Track Name: Won't You
That was the real, last time,
Take your hand, place it next to mine,
Won't you please stay?
I think you'll find we're all that way,

That was the real, last time,
Take your hand, place it next to mine,
Won't you please stay?
I think you'll find we're all that way.
Track Name: Ancient Grove
Across the way, a green and ancient grove,
Kept from time and men, and then..

A child broke through the wall,
She tapped into the signal,

Roots held deep underground, and limbs,
Reaching into the sky,
Without end,

An oath she made,
In stone, her words engraved,
Her grove stands to this day,
Kept safe,

Its roots held deep underground, and limbs,
Reaching into the sky,
Rising up through the air,
Without end.
Track Name: Reading Eyes
The spirit of man moves, in a way, like water,
Always seeking out the easiest path,
At the crux, a yearning to pool together in peace,
Such a humble wish so lost, so held down,

Roaming around, covered mouth and low light,
Running away, not to hide,
Just writing hands, or reading eyes,
Breathe life,

Scuttling, streaking across the surface,
Of a blue and beautiful gem,
Fast souls, each collides into me, and I into them,
Each all, strike out and merge in blazing light,
In new life, and yet no sound,

Roaming around, covered mouth and low light,
Running away, not to hide,
Just writing hands, or reading eyes,
Those reading eyes.
Track Name: Under Wing
A child to be until the end,
On your back forever,
The man is made at birth,
He doesn't learn,
You'll never learn,

To find no shade from the sun,
No cover from the rain,
You third and fragile thing,
You're Under Wing,
Under Wing,

I know I've got to be somewhere,
I know I've got to be somewhere,

Bright, ablaze, and part of this world,
Never far away, but close to me,

Don't look like much to me,
Another mouth to feed,
Well, what do you fear?
What can you do?
What do you know?

Well I know I've got to be somewhere,
I know I've got to be somewhere,

Bright, ablaze, and part of this world,
Never far away, but close to me,
Close to me, and down every street,
Every home, and yard,
It speaks to me.
Track Name: A Sure Sign
My wishes stripped,
And weighed and weighed,
White fairy lights pulse slow,
And right when I am ordered,
Just now it's time to go,

I want to be sure,
As much as one can,
That's a sure sign,

Maybe a small, enchanted room,
One free from space and time,
Where we could go,
And sit, and talk,
And the world would wait outside,

I want to be there,
As much as one can,
As much as one can.
Track Name: And Breathing
The cold winds rise,
The river, it chilled and froze,
The words flow cold,
The bed's never made far from the fire,

Now who has awoken?
And whose heart is open?

It speaks to me,
The pareidolia comes and goes,
A sway at least,
A dark, hooded string-puller at most,

But each voice, has spoken,
And my heart, is open,

And breathing,
And knowing,
This is the only way to go.
