THE SEA WITHIN LYRICS

INSIDE OUT

The pills, the booze, the sugar, the news, we take it in
Every night it’s what we choose again and again

We’re bleeding from the inside out
We’re bleeding from the inside out

The politics of idiots, we let it go
The dumbing down of common things we used to know

We’re bleeding from the inside out
We’re bleeding from the inside out

America, America, America
We’re bleeding from the inside out

The meth, the air, with blackened lung we breathe it in
The grease, the porn, the bottles of amphetamine

We’re bleeding from the inside out
We’re bleeding from the inside out

America, America, America
We’re bleeding from the inside out
We’re bleeding from the inside
We’re bleeding from the inside
We’re bleeding from the inside out

The pills, the booze, the sugar, the news, we take it in
Every night it’s what we choose again and again

 

 

LIKE A VILLAIN

My mortal enemy
Something I can’t see
Sneaks up inside of me
And takes me for a ride

It’s having so much fun
Me with my weapons drawn
Never a battle won
It’s the beast that won’t die

What’s the worst that could happen
That could happen to me?
It takes my breath like a villain
It steals my heartbeat

Come look inside my mind
It’s in there all the time
The more I draw the line
The more it comes around

You want to tell me how
To kill it here and now
You’ve got your dagger out
Now it’s nowhere to be found

What’s the worst that could happen
That could happen to me?
It takes my breath like a villain
It steals my heartbeat

It steals my heartbeat, it steals my heartbeat
Like a villain, like a villain, like a villain, like a villain

What’s the worst that could happen
That could happen to me?
It takes my breath like a villain
It steals my heartbeat

 

AFTERGLOW

 

I know you’re coming back around
I see you turn your head for me
I had a dream you were my baby
We were floating in the sea, you were holding on to me

You’ve got a fire in your eyes
Just like the center of the sun
I look away but it is too late
I’m already gone

I know you want to put your lips against my skin
It makes me feel like I am seventeen again
I want to stay here in this state I’m in all night (All night, all night)

Take me out for a drive where all the lovers go
I get the stars in my eyes when you move just so
It’s such a beautiful night
I’m in the afterglow, oh oh

Someone told me you were looking
Looking for a real thing
I can be your real baby
It’s the real that I bring

So blaze a trail with those bright eyes
And I will follow through the bends
I had a dream that we were sinking
Into a love that never ends

I know you want to put your lips against my skin
It makes me feel like I am seventeen again
I want to stay here in this state I’m in all night (All night, all night)

Take me out for a drive where all the lovers go
I get the stars in my eyes when you move just so
It’s such a beautiful night
I’m in the afterglow, oh oh


 

THE INFORMANT

This kind of thing burns hot and slow
It’s bound to scald the flesh if you don’t let it go
But who to tell and who to trust
And who remembers anything that you discussed?

It’s nuclear in foreign hands
Somebody better get it before they makes their plans
In the underground, in the dark of night
You deliver up a paper that brings it all to light

The informant sleeps with one eye open
He’s the only real hope, real hope
Of bringing them down
The informant sleeps with one eye open
He’s the only real hope, real hope
Of bringing them down

Corruption, lies and years of greed
They were thinking they would never really ever bleed
But you found a crack in their steel hearts
You stick the knife in deep and watch them break apart

The informant sleeps with one eye open
He’s the only real hope, real hope
Of bringing them down
The informant sleeps with one eye open
He’s the only real hope, real hope
Of bringing them down

Bridge: You have it all, you make the plan
But someone’s waiting with a gun in hand
You see the one you’re supposed to meet
But the bullets start flying right there in the street
If you turn back now you’ll have to disappear
Or kill yourself from living everyday in fear
CHORUS OUT

 

INNSAEI

Here I am with the rain on my face
On the floor of the forest, no steps to retrace
With a list of violations we’ve made
Against truth and wisdom and the quiet of the day

Innsaei, Innsaei
Waiting for the moment when you’re finally free
Innsaei, Innsaei
Swimming through the dark to the clear blue sea

When you bleed what shade does it run?
Is it dark the river or pale like the sun?
Pull the thread and it all comes undone
Does your heart give a warning like the beat of a drum?

