Helena

Well the weight of water is heavy
When I see it in your eyes
Clouds can hold a lot of rain
Don’t you realize
The sky wasn’t made for fallin
Or to make us feel so small
And the ground, it wasn’t put there
To break our fall

Chorus
So don’t cry Helena
Don’t you shed those tears
Let me dry your eyes
And chase away your fears
We gotta bend a little
When we feel like breaking
Give a little when we feel like taking
Helena
(Don’t cry)

The moon’s a lonely maiden
Took a lover long ago
Crept into the forest
Left her footprints in the snow
For her love to follow
But a jealous sun would not allow
Smiled down upon the footpath
And she waits there even now

Repeat Chorus 2 times 

Half-verse
Tonight we’ll fly a black kite
Burn our candles in the rain
Lose ourselves in the moonlight
But we’ll be free again
Helena... Helena... Helena... Helena...

(Give just a little bit) - Just a little – oh Helena
(bend just a little bit) - Gotta bend just a little
Helena...
Helena

You Are My Everything

I always knew that you’d be my everything
The ace up my sleeve
The queen of my heartstrings
For ever and a day, I’m gonna be your king
Cause you are my everything

Chorus:
It doesn’t matter where you are
You’re my beacon, my north star
Whenever you’re here, near or far
You ease my burden, ease my pain
You’re my everything

Well I always knew you’d be by my side
We are the push, and the pull
The moon and the tide
Well the minute I met you, I knew I had to try
To make you my everything

Chorus repeat:
Solo interlude:

Well you’re one in a million baby – one of a kind
You are the one I thought I’d never find
I might be crazy in love, or I might be blind
But you are – you are my everything

Chorus repeat:
It doesn’t matter where you are
You’re my beacon my north star
Whenever you’re here, near or far
You ease my burden, ease my pain

It doesn’t matter where you are
You’re my beacon my north star
Whenever you’re here, near or far
You ease my burden, ease my pain
You’re my umbrella in the pouring rain
You won’t back down – my solid ground
The soul I lost and the one I found
My day and night, my guiding light
Scold me when I’m wrong and hold me when I’m right
My land and sea – my cup of tea
You are the very best part of me
My everything
My everything
My everything, My everything
Yeah yeah you are my everything

Piece Of Me

No one cares like I do
No one's been this close to you
Try as I might I cannot understand
Why I’ll never touch your hand

I remember the day you came
I just knew you were here
Before I even knew your name
But the Lord give it and the Lord take it away
But in my blood you will stay

Chorus:
When I’m low the moon looks gold
Not for me to have or hold
Makes no difference where I go
A piece of me will follow

Interlude

Chorus:
On the rise the moon will shine
To shed some light on this heavy heart of mine
Makes no difference where I go
A piece of me will follow
Makes no difference where I go
A piece of me will follow

You fell down skinned your knee
Got back up and smiled at me
In this dream, beautiful dream we never part
You take my hand and hold my heart
You take my hand and hold my heart

Nothing Left To Lose

Well I’m the kinda guy who likes to try
New ways to have my fun
But when it’s time to go I walk real slow
Cause there ain’t no need to run
If you think I’m a city boy
Then girl I’m afraid you’re wrong
Here’s a little advice that
You can take along

chorus
Take your fast way of walkin
And walk right out the door
You can save that jive talkin
Cause I ain’t listening anymore
Well I spent all my money
On all your fancy shoes
I gave you all I had to give
You gave me nothing left to loose

Well neon lights and endless nights
They’re all the same to me
I think I’ve had it up to here
With your kind of company
I need to find a little open air
And girl I might be wrong
But I think it’s time you best be movin on

Bridge
Well I like that cool breeze blowin accorss the water
Out here the sky is a wide as you can see
Where that big ol’ moon ain’t just some other street light
And if someone’s got a problem
You just let em’ be

Inspiration

When will you pay me a visit... Inspiration
Why won’t you come over and see me... Inspiration
You haven’t been ‘round here in quite a while
This disappearing act is not your style
You should try on my shoes and walk a mile

Chorus
I gotta loose this feud
Between my head and my heart
Cause they’re just drifting apart
And I can’t stop it
And if I choose one
The other will turn and run... and then
Everything I sing will feel like a lie
It just gets harder the harder I try
But one of these days I'll be high
On Inspiration

Well I jumped out of bed
Cause I thought I had something to say
But it just sounded like everything I said yesterday
Well it comes and it goes but ya never know when
The page is wide open but I can’t get in
I guess I'll go listen to Dylan again... and again

 


Chorus
I gotta loose this feud
Between my head and my heart
Cause they’re just drifting apart
And I can’t stop it
And if I choose one
The other will turn and run... and then
I’ll try to get up but it just gets me down
I already wrote about this one horse town
But one of these days I will drown
In Inspiration

Interlude:
I think I’m drowning
One of these – one of these days

Chorus
I gotta loose this feud
Between my head and my heart
Cause they’re just drifting apart
And I can’t stop it
And If I choose one
The other will turn and run... and then
I'll say nothing that I’ve not said before
I’ll throw my ideas on this killing floor
But one of these days they will soar
With Inspiration

Carry On

I’ve been down, down like rain
It came upon me like a big ball & chain
But I told myself, don’t be sad
Why so blue
I always knew that day would come
When I’d have you

Chorus:
Anytime you fall just get on up
Whenever you hit the ground just get on up
Happiness go and get it
Life can change if you let it
Baby, get on up and carry on

You found me like you always did before
One day you came up a knocking on my front door
Well I opened up – let you in
Like anybody would
And then I loved you better than
Anybody ever could

Chorus:
Anytime you fall just get on up
Whenever you hit the ground just get on up
Happiness go and get it
Life can change if you let it
Baby, get on up and carry on

Happiness go and get it
Life can change if you let it
Baby... yeah get on up
Umm get on up
Get on up – and carry on
Carry on... carry on

Montreal

Well I boarded a train out of Montreal
I was running after you
And I was thinking this city
Could tell me what I had to do
But all I see
Staring back at me
Is one more lonely mile

Chorus:
So I’m hanging on to this photograph
And I hope you have one of me
Sunday coffee’s on St Denis
We were never better
When we were loosing ourselves
In Montreal
In Montreal

Well I think it’s time I loose these blues
If this train I’m on is gonna bring you back
We’ve burned a lot of bridges
And tonight we might burn this track
But all I see
Is you and me
Killing every mile

Chorus:
So I’m hanging on to this photograph
And I hope you have one of me
Sunday coffee’s on St Denis
And we were never better
Loosing ourselves...

Bridge chorus:
Central station
The Belvedere on Mount Royal
Jazz in July
Hanging on to this photograph
We were never better...
We were never better...
We were never better...

When we were loosing ourselves...
With open hearts
Little did we know
That we were drifting apart
In Montreal
In Montreal
In Montreal
