Track Name: Feather
Cold water
Clear sky
You’re watching
Me sigh

So go, go, go
There’s someplace better
And you will know
How to re-tether
So fare thee fair weather

Moon shaking
Through my lungs
Earth baking
In the sun

And who am I?
A seeking settler
My gaze is high
My heart unfettered
I fly like a feather

Cold water
Clear sky
I’m watching
You sigh

And what is this?
A playful ramble
Unclench your fist
And start to tumble
The water is humble

We’re born to be humble
Track Name: Through the Wild
There’s a sound in my heart
I remember
The sound of nothing

There’s a space in my heart
I remember
When I was nothing

I took the wind and I held it in my hands
I took the sand and I threw it
Back to the ocean
Blew it

There’s a path through the wild
I remember
A path to nowhere

In the woods as I walk
I’m a child
Is something out there?

I faced the fog and I asked if I could stay
I want to play in your silence
Watch me float away

Only when we stop looking
Do we see
Only when we stop running
Are we free
Put your feet up now
Lay low with me
Rest your head back now
Float on the sea
Float on with me

There’s a sound in my heart
I remember
The sound of nothing

There’s a space in my heart
I remember
When I was nothing

I took the wind and I held it in my hands
I took the sand and I threw it back
Track Name: In the Little I've Seen
Did you figure it out
The hazy rain
And what about now
Have you nulled your pain
In the little I’ve seen
I’ve seen a lot
When the words hide out
I’ll share what I’ve got

And where are your laughs
The ones you’d belt
I remember the songs
How minutes melt
If the time is now
Then the time was then
When you can’t sit still
But you can’t keep going
No you can’t sit still
But you can’t keep going

But honey
I feel myself
Again

And when you think of it now
Is it clearer to you
And can you tell me how?
And when you think of me now
Is it clearer to you
And can you show me how?
I should know
Track Name: Don't Have to Try
Who knows how long
The rain will go on
Who knows how long
The sun will stay strong

But in your arms I don’t feel much fear
And in your arms I could be anywhere

And by the time you came into my life
I was tired of trying to get it right
But we don’t have to try

Who knows how long
The earth can spin on
And who knows if we all
Can correct what we’ve wronged

But in your eyes I don’t see much fear
And in your eyes I see that you’re right here

And if I ever fall down to my hands
Will you lift me up
And try to understand
But you don’t have to try

And if they ask me where I am
I’m running to you lover
And if you’re wondering where I stand
My heart is set
You’re covered

And if there’s anything that I can control
It’s my willingness
To keep your heart feeling full
And I will always try
Track Name: Finch
There’s a finch in my heart
Singing me to sleep
There’s an owl in my eye
Loving and meek
There are clouds in the sky
Looming, bleak
Still the light of your eyes
Pours on the trees

Tell me where you have been, what have you seen
Ask me who I have loved, what do I dream
Walk me backwards in time
Into the rain
Take me off of this one-track
Fast-moving train
Moving train

I can feel the climate shifting
And it’s time for me to go
Stand beneath the tallest mountain
And forget what I think I know

At the center of you what do you feel
In the depths of your heart what is real
I am here as your friend as you navigate
A path that heals and illuminates
You’re never late

I can feel the climate shifting
And it’s time for me to go
Dive into the deepest ocean
And let all of myself go

So I can learn
What needs to be learned
What needs to be grown
Or undone
Cause I know, yes I know
That we’re only here a while now
We’re only here, I’ll smile now

You’re the finch in my heart
Singing me to sleep
You’re the owl in my eyes
Loving and meek
When the clouds in the sky loom over me
I know

The sun is shining
Though I can’t see
The sun is shining
Just like me
