Without You
written by Eddie Vedder
 
I'll grow when you grow
Let me loosen up the blindfold
I'll fly when you cry
Lift us out of this landslide
Wherever you are
Whenever we part

I'll keep on healing all the scars
That we've collected from the start
I'd rather this than live without you
For every wish upon a star
That goes unanswered in the dark
There is a dream I've dreamt about you

And from afar I lie awake
Close my eyes to find I'd never be the same

I'll shine when you shine
Painted pictures on my mind
Sun sets on this ocean
Never once on my devotion
However you are
Or far that you fall

I'll keep on healing all the scars
That we've collected from the start
I'd rather this than live without you
For every wish upon a star
That goes unanswered in the dark
There is a dream I've dreamt about you

And from afar I lie awake
Close my eyes to find I'd never be the same
Without you without you
 
Mother
written by Roger Waters
 
Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb
Mother do you think they'll like this song
Mother do you think they'll try to break my balls
Ooh ah, Mother should I build a wall

Mother should I run for president
Mother should I trust the government
Mother will they put me in the firing line
Ooh ah, is it just a waste of time

Hush now baby, baby, don't you cry
Mamma's gonna make all of your nightmares come true
Mamma's gonna put all of her fears into you
Mamma's gonna keep you right here under her wing
She won't let you fly but she might let you sing
Mamma's will keep baby cozy and warm
Oooh babe, Oooh babe, Oooh babe
Of course Mamma's gonna help build the wall.

Mother do you think she's good enough for me
Mother do you think she's dangerous to me
Mother will she tear your little boy apart
Ooh ah, Mother will she break my heart

Hush now baby, baby, don't you cry.
Mamma's going to check out all your girlfriends for you
Mamma won't let anyone dirty get through
Mamma's gonna wait up until you get in
Mamma will always find out where you've been
Mamma's gonna keep baby healthy and clean
Oooh babe, Oooh babe, Oooh babe,
You'll always be baby to me

Mother did it need to be so high
 
 
Free Life
written by Dan Wilson
 
Let's take a little trip down where we used to go
It's way beyond the strip, a place they call your soul
We'll sit down for a while and let the evening roll

Don't worry about the time, we'll find a place to stay
The people 'round here seem familiar in some way
Look kind of like we did before we got so cold

And in the air the questions hang
Will we get to do something
Who we gonna end up being
How we gonna end up feeling
What you gonna spend your free life on
Free life

Let's fall in love again with music as our guide
We'll raise our ready hands and let go for the ride
Down into unknown lands where lovers meet and hide

We got these lives for free, we don't know where they've been
We don't know where they'll go when we are through with them
The starlight of the sun, the dark side of the moon

And in the air the questions hang
Will we get to do something
Who we gonna end up being
How we gonna end up feeling
What you gonna spend your free life on
Free life, free life, free life

It seems so long ago, those empty afternoons
With nowhere much to go and nothing much to do
But sit up in my room and let the world unfold

And in the air the questions hang
Will we get to do something
Who we gonna end up being
How we gonna end up feeling
What you gonna spend your free life on

In the air the questions hang
Will we get to do some, do something
End up being
How we gonna end up feeling
What you gonna spend your free life on
Free life, free life, free life, free life
 
 
Silver Bell
written by Patty Griffin and Adam Steinberg
 
Silver bell
Silver bell
Yeah that`s the name of the old motel
We were traveling and then you fell
Down on a bed at the silver bell

How you been
I`m doing well
I hear you`re digging a hole to hell
How you been
I`m doing well
Meet me tonight at the silver bell

I hate to tell you baby
This is home
The wallpaper is a color called sea foam
Pull down the shades a little and you`ve got yourself a prison cell
Tell you about the wicked wait tonight
Baby at the silver bell
 
Silver bell
Yeah that`s the name of the old motel
We were traveling and then you fell
Down on a bed at the silver bell

I did a stupid thing
I even tried
Feels like a hundred bees are stinging me from the inside
Don`t know just what to do
Don`t know just who to tell
So I`m telling you to meet me
Tonight down at the silver bell
 
Silver bell
Yeah that`s the name of the old motel

I hate to tell you baby
This is home
The wallpaper is a color called sea foam
Pull down the shades a little and you`ve got yourself a prison cell
Tell you about the wicked wait
 
Down at the silver bell
Silver bell
Yeah that`s the name of the old motel
You were traveling and then you fell
Down on a bed at the silver bell
 
 
Lover, You Should Have Come Over
written by Jeff Buckley
 
Looking out the door I see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners
Parading in a wake of sad relations as their shoes fill up with water
And maybe I'm too young to keep good love from going wrong
But tonight you're on my mind so you never know

When I'm broken down and hungry for your love with no way to feed it
Where are you tonight child you know how much I need it
Too young to hold on and too old to just break free and run

