Lyrics to Moonlight Breaks (2011)

 

Words Hang Heavy

 

Moonlight breaks as it hits the ocean

In the time it takes I'm in constant motion

These words hang heavy in my heart

 

On a night like this I could drive forever

Still I wish we could be together

This time is keeping us apart

 

You say that all my wisdom is forgotten / you don't wanna go you better not call my name

I lay my fortunes there with the four winds / you don't wanna go the distance

I think I'll leave my heartache on the bottom/ you don't wanna go you better not call my name

If I end up waiting you're hesitating/ you don't wanna go the distance

 

I'll tell you what it's a new sensation

Picture this as a confirmation

That I should have known this from the start

Yeah and then I set my soul on a new horizon

Your goodbye was a ship capsizing

Words hang heavy in my heart

 

You say that all my wisdom is forgotten / you don't wanna go you better not call my name

I lay my fortunes there with the four winds / you don't wanna go the distance

I think I'll leave my heartache on the bottom/ you don't wanna go you better not call my name

If I end up waiting you're hesitating/ you don't wanna go the distance

 

Moonlight breaks as it hits the ocean

In the time it takes I'm in constant motion

These words hang heavy in my heart

These words...

 

So we sing 'fo-co-hi-ho-am-so'...

'Fo-co-hi-ho-am-so'

Sweet honey child

'Fo-co-hi-ho-am-so'

Music hand-me-downs

'Fo-co-hi-ho-am-so'

Yeah that's it

 

 

To Be Loved

 

Down the valley of the September sun we ride

Along the winding road by the riverside

We go by the moon on the Abbey wall

Never felt so right before

 

To be loved, to be loved, to be loved by you...

 

We were lying in the shade of an old oak tree

On a day that the lord made for you and me

We open our arms and as we close our eyes

Yeah I know it never felt so right before

 

To be loved, to be loved, to be loved by you...

 

Yes I know you must be foolin'

When you say it's time to go

Yes I know you must be foolin'

When you say it's time to go

 

We were opening a bottle of French red wine

Playing my guitar while you clap in time

I wrote you a song in the afternoon

Yeah I know it never felt so right before

 

To be loved, to be loved, to be loved by you...

 

 

All That I Want

 

Yeah, all that I want is you

All that I need is you

Yeah, all that I want is you

All that I need is you

 

All I want

All I need

Give me more time baby

I'll make you mine

Yeah, all that I want is you

 

All I want

All I need

Give me more time baby

I'll make you mine

Yeah, all that I want is you

All that I want is you

 

 

I Believe

 

Sunrise on the Hudson River

Another hundred miles to go

Blue skies blue skies I'll soon be with her

She's with me everywhere I go

I've been away too long

 

Yes I believe I believe in love again

Oh I believe I believe in love

Yes I believe I believe in love again

Oh I believe in love again

 

Three long nights since I read your letter

I sing your words into the air

I'm alright yeah but I'll soon be better

When you wake up I'll be there

In the morning I'll be there

 

Yes I believe I believe in love again

Oh I believe I believe in love

Yes I believe I believe in love again

Oh I believe in love again

 

I know in time we'll make it

This ain't no bed of roses

Give me a chance I'll take it

Before the last door closes

I don't wanna say goodbye

 

Oh I believe I believe in love again

Yes I believe I believe in love

Ooh I believe I believe in love again

Yes I believe in love again

Oh I believe in love again

 

 

 

Make It Right

 

Let me down easy, let me in between

The things you say and the things you mean

 

I heard it all when I played the game

To laugh in the face of love is such a crying shame

 

Make it right

Gotta make it right

 

I lost my faith still I'm a spiritual man

There's too much that I don't understand

Still I pray cuz it's worth a shot

I pray to god of love say, 'for the love of god

 

Make it right

Gotta make it right

 

You lose the flame check your pilot light

Remember it's cold outside

And who's to blame better make it right

Swallow their pride

 

Let me down easy, let me in between

The things you say and the things you mean

Make it right, gotta make it right

 

Gonna make it right...

 

 

A Wasted Chance

 

A wasted chance will get you down

Move your feet and still you're losing ground

Know you're always a step behind

And in your quiet moments you back in time

 

We don't wanna feel it

We don't wanna say

But maybe we look forward to a rainy day

But oh there's a master plan from high above

That shows you where you stand

And what you're dreaming of

But oh a wasted chance will get you down

Will get you down

Ohhh get you down

 

Black Silk Spaghetti Curls

 

Black silk spaghetti curls across your sleeping eyes

You dream of little girls curled up on your thighs

Maybe tomorrow there'll be sunshine

Maybe your sorrow will be many miles behind

Black silk spaghetti curls across your sleeping eyes

 

