Track Name: Swept Away
Wild horses they cry
Lift their voices up high
Like a comet shooting star
Streaks across the sky

In an instant
They are gone

Swept away

Innocence of the children
Watch them play their games
All the beauty and wonder that
Will never be the same

In an instant
They are gone

Swept away

Foolishness and stiff necked pride
Like youth's fatal ride
No matter how I cry
You are torn from my side

Wild horses they cry
Lift their voices up high
Howling waters violent forces
All their secrets confide

In an instant
They are gone

Swept away
Track Name: Count the Cost
Oh why
Don't you love me anymore
Don't you kiss me at your door
Don't you smile like before
Think I don't know the score?

As I
Surrendered myself to you
What else was I to do
Like a child I trusted you
It came out of the blue

I waded out way too deep
I fanned the fires furnace heat
I loved you but I lost
Now I'm left to count the cost

Oh yeah
Such a love you gave to me
Behold my destiny
How could I not have seen
How fickle hearts can be?

But now
The river's running dry
Teardrops sting my eyes
To you my love was blind
And gold no longer shines

I waded out way too deep
I fanned the fires furnace heat
I loved you but I lost
Now I'm left to count the cost

Through all the days and nights
That I must spend alone
Sitting on my window shelf
Watching all the cars
On Punt rd hill
Listening to the hounds of love
Track Name: Wild is the Wind
Wild is the wind that sweeps across
The landscape of my heart when tempest tossed
Never ever hold back your sweet love from sanctuary
At such a cost

Can you light the fire within without?
Like Heathcliff at the window cries for Cathy
He'll catch his death of cold but he don't care
He only wants to be with her
The only one who knows his dark and battered soul

All for the good and evil of what we see
Cast away servant disused property
Anger rage malice oh Cathy
To get her what you cannot give
Oh what wouldn't you do to make your dream come true?

And so it goes the story's told they vanish
To the gothic moors the mists the hemisphere's they're banished
Free to be together forever
In the imagination of the lovers
Who long for love as strong as death
Track Name: Settle your Debt
You're walking around like a zombie
You're standing around like a tree
You're living like a synthetic human
Vicariously

You take my word into your mouth
Like the choicest fruit
But you don't taste the sweetness
Nor yet the bitter truth

You walk around like a king
Lord of all you perceive
But what you've got's worth nothing
When you don't settle your debt with me

You climb the highest mountain
You ford the deepest sea
You put a lasso around the stars
Draw 'em close wondrously

But the gulf between us is
Unimaginable
There's not a corner of the earth
You don't defile with ya mind

You walk around like a king
Lord of all you perceive
But what you've got's worth nothing
When you don't settle your debt with me

You wear your pride like a chain
Proclaiming you are free
But ya nothin' but a pris'ner
Until ya settle your debt with me

I own the cattle on a thousand hills
The wealth in every mine
I give it up to whom I will
My sheep my shepherd divine

I already know all your thoughts
I only pay heed to mine
I wandered throughout all the earth
For those who'll humbly abide

You walk around like a king
Lord of all you perceive
But what you've got's worth nothing
When you don't settle your debt with me

You wear your pride like a chain
Proclaiming you are free
But ya nothin' but a pris'ner
Until ya settle your debt with me

The cursed die like dogs
Beneath an orphaned tree
Is it any wonder they don't ever
Settle their debt with me?

You wander aimlessly
But the river will still reach the sea
And there will be a reckoning child
When you settle your debt with me
