Lyrics

Sometimes it feels like you will never win
Just when you’re ready to pack it all in
You tear it all down and start over again
But I’m not down for the first time
Maybe I’ll always be the one and only girl for me

I never minded the rain on my face
I knew the sun lived in some other place
I had to go I just needed the space
But I’m not down for the first time
Maybe I’ll always be the one and only girl for me

Sometimes your life isn’t going too well
Sometimes it reads like a postcard from hell
I’ve made my mistakes, I suppose you can tell
Some lives read like a postcard
And some lives read like a book
I’ll be happy if mine
Doesn’t read like a joke from an old Christmas cracker

Chords for My Way Home, transcribed by Nick Brown.

Lyrics

All it took was the time it takes
To smoke a cigarette or jam on the brakes
I nearly had it in my hands and now it’s gone
Am I complaining ’bout my luck again?
Well it seems to me I was the one
Stood moaning in the morning sun
And now it doesn’t matter much wherever I may roam
I keep feeling, feeling my way home

Now you see me, now you don’t
You say you will but I know you won’t
You nearly had me in your hands but now I’m gone
But not complaining ’bout my life again
No sirree, and what I’ve got belongs to me entirely
I look left and I look right and I cross this road alone
‘Cos I’m feeling my way
I may go up, I may go down but wherever I may roam
I keep feeling my way home

Shall I explain away my life again?
Well it seems to me it’s too far gone
To wonder where it all went wrong
I get up and I get down but I get there on my own
And I’m feeling my way
I look left and I look right and I cross this road alone
‘Cos I’m feeling my way home

Chords for The Hardest Word, transcribed by Nick Brown

Lyrics

With me in the valley, you out on the hill
I can just see you if I close my eyes
Climbing those mountains I picture you still
I see your smile just as I see the sunrise
This land is ancient, it’s built out of bones
At war with each other, the mother, the father
The sisters, the brothers, the daughters and sons
Be kind to each other, your father, your mother

On the horizon the eagles are flying
And I mean no more than a cloud in the sky
I never know if I’m laughing or crying
The hardest word is the word goodbye
Teach me the old ways, I’m ready to learn
Be kind to the sister, be kind to the brother
The writer, the singer, the poet, the clown
Be good to the man and be kind to them all
And we are ancient, built from bones
Make time for the young and make time for the old
Be kind to each other, oh that’s what I know
Be kind to the mothers, daughters and sons

The true and the great and the scared and the small
Be kind to each other, be kind to them all
Forgive our indignity and we forgive yours
As I am the mother, you are the father
Entwined in each other now and forever
The fathers of daughters, the mothers of sons
Forever and ever and ever as one
As we are the brothers, we are the sons
And we are the daughters, the mothers and brothers
Forever and ever and ever as one

Lyrics

Darling
While the firelight is low
I’m disappearing
Like the last of the snow
And really it’s better this way
We both know it’s over
And we’ll never pass this way again

Sunshine and the desert call to me
And you know moonshine
Makes you so blind you can’t see at all
But whatever you feel
It may not be real
And baby we’ll never pass this way again

I’m not the only love you’ll ever know
Look to the stars above and wish it so
Let me go

Darling
If I stay too long you’ll tire of me
‘Cause darling that’s the way we are designed to be
So hard as it is to say
We had our night and we had our day
We’ll never pass this way again<

He Never Mentioned Love

Chords for He Never Mentioned Love, transcribed by John Meranda.

Lyrics

I couldn’t hear him when he called to me
I couldn’t hear him at all you see
He was down the road away from me
How could I know his answer?
I couldn’t hear him though he shouted hard
I couldn’t hear him in my own backyard
The trains were rattling by above
We never mentioned love

He may have held my hand
When we were walking down the street
He talked about all kinds of things
But none of them were him and me
He looked into my eyes
Just as an airplane roared above
Said something about football
But he never mentioned love

I never heard him all the times he yelled
I never heard him if he tried to tell me
If my memory serves me well
He never mentioned love
I never hurt him though he says I did
I never hurt him but I die a bit
Each time he passes on the street
He never mentions love

I used to call him every night
And pray that he was home
I couldn’t bear the feeling
I might have to live my life alone
But now my phone is off the hook
The word came from above
It told me I was wasting time
If he never mentioned love

I never heard him is he said he cared
I never heard him, I kept my claws bared
I never heard the things he says he said
He never mentioned he was scared
I never heard him when he asked for love
I never heard him as the skies above
Chucked buckets on the both of us
He never mentioned love

So if I seem hardhearted
I would like the court to note
He never mentioned love to me
In anything he wrote
And if I seem coldblooded
I should like to tell the judge
In all the time I knew this man
He never spoke of love

Or if he did
I never heard him when he called to me
I never heard him at all you see
He was down the line away from me
He never mentioned LUV
I never hurt him though he says I did
I never hurt him, I just die a bit
Each time we meet upon the street
We never mention love
