Track Name: Sparrow
it's yours, not mine
take it and break the tie
til i forget every line we wrote

somehow it took a year
laid bare, crystal clear
we became everything we feared
we would

sparrow | sparrow | sparrow
i won't fly again until you

the price of playing young
learning not to hold your tongue
and letting go where you have clung
too tightly even though
there were more songs to be sung

maybe sparrow songs can last
i've learned this much from the past
that when a thing is built too fast
it's weak

sparrow | sparrow | sparrow
i won't fly again until you
Track Name: Bravest of Voice
it's a summer dress
your very best
catching his eye across the room and
feeling heart's duress

were they pleasant days
or just a happy haze
every angle could be any of
so many ways

bravest of voice
did you think you had a choice?
bravest of voice,
be. or just leave.

in a cruel quarrel
silently unfurled
too late we recognize the 'other'
neither clay nor pearl

a winter dark
it left a mark
and the cold communion nails still
clinging to the bark

bravest of voice
did you think you had a choice?
bravest of voice,
be. or just leave.

it's a late spring shower
and i picked a flower
to remind me:
choose sweet and never sour
Track Name: Cherry Trees
we grew our love beyond the mountains
beneath the cherry trees
hearts entwined yet fresh and fragile
as petals on the breeze

sing once for me, once for you
and once more for the girl
free and airy - we weren't wary
and what a price we paid

something stirred a doubtful ripple
responding to the moon
whispered then an ancient tale
in reiterating tune

sing once for me, once for you
and once more for the girl
words not meant - we further bent
til they pierced through the calm

were my fears laid out in script
played within my mind?
do injured eyes see false surprises
determined not to be blind?

sing once for me, once for you
and once more for the girl
if that she was made by me
i'd rather now not know
Track Name: Ice in the Desert
kyrie | keep me | kyrie

oh - those words
oh - i don't feel it anymore
oh - if these stones could speak
oh - of the sun

kyrie | keep me | kyrie

oh - two minded
oh - better left unheard
oh - in the desert
oh - my voice

kyrie | keep me | kyrie

oh - the ice
oh - does the water team below
oh - is there life?
oh -

kyrie | keep me | kyrie
Track Name: Echo In
there is a calmness in the silence
a reprieve from the din
just a few notes repeating
echo in

a/tone for every key that got broken
for beauty and for loss
of recompense for the things
that we tossed

there's a breeze that is stirring
it cools my feverish mind
and it's no longer burning
i know what i left behind

carry me | carry me home

you travelled north and i walked south
looking for the same door
maybe someday we'll ask:
'what was it for?'

there's a breeze that is stirring
it cools my feverish mind
and it's no longer burning
i know what i left behind

carry me | carry me home
Track Name: Stay Awhile
when your bones feel old
your joints ache from the cold
so much is left untold
i will stay awhile

when all that's left
is heaviness in your chest
the pieces all a mess
i will stay awhile

the sun will shine tomorrow
a little brighter than today
and the memories of your sorrow
will pass along their way

when the world forgot
but you cannot
lost in the sea of thoughts
i will stay awhile

though nothing comes for granted
the sun will shine another day
and the movements of the planets
will pass along their way

and the pain that almost swallowed
plant it in the earth
where once there was a hollow
life springs up from the dirt

but for now
i'll be here anyhow

i will stay awhile