Sometimes a man gets carried away
When he feels like he should be having his fun
Much too blind to see the damage he's done
Sometimes a man must awake to find that really he has no-one

So I'll wait for you and I'll burn
Will I ever see your sweet return
Oh will I ever learn

Oh lover, you should've come over
Cause it's not too late

Lonely is the room, the bed is made, the open window lets the rain in
Burning in the corner is the only one who dreams he had you with him
And my body turns and yearns for a sleep that will never come

It's never over, my kingdom for a kiss upon the shoulder
It's never over, all my riches for his smile when we slept so soft together
It's never over, all my blood for the sweetness of his laughter
It's never over, he's a tear that hangs inside my soul forever

 Well maybe I'm just too young
To keep good love from going wrong

Oh lover, you should've come over

And I feel too young to hold on
And I'm much too old to break free and run
Too deaf, dumb, and blind to see the damage I've done
Sweet lover, you should've come over

Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love
 
Lover, you should've come over
It's not too late
 
 
Vein In Vain
written by Ben Harper, Jason Mozersky, Natalie Maines, and Jesse Ingalls
 
Oh God here it comes again
Another day going down
Just make it to tomorrow
Just make it to tomorrow
 
Vein in vain
I'm going down slow
Vein in vain
 
Like a needle on a record
Yeah we scratch along
Never saying forever
Love and life on a string
 
Vein in vain
Going down slow

Going down slow
Vein in vain

Didn't mean to let you down
Didn't mean to let you down again
The body will always win
Yeah the body always wins
 
There's a hole in my heart
And it's filled with regret
So we settle for shadows
Shadows and silhouettes
 
Vein in vain
Going down slow

Vein in vain in vain
Going down slow
Vein in vain
 
 
Come Cryin' To Me
written by Gary Louris, Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire, and Emily Robison
 
Draggin’ around the sins of your father
Handed on down from one to another
Spinning your wheels from lover to lover
Afraid to come out from under the covers

When the world’s on your shoulders
And you just feel like hiding
When there’s nowhere to run to
You can come cryin’ come cryin’ to me

You know how to fly on the wings of disaster
You try to stand still but you keep going faster and faster
You thought it’d be easier in California
The tables will turn and they won’t even warn ya

When the world’s on your shoulders
And you just keep on sliding
When there’s nowhere to run to
You can come cryin’ come cryin’ to me

When the night seems colder
But the sun’s gonna shine
I won’t leave you behind
No you won’t stay behind

When the world’s on your shoulders
And you can’t keep from fighting
When there’s nowhere to run to
You can come cryin’

When the world’s on your shoulders
And you can’t keep from hiding
When there’s nowhere to run to
You can come cryin’ come cryin’ to me
Come cryin’ to me
When the world’s on your shoulders
Come cryin’ to me
When you just feel like hiding
You can come cryin’ come cryin’ to me
Come cryin’ to me come cryin’ to me

 

I'd Run Away

written by Gary Louris and Mark Olson

I could take a hint from you
I could take a little hint from you
And I’d run away
I’d run away with you baby
Yeah I’d run away
I’d run away with you baby

You said a couple things to me
You said a couple things that showed your place
And how many ways
How many ways can I say it
Yeah how many ways
How many ways can I say it

So we had a little baby boy
And knew it wouldn’t last too long
Kind of what I had in mind
And what I had in mind was strong

I recall a side of you
I recall a different side of you
And I’d run away
I’d run away with you baby
Yeah I’d run away
I’d run away with you baby

So we had a little baby boy
And knew it wouldn’t last too long
Kind of what I had in mind
And what I had in mind was strong

I could take a hint from you
I could take a little hint from you
But I’d run away
I’d run away with you baby
Yeah I’d run away
I’d run away with you baby
Yeah I’d run away
(I’d run away)
I’d run away with you baby
Yeah I’d run away
(I’d run away)
I’d run away with you baby

 

Take It On Faith

written by Natalie Maines, Ben Harper, Jason Mozersky, and Jesse Ingalls

There’s only one road
In and out of my heart
I don’t know where it ends
And where it starts

But the night is young
Younger than we
So lets burn right and wrong
I’ll forgive you
And you’ll forgive me

Take it on faith
That I’ll be there when the pain comes
And I’ll take it all on faith
That you will try,
try not to run
When it’s hard, so hard

I can be on fire
Yeah I can hold my own
But inside I’m just a girl
Who’s scared to be alone

Today was hard
But tomorrow’s new
And if you’re there for me
I’ll be there for you
Yes I will see us through

And I’m taking it on faith
That I’ll be there when the pain comes
And I’ll take it on faith
That you will try, try not to run
When its hard, so hard

I’ll take it on faith that you’ll be there
When the pain comes
I’ll take it all on faith
That you will try, try not to run
Take it on faith
Take it on faith
Take it on faith
Take it on faith
Take it on faith
Take it on faith
When it’s hard, so hard
