Just Breathe

I don’t want to hurt
There’s so much in this world
To make me believe
Stay with me


Future Days

I believe
And I believe ’cause I can see
Our future days
Days of you and me


Harvest Moon

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart

Amongst the Waves
2009, Backspacer

Love ain’t love until you feel it
Up riding high amongst the waves
I can feel like I
Have a soul that has been saved


Wishlist

I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
I wish I was the verb ‘to trust’ and never let you down


You Are
2002, Riot Act

Love is a tower, of strength to me
I am the shoreline, but you’re the sea


Thin Air
2000, Binaural

It’s not in my past to presume
Love can keep on moving in both directions
How to be happy and true
Is the quest we’re taking on together


Better Man (instrumental cover by Vitamin String Quartet)
2003, The String Quartet Tribute to Pearl Jam

She lies and says she still loves him, can’t find a better man
She dreams in color, she dreams in red, can’t find a better man


Yellow Ledbetter

On a weekend I wanna wish it all away, yeah
And they called and I said that I’ll go
And I said that I’ll call out again


Throw Your Arms Around Me
2003, 2/23/03 – Perth, Australia

I will squeeze the life right out of you
I will make you laugh, I’ll make you cry
And we may never forget it

Gonna rise up
Find my direction magnetically
Gonna rise up
Throw down my ace in the hole


Without You

For every wish upon a star
That goes unanswered in the dark
There is a dream I’ve dreamt about you


Hard Sun

When I go to cross that river
She is comfort by my side
When I try to understand
She just opens up her eyes

Although we’re apart
You are a part of my heart
But tonight
You belong to me

Longing to belong
To you
