you hear a knock on the door and you lay that mop down don't let the dog out she'll run all over town the people standing there got a smile on their face looking right through you to some other place do you believe in the devil do you believe in the devil do you believe in the devil cause you got something chasing after you well they ask you how you are like your some old friend tell you how the world is coming to an end and you think it might be true cause there's bad everywhere look out the window say you don't care do you believe in the devil do you believe in the devil do you believe in the devil cause you got something chasing after you put away the magic bring on the verse lock all your doors and hide your purse the time it might be coming you don't know when diamonds will shatter and steel will bend do you believe in the devil do you believe in the devil do you believe in the devil cause you got something chasing after you you got something chasing after you you got something chasing after you you got something chasing

Whisper 03:00
it feels like hearts are breaking you don't know what it's taking to keep on keep on moving on a blink before the eye short line whistle cries racing a freight train before the dawn with wounds fresh and stinging church bells are ringing with hopes and dreams held hand in hand underneath the sunlight heading for the first night I don't know how much I can stand did you go knowing it gets better did you know leaving it all behind i keep on hesitating don't know why i'm waiting the hours late and the day is long through a hard morning didn't see the warning one headlight drifting on and on did you go knowing it gets better did you know leaving it all behind did you go knowing it gets better did you know leaving it all behind maybe i will die here maybe alone hear with just a whisper of a song but i'll know i had a lover who i loved like no other and ill lay my head down ready to move on

it is hard to imagine being so afraid when your down and your hearts grown cold and your dreams are shaped by the things you have seen how can one so young be so old ain't it funny how you can't can't stop from running and your hoping that it's only a thing your passing through something you have to do i still remember the tears on your face before you learned not to cry and you sat there so angry staring off into space hoping for the day of your time ain't it funny how you can't can't stop from running and your hoping that it's only a thing your passing through something you have to do there are thing you hold closely they alway remain part of you there in your mind and the voice you hear clearly why won't it change leaving you alone with your smile ain't it funny how you can't can't stop from running and your hoping that it's only a thing your passing through something you have to do
5.
any place you want to be anything you want to see anytime you are free whisper in my ear feeling like the sun will shine feeling like it’s oh so fine feeling like you can turn on a dime no more running ahhhhhh ahhhhhh ahhhhhh it’s got to be good ahhhhhh ahhhhhh ahhhhhh it’s gonna be good you’ve got better angels on your shoulder now working undercover bring your heart around any day your ship will come any day you’ll have your run any day could be the one when it comes you’ll know when it comes you won’t let go when you let true love show when your high when your low say you’ll come along ahhhhhhh ahhhhhhh ahhhhhhh it’s got to be good ahhhhhhh ahhhhhhh ahhhhhhh i’ts gonna be good

Hurricane 04:16
On a hill I saw a girl with laughing eyes touch upon my soul sunshine cannot carry me into the cave into the cave i go shadows playing hurricane pounding winds hard to explain once a shelter now a grave it isn’t safe to be here anymore in a dream i wander find myself among prarie grass smoke and fire everywhere is this the apocalypse at last i’ve been waiting patiently but it’s arrival has not come maybe there’s an eagle down and it’s too it’s wreckage i have come shadows playing hurricane pounding winds hard to explain once a shelter now a grave it isn’t safe to be here anymore beckoning mountain stream come to me i’ll be your friend come let the cool waters wash away your sins again leave your pretty house of cards sitting in the town it cannot stand when the wind it hard and trouble is at hand shadows playing hurricane pounding winds hard to explain once a shelter now a grave it isn’t safe to be here anymore, anymore, anymore yeah

Bluebells 02:30
the bluebells that you gave me are planted and in the spring when they come back, I’ll think of you light on late at night working hard to get it right believing, beautiful time moves on and you can’t turn back people come and gone somewhere there’s a light surrounding you tonight my hat’s off to you jean your heart was true deer by the window standing there looking in when it comes back I’ll think of you in the wind standing strong dancing slowly to a song the good times belonged to you time moves on and you can’t turn back people come and gone somewhere there’s a light surrounding you tonight my hat’s off to you jean your heart was true

Without 02:48
the best got no conviction stand off from the parade civility, humility lonely and afraid bow to misdirection the worst passions displayed turn yourself inside out believe the mess we’ve made without a heart, without a hope, without a heart you can’t love one another, without a heart rounding the corner rising tide of ruin speckled hen, break don’t bend hide beneath the moon buried in distraction hear the piper tune get in line find the time rest won’t come soon without a heart without a hope without a heart you can’t love one another without a heart
10.
nowhere, somewhere feet off the ground grinning from ear to ear hang on to the love that you found it is good to have you near it’s is good to have you near yearning, burning head in the clouds wipe away your tears hang on to the love that you found it is good to have you near it is good to have you near swing for the fences get on your way don’t look back the day is done you are free there’s nothing standing in your way what are you doing on the run talk on, laugh on hear that sweet sound what is it that you fear hang on to the love that you found it is good to have you near it is good to have you near it is good to have you near it is good to have you near
