Track Name: My Ideal
it's very still when i know my ideal
all the time in the world like summers as a child

history spills the same as gravity spills
your memories are not all in your brain

it's very still when i know my ideal
vast as feeling beyond my fingertips

history spills the same as gravity spills
then i start moving and it was all a dream

on tom's windowsill there's a picture of his aunt phil
yes indeed i'd love some pancakes and some scrambled eggs
Track Name: Sunset
seen grey clouds over black expanse
past the hedge sheep spot the fields in the dark
seen a house window, a warm amber glow in the distance ...

been a great many nights been a passenger at sunset
to see the silhouette of a tree black against the fading colors
been a passenger at sunset ...maybe never seen the sky

the silhouette of castle ruins beyond enormous clouds
the sky is beautiful and clear
trees march a line, giraffes on the horizon
a waning moon shines bright
Track Name: Oh, Bless
when your heart of joy
swollen bud of springtime
announced by daffodils fanfare
should send you weeping
may it rain
precious light falling
from the silent lake within

teardrop
fearful of the fall
slow arc
of feather falling
single petal
of a tulip
your lullaby
in mama's arms
step down gently
precious light falling
take it step by step by step ...

fallen teardrop
she is risen
come to earth
like a drop of dew
to reflect heaven and earth
like that crying eye
you be the sea
and i'll be the sky

may it rain
precious light falling
to know the meaning of love
