Limbo 03:19
LIMBO I leave a party early I leave alone Too tired Too sober to stay And friends they call to ask me If I’m alright I smile hard Won’t go down that way It’s not like this feeling is new at all Well I’ve heard people say it exists But what kind of emptiness lies ahead If this is the life that I’ve missed I’m in Limbo A non-feeling nothingness of space and time Occasional urges lost down the line If friends call just tell them I’ll be fine I’m in limbo Not thinking just drinking It’s kind of nice Neither in hell nor in paradise Well everything feels like you’ve see it twice I look for a way I can change the pace American regimes of health But purification cannot replace A mind that won’t be with itself It’s not like this feeling is new at all Yes I’ve heard people say Time can heal But what kind of wound have I opted for Where numbness is all I can feel I’m in limbo Not thinking just drinking It’s kind of nice Neither in hell nor in paradise Well everything feels like you’ve see it twice

Happy 02:17
Oh I’m feeling such a happy song Just singing And laughing And playing my day along And oh.. Why don’t you sing along with me Why don’t you sing you’ll see You can be happy You can be happy

What we are is delicate and should be held like tiny birds as we feel it let it go and flutter there What we are is ancient true Held deep within the trees Let the water in to feed us Like musical boxes We lock up our sounds And save them til everyone’s out Imagine the noise we could make with our voices If we let it out If we let it out

Life Is 02:05
Noone can tell you how it was back then Or ever feel it for you But in this moment I’m remembering That day I saw you... From the day we came together Like two birds upon a rock To the moment we discovered We were fragile we were lost So we held each other tightly Too scared to let it go And our flames they burned so brightly We let everybody know Life is painful It is beauty Life is everything we see Life does not bow down to duty Life will bring you no relief And when both of ours are over There’ll be noone left to know How deeply I loved you So I’d better let you know Yes I’d better let you know

At Our Best 01:06
We’re at our best when the shutters come down East or west And the rest We’re at our best when the veils fall away Hey hey hey
7.
Whatever 02:00
Whatever you do I’ll be there Wherever you go I’ll stay Whatever it is you’re thinking It doesn’t have to be that way Whenever the rain keeps falling Whenever you’re lost at sea If ever you feel like calling You can rely on me And when this world seems overcrowded But friendship feels so hard to find Just stop and take one look around and I’ll never be too far behind.

I went to my doctor and to her I said How long will it be doctor I went to my doctor and to her I said How long will it be? She said hold on, hold on These things they will come She said hold on, hold on These things they will come Then I went to my mother to her I cried How long will it be mother ? I went to my mother To her I cried How long will it be She said hold on, hold on These things they will come She said hold on, hold on These things they will come I went to my sister to her I cried How long sister, how long will it be? She said hold on, hold on These things they come to us all She said hold on, hold on These things they will come I went to the children To them I said How long children How long will it be?

Harder than you think To write a song about walking Harder than you think to walk in time

Walk Away 03:47
You can always walk away And you will always find a new place But imagine if you stayed How it could be For a minute A minute or two I felt downcast That same old blue And so I walked My way to beauty That was outside me Well, You can always walk away And you will always find a new place But imagine if you stayed So much can change So much can change So I’m here now Out on this hill And I hear birds sing Oh so still and as the sun sets through the cloud I can see beauty All around And though my heart is Still full of pain A pain it knows And seeks again and again Then I remember That same old story Just walk away just walk away To a another day And this sunset Breaks our hearts As the light bleeds into dark To unknown places And other times We walk away And yet we stay We walk away And yet we stay
