THE BEAUTIFUL WILD

The Fighter

Oh my hero tried
But I fell too many times
Seeing blue and green when I was supposed to see white

All your ships in magazines
seem like make believe to me
You won’t find me in the line
Trying to get somewhere to be

We were carrying on
Oh, we used to be so strong
Never knew we were living in the beautiful wild

In the beautiful wild, La de da
In the beautiful wild, La de da …

Oh my hero tried
But I fought too many times
Seeing you in the scenes
Of an old time movie

Hold me close into the night
While we stay up one last time
Never knew we were living in the beautiful wild

In the beautiful wild, la de da…

A home on the farm
we haven’t given up so far
A home on the farm
We haven’t given up so far

In the beautiful wild…
in the beautiful, beautiful wild
La de da….
la de da….

I’ve Got Your Fire

Beautiful lady, she had her baby
She walked ten miles.
Through the snow with the wind blowing cold
she said, gotta get away for a while
through the summer til’ the end of October
Heaven knows how she tried
Oh Angel, she cried Gabriel, can you keep me in line?
Oh, hear em sing.

I’ve got your fire, I’ve got your fire
I’ve got you fired up.

Ooh love, Take what your heart can take
Ooh love, take what your heart can’t take

ooh ooh

Oh Sadie, she had her mind made up fast.
Singing Let it Be, she took her chance at another pass
Running through the streets, she was the wild beauty queen
Oh Angel, she cried Gabriel, can you keep me in line?
Oh hear em sing

I’ve got your fire, I’ve got your fire,
I’ve got you fired up.

I Want You Back

All the winter you’ve been saying sorry for the cold
But you make it better baby, we’re not too far now from home.
You know I would love you better if I didn’t go.
You know I would love you better if I did not need to go.

You know I would, you know I would, you know I would
Keep you for my own

All the winter we’ve been praying keeping our hearts going.
But you make it better baby we’re not too far now from home.
You know I would love you better if I didn’t go
You know I would love you better if I did not need to go

You know I would, You know I would, You know I would
Keep you for my own (repeat)

I want you back (repeat)
I believe in love (repeat)

Hollywood

Driving your car down Hollywood Boulevard
Wishing we were still swimming far from the stars
Let the wild things grow tired
Fall from the trees
In the city keep everything looking green

I’d still be dreaming of you (repeat)

Staying up late, keeping our days far from too long
Sleeping with the TV on, know it’s just for fun
Black and white scenes from old movies
On silver screen
Hollywood, California
Sun chasing dream

I’d still be dreaming of you (repeat)

Driving your car down Hollywood Boulevard
Wishing we were still swimming far from the stars

Gone Baby Gone

My mother told me be careful of your heart
You’re gonna be free, and you’re never gonna stop
My mother told me be the leader of your heart
You’re gonna be free and you’re never gonna stop

White Dove

Hello, white dove
He brings me letters from now on when he comes
Flying so he catches words and sings the verse as he goes

Ooh oooh

Hello, my dear
It’s not too late to get you fast out of here
Stay low, no one will catch you
Keep it close as you go

Ooh ooh

So long my love, so long my love

Taking it back, taking it back
Taking my heart back to where he found out…

(take it back my love baby, back my love)

One More Night

My feelings fled like angel wings
You carried me through the worst storm they’d ever seen
I heard the old hearts breaking just like glass
From crystal hanging off the family tree

Just one more night she screamed into the wind
Storm stay me, and then we’ll let it be
Just one more night she cried into the moon
Just listen to my heart and let it be

Oh come into our house, oh come into our house
Oh come into our house and let it be (repeat)

Oh Angel call on me (repeat)

Aida

Aida find me
I’m begging you please
To find a deeper room
where you and I we will be

Aida you’re my man
The only one I understand
Counting pennies, counting sheep
We’re always dreaming up so big

I can be sure
The biggest heart is yours
No matter what they say
My baby finds a way

Always (repeat)

Michael

Beautiful boy, sisters and mother and father adore
Wishing you had the day
To sit by the fire and run to the shore
Now there shines a light
It’s bigger and brighter than ever before
He takes up the sky
Now there is beauty and love wild for miles

Michael, Michael
We do sing

Michael, Michael
We do sing

Fall as you may
Oh we get carried away
As long as we stay
together, your hopeful hearts will be okay

