Track Name: Fields
(Am - C - F - F)

Out in the fields of war
We went looking for something more
What we found shook us down to the core
Out in the fields of war

You can't touch and walk away
It hits you each and every day
Let's take them from the air and get out of the way
Leave them lying there, no more to say

I've seen the smoke turn the sky from blue to black
Like a bruise you can cover it up, but you can't take it back
Close your eyes and let the wind be at your back
Blow you further down the rails on a one-way track

Every dog has its day
Every ocean has its waves
Every soldier has his stay
Every dead man has his grave
Take me back to where I'm from
Show me peace and give me love
Guide my hands and guard my heart from all I've done
Save a space for my brothers and me above

Out in the fields of war
We went looking for something more
Out in the fields... out in the fields...
Out in the fields of war.
Track Name: Been Thinkin'
I've been thinkin' about you
Hope you've been thinkin' about me too
Though I'm far across the world
Always thinkin' about my girl

I've been dreamin' about the past
Time just never moved so fast

I've been thinkin' about you
Hope you've been thinkin' about me too
Though I'm far across the world
Always thinkin' about my girl

(solo)

I don't need a photograph
'Cause my memory brings me back!

(solo 2)

All those memories remind me
All you sweet love's right behind me
All those memories remind me
All your sweet love's right behind me

I've been thinkin' about you
Hope you've been thinkin' about me too
Though I'm far across this great big world
I'm always thinkin' about my girl
I'm always thinkin' about my girl
Always thinkin' about you
Track Name: I Go
There by the grace of God go I...
A long way down.
Here in the face of God am I...
Lost and found.
Track Name: Hands Of Time
Sittin' down at the chapel, feeling the wind blow
Wondering where in the world all of the time goes

It's been way too long since I saw you last time
It's been way too long since I held your hand in mine

Sittin' out at the chapel, feeling the wind blow
Wondering where in the world all of our love goes

It's been way too long since I saw you last time
It's been way too long since I held your hand in mine

(solo)

It's been way too long since I saw you last time
It's been way too long since I held your hand in mine
Track Name: Nobody's Saviour
Here I am in the dark-- I'm rambling again
Just the moon in the night sky for a friend
Nobody's saviour but my own
Came here by myself and I'm leavin' alone

Came down to talk to you, you gave me the old excuse
Where your friends and your family just don't care
Have you the will to say, "I'm gonna leave today"?
When tomorrow comes knockin', will you be there?

Here I am in the dark-- I'm rambling again
Just the moon in the night sky for a friend
I'm nobody's saviour but my own
Came here by myself and I'm leavin' alone

They say that everyone loves a clown
It's just a smile upside down
But if you catch a trace of your mirrored face
All you'll see is a frown

Here I am in the dark-- I'm rambling again
Just the moon in the night sky for a friend
Nobody's saviour but my own
Came here by myself and I'm leavin' alone

(solo)

I make no promises to cure your loneliness
That's a will you'll discover deep inside
Grab on to what you've got-- and my friend that's quite a lot--
You've been running so long

Call me when you find that light!