Black silk spaghetti curls on a windswept day

Out here your love unfurls with every word you say

Maybe tomorrow there'll be good news

Maybe we'll borrow whatever we may lose

Black silk spaghetti curls on a windswept day

 

Black silk spaghetti curls across your sleeping eyes

You dream of little girls curled up on your thighs

Maybe tomorrow there'll be sunshine

Maybe your sorrow will be many miles behind

Black silk spaghetti curls across your sleeping eyes

 

 

Alchemist

 

Don't shoot the moon just to make the night faster

Don't reveal your heart too soon you star-crossed disaster

Down with your city walls and wrought iron fences

I must've climbed them all 'til I came to my senses

 

I'm over your fool's gold (and the promise of an alchemist)

I'm over your fool's gold (and the promise of an alchemist)

If the truth be told (this heartache was a catalyst)

I'm over your fool's gold (and the promise of an alchemist)

 

You said goodbye to the rhythm of a railway car

And the cold New York City light frozen in the reservoir

Who except the uncouth sleuth hound still cares (I do)

Bob Dylan played for nickels in a guitar case on Union Square

 

I'm over your fool's gold (and the promise of an alchemist)

I'm over your fool's gold (and the promise of an alchemist)

If the truth be told (this heartache was a catalyst)

I'm over your fool's gold (and the promise of an alchemist)

 

All this city life is just dressed up and high heels

Turning up but shutting down a hamster in a spinning wheel

I miss the moonlight and the cut grass under my feet

I know I said it twice but it helps to repeat

 

Oooh...of an alchemist...

 

 

 

How A Woman Loves A Man

 

You're my queen

I want to show you what you really mean

You appeared like a good dream

You've got a hold on me

 

And when I hold you wanna hold you tight

And when I touch you gonna tough you right

It's like I told you when you're outta sight

I still think of you

 

Yeah baby, show me how a woman loves a man...

 

Yes I knew when I first laid eyes on you

You're gonna be mine all mine someday

Yes I know when I first laid eyes on you,

You're gonna be mine all mine I say

Oh, I hope and I pray for your good love

 

Now we can take it slow

Or we can take it fast

You could maybe meet me halfway baby

I'm waiting like an empty glass

 

And when I hold you wanna hold you tight

And when I touch you gonna tough you right

It's like I told you when you're outta sight

I still think of you

 

Yeah baby, show me how a woman loves a man...

 

Wanna tell me but I know you gotta show me...

 

 

Sweet Ball And Chain

 

There goes my flame

With the driving rain

Just like a hurricane

She's gone again

 

Yeah she took my name

And swore she would remain

My sweet ball and chain

She's gone again

 

She hopped that train

And did not explain

Still I wrack my brain

She's gone again

 

Cold wind sustains

And blows across the plains

Always feels the same

When she's gone again

 

We left Pennsylvannia

In search of financial gain her

Love started to strain her

She's gone again (farewell)

 

Don't want cocaine

For to numb my pain

Of this old refrain

She's gone again (goodbye)

 

She's gone again...

 

Start A Fire

 

You could start a fire in me

With one word by the dogwood tree

Green eyes that look at me

Yeah, you could start a fire in me

 

So turn up your radio now

Baby turn your lights down low

Tell me something that I don't know

Yeah you could let your feelings show

 

I'll bring the chain of all these foolish games

That we play thinking we'll get it wrong

I'll break the chain of all these stupid games

That we play thinking we'll get it right

 

So baby let that wishbone break

Give me all that I can take

We gonna make the four walls shake

Give me all that I can take

 

I'll bring the chain of all these foolish games

That we play thinking we'll get it wrong

I'll break the chain of all these stupid games

That we play thinking we'll get it right

 

You could start a fire in me

Hear me now cuz I'm falling free

You could start a fire in me

 

 

Walk With Me

 

Won't you walk with me

Cuz I'm lonely and I have no place to go

Won't you rescue me

Cuz I'm lost at sea and the red sun's sinking low

 

I'll be over the moon you're under the sun

I won't give my heart away to anyone

Other than you

 

Won't you talk with me

And maybe I can see that this lonesome road I'm on

Will maybe always be

Just a little part of me but that broken feeling is gone

 

I'll be over the moon you're under the sun

I won't give my heart away to anyone

Other than you

 

 

I want you here by my side

 

I want you here by my side

To help to cross where the river is wide

To put all my faith in you as my guide

I want you here by my side

 

I want to lay down my head

And try to remember the things that we said

The warm summer sunset burns calico red

I want to lay down my head

 

(cuz) lately I feel like a man on a mission

baby my mission was you

whenever I told you that something was missin'

all that was missin' was you

 

I want to turn back the clock

Hear love in your voice when I hear you talk

When love was a doorway and opportunity knocked

I want to turn back the clock

 

(cuz) lately I feel like a man on a mission

baby my mission was you

whenever I told you that something was missin'

all that was missin' was you
