    "Ripple"

    If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
    And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
    Would you hear my voice come thru the music,
    Would you hold it near as it were your own?

    Its a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,
    Perhaps they're better left unsung.
    I don't know, don't really care
    Let there be songs to fill the air.

    Ripple in still water,
    When there is no pebble tossed,
    Nor wind to blow.

    Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,
    If your cup is full may it be again,
    Let it be known there is a fountain,
    That was not made by the hands of men.

    There is a road, no simple highway,
    Between the dawn and the dark of night,
    And if you go no one may follow,
    That path is for your steps alone.

    Ripple in still water,
    When there is no pebble tossed,
    Nor wind to blow.

    But if you fall you fall alone,
    If you should stand then who's to guide you?
    If I knew the way I would take you home.
    ~Robert Hunter~

    "Box of Rain"

    Look out of any window
    any morning, any evening, any day
    Maybe the sun is shining
    birds are winging or
    rain is falling from a heavy sky -
    What do you want me to do,
    to do for you to see you through?
    this is all a dream we dreamed
    one afternoon long ago
    Walk out of any doorway
    feel your way, feel your way
    like the day before
    Maybe you'll find direction
    around some corner
    where it's been waiting to meet you -
    What do you want me to do,
    to watch for you while you're sleeping?
    Well please don't be surprised
    when you find me dreaming too

    Look into any eyes
    you find by you, you can see
    clear through to another day
    I know it's been seen before
    through other eyes on other days
    while going home --
    What do you want me to do,
    to do for you to see you through?
    It's all a dream we dreamed
    one afternoon long ago

    Walk into splintered sunlight
    Inch your way through dead dreams
    to another land
    Maybe you're tired and broken
    Your tongue is twisted
    with words half spoken
    and thoughts unclear
    What do you want me to do
    to do for you to see you through
    A box of rain will ease the pain
    and love will see you through

    Just a box of rain -
    wind and water -
    Believe it if you need it,
    if you don't just pass it on
    Sun and shower -
    Wind and rain -
    in and out the window
    like a moth before a flame

    It's just a box of rain
    I don't know who put it there
    Believe it if you need it
    or leave it if you dare
    But it's just a box of rain
    or a ribbon for your hair
    Such a long long time to be gone
    and a short time to be there
    ~Robert Hunter~

    "Prairie Wedding"

    We only knew each other by letter
    I went to meet her off the train
    When the smoke had cleared and the dust was still

    She was standing there and speaking my name
    I guarantee she looked like an angel
    I couldn't think of what I should say
    But when Adam saw Eve in the garden
    I believe he felt the same way

    I handed her up on the wagon
    And I loaded up her trunk behind
    She was sitting up there with the gold in her hair
    And I tried to get hold of my mind

    Do you think that you could love me Mary
    Do you think we got a chance of a life
    Do you think that you could love me Mary
    Now you are to be my wife

    We finally headed out of the station
    And we drove up to the home trail
    And when we came to the farm she laid a hand on my arm

    I thought my resolution would fail
    And I froze as she stepped in the doorway
    Stood there as still as could be
    I said I know it ain't much, it needs a woman's touch
    Lord she turned around and looked at me

    Do you think that you could love me Mary
    You think we got a chance of a life
    Do you think that you could love me Mary
    Now you are to be my wife

    We had a prairie wedding
    There was a preacher and a neighbor or two
    I gave my golden thing a gold wedding ring
    And the both of us said I do
    And when the sun's going down on the prairie
    And the gold in her hair is aflame
    I say do you really love me Mary
    And I hold her and I whisper her name

    Do you think that you could love me Mary
    You think we got a chance of a life
    Do you think that you could love me Mary
    Now you are to be my wife

    "Hurt"

    I hurt myself today
    To see if I still feel
    I focus on the pain
    The only thing that's real
    The needle tears a hole
    The old familiar sting
    Try to kill it all away
    But I remember everything

    [Chorus:]
    What have I become
    My sweetest friend
    Everyone I know goes away
    In the end
    And you could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    I wear this crown of thorns
    Upon my liar's chair
    Full of broken thoughts
    I cannot repair
    Beneath the stains of time
    The feelings disappear
    You are someone else
    I am still right here

