Track Name: River Of Tears In Everyone
RIVER OF TEARS IN EVERYONE

there's a river of tears
in everyone
that you can't see
it's over-flowing
inside of me
there is a river of tears

there's an old summer balloon
in the winter sky
heading over town
there doesn't seem to be a soul around
there's just a river of tears

river of sadness
make your way
to my dried-out eyes
'cause in these hard times
they'll be days
when all i have to do is cry
all i have to do is cry

there's a river of tears
in every heart
in a silent flow
you try so hard not to let it show
there is a river of tears

now i'm looking for a friend
in the middle of a crowd
but i feel so crushed
just feel the river in everyone
there is a river of tears

river of sadness
make your way
to my dried-out eyes
'cause in these hard times
they'll be days
when all i have to do is cry
all i have to do is cry
is cry

everyday that goes by
river gets more wide
river gets more loud
you know one day it's going to all come out
i see a river in
i see a river in
i see a river in everyone
i see a river of tears
Track Name: Tender Mountain Eyes
TENDER MOUNTAIN EYES

i, i have fire in my soul
silver tears in my blood
fallen from an eye of gold
but i will not come to rest
'till i feel your love again
tender mountain eyes

i, i see mothers in a field
with their babies in their arms
and the sun is going down
but they do not seem afraid
they know something i don't know
tender mountain eyes

i'll never leave you alone again
without your tender mountain oh no, no
i'll never face the night again
without your tender mountain oh no

your tender as the flower in the evening light
you can't fight alone
your tender as the soldier who can't sleep at night
wondering when he's going home

i, i may journey through the night
but i will return by dawn
with the ghost stone in my hand
and the twilight will be long
and the twilight will be ours
tender mountain eyes

i'll never leave you alone again
without your tender mountain oh no, no
i'll never face the night again without your
tender mountain oh no, no
oh no, for

you, you are of a golden age
and it waits for your return
so don't turn yourself away
in the canyon of your sorrow
you will hear a golden echo

i, i have fire in my soul
silver tears in my blood
fallen from an eye of gold
but i will not come to rest
'till i feel your love again
tender mountain
tender mountain
tender mountain eyes
