RIDE - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I don't know if I took a wrong turn
Cause the birds don't fly low like they used to
The water's rising but I'm bone dry
And I don't come for you like I used to

(Chorus A)
And I need a stranger to tell me I'm beautiful
I wanna hold onto nothing and ride
Like the cinnamon girl, like a butterfly
Just hold onto nothing
And ride

(Verse 2)
Well sometimes I'm hungry for the warmth of a body
Like a flame that could feed me or keep me alive
I done the right thing but I'm incomplete
I need something to explode inside

(Chorus B)
And I need a stranger to tell me I'm beautiful
I wanna hold onto nothing and ride
Like the cinnamon girl, like a butterfly
Just hold onto nothing
And ride
Hold onto nothing
And ride

(Break)
Under Georgia O'Keeffe skies
Over red earth plains
Where the desert raven flies
Where the truth remains

Let me ride
Yeah
Ride, ride

(Chorus C)
Cause I need a stranger to tell me I'm beautiful
I wanna hold onto nothing and ride
Like the cinnamon girl, like a butterfly
Just hold onto nothing

(Chorus D)
And I need a stranger to tell me I'm beautiful
I wanna hold onto nothing and ride
Like the cinnamon girl, like a butterfly
Hold onto nothing

(Chorus E/Denouement)
Yeah, I need a stranger to tell me I'm beautiful
I wanna hold onto nothing and nothing and nothing
Yeah, hold onto nothing
And ride
Hold onto nothing
And ride
Hold onto nothing


BEAUTIFUL STORM - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
There is a light that catches my eye in the morning
And I see it now
There aren't any saints, it dreams like it paints
It's a beautiful storm, it comes with no warning at all

(Verse 2)
I walk the line, tripping each time, and I stumble
But now that I'm half gone
The world's on the table, I'm willing and able
This beautiful storm, it comes with no warning at all

(Chorus A)
And you stand in the shadows
The room, dark and narrow
I bloom down to the marrow
It's a beautiful storm
It comes with no warning at all

(Verse 3)
Into the flesh, into the sorrow I fall now
Waves coming on
And I'm soaked and I'm torn, I'm blissed out and worn
In this beautiful storm, it comes with no warning

(Chorus B)
And you stand in the shadows
The room, dark and narrow
I bloom down to the marrow
It's a beautiful storm
It comes with no warning

(Break)
I... how will I ever tell you that I want you?
Oh, how will I ever touch you like I long to?
You just blow right through me

(Chorus B)

(Chorus A)


MAYBE TOMORROW - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
When you touch me, I feel lonely
I don't know how to let you into me
It's been coming now for a long time
It's been coming now for a long time

(Verse 2)
Is there some way to reach my Hebrides?
Burn a light on the headland, lonely seas
We've been rolling on for a long time
We've been rolling on for a long time

(Chorus A)
Oo, maybe tomorrow the sun will shine
Oo, maybe the wild rose will be all mine to give you
Oo, maybe soon

(Verse 3)
I've been out on the birdland, got no wings
I've been calling the nighthawk, hope she sings
It's been coming now for a long time
It's been coming now for a long time

(Chorus B)
Oo, maybe tomorrow the sun will shine
Oo, maybe the wild rose will be all mine to give you
Oo, maybe tomorrow the sun will shine
Oo, maybe the wild rose will be all mine to give you
Oo, maybe soon
Oo, maybe soon


OUT ON A LIMB - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I'm looking through to what this all comes down to
I'm looking for just a little more, a taste of happiness
This world keeps spinning me around, I can't see clearly
I got no way to find the ground and I've gotta move on

(Chorus A)
But what if I fall?
What if I fail?
What if I find I'm out on a limb?
And what if I fly?
What if I sail?
What if I find that it's better than ever before?

(Verse 2)
Red sky at night, you tell me there's good yet to come
I think I might find a little more, a taste of happiness
I've built these walls around myself, I can't see over
And all these lines I tell myself, so I don't have to try

(Chorus B)
Cause what if I fall?
What if I fail?
What if I find I'm out on a limb?
And what if I fly?
What if I sail?
What if I find that it's better than ever before?

(Vocal/Humming solo)

(Chorus C)
Cause what if I fall?
What if I fail?
What if I find I'm out on a limb?
And what if I fly?
What if I sail?
What if I find that it's better than ever, yeah

(Chorus D/Denouement)
What if I fall?
What if I fail?
What if I find I'm out on a limb?
And what if I fly?
What if I sail?
What if I find that it's better than ever before?
Better than ever before
Better than ever before


EVERY SOLDIER IS A MOTHER'S SON - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I keep a light in the window
Dark band on my heart
Some days are better than others
Mostly I'm falling apart

(Verse 2)
I keep his picture beside me
I see the dream in his eyes
I watch the light disappearing
Into unsettled skies

(Chorus)
You say the world will be a better place
After this war is won
You say no sacrifice too great
But every soldier is a mother's son

(Verse 3)
I know he can't take the killing
And how it messes with his soul
I know the days are unending
When you're so far from home

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

(Break)
No war that can be won
When every soldier is a mother's son
No war that can be won
When every soldier is a mother's son

(Verse 4)
I keep a light in the window
I keep a vigil inside
I say a prayer for those mothers
Across the enemy lines

