Track Name: Untold
Fold it up, fold it in, tuck it away and then
No one will ever know
And the truth is alone in your pocket of stone
And your hands are so cold

But who can you trust?
These words, are they enough?
Afraid you will say too much.
So you stay untold...

Looking out, looking in, looking away again
You don't look him in the eyes
Staring down at the street, you trip over your feet
He catches you by surprise

But who can you trust?
These hands are they enough?
Afraid you will lose too much
Will you stay untold?
Track Name: Blackberries
I'm finding that I'm thankful for a couple of things
Like the color of blackberries
And when somebody sings....somebody sings...

And the song, it comes from a secret place that takes some getting to
On a little known path with a hike through a field
And a few sharp thorns to reach through
In the last month of summer we wonder if we should dare
But then somebody smiles and then we start to run
And before you know it we're there...

And we're covered in purple, from our fingertips
To our wrists and our elbows
And our smiling lips...our smiling lips...

And then you start to sing and the melody rings
And we're finally getting somewhere
And we follow the tune by the light of the moon
With the orchestra in the air
You're inviting me in and then I'm listening
To the rhythm of you, and the mystery too
And the symphony's so amazing...

And we're covered in purple...
And I'm finding that I'm thankful...
for so many things...
Track Name: Everything
I can tell this time is beyond repair
The sadness is hanging thick in the air
I'm watching you walking out to your car
Strange how the sun shines the same as before...

When everything is changing, everything has changed
Everything is changing, everything has changed

And now the night follows you out of bed
Afraid to remember, scared to forget
And here I am standing, no words to say
But I will wait with you until the day

Cause everything is waiting for everything to change
Everything is waiting for everything to change
And I will wait with you....
Track Name: She
She walks into the coffee shop
Nobody comes here...no one.
She sits down by the fire...it's a cool Spring evening.
She's warming herself and she's thinking. Nobody will know...no one...
If she closes her eyes...it's a long sad story...

But she dreams amazing endings
Such wild ridiculous things
Maybe her crazy pretendings
Will one day turn into wings

She's reading chapter thrity-seven. Nobody can see... no one...
How it all will unfold...and she turns the page now.
She's trying so hard to believe it. Nobody would guess...no one...
This unexpected turn...and she smiles to herself now...

And she dreams amazing endings
Such wild, ridiculous things
Maybe her crazy pretendings
will one day turn into wings

Once upon a time the window opened wide
It was her turn to fly, oh beautiful blue sky...

She dreams such amazing things...
Such beautiful wings...such wonderful wings....
Track Name: I Won't Be the One
I don't know about unfinished bridges
But here I am sitting on the edge
My legs are swinging high above deep water
And I am not the one who ran this time

And I won't be the one to hide
And I won't be the one to run this time
And I won't be the one to hide

I don't know about all your illusions
The smoke and mirrors and sleight of hand
And I can't keep you from hiding from me
But I won't be the one to run this time

And I won't be the one to hide
And I won't be the one to run this time
And I won't be the one to hide
Track Name: Laughing, Laughing
...But now you've got me dreaming and we are laughing, laughing....
and the trouble at the door, it runs away...
and as we are walking out, the trees are clapping, clapping...
and my hand is in yours and I'm not afraid
Track Name: Hide and Seek
Ready or not...I am not
Ready or not, here you come. I run.

I just need time to be, time to be found.
Just give me time to be, time to be found.

Eight, nine, ten, I hide again.
In the kitchen, in the bed, behind the chair and
in my head.

But maybe it's time to be, time to be found
Maybe it's time to be, time to be found.
Track Name: Letting You Go
Nothing has ended but I am left here in your leaving
Your hand slips from mine, you kiss me goodbye
Backpack two times your size, you follow the line
And I am standing alone, watching you
I am standing here, watching you go
I am catching my breath and watching you
I am standing alone and watching you go
Watching you go...letting you go...
Track Name: Something Happens
I could be a beauty if no one was around
And I can sing like an angel if no one hears the sound
I can write like Shakespeare if there's no one here to read
And I don't mind a broken heart if there's nothing left to bleed

But something happens when you are here
I get so useless when you are near
What game are you playing? Why can't you see?
I cannot win here. Just let me be.

I can be so clever when there's no one to impress
And I don't mind being honest when there's nothing to confess
I am so courageous when there's nothing to defend
And I can tell you I love you as long as it's pretend

But something happens when you are here
I get so useless when you are near
What game am I playing? Why can't I see?
I cannot win here. What's wrong with me?

Then you cross the room and you come and you ask to dance
But I've forgotton how. What can I say?
You spin me around on the edge of this circumstance
I'm in your arms, no more running away

And something happened...
something happened...
and you're something....you're sure something....
Track Name: Clean
You saw me as I tripped and fell
You held out your hand
Offering of water and soap
But I wasn't brave
I ran and ran
I wasn't brave
I ran and ran away

Dirt and blood became my shell
I could not breathe
I had almost turned to stone
when you found me
pleading for rain

When it came I rolled in it
And you joined me
When it came I played in it
And you joined me
Licking the water from your lips, you said:
"Remember how this feels...becoming clean."
Track Name: Psalm 131
Spread Your blanket over me
Rock me 'til I fall asleep
And I won't pretend to know
The secrets You don't want to show

And I'll believe
Your love for me
I'll rest somehow
Just hold me now

There's so much You're not telling me
Lots of things that I can't see
Things I can't begin to know
So hold my hand as I let go

And I'll believe
Your love for me
I'll rest somehow
Just hold me now...
