Becoming You
(unreleased track. mp3 available on OGG)

Ha ha ha, we float our way through this lonely world, again you say
"It's funny how the years go by when you never stop singing"

Well it gets so easy riding on your shadow my ideas get lost amid your own.
Count the days and spaces filled with cars and cases, robots, sand and seafoam.

We sing the song we wrote when we were kids for so long.
Paper clips, and long road trips, make for silly stories.

Well it got so easy riding on your shadow my ideas get lost amid your own.
Count the days and spaces filled with cars and cases, robots, sand and seafoam.

Becoming you.

Blackened Crown
(released on "EP1" and "EP2". mp3 available on OGG)

A face broken upstairs I fall down
Tumbling I lose my ground
Paint my hair a blackened crown
Lift my head as I cry out

Did you hear me holler at you
to come save me I'm in danger
My pearls have fallen into mud
and you were too late

This breath precious to you
knocked from me
Taken so faintly and
I never feel 'till it's too late

Did you hear me holler at you
to come save me I'm in danger
My pearls have fallen into mud
and you are too late.

Brightly Wound
(released on "Room Noises")

(Stacy's verse)
I am just wishing you were here, so we coud walk down to the brook.
And we would throw all our leaves in, seeing our dragon when we look.

(Sherri's verse)
It's happening all the time, When I open my eyes, I'm still taken by surprise,
You have shining eyes, yes like those forest lights, and it makes me want to cry.

I love you..

Chorus
I shall never grow up, Make believe is much too fun.
Can we go far away to the humming meadow, This place is so lovely.
It kind of makes me very happy. Can we go far away to the humming meadow?

(Stacy's verse)
I Am just wishing you were here, So we could walk down to the brook.
And we would throw all our leaves in, seeing our dragon when we go.

(Sherri's verse)
We we're walking there, I had tangles in my hair, but you make me feel so pretty.
I hold sunlight, and swallow butterflies and it makes me want to cry.

I love you...

Dream For Me
(released on "EP1" and "EP2".)

Night falls... am I dreaming?
The fears are toying with my head
and I'm swept away by the wind
And I can't fight them anymore... anymore.

Frantically I run for my life. Oh, I'm faint with fear
Chase me down with your knife
and I don't want to die
Chase me down with your knife

Tears of pain and salt fall once again
Your twisted schemes scrape my mind with your hand
and I don't want to die
Chase me down with your knife

Sleep my little child and rest in me...

The Escaping Song
(unreleased track)

I felt the wind shifting back on us
Hold on we have to run

But we can't escape there's no way
They'll call our names through the speakers
La, ah
La, ah

When they find you, they'll retrieve you
Take you where sphered domes will freeze you

But we can't escape there's no way
They'll call our names through the speakers
La, ah
La, ah

Men would die at sea for you
But all I want is you
Men would live and die for you
But all I want is you, you

These beautiful moments we shared together
All end now
They'll make me drink this potion; I'll sleep forever
Until I wake under the glacier ground

The ground
The ground, oh yeah

Golly Sandra
(released on "Room Noises")

G-g-g-golly Sandra
You've grown up really crazy
Have I been too denying of you
G-golly Sandra
You've grown up so crazy
Have I been too untrusting

Take me down to the bridge
Where you know that I'll always love you
And I'll go without stopping
Oh you are my scar, and that's not really far
Hey, hey

G-g-g-golly Sandra
You've grown up really crazy
Have I been too denying of you
G-golly Sandra
You've grown up so crazy
Have I been too untrusting

Take me down to the bridge
Where you know that I'll always love you
And I'll go there without stopping
Oh you are my scar, and that's not really far
Hey, hey

Well I guess I should have been around
To sing you too sleep
You look so beautiful
It hurts me slightly
Oh, oh

Oh you are my scar, and that's not really far
Hey, hey
Oh you know that I have tried so hard
For you, for you

Head Against the Sky
(released on "EP2")

Sleep with your head against the sky tonight.
I can't count how many times you have made me cry.
I marvel at the way your hair glows in the light.

There's one who cares for me today.

I've watched you grow up child, you have made me proud.
I love the way your hand fits so nicely in mine.
I always screw up, I wonder how you sing to me.

There's one who cares for me today.

I Wasn't Prepared
(released on "Laughing City EP" and "Room Noises")

When the day is blue, I'll sit here wondering about you
and how the pollen fell all around your face in strange yellow patterns.

But, I wasn't prepared for this.

When the morning came the bees flew down and wrapped themselves around me,
And that's when I spoke a word, to have them trace your face for me in pollen.

