Track Name: Diamond Days
I always thought these diamond days were here to stay,
But they went away
When you took them from me.
I could never use the word necessity,
And I still believe we’re free;
Our choices standing by us.

Ooooh a low
Can take a hold,
When you let sit and drag inside your skin.
But take the time
To find a sign
To bring you back to simple circles spinning thin,
(Raising your shoulders)
Let the light upon your face come swimming in.

I carry with me clutter from another day,
It speaks as if to say
As you get old, the past grows stronger.
Tendencies and habits make the most of us
Until we learn to trust ourselves,
And let the wind’s song move us.

Ooooh a low
Can take a hold,
When you let sit and drag inside your skin.
But take the time
To find a sign
To bring you back to simple circles spinning thin,
(Raising your shoulders)
Let the light upon your face come swimming in.

I always thought these diamond days were here to stay,
But they went away
When you took them from me.
Track Name: Soaring Sets Of Song
Open hearts come
They’re spiraled out to you
Just when you think you’re all alone
(You can send)
You send out
The words you hear inside your mind
That tell you
Soaring sets of song
Soaring sets of song

I got facets of the earth
Spinning silently inside
While the world stays still and watches,
Waiting for me to go blind

I’ve seen the words along the river
That slips along the times
That I remember when I was young,
I remember when I was young

They say either you’re unprepared
Or you do not dare to let your spirit fly
But I’ve got a better mean in mind,
A better mean in mind

Open hearts come
They’re spiraled out to you
Just when you think you’re all alone
(You can send)
You send out
The words you hear inside your mind
That tell you
Soaring sets of song
Soaring sets of song

There are problems in this life
They sneak up from behind
With teeth like knives, foam out the mouth,
Bitter cold and unkind

But they aren’t what make or break you
It’s the way that you take ‘em out
Do you kill ‘em while you’re smiling,
Or do you sink into careless doubt?
(Let me tell ya)
You gotta raise your fist into the air
You can’t let ‘em get you down
No one else’s words will do
Everything is up to you

Open hearts come
They’re spiraled out to you
Just when you think you’re all alone
(You can send)
You send out
The words you hear inside your mind
That tell you
Soaring sets of song
Soaring sets of song
Track Name: Don't You Tell Me (That Our Love Ain't True)
It feels so good to be out on my own
But it hurts the way you leave me all alone
(All alone)
So know there’s no-one laughing anymore
And know it was nothing as it seemed

So tell your mother I never knew the things that you knew
And tell your sister I never knew what you were made of

But don’t you tell me that our love ain’t true
(No, No)
Don’t you tell me that our love ain’t true
(No, No)
Oh my baby I’m in love with you
I love all the things you do

I try to call you on the telephone
You don’t answer; you won’t let yourself be known
(I’ll let it be known)
I got no choice but to let it be
To hope one day you will open up and see

So tell your mother I never knew the things that you knew
And tell your sister I never knew what you were made of

But don’t you tell me that our love ain’t true
(No, No)
Don’t you tell me that our love ain’t true
(No, No)
Oh my baby I’m in love with you
I love all the things you do

Say lay on the tracks that you lie on side by side on
Tend the gardens on the other side of the road
You gotta know that in this world you feel to live
But no matter how you feel, you’re gonna get what you give
Lord, it takes a lot to get me down on my knees and
Pray, Pray, Pray
And I’m doing it today


The pain is unbearable when everybody sees just what you know
Like a dagger through a crystal ball made of salt and sand
Smooth cuts, single the shape of the eyes that have been watching
Watching watching watching watching watching
Count as many as you can see…


Don’t you tell me that our love ain’t true
(No, No)
Don’t you tell me that our love ain’t true
(No, No)
Oh my baby I’m in love with you
I love all the things you do


Don’t you tell me that our love ain’t true
(No, No)
But I gotta do what I gotta do
So my babe I’m moving on from you
I sing:
Ah, ah, a a ah!
Track Name: Scarlet Rain
Scarlet Rain
You ain't never seen the sun
And if you want to be in this world

You better smile
And turn away
And believe
In better days

I never thought it'd end like this
If you want to be in this world

I fell in love with your forgetful eyes
In a town, where you are recognized
For your lovely bones I cried

I took a drive to places we once knew
Crippled trees and crippled memories
I prayed to god to strike you down