Michael, Michael
We do sing
Michael, Michael
We do sing

There goes a bird, wings full of memories
It’s likeness unheard, there goes baby over the sea
Flying through the gold rush, hair like the leaves
It’s likeness unheard, there goes baby over the sea
There goes baby over sea

Michael, Michael
We do sing
Michael, Michael
We do sing
Hallelujah (repeat)

In The Belly of A Dragon

I was a child I was born in the lion’s mouth
In the belly of a dragon’s how I found out
I look for kisses up in the sky
Such a long way, that’s what they’ll say

Ooh, ooh, be the one, be the one
Ooh ooh

Ooh, ooh, be the one, be the one
Ooh ooh

What’s left behind, keep what’s yours, take what’s mine
I’ve been waiting for the day, just the chance to get away
I look for wishes up in the sky
Such a long, that’s what they’ll say

Ooh, ooh be the one, be the one
Ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh be the one, be the one,
Ooh, ooh

Over the sun, he’s taking another one
Another one

I was a child, I was born in the lions mouth
In the belly of a dragon’s how I found out.



HONEYMOON PUNCH

OH MY HEART

You look like a movie star from this angle
Oh tell me I’ve got my bangles on
I can dance and dance while the band plays on
Oh you took me by surprise
White coat in arms and sweet lullabies

Chorus:
Oh my heart
Oh my heart

We made a bed of grass and layed there for a while

White coat in arms and sweet lullabies

You buy me
You buy me your love x2

“c’mon everybody!”

How I met you

Baby how I met you how was I supposed to know
You headed for the highway headed for the show
Baby how I met you how was I supposed to know

Tell me bout the stars
Tell me bout the dose
Hangin in the garden lookin at the rose
Baby how I met you how was I supposed to know

I’ll be on time for you

Baby how I met you how was I supposed to know
You headed for the ticket, headed for the show

Dan- wooh you are

PARADISE MOUNTAIN

Chorus: Are you throwing your dreams away?
Storm is coming get out of the way
We’ll drink blovad in the kitchen by the fire
Waiting on all our capped desires

I would walk deep into the darkest woods
You can find me I’m dreaming here
And we would share
The only water anywhere
Its half for us and half for the deer

My friend I’m running to you with no end
As the bankers try to keep me up at night
And oh how I miss the tremelo sound of your voice
And the audience when they rejoice

Chorus
Oh in my sleep I’m counting sheep
I’m picturing us oh the mountain sky
When we’re old
I’ll know when we were young we told
Maybe I love you, maybe next time

When we’re old I’ll know when we were young we told
Maybe I love you, maybe next time
Maybe I love you, maybe next time.

ALL YEAR

I know where the wind blows on the east coast
Think I see our trees dancing by our window
Who are we in dreams of mine?
You know you’re the one for me,
I think about you all the time

I know where the ocean’s rollin back home
Think I see our friends dancing round the kitchen back door
Who are we in dreams of mine?
You know you’re the one for me
I think about you all the time
I think about you all year

All the while, all the while love?Coming from the ocean off the coast of New York
While I’m layin here by the window of a cheap motel
Feeling all alone
But I know that we’ve got dreams back home

Baby how I met you
My baby’s been away
Dancing in the woods you know you look so good
Oh I wanna see ya
Oh I wanna keep ya
Darlin you’re my hunny don’t stray

Who are, who are we in dreams of mine?
You know you’re the one for me
I think about you all the time

Al the while, all the while love
Coming from the ocean off the coast of new york
While I’m layin here by the window of a cheap motel
Feeling all alone
But I know that we’ve got dreams back home

Who are, who are we in dreams of mine
You know, you’re the one for me
I think about you all the time

PARLIAMENT OF OWLS

There was a parliament of owls
In the dark where the night things prowl
We were warm inside keeping our voices down
We talked late into the night
Got our feathers ruffled and into a fight
Nothing got decided and we broke into the morning light

Chorus:
If you want to run away, run away
From the shadows and corners of your heart
And if you want the night alone to yourself
Turn a light on and keep out of the dark

Things from home I can’t find in the city
My father is tall my mother is pretty
And I want you the same as I did back then

The grass is wet and the moon is high
A murder of crows chasing the field mice round

