Foot of the Mountain (MTV Unplugged)

Keep your clever lines
Hold your easy rhymes
Just silence everything
Silence always wins
It's a perfect alibi
There's no need to analyze
It will be alright through the longest night
Just silence everything
 
But we could live by the foot of the mountain
We could clear us a yard in the back
Build a home by the foot of the mountain
We could stay there and never come back
 
Learn from my mistake
Leave what others take
Speak when spoken to
Do what others do
Silence always wins
So silence everything
It will be alright in the morning light
Just silence everything
 
We could live by the foot of the mountain
We could clear us a yard in the back
Build a home by the foot of the mountain
We could stay there and see how it ends
We could stay there and never come back
 
We could live by the foot of the mountain
We could make us a white picket fence
Build a home by the foot of the mountain
We could stay there and see how it ends
We could stay there and see how it ends
We could stay there, see how it ends
 

Cold River

I took a ride in an automobile
Pushed my hands out against the wheel
Asked a girl if she needed a ride
She said, 'Sure, babe, but I want to drive'
 
Hey, now, wait a while
We're going down with a smile
Cold river, she took me down
Cold river, she took my pride
 
River runs so deep
It runs so deep
It runs so deep
 
Had to stop on account of the storm
Seemed like years since I'd been warm
We drove all night till the tires blew
Got in the back and did what you do
 
Hey, now, wait a while
We're going down with a smile
Cold river, she took my pride
Cold river, she took my pride
 
On a sunny day
On a sunny day
(She took my pride)
All the money you made
Did you need it, babe?
(She took my pride)
 
River runs so deep
It runs so deep
It runs so deep
 
Cold river, she took me down
Cold river, she took my pride
 
On a sunny day
On a sunny day
(She took my pride)
All the money you made
Did you need it, babe?
(She took my pride)
 
River runs so deep
It runs so deep
It runs so deep
 
Cold river
Cold river
Cold river
Cold river
 
Cold river
Cold river
 

The End of the Affair

Even as the snow is falling
Dark December nights are calling
Memories of early warning signs
Like a whisper in the mind
I put my brave face on
Robbed of the love I owned
 
It's the end of the affair
We are not who we once were
 
Hard to be open when all facts are in
Hard to write endings before we begin
 
It's the end of the affair
And it seems we no longer care
 
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Well I was fond but now I'm harder
So here we are in somber silence
With no one else but us to blame
Hard to be honest when others pretend
Hard to begin when we already know the end
 
It's the end of the affair
And it seems we no longer care
 

What there is

Empty glass
gets another round
Squeaky chair
makes another sound
 
There is a gentle breeze
playing in your hair
Come take a bow
while you're still
all there
 
It's what it is
It's what it was
And what will be here
after us
 
There is no memory
There's no recall
No recollection
at all
 
Your dark glasses
sliding down your nose
Now bring these proceedings
to a close
 
It's what there is
It's what there was
It's what will be here
after us
 
Your dark glasses
sliding down your nose
Bring these proceedings
to a close
 
You can make it all worthwhile
You can lend yourself some style
You can give them all the reasons
All the facts that you have seasoned
 
You can hear them hoot and holler
As you come across a scholar
You can set your name in lights
You can make two wrongs a right
 

Sunny Mystery

You can run through every forest
You can sail on the seven seas
You can climb the highest mountain
To try dissolve these memories
 
In case you never knew it
You can't undo it
 
You can jump off the edge of the world
Hide out in some monastery
Lose your mind in meditation
And never put your mind at ease
 
You think you're running to it
But you're wading through it;
A sunny mystery
 
Life is the dream that you wake up to
Dreams are the life from which you wake
Everybody makes the extra effort
Never knowing what to do
 
But you know the answer
Yeah, you know the score
It feels just like before
 
It's a sunny mystery
That's how it's got to be
Because no one knows for sure
The outcome of this
Sunny mystery
 

Solace

Some sign of forgiveness
Some form of release
Is all that she asks for
Is all that she needs
She waits for the day when
She feels more at ease
Some time to be careful
Some time left in peace
 
Cold stars of the future
Burn bright in the past
These moments of solace
They won't last
They don't last
 
You're wasting the moment
Biding your time
No one got ahead
Standing in line
So something is over
Before it's begun
So close you can taste it
But now it is gone
 
Cold stars of the future
Burn bright in the past
These moments of solace
They don't last
They cannot last
 
You're hoping for solace
Well, just look around
Everyone here is
Standing in line
 

Goodbye Thompson

Goodbye Thompson goodbye
I tape the sign to the door
Here we pinned all our dreams
Now the store is no more

What comes after what was
That was once strangely new
What awaits up ahead
For me and you?

Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson Goodbye
Goodbye Thompson Goodbye

Goodbye Thompson Goodbye
This space is for rent
See me head hanging low
All my energies spent

What comes after what was
That was once strangely new
What awaits up ahead
I wish I knew

Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson Goodbye
Goodbye Thompson Goodbye

What comes after what was
That was once strangely new
What awaits up ahead
For me and you

Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson
Goodbye Thompson

Driftwood

Oh come pity me, a poor mad sailor
Stranded on this love
Here I lie like driftwood, honey
Is this what I've become

I go high over, down under
At a lady's will, under you

At a lady's will
I'm drifting still
I'm drifting still

So I ask in fading innocence
And all my full rage
Will your hands still touch me
When my face has fallen in with age

I go high over, down under
At a lady's will, under you

High over, down under
At a lady's will, under you

At a lady's will
I'm drifting still
I'm drifting still

High over, down under
At a lady's will
High over, down under
At a lady's will.

Forest Fire

Goes around
Comes around
It doesn't really matter, yeah
Something wrong
A false alarm
It doesn't ring that true

Watch it flare up
Where do we begin

We are flames in the forest fire
Dancing from within
That's where we begin
And we take you far and wide
And like always
Leave a silver lining scar

The stores in town
Are closing down
And everything's in ruin, yeah
Borderline
Just turn around
Out of every ditch, a path

Watch it flare up
Time to reign it in
So let's begin

We are flames in the forest fire
Rising from within
That's where we begin
And we fuel desire
And like always
Leave a silver lining scar

No we flare up
Now we can begin
We are flames in the forest fire
Rising from within
That's where we begin
And we fuel desire
And like always
Leave a silver lining scar
Leave a silver lining scar

Early Morning

Early morning
Eight o'clock precise
I see the lonely August sun arise

Say you know you will
Move me like you do
Out in the fields
I'm waiting the whole night through

Early morning
Early morning, yeah

Ran the whole way
Down to the tracks
Through the doorway
Then a last look back

Say you know you will
Save me like you do
Out on the fields
I've waited the whole night through

Early morning
Early morning, yeah
Out in the fields

I climbed all the stairways
To find the rooftop clear
Got the shotgun lying with me here
Say you know you will
Move me like you do
Out in the fields
You know how it feels, yeah

Early morning
Early morning
Out in the fields

Early morning
Eight o'clock precise
