Track Name: The Girl Is Good
The girl is good, the girl is good
She has it all and its understood
A fiery soul, a bustier
She looks you right in your eye until you turn away

She is a rock at the center of the pool
in and ocean of eyes and black suit ties
Keep coming in waves from the front to the back
and back again to the back to the front
bullet smiles, sharpened speech, paper notes and nervous teeth
cell phone calls, dirty gifts, you get turned down but you can resist

She is finally free
She is finally free

The girl is good, the girl is good
She has it all and its understood
Obsidian eyes, intelligent moves
She'll make you win, she'll make you lose
Track Name: Follow
I know I'll never be a rockstar, I just don't fit into the mold
I know I'll never be a business man, sit in my office till I'm old
My father took me to the army, my mother took me to the priest
But they could tell there was something wrong, going on inside of me

She said to me darling don't you see, follow your heart till you get old
She said to me darling just believe, follow your heart with all your soul

They see right through my indecision
They can read me like a ghost
I fear this road that I've taken on
Even though I know it's what I chose

They're burning money in the basement
Just so I could feel the punch
They're dowsing bill with gasoline so that I could see the truth


She said to me darling don't you see, follow your heart till you get old
She said to me darling just believe, follow your heart with all your soul

There is no one here to save me, no one else to blame but me
Nothing left to do, but to follow through

I knew I should have left it, it never felt right in my gut
I've been bending over backwards for something I never cared for much. Now the truth has come apparent, its head is rising up.
What did I do, Wheat did I do to get this much?


She said to me darling don't you see, follow your heart till you get old
She said to me darling just believe, follow your heart with all your soul

There's no one here to save me, no one else to blame but me. Nothing left to do, but to follow through and believe
in myself, in my self, steady as a stone. Believe in myself steady as a stone
Track Name: The Opening
I heard the door close loud,
The last goodbye for us I can't believe it now
All these years Why? You hid beneath the real

Now is where I stand, a million thoughts surround me
I don't have a plan. I just watch you all come and go.
Try to fix me up

But I'll follow the opening, I'll follow the opening.
Underneath this racing beat of a heart I will climb out

Memories and dreams tainted now with all this
bursting at the seams, but I am moving on without you
The river's growing strong

So I'll follow the opening, I'll follow the opening
Underneath this racing beat of a heart I will climb out

Looks like a disaster, but my pain has turned to laughter
Track Name: Rodello
I remember talking to her from the start
She led me away through the dark
To a painting she hung in the light
She named from a dream of another life

There were white walls and blue colored souls
Magnets that hang from the poles
Brush stroked crimson and hair
Her words falling out everywhere

Rodello, Rodello in a weightless joy she sung with a confidence that shined like the morning sun

She said it felt like a breeze on her skin
That spread out through her limbs
And when the air in the room magnetized
She felt her feet lift up and her body rise

Rodello, Rodello in a weightless joy she sung with a confidence that could over power anyone.

And she smiled like she remembered like a child again
And she smiled like she remembered how it always has been

And she smiled like she remembered like a child again
And she smiled like she remembered how it always has been and would be.

Rodello, Rodello in a weightless joy she sung with a confidence that shined like the morning sun
Track Name: Girl From Tennessee
Oh dear family it's hard just to write.
When you get this you'll be waking and I'll be on the train
I never could have asked for more in my life than your love and protection
Every day and every night

But I'm in love with a girl from Tennessee, I met her last November in the big city.

Tell my baby sister, I love her so, send me her picture so I can see her grow.
Tell my brother I am sorry about the things we had planned. We'll get together next winter and I'll write when I can

I'm in love with a girl from Tennessee, she's always on my mind now, I have to go and see

And her soul, oh it's bright as the moon, and it shines right through, the darkest of gloom. And her smile, oh it fills me with joy, a radiant beam right through my core

Father you gave me the courage to go. Mother you taught me to respect and to know. Now I'm in love with a girl from Tennessee, she's alway on my mind now I have to go and see.

Because her soul, oh it's bright as the moon, and it shines right through, the darkest of gloom. And her smile, oh it fills me with joy, a radiant beam right through my core.

And so this is goodbye, and so this is goodbye.
Track Name: Chroma
It's all around, the orange and the blues, I caught the current shoes sunk beneath the sand. Under the gravity and the heavy weighted light, streaming ripple waves wrap the ankles tight.

Oh love you proved me wrong, you were right all along, and the light reflects every color of your imagination, out to the horizon.

Floating on the top, the yellows, grays and greens, into a kaleidoscope I saw it plant its seeds. Shadows overlapping a shiny bed of white, slowly spiraling to an orchestra of light

Oh love you proved me wrong, you were right all along, and the light reflects every color of your imagination, out to the horizon.

If only you could see it with me now, barreling up on this old stubborn frown.
You'd laugh like you always did

Out a hundred miles a spot light in the dark, shifting the shape of things that once had fell apart, clinging to the weeds but dreaming flight out to a better place that makes you feel alive

Oh love you proved me wrong, you were right all along, the light reflects every color of your imagination out to the horizon.
Track Name: Our Love
It took a while, but now we're here alone
We found each other and it feels like home
Nature's subtle rhythm was far ahead of drum
But now together the beat is one.

Mountains of blessings and rivers of love, flow in spirit, fly in like doves. Pittering Patterns in the depth of our sky, free to rest and free to fly

Our love is in everything, vast and wide, deep in your eye
Where the silence speaks from the highest peaks to the deepest oceans of the earth, our love, our love

Is bright in the strength of two, cutting through the darkness in the strength of two, falling on all the beautiful steps of our song, we see our battle is already won.

Lovers and dreamers from the same soul, imaginations strong and bold. Weaving a quilt of a wondrous life in the home of God in a room of light,
Track Name: Red and Black Pearls
They're falling out of the sky
Red and black pearls.
And mother Mary's crying, letting tears drop into the heat of the sun

Touch your life, tickle your skin, with some way of knowing. You can't kill something so beautiful, you can't kill something so beautiful

Bright as an apple, shined with a cloth
Black circles, polished and glossed
And everyone is made perfect, from the shelter of her heart

Touch your life, tickle your skin, with some way of knowing. You can't kill something so beautiful, You can't kill something so beautiful.

They're hovering over the street, landing on the pavement
And mother nature's crying tears of joy even when she's dying.
Track Name: The Hum of Ancient Light
I heard the moon singing soft
Like a ship running for years, finally turns its motor off
And I hear the ocean floor, like the waves didn't matter anymore

The hum of city lights, electric power lines, disappearing deep in my mind.

I heard the peace of your love
Like an old anchor beneath watching me sway above
And I hear the coral reef like it was whispering me

The hum of ancient light, the hum of paradise, disappearing deep in my mind.
Track Name: Brand New Song
I've looked all around, every corner, every corner
And it all comes back to one, the thing that I knew right from the start
And I know, I started a problem without a cause

It's laughable pain, like a sermon, like a sermon, In my head but not in my life and I reap just what I sew, and I know

How many people have told me so
and that's just it

Break out the champagne glasses, the band with brasses, put it in a brand new song, let first be last and forget this past
I just wanna dream it all away , I just wanna dream it all away
But then I wake, I can't escape

I want to love you, I want to leave you
That's the snag you got me in
I want to leave you, I want to need you
Thats the snag you got me in

Oh send me along, down the river, but up the mountain.
Where the morning sparrow calls
And he sings an unimpeded song
In the break of the early dawn
