Lyrics

blind man

Written By: tim tuttle

i hear you said the deaf man/ i know exactly what it is that you're saying/ and i've thinking for a long time/ wondering about these games that we've been playing/ im on my knees- lord i'm dying/ i don't know which god i shud be praying/ i'd trade you gold for my salvation/ it seems such a low price to be paying....

CHORUS come a little closer-- get close to to me/ in my last breath on earth--give me clarity...

i see said the blind man/ i know exactly what it is you want to show me/are you a stranger-- have we met before?/ why you telling all these people that you know me/ you wanna dance--- you like to hustle-- what kind of bull you trying to throw me/ i'd like to travel across the universe-- but i don't think that you shud go with me... CHORUS

i'm alive screamed the dead man/ i know exactly why it is that you're crying/ if you see that i have failed--please know that i was always trying/ look at him--look right thru his eyes/ can you see the man is lying/ he asks for more in a world that's burning/ he asks for war when the are dying

come a little close--yeah get close to me / in my last breath on earth you gave me CLARITY

sail away

Written By: tim tuttle

i have spoken with an angel/ it was a voice i coulecognize/ i felt compelled to ask a question/ i've grown so weary of these earthly lies/is this world so complicated/ or have we made it so ourselves/ if we were inclined to ask forgiveness/ wud you be inclined to help/

SAIL AWAY repeat

I’VE CLOSED MY EYES AND SEEN THE FUTURE
IT’S A WORLD WHERE TRUTH PREVAILS
A WORLD THAT’S EQUAL FOR ALL ITS PEOPLE
A PLACE WHERE NOONE CAN FAIL
AND WE’LL CALL OUT FROM MOUNTAIN TOPS
LORD LOOK WHAT WE HAVE DONE NOW
JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD LOST US
WE FOUND A WAY TO LIVE TOGETHER SOMEHOW

sail away 6x

I HAVE LEARNED that TIME IS PRECIOUS
I WANT TO TAKE MY TIME AND LEARN TO BREATH
I HAVE SEEN THEM BURN down THE TEMPLES
AND DO THINGS TO THE EMPIRE I CANNOT BELIEVE
WE MUST CHANGE IN SPITE OF OURSELVES
AND LOOK FOR ANSWERS FROM ABOVE
THERE IS DANGER ON THE HORIZON
OUR SUCCESS SHOULD BE MEASURED IN LOVE

SAIL AWAY…

long way down

Written By: tim tuttle

It's been 22 summers since i first started thinking about leaving/ and the nights are getting warmer according to the weatherman i believe in/ but my souls so cold and i've been dreaming about the west/ and i spilled my tequila--oh lord i drank the rest/ it's been 22 summers and i'm just glad that i'm still breathing...

IT'S A LONG WAY DOWN... to the ground

It's been 22 autumns i've been watching this old tree grow so tall/ at night the coyotes howling-- sometimes i answer their call/ sitting and staring as the leaves begin to turn/ with some time on my hands i've got some time to burn/ i was thinking about leaving but man i just love the fall

IT'S A LONG WAY DOWN>. to the ground

It's been 22 winters winters since you and i first met/ i remember that day so well- it put a little spring in my step/ well it wasn't very long before you said you had to leave/ and i vaguely remember some story i never really believed/ young hearts are tender and sometimes it's just better to forget

CHORUS- It's a LONG way doooownn....

It's been 22 years now-- oh how the time just seems to fly/ there's beena million hellos and even more goodbyes/ well i've been so high and i've felt so low/ i've asked a million questions and I still don't seem to know/ you know i thought a lot about leaving but i'm glad i never tried

inside

Written By: tim tuttle

IT SEEMS LIKE FOREVER---BUT IT’S ONLY BEEN A WHILE

I’VE BEEN RUNNING ALL NIGHT LONG ---I’VE BEEN RUNNING LIKE A CHILD

IT FEELS LIKE TOMORROW—IT MAY NEVER COME

I’VE ALMOST FORGOTTEN----WHAT IT WAS I WAS RUNNING FROM………

ALL OF MY DREAMS….AND ALL OF MY HOPES

INSIDE I’M BURNING….I’M GOING UP IN SMOKE

AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO….NO, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO…

IF I COULD ONLY FIND MY WAY BACK TO YOU

I CAN TELL THAT I’VE BEEN SEARCHING— I JUST DON’T KNOW FOR WHAT

I CAN SEE THAT I ‘VE BEEN BLEEDING--- BUT I CAN’T SEEM TO FIND THE CUT

IF I CAN KEEP ON RUNNING— IT MIGHT LEAD ME SOMEWHERE NEW

IS THERE ANYWHERE IN THIS WORLD, MY LOVE —WHERE I’D RUN WITHOUT YOU ?

ALL OF OUR PASSION….AND ALL OF OUR LIES…

INSIDE WE’RE TURNING….AWAY FROM OUR LIVES

AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO…..NO I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO

IF I COULD ONLY FIND MY WAY BACK TO YOU.

IF I COULD ONLY FIND MY WAY BACK TO YOU….. FIND MY WAY FIND MY WAY…BACK TO YOU

MY HEART, MY MIND, MY BREATH, MY LIFE, MY LOVE,

MY DREAMS AND MY SOUL

AND EVERYTHING THAT MAKES ME WHOLE

IN THIS WORLD

I GIVE TO YOU, MY GIRL …I GIVE TO YOU, MY GIRL….I GIVE TO YOU….
