1. Elijah

From the recording Son of A Hero


Morning Lord, bring a new chord from somewhere beneath my skin
Up how the little birds go to swim out on the wind
Laid out on the Earth's floor count the veins in my hand
Through and through he moves me to wake up and try again
Great God, pretend now, humor us with your wit
Color us in sunshine and carry my bodies to rest
Make me `no promises,  but make good what you begin
Marry our hands to the twilight swallow every lie they've said
Overcome and underlived 
Your hair shuffles with the wind
Elijah, Elijah, Down from all the light
Who is it thats done the hurt on you, in the motel meeting we sleep
Face of ask, pillow cough, someone you need to believe
Chain choke around his neck broke, black like space in my teeth
Meet me out by the fountain, I'll be there when the sun and moon meet
He is a boy from the country
I am a child end to start
The sky is so busy
But it led me to his heart
We Promised not to grow old
And cold and thick in word
Our music it grew darker
This is how our city sounds
When is it you were hurt
When your eyes got changed
I hope it wasn't me
But I am selfish that way
Most of the time you smile
Its because no one understands
How far down you been and seen
Crawled up with your bare and dirty hands
Most of the time we spend thinking
How to impress you from believing
This weakness tied above my neck
This past I don't believe, can't let you see
Most of the time he comes heavy breathing
Dark shirt and a necklace, shoes shining
The weakness tied around his neck
Spend a whole life hiding if you're scared that way
Elijah, Down from the light
I care for you
But we are burning down and down
And taking each other to ash
I let you go and you will sink
I let me go
And I got a chance to escape me
I want you by my side
But we are sinking this whole town
And my lungs are thick and wet
I take your hand across my chess
And let it fall
And don't you go losing your heart now
