Lyrics

18th Floor (Live at Earthworks)

On his arm she looks so pretty and free
The perfect outline of a lady she was raised to be
Prada-laced, a string of pearls, eloquent words, a heartbreak’s cure

Bouncing inside a perfect circle
On the 18th floor
Down here all her sisters cry
Honey get your own life

Down here we’re stompin’ to the bass drum’s beat
Don’t give up
The choir sings
You won’t find love in worldly things
The bottom’s top and up is down
Learn to love and sing out loud
The 18th floor’s an illusion

On her own she has no victory and too much time
Roaming the alley every evening
Dreaming of paradise
Her baby’s gone
She has no one
She lost her song
Where did she go wrong?
Her deflated, tortured circle wasn’t strong enough
Down here every night she cries
Bring me back to life!

Down here we’re stompin’ to the bass drum’s beat
Don’t give up
The choir sings
You won’t find love in worldly things
The bottom’s top and up is down
Learn to love and sing out loud
The 18th floor’s an illusion
Down here we’re stompin’ to the bass drum’s beat
Don’t give up
The choir sings
You won’t find love in worldly things
The bottom’s top and up is down
Learn to love and sing out loud
The 18th floor’s an illusion

Beautiful

You are beautiful
You are powerful
You can make it

What are you doing with your power?

You are the light
Shine your light all around us

What are you doing with your power?
What are you doing with your light?

Reach out and touch somebody
You are the light!
You are the light
The light is all around us
Reach out and touch somebody
You are the light
The light is all around us
Shine down on somebody, tonight
Shine your light
You are beautiful
You are powerful
We are powerful together
Together!
Together!

You are beautiful
You are powerful
You can make it

Daisies

I didn’t notice as you slipped away
With my heart, my heart it wasn’t yours
I can’t believe my life will be okay
When my open chest holds everything you showed me

Why do we bow to whisperers and liars
Long dead the day when sanity was ours
They pull us up to shove us six feet down
Fueled by fear we give the king his crown
We give the king his crown
We give the king his crown

Daisies and broken wings are all around me
I hear flightless birds sing
I can’t do this
I can’t take it
I can’t move on
I won’t make it
Falling
Wake me from this bad, bad dream

You kill with all you take and scheme
Our babies’ dying in the streets
We pray for change with no relief
Your buildings rise and our hearts sing
We’re lions in captivity
Nowhere to run
We’re just wondering
So we make due while the giants eat
We just can’t get ahead

Daisies and broken wings are all around me
I hear flightless birds sing
I can’t do this
I can’t take it
I can’t move on
I won’t make it
Falling
Wake me from this bad, bad dream

Dig Deep

Walk out on the water
The waves aren’t as high as you think
Walk out on the water
If you should fall down
Swim to me
Walk out on the water
The waves aren’t as high as you think
Walk out on the water If you should fall down
Swim to me

I can’t keep you on my heart forever
I can’t keep you from falling apart
I can’t keep you from sinking alone
Sinking alone
Falling in too deep
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper

Walk out on the water
The waves aren’t as high as you think
Walk out on the water
If you should fall down
Swim to me
Walk out on the water
The waves aren’t as high as you think
Walk out on the water
If you should fall down
Swim to me

I can’t keep you on my heart forever
I can’t keep you from falling apart
I can’t keep you from sinking alone
Sinking alone
Falling in too deep

Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper

If you cannot step out on your own by now
I’m gonna shove you in or
They’re gonna pull you in
If you cannot step out on your own by now
I’m gonna shove you in or
They’re gonna pull you in
Work a little healing like Jesus did
Work a little magic with your own hands
If you’ve got hands and feet
What are you using?
What are you using?

Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper
Dig deep, dig deep, dig deeper

Walk out on the water Walk out on the water Don’t be afraid now You’re not alone now If you take one step I’ll take two There ain’t no limit to what our love can do Walk out Walk out Walk out Walk out Walk out on the water

End of the Line

The sun rises
It’s over now
It’s a joke
Here I stand in the rain
My heart beats but won’t make a sound
What’s the point?
Every path ends this way
So I turn up the music and I drown it out
As the gun fire and screams fill my ears
I’ve cowered too long behind the front lines
1-2-3 the bomb ticks
I’m not here

