Track Name: Levity
i feel rich without any money
cause a billionaire couldn't pay for the love of my hunny
all i need is you
and a little fresh air and maybe two lawn chairs when it's sunny
i can see that life's a little funny
watching people in the news and the love that they lose over money
when things come down on me
a billion dollars or two can't compare to the things that you do

*cause your levity is like gravity in love
my heart rises above and it's ok
and since galaxies and nebulas are dust
in you my love i'll trust that it's ok*

they say the universe is made of one thing
so that's a little bit of she and a little bit of he in you and me
some people call it god and some people call it life
if we just just call it love then isn't that enough to agree
to be here right now and keep your mind from running
stop looking around, you can't buy it in town, cause it's free
it's in the love of all your friends, your mom, your dad, your kids, your sister, your brother, your lover, it's all between one another

*cause their levity is like gravity in love
your heart rises above and it's ok
and since galaxies and nebulas are dust
with all the love you'll trust that it's ok*
Track Name: Insane
if i could have some distance, build up some walls
i could use the resistance, i wouldn't think at all
in a still standing river, so cold you can't feel
i'd cut out my liver, and allow it to heal

*i let my life go down when there ain't no one around
i lead my sights and sounds all the way into the ground
i want to see you but i’m liking the pain
i want to hear you but i must be insane*

i'd let the knife go down, stop looking for answers
it would sink to the ground, by the footprints of dancers
in this place far away, i could go insane
unaware of the day, surrounded by rain
Track Name: Walk Through The Door
*i would really love to see you walk through the door
up on the radio our song played some more
here comes the one drop, my heart it stops as you touch the floor
up on the mountain top our lovers rock is solid to the core*

you're always on my mind let me make up some time
let me tow the line, give me cliffs to climb
i think about the days when we hooked up and played
and all the simple ways you made me want to stay

every way i turn i burn i want to be with you
i'm low i'm lost and longing don't know what to do
and all my thoughts are leading to a darker hue
full of black and subtle tones of blue

so please don't let me go
cause you know i can feel you across the shore
and i and i is we, so i plant the seeds that grow the trees
that put my mind at ease, i like you next to me

i think about your style, it radiates a while
you have the kind of smile i feel despite the miles
so i reach to touch your face with your dress unlaced
i drop to find the place that makes your heart race

every way i turn you burn i want to be in you
i'm low your lost and longing, don't know what to do
and all your thoughts are leading to a deeper clue
full of love and lusting for the next move
Track Name: Karma Too
*if everything is anything and life is only what you bring then i love you, and there's karma too
we take our time to look around and find, the pretty things are underground and i love you, and there's karma too*

we were locked like a couple of lazy lions in a zoo
hiding behind bars of hazy half truths
we painted pink and blue above a shady avenue
and spun around the sun in one amazing afternoon

we step outside and suffer the same old waves of attitude
they say we're not alike enough to play love games with different hues
they whisper words that have a certain way of tainting the view
the pompous preach while we reach for the rays of silver grays and something new

what they say to you could never change my point of view
forever, i'll always be around
and there's a battle too, remember all we have to do
is never let them underground
Track Name: Enough for Two
i don't know where you're going
but i know that i'm going along
and now you know that i'm coming
and you know where i'm coming from

*cause if you don't need anybody well hunny that's ok
cause my need for you is enough for two*

so i stoke and blow
but i choke on the smoke of a dying fire
and you're cold so i hold you as the embers tire
and with all my strength
i lie in black coals as they radiate
and like ashes i fly above your trees
and fall slowly onto your leaves

it's a straighter road to stay together
when any turn can steer you wrong
and on that road there's better weather
and forever we can always be strong

and with all my strength
i lie in black coals as they radiate
and like ashes i fly above your trees
and fall slowly onto your leaves
Track Name: Tomorrow Today Is Yesterday
this here's a story about me being true and how i'm falling for you and how i don't know what i should do
and so you tell me that you're leaving today i hope it helps in some way me showing how much i want you to stay
what do you say we take this small difference of opinion and split it in half and we divide and divide it from there
and with a piece cut down as thin as a hair without even a care we let it go in the fair fair wind

*oh my dear don't you leave today
yesterday you wanted to stay
and tomorrow today is yesterday

and now i fear if you go away
tomorrow you'll change your mind
but tomorrow today is yesterday*

i'll change your mind if you just look in my eyes and see i'm lost and confused about the prospect of losing you
my eyes they dilate on a deep deep level, every part of me trembles in the presence of benevolent you
a flicker of light that strikes a flame in my eye as i get hypnotized by mixed signs and wiles from you
and in my brain you're like a faction of rebels that control all the levels from my bass to my treble, it's you

oh when i'm without you babe
i get tangled up in time and space
a camera clicks and i'm stuck in a place without you

no i can't be without you babe
tomorrow today and yesterday
fade away to every lonely day without you
Track Name: Let It Go
fool me once, shame on you, and i was loving true
fool me twice, shame on me, and it was plain to see
you gave me your heart only to break my own
i'm gonna set it down, and let it go

