Lyrics – Dark Dream Midnight

Dark Dream Midnight

I am blue healing water, rain
I am forward moving river, I am sky on cloudless day
I am ocean large mysterious, I am eyes searching
I am calm and endless blue

Have you heard the words I’m saying
have you listened to your heart
Know that within the stillness
Nothing can pull us apart
It is love I’m conveying oh mother of light
When you fear that there is nothing
I am the only thing in sight.

I am red passion flowing
I am anger justified
I am fires of creation
I am roses still outside
I am love always going, I am red wine
Dancing woman fiery song of lust
I am dark dream midnight

All the cries that you have sent me
All the tears that you have shed
I will gather all together
Turn to gold what once was lead
Heavy burden on your shoulder
Too many thoughts inside your head
All will be as light as feathers
Bring to life what once was dead

I am blue healing water, rain
I am forward moving river, I am sky on cloudless day
I am ocean large mysterious, I am eyes searching
I am calm and endless blue

I am red passion flowing
I am anger justified
I am fires of creation
I am roses still outside
I am love always going, I am red wine
Dancing woman fiery song of lust
I am dark dream midnight

Don’t need No One

He doesn’t love me anyway
And I am thankful for that
All these things I’ve placed around me
Could not hold me back

But How I long for him to hold me
As I lay sleeping by his side
All he ever really gave me
Were my dreams at night

Please tell me you don’t want me
I will thank you for that
All these restraints I’ve placed around me
Could not hold me back

And all those things I never told you
Way back when I could have
All those dreams I had about you
They keep coming back

I don’t want see you at night
I don’t want hear your voice
I don’t want see you at all
I don’t want to have a choice
I’m just gonna hide here alone
I’m just gonna talk to myself
Cause I don’t need no one.

I have felt true love
It don’t creep around like this
Doesn’t depend on complex things
Doesn’t even need a kiss

But my body is longing
And my mind feels alone
Loneliness can be confusing
But I don’t need no one

Chorus

Journeys With You

You are not so far away
It just seems like that today
All the things I want to say
Seem like wasted breath…

All my thoughts are there with you
Wish that I could be there too
We will see each other very soon
Biding our time…

So I will work each day and then
Go straight back to bed again
Spend my winter weeping and
Dreaming of you…

I have something to confess
Every night before I lay down to rest
I feel so grateful for this test
And all my journeys with you…

You are not so far away
It just seems like that today
All the things I want to say
Seem like wasted breath…

Jubilee

I heard you’re leaving at the end of summer
Sure will miss you, you’ll be hard to replace
But we’re all learning not to get used to anybody
All seem to leave here without a trace

Well this tired old building is only 7 years old
Seen so many faces, can’t keep track anymore
Only crazy Mary has stayed
To keep this place together everyday.

Been here so long, I can’t leave
Thought about it but it’s not up to me
Like to see things growing like they did with you
Hard to keep things going always with someone new

Well this tired old building is only 7 years old
Seen so many faces, can’t keep track anymore
Only crazy Mary has stayed
To keep this place together everyday.

We watch the seasons here come and go
While staring out of the back window
Inside these walls that once the wind blew down
We’re still picking them up off of the ground

Well this tired old building is only 7 years old
Seen so many faces, can’t keep track anymore
Only crazy Mary has stayed
To keep this place together everyday.
Only crazy Mary has stayed
To keep this place together everyday.

House Of Love

Where can this go when we are both undecided
Running around in the dark we can’t hide it
So far to go but we are standing beside it
The house of love

Sometimes I feel like we are both here together
Happy to be but then a change in the weather
Let’s get inside where we both can feel better
In this house of love

I guess things aren’t nearly as bad as they seem to be
I’m just thinking too much and you always seem to be working
Let’s try to work things out before we let it fall
I just get so scared we’re going to lose it all

I want to stay with you here in the country
Weeding the garden and drinking our tea
Waking each morning with you looking at me
In this house of love

I feel us both hiding here in each other
Sense of security and a good cover
Can we break free without the need to suffer
In this house of love?

I guess things aren’t nearly as bad as they seem to be
I’m just thinking too much and you always seem to be working
Let’s try to work things out before we let it fall
I just get so scared we’re going to lose it all

Family Names

Walking amongst those graves I stumbled upon yours
Your brother being laid to rest just next door
All those family names and all those people who
I bear resemblance to.

At the edge of that field there’s a break in the trees
Where you can hop onto the train tracks
Follow them where they lead
all along the coast and out of black cape
You can go a long way

Land call us home
Let’s gather round
Let’s tell the stories that remind us
of where we’re all from
Let’s sing the songs that our parents sang
Bring us all together
With those family names

Harry said he didn’t know this place anymore
Changed the lay of the land, cut into the shore
The water’s not even fit for swimming these days
From the paper mill on the bay

There’s a sold sign in the yard of Aunt Doris’ house
I guess at her age it’s too much by herself
Still the rhubarb grows behind the garage
And she’s busy cooking for us all

Chorus

As of old, every new generation has to leave this place
Head out into the world to find work that’ll pay
We’re all drawn back here inevitably
By the land and the sea

