about

With this album, I tried to focus on the individual. The one child in the refugee boat, the one child in the womb, the one fern in the forest, and the album appeared. For me I have come home to a lot of things in my life that I thought I had lost or could never return to. It feels good to know that we actually don’t grow linear…we grow in a spiral…upward…but constantly revisiting what we once knew over and over again…with more strength and clarity. And this makes me happy because we are constantly given the opportunity to love again and again.

I hope this album can be a gift to you. It is the only reason to keep making them.

Track Name: December
December
for the broken hearted

The sun goes down and
The city lights are
Shining stars on the ground

For everyone
Rushing home
I look out the window but you were gone

December is ending
So easy to hide away
In the busy streets in the night

Winds are blowing
Snow flakes falling
Magic melts in the sky

We’d tie our sleds to the trees and make
Winter hammocks and lay and watch the
Amber snow
Our handprints make footprints
And footprints make pathways that lead us far from home

The city skyline
Mimics mountains on
The other side of the world

I sit silent my mind is drifting
On all the things I’ll never know

Right in the middle of statues and trees
I see the shadow of me

Time flashes I’m seventeen
I’m in a bookstore on Jackson Street
You had to go and let it rest
I turned to face a loneliness
Kept secret in a blanket only for us
Track Name: Dream
Dream
for the heavy conscience

Sit on a swing reaching up kick the branches high
Back and forth just like us we live we die

They tell you not to think on it
They tell you not to dream of it
They tell you not to think on it
They tell you not to dream

Late at night you take the stairs two at a time
The one you hurt still sitting there in the back of your mind

They tell you not to think on it
They tell you not to dream of it
They tell you not to think on it
They tell you not to dream

But you can dare to dream
You can cross a barrier to anything
You can dare to dream
It’s not your fault when people love you
They’re meant to
Track Name: Fly
Fly
for the faithful

I always knew
People come and walk right through
I’ve got a mat laid out for you
You keep your boots and shuffle through

You always knew
I’ve got wings that you can’t pin down
I want to fly but its hard when you’re on the ground
I want to fly with you but its hard when you’re on the ground

So wake me up when the dream is over
Wake me up when the city’s gone blue
Wake me up when the building started
And I can sleep with you
Cause I’d just sleep right through

I always knew
If I could get you to walk through
I’d hide my bells from the outside
Hide my bells from the outside
And give them only to you

I could fly
If I wanted to go
You and I
We both know
Track Name: He Was the Dream
He was the dream
for the young

Yellow daisies
And Bare feet
I’d come running
Whenever we’d meet

Heavy blankets
On neighborhood streets
My long black hair
Go twisting around me

I know all this time I wasted
I know all the places we should go

He was the dream
He was the dream

Raymond Carver’s
Sad Stories
We’d never forget them
We’d never believe
All this time
We sat and nailed our hearts to the wall
And hoped for something

I know all this time I felt it
I see in the glass we know when it has to end and soon

He was the dream
He was the dream

You come back running
I fall on my face
I plead for something
I plead for grace
or something to hold me to love me and teach me….

I know all this time I wasted
He’s gone like the wind
He’s falling fast
He’s taken back

He was the dream
He was the dream
Track Name: Run
Run
for the invisible

I want to run to you
I want to fall
I want to run to you
I want to fall

I’m sorry I hurt you
I’m sorry
You don’t know what it’s like
I’m invisible…see through
I’m sorry
And no one says it right

I want to run to you
I want to fall

I want to run

oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh

I want to run to you
I want to run to you
I want to run to you
Track Name: Stretch the Ground
Stretch the ground
for the homeless

This is my own light
This is your own light
This is the world’s light
Share it now

This is my own voice
This is your own voice
This is the world’s voice
Hear it now

Stretch the ground
I look down

This is your own lie
This is my own lie
This is the world’s lie
I see it now

Stretch the ground
We all fall down

I can see it now
I can see it now
I can hear it now
Your shadow your footsteps they’re all the same

I can see it now
I can see it now
I can hear it now
Your shadow your footsteps they’re over me

This is my own tear
This is your own tear
This is the worlds tear
Hold it now

This is the world’s prayer
This is your own prayer
This is the my own prayer
Hold it now


Stretch the ground
We all fall down

I can see it now
I can see it now
I can hear it now
Your shadow your footsteps they’re all the same

