Music Box 02:52
MUSIC BOX I been dancing with skeletons Old dreams lost, yeah a long time gone. Like when I was your music box And you’d wind me up and I’d play for us... I been talking ‘bout consciousness Just wondering, waiting for some more progress Oh if I could be your music box. And you’d wind me up and I’d play for us… I been dancing with picture frames Paintings that move when you look away Oh if I could be your music box You wind me up and I play for us

RABBIT IN THE MOON Moon is up but it’s not late C’mon don’t hesitate If you don’t bite, then you won’t taste The very sweetest thing. Well, I could have it three times a day, But then, you know, I’d waste away Besides you’ve heard it the same as me We’re bound to reap what we sow. C’mon darling take my hand, Let me lead you down a garden path With honeysuckle and wild roses Let my hair fly round these breezes Whisper mysteries into my curls Exhale as my soul unfurls Never knew I could stand and fly Both at the exact same time There’s a rabbit in the moon And I see light shine from you Oh sweet lord almighty don’t let day come to soon. Lay me down on the ferns and ivy Lay yourself on down beside me Least that’s how we could explain These things biblically I see a rabbit in the moon I see light shine from you Oh sweet lord almighty Don’t let day come too soon.

Brimful I'm gonna drink my brimful down to the middle cause I gotta, cause I wanna cause it's sweet I'm gonna take the middle down to a mouthful cause I'm ready, cause I'm thirsty cause it's cool. I'm ready to dive in, and swim and swim and swim for that far shore. I'm wanting more. More and more, more and more and more. I'm gonna tell my waiter to pour me another cause I'm needy cause I'm greedy cause I'm dry I'm gonna drink this one down to the bottom like it's a problem only I can fix. I'm ready to dive in, and swim and swim and swim for that far shore. I'm wanting more. More and more, more and more and more

BIRD IN THE HAND A bird in the hand or on the wing Each is its own precious thing And yet I extend my heart A place for you to perch and maybe call your own Love, our love, remains a precious thing Held in my hands or on the wing So tell me who am I to think that I could tame Such a wild beating heart such a flurry of wings And yet I know your name And you call me your own Love, our love, remains a precious thing Held in my hands or on the wing. My soul is a tree who’s branches hold my heart My hearts a downy nest made by you my sweet bird You went and laid some eggs, precious little flecked things Each one a new beginning for someone else's tree. A bird in the hand or on the wing Each is it’s own precious thing And yet I extend my heart A place for you to perch maybe call your own.

Heartbreaker 02:49
HEARTBREAKER Look me in the eye and tell me that lie one more time What can I do? But tell you the truth? And it's gonna hurt. I don't like it any more than you do but that doesn't change it. We all mess up now and then in and in real life you can't erase it. If you wanna be with me well now's your chance to fess and face it. Cause I don't wanna be that girl and I dont wanna be your and I don't wanna be a... Heartbreaker. Wouldn't it be sweet if we could be free from all this mess. But the truth that I know isn't gonna go away cause you asked. I don't like it any more than you do but that doesn't change it. We all mess up now and then in and in real life you can't erase it. If you wanna be with me well now's your chance to fess and face it. Cause I don't wanna be that girl and I dont wanna be your and I don't wanna be a... Heartbreaker.

Say The Same 03:47
SAY THE SAME You read my journal - page where I list out all your faults. Of course you’re hurt and now you’re mad at me as well Well who am I to say the way you should be or not be? And who are you to turn and say the same to me? I’ll lose my head if you don’t go read the next page. Where I go over why I’ll always need you near. Well who am I to say who I should need or not need? And who are you to turn and say the same to me? You know I love the way you put me in my place. Of course it helps that my place is in your heart. Well I for one would like to ask for your arms around me. And maybe you could turn and say the same to me.

Grindstone 04:10
GRINDSTONE Zora speaking through Janey, she told me one rainy afternoon. She said Love, it ain’t no grindstone that’s gonna work the same no matter who’s hand pushes ‘round on some old crank. Nonono love, she’s a living thing Moves like the sea Gonna wash you over and crash down on me. Your love, it ain’t like they love Nobody ever had none if they don’t make none. No Love, it ain’t no grindstone that’s gonna work the same no matter who’s hand pushes ‘round on some old crank. Love, she’s a living thing sweet as a breeze Gonna blow you over and kiss my sweet cheek. My love it ain’t like they love You know you need to make some if you wanna have some. Love, it ain’t no grindstone that’s gonna work the same no matter who’s hand pushes ‘round on some old crank. Love, she’s a living thing Sweet as a spring! Go’wan, dip your cup in and have yo’self a drink! Our love, it aint like they love. Nobody ever had none quite like our own.

But I want you here with me My darling, my lovely To feel the tug pull me in, pull me in to our electric love cause oh it sings to me la de da de dee and as the raven flies another raven dies and as the bird sings she needs nothing and oh I hope its what God has for me yeah that’d be fine that’s alright by me cause. I’m a back up singer. I’m just good company. But I want you here with me My darling, my lovely To feel the tug pull me in, pull me in to our electric love cause oh it sings to me la de da de dee
