Magic A spell of sage Exploding in the roadside A broken cage And the birds are out to kiss the sky Carried by the wind She’ll build a home to keep you warm Grounded by the earth He’ll be your shelter in the storm Take your time little child Don’t you go a growing up too fast now The world is full of magic It’s wonderful, it’s fragile Let’s try to make it last You arrived Vibrant over violent waters Had the tides Rejoicing over their new daughter Take your time little child Don’t you go a growing up too fast now The world is full of magic It’s wonderful, it’s fragile Let’s try to make it last Let’s try to make it last [repeat until fade]

Sapphire Skies Remember that day? When you realized That there is more to life That what you know The colors grew bright As they kissed your eyes And brought the highest highs And lowest lows It was then when there was something left to lose But some days the only hues that come are blue Ooh We could carry on Like birds that sing their songs into The night Sapphire skies Ring the morning in Ideas form within Our blooming minds And oh what a sight To see that daffodils Breaks through the winter’s chill And melt the ice Occupy the streets And let them hear your voice For there are others Who are waking up to join Ooh x2 [We will be heard Like a flock of birds that fly in] repeat to the night

6s+7s I am a kite on a string Packing up my bags picking up with the wind But I won’t be growing old I set my sights on sixes and sevens Stuck on earth and still searching for heaven But I don’t know where to go It’ll be alright It’ll be alright It’ll be alright [x2] I am a lioness Fire in my heart and a roar in my chest But I still purr like a cat I fell for the feathers in your hair The smile on your face and the jeans that you wear So I’d let you take me out It’ll be alright It’ll be alright It’ll be alright [x2] Heading out west on the six o’ clock train The timing was off and it started to rain But I’ll catch you on the road We’ll make it our home It’ll be alright It’ll be alright It’ll be alright [x2]

End of the Road Listen to the wind blow Leaving everything you know Oh Walk into the unknown Surely you will grow Oh When your world is unravelling fast Just know that the darkness will pass And at the end of the road you will have A faith that’s strengthened by the length of the path [x2] Truth will guide you home to Rest your weary bones Oh Seeking until death The bread and the breath Oh

Go and Grow It starts with a spark of light Magic markers are writing their stories on minds On the climb Unafraid to behave like a child Like a seed On the verge of revealing The secrets Of feeding on the sun [x2] The gardens will guide you They call out your name With their vibrancy violent violets Viable violins breaking the silence They’re rioting Rising from choirs the words that they sung… Oh Spring has been spring [2x] Oh let it grow Oh let it go The veils are all fading The irons are breaking And making a glorious noise It destroys All the shackles they shatter Our matter enraptured The knots that are tied up inside Are becoming all undone [x4] Oh let it grow Oh let it go

Peace of Mine I, I’m out to find A peace of mind Out in the sky I, I’m out to find A piece of mine Out in the sky Sitting on the red red rocks It won’t be long until the sun goes down and the lights turn on I’ve been moving up the coast on my luck it’s running low I’ve got to find myself a new place to go And when i look into the distance i can’t seem to tell If it’s a lie that i’m eyeing or heaven itself I’m on the hunt for the honey on the quest for wealth To drinking water from the deepest well. I, I’m out to find A peace of mind Out in the sky I, I’m out to find A piece of mine Out in the sky I’ve been dreaming of a place made of redwoods and wine The city lost its luster so i left it behind I set my sights up ahead to where the sun meets the eye And the land meets the sea and the sea meets the sky I’ve been sleeping on the beaches reaching up to the light And they’ve been guiding me home every single night And the hope that they glow til the day that we go Is enough to keep me high I, I’m out to find A peace of mind Out in the sky I, I’m out to find A piece of mine Out in the sky

Nothing Deep deep in the night No sleep in sight No easing my mind Rise rise from your beds Eyes apple red In search of the signs to show you That if you don’t mean it Your hopes will stay stuck in your head Step step after step This meaningless trek Is wearing my feet to my knees And i need air in my lungs A fire in my tongue And something worth spilling this blood for Cause if you’re not dreaming It seems that you’re already dead Your love parts the sky Your love splits the sea Your love has the mountains at your feet Your love lights a fire within me Your love [repeat] Oh the moment is gone And i carry on In search of that luminous now Bow bowing my head I wish to be lead Lead to the light are you listening? Cause without love There is nothing

To the Sun They took the blood from my body To fuel the machine It’s got me drained in reality And in my dreams The curtain in between Slowly ripped at the seams It’s got me saying things that i don’t mean I’ve been sitting at the table With the wolves and the kings And i’ve been blinded by the brightness Of their diamonds and things I’ve been grieving for that feeling That i had but it’s gone And there’s no looking back When you’re moving on They ask me what will you do And where will you go? I don’t know but i’m leaving on my bicycle Cause to make the great escape You need to have a little faith My love we’re on the run From the barrels of a gun But keep your chin up Keep your feet moving strong Cause it’s a long way to the sun I’ve been given limitation I’ve been living in fear And i’ve been wading through the river For the truth to come clear I’ve been waiting on the lord To come and set me free But when we got to the gates They had no space for me So if i’m not gonna make it out either way Tell me what’s the use of Staying sane I’ve got nothing to lose By playing the fool Just like the preacher in the subway Saying the world will end soon And if they call you mad I’m glad to have you on our side Just lock your eyes to the stars And all the signs of our times Just listen to the fire Let your heart be your guide Cause there’s no place to hide in the moonlight My love we’re on the run From the barrels of a gun But keep your chin up Keep your feet moving strong Cause it’s a long way to the sun

Still Here The sun Burns the leaves To a fiery red The water escapes To claim its place In the heavens above But we’re down here below Watching the wind Wondering where does it go? Oh Wondering where does it go. And i’ll travel through the mountains Ramblin’ on my own Asking where oh where did i come from Where oh where is my home In my New York City apartment I stare out the window Watching the smoke blow out To the streets And it greets All the grey It’s unclear Why we’re staring at lights Asking why we’re still here? Here, asking why we are still here? And I’ll travel through the cities Ramblin’ on my own Asking where oh where will i go to Where oh where is my home?

The Other Side Though I walk through the valleys Of the shadows of death I fear not for my life For I, I’ve seen the light And in darkness i’ve wandered To the end of the line At the end of my rope Feeling empty inside With no more tears to cry If you feel like a soul without a home Just remember that you are not alone Oh as the fog rolls in Covering everything The road you once knew is gone Just take a breath Keep on moving ahead And i’ll see you on the other side If you look to the sky and you only see grey Holding on to what’s gone well just throw it away Know that better days, better days, better days Are to come If you feel like a soul without a home Just remember that you are not alone [Oh as the fog rolls in Covering everything The road you once knew is gone] x3 Just take a breath Keep on moving ahead And [i’ll see you on the other side] repeats until end

Wildhearts Our minds are aligned By this appetite For a night time brightened By our quiet lights I think too much my head is always rushing I’m losing touch with my dreams But with your kiss it all comes back to me Oh won’t you come back to me I find it hard to sleep Without you beside me In the daily race it’s all work and no play Wasting our youth away And losing our fight to stay Come with me out of this city And oh let’s make a home Where the wildhearts roam I’m out west with the restless Wind at my side Trying to leave all my demons behind Late at night waiting up to see all the stars Counting down the hours Till i’m there where you are Come with me across the country And oh let’s make a home Where the wildhearts roam We have spun around the sun Too long since i’ve seen your face Searching all the world But nothing could take your place And there’s too much time and space Between our embrace. Come with me over the oceans And oh let’s make a home Where the wildhearts roam.
