How does it feel? (ASCAP, 2013)
Please tell me just a little about yourself tell me what your name is tell me of your health and tell me of the things that make you smile who you're chasing through your dreams who you forget about after a while
Tell me of that space behind your mind the place i'll never go the place where i would find the part of you that keeps of draggin' on as all your man-made structures wear away and fall right through your arms
and how does it feel? Tell me: How does it feel to be alive?
have you ever wanted to go back back to some other time and re-asses the facts rebuild that crumbling mountain you stand on but somewhere in your mind you know your mountain's coming down and so you run
breathless you will stumble to the shore helpless you will know that you can be no more you'll see the ancient churning of a living boundless sea
its you and you alone that this is for you the ancient sand blown on that windswept shore and me the rain that fell down on you then as we tumbled to the sea i know that everything that's you is me
so how does it feel? Tell me: how does it feel To be alive? ___
When Home is a long way off (Ascap, 2013)
When home is a long way off and love's left you down and out When night climbs up on your back and tears you down
When no friend is left in sight. The light from your lamp's gone out and there's no place left to hide and darlin' there's no way out
And you wanna know who will take you control who will take you home tonight
And you wanna go so you start to roll but you can't escape 'til it's time
Storm tide will ebb and fade ripple out to the sun so here we are and see we've just begun
So show me those pale blue eyes alive as the night grows thin Take me back to that place Show me what might have been
So he could've been a cheater he was a liar and a thief and he took all your best love and he left you on the street and you say
why? why? why me?
You say that you loved him but it sure don't look that way Now he's taken all he had and He ain't Comin' back this way
and you say "Why?" you say Why? you say Why? Why me?
you say Why? you say Why? you say Why? Why me?
You oughta know that you're not alone At the end of the night you're not alone You oughta see there's no chain that could set you free you're a stream that's a flowin' right along
You ought see you can start again You can strike out on the road, you're not alone. You oughta see you can be your worst enemy It's a train you're a'towin' right along
You oughta know that you're not alone At the end of the night you're not alone. You oughta see there's no sole possibility No one direction leads you home ___

how we ride and we roll and we don't know just how far we should go now i've been riding so hard for so long my friend and i'll ride it out until the end but would you take me in again?
oh i've fallen i've fallen so far my friend but i'm getting up and i'm getting well again