Chorus

Couldn’t wake up

I turn around and see myself
Sleeping so deeply in rest
I will follow the stars
And follow them back to my breath

Like the poet I see the sleepers
Tucked in their beds fast asleep
Can I pass through these walls to tomorrow
And can I somehow reach you

You caught the fear late at night
You couldn’t hear my surprise
You couldn’t wake up that night
You couldn’t wake up that night
You couldn’t wake up

I went to see his body lowered
I followed my family there
Before each tear could reach the ground
They turned to ice in the air

Chorus

I wander all night in my visions
I see you walk by, I call out
Each word I use to try and reach you
Takes all of my effort somehow

Chorus

Until One of Us Goes

I was told we could keep going
Until we lost all track of time
Now I feel like we are slowing down
And I can’t get you off my mind

If you knew all of my dreams
You wouldn’t have to ask
What all of my words could mean
Right down to the very last

There is no planning
Though I see there’s hope
And there ain’t no matter babe
Until one of us has to go

Can’t pretend forgiveness
No, I can’t pretend at all
I just hold it all inside me
Until I’m just about to explode

I don’t expect you always
To hang on to the rope
There must be a better way
Than to drag someone down the road

Chorus

I was blinded by my wanting
To always be secure
We both know that always
Is never the right word

Chorus

That Line Between Us

Guess I shouldn’t have told you all those things that I said
Didn’t make sense at the time to keep it hid
Now as I’m heading out of town
Feel like I couldn’t walk back or turn around

There is only one thing that I would regret
If I were to wake up tomorrow and find myself dead
That I didn’t hold out my hand
I didn’t give away all the love that I had

I don’t want to cross that line between us
Don’t want to ruin what little we had
But if I can’t talk to you about it
What is it that we really had

Time wasted worrying about it
Seems like a daydream I can not wake up from
Though a part of me may doubt it
Think I can love you without asking for some

Of all those colours I have shown you
All the truest I have held within
With all those women who surround you
I can see the trouble that you’re in

Chorus

February Song

I think it’s fair that you share your day
With the hope that spring will come early
Come early and winter will fade
Usher in the sun and the rain

Guess I can’t say that I still miss you
When the feelings are so far and so few
And the ground where you stood, the ground where you were
Has all but grown over

So don’t ask me why
It’s taken me this long to cry
‘Cause I don’t know, I don’t know why…

The one thing I wanted was for you to know
That you could stop fighting with your shadow
It followed you around and you were afraid
To see that the darkness was yours to embrace

Whether your god was a friend or not
And whether you found him or you were still lost
I think your heart was just like the moon
It only came out when I couldn’t see you.

Chorus

Union News

Wouldn’t have been so bad if she had known
It would be the last day before you traveled home

She found out Tuesday while reading the union news
A few weeks too late to say goodbye to you

Maybe this world is just spinning too fast
Can’t see around the corner can’t hold on to the past
Painting of Jesus and the girl down the hall
And all the other faces that hang onto your wall

Fly away…

Now Wednesday morning I got you on my mind
This will be the first year I haven’t spent January crying.
Well, the world’s turned white and the wind is screaming.
Got to go to work, got to find some meaning…

Chorus

Time to sit alone and think of you
Quiet conversation, simple tribute
To small town hotels with nothing much to do
Except just sit around and talk with you

Chorus

Packed My Bags

I packed my bags and as always
I forgot something important to me
But when you’re on the road you can’t go back
You just buy it new and settle for that

I met you there on that sunny afternoon
You had so few belongings with you
We went digging through time looking for clues and signs
They all brought us back here, such a strange design

I called out to you, called out to you, called out to you.

I carry with me all these flowers and stones
Can’t do a thing to rid me of those
Some things you feel and some things you know
I can’t do a thing for your tired old bones

Chorus

Won’t you just look at me once more?
I know you’re tired, can’t remember what we were
We’ll go digging through time looking for clues and signs
To bring you back here one more time…

Chorus

Shadow into Light

I saw you pass from shadow into light
As the snow was falling
From behind the car into the headlight
Everyone I saw was stalling

From where I sit I have a very good view
Of all the people passing by
Everyone somehow reminds me of you
And all of those times

Maybe this is the end of the very dark hours
Maybe this is the end of the very great towers

I spend all these quiet hours by myself
And in myself am growing strong
All these songs that just collect on the shelf
While the hours grow long

Maybe this is the end of the very dark hours
Maybe this is the end of the very great tower
It’s all falling down around me now
Gonna rebuild again somehow
It’s all falling down around me now
Gonna rebuild again somehow
Again somehow…

I saw the starlight coming through the oaks
While all around we were laughing
Walked a mile to get there through the snow
To celebrate the seasons passing

I saw you pass from shadow into light
As the snow was falling
From behind the car into the headlight
Everyone I saw was stalling

Time Stands Still

Time stands still for you
Amid all those stairs
You waltz gracefully through
You are your best friend again and again

Try not to ask those questions again
The answers will come
When you are ready for them
There’s no need to ask when you’re doing the task

Behind that dark veil
I can see your eyes
And I can hear your voice
Inside my head

It flows to me onto the page
When I am sitting still
After the furious rage
The monster falls asleep and I fall back in to me
