Lovers eyes

Love was kind, for a time
Now just aches and it makes me blind

This mirror holds my eyes too bright
I can’t see the others in my life

Were we too young? And heads too strong?
To bear the weight of these lover’s eyes.
‘Cause I feel numb, beneath your tongue
Neath the curse of these lover’s eyes.

But do not ask the price I pay,
I must live with my quiet rage,
Tame the ghosts in my head,
That run wild and wish me dead.
Should you shake my ash to the wind
Lord, forget all of my sins
Oh, let me die where I lie
Neath the curse of my lover’s eyes.

There’s no drink nor drug I tried
To rid the curse of these lover’s eyes
And I feel numb, beneath your tongue
Your strength just makes me feel less strong

But do not ask the price I pay,
I must live with my quiet rage,
Tame the ghosts in my head,
That run wild and wish me dead.
Should you shake my ash to the wind
Lord, forget all of my sins
Oh, let me die where I lie
Neath the curse of my lover’s eyes.

And I’ll walk slow, I’ll walk slow
Take my hand, help me on my way.
And I’ll walk slow, I’ll walk slow
Take my hand, I’ll be on my way.

Ghosts that we knew

You saw my pain, washed out in the rain

Broken glass, saw the blood run from my veins

But you saw no fault, no cracks in my heart

And you kneel beside my hope torn apart

 

But the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view

And we’ll live a long life

 

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light

Cause oh that gave me such a fright

But I will hold as long as you like

Just promise me we’ll be alright

 

So lead me back

Turn south from that place

And close my eyes to my recent disgrace

Cause you know my call

We’ll share my all

Now children come and they will hear me roar

 

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light

Cause oh that gave me such a fright

But I will hold on as long as you like

Just promise me we’ll be alright

 

But hold me still bury my heart on the cold

And hold me still bury my heart on the cold

 

So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light

Cause oh that gave me such a fright

But I will hold on with all my might

Just promise me we’ll be alright

 

Ghosts that we knew will flicker from view

And we’ll live a long life