    [Chorus:]
    What have I become
    My sweetest friend
    Everyone I know goes away
    In the end
    And you could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    If I could start again
    A million miles away
    I would keep myself
    I would find a way

    "The Only Thing That's Real"

    Out here it's 95 degrees in the shade
    There's nothing left, but ashes of the plans we made
    I'll be the last one standing, I'm not afraid
    Of trippin' over myself, worrying 'bout
    the things they said

    It feels just like being alone
    I wish I was at home with you
    You're the only thing that's real

    All the books I've read just leave me cold
    Same lies, same confessions, same stories being told
    It's amazing how cheaply everyone's bought and sold
    How easy we break, how easily we fold

    And you know
    It feels just like being alone
    I wish I was at home with you
    You're the only thing that's real
    I can do anything
    Act like a fool or I can sing about you
    You're the only thing that's real

    It's so easy to stumble, so easy to lose your way
    It won't take much to forget what you're trying to say

    "Smile"

    Smile though your heart is aching
    Smile even though it's breaking
    When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
    If you smile through your fear and sorrow
    Smile and maybe tomorrow
    You'll see the sun come shining through for you

    Light up your face with gladness
    Hide every trace of sadness
    Although a tear may be ever so near
    That's the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what's the use of crying?
    You'll find that life is still worthwhile
    If you just smile

    That's the time you must keep on trying
    Smile, what's the use of crying?
    You'll find that life is still worthwhile
    If you just smile

    Smile

    "My Skin"

    Take a look at my body
    Look at my hands
    There's so much here
    That I don't understand

    Your face saving promises
    Whispered like prayers
    I don't need them
    I don't need them

    I've been treated so wrong
    I've been treated so long
    As if I'm becoming untouchable

    Contempt loves the silence
    It thrives in the dark
    With fine winding tendrils
    That strangle the heart

    They say that promises
    Sweeten the blow
    But I don't need them
    No, I don't need them

    I've been treated so wrong
    I've been treated so long
    As if I'm becoming untouchable

    I'm a slow dying flower
    Frost killing hour
    The sweet turning sour
    And untouchable

    O, I need
    The darkness
    The sweetness
    The sadness
    The weakness
    I need this

    I need
    A lullaby
    A kiss goodnight
    Angel sweet
    Love of my life
    O, I need this

    Do you remember the way
    That you touched me before
    All the trembling sweetness
    I loved and adored?

    Your face saving promises
    Whispered like prayers
    I don't need them
    No, I don't need them

    O, I need
    The darkness
    The sweetness
    The sadness
    The weakness
    I need this

    I need
    A lullaby
    A kiss goodnight
    The angel sweet
    Love of my life
    I need this

    Is it dark enough?
    Can you see me?
    Do you want me?
    Can you reach me?
    Or I'm leaving

    You better shut your mouth
    Hold your breath
    Kiss me now you'll catch my death
    O, I mean it

    Stormy are the waters
    Of restless Waiapu
    If you cross them, girl
    They will be calmed

    Oh girl
    Come back to me
    I could die
    Of love for you

    I write you my letter
    I send you my ring
    So your people can see
    How troubled I am

    Oh girl
    Come back to me
    I could die
    Of love for you

    Oh girl
    Come back to me
    I could die
    Of love for you

    I could die
    Of love (for you).

    "Crawl"

    Standing at the window looking out with both hands on the phone pressed to my ear
    I lean my forehead against the glass
    and it's cold against my skin
    I run my fingers along the shape of the phone searching out every seam and crevice
    looking for the way in
    the phone rings in my ear again and a machine you comes on
    and tells me to leave a message and you'll call
    I think now that if I try, if I try, if I concentrate hard enough
    I can change myself into something else
    then I'll be able to pour myself into this wire
    travel across these lines and find my way to you
    or maybe there's another trick, another spell
    and I could change you
    and I'd draw you to me,
    pull you to me,
    crawl to me

    draw you to me
    pull you to me
    call you to me
    crawl to me

    "One Last Dance"

