Track Name: Impossible Blue
on the winter of my page
drew the lines to re-create
constellations of an age
impossible blue over where we lay

in the evening’s melting glow
through the woods we used to know
traced a path now overgrown
impossible blue mirrored far below

where I am waiting
through the static
for a signal to receive
a language I could speak
and for a moment
I am weightless
floating underneath

in the light of morning’s wreath
begins the seasons cold retreat
in the water now released
impossible blue flowing underneath

where I am waiting
through the static
for a signal to receive
a language I could speak
and for a moment
I am weightless
floating underneath
Track Name: Slow Kind Light
if we keep on running on the road we’re on
better know our way back or we’re gonna get lost
when the mirror is broken the truth is bent
from staring down into a telescope lens

air was heavy with a colder weight
frozen breath between our shoulder blades
looking for what we never knew we lost
no sense in love to collect the cost

opened the heart is realized
the deepest part is where we find

we see with our open eyes
and meet where our love’s remind
in the glow of a slow kind light

memory clouding out the time and place
words recorded in our minds engraved
love is a lesson that we learned with age
get what you give or it fades away

opened the heart is realized
the deepest part is where we find

we see with our open eyes
and meet where our love’s remind
in the glow of a slow kind light

oh we could not know what we would find
all our flags and fears and hope entwined
all dressed in white
we knew nothing about
that slow kind light

all dressed in white
we knew nothing about
that slow kind light
Track Name: Fault Lines
safe, our faults exchange
the city we built lay quiet and still for the tension to break
wait, for the walls to shake
running through all I’ve forgot to tell everyone that I love

there’s a whole lot of feeling that turns to regret
no reason to feed what hasn’t happened yet
and if the big one comes I fear it
suddenly appearing
no music and no lyric
just a canyon in my spirit

blame, am I to blame
should have known how to love you but I was as careless as fire
take, more than we’ve made
and no science explains the sum that remains of our golden age

there’s a whole lot of feeling that turns to regret
no reason to feed what hasn’t happened yet
and if the big one comes I fear it
suddenly appearing
no music and no lyric
just a canyon in my spirit


there’s a whole lot of feelings that turn to regret
no reason to feed what hasn’t happened yet
and if the big one comes I fear it
suddenly appearing
no music and no lyric
just a canyon in my spirit

and we fall
Track Name: Roses
I’ve waded through traffic, a gridlock of eyes
love was a hydrant busted open wide
our atoms were scattered linked by the light
of neon air buzzing around us like flies

it feels like the fourth of july
colors all burst in the sky
you and I fell into the indigo dreaming

with the finest of intentions
to pay for my affection
you won’t leave me roses anymore
did you hope to find redemption
in the promise of contentment
you won’t leave me roses anymore
you won’t leave me roses anymore

the way you could brag, talk american slang
in the garden we made up the words as we sang
the apple twice bitten, the serpent was right
it’s the knowing that hurts when you’ve seen the divide

it feels like the fourth of july
colors all burst in the sky
you and I fell into pages of fiction

with the finest of intentions
to pay for my affection
you won’t leave me roses anymore
did you hope to find redemption
in the promise of contentment
you won’t leave me roses anymore
you won’t leave me roses anymore
Track Name: Fury On My Mind
Oh love of mine
got a fury on my mind
heavy with the weight
of a dark cloud ready to break
flood waters will recede
rolling thunder be released
but in behind they may leave
the long dark shadow of the grief
still I’ve got a fury on my mind


Oh love of mine
got a fury on my mind
unbroken in the wake
some things can never be replaced
our faces cracked and dry
you ate the bread, I drank the wine
all those thoughts won’t be un-thunk
and those tears never enough
to quiet the fury on my mind


Oh love of mine
got a fury on my mind
the days can be unkind
no reason here to find
like metals from the mire
we are formed out of the fire
so hold that love inside your chest
and to hell with all the rest
and quiet the fury on my mind
still I’ve got a fury on my mind
I’ve got a fury on my mind
still I’ve got a fury on my mind
Track Name: Bright Ideas
in the garden is a wedding, 300 guests
night breeze blowing, with summer on its breath
silverware is polished, the tables are set
the women they are finely dressed

shoemakers and poets, lawyers doctors everyone
take their places on the lawn as the band began to strum
songs about a love that was ever on the run
standing as the bride she comes

smiling with the sun in her eyes
turning the wheel of desire

vows are made and rings are exchanged
he kissed her with a crooked mouth and true love was proclaimed
the groom tries in vain to keep his feelings contained
in the sparkle of her diamond light

smiling with the sun in his eyes
turning the wheel of desire

the universe unfolding from a spark 
and then exploding into love, what a bright idea
could a notion out there hiding 
under stars and advertising be the glue, between me and you
oh time it keeps on rolling 
over everyone who’s lonesome tonight

in the garden is a wedding, 300 guests
night breeze blowing, with summer on its breath
music making magic in the eyes of the romantics 
with a mirror ball moon spinning up above

the universe unfolding from a spark 
and then exploding into love, what a bright idea
could a notion out there hiding 
under stars and advertising be the glue, between me and you
oh time it keeps on rolling 
over everyone who’s lonesome tonight
Track Name: Maps
set out to discover
a geography of lovers
in the touch of another
the lay of the land

where we where going
the borders were open
and honey I was hoping
our compass was true

wild horizons lead us out
out across a crooked ground
it’s a wide-eyed world
it’s a wide-eyed world
and we’re drawing maps

the continents have broken
torn where the road ends
I’m looking out on oceans
between bodies of land

love ain’t an island
a place we arrived in
or a way of surviving
a difference of views

wild horizons lead us out
out across a crooked ground
it’s a wide-eyed world
it’s a wide-eyed world
we’ve drawn in maps

wild horizons lead us out
out across a crooked ground
it’s a wide-eyed world
it’s a wide-eyed world
still it’s a wide-eyed world
we’ve drawn in maps
Track Name: Kites
she calls out their names / and moves down the chain
remembers the words and / the comfort they bring
but it’s hard to have faith / with the clatter we make
filling the space
til all that remains
is all blown away

been working so hard / so tired of the heat
trying to tie up these threads / and make all the ends meet
while everyone sleeps / are angels up watching
just waiting their turn
to swoop to the earth
to swoop to the earth

she says prayers are like kites / send em up to the sky
people flying their hopes on / the thin of a line
looking for signs / the angels up waiting
for lessons to be learned
with those years to burn
with those years to burn
with those years to burn

the string it unwinds
the tension pulled tight
and soon breaks the twine
floating up high
just one little light
in a black sea of night, one little light

she says prayers are like kites
send em up to the sky
