Where have you gone, have you been hiding Under rocks in the front garden Waiting for the search party to be called off Where have you gone, down by the river Have you been wading in the water So the hounds won’t catch your scent and track you down Where have you gone Where have you gone my friend and brother Do you hear me when I call you Or have you wondered too far into the woods Did you leave no trail to follow Through the mountain and the hollow With imaginary armies on your tale Where have you gone Wading in the water, wading in the water Where have you gone Where have you gone, have you been hiding Under rocks in the garden And will I find you if I look there long enough Where have you gone, down by the river Have you been wading in the water So the hounds won’t catch your scent and track you down here have you gone Wading in the water, wading in the water Where have you gone

Caught you dreaming in the moonlight Caught your eye then we walked some miles together And I remember standing in the school yard Everything was rich and full of color And I remember waiting I remember waiting For something All the other players in the picture Stand in the periphery in the space between What I am and what I’m not That big thick line is getting thinner And I remember waiting I remember waiting For something To get me out of here

I wanna run from this world sometimes I wanna run from this world

No Love 02:16
No Love, no drug’s gonna fill this hole No foolish heart’s gonna save my soul I wanna go, I wanna go home No burning flame’s gonna warm this chill And the wisest words they won't bend my will I wanna go, I wanna go home I can’t crawl out the way I came in But I don’t wanna play if I can’t win I wanna go, I wanna go home

Better Off 03:33
There is no home for you here You’re better off leaving Just some dusty bones and an ancient wound That won’t stop bleeding Love, you’re better off leaving Go on and pack your things You’re better off leaving Don’t wait too long or you’ll lose yourself in the scenery And how easily we fall into Someone else’s dream of the world Love, you’re better off leaving These lies can’t hold you very long You’re better off leaving And what was warm at night grows cold when they morning comes So board the windows and the doors Let the grass grow tall over the path that leads away, away Love, you’re better off leaving

Pink House 03:49
There was a big pink house The streets were wide, the trees were tall The light was mottled on the shady streets as we rode along And there was nothing holding us down There was nothing holding us down The days were long the sky was blue We played outside until the sun sank low and the shadows grew And there was nothing holding us down There was nothing holding us down We drifted weightless in the sea The night wrapped us in it’s arms And carried us away And we could fly There was a big pink house The streets were wide, the trees were tall The light was mottled on the shady streets as we rode along And there was nothing holding us down There was nothing holding us down There was nothing holding us There was nothing holding us…