Innsaei, Innsaei
Waiting for the moment when you’re finally free
Innsaei, Innsaei
Swimming through the dark to the clear blue sea

And I know you
Like a stone washed clean by the river’s edge
And I know you
Like a dream in a dream I already had
And I know you
Like the ground underneath my heavy head
And I know you

If I know what I’ve done is right
Then I shouldn’t be feeling this animal fright
Like a deer in the bright headlights
Just another survivor in the dark of the night

Innsaei, Innsaei
Waiting for the moment when you’re finally free
Innsaei, Innsaei
Swimming through the dark to the clear blue sea
Innsaei, Innsaei
Waiting for the moment when you’re finally free
Innsaei, Innsaei
Swimming through the dark to the clear blue sea

LEGEND OF THE SILVER MOON

Silver Moon, cast your shadow down, onto the troubled world
Show your face, I can feel the weight, I can feel the pull
Coyote calls, I follow the sound, I follow him down to the river
I make my way, by the shadows that dance from the light of the Silver Moon

Everything goes quiet, And the river becomes fire
And the fire rises high, To swallow up the sky……..

Silver Moon, where have you gone, and how will we find you tonight?
This angry fire, won’t share the sky, it’s gonna’ burn us alive, alive

All of the wild things, all of the water
All of the beasts and sons and daughters
Cowered to the fire, afraid of getting burned
‘Cause the thing they never learned
Is to fight for what they have not earned
The light, light of the Silver Moon

They fought with guns, they fought with bombs, they fought with angry words
They screamed so loud, like the echo of a million raging birds
Then Coyote called, tell the rain and the clouds, and all of the stars above
To find the Silver Moon, and fight the fire, fight the fire with love

And the fire rolls and turns, And the air around us burns
It spins a million times, And opens up the sky…….

All of the wild things, all of the water

Ooooh, Silver Moon,
All of the wild things, all of the water

 

SAFE FROM LOVE

You run from the things I say
From the light of day, from the bitter pain
And you run down the fire escape
From the breaking waves, from the love I gave

You flee down the easy road
Where love never goes, where love never goes
You flee down the corridor
From what’s in store, when you give it all away

You’re keeping safe from love
Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby

You trip on your own two feet
When you’re close to me, on the words you speak
You run from the smoking gun
And you come undone, from the things you start to feel

You’re keeping safe from love
Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby
You’re keeping safe from love
Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby

I’ll break you down, baby you’ll come around someday

 

You’re keeping safe from love

Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby

You’re keeping safe from love

Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby


You don’t know when you’ve got it good, with a love that you should hold on to, but you let it slip away

TRANSCEDENTAL  

I set out to be transcendental
But my mind won’t quiet
My mind won’t quiet

I set out to make my heart settle
But my body remains
A pounding rapid drum  

QUIET, QUIET   (Settle down won’t you settle down)
QUIET, QUIET   (Leave me alone, won’t you leave me alone)
QUIET, QUIET   (Give me peace, just a moment of peace)
QUIET, QUIET

I try to tell my soul it’s fundamental
But the blood pounds in my head
And my pulse is wired

I know that I can be temperamental
And this state that I’m in
Won’t let me just be quiet

QUIET, QUIET   (Settle down won’t you settle down)
QUIET, QUIET   (Leave me alone, won’t you leave me alone)
QUIET, QUIET   (Give me peace, just a moment of peace)
QUIET, QUIET

 

 

OLIVIA

There is a storm that rips through all the houses
Tears them apart, leaving all disaster
You are the wind that makes it just get stronger
You are the wind

There is a rain that stays for 18 days
And knocks down the trees, and washes them away
You are the cloud that lingers high above
You are the cloud

Olivia, Olivia

You are a fire that starts just as an ember
Then comes the wind and gets you all riled up
And you blaze across the wilderness
Until the ocean meets your match

There is an ache that turns into a pain
And soon you can’t move
And it withers you away
But you love this state, and everyone will say
You welcome this pain

Olivia, Olivia

I will be your sun
Whoever knocks you down
Don’t fire all your guns

Olivia, Olivia, Olivia, Olivia

 

