on home your time is now The choice is yours, flight or fly But if you stand, surely you will die The leader stopped, stared Willy down Pulled up his horse, slid to the ground He walked towards Willy Mays Arms open wide, smile on his face and he said ‘Get on up, move on out, Head on home your time is now The choice is yours, flight or fly But if you stand, surely you will die Willy’s gun trembled in his hand Too scared to run, to leave his papa’s land He raised his gun towards the devil’s eyes Before he could shoot though an arrow pierced his side, You gotta ‘Get on up, move on out, Head on home your time is now The choice is yours, flight or fly But if you stand, surely you will die
