Track Name: Memory
Perilous divide
what is yours; what is mine
Call it for a price
can you curb your appetite?

Slow disaster dressed up in alibis
Look your master right in the eye

You were caught in a cloud of your own memory
and now you’re left out in the rain

Fire is in your eyes
Don’t deny, don’t deny
The truth is compromised
Tell me lies, tell me lies

Welcome home; here's another game to play
Roll the dice and don't waste away

You were caught in a cloud of your own memory
and now you’re left out in the rain
and I’m waiting here for you
to come around before you fade into memory

Beautiful tonight
as you move in deep twilight
Turn yourself inside
and just leave it all behind

You were caught in a cloud of your own memory
and now you’re left out in the rain
and I’m waiting here for you
to come around before you fade into memory
Track Name: Floating By
Nothing stands in isolation
You pull on me; I pull on you
But a subtle lapse in communication
Wrecks the rendezvous

And when you lie awake at night,
I’m gonna be there, floating by

Direct observation fails me
So I lie low looking for clues
And until some leap of faith avails me
I’ll just make do

And when you lie awake at night,
I’m gonna be there, floating by
Moon comes up; sun goes down,
And thoughts will linger
One day I’ll walk up to you and…

A ruse of light and sound
You’re slipping away now

And when you lie awake at night,
I’m gonna be there, floating by
Moon comes up; sun goes down,
And thoughts will linger
One day I’ll walk up to you and…
Track Name: Mourning Dove
Tell me why you can't feel the sunshine
Tell me why you only feel the rain
Your blue sky is always clouding over
Your alibi is always the same

Fly away my love
Play the mourning dove
Cry for everything
and never learn to sing like an angel through the dark

Don't talk to me of tragedy and sorrow
like you're the only one who's ever felt the pain

That's just the way that I used to play
I was three times my back to the wall before I turned around
I was set up to take a fall like a second-rate clown

Take me out and throw me in the water
Turn me around and pull me back again
You could shine like all the stars of heaven
Tell me why you only feel the rain

Fly away my love
Play the mourning dove
Cry for everything
and never learn to sing like an angel through the dark

Got to finish with all these things that been keeping me down
Track Name: Light of Day
Things that have been here for all your days
Can quickly be taken away
And spending time in nursery rhymes wont keep the wolves at bay

Everything under the sun will fade
Everything passes away
Things to shout or talk about; things that fall hard to the page

Breathe in slow
Touch the blue sky
And let it go
It’s fading away
Keep your cool tonight
A shadow dissolves in light of day

More than the watchmen who wait for the morning

Breathe in slow
Touch the blue sky
And let it go
It’s fading away
Just a rumor now
An echo to dance away

Everything under the sun will fade
In prelude for what is to come
Sing to me a memory
And show me the sweet light of day

Breathe in slow
Touch the blue sky
And let it go
Fire take flight
Keep your cool tonight

Breathe in time
Touch the blue sky
It’s fading away
Keep your cool tonight
A shadow dissolves in light of day
Track Name: For a While
for a while
I was sleeping, you were dreaming
for a while
we were both in tune

notes entwined
wrapped around the far horizon
caught inside
a lazy afternoon

Even so, away we go

concrete smile
every feature, chiseled denial
but for a while
we could still make do

Even so, away we go
Track Name: Whisper
I'm tired of the din, and the discordant rhymes today
I'm weary of smoke and mirrors that play
a shimmering lie



Everyone is so overdone
spitting out xeroxed opinions
created to fill in the time



But you're nowhere in the roar

Your love is a whisper away



The circus arrives with the noise and the lights on parade
The clowns dance around, and we all say
Isn't that nice?



But you're nowhere in the roar

Your love is a whisper away.

Track Name: Time Away
Heavy sky so beautiful to you
Wonder why you never played by ordinary rules

You always had a lot to say
and that’s what got me searching for

Time away, be with you tomorrow
Time away, it won’t be too long

Keep your cool don't let it melt away
If I knew what I could do I'd do it every day

and if I look a bit dismayed
I just need a little more

Time away, be with you tomorrow
Time away, it won’t be too long

Time away got to ease my mind
let my soul unwind into song
Time away got to rest my brain
Forget the pain and move on
Track Name: Dust
Don't give up on love
'cause you are loved

No matter who you are

Don't put out the light

Hold on tight

No matter where you are

Wash away the dust of every day

You wake up every morning
You take it day by day

And time is quick to pass
It doesn't last 
No matter who you are

Wash away the dust of every day
Track Name: Melt Away
I've been waiting for you
I've been waiting here all day 
I need to tell you
It's better now if we just melt away

Such a strange reaction
Such a cool, vacant gaze
Of satisfaction
You can hardly keep the smile from your face

So cool the anger
Show some grace
Before you melt away

A cool breeze blowing through dead leaves
Round and round

If I don't cling tightly
If won't feel the pain
When you melt away
And you just melt away
Track Name: In Dreams
Everyone
Everyone will go
And daylight glows in strangers’ eyes
Like a bittersweet sunrise
For you

Look out for the ones
Who leave you orphaned in the sun

In waking hours, memory has faded
So pray tonight I’ll be with you in dreams

Everything
Everything is bought and sold
It’s just fool’s gold to me
They’ll cut you just to see
How much you bleed

When any drop of rain
Would show the shape you’re in

In waking hours, memory has faded
And words fall out in scribbled streams
So lay me down on empty pages
And pray tonight I’ll be with you in dreams

Be careful what you say
You might give the game away

In waking hours, memory has faded
And words fall out in scribbled streams
So lay me down on empty pages
And pray tonight I’ll be with you in dreams
