Green Eyed Girl

I'd be soft, I'd be sweet, I'd be everything you need
I'd be your Green Eyed Girl
I'd be yours, you'd be mine, It'd be simple all the time
I'd be your Green Eyed Girl

Now I'm nothing special, and you're nothing new
and we go together, us two

You'd be strong and warm, shelter me from the storm
I'd be your Green Eyed Girl
It'd be right, it'd be true, go together like sun and moon
I'd be your Green Eyed Girl

Now I'm nothing special, and you're nothing new
and we go together, us two
 
 
Train

You handed me a ski mask and you said that we were going to rob a bank
And we were on our way until you pulled us into the lake and we sank
And then you pulled me out, and then I realized
That robbing up and bank, we'd never compromise
and we'd fight over money, you'd never call me honey, so I left

And you said go, get on the train
I will wait for you
Go, get on the train
I will wait for you

We met up back in Santa Fe and then you'd said you'd wanna run away with me
So then we packed my bags and things and furniture and TV screens and left our house and tree
And then we pulled away, away from Santa Fe
And then I realized I'd have to cook food every day
I don't know how to cook, You'd have to cook for me, so I left

And you said go, get on the train
I will wait for you
Go, get on the train
I will wait for you

We met up again in my dream and you said things move faster than they seem
And then I looked in the mirror and realized I looked younger in the dream
So then I ran to you, and told you I was ready
You made me feel so safe, so safe and Oh so steady
Then you said you were scared of us losing all our hair, so you ran

And I  said go, get on the train
I will wait for you
Go, get on the train
I will wait for you

Go, get on the train
I will wait for you
Go, get on the train
I will wait for you
 

Becoming Someone

I grew up on the outskirts of town
I was young, wanted to go out of bounds
Then a man touched my soul, a man made me feel whole
a man asked me to leave home

Cuz' all that I saw were the cracks on the wall
and the pavement of paper skidded to a halt
we were craving an adventure, our bodies were aching
for feet on the ground, get me lost, throw me down
burn me up, let me out in the sun
Thirsty to be someone

I gained age on the side of the shore
I could swim but was fishin' for more
Then my man spoke to me, baby it's time to leave
by April, we were packing for three

Cuz' all that we saw were the cracks on the walls
and the pavement of paper skidded to a halt
we were craving an adventure, our bodies were aching
for feet on the ground, get me lost, throw me down
burn me up, let me out in the sun
Thirsty, me my man and my baby
On the run

I grew old, tired I became
Of the years playin' the same game
Then my man whispered dear
you have nothing to fear
All of us die and some of us live lives
And thank heaven I found you on the outskirts of town
you were craving an adventure
your body were achin'
for feet on the ground get us lost throw us down
burn me up, let me out in the sun
Thirsty to be
Someone
 

Paper Planes

Road's been blocked off and we're lost
ten days ago, I told you to stop
you would not halt, nor would you steer
so now we're here

Rain starts to fall on our backs
Ten days ago we were moving too fast
you would not take, nor would I give
So now we live

If you'd just listen to me
Hold me too close as close as can be
You'll never drown, drown in this rain
Pull me along and I won't complain
If you'd just listen to me
we could recover from this disease
same paper routes, same paper planes
now let us escape from this rain

The world is of cheap fixed attire
father said not, for he is a liar
Ten days ago my heart did not ache, I need a break
I miss your belated laughs
from all of the jokes I told much too fast
you would not take nor would I give
So now we live

If you'd just listen to me
Hold me too close as close as can be
You'll never drown, drown in this rain
Pull me along and I won't complain
If you'd just listen to me
we could recover from this disease
same paper routes, same paper planes
now let us escape from this rain

Road's been blocked off and I'm tired
tired of feeling expired
Ten days ago my heart did not ache
I need a break

Road's been blocked off and I'm tired
Tired of feeling expired
Ten days ago you'd hold my hand
I don't understand
 

Sunnyside

On the sunny side, where I know you'll be
smiling, waiting for me
On the sunny side, Where I'll see your face
young bright ready for our first embrace
and since My childhood
I've never felt so lost
Since you've left for good
I feel we're still in touch

Cuz' heaven ain't so far when we're sitting in the sun
counting all the cars on the run
But heaven's miles away when I'm alone every day
Your soul's flying free
My soul's held by gravity

On that sunny side, Where we'll meet again
hand in hand when I come home
On that sunny side, Where I know you'll be
smiling, waiting for me
and since My childhood
I've never felt so lost
Since you've left for good
I feel we're still in touch

Cuz' heaven ain't so far when we're sitting in the sun
counting all the cars on the run
But heaven's miles away when I'm alone every day
Your soul's flying free
My soul's held by gravity

I was stupid being human with my selfish thoughts
wanting you for myself
summer took you back my heart in knots
now I know your soul was needed by somebody else
On that sunny side

On the sunny side, where I know you'll be smiling waiting for me
On the sunny side, I'll sing songs of old that I know you love
when I come home
On that sunny side
 

Santa Fe

I packed my bags, on my way
To the ocean, or Santa Fe
I just cant take this, anymore
It's time I leave here
time to hit the road

Well I'm leavin'
Whoa, now
I don't believe in
This town

Familiar places, fade away
Familiar faces, drop in someday
It's time I move on, I can't walk the line
It's time I start new
time to start my life


Well I'm leavin'
Whoa, now
I don't believe in
This town

Free

I'm afloat at Sea
You're somewhere without me
I'm walking on water
You say walking in the sand is harder

Well I'm Free, I'm free I'm free
Swimming in the breeze
I'm Free, I'm free, I'm free
So you can just
Let go of me

I can walk all by myself
You need somebody else
You're trying to take my thunder
But you won't, you won't, pull me under

Cuz I'm Free, I'm free I'm free
Swimming in the breeze
I'm Free, I'm free, I'm free
So you can just
Let go of me

I pondered, what it's like to be with you
I wondered what you would do
I noticed I never needed anyone
or anything
Except for me

Cuz I'm Free, I'm free I'm free
Swimming in the breeze
I'm Free, I'm free, I'm free
So you can just
Let go of me

Earth

I want to sing, about real things
About the trees, the dew the water and land
I wanna dance with my own feet
My body sways but the moves just aren't planned

Well it's hard to feel real, yes it's hard to be true
When inspired to think, oh the things one can do

Show me your Earth
Show me your heart
Let me rebirth so that I can start
Start to relive
Start to release
The music I give for the Birds and the trees

I wanna play with an artist's hands
ones that are mine to spin and create
I want to walk in silence
with nothing but the birds and waves

But it's hard to feel real, yes it's hard to be true
When inspired to think, oh the things one can do

Show me your Earth
Show me your heart
Let me rebirth so that I can start
Start to relive
Start to release
The music I give for the Birds and the trees
 

The Way I Do

I wish you'd take my hand
play with my hair
I wish you'd wait for me
when I'm unaware

I wish you'd lay your head
and think of what could be
I wish you'd smile
when you think of me

The Way I do

I wish you'd take my hand
I wish you'd play with my hair
Whoa, the way I do

I wish you'd yearn for me
when the nights are cold
I wish you'd hope for someone
someone you can hold

The Way I do

 

Barefoot

Left my shoes on your doorstep
Hoping you would remember me
Painted blue on your window
Hoping your wind would capture me

Whoa, Whoa

I unraveled so you would tie them
once I find your door
Painted green on window
Barefoot grass no more

Whoa, Whoa

From the sand to the water
Barefoot onto land
And some morn you will find me
Untied shoes in hand

Whoa, Whoa