    As we lay here tonight
    Please forgive me girl if I say the future is not bright
    But please take my hand and we'll have one last dance in the place where we first met eyes

    Holy city zoo
    I recall the name of the place where I first saw you
    With your eyes so kind
    And your smile so bright
    I just wanted to take you home

    Where you go I wanna go
    What you do I wanna do
    I'll be your Troy Donnahue
    If you'll be my Sandra Dee

    It's a trivial pursuit
    But I know if I fall on my heart
    I'll be with you
    But please understand I am just a man
    And I need you to take me home

    We're together now
    Wanna change my shoes so I feel like you somehow
    Need to breathe your breathe and caress your dress
    I'll be with you for quite some time

    I'll take you where you wanna go
    Tell me where
    I wanna know
    I will just go with the flow
    As long as I'm there with you

    Are the kids ok
    Did they find the time to give the call today
    But my hearts with yours
    I am keeping score of the things that I have done wrong

    Another funeral
    All the people I know are beginning to fade away
    And I have to say that at least today its beginning to get me down

    To this day I'm lovin you
    We know what we wanna do
    I am your Troy Donnahue
    And you are my Sandra Dee

    Now I know you well
    I still love you adore you I need you more than then
    With your eyes still kind and your smile so bright
    I still want to take you home

    And I will do all that I can
    You're my women I'm your man
    And if we still don't have a plan
    We'll listen to Thunderoad

    "Mirrorball"

    I plant the kind of kiss
    That wouldn't wake a baby
    On the self same face
    The lie wouldn't let me sleep
    And the street is singing with my feet
    And dawn gives me a shadow I know to be taller
    All down to you, dear
    Everything has changed

    My sorry name
    Has made it to graffiti
    I was looking for
    Someone to complete me
    Not anymore, dear.
    Everything has changed

    You make the moon a mirrorball
    The streets an empty stage
    The city's sirens, violins
    Everything has changed

    So lift off love
    All down to you, dear
    And lift off love
    All down to you, dear

    And we took the town to town last night
    We kissed like we invented it
    And now I know what every step is for
    To lead me to your door
    Know that while you sleep
    Everything has changed

    You make the moon a mirrorball
    The streets an empty stage
    The city's sirens, violins
    Everything has changed.
    Everything has changed.
    Everything has changed

    Mirrorball

    "Sometime Around Midnight"

    And it starts, sometime around midnight.
    Or at least that’s when you lose yourself
    for a minute or two.
    As you stand, under the bar lights.
    And the band plays some song
    about forgetting yourself for a while.
    And the piano’s this melancholy soundtrack to her smile.
    And that white dress she’s wearing
    you haven’t seen her for a while.

    But you know, that she’s watching.
    She’s laughing, she’s turning.
    She’s holding her tonic like a cross*.
    The room’s suddenly spinning.
    She walks up and asks how you are.
    So you can smell her perfume.
    You can see her lying naked in your arms.

    And so there’s a change, in your emotions.
    And all these memories come rushing
    like feral waves to your mind.
    Of the curl of your bodies,
    like two perfect circles entwined.
    And you feel hopeless and homeless
    and lost in the haze of the wine.

    Then she leaves, with someone you don’t know.
    But she makes sure you saw her.
    She looks right at you and bolts.
    As she walks out the door,
    your blood boiling
    your stomach in ropes.
    Oh and when your friends say,
    “What is it? You look like you’ve seen a ghost.”

    Then you walk, under the streetlights.
    And you’re too drunk to notice,
    that everyone is staring at you.
    You just don’t care what you look like,
    the world is falling around you.

    You just have to see her.
    You just have to see her.
    You just have to see her.
    You just have to see her.
    You just have to see her.
    You know that she’ll break you in two.

    "Make You Feel My Love"

    When the rain is blowing in your face,
    and the whole world is on your case,
    I could offer you a warm embrace
    to make you feel my love.

    When the evening shadows and the stars appear,
    and there is no one there to dry your tears,
    I could hold you for a million years
    to make you feel my love.

