Track Name: Gold Coins III
There were little leaves like gold coins on the ground today
A flock of golden feathers between tall towers here and
Across the way
But so few of the bells will ring before the gold has
Withered now to grey

The leaves of hope will fall
As the sun sets and rises
Wind will blow them all
As the tide sweeps in

There were sheets of paper like millions on the ground today
For all the good it did them the people chased them here and
Across the way
Gathered them in piles so many piles to tell us of
So many passing days

The leaves of hope will fall
As the sun sets and rises
Wind will blow them all
As the tide sweeps in

Sun rises and sets
And the land fades to grey

Head for the light
Don’t look for the reasons
As hour circles hour
And the days fell the seasons
Track Name: Days Fair Drawing In
Day has been short and the night will be long
Got to turn it around

Got a drunken monkey on my back
Got red wine in my eyes
Got a barstool back
There’s no-one coming you know he’s not coming back
But that also means there’s no-one holding us back
So hold my hand, let’s go out in the air
Forget all the things that are holding us here
Hold my hand like there was only tonight
With the filthy talking and the lies from the lights

Day has been short and the night will be long
Got to turn this around
Seems we can’t get it right ‘cause we don’t know what’s wrong
Got to turn it around

Got a drunken monkey on my back
Got red wine in my eyes
Got a barstool back
There’s no-one coming you know he’s not coming back
But that also means there’s no-one holding us back
So hold my hand, let’s go out in the air
Forget all the things that are holding us here
Hold my hand like there was only tonight
With the filthy talking and the lies from the lights
