As the Sun Goes Down As the sun goes down Down around my ankles whoa my my There's a sliver of light Shaking through the night To my window I sit by the fire As the rain outside comes down like knives And I'll tell only lies Little lullabyes Girl I'm so young But we must ease ourselves back to life Oh tonight We ain't being ourselves half the time And it ain't right Feet are getting heavy Heavy as the night You ask me if something's wrong I don't know about that babe But it don't feel right Girl I stole a horse Black as night and named it the truth I'll come by your place And you'll wear your white dress What we'll do There's a place I know My Grandfather told me where to go A little mango grove where the river bowed Down in Mexico And we will ride on through the night Oh tonight Down down down down Where the water tastes like wine This lonely life is not for me Can't you see Still I hear it calling me Come and get daylight Daylight Waiting for my time Oh I Oh I'm just Waiting for my time

Standing on the Bridge Standing on the bridge waiting for the sun to rise I get the feeling that I'm never gonna get my mind back And I don't mind My feet are on the ceiling And my big fat juicy heart is bleeding Eyes are running like the Nile Time halts You start to cry and drop the knife As I begin to crawl towards the piano You're still standing at the door Tell me I'm dying baby I know How you look like an angel with a mercy dove Love So pure believe your a gift To me from above Now come over so I can feel your heart beat inside your breast Give me a kiss that tastes like cheap wine and cigarettes And the red blood still spitting everywhere It's in your pretty little hands And it's in your black hair Things go black Then we're in a place so serene Swimming in a deep blue tiny mountain stream Out of the water sitting looking in each others eyes Your rusty wet lips and your brown skin look so nice And a feeling A vision like I never had before Like I was you and you were me And we were sitting on heaven's floor I still see it baby Even though the time it takes is weighing on me

Butterfly Man Laying up in bed All night with you again Where we hide From the next day 'Cause we know We know That I In the end I really can't stay Pleasure and pain are both the same And love is just a losing game Wanna give it all But afraid to lose it if it falls apart We hold each other But we hold back We enclose one another Then we step back I can see it in your eyes You need to hold on to your life Now run away my dreams of paradise Oh I say that I'm a Butterfly man I'm just a butterfly man Today I'm yours But tomorrow when I'm gone You'll understand Butterfly man I'm just a butterfly man Holdin' me mama Can't you see Is like a handful of sand So now before I go away If I could seal your heart Deep inside The feelings of today I'll be Keeping the fire burning For the moment I return to see you But the only problem is I cannot promise anything We hold each other But we hold back We enclose one another Then we step back I can see it in your eyes You need to hold on to your life Now run away my dreams of paradise Oh I say that I'm a Butterfly man I'm just a butterfly man Today I'm yours But tomorrow when I'm gone You'll understand Butterfly man I'm just a butterfly man Holdin' me mama Can't you see Is like a handful of sand

Take These Chains Girl You may know by now I've been watching you lay by the fire While my desire keeps getting stronger How could I strangle my voice? This ain't a choice Just to prolong it Take these chains From off my back If you could be swayed to my side Time would not let me down I could touch you like ice And hold onto you like the night I've been sketching patterns in your head Like you would have said I was the water Baby so blow out the candle I know you can handle Just what we've got here Take these chains From off my back If you could be swayed to my side Time would not let me down I could touch you like ice And hold onto you like the night I've been sketching patterns in your head Like you would have said I was the water Baby so blow out the candle I know you can handle Just what we've got here Take these chains From off my back If you could be swayed to my side Time would not let me down

Lay Low 03:54
Lay Low Seem to be sleeping In a bowl that's leaking Drifting down the river Without aim But all those hours Parting up our world That I never call upon in vain Thinking back to the times Oh when I Had so little faith Just peace inside your hands Crying in the night Warmth inside my wine Come inside my mind And I lay low Wait for the right Find me where I lay low My hidden halo Down between the hills and valley side Can't turn my back on the shaded out Sun on my bedding Oh my shadow knows it's both the same Thinking of the times Oh when I Had so little faith Just peace inside your hands Crying in the night Warmth inside my wine Come inside my mind And I lay low Lights out I'm sitting by the river Waiting for new Things to write

