Track Name: Amelia
mama's favorite dress of mine had birds all over
i wore it every Sunday 'til i got older
and i reached away for something there
that i could taste in the air

put it all in a little black box
hide it on the floor of the sea
only leave behind you
the waves and speed

i was gone for 30 days and 20 hours
before i saw the water close and tried to call the towers
and i opened up my window then
and gave my letters to the wind

put it all in a little black box
hide it on the floor of the sea
only leave behind you
the waves and speed

i wasn't quite sure where i was going
i knew that i'd know when i was there
and i wouldn't let anybody
keep it away from me again
Track Name: Chocolate
You are sticky sweet like chocolate
Never miss a beat like the sun
You´re always melting in my hands again
And I can never have just one

I'm gonna stir you up in all my recipes
Gonna let you taint every one
Because I know you'd taste just like chocolate
And I'd be all the sweeter when I'm done

I love the taste of you
Melting in my tongue
I want the worst of you
More than the best of anyone
It's like confection
When your lips are touching mine
I could go through boxes of you at a time

I love the taste of you
Melting in my tongue
I want the worst of you
More than the best of anyone
It's like confection
When your lips are touching mine
Won´t you tell me
That you are gonna be mine
Track Name: Rest Your Head
Rest your head
Your worries are all gone
and instead
Only dreams belong

Floating on a cloud
You are held up as
All your weight comes sinking down
Your eyes and ears let go
of all they've found
Quiet sleep is all around
Track Name: Canyon
My love is a canyon
dark and steep
My sleep is illusive
and just knee-deep
but my hope is alive
and my spirit is striving
to rid itself from these chains
my heart is an endless highway
over difficult terrain
but my love is a canyon
my love is a canyon
my love is a canyon
dark and steep
Track Name: Sorrow No More
Sorrow no more, my child.
I'll look after all your cares in the world
and higher.
Rest in me, your restless dreams
will be quiet and still
longing fulfilled
and your cold fear
turned to fire.
Sorrow no more.
Track Name: Oh, Light
Oh, light
where shall I go when you are gone?
What will my fantasies become?
From twisted roots they grew
grasping high to reach for you.
Oh, light
where shall I go when you are gone?

Oh, love
what will I do when you leave me?
Your heart is careless as the sea.
Adrift on the empty blue
I wish for winds that we once knew.
Oh, love
what will I do when you leave me?

Oh, time
what will you make of my disguise?
Will I see through these very eyes?
Sometimes when I see myself
I swear I'm looking at someone else.
Oh, time
what will you make of my disguise?

Oh, Lord
when will you take me from this world?
When will my spirit be unfurled?
It's been a long time since
I could rest in innocence.
Oh, Lord
when will you take me from this world?
Track Name: Separational
Put it away, down into the ground below you
It could make a sweet sound, but only for this moment
With the come of the sunrise, up from the ground
and out of your mind it goes

I thought that there was nothing that would
I thought that there was nothing that could
Come between us like you do

My love, let nothing come between us
My precious love

Honey lay down, don't hold a thought inside you
There's no need to touch the ground, away I will fly you
In the light of the moon's eye, we can escape
There are so many places to hide

I thought that there was nothing that would
I thought that there was nothing that could
Come between us like you do

I thought that there was nothing that would
I thought that there was nothing that could
Come between us like you do
A separational truth

My love, let nothing come between us
My precious love
My love, can anything redeem us
My dying love

Just let it stay way down, out with the tide before you
Until it comes back around to swallow you
At the edge of the seaside
Don't look away but certainly don't look inside
Track Name: Whisper of the Moon
One small prayer on
one small night can
change the course of
any life and

Two small eyes can
see the light
from the singing moon
still, cold, and bright

I have bent my ear
to a thousand tunes
but I've never heard a-one
like the whisper of the moon

Three small wishes
of your own
to dream about
and guide you home and

Four small words say
it's alright to
close your eyes
"sweet dreams sleep tight"

I have bent my ear
to a thousand tunes
but I've never heard a-one
like the whisper of the moon
