Track Name: Lucy's Song
doctor comes in, it's time to give you away
just go with the plan we don't want to wait
the years will pile up, just you wait and see
then some day you'll have as many as me

come meet all the people, come see the world
there are so many things you will learn about

colors, sports, and 123s
go to school wondering who you'll meet
paint your nails, you can do your hair
and if you're a tomboy I really don't care

listen to people that come into your life
do all the things that you really like
who will you be, what will you do
and yes someone will fall in love with you

come meet all the people, come see the world
there are so many things you will learn about

reality doesn't always seem realistic
and life goes so fast you think you might have missed it
don't just rely on your friends, rely on yourself
remember I'll be here to help
remember I'll be here to help
Track Name: Solstice
oh when the leaves turn green
you and me running underneath the trees
dirt underneath our feet
this is the rite of spring

when July comes back around
grass and flowers come out of the ground
still our feet make no sounds
the hot humid air of summer bears down

when all the leaves turn red
the smell of fall on your skin, I said
your hair is too long to keep
and our feet always remained in sync

oh when the leaves turn dark
winter's here, it's come to make it's mark
the dirt that was once under our feet
is cold now, the snow competes
Track Name: Gone
the one that I need is gone
he packed and went away
I like to think I'll visit
but only someday

I always hear his voice on repeat
I miss his lonely eyes
things that meant so much to me
suddenly were lies

even when I look both ways I'm wrong
I've never been lucky but now I'm strong
yeah the truth's I miss you now that you're gone

wrapped me in your arms so tight
I didn't want to breathe
borrowed all my air away
somehow you never crushed me

you and I were both so blind
the lights were way to dark
didn't think we needed to see
past our cold hearts

even when I look both ways I'm wrong
I've never been lucky but now I'm strong
yeah the truth's I miss you now that you're gone

even when I look both ways I'm wrong
I've never been lucky but now I'm strong
yeah the truth's I miss you now that you're gone
Track Name: No Bird
Now here is peace for one who knew
The secret heart of sound.
The ear so delicate and true
Is pressed to noiseless ground.

Slow swings the breeze above her head,
The grasses whitely stir;
But in this forest of the dead
No bird awakens her.

-Theodore Roethke
Track Name: Curious Suspension
sad because I don't know
in the hallway
with the coffee
while you sleep

looking out the window
your arms wrapped around me
surround me
bury me deep

carry me off I know
there are faces
there are places
I'll never see

you say that you think I think
more than I think I do
yeah well how bout you
you deserve the credit too

the sky was white, it wasn't blue in the morning
and I saw your eyes in a different light than I was used to

so throw me down the staircase as you fall
in and out of dark rooms when you feel small
I wish it could be different after all
simple chords and simple tunes denote my faults

curious suspension for a whole night
the sounds of far away things pollute the clear light

so throw me down the staircase as you fall
in and out of dark rooms when you feel small
I wish it could be different after all
simple chords and simple tunes denote my faults

denote my faults