    I know you haven't made your mind up yet,
    but I would never do you wrong.
    I've known it from the moment that we met,
    no doubt in my mind where you belong.

    I'd go hungry; I'd go black and blue,
    I'd go crawling down the avenue.
    No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
    to make you feel my love.

    The storms are raging on the rolling sea
    and on the highway of regret.
    Though winds of change are throwing wild and free,
    you ain't seen nothing like me yet.

    I could make you happy, make your dreams come true.
    Nothing that I wouldn't do.
    Go to the ends of the Earth for you,
    to make you feel my love
    ~ Adele ~
    Make You Feel My Love

    "Dance Me To The End Of Love"

    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
    Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love
    Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone
    Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon
    Show me slowly what I only know the limits of
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on
    Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long
    We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to the children who are asking to be born
    Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn
    Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn
    Dance me to the end of love

    Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
    Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love
    ~ Leonard Cohen ~
    Dance Me to the End of Love

    "Desire"

    A lover knows only humility, he has no choice.
    He steals into your alley at night, he has no choice.
    He longs to kiss every lock of your hair, don't fret,
    he has no choice.
    In his frenzied love for you, he longs to break the chains of his imprisonment,
    he has no choice.

    A lover asked his beloved:
    Do you love yourself more than you love me?
    Beloved replied: I have died to myself and I live for you.
    I've disappeared from myself and my attributes,
    I am present only for you.
    I've forgotten all my learnings,
    but from knowing you I've become a scholar.
    I've lost all my strength, but from your power I am able.

    I love myself...I love you.
    I love you...I love myself.

    I am your lover, come to my side,
    I will open the gate to your love.
    Come settle with me, let us be neighbours to the stars.
    You have been hiding so long, endlessly drifting in the sea of my love.
    Even so, you have always been connected to me.
    Concealed, revealed, in the unknown, in the un-manifest.
    I am life itself.

    You have been a prisoner of a little pond,
    I am the ocean and its turbulent flood.
    Come merge with me,
    leave this world of ignorance.
    Be with me, I will open the gate to your love.

    I desire you more than food or drink
    My body my senses my mind hunger for your taste
    I can sense your presence in my heart
    although you belong to all the world
    I wait with silent passion for one gesture one glance
    from you.
    ~ Buddha Bar ~


    "Undress Me"

    There is a world I keep inside
    When I´m with you I can´t hide
    You see everything
    A part of me I can´t disguise
    I loose myself inside your eyes
    `Cause you see everything

    Everybody´s searching for the one
    And baby I´ve been waiting for so long
    And now you undress me, you read my mind
    Revealing my secrets that I´ve tried to hide
    You´ve got that something, touching my soul
    And when I´m around you, you make me whole
    The way you caress me, you undress me

    The thought of you makes me so strong
    I know that I can´t do no wrong
    I could do anything
    I cross the sea, I´ll walk the moon
    Just to spend the night with you
    I could do anything

    Everybody´s searching for the one
    And baby I´ve been waiting for so long
    And now you undress me, you read my mind
    Revealing my secrets, that I´ve tried to hide
    You´ve got that something, touching my soul
    And when I am around you, you make me whole
    The way you caress me, you undress me

    I´m naked before you, oh here I am
    I´m naked before you, here I am

    I´ve been searching for the one
    At every turnin´ I was wrong
    Now I know where I belong
    Now you undress me (ooh)
    Yes now you undress me (oh ooh baby)
    You make me whole
    The way you undress me, you read my mind
    Revealing my secrets that I´ve tried to hide
    You´ve got that something touching my soul
    And when I am around you, you make me whole
    The way you caress me, you undress me

    "She Moved Through The Fair"

    My love said to me
    My Mother won't mind
    And me Father won't slight you
    For your lack of kind
    Then she stepped away from me
    And this she did say
    It will not be long love
    Till our wedding day

    She stepped away from me
    And she moved through the fair
    And fondly I watched her
    Move here and move there
    And she went her way homeward
    With one star awake
    As the swans in the evening
    Move over the lake

    I dreamed it last night
    That my true love came in
    So softly she entered
    Her feet made mo din
    She came close beside me
    And this she did say
    It would not be long love
    Till our wedding day.