WHEN YOU LOSE SOMEONE

Underneath the shattered surface
Another hundred levels down
Is a darkness reaching further
Holding you there to drown

When you lose someone
When you lose someone

You can walk a million miles
Through the canyon in your mind
But when your heart is broken
You can’t run away from time

When you lose someone
When you lose someone

You see the hole get smaller
As you’re navigating through
Feels like floating in the water
Then you sink beneath the ever-changing blue

When you lose someone
When you lose someone

There’s a boulder where your lungs were
And it’s choking out the air
Every breath now a beginning
As your ravaged heart repairs

When you lose someone
When you lose someone

 

SETTING OF THE SUMMER SUN

Oh sun on my skin, let the healing begin
And the Winter blues and cool Spring hues
Turned warm shades of red to the orange as they bled
Into the ocean like a soul that’s found its home    

Echos I hear from the sea coming clear
Have I wasted hours living with the
Fear of love being lost in a wave
Taken under ‘til it’s never seen again   

I can’t hold you like an anchor anymore
There’s a way for me to want you and want more
And whatever parts of me have come undone
I’ll let them go with the setting of the summer sun

Oh love I can take so much then I break
Like a two-way mirror, you see me clearer
Now I go on and the things that went wrong
Are reflections of the way we chose to live     

I can’t hold you like an anchor anymore
There’s a way for me to want you and want more
And whatever parts of me have come undone
I’ll let them go with the setting of the summer sun

BLACK STONE EP LYRICS

BLACK STONE

I was born a December child
Soft and wild, soft and wild
I was born on a snowy night
With a light in my eye, a light in my eye
Dirty hands and dirty knees
A tomboy in the redwood trees
I was born a nature’s child
Soft and wild, soft and wild


Paint my face with red dirt clay
Watch it dry and turn to gray
Hills of golden grasses sway
The rapture of a summer’s day

I was born in a sacred place
Where all those sacred lay in grace
I was born on a mountainside
Soft and wild, soft and wild
Sleeping lady majesty
I think of you, do you think of me?
A red tailed hawk on your highest peak
I dream of you, do you dream of me?

Hold the broken bird in hand
Sugar water, help it stand
As it flies away again
Part of you will never mend

Blackstone, Blackstone, Blackstone, like a mirror
Black Elk, Black Elk, Black Elk coming nearer
Blackstone, Blackstone, Blackstone, I can see her
Black Elk, Black Elk, Black Elk across the river

 

THE SIREN

The radio is screaming noise
It’s like a bullet in my head sometimes
I try to breathe
Can no one see
We stand in blindness to our own decline?

I had a dream
I dreamt of silence
I know a place where the light still finds us

Ah, I’m running to the river
I’m swimming through the water
Gonna’ lose all my clothes
Ah, the woods are my asylum
The hawk will call the siren
Of the way that it was

I don’t remember the smell of summer
The ice of winter on my frozen face
The war is coming
We should be running
Out to the edge where the light still waits

I try to think
I can’t recall
What it was like through the eyes of love

Ah, I’m running to the river
I’m swimming through the water
Gonna’ lose all my clothes
Ah, the woods are my asylum
The hawk will call the siren
Of the way that it was

Run, Run, Run

Ah, there’s darkness all behind us
The stars have come to find us and go leading us on

Chorus

GHOST OF MYKONOS

Honeymoon out on the Brilliance of The Seas
French Riviera down to southern Italy
Eastward bound to the Grecian Coast
They bring you champagne for the toast

Like a shadow on the wall I was to you
Fascinated by the story of the two
Have you seen so much joy?
I have seen so much joy

Oh, I won’t tell them anything
Oh, I won’t tell them anything
Even though the truth will set you free
Now you’re just a ghost of Mykonos
Drowning in a cobalt sea

You bragged of diamonds and of dowry that abound
Befriending strangers and you buy another round
Oh and how the absinthe flowed
That makes a mad man, don’t you know?

