i am with myself late and night and i turn off the lights in my mind and everything is closer in the night and your turn out the lights anytime at all i keep a close watch on this heart of mine and everything fall apart and you take out the scissors and make more puzzle pieces anything is cold and you bring out the snow want to go for a ride down is this love? i don't want and everything is dark and you turn out the lights anytime at all and everything stark can you paint the canvas grey no colour at all i keep a close watch on this heart of mine it is the only one this life has let me find i keep a close watch on this heart of mine

here is a story of two city slickers that stumbled upon a Yukon Dream living in the great wild open a northern land they never seen they sold off all their possessions and hitchhiked across BC bought a rifle and a fishing rod and traveled on trout and rosehip tea oh in the great wild. met a geologist in Dawson City said "There is gold up a klondike stream" sold them a compass and a map and traded for his dog sled team went up the Demster highway leaves were turning yellow on trees they were looking for pacer gold and old miners cemeteries oh in the great wild they arrived in the tombstone mountains surrounded by limestone peaks they were the only souls around lost in the Olgivlies they build up a post beam cabin to keep them safe from winter split ten cords of wood shot a caribou and wildcrafted and preserved oh in the great wild alive in the great wild soon the days get to be longer the river ice started to break set out with the compass and map looking for land to stake at a big meander in the river they saw two grizzly cubs play in a mountain stream they play and they set camp on the other side of the river this is the bridge that they crossed over the river and they found gold the very next day oh in the great wild GOLD IN THE GREAT WILD !

The Fair is over The Fair is over and I am not sober but I am getting there I dont know where i've been I left my mind in a bottle of lemon gin I dont know who i saw it was Shwarmn Brumner but it was probably Brahm The Fair is over The Fair is over and I am not sober but I am getting there Absinthe for breakfast Beer for lunch Not Cucumber for Shady Grove Brunch Traveled the country to see Fred Penner but he pulled out like a teenage boy little pricker (but it still counts!) The Fair is over The Fair is over and I am not sober but I am getting there There is always next year to make more regrets and make more friends to drink with to forget. The Fair is over The Fair is over and I am not sober but I am getting there

Without giving anything away I can say it's by the sea It's a house that used to be The home of a friend of mine Without giving anything away You'll find ships inside of bottles And the garden's overgrown The house is white but the paint is coming off I didn't know if you wanted to When I came to pick you up You didn't even hesitate And now you and me are on our way I think I've brought everything we need Don't look back, don't think of the Other places you should have been It's a good thing that you came along with me Gold in the air of summer You'll shine like gold in the air of summer

i am singing this song it is time it was sung been putting it off for a while but it hard by now as the truth is so clear that i cry when i seeing you smile so goodbye so long the road calls me dear and your tears will not blind me anymore and farewell to the girl with the sun in the eys so i will kiss you and i will be gone and every time that i try to tell you that we that we lost some magic we had at the start and i will weep my heart when i looking your eyes and i search once more for the spark so goodbye so long the road calls me dear and your tears will not blind me anymore and farewell to the girl with the sun in the eys so i will kiss you and i will be gone i can see by your eyes it is time now to go so i leave you to cry in the rain though i held in my hand the key to all joy but honey my heart is not born to be tamed so goodbye so long the road calls me dear and your tears will not blind me anymore and farewell to the girl with the sun in the eys so i will kiss you and i will be gone

sundown in the Paris of the Prairies wheat kings and all treasures are buried and all you hear are the rusty breezes whispering around weathervane Jesus zippo lighter received the killer's face maybe some standing ina killers place twenty years for nothing well that is nothing new besides no one is interested in something you didn't do wheat kings and pretty things wait and see what tomorrow brings there is a dreamy dreams where the highschool is dead and stark it is museum and we are all locked up in it after dark the walls are lined with yellow grey and sinister hung with pictures of our parents' prime ministers wheat kings and pretty things wait and see what tomorrow brings late-breaking story on the CBC a nations whispers that we always knew that he'd go free and you cant be fond of living in the past because there is no way you are gonna last what kings and pretty things wait and see what the morning brings

Wise men say Only fools rush in But I can't help falling in love with you Shall I stay? Would it be a sin If I can't help falling in love with you? Like a river flows Surely to the sea Darling, so it goes Some things are meant to be Take my hand Take my whole life too For I can't help falling in love with you Like a river flows Surely to the sea Darling, so it goes Some things are meant to be Take my hand Take my whole life too For I can't help falling in love with you

Love of mine Someday you will die But I'll be close behind I'll follow you into the dark No blinding light Or tunnels, to gates of white Just our hands clasped so tight Waiting for the hint of a spark If Heaven and Hell decide that they both are satisfied Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks Then I'll follow you into the dark In Catholic school, as vicious as Roman rule I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black And I held my tongue as she told me "Son, fear is the heart of love, " so I never went back And if Heaven and Hell decide that they both are satisfied Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks Then I'll follow you into the dark You and me have seen everything to see From Bangkok to Calgary And the soles of your shoes are all worn down The time for sleep is now But it's nothing to cry about 'Cause we'll hold each other soon In the blackest of rooms And if Heaven and Hell decide that they both are satisfied Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks Then I'll follow you into the dark Source: LyricFind Songwriters: Benjamin Gibbard I Will Follow You into the Dark lyrics © BMG Rights Management

River Guard ~ Smog When I take the prisoners swimming They have the time of their lives I love to watch them floating On their backs Unburdened and relaxed I sit in the tall grass and look the other way And when I hall them in, they always say "Our sencences will not be served We are constantly on trial It's a way to be free" Most nights, I go for a drive To the highest place I can find Stand there on a cliff with goose flesh Watching the wind rip the leaves of the trees Death defying Every breath Death defying Soon we'll all be back in the yard Behind the wall Leaving heart Dreaming of cool rivers and tall grass We are constantly on trial It's a way to be free We are constantly on trial It's a way to be free

Why would he come back through the park You thought that you saw him but no you did not It's not him who'd come across the sea to surprise you Not him who would know where [on the island] to find you Sadness so real that it populates the city and leave you homeless again Steam from the cup and snow on the path The seasons have changed from the present to past, The past, the past Why would he come back through the park? You thought that you saw him but no you did not Who can be sure of anything through The distance that keeps you from knowing the truth Why would you think the boy could become The man who could make you sure he was The one, the one, My One, My One Songwriters: Leslie Feist The Park lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group

I don't want to be here when you get back from Texas [Chemanius:] You've been doing some thinking and I know just where that leaves us A month ago we were doing alright Now I'm just trying to get by This is one of those times when you're forced out of submission And the choices you've made are coming to conclusions A month ago we were doing just fine Now I'm just left here robbed blind I don't want to be here when you get back from Texas [Thasis:] You've been doing some thinking and I know just where that leaves us A month ago we were doing alright Now I'm just left here robbed blind Robbed blind

Don't get down Don't waste time on things that you can't ever change I know we all do Write a song All your new ones are the best you've ever sung Write another one And all you need to do Is get away from everything Quit this sad old scene Come back when you feel the need We'll all be here for you Don't get let down Don't spend time with people you don't even like I know we all do Write a song All your old ones don't mean a thing if you don't sing Any new ones And all you need to do Is get away from everything Quit this sad old scene Come back when you feel the need We'll all be here for you And find something that will make you feel Like everyday's too short We're only here for a little while You'd better make your mark Songwriters: Paul Hayden Desser
