 5 Days In May They met in a hurricane Standing in the shelter out of the rain She tucked a note into his hand Later on they took his car Drove on down where the beaches are He wrote her name in the sand Never even let go of her hand Somehow they stayed that way For those 5 days in May Made all the stars around them shine Funny how you can look in vain Living on nerves and such sweet pain The loneliness that cuts so fine To find the face you've seen a thousand times Sometimes the world begins To set you up on your feet again It wipes the tears from your eyes How will you ever know The way that circumstances go Always going to hit you by surprise I know my past You were there In everything I've done You are the one Looking back it's hard to tell Why they stood while others fell Spend your life working it out All I know is one cloudy day They both just ran away Rain on the windshield heading South She loved the lines around his mouth Sometimes the world begins To set you up on your feet again It wipes the tears from your eyes How will you ever know The way that circumstances go Always going to hit you by surprise I know my past You were there In everything I've done You are the one  Hasn't Hit Me Yet You say that you're leaving Well that comes as no surprise Still I kinda like this feeling Of being left behind Yea this ain't nothing new to me Well it's just like going home It's kinda like those sunsets That leave you feeling so stoned I fell through this crack And I kinda lost my head I stand transfixed Before this street light Watching the snow fall On this cold December night I never thought this could happen But somehow the feeling is gone You got sick of the patterns And I got lost in this song Hey hey I guess it hasn't hit me yet I fell through this crack And I kinda lost my head I stand transfixed Before this streetlight Watching the snow fall On this cold December night And out in the middle of Lake Ontario The same snow is falling On the deep silent water The great dark wonder Into the waves of my heart Into the waves of my heart  Bad Timing Hey it's me what a big surprise Calling you up from a restaurant Around the bend I just got in from way up North I'm aching tired now And I could use a friend I might be a fool To think that you do Want to see me again It's been awhile since I talked to you Nothing wrong Just nothing ever goes as planned Many times I thought I'd call I didn't have your number in my hand I know it's true You'd never do The same thing to me I never meant to make you cry And though I know I shouldn't call It just reminds us of the cost Of everything we've lost Bad timing that's all Maybe soon there'll come a day When no more tears will fall If we each forgive a little bit And we both look back on it As just bad timing that's all We used to have so many plans Something always seemed to turn out wrong I never could catch up to you Moving on and doing what you've done I don't know why The harder I try The harder it comes I never meant to make you cry And though I know I shouldn't call It just reminds us of the cost Of everything we've lost Bad timing that's all Maybe soon there'll come a day When no more tears will fall If we each forgive a little bit When we both look back on it Just bad timing that's all  Cynthia So you saw that fire in the sky Well I think that's so cool And I know that nothing will change you You are nobody's fool Cynthia Won't you take me to Pyramid Lake with you We could watch the spaceships Maybe they'd take us on a trip Into that never ending sky Into that wide and endless night And you stood in their beam of light And they showed you the bones on the moon Well I hope I get to go there With you real soon Cynthia Won't you take me to Pyramid Lake with you We could watch the spaceships Maybe they'd take us on a trip Into that never ending sky Into that wide and endless night We could get there Before the sun sets And we'd put up your tent Watch the stars Dance all night And watch that sun come up Cynthia Won't you take me to Pyramid Lake with you We could watch the spaceships Maybe they'd take us on a trip Into that never ending sky Into that wide and endless night  Photograph Started out so simple Everything so innocent and plain She was in a doorway And I was walking nowhere down the main She whispered something softly And stepped into the light Can you help me out she said I'm a little lost tonight One day love just hits you with a flash Lights go off around you like some photograph She said her bags were stolen All they left her was the camera on her arm She told me she was new in town Only two weeks off the farm Why did I believe her Heaven only knows She looked into my eyes And my resolution goes One day love just hits you with a flash Leaves you staring blindly like some photograph Pictures of two fools Laughing at the world Smiling as only good luck does Truth is you're not even looking at me girl All the time I was falling You kept on stalling Sizing up how big a fool I was Woke up in the morning I don't think that I had been asleep too long The room was dark and empty I could see that all my clothes and money were gone I've run out of excuses And people I can blame If she ever asked me too I'd do it all again One day love just hits you with a flash Leaves you staring blindly like some photograph  What Is This Love What is this love That I leave behind How can I turn From the tears in your eyes What is this world