It Is Quite A Warm And Tender Place

"Today, my prayer consisted in simply going to my heart and remembering all the folks I've stored there. 
It is not cold storage. 
It is quite a warm and tender place"

All My Days

Well many a night I found myself with no friends standing near
All of my days
I cried aloud, I shook my hands, what am I doing here?
All of these days
For I look around me 
And my eyes confound me 
And it's just too bright
As the days keep turning into night

Now I see clearly
It's you I'm looking for
All of my days
So I'll smile
I know I'll feel this loneliness no more
All of my days
For I look around me
And it seems you found me
And it's coming into sight
As the days keep turning into night
As the days keep turning into night
And even breathing feels alright
Yes, even breathing feels alright

Colder Weather

... At a truck stop diner just outside of Lincoln,
The night is black as the coffee he was drinkin',
And in the waitress' eyes he sees the same 'ol light shinin',
He thinks of Colorado
And the girl he left behind him ...

Oh I wanna see you again
But I'm stuck in colder weather
Maybe tomorrow will be better
Can I call you then?
Cause I'm a ramblin' man
I ain't ever gonna change
I got a gypsy soul to blame
And I was born for leavin' (born for leavin')

When I close my eyes I see you
No matter where I am
I can smell your perfume through these whispering pines
I'm with your ghost again
It's a shame about the weather
But I know soon we'll be together
And I can't wait 'til then
I can't wait 'til then
