Track Name: Yellow On Yellow
I'd like to be alone underneath the lemon grove/ where my heart can find its home and grow with the leaves/ I'd like to spend my time out among the lemon trees/ where nobody else will be, just the sunshine and me/
Yellow on yellow/ blue skies and green/ where my thoughts can be mellow/ and my mind can be free
Where every morning light casts a spell of brilliant sight/ onto my unopened eyes to wake me from sleep/ and golden thoughts will rise from the depths of saddened sighs, where my heavy heart will cry no more for me
Track Name: Keep It Safe
This is a sticky place to start/ I'm in a tricky way, I'm in a house of cards/
I'm upside down and inside out/ I'm on a railway train that's sailing through the dark/
What can I do what can I say/ inside this house we share my bed's already made/ how could I be sure anyway?/ I've never tried it on, I'm not sure it will stay/
But I can't think about it anymore/ I can't think about it anymore/
I just want to keep it safe, I just want to keep it safe, I just want to keep it safe with you/
And so I'll keep it underneath/ I will not let it out I won't let it be seen/ I could just smoke and watch tv/ or I could give it up but I know that isn't me/
But I can't think about it anymore/
I just want to keep it safe...
Well I know, yes I know/ Well I know, yes I know/ Well I know, yes I know/
another time and place, another time, I know, but not today/
Forgive me Life for I have sinned/ I based a choice of mine on someone's opinion/ I cannot be who I have been/ I learned that lesson once and I won't do it again/
But I can't think about it anymore/ I can't think about it anymore/
I just want to keep it safe...
Track Name: My Wandering Heart
Sunshine lights up the night when I'm with you and your eyes aren't unlike the sky/ Deep and wide, I'm smiling inside when I'm with you/ My mind unwinds and I'm blinded by the moon/
There's nothing I can say or do to make the time roll by for you/ And darling, for as much as I like you/ I still need some time for thinking through/ before I let my wandering heart want you/
If you're still in town when I come back around I will kiss you/ And although this feels right, my future looks bright, but I'll miss you/ Eyes shut tight, I'm smiling inside with I'm with you/ My mind unwinds and I'm blinded by the moon/
I just need some time for searching so every day can be summertime/ But darling, for as much as I like you/ I want my wandering heart to be mine
Track Name: Sad Eyes
Sad eyes break tides, the moon moves too slowly sometimes/ But I know it's right/
Campfires expire, the starts slide in circles up high/ And I'm feeling tired/

Empires cease fire, the sun shines so brightly outside/ And I dream I might/
Miles high, drive by, the wind whips the willow's straight lines/ And I think it's time/

Write signs for eyes to turn upside down and inside/ But I see the light
Track Name: Jackals Hunt
Let the jackals' hunt be unbroken, as they set out West over the hill/ And roam the distance widespread outstanding/ be released from dangers unseen/

Let the marksman lead out unknowing, only to obtain a hidden truth/ And have not a judgement when he comes/ bearing nothing more than worldly fruit/

Journey out into the ether, sending home the memories of the shore/ And lead us not into temptation/ but let us taste the pain of something more/
Track Name: Beautiful One
Oh, you beautiful, you beautiful one I want to hold you in my arms/ and I can't keep these feelings from growing/ I want you for my one and only/ And now, it's been so long and I want to love someone/

And you, you came along at just the right time/ to start to spark the stars in my eyes/ I see the light shine out in me/ when you look to me so fondly/ And now, it's been so long and I want to love someone/

And I want to love you like no one's ever done/ Oh I want to love you, my beautiful one/
