The Summer they Turned off my Water I had a dream last night I touched your sweater And felt your body there beneath my fingers And you smiled the way you did The summer they turned off my water and you invited me over To your hotel room Beneath the quarter moon But I am not looking back ‘Cause I’ve seen the consequence Of gravitating to the dark side of you And how easily you go And how perfectly you stay away Your silence falls always the same I feel your hand slip from mine from a thousand miles away And I recall your promises I let them go a little slower as I get a little older There’s nothing to say to keep you from going astray But I do want you so I want you to know That the pictures in my mind Replay from time to time And that little house we built Belongs to someone else But I am not looking back ‘Cause I’ve seen the consequence Of gravitating to the dark side of you And how easily you go And how perfectly you stay away I had a dream last night I touched your sweater And felt your body there beneath my fingers And you smiled

Perfect little pictures, open little mouths I remember your voice From my old answering machine In a room that was never clean Looping playblack While I traced the pictures From the back of the book you wrote Traced them in raw charcoal Stained my fingers black I chased you back to the beginning Of the year I found you alone When I was too sick with wanting you To see what you’d become What have you done? Time steals away The things that you really meant I’m only as pretty as my silhouette But I’ve got some style I’ve worked hard to forget The way your boots would fall to the floor The sound of your key turning in the door But once in awhile I chase you back to the beginning Of the year I found you alone When I was too sick with wanting you To see what you’d become What have you done? Perfect little pictures Open little mouths The truth comes tumbling out It doesn’t make a sound

Lost & Found (Song for Ben) I drove all night to St. Paul for you Trying to find a safe point of view Blinded by grief, called for by the road You stay where you are, I’m coming home You stay where you are, I’m coming home I rested all my hope in your sweet sigh We lost everything but you can’t say I didn’t try When it’s the end, you feel it in your bones You stay where you are, I’m coming home You stay where you are, I’m coming home This is a song, for the lost and found The accidental sailors who have all but drown And I can hear your voice calling “Let’s move on” Oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart I drove all night through the pouring rain At an hour too early, but an hour too late And when it’s the end you feel it in your bones You stay where you are, I’m coming home You stay where you are, I’m coming home This is a song, for the lost and found The accidental sailors who have all but drown And I can hear your voice calling “Let’s move on” Oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart
