Our Hour

got to wake, wake up
it's five o'clock, morning
five o'clock, light's out morning glory

when I tell this story to you
you'll be shining in skies of blue
and though my sisters tell me wait
I can't wait for the day

when our hour, our hour shines so brightly
our hour, our hour, breaks me lightly...

...down like gold dust it scatters the milky way
down cobble street steps and into the cave
down roosters feathers and into the egg

don't take no for answers
we'll brave the best of them
we'll take the best of them

come turn your head up, this is the sun
don't go into the desert with your blinders on
cause our hour, our hour, shines so brightly


Blowing Glass

I haven't slept in two weeks
Something's got a hold of me
Staring at the ceiling is starting to despair me
Close the door behind you please, I don't want you to see me
I am blowing glass again, and my fingers are burning

Blowing glass can make you dizzy
Red is the color of my favorite bird
Blowing glass can make you dizzy
Sometimes it's easier to shatter, shatter

Melt it down, and I can make
A figurine for your wedding cake
One by one, you'll all be done
And lined up on my table
Close the door behind you please, I don't want you to see me
I am blowing glass again, and my fingers are burning

Blowing glass can make you dizzy
Blue is the whale that took me down into the sea
Blowing glass can make you dizzy
Sometimes it's much easier to shatter, shatter

Make me holy, don't break me slowly, make me holy, don't break me slowly

Close the door behind you please, I don't want you to see me
I am blowing glass again, and my fingers are burning

Blowing glass can make you dizzy, sometimes it's much easier to shatter
Blowing glass can make you dizzy, sometimes it's easier to shatter, shatter


Heaven

Birds fly in and birds fly out of my window
Can you hear me when I think of you so quietly
When I see you in my mind's eye, you look so very close to me
See your very eyes in me

Hear them warble and whistle in the trees
Happy ever after
I don't even know you, and if I did would you promise me
To take my breath away

Take my breath away...

Flying out of your heart, baby, your breath is cool
Never knew a dream like this could be so true
And it's full of you, this dream of you

I dream of you...


New Haven

Rubies in my room Ruby's on the rug
Mirror mirror on the wall
Can you hold me can you hold me
Safe safe

Don't have to cry don't have to cry
Don't have to live inside your eyes
I'm born now, I'm born now
Don't have to live inside your lie

Chorus:
There's no spells here in New Haven
No spells here in New Haven Green
No spells here

Rubies in my room Ruby's on the rug
Mirror mirror on the wall
Can you hold me can you hold me
Safe safe

Inside your stone and in your fright
I heard you waking up last night
And in that old and solemn place
The ivy covers up your face

Chorus:
There's no spells here in New Haven
No spells here in New Haven Green
No spells here

Rubies in my room
Ruby's on the rug
Such a fire light such a precious life
I have this friend and she sings to me
Inside her song she says I'm free.


Something Invincible

And when he said there's no miracle but this
steps on the subway on a cold, cold winter's night
Was I wrong?
And when he said, the light is there inside
Did you believe him, or did you run away and hide?
Was I wrong?

There's something true, woman, in this world

Were you arrested on the day that you were born
A shipload of pirates left you tattered worn and torn
Was I wrong?

Now on the platform, same train you've been waiting for
You can't remember, maybe forever and a day
Was I wrong?

There's something invincible in this world

When time was born, it's closing in
When I was born, it's an open in

And when she said, there's no miracle but this
You look inside her
And you remember what you're waiting for
Then you know that what you're waiting for is this


Shallow Water

You can put me down
You can put me down
On the water
Sparkling Water
Out on the edge
Makes no difference
Makes no difference to me

Hey, on the dark side
Hey, on the light side
Hey, in the shallow water

You can put me down
You can let me sink down
Down to the bottom of the sea
Down where the waves won't carry me
Makes no difference
There are no years here

Hey, on the dark side
Hey, on the light side
Hey, in the shallow water

(repeat chorus)
You can put me down
Down where my mind is free
Down where the light won't reach me
Down where you'll never see me

Hey, on the dark side
Hey, on the light side
Hey, in the shallow water


Queen for a Day

In this place there is very fine gold
Where fountains and palaces lie sleeping
God with your marionettes all dancing around you
Can you dream, dream, dream a little electrical flow for these poor, poor souls

And be queen for a day
In a far away land
A crystal ball, my very own snowflake Christmas land
Queen for a day, like my childhood dream
Coming back to me with his snow boots on, my very own dream

So sorry baby have a good day at school
And sit in the front and learn all that good stuff
I'll be so proud of you
My life sincerely wasn't all that much fun
But if you give me a crown, I'll put it on and be

Queen for a day, in a far away land
A crystal ball, my very own snowflake Christmas land
Queen for a day, like my childhood dream
Coming back to me with his snow boots on, my very own dream

Very own, very own dream
Very own, very own dream
Very own, very own dream


Radiant Shadow

You've got the most radiant shadow that I've ever seen
But I am not the one that's here to baptize you, and set your soul free
Even if we sat here all night crying, baby, makes me crazy
And I love you, but these words don't go anywhere
And I am only your reflection

What's black is white but north is never south
And I can see the secrets dropping out like pearls from your mouth
And when you smile that way, it's mysteriously breaking something up inside of me
And there's an answer to the prayer in this riddle somewhere
If we could only see it

Go ahead, say it, this is your sin
You might as well put a picture of me on it
Go ahead, say it, this is your sin
You might as well put a picture of me right on it
She breathed these words and said to begin dancing
She breathed these words and said to begin dancing

You've got the most radiant shadow
You've got the most radiant shadow
She breathed these words and said to begin dancing


Blow Them Away

Something feels sweet, but it feels like I'm tumbling down
In your house of cards, I can't breathe or I might blow them away
I can't breath, oh, I can't breathe, oh, I can't breathe, oh, I can't breathe
Let me breathe, oh, let me breathe, oh, let me breathe, oh, let me breathe

The gates are open, and it's flooding
All of the fish are lying on the ground
I'll come to my senses, baby, am I walking now
Yeah I'll come to my senses baby, am I walking now

In your house of cards, I can't breathe, or I might blow them away
I'll come to my senses baby, am I walking now
Yeah, I'll come to my senses, baby, am I walking now
Cause I can't breathe, oh, I can't breathe, oh, I can't breathe, oh, I can't breathe
Blow them away, oh, blow them, away, oh, blow them away, oh, don't blow it away.


Windswim

It's kind of cold out here
I got my coat on
And the leaves swirling round
Look like little birds

God I beg your pardon
I beg your pardon
For not loving
For not being strong
But I'm holding on

And those leaves keep swirling
And my mind keeps turning
Turning back to a time
When I was shining

And I start listening
The leaves are whispering
They say come inside
Swim in to the wind
So I let go, and I swim
Into the wind

And it takes me down
A little street Where the trees are bare
And the sidewalk's cracked
And there's no one around
And I sing

And it sounds like birds
And it sounds like flowers
Opening
And it sounds like words
I've never heard
And it sounds like words
I've never heard

The words are swimming
The words are swimming
In the wind
Swimming
In the wind