Oh, I won’t tell them anything
Oh, I won’t tell them anything
Even though the truth will set you free
Now you’re just a ghost of Mykonos
Drowning in a cobalt sea

And every night you’re in my dreams
The wind and stars hear your pleas

Next day the bride wakes down the hallway on the floor
No recollection of events the night before
I heard it all through the walls of my room
Now she is the wife of the missing groom

Oh, I won’t tell them anything
Oh, I won’t tell them anything
Even though the truth will set you free

Now you’re just a ghost of Mykonos

Drowning in a cobalt sea
 

 

GOLDEN BOY  

In the morning light all those little things you did
They’re coming into focus, coming into focus in your head
And the sun across your face makes you look like a golden boy
But I didn’t see it coming, didn’t see it coming again

Lion heart, and the raging sea
Red like blood, that you hide from me

Oh, oh oh oh, you were right
You’ve got a wild side, you’ve got a wild side
Oh oh oh oh, it can’t be denied
You’re like the flood tide
You’ve got a wild side

Don’t you feel all the weight of the world on you
When you’re holding what you’re holding
Holding what you’re holding inside
It’s a crazy thing what real love can do
And you didn’t see it coming,
didn’t see it coming down the line

Burning coal beneath the ash
I see you now, we can’t go back

Oh, oh oh oh, you were right
You’ve got a wild side, you’ve got a wild side
Oh oh oh oh, it can’t be denied
You’re like the flood tide
You’ve got a wild side

Do all those things at night turn off your tragic light?
Do all those things at night turn off your tragic light?

The perfect mask of a common man
With a wounded heart and a master plan

Oh, oh oh oh, you were right
You’ve got a wild side, you’ve got a wild side
Oh oh oh oh, it can’t be denied
You’re like the flood tide
You’ve got a wild side
You’re like the flood tide 

 

DRIFTER

Friend, you're a drifter to the end
And I still remember when
I could see you from the shore

And friend, if you make it back to land
Come and find me if you can
My heart will always live inside of yours

Oooh ooh ooh......
Oooh ooh ooh......

Once, we were young and wild and free
And you tied yourself to me
Like a safety boat, I knew I'd need you

Once, you would tell me everything
And we'd run and swim and sing
And if I ached, you would ache too

Oooh ooh ooh......

Oooh ooh ooh......


Oh friend, there's an ocean in the way
And some things I'd like to say
It doesn't help us to ignore

And friend, you're a drifter to the end
And I still remember when
I could see you from the shore

 

THE BELLE SOUNDS ALBUM LYRICS

BOURBON ON YOUR LIPS  

You be the vase and I’ll be the flowers
I’ll be the minutes inside your hours
I’ll be the end to your bad day
If you be the thing I long to say

But don’t, don’t be mad at me
Don’t, don’t, don’t be mad

I’ll be the glow around your star
You can sing like strings on my guitar
I’ll be the bourbon on your lips
If you be the belt around my hips

But don’t, don’t be mad at me
Don’t, don’t, don’t be mad

There’s a pony that could ride us into the sun
And this is just a moment
In a moment it will be done, done, done

Don’t be mad at me
Don’t, don’t be mad at me

I’ll be the blue light in your flame
If you be the bulls eye to my aim
You be the sinker and the hook
I’ll be the last page of your book

SHOULD HAVE BEEN MINE

Ever since I was I child
I was taught to feel like I don’t deserve you
And I’m haunted every night by the feeling
That I haven’t earned you
You tease me with a taste
Then make me feel like I’m going crazy
To care about something so illusive and so amazing

MONEY --  You make me feel so hollow
MONEY --  I have to beg or borrow
MONEY -- You know I feel so empty
When you say you’re going to come around
Somehow you know you always forsake me

I don’t trust myself around you enough
to make the right decisions
and you’re the only one that has the power
to change my opinions
and although I want to write you off
I keep getting this feeling
That someday you’re going to stick around
If only I could just keep believing

MONEY – You want to take me downtown
MONEY – You turn me all around
MONEY – You’ll probably leave me for another
The way that this is going
I don’t know why I even bother

Oooohhh, Ooohhhh…..
MONEY – don’t think that you can break me
MONEY – and don’t think that you make me
MONEY – I’ll see you somewhere down the line
You’ll be begging for forgiveness
‘cause you know that you should have been mine

