Follow me down through the cotton fields
Moon shadow shine bright the way you will
Lead us down a road where no one goes
We can run away

Come take my hand while I’m waiting here
Get away from it all and find what’s real
If we don’t get out now the chance won’t reappear
We can run away

Chorus:
Hold me tight and don’t let go
Sweet and soft no one will know
We can run away

I buried my heart in a willow tree
You came along, gave it back to me
Now we’re creatures of the night, we set each other free
Run away with me

Chorus

Lay with me down by the riverside
Stars in the sky shining in your eyes
We won’t make a sound no one will be around
We can run away

Chorus

Many a year ago
In a kingdom by the sea
There lived a maiden you may know
By the name of Annabelle Lee
No other thought did trouble her mind
But to love and be loved by me

We were children both
In this kingdom by the sea
But we loved with a love that was more than love
I and my Annabelle Lee
With a love that the winged angels high
Coveted her and me

This was the reason long ago
In this kingdom by the sea
A wind blew from a stormy cloud
That took my Annabelle Lee
Then her wicked brothers came
To steal her away from me

They shut her up in a tomb below
This kingdom by the sea
But no maiden’s grave could sever my soul
From the love she bore for me
For the moon don’t beam without a dream
Of my darling Annabelle Lee

For many years I’ve wandered
Through this kingdom by the sea
I’ve laid myself beside the bones
Of my beautiful Annabelle Lee
I’ll make my bed near the rising tide
In her tomb by the sounding sea

I spin around in your love
In a place of wonder
I want to wander
With you, my muse

In a dream of carousels
On waves in caravels
Collecting seashells
For you, my muse

I peruse and conjure
Sit and ponder
Then go under
The blanket of your words
The way I feel
The things I sing
The songs I write
The joy you bring
To me my muse

Stillness surround me
But you have found me
And I have found you
My muse

In a night of silence
I’m settled by your sounds
In a dream of quiet
Contentedness surrounds

Chorus

Delightfully exhausted
Willingly this way
Always yours, always yours I’ll stay
With you, my muse

When I ventured here
Truth was far not near
So I traveled on
Truth revealed in song

I was here nor there
Always asking where
So I took my time
My heart for me to find

As I made my way
Through long and winding days
I came upon your heart beating rhythms that challenged the deepest sea’s waves
I could not look away

You were here nor there
Always asking where
So you took your time
You’re hard for me to find

When I ventured here
Truth was far not near
So I traveled onTruth revealed in song

Peace

Just when you start to look away
And I don’t know what I should say
I can’t distinguish night from day
Then you come around

Just when things are lookin’ down
And everybody’s wearing frowns
The king went and misplaced his crown
But it’ll come around

Chorus:
And I don’t want to lose my faith in you
Cause sometimes I don’t have a clue
Of what I’ve done and what I should do
But I’ll come around

These summer nights are hot and still
The days are long but time instills
A sense of hope, a coming thrill
And I know it will

Just when life seems like a lost cause
People spinning words into angry flaws
And I don’t know who I am or who I was
Life comes around

Chorus

Just when the whirlwind begins
Things twirling out of control, lost in the spin
You gotta take a step back, start over again
Find a way to win

I may be young, I may be old
I may be telling, I may be told
I may be wise, I may be bold
But I’ll come around

Chorus

And you’ll come around
And we’ll all come around

Ring them bells ye heathen from the city that dreams
Ring them bells from the sanctuaries cross the valleys and streams
For they’re deep and they’re wide
And the world on its side
And time is running backwards
And so is the bride.

Ring them bells Saint Peter where the four winds blow
Ring them bells with an ironhand
So the people will know
For it’s rush hour now
On the wheel and the plow
And the sun is going down upon the sacred cow.

Ring them bells Sweet Martha for the poor man’s son
Ring them bells so the world will know that God is one
Oh the shepherd is asleep
Where the willows weep
And the mountains are filled with lost sheep

Ring them bells for the blind and the deaf
Ring them bells for all of us who are left
Ring them bells for the chosen few
Who will judge the many when the game is through
Ring them bells for the time that flies
For the child that cries
When the innocence dies.

Ring them bells Saint Catherine from the top of the room
Ring them from the fortress for the lilies that bloom
Oh the lines are long and the fighting is strong
And they’re breaking down the distance between right and wrong.

Sonic satisfaction
Holds my ears in sweet embrace
The endless chain reaction
Of what we give and what we take

Going through the motions
And acting out this part
Sifting through the pages
Of the life that I can start

Calloused fingers fumble
On the boardwalk of my muse
Feeling fit to crumble
Some days I wake up with the blues

Holding onto my time
Or at least what I’ve got left
I’ll work with what I’m given
And I’ll dream up all the rest

Throw away the watches
Call off every bet
The time ain’t mine for saving
But I’ll take what I can get

Holding onto wisdom
Of the ones who came before
Floating in the balance
Of the calm before the storm

It barks at no one else but me
Like it’s seen a ghost
I guess it’s seen the sparks a-flowing
No one else would know

Hey man slow down, slow down
Idiot, slow down, slow down

Sometimes I get overcharged
That’s when you see sparks
You ask me where the hell I’m going
At a thousand feet per second

Hey man slow down, slow down
Idiot slow down, slow down

Hey man slow down, slow down
Idiot slow down, slow down

Gypsy

I saw a gypsy today
She was beautiful
I couldn’t look away
She was yellow and gray
The colors of the day
A bit too gorgeous
And not much to say

Stars on her little white wrists
Silken ribbons
Flowing from her hips
A smile that stopped time
Bittersweet as wine
She’s lost and she’s fine
Taking her timeI saw a gypsy today

Across the way
I heard someone say
Pick up a penny
Have luck for a day
But I picked that coin up
And I ain’t found no luck
Just wanderin’ and stuck
In the mud and the muck
But I saw a gypsy today
