Track Name: Sing Your Name
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
Track Name: Water In The Well
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
Track Name: Down To The River
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
Track Name: Come Running
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
Track Name: Any Old Time
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
Track Name: Made Of Gold
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
Track Name: You Only See
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
