1.
I breathe your indrawn breath I feel your tears across my face I close my eyes and see your Darkness I open them and see your Stars You and I have been here many times before Of that I'm certain, of that I'm sure This breath that rises like mist in the dawn Drew me to you the day you were born You abandoned me But I followed you through your wanderings I hid behind your every thought Then I returned to you, back to the Source You imagined me And here I am, filled with ecstasy Your call became my echo Your life became my dream
2.
A careless hand Like yours is now Will caress your face one day Rocky earth protecting you Will crumble all away A distant gaze Like yours is now Will wash you like the sun Dormant seeds reachin' up Craving love. A last goodbye Like yours is now Will wake you from your dream Where the shadows weep And the roots of your soul Will plunge down deep And there you'll find In the tears you reap The place where I have been

I lept right across what remained of my years And saw we'd reached redemption in that last year Listen closely to what I say This is your voice anyway These are your thoughts, these cotton seeds Dance round you every day I didn't have to go like my Daddy did He took himself away from all this No, I had less but I had more I knew what the pain was for All the walls had fallen down God's eyes gazed down from every tree And suddenly we all could See I felt the love in each Embrace A great murmuring filled my ears Of wind in meadows and ocean breeze The purring sands and the fire on leaves And the rivers thanked us endlessly Listen closely to what I say This is your voice anyway These are your thoughts, these cotton seeds Dance round you every day

Is there no end to these tears? Oh Lord, feels like I'll cry for years Your arms no longer round me But your beauty still surrounds me I didn't know How to love you The way you wanted me to I never knew, I never knew My love wasn't getting through Passion soared so high I thought it could never die But underneath all the while You were hiding like a frightened child You were hiding like a frightened child Is there no end to these tears? Oh Lord, feels like I'll cry for years Your arms no longer round me But your beauty still surrounds me Blinded by my love Blinded by my pride I didn't see you hurting inside But now you've gone so far away All I see is your sweet face All I see still is your sweet face Is there no end to these tears? Oh Lord, feels like I'll cry for years Your arms no longer round me But your beauty still surrounds me Underneath, all the while Underneath

111.0 04:17
Life is just a dial on the radio Sliding through a million frequencies Picked me up on 111.0 I'm tuned in now but soon I'll cease to be I'm tuned in now but soon I'll cease to be There's more time when we're not here than when we're here Unborn or dead more than alive A breeze blows through the night And blows out the light Eternity ahead and far behind Out on the highway cruising late at night Dashboard and speed for company Thinking about the millions of tequilas Thinking about nothingness and me Thinking about nothingness and me There's more time when we're not here than when we're here Unborn or dead more than alive A breeze blows through the night And blows out the light Eternity ahead and far behind Am I once forgotten, now remembered? Am I something found then cast away? All I know is the moment I am driving through A frequency that soon will fade away A frequency that soon will fade away

about

Recorded in a shed out the back of Nicole's house in Brunswick, these intense, dreamy ballads reflect a lot of upheaval in our lives at the time, relationships dissolved, loved ones passed on, trucking down the cosmic highway.
