Track Name: Haunted Day & Night
that devil got the best of me
on accounts of his blazing speed
oh i can play the fool
it's not exactly a new role for me

you can survive all types of hell
where we end is still hard to tell
but this too will pass
as the sun slips pass the trees

we're gonna find that ghost someday
we're gonna find that ghost someday someday
bound by the heavens to do whatever it takes
we're gonna find that ghost someday

i always thought we'd be alright
but chance plays tricks sometimes
then you got lost
you'd always been hard to find

now i'm haunted night and day
that girl got the best of me
now i can't sleep
now i can't even breathe...

we're gonna find that ghost someday
we're gonna find that ghost someday someday
bound by the heavens to do whatever it takes
we're gonna find that ghost someday

time keeps piling on
18 months now you've been gone
i still remember
you dancing like a devil at the lake

that girl got the best of me
on accounts of her blazing speed
oh i can play the fool
it's not exactly a new role for me
Track Name: There Will Be Days We Know Surrender
if the wind could lift me from this body
raise me up as the clouds are parting
and the sun was breaking for me

i would sing your song so clearly
every corner of the earth they'd hear me
and in my song I name you my queen

one day when the oceans rise up
and each of us becomes an island
I would swim the globe to find you

there will be days that are against us
there will be times when we can't stand up
there will be miles that lead us nowhere
there will be days we know surrender
there will be days we know surrender

if my voice could rise forever
reaching up to touch the heavens
i would call your name out on high

but when the sky erupts in lightning
and all the world around is frightening
i will look to find strength in your eyes

and when the night surrounds us finally
we all walk into the darkness blindly
i can always count on your light t

here will be days that are against us
there will be times when we can't stand up
there will be miles that lead us nowhere
there will be days we know surrender
there will be days we know surrender
there will be days we know surrender
there will be days we know surrender
Track Name: Your Great Divide
if i stood before your gates
could you turn me away
if i walked across these states
made a home on the western plains

the bone dry desert plains
if i keep my secrets well
and i don't fall too far behind
i will ride those lonesome rails
gone after that girl of mine
gone like her bright blue eyes

if i can climb the highest peaks
and cross your great divide
if i never pause for sleep
and leave this all behind
cross the Colorado line

if i stood there in your sights
would you let me by
too fearful to meet your eyes
gone like my western skies
gone like those dreams of mine
Track Name: Must be that God is Crying
f I had never seen the rain
would i think that god was crying
if i had never seen snow
would i think the sky was falling

had i never known love before
would i feel my heart bursting
had i never been known to drink
would i still go through my life thirsting...

first from above and then from below
our time here is divided it weighs on our soul
damned if you do
don't you know
the way is uncertain
no one knows which way to go...

if i had never felt the sun
would i feel my skin afire
if i had never worked at all
would i have no cause to tire

if i walked the world around
would i still wind up at your table
if only were it that i was a better man
more confident and stable...

first from above and then below
the damage is done before you know
i'm still troubled by the words that you wrote
damned if you do and if you don't

had i never seen the rain
would i cower for fear of drowning
if i had never felt love before
could i dismiss my hearts' pounding

first from above and then from below
our time here is divided it weighs on our soul
damned if you do don't you know
the way is uncertain no one knows which way
Track Name: When We're Far Away at Sea
If I were to brave the storm
If I were to go it alone
If I were stripped to the bone
by the salt and the sea and the sun

If I were just so strong
didn't seek those comforting arms or a place to belong
didn't require validation by anyone
well, then boys, I'd raise these sails
and go to where the wind prevails
by tooth and by nail, I'd set these eyes on the horizon

The wind and the rain
Calls me again
Lost in the waves
pulling me in
I'd fly my flag
like all good sailors do
white sails burst on a canvas of blue
I'd harness the sea to bring me home to you

If I were a fraction of the man
and if I could steady these legs on land
enough to stand, then i'd stand up and walk on back to you
if these words could ring true
if my lips were so compelled to move
I would speak you the truth, abandon the ruse
and make room for your love

The wind and the rain
Calls me again
Lost in the waves
pulling me in
I'd fly my flag
like all good sailors do
white sails burst on a canvas of blue
I'd harness the sea to bring me home to you