Delivered 03:16
Delivered I'm so far inside the jungle deep More longer with each machete sweep My time for me is about to come Finally see all the things I've done I awake inside a dream Drunk and dazed under a tree I feel hands that softly touch my face Sisters in this hidden place They sing songs that fill my mind In the early morning light Up above I see the tops of trees Think I know just where they're taking me Down to the river I'm being delivered Oh My Down to the river I'm being delivered Oh my They lay me on a bed of reeds Upon wooden rafts to carry me With the water I begin to roam On the way back to the home And I calmly close my eyes If I'm going well it's all right Soon enough then I will see Just what's in store for me Down to the river I'm being delivered Oh my Down to the river I'm being delivered Oh my

Tired of Waiting Te amo si Si querer Parece que va llover Parece que va llover Ay mama no llores. All I really want in this life is To know what I want All I really want in this life is To know what I want I'm getting tired of waiting So tired of belating over you It's just my time you're wasting It's my pride you're breaking Girl we're through Unless you leave him Come with me tonight For a ride I've got the good love That good good good stuff Yes deep inside of me I'm a thief in the night In your mind you don't see me Then I speak In your eyes I can see that you need me I'm a tiger in the snow Don't you know you can feed me Do what's right Let your heart beat your mind Come and see me Like you did before Mamacita esperando mientras tu estas dando Indirectas al izquierda y derecha Yo sonriendo Pero adentro moriendo Pare fecha que tu y yo seremos juntos Yo se que tienes novio pero somos Bueno bueno bueno Muy bueno bueno bueno Que rico el toro Te digo. Mimado mimada hechate pa mi lado Tu si comes helado y canda vez que te veo Lleno de deseo Hay un pico rojo En mi alma quemando pa ti Mami si me vas a matar Matame con punal y no asi. Escandalos bonita y golosa Desde tus pies hasta tu boca Sabroso que cosa. Ya sabes Te quiero te quiero te quiero. I'm a thief in the night In your mind you don't see me Then I speak In your eyes I can see that you need me I'm getting tired of waiting So tired of belating over you It's just my time you're wasting It's my pride you're breaking Girl we're through Te amo sin parar Sin respirar sin querer. Mamacita tu eres la luna yo soy el mar El sol es la vida que calienta el agua. El sound de mi guitara Y de me voz llega a tus orejas en tiempo infinito. Las nubes son mis cansiones puras y llenas Y nunca lo mismo. El rio que se trae las montanas es mi sangre Que corre y corre. Y como yo tengo todo a mi lado Tu soledad es la cosa mas bonita Que nunca es visto. Parece que va llover Ay mama no llores

New Place 04:18
New Place In a new place Where the streets don't recognize your face And finally You can see everything Oh the red brick And the chimney roofs They watch us spiral down and out Spilling onto streets of gold Like streams of light And the rain last night Has glazed the scene And wiped the slate clean I say brother Where we going to And without knowing Without slowing Hunched his shoulders Something starts and something's over Wonder how we got so high I forget just what this was like I never wanna come back down Crawling on the ground And then the tension slips I think I nearly lost my grip And I can breath again Welcome back my friend Saturday night Stirring like a hurricane Four compadres Arriving and riding Like conquistadors Waltzing down the avenues of dawn Stealing furniture from lawns Drunken princes Brave in riches Darkened sparks Illuminated Verses we are long salated Oh oh oh yeah Wonder how we got so high I forget just what this was like I never wanna come back down Crawling on the ground And then the tension slips I think I nearly lost my grip And I can breath again Welcome back my friend Can we do it tonight?
10.
When the Night Coming down the dirt road to the town tonight There is a crowd around I can feel it breath More than a thousand souls out in the night I get so blind I can't see Smoke is rising from the fire that burns The sky is purple and the water rise People talking quiet as they start to learn To see with their own eyes There lives our lives Different as any other My pain is your pain Tell me Do you wanna go under? You can feel it when the night starts burning Feet shuffle on that day Then we gonna find What we're gonna be fighting Come again You can feel it when the night starts burning Make you wanna stay Light will fill your eyes We've got the seeds of life Hidden in our hands Planted by ourselves Now can't you see that We've got the seeds of life Do you understand? Heed the calling There lives our lives Different as any other My pain is your pain Tell me Do you wanna go under? You can feel it when the night starts burning Feet shuffle on that day Then we gonna find What we're gonna be fighting Come again You can feel it when the night starts burning Make you wanna stay Light will fill your eyes 'Cause you got love Love we got inside It's time To open our eyes And really wonder And really wonder It's enough for All we need in life Can you take me back? Can you take me back? You can feel it when the night starts burning Feet shuffle on that day Then we gonna find What we're gonna be fighting Come again You can feel it when the night starts burning Make you wanna stay Light will fill your eyes

