Track Name: Prayer
Oh lord, there's music in me.
Oh lord, help me set it free.
Oh mama, there's lovin in me.
Oh mama, help me set it free.
Track Name: Another Trip Around the Sun
Our hearts take us places our minds can't go
and stairs that lead to nowhere fool us
and sticks and stones and names break our bones
while children spin on merry go-rounds...

Raindrops fall into their right places
Fall leaves blowin know which way to go
So why am I so afraid, afraid just to be alone
In the silence in between my thoughts?

Chorus: Another trip around the sun
was over just before it had begun.
What just happened?
Did anyone notice?

All the while, we're on a big spaceship
Too vast to notice it's not flat at all
And there are no monsters lurkin at the edges
Only monster costumes and silt...
on this air balloon, tethered to the moon
Oh, what a view!

Our lives are a tangle of stories
We find all these reasons to live
Ticking, always ticking, tickin like a time bomb
As we dance gracefully through space...

Another trip around the sun
was over just before it had begun.
What just happened?
Did anyone notice?
Track Name: Blue Nightingale
Blue Nightingale (2009)

Blue Nightingale resting on my shoulders
Its weight is makin me older
Findin the space where I can breath
Doesn't feel so easy
Doesn't feel so easy...
(Chorus chant)
Blue Nightingale calling me home
Home to where the White Buffalo roam
To go or to stay is to live or to die
And either which way there's a tear in my eye
Either way there's a tear in my eye
Blue Nightingale resting on my bones
The vultures have gone and left me alone
If singin is all that can make me alive
Well, I wanna sing til the day that I die
I wanna sing til the day that I die!
Track Name: Flying a Kite in My Underwear
Flying a Kite in my Underwear (2010)

Our love is the same, and the colors slide by
Every song I sing for you there is no try
You lead me to water and pour me my drink
Deliver my poem, dripping with wet ink
"Do or do not, be and breathe, slowly now, cuz' slow is fast,
My dear go with the flow, Time is Vertical you know..."
A bench in the weather, hair turns to feathers
Beds pushed together, for now and for never
I'm flyin' a kite in my underwear, and you're there
You're there

Now we're down the road, and the colors filled in
We redraw the lines from time to time, begin again to color in
Your way is new to me, with every turn
I sit down now and then, be still and learn
You wake me with a lullaby, the dream becomes the day
Softly on my ear, your guitar
welcomes in the Sun in waves...
I sing the harmony, my fingers on the keys
Arch my back to feel the song a little deeper
whisper to me please
I'm flyin' a kite in my underwear, and you're there
You're there
Track Name: Another Trip Around The Sun (incl. Voyage intro!)
Our hearts take us places our minds can't go

Raindrops fall into their right places
Fall leaves blowin know which way to go
So why am I so afraid, afraid just to be alone
In the silence in between my thoughts?
