Zephyr 04:37
Blue is the color of comfort Blue is the color of goodbyes Blue is the color we give sadness And blue is where the ocean meets the sky Silver are the waves under the sunlight Silver are the constellation stars Silver is the point to steer your boat by Where silver meets your forest colored eyes And days have all dissolved into the fathoms And Amphitrite swims under bow And love is so much like the fairest weather A zephyr wind is all that you need now A zephyr wind is all that you need now You taught me tying knots and hauling halyards Showed me how to sail into the wind The harmony between the land and water Navigate the discord and make amends And days have all dissolved into the fathoms And Amphitrite swims under bow And love is so much like the fairest weather A zephyr wind is all that you need now And days have all dissolved into the fathoms The far horizon calling to you now And love is so much like the fairest weather A zephyr wind is what you have become A zephyr wind is what you have become Blue is color of comfort Blue is the color of goodbyes

You have to care to understand Broken hearts, they never land Always falling with no ground in sight Searching for an island coast A place to beach your weary boat Betrayed by the tide that pulls you cold and discouraged Just put your heart back in the box And write "return to sender" You can find a new one When your mind comes back around When your mind comes back around It helps to think in metaphor To see the windows as the door But either one works well to make your escape Do you see yourself as a ghost Killed by the ones we love the most Even your shadow knows you've done it to yourself Just put your heart back in the box And write "return to sender" You can find a new one When your mind comes back around When your mind comes back It's so hard And it hurts The pain is always at it's worst When you need Getting over it Just put your heart back in the box And write "return to sender" You can find a new one Just put your heart back in the box And write "return to sender" You can find a new one When your mind comes back around When your mind comes back When your mind comes back around Again.

Minor Stone 03:43
I've lived in Colorado A mile in the sky They're searching for their solitude there And dozing the mountains down I drove to California Looking for some friends Where everyone loves everyone And everyone pretends And it's a lonely road Round this minor stone That I call my home everyday I heard London calling And flew their on a plane Big Smoke ditched compassion Now it's flowing out the Thames I found myself in Capetown Where the wells have all run dry They offered me their last canteen But it was no use while I cried And it's a lonely road Round this minor stone That I call my home everyday And if you defend your heart They will take your world apart It's a fowl empty heart that cheats fair play And it's a lonely road Round this minor stone That I call my home everyday Just looking for a change of heart From those who tear this world apart As the blues and greens we need all turn to gray And it's lonely road Round this minor stone That I call my home everyday And it's a lonely road Round this minor stone That I call my home everyday

Life Goes On 03:37
Life goes on When the creamer has gone spoiled When the coffee's over-boiled Sugar spilling on the floor Life goes on When the rain is pouring down The day you wear your wedding gown And the parson missed his train What could go wrong With such perfect expectations? The only bond is they won't turn out the way you'd planned Doo doo doo doo... Life goes on When your heart has fallen down When the jester steals your crown And kicks you out of your own town Life goes on until your body breaks and then Attempts to come to life again But forgets some parts to send What could go wrong With such perfect expectations? The only bond is it won't work out What could go wrong Believing we can change this Holy march of father time Vinegar back to wine Doo doo doo doo... Life goes on Until it doesn't anymore Sailing out that open door Hope you find that better shore

Secrets that I've kept all to myself I could never tell anyone else These are hard things to believe in Sometimes I can see beyond the edge Now and then 10 days ahead Seems I always know what's coming But don't call it magic Don't say it cannot be explained Don't call it magic If the one you love is magic, all the same Jumping from a rooftop It's a new moon dark that hides me And the streetlights won't ignite me If I'm flying high enough Secrets that you've kept all to yourself About your struggle, about your health And I'm a fool who wonders why I couldn't see this coming So don't call it magic Don't say it cannot be explained When the one you love is magic The gift we had, it was ideal The look you give me, the way you feel Don't call it magic, call it real But don't call it magic Don't say it cannot be explained Don't call it magic If the one you love is magic Don't call it magic Don't say it cannot be explained Don't call it magic If the one you love is magic

How many years have we been away? We left when the cities were covered in flames The last of the missiles were crossing the skies Rockets for teeth, and flash burns for eyes. How many ages did we search out in space, For water and air, and a rock to embrace? But lightyears were empty out between all the stars After searching so long and roaming so far So what is it worth, This solitary Earth, Earth? Landing in green hills we opened the doors No sign could be seen of our ancestors before Just forest as far as the eyes could believe And the absence of humans for a thousand years So what is it worth This solitary Earth, Earth? The water the trees and the stone The blood and the muscle and bone So what is it worth This solitary Earth, Earth?

Luminism 04:13
We found the land in luminism Up here on this hill Absorbing Summer colors With moody eyes to fill A gift to make you happy Jonquil in your bouquet And as I learn to paint you I get out of my own way I get out of my own way Ooooo.... We waited for the fireflies To spark along trees We settled in the long grass That put our minds to ease We searched the sky for planets That wheeled above our heads Weighed in about the cosmos Until words could not express Until the words could not express yeah

Forever Home 04:24
Memories Recalling love and all your better days with me When relating was a journey to the harbor’s edge To watch the ships come in. Now the weather’s changed And I can only speak and hope you hear me now I’m not sure what kept me from the words I’d say I still wish I could explain But you’re not here You’ve sailed on You’re out to sea And forever home Forever home Below a star A sail where the ocean meets the far off sky Storms that tried to knock you down and make you cry They’re all behind you now `Cause you’re not here You’re sailing on You’re out to sea And forever home Beyond our reach Beyond the sound Too far to see But not to love Forever home Bridge: A looking glass To watch over everyone Call up a zephyr With the sea birds in the sun And turn the stars To the course that steers us home `Cause you’re not here You’re sailing on You’re out to sea And forever home Beyond our reach Beyond the sound Too far to see But not to love Forever home

Blandford 04:51
This is our space Where we meet face to face In the smell of the lilacs in Springtime A return to the realm of the divine In this overdue dance We’re increasing the chance A hummingbird might show us her wingspan As she lands in the palm of your left hand, yeah This is our place Healing our pains In the smell of a warm Summer rain Feeling brave as bear once again From the bench by the pond And the meadow beyond See that hummingbird is making her rounds And she never even touches the ground Of Blandford This is our time It was lonesome to find The smell of the sweet autumn leaves When you had other places with needs I remember that day I went, but you had to stay So I called you from the old owl cage But the owl had nothing say From Blandford Bridge: A turn in the trail, And a bridge with a rail Where I carved our initials last year And there’s a bend in the stream Where we keep all our dreams That we share every time we come here To Blandford This is our life And you are my wife And the smell of pinewood smoke’s in the air The sun is setting but we really don't care So many miles to go on this path in the snow And your snowshoes are still under your chair But we always find our way there To Blandford To Blandford To Blandford (Rays of sunlight come down through the trees, and something comes alive between you and me).
