Track Name: Heartspell
heartspell

darling i have been all but myself lately
seen the worst of me take over
clearly i struggled hard to just keep going
wondering why this world's been cut in two

and i lay there on my face again
taste the heavy scent of past
must be lying to myself
if i hadn't all but given up

take this song, sing it back to me
why don't you let your heart spell
what's been growing inside
letting go might come as a revelation
and a passion's never meant to hide

learn to stand on my two feet again
taste the air and climb ride up
have a heart to share
and dreams to spend
Track Name: Change
change

woke with a feeling i knew
from a time when i was young
just when i thought that i finally gave it away

looking around i had built myself
some pretty fortune that now
holds me and weighs on my shoulder
and tells me to stay, just stay that way

all of these things that you carry along
on your way out
keep coming back telling you
inside is where we estrange

all of these things that you carry along
on your way out
keep coming back telling you
inside is where we can't change
Track Name: The Spinning Wheel
the spinning wheel

sister
see the world around you changing
keep on searching
and you will be

brother
feel the beauty around you fading
keep on looking
and you will see
it’s still in front of you
in front of you

soldier
fighting wars beyond your reason
keep on asking
we are what we know

lover
with your heart so fair will you
keep on fighting
to leave the shell
leave the shell

we’ll be like the ocean waves
the rivers and the sky
we’ll be like the mountain high
the earth and the fire
Track Name: The Only Heart
the only heart

things unanticipated to this day
found their way between us and outweigh
what felt safe and sound
tearing it down
didn’t see it coming round
now crashing right into the ground

had what I misjudged as a relief
turned on me and all that I believed
should I really let this distress
create the mess to force us into helplessness

summer breezes slowly through the open doorway
season’s been too good to us to really make me say that
it’s just mounting up too much
if yours is the only heart that I can never touch
the only heart that I won’t ever…

why would you build these clouds, pass them by
do what is obvious, and defy
the whole imagery, to rely
on a notion or degree
of mutual understanding…

fine, I let you have your way, but I spare
this one thought of us and time to dare
like a vision kept in secrecy
and all that was me
locked with it, silently

summer breezes slowly through the open doorway
season’s been too good to us to really make me say that
it’s just mounting up too much
if yours is the only heart that I can never touch
the only heart that I won’t ever…
Track Name: Mary Gone World
mary gone world

mary
of empires she speaks
your hearts she besieges
she holds out
to the sun and the stars
to fairs of wind-shaken grass
day is dawning
resembling the beauty
in her eyes
while tumbling petals
silently fall in her heart
she sings…

query her heart
as she flees from the hands
that try to claim her
a whistling entrance
to a mary gone world
morning comes
with a lighten sun
on her porcelain skin
his hands to her hair
and the winds set fair
to carry her away

all along i hold on to the secrecy
roll and turn of an endless wave
make believe a restless poetry
keeps a-flaming my heart...
in my heart...
Track Name: Faster Than The Road
faster than the road

faster than the road can take a turn
you sped away, you never learn
leaving everything behind
now what is left of your concern
flying off and out of sight
to somehow make the wrong seem right
never knowing where to stop
and stay and breathe
never to believe

coming in from the rain
pushed my luck there once again
feeling marginally wasted
but found my own incentive plan
much too long i've been on hold
confused a standstill with control
never knowing where to stop
and set and go
never to let show

less an explanation than a thought
the four winds mighty we have fought
huddled up and bore a rage
right out of everything we were taught
pandemonium of dreams
falling apart right at the seams
never knowing where to stop
and think and mean
never being here

faster than the road can take a turn
you sped away, you never learn
leaving everything behind
now what is left of your concern
flying off and out of sight
can sometimes make the wrong seem right
you should know just where to stop
to say the least
where else should i be
what else should i say
if things don't go my way
Track Name: City Of Resurrections
city of resurrections

with the spin of the sun
my mind wanders ally with the song
of a heart once rejoicing
in a city prosper and strong
saw the walls come tumbling down on me
lavishness and treason in everything i see

pervaded by the beguiling presence of thee
(the heart of thee)
the city means now sanguineness to me
(oh to me)
some distant heaven dwell timidly with thee
(the whole of me)
to rise above these remnants once more to see

farewell to the juvenile heart
oh farewell to thee
farewell to the wavering ghosts
residing in me
farewell, farewell
oh farewell to thee
Track Name: The Old Dirt Road
the old dirt road

sun rises over a different man
he'll never be quite the same
a young and handsome kind of boy
living up to a great lie
wraps his mind around this game
but he plays it just the same

his daddy is long gone
his mama just moved on
never tired to pick a fight
living life in his own right
stopped to believe in what he's told
skidding down the ole dirt road

his girl brought trouble on the way
but true to her his heart will always stay
pervades the pride that he upholds
she finds a heart of gold
not to chance the oath they both did swear
keeping the secrets that they share
she's bound to break his heart again
but he loves her just the same
Track Name: Running From The Truth
running from the truth

found the time to open up
solution being at hand
straighten out and make amends
coming in to my defense is you

whatever the cause might be
struck me lost and found
the moment your eyes rest on me
don't look back, don't ever turn around

feels like i'm hanging around
got nothing more to prove
still feels i'm living life
like i'm the only one to choose
step up, head on out
as i'm trying to make my move
if i should move at all
it'll always be i'm
running from the truth

now our world's been up in flames
as we're trying to make our stand
to far off to comprehend
a walk about this barren land with you

with blurry eyes tomorrow comes
a siren every sound
calls you back to all once was
don't look back, don't ever turn around

feels like i'm hanging around
got nothing more to prove
still feels i'm living life
like i'm the only one to choose
step up, head on out
as i'm trying to make my move
if i should move at all
it'll always be i'm
running from the truth
Track Name: Stormclouds
stormclouds

stormclouds coming
pressure me to set things right
the only explanation i can find
can't stop running
bound to race my life away
and nothing in this lot to make me stay
and even if i'd want
well i could never have it any other way

time to push this sentiment
when you feel things
getting a little out of hand
racking it up
putting it all damn straight
with the years being swept
and the hours being late
with your fate being set
and your looks gone bad
you ramble on in this reckless dead end game

hold on honey
we've been through worse than this before
so darling don't you worry anymore
no more sorry
simple thing i'm asking for
just smile at all the troubles at your door
we both know it'll take a while
but if you're running on faith
it'll be the shortest mile

time to push this sentiment
when you feel things
getting a little out of hand
racking it up
putting it all damn straight
with the years being swept
and the hours being late
with your fate being set
and your looks gone bad
you ramble on in this reckless
and you tumble in this pitiless
and you stumble through
your lonely hall of fame
