Dream 03:32
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

Falling Star 03:48
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
3.
Poplar Trees 03:42
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

Old Shoes 03:14
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

Endless Days 05:31
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
