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

Easy 03:32
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

I Met You 03:59
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

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

Rules 03:39
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...

Dream It Now 03:27
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
7.
This Night 05:02
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
8.
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
9.
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
