Prairie Winds

  • The Sound of Your Voice

    The Sound of Your Voice

    The walls in this home seem so thin

    Since the last time I let you in

    And every time I climb the stairs

    Every step is aware that you're not there.

    Chorus : But the sound of your voice won't escape me

    The sound of your voice keeps deafening me.

    The sound of your voice, when will it leave?

    The sun hasn't shone in four days

    The sky is filled with browns and grays

    But every thought I have of you

    Reminds me of the colour blue

    Chorus : And how the sound of your voice won't escape me

    The sound of your voice keeps deafening me.

    The sound of your voice, when will it leave?

    Someday it will all make sense

    But for now I'll sit here on the fence

    Chorus : While the sound of your voice won't escape me

    The sound of your voice keeps deafening me.

    The sound of your voice, when will it leave?

  • The Closer

    The Closer

    I won't take this anymore

    You won't close the god damned door

    The dark ages were worse than this

    You've gotta stop taking the piss

    Chorus: Cause the closer you are to me

    The harder you'll break from she

    The faster you'll run from he

    The closer you'll be to me

    But the further away you are from reality

    Let's put it all into things that we can change

    Inspired by the thoughts we can rearrange

    Belief in something that floats around

    Just brings us down, just brings us down

    Cause the closer you are to me

    The further away you are from reality

    You've been drowning for way too long

    His voice surrounding your head once strong

    Chorus: Cause the closer you are to me

    The harder you'll break from she

    The faster you'll run from he

    The closer you'll be to me

    But the further away you are from reality

  • Prize to You

    Prize to You

    I'm not going to right for you even if you want me to

    All the things that are out of sight will eventually come through

    The way I part my hair, the way that you just stare into space

    I keep thinking that I am some sort of prize to you

    Someone to conquer so unlike the others that you do

    Soon you will see, that all you want to do is change me.

    Chorus : I will give you one more chance to prove it

    I will give you one more chance to prove it to me

    But you had better move quickly, cause if you don't I'm gonna leave.

  • Wind and Sea

    Wind and Sea

    Been a year since you settled for what you didn't want

    Biding your time to leave

    He treats you as well as the way you feel

    Never gives your wounds time to heal

    You are face down in the water in the deep end

    Hoping to find something there

    Maybe you'll swim for a little while

    Soon you'll run out of air.

    Chorus : You're the wind and he's the sea

    Blowing through him recklessly

    Living by the hour would have saved you so much time

    What you hoped wasn't true could be

    Searching through space, now you know the size of it

    Still settle for mediocrity

    You are face down in the water in the deep end

    Hoping to find something there

    Maybe you'll swim for a little while

    Soon you'll run out of air.

    Chorus : You're the wind and he's the sea

    Blowing through him recklessly

    You're the wind and he's the sea

    Blowing through him recklessly

    You're the wind, the wind,

    You're the wind, the wind

    You're the wind and he's the sea

  • Every Morning

    Every Morning

    Every morning I wake up and say I'm done writing love songs

    Every morning I wake up and say I'm done writing love songs

    Then you climb into my mind's eye and oh oh, here's another one for the books

    Every morning I wake up thinking of you

    Every morning I wake up thinking of you

    Then you climb into my mind's eye and oh oh, here's another one for the books

    And you make me remember how good it can be

    You make me believe me again

    Yeah you make me remember how good it can be

    Make me believe

    Every morning I wake up and say I'm done writing love songs

    Every morning I wake up and say I'm done writing love songs

    Then you climb into my mind's eye and oh oh, here's another one for the books

  • Tomorrow

    Tomorrow

    A morning call put into you makes me feel something brand new

    You teach me patience across the line and tell me it will all be fine

    Move me from this place, let me step into the light

    So I can see you by the light of the moon

    Chorus: Don't be so hard on yourself, you said

    It's a big enough climb for us both to tread

    Just find a path that unwinds instead and it'll all be gone tomorrow.

