Track Name: sprawl out
How the cities wash out
the trees and then they
sprawl out––
All my neighbors
have their families
but I don't understand.

When I was a stranger
I had to remember
not to open my mouth!

When I was a child
I had dreams of danger
walkin from my house!

eeee
eeee
eeee

when I'm older
I would like to
have a garden
and plant the seeds of my
of my youth! my youth! my youth was
in the ground there
but I had to
had to wait until it would thaw
in the spring! the spring! the spring––
it would thaw
it would thaw
it would thaw.

Now I long to be a stranger
walkin all across the mountains
swingin to the ancient sound!

How I'll have a long time
to remind my feet I
haven't left the ground!
Track Name: myside/yourside
waiting in my memories I don't want them to go
waiting in the silence I don't want to hold
I've got nowhere to be in the morning so I'll stay up
something tells me I'll soon have to wake up
I want to be your dandelion flower, I want to be your mid-day sun-shower
when the rains in august come pouring down

how long I've tried to follow the right steps
somewhere along it seems I've made a mess
but I've got a plan to wake in the morning
and face the sun
I've got to hold my time in my hands
before it's all
gone

I want to make sure that you know
if the world turns to dust
you won't be alone we'll
run away for the hillsides
through the snow

I want to make sure that you know
if the world turns to dust
you won't be alone we'll
run away for the hillsides
through the snow

lately I've been up in my head
lately I've been gone too long
calling for me are those old green mountains
my side's your side
everybody knows ––
Track Name: frolic song
I went to the woods where I came from
And met you there when we were young –
I wandered through a meadow in the sun
And followed you down to the river.

I'm waking from your dreams
And shaking all your bones –
And now the world is far away
The sun shone all its golden rays –

So call me anytime you'd like my dear –
So call me anytime you'd like my dear.

I went to the woods where I came from
And met you there when we were young –
We wandered through the fields
Of the berries and the flowers –
The nectar sweet and bitter!

I'm taking in your wind
And waking in your clothes –
The whisper of the countryside
And gentle breeze of morning light –

So call me anytime you'd like my dear –
So call me anytime you'd like my dear!
