On a hill that overlooks the town In the still of mourning laid you down In the days upon your mother's knee Would she say these words recalled to me? You go round and round in circles And you give it all away But one day if you're lucky boy Your friends will sing your name So they came from miles all around And they gave their hearts up with the sound And the best of tales were told in kind That you left with those who stay behind You go round and round in circles And you give it all away But one day if you're lucky boy Your friends will sing your name So we'll raise our glasses and our voices in the sun For there will come a reckoning for each and everyone So we go into the passing light And we know the bars won't close tonight You go round and round in circles And you give it all away But one day if you're lucky boy Your friends will sing your name Your friends will sing your name Your friends will sing your name Now your time is short and quickly gone But your life is greater than the sum We go round and round in circles And we give it all away But one day with a heart of joy Yes I will sing your name Said one day with a heart of joy Yes I will sing your name

Just a man with fortune on his back Through the badlands, the hills of burning black Wooed a sweetheart with that snake-oil you sell But there's no love in her eyes and there's no water in the well Hearts and houses accrue the dust of years Empty promises and payment in arrears With a smile all misgivings you could quell But there's no love in her eyes and there's no water in the well In the well In the well In the well Well there's no love in her eyes - no water in the well So you lay there beside those broken dreams Sheets entangled with the shards of bitter scenes Rueful glances at the tolling of the bell But there's no hope in her heart and there's no water in the well In the well In the well In the well Well there's no hope in her heart - no water in the well Just a man with fortune on my back Leaving town now, all in ruin, all in wrack See her standing on the steps of that hotel But there's no love in her eyes as she is saying "Fare thee well" Fare thee well Fare thee well Fare thee well Well there's no love in her eyes In the well In the well In the well Well there's no love in her eyes - no water in the well No water in the well No water in the well No water in the well

Oh my God I can't believe it's true Black and white the truth is absolute Shake my bones and leave them where they lay Shrouded in those sins that cover me We went down, down to the river We went down, down to the river We went down, down to the river And washed them away The water's edge reflects my own regrets Will they fade beneath that cold caress? Where's that final answer I need most? Where's my father, son, my holy ghost? We went down, down to the river We went down, down to the river We went down, down to the river And washed them away Do you pray that all your faith's not wasted in a book? It's a shame that all you gave was less than what you took Take me to that dark secluded wood Tell me that inside I might be good Hear that church bell tolling for the brave Tally my misdeeds that you forgave We'll go down, down to the river We'll go down, down to the river We'll go down, down to the river (and wash them away) We'll go down, down to the river (and wash them away) We'll go down, down to the river And wash them away

Come Running 05:55
Down low, where do you go? I'll be coming home Heartache coming your way No you're not alone Head down working it out Time is not a friend Head turned, when will you learn? Hold it to the end Now's the time to walk away And I've not seen the sun for days But I'll come running when you call my name My soul waiting in hope You'll be coming round A home you could outgrow A castle falling down My heart cracking in half There's another way And so here I go Running down the road again Now's the time to walk away And I've not seen the sun for days But I'll come running when you call my name Brighter and brighter My horizon's widening And call me a liar But just call me and I'll come running Now's the time to walk away And I've not seen the sun for days But I'll come running when you call my name Now's the time to walk away And I've not seen the sun for days But I'll come running when you call my name Now's the time to walk away And I've not seen the sun for days But I'll come running when you call my name

Any Old Time 05:46
Now here we come with revelry's rebellion in our hearts 'Cause here we know just where we stand - it's over by the bar Reflected years encroaching on the faces by the stage The same old fear's been coming here since we were underage We're going home Sally, home baby Coming on down the way Home Sally, home baby Any old time of day While there's whiskey in the water Well the band are gonna play 'Til we go home Sally, home baby Any old time - any old time of day Well the music's so old fashioned someone's playing a guitar For all we care speed garage is a place you park the car There are no turning tables we're just moving in reverse We've been so long together, do we make each other worse? We're going home Sally, home baby Coming on down the way Home Sally, home baby Any old time of day While there's whiskey in the water Well the band are gonna play 'Til we go home Sally, home baby Any old time - any old time of day I'll lower my defences and let you in tonight But buried in my armour I'll be doing fine Now by morning all the tables smashed to kindling in the hearth I'll do my convalescing keep my spirits in a jar 'Cause what's a bowl and punch or two between a group of friends? And when the sun goes down we're gonna start it all again We're going home Sally, home baby Coming on down the way Home Sally, home baby Any old time of day While there's whiskey in the water Well the band are gonna play 'Til we go home Sally, home baby Any old time - any old time of day

Turn all the lights down and strike up the band Ours was a love neither governed nor planned Gripped by the feelings we could not control Your eyes shining blue and your hair made of gold Gold, gold, gold It's made, it's made of gold Burn down the houses and scatter the herd Him over me was the place you preferred Heartbreak confirmed but could not be consoled A band on your finger, a chain made of gold Gold, gold, gold It's made, it's made of gold It's made, it's made of gold Gold, gold, gold It's made, it's made of gold It's made, it's made of gold It's made, it's made of gold Turn all the lights down and strike up the band Feel in the dark for the hold of my hand Nothing there now but the reasons you told Why your heart is so heavy, your love's made of gold Gold, gold, gold It's made, it's made of gold It's made, it's made of gold

You Only See 05:34
Well all the days and all the nights are going by Help for that never-ending wander in your eye I tried to give you everything your heart desired Why did you throw all of your hopes onto the pyre? When the morning comes between us Do you just see what you want to see? 'Cause you know I want to love you But I just don't have the energy So there's a burden in a love you could defend Lo and behold you went and fucked it up again High time for you to go and shake it out the door I don't care where you go you can't stay here no more When the morning comes between us Do you just see what you want to see? 'Cause you know I want to hate you But I just don't have the energy You only see what you want to see You only see what you want to see You only see what you want to see Well can you feel it in the beating of your heart? Tell me your truth and I will take it all apart So is it easier to move on down the line? Hold everything you have, it's yours until it's mine When the morning comes between us Do you just see what you want to see 'Cause you know I want to love you But I just don't have the energy When the morning comes between us Do you just see what you want to see 'Cause you know I want to hate you But I just don't have the energy You only see what you want to see You only see what you want to see You only see what you want to see
