What Comes After the Blues . - 2005 Secretly Canadian

Dark Don't Hide It
Something held me down it made me make a promise
That I wouldn't tell if the truth forgets about us
Saying it now comes easily
After finding out how you've been using me
At least the dark don't hide it (x4)
You only said you wanted friends
For long enough to get rid of them
You found the kind you knew would only kill you
So you surrounded yourself with them
At least the dark don't hide it (x4)
Now the world was empty on the day when they made it
But heaven needed someplace to throw all the shit
Human hearts and pain should never be separate
They wouldn't tear themselves apart both trying to fit
At least the dark don't hide it (x4)
Now death is gonna hold us up in the mirror
And say we're so much alike we must be brothers
See I had a job to do but people like you
Been doing it for me to one another
At least I don't hide it (x4)

Night Shift Lullabye (Lay Down)
Lay down, lay down
No more running round
Sleep away the morning hours
Lay down, lay down
Sparrow sing, ears ring
My baby doesn't hear a thing
Work that long old night away
Lay down sleep another day
Lay down, lay down
No more running round
Sleep away the morning hours
Lay down, lay down
Every muscle, vein and bone
Answers to that endless drone
I can hear my old machine
Still running even in my dreams
Lay down, lay down
No more running round
Sleep away the morning hours
Lay down, lay down

Leave The City
Broke my heart to leave the city
I mean it broke what wasn't broken in there already
Thought of all my great reasons for leaving
Now I can't think of any
It's true it was a hard time that I've come through
It's made me thankful for the blues
Half my life spent on a highway
Half my life I didn't choose
And I have seen the North Star
Shining in the freight yard
And I knew it was a hard time that it'd come through
It's made him thankful for the blues
It broke my heart to know you waited
I had so many things to do
It's true as far as a lot of stuff
You could have had a little better luck
You just called and just hung it up
One of us has had enough
It's true as far as a lot of stuff
You could have had a little better luck
You just called and just hung it up
Baby both of us have had enough

Hard To Love A Man
It was hard to love a man like you
Goodbye was half the words you knew
While you was waiting for me not to call
I sent my love (x2)
In a life built out of only goodbye
Is there even room for you to try
While you was waiting for me not to call
I sent my love (x2)
It was hard to love a man like you
Goodbye is just what you do
In a life built out of only goodbye
is there even room for you (x2)
While you was waiting for me not to call
I sent my love (x2)

Give Something Else Away Everyday
Born to give it away (x2)
I'll take to my grave
No heart at all
I find a new kind every day (x2)
I will find in my grave
No new pain
It was easy making my self the same
It was easy making my self less
But to get better
That's the hardest thing
Born to give it away (x2)
I will take to my grave
No heart at all
It's only the moon that breaks it
Not your heart
It's only the moon that breaks it
Not your heart
Let the night in baby
Not the dark

North Star Blues
Where were the rest of my songs tonight
I only remember the North Star blues
That simple old tune on the stage each night
Marking the time that I lost you
No one should forgive me
I knew what I stood to lose
Am I better off now
just forgetting how
I came to earn the North Star blues
How can I be the only one
Whose life can't live up to the lie
How can I be the only one
Whose heart refuses to try
No one should forgive me
I knew what I stood to lose
Am I better off now
just forgetting how
I came to have the North Star blues
How can I be the only one
Whose life can't live up to the lie
How can I be the only one
Whose heart refused to try

Hammer Down
Hammer down
Heaven bound
I saw the light
On the old grey town
Hammer down
Heaven bound
Sometimes I forget how I've always been sick
And I don't have the will to keep fighting it
Hammer down
Heaven bound
Hammer down
Heaven bound
When it's been my ghost on the empty road
I think the stars are just the neon lights
Shining through the dance floor (x2)
Of heaven on a Saturday night
I saw the light (x2)
Hammer down
Heaven bound
Hammer down
Heaven bound

I Can Not Have Seen The Light
Again you're swinging low
And you hit me below the belt
Alright since it's a fair fight
I'd say it's the best that I have felt
In a long long time (x2)
Every now and then it happens again
I can't remember what comes first
Is it the hurt
Or knowing that it hurts
Is it the hurt
Or knowing that it hurts
Ever since I turned my life around
It still happens time to time
Don't know what pain was yours
Or what pain was mine
What pain was yours
And what pain was mine
Will I have to be alright all of the time
No one has to be alright all of the time
Do I have to be alright all of the time (x2)
I thought I saw the light
I saw the light