    "The Dress"

    Tears you see on my face,
    You do have something to do with
    Fear starts creeping up
    When you have so much to lose
    Your love waits you while you're cheating
    Lightning strikes you when you're moving

    The light you see in my eyes
    You do have something to do with
    Play the game namely love
    Play it like you have nothing to lose
    Horse loves you when you move with him
    People hate you when you're changing

    Don't let the dress trick you
    I love you less now that I know you
    I won't count the scars again
    I love you less now that I know you

    The glow you see on my face
    You do have something to do with
    Fear starts creeping up
    When you have so much to lose
    Your love wait you while you're cheating
    Lighting strikes you when you're moving

    Don't let me wonder away
    I love you less now that I know you
    Don't let the dress trick you
    I love you less now that I know you

    I won't count the scars again
    Because I love you

    "The Story"

    All of these lines across my face
    Tell you the story of who I am
    So many stories of where I've been
    And how I got to where I am
    But these stories don't mean anything
    When you've got no one to tell them to
    It's true...I was made for you
    I climbed across the mountain tops
    Swam all across the ocean blue
    I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
    But baby I broke them all for you
    Because even when I was flat broke
    You made me feel like a million bucks
    You do
    I was made for you
    You see the smile that's on my mouth
    It's hiding the words that don't come out
    And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
    They don't know my head is a mess
    No, they don't know who I really am
    And they don't know what
    I've been through like you do
    And I was made for you...
    All of these lines across my face
    Tell you the story of who I am
    So many stories of where I've been
    And how I got to where I am
    But these stories don't mean anything
    When you've got no one to tell them to
    It's true...I was made for you

    The Story

    "Carolina"

    Oh, where you goin' for the two hundred and fiftieth time
    (Well I'm waiting for a sign)
    Well, it looks just like another line
    And I'm walking backwards to the place where I come from
    Oh but that ain't enough, no you want me to run

    Used to feel like California, with baby eyes so blue
    Now I feel like Carolina, I split myself in two
    Now I'm walking backwards from Chicago through Washington
    Oh but that ain't enough no, you want me to run
    Oh that ain't enough no you want me to run

    Better watch your soul it'll leave you like a hundred bucks
    My friend said, stick to your guns
    But instead I just got stuck
    And I'm walking backwards lookin' forward to getting done
    Oh but that ain't enough, no you want me to run
    Oh that ain't enough no, you want me to run

    Used to feel like California, with baby eyes so blue
    Now I feel like Carolina, I split myself in two
    Used to feel like California, with baby eyes so blue
    Now I feel like Carolina, I split myself in two

    Good night Irene Good night Irene
    I'll see you in my dreams

    Last Saturday night I got married

    Now me and my wife have parted
    I'm gonna take a little stroll downtown

    Irene good night Irene good night
    Good night Irene Good night Irene
    I'll see you in my dreams

    Some times I live in the country
    Some times I live in town
    Some times I take a great notion
    To jump in the river and drown

    Irene good night Irene good night
    Good night Irene Good night Irene
    I'll see you in my dreams

    Quit your rambling quit your gambling
    Stop staying out late at night
    Stay home with your wife and family
    And stay by the fireside of right

    "All My Days"

    Well I have been searching all of my days
    All of my days
    Many a road, you know
    I'e been walking on
    All of my days
    And I've been trying to find
    What's been in my mind
    As the days keep turning into night

    Well I have been quietly standing in the shade
    All of my days
    Watch the sky breaking on the promise that we made
    All of this rain
    And I've been trying to find
    What's been in my mind
    As the days keep turning into night

    Well many a night I found myself with no friends standing near
    All of my days
    I cried aloud
    I shook my hands
    What am I doing here
    All of these days
    For I look around me
    And my eyes confound me
    And it's just too bright
    As the days keep turning into night

    Now I see clearly
    It's you I'm looking for
    All of my days
    Soon I'll smile
    I know I'll feel this loneliness no more
    All of my days
    For I look around me
    And it seems He found me
    And it's coming into sight
    As the days keep turning into night
    As the days keep turning into night
    And even breathing feels all right
    Yes, even breathing feels all right
    Now even breathing feels all right
    It's even breathing
    Feels all right

