Long Tom 02:35
Long Tom says It's just like a poem It's just like a song But I could never sing along & don't you know My deepest fear Is not the years -- It's all the threads that disappear Yet there was day I stood by your side The stories crashed History shook. And there was day I stood by your side Empires crashed History shook. Long Tom says It's just like a poem It's just like a song But I could never sing along. But I could never sing along. But I could never sing along.

Summer Rails 03:18
Warm summer light The tricks of the light The sway the field And what could I do These ways into you Impossible, steel... We walked too long Quiet along The run of the rails Both of us knew -- The silence it grew As we found the trail Fading through leaves The pulse of the eve A shimmer of sky And left with the dusk We know that we must Return to the lie And this moment now Laid on the ground The sway the field And what could I do These ways into you Impossible, steel...

Nicene Creed You always knew your wines; Excuse yourself For the thousandth time. And brace your body For the hour you find We are all together. It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell Periodontal bliss. Now did you always freak? As you leant on in to another week? And what did you say? He only heard the creak Of your long together. It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell It's like the sound of heaven When it's heard from hell

You always said I couldn't see You were forest, I was trees (Isn't that a funny thing?) And then again I "thought too much" Something in my head "was wrong" (Isn't it a funny thing) You always said I couldn't know, You were water, I was stone (Isn't that a funny thing?) And now we're here, it comes to this I'm staring at my drink and laughing (Isn't it a funny thing?) It's still the same and yes I know, people change and people go. It's still the same and yes I know, people change and people go. It's still the same and yes I know, but.,.. Did you ever feel the loss? Did you feel the loss of time? Of the things we could have done? Of the things we could have done. Did you ever feel the loss? Did you feel the loss of time? Of the things we might have done? Of the things we might have done. Gonna leave you to your diamond girls, Gonna leave you to your diamond girls, Gonna leave you to your diamond girls.
