It was a morning in June when I heard that tune Falling up to the beat of your heart Like a white crane sails from a startled trail Our eyes met and then landed so well Before you could speak, before you could weep I held your hand in mine Like a shell on a beach, waiting for you reach Falling up to the mountain to climb You came reassuring, mother natures procuring and there's no need for doubt in this mind. You came reassuring, mother natures procuring and there's no need for doubt in this mind And our eyes aligned like the sun through the pines In silent space, in a cup full of time In these orderly ways in this disorderly life I let go of my hand in the jar Before the great moon in the middle of June Falling up to the pull of the tide And though I've seen it before, nothing I've ever been told Can touch this feeling inside You came reassuring, mother natures procuring and there's no need for doubt in this mind. You came reassuring, mother natures procuring and there's no need for doubt in this mind And our eyes aligned like the sun through the pines In silent space, in a cup full of time In these orderly ways in this disorderly life I let go of my hand in the jar

Red Dust 04:07
Take my name out of your paper Jane I've seen something, that forever changed the game Forgive me love for all the blame I sent to thee All the fingers I pointed, really pointed back at me All this fighting, this unsettling stir I see it now, I surrender Let the dust settle, let go of the pedal, there's too much here Let these towers turn to rivers, let these instincts steer Let the dust settle , let the stormy weather ride out, disappear And when the sunlight shines, let it all come clear Take my name out of your paper Jane I've seen something, that forever changed the game Forgive me friend for all i did to thee I was pompous then and you were my enemy Let the dust settle, let go of the pedal, there's too much here Let these towers turn to rivers, let these instincts steer Let the dust settle , let the stormy weather ride out, disappear And when the sunlight shines, let it all come clear I will mend my ways, I will mend my ways I see the red dust swirling, I see the red dust swirling I see the red dust swirling on my knees

We came through Raleigh Now off to Gettysburg I heard shots in the valley So I wrote you down these words I travel in the fourth regiment My brothers by my side Our captain banned our liquor Now I'm trying to get by Mrs. Elizabeth I can still see your dark brown eyes Elizabeth this may be the last time I ride Yeah I'm nervous I can't lie And if you don't hear from me tell my mother it's alright I'm at the end of the fight And if you don't hear I'll meet you in heaven when I die My brother he's been sick He's coughing through the night He's got nine months of service Till he's home to see his wife Mrs. Elizabeth I can still see your dark brown eyes Elizabeth this may be the last time I ride Yeah I'm nervous I can't lie And if you don't hear from me tell my mother it's alright I'm at the end of the fight And if you don't hear I'll meet you in heaven when I die

The Breeze 03:19
I wake up in the morning, in this great blue state Golden fingers caress my skin Slips through the window on a silky breeze A dreamers land to plant some seeds She's my believer, healing all my doubts A lighted mirror, reflecting out Every true potential, bed rock belief An elaborate plot, to set this bird free From every element of past, every color that's attached She paints pictures blue and green and I release them to the sea All the ancient memories, just as fleeting as the breeze She paint pictures blue and green and I release them to the sea We lay in the sunset, white cotton June Her body sings and I join the tune All the sirens calling, the crows leave their trees But a peace pervades us and the dreamers dream From every element of past, every color that's attached She paints pictures blue and green and I release them to the sea All the ancient memories, just as fleeting as the breeze She paint pictures blue and green and I release them to the sea

The Crux 01:13

In dark shadows, in black dusty rooms I lay in my bed with blue sky dreams In truth I doubt, in truth I take the blame I see little in my cup, but it's flowing over the brim Come on now this can't be real, with all this heartache I feel Come on now, haven't you shown me enough I heard of a man with bottomless wealth Like a trusted old well that came up from the ground Until the day he questioned, inspected the source He went to the bottom to find it all was gone Come on now this can't be real, with all this heartache I feel Come on now, haven't you shown me enough I guess I'll get out of my way, get out of my way There's a mad man inside of my head with crooked accounts and alot to say.

Ajam nirvikalpam nirakaramekam, Nirananda mananda madvaitha poornam, Param nirgunam nirvisesham nireeham, Param brahma roopam Ganesam Bhajama. Years and years and years and years and years Seconds and then smiles and then tears Forward into birth and into life Forward into death and into light Water flow from high to low Fire burn from hot too cold A symphony running wild, in harmony Tide in tide out storm and quiet peace Earth worms to the birds to lions teeth Bear's and Owls praise the pregnant moon Snakes and flowers wait for sun at noon Water flow from high to low Fire burn from hot too cold A symphony running wild, in harmony

Little White 04:15
I came to tell you tonight That I lied I shut down I let your flowers die I let em die The colors you showed me were sparkling white They were white But me I saw the cobwebs the fault in your eyes Yet it was mine Now I agree your sympathy should be shallow as my words Now I can see how your red blood beats more than I will know I heard your silence but felt you near I fought it from every logical way but I am here Now I agree your sympathy should be shallow as my words Now I can see how your red blood beats more than I will know Oh little white I come to you I saw your flame jump into my blue blood veins And I thought of you for all these years Oh little white I confess to you I cannot rest let me get this off my chest I love you Oh little white I come to you I saw your flame jump into my blue blood veins And I thought of you for all these years Oh little white I confess to you I cannot rest let me get this off my chest I love you Forgive me I hope you understand Forgive me I hope you understand

Why would you look outside yourself when you have All of the world inside Yeah your heart is a sun and it shines as it opens Yeah your bones are the earth and they sing with mountains Why would you look outside yourself when you have All of the world inside Yeah your mind is a space that creates your horizons Why would you look outside yourself when you have All of the world inside You know you can feel it When you look inside You know you can feel it It's no surprise Why would you look outside yourself when you have All of the world inside Why would you look outside yourself when you have All of the world inside

Clear Skies 03:25
He got down on one knee eleven twelve eleven And her tears welled up and her heart jumped to heaven It was supposed to rain but there's clear skies today She was a rare gem Romanian decent He was good man gave her every compliment she deserved Yeah he treated her like a queen He said come with me my darling beauty Let's spend our lives together And I'll love you always through every doorway Beaches and sunshine cities and moonlight I will Well it couldn't have been more perfect than this There emotions whirled in bliss Like a wave built from the center of a sea In the evening they came home in shock They had spoken what they always thought It was a boundless love from the start She said come with me my darling love to be Let's spend our lives together And I'll love you always through every doorway Beaches and sunshine cities and moonlight I will When you're gone I will keep the fires warm When you're gone I'll love you always through every doorway Beaches and sunshine cities and moonlight I will Yes I'll love you always through every doorway Beaches and sunshine cities and moonlight I will He got down on one knee eleven twelve eleven And her tears welled up and her heart jumped to heaven It was supposed to rain but there's clear skies today

I had a dream that you were mine You lit the flame right over the line On my darkest day Like a balloon, under the sea I rose up from the pressure beneath So gloriously lost all of me, With it all coming off of me I had a dream that you were mine, we made love under a satin blue light, from a window of moon Just one touch, I felt you ignite The rivers crossed and black turned to white, so gloriously lost all of me with all coming off of me And when I woke up, when I woke up you were just a trace in my blood Salt from a crackling sea, charged electricity And when I woke up, when I woke up you were just a trace in my blood Salt from a crackling sea, charged electricity I had a dream that you were mine You lit the flame right over the line On my darkest day Like a balloon, under the sea I rose up from the pressure beneath So gloriously lost all of me, With it all coming off of me
