Track Name: The ballad of Edie and mother darling
In a house
with all these rooms
seems to live
only two
the window speaks
with all their light
through cobwebs from
another life
put the photographs away
as we leave the garden of grey

its hard to live
in these time's
its hard to wake up
and stay alive
put my photos
in a frame
when I get old
I wont look the same
put the costumes away
as we leave the garden of grey

Home
Its what we know
Its what we miss
When we go...
Track Name: Spring 1945
In the ides of february it felt more like July
The sweat it froze above the corner of my eye
and then I thought of you
I thought of me
about the person that I used to be
and now i'm standing with a rifle in my arms
a hollow version of that boy with a guitar
turned into someone
you don't know
as you watch the angels melt into the snow
I wrote a letter in the spring of 45'
your wayward killer will be home in late July
i'm ashamed of the things i've done
traded your kisses for this blood thats on my tongue

I'm homeward bound
I missed this town

I awoke on the west coast on a port that I don't know
I must have slept for days dreaming of my home
are you waiting there to see me
cause I was left behind at the shores of Normandy
the porthole showed a picture they're no longer closed
through them I saw the woman walking up in droves
but i'll just lay here cause I don't see
I don't see no woman waiting here for me
luanne she married, no she didn't wait for me
even though she promised that our love it was the sea
and even though the sea will take you from me
her lies were vicious like those boys left on the beach

I'm homeward bound
I missed this town
