Track Name: where to go
levers
everything around me is a blur
I slow
I feel I'm nothing on my own
oh the circuits blown
my arms are out
lower
level with the sea I get so sick with grief
mountains sprung up in your yard
now the city is hard to stroll
lovely
all the darkest places hide the precious stones
cave womb and sea unassumingly create and hold
really
I can lose my bearings in between the songs
my dizzy summaries
birds that borrow trees and make their presence known
wonder
could you say you thought of me to someone?
I wear contritions frown
and I'll never come around
haven't want to be around anymore
I am
hiding in the basement of my storied soul
I don't know where else to go
where else to go?
no where else to go
Track Name: records back
oh i put my hours in
oh i kept the minutes
i documented it
my experience
now I'm bored with the elements and my own wordiness
I wrote the very last page and i threw the book away
and with hope
you'll never see me again
never see me again
oh i got my records back
oh i got my records back

weather is changing again and my mind is too
now you're always out of state
i'm me minus you

never see me again
never see me again
oh i got my records back
oh i got my records back
Track Name: long island
the city and the ocean
shoulder to shoulder
they lean into each other
at high tide
the city's so effected by the moody sea
you have all the power don't you
said she

wanting for me
I can feel your hands on my shore
reaching for me
leaving all your favorite stones

jealous sand and concrete
you're so seemly free
things float on you
and they move into me
you're always out and about
well I'm happy here
just watching how
the light is changing you my dear

wanting for me
I can feel your hands on my shore
bring me good things
leaving all your favorite stones

call them my own
like they're my own
call them my own
like you're my own
like you're my own
call you my own
Track Name: new wine (70)
all alone

all alone

all we learn on our own

how to use what we know on a dime

in the house no one calls

phone is tethered to a wall

I will throw a record on for old times

in my heart there’s a place

you have come before

how come you don’t come anymore?

this room gets so cold

and I’m scared sometimes

but I’ll be fine

I hold a thought of you in place

and when the earth turns its face

colors ache across an icy sky

bittersweet my old friend

it’s the holidays again

suits me like an outgrown lullaby

though we fit together

love I do know better

then to call another living thing mine

we’re not long here staying

only truth is we’re changing

we decide to erode or shine

clouds will drift away

nothing stays the same

like seeing for first time

a baby’s cry

turns to a grown man’s smile

leaves to lose and find his way

in the end in the end

all our homeless wandering

reveals the grandeur of a heart’s floor plan

now is when it begins to get good if we can

hold each moment like a lovers hand

it will slip away nothing stays the same

the grape lets go of the vine

winter snow makes the water fall

the fruit becomes new wine

all alone all alone

all we learn on our own

what is left after a long hard cry

where are you my old friend

it’s the holidays again

suits me like an outgrown lullaby
Track Name: very last letter
we collect these things for each other
we will get to the coast in the summer
our fierce alliance
oh I hid all my pride in it
your love keeps here
distilled in the silence

locking arms with legs over ledges
we see the light befriending the edges
like there's nothing wrong when there is
oh i hear your voice in my head
you say we will drink all the wine
when you are well in wintertime
defiant hope
in the very last letter you wrote

a new address
one leaving the other
i will get to coast in the summer
like nothing changed but it did
oh I've got your thoughts in my head
and words you'd say in my throat
how you know
you always know
read again
the very last letter you wrote
read again
the very last letter you wrote

could you get a word to me now
could you send me a word somehow
could you get a word to me now
could you send me words somehow
