Track Name: Born Without The Words
Oh my God
I feel it in my blood
The warming of the winter
The coming of the flood

Springtime’s song
Born without the words
Waiting for a flower
Longing to be heard

Pushing it’s way out of the ground
Born Without The Words

Feelings too old to die young now

You can live your whole life in want
Comparing to another
As something that you’re not
Or you can fill the space that you’ve been given
The space that was made for you
You and no one else

Pushing my way out of the ground
I’m ready for it
I’ve grown too old to die young now
I’m better for it

Born without the words
Waiting for a flower
Longing to be heard
Track Name: Keep Moving Brother, Keep Moving Sister
Keep Moving Brother, Keep Moving Sister

I’m determined to change
I mark the corner but I’m turning the page
To the sound of your voice
Like a distant star, my love

And I don’t care what they say
I mark the corner but I’m turning the page
To the sound of your voice
Like a distant star, my love

Keep moving brother
Keep moving sister

I consider my name
The one I’m given and the one I became
And the difference between
Hangs inside the stars my love

I played out every cliché
I’ve been a house not a home as they say
And I can’t do it anymore
I won’t do it anymore my love

Keep moving brother
Keep moving sister

I’m determined to change
Track Name: Constant Muse
Constant Muse

Is my mind at ease or am I jaded?
Has the brightest color in me faded?
Have the simplest things been complicated
In a song?

I was just nineteen when all this started
I was sun burned skin and open hearted
I was hometown proud, tucked in, and parted
In a song

In my dreams I’m wide awake
And I always have exactly what it takes

Oh, my constant muse
I have pinned my life on you
Chasing words and every mood
Into song

In my dreams I’m wide awake
And I always have exactly what it takes
In my dreams I’m wide awake
And I always know exactly what to say

Oh, my constant muse
I have pinned my life on you
Chasing words and every mood
Into song

Is my mind at ease or am I jaded?
Track Name: Made Out For This
Made Out For This

You could be whatever you want
But I know that you’re feeling older
And I can do whatever I want
If you’re looking across my shoulders

What if I’m just not made out for this?

I follow the light as it moves
I’m still making my way back to the river
Where I can fill my cup until its full
And lay my body down under the water

What if I’m just not made out for this?
Track Name: Let Go A Little
Let Go A Little

I was in my garden
Water pouring from my hands
I turned around and there you stood
You were transparent and you said,

“Why are you so precious about everything?
Let go a little.”
Track Name: Take More Than You Need
Take More Than You Need

Wait with me for just a while
When the water in me dries

Stay with me all afternoon
When the spirit in me moves

If you’re lying awake
With a lifetime to go
And the thoughts that you take with you
Take more than you know

There… where you build your house of prayer
Thoughts that tangle in your hair
While the world around you stares

If you’re lying awake
With my hands on your waist
Wondering what you can take from me
Take more than you need

I’m not long for this world, baby
So much just fell miles behind me

I don’t long for this world baby
Half a life fell miles behind me
Track Name: Right Behind You
Right Behind You

April takes the hill, I follow
Moments after
All across the park, the sound of
Children’s laughter
I don’t see the point in waiting
Half my life to say
All of the things I’m thinking
Each and every day

I’m right behind you now
Right behind you now

When your hair falls down and over
Both your shoulders
My eyes trace the lines of your neck
And forever
I don’t see the point in waiting
Half my life to say
All of the things I’m thinking
Starting with today

I’m right behind you now
Right behind you now

You have a brilliant mind
I follow right behind you

It’s good to keep your hope alive
It’s good to keep your hope alive now
Track Name: The Other Side
The Other Side

Who waits for you on the other side?

There is a line I’ve stretched between us
It is a ribbon made of white
There is a line I’m tangled in
I know that you tried

There is a line that moves around you
It is a ribbon made of light
There is a line that takes you with it
I know that it’s right

Who waits for you on the other side?
Track Name: Take Yourself Seriously
Take Yourself Seriously

I read “Letters To A Young Poet” for you
We take books to bed and settle into a groove
Our days move so fast, there’s still too much to do
One of us should open up a window

For this reason we will never cease to grow
Going beyond great into the greater
Patience enough in ourselves that we may endure
Simplicity enough to believe it

Take yourself seriously
Everything mysteriously
Take yourself seriously
Everything mysteriously

Dedicated to Rainer Maria Rilke. Lyrics inspired by “Letters To A Young Poet”
