Blind Boy I had a boy walk into my life He told me, "Girl, wanna be my wife?" And I replied, "Let's give it a try" I'll be your woman and you be my man Exchanging everything between our hands But when night was day, he ran away And I don't know if you'll ever see Just what you lost when you lost me I think of all the things you said we'd do Like drive across the land of brown and blue But on that day, you gave it away And I don't know if you'll ever see Just what you lost when you lost me And I don't wanna write you any more songs 'cause life is short and it's been way too long With you and me, indefinitely And I don't know if you'll ever see Just what you lost when you lost me

Love and Loss and Love There are a million reasons why this should work
 So, like a fire, this season’s gonna hurt
 As you look away these eyes begin to burn 
Yeah, for a long long night I twist and turn Discovering things, quite plain, unseen before 
Drinking in water not for sale in stores 
To be with or without you, I cannot afford
 Under this heat I twist and change my form And these are the tales of love and loss and love We are a weary field of flowers crushed And we are all children without a dad or mum We are all looking for our descending dove So unscrew your hinges, scrape away the moss
 This is the day that love will follow loss 
And with trumpets and harps, give your chains a final toss 
We will not fold to bribes of candy floss
 Or to boys who don’t even care about us And these are the tales of love and loss and love We are a weary field of flowers crushed And we are all children without a dad or mum We are all looking for our descending dove

Running On My Own I'm running on my own now I'm running out of steam I'm learning how to row now Can't bring about a breeze Did you let me go, leave me alone? I pull a heavy load now I drag along my feet Forgotten how to look out Forgotten how to breathe Did you let me go, leave me alone? Where did our stars go to? Why I don't I see them here at night? And why am I standing here alone When you are somewhere Right around the corner waiting for me Knowing I am waiting for you? I'm running on my own now Where did our stars go to? Why I don't I see them here at night? And why am I standing here alone When you are somewhere Right around the corner waiting for me Knowing I am waiting for you?

To Know You You gave me your heart on the first day of March And I gave you mine at the same time And who am I to know, who am I to know you? We talked about our secrets and the cure for pain We talked about the future and we felt the same And you live upon a mountain in a flowerbed And I'm singing in this valley 'til one day we wed And who am I to know, who am I to know you? Who am I to know, who am I to know you?

Drawbridge I wish there was a drawbridge and the Tasman was a moat And I wish I could be with you less aeroplane or boat And the longer I am a loner, the slipperier the slope And I wish there was a drawbridge and our fears were the moat I wish I was a butterfly and you were one too But as it is, we don't know howtofly; we're only cocoons And the longer I am a loner the less I'll need you I wish there was a drawbridge but we let go too soon I wish there was a drawbridge between hopeless and hope And I wish there was a drawbridge and my tears were the moat

Hibernate Why do I feel tired at 22 Like all my dreams fell through? Like my heart wears out in its cage? Oh, it's got nothing to do with age Why do I give myself away Entirely, every day? Someone, hand me a locket, I need to pocket Something beautiful today 'cause I gave my heart away I gave my heart away And we all gotta do that someday But for now I hibernate Why do I deny that I'm afraid To kiss you then just walk away Looking over my shoulder, I will wait 'til I am older For this game I don't know how to play 'cause I gave my heart away I gave my heart away And we all gotta do that someday But for now I hibernate 'cause I gave my heart away I gave my heart away And we all gotta do that someday But for now I hibernate

Mother No matter where I go, I still don't know Am I home? Seems the thing that slows my will to grow Is my need to know And why is it when I cry at night It's your name I find? And until again it's you and I… I spent a month of time well below What is right Oh, and by the end of it, my body was sick And white And why is it when I cry at night It's your name I find? And until again it's you and I… No matter where I go, no matter where I go No matter where I go, I don't know No matter where I go, I still don't know Am I home?

What We Were You and me, we were meant to be Come on babe, you know this is how it goes So far into it, stuck at the hip for so long Now there's no room for this girl in your world With my bones in your hands, I no longer stand Am I beaten babe? Please don't say it's the end My heart up your sleeve, I slip through the weave and beat Don't you know by now, I'll always believe? And what word will remind you Of what we were? What word will remind you Of what we were? And how long will it take you To get what we were? With my bones in your hands, I no longer stand Am I beaten babe? Please don't say it's the end My heart up your sleeve, I slip through the weave and beat Don't you know by now, I'll always believe? And what word will remind you Of what we were? What word will remind you Of what we were? And how long will it take you To get what we were?

That Was You Before you went away I wanted to say to you You had the sweetest smile of anyone I knew Yeah, that was you Before you braved that day and your heart turned blue Our souls, they prayed for grace but none of that came through Yeah, that was you

Undone For a long time, I don't know why But you came by me You came by me As you chased, I shut tight my eyes But you still found me You still found me All my flaws, all my flaws undone In the fights I held up my pride But you unwound me You unwound me And in the starlight, I can't deny That you surround me You surround me I am yours, I am yours undone I am yours, I am yours undone For a long time, I don't know why But you came by me You came by me

The End of An Age The end of an age Your voice slipped softly inside my cage And unhinged my lock, turned a page I start over again The end of an age A whole summer I spent alone and afraid Right here take my life, turn a page I start over again And though all things have an end I won't cry, I will lift up my eyes And though, my love, you will die So will I and then we'll be alive The end of an age The clock struck midnight and your love went away I thought when you came you would stay I start over again And though all things have an end I won't cry, I will lift up my eyes And though, my love, you will die So will I and then we'll be alive
