The Dutchman

The Dutchman's not the kind of man
Who keeps his thumb jammed in the dam
That holds his dreams in
That's a secret only Margaret knows
 
When Amsterdam is golden in the summer
Margaret brings him breakfast, she believes him
He thinks the tulips bloom beneath the snow
He's mad as he can be, Margaret only sees that sometimes
Sometimes she sees her unborn children in his eyes
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
Dear Margaret remembers that for me
 
The Dutchman still wears wooden shoes
And his cap and coat are patched with the love
Margaret sewed there
Sometimes he thinks he's still in Rotterdam
 
He watches tugboats down canals
And calls out to them when he thinks he knows the Captain
Margaret comes to take him home again
Through the unforgiving streets that trip him
Though she holds his arm
Sometimes he thinks he's alone and he calls her name
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me
 
The winter whirls the windmills 'round
She winds his muffler tighter, they sit in the kitchen
Some tea with whiskey keeps away the dew
 
He sees her for a moment, he calls her name
And she makes the bed up, singing some old love song
She learned it when the song was very new
He hums a line or two, they hum together in the dark
The Dutchman falls asleep, Margaret blows the candles out
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me
 
Let us go to the banks of the ocean
Where the walls rise above the Zuider Zee
Long ago, I used to be a young man
And dear Margaret remembers that for me

how about we help each other out?

we've all been down this road before
we've all walked here alone what for
if you're on this path somebody will be too
so take their hand walk each other through
let's not leave each other alone anymore
 
how about we
try it all again?
even though the world may be pushing us back
try it all again
don't give up
how about we
help each other out?
'cause god knows how much we've all been thrown down
help each other out
get back up
don't give up
 

God of Wine

Every thought that I repent
There's another chip you haven't spent
And you're cashing them all in
Where do we begin. To get clean again
Can we get clean again
I walk home alone with you
And the mood you're born into
Sometimes you let me in
And I take it on the chin
I can't get clean again.
I want to know, Can we get clean again
The God of Wine comes
crashing through the headlights of a car
that took you farther than
you thought you'd ever want to go
We can't get back again
We can't get back again
She takes a drink and then she waits
The alcohol it permeates
And soon the cells give way
And cancels out the day
I can't keep it all together
I know...I can't keep it all together
And the siren's song that is your madness
Holds a truth I can't erase
All alone on your face
Every glamorous sunrise
Throws the planets out of line
A star sign out of whack
A fraudulent zodiac
And the God of Wine
is crouched down in my room
You let me down, I said it
Now I'm going down
And you're not even around
And I said no
I can't keep it all together
I know, I can't keep it all together
And there's a memory of a window
Looking through I see you
Searching for something
I could never give you
And there's someone who
understands you more than I do
A sadness I can't erase
All alone on your face
 

Transcend

Another yellow cab takes me back
But it is what it is, What's done is done
I'm not used to this, freedom
But it is what it is, the meter runs
I'm feeling numb
 
Tell me that this all means something
Tell me there's light at the end
Tell me that I won't be here dying
On this ride maybe I can begin to transcend, to transcend
 
Maybe years from now we'll look back
And learn to forgive, this broken pact
Suitcase in the rain, moving on
Cause it is what it is, What's done is done
Sometimes we're wrong
 
Tell me that this all means something
Tell me there's light at the end
Tell me that I won't be here dying
On this ride maybe I can begin
 
And I'll find that grace, in another place
There's a chance out there that I've gotta take
And I'll find that grace, in another place
 
Tell me that this all means something
Tell me that there's light at the end
Tell me that I won't be here dying
On this ride maybe I can begin to transcend
 

Playing on My Mind

It's not that I think of you
Because of things out there to remind me
It's not that I miss you, girl
I'm out of love that way
It's not that I see your face
In every place now, somehow it finds me
It's not what you think this time
I'm fine, it's just some days
I can be anywhere and there you are again
 
Playing on my mind
Here, there, playing on my mind
You're there almost all the time
I swear, you're playing on my mind
 
It's not that the other girls
I tried to love can ever get near me
It's not that it makes them cry
'Cause you're all that they find
I can be anywhere and there you are again
 
Playing on my mind
Here, there, playing on my mind
You're there almost all the time
Because I dream of your touch
You're always on my mind
I just want you by my side
 
Playing on my...
(Playing on my mind)
Here, there, playing on my mind
You're there almost all the time
I swear, you're playing on my mind
 
Playing on my, my, my mind
Here, there, playing on my mind
You're there almost all the time
I swear, you're playing on my mind
 
Playing on my mind
Here, there, playing on my mind
You're there almost all the time
Playing, playing
Yeah, you're playing in my heart
Playing on my mind
