Centro 01:38
Catherine 03:03
Catherine, you came to me Late at night, In my dreams A vision spared, a weeping tree A deeply held philosophy On your way, on your way On your way, go on your way A prisoner by your own voice A beauty held, a simple choice A spinning wheel, a fallen mount A humbled way by all accounts On your way, on your way On your way, go on your way
Anyway 03:45
In between Settled lines Rising up Undefined Moving out Of the space Where you stood Anyway Anyway You'll find it there I am here Every day Growing old Turning grey Going on Everywhere Steady change In the air Every day You'll find it there
Wide 02:45
I feel orange and grey Light of day hits my eyes I see distant lands Spreading fields across the sky Open wide Where were you when i walked Down the green mountainside Stead of stay and overtook Flock of birds passed by Open wide
Quiet your thoughts Let your mind go free Worry not About what they believe For in due time With the dawning day The sun will set your free Out upon your way I had let down For so many days That i could not see The goings and the ways The truth in the night The glowing in the stars The struggle in the fight Coming from afar The search for the sight The breaking of the will When i finally found The peace in the still
Hesitate 04:17
Celebrate Everywhere Understate Lqakeland air Hesitate Recognize Certain fate In your eyes It can wait If you care Concentrate With it there I have gone Several years Without love Without tears Summer heat Winter blues Changing states Darker hues It can wait If you care Concentrate With it there
I want to be an open port by the sea Open to the water and the waves that pass through me Would you be the steady star that guides and shines on me As the ocean beats upon the rocks and back to me I have fought so many wars I can't even count The weight of which passes by the pound to the ounce Red as blood and black like a darkened seaside mount Where everything is upside down the only way is out
Places 04:27
We will go to places That we have never been In our dreams the faces The ones we've never met A world then awakened A forest scene of snow A calming over taken And spread upon the old We will hide in the corners To the southern lights The hopes of our fathers A mother's wish, delight A path and stream not taken A flowing open air A waving not yet able To follow every where
Seed 03:36
Meadow north and slipping out Though the leaves are left behind Scattered through a dusted cloud Fallen earth and passed aside That's the way it falls Puddled spot you never saw Gathered where you long to need Followed nothing left at all Sewn away a planted seed That's the way it falls
Rose 06:50
Shocked by hope and nothing more I rubbed my feet against the floor And called your name out in the air The silence brought back nothing there Creaking dawn and flashing lights I had let you from my sight Crashing storms and open rains Hear about it in a day I’ll plant a rose in my garden here And watch it grow Up the stairway in the spring Wait for five until we leave Hope for love then shrug it off An absent call it left enough Chopping blades and hands that take Riding round in circled breaks Lot it holds and lot it leaves Harder on the back than knees I’ll plant a rose in my garden here And watch it grow
