Track Name: Earth
She held me in her limbs of twisted vine
Her words were pure as water, sweet as wine

I could feel her on my skin
I could touch her with my hands

Caught up in a world of my own fears
I let her slip away without much care
I valued what I took not what she gave
Patiently she waits for love's return

I was wrong. I was wrong.
I should have never let her go
Track Name: Mrs Cannon's Curtains
Why can't I find what I want?
What I want can't be too much
When I get just what I want
I find that I'm out of touch

This house is haunted
This house is haunted like me

She lived here for 47 years
Raised family and saw them on their way
She left the earth in this front room
But her spirit decided to stay

She's here but she don't say so much
Things change, nothing's for certain
I try, then I pull the blinds
Over Mrs Cannon's white lace curtains

This house is haunted
This house is haunted like me
Track Name: By Your Side
The rains may fall and the rivers rise
I've seen it all; the truth and lies
The winds may howl, the skies turn black
I've played my hand, I won't turn back

In the middle of the darkest night
In the desert and the blinding light
I will rise as I have tried
I will stand by your side

The ghosts that haunt steal your mind
Stumbling through space and time
The winds may how, the skies turn black
I've played my hand, I won't turn back

In the middle of the darkest night
In the desert and the blinding light
I will rise as I have tried
I will stand by your side
Track Name: All Your Worlds Collide
A rare configuration
Of Venus, Moon and Mars
Drawn into something new
Guided by the stars

There's light within the madness
Fear behind your eyes
A heart so raw I hear its call
And all your worlds collide

She breathes in. She breathes out.
She breathes in and she breathes out
And all your worlds collide

When memories come flooding back
I move to higher ground
Still my mind until I find
Thanks for what I've found

She breathes in. She breathes out.
She breathes in and she breathes out
And all your worlds collide

She says "I don't know"
She asks to go slow
She says "I don't know"
She weeps then lets go
And all your worlds collide
Track Name: I Should Have Known Better
I should have seen it coming
I should have taken notice
I should have always told her
How much I really want her

I should have been smarter
I should have stayed closer
I should have known better
That I could never keep her

Falling, falling. Fall into winter
I will change
Falling, falling. Fall into water
I will change

I should have known better
I should have tried harder
I should have always told her
How much I really want her

Falling, falling. Fall into winter
I will change
Falling, falling. Fall into water
I will change
