Raise the sails batten down the hatch Set the table kill the fatted calf Sweep the galleys swab the floors Sing the songs from some forgotten war Prepare ye the way Today is today Coming home to stay Trim the trees deck the halls Fill the holes we put into the walls Turn down the lights turn down the bed Make believe we didn't say the things we said Prepare ye the way Today is today Coming home to stay Everything is change You're in and out of range Prepare ye the way Today is today Coming home to stay

Haul these bones into motion hear my weary joints implore Stuff these feet into boots these boots into something like a war This ain't my first rodeo but it just might be the last Can't keep pushing through the future when you never learned to pay for the past For a moment I'll appear before you For a moment why I never could adore you For a moment I will ride this madness sinews dust and smoke Til the bull breaks or my body's broke Oh so many years ago nothing felt so much alive And every time it threw me I was one step closer trying to survive For a moment I'll appear before you For a moment why I never could adore you For a moment I will ride this madness sinews dust and smoke Til the bull breaks or my body's broke Begging mercy from sunrise waking me from blood and years I dream in stampede Smell of dirt taste of fear But when the night falls and you're asleep in your bed I'm alone and I'm aching and half off of my head What else can I say what else can I do All I know is hold the reins and try to ride them back to you For a moment I'll appear before you For a moment why I never could adore you For a moment I will ride this madness sinews dust and smoke Til the bull breaks or my body's broke Or my body’s broke

When mountains crumble down to dust When iron ages into rust When rivers rumble to the sea I'll hold your heart inside of me And I'll be here before you fall I'll build the floor where you stand tall I'll keep horizons in my sight I'll hold your heart tonight If in your travels you might find That you have come unstuck in time And life refuses what you planned I'll hold your heart in both my hands And I'll be here before you fall I'll build the floor where you stand tall I'll keep horizons in my sight I'll hold your heart tonight I'll hold your heart with tired fingers I'll hold your heart as storm clouds linger And wash it clean and treat it kind And hope that you'll be holding mine I'm worn all through I'm fading grey Can't shake the dust of all the days But ever still there's one thing that I know I'll hold your heart until you go And I'll be here before you fall I'll build the floor where you stand tall I'll keep horizons in my sight I'll hold your heart tonight

The frozen sky fell down Covering the world up all around And we listened but we couldn't hear a sound And we listened but we couldn't hear a sound Hours whiled away Weeks in shallow graves Running out of numbered days Running out of numbered days In the snow getting old In the snow letting go Wait for you to call Or any more to fall Tried to carry it all Tried to carry it all In the snow getting old In the snow letting go Knuckles cracked and bled All the words that you said Never dream again Bury dreams instead In the snow getting old In the snow letting go And we listened but we couldn't hear a sound And we listened but we couldn't hear a sound