Chorus

And if you want to shy away, shy away
From the shadows and corners of your heart
And if you want the night alone to yourself
Turn the light on and keep out of the dark

Chorus

HEART OF STICKS

Oh tree you’re taller than me
And greener on the other side
Oh clouds are you looking at me now
Are you looking down at us on our sides

Oh air you’re sweeter than me
I can feel you now
Old moon do you have a spare room for my love I’m sending out
Please take care of the heart you’re taking there

(chicka-chikah)

nobody’s got your heart on their sleeve like we do
you were getting old, the sun was setting down on our sides
seems like I was leaving you
those final weeks when I moved out with photographs,
dishes and sheets and that’s when I said,
it’s time for moving on
your heart was not so strong
I took you walking where I memorized your steps and colors
Will they last me for a lifetime?
You’ll never leave my mind
You’ll never leave my mind

There are places in the land where we let go of you
Called the ocean and the sand
Best place you’d been to
I made you a heart of sticks and set up your favorite view
Seagulls over island sands and herons on the dunes

You’re running in my heart aren’t you
You’re running in my heart aren’t you

Woooh oooh

WALK AWAY

I don’t miss you
Til I can’t kiss you
Oh Why, oh why

Love so tender
Please stay forever mine
Oh why

You had it all
You got lost I the game
You got what you asked for
You got lost in the way we played

Chorus:
Don’t walk away, walk away, walk away, don’t walk away, walk away, walk away, walk away, don’t walk away, don’t.

I don’t need you
Til I can’t see
Can i
oh why

Love’s the mender
Please stay together mine
Mine

You had it all
You got lost in the game
You got what you asked for
You got lost in the way we say

Chorus

I could have been nice
But my heart said go and think twice
If you’ve got a hole in your heart
Everybody’s got one and everybody’s got to stop

Quiet chorus

Chorus

Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah?Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

(Repeat)

(you know I love you girl
I just wanna be
Don’t make me so sad)

STARS AND WAVES

You saw me go
You saw me go
I tried my love high and low
While the stars
Were running out
Showed me the doubt
You could take me higher than these waves
Waves
I tired my love to find the pace

You saw me go
You saw mw go
I tried my love to take it slow
And while the stars
They tuckered out
Showed me about
Washing me away away
Away away
Away away
Away away
All day

All day
I tried to my love to fine the pace
And while the stars
They tempered out
Showed me about

Washing me away away away
Away away
Away away
Away away
All day

All day

Stars to waves
Stars to waves all day

(band plays)

** secret message from Isabel



ECHOES

Heartbreaker

I see you’ve changed
the sun hits your face the most flattering way
If I had a rhyme for every time I thought you could be mine

The evening was getting late and I was passing my devils out
Don’t be afraid, you’re not alone, i’m here for you now

My heart stood up and said find the courage if you would.
You should know better, you were such a smart kid
Long may you live my love if you don’t know my secret
I’m a heartbreaker now. go out and find the woman that you should.

the woman that you should.

You’ll Go Far

I’ll be gone for the setting of the sun
You’ll be too standing on the shore
as the blue turns to me
And says you’ll, you’ll go far we know
and says you’ll, you’ll go far we know

I see it so clearly now
why do you still follow it?
I’ve got all these questions, how.
and why do you still follow it?
when it doesn’t lead us the way
It doesn’t lead us the way home.

Home, home, home……
home, home, home…….

Where Are You Now

I couldn’t obey, you fell back a ways
my heart was on fire
Windows may break but on this very day
I hope you’re inspired

As long as I’ve got you

I couldn’t stay
You went on your way, across the ocean
As it is blue my heart longs for you
and for the golden days

As long as I’ve got you

And for a while, i held it up for you
go to the sky, love

Happy morning where are you now
I found a light and I went and put it down
I’ll be alright, don’t stay up too late, counting the stars wondering where you are
You’ll be okay, just show em’ your heart

I wish I could stay
I wish I could stay
I wish I could stay
I wish I..

Blue Mountains

From the mountains I heard you call
so i went running to collect them all
the gifts you showed me, all your best parts
when I got there all I saw was..

Blue Mountains for the heart of me
and a highway where you must be driving since you last saw me
Over my heart, over these hills you’ll go
Over my heart, over these hills you’ll go

If you’re running for the hills why don’t you
Find a place for us to dance slow
By the light I’ll say I love you
we’ll be hanging there right under..

