Well, I came to the city I was running from the past My heart was bleeding And it hurt my bones to laugh Stayed in the city No exception to the rules, to the rule He was born to love me I was raised to be his fool, oh his fool Walk that line Torn apart Gotta spend your whole life trying Ride that train And free your heart Its midnight up in Harlem I went down to the river And I took a look around There were old mans shoes There were needles on the ground No more mysteries, baby No more secrets, no more clues The stars are out there You can almost see the moon The streets are windy And the subways closing down Gonna carry this dream To the other side of town Walk that line Torn apart Gotta spend your whole life trying Ride that train And free your heart Its midnight up in Harlem
Running from a bitter taste Took a rest from all the chase Feeling something anchored on my soul Played the game by all the rules Learning lessons no one gets to choose Everywhere I turn, here I am So walk away with me, walk away Ill show you that I would go anywhere, anytime I would do anything, anyway Anyhow Woke up feeling all adrift Pieced together what I missed Realized that you pushed me out to sea Followed from a lost place Dealing with the wreckage in my soul Everywhere I turn, there you are, you are So walk away with me, walk away Ill show you that I would go anywhere, anytime I would do anything, anyway Anyhow, oh anyhow No one cares to loan a dime Sorry if it cost you time Whatd you expect a desperate man to do? Cain and Abel lit the flame We can never go that way again Everywhere I turn, here we are, we are So walk away with me, walk away Ill show you that I would go anywhere, anytime I would do anything, anyway I would go anywhere, anytime I would do anything, anyway Anyhow Oh I would go Oh anywhere I would do Almost anything Anyway I would do Most anything Oh, anyway Anyhow Anytime Anytime Anytime Anytime Anytime Anytime
When the sun comes shining through Lighting up what’s left of you And you put it all aside for another day Pick it up and rearrange it Though you know that you won’t change it Cause you’ve always been a stranger anyway Now you left your window open Just to keep your spirit rolling But you’re hoping that your mind will close the door Take it up two steps higher When you’re drowning in the fire The hope you had helped you on along the way If the story feels exactly like a dream Don’t know what it means Things ain’t what they seem And you can’t just turn the page and let it go Things that you’ve been told Are deep down in your soul Now don’t make your move too early Or you’ll show up in a hurry You can fall down and surely lose your way Heaven help you if you mean it Cause theres those that would defeat it They can turn you around and take it all away Now dont look down in the dirt Just to find out what you’re worth Cause that song and dance was never worth the time So work hard and do it right Learn to speak up and to fight The truth is gonna beat them down the line If the story feels exactly like a dream Don’t know what it means Things ain’t what they seem And you can’t just turn the page and let it go Things that you’ve been told Are deep down in your soul If the story feels exactly like a dream Don’t know what it means Things ain’t what they seem And you can’t just turn the page and let it go Things that you’ve been told Are deep down in your soul If the story feels exactly like a dream Don’t know what it means Things ain’t what they seem And you can’t just turn the page and let it go Things that you’ve been told Are deep down in your soul If the story feels exactly like a dream Don’t know what it means Things ain’t what they seem And you can’t just turn the page and let it go Things that you’ve been told Are deep down in your soul If the story feels exactly like a dream Don’t know what it means Things ain’t what they seem And you can’t just turn the page and let it go Things that you’ve been told Are deep down in your soul If the story feels exactly like a dream Don’t know what it means Things ain’t what they seem And you can’t just turn the page and let it go Things that you’ve been told Are deep down in your soul If the story feels exactly like a dream Don’t know what it means Things ain’t what they seem And you can’t just turn the page and let it go Things that you’ve been told Are deep down in your soul

Wade in the water Wade in the water Children wade in the water Gods gonna trouble the water Whos that young girl dressed in red Wade in the water Must be the children that Moses left And Gods gonna trouble the water Whos that young girl dressed in white Wade in the water Must be the children of Israeli Gods gonna trouble the water Whos that young girl dressed in blue Wade in the water Must be the children coming true And Gods gonna trouble the water
They made their promises Then they walked away Fair-weather friends Are gone for good You never cared about What others had to say And through it all You understood You are my prayer in times of trouble Ill be your answer when you call Shelter you, shelter me Wake up, but keep dreaming That you were born to fly When your heart is heavy Like a stone Ill lift your burden high Until you realize That through the storm You soldiered on You showed me that your actions Speak louder than your words
We were talking - about the space between us all And the people - who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion Never glimpse the truth - then its far too late - when they pass away We were talking - about the love we all could share - when we find it To try our best to hold it there - with our love With our love - We could save the world - if they only knew Try to realise its all within yourself no-one else can make you change And to see youre really only very small And life flows on within you and without you We were talking - about the love thats gone so cold and the people Who gain the world and lose their soul - They dont know - they cant see - are you one of them? When youve seen beyond yourself - then you may find Peace of mind, is waiting there - And the time will come when you see Were all one, and life flows on within you and without you
Muddy feet and whiskey legs Comin at me like a subway train Riddled language fill my ears with pain Im laughing out loud cause I feel insane Too tired to yawn But Im willing to run All this crazy They keep me hangin on Looking for smoke and that aint no joke Hillbillies comin at me Wont leave me alone Summers past and Im losin steam A slummers call in a winters dream Too tired to yawn But Im willing to love Over the withered hills I roam Tryin to keep me from going home Black is the day and white is the night Just enough blue to make it alright How many dreams will you let flow by Before you choose one to ride? Muddy feet and whiskey legs Coming at me like a subway train Overthrow the spirit as the clocks strikes three Daddy calls are following me Black is the day, white is the night Just enough blue to make it alright How many dreams will you let flow by Before you choose one to ride?
