Track Name: Same Old Thrill
By now we’re off the carousel
And I can almost tell, summer’s gonna lose you
Allow for some weathered shell, seaside bagatelle
To stand in for our time, warm your windowsill
It’s still the same old thrill

By now you’re midway down the lane,
I’m back home again, wondering how to hold you
But how will I avoid the pain, but to hear your name
Crawling through the air waves, rolling down the hill
It’s still the same old thrill

By now September’s come and gone
I’m out on the lawn, trying not to tease you
Out loud, how to grow alone - curious, outshone
Waiting in the light, like a whippoorwill
It’s still the same old thrill
Track Name: Jenny
It was a time of fences made of bones
And a river of virgin tears
She wore a daisy chain of lies
And he was gone for years

And the trials were bound to multiply
As her temper gently seared
She knew that her heart, at twenty summers
Would be blinded out of fear

No cold daydream of revenge
And no escape from stone
She was locked away for hours
Waiting all alone

When the bars were finally broken
For to make their loving strong
The last small glance, stole with care,
Left her warm down to the bone

She’ll be waiting till the rushes lose their light
Not the crown you want to fight
Whisperin’ that it’s got to be tonight
Hold me, just be polite

Well the days were troubled, nights long
But their love it always grew
He combed her hair, heard a knock
And his arms she fell into

And forever to part company
Forgiven by those he knew
Her one true Lance, filled with pride
Had to hold and bid her adieu

She’ll be waiting till the rushes lose their light
Not the crown you want to fight
Whisperin’ that it’s got to be tonight
Hold me, just be polite

Hold me, just be polite
Track Name: Swept Below
Wrinkled coat, knowing eye
String of pearls wrapped me round your little finger
Linger, she whispered
Had me at hello, swept below

Wholesome smile, siren wave
Golden chain’s now become cold on my finger
Linger, she whispered
Had me at hello, swept below

Cleaning house, walking slow
Found a coat with a wrinkle
Learn not to linger, linger, linger
Had me at hello, swept below
Track Name: Little Blue Refrain
I’ll remind you, I just can’t tell you enough
They all pass through
All those smokers think they’re tough
You've got ashes on your coat and a pocket filled with rain
So you brave the night alone,
With a little blue refrain

Saw a june bug, I turned on the evening fan
What I heard of
Was a lost ship reaching land
Got a glow stick in the dark,
I hoped it could light the way
Wait, it only goes so long
And it’s on its final spark

Have a lodestar and it’s always pointing wrong
I invite you, go ahead and sing along
You still have your old refrain
And you wear it like a watch
Open up, stay the same
Compass hands are always

I was northbound when you called me on the train
It’s been five years, but your voice still sounds the same
God I wish that I were free to say what you mean to me
But you’re late again, again, again I guess it has to wait

God I wish that I were free to say what you mean to me
But you’re late again, again, again I guess it has to wait
Track Name: Write Soon
Fancy that, the horizon
Fancy a glass of wine?
Sometimes we’re just talking
Sometimes left behind

Thought I’d go to Tahoe
Sounds like you’re doing fine
Cave Rocks on the postcard
Sometime drop a line

And I’m writing by the window of the room
And I hope that I’ll be seeing you
Well how did you finish up in school?
Fancy that
Write soon

They say wonders all around us
But I’m immune to its charm
They could sing all in chorus
I could give a darn

I take out my old paintbox
I start to paint the sky
Wondrin' if you’re still dreaming
Still ask yourself why

And I’m writing by the window of the room
And I hope that I’ll be seeing you
Well how did you finish up in school?
Fancy that

And I’m writing by the window of the room
And I hope that I’ll be seeing you
Well how did you finish up in school?
Fancy that
Well fancy that
Well fancy that
Write soon
Track Name: Language
Where once was fire in the night
Once a circle burning bright
Once we had no dismay
Such a shame to hear you say

We got language
Hesitation
My tired communication
We got votive little candles
Filled your space with imagination

Where once hands raised to talk
Once two strangers on a walk
Building up room to say
Maybe we’re out of luck

We got people worth knowing
We got footwork that’s worth showing
Travel plans, well, they may vary
Fill my space or I’ll get going

We got language
Hesitation
My tired communication
We got votive little candles
Fill my space with imagination
Track Name: Chesapeake Coat
Run straight for the cover
And run for me a quick mile
You’ll be my vagrant lover
Lonesome vagabond smile

Take me past this great snowfall
And read me past this great tome
A shimmer, a lightness
Where I can be lone
Where I can be home
To your Chesapeake coat

Bury me close to the lilies
And shepherd me ‘neath a stream
Kindness once so unknown
I’d grown with a conscious so clean

Down past the willows
And swept along Wabasha
A sweetness arose
And there a great fall
Where first I saw
Your Chesapeake coat

Taken down with such sorrow
And led astray with such vice
Then you would show me something
Something that could be nice

Bright like the first morning
And blessed like the glow
Awake in the night
With eyes so remote
Never we spoke
About your Chesapeake coat
Track Name: Lady Love (Mother Nature)
Lady love was sugar on the playground
Mother nature she was the dirt
Where do you go, where do you go
Where do you go when you get yourself hurt?

Strung out on a string
Beer to make you sing
A lullaby, a ballad from the sea
Laser-vision quick, don’t it make you sick
To represent yourself to the scene?

Supposin’ that I knew you better
Supposin’ that I liked your face
Supposin’ we’d be back by dinner
Could we get out of this place?

Spinnin' little treats, fairy lights and sweets
Anything to catch your eye
Where do you buy, where do you buy,
Where do you buy a pretty little lie?

Little circles intertwined, an outline of a state
A bird, a bat, mechanics of a bull
Tattoo on my fist
A little girl has paid for this
To represent herself to the scene

Supposin’ that I knew you better
Supposin’ that I liked your face
Supposin’ we’d be back by dinner
Could we get out of this place?