It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line

Come drain the song from my famished mouth
As I lie in the wet, crimson sand
My cries for help are the least of these
Aimless hearts
Broken bones, bleeding hands
So I sing hallelujah
The end is near
Raise us up from the ash and decay
Ground zero blackens our hazy eyes
They’ve no use, no direction, no say

It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s over now
Over now
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line
It’s the end of the line

Goodbye

I woke up to you this morning
Is it too early to get way?
To fade into your bitter poison
A taste of love in my sloppy grace
It’s in my hands now to pour you over
Without a trace of your wicked ways
I could live alone now resurrected from the mire
Beautifully changed

But I love you
I miss you
I’ve said it a thousand times, I do
Why don’t you?
I love you
I miss you
I miss you
Goodbye

I keep a close eye on you always
I see when your love turns you away
You lost your fire and independence
emerged in her river of hate
I can’t live without you here in my arms
Wake up in my amazing grace
Reach for me in the bottomless sea
Cast your cares on me and I’ll forgive

I love you
I miss you again

I love you I miss you again
I’ve said it a thousand times
I know you love me too
I’ve prayed a thousand nights
That I would get to you
I’ve said it a thousand times
I know you love me too
I’ve prayed a thousand nights
That I would get to you
How do I get to you?
How do I get to you?
How do I get to you?
I’ve prayed a thousand times that I would get to you

It Never Snows in Cincinnati (When I Want It To)

It never snows in Cincinnati
When I want it to
Told you I’d be home for a white Christmas
Take the Roebling Bridge straight to you
I miss you hear on the West Coast
Where the air is hot
But my heart is cold
Will it snow in the Queen City
If I come back home?

It never snows in Cincinnati
When I want it to

Last year you sent me Skyline Chili
‘Twas my Yule Tide Feast
But couldn’t eat
I saw the Bengals on my TV
Wondered if you were also watching

It never snows in Cincinnati
When I want it to

Oh how I miss Christmas time in Cincy
Over the Rhine never looked so good to me
Oh how I miss that little city
Ice skating of Fountain Square
As they light the giant tree

It never snows in Cincinnati
It never snows for me
It never snows in Cincinnati
When I want it to

Lovers on the Run

The rocks cry out no hiding place
You can’t be lovers here today
I know they’re watching every move we make
Our vibrations give it away

I feel free when I’m with you
I feel free when I’m with you
The rocks cry out no hiding place
You can’t be lovers here today

I feel free when I’m with you
I feel free when I’m with you
Nobody knows the thing we do
I feel free when I’m with you

Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Run away

Dry bones in the valley Wake up Wake up Wake up Wake up Dry bones in the valley Wake up Wake up Wake up Wake up

I feel free when I’m with you
I feel free when I’m with you
I’d climb a mountain just to get to you
I feel free when I’m with you

Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Run away

The kingdoms say they’ll cut us out
If we keep messing around
But I don’t care about bad blood
We’ll just be lovers on the run

I feel alive when I’m with you
I feel the fire here with you
I feel revival here with you
I feel free when I’m with you

Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Run away

Memories

Black Birds fill the sky
Casting shadows or redemption
Sinking low and soaring high
As I embrace my own inventions

As I wander down the busy streets
The buildings reflecting you and me
When I think about it my heart sinks
Wrecking my weary soul with memories
Oh memories

As I regret I sit alone tonight
Behind an old pew, searching for some light
Tear me down fill me up
Help me unwind
Only you can hear the memory

As I wander down the busy street
The buildings reflecting you and me
When I think about it my heart sinks
Wrecking my weary soul with memories

As I wander down the busy streets
The buildings reflecting you and me
When i think about it my heart sinks
Wrecking my weary soul with memories
Oh memories

When I think about you
When I think about you

One Heart

Standing alone we may never sing again
Standing alone we may never win
Hand in hand we march the battle field together
We are millions
We are the revolution

We are the children of one heart
Beating to the same drum
We are the children of one love
Together we are strong

Standing as one we move oceans and mountains
Standing as one we begin again
Hand in hand we wade into the troubled waters
We are the future
We are the sons and daughters

Since You've Gone

I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone

Didn’t need a bag when you were leaving
I guess you packed your treasures up above
I smell you everytime I breathe in
The things the left aren’t enough

I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone
I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone

Didn’t mean to leave that space between us
Now everyday I reach out for your arms
I can’t help wishing you could hold me
Since I can’t all I do is mourn

I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone
I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone

Hurts too much just to miss you
Gotta see you again
Night falls
Tears start rolling
No, baby, this can’t be the end!

