Animal Eyes 03:30
My eyes are spending the night with you, My eyes are swimming with you… When it’s cold, wind is blowin’ In front of the fire… My eyes are finding you home again… My hands are spending the night with you… When it’s cold, wind is blowin’ In front of the fire… Like a dragonfly, Sharpen your knives… When it’s cold, wind is blowin’ In front of the fire… Like a dragonfly, You’ve got animal eyes…

She kills the things that she loves Woman sing, rivers flow Something creeps in a drizzle Stomp a bug, and bled them Lost my cherry, we ate meat Lady Luck, like a sweet song Down the road, backwoods on fire Butterflies blowin' pines Sounds like home Your ragtime sighs in the rain Blood on the table Not a soul is awake - long ways want to breathe You keep an eye Lost my cherry, we ate meat Lady Luck, like a sweet song Down the road, backwoods on fire Butterflies blowin' pines Sounds like home All love slip out Deep in the city Spoon out the dead Broken in the valley She kills the things that she loves Woman sing, rivers flow Something creeps in a drizzle Stomp a bug, and bled them Lost my cherry, we ate meat Lady Luck, like a sweet song Down the road, backwoods on fire Butterflies blowin' pines Sounds like home (Your ragtime sighs) (Your ragtime sighs)

Subterranean 03:15
He took her in his arms… The tide comes The blood goes Wish, O wish I Heart cut out I’ll get down on my knees…. (He took her in his arms…) Breath and body Take from you Flower of sorrows Nobody knows Nobody knows... (somebody like you) I’ll get down on my knees…. (He took her in his arms…) Wind is blowing Odor of rum To the living Wide open arms The tide comes The blood goes Wish, O wish I Nobody knows…

In a Circle 02:17
I’ve got lovers I’ve got suicide I’ve got agony for you For you, for you, for you, for you I got what I wanted I got madness I got peace and death Got no politics for you For you, for you, for you, for you I got what I needed Sucking through straws You see more and more Hit all my friends In the head Gotcha by the tongue Hunt em' down, run run Somebody to Love? Do you still want me? Are you waiting for me? I’ve got lovers I’ve got suicide I’ve got agony for you For you, for you, for you, for you I got what I wanted

One Smile 02:46
Flashing minnows In a pond Such things disappear Longing to see again Our hearts in a dream Slip behind a cloud Lay awake, think about it If I got lost along the way Out into the streets Kicking my way through Under a pile of wet leaves Moving through the days Am I still in real time? Through our nights Winter sees the snow She claimed the tide I wanted his eyes Heart in the fire For just one smile And ruined mascara Sleep with you Drown in your mirror Cross my heart Hope to die Kicking my way through Under a pile of wet leaves Moving through the night Am I still in real time? Be with you…

No connection to the words I am singing for what it’s worth All my senses are aware All my love I want to share I try & I try feel nothing at all I'm writing my lines painting a song Why am I so hard on myself? Chasing a creative mind Every thought romanticized All I ever wish to share Genuine love n genuine care I try & I try feel nothing at all I’m writing my lines painting a song I try & I try feel nothing at all Why am I so hard on myself? I love the morn I love the sunrise I love to wake As much as I I love the morn I love the sunrise I love to wake As much as I I love the morn I love the sunrise I love to wake As much as I Try & I try feel nothing at all Writing a line painting a song I try & I try feel nothing at all Why am I here why do I fall I try & I try feel nothing at all Writing a line painting a song I try & I try feel nothing at all Why am I so hard on myself

Wind turning the night Hold me so tight Tears fill your eyes You try not to cry We got so much to talk about Your body next to mine It sure feels right I look down in his eyes Sing you a lullaby We got so much to talk about Have some coffee now Follow your heart Been walking the road Journey through the skies Long night in your eyes We got so much to talk about Have some coffee now We got so much to talk about Lay your body next to mine (Oooooh Jasper)

Sea of Stars 04:17
Basket of flowers Dressed in black Whisper in the winds Into the sun Bandage the wounded We held our breath Fly the night away Things will be okay Million reasons to cry When you go By the light of the stars The sea of stars I’ll stand by you Watch over you Who is putting fear into your hearts? Down in my eyes Watches me die Who is putting fear into your hearts? Fly the night away Things will be okay Who is putting fear into your hearts? Basket of flowers Dressed in black Who is putting fear into your hearts? By the light of the stars The sea of stars Who is putting fear into your hearts? By the light of the stars The sea of stars