*i'm gonna set it down and let you go
two times you fooled around so i gotta roll
i don't mean to let you down but you gotta know
i'm gonna set it down and let it go*

you look so nice with the rain falling light on your see-through whites
all through the night we made the stars burn bright but in the morning we fight
with all of my might i try to hear your plight but then i realize
your words they lie like broken butterflies, my heart knows right
love should run true as a river goes
it bends and falls but never changes flow

i go through the door and i don't look back
my thoughts move forward and i hold my track
i take it all in and it's a beautiful day
i only think of you in the crooked way
you gave me your heart only to break my own
so i'm gonna set it down and let it go
Track Name: Still Life
knife it seems gonna lift away, wounded
in my head a crazy way
i'm on my feet just another day, wounded
tonight i dream about a different way

*i don't want to go away
i don't want to leave today
the man and the woman and the one named moon
i don't know how to make nothing stay

i don't want to go away
i don't want to leave today
the man and the woman and the one named moon
don't know how to make nothing stay
don't know how to make nothing go away*

close to home but i'm on my knees
i never let the sun know where i'm gonna be
what i say and what i see
doesn't really matter when i am not free
far from 'line with a hand in the ground
i want to see the moon just once stay around
still life can never be found
Track Name: Morning Light
take three drinks and two more pills
and you hope that no one can see you
fill your blood with fearlessness
but you know the mess that you're into

*take my hand, i'll twirl you around
in the mist of the morning light
i'll hold you tight while you're sinking
when it all comes down on you
i'll lift you up and help you through*

go deep down to the wanting sounds
and your thoughts that twist you to using
this time around may you hold your ground
and find the tickle amusing

*take my hand, i'll twirl you around
in the mist of the morning light
i'll hold you tight while you're thinking
that it all comes down on you
i'll lift you up and help you through*
Track Name: Slip On By
i read a story just the other day an ancient play
in it people never die
every moment they just let it slip away
love it lingers like a sigh

*you and i my dear
every time you’re near
i won’t let it slip on by

as we walk the night
in your eye a light
no i won’t let it slip on by*

i watch you lie there as the moonlight trickles through the window pane
casting particles of light
from the sun they hit the moon and then caress your face
and time it bends so i can fight

see the speed of light is fixed but time can change so that’s my game
i hold the moment with all my might
enraptured by your vision i embrace the light it grows to flames
time i cut down with a knife

you awake in the moonlight and suddenly i drop my gaze
you ask if everything’s alright
you smile and slip on clothes, take my hand and lead the way
to go and walk this perfect night
Track Name: Gentle And Sideways
gentle and sideways i turn down my words
cause you were coming my way and it cut me in thirds
and i think most likely you got what i inferred
with the snow falling lightly everything can be heard

*it was childish and mean but i had to see
while the crystals melted off your warm red face
that you were still you, you were still you…*

gentle and sideways you walked away
i said it's my way of playing a game
then you said oh why play when something remains
and i said that's why babe cause i feel the same

gentle and sideways competition ensued
it ended at my place and we discussed all the rules
i started to unlace and unravel my cool
i showed you how i paid from acting a fool

not long ago we found it absurd playing with words
not long ago the snow didn’t fall but melted and stalled
and for all we know it was there all a long empty but strong
and for all we know it can't bend or break and is there when we wake
Track Name: Halfway Around the World
the shadows on your skin resemble orchids in the moonlight
the world begins to spin and we chase it through the night

you were underdressed, i was overconfident
and we moved, oh did we move

halfway around the world, the mekong it swirls
under our feet, and out on the street

*your gods are made of stone
but you gave us a home
of flesh and bone

we bombed and stole your throne
but you gave us a home
and we were all alone
but you gave us a home*

everything you need to know, children teach tell and show
we traded stories of our home, fast food, cars and radio

they're over impressed, we are under confident
but they're moved, oh are they moved

halfway around the world, the mekong it swirls
away from the street, and out to the sea

now the distance that we traveled seems nothing more than a moments' fling
people's problems everywhere come down to a very simple thing

we're all under impressed and far too overconfident
to be moved, we need to be moved

everywhere around the world, rivers they swirl
and the people they feed still give when they need
