Lyrics “They never come back”

The River

Left out in the cold
Leave it, cut and run
Desperate soul, abandoned
Illusions come undone
Why would you hold on to
A cross you cannot bear
Let it go when it’s all sold down the river

Don’t fight it tooth and nail
With time you understand
Played the game got nothing
Ain’t good enough again
Nothing ventured, nothing gained
You’re better off alone
Let it go when it all is said and done

Let it go when it’s all sold down the river
Let it be when it all is said and done
Let it be unshattered soul and live forever
Like the river, let it go, let it run

Time to tear the pages
Time to close this book
Let it be lost memory
The train you never took
If this is not disclosable
Like rain it will be gone
Let it go when it all is said and done

Let it go when it’s all sold down the river
Let it be when it all is said and done
Let it be unshattered soul and live forever
Like the river, let it go, let it run

Let it go when it’s all sold down the river
Let it be when it all is said and done
Let it be unshattered soul and live forever
Like the river, let it go, let it run
Like the river, drift along, carry on

Edge of golden days 

Standing at the crossroads going nowhere
Just like you, devoted, dead-alive
Ain’t no whistling dixie to believe in
Time gone by, the stream is running dry

It was one for the money
Then run down go!
Turn on the spotlight
Come along and start a show

Two for the fame
Got no time to burn
So celebrate now
’cause we can’t roll back
On that broken track

You’re not forgotten
Nothing changed
Sacred names
At the edge of golden days
Still wanted – still the same
Light a flame
At the edge of golden days

Chuck and Jimi electrified that six string
Some would sacrifiy their soul for that
For town to town the circus kept on rollin’
Fire a cannon just because you can

It was one for the money
Then run down go!
Turn on the spotlight
Come along and start a show

Two for the fame
Got no time to burn
So celebrate now
’cause we can’t roll back
On that broken track

You’re not forgotten
Nothing changed
Sacred names
At the edge of golden days
Still wanted – still the same
Light a flame
At the edge of golden days

Standing at the crossroads going nowhere
Just like you, devoted, dead-alive
Ain’t no whistling dixie to believe in
Time gone by, the stream is running dry

Crank it up 

Old man stopping by the roadhouse near the red lights
With a broken pair of boots, knucklehead bike fat tire
Come on stop

Ain’t that much to remember
Not quite a lot that you can forget
Yesterdays is long gone
And this is here and now

Crank it up, up
A little ain’t enough
Down-the-line let the bell ring
Crank it up, up
A little ain’t enough
This ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings

Lonesome stunners and vagabonds walk a thin line
They come sneaking up, sticking to the rule sometimes

Sideman’s trail is a bumpy ride
The same old story known inside out
Yesterdays is long gone
Come on, get out, get out

Crank it up, up
A little ain’t enough
Down-the-line let the bell ring
Crank it up, up
A little ain’t enough
This ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings

No you know it ain’t over, no it ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings
No you know it ain’t over, no it ain’t over ‘til the fat lady – come on

Crank it up, up
A little ain’t enough
Down-the-line let the bell ring
Crank it up, up
A little ain’t enough
This ain’t yet

Crank it up, up
A little ain’t enough
Down-the-line let the bell ring
Crank it up, up
A little ain’t enough
This ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings
Uh shake it babe, come on shake it babe

Hang tough 

Ever since you’ve been walking the line
Tryin’ hard to move on
Got that sweet taste, your own medicine
Sometimes was just all alone

Now forgotten maybe out of your mind
Took a long way to go
Come on ‘bout now
It still can be found
Could this be just on your own

Still hang tough
Burn like fire and rain
The world’s in pieces
No one’s to blame
Still hang tough
Clear the pieces again
One at a time – after all
Still hang tough

We might fall, no need to cry overtime
Just the way we must go
You can‘t win for losing
Tomorrow can change
Come out on top, come again

Still hang tough
Burn like fire and rain
The world’s in pieces
No one’s to blame
Still hang tough
Clear the pieces again
One at a time – after all
Still hang tough

Still hang tough
Burn like fire and rain
The world’s in pieces
No one’s to blame
Still hang tough
Clear the pieces again
One at a time – after all
Still hang tough
Don’t plan to give it up
So call me from a lightyear away
And tell me everything is ok

Still hang tough
Don’t plan to give it up
So call me from a lightyear away
And tell me everything is ok
Still hang tough

Beautiful world 

Makin’no sense at all i believe
You do what you do – as you please
Hello i can tell you
Some mad men are pulling the strings

Still on the make
Can’t let go
That’s a part of the show
Get caught up in crime
Before goin’ for more

One by one, come pass the lies along
Hello to this beautiful world
As good as done
Did we get something wrong?
Hello to this beautiful world

Lies and rumors all put under seal
Did Cain kill his brother for real
Hello in the name of some god
You‘re raising your guns

Still on the make
Can’t let go
That’s a part of the show
Get caught up in crime
Before goin’ for more

One by one, come pass the lies along
Hello to this beautiful world
As good as done
Did we get something wrong?
Hello to this beautiful world
Hello to this beautiful world

Hope you like it
Hope you do
Things are pretty
And so are you
You smile so nice
Why shouldn’t you
Things are good
You think you’re too

One by one, come pass the lies along
Hello to this beautiful world
Hello Hello
As good as done
Did we get something wrong?
Hello to this beautiful world
Hello to this beautiful world
Hello to this beautiful

