Track Name: Catherine
Catherine, you came to me
Late at night, In my dreams
A vision spared, a weeping tree
A deeply held philosophy

On your way, on your way
On your way, go on your way

A prisoner by your own voice
A beauty held, a simple choice
A spinning wheel, a fallen mount
A humbled way by all accounts

On your way, on your way
On your way, go on your way
Track Name: Anyway
In between
Settled lines
Rising up
Undefined

Moving out
Of the space
Where you stood
Anyway

Anyway
You'll find it there

I am here
Every day
Growing old
Turning grey

Going on
Everywhere
Steady change
In the air

Every day
You'll find it there
Track Name: Wide
I feel orange and grey
Light of day hits my eyes
I see distant lands
Spreading fields across the sky

Open wide

Where were you when i walked
Down the green mountainside
Stead of stay and overtook
Flock of birds passed by

Open wide
Track Name: Peace in the Still
Quiet your thoughts
Let your mind go free
Worry not
About what they believe

For in due time
With the dawning day
The sun will set your free
Out upon your way

I had let down
For so many days
That i could not see
The goings and the ways

The truth in the night
The glowing in the stars
The struggle in the fight
Coming from afar

The search for the sight
The breaking of the will
When i finally found
The peace in the still
Track Name: Hesitate
Celebrate
Everywhere
Understate
Lqakeland air

Hesitate
Recognize
Certain fate
In your eyes

It can wait
If you care
Concentrate
With it there

I have gone
Several years
Without love
Without tears

Summer heat
Winter blues
Changing states
Darker hues

It can wait
If you care
Concentrate
With it there
Track Name: Open Port by the Sea
I want to be an open port by the sea
Open to the water and the waves that pass through me
Would you be the steady star that guides and shines on me
As the ocean beats upon the rocks and back to me

I have fought so many wars I can't even count
The weight of which passes by the pound to the ounce
Red as blood and black like a darkened seaside mount
Where everything is upside down the only way is out
Track Name: Places
We will go to places
That we have never been
In our dreams the faces
The ones we've never met

A world then awakened
A forest scene of snow
A calming over taken
And spread upon the old

We will hide in the corners
To the southern lights
The hopes of our fathers
A mother's wish, delight

A path and stream not taken
A flowing open air
A waving not yet able
To follow every where
Track Name: Seed
Meadow north and slipping out
Though the leaves are left behind
Scattered through a dusted cloud
Fallen earth and passed aside

That's the way it falls

Puddled spot you never saw
Gathered where you long to need
Followed nothing left at all
Sewn away a planted seed

That's the way it falls
Track Name: Rose
Shocked by hope and nothing more
I rubbed my feet against the floor
And called your name out in the air
The silence brought back nothing there

Creaking dawn and flashing lights
I had let you from my sight
Crashing storms and open rains
Hear about it in a day

I’ll plant a rose in my garden here
And watch it grow

Up the stairway in the spring
Wait for five until we leave
Hope for love then shrug it off
An absent call it left enough

Chopping blades and hands that take
Riding round in circled breaks
Lot it holds and lot it leaves
Harder on the back than knees

I’ll plant a rose in my garden here
And watch it grow
