Well it’s a long way down Before you hit the ground But maybe time will tell you the fall was worth it Worth it all And it’s a one way track If you keep looking back And never stop to check if I’m standing right there With you Hide yourself from all that heartache Listen to me there’s another way Now if you’re thinking love is a mistake Let it bend before it breaks And it’s a long road home But you are not alone Come with me I know the fall is worth it all I know it’s worth it all Hide yourself from all that heartache Listen to me there’s another way Now if you’re thinking love is a mistake Let it bend before it breaks You’ve got a book of rules To stop me from breaking through You’ve got a lock upon your soul Now I’ll take you to the edge If you’ll just take my hand And join me in the fall Hide yourself from all that heartache Listen to me there’s another way Now if you’re thinking love is a mistake Let it bend before it breaks Let it bend before it breaks

Sinking, putting both feet forward Feel you barely brush my skin Hear it coming through the floorboards Waiting, we’ve barely jumped in I lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own The nightbirds won’t leave me alone in a quieter scene Pacing, take it slow, I promised Wonder, are we stalled instead? Time now for that departing kiss Hating that I’m so stuck inside my head I lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own The nightbirds won’t leave me alone in a quieter scene Give me a knife to cut the tension Give me a lost signal Give me a reason to continue and a hand that I can hold Give me a month to grow accustomed Give me a heartfelt cue Give me a sign that it’s alright for me A sign that it’s alright for me A sign that it’s alright for me to give everything to you I lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own The nightbirds won’t leave me alone Lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own But I know I’m always alone in a quieter scene

I paved this road with good intent I paved this road with good intent My back is broken and my body’s spent But I paved this road, I paved this road with good intent Now these flames do burn, these flames do burn My heart is blistered cause I never learned And my hands are mangled from the tricks I’ve turned These flames do burn, oh yes, these flames do burn My work is long and my mouth is dry My eyes too weak to see that sky I meant no harm, baby, when I lied My work is long, my work is long and my mouth is dry And the path is hidden on this blacktop road My feet leave no mark of my wanderin’ soul And I’ll take this tunnel over that light Cause that sun it blinds me Oh that sun is much too bright And I hear that call, yes, I hear that call I got no fight left in me, I’ve lost it all Hand over fist, baby, I will crawl Cause I hear that call, oh yes, I hear that call And the path is hidden on this blacktop road My feet leave no mark of my wanderin’ soul And I’ll take this tunnel over that light Cause that sun it blinds me Oh that sun is much too bright I won’t look back when the world dies I’ll walk this blacktop with my head held high Now I know it burns, but at least I tried I won’t look back, I won’t look back when this world dies Cause I paved this road with good intent I paved this road with good intent Now my back is broken and my body’s spent I paved this road, I paved this road with good intent

The North becomes Atlantis And the South is flyin’ trees And the West is hidin’ miners And the East can barely breathe The peacekeepers they can rally But they can’t load up enough fire And the water’s turnin’ orange While the rivers become wider The roof is flyin’ over And the traffic is a show All along the lake Even the birds are forced to row And the houses turn to birthday cakes So many candles in the wind While the princes run for cover And the bloomers they learn to swim Now the water’s rising But the sky won’t drink Yeah the water’s rising Some can take all the downpour And waterlog all their dreams Pull some bait out of the freezer And wade up right through to the knees Toss a line into the basement On a boat from the front door Then hook a bass That’s big enough to have a thirteenth floor Now the water’s rising But the sky won’t drink Yeah the water’s rising

I can be your Superman Anything you want I can build it with my hands I’ll show you worlds that you ain’t never seen I’ll write you a story and give it life on the screen I can promise you a smile When you feel down we can dance here for awhile I’ll buy you every diamond that I can But I’ll never be anything more than I am No I can’t be your Jesus tonight I can’t be your Jesus tonight I got my share of good words But I sure ain’t no Lord And I can’t be your Jesus tonight I’ll give you wonder and give you light But Revelations are a little out of sight I’ll cook you dinner if that’s your wish But I can’t make a feast out of just two fish No I can’t be your Jesus tonight I can’t be your Jesus tonight I got my share of good words But I sure ain’t no Lord And I can’t be your Jesus tonight I know I can’t compare to the man in your soul I know without him you just won’t feel whole But I’ll be waitin’ on down the line If you’re ever feelin’ less divine Said I got my share of good words But I sure ain’t no Lord And I can’t be your Jesus tonight
