Track Name: Tapestry
I need to remember to let go
From time to time
'Cause you'll remember to let love grow
In your mind

Planting seeds in your chest
Leaving the rest behind
Feel the beating in your breast
Left for me to find

'Cause our love is like an ocean
Full of infinite space
Filled with emotions
When I see your face
Through thoughts and commotion
I'll wait patiently
To be the reflection
Of the love you see

Spoke the truth and you opened up
Before my eyes
I want just to drink from your cup
And float into bluer skies

Planting seeds in your chest
Leaving the rest behind
Feel the beating in your breast
Left for me to find

'Cause our spirits are woven
In this tapestry
I can hear their whispers
From the tops of the trees
They know who you have chosen
If meant to be
The reflection
Of the love you see

You know love is all I can give
So go where your heart goes
Free is how I want you to live
Just riding the river's flow

Your roots grow deep down in my chest
Leaving the rest behind
Feel the beating in my breast
Left for you to find

'Cause this love is like an ocean
Full of infinite space
Filling with emotions
When I see your face
Through thoughts and commotion
I'll wait patiently
You are Wisdom
It's so true to me
To be the reflection
Of the love you see
Track Name: Black & White
You keep changing shapes like a cloud
I'm not allowed to change your mind
Or turn you into things I think I see
I have to let you loose from these chains
But I know it's now the same without you baby

You're out of sight, not black and white
Strung up tight like gift wrapping, when I want it to happen
You stuck inside just black and white
I'm not gonna fight to see you laughing
Just gonna let it happen
'Cause I know you're falling right into me
Track Name: Life is just a Road
Isn't it strange when you feel like you're stuck in mid air?
You have to rearrange the space that's left to spare
And I understand that you're loving another man
It may be hard but I'll do the best I can

Life is just a road
Maybe I'll never figure out where it goes
But I know that I'll get there
Given time, this I know

Started to speak but you didn't know I was there
I still seek what I know in my heart is so rare
Didn't go as planned, still I opened up my hands
It's enough just to see you smiling

Life is just a road
Maybe I'll never figure out where it goes
But I know that I'll get there
Given time, this I know

Life is just a road
Maybe I'll never figure out where it goes
But I know that I'll get there
Given time, this I know
Track Name: Raccoon or Raccoon Dog
Raccoon or raccoon dog, when will we ever learn?
Raccoon or raccoon dog, when will we ever learn?
Some say you gotta touch the flame just to feel the burn

I got a sweet sweet woman but she won't listen to me at all
I got a sweet sweet woman but don't hear me at all
She don't take nobody's orders, she don't answer my calls

Well I'm swimming in sunlight, I don't even know where I've been
Well I'm swimming in sunlight, don't even care where I'm going
Ever since you opened you eyes baby sunlight is all I've seen

Raccoon or raccoon dog, when will we ever learn?
Raccoon or raccoon dog, when will we ever learn?
Some say you gotta touch the flame just to feel the burn

Someday I'll realize what it is I didn't do
Someday I'll realize what I meant to you
Though I think I have a clue

You can find me under the covers where I spend most my days
You can find me under the covers where I spend most my days
I ain't got much to do, ain't got nothing to say

Got these waking nightmares, can't be put at ease
I got these waking nightmares, can't be put at ease
Won't you free me from these shackles, may I be released?

Someday I'll realize what it is I didn't do
Someday I'll realize what I meant to you
Though I think I have a clue

Raccoon or raccoon dog, when will we ever learn?
Raccoon or raccoon dog, when will we ever learn?
Some say you gotta touch the flame just to feel the burn
Track Name: Like Sand
My heart was in your hand
It was under your command
And you let it slip away like sand
You let it slip away like sand

Water stretches thin
Over the stories in your skin
Girl you're making my head spin
Girl you're making my head spin

The moonlight strokes your sheets
And the warm air underneath
Girl are you lying through your teeth?
Girl are you lying through your teeth?
(I don't know)

But I never did find
Any kind of warning sign
Girl are you leaving me behind?
I know you're leaving me behind
(I don't mind)
Track Name: To No One
I don't always know the places you've been
Well I just grin
I know you'll be fine with or without me

I don't always know the places you've been
But I'll let you in
I'll try to show you how we could be

