Track Name: Dream
I had a dream, but woke with no sound
I recall and revision the blue amongst clouds
If you saw a way to see it again
Would you go back to the place it began?

To quiet lights, the winding road
They fade as I go
The glimmering skyline, beyond what I see
Thoughts through the ether, a single memory

Let the wind drift your mind, wash away all your doubts
Recall and revision the light in the clouds
And if there’s a way to see them again

Would you go back to the place it began?

To quiet lights, the winding road
They fade as I go
The glimmering skyline, beyond what I see
Thoughts through the ether, a memory

Moonlight skin, night keeps my mind wandering
You saw a way to escape what you know
You went away and left me on my own

I’ve given up sleeping, so I dream awake
That maybe you’d come back,
and I’d forgive your mistake

I had a dream, but woke with no sound
I’ll recall and revision in time I allow
I know there’s a way to see you again
But we can’t go back to the place it began
Track Name: Falling Star
I am a falling star of late
Though I am a fool to take the bait

He told me all his stories and I thought I won him all
He called me in all his glory, and I found myself to fall
Tells me put Joni on, “sing to me like you did then,”
Invite me before the night is done again

He told me we are young and free
Free to explore the land and sea

We were lovers who were not in love
making something I’m not sure
But his voice brought me to heaven,
and his touch was warm and pure
I knew that we weren’t set in stone, and I knew it would be her
But he is something that I savoured, that summer

Too swift to hold
Star fades to shadow
And took what was owed
You will reap what you sow

He was a falling star I know
Fleeting moment to come and go
He was a falling star to me
Blink once and he will cease to be
Track Name: Poplar Trees
Poplar trees of amber and gold
Your leaves escape you know
Winter creeps slowly, leaves your branches cold

Frost weighs on you, dust into mold
In winter sun it gleams
Freezing your life it seems that you’re in his hold

And that chill writhes through my brain
And it seeps into my veins
As your hope, it starts to wane
So let it burn, let it burn all through the day

Lights fade as clouds come to play
Nightfall is coming soon
Without the sunlit moon to guide your way

The sky cries for you
A storm is calling
Poplar trees falling wait for morning dew

And that chill writhes through my brain
And it seeps into my veins
As your hope, it starts to wane
So let it burn, let it burn all through the day

Poplar trees begin to bloom
Spring is upon us now
Ice melts and flows into the endless flume
Track Name: Old Shoes
Thoughts broken down, Out of the unknown
Memories found, And you are my bloodstone
Healing now, I can’t believe the time

The train rode through
We ran through the cars, the sky an amber hue
We hardly stopped to look at the view
Now I can't believe the time

And I don't need no money to buy new shoes
Cause "Babe," you said, "These shoes look good on you."
Though these boots are thin and old and worn
These old shoes will get me through the storm

So lay it down, Don't want no more mystery
Take off your crown, But please keep your dignity
We're not bound by the baggage that we own

So would you let me in?
I know we're all equally made of sin
And none of us really feel right in our skin
So trust me when I say

That I don't need no money to buy new shoes
Cause "Babe," you said, "These shoes look good on you."
Though these boots are thin and old and worn
These old shoes will get me through the storm

Though I don't know where these shoes will take me
I'll pick up my feet, running on the cold hard concrete
Though these boots are thin and old and worn
These old shoes will get me through the storm
Track Name: Endless Days
I crossed the bridge to the island where we played
Gathering soil to remind us of yesterday
Ocean breeze that I breathe takes me home
To endless days where we basked in the unknown

Morning will come, please don’t cry
You wanted to catch them in the rye
But our hearts are old and torn into memories of grey
But they beat back to the time of endless days

Sheets of linen blew softly through the sky
Painted scarlet, sun fell heavy from our eyes
Fragrant flowers, passing hours of blooming youth
Endless days are a thing that we outgrew

Another day ends, say goodbye
You wanted to catch them in the rye
But our hearts are old, the memories are all but a haze
Our hearts beat back to the time of endless days

Our days are numbered, our innocence shed
We fell from the cliff, and for so long we’ve bled
Come to a crossroads, and you’re split in two
From where you have been and what you’re meant to do

Meet me back at the island where we played
Spread the soil back to home, and watch it fade
Summer breeze through leaves and through the brae
Takes me back to the time
Takes me back to the time
Take me back to the time of endless days
