Track Name: Inside
Watching snow melt
Soaking in warm water
Headspace is heartfelt
Pray for me to a Father

It’s colder inside than out
So let some sunshine out

Hiding outside
Open and unsheltered
Hiding my pride
Rest will make it stronger

It’s colder inside than out
So let some sunshine out
I’m older inside than out
So let your sunshine out

Watching snow melt
Soaking in warm water
Headspace is heartfelt
Pray for me to a Father

It’s colder inside than out
So let some sunshine out
I’m older inside than out
So let your sunshine out

Sunshine out
Track Name: zensong
as bright of a day as then
a feeling of mutual zen
the light that no one can ignore
rose softly from my bedroom floor

the touch of a greater thing
spellbound, completely honest
the ropes that I was up against
so gently held me in

and the band played on, the same old song tomorrow sings
and I'll love you, though an inch or so from my heart
for today, for tomorrow knows

tie me up to something
so I don't wash away
melt me into rhythm
colour me out of grey

blessed in my salvation
she has lit my eyes ablaze
lover gone with morning
and daylight come again

and the mind plays on, the same old song tomorrow sings
and I'll love you, though and inch or so from my heart
for today, for tomorrow knows

as bright of a day as then
a feeling of mutual zen
the light that no one can ignore
rose softly from my bedroom floor

and the band played on, the same old song tomorrow sings
and I'll love you, though an inch or so from my heart
for today, for tomorrow...
Track Name: The Reason Why
If not the way it’s always been
More to the up than in between
In disarray I seem obscene
Masking my individuality

If not the greatest mark in time
Perhaps a day will change your mind
What did I say that was so mean?
Nothing but truthful have I been

And you believe in you
Like I believe in I
What’s beautiful to you?
Is that the reason why?

Well it’s not the moral that you see babe
What’s right for you may not be for me, ok?
This may seem cruel and unkind
But don’t let this enrapture unwind

For is not the sweet essence of life
Having the only dream you dream of?
Send all your caution to the wind
Let rays of light come shining in

And you believe in you
Like I believe in I
What’s beautiful to you?
Is that the reason why?

At the end of a bad dream
There’s a bright new day
Everyone will survive their own little way

And you believe in you
Like I believe in I
What’s beautiful to you?
Is that the reason why?
Track Name: The Way It Is
You and your open face
Betrayed a wisdom you’d been dealt
By heaps of heartbreak
While I laid it on the way
That makes you feel like someone else
I’ll make your body sing

And you sense instability
I’m a pretty simple read
Escape at its purest
With you I could be anything
I am affected by your seed
So this might be different

I’m coming through
I’m watching everything
I’m going through
The way you are with me

Maybe this is called
Turning a corner on yourself
There’s shades of green, but then
you’re not supposed to know
How to believe in something else
There’s groundwork falling

To everyday man
Something unspoken enough
That I can’t see it
Wrapping my heart around
Something as simple as love
Yet so uncommon

I’m coming through
I’m watching everything
I’m going through
The way you are with me

And as I came around
You up and left me for yourself
What a wise decision
Something like nothing new
I made this all up anyhow
So I’ll stay hopeless

But I’m coming through
I’m watching everything
I’m going through
The way you are with me

The way you are with me
The way it is with me
Track Name: Wait In Measures
It’s a game of inches
Overreaching through
I should be more careful
Things today break not long after they’re new

Get me on a cel phone
Every waking hour
Gliding into daybreak
Simple in a simple little

And you think you’re listening
Breaking a promise you’ve kept unto yourself

Standing in traffic
To a one-shot dream
Bring your hands together
Bring about your favorite little prayer

Standing by on thin dimes
You’re stronger in your zero-payment plan
Crouched beneath a halo
Safer with one eye open

And you think you’re listening
Breaking a promise you’ve kept unto yourself
And you think you’re listening
Worth the wait in measures
Worth the wait in measures

The morning of delivery
Well I know I will sin
Locked up in the memories
Kick tires with the simple shoes I’m

