Track Name: Green & Blue
She's wearing oceans in her hair
She's howling wildly at the moon
She speaks in metaphors in the morning
She smells like tree bark, patchouli
She's wearing music wherever she goes
And when she sleeps she looks just like a child

Every time I think of you
I see green and I see blue
Every time I think of you
I see green and I see blue

She's wearing bells so I can find her
When she goes deep inside herself
When she returns she laughing, yeah she's laughing
She makes me think of tomorrow
She's got these wild, wide child-bearing hips
I just know I wanna, wanna make babies
Track Name: Hair Clip
The broken shell I used to call my home
These empty walls of trust that's abandoned now
The moment comes between what was and white might be
The wayward call of new hope and promises

Your hair clip on the floor
Your picture's on the wall
Love arrives it's time for change
Your hair clip on the floor
Your picture's on the wall
Love arrives it's time for change again

I close my eyes and picture the way things were
I bite my lip and whisper "it's over now"
The irony of lessons known not learned
And I don't know, no I don't know which way I should turn

Your hair clip on the floor
Your picture's on the wall
Love arrives it's time for change
Your hair clip on the floor
Your picture's on the wall
Love arrives it's time for change again

Wading waters. Falling into.
Waiting for your love to wash me
Track Name: Sympathy
Baby's got no money, she says
Baby's got no future, she thinks
She don't want my loving
She only wants my sympathy

Baby's standing naked, she says
You can look right through me, she thinks
She don't want my loving
She only wants my sympathy

I am what I am you are what you are
You're feeling the pain, I'm healing the scar
I'm seizing the reins
You ain't getting my sympathy

Baby's telling lies again
Baby starts to cry again
She don't want my loving
She only wants my sympathy
Track Name: When I Need To
I'll feed your memory
I'll keep it safe and sound
I'll let it cut me when I need to
The past is long dead
It's broken at your feet
I'll bury it deep under my skin

Even now, even now
Even now I feel you
Even now I feel

I'll walk your valley
I'll keep your shadow near
I'll fight my senses with my will
I see your pale ghost
I feel your warm sweet breath
I'll let it cut me when I need to

Even now, even now
Even now I feel you
Even now I feel you
Track Name: Shrine
Don't know why I want you
Don't know why I'd want to
Watch through your window
Don't know if I ought to
You know I really wanna
Speak to you

Late at night when I can't sleep
I think of ways that we could meet
I can call you on the phone
I can see you're all alone

I'm taking pictures of you
Telescopic pictures of you
On my ceiling
I'm taking moments off you
I built a shrine just to you
In my bedroom

Late at night when I can't sleep
I think of ways that we could meet
I can call you on the phone
I can see you're all alone

Don't know why I want you
Don't know why I want you
Are you? Are you? Are you lonely too?
Don't know why I want you
Track Name: Distance
Far away songs and far away eyes
Always distance between us
Of circumstance, time and place there's
Always distance between us

Ghosts of the past play games of chance and circumstance
Pushing, pulling, tugging, tripping me up
And spinning me 'round
Pushing, pulling, tugging, tripping me up
And spinning me 'round

A thought, a dream, a touch across space
Through this distance between us
Your voice on the phone can't take your place. You're
Never here or close for long anyway
Track Name: Paradise Falls
She was born in the bosom of beauty
Where lazy ducks cross the main street
Where the night heavens melt
Into waters still and bright
From the stars to the lake out beyond
And the mountains that hold them
She emerged from the womb of the earth
Into mountains, stars and sky

I want to swim naked with you
At these Paradise Falls
Be cleansed by the cool waters
Of your childhood dreams

I feel my back it's moulded to the earth
Soft here beneath me
And I'm so satisfied
I could die right here beneath this willow
And my body would rest in the sand
Beside this cool mountain stream
And my spirit would rise
Beyond the stars and sing

I want to swim naked with you
At these Paradise Falls
Be cleansed by the cool waters
Of your childhood dreams
