LYRICS


[expand title="Endings and Beginnings" trigclass="noarrow" rel="lyrics-highlander"]

Poets priests and philosophers 
Prayers posers ponderers 
Wondering about when our time runs out


White light, dark night, endless abyss 
Angel choir, hell fire, virgin’s kiss 
Be real good right now cause you get another go around


Endings beginnings To ashes in the wind From pure and innocent Endings beginnings They make us whole But the beauty unfolds In between the endings and beginnings


Heaven’s way, seven days, let there be’s 
 Talking snake, tree of life, Adam, Eve 
A bite from forbidden fruit and sin is born brand new 



A spark in the dark would you believe 
That every supernova and galaxy 
The universe and you was once no bigger than a pink grapefruit 



Endings beginnings 
To ashes in the wind 
From pure and innocent 
Endings beginnings 
They make us whole 
But the beauty unfolds 
In between


How to make sense of the middle 
The mystery wrapped up in a riddle 
Or is it oh so simple 
Give a lot and take a little 
To the grave from the cradle 
To the grave from the cradle 
To the grave from the cradle... 



Endings beginnings 
To ashes in the wind 
From pure and innocent 
Endings beginnings 
They make us whole 
But the beauty unfolds 
In between, In between the endings and beginnings

[expand title="Burn My Body" trigclass="noarrow" rel="lyrics-highlander"]

Burn my body Scatter my ashes


The shape to what you leave behind 
The space that fills a loved one’s mind Everybody leaves a different kind of mark 
A beautiful scar on a beating heart


Burn my body Scatter my ashes 
On a deep blue sea 
On some high mountain passes Lose me to the wind 
Lose me to the water 
Remember me as true 
Remember me as true to you


A wise man said before he left 
I’ve lived well I have no regrets 
Let my ripples roll on and on and on and on 
That’s what love should do when we’re long gone


Burn my body Scatter my ashes 
On a deep blue sea 
On some high mountain passes Lose me to the wind 
Lose me to the water 
Remember me as true 
Remember me as true to you


What you gonna take when you go Let me spend my love on all that I know 
My dreams lay right before my own eyes Keep me wideawake long before it’s my time then


Burn my body Scatter my ashes 
On a deep blue sea 
On some high mountain passes Lose me to the wind 
Lose me to the water 
Remember me as true 
Remember me as true to you

[expand title="Doubt" trigclass="noarrow" rel="lyrics-highlander"]

Common threads can come unraveled Even with the miles we’ve travelled 
Edges fraying colors fading 
Losing track of what we’re making


Wondering 'bout the truth to all the stories we have heard Wondering is this everything and all that we deserve


No one wins when it creeps in Winds its way finds it way into a heart Into a mind a creeping vine 
A spinning top where does it stop Where does it start 
Doubt doubt


When can’t get better comes up winners 
We can’t forget we’re all still sinners Little scandals constant battles Dripping wax from melting candles


Facing what can turn the honest heart into a liar 
Facing what can fuel the tiny spark into a fire


No one wins when it creeps in Winds its way finds it way into a heart Into a mind a creeping vine 
A spinning top where does it stop Where does it start 
Doubt doubt


Can we see it for what it is Can I see it for what it is


No one wins when it creeps in Winds its way finds it way into a heart Into a mind a creeping vine 
A spinning top where does it stop Where does it start 
Doubt doubt

[expand title="Mountains and Me" trigclass="noarrow" rel="lyrics-highlander"]

Everywhere I’d go 
Was one there in the road


I’d try to find some way around 
But there was never level ground


Rising out of nowhere 
Far as I can see 
Sometimes I feel 
The whole world is Mountains and me


I’ve been all alone 
Been piling up the stones


I build 'em out of fear 
Wishin’ that they’d disappear


Rising out of nowhere 
Far as I can see 
Sometimes I feel 
The whole world is Mountains and me


I’ve leaped off and lived I’ve seen them vanish in thin air Struggled up and over what was never really there


I have cursed and suffered stumbled up so many times 
All I had to do was learn to make the mountains mine


Everywhere I go There’s one there in the road 
But that’s all right you see 'Cause mountains set me free Mountains and me Mountains and me

[expand title="The Promise" trigclass="noarrow" rel="lyrics-highlander"]

I know I know you love me 
But there are moments you don’t like me one bit You know, you know I love you But sometimes I feel the same I admit


It’s better off as something we don’t try to hide Doesn’t mean we’re living in a strange little lie 
Staring it down helps to keep it alive


It’ll make you wonder It’ll make you sure 
It’ll tempt you it’ll turn you Ask you what it’s worth 
It’ll keep you dreaming It’ll keep you still 
It’ll humble it’ll hallow you 
The promise will 
The promise will


With time with time and a lot of truth 
We’ve laid our foundation down So we work, we work each and every day And fight for every inch of common ground


Silence holds nothing but a wicked little plan Slips onto the scene an endless empty land Makes you question where it even is you stand 



It’ll make you wonder It’ll make you sure 
It’ll tempt you it’ll turn you Ask you what it’s worth 
It’ll keep you dreaming It’ll keep you still 
It’ll humble it’ll hallow you 
The promise will 
The promise will


I carry a memory in my mind 
Keep it where I still feel the pain The shame of crossing a line 
I won’t walk that way again No the promise is the road I take 



It’ll make you wonder It’ll make you sure 
It’ll tempt you it’ll turn you Ask you what it’s worth 
It’ll keep you dreaming It’ll keep you still 
It’ll humble it’ll hallow you 
The promise will 
The promise will
