Track Name: silhouettes
silhouettes

marion
high and low
in the air and in the hills and space i know
on a wire
echoing
see the passing days through tree lines as we breathe

some will come
all will stay
the ancient all around us all will still remain
desert wind carry all those miles of earth

and silhouetted joshua trees line the path
i went on to see you
outline of the hills holding you here now
you are air
we were around you

all has been said
pulsing on
like the way a light is still seen left where it's from
hand to hand
pressing
all the years you've formed

and silhouetted joshua trees line the path
i went on to see you
outline of the hills holding you here now
you are air
we were around you
Track Name: cracks
cracks

i'm stepping over cracks in the wood and the shadows on the ground
i'm stepping over the cracks in the wood and the shadows all around

the human outline pulls me (put my head in my heart always)
being of the world does everything but dwell in me (aligned and i’ll cast no shadow)
i am dust and you are light you’ve shown me

gonna shake it down
gonna shake it
gonna shake it
down

i'm stepping over the cracks in the wood and the shadows on the ground
i'm stepping over the cracks in the wood and the shadows all around

somewhere it is said
life can now shed a dead way (put my head in my heart all day)
and see in the new
all you did to bind me (aligned and i’ll cast no shadow)
wandered around again just to be found

gonna shake it down
gonna shake it
gonna shake it
down

gonna shake it down
gonna shake it
gonna shake it down
gonna shake it

i’m stepping over cracks in the wood
Track Name: give and takers
give and takers

the way you walk around
with your head up and heart down
like those shadows are losing ground
until the morning

the way you walk beside
it's like nothing i can recall
and those shadows on the wall
gave into morning

it's a matter of give and takers
it's a matter of time
when the tide is slow returning
it's a matter of time
time, time, time

oh how you mended wounds
from those scattered days away from you
and brought back the color
you always do
in the morning

new ways grab ahold
for the new days they never know
what was left behind in the old
in the morning

it's a matter of give and takers
it's a matter of time
when the tide is slow returning
it's a matter of time
time, time, time

time, time, time
Track Name: black train
black train

all day long
i speak your name and burn it in the air
and i'll wish
i had a reason to
run to you and break the silence

for all the light
and ways i tried
to love you home again

you'll be the last to go
you’ll always be the last to go

black train
turn me into night
that i might see
this war behind me
and wish i hadn't seen
all i have seen
in that july july

for all the light
and ways that i tried
to love you home again

you’ll be the last to go
you’ll always be the last to go

you’ll always be the last to go
Track Name: linden seed
linden seed

see your heart
in the fields of an open way
in the palms of earth and sky
on the wind like linden seed

in your time
bring what desire can't design
that which still water holds
and only the formed ground knows

gold like needing
gold like needing
been thinking about the color of desire
and how your white spring
can fall on me

call it your will

call your move
calm as a rock lay under the sun
clear as the flight of a morning dove
sure as the hum of you voice will come

gold like needing
gold like needing
been thinking about the color of desire
and how your white spring
can fall on me

call it your will
call it your peace
call it your time, darling
i'm begging for these
Track Name: wooden light
wooden light

was i in the moving air
beholden to shifting sand
was it there i came to know

it was time
lift it up
you’re bringing my feet to the ground
i’ve never been so still
trace the landscape as it forms
into the view we’ve come to know
in between a shadow and light

veil lifted
in not of
may the glory be see in love
i’ve never been so still
i’ve never been so still

morning sight
come around us now
wooden light
fall upon
all we’ve found
we are soul

i’ve never been so still

morning sight
come around us now
wooden light
fall upon
all we’ve found
we are soul
we are soul
we are soul
Track Name: where are you going
where are you going

where are you going?
where have you been?
wait for tomorrow and all you've needed
will be closer still

gonna walk on down where the living is easy and rest for a while
get along with it all

gonna change my name and the notes i've been playing all this time
find some truth

you've got a way
you've got a way
of taking it slow

you've got a way
you've got a way
of taking it slow

given my own dear lady
who gave it all
to find that the world is rounder
than the fear of it all

you'll keep the marching time
ahead of the curving line
towards a blaze from the sun
and wonder how it can be
that moving at this speed
we can't erase what we've done

where are you going?
where have you been?
wait for tomorrow and all you've needed
will be closer still

you'll keep the marching time
ahead of the curving line
towards a blaze from the sun
and wonder how it can be
that moving at this speed
we can't erase what we've done
what we’ve done
what we’ve done
what we’ve done
what we’ve done

you've got a way
you've got a way
of taking it slow
Track Name: all in a day
all in a day

calling a day
like it is
the coast can stop the rain
from coming in
from where it came
and land on the road
make it home
and we will wonder how we do it
and we will wonder how we do it

calling the days
like they are
like always they are
come on and see
make some noise
and wander around
until we feel fine
and we will wonder how we do it
and we will wonder how we do it

all in a day
we will find
we’re on our way
towards peace of mind
all in a day we will find

caught in a daze
there is a rise
to fall again
the movement
makes stepping light
carve out a space in time
watch landforms change
and we will wonder how we do it
and we will wonder how we do it

all in a day
we will find
on our way towards peace of mind
all in a day
we will find
we’re on our way towards peace of mind
