Track Name: Intra
It started slow
I saw my reflection
The Things I could have done and said
I, oh I tried.
Track Name: Cold Water
A night or two
Spent on the ocean blue
It entices you

You long for sleep
You long to see
Everything

And the cold water leaked through
It leaked through all the cracks
And the cold mist rushed in
Sent shivers down our necks
And we tried to save ourselves
There was no going back
So we held each other through
A light in the distance

There’s a light
There’s a light
There’s a light
There’s a light

And the cold water leaked through
It leaked through all the cracks
And the cold mist rushed in
Sent shivers down our necks
And we tried to save ourselves
There was no going back
So we held each other through
A light in the distance
Track Name: Rivertown
Rivertown was flooded when it went down
With men and women arm in arm
Not knowing each other long term lovers
A night of comfort
Let’s just go home

And oh, all the inns are full
With crowds of people
Let’s just go home

Let’s go backwards to go forwards slow
Bought a watch at a price that he can’t afford

There he goes off into the woods
Yes there he goes into the woods he’s so misunderstood

Let’s go backwards to go forwards slow
Skip the short cut take the long way home
Track Name: Any Which Way
You move
You watch
You wait to take a walk and then you’ll see it’s me you’ll see
You need the light to see the path that you have carved for me for me you’ll see

Backwards, forwards
Any which direction
Blank stares, your hair

You need a day or night to take a breath and then we’d see the need to breathe
You talk through déjà vu it’s right on cue for you on cue for you

Back wards, forwards
Any which direction
Blank stares, your hair

(Round and round
Tantamount
Don’t stop now)

In the moons face will be
A familiar face to see
He’s starin’ back at me
Track Name: Day Catcher
Day Catcher won’t you catch my day
Dream weaver won’t you weave a maze
For my shattered love today
My shattered love today

Day seeker
Is it just a phase?
Dream maker will it go my way
For my shattered love today
My shattered love today

Day Seeker
Day Seeker

What’s a day but a night of sleep
What’s it like wondering
Love laughs loud at the hint of denial
I’ll be over in a little while

Mr. Sandman
Bring me dream
Make him the cutest that I’d ever seen
I’ll dress up before he, before he comes over
Cause when he’s the hours appear shorter
Mr. sandman buy me some time
Acheap meal and bottle of wine
Won’t you send down your maghic line
Mr. sandman buy me some time
For my shallow love today
Track Name: Broken Hearted
I won’t be broken hearted
Today
For long

I won’t be broken hearted
Today
Today

Well it’s been a good
Well it’s been a good
It’s been a good good good good year

I won’t take your part again
Today
Today
I won’t take your part again
Today
Today

Well it’s been a good
It’s been a good
It’s been a good good good good year

Oh oh oh oh etc.
Track Name: First Snow
And now its time for me to go
Before the leaves fall and the first snow
Love has a time frame that’s lost its bolts
Broken with age like a well read book

The pages turn and the plot resides
Even the bed questions which side is right
Track Name: Don't You Know
Don’t you know Don’t you know (don’t you know)
The way (the way) you move

Don’t you know Don’t you know
Don’t you know the way you move
It drives me crazy (crazy mm)

Can’t you see can’t you see
can’t you see when your with me
That it’s no mystery
It’s no mystery that we’re both a little crazy
A little bit crazy
Crazy, ooh
Track Name: Oh She Wades
The ocean waves
And oh she wades
The ocean wake
And oh she waits

This could be one of those days
When the wind and the waves
Wash away
The layers
(the layers)
the layers
(the layers)

And the ocean waves
And oh she wades
The ocean waves
And oh she waits

Doo doo doo etc.

This could be one of those days
When the wind and the waves
Wash away
The layers
(the layers)
the layers
(the layers)

The layers
(the layers)
the layers
the layers

And the ocean waves
And oh she wades
The ocean wake
And oh she waits

Doo doo doo etc.

This could be one of those days
When the wind and the rain
Wash away
The layers
(the layers)
the layers
(the layers)

The layers
(the layers)
The layers
(the layers)

doo doo doo etc.
Track Name: Mother Nature's Born
I think I need an attorney
Get outta town leave the city
I haven’t seen the stars before I’m left alone
And the cornfields flow with the wind

Oh you are so lovely
Oh you are so pure
Thanks for the love you’ve shown me
Mother nature is born

Oh you are so lovely
Form the treetops that hang above me
To the ocean floors we can’t see
Mother nature is born

Oh ah oh oh

Oh ah oh oh

And oh it’s got a hold on me
I cannot sleep
And oh yeah it gets what it needs
All my soul

Oh ah oh ah oh oh

Etc.
Track Name: Light Switch
I turned the light switch
Just to see if you would notice it
Just to see if you could see
What there is to see?

And on that drive home
Could have sworn I lost my keys
Could have sworn I lost my knees
When they caved in

This new low
This new high
They’ll never reconcile

This new low
This new high
I do apologize
It’s gone and went awry

We crossed the border
Just to see if we could swim
Just to see the blue sea
That were now in

We watched the sunset
Just to see if it would rise
Go to sleep now close your eyes
Your hand in mine

This new low
This new high
They’ll never reconcile

This low
This new High
I do apologize
It’s gone and went awry
Track Name: Faces of Home
There’s a truck that leaves my house at eight
There’s a truck that leaves my house a little late
It goes down, down the hill to your house
He worked the night shift for a while

The faces of home
The faces of home
The faces of home
You’re not alone

Don’t ask, don’t tell, don’t show
To shy away from what he knows
To catch him at all would seem like such a feat
A modern day Houdini of the streets
The faces of home
The faces of home
The faces of home
You’re not alone

The faces of home
The place I’ve outgrown
Like water shapes a stone
You are your own