    "All Is Full Of Love"

    You'll be given love
    You'll be taken care of
    You'll be given love
    You have to trust it
    Maybe not from the sources
    You've poured yours
    Into
    Maybe not
    From the directions
    You are
    Staring at
    Twist your head around
    Its all around you
    All is full of love
    All around you
    All is full of love
    You just ain't receiving
    All is full of love
    Your phone is off the hook
    All is full of love
    Your doors are all shut
    All is full of love
    ~ Bjork ~
    All Is Full Of Love

    "I'll Carry You"

    How does it feel
    To know that you are loved so much
    How does it feel to be accepted
    So completely
    How does it feel to know that you
    Mean everything to someone
    How does it feel to know that
    You're exactly what i wanted

    How does it feel
    To know that you are loved

    I love you more than you can see
    This is everything you are to me
    ~ Halou ~
    I'll Carry You

    "A Song For You"

    I've been so many places in my life and time
    I've sung a lot of songs I've made some bad rhyme
    I've acted out my love in stages
    With ten thousand people watching
    But we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you

    I know your image of me is what I hope to be
    I've treated you unkindly but darlin' can't you see
    There's no one more important to me
    Darlin' can't you please see through me
    Cause we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you

    You taught me precious secrets of the truth witholding nothing
    You came out in front and I was hiding
    But now I'm so much better and if my words don't come together
    Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding

    I love you in a place where there's no space or time
    I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine
    And when my life is over
    Remember when we were together
    We were alone and I was singing this song for you

    You taught me precious secrets of the truth witholding nothing
    You came out in front and I was hiding
    But now I'm so much better and if my words don't come together
    Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding

    I love you in a place where there's no space or time
    I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine
    And when my life is over
    Remember when we were together
    We were alone and I was singing this song for you
    We were alone and I was singing this song for you

    A Song for You

    "River of Stars"

    The wind is warm
    and melts upon my face just like
    the perfect breath you breathe

    The sun escapes
    and slides like ice into this veil of night
    a shadow of the light

    And I will ride this river made of stars
    Till I have reached the steaming shore where you are

    The gravel moans
    sides beneath my feet and I can hear you
    call to me in sleep

    I drape the dark
    upon the glaring day and feel your skin
    upon me as we lay

    And I shall ride this river made of stars
    Till I have reached the steaming shore where you are

    To touch you in the dark...
    to touch you in the dark...
    to kiss you in the dark...
    kiss you...

    "Center of the Sun"

    Young girl in the market
    Music to the men
    When the men leave
    Her eyes are red
    When her eyes are closed again she sees the dark market of above

    And she sings
    'They say the most horrible things
    But I hear violins, when I close my eyes
    I am at the center of the sun
    And I cannot be hurt
    By anything this wicked world has done'

    Young boy in the market
    Follows all the men
    When the men leave
    He's out of his head
    When his eyes are closed again he sees the dark market of above

    And he sings
    'They break the most beautiful things
    But I hear violins, when I close my eyes
    I am at the center of the sun
    And I cannot be hurt
    By anything this wicked world has done
    I look into your eyes
    And I am at the center of the sun
    And I cannot be hurt
    By anything this wicked world has done'

    Center of the sun

    Young boy in the market
    Sees the girl alone
    And asks her
    'Have you lost your way home?'
    She sings
    'You say the most beautiful things, just like my violins'

    I look into your eyes
    I am at the center of the sun
    And I cannot be hurt
    By anything this wicked world has done

    When I close my eyes
    I am at the center of the sun
    And I cannot be hurt
    By anything this wicked world has done

    'Cause
    I hear violins
    I hear violins

    I hear violins
    I hear violins

    Center of the sun

    I hear ...violins

    "Wish u were here"

    Like waves to the shore
    Part of the ocean
    The stars high above
    Part of the sky

    Now I drift to you
    I dream of a river
    A water so blue
    Wish I could live there

    Wish you were here..

