I was waiting for the sun
Then I walked on home alone
What I didn't know
Was he was waiting for you to fall

So I never made amends
For the sake of no one else
For the simple reason
That he was waiting for you to fall

It was not lost on me
It was not lost on me
Walkin' on down the road
Looking for a friend to handout
Somethin' might ease my soul

So I kept my spirits high
Entertaining passers-by
Wrapped in my confusion
While he was waiting for you to fall

It was not lost on me
It was not lost on me
Walkin' on down the road
Looking for a friend to handout
Somethin' might ease my soul

It was not lost on me
It was not lost on me
Walkin' on down the road
Walkin' on down the road
Walkin' on down the road
Walkin' on down the road

It's taken you so long
Where can you be?
I would of laid my life down for you
Nothing seems real
Nothing seems real
Now that you're gone

Have you seen the sister's blue-eyed curls of gold
Hell and no one there to be seen
The sunlight looks down
Stripped bare to the ground
Held by the leaves

Been crowded in the wings
Mostly I don't mind
Been crowded in the wings
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find

Two hundred yards in front of the man
He could never see his way to another day
This time meant the same
Cold, cold, cold
Cold once again

Been crowded in the wings
Mostly I don't mind
Been crowded in the wings
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find

You brought me to the mother of mountains
You brought me to
And no one reads to you at night
Then all your lies came to pass
Just something I said
Made you turn your life in

Been crowded in the wings
Mostly I don't mind
Been crowded in the wings
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find

Been crowded in the wings
Mostly I don't mind
Been crowded in the wings
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find
Then it's you I find

Been crowded in the wings
Been crowded in the wings
Been crowded in the wings
Been crowded in the wings

God of the rich man ain't the God for the poor
Autumn ending the state hospital's closed
Then wouldn't you know
Winos and office girls in the park
Wanted you alone to walk beside her
Wanted you alone to live beside her
It was mornin'
Better roads with light on them

Can your diamonds talk to you
Can you see them shine
Keep them hiding in your room
Can they guide you in your time
Can they guide you in your time

Windows were broken by your dear one's hands
Gates left swinging by your dear one's hands
An old book salesman asked if he could step in
The sidewalks you slept on held no rest
Gave away the money you saved in your trust
You're sorry now
Light hits you funny at the time

Can your diamonds talk to you
Can you see them shine
Keep them hiding in your room
Can they guide you in your time
Can they guide you in your time

The sidewalks you slept on
They're so broken, they're so broken down
I'll meet you there
I'll meet you there

Years before when the trees would start to bloom
You walked outside, wanted back in your room
What did you hope for
Turn the corner while you slept
God of the rich man ain't the God for the poor
Autumn ending the state hospital is closed
And wouldn't you know
Winos and office girls in the park

Can your diamonds talk to you
Can you see them shine
Keep them hiding in your room
Can they guide you in your time
Can they guide you in your time

Can your diamonds talk to you
Can you see them shine
Keep them hiding in your room
Can they guide you in your time
Can they guide you in your time


. . .



I'd hope to find you this morning
Talking to the trees
I could miss you
After what went down

If false love could lie by you
While I'm swinging low
I could steal downtown
Making some sweet time

Two Angels
One bad end
This lifetime's easy
Way back home there's a funeral

Think I'll take to the sidewalk
Knowing it's not real
I could steal downtown
Making some sweet time

Two Angels
One bad end
This lifetime's easy
Way back home there's a funeral

Two Angels
One bad end

Two Angels
One bad end
This lifetime's easy
Way back home there's a funeral

Two Angels
One bad end
This lifetime's easy
Way back home there's a funeral

Day is done, night is returning
Icy black, the muddy waters
I've got to know, won't you please tell me
Sinking like a stone, the icy waters

Each night when I go to bed I pray
Take me with you when you go
Each night when I go to bed I pray
Take me with you when you go
Each night when I go to bed I pray

Past the house, where first they brought you
Carried you to sleep, protected from harm
And when they're gone, soon be returning
The ones you lived by, they found a foothold

Each night when I go to bed I pray
Take me with you when you go
Each night when I go to bed I pray
Take me with you when you go
Each night when I go to bed I pray

Like the sweet, sweet breeze that brought you
Left by chance, broke down by your words
What did I know, to ask you to leave me
Evening will die upon my doorstep

Each night when I go to bed I pray
Take me with you when you go
Each night when I go to bed I pray
Take me with you when you go
Each night when I go to bed I pray
Take me with you when you go
Each night when I go to bed I pray
Take me with you when you go
Each night when I go to bed I pray

