Track Name: Dimes
Through the campus I pocket some dimes
that I know my lover is leaving behind.
She left them behind for her fate to decide
the oddity of a lover collecting her dimes

A loony venture is what they will tell you
that a women's the fruition of a coin collector
An angel told me through a dime it's spoken
since then it's just made sense.

A penny for your wishes a dime for your lover
These coins will lead me to you
One day you'll lay on my chest and say
you've dutifully collected all my loose change
you've dutifully collected all my loose change

Its not about thinking, loving or dreaming
but finding a way to pocket my wife
heads or tails these coins will never fail
to compel my collecting for you

A penny for your wishes a dime for your lover
These coins will lead me to you
One day you'll lay on my chest and say
you've dutifully collected all my loose change
you've dutifully collected all my loose change
Track Name: Harvest Moon
On a hot summer night I did sing to the breeze
in hopes it lift my voice onto your ears.
As I finished my cry I did look to the eastern sky
in hopes I'd see the stars behind your face.

That your beauty would light
the dying in my skin
Remind me of my youth and
the songs I used to sing
as the summer fades away.

Where are you my harvest moon
shine some light on this night so I can see.
In this lonely place I look for faith
lead me on to your moon.

I hear the dogs bay my name
as I hide in this way
orphaned by my insanity.

From the mouth of this grave
I will sing in delay
for the true love I once had
that gone while I've gone mad
from eyes too blind to see.

Where are you my harvest moon
shine some light on this night so I can see.
In this lonely place I look for faith
lead me on to your moon.

I sing to the breeze
in hopes it will bring
my voice onto your ears

Where are you my harvest moon
shine some light on this night so I can see.
In this lonely place I look for faith
lead me on to your moon.
Track Name: Hearts Treason
She's got nobody
tangled close to her.
They kissed goodbye this morning
and she knew he'd never return.

There her stone breaks
and the love she gave falls
on through the cracks.

Oh I believe against you I set my treason
making love I knew that I would soon be leaving.
Oh I believe I'm accused of hearts treason
but somehow you know I'll walk alone this broken road.
Looking for you
Looking for you

She found a country boy
his hammer to the home he's got big plans
And she'll be his princess
beauty wrapped in porcelain skin.

But for a while she will wait
for the prodigal love of yesterday.

Oh I believe against you I set my treason
making love I knew that I would soon be leaving.
Oh I believe I'm accused of hearts treason
but somehow you know I'll walk alone this broken road.
Looking for you
Looking for you
Track Name: Blood Red Skies
She went on down
to the sea turned around
She said "boy won't you come and play with me?"

But Grandpa he said
girls that smoke those cigarettes
will always get you in trouble.

I trotted down to the sea and I drowned
that was yesterday
it was not a good day

Singing blood red skies on the sea make me believe.
When you turn your sails to the east
a pirate's greed is what you'll see
a pirate's greed is what you'll

I was cold and alone
the fishes nibble at my bones
from the ocean floor.

It's crazy I know.
I should have never left my boat
but she said she would stay and wait for me.
She did say she would wait for me.

But it's funny how we chase those things life
we know will always leave us broken.
My God I know I am broken

Singing blood red skies on the sea make me believe.
When you turn your sails to the east
a pirate's greed is what you'll see
a pirate's greed is what you'll see
Track Name: Falling
It's the little pieces of ourselves
we give to someone else to hide.

It's the claim to love we think we hold
but when it's gone we have to say goodbye

It's the places that I'll never go
the pages of the story I can't write

So I'll sing from the basement
life as it's changing

I'm falling from your face
I'm calling out your name
She takes two steps his way
Tears fall down on the window pane
Tears fall down on the window
the window pane

Volin strings do sing
a boy to sleep a letter he got in the mail.

Close your heavy eyes to sleep
something sweet to dream away this hell.

It's the places that I'll never go
the pages of the story I can't write.

