Track Name: Light That Match
Light that match
Strike those pins
Knock me down
Knock me down again

Once we rode the waves
sun in our hair
salt in our teeth
felt the water break
pull the sand from under our feet
nothing burns my tongue now
nothing scrapes my knee
I stay out of the sun now
I keep my hands clean

Light that match
Strike those pins
Knock me down
Knock me down again

Once we drove all night
wind in our hair
blood in our cheeks
we would cut the lights
race the moon right over the trees
drink the bottle dry
watch the sun rise out of the sea

nothing breaks my heart now
nothing moves my feet
no fire in my blood now
I walk the lighted streets

nothing terrifies me
nothing can shake me
no power in the lines now
no flooding on the streets

Light that match
Strike those pins
Knock me down
Knock me down again
Track Name: To The River
I walk to the river
waiting to hear the water sing
I sit down beside her
trying to hear the quiet ring
the leaves break the falling of the sunlight that covers these banks
I've seen the water running I've seen the color wash away

I come to the river heavy and tired to the bone
I lay down beside her
grave as a slowly sinking stone
I see clear to the bottom
I watch how the shadows play
I've seen the water falling I've seen the colors bleed away

the light turns silver
draining the hours from the day
the weight of the water
pulls at the branches along the banks
and it tears at the fallen and it carries the broken on its way
I've seen the water rolling I've seen the colors fade away
I've seen the water rolling I've seen the colors fade away
