Track Name: Wandering, Wondering
I’ve been wandrin, wondrin where to go/
Where and when and who and how and why//

Where can I find that sweet peace of mind?/
Where should I go/ Where is my mind/
What could I do/ What’s worth finding/
Who knows///

We’ve been hoping, howling at the moon/
Calling to tomorrow, “Please, come soon.”//

Where can I find that sweet peace of mind?/
Where should I go/ Where is my mind/
What could I do/ What’s worth finding/
Who knows///

These days were made to fade/
Before they sink into the shade/
We’ve been lost before but we’ll be found/

Holding on to moments, moods, and sounds//
We’re bound to find our way…

We’ve been wandrin’, wondrin where to go/
Where and when and who and how and why//

Where can I find that sweet peace of mind?/
Where should I go/ Where is my mind/
What could I do/ What’s worth finding/
Who knows///
Track Name: Until We Meet Again
May the road rise up to meet you/
May the wind be ever at your back//
May the sun shine warm upon your face/
And may the rain fall softly on your fields//
And until we meet again/
May the Divine hold you in the hollow of her hand//
Track Name: Mourning Glory
This all feels far too real/
The bell that tolls for us again//
A love that made us all good friends/
Takes one more to the other end//

A concave heart, she never knew/
Without disease she saw right through us//
But still she sits and holds our hand/
Reminding us of where we stand//

When all they leave is a story/
We’ll confide in mourning glory///

He wore a hat of familiar stars/
And for others’ troubles he went far//
In vacant thoughts that hold the truth/
Our dear friend’s father is saintly proof//

When all they leave is a story/
We’ll confide in mourning glory///

If death comes here before we wake/
Pray to god our souls to take//
Celebrate this life we’ve won/
And applaud the songs we’ve sung//

When all we leave is a story/
They’ll confide in mourning glory///
Track Name: Anonymous Animosity
An anonymous animosity down below the seven seas/
Waking us up and turning us all in something we can’t see//

How did we get away without words?/
We didn’t have to say anything//

Once upon a time there was a man without a plan/
He had a gun inside his closet and the fear of change at hand//
And everyone around him looked at pictures of themselves/
Fit to fit the features on the face of someone else//

How did we get away without words?/
We didn’t have to say anything//

Think for just one-second form the criminal’s perspective/
Fear is not a question when the world is quaking wreckage//

How did we get away without words?/
We didn’t have to say anything//
Track Name: Blue Sky
Oh the darkness gives way to the day/
In a magical mystical way//
I’ve never wo ndered why/
Why I loved that deep blue sky//

Maybe it’s the seagulls in the air/
Or maybe it’s a matter of where//
But for now let’s just lay here and relax/
And let the blue sky warm up our backs//

If you ever wonder, “Why?”/
Just turn your head and ask the blue sky//

I’m sitting up on top of the cliff/
Thinking and wondering if//
Are you the one that I’ve been dreaming about?/
Or are you passing by just like a cloud?//
I turn down the volume on the outside/
And let the blue sky serve as my guide//
Oh would you please stand next to me/
And open my eyes so I can see?//

If you ever wonder, “Why?”/
Just turn your head and ask the blue sky//

Oh the darkness gives way to the day/
In a magical mystical way//
I’ve never really wondered why/
Why I loved that deep blue sky//
Maybe it’s the seagulls in the sky/
Or maybe it’s just a matter of where//
But for now let’s just lay here and relax/
And let the blue sky warm up our backs//
Track Name: Melancholy Spring
Taking a train down to the coast/
I’m the one who would love to keep you close//
Maybe you’ll wake and see/
There is room for me in your great big mystery//

Minnesota spring, such a melancholy thing/
Where the sun shines slowly and I’m swimming in this old sea//

When I get there I will see/
I gotta make I gotta break I gotta shake what’s become cold to me//

California spring, such a melancholy spring/
Where the sun shines warmly and you’re swimming in that cold sea//
Track Name: Lost Thoughts
I wrote to my doubts, told them to come out/
To hear what I have to say//
I sang to my fear, to say that I’m here/
And Love is all I see//
My worries are lost, when I turn them off/
And only my mind has the key//

I smiled at my soul, as I took control/
No thought of the life that I lost///

I danced with my lover, under the covers/
Her eyes showed me grace and beauty//
I ran with the wind, felt the rain on my skin/
In her arms my whole life is at ease//
I wrote to my lies, told them, “Goodbye.”/
This time round, it’s true//

I smiled at my soul, as I took control/
No thought of the light that I lost//

I wrote to my doubts, told them to come out/
To hear what I had to say//
I sang to my fear, to say that I’m here/
And Love is all I see//
Track Name: Fear of the Unknown
Make your mind up/ Take your time up/ Let it all roll out//
You’ve got that fire in your heart/ Your love is pouring from your mouth//

These days were made to shake us/ Find us dancing in the dark//
Shine a light on what you know/ And feed the rest into the sparks//

Go until that magic’s gone/This song is never-ending//
Long before the days would fade to shake us all into the shade///
Track Name: St. Innocence
I woke slowly wondering who the/
Angel in my dreams paints pictures//
Of this moment, scenes in sunshine/
Put your hand in mine and hold on tight//

Let the storm come in/
And St Innocence begin//
To hold me in/To let the sunlight cool me down/
To let the moonshine warm you up//

I woke slowly wondering who the/
Angel in my dreams paints pictures//
Of this moment, scenes in sunshine/
Put your hand in mine and hold on tight//
Track Name: Goodbye
I don’t want to have to say goodbye…/
But I’ll try, I’ll try//

Storm clouds over my head/
I want to talk to you/
Tell me what it is on your mind//
Take the time to let it out/
Go on, let it in//
We’ll begin, to say goodbye//

I don’t want to have to say goodbye…///
But I’ll try, I’ll try//
