Wild Horses

3:52

Our full moon has risen meet
me in the sunflower breeze
We will dance to rhythms of
transcendence and love’s heart beat

(chorus)
All our wild horses are running
to the sea breaking from their cages
cleansing from uncertainty
The lies denied to hide the
truth are washing to the shore
Awakening has come to us
and we can hide no more

Meet me in the garden the stars
are finally blossoming the sunset is
landing just above our honey trees

(chorus 2)

Turquoise skies and lucid nights
walking through the fears that hide
Turquoise skies and dream filled nights
waking through the sacred eye
Leading to the place that we
Breaking through the boundary
Breaking through the boundary
of what can no longer be

(chorus 3)

We can hide no more
No more
We can hide no more
No more
We can hide no more
No more
No more

Riven

3:58

Listen to this track on ReverbNation

You know you know you have left
me broken and I know not to be open
ever again those pieces of me have
been thrown back into the earth
Never to be whole again

And how could I be so damn foolish
To think that I was I was different than
the rest of your games and the way you
maneuver your hips ain’t gonna have no affect

(chorus)
I’ve been riven
I’ve been beaten down
I’ve been riven
But this won’t take me down

You were like a disease I had to find
the cure for rehabilitate my endless
addiction to you no there will be no
more begging on my knees
I know I know I will never
love that way again

So many nights I would suffocate
my dreams there was no room for
the two of us to breathe and slowly
I watched myself fading

Lesson In Pride

3:18

You’ve fallen from grace in my eyes
this time weary and tired I can’t even try

You can’t see past the battles you fight
You don’t see how much you lose each time

Forgive me forgiveness I forget how

I can’t see past the battles we fought
I am more than just your lesson in pride

(chorus)
You tried to tame the wild in me
Break down my spirit but I’ve broken free
Thank you now I’m free
I am free I am free

I can’t see past the battles we fought
This was more than just a lesson in pride

(chorus)

You tried to tame the wild in me
Break down my spirit but I’ve broken free
I am free
I am free
I am free
I am free

Wake Up

3:54

Wake up x 4

Wake up those eyes your life is shining bright
Release all those cries don’t leave them all
bottled up down not deep down inside

(chorus)
Let go of Pride
Open up your mind
Breathe with time
Let sunshine be a sign
Be your guide to live and love this life

Wake up wake up those eyes x 2

Wake up those eyes don’t let another
moment pass you by open up
your heart and feel alive

(chorus)

Wake up sleeping child
Wake up sleeping child
Wake up x 4

Loneliness

4:58

I can not sleep at night
Your blood’s running right through my veins
Overpowering my weak soul
And I am lying gaping on the floor
And I am begging asking you for more

Twisted turning me inside out
Bang my head into these walls
Asking the Lord to please forgive
And I am clutching gripping into my skin
And I am drowning deeper inside this sin

And I can’t take this feeling
No I can’t take this feeling
No I can’t take this feeling of

Apathy has taken me
I feel my senses caving in
Clarity is growing dim
Hallucinations flying through the sky
The sun is setting weakening the light

Take my last breath while you can
Take my last breath while you still can

(chorus)

Take me to the peace inside
release me from the fear that hides
take me to the peace inside
release me from the fear that hides
let it just be that I am losing this mind

release me from this crazed addiction
release me from this human condition

(chorus)

Emptiness, Loneliness, Sadness x 2
Give me my happiness (continued…)

Let Go

2:44

I sing this song I have not written
I sing with all that I have left in me
I cried these tears I never noticed
I cried

(chorus)
I have to let you go now go now
I have to let you go now go now
Beam your light another way
I have to let you go now go now
I have to let you go now go now
I have to learn to let those lips leave

All of those words we’ve never
spoken all of those dreams we
never made reality how do I
accept you’ve been taken to
a higher place
where I can not be

(chorus)
i have to learn to say goodbye x 3
goodbye x 3

I have to let you go

Never Let Me Wake

4:18

It’s as if out of a dream you came
to me and I walk around in this
haze this purple daze of you