Merry – goround 

Had no promise no one told you
What it’s all gonna be
After everything you‘ve been trough
Still someone locks the key

This might seem like the only scene now
And you’re bound to stay
Never seen the lights of Paris
Had no Hollywood fame

Does it feel like the real thing
And does it feel right
Is it alright to see
That all the way you would fight
Lay it on the line
Let the rain come down
Tomorrow holds a better day

Laid down
Been a long time
It’s a merry-go-round
In a lonely town
Laid down
Wait another round
It’s a merry-go-round and round
In a lonely town

After all it seems like ages
Would you go back in time
That country belle, that little angel
Color balloons and blue skies

Stealin kisses in the moonlight
Secrets on that riverbank
This miracle you thought it was never ending
Hard to see things have changed

Does it feel like the real thing
And does it feel right
Is it alright to see
That all the way you would fight
Lay it on the line
Let the rain come down
Tomorrow holds a better day

Laid down
Been a long time
It’s a merry-go-round
In a lonely town
Laid down
Wait another round
It’s a merry-go-round and round

Laid down
Been a long time
It’s a merry-go-round
In a lonely town
Laid down
Wait another round
It’s a merry-go-round

Round and round, round and round, merry-go-round
Round and round, round and round, merry-go-round
Round and round, round and round, merry-go-round
Round and round, round and round

Blackbird 

Happened on Mainstreet
Dark night in June
Sirens and flashing
All red and blue
They said it was Lucy
Rumors are carried so soon

A stab in the back
Out of the blue
The Mayor would keep
A secret he knew
Lead to believe
All they could do is what they do

There’s gonna be one
Can’t sleep at night
To sing with the blackbird
In the moonlight
There’s gonna be one
In the dead of night
To sing with the blackbird

Turned out Lucy dated
Billy and Wayne
The latter was missing
A wanted man
Billy’s a cheater
Why rumors said the Mayor knew?
Himself he found a body
Ashes & bones
No one could tell
Who it was
Authorities stated
All they could do is what they do

There’s gonna be one
Can’t sleep at night
To sing with the blackbird
In the moonlight
There’s gonna be one
In the dead of night
To sing with the blackbird
Layin‘ down roses there
In the dead of the night
Layin‘ roses down
And steal away

Oh, there’s gonna be one
Can’t sleep at night
To sing with the blackbird
In the moonlight
There’s gonna be one
In the dead of night
To sing with the blackbird
Layin‘ down roses there
Layin‘ roses down
Sing with the blackbird
In the moonlight
Layin‘ roses down
Leave a secret cry
Sing with the blackbird
Layin‘ down roses there

Rock high 

Come into light
Blaze of a long gone sun
Outside you stand
Hiking that backroad too long

Take a free ride get in
Come on get on
It’s a game lose and win
Game lose and win

Rock high, roll on – you remember
On and on – you never been away
Rock high, roll on – you remember
How it felt back in the day

We go way back you know
Lined up like back-to-back trains
There’s something to this
Never jumped at the chance to fail

Take a free ride get in
Come on get on
It’s a game lose and win
Game lose and win

Rock high, roll on – you remember
On and on – you never been away
Rock high, roll on – you remember
How it felt back in the day

Rock high, roll on – you remember
On and on
Rock high, roll on – you surrender
Rock high, roll on
On and on
Rock high, roll on – you remember
How it felt back
How it felt back
How it felt back in the day

Can you hear me 

Long ago a time to remember
Future was the plan, quite easy to see
What did it become, gone forever?
Where have you been – til right now and here

You knew i would mind waiting
Bottom line is I am coming ‘round
So how can this become nothing
What it does , what it is, i ain’t kicking into touch

Can you hear, hear, hear me?
Shout it from the roof – down to the streets
Can you hear, hear, hear me?
Shout it from the rooftop – down to the streets

You can bet the condemned live longer
If it doesn’t pay, it’s all one to me

You knew i would mind waiting
Bottom line is I am coming ‘round
So how can this become nothing
What it does , what it is, i ain’t kicking into touch

Can you hear, hear, hear me?
Shout it from the roof – down to the streets
Can you hear, hear, hear me?
Shout it from the rooftop – down to the streets

You knew i would mind waiting
Bottom line is I am coming ‘round
So how can this become nothing
What it does , what it is, i ain’t kicking into touch

Can you hear, hear, hear me?
Shout it from the roof – down to the streets
Can you hear, hear, hear me?
Shout it from the rooftop – down to the streets
Can you hear, hear, hear me?

Open water 

Leave the the lights on
Leave the door open
The key’s in the lock
On the inside

Just finish my wine
Don’t need to come over
Won’t call you back
We’re done by now

For the sake of grace
It really don’t matter
Draft in my window
On a cold night

It should have been known
This apple tastes bitter
Been there, done that time to time

In Open water
We’re diving free
Whatever we ran through
Whatever we did
And long gone water
Doesn‘t mill no more
Was just a little over
Just a little over i believe

There ain’t no cure
It’s been a long time
We tried and failed
But it’s alright

Patient forgiveness
Won’t cry on your shoulder
No go on and on
As time goes by

In Open water
We’re diving free
Whatever we ran through
Whatever we did
And long gone water
Doesn‘t mill no more
Was just a little over
Just a little over i believe

In Open water
We’re diving free
Whatever we ran through
Whatever we did
And long gone water
Doesn‘t mill no more
Was just a little over
Just a little over
Just a little over i believe

Just the open water
Everything i need