    I worry about the changes, how our lives can take rearranging

    I'm boxing up history. Some of it still news to me

    There's years of things collected, some of it I've even resurrected

    Haven't a clue of what I expected

    Chorus: Don't be so hard on yourself, you say

    You've been sending me love from a long ways away

    I've had my illusions in my brain but they will all be gone tomorrow

    Yeah, they will all be gone tomorrow

    Chorus: Don't be so hard on yourself, you said

    It's a big enough climb for us both to tread

    Just find a path that unwinds instead and it'll all be gone tomorrow

    Yeah it'll be gone tomorrow, it will all be gone tomorrow

  • Prairie Winds

    Prairie Winds

    Dust scattered on the streets that I call home

    Must have mattered when the sun beat down on the snow

    The air is warmer now that spring has had a day

    Change approaches now that I am on my way

    Chorus: Prairie winds please blow me home

    It's time for me to be alone

    Prairie winds please blow me home

    It's time for me to be alone

    The skies are bigger now that the sun has set it's rays

    She holds close to her, so close you feel her pain

    Her want to grow in you has planted only weeds

    To find an answer of what you want, not knowing what she needs

    Chorus: Prairie winds please blow me home

    It's time for me to be alone

    Prairie winds please blow me home

    It's time for me to be alone

    The walls I've built here are built from sticks and stones

    The words I carve on them they break my aching bones

    I'm getting older now, brittle is my mind

    To believe in something that I faked through the whole time

    Chorus: Prairie winds please blow me home

    It's time for me to be alone

    Prairie winds please blow me home

    It's time for me to be alone

  • Falling

    Falling

    Well it's a bad time to bring that thing up

    Because that thing is gonna waste us so much time

    It hasn't even happened yet, why would we be scared?

    The only thing we have to prove is that we lived

    Rows and flows of angel hair

    You find yourself floating in the air

    No need to look down cause you can't see the ground

    Chorus: Oh I'm falling, yes I'm falling

    I am falling, falling for you

    Well it's about time to bring that thing up

    Because you know it makes me laugh to see you squirm

    It's all out there, no attachments

    Living and breathing on its own

    Rows and flows of angel hair

    You find yourself floating in the air

    No need to look down cause you can't see the ground

    Chorus: Oh I'm falling, yes I'm falling

    I am falling, falling for you

  • Paper

    Paper

    What does it really matter now?

    It's all ripped and tattered now

    Looking through me not much to me to you now

    This autumn feels like you did once

    This sudden chill, it was your season

    Guess I'll do without and I'll make it through somehow

    Chorus: Yeah you've got it all on paper

    You've jotted down all the things I did wrong

    Got it all on paper so I put it in this song

    Put it in this song

    I thought it through once or twice before

    I thought I knew, now I'm not so sure

    Was it all a lie, could it be goodbye this time?

    The things we said haven't gone away

    They're in my head almost everyday

    They may sting a while but I'll let them fly on by

    Chorus: Yeah you've got it all on paper

    You've jotted down all the things I did wrong

    Got it all on paper so I put it in this song

    Put it in this song

  • Everything

    Everything

    Chorus: Everything you have works better than mine

    Your cat doesn't shit and your dog doesn't bite

    Everything you have works better than mine

    The grass isn't greener when I'm the one you live beside

    Your car is newer than the feet I use

    And the sky is bluer beneath your rooms

    Your clothes are cleaner and your gitch is white

    I can say I've had much interest in my whites being that damn bright

    Chorus: Everything you have works better than mine

    Your cat doesn't shit and your dog doesn't bite

    Everything you have works better than mine

    The grass isn't greener when I'm the one you live beside

    I'm the one you tell when you're leaving town

    I'll call the cops when your house burns down

    I don' t own a tool for every little deed

    And I don't keep them safe by some lock and key

    I may sleep all day and stay up all night

    But the last time I checked I paid my taxes alright

  • Oh I Love You

    Oh I Love You

    I'm waiting for some sort of answer from you

    A yes or no, a maybe so won't do

    Give me some sort of sign to tell me what to do

    So I don't keep wasting my time with you

    I've waited more than a week since you last called

    Drag my ass all day waiting for nothing at all

    The tears I've cried made me realize the truth

    That I just keep wasting my time with you

    Chorus: Oh, how I love you

    Days go by without the sound of your voice

    Maybe it would be different if it was my choice

    Give me some sort of sign to tell me what to do

    So I don't keep wasting my time with you
