WILD HARE

SILVER WOOD

Swimmer swims
When the day begins
And the waves come 'round to see

Afternoon
Waitin' on the moon
To come up from the trees

Slow, steady as she goes
Breathing, believing
Silver Wood

Star shooting
In the heart of night
Like an angel with a bow

Astronaut
In his satellite
Looking down on us below

Slow, steady as she goes
Breathing, believing
Silver Wood

All your life, looking for some place to fall
Somewhere to call - home

TIME TO BREATHE

Raise your head from the foot of the bed
Hope you've forgotten things that I said
Morning last, I'll clean up the glass
Sun behind curtains shining like brass

You need time to breathe
I believe that's a sign I can read
I'm alone, it feels like home
I believe that's a sign

Cut my chin shaving again
Red water swirling down the drain
No cure for me, lycanthropy
If I keep pretending you'll never see

You need time to breathe
I believe that's a sign I can read
I'm alone, it feels like home
I believe that's a sign

YOU'RE A GARDEN

Don't you forget
To feel the rain
To let the sun
Ease the pain
Learn from the vine
Take your time
And you'll weave
A tapestry

Remember to
Seize the day
Sweep the stones
That show the way
Where you pulled the weeds
And planted seeds
Soon you're gonna be
Who you want to see

You're a garden

Overgrowth
Holding back the stream
Put in your hands
Make the water clean
Be present in your mind
There's always time
To lose the bull
Be beautiful

You're a garden



DIAMOND AND SNOW

You don't feel like diamond
You feel like snow
When it's time you'll be leavin'
You don't know how not to go

I saw a countryside
Reflected in your eyes
A beautiful creature waiting
To take to the sky

And I know
I can't follow
And you've got to grow
I need a diamond
And you feel like snow

You feel like a zephyr
You don't feel like home
You wanna be with the grass and sea
And not this flesh and bone

You can't hold forever
In the palm of your hand
No matter what you tell me
There's a line in the sand

And I know
I can't follow
The way to me is closed
I need a diamond
And you feel like snow

LOVE COMES IN WAVES

It's always darkest
Right before the gone
And you don't even know if
You've got the strength to carry on

There's always a question
Comes 'round time to time
You can push it to the shadows
You can't keep it from your mind

Yours might be, the life you save
If you can just remember
Love comes in waves
Love comes in waves

When the years have left you
Behind a strangers door
The dream that you wanted
Doesn't want you anymore

That time when you turned left
When you should have made a right
And there aren't any angels
In this cold, dark night

Yours might be, the life you save
If you can just remember
Love comes in waves
Love comes in waves

Yours might be, the life you save
If you can just remember
Love comes in waves...

Is there anybody out there
Is there anybody listening
Are there ears on the airwaves
To receive this transmission

Is there anybody out there
Is there anybody listening
It's not the end of the movie
It's just an intermission


Love comes in waves
Love comes in waves

FOLLOWING A FALLING STAR

Should've known better
Than to bet against Heaven
Rollin' them bones
Snake eyes and sevens

When you're following a falling star
You don't worry 'bout the weather
When you're following a falling star

Love will make you cruel
Make you change your direction
Make you bend every rule
And forget every lesson

When you're following a falling star

You don't worry 'bout the weather
When you're following a falling star

INSIDE

I don't mind thinking 'bout time
But some people won't let it go
I'm a young man in my mind
And one day you're gonna know

The body ain't the soul
And the mind will come and go
Though the years may ebb and flow
There's a light, inside

When I was young they told me I
Saw the world through ancient eyes
And the words I used held the sting of truth
And a wisdom my face belies

But, the body ain't the soul
And the mind will come and go
Though the years may ebb and flow

There's a light, inside

Kaleidoscope spins, the fanfare begins
And the carnival's back in town
The Blue Parade is starting to fade
Still searching for the perfect sound


'Cause, the body ain't the soul
And the mind will come and go
T
hough the years may ebb and flow
There's a light, inside


UP IN YOUR MIND
 

Holes in the time line
See what you want to see
Just looking for yourself
When you look at me

 

Can't write a story
From just one picture
Can't pull a molecule
Out of the mixture

 

You're making me up in your mind
 

Adjust your vision 
Another story shows
You're squeezing me into
Somebody else's clothes

 

You can't write a story
From just one picture
Can't pull a molecule
Out of the mixture

 

You're making me up in your mind
 

Is it all out there?
Tell me what you perceive
Or just a hologram
You'd like to believe

 

Look at my Facebook
What do you see there?
A dummy smiling
Glasses and long hair

 

You're making me up in your mind
 

ELSEWHERE
 

I'm going Elsewhere
Where the world won't trouble me
Where the wind and the rain
Will set my spirit free

 

I'll ride the Lonely Pony
Wishing the past good bye
Loose my lasso from lost lovers
Let the tumbleweeds roll by

 

I'm going Elsewhere
 

I've had enough rough living
Ain't it tough when your stuck in a rut
And the hive's alive like a seaside dive
And you feel like taking your cut


And going Elsewhere
 

No more lies, just empty skies
Nothing to weigh you down
Dump the bin and start again
Don't know just where I'm bound


But I'm going Elsewhere
 


I'VE HAD TO LEARN HOW TO SAY GOODBYE

All the minutes pass away
Shadows lunge then fade
We've seen so much come and go
And what a brilliant mess we've made

Sometimes we held each other up
Or were we falling down
Holding on, for what it's worth
It was better with you around

I've had to learn how to say goodbye
I've had to learn how to say goodbye

The moments I remember
The iridescent dreams
All the wants and could-have-beens
And what it all might mean

Seashells on the shoreline
They go out with the tide
Many good things disappear
Make their way to the other side

I've had to learn how to say goodbye
I've had to learn how to say goodbye

I'll miss your sweetness most of all
And the faces  loved and lost
To the white hand or the ticking clock
Or from wires having crossed

I've had to learn how to say goodbye
I've had to learn how to say goodbye

MAJOR KEY

 

Play guitar
That's who we are
As the kids go by
We're glued to the radio

 

Awkward hair
Never here but there
Home ain't home
Hit the warehouse row

 

I want the world to be
In a major key
But it's hard when life before
Was all in minor chords

 

Striking out
What's love about
It felt so strong
Always too late or too soon

 

Drink your lunch
Hey, this ain't the Brady Bunch
Can't wait to play
Out of touch and out of tune

 

I want the world to be
In a major key
But it's hard when life before
Was all in minor chords

 

Friend of mine
I guess we had our time
Chasing those early dreams
Never to bend or bow

 

I promised you
We were gonna see it through
I've been late for rehearsal
For so long now

 

I want the world to be
In a major key
But it's hard when life before
Was all in minor chords

NAOMI OF PEARL ISLAND

When I'm dyin'
I'll see Naomi of Pearl Island
Once again
My dearest friend
We'll go flyin'
Through endless rooms
And sighing blooms
Hand in hand
Hand in hand

Always smilin'
Naomi of Pearl Island
In the end
In the end
All the while I'm
Hangin' on
To the fading gong
And grains of sand
Grains of sand

When the dream completes it's run
And all the ties have come undone
I believe she'll be the one
To guide me

When I'm dyin'

I'll see Naomi of Pearl Island
Once again
My dearest friend
We'll go flyin'
Through endless rooms
And sighing blooms
Hand in hand
Hand in hand
