Track Name: Gaze
from the soil brown in your eyes
i saw the world reborn
in hyacinths and alliums and trees for the birds
the oldest water flushed my veins

so pale cold with anticipation
like a solemn white tiger standing

she spoke:

"you are the sun and i am the land
and tiger on me you do stand

feel the earth on your claws?
and the wind at your fur?
i am the twilight for which you howl"
Track Name: Thee O Laurel My Hair
tell me how to play it baby
don't play any games with me
tell me how to feel it baby
tell me what you need

tell me how to see it baby
tell me how high you feel
tell me how deeps your water
when you think of swimming?

tell me I'm a river baby
flowing straight for your sea
we'll meet at the mouth of old waters
running deep and dark and free

i met you on the bridge of some sort of breakdown
listening to the still in my houses quiet sounds
but your laughter broke the echo i was trapped in
you skipped stones across the pond of my reflection
you took your purple color and you spread them around my room
and everything felt so dizzy and new
the dead left impressions on the spaces where i was
i was breaking out to something somewhere with you i was

With you
life felt new
Track Name: Ride Me Down
i've got nothing but my feet
these hoofs and heals and knees

you crocheted winter riding gloves
bought a brand new saddlebelt
to you lay yourself on top of me

carry carry me swift feet
carry carry all her needs

well you're imagination made of me a wild wild horse
well if you can't tame me why don't you just ride me into town

and you weaved a purple muzzle to me
you said it made my dark eyes seem
darker then the seas
framed in your burgundy

carry carry all she needs

well you're imagination made of me a wild wild horse
well if you can't tame me why don't you just ride me into town
Track Name: Follow the Road
follow the road
you'll be on my side
wherever we go
we do it up right

follow the road
come down my way
i think you already know so
it's safe to say

i've got nothing but overflow
hey i've got light and love
i haven't felt the same since i saw you first

follow the road
you'll be on my side
wherever we go
we'll do it up right
Track Name: Pas de Cheval
tipped you like a teapot
an arabesque kettle spilling to the floor
now a chassé,
moving sideways,
not the pas de chevel
that we danced before

tipsy, too much whiskey
just as the pas de trios is to begin
this is dressage
dancing for love

i'll pour you here and leave you there
while you're steeping
dance with me
waltz with me
one, two, three
i'm gone
pour you here leave you there
yes i am leaving
dance with me
one last pas de chevel then i'm gone
Track Name: The Tiger and the Cave
the presence of the cave
drives me insane
drives me insane

the sunlight through my shades
begs me to change
drives me insane

the hours of the day
all die one way
drives me insane

this loneliness its great
it plays it sage
its endless grace

...I want more

the sun outside my cave
begs me to change
drives me insane

this tiger's hungry gaze
watches her nape
she's never safe
Track Name: Olivia, OH
I hope I'm almost home
back from Olivia, OH
a broken plate
a broken soul
I'm out the door
without another door
oh no

Hope, is almost gone
Olivia, OH
Amee took me by the nose
and she lead the way back home

I'll find my owl heart
and I'll find the way back home, Amee Mehta
Track Name: Out in the Park
we jumped from heights out in the park
we wore the sky down to its dark

maybe we were just wasting time
but i can't help but feel excited
maybe we were just having fun
but maybe i love you

i'm like a child with you i feel so new

we lived outside out in the park
you were a child inside my heart

maybe we were just wasting time
but i can't help but feel excited
maybe we were just having fun
but maybe i love you

i'm like a child with you i feel so new
Track Name: O Orpheus Singing
we found death in nature walks outside
the summer air became the very secret of life
i was breathing in you were breathing out
in those moments i knew how i felt

we found faith beneath nature's disguise
you there in the grass gave me awareness of life
the world their was endlessly full
i never knew how happy i am

we all need something to rely on
so let it be that i walk you home
we all need a shoulder to cry on
and these arms won't tire of holding you
i just want something i'd die for
and i see the eternal in you

we found love beneath her meaningless disguise
we found their was no deeper secret hidden in her eyes
and the world their felt endlessly full
i never knew how happy i am

we all need something to rely on
so let it be that i walk you home
we all need a shoulder to cry on
and these arms won't tire of holding you
my hands their quick and true
i just want something i'd die for
and i see the eternal in you