And you think you’re listening
Breaking a promise you’ve kept unto yourself
And you think you’re listening
Worth the wait in measures
Worth the wait in measures
Track Name: Flow

Track Name: Everything Will Work Out Right
All you see is raining
You say you’ve missed the point of going on
We are all subject to it
Clean off my proverbial plate

Everything that we must do
I won’t pretend to know the answers
A long, long way from me to you
Hope it gets a little closer

You’ll find your place
As it’s described in dreams
You’ll tire, this I know
But oh… It seems such is life
Everything will work out right

Crazed for lack of passion
Take my tears, for I know well
It’s scary going back to weed the past
Forgiveness is a process
It’s almost like dying
To wake up in a state of simple bliss
All the truth I know’s in here
At the heart of conscience

You’ll find your place
As it’s described in dreams
You’ll tire, this I know
But oh… It seems such is life
Everything will work out right

You’ll find your faith
As it’s described in dreams
You’ll tire, this I know
But oh… It seems such is life
Everything will work out right
Track Name: 514
relax and let your mind go
go find a corner where the sun don’t shine
you can fill me in, I’m right here
curtains closed, expose your mind

innocent but powerful
poison thoughts with mental arrows
never one to make a scene
never want the ‘you’ to show

don’t let me miss
talk to my head
speak with my heart

I see you, do you see me?
you don’t know the walls you’ve built
don’t be one to go through life
closing up, denying guilt
well could it be your loveliness
is covering up a crying girl
magnetized by your carress
nothing better in this world

don’t let me miss
talk to my head
speak with my heart
Track Name: In A Perfect World
In a perfect world, would you be there?
A basketful of roses in a vase fashioned of tin
As warm wind whirled your long brown hair
A mind devoid of anything but you

Old memories fade as though not there
Perfect as the truth, mischievous as sin
As age-old ice melts in your stare
Me obsessed by everything about you

In a perfect world

By now you know my heart is there
But a pocketful of change mirrors the state of mind I’m in
Though you know dollar value ain’t never fair
Am I denied of everything but you?

In a perfect world

And as we lie, so to me
The way you’d always be
Listening eyes, ever true
The way that I see you

In a perfect world, I see you there
A basketful of roses in a vase fashioned of tin
As warm wind whirled your long brown hair
A mind devoid of anything but you
Track Name: Far Beyond Words
If the world could be an open book
My life would be a word
A nice word if you use it gently

And now you see me as I am
Going through another phrase
you’re right there reading over my shoulder

Fortune has its way
Of repaying
The love you give comes back to you
In a way that is far beyond words

If words alone could fix a broken wing
Or mend another heart
Then all this talk could make it better

You brought me back up on the road
You brought my boat on into shore
You know it’s hard to thank you near enough

Fortune has its way
Of repaying
The love you give comes back to you
In a way that is far beyond words

If the world could be an open book
My life would be a word
A nice word if you use it gently

And now you see me as I am
Going through another phrase
You’re right there reading over my shoulder

Fortune has its way
Of repaying
The love you give comes back to you
In a way that is far beyond words
Track Name: Seattle
from in here
seems like empty streets alone
could read my mind
flashing past to where I don’t know

faded
is the presence of your silence
to move with me today
out across the lights of Union Bay

breathe you
in the darkness of your eyes
that never looked away
I’d never learned to love you slow, did you?..
In Seattle lives a space I’m going through

Lean into me
the feeling deep inside of a Parasuco dream
turned into the very thing I need
will I feel
the sunshine of our secrets own me that way
if Sea-Tac lets me stay for one more day

breathe you
in the darkness of your eyes
that never looked away
high above the cobblestone I know
pieces of a man I’ve grown to you
in the shade your heart has won
the patterns of the sun
sweeping me through Pioneer Square
in Seattle there are things that just ain’t there

my endless rain, my quiet hours
the heights I know can bring me down

the window
giving quiet little shadows
to roll across the room
filling in the space where we begin
the empty bed I’m lying in
tomorrow
when you open up your eyes
I’ll betray another life
the things I get, the things I know for true
in Seattle there is not another you