I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone
I can’t stop crying
Feels like I’m dying
Since you’ve gone
Since you’ve gone

Step Out of the Dark

In the dark, shadows all around
Monsters seem bigger than they really are
In the dark, I know he’s hiding out
I can hear him breathing behind my door
I feel your heat, down in my bones
Shining through my window I’m not alone
Sunshine seeps through my floor boards
This house is on fire. I can’t live here anymore

Time to wake up
The sun has dried up all the rain
It’s not cloudy anymore
Time to wake up
Let’s go out and play
Step out of the dark
You can’t hide there anymore

In your light
Flowers all around
You’re there to pick me up when I fall down
In your light
My demons can’t come out
All fears disintegrate
Ashes on the ground

Time to wake up The sun has dried up all the rain
It’s not cloudy any more
Time to wake up
Let’s go out and play
Step out of the dark
You can’t hide there anymore

Step out Step out Step out of the dark

Time to wake up
The sun has dried up all the rain
It’s not cloudy anymore
Time to wake up
Let’s go out and play
Step out of the dark
You can’t hide there anymore

Time to wake up
The sun has dried up all the rain
It’s not cloudy anymore
Time to wake up
Let’s go out and play
Step out of the dark
You can’t hide there anymore

Sweet Dreamer

[spoken]
It’s OK.
Just lie down.
Be still.
Concentrate on your breathing.

Take me to that quiet place
Pull me out to open space
Dreaming is my sweet escape
I live to dream
Why must I wake?

Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on
Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on

I float atop a sea of stars
I spiral through the Universe
In this dream-reality I am free to fall
No gravity. No way to stop

Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on
Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on

Take me to a higher place
Pull me off to outer space
I’m an alien who lost her way
Inside a world of mass decay

Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on
Lost Dreamer
Sweet Dreamer
Dream on

I live to dream. My sweet escape
I live to dream. My sweet escape
I live to dream. My sweet escape
I live to dream. May never wake

[spoken]
It’s OK.
Just lie down.
Be still
Concentrate on your breathing.
Rid your mind of all worldly thoughts.
Think about the stars above.
Think about the wind.
Think about the tree in your front yard.
Think about how we are all connected.
You don’t have to worry.
You can fall, fall, fall, asleep.
It’s time to fall asleep.
It’s time to close your eyes.
It’s time to enter a new world.
You’re an alien.
The truth is in your dreams.
You can live to dream.
You live in a dream.
It’s all a dream.
You don’t have to wake up.
You can sleep forever.

The Last Time

They say love is the catalyst for everything
Love, a song that I can’t wait to sing
Love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love

They say love is a many splendored thing
Love, not a silly childish fling
Where’s the love?
No, love ain’t what you give to me
I need love, love, love, love

I’m saying, bye, for the last time
Our first time was a mistake
I need someone who can shed light on all my depressing days
I won’t miss your deadly hold on me
My poor soul turned towards the grave
I’m saying, bye, for the last time
I’m saying, bye, for the very last time

Love, love, love, love Love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love Love, love, love, love
Where’s the love?
Love, love, love
Where’s the love?
Love, love, love

I won’t miss your deadly hold on me
My poor soul turned towards the grave
I’m saying, bye, for the last time
I’m saying, bye, for the very last time

Love, love, love, love

The Morning

Your joy will come in the morning
Don’t hide away from the pain
Your sun will shine in its glory
Don’t be afraid of the rays
Your path unwinds to the ocean
Run away
Ride the wave
Your joy will come in the morning
Don’t be afraid to rule the day

It is well
It is well
With my soul
With my soul
It is well
It is well
With my soul
With my soul

Your joy will come in the morning
Just stay awake ‘til sunlight breaks
The new day brings a new story
Just keep the faith
Today’s the day
Your path unwinds to the ocean
Sink right in
Begin again
Your joy will come in the morning
Don’t be afraid to rule the day

Let the wave wash over you
Let the light wash over you
Let the love wash over you
Let the joy wash over you

Your joy will come in the morning
Your sun will shine in its glory
Just stay awake ‘til the sunlight breaks
Your joy will come in the morning
Your joy will come in the morning
Your sun will shine in its glory
Just stay awake ‘til the sunlight breaks
Your joy will come in the morning

In the morning
In the morning
In the morning
In the morning
In the morning
The morning
