Track Name: Sail On Sweet Soul
Sail on Sweet Soul



Down beside these rocks where waves crash like giants

Sits a man with his thoughts and a smile

Just a song in his heart and a ghost in his mind

A lifetime of memories on trial



Well the blue of his eyes matches that of the sea

Where he knew he always belonged

And he faces the wind that is whipping like sin

Like a king he takes his crown



And he says let these squalls please carry me away

Let my life be that of a hurricane

Oh I’m stepping out of line

Just to leave it all behind

So say a prayer for me as I drift out to sea

I’m leaving here tonight



Well if I should find your good graces in time

If I could right what I’ve done wrong

I’d change all your days in so many ways

To feel like an old familiar song

But the past is the past and the tides they all change

We all must float along

So I’ll face the wind that is whipping like sin

Sail on sweet soul sail on



And he says let these squalls please carry me away

Let my life be that of a hurricane

Oh I’m stepping out of line

Just to leave it all behind

So say a prayer for me as I drift out to sea

I’m leaving here tonight

He looked them in the eyes and he knew that they were gone

Just a gang of restless hearts and the beat of one good song

The train tracks ran through the middle of the earth

Chase them to the river’s edge just to see what they were worth

A few messages a day to see if they were still alive

Counting down the minutes to the bell that sounded right on time

And he said to his friend man I’m walking out the door

I keep spinning my wheels I know that we were meant for more



What do you say

We chase our dreams and run

There’s nothing left here for us now

Skin it man forget the past somehow

What’s done is done

We can’t get it back

So follow me across these tracks

We’ll live like thieves who fight the setting sun

Let’s move along



We’re burning through the scenes like a film we used to know

And we’re living in a dream hoping we don’t have to go

No I won’t stop now dodging trains that come our way

The devil in the night will lead us to a brand new day



What do you say

We chase our dreams and run

There’s nothing left here for us now

Skin it man forget the past somehow

What’s done is done

We can’t get it back

So follow me across these tracks

We’ll live like thieves who fight the setting sun

Let’s move along



And I’m wondering where this all will lead

If I’m fighting this alone

Then I turn and see these kids stand right by me

And I know we’re walking down that same old road

Not letting go



What do you say

We chase our dreams and run

There’s nothing left here for us now

Skin it man forget the past somehow

What’s done is done

We can’t get it back

So follow me across these tracks

We’ll live like thieves who fight the setting sun

Let’s move along

Oh I’m too deep into this so I’m long gone

Let’s move along
Track Name: Gold
Gold



Everything we

Everything we’ve worked for is gone

Except for this love

And all we chose to

All we chose to believe is all gone

Except for this love

Words are ringing in my ears

You failures and your fears

Will see the light of day

But tonight we wash them away



In desperation we all sing

And I would not change a thing

This was our road

And we paved it in gold



In these waters

In these waters clean and cool

We found this love

Across these oceans

Across these oceans I give to you

This undying love

We face a frightening road

With dangers nobody knows

But never alone

Yeah never alone



The earth could shake and slowly die

And I’d never question why

I’d just take hold of your hand

I’d just take hold of your hand

In desperation we all sing

And I would not change a thing

Yeah this is our road

And we paved it in Gold



We gave all we had

Through sunshine and rain

Through laughter and pain

We gave all we had

And if I should fall

If time slips away

When we’re old and grey

Oh my heart still beats true

I’m glad I fell with you
