Tomorrow, tomorrow, does not come too soon When tomorrow, tomorrow, I get to see you Tomorrow, tomorrow, comes and it goes Something my love surely don’t My lover, my lover, comes from far away My lover, my lover, I’m seeing him today My lover, my lover, has come a long way Think I’ll greet him with a smile on my face The time has, the time has, gone by so quickly The time has, the time has, gone by so slow The time has not been making any sense at all But when you’re here, somehow we know it all. I love you, I love you, my darling it’s true I love you, I love you, please say you do I love you, I love you, come tell me true: Do you love me, do you love me The way I love you? Do you love me the way I love you?

Long Gone 02:40
It was dawn, you were gone down a long highway You tried to wake me in the middle of the night just to say “Farewell” But I was so damn tired that it didn’t take, You walked out of the door with no words, just a story to tell. And I never thought I could feel so clean I feel like I’m in love and I’m seventeen I rolled out of bed in the middle of the day Put a kettle on the stove and some dough in to bake It got so warm, I threw the windows wide And I thought I heard your motorcycle rollin’ through the sky & Never mind the fact that I thought I knew you so well You couldn’t even find yourself and I could not tell So what’s the use in words if they cannot spell out our happy destiny I see your face on the screen I hear your voice as you call in my dreams And that’s how you still come to wake me in the night So long - long gone And I never thought I could be so clean I feel like I’m in love & I’m just a baby

There’s peace by the river, That’s why I come home It opens my heart, It melts even stone There’s love in the valley, Like the heat in your eyes It’s hot as the sun, The space between my thighs Oh, I think I could love you, Think I already do So come on & show me how well you know me even though this is new There’s light in the darkness, shining on through the night Out on the horizon where adventure’s in sight And I know I can feel you right here by my side You can’t taste it or see it, but love can never hide Is this what it feels like to choose? There is a space in my heart & it’s the perfect fit for you You see me darlin & I see you & it’s clear that this here love affair Just isn’t through So I smile for a while as I watch you riding on & baby I cry for a while when I realize you’re gone But tomorrow soon, I’ll see you again And we’ll play our favorite game, it’s called Never Pretend I think I could love you Know I already do You made it so easy You know how to please me You know that is true.

Safe & Sound 03:54
Listen to the river as it winds on down Climbing up the sides of the mountain, feet press into the cold, hard ground And my love for you is profound And I feel safe and sound Walking down Flat Rock Run, knowing the earth is round To the falls of love, we’re forever bound Said my love for you is profound And I feel safe and sound Only drink the water where it rises from the ground And only eat the fruit where the seeds of love are found My love for you is profound And I feel safe and sound

The Same 03:29
I lay your bones beside the river Water washes over your ashes and your skin I think of all the times I let you in I take your heart, your beating heart To the home we used to live in Water washes over my feet, carries me downstream And in the end, all is known All the cards have been shown And this is not a winning kind of game When you drowned yourself in alcohol I just knew I’d never be the same, no There are times you’re still inside me, your voice still rattles through the halls Echoing out of your room, bouncing off the walls So I drink this one in memory Of the good times, long gone, And the ones that linger on and on This is my heart, my beating heart And it still loves you through the pain I tried to stop, tried to stop Still it loves you all the same I enter through my wound To follow you to your grave In the end, all is known, All the cards have been shown And this is not a winning kind of game When you drowned yourself in alcohol I just knew I’d never be the same This is my heart, my beating heart And it still loves you through the pain I tried to stop, tried to stop Still it loves you all the same I enter through my wound To follow you to your grave

Sandy 02:45
The hurricane hit like the horsemen rode in The coastline was buried alive Manhattan sunk, fire stations were burning Deliveries could not arrive My friends were alright, they had power and wine They had food and no reason to cry An extra day on their weekend, a mini-vacation They will come out when the subways are dry My love, however, high in the mountains Was hit like a steam-rolling train My mind takes me from the best to the worst case I have not heard from him in days I call all the people who may have heard from him I reach out in so many ways I call the state trooper, but he knows no better, Says, “Ma’am, the best you can do is pray” Oh God All I can do is pray

Darling, where do you go when the light is gone and the moon is low Darling, where do you go out in the dark this time in the evening? And what should I do with our love when the demons run through your heart? Darling, where do you go when the day is young and the sun is low? Darling, where do you go out in the morning before the first sound of the crow? Babe, I don’t want to fight I just want to hold you and let you know Everything will be alright And when the last skeleton goes, I want to welcome you home Cause darling I do, I do love you And I do not lie to you like you’re used to Darling I do, I do love you Through and through Is the light rising or falling? You know I can’t tell which way the days run. And here you come wearing a smile time for the joy to return And when the reapers comes to my door, I’m going to stand tall and true And tell him that I still adore you Even after all he’s put you through. Cause darling I do, I do love you And I do not run from you like you’re used to. Darling, darling I do, and I will not beat you down like you’re used to Darling, darling I do, and I will give you my heart to hold on to So tell me where, where do you go? Oh, where, where do you go? Darling, where, where do you go?... Darling, where do you go when the light is gone, and the moon is sinking low...
