Track Name: Amongst the Stars
We sleep amongst the stars
And walk through every fall
Fall from grace, fall again
It’s the second time you win
Sparks of youth never die
But each message takes its time
Time is shaken by you

We walk these windy streets
In vivid supine dreams
Off into the blue and green
Sails ripping at their seams
With no need for a reply
It’s the message all this time
Time is shaken by you
Track Name: Water to Water
Down by the river walking
So you know who I am
Down by the river walking with a friend
So you know who I am

In the end
a silence rose
You know who I am

Oh tell me River Jordan
If you know who I am
You raised decendants from the stone and so
You know who I am

In the end
a silence rose
And then I knew for sure

When you peel back the layers
The only this that was real

Ancient voices are rattling through my head
Ancient voices are rattling through my head
Track Name: River
We’re going down to the river
Going down to my home
The light flows on the river
I won’t go it alone

You poured water to water
I made my only bed
The trees leaned as a warning
The Moon hung from my head

Birds are first to fly
Light is last to lie

So take me far from the river
Take me from my home
The dogs feed by the river
I won’t go it alone

The plant life fades like a frog turned inside out
The ghosts reign free on the land
My bones they shake when I’m beside my faithful man
The boats sail by like a plan

Dogs aren’t meant to fly
And I’m not meant to lie

So take me back to the river
Take me to my home
It’s dark now by the river
I’m tired
I’m home
Track Name: Do it Anyways
Smile it will begin with a grin on your )face
Give quarters or halves of the pieces you take
Indecision is what I need from you
Couldn’t do it anyway
Couldn’t do it anyway

You do what you need to do need to say
I will be here, won't give up, promise to be okay
Indecision is what I need from you
Couldn’t do it anyway
Couldn’t do it anyway

Save me from my own devices
If you could my dear
Leave me alone but be around and
to tell me lies I love, to hear

Take these great chances
and all re-romances
You will always be okay
Track Name: Sprouts
Your plants died but you
Kept mine alive
Or my leaves would have dried long ago

Boughs bent, then broken made from
Words not unspoken
But I guess it was the best way to go

You hung your hopes up on the line
But the sun couldn’t dry them out
He hid behind his clouds

My love lasted through
Songs of the past
While you danced with your feet out of time

Friends like old lovers we made
Vows to one another
While the stories in our hearts spoke in rhyme

I’m feeling homesick all the time
But my home isn’t mine, or ours.
So I’ll look for signs in sprouts.
Track Name: Path
Take a path of least resistance
Just remember that you’re feeling fine
Don't get lost on the way to the ocean
Just remember that you're doing right

Paths will cross and the roads will diverge now
Faces will change and the names will too
Don’t get lost on the way to the ocean
Just flip the record and we will too
Track Name: Wild Ride
Let your thoughts all go
Catching on a wild ride
Just like a place you've known
Catch up on a wild ride
And when things get slow
Catch up on a wild ride with me

Never want to come back
Always could be just that
Just between me and you
They said that we could make it
If we weren’t complacent
Guess that we were born to lose

So I won't hold you back
Riding on your wild ride
Or count the time that's past
Riding on your wild ride
What happens to you at last
Riding on your wild ride with me

Never want to come back
Always could be just that
Just between me and you
They said that we could make it if we weren’t complacent
Guess that we were born to lose
Track Name: Jo Jo + the Bees
Red hair blazing in the sun
Lauren, Lauren you're the one I miss
Remember when we kissed

Lavender and paler blue
Someone whispers I love you in my dreams
It's never as it seems

And there's pie at the window
In my house inside outside, inside
And I can choose between them so
I'll run outside and take honey from the bees

Beer bellies and shirts so worn
I should be but I'm not torn at all
Ready for the Fall

Now Jo Jo says you're just the same
But which one of you says my name just right
Lighting up the night

And there's two men who love me
In my house inside outside, inside
And I won't choose between them so
We'll run outside and take honey from the bees

And there's pie at the window
In my house inside outside, inside
And I can choose between them so
I'll run outside and take honey from the bees
Track Name: Only a Sunrise Away
Didn't anybody ever tell you
Exactly what you should say

When the moment finally comes
Is there a piece of self to guide you along the way

peace comes every morning
you’re only a sunrise away

Only a sunrise away
It's been a long time but I know that I will
Get over it
Get over it

As you wake a whisper calls you
Dreaming eyes re-find their every way

And suddenly the world awakes
A golden light the sounds resound they seem to say

You’re only a sunrise away
You’re only a sunrise away
Track Name: No Friends
Roll my stone
Make no friends
Gather no moss

Just want a secret
That can't be lost, in a day
No one is free
No direction we can tell
If we could read past lives
Their stories they would tell us
something real
something good

You could use a direction to send

Nothing plays like the band in your head
Talked for hours and somehow nothing it was said
And the night carries you on
Nothing ventured nothing gained
You found something you could count on
I will always feel the same

You could use a direction to send
Track Name: Alone Again
Hang on
Hold tight
Just maybe you’re gonna be alright
Give in, get paid
Live along the way you’ve always played
The time has come
To explain
Give a damn what you’re doing

Cause I’ve got a plan
To never be alone
Give me a damn
I’ve got a ways to go

Give a lot
To the Flow
No direction we could ever know
I’ve had it all
Now time to go
Say hello to all I’ve ever known
Give my love to all I’ve had to know

Cause I’ve got a plan
To never be alone
Living for my mind
I’ve got a ways to go
Track Name: Birds Follow the Southern Call
And we'll dance Summer's dance
Follow the wind at Fall
Birds follow the Southern Call
Birds follow the Southern Call

And if they take their fate
Climb the face of the sky
Birds flee from the cat's eye
Birds flee from the cat's eye

Cause if I take my fate cause I'm alive at all
Cause if I take my fate cause I'm alive at all
Birds follow the Southern Call
Birds follow the Southern Call

So no we're driving West
Never felt so alive
Unfettered and uncompromised

What has been taken from me
Can never be resold
The clock steals the world old
The clock steals the world old

Cause if I take my fate cause I'm alive at all
Cause if I take my fate cause I'm alive at all
Birds follow the Southern Call
