Track Name: By June
By June

June held out her hand to me, like a token offering
As if to say there is hope yet, something you won’t regret
Like a wish for rain, upon our hearts like windowpanes
Come into our hidden halls, taste of old oblivion

Sweet disintegration
Of me and all that I believe

June held out a ring to me to burn into my memory
Words to give a rich man pause, words to give a poor man cause
To hope beyond the dying fire - embers rise and then retire
On the inside written words to last: “This too shall pass”

Sweet disintegration
Of me, and all that I believe
Sweet disintegration
Of June and me, and all that we believe

Cause we rise – only for moment
& We rise - often by the moment

Every time you build a dream do you hear hammers readying?
June may bring you to your knees but you’ll still like the scenery
Cause beneath even the best of skies, ashen glows diminished pride
It will yet glow again, when these clearing rains have left

Sweet disintegration
Of me, and all that I believe
Sweet disintegration
June and me and all that we believe

By June … replenish me
Bye June … un-damage me
Track Name: Coming of Age
Coming of Age

On this part of the circle where we lay
Each sparks, & gets carried away
As if by plan, we cannot remain
& hold tight for the coming of age

As you feel right now, each one’s in its place
And we’ll ride out from where we are today
So let out, you feel it when you came
Are you coming down, letting go, or coming of age?

Learn each part, expanding your range
& Though each heart has its better age
There’s no line that we forgot to say
& There’s nothing lost (at least in memory)

As you feel right now, each one’s in its place
And we’ll ride out from where we are today
So let out, feel it when you came
Are you coming down, letting go or coming of age?

On and on and on and on

As you feel right now, each one’s in its place
& We’ll ride out, from where we are today
Your soul’s let out, you felt it when you came
Are you coming down, letting go or coming of age

Coming of age…coming of age…coming of age
Track Name: Seamless
Seamless

And seamless we tear and reform
And seamless we change scenes and forms
I’m so tired of concealing the change
I get tired of healing, feeling shame

Until the letdown, until the letting go
I won’t tire though I feel so

And these are the reasons
That I pull the seam
Each shape is dismantled
For perfect memory

Until the letdown, until the letting go
I won’t tire though I feel so
Let down

And seamless we tear and reform
And seamless we change scenes and forms

Until the stars’ fire empty and ashen glows
Until the old eyes are yours and mine (you know)
I’d never want more than this light to stand and see
The world raking its coals and we see its embers gleam
Let down
Track Name: Sunlight Lies
Sunlight Lies


Sunlight lies
Cold with me
Somber eyes
Stunning city

Wanting spring and heat
Sunlight lies cold with me

Sunlight lies
In our city
The streets follow
& Are not leading

All the city scenes
All the things I’ve seen
Colder than I seem
Sunlight lies well for me

Sunlight lies
Told to me
Steal my gaze
To see this city

All the city scenes
All the things I’ve seen
Colder than I seem
Sunlight lies well for me
Track Name: Sedona
Sedona

Mesa, red stone on high
Paint a portrait of light
Fragment of burnished sky
And the sun

All I’ve wanted seems to lead me here
Echoes of a vanished year
Desire changes color
Under tears of sun

Over the rain
We are
Over the rain

We saw, midday sun in the sky
Dust roads, no cars in sight
Fragments of the sky
And the sun

Over the rain
We are
Over the rain

& Down from darkness we climb
Mesa, in the back of our mind
Red hills over red sky
And the sun

Over the rain
We are
Over the rain
Track Name: This May
This May

(for Ava Simone)

This May,
Sun will rise for me
And also for you my love
This May,
We will soon be three
When you reveal your face

Here we go
Down one of many roads
Become the only one
This May

This May –
Since first is feeling
Our minds are the same
& Words follow like all your own days

Here we go
Down one of many roads
Become the only one
This May
Track Name: La Belle Dame Sans Merci
La Belle Dame Sans Merci
O, what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
Alone and palely loitering?
The sedge is wither'd from the lake,
And no birds sing.

O, what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
So haggard and so woe-begone?
The squirrel's granary is full,
And the harvest's done.

I see a lily on thy brow,
With anguish moist and fever dew;
And on thy cheek a fading rose
Fast withereth too.

I met a lady in the meads
Full beautiful --- a faery's child;
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.

I made a garland for her head,
And bracelets too, and fragrant zone;
She look'd at me as she did love,
And made sweet moan.


She found me roots of relish sweet,
And honey wild, and manna dew;
And sure in language strange she said,
'I love thee true.'


And there she lulled me asleep,
And there I dream'd --- ah! woe betide! ---
The latest dream I ever dreamt
On the cold hill side.

I saw pale kings, and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
They cried --- 'La Belle Dame sans Merci
Hath thee in thrall!'


And this is why I sojourn here,
Alone and palely loitering;
Though the sedge is wither'd from the lake,
And no birds sing.

-- John Keats
Track Name: Assume
Assume

We arise in the morning of our mind
Feeling sunlight as one
We wake to find the morning of our pride
So much work to be done

I knew I
Would find you
But sometimes we resolve but wait to follow through

now
Assume I’m yours

Soon summer doors will be open –
We’ll drive the winding road to the lake
Discord loses its hold on the music
Your eyes hold the road, but often light on me

I meant to
Always find you
This time I resolve and I’ll follow through

Cause when I hear you right, catch the aspect of your eye
Track Name: Sway
Sway

Lightning outside today
Stay inside, smell the rain
Listening to Marvin Gaye
Fill the room,
Change my mood & sway

Let this rain turn to snow
Heat my tea on the stove
Fingers warm when they clasp
On the strength of what I’ve learned
From the past

I want to sway through these days with you

Wait a moment; go nowhere
Rest a moment in your the stare
So many lost
Their way
Through the maze

& I want to sway
Through these days
Track Name: Wave
Wave

Lifting my eyes -
Break a delicate smile On the waves
Lifting my mind
From the motion and rest Of the waves
I’d like to be more of the wave
Than the undertow
So I can break on the shore
And then return once more
To the sea

But I’ll be taking this light
This hour
And going….
I’ll be singing your praise
When I am reclaimed

Lifting my sight
From the movement
That will not cease

From the crest to the fall,
We rise and then we recede
Still I’d like to be more of the wave
Than the undertow
But I can’t break on the shore
Without returning once more
To the sea