Blue Mountains for the heart of me
and a highway where you must be driving since you last saw me
Over my heart, over these hills you’ll go
Over my heart, over these hills you’ll go

Parachutes

The color blue was coming in through your window
but I stayed cooking in my little kitchen
we were talking about what was going through
of the voices we’d started listening to

So you were going to a party in St. John’s.
and we said we wouldn’t let our lives go on too long,
without having a little bit of fun to carry on.
A deal has been made, and i’ll take from it someday

I’m not pulling on this parachute
I’ll smile for you that day.
I’m not wasting my time as I lay down to rest
I want to smile and say look at me, oh look at me now.
Don’t want to signify an empty heart.
Don’t you know what you’ve been getting and what you’ve got
My friend and I we’ll go back to what we loved to laugh about

If i could fly I would carry you
and i don’t mind the most beautiful, most beautiful view
I’d carry you on my sleeve If i could fly like an airplane,
watching the seaglass underneath
In my heart, in my mind, there’s something to this dream of mine
I’m not so sure if I believe but i’ll bury that between the trees

In my life it’s okay I wouldn’t have it any other way
If my time relies on this I swear my god would say this smile was enough.

I Was Your Woman

If you took a year of all of my tears there’d be a river of pictures you caught
I’m a girl now but once I was your woman, Once I was your woman but now..

I see the sun
Knowing I’ve come undone
But you are, you are
you are, you are
You are, you are not the one

You waited for hours
to see the day
Said I took your power, but you gave it to me
I keep on trying to save us from here
But we’re not surviving after all the love we shared
the love we shared
love..

I heard your heart drop
I heard your heart drop
I heard your heart drop.

(I’ve Got) The Two Of You

Daddy, play us a song, on your old piano i’ll be humming along
In the country I hope you do find a hummingbird sitting nearby
Oh I sent one along, oh I sent one along

Mama, sorry that I’m not a doctor or some other kind
Who can buy you all you deserve. A sweet old house and a car that works.
A trip around this old world.
the world that you gave me, the world that you gave me.

I’ve got the two of you
I’ve got the two of you
I’ve got the two of you
I’ve got the two of you.

Sailing By Silver Ships

You were my bonnie forsaken
But I could tell that you were not mine
Something told me that your heart was already taken
And I didn’t spend the time

Well alas I saw you hide under the blanket
On a sunday afternoon
And by the evening time there was rain coming down
I went up and left the room

I looked into my book of lines you brought to me
You were staring back at me this time old bluebird
If I sail into the silver light to meet you
Would you take my hand and show me who you’re praying to?

Fireflies

I found an oyster in the sea
too closed up for it to peak
so i dove deep and I dove wide
and felt the ripple of the sweet tide

I swim in time with your next to mine
I close my eyes and I see what you dream.

Until you, until you, until you.

Fireflies, in the air tonight
We could be dancing in their moonlight
That I know you, and you know me
but they’re taking our hearts into their eternity.

but I can’t catch you lightning bug
I’m too afraid to get my heart stuck on that one.

Is it too much to say in feieds of stars
that we’re all lit up but it’s the last part.

Until you, until you, until you
are inspired
Until you, oh oh oh oh, until you, until you
are inspired
da da da da. da da da da.

Hawaii

Well Hunny I have wasted too many lines about it
but planted a beautiful garden about it in my backyard
Oh the colors of you are shining in and out of it
and bugs are crawling on top of it
for me and for you

It’s ten am, the grass feels thin between my toes,
and you watch me through the window

You……ooooh……oooohhh…….oooh………

The light shines in, you catch me in the morning glow that only you can get in.

Well, you…. ooh……oooohh….oooh…….oooohh…….oooh…..

Only Love Can Break Your Heart

Everybody Loves You

I’ll get away from you darling
I’ll get high hopes
My god’s been watching
says leave that man alone

everbody loves you
ya everybody loves you
everybody loves you
everybody loves you

oh oh ohhhh ohhh..
oh oh ohhhhhhhhhhh…

I once knew this man
I found him falling when I was falling from a plan
Do you keep your head high,
or keep your head low?
Do you keep your head high
or keep your head low?
keep your head high, keep you head high
keep your head high, keep your head high
cause everybody loves you.
