Track Name: Torn Wings
I saw an eagle fly
on torn wings
And it made me realize
it's not the crowns that make us kings

Open wide, and Divine comes in ...
Open wide, and Divine comes in ...

I saw an eagle fly
on torn wings
And it made me realize
it's not the body but the soul that sings

Open wide, and Divine comes in ...
Open wide, and Divine comes in ...

I saw an eagle fly
on torn wings
And it made me realize
it's not the past but the present that the future brings

Open wide, and Divine comes in ...
Open wide, and Divine comes in ...
Track Name: So Predictable
If it’s better to stay still, you’ll react
If I need to focus, you’ll distract
You’ll take a misplaced word, and make it fact

It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do
It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do

If she stands firm, your costume cracks
and a darkness at your roots is exposed
twisted words and the way you said them, you can’t take back

It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do
It’s a shame …

You want a prediction
I’ve got one for you
Keep bothering me and mine
I’m going to bother you

If she reaches out, your disease kicks in
If she nails you down, you distract again
If she’s too strong, you weasel in

It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do
It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do
It’s a shame, but I know what you’re gonna do
It’s a shame.
Track Name: In Another Universe
You look beautiful tonight
And your eyes are like stormy weather
when the sun is on the way

In another universe, they say
You and I are going out together
But not in this one, you say

I will love you forever
Love you ‘til time is done
Love you in another universe, yeah
Damn sure love you in this one

And somewhere we are dancing
and you're in my arms
and I’m your man.
Track Name: Tide Came In
A song came to my mind
all about how to be a man
I thought that all I had was time
so I just wrote it in the sand

And then then Tide came in, oh
I wrote it in the sand

The gods above
When they were coming up with their plan
All about the primacy of Love
But they just wrote it in the sand

And then the Tide came in, oh
They wrote it in the sand

[
And as the Tides come in
So they recede
And in the sand they leave behind
I’m just going to write the song again
]

A song came to my mind
all about how to be a man
I thought that all I had was time
so I just wrote it in the sand

And then then Tide Came In, oh
I wrote it in the sand

And then then Tide Came In, oh
I wrote it in the sand

And then then Tide Came In, oh
I wrote it in the sand
Track Name: Mama
Mama ...
Mama ...
Mama ...
Come on home ...

Papa's lonely ...
Papa's lonely ...
Lonely Lonely Lonely

Mama ...
Mama ...
Mama ...
Come on home ...

I'm a man like an anthem
powerful and proud
big and loud
bold and unbowed
and still I'm crying

Mama ...
Mama ...
Mama ...
Come on home ...

Papa's lonely ...
Papa's lonely ...
Lonely Lonely Lonely

Mama ...
Mama ...
Mama ...
Come on home ...
Track Name: The Way Is Wide
Some say deny,
Some say deliver,
Some say it’s a journey,
Some say a River,
And we eat the Bread
and we drink the Wine
dig up the earth
and support the vine,

The way is wide,
The way is wide to heaven

Some say it’s joy
some say suffer
Some say avoid
the passion we are given
And we warm in the sunlight
and draw down the moon
dance in the firelight
and die too soon

The way is wide
the way is wide to heaven

If there’s a heaven at all …
If there’s a heaven at all …
If there’s a heaven at all …
Good people meet there, one and all.

Some say do penance
some fight pollution
some take a chance
on absolution
we drink bitter tears
to remember the fallen
embrace our fears
follow our calling

The way is wide
The way is wide to heaven.
Track Name: Will It So
I’ve been down, many times before
Tell Her I love her, and then She shows me the door
Standing in the rain wondering, “What’s this for?”
And, “I don’t know if I can take it anymore.”

I’ve been dropped, many times before
Dig my way out and then She knocks out the floor
Laying on my back, wondering, “What’s this for?”
And, “I don’t know if I’m going to take it anymore.”

If there’s one thing that I’ve learned
In all my days
It’s that my life is not own
Unless I will it so
Track Name: Simple Song
Simple song … just two chords, and sing along
Simple song … simple words to say you make me strong
And that without you there’s no song at all …

Simple song … just two chords, and sing along
Simple song … simple words to say you make me strong
And that without you there’s no song at all …
Track Name: Water Always Makes Waves
countless crooked crosses
misty wraiths that slip my eye
a field of standing stones
marking souls who thought they could fly

firelight eyes are bending
abstract fabrics heaven tends
I never understood that happy endings
can only happen when there’s an end

they said mind like water
in the stillness you’ll be saved
but a river god’s daughter reminded me
water always makes waves

oh …
water always makes waves
oh …
water always makes waves
Track Name: Bwa-Oh
Bwa-oh ...

My friend, I see you stooping low
Like you've got something on your mind
My friend, I wish I could share your load
Seems like one of those things that's your own

But I want to tell you that I think you're doing fine
We're all born with our own mountains to climb
And I think you're doing fine

Bwa-oh ...

My friend, I see you sinking low
Wish I could be there by your side
My friend, then I could share your load
Follow your lead -- run, fight or hide

But I want to tell you that I think you're doing fine
We're all born with our own mountains to climb
And I think you're doing fine

Bwa-oh ...
Track Name: Vow
Since the day we met, we’ve stepped the spiral dance together
It just gets better with each turn of the wheel

When it’s dark, I’ll be your flame
When it’s dry, I’ll be your rain
When it’s cold, I’ll be your fire
And stay with you no matter how high you fly

I will be your faithful companion forever
And this is my solemn vow

When it’s dark, I’ll be your flame
When it’s dry, I’ll be your rain
When it’s cold, I’ll be your fire
And stay with you no matter how high you fly

And this is my solemn vow