Someday I'll feel the ground
I'm just lifted by this love I've found
And you owe it to no one
Just like these colors in the setting sun
Give it to yourself

I can't always hear you from far away
Well here I lay
I will wait for you to catch up

I can't always listen to what I say
To my dismay
I know that I think too much

Someday I'll feel the ground
I'm just lifted by this love I've found
And you owe it to no one
Just like these colors in the setting sun
Give it to yourself

Someday I'll have a choice
Captivated by your sweet sweet voice
But you owe it to no one
Just like these colors in the setting sun
Give it to yourself

Someday I'll feel the ground
I'm just lifted by this love I've found
And you owe it to no one
Just like them colors in the setting sun
Give it to yourself
Track Name: Not Like Him (feat. Claire Edmonds)
Keep me in your clothes tonight
Not everybody know it's right
I don't look like him, not one bit
But you know that enough to make me quit for your love

If it's not me it's him, I'd rather sink than swim
Now that I've said my say
Should I wait another day
And wash my dreams away?

Hold me in your thoughts tonight
Honey I don't know if it's right
I'm just waiting for my luck to turn around
Searching for a sight or a sound of your love

If it's not me it's him, I'd rather sink than swim
(If it's him I'd rather sink than swim)
Now that I've said my say
(Now, now that I've said please stay)
Should I wait another day
And wash my dreams away?
Track Name: Dying Flame
Springtime came then left me in smoke
Drinking clouds, guess I was far from reach
Turning red with every word I spoke
Sighing slowly on that empty beach

Now I see
I ain't ever going back to those days
I'm amazed
You showed me to embrace what is now

Someday I will look back and hit replay
But until then girl, all we got is today
So won't you give it what you got, and I'll do the same
'Cause living in hell ain't easy, when you're just a dying flame

I searched for you in so many souls
And in the bottom of a bottle
Oh how I managed to crawl out of those holes
Back then it seemed impossible

Now I see
I ain't ever going back to those days
I'm amazed
You showed me to embrace here and now

Someday I will look back and hit replay
But until then girl, all we got is today
So won't you give it what you got, and I'll do the same
'Cause living in hell ain't easy, when you're just a dying flame

Someday I will look back and hit replay
But until then girl, all we got is today
So won't you give it what you got, and I'll do the same
'Cause living in hell ain't easy, when you're just a dying flame

Someday I will look back and hit replay
But until then girl, all we got is today
So won't you give it what you got, and I'll do the same
'Cause living in hell ain't easy
Living in hell ain't easy
Living, hell, it ain't easy when you're just a dying flame
Track Name: Heaven Knows
Evening, spirits shouting
Blue skies are turning violet
Heartbreak, tears are spouting
And the answers under your eyelids

Heaven knows I'll love you
Through wind and through rain
Whoever you hold I'll love you
How can I explain?

Heaven know's I'll knows I'll love you
Through wind and through rain

Heaven knows I'll love you
Noah knows I'll love you

There's no use in trying to catch you
Wandering through our dreamscapes
I've already attached you
There's no way we could escape

Heaven knows I'll love you
Through wind and through rain
Whoever you hold I'll love you
How can I explain?

Heaven knows I'll love you
Heaven knows I'll love you
Noah knows I'll love you
Track Name: Waterfalls
You were all I had to hold
Even though I never did
I cut the ropes off your wrists
And I let you go

Your hands started to unfold
But like a frightened child you hid
I lost you in the fog
Far down below

So scared you'd be gone for good
'Cause I love you like no other could (x4)

Moments before it came out
I just bottled up inside
Til waterfalls flowed down
Through your eardrums

Then I knew without a doubt
That your mind had been corrupt
But I'll follow you through this maze
With every strum

So scared to let you be
I was sure you were leaving me (x4)

You were all I had to keep
Lost somewhere dark and deep
But oh you go
You go where you please
Underground or high above the trees
I'm still here upon my knees
Oh you go where you please

You were all I had to hide
Locked somewhere safe inside
But oh you go
You go where you please
Underground or high above the trees
I'm still down on earth on my knees
Oh you go where you please
O waterfalls carry you where you please
O waterfalls bring you where you please
O waterfalls bring you ease
