Go To Me 03:56
Wake, with your head where the light always crept through the glass, to your bed. And you breathe, and your breath it is mine. And your heart, when it stops, when it starts, when it's fast it's mine. Be in the eye, where the war and the cry and the truth are at rest, and your oughts and your best, they are mine. If you're shy, if the streaks in the sky shake the windows... Know, I was like you, and the sun came down and the dust blew around over me. Come beside me, with the pen in your hand and your hand in my hand go to me Let me give, let me talk, let me live in your pillow. Kill your fear, whisper words in your ear that your kite's in a box, that your boat's in the docks and you're sleeping. Oh, you got nothing, you got nothing on me, that's the best place that you'll ever be. Come beside me, with the pen in your hand and your hand in my hand go to me
2.
I am a collector of your love from a whimsy to a name that you have heard of the heart of you I snatched is just a button on my sash so I could soak a tear I am a collector of the fear that everything I'm biding for is not here and losing all this sleep to think that nothing's mine to keep and there are none for me no good for me Come away from nothing, I can show you Come away from nowhere, I will loan you There had been some plans that I had made where we married in a church in our hometown but if it came to pass it was as if I'd never asked and I was left alone Alright, alone

Threads 02:38
I am sold to the open I am holding a sail to the sky I won't trade for a closing I don't want to sell bread for mud pies My mind is broke and I'm not a handyman I'm not a wealthy man but you can with sticks and hands come stitch a pulse where the threads have ran You are not a fallen angel you are not far away from my side and breathing soft in the morning blowing off all the scales of nighttime And I can't hold my own when the blood is there when tiny eyes do stare but you can with joyful hands come wrap a blanket around this man
4.
It came as a storm on the edge of something a plough through the field, and the farmhand's gone running and the cedars are a-shaking like men at their judgement bowing to the howl as the dust churns about them But where is your sound? Ruthless, and cackling, and swept across the grassland the fire comes burning and screaming like a madman and the ground is a-trembling and split apart at the seams carving a chasm and groaning in the shudder But where is your sound? Restless, my face is wrapped up like a widow gazing from the mouth of the cave, open window and quiet as the land relenting its fury your song is as silent as the heart it is stirring And there is your sound