 

AWAY AWAY

Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away

Like a wave on the ocean, won’t you bring it on home
‘Cause it’s escaping and taking the center of my heart
And as a toxic seed is planted deep in ground
We can’t cut it, or break it, or even burn it down
It becomes a thing and you stay

Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away

Well, I could go, just like you, I could disappear for days
Never knowing or feeling the building bitter pain
But as you touch me, I see into the water’s depth
And there’s a shining glimmer, a glimpse of what is left
Then it goes away

Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away

(Try try try try) Bring it on home
(Try try try try) Bring it on home


Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away
Away, away, away, away
Bring it on home

CASSIOPEIA

There’s something different about you lately
I see the shadows around your eyes
Hear a different beat to your heart
But we all know how it is to try and stop once you start

You’re like a greyhound on a racetrack
Out of the gate you’re running fast
You’re going to wear yourself down
Take it easy on the first lap
There’s another time around

This is your warning
This is your warning
This is your warning

Don’t burn out, Cassiopeia
Don’t burn out, Cassiopeia
Don’t burn out, Cassiopeia
You still got light to give

You can kick this if you want to
Put on the gloves, get in the ring and start swinging left and right
Every day’s another chance, but every night’s another fight
You know you’re in a great position
You’re still young enough to change all of those little things
That later add up to changing everything

This is your warning
This is your warning
Let this be your warning

Don’t burn out, Cassiopeia
Don’t burn out, Cassiopeia
Don’t burn out, Cassiopeia
You still got light to give

 

THE STARRY EYED

There’s a ship leaving early in the morning
That’s full of people just like you and me
We’ll leave before the day that’s dawning
Where people live in fear of what they dream

You must forgive the starry eyed
‘cause they’ll always see things the way they do
And they live in a world where all the dreams have died
Forgive the starry eyed

Don’t fear us, come join us
‘Cause you know that you can’t do it all alone
The constellations will guide us
The moon will light us a path
All the way home

You must forgive the starry eyed
‘cause they’ll always see things the way they do
And they live in a world where all the dreams have died
Forgive the starry eyed

All that doubt will only drown you
Let it fall away like rain

They live in a world where all the dreams have dies
Yeah they live in a world where all the dreams have died

Forgive the starry eyed
Forgive the starry eyed
‘Cause they’ll always see things the way they do
And they live in a world where all the dreams have died
Forgive the starry eyed
Forgive the starry eyed

 

WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

Can we get it back? Can we get it back?
Ooohhh that feeling we had, When we were young When we were young?

Drive up the coast and get lost in the hours
Ooooh, no one has to know
Hold me tight by the radio towers
The sun comes up, we’ll make it home somehow

Can we get it back? Can we get it back?
Ooohhh that feeling we had when we were young
When we were young

Grab our friends and head down to the river
Ooohh, the sun can burn our skin
Stay all day ‘til we start to shiver
And pass the bottle ‘round and ‘round again

Can we get it back? Can we get it back?

And as the years go something changes
And we’re not just living for ourselves
And when it all starts getting faded
We want to remember how it was

Can we get it back? Can we get it back?
Ooohhh that feeling we had when we were young
When we were young
Oh you know that feeling we had when we were young
When we were young
Ooohhh that feeling we had when we were young
When we were young

ROCKINGHAM LANE

I didn’t know you lived on Rockingham Lane
The yellow house with the baby blue porch swing
My aching heart could finally feel no pain
‘Til I saw your car go down Rockingham Lane

Rockingham Lane
Is where I saw my love again
Rockingham Lane

Like a moth to a flame, oh I got burned
After all these years you’d think my heart would learn
How many times I have driven past this way
Now I know you are here and you live on Rockingham Lane

Rockingham Lane
Is where I saw my love again
Rockingham Lane
Is where I saw my love again

Just like you I’ve been moving on
I’ve had so many different lovers since you’ve been gone
What is it love’s made of makes it sting so bad?
The bitter pain of losing that thing you never had

Rockingham Lane
Is where I saw my love again
Rockingham Lane
Is where I saw my love again
Rockingham Lane
It’s where I saw my love again
Rockingham Lane

