Track Name: Chilly Winds
I'm going where the chilly winds don't blow
I'm going down that long lonesome road

I'm going where the water tastes like wine
I'll see you when your troubles are like mine

I'm going where the climate suits my clothes
The pain in my heart nobody knows

I'm going where the chilly winds don't blow
I'm going down that long lonesome road
Track Name: Softer Cloth
Pass me the needle and thread my friend
I could do with mending old clothes
Strengthen with patches and stitches of twine
It's been long since I tended to the tears left behind

I've never been one for a thimble
A pricked finger tells me I'm alive
As the blood trickles slowly down my thumb
It's these old clothes I'm going to revive my son

But you'll suffer it worse than this I fear
Though you were never as torn as I
Right down the seams and threadbare till naked
Maybe they made me of softer cloth prone to holes
Maybe I'm of softer cloth

Pass me the needle and thread my love
I'll make good or if not I'll make new
This tatty old fabric is potent indeed
And I'll fashion a dress just for you out of need

But you'll suffer it worse than this I fear
Though you were never as torn as I
Right down the seams and threadbare till naked
Maybe they made me of softer cloth prone to holes
Maybe I'm of softer cloth

If only they made me of stronger cloth
I could put my needle away
Track Name: Jerusalem
Dig deep and find your soul

I know this place
I know these people
I feel their earth underneath my feet
The flame of their fire burns inside me
It's the same air that we breath
The beat of their drum rises slowly
Its a rhythm I've heard before
They're calling me over
Come and get over

Dig deep and find your soul

Theres this man there and he's dying
He's bruised by bow of burning gold
Oh but his arrow still desiring
Nothing but a life to show
Under the twinkling stars and the fingernail moon
He fights to keep his land his home
He's standing tall
He's a giant
He cries my soul is all I own

Dig deep and find your soul

And so our hero well he goes hungry
But we're eating out the palm of his hand
He tells me to dig deep
Till we have built Jerusalem
You won't even know you're born

Dig deep and find your soul
Track Name: Resurrection Day / Pretty Little Dog
You laid down your burden when you left this world of woe
And I will think with affection of your time with us below
And on your journey your soul learned how to fly
When you walk that lonesome valley into a cloudless sky

Memory lingers while the body turns to clay
That's so we will recognise you on the resurrection day
And on your journey your soul learned how to fly
When you walk that lonesome valley into a cloudless sky

Home to meet the father
Hallelujah what you've gained
Free from care or bother and free from earthly pain
And on your journey your soul learned how to fly
When you walk that lonesome valley into a cloudless sky

I thank God I'm a believer for I know how the story ends
I'll deny the great deceiver and join my family and my friends
And on your journey your soul learned how to fly
When you walk that lonesome valley into a cloudless sky
