about

Many thanks to Seth Johnson--the most extraordinary, talented, yet humble musician I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with, and all the musicians and engineers who worked on this record.

Thank you to Peter Hapak, Stephanie Butterworth, Alexander Kalkines, Damien Bonelli, Elin Grönblom, Jon Fordham & crew, to Rob Ebletoft, Rory Gage, Frank Sedivy, and to my husband who walked me through the many dark and joyous turns of this long project.

Thank you to my friends, family, and to everyone who contributed to help make this record possible.

Track Name: Too Quiet Still
The Thought of you the words you used and still
Cling to me my memory until
Unforgiving nights leave me hanging

Ooh

Too quiet still your voice once filled

Lovely girl who grows to share your face
Yearns to hear of lands with wild horses
I read to her she asks for different voices

Ooh

Too quiet still your voice once filled

Smoke, steel, and sirens
How dark the sky was
When the phone rang out
And I learned how thin life was

Ooh

Too quiet still your voice once filled
Track Name: Summer Nights
Warm summer nights
Lilly in the air tonight
Heavy breeze
Brings back memories of

You

Warm wind carry me tonight, tonight
Ease my wants and soothe my mind

I still recall
Shades of it all
Your skin in June
The light in the room

I still recall
Shades of it all
The bridge at night
The city of lights

Warm summer nights
Lilly in the air tonight
Heavy breeze
Brings back memories of

You

Warm winds carry me tonight, tonight
Ease my wants and soothe my mind

I still recall
Shades of it all
Your skin in June
The light in the room

I still recall
Shades of it all
That rounding dawn
That moment gone
Track Name: 100 Wants
Hold your breath and count to ten
I'll breath out and you breath in
in the grass so tall and thin
you'll breath out and I'll breath in

Kiss you in the morning when
dreams are fading out and in
listening and listen in
I'll breath out and You'll breath in

Ooh, I wanna be good to you
Ooh, I wanna be good for you

Shifting in the cool beneath
our honey moon has set us free
a hundred wants are running deep
lift my hand, my mouth to speak

Ooh, I wanna be good to you
Ooh, I wanna be good for you

All those scars shine like rubies
all those bars add up to be
the most genuine
the most genuine

This again, we're back again
been through this time and again
when will you finally listen
you'll ask me and I'll breathe in

Ooh, I wanna be good to you
Ooh, I wanna be good for you
Track Name: By the Rope
Illiterate at times
Can't find the words
To calm my nerves
To calm my nerves

Ooh, No tiger, house, or hill
Heavy on me could quell
This desert in my throat
This beast in me
Has got me by the rope
Me by the rope

An anger in me surge with rage
Burns up
The feeling fades
The feeling fades

Ooh, No tiger house or hill
Heavy on me could quell
This desert in my throat
This beast in me
Has got me by the rope
Me by the rope

Sorry I've learned to say
I'll try and change
Said yes too many times
I'll find a way

Illiterate at times
Can't find the words
To calm my nerves
To calm my nerves

A bottle break
Another drink
Oh let me sink
To calm my nerves

Ooh, No tiger, house or hill
Heavy on me could quell
Ooh, This desert in my throat
This beast in me
Has got me by the rope
Me by the rope
Track Name: Turn You Out
I've gotta figure out
Which way to turn you out
I've gotta hope and pray
This times gonna make you beg

Blind and spinning fast
This time gonna make it last
I've gotta hope and pray
This times gonna make you beg

When you get to know about your love
I wanna be the last one on your rung (4X)

I've gotta figure out
Which way to turn you out
I've gotta hope and pray
This times gonna make it rain

I'll come on slowly
If you bring it wholly
I'll come on slowly
If you bring it wholly

When you get to know about your love
I wanna be the last one on your rung (4X)
Track Name: Fool's Gold
You told me that you'd stay with me
and shelter me forever
that was a hard promise to keep
I don't blame you for the bad weather

After all that has been said and done
I won't ask you where you're going
don't keep in touch, I don't miss you much
except sometimes early in the morning

Now use your silver tongue once more
there's one thing that I'd like to know
did you ever believe the lies that you told
did you earn the fool's gold that you gave me

I forgive your wanting to be free
I realize you long to wonder
and I sympathize with those roving eyes
I just can't forgive your bad manners

Now use your silver tongue once more
there's one thing that I'd like to know
did you ever believe the lies that you told
did you earn the fools gold that you gave me
Track Name: So Low, So High
Hold your head up high
With no end in site

So low, then so high
So low, then so high

ooh

With each step you take
Wind somewhere near or late
Shadows of our might
Falls in and out of sight


So low, then so high
So low, then so high

This is how we walk
This is how we walk
This is how we walk on the Moon

Each step is movin', movin' me up
movin', movin' me up
Every step is movin' me up
Everystep is movin' me up
Track Name: Chop Wood
Chop wood and we carry water
chop wood and we carry water

Gold gilded visions, shapes in the distance
Sated mirages hold on to the prospects
And I can't seem to make out
Progress with motion, good work with devotion

We chop wood and we carry water
And we chop wood and we carry water

Oh this Motion
Blind devotion

Oh this Motion
Blind devotion

Gold gilded visions, shapes in the distance
Sated mirages hold on to the prospects
And I can't seem to make out
Progress with motion, good work with devotion

Over and over, over and over, over and over, over and over, over and over, over and over, over and over, over and over.
