Track Name: Carnival
Take me to the Carnival
Rides as high as sparrows
Hope with me they peak and float above the tree brocades

Guide me through the crowd kings
Orchestral alchemy
Grab my hips and dance with me
No matter of the scene

Lose yourself it’s ok
Welcome curiosity
Inch by inch investigate
And take your time with me

Now you just up’d the ante
Crossed the bridge down to the stream
Wallow in the nights drink
And linger here with me

I’m flying so high
I can’t catch myself
But I can feel a mad love is on the rise
Yeah I’m flying so high
I can’t catch myself
But I can feel a mad love is on the rise

Yeah I’m flying so high
I can’t catch myself
But I can feel a mad love is on
Track Name: Harpswell Sound
Deep swells of blue and grey
Slap and howl their way
Cold rush the houses
A shelled slave’s fate
Then they heave and pace
They heave and pace
They heave and pace, they heave and pace

Slip back, slap attack again
Another shape, with another face
They heave and pace
They heave and pace
They heave and pace

In an envelope of space to clear
Leaves time and spine to wind its way
To a heave, a pace, a sleeve of faith
That everything, yeah, that’s everything will change
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah

And in the name of swallow and regurgitation
It alleviates, moves place to place
Face to face she shifts her weight
Pulls the longing out from under the blue and the grey

And when a rogue from nowhere pummels will you sell your
soul or metamorphosis the low blows, the glows, the flows
Allow emotions to polar oppose
Lions in uniform
A Lion in a uniform
Makes such little sense… but I’ll tell you…

Nothing I've had compares lover
Nothing I've ever had compares
Nothing I've had compares lover
Nothing I've had compares

Nothing I've ever had compares
Nothing I've had compares lover
Nothing I've ever had compares
Nothing I've had compares

Nothing I've had compares lover
Nothing I've ever had compares
Nothing I've ever had compares
Nothing I've had compares
Track Name: Don't Move
No one move
Don’t stir the mud
I’ve lost my heart
I’ve lost my love
And I’m moving without him

Show your faces
Clear your name
Make this count
And make this sane
We’re not leaving without you

All for one
And one for all
Know your rights
And right your wrongs
There ain’t no peace in hiding

No

I want not to want a thing
Not one thing, no not one thing, from you
And if a once could avoid a twice
And a head erase a night
And a trice avoid a splice
Try me, try me, Try me…

But don’t you move
Now don’t stir the mud
I’ve lost my heart
I’ve lost my love
And I’m not leaving with out him
No darlin’

No…
Track Name: Prout's Neck
As foreign as a stranger’s kiss
You have this, you have this
As unrecognizable as it appears you know
You know

What will come, will come
Will also go, also go
It’s just one, just one form of many forms
And forms like snow won’t hold their cold

Bite your nails, bite your lips, hold your tongue
But none of this will show her what she’s longing for
What was strong once was not
It’s been hemmed and hawed over carefully like a crow’s caw

Hear that story rounding about as if it could hollow out
Breakwaters mixing the Prout’s Neck
Home of the winds, low tied and the canvas home
Home

You have this,
You have this,
As unrecognizable as it may a
You have this,
You have this,
You know
(x2)
Track Name: YesLove
Yes love, yes love I see the wild wonders of your world
Tell me have you found anything better than knowing that more will be revealed

Now, don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
No, don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

Yes love, yes love I see you pondering, polishing every angle
Tell me, tell me
Hold nothing back from me
Tell me that more will be revealed

Now, no, don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
No, don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
No, no

It’s the little things
It’s the little things
It’s the little things
When there’s no denying
The hand deliveries….

Now, don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
No, don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
No, no
Track Name: Flocks
With a little time
And a little resilience
When the flocks fly back north again
And the trillium shows their dirty heads
Will you call it?

If this isn’t a crime
Then it’s the mirror image
Loneliness and the ripple effects
Leak this into the wrong hands
It’s murder

Orphan tide
Reveals her true intention
Loneliness and the ripple effects
Leak this into the wrong hands
It’s murder
Track Name: End On A Pillow
I have tried, hard now, to love you
But you’ve tried even harder to stop me
So I’ve tried even harder now, love, to hate you
But you triple your sweet talk and make me believe

That I’ve seen the light through the trees of the forest bend
To the breaking point then snap like a prism
Just like I bend for you

And I’ve had reefs of coral from the belly of the ocean
Trigger grief and quarrels from the pit of my stomach
I’ve seen rushing current from the floor of the river
So why can’t I see all of you

You…

I have written you letters and mailed them through trash
cans
Walked the soles off of my shoes to the city’s grid
So why can’t I rid…

You…

Yes it’s true love, now what you gonna do about it
Old predictable, stop drop out and roll like a fiend
Aren’t you tired of this little dance we do
Aren’t you tired
I’m so tired
Track Name: Sweet Water
It’s the summer to get down to the nitty gritty
The pressure’s hot on our trail
We’ve got to get it together

Rolling around in your head
Can’t keep a thought
Or make it disappear
When love’s not gone bad but it’s not ripe
And being a gypsy…

When the sensitive stokes your fire
And we cross the line from peacekeepers to warriors
Just as the curtain parts and the haze

One may sing out loud
One may hit the skins
One may pluck a chord
One may blow air in it
No matter what you’re playing
Now come together, come together

And when your wells run dry
I’ll take your tears
I’ll ring them out
I’ll rinse them sheer
Collect some nectar for you
Get down to the bottom
And bring you
Your sweet water
Track Name: Nine
Paper cranes and metal birds
Flight risks heavy burdens
And it wouldn’t be so bad
If I didn’t have a heart
To rattle, rattle, rattle in its cage

I’ve got two hands
And two limbs
Two eyes
On two paths
But just one heart to split
Yes just one lone heart to split

If you knew, my dear
If you only knew

If you knew how much I adore you
You’d not fuss, you’d not fight me my dear
If you knew how much I adore you
You’d let me go and you’d know that I’d return

Come, come
Come here
Ohhhhhh
IV, IV, IV

Now, now
Now just calm down
Now, now
Calm down
