You been on my mind day and night You been on my mind day and night You been on my mind day and night When the cold wind blows and there’s no place to go You been on my mind day and night Maybe I’ve been staring off in space Cause the snow won’t melt it’s piling up And they’ve shut the highway down You been on my mind day and night You been on my mind day and night You been on my mind day and night When the cold wind blows and there’s no place to go You been on my mind day and night Locked up in the hanging threads of reverence Don’t want to be a bother Or some burden on your line You been on my mind day and night You been on my mind day and night Everyday when you first spot the sun out east I’ll have risen hours before Pushing hard trying to keep up. You been on my mind day and night You been on my mind day and night You been on my mind day and night When the cold wind blows and there’s no place to go You been on my mind day and night

Driven to the wire again Just like it’s always been Out on top in the end Out on top in the end Surrounded by teams of youth As they hang on every word Out on top in the end Out on top in the end And we read it in the news And we read it in the news Photographs in black and white Blurry bodies in motion Out on top in the end Out on top in the end Ghostly sounds from the past Shouted out through the air Out on top in the end Out on top in the end And we read it in the news And we read it in the news He said he’s so conflicted He said he’s so confused Out on top in the end Out on top in the end And we read it in the news And we read it in the news And we read it in the news

There was just one stop light in the heart of town But man it sure made Mary awful mad She would bang on the dashboard scream and holler Like she was stuck in L.A. rush hour Cause Mary you see was raised out in the fields And to her a small town still was too big Her life’s rules were made by the land She had no use for the laws of man I used to tell her... Girl you belong in the country why you'd you ever come ‘round this way You don't belong on the sidewalks and streets cause you never cared what other folks say Mary had a mind all of her own But it's not like she lacked sympathy I've seen her pull over change a stranger’s tire They said she was best under fire But you never could tell Mary what to do That's why she hated that stoplight in town Her life’s rules were made by the land She had no use for the laws of man I used to tell her... Girl you belong in the country why you'd you ever come ‘round this way You don't belong on the sidewalks and streets cause you never cared what other folks say Last I heard Mary moved outta town Found a piece of land up in the hills Been growing her crop the best of its kind She's hard at work all of the time Truth it be told underneath Mary was soft And her heart was as big as the sun Her life’s rules were made by the land She had no use for the laws of man I used to tell her... Girl you belong in the country why you'd you ever come ‘round this way You don't belong on the sidewalks and streets cause you never cared what other folks say

I can’t believe what I worry about, as I page through a magazine People all being scattered about, making all my thoughts fall apart at the seems Fall apart at the seems, fall apart at the seems With all my dreams And I find myself here again, but there’s something to be said for that The covers feel warm again, and it’s all lost on me It’s all lost on me, it’s all lost on me With all my dreams I heard the words before, and I know it’s not a waste Everything was so beautiful before, I can still see it now I can still see it now, I can still see it now With all my dreams

I saw you hurting Standing next to me And the bombs kept falling Flashes of red and green Ducking for cover Tired and raw You proceeded to spill Everything that you thought We still stand We still stand We still stand We still stand Now what can you tell me Of his splendid decent If he knew it was coming Then why’d it go how it went It was all rather shocking I can see by your walk But what I can’t make sense of Is why you’re speaking of luck We still stand We still stand We still stand We still stand Head to the ground The twinge kind of ebbs As everyone’s planning How to honor the end I sat by the fence Things started to roll I could tell by your questions Time’s taken its toll We still stand We still stand We still stand We still stand We still stand We still stand We still stand We still stand

Don’t go away so fast, when you’re going Don’t go away so fast, when you’re going But go and breathe the words Spinning off the concrete in the street Slowly take it in Choose what to disregard and what to keep Made a stand, stood my ground Thought was the toughest part of all But nothing’s like practicing the art Of learning to watch you fall Don’t go away so fast, when you’re going Don’t go away so fast, when you’re going Cause it's batter up, take a swing, you don’t connect It doesn’t mean a thing As long as you brush off the dirt Step back up and take another swing Wanna wrap you in a quilt of gold Before you cross that threshold out the door But it does no good to hide your eyes From things I’ve seen before Don’t go away so fast, when you’re going Don’t go away so fast, when you’re going
7.
Don’t have to write it all down for the whole world to see Cause I love you even if you never do a thing Don’t wanna hear senseless noise it’s all a blur to me The dome of truth finds a voice in sacred geometry And they’re only making shapes with their mouths Don’t try to tell me they’re speaking And they’re only making shapes with their mouths Don’t try to tell me Gonna drive to the gathering found words I wanna hear The static from straining tongues only hurts my ears I’m just trying to sit back, resist the urge to pounce Takes all my concentration to keep from checking out And they’re only making shapes with their mouths Don’t try to tell me they’re speaking And they’re only making shapes with their mouths Don’t try to tell me

Some years ago, they rode thru the valley Some years ago, their voices rang Some years ago, they climbed up the hillside Some years ago And they would never raise up arms against each other When they met out on that strip of land Cause in the valley they saw today vs. forever Miles and miles above the piles of sand Some years ago, they rode thru the valley Some years ago, their voices rang Some years ago, they climbed up the hillside Some years ago And they bathed in the stories of the water Underneath that shelter of stone One by one all the sons and daughters Some stand united some stand alone Some years ago, they rode thru the valley Some years ago, their voices rang Some years ago, they climbed up the hillside Some years ago

He always came this way, must have been his route Nodding as he’d say good day, and carried on with walkabout Never knew his name, only knew his shoes Streets sometimes don’t look the same, that’s why it gets confused And I just wanna know your name. And I just wanna know your name. Who will be the one, to crawl with parasites Got to get your favors done, out beyond dim lights Spoke in all dialects, words often give way Frog stood up said, “Don’t dissect your dreams just cause they say!” And I just wanna know your name. And I just wanna know your name. Seems rather amiss, how hearts get tossed around And the way a simple kiss, can throw you to the ground So quick to usher in, ideas that dazzle bright But looking just beneath the glare it’s not quite so forthright And I just wanna know your name. And I just wanna know your name.

You never got your hands dirty You always found a way To slip out the backdoor In the middle of the day You left everyone stranded And holding the bag Cause you never got your hands dirty You just couldn’t understand From the very beginning It was so hard To dig in deeply In the recesses of the yard The shadows scared you off You just turned your head Cause you never got you hands dirty Rolled all night long up in bed Now you cry that you’re all alone And you don’t wanna wither away But let the truth be told You were always so afraid It mounts up to nothing But cold wasted time Cause you never got your hands dirty You can’t pretend that it’s mine
