Track Name: There You Go
do you recall when we first met
you moved down the hall from my apartment
I saw you outside
you smoke your cigarettes most the time now
I asked you your name but you were silent

but some how...

there you go again with my heart
and you don’t even know as you drive in your car

in the middle of summer went down to the river and jumped right in
its the ocean’s daughter the clear blue water touch my skin

I'm so glad I met you
but can’t believe I let you
get in my head

but our hearts in motion
just like the ocean
filling us in

but there you go again with my heart
you don’t even know as you drive in your car

there you go again with my heart
you don’t even know as you drive in your car
Track Name: Baghdad Ballet School
I thought I saw a shooting star
fly so fast through the night

early in the morning
the sun on my…sand-colored-skin
I see friends in local stores
I drink tea in the park
but the statues bearing swords
remind us who we are

a sudden glow
and all we knew was
this town lit up
like a volcano
this eagle she flies
but her wings are gray
nobody hides from this bird of pray

her parents could that tell from a young age
Aeasera really loved to dance

it was decided to find a teacher
and the one place she could go
were girls could gather round
to practice their moves
the Baghdad Ballet School

a sudden glow
and all we knew was
this town lit up
like a volcano
this eagle she flies
her wings are gray
nobody hides from this bird of pray

yeah nobody hides from this bird of pray
in crimson tide her dreams they all flow away
Aeasera’s asleep face down in the street
nobody hides from this bird of pray
Track Name: Notes
stealing glances across a crowded room
I thought I saw a blue butterfly
floating in the breeze amongst the birds and the bees
though I could not find no words to say

feel it in your bones
love was the enemy
step in from the cold
love was the enemy
passionate flames - the fire in your soul
love was the enemy

in a trance we danced till 3 in the morning
but the sunrise was like fire to our eyes
and these notes that I wrote you with this ball point pen
are all just like a bunch of leaves blowing in the wind
Track Name: Garden
in the Garden that we grew
filled with sticks, stones and Cherry tomatoes
with our feet in the mud
a ladybug and a blind shrew

in the garden that we made
filled with sunshine and yellow daisies
I might just have felt alive
for the first time

I want to dance with you dance with you all night long
you’re the reason I wrote this song
I want to dance with you dance with you till we reach the floor
finally found what we were looking for
a lovely heart with an open door
yeah we finally found what I was looking for

and when the harvest is over
and all of our friends have gone home
despite rain and snow
I want you to know
you are my cookie jar

and when the harvest is finished
and we sit here all alone
from my head to my toes I want you to know
you’re my shooting star

but why’d you have to leave like that
set fire to the spring time the smoke it fills up my mind

but why’d you have to leave like that
in a blaze of glory you were gone by the morning
Track Name: Riptide
you sit on the shelf just like a shooting star
I work real hard and one day I’ll take you home
friday Night I see you down town
at some other store with sliding glass doors
and an old man who says hello

please open your hear now
and find yourself a stranger
start laughing and dancing
feel that we are made from
the same kind of things you felt
walking through the forest
so very far from
these buildings and houses

lets lace up our shoes for a luxurious cruise
send all our woes off to sea
work each day to live in a way
that we saw portrayed on tv
and the kids sit at home
with their video game on
learn to love the screen
as your parents are gone
on the 55th floor
devising some novel scheme
teach the youth to dream

riptide pull me under
so far from this shore
our history lies
beneath these broken streets
where nobody cares anymore
pull me under
pull me under
Track Name: Setting Sun
open your heart
fall to your knees
lets end the fight
which we were inviting

soldiers clash while our
ears keep ringing out
we hide in our basement
while hate pounds the pavement

come on come on come on
whoever you are
you are like a setting sun

come on come one come on
put down the gun
save those skin and bones

I once did dream that I
was living in a movie
where we all got along
better than the kids in school yard did

I once had dreamed that
I could take your hand
and we’d both run away
to a place where the past
don’t let us lend our hearts
to a war machine

I once had dreamed that I could
take back all the things I said
when I was quite mad
I was blinded by a fit
of awful rage

I once had dreamed that
I could take your hand
and we’d both run away
to a place where the past
don’t lead us to hands our hearts
to a war machine
Track Name: Afraid of Love
the night I saw you standing in your blue coat
is was cold outside
I was watching your every move
but you stood like a cocoon

the night I saw you we laid on your blanket
in the warm summer air
but I was watching your every move
watch you rise like a blue balloon

tell me what you want and that is what you'll get
my hear is drowning in my own tears they fall like the snow
you had your reasons for what you did
there was nothing I could have said
your afraid of love, afraid of love
afraid that you might
just fall in love, fall in love
so run from the light

so fly, fly, fly
just like you wanted
like a hummingbird
though secretly haunted by and unseen force
that pulses right through you like a riddlers curse
hidden beneath the surface
of those sullen eyes
morose moons

keep rising until your almost gone
live upon a cumulous cloud
rise above, rise above, rise above, rise above

watering hole
when your mouth runs dry
let those weary lips
set sail tonight
on this dark, dark night

your afraid of love
afraid that you might
just fall in love
so run from the lights
your afraid of love
afraid that you might
just fall in love
Track Name: Little Angel
hey little angel tell me
what you need

hey little angel
go outside
the wind is calling your name

though you can’t hear it calling
know that it cares for you the same

all you need
you’ve got right here
your family and a home
your heart made of gold

on the first day of springtime
I saw an angel
asleep beneath an old oak tree

and when she woke I asked her why
she sat alone
she said
a lot is on my mind

I understand
you feel confused
your little feet
in these mammoth shoes

your brave little heart
with nothing to lose

you mean everything to me
everything to me
you mean everything to me

all you need
you’ve got right here
a family and a home
your heart made of gold

whatever you may need
just hold out your hands
we will be there to fill them up
whatever you may need
Track Name: In the Snow
in the course of our history
do you recall
ever feeling small?
because I did too

looked for things to pick us up
found a turtleneck sweater that fit like a glove
but still kind of lonely
in this silent movie

racing cars
fresh makeup
a cigarette butt
in a plastic cup and
all we see here
is a Hollywood mirror

seeking potions
to prop me up
want to say hello,
but afraid of getting knocked out
this Hollywood mirror
just a brittle veneer

and in these dark days
don't forget to love
your best friend
your neighbor
your lover

and in these dark days
lets not pretend
that movie stars
and fast cars
really matter
hollywood mirror
hollywood mirror

I saw you on your deathbed
the pain in your eyes
showed you had been looking for something
that you'd never found
after so many years
you said one thing was clear
you said please carve on my gravestone
fuck the hollywood mirror

with blurry vision
and very foggy eyes
you told me about a dream you once had
where we sat beneath the purple sky

high up in the mountain
little city below us
we were just like a couple of pebbles
resting in the snow

we were told many things
wishes, hopes and dreams
By a painting on the wall
with the pope, king, and the queen

sit high up in your chair
pretend that you care
as all us pebbles below you
huddle in the cold