Sister cry, from what you needed
Bought yourself things you could not use
Could be some man will come along and claim you
Could be you'll wind up in another town

Sister cry, count the stars
As many in the sky that passed you by
Could be up ahead you'll be seeing changes
Somehow the changes made won't belong to you

Someone come along and carry you down
(And you called my name)
(I was so hungry then)
Someone come along and carry you down
(And could not see you)
Someone come along and carry you down
(And we don't talk at all)
(It's the hardest way)
Someone come along and carry you down

Sister cry, been mistreated
Doesn't mean someone won't let you in
Could be some man will come along and claim you
Could be you'll wind up in another town

There's devils knocking at your door
But I could lead them all astray
Just don't matter what the people say

Someone come along and carry you down
(And you called my name)
(I was so hungry then)
Someone come along and carry you down
(And could not see you)
Someone come along and carry you down
(And we don't talk at all)
(It's the hardest way)
Someone come along and carry you down

Sister cry, count the stars
As many in the sky that passed you by
Could be up ahead you'll be seeing changes
Somehow the changes made won't belong to you
Could be up ahead you'll be seeing changes
Somehow the changes made won't belong to you


. . .



You came and you gave without taking
The best was yet to come I know
For I was forsaken
And so I kept my fingers crossed
To win at any cost
The sound of water falling down

Knock me down
Pick me up
Set me in a row

Your words hung high in the rafters
And settled down like rain
Remain happy ever after

Knock me down
Pick me up
Set me in a row

Knock me down
Pick me up
Set me in a row

You packed up your bags and belongings
And crept out through the back
The sound of footprints on the ground

Your words hung high in the rafters
And settled down like rain
Remain happy ever after
Happy ever after

Come to Wichita
Won't be there in forty days
This an evil land
Brings a devil's cloud

Take a message
To abide in what you own
And there'll be no more
No more people singing

La la la
In one morning you will be mine
Where the fields are smiling
No more people singing la la la
In one morning you will be mine
Where the fields are smiling
Where the fields are smiling
Oooooo...

There by crook and fire
And the squatter's rights
Don't your cheek get sore
And your mouth get dry
Sevens on your sleeve
Haven't counted days
Then he slouches home
To your loved one's gate

La la la
In one morning you will be mine
Where the fields are smiling
No more people singing la la la
In one morning you will be mine
Where the fields are smiling
Where the fields are smiling
Oooooo...

With my pockets torn by a whirlwind
Man takes what it needs
Turns you inside out

Come to Wichita
Won't be there in forty days
This an evil land
Brings a devil's plow

La la la
In one morning you will be mine
Where the fields are smiling
No more people singing la la la
In one morning you will be mine
Where the fields are smiling
Where the fields are smiling
Oooooo...

Left his day job behind
Every fool dies trying to give his back
Kicked around on the bum
Like a child I scolded
For broken toys

Can you help me to find Nevada, California
The last thing I did
Was I tried to hold her

The stationmaster is gone
And I'm your lovesick cousin that never wins
First you twist
Then you turn
You're on life's icy mountain, dear passenger

Can you help me to find Nevada, California
Can you help me to find Nevada, California
The last thing I did
Was I tried to hold her

Nevada, California
Nevada, California

The stationmaster is gone
Behind the lies you wonder
There lies a jewel
Could it be something's wrong
The love that won't talk to you
But seldom wins (or seven?)

Can you help me to find Nevada, California
Can you help me to find Nevada, California
Nevada, California
The last thing I did
Is I tried to hold her

He's only six years old
That old killer died
Put him down in a great big hole
And I fill it up all the time
See the buildings rise up to the sky
Parking meters, traffic cops
You best watch your record son
They'll come and lock you up

I've been working all night
I go long into the day
Ain't got much money now
Got the time ahead
Got the time ahead to pay

Smoke and lightning
Dressed to kill
Don't talk to strangers
Girl take your pill
Forty years of sudden death
The acid rain is falling on my head
? race on the rise
Doctors working overtime
Too much of a good thing, not enough
Stepping stones, building blocks

I've been working all night
I go long into the day
Ain't got much money now
Got the time ahead
Got the time ahead to pay

I've been working all night
I go long into the day
Ain't got much money now
Got the time ahead to pay

I've been working all night
I go long into the day
Ain't got much money now
Got the time ahead
Got the time ahead
Got the time ahead to pay
