Track Name: Your Train of Thought, through Tunnels
Why don't we keep our profiles low,
hide behind the bar in the cool dark hall
far away from the mad dog's company
or anyone we know, why don't we keep our profiles low
Track Name: Phonebooth
Phonebooth

Phonebooth is a perfect place to warm her voice

Rain falls gives her privacy, it gives her privacy
Drying off, she was almost caught, she shook it off
Clarity, though she cannot see across the street,
her family, across the street, her family

and friends and lovers in between
close now, closer than ever, she leans,
only the moon shines through the glass
her carried tune let out at last...
Track Name: Away From Home
Tonight is an island we can rest on
Out of sight, we can strip down on the south shore
Track Name: Figure it Out
I haven’t placed you yet
The stars are easier to name
and the deserts, the same

and in your wondering, you’ll be noticed by some
but you are oblivious to them, since there’s something
closer to your heart

You don’t care, since you’ve been busy
Figuring it out, and the mark that sticks
you’re running out of time now
your life speeds up
opens like a ripe fruit

Each piece of it holding delight, soft light

Just take a closer look
these walls have talked and shook
I haven’t placed you
the long way ‘round is best
there’s no contest

I’ve watched you circle here, since you’ve been busy
Figuring it out….
Track Name: Sweet Georgia Blue
I’ll refine my love for you while I dream
On the water, cross the border unseen
The white elephant sleeps soundly, he breathes heavily
He’ll refine his love for me while he dreams
Make a wish although I don’t know if I’ve caught
the dandelion puff, my hand held shut.
Foam collects around the pond, and now it’s quiet.

Yesterday…

Moon is full and Four O’Clocks are coming out
Write it down on paper, try to work it out
What would incite a riot
in broad daylight?
Foam collects around the pond, and now it’s quiet.

Yesterday…

He trampled over everything but me
Now the unruly mob has gone to sea
We can add and subtract.
Oh, he trampled over everything but me

Yesterday…

A little Tiffany Blue will do.
One colour at a time will do us fine.
Track Name: Messy Love
I don’t need such neat disasters.

Messy love is what I’m after.

No more room left on the shelf for discoveries.

Woooh, woooh
won’t let them tuck me in
into bed, won’t let them tuck me in.

I won’t make my bed and lie in it.

I’d rather sleep on a lily pad
I’d rather sleep on pine needles
I’d rather sleep on a lily pad
I’d rather sleep in a stable.
Track Name: Hero & Leander
Everyone thinks I’m an early riser
but they don’t know I never sleep.
When it gets dark I swim to you
and I’ll come back before it’s light
I’ll fight, I’ll fight, I’ll fight.

Don’t let any nets fish me out of doing this
All day did I coast on the name I love the most
I’ll swim through the waves
lighting up the dark, your face
Any pain you will erase
My breath I’ll bate

Don’t let any nets fish me out of doing this
All night did I coast on the name I love the most
When I land
then I can call you mine
you’re mine, mine!

Waves wage war against each other
and I’m caught in between

Waves wage war against each other
and I can’t tell north from south

So keep your light on
My only guide, past dolphins, sharks, and whales

So leave your light on
It’s like a bell, I lasso my hopes to it and swim

Can someone win and someone lose
so the way is clear for me to get through to you?

Only a little further to go…

I was ready to say goodbye
until I spotted your light
Now that I’m here, let the storm rage on
I’m putting my foot down, my foot down

We’ll follow a flashlight up to a cave
We’re living lies, we misbehave
Our families would hate this
We’ll keep it a secret, a secret

Your voice is sweet and low
The loud ocean roars below
The heat wave doesn’t phase us
We’re sweating the big stuff, the big stuff

Well, I was ready to say goodbye
The bee buzzes deeper into the night
Track Name: Kalimba Mountain Song
I open my eyes in intervals
out of the flatlands, my wheels roll

and the sun blinks in slow motion...
day and night pass in slow motion...

I open my eyes in intervals,
soon I will be there, a home that’s been prepared

and the sun blinks in slow motion...
day and night pass in slow motion...

The driver knows every turn of the road
the highs and lows, he knows better than
the lines in his palms, I drink my wine
I can hardly believe, oh, when the mountains creep up.

Mountain range, a higher range, a wider range, a deeper range…
And the sun blinks in slow motion….
Day and night pass in slow motion
Track Name: Romance at Sala Rossa
You watch the lights go down
500 dancers wait
and then the curtains part
and I am downstage

I let my spindle unwind
the thread unraveling
it was beyond my design
you saw it in the dark
you were the only one to see

You try to wind it up
The thread that stretches across
and you get pushed aside
in the night, many times, many times

I let my spindle unwind
the thread unraveling
it was beyond my design
you saw it in the dark
followed it down
and now we can begin a new
trend
Track Name: The Holdup
I’ve tried to catch you in my nets
but I can’t keep track of all the ones I’ve set
Now many a night, I come home in a tangle
and it’s wearing me out, it’s wearing me out

I’m up in arms, I’m up in arms
I’m up in arms, I’m up in arms

Put your hands up
Put your hands up
Put your hands up
Put your hands up

And lay them generously on my heart,
generously on my heart,
Lay them generously, generous,
Generously on my heart.

When you’re gone I go on overdrive,
driving everyone around me mad x4

I’m up in arms, I’m up in arms
I’m up in arms, I’m up in arms

Put your hands up

And lay them generously on my heart,
generously on my heart,
Lay them generously, generous,
Generously on my heart.
