Track Name: You Found Her
A real man would see what you're going through.
A real man would be there holding you.
Lay your sword down, and remember where you found her love.
Remember where you found her.

Don't shake off my hand when I reach out for you.
Your lips can tell a lie, but your heart knows what's true.
Brave the fires under ground, to remember where you found her love.
Remember where you found her.

No they'll never, never take her love from me.
She asleep in a shell at the bottom of the sea.
And boy, before you drown you remember where you found her love.
Remember where you found her.
Track Name: Can I Cry?
I should of kissed you
when I had the chance
I should have dragged you out on the dance floor, mamma
for one more dance

I lay awake at night
and call you back to me
I know, I could be the man I couldn't be

The river's dried down to the bone
And if the rain don't fall down on it's own
I wonder..

How many times, oh
can i cry?
before my eyes go dry
How many glances will our love reveal?
before our hearts are sealed

I try and hold you
but you slip away
there were so many things I should have told you baby
to let you stay

I cast my love out
into the wind
I know, my true love will come back again

We left the garden all alone
and if the rain don't fall down on it's own
I wonder..

How many times, oh
can i cry?
before my eyes go dry
How many glances will our love reveal?
before our hearts are sealed

How many times, oh
can i cry?
before my eyes go dry
How many glances will our love reveal?
before our hearts are sealed
Track Name: Shattered Citadel
Don't believe in me
don't believe a word that I say
with a lock and key
you are coming, going away

and all the strangest sounds
the wind was blowing, moaning
sky come pouring down
like lovers always telephoning
and through the concrete ground,
life is growing

we began as dreams
and we returned as lovers
I don't care how it seems
or how it looks to others

Everywhere we go
we walk along with the ghost of an ocean
and everything we know
we learn through our devotion

with tied, shackled hands
you were drawn and exiled
gone across the sand
return with your head my divine child

it's where we were born
it's where we are belonging
our hearts were torn
and our love was stalling

What was it that I said
was it true?
or was I lying
feather neath your head
were you agreeing or denying
I breath along with you
I breath the same way you do
with your sleeping self
I wasn't to have your dreams too

we began to dream
and we awoke as lovers
is our love how it seems
or will there be others?
Track Name: Do You No Harm
I know you love me when I ask the stars above me
the love signs appear
my heart is beating with your pulse deep inside me
when the skies aren't clear

I'd give my soul just to lay down beside you
but you won't see me here
you're the only one who loves the way I do
the time is coming near

when the world melts away
you'll be coming to stay
in my arms
my love won't do you no harm

We used to swim in the rivers gentle current
and love each other there
my heart yearns for the time that we spent
in the cool night air

Now you won't come out to play
no matter what I say
you're so well armed
my love won't do you no harm

Oh come on woman I know you're so afraid
I won't deny your fear
and you been working as an emotional maid
but I 'aint hirin' here

I know you love me when I ask the stars above me
the right signs appear
my heart is beating with your pulse deep inside me
when the skies aren't clear

now baby lets' run away
you can always stay
in my arms
my love won't do you no harm
Track Name: When You Come Home
There is a great big sky above
a home on high
I'd spread my wings and fly away
and say that I be back some day
(I'll be back again some day)

But the wind would pound you
and the sea would drown you
and I have found you
tethered to a stone
oh, my love
when you come home
all of my love
when you come home

You know the face but not the name
how I appear
you've had to change to stay the same
throughout the years
through all the pain
(our tears, they fell like rain)
but how I miss you
I long to kiss you
I can't resist you
You may wander
you may roam
but all my love
when you come home

and when you come
the winter sun
we'll leave behind
can you forgive all that I've done
youth is so blind
you were always the one
and when you have come
(are you hungry?)
let me feed you
(lay your head down)
let me read to you
(and it's so)
it's so good to see you
after all these night alone
oh my love, when you come home
all of my love when you come home
all of my love when you come home
