"Flesh and Blood" as written by and Joe Henry....
Come sit beside me
That'll do for now
The night has come and left me
Just the light that you allow

Come speak my name
Fill my head with, oh, such foolish dreams
My flesh and blood is no more real to me
Than what they seem

My love for you is burning
Like a spark on a fuse
I feel your mark upon me now
As surely as the hand that leaves a bruise

Life is for the living
And life comes hard for some
Well, the rest of us were flesh and blood
Make it hard all on our own

All I ever wanted
Was the freedom to refuse
Or something of my own to love enough
To hate to lose

The fever in my brain
Is leaving smoke behind my eyes
When the part of me that wants to change
Fights the part of me that tries

Now you see a gold light
'Cause I've turned the gold light on
Sometimes God knows
You've got to learn to shine, shine on your own

I stepped out of darkness and for a moment
I'm only living by your kiss
And just for now our flesh and blood
Is no more real to me than this

No more real to me than this
Aaa, than this
