Track Name: Long Tom
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.
Track Name: Summer Rails
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...
Track Name: The Sound of Heaven
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
Track Name: Diamond Girls
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.
