Track Name: Desert Sky
Desert Sky

A rush of water hurrying by
My forever wandering
My forever shifting feet
My fingers making little streams
Of little improprieties
I’ve been no service to my body
I’ve lived in my own thinking
I never filled my eyes to see

But if I would look up
I will find the desert sky
I can bend as far as the moon
How I allow this wondrous while

And all I would live for
Oh out there, my dance of lights
I will bathe in the heart of its truth
Oh the silence fills me, stills me
Inside

Guide is coming from the moonlight
It’s dancing on the water
Yeah, it’s living it up for me
Ah, unraveling all my weirdness
Ah, my peculiarities
It knows every little cry coming
Coming from my body
It’s showing me love honestly

Oh if I would look up …..
Oh the silence chills me, fills me …..

And the laughter’s roaring by
And the dance is lit inside
I’m drawn by the cool light

Oh if I would look up …..
Oh the silence chills me, fills me …..

As far as the moon
I will bend as far as the moon

Track Name: Simplify
Simplify

Burn out this sullen hour
It’s soaked in blue
You’re wanting for something more
The gifts are few

Come away, watch that you
Don’t fall too hard
Simplify when you hurt too much
And don’t hide from all that could be
Simplify your troubles
When, ah, you are down

And don’t hide from all that could be
Simplify your troubles
When, ah, you are down

Hold your mind to something good
Let good find you

Come away, watch that you
Don’t fall too hard
Simplify when you hurt too much
And don’t hide from all that could be
Simplify your troubles
When, ah, you are down

Come away, watch that you
Don’t fall too hard
Simplify your troubles
When, ah, you are down

Track Name: Arrived
Arrived

I never knew
Raw from tame
Am I here too soon
A splatter of pain
I’m locked in my room

A senseless clue
Half-way home to me
A nameless beast
Drawn out of me
Oh the truth has arrived
By way of loving you

Waited until
Wild is still
So afraid to hold
Like a newborn
I let you unfold me

A peculiar place
Every turn a feast
A mindful embrace
I ache in my release
Oh the truth has arrived
By way of loving you

A hollowed clue
Half-way home to me
A shaken beast
Drawn out of me

Oh the truth has arrived
By way of loving you

Track Name: Succumb
Succumb

Strolling down an untraveled path where a cool nature will
Come be with me
Settling my mind in a casual conversation, yeah,
Of my destiny

I’m in a smooth rhythm
And there’s some talk of life
And my worries find an alibi
I don’t have to do more than this to be alive

The more I’m into you
Ah, the more I succumb to you

Standing where my weight leaves a dent into the naked sand
To say that I’m here
I slip into your hands, and reach right into the noble land
Of life’s mysteries

I’m in a smooth rhythm
And there’s some talk of life
And my worries find an alibi
I don’t have to do more than this, yeah, to survive

The more I’m into you
Ah, the more I succumb to you

When the sun trips into its rays
When the grass grows right up to space
When the fireflies choose to live in cells
When the torrents wipe away all the bad
And send sadness to hell

The more I’m into you
Ah, the more I succumb to you
The more I’m into you
Ah, the more I succumb to you

Track Name: So Much I Still Recall
So Much I Still Recall


When my foot has been set down
And words have left my once secured mouth
The shattering air will only shame the room

Once the tears have lost their fight
My senses seeking a quiet corner
Where all the aches and pains turn inside out

So much I still recall
The wonder days and warm night falls
But now I’m tired
And I can’t breathe
I’ve done this jagged world
The good of all we had
Will never undo the bad
And now you watch me
As I watch you
How the door slams to end all

When the moment’s set and done
A state of blankness breaks the silence
These trembling walls explode to let us out

Track Name: Slide
Slide

I might as well slide
With all that's going by, To take me into

Want a break from this haze for awhile
Get me out of my mind

What to choose if all I may
Drown in the eyes that say
You need me to stay
What I need if all I may
Lie in the arms that make
Me feel loved in any way

I cry until dawn
Gives me another day, Another way, way out
I'm streaming blind
Let no one near my secret place, my nullified life

What to choose if all I may
Drown in the eyes that say
You need me to stay
What I need if all I may
Lie in the arms that make
Me feel loved in any way

Want a break from this craze for awhile
Get me out of my mind

And now the swirl of the air bears down
The cold clings to the ground
What time has for living
Will I chance it now
Oh time gives, all the changes now

What to choose if you let me
Drown in the eyes that say
You need me to stay
What I need if you let me
Lie in the arms that make
Me feel loved in any way

Track Name: Look On To You
Look On to You

The water waits in waves
Moving with the daylight
Inviting me to see

The wind plays its part in tune
Led by the wisdom moon
And I am here to muse

I am the part that’s been missing the cue
An undeniable error that I am just waking up to
As I realize what I’m given is more than I ever will use
I look on to you

A weary wind has its moans
And sweet water’s been known to drown
I’m here in the clearest of views

I love the eyes of my mother
Bathing in her stirring gaze
I wonder why I never knew

I am the part that’s been missing the cue
An undeniable error that I am just waking up to
As I realize what I’m given is more than I ever will use
I look on to you

I am the part that’s been undeniably missing the cue
An unpardonable error that I am just waking up to
When all that is out there to breathe in
To take a full part in and to give thanks to
As I realize what I’m given is more than I ever will use
I look on to you

Track Name: You Remain
You Remain

A simple light reflecting the silence in me
Endless waves reacting
I hold you in my guard indefinitely
A drifter through a journey
I close my eyes so I may learn to see

You remain one gentle energy
Whole world would say
You relay your benevolence to me
Defenseless I am made

A still body's resting in the bed it needs
Quietly unraveling
All the twists and turns courageously
A dreamer dares my senses
Nothing of the useless left to feel

You remain one gentle energy
Whole world would say
You relay your benevolence to me
Defenseless I am made

You remain my simple truth
You remain my solitude
You remain the silent one
You still remain
