MANTRA *
calm your wild heart my child
rest your eager mind
close your warm and thoughtful eyes
tomorrow will be kind
breathe another breath for me
take it nice and slow
in and out and in and out
on and on you go
there are only so many hours in a day
they are ours to say
i'm gonna love you, you're gonna love me, you gotta love yourself
you gotta love yourself
i'm gonna love you you're gonna love
easy lay down easy here
lay your body to the stream
wellness is upon you now
as you slip into a dream
there are only so many hours in a day
they are ours to say
i'm gonna love you, you're gonna love me, you gotta love yourself
you gotta love yourself
i'm gonna love you you're gonna love

MAGNOLIA TREES #
city lights name the sky a lampshade for the stars
summer air has made its way to spring
looks like it may be dyin’ by the yellow on her face
well she's always been the queen
under magnolia trees
under magnolia leaves
under magnolia trees
under magnolia leaves
way past all the storefronts he's out there waiting for the bus
the city bus to set him clean
watchin’ all the cars pass by seems like such a worn out race
in which you never want to be seen
under magnolia trees
under magnolia leaves
under magnolia trees
under magnolia leaves
a couple bags in his strong hands
getting tired of just standing
where the hell's the bus then? gonna make me late again
so keep the lock on the door and when you leave come back and give me more
i'm free only when i'm with you
out in the alley she opened up his skies
on even the darkest day
the cold touch of a hand on brokedown
skin
he's dyin’ for another taste
under magnolia trees
under magnolia leaves
under magnolia trees
under magnolia leaves
oh if only i could stay there inside your perfect shade
a tall glass of lemonade and a needle on the vein
for good for good for good for good
under magnolia trees
under magnolia leaves
under magnolia trees
under magnolia leaves

NEED A MOUNTAIN #
i go out, see what the world's doin’
i come back and try to remember
i got out, see what the world's doin’
and i come back again
and i wanna go back to where i was
i wanna go back to where i was
i wanna go back
see my hands they were right down in it
in the dirt and under the embers
but i got up
off of my knees there
and i walked away
and i wanna go back to where i was
i wanna go back with you
‘cause i wanna know
and i've got a feeling that once i get there
that nothing will be the same
all those lights there that keep on burning
they're under your silent name
now you've got a mountain
we all need a mountain
you've got a mountain
we all need a mountain…

SHAKE #
what's left today what's left
i am coasting now on the wind
it is shaking and we are shaking
i will dance i will dance i will dance
we are in our descent
but don't believe that the records are done
don't believe that the war will be won
the war is just starting
and i'm afraid yea i'm afraid
but i must rest
we all gotta rest
help our hearts stop from shaking in the middle of the night
make you think twice about the way you're livin’
you ain't livin’ right
so take a good deep look at yourself
try to sleep while the clouds are still shakin’
how can a voice not quake
when we're slowin’ down
how can the ground be so far away
now shake
come on let's shake
put your glass down
take my hand now
let's shake
come on let's shake
feel it all roll out
feel it all roll
what if it don't
what if i don't
tryin’ to find myself there out the tiny window
if you find me please let me know
‘cause all i see islisten
for the rhymecottonfields
and powerlines
what about China they can't see across their own goddamned streets
he can't see
no
she can't see
and i'm afraid yea i'm afraid
but i must rest
we all gotta rest
help our hearts stop from shaking in the middle of the night
make you think twice about the way you're livin’
you ain't livin’ right
so take a good deep look at yourself
try to sleep while the clouds are still shakin’
how can a voice not quake
when we're slowin’ down
how can the ground be so far away
now shake
come on let's shake
put your glass down
take my hand now
let's shake
come on let's shake
feel it all roll out
feel it all roll

DELIVER MY PEACE #
you're gonna float when you fall in
thanks to that vest that you're wearin’
but it's cold, cold in there
fish they be swimmin’ in and out your toes
starin’ up at your painted flesh
but it's cold, cold in there
i feel myself leave, and when i'm gone
lilacs on the ashes of the song
on the way to the sea forgotten Aberdeen
i read the message was
the message was
deliver my peace
lamp on the windowsill behind the curtain
not another 'round for a million days
so it's dark, dark in there
what happened to the way that we live our lives
we are patch full of pumpkins waitin’ on the knife
and it's dark, dark in there
i feel myself leave, and when i'm gone
lilacs on the ashes of the song
on the way to the sea forgotten Aberdeen
i read the message was
the message was
deliver my peace
deliver my

CHANGE MY WAYS *
washed up on the shoreline
no money or no name
hungry for the moon above
are the currents in the vein
Saturn out the window
divin’ headfirst
into the sea
gather all the stars around
fellas follow me
‘cause i am a lantern in the heavens
i'm a seagull in a gale
with wings upon the crest of waves
i am the heartbeat of a whale
i'm a curse and a blessing
hand in hand out on the town
like a drunken hallelujah
of who was lost and who was found
and i can change my ways
open up the sky
let in all the sun and rain
and i will never die
and i can change my ways
open up the sky
let in all the sun and rain
and i will never die
but who do you want to be other than who you are?
i see something inside of you burns like a wildfire
chased by the hounds you will climb to every tree
but other than being yourself
who are you gonna be?