So I'll sing from the basement
life as it's changing
yes I'll sing from the basement
life as it's changing

I'm falling from your face
I'm calling out your name
She takes two steps his way
Tears fall down on the window pane
Tears fall down on the window pane
Track Name: Reminder
I slept with the radio on
a children's bible and a rosary.
'Cause it's never more lonely
then the night you lay awake, your mind in a race
and everyone but you has fallen asleep.

It does scare me.
That I might live this life alone.
I saw the book of John on the table.
They say it should make sense
depending how it's read
but I can't seem to figure it out.

I put my faith up on the shelf.
(to wrestle with another day)

Collecting dust will hide its face.
(these days just seem so convoluted)

as my mind runs away .
God, damn my heart it keeps on breaking
for the love you said is worth saving.

There was a tattoo on his arm
it will remind him of the day he said he was saved.
But today he doesn't know because the church is not home
they left him in the cold and on his arm he sees an ink stain.

I put my faith up on the shelf.
(to wrestle with another day)

Collecting dust will hide its face.
(these days just seem so convoluted)

as my mind runs away .
God, damn my heart it keeps on breaking
for the love you said is worth saving.
Track Name: Cover Me My Star
Your eyes are sharp and innocent.
as we peel our clothing to the floor

My heart will race as I stand and wait
for this foreign beauty to unravel.

Finger tips across my cheek
that fall onto my collar.

With a sculptor's hands I uncover
the artistry of your skin.

With a crash our bodies wrap
we lie onto the floor
Your legs like vines twist into mine
your beauty falls around me.

Cover me my star in the dark tonight
your hip be the cup that pours your body into mine.
Speak in tongues our souls are one as we
breathe the breath of each other.

This world is cruel but I look at you
folded in my arms.

To feel this life cut by the knife
my hands could mend these scars

So peel your eyes and read my mind.
bite the round of your lip.

Break the bread and drink the wine
lay down our armor .
Like a puzzle piece you fit with me
and I long for single form.

Cover me my star in the dark tonight
your hip be the cup that pours your body into mine.
Speak in tongues our souls are one as we
breathe the breath of each other.
Track Name: Cellar Door
Sit in the dark and tell me your secrets.
These thoughts in my head always teasing.
Turn the key unlock the cellar door
Hold my hand let's walk a little deeper.

Hazy eyes talk about life that makes you cry
something deep with in the secret.
It was a simple bottle labeled with mistake
and the theif would know your name

Hold on this is going to hurt
won't you tell me your story
How could this have happened to me.
These sort of things were never meant to be.

I want to touch your heart and not your skin
feel your words and not your lips.
Beauty worth its weight in gold.

Good friends we've had and good friends we've lost
in life's hour glass
Its funny how time and circumstance
can change the dreams we've had.

Hold on this is going to hurt
won't you tell me your story
How could this have happened to me.
These sort of things were never meant to be.

I want to touch your heart and not your skin
feel your words and not your lips.
Beauty worth its weight in gold.
Track Name: Sweet Stalker
Letters blink on the screen
my heart begins to sink.
A familiar name comes across
a name I tried to forget.

He charmed me with a note
those beautifully devious words he wrote.
There was a scheme behind those lines
a con to make me his bride.

Hello Madame I am your sweet stalker man.

Common sense begins to sift
my father's words had poisoned me.
How he hates when I ask for space
gives me the chance to walk away

I did play her games.
I let her think it was okay.
Just gave me the time
to design her confine
and make her my destiny.

I'm in the palm of his hand
my sweet stalker man.
I may leave him for a while
but I am always on his mind

Wherever you do go
please remember my jealous heart will know.
please remember my jealous heart will know.

Across two states I will drive
all alone in the middle of the night.
Her sleep is broke by the ring
somehow she knows I am at her door with
coffee and cream.

Oh to fear my dear is good.
For fear you'll never leave me.
One day you'll learn to love
the manipulation that I bring.

Hello Madame I am your sweet stalker man.
You might leave me for a while but you're always on my mind.
Wherever you do go
please remember my jealous heart will know.
please remember my jealous heart will know.
