name of Richard Dobson who had a novel he'd never finish
That's when Johnny Rodrigues, David Olney and Steve Earle first came through
And every other
the tiredness that remains
When you think freedom can't be measured
By the scuffles on your boots hey hey hey

Now he dreams with Anna a life in the time they
the sweet magnolia tree 
The world's a fragrant memory 
And the lady of the night has finally spoken 

She cries, oh, you are a leaf that the wind blows
Find myself beside a stream of empty thought,
Like a leaf that's fallen to the ground,
And carried by the flow of water to my dreams
Woken only by
Throw his clothes to the wind
To dance a jig, in my skin
And be re-made by your cleansing again

[Chorus]
I give You myself
It's all that I have
And David dropped the giant to his knees
(Empowered by a stronger hand)
God changed the course of history
(See the power of the praying man)

Faith lives
where the bright lights're found
There ain't no way to slow you down
I'm about as helpless as a leaf in a gale 
And it looks like I've got a tiger by
F
I was led to  believe I would never fit in
             F   C         F
You've given me  my second wind 
             Dm   Am       Gm  C
of the darkness comes light like a flash
You think you can you think you can
Sometimes that is the problem
Dream little darling dream

Spinning on the wind
The leaf
lights are found
There ain't no way to slow you down
I'm about as helpless as a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.
the bright lights're found
There ain't no way to slow you down
I'm as about as helpless as a leaf in a gale
Looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

I've
the pace we're livin' takes the wind from my sails
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail

I've got a tiger by the tail, it's plain to see;
I
the pace we're living takes the wind from the sails
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail
I've got a tiger by the tail

Now every night you drag
We're words upon a window
Written there in steam
In the heat of the moment
At the birth of a dream
Vapors passing really
So I'm touched by
you that i
Got a heavy soul
Tuesdays dressed in shearling
Anchored on belief
In the sunlight on the water
Or rain upon a leaf
And I'm touched by
We're words upon a window
Written there in steam
In the heat of the moment
At the birth of a dream
Vapors passing really

So I'm touched by
as helpless as a leaf in a gale
And it looks like I've got a tiger by the tail.

I've got a tiger by the tail it's plain to see
I won't be much when you get
above the din
Of the future we see
Does it hold something for me
I'm weightless again
Just before the shadows

Fall like a leaf in the wind
Hair like strands of gold hanging past your shoulders
As the wind blows through it wild and free
Your body is the color of a leaf touched by autumn
Leaving the sadness far behind

Surrounded by anger and fear
I'm the eye of the hurricane
Like a leaf on a tree in the wind
I yearn to break free
So hold on,
Hold on to what we are,
Hold on to your heart.

Awaken by the sound
Of a screaming owl.
Chasing leafs in the wind,
Going where we've never
the same thing
Nora Lee
By the stars and clouds above
We can spend our lives in love

You're a hesitating beauty, Nora Lee
We can build a house
the same thing
Nora Lee
By the stars and clouds above
We can spend our lives in love

You're a hesitating beauty, Nora Lee
We can build a house
the forest clearing
Surrounded by wood and leaf
A Raven watched my every move
I could feel my heartbeat Thundering
Deep within my veins

I set foot
But now, the pace we're livin' takes the wind from my sails
And it looks like I've Got A Tiger By The Tail.

I've Got A Tiger By The Tail, it's plain
