Lyrics

Hear Your Heart

I can hear your heart from here
Though you’ve long been in the ground
And through earth and 60 years
It’s a soft, familiar sound

And I never saw your face
Before Jesus took my eyes
And I don’t know what I’d say
If I’d found you still alive

I can hear your heart from here
I can hear your heart from here

And it’s so hard to forgive
Though I know why it was done
And I know it broke your heart
When they took away your son

Beautiful Girl

Unfurl your gown
A distant fuller skin
I knew you once

My God the sun
The windows bear your bones
Reveal your crime

Beautiful girl
Let the sunrise come again
Beautiful girl

Your sailor eyes
The water in the well
A thirst to fill

Let down your arms
The purging of this dark
The fall to free

Beautiful girl
Let the sunrise come again
Beautiful girl
May the weight of world resign
You will get better

A Part

Wishing I was born another
Year or two it could be worse
Heard she was a teenage mother
Heart it was a painful birth

Somewhere in the hills of Pittsburgh
There’s a kid who looks like me
Sleeping softly with his mother
Wonder if she thinks of me

I was a part from her
I was a part from her
I was a part from her
But I am a part of her

There’s a sparrow at my window
I was not an orphan long
I’m not saying that I hate you
I just wonder where we all went wrong

Nothing Can Be Changed

Cover my heart
I am walking down the path she loved
Two cedars grown
Only seedlings when her face was young

Forgive my doubt
I was only told I’m better off
Let not her stay
In that motel room she passed alone

And nothing can be changed anymore
And nothing can be changed anymore
Set forth her plate
She is welcomed at the table now
Look not for blood
To the same earth we will all return

Pittsburgh

Should you survive the fall from branches we have climbed and lost yourself in years the ones we left behind
Should rivers run between your frozen heart and mine and words we spoke so young were cast before our time

I’ll come for you if you want me to
Should all your sons forgive their fathers where they fell and wrap them for the cold to rest their winters well
I’ll come for you if you want me to Pittsburgh

Fortune

There's fortune in the furlough
And on the other side
Wrap ourselves in blankets
The coming of a bridge so wide, so high

It's murky in the meadow
As we draw in the lines we threw
And leveraging the ledgers
Forgetting all the blood we drew

But what I do remember
What I do remember is you

It's hollow in the harvest
What I've lost I count for gain
Filling up the firmament
Visions of the one you gave away

I Don't Feel It Anymore (Song of the Sparrow)

Hold on this will hurt more than anything has before
What it was, what it was, what it was
I've brought this on us more than anyone could ignore
What I've done, what I've done, what I've done

I've worked for so long just to see you mess around
What you've done, what you've done, what you've done
I want back the years that you took when I was young
I was young, I was young, but it's done

Oh take it all away
I don't feel it anymore
Oh take it all away
Oh take it all away
I don't feel it anymore
Oh take it all away

We'll fall just like stars being hung by only string
Everything, everything, here is gone
No map can direct how to ever make it home
We're alone, we're alone, we're alone

Oh take it all away
I don't feel it anymore
Oh take it all away

People Change Their Minds

You were set to sail at sea so young
She was only 17 I’m told
This is not about assigning blame
But it was wrong when she left you

You were just a boy when she moved on
Though I’m told that you were better off
Still I wonder if you wonder too
Where did she go

And people change their minds
And she was happy once
Like a mother keeps her children
Close enough to reach her hands

And I know it’s been a real hard year
But I’m hoping you can let it go
Cause you still have so much love to give
To those who still need you

Lions

And after the rains came
And washed out her remnant

And looking for traces
Of bloodlines in faces

And you remind me of the breath
That I drew
For you the shadow of a ghost

There's lions between us
They'll cut us to pieces

And before the sun came
Forgotten her old name

And you remind me of the breath
That I drew
For you the shadow of a ghost
No more

Ghosts of Penn Hills

Could I please have a minute to catch my breath?
Everyone that I loved has been left behind
Not the kind who would tend to believe in ghosts but I see them every night

