Track Name: Oh, Come and Sing
oh the feather and the bone they glide through the trees
and the shadows on the ground they dance with the leaves
we’ve been working all day just to hear your sweet song
as the sun settles down we feel we belong

after nightfall all is still but you soar between the stars
not a sound in your breast just a song in your heart
til the morning when we wake to your delicate cry
and we know you cant stay but we’ll never know why

oh come and sing bring your feathers down
oh let em fall to the ground

oh the feather and the bone they glide through the trees
and the shadows on the ground they dance with the leaves
we are waiting for your call so we dont feel alone
we are waiting for your call to bring us back home

oh come and sing bring your feathers down
oh come and sing bring your feathers down
oh come and sing bring your feathers down
oh let em fall to the ground
Track Name: Easy
when its easy
its so easy
but when its hard
its so hard, so hard

when its moving
it goes fast
but when we’re standing still
it wont pass, wont pass

get me back to the space where the words just fall right into place
get me back to my mind where the knots unwind and fall with grace
standing here in another time holding on to another line
mother help me to see the way, bring me back there and let me stay

get me back to the edge of the lake on the rocks where it all began
get me back to the wind and sun put the dirt into my hand
let me fall in and out of sight til my thoughts are bright and new
holding out for another taste on my tongue something sweet and true

when its easy
its so easy
but when its hard
its so hard, so hard
Track Name: I Met You
i met you in a photograph... in a customs line... at the baggage
claim...at the breakfast table
i met you under the new moon...in a silent room...on a crowded
bus...in a cold dark cave

when i met you, that’s when i met myself

i met you at the water tower, i met you over some three a.m. chai.
and i wondered what brought us here, and i wondered why
i wondered how would we see ourselves in three months
would we hold our heads up high

oh when i met you, that’s when i met myself

so hello hello to all the things that we share with each other
and hello hello to all the faults that we see in one another
and hello to all the things you say when we just want a little quiet
and hello to all the things you say even when we just don’t buy it

and this is not a love song
but rather thank you all for simply being here
in this time, in this space, in this moment, in this place
where we lift each other up and we hold each other high
and we’re miles away from home, and the days they pass us by

oh when i met you, that’s when i met myself
Track Name: Just Enough Time
ive been watching from the sidelines lately
dreaming my way through my days and my nights
didn’t realize time was passing by so fast

saw a lady with silver hair
passing me by on a bicycle
and though her joints were aching she rode on and on
climbed up the hill to see the view

there's so many things i would do
if i lived til 102 but i’m young, and life is short
gonna take it on every day
like i wouldn’t have it any other way, we have just enough time

oooooooh, oooooooh, oooooooh

i often feel my day slip away
as if the sun just fell right down from the sky
got so caught up in all i had to do and say

but i rarely stop to ask myself
the little peculiar questions lingering inside
sometimes its harder to speak when there's so much unsaid
gotta let it all out now while i can

there's so many things i would do
if i lived til 102 but im young, and life is short
gonna take it on every day
like i wouldnt have it any other way, we have just enough time

oooooooh, oooooooh, oooooooh
Track Name: Rules
you say you know love, but you are just reflecting words you hear
no iron in your veins could give you any sense of pain or fear
it’s just another lie, it’s just another calculation
and when the power’s out we are just another old sensation

this blood keeps me alive, but what is it that runs through you
electricity and wires, dictating everything you do
you tell me that you hear me and all your memories are real
but how do i know you don’t just feel what you’ve been told to feel

we run around the rules...round and round, two by two...

there’s water in your eyes and i know i’m the reason that it’s there
but still i don’t feel bad, because i know that you have more to spare
and just behind your eyes are switches that can turn back on
to clear away today til all your memories are gone

we run around the rules...round and round, two by two...
Track Name: Dream It Now
she wears a gown of grace and courage on the fourth of july
and she holds on to her memories like the tears in her eyes
oh she knows she is home no matter what they decide

so she starts her mornings early making every day count
and she comes home in the evening, keeps her feet on the ground
oh she listens to the words and she makes her sound

oh dream it now, oh dream it now, oh dream it now

just a child when she got here and her mama used to say
there’s a mountain up ahead and we will climb it some day
now she looks out at the view and the clouds fade away

oh dream it now, oh dream it now, oh dream it now

we’re holding on to the dream of what will become
the reverie of what will be

it’ll be, oh dream it now
Track Name: This Night
this is a night, a night to remember
a night to hold on, and never let go
memories are light fleeting romances
swept up and dancing and gone with the show

and i’ll be alright but i’ll never forget this night
and i’ll bring this song with me

we laughed and we cried, we couldn’t believe it
but somehow achieved it, in spite of our fears
eyes open wide, eager and restless
awake and confessing, and counting the years

and i’ll be alright but i’ll never forget this night
and i’ll bring this song with me

time, time won’t always tell
and dust will fall on the shelf
and you, you know me well

so promise me this, you’ll take what i give you
and keep it forever, near to your heart
cause lately i’ve learned that loving completely
truly and sweetly, is our purest art

and i’ll be alright but i’ll never forget this night
and i’ll bring this song with me
Track Name: The Story Starts With You
you had your chance when you were riding in the front seat
you took your turn and held your victory so sweet
but i won’t hold your cape anymore
i wont stand there waiting at your door

he held you in his arms
and handed you the crown
he tried so hard but you
would only let him down
and he won’t chase
your memory for long
he won’t chase it
when he’s moving on

ooh the story starts with you

she sang your songs to me
when i was young and able
but now her sympathy is lying on the table
and i can’t let you stand over me
i can’t let your legacy run free

we took an honest man and made him into nothing
we broke him down to keep him guessing and cussing
but he can’t be a martyr in disguise
he can’t hide the anguish in his eyes

ooh the story starts with you
Track Name: Nashville, Tennessee
i went out to nashville, tennessee
didn’t know what it would have in store for me
but when i got there it set my spirit free
now i’ve fallen deep in love with nashville, tennessee

i called a friend and told her i’d be there
she opened up her home to me without a care and
all her friends were sweet as can be
oh now i’ve fallen deep in love with nashville, tennesse

though i miss my baby back at home
oh and i don’t wanna be a rolling stone
every now and then i guess i need to roam

leavin home can cause a heavy heart
oh and saying my goodbyes is just the hardest part
but i had no idea who i’d meet
and now i’ve fallen deep in love with nashville, tennesse
now i’ve fallen deep in love with nashville, tennessee