I can see it now
I can hear it now
I can see it now
Your shadow your footsteps they’re over me


Stretch the ground
Hold it now
See it now
Don’t look down
Track Name: Tiny
Tiny
for the unborn

Tiny Mouse all curled in a moon
Stars twinkle around
It’s a big world
It’s already got you and me
So lets let the tiny be
Let the tiny be

Ferns curl in the forest
Life starts when we can’t see
Whispers through paths we don’t notice
So lets let the tiny be
Let the tiny be

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh

Ha Ha ha ha

I saw you inside you
A beautiful dream
You could tie us all together
With Ribbons and bows and strings

Seems not anybody dreams
Seems not anybody thinks
Seems not anybody sees anything

Seems not anybody dreams
Seems not anybody thinks
Seems not anybody sees anything
Track Name: He Wasn't Sleeping
He wasn’t sleeping
for the forgotten

He wasn’t sleeping
I stopped dreaming
He wasn’t sleeping
He wasn’t sleeping

oh oh oh
oh oh oh

He was he wasn’t sleeping
He was he wasn’t sleeping
He was he wasn’t sleeping
He was he wasn’t sleeping


I kept quiet
It was always around me
I was golden
Two bands …frozen

He was he wasn’t sleeping

A heart alone
grows cold

A heart alone
grows cold

My words my words were so unkind
My words my words were so unkind

We drive off in the night
We drive off in the night
We drive off in the night
We drive off in the night
We drive
Track Name: Room
Room
for the peacemaker

Maybe someday we won't need to talk
Maybe someday it’s all lost
Stars overhead and there is love
Maybe someday you’ll see there’s room for both of us

Maybe some day

I walked right through
You saw me coming
I gave my hand
You took it in
We smiled and laughed
The room was glowing
I felt it when you were behind my back
You were behind

Again and again I walk in the fire
Again again I walk right in
Again and again I walk in the fire
Again again I walk right in

But maybe someday we won’t need to talk
Maybe someday it’s all lost
Stars overhead and there is love
Maybe someday we’ll see there’s room for both of us

Cause there is room there is room there is room

There is room room
Stars go boom boom boom
I feel it soon soon soon
A moonlit blue blue blue
I dance all around gone gone
All around gone gone gone and

And maybe someday…
Track Name: You're Not Alone
You’re not alone
for the fearful

You’re not alone
You’re not alone

Trip on glass
Shattered stones
Shattered diamonds
Deep down
Shattered diamonds
Deep down
You're not alone

Take off your shoes

You’re not alone
Eyes so blue deep blue
Eyes so blue see through
I’m see through
See through

You’re not alone
You’re not alone
You’re not alone
Track Name: Walk On
Walk on
for the vulnerable

My body is small but my heart is big and open
I left it that way just in case you might walk in
Walk in

My body is small but my heart is big and open
I left it that way for the songs I sing for all the people

And soft breezes they blow on my cheeks
they blow on my cheeks they blow

And soft breezes they blow on my cheeks
they blow on my cheeks they blow

My body is small but my heart is big and open and open
I left it that way just incase you should walk in walk in

Oh breezes they blow on MY cheeks
breezes blow

One foot in front foot in front out I go
One foot in front foot in front out I go
Walk on walk on walk on

My voice is small but big inside but big inside and open
I left it that way because all I could do was sing from the heart for you

And breezes they blow blow
Breezes they blow, blow

And on my cheeks on my cheeks they blow

Walk on they say, walk on on on
Walk on they say, walk on on
Walk on walk on
Track Name: Home
Home
for the hopeless

Am I too old to come home
Sleep in my bed pull
Am I too old to come home
And set down the weight of my world

I know you're praying for me downstairs
I’ll get you back when I’m back on my feet
And you're praying for me
Hail Mary
Hail Mary

I want to go home
I want to go home
I want to go home

I’m second guessing my thoughts
How I come off when really I’m not
I feel like I’ll never be enough
No matter how much no matter what

I know you're praying for me downstairs
I’ll get you back when I’m back on my feet
And you're praying for me

Hail Mary
Hail Mary

I want to go home
I want to go home
I want to go home

And your praying for me
And your praying for me

I’ll get you back when I’m back on my feet
And you're praying for me
