lyrics

EVERY MORNING WITH THE COOL SUNRISE / I TAKE A CUE FROM ANOTHER LIFE / AN OFFERING FROM WHAT’S BEHIND THOSE EYES / IN ONE OF MINE GRANDMA UHL PLAYED THE PIANO / BLACK GRAIN IT WAS BEAUTIFUL / SHE SANG A MELODY I DIDN’T KNOW / I SLEEP WITH MY MIND WIDE / TO GET A VISION OF ANOTHER SIDE / I NEVER LEARNED THAT SONG THOUGH I DID TRY / IN ONE OF MINE WAS AN OWL WITH YELLOW EYES / GATHERED LIGHT SO SHE COULD FLY / THOUGH I WAS CLOSE TO HER SHE DIDN’T MIND / LET GO THE SANDS OF NIGHT / HOPING TO CLARIFY / THE GOOD / THE HARD / THE WORDS THAT I CAN’T FIND / IN ONE OF MINE WE LAID STILL SIDE BY SIDE / OUR BODIES IN AN ARC OF LIGHT / AS YOURS BLED INTO MINE OUR THOUGHTS ENTWINED / LAYING THERE IN THE HOSPITAL HE SAID “OH AREN’T YOU BEAUTIFUL / COME LEARN MY NAME / YOU KNOW / I THINK IT’S TIME” / IN ONE OF MINE / TOOK A NAME FROM A DYING MAN / IN EXCHANGE FOR SOME TIME AS FRIENDS / AND SAT THERE BY HIS SIDE THEN WHEN HE SAID / “HERE I AM ALONE AGAIN / TRACING OVER ALL THESE OLD EVENTS / THINKING OVER MY MISTAKES / TRACING ALL OF MY MISSTEPS” / AND IN THE DAY WE SAY TO YOU / “YOU DID THEN WHAT YOU KNEW TO DO / WHEN YOU KNEW BETTER WELL THEN YOU DID BETTER” / EVERY MORNING WITH THE COOL SUNRISE / I TAKE A CUE FROM ANOTHER LIFE / AN OFFERING FROM WHAT’S BEHIND THOSE EYES / LET GO THE SANDS OF NIGHT / HOPING TO CLARIFY / THE GOOD / THE HARD / THE WORDS THAT I CAN’T FIND / EVERY MORNING WITH THE COOL SUNRISE / I TAKE A CUE FROM THE DOUBLE LIFE / I’M GATHERING UP LIGHT SO I CAN FLY / AND IN MY DREAMS AT NIGHT / I’M HOPING I MIGHT FIND THE MESSAGES THAT FILTER THROUGH MY MIND / THE GOOD THE HARD THE WORDS THAT I CAN’T FIND / I NEVER LEARNED THAT SONG THOUGH I DID TRY