 

NIGHT OWL

Night owl, Night Owl
You’re racing through the blue light to my side
Night owl, Night Owl
Quiet through the cool air, do you fly

Night owl, Night Owl
Is it just the thrill, which we seek?
Night owl, Night Owl
Be on your way, but you’ll come back to me

Darkness won’t you stay ‘til I go down
Darkness won’t you stay ‘til I go down

Night owl, Night Owl
Will you calm my mind and ease my heart
Night owl, Night Owl
Please just calm my mind and ease my heart

Darkness won’t you stay ‘til I go down
Darkness won’t you stay ‘til I go down

Night owl, Night Owl
The stars have left, the sky is turning bright
Night owl, Night Owl
And now you’re gone, I heard your wings take flight

Darkness won’t you stay ‘til I go down
Darkness won’t you stay ‘til I go down
Darkness won’t you stay ‘til I go down
Darkness won’t you stay ‘til I go down
‘til I go down

 

ISLAND

The sands could blow away
A wave could hit today
But it’s way down deep- what holds us up

The storms just passed us by
And somehow we survived another crazy night

We are an island, island
Nothing can touch us way out here
And all around us loves’ disasters
Are ships that fade then disappear

My friends keep giving up
And sink when water’s rough
But don’t fear, don’t fear, love will shine again

You’ll know it when it comes
The warmth of real sun
Can’t fool even the heartbroken one

We are an island, island
Nothing can touch us way out here
And all around us loves’ disasters
Are ships that fade then disappear

So hold on tight through weather and through war
Sometimes what’s right is to love each other more
In times of anger
in times when you can’t find the strength to be together

We are an island,
We are an island
Nothing can touch us way out here
And all around us loves’ disasters
Are ships that fade then disappear

 

JUST LIKE GOLD

It’s pretty clear, by now I know you’re not a friend
You launch ahead, you leave your dust for everyone
But there’s no race and there’s no ribbon to be won
Just a pretty face, alone again without anyone

For what you put me through
Well I can forgive but you can’t undo

It’s times like this I count my blessings
For what’s real and true
And I wish somehow I could take back the love I gave to you
‘Cause it’s just like gold
In proper hands it can buy everything
But you spent it fast like cold hard cash
Now you have nothing

For what you put me through
Well I can forgive but you can’t undo

So what’s so hard, what could be so hard about trusting?
This ain’t no game
If you play your Queen I won’t play my King
I’m not here to trump you
I was only trying to be like golden wings
To an injured bird lying on the ground
With a song to sing

For what you put me through
Well I may forgive but you can’t undo
For what you put me through
Ooooh I, I, I can forgive but you can’t undo
Ooooh I, I, I can forgive but you can’t undo
Ooooh I, I, I can forgive but you can’t undo

SPARROW’S CRY

The trees are blooming crazy in this town
The light has changed, and sun is sticking ‘round
The chill is through, the chill is through
Sometimes I need the comfort of your voice
And I know the consequences of my choice
But I think of you, I think of you

Ooooohh I hear a lonely sparrow cry
And as fast as winter’s here it says goodbye
Oh but time with you can always heal my heart
As it’s done from the very start

The fireflies will soon be on their way
And I finally had some time I could escape
The Texas sun, the Texas sun
And even just a couple days with you
You clear away the haze that makes me blue
In California sun, California Sun

Ooooohh I hear a lonely sparrow cry
And as fast as Spring is here it says goodbye
Oh but time with you can always heal my heart
As it’s done from the very start

And summer flies by and days you can’t recount
And the birds are back again
And I’m fine for the most part, but I could always use a friend

Of all the years that we have been apart
It’s funny how I never feel that far
Away from you, away from you
oooohhhh

Ooooohh I hear a lonely sparrow cry
And as fast as Autumn’s here it says goodbye
Oh but time with you can always heal my heart
As it’s done from the very start
Ooooohh I hear a lonely sparrow cry
And as fast as Winter’s here it says goodbye
Oh but time with you can always heal my heart
As it’s done from the very start   As it’s done from the very start