Savannakhet Breakdown You're standing there as my bike died Invited me to come inside Faded white hat Young son in blue jeans Face I've seen before in a dream Your dad comes home drunk and merry Greets me as if we were married Invites me in for dinner and beer Slowly the daylight it appears And when it is time We can play this song When it is time I was going down to Cambodia But now that I've got to know ya I'm going up all the way to Vien Tan Hand in hand like a family man You've got a husband in England But you're split up and I'm singin' Songs about love Throwing stones with the kin Babe you know it is what it is And when it is time We can play this song When it is time Just a mess around Spending all my time Eating all my cookies girl And drinking all my wine Well I guess this town Is not where I reside And I can see that Now we're locked up in the hotel Like if it's over then oh well Silver ring you gave me is running through your hair Still I'm wondering how much we care And when it is time We can play this song When it is time
12.
Only Life 02:06
Only Life Your broken heart Is not my crime There's something out there That I've got to find When I'm in your arms I feel like I've come home But I gotta keep on rollin' On my own So close the door You know I gotta do it right One more last time Before we say goodbye It's only life It's only life darling But then again who knows The way I'm supposed to go But then again who knows The way I'm supposed to go

Mandarin Oranges I take the back door Past the bucket for a bathroom stall Getting cold without my jacket But I'm all checked in Climbing up the stairs With a box of matches I've got 16 kyat That's enough for me to dine On vien at the marketplace And a Coke with two glasses Listening to the chop Of the blade on the butcher block Now here I go Walking down the shoulder of the street Smell the dirty red smoke of cooking meat Standing there on the corner Eating mangoes with chilli sauce Meet a brown eyed girl As the sky starts turning brown brown brown I think I'm gonna like this country She says 'You know but honey I think you're right' And those burning stars Turning in the night Bathing her in purple light And I feel it Different than before As I leave this life Kinda like a ninja In the night Now we're eating mandarin oranges As the sun goes down around the orchard So when it comes time to get me Mama you know just where I'll be Where I'll be Island world If you look you'll find me Island world If you look you'll find me I met mi hermano from Mexico Me llamo pidel muy bien muy si es Alfonso And we get Russian Motos Take them back to Sittin like little kids with brand new toys Chillin' with them on the corner With arms over my shoulder Now that all right Eating food playing songs Until the next day comes We didn't even know how to ride before tonight In the morning hit the road Like gold streams of light Guitars strapped on backs We slice like knives Feel the wet breath of death on our faces As we duck behind a truck Tucked under the edge of time I trust I'm rising above the dust And flying That we're busted up inside a bus Just lying Then jumping up Thunder and lightnin' What are we finding No se cabrone Chango So n ow we're eating mandarin oranges As the sun goes down around the orchard So when it comes time to get me Mama you know just where I'll be Where I'll be You're I know you got some tricks For me up your sleeve You say that you're 19 And work at Rio Quay But I'm not the same same That you usually meet So if you like me For more than my money You seem real sweet Maybe we could be something Let's get a two two To the lakeside We could just talk For a little while And your day to day grind Is the real song I know the world feels cold But your heart feel warm There are a lot of dirty men That want to do you harm But you stay strong Carry on Working for your family Working so hard And I see your smile Makes me think that I Wanna live my life keeping you forever In my mind Island world If you look you'll find me

Daylight 04:19
Daylight As the sun goes down Down around my ankles oh my my As a sliver of light Shaking through the night to my window And I hold my fire As the rain outside comes down like knives I can't tell no lies And I ain't felt your thighs Girl I'm so young We must ease ourselves back to life 'Cause we ain't been ourselves half the time It ain't right Girl I stole a horse Black as night and named it the truth I come by your place And you wear your white dress And what we'll do There's a place I know My Grandfather told me where to go A little mango grove With a river going down to Mexico And we will ride on through the night Yeah we will ride on through the night Down down down Where the water tastes like wine Daylight Daylight Daylight
