Track Name: Neap Tide
He brings me coffee and teas from overseas
He brings a lighthouse to my door
And in the books he reads he finds the keys that make him so sweet
Like bare feet on hardwood floor

But where is he hiding the textbooks and binding they’re fading away
The currents pull south where the poets all drown
It won’t be the first time I lose to the city

Lost in a cave, we heard a siren cry
The sailor said he was in awe
The water pours through Brooklyn skies and people run, they run on by
We just walk

But where will we hide, future will not abide, she’s right on our heels
The people will march, artists don’t have the heart
They do, they think, they feel

And the lights they keep changing
They stop and go, we’ll start it slow
They’re just lights after all no one cares, so we’ll stall
Wasting time with you is fine by me
Shadows can’t be given borderlines
So we’ll try

Sail away with me
Sail away with me

He brings me coffee and teas from overseas
But sometimes just the corner store
I’ve seen his dark side I’ll admit, once he lied
But I have told an awful lie before
Now I’ll have bare feet on hardwood floor
And I’ll sing to the sailor from the shore

Sail away with me, I said
Sail away with me
Track Name: Castles & Clouds
As her sleeve slips down her shoulder
She fixes her hair, she acts like she cares
While he just stares ‘cross the room like a soldier
Thinking of gifts he can give for her kiss

This old fashioned melody
It serves me quite nicely when I’m lonely

Because she doesn’t love you like I do
And I dreamed of castles and clouds, we’d have such a view
And you give me chills when you walk through my door
I couldn’t ask for more than to be yours, than to be yours

As the waves sweep ‘cross the sand
I see him unplanned but it’s all a scam
They’re holding hands as they walk ‘cross the bayside
But he waves hi to me

This old fashioned melody
It serves me quite nicely when I’m lonely
And I’m lonely

Because she doesn’t love you like I do
And I dreamed of castles and clouds, we’d have such a view
And you give me chills when you walk through my door
I couldn’t ask for more than to be yours

All these promises are leaving bandages on me
And I’m lonely because

You never loved me like I you
And I dreamed of castles and clouds, there’ll be no such view
And you gave me chills, but you walked through that door
I couldn’t ask for more than to be yours, than you be yours
Track Name: Man In The Moon
Mama wants babies but Daddy don’t care
Daddy owns half of France, Mama don’t care
'Cause the man in the moon’s got a lure that is hard to beware
When we stare too hard we start silent love affairs

Write it all down you’ll lose sight of your goal
Think of the grandchildren, they’d like to know
Gloria in excelsis Deo
Time, string of presence, hear me roar

Say a little prayer for me
I am smoky ash on a stormy sea
Ain’t it nice that the stars are out
‘Cause darkness does not suite me
But I think it’s healthy

Hole through the wall I can see my old man
Tying the moon to a cinderblock pan
Signing contracts, laying the law of the land
If God is who I think He is, He’ll understand

Say a little prayer for me
I am smoky ash on a stormy sea
Ain’t it nice that the stars are out
‘Cause darkness does not suite me
But I know it’s healthy
Track Name: Quiet World
Alaska, my sister
She tells me you’re not real
And I don’t know why, I don’t know why
The Quiet World, it does not satisfy

Spaghetti mermaids and friendly squirrels
We were just girls, we were just girls
And I don’t know why, I don’t know why
The night time, it tends to make me cry

In silence, in silence
In my cotton cocoon
I’ll meet you there soon

Alaska, I promise
Someday, we’ll be free but
Don’t look for me, don’t look for me
I’ll be waiting

In silence, my silence
In my cotton cocoon
I’ll meet you there soon

My silence, my silence
In my cotton cocoon
I’ll meet you there soon, soon