Where we always pretend That it is worth it Worth it in the end What is this life we share That I just throw away Is this love That causes so much pain What is the promise That I leave behind Why can't I Just lie beside you again What's going on How'd it get so wrong What is this dream That I'll never find What is this prayer That's stealing my mind What is this deal That I've made with fate And I wonder If I have left it too late  English Bay You are so far away On this cold and empty night As I lie in a hotel room Looking at a street light Outside my window I listen to the rain And the sounds of the passing cars And the waves on English Bay And I wonder if you think of me As I dream of you Do you hear the song That I sing From this hotel room 'Cause I see you in the stars above And in every setting sun And even though you're fifteen hundred miles away I hear you howling at the moon And I hold you in my mind And I start to float away Yea the whole world seems very strange In a pleasant kinda way And as the morning sun comes up And puts an end to this long night More than anything I wish You were here Lying by my side Holding me near Listening to the rain And the passing cars And the waves on English Bay  Head Over Heels Sun breaks I can't wait Til I'll be on my way again I'm sick and tired of waiting With nothing to do Watching the rain through a crack in the window It's the little things that get you through Like the same sun rising on me Is rising over you Walking and talking Birds in the sky You tell your secrets How gracefully you lie That's the way you come to me I'm head over heels And I'm always gonna be That's okay I love the way you come to me I guess we're tempting fate A little too long it seems Standing in this heat Is just like floating in a dream I've been torn apart put back together With a couple of pieces in wrong I'm holding up now But I won't be for long Tossing and turning Like waves in the sea You show myself to me You let me down easily That's the way you come to me I'm head over heels And I'm always gonna be That's okay I love the way you come to me I know one night together Won't make up for ten apart But I'm steady as rain Nothing ever changes in my heart Throw open the windows Pull back the covers I don't care what we do I've been standing for hours Now I get to fall down with you Walking and talking Like birds in the sky You show myself to me How easily you lie That's the way you come to me I'm head over heels And I'm always gonna be That's okay I love the way you come to me  Til I Gain Control Again Just like the sun over the mountaintop You know I'll always come again You know I love to spend my mornings Like sunlight dancing on your skin I've never gone so wrong As for telling lies to you What you see is what I am There is nothing I could hide from you You see me better than I can Out on the road that lies before me now There are some turns where I will spin I only hope that you can hold me now Til I can gain control again And like a lighthouse you must stand alone Landmark a safe journey's end No matter what sea I've been sailing on I'll always come back home again Out on the road that lies before me now There are some turns where I will spin I only hope that you can hold me now Til I can gain control again I only hope that you can hold me now Til I can gain control again  Dark Angel I met this girl She's walking through one of my dreams She kissed my eyes And everything that she said Made so much sense to me That I still feel like I'm half asleep My dark angel She gave me diamonds for eyes She walked by Now I'm hypnotised By this dream That just won't stop And I feel Like I've always been lost in this dream The rumours of heaven Only speed the truth on earth My dark angel Shine your light on my curse You are the other that I have to find Until I do I guess I'll see you 'round my mind So Colorado Is a place I have to go I heard a rumour She loves the mountains and the snow My dark angel She gave me diamonds for eyes My dark angel I offer you my heart My dark angel I think I loved you from the start 'Cause there is this face I know That I've never seen Sometimes I feel I'm living in Someone else's dream Still I'd like to thank you For stopping to talk And I wonder Just into who's dream did who walk Oh my dark angel Shine your light on me Shine your light Shine your light Shine your light on me  Know Where You Go / Tell Me Your Dream Nothing can compare To how I feel When I'm by your side And nothing can compare To the world I see in your eyes 'Cause I know where you go Love how you know How to take me there Yea I know where you go Love how you know How to take me there You fill my head With colours Of wonder and delight You move across my mind Like the dance Of the Northern Lights 'Cause I know where you go Love how you know How to take me there Yea I know where you go Love how you know How to take me there As we sat in front of that August moon You said the clouds they look like angel wings Sometimes I wonder if you can read my mind 'Cause I was thinking the very same thing When I'm with you all the stars shine through My heart opens up like a morning flower You know I'd leave it all behind 'Cause my only peace of mind Is when I'm here with you So tell me your dream Lay your head on my pillow Tell me the things that you hide away Your pain Your pleasure Your sorrow Tell me the things that you hide away Your pain Your pleasure Your sorrow