But, I wasn't prepared for this.

Come back, come back to me, my darling.

Just Like We Do
(released on "Room Noises")

Dear, did you know that people love each other
Just like we do
Just like they do
Dear did you know you're all I ask for
So hold on to me
Hold on with me here

And there are things that follow us
Quietly to the past
We've seen all those faces
We won't go looking for trouble

The rain tumbled down through the cracks in the sky
Which made your hands grow
Watch your hands grow

But we still see through their planks, shifting laughs
We'll hold the hands of sinners and we will pass

Oooh ah
Oooh ah
Oooh ah

Lost at Sea
(released on "Room Noises")

Sailing over wave and tide, oh
Fantastic waves against the sides of the hull
And I'm not so afraid, lost at sea, as I should be
And I'm not so afraid, lost at sea, you and I, you and me

Congratulations 'cause we made it
All the way home, all the way home
And you know that until the stars fall
I will always love you, I will always love you

The mystery of salt and sea, oh
Has never been intriguing, oh
To me, but the sea green is set so beautifully
Against your thoughtful face that I must close my eyes
Or turn my face

Congratulations 'cause we made it
All the way home, all the way home
And you know that until the stars fall
I will always love you, I will always love you

Still floating soft
I am dreaming, and I'm glad I'm lost
And still
With my fingers drawing circles
In water, in water
And still, still you're always there

Congratulations 'cause we made it
All the way home, all the way home
And you know that until the stars fall
I will always love you, I will always love you

Lullaby
(unreleased track)

After the moon comes up, all of the toys behind closed doors
open their eyes and move their squeaky joints across the floor.
Rocking horses run, tinker toys assembling,
twisting mobile stars, dancing dolls and spinning cars.

Stop, will you stop? Will you stop and speak to me?
Wake, I know you're awake. Move your mouth and speak to me.
I'm not the kind who will take it for granted,
no, I'm not the kind who will take it for granted.

How I would like to know all the toy soldiers in a row,
marching to and fro, all the tin soldiers in a row.
Tiny painted mouths, how I wish you'd utter now,
words of nursery rhyme, tongue and teeth all click in time.

Stop, will you stop? Will you stop and speak to me?
Wake, I know you're awake. Move your mouth and speak to me.
I'm not the kind who will take you for granted,
no, I'm not the kind who will take you for granted.

Marvelous Things
(released on "Marvelous Things EP" and "Room Noises")

I awoke the dawn
saw horses growing out the lawn
ah ah .....

I glimpsed a bat with butterfly wings
oh what marvelous things
ah ah....

Chorus
Dark night...hold tight, and sleep tight
my baby
Morning light...shall burst bright
and keep us here safely

I followed a rabbit
through rows of mermaid entwined shrubbery
Ah ah....
Oh what marvelous things but, they are, they are, they are
giving me the creeps

Dark night...hold tight, and sleep tight
my baby
Morning light...shall burst bright
and keep us here safely

Bridge
Oh...lying in the sun
everday feeling all of the magic in life
and the wonder.....

Dark night...hold tight, and sleep tight
my baby
Morning light...shall burst bright
and keep us here safely
morning light...shall burst bright
and keep us here safely
Ah ah.....

Memories
(released on "Marvelous Things EP" and "Room Noises")

He was throwing grain into the ground below, ground below
With dreary circles of his arm, going slow, very slow
His cap pulled down roun' his ears to
hide the smile and watery tears

My loving wife is so wonderful
how small seeds gracefully to grow
into musical things that spring from these rows
With their musical names and musical sound

Dreary birds parade across the dreary sky, but down below
the woman absent mindedly begins to sow, how she sows the
seeds her husband loved so much, but he's no longer
here with us

But her life is so beautiful
as memories continue to grow
into musical things that spring from these rows
With their musical names and musical sound
Beautiful things that spring from these rows
with their musical names and musical sounds, and musical sounds

(Husband speaking)
Distant tho I am
orange, gold, and green
firing, flaming, colors surround me
(Wife)
I was just wondering where you are?
I was just wondering where you are?
(Husband)
Darling shouldn't I be the one
wondering after all I am the one who is gone
Darling shouldn't I be the one
wondering after all I am the one who is gone
(Wife) I was just wondering
(Husband) I was just wondering
(Wife) I was just wondering
(Husband)
I'm the one...who is gone
I'm the one...who is gone
who is gone

But, there's beautiful things that spring from these rows
With their musical names, and musical sounds
there's beautiful things that spring from these rows
With their musical names, and musical sounds
and musical sounds.
