"An Ocean In Between The Waves (Live)"

Run away, I'm a travelin' man
Been workin' every day
I watch you as you hesitate
Walkin' through the rain
I bet against the company again
They try to redefine
Everything that I know and love
I gotta know you're mine
Yeah, yeah

Feel the way that the wild wind blows through the room
Like a nail down through the heart
That just don't beat the same anymore
It might as well be gone

I'm in my finest hour
Can I be more than just a fool?
It always gets so hard to see
Right before the moon

Far away, Ma, there's a black sun risin' overhead
There's a moon through the midnight rain
How can I surround myself in time and time again?
How can I be free?
Just wanna lie in the moonlight
And see the light shine in, see you in the outline
It never gets too dark to find
Anybody at any time

I'm on a darkened hillside
And there's a haze in between the trees
And I can barely reach you
You're like an ocean in between the waves

I've been waitin', waitin'
Stallin', stallin'
I wanna rise
On a road
Just let me rise up against the waves

I've been waitin'
Got me leaning up against
All alone on the wrong side
But you can't go back again
We've got to rise if it gets to here
