Track Name: indian giver
they asked me what happened
what caused us to break
what mistakes did we make
you and i know

can i really blame you
for wanting to hide
your heart was tried
yes i know

but if you didn't want me
if you chose to let it die
could you've at least tried
to let me know


so, is this all that i love for
you and i no more than strangers


my heart had been broken
for the one hundredth time
could no longer deny
a lover grown cold

but if you didn't love me
if you chose to let it die
why couldn't your pride
sooner tell me go


so here i run
through the hole in this troubled storm
what the hell where you thinking

see me run
remember me once you've closed this door
and everything you'll be missing


put me back where you found me
return to me what is mine
my love my time
my embrace

forget anything you may owe me
it's out of my mind
forget we were blind
forget my name
Track Name: you had me
what have i done?
i should have seen it all along
but you had me
you had me

i was not strong
had not a care right from wrong
cause you had me
you had me

it's not you gone
just the fact you're moving on
when you had me
you had me

i have no say
just got to wrestle in this pain
cause you had me
you had me


and i may never know
what kept you so closed
what a waste of time

and all the times that i cried
frustrated, alone
what a waste of time


you loved my lips
but i could not settle for that shit
can't you see
can't you see

was i so wrong
in wanting a love good and strong
can't you see
can't you see


and i admit i was wrong
but i loved you well
what a waste of time

and you may never know
all the ways that you failed
waht a waste of time
Track Name: be gone
oh give me
the time to wait for dawn is fleeting

impress me
encounter the dead of night she's weeping

carry on
we may never meet again i called
but they say you've gone



oh give me
honest hands to hold my brother

and lead me
through valley's walked by none. i'm leaving

carry on
i will see the day light. hold your tongue
kiss and be gone
Track Name: the natural state
i've never felt so tall
worn by the wanderers call
worn my the many who have found their way

we lived among the trees
we lived in fear of Thee
we let our hair grow longer till our breath was gone


have we tasted
all that's right and wrong?

this is yours and this is mine
we will live and then we'll die


this is the Maker's land
this is the ground i stand
this is the sking that feels the cold, the sun


have we tasted
all that's right and wrong?

this is yours and this is mine
we will live and then we'll die
