Track Name: Under Doors
Lips like pillows, eyes like stone
You stand tall, want to be alone

I slip in like wind under doors
And I croon to you softly, to your core

You fall down like a clover in arms
And you sail straight ahead unaware you're torn
Track Name: Tonight You're Mine
A soft glare of red flame brings us close again
An open palm gives way to smoke inside my head
Despite the threat of coming pain I choose to raise the dead
With you I walked backwards in time feeling no regret

You know I can't go
A heart in pieces is what I have to show

Silver in hand scratches my eyes, I don't impose
Whether I convince myself, you convince us both
She's locked away like a day dream, she's foggy at most
But tonight you're mine, saltwater sinks on forest floors

You know I can't go
A heart in pieces is what I have to show
Track Name: Eve
Stay for a while and
I'll give back the love we once had lost
All me, for you

I can't get it out of my mind
That it wasn't wasted time
But still, I release my bind

Stop it there, you know perfect was lost
When Eve tasted all the wrong
Please forgive, I can't get it out of my mind

Stay for a while and
I'll give back the love we once had lost
All me, for you
Track Name: Scales
Deep unto deep you call
From the waterfall

I underestimate the love that rages in your eyes
Always forgetful I push off and then I take flight
Remove the scales I beg you please let me see the light
I need clarity for I have embraced the night
Remove the scales I beg you please restore my sight

What can make the angels cry?
Cause their wings to hide their eyes?
Track Name: Jaded Lens
I'm lit up inside pretending you are mine
In the night time you hold me
I feel like I'm the only
One who can love you and be true
Memories of twisted hands
Cause you to see through a jaded lens
Track Name: Haze
He is my star, for him my eyes only drew
Unbridle love within a dizzy hue
I follow him like the lamb that Mary knew
Lopsided white it lifts me out of blue

So the first becomes the last
As I see through a haze
That's filled with only you
Your touch, your smile
And all the while, I'm waiting for the
Wind to come, to see the sun
We're headed east, into the deep
I'm grasping now, at threads undone
The least of these
They end up the ones

Rumblings come from mountain tops to valleys deep
His voice provides me with a solid beat
Time sways but our irises they keep the heat
His shoulders convince me to take the leap

So the first becomes the last
As I see through a haze
That's filled with only you
Your touch, your smile
And all the while, I'm waiting for the
Wind to come, to see the sun
We're headed east, into the deep
I'm grasping now, at threads undone
The least of these
They end up the ones
Track Name: Satellite
Satellite orbiting me
Circling so willing
You are the sun
And I am your moon
You pluck my heartstrings
Orchestrating a lovesick tune

When hope is deferred and gone, still I'll feel the same
My love is so strong, it will never wane

Satellite you take me
Passed things material, spiritual energy
We belong together
Like waves that pull at the sand
For this I was made
Created to love this man

When hope is deferred and gone, still I'll feel the same
My love is so strong, it will never wane
Track Name: Beauty for Ashes
I've been looking for love, all the wrong places
All the wrong times, all the wrong faces
Looking for a place where I could simply lay my head

Unlock my knees, bury inside
Something that the flesh can never compromise
I am ruined for anything less than our experience
Fleeting shadows have only hold in disguise

Though I play vagabond, truth is I want you
Written on palm of hand, your name, I've turned you
Into a harbor from all of the ties
Drinking from broken cisterns that never satisfy

Beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, praise for heaviness
Beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, praise for heaviness
