Lyrics

old north wind, why do you blow so cold? you took me pure and pretty, my story's left untold. grasses grow 'round names you'll never know...you could meet them now, if you stop for a spell. rows and rows, rows and rows of sleeping souls are arranged here. hold your own: it's too late to place the blame, 'cause i sleep here, just the same. settle down and rest, now, it's gonna be a while. close my door against the wind, but still it whistles wild. if you're looking, you will see: they're pining for your company. and i wish that i could wrap myself around you in the ground. rows and rows, rows and rows of sleeping souls are contained here. and you know: THE MOST RESTLESS SOULS ARE THE ONES WHO WERE TOO YOUNG TO GO. and i wish that i could wrap myself around you in the ground.

Lyrics

who's that sleeping under the porch? have you seen him before? you don't mind him sleeping out there, but when he comes near the door, you say: "GO AWAY! GO AWAY YOU UGLY STRAY! GO AWAY! GO AWAY YOU UGLY STRAY!" and he runs away, to a quiet place, where no-one's above you. i said, "leave him alone, everybody needs a home--and WHERE WOULD YOU BE IF NOBODY LOVED YOU?" sleeping in backyards, passing time by the river. driving in strange cars, stay awake 'til you can see the lines. wake up. the dream is fading....are you sure? that weren't no dream. objects in the mirror are farther than they may seem. (go away you ugly stray...) and he walks away to make our final arrangements on the payphone. blowing this old town, got a one-way ticket down, WITH NO GROUND BELOW AND NO SKY ABOVE YOU.

Lyrics

hey, look at you my dear: from out here, things look clear. you turned around to talk to someone, and found nobody there. so you walk out alone, and you walk home alone. open the door a crack. never to go back. boxes falling to the floor I thought I'd thrown out long before. but I won't be afraid. no, I won't be afraid. how could you see a different moon? there's only one to find. strawberries will come in june, and maybe you'll be fine. "will try, I will try, I will."

Lyrics

he missed the boat to anchorage. so you spent the night floating through icebergs alone. he took away things she recognized. led her away from a beautiful home. OH, YOU SHOULD HAVE RUN, YOU SHOULD HAVE USED YOUR GUN WHEN YOU SAW HIM COME. and when you fly so high, you can't see any signs: where's your peace of mind. he's got the TV up so high, he forgets to remind you to breathe. is nothing worse than silence? i wear your ring to keep me warm. a calm inside the storm. now nothing's worse than silence.

Lyrics

the moon is as bright as the soft city lights all rolled up in one. the secret's out. there's no getting away from the things you've done. the hiss of the cars and the lights from the bars will not fade away. the farther out you get, the less you have to say. oh, it's a faded dream. it's gone when you awake: the path you might have taken. no: it's a jaded dream. you can't find the piece you lost. watch another sunset fall. stand on a bridge, watching the flash of a passing train. someone left their sleeping bag, and it's getting wet in the rain. the moon is as bright as the soft city lights all rolled up in one. the verdit's out: the jury's hung.