WAY OUT HERE #
mockingbird singin’ through the winter
as it suits him as they please
so i don't know why they ever call it lonesome
won't you be so lonesome way out there
that is how the story it began there
i love my man and he sure loves me good
we go out walkin’ less than we ought to
make love under the moon less than we should
under the moon....
we want to we want to
catch up to ourselves, up to ourselves when we get home
we want to we want to
catch up to ourselves, up to ourselves when we get home
when we get
the shovel down diggin’ up diggin’ up what's underground
and then we trade it for some piece of mind
so what's to come of each new dawning
well it seems to soon to tell
hooves on the ground and rooster calling
ain't nobody lonesome way out here
harlequin he's calling on the mocker
says go on now choose a shoe that fits
but he's got a lady by his side there
ain't gonna leave him ‘til he quits
ain't gonna leave...
we want to we want to
catch up to ourselves, up to ourselves when we get home
we want to we want to
catch up to ourselves, up to ourselves when we get home
when we get
the shovel down diggin’ up diggin’ up what's underground
and then we trade it for some piece of mind

KEEPS YOU BREATHING #
oh i love where you left me
but it's so hard to be good
and know the burden our bones bare
and it breaks my heart
that we've lowered our chances
too much light out here
too much sky out here
what about the air
keeps you breathing?
what about the past
keeps you drinking?
the way that it fills you
you say the odds are against us
but let the arrow take aim
forget yourself say the right thing
don't slip (fuck) up
and in this reckless illusion
hear the castiron
touch
all the oaks and their embers
slowly letting go
what about the air
keeps you breathing?
what about the past
keeps you drinking?
the way that it fills you

EGGS FOR HONEY #
back in the 20’s
she grew up right she grew up right
back in the 40s
oh she danced through the night
i wanna dance
grow up right
in a long thin flapper dress
clickin’ and a clackin’ upon the shiny floortops
clickin’ and a clackin’ upon the shiny floortops
back in the 30’s
dust and dreary days
she is building
a home for her love to lay
i wanna love
dust up right to the sound on the radio
of the clickin’ and a clackin’ upon the shiny floortops
clickin’ and a clackin’ upon the shiny floortops
now we're trading eggs for honey
let down all your worries
in a bucket full of water
they'll float then drown
make their way on down
firstborn
child
yea he was the hardest one to bare
49 hours and not a single breath of air
i wanna grow a patient heart
like the one inside her chest
beatin’ and a thumpin’
under a mountain of days
beatin’ and a thumpin’
under a mountain of days
now we're trading eggs for honey
let down all your worries
in a bucket full of water
they'll float then drown
make their way on down

CREATURES WE ARE *
the treetops are crashin’
like waves in the sky
oh the sugar in your blood is all goin’ dry
good morning, good heart
yea we made it ok
through the storms
through the darkness
it's the prices we pay
for dancin’ with torches and scorchin’ the moon
blowin’ all of our kisses
to hot air balloons
a shelter for lovers
a nest in the eaves
a cave in the hillside
just a place to believe
in things that are simple
that simply aren't things
like raindrops on feathers of hummingbird wings
like raindrops on feathers
spendin’ all my time with you
spendin’ all my time with you
spendin’ all my time
now she's on the banjo
so i'm on the beer
it’s so easy raisin’ hell here in heaven my dear
we'll piece it together one step at a time
we're buildin’ a boat
out of guitars and rhymes
to sail up the passage to sleep in the bay
we'll be droppin’ the anchor forever someday
spendin’ all my time with you
spendin’ all my time with you
spendin’ all my time
the creatures we are
under cold little stars
no don’t give up on me

STUCK #
gather ‘round my own true friends
i've a tale to tell
‘bout the old and troubled souls
yes i knew them well
he was stuck inside a gold mine
eatin’ out of cans
he'd been prayin’ his whole life
for all the gold he could stand
he said
"if i ever get out of here
to see the light of day
i will grab my old violin
from its dusty case
and play a song for the whole world to hear
the whole world to hear"
while that lonely Otis sleeps
birds fly overhead
ducks they’re stuck in the mud below
down there in the sand
they say
"if i ever get out of here
feel the wind on my wings again
i will fly higher than mountaintops
over the heads of man
and sing a song for the whole world to hear"
but they're not
‘cause they ain’t
gettin’ young
gettin’ old
in the mud
in the gold
they're just gettin’ stuck