Has it always been you
In all of these lives I’ve
been wandering to

You’re like a fairytale
coming true a wish I made
one day on a shooting star

Suddenly you appear
More beautiful than
all I had foreseen

(chorus)
If I am still in bed
Lost inside this sleep
If these eyes are closed
Never let them wake
If you I will be without
I don’t want to wake
Never Let Me Wake

You are a lullaby a quiet night
You are the song I sang
through all of time

You’re a miracle to me
A blessing from the skies above

(chorus)

Jon Sneider – trumpet
Kristina Musser – violins

Rainbows

3:58

Time heals everything
Time does heal everything
I’m grateful for clouds and rain
The lightning storms they teach humbleness to me

(chorus)
Rainbows follow thunder
Blossoms follow rain
I am sure this wonder will follow us the same

Love heals everything

Love will always conquer pain
I would not dare change a thing
The darkness teaches us to see blessings that be

(chorus)

sit at peace inside your self and teach yourself to breathe
the miracle inside this life is happiness is free
free

More Than Grey

4:45

Fragmented soft spoken choked up words are all that could escape
this disarming fear I have inside of my heart

giving it just enough to keep you just close enough for just long enough to feel
that this just might be enough for the both of us

one day you woke needing more than grey
but all of my colors had been faded

long before I knew beauty that was you

love impossible you seem to hide I just seem to run
and the sun has been set and the sand has reached the bottom of the jar

one day I woke needing more than grey
but all of our colors had been faded

long before we knew beauty of me and you

scared that you’d become my everything
leaving me no air left to breathe
scared I’d be the one I’d been before
I was scared of me
You make me so scared of me

Long before I knew beauty that was you

Scared that you’d become my everything
Scared that I could never be
Everything that you had dreamed
I’m so scared of me
Too scared of me for this to ever be

Deep Singh – tabla
Jim Nicholson – keys, percussion, strings

My Kind

3:38

Seconds into minutes into hours days
Months since I have seen your face
I never meant for it to be this way

Mountains of your love I climb
Higher and higher these steps of mine
I thought I saw your hands reach down from time to time
I thought I saw a longing in your eyes

I never meant to be the one that took you away from me
You seemed to be my kind
You seemed to be my kind

Your eyes begin to dilate as I walk your way
And I don’t know how to behave I don’t know what can save our love this time

You never meant to be the one that took you away from me
You seemed to be my kind
You seemed to be my kind

Why can’t you be
Why can’t you be
Why can’t you be
My kind

This Old House

4:21

I’ve hung around this old house too long old friend
Dusted off the shelves and replaced the nails with love
Built windows where there needed light
Each one thrown open towards the sky
Now days the sun just won’t shine

The foundation has broken this time
Walls have crumbled there’s nowhere left to hide
Even our garden offers no peace
For you and I

It’s getting dark we’ve done the best we could do
We kept fixing the cracks but the rain pushed right on through
This last flood washed illusion away
This old house only sings the blues these days

These hand these hopes they choose to lie
Damage is all that’s left behind
Our garden’s grown wild despite you and i
Take one last look at the swollen sky
Hold to it’s promise of love’s final cry
Take shelter in memory of the stars tonight

Ballad to an Ideal Lover

5:43

I know it’s too soon to say I love you and that’s my way
I don’t need time I don’t need why
Just kiss me and close your eyes
Just kiss me and say “we’ll try”

Sometimes love comes fast and then it’s gone and we’ve missed it
So let’s live today let the stars align and do what they may
We don’t need time we don’t need how or why
Just kiss me and close your eyes
Kiss me and we’ll see why we don’t even have to try

Chelsea Madrigal – vocals, piano
Jim Nicholson – strings

The Deepest Sea

3:21

Don’t make it so complicated
Kiss me til we’re faded
Melt me into you

Displace me if you mean it
But I’m right here holding you
Let me be your blue

(chorus)
I will be your deepest sea
It’s safe here dive right in
You will be my air to breathe
A safe place I can land

I want to be the one you run to
But darlin take your sweet sweet time
Your heart’s here inside of mine

(chorus x 2)