    Like the air that I breathe
    You'll always be there
    The wings that I need
    When I wanna fly

    Now I drift to you
    I dream of a river
    A water so blue
    Wish I could live there

    Wish you were here..
    ~ Bliss ~
    Wish U Were Here

    "Beneath Your Tree"

    I could bleed, bleed, bleed for days
    but my heart would still beat for you dear
    Yet we carry on
    Like a storm
    Like we've no idea where we're coming from
    But the rain will subside by the morning

    I could drag my legs across the desert
    But my lips would still thirst for you dear
    Yet I feel your gaze like a furnace
    Though it burns, I go on; I keep crawling

    And the moon will rise in the evening
    And I'll fall to sleep beneath your tree,
    And the wind will howl through your leaves
    And serenade me

    You don't own me
    But I'll take your lead down a gnarly thicket in the trees
    And we're soon lost, and we're terrified
    But I'll always find my way to your eyes

    And the moon will rise in the evening
    And I'll fall to sleep beneath your tree
    And the wind will howl through your leaves
    And serenade me
    ~ Bowerbirds ~
    Beneath Your Tree

    If It's The Beaches

    Don't say it's over
    Cause that's the worst news I could hear I swear that I will
    Do my best to be here just the way you like it
    Even though its hard to hide
    Push my feelings all aside
    I will rearrange my plans and change for you

    If I could go back
    That's the first thing I would do I swear that I would
    Do my best to follow through
    Come up with a master plan
    A home-run hit, a winning stand
    A guarantee and not a promise
    That I'll never let your love slip from my hands

    If it's the beaches
    If it's the beaches' sands you want
    Then you will have them
    If it's the mountains' bending rivers
    Then you will have them
    If it's the wish to run away
    Then I will grant it
    Take whatever what you think of
    While I go gas up the truck
    Pack the old love letters up
    We will read them when we forget why we left here
    ~ The Avett Brothers ~

    "That's Amore"

    In Napoli where love is king
    When boy meets girl here's what they say

    When the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie
    That's amore
    When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
    That's amore
    Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
    And you'll sing "Vita bella"
    Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
    Like a gay tarantella

    When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
    That's amore
    When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
    You're in love
    When you walk down in a dream but you know you're not
    Dreaming signore
    Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
    That's amore

    Three Rounds And A Sound

    They're playing our song
    They're playing our song
    Can you see the lights?
    Can you hear the hum?

    Of our song
    I hope they get it right
    I hope we dance tonight
    Before we, get it wrong

    And the seasons
    Will change us new
    Be the best I've known
    and you know me
    I could not be stuck on you
    If it were true

    I was sleeping
    My eyes were dark
    Til you woke me
    And told me that opening
    is just the start
    it was

    Now I see you, til kingdom come
    You're the one I want
    To see me for all the stupid shit I've done

    (Chorus)
    Soil and six feet under
    Killed just like we were
    Before you knew you'd know me
    And you know me

    Blooming up from the ground
    3 Rounds and a sound
    Like whispering you know me
    And you know me

    So this was our song
    This was our song
    I still see the lights
    I can see them

    And the criss cross
    Of what is true, won't get to us
    Cause you know me
    I could not give up on you

    And the fog of what is right
    Won't cover us cause you know me
    I could not give up a fight
    ~ Blind Pilot ~
    3 Rounds and a Sound

    Echoes

    I'm calling for you,for you
    and I'm falling for you for you

    the word outside
    there lies in peace
    the echoes of your tender voice
    still haunted me

    until the dawning of the day
    I still can't find no sleep
    the loss of you it has to hurt
    take comfort in my weep

    I dry my tears in memories
    but joy and sorrows
    they're leading me

    my childhood days - so out of sight
    wish you could be with me
    and not so far away
    from my brightest day

    Darkest Dreaming

    Stay tonight
    We'll watch the full moon rising
    Hold on tight
    The sky is breaking
    I don't ever want to be alone
    With all my darkest dreaming
    Hold me close
    The sky is breaking

    I don't ever want to be alone
    With all my darkest dreaming
    Hold me close
    The sky is breaking
