Track Name: The Eye in the Dawn
The sea is spilled over the shore
The wind is beating down the doors
The silence is an ocean filling all
And in your boat so safe and dry
Gently dreaming will you still be sleeping?
The day is bringing light
Ah...
The unicorn and dragon come
They ask again can we be one
The sun will rise in our time
The king return for once and all
It's said that many will be called
To ride to the eye in the dawn
Track Name: Home
When the night falls on the forest
When the night falls on the forest
When the pieces fall together
When the peace is all-together
All falls silent in the valley
At the center running river
Twilight burning in the fire

Welcome home, my friend, it’s good to see you
I am glad to be here for I have been
Wading in the water of Babylon
Trying so to find my way
Home

When the moon rise on the mountain
When the moon rise on the mountain
When the light come all seen glistening
When the light come on the mountain
On the mountain

Welcome back it’s so good to find you here
I must laugh to be here, for I have been
Wading in the water of Babylon
Trying so to find my way
Home
Track Name: Foxfire
How can you be so groovy?
How can you be so smooth?
How can you be so Here?
How can you be so what you are?
How can it be so clear?
How can you be so Everywhere?

There’s no use in fighting arrival
Find here in Love not denial!

It’s really happening here
There’s nowhere else to be
Why would you want to try to hide from all the light you see?
It’s one in everyone
All-in-one, Being!
Foxfire, foxfire, night light you’re seeing

There’s no use in fighting arrival
Find here in Love not denial!
Track Name: Some Angel
You’re some angel
Look at what you’ve done
A smile, angel
A smile for everyone
Oh, how could you?
I guess it’s easy to do
Now everyone has a smile like you

And nobody knows what it’s for
But everyone knows how to smile
It’s easy to do

Angel pouring out your love
Like rain from the sky above
So easily, it’s easy to do
It’s no wonder I’m in love with you

And nobody knows what it’s for
But everyone knows about Love
You know when it’s true
Angel…

Some angel let the secret out
And now anyone can see what it’s about
It’s so simple
There’s nothing to know
And a smile is all you have to show

And nobody knows what it’s for
But everyone knows how to smile
It’s easy to do
Track Name: Autumnal Days
Red moon hanging
Sad bells clanging
Sweet smells of decay
Autumnal days
Seasons picking
Treats are tricking
Raking leaves in vain
Autumnal days
Dead ripe color
Soft ground cover
All over the place
Autumnal grace
You don’t know when
Chill will blow in
That’s just nature’s way
Autumnal days
Track Name: The Calling
Lying on the forest floor
Have you been there before?
When you opened up the door
That made the love return
And stopped the fire from burning
You inspire the wind
And you keep the winter in
You would do that for a friend
When will you stop to see
The dawn between the trees?
You will be queen of all
And soak up the sun
When the great wind calls
Days the fog spreads 'round
The sun won't touch the ground
When the broken sky turns brown
Then we can stop to dream
A place to go with meaning
I will tear down these walls
And build us a home
When the great wind
Track Name: Nightshade
You know the way you’re on
It must be close to dawn
For it’s so hard to see
It seems your lights have gone

Don’t be afraid if it feels strange
Don’t! Don’t worry
Love will never change
Don’t turn away
Look right where you are
Love is never far

You’re everything to me
You keep me hanging on
It’s in your heart I know
Love’s eternal flow

Don’t be afraid when it’s time to go
Don’t try to hold on
Trust, be still and know
Don’t turn away
Look into your heart
Look at what you are

Don’t be afraid if it feels strange
Don’t! Don’t worry
Love will never change
Don’t turn away
Look right where you are
Love is never far
Don’t be afraid if it feels strange
Don’t! Don’t worry
Love will never change
Don’t turn away
Look into your heart
Look at what you are
Track Name: Doesn't It Feel
When I feel a gentle rain
Break the chains in my mind
When I feel the rain break
Doesn’t it feel good?

When I wash away the fear
That keeps me away from my Love
When I wash away
Doesn’t it feel good…
Now that you know?

Sometimes I think you’re killing me
But if I’ve died it’s alright
And every time I feel this way
The light’s on inside
It’s too much for me, I feel so overwhelmed!

When I hear her softly whisper things I should already know
When I know already
Doesn’t it feel good…

When you look into your heart
No matter where my mind’s been
We can laugh about it
Doesn’t it feel good…
Now that you know?

Sometimes I see you everywhere
And when I’m there I’m nowhere
And every time I feel this way
I’ve all my Love to share
It’s to much for me to keep to myself!
Track Name: Little By Little
Out on the plains
Dancing in heat
After the rain
Fragrant air so sweet
Slowly but simply
All return this way
River to ocean
Mountain to clay
We begin to see
Little by little

Out on a limb
In you new day hues
All your fine leaves
Dressed in moonlit dew
We will softly bend
To receive today’s kiss
Or break in vain trying to resist
She flows on and on
On the great river
Track Name: Spiral Slide
I went away one morning
Took a trip on a winding ride
I fell into a spiral slide
I ran to your bedside
You know everything I tried
I couldn’t escape it there was nowhere to hide

And it seemed like some-kinda-mania
And it seemed like insanity
And I didn’t understand it when I
Noticed I was falling
And I couldn’t hold on
And the world spun around my head singin’ the same old song…

Oh baby
Things are gonna come together
Even if you can’t see now, my
Love is one forever

I threw my money to the roadside
Left my clothes on the doorstep
I knocked but I couldn’t get inside
So naked I spiraled through the suburbs
Into the jaws opening wide
‘Cause you can’t escape it there is nowhere to hide
Oh No!

And it seemed like it was all over
And it seemed like it was the end
And I didn’t understand it any
Better in the morning
And I cried the whole day long
And the birds flew around my head singin’ the same old song…

Oh baby
Things are gonna come together
Even if you can’t see now, my
Love is one forever

And the birds flew around my head...
Track Name: Days Keep Falling
Days keep falling
Raining flowers
Dreaming of you
Waking here
Waiting for you
And the way she keeps flowing

Grazing cattle
Ancient meadow
Weeping tears
We remember
We are here
And the way she keeps changing

We awaken we awaken we are waking we are way-king we are way-king we are...
