Track Name: Sixes and sevens
She dances like no one is looking
And her feet pitter-patter down the lane
And she holds up her dress to keep it from scuffing
She's dancing barefoot in the rain
She doesn't mind
She doesn't mind
She doesn't mind
She doesn't mind

And she holds up her head and looks to the heavens
And the rain bounces softly on her skin
And the rain drops fall in sixes ans sevens
And she's cupping her hands to catch the rain
She doesn't mind
She doesn't mind
She doesn't mind
She doesn't mind

No, no, no, no.
No, no, no, no.

I don't think she knows I am looking
Regardless my heart is full of lies
Does she know that my heart is here for the taking
But I am just a coward hiding behind these eyes
I don't mind
No, I don't mind
No, I don't mind
No, I don't mind

No, no, no, no.
No, no, no, no.

She doesn't mind
She doesn't mind
She doesn't mind
She doesn't mind
Track Name: Sway me down
Sway me down to the river's bank again
Take all the sunlight and focus it through a lense
Burn my chest through to my heart
Burn my chest through to my heart
Purify this black ink blot
With a fire burning true, burning clean, burning white hot

Tall orders asking for my life and time
Red or blue corner pick your side man, I'll pick mine
Burn my chest through to my heart
Burn my chest through to my heart
Purify this black ink blot
With a fire burning true, burning clean, burning white hot

And the criminal damage that you wrought on your walk of fame
Could have bleed into something greater had you used a different name
Burn my chest through to my heart
Burn my chest through to my heart
Purify this black ink blot
With a fire burning true, burning clean, burning white hot

Sway me down to the river's bank again
Track Name: Beautiful You (live)
(Quick re-tune. This one is one the album
It's water...
It's missed!)

Doesn't everyone feel this way?
Just when I caught a glimpse again
Just like God it can't be proven
Just like love it was so moving...moving

If I could be so bold
Behind your eyes I see pure gold
And it doesn't matter if I feel broken
Just like my heart got shot from a cannon

Beautiful you
Shining true
Beautiful you

If I could be so bold
Behind your eyes I see pure gold
And it doesn't matter if I feel broken
Just like my heart got shot from a cannon

This feeling shan't evade me
It's a dark field, been washed through
It's beautiful, so beautiful
Beautiful you
Track Name: Raid Out
Raid out your heart to banish the grimace
With the pearl of hope you sowed within
Come and set your horizon without limits
And trade your frown for a grin

I'll teach you the secrets the way I know them
Blood rich like wine on your tongue
And the mystery of the body broken and eaten
A hope that thousands have sung

Just like blood, just like blood from a stone
Just like blood, just like blood from a stone

It's the impossible that I'm grasping
The truth that's a loss to your mind
And the realism of your dreams crashing
Is minuscule you'll find

Burnished on the very existence
Of all who partake and leave these stones
Born out in their hopes persistence
Rushing through very blood and bones
Track Name: High Regard
You know what I think of you girl?
I’d cut off my ear for you.
But then as well as tears
There would be blood on my pillow too.

You know what I think of you girl?
I swear Aphrodite never looked as good as you
She’s so jealous, She’s so jealous,
Jealous of guess who? She’s jealous of you

I’m reminded of you
In that sunny court yard
I’m reminded of you
Girl don’t you know I hold you in high regard

So where does that leave us girl?
It leaves me alone
with the Holy SPirit and memories of you
I’m sat here reading my Bible and I’m thinking of guess who?
Girl I am thinking of you

I’m reminded of you
In that sunny court yard
I’m reminded of you
Girl don’t you know I hold you in high regard

You’re Jezebel baby
You’re hurtful girl
Famine and pestilence they don’t got nothing on you
they don’t got nothing on you

God loves you baby
That much is true
But I have had enough, I have had enough
I have had my fill of you

I’m reminded of you
In that sunny court yard
I’m reminded of you
Girl don’t you know I hold you in high regard
Track Name: Meantime (live)
Meantime is a place so deep
Like the ocean bottom never reached
I bought some tickets away from all reason
well the journey promised to be pleasing

Yeah, we're walking on water
We decided to walk taller

Tickets in my hand I was expectant
Till the train pulled up toward the station
It would seem the ticket is valued for just one
But don't you worry my love I'll smuggle you on

Yeah, we're walking on water
We decided to walk taller

There will be times my love, yeah there'll be such times
When you have to carry me too
That's the beauty of this thing called love
It's together that we'll make it through

Yeah, we're walking on water
We decided to walk taller

Out of the window triangular fields go by
Climb out of the case my love, it's be just fine
We're nearly at the place called meantime
In the meantime love, you'll be mine

Yeah, we're walking on water
We decided to walk taller