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

(Denouement)
Every soldier is a mother's son
Every soldier is a mother's son


OUT IN NEW MEXICO - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
These walls around me and the days are long
I fill my lungs with a widow's song
I'm looking for a reason, feel the spirit rise
I see my life before me when I close my eyes

(Chorus)
I picture a road out in New Mexico
Red earth and mountains and sky
I picture my soul out in New Mexico
With all that space rolling by

(Verse 2)
Sometimes I feel, in a world between
Everything I touch and everything I dream
Sometimes I long for the rose to bleed
For the spark to light in the depths of me

(Chorus)

(Break)
I'm so scared of what I'll find
If I let it go, if I look inside
I'm so scared of what I feel
If I let it go, if I make it real

(Chorus)

(Denouement)
With all that earth rolling by
With all these dreams rolling by
Leaving this life behind


LOOKING FOR THE LIGHT - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I'm looking for the spirit in life
I'm looking for the beautiful
I'm looking for the sweetness
Let my heart be full

I seen the face of Buddha
I seen the face of time
I've heard the words of Jesus
But I can't find mine

(Chorus A)
I'm looking for the light
I'm looking for the light
I'm looking for the light
To light my way

(Verse 2)
I wanna hold it to me
I wanna catch the glow
I think I'm getting higher
Then I fall below

I find it in the sky sometimes
I find it in the dark sometimes
I find it in my mind sometimes
But I can't hold on

(Chorus A)

(Chorus B)
I'm looking for the light
I'm looking for the light
I'm looking for the light
To drive these doubts away


HOLLOW - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
What do you need to be high, to be here?
I catch your eye, now I'm lost in the tears
And it's hollow, but it's beautiful too
In the shadows, with the light coming through

(Chorus A)
Lay me down, lay me down
Lay me down, lay me down

(Verse 2)
What do you need to be warm, to be real?
I found a photograph of how we used to feel
And I'm drifting, but I'm riding it too
In the silence, with your voice coming through

(Chorus A)

(Chorus B)
Lay me down, lay me down
Lay me down

(Verse 3)
I wanna feel, wanna find what you are
Now that it's dark, we can see by the stars
And it's hollow, but it's beautiful too
In the shadows, with the light coming through

(Chorus A)
(Chorus B)


IF I SHOULD DIE - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
If I should die and leave you here, just disappear
I know the sun will still shine
The day I'm gone, you'll carry on and on and on
And I know the sun will still shine

(Chorus)
And if you wanna reach me
Just feel the sun in your face
And if you wanna hear me
Just sing out with your own voice

(Verse 2)
Life in each hour is delicate as a jasmine flower in my hands
Just for this time
To kiss your face, to hold you now, to feel this grace
Just for this time

(Chorus)

(Break)
Cause I will always, I will always, I will always be a part of you
And love will always, love will always, love will always, love will get you through

Yeah, I will always, I will always, I will always be a part of you
And love will always, love will always, love will always, love will get you through

(Denouement)
Oo oo-oo-oo
Oo oo-oo-oo


SAY SOMETHING - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Say something, let it fly
Darkness is here and so am I
Say something, I don't care
Just let the words spill everywhere

(Chorus A)
And I'll just lie awake and watch the stars
There is no one can take this night of ours
Except for you, so get it through to me

(Verse 2)
Say something, I believe
There's still a chance for this to breathe
Say something, make it real
And risk it all, for what you feel

(Chorus A)

(Break)
Your silence is not golden, o-oh
Your words have not been stolen, o-oh

(Verse 3)
No matter, in my head
I hear the words you never said

(Chorus B)
And I'll just lie awake and watch the stars
There is no one can take this night of ours
Except for you


FOLLOW ME IN GRACE - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Dive in to a life
Fall in to the green
Out with my breath
Bursting unseen

(Verse 2)
Cradle you rock
Hold me in the deep
We all are lost
Searching and free

(Bridge)
And to the little heart
Hardly spoken
And to the wild heart
Always fierce

(Chorus)
Life, I don't know your ways
Life, follow me in grace

(Verse 3)
Crack in my voice
Where did you go?
We've got no choice
Chariot, swing low

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

(Denouement)
Life, I don't know your ways
I will make mistakes
So follow me in grace
So follow me in grace
So follow me in grace


ALWAYS CHRISTMAS - (discography) (tab)
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
Christmas is coming
Like a road I'm running
All the lights reminding me there's something more I've got to give

Bells are ringing
In my head, I'm singing
Still I can't begin to fill the life that I was meant to live

(Bridge)
All of the places that I used to know
The million faces passing by
And you and I, we still have far to go

(Chorus)
It's always, it's always, it's always Christmas
When I feel this way
It's always, it's always, it's always Christmas
When I feel this way

(Verse 2)
The night is silent
How the stars are vibrant
And I wish the world was peaceful as it seems it is tonight

So hang the mistletoe
And kiss the one below
But pray the angels come and bring this world a little light

(Bridge)

(Chorus B)
It's always, it's always, it's always Christmas
When I feel this way
It's always, it's always, always Christmas
When I feel this way

(Instrumental Break)
O-oh
Oh

(Bridge)

(Chorus B)

(Chorus C)
It's always, it's always, always Christmas
When I feel this way