Had a dream that I was just a boy again and my father was young and still full of time
Now my grandmother’s body is in the earth but I see her every night
I will love you till the ghosts of these Penn Hills will bring me where you are
I was woke by the baby at 5 am
Found out later that’s when you left and I hope that it’s true that we will meet again
And I’ll tell my girls your name but I’ll miss you all the same

Afterall

I still love you after all
I still love you after all
I still love you after all
I still love you after all

I still want you after all
I still want you after all
I still want you after all
I still want you after all

Will you keep me after all
Will you keep me after all
Will you keep me after all
Will you keep me after all

Please don't leave me after all
Please don't leave me after all
Please don't leave me after all
Please don't leave me after all

for better or worse after all
sickness and health after all
till death do us part after all
till death do us part
for better or worse (after all) after all
sickness and health (after all) after all
till death do us part (after all) after all
till death do us part
for better or worse (after all) after all
sickness and health (after all)
I still love you after all
till death do us part (after all)
I still love you after all
till death do us part
I still love, I still love

After all
After all
After all

Shattered

Broadest road that I can travel
I am drawn by what I see
Spirit living deep inside me
Is fighting to be free

I'm a homeless man who's trying (And i do not have a home yet)
Find a place to lay his head
Find some comfort in this journey (Just another taste of pleasure)
At least before I’m dead

There she is inside, waiting on another
Chance to make it right
There she waits until
Her brokenness can brake her
And finally be still

And these sidewalks speak of demons (There are demons all around me)
They are stepping on my toes
And my head just spins in circles (I can't even stop this movement)
Round and round it goes

And I’ve got so many pipers
(And I think I hear my song now)
Leading me right to my death
I'm a slave to my indifference
(And I’m comfortable in chains now)
I'm a corpse with borrowed breath

There she is inside, waiting on another
Chance to make it right
There she waits until
Her brokenness can brake her
And finally be still

There she is inside, waiting on another
Chance to make it right
There she waits until
Her brokenness can brake her
And finally be still

Everywhere

Can you hear me calling
Out your name
You know that I'm falling
And I don't know what to say

I'll speak a little louder
I'll even shout
You know that I'm proud
And I can't get the words out

Oh I,
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh I,
I want to be with you everywhere
(Wanna be with you everywhere)

Something's happening
Happening to me
My friends say I'm acting peculiarly

C'mon baby
We better make a start
You better make it soon
Before you break my heart

Oh I,
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh I,
I want to be with you everywhere
(Wanna be with you everywhere)

Can you hear me calling
Out your name
You know that I'm falling
And I don't know what to say

Come along baby
We better make a start
You better make it soon
Before you break my heart

Oh I,
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh I,
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh I,
I want to be with you everywhere
Oh I,
I want to be with you everywhere
(Wanna be with you everywhere)

Hear Your Heart

I can hear your heart from here
Though you’ve long been in the ground
And through earth and 60 years
It’s a soft, familiar sound

And I never saw your face
Before Jesus took my eyes
And I don’t know what I’d say
If I’d found you still alive

I can hear your heart from here
I can hear your heart from here

And it’s so hard to forgive
Though I know why it was done
And I know it broke your heart
When they took away your son

Passion Play

I should not have hid where my heart can't follow,
'cause this grace gets so far and too hard to swallow.
I've been running from Saul, he's been giving chase;
when I look in his eyes, all I see is my face.

You're still on my back after all these years,
chasing me out of hell and my nice veneers.
I don't know how you stand when you've got no floor,
or how you can breathe with your hands on boards.

I just want to be not what I am today,
I just want to be better than my friends might say,
I just want a small part in your passions play.

Do you hear when I call in the midst of wrong?
Do you hear these here words while I sing this song?
Are you caught up in me like I heard you say,
or just some big cashier that I'll have to pay?

'Just want to be not what I am today,
I just want to be better than my friends might say,
I just want a small part in your passions play.
