OLD MOON

for the last time

under the moonlight
i will lay my head upon the stone
and all through the night
i will never feel alone
the old trees will comfort me
and offer peace of mind
i will not fear                                                                                                                                                                                i will not weep or whine
when i go to sleep
when i go to sleep
for the last time

i went for a long stroll
and found a forest graveyard
a warmth washed over my soul
like the tree limbs were holding my heart
i know i’ll be in good company
while the stars they gleam and shine
as the dream begins                                                                                                                                                               i’ll be with the pines
when I go to sleep
when I go to sleep
for the last time

i know i’ll be in good company
while the stars they gleam and shine
as the dream begins                                                                                                                                                               i’ll be with the pines
when I go to sleep
when I go to sleep
when i go to sleep
for the last time


beautiful soul

beautiful soul
beautiful soul
beautiful
beautiful
beautiful soul

they wonder why she’s gone
on a night the moon is full
all of her friends and all of her family
gather there to mourn

a beautiful soul
beautiful soul
beautiful
beautiful
beautiful soul

if you only knew
the love that was surrounding you
if we’d only seen
the light that might have been
still we’ll remember you
though you’ll go where you will

beautiful soul
beautiful soul
beautiful
beautiful
beautiful soul


i’d be a fool

i know it’s been a lifetime long
since this love became so strong
but lately there’s only questions
i’m merely guessing
what has gone wrong

but i ain’t letting you go
no i ain’t letting you go
though sometimes my mind
plays tricks with what i know
i’d be a fool to let you go

they all say what a gem you are
light up a room from the deepest dark
but these days
i’ve just been running astray
still trying to learn the ways of my own heart

but i ain’t letting you go
no i ain’t letting you go
though sometimes my mind
plays tricks with what i know
i’d be a fool to let you go

to let you go i’d be a fool
to let you go i’d be a fool
i’d be a fool
such a fool
i’d be a fool


just stay back

she jumped up at the crack of day
with them ideas in her head
that might be nice for some
to her it’s torturous instead
she wants them back
from her head
just stay back

seeds of poison flowers
so sinuous they grow
planted in the late night hours
little bombs they’re bound to blow
she wants them back
from her head
just stay back

you see the leaves in the morning
you watch them fall down where they will
you’re reading them ’til the evening
but you’re so lost in that forest still

and if there is some calm
before the darkness settles in
by daylight all them little bombs
will be set to ignite again
she wants them back
from her head
just stay back
just stay back
just stay back


i’ve got a secret

i’ve got a secret and i don’t know what it is
it keeps me up at night and so down in the day
won’t you please help me connect me to my past
so that this secret won’t keep getting in the way

lately i been alone
a little lost inside my skin
i feel so far away from home
even though that’s where i been
it’s just like in the movies
when he goes off to find himself
it ain’t no use in the truth he sees
he still returns as someone else

i’ve got a secret and i don’t know what it is
it keeps me up at night and so down in the day
won’t you please help me connect me to my past
so that this secret won’t keep getting in the way

it changes from day to day
sometimes the air is clear between us
but like a black cloud in the doorway
the fog is at its meanest
i’ve got to remember who I was
and cut through the mystery
but as soon as i begin to trust
i’m all alone in the misery

i’ve got a secret and i don’t know what it is
it keeps me up at night and so down in the day
won’t you please help me connect me to my past
so that this secret won’t keep getting in the way
getting in the way
getting in the way
getting in the way


before it’s too late

when you wake and don’t know who you are
a stranger in your skin
your spirit choked and gasping for air
you’re strangled from within

well now you’re on your own
and your soul might suffocate
somehow you must atone
before it’s too late
before it’s too late

if there’s deception deep down in your heart
that’s pressing on your lungs
soon the questions will be crawling up your throat
swelling up and swallowing your tongue

well now you’re on your own
and your soul might suffocate somehow you must atone
before it’s too late
before it’s too late

well now you’re on your own
and your soul might suffocate somehow you must atone
before it’s too late
before it’s too late


kiss me it’s new year’s eve

well what do you know
so many people
but it’s still so lonely at the party
but when midnight comes
if you haven’t found the one
who you can run to then run to me

i know we are brand new
but if you can believe
this year i resolve to fall in love
and you my dear
are the one i’ve been stealing glimpses of
so kiss me it’s new year’s eve

yes i know we are brand new
but if you can believe
this year i resolve to fall in love
and you my dear
are the one i’ve been stealing glimpses of
so kiss me it’s new year’s eve
yeah kiss me it’s new year’s eve


angel island

angel island
angel island
angel island
angel island

well they say it’s magic
the place where you first met
but the story can be tragic
if the memory you forget
.
so let’s sail across the bay
where the mountains they
rise from the sea
sweet guardians fly
down from the sky
and remind us what we can be
.

on angel island
angel island
angel island
angel island

so let’s sail across the bay
where the mountains they
rise from the sea
sweet guardians fly
down from the sky
and remind us what we can be

on angel island
angel island
angel island
angel island
angel island

                                                                                                                                                                               .

it will depend

                                                                                                                                                                               .
as i look up at the stars in the night
wondering what next to do
if outward shines a heavenly light
it will depend on you
on you
on you
on you
                                                                                                                                                                               .

as you lie down your head in the dark
what is it you wish to see
a little ol’ pain just slip from your heart
well it will depend on me
on me
on me
on me
.
what we decide what we hide
in these things we will trust
but if to believe is to conceive
then it will depend on us
on us
on us
on us


lost in time

we were sisters and brothers with an undying bond
each for each other and dependent on
now we’re out of breath
and close to death
and you’ve gone and left us
but we need you here
we need to tell you that we’re

lost in time
with no connection to
the gilded heart
lost in time
and there’s nothing we can do
but grow apart

toward the horizon we tended to go
and when the tide was rising together we’d row
now we’re relative strangers
a kinship in danger
adrift with no anchor
and we need you now
we need to tell you somehow

we’re lost in time
with no connection to
the exalted soul
lost in time
and there’s nothing we can do
but grow old


in your dreams

when you fall asleep
your dreams all come true
ain’t no matter now whatever was before
                                                                                                                                                                                       .
you might regret so deep
those things you didn’t do
or be sorry for who you never were

well that all falls away
when down your head you lay
real life is hardly ever what it seems
but when you close your eyes
it’s so sweet to realize
that you can be the real you in your dreams
you can be the real you in your dreams

yeah that all falls away
when down your head you lay
real life is hardly ever what it seems
but when you close your eyes
it’s so sweet to realize
that you can be the real you in your dreams
you can be the real you in your dreams
