Track Name: May Love
Keep her in the warmest place
Keep her out of the dark
Hold her till she's closed her eyes
Till she's got another start

(Don't you wanna) See the fear thats in her eyes grow into wanderlust
(Won't you be the) One who tells her its alright she's got someone to trust

Oh dance in the daylight oh dance at the start
Don't wait till the moment is past in the dark
Just give me a reason for love in my heart
And wherever you go oh may love carry you far
(Oh these are the best times)

Bring her to a better place
Hold her hand just right
I know you need to be the one who tells her to go and try

(Don't you wanna) See the fear thats in her eyes grow into wanderlust
(Won't you be the) One who tells her its alright she's got someone to trust
Track Name: Minor Bird
I have wished a bird would fly away
And not sing by my house all day
I have clapped my hands at him from the door
When it seemed I couldn't bear it anymore.

The fault must have partly been in me.
The bird was not to blame for his key.
And of course there must be something wrong
In wanting to silence his song.

Fly away little bird fly far
Take your tune away from this empty heart
Take your songs, take them far from me
Leave me as my truth lies in the dark
Track Name: Trails
Little did I know that
wherever I go what
whatever I've had
I've been trailing a mountain

All the evergreen
Well it couldn't cover me
The bitter cold is here
And the wind it follows me

Kettle did you warm up
All the bitter cold hearts
My thoughts go too fast
Along the pines oh sounding

The nearest shore well it's miles and miles away
From nearly dawn to dusk
I feel the wind
It's here to stay

Could I start to tell you oh how everything I've seen
Down the moonlit path these ashes oh they trail behind me
We die for truth, we die for love it's all the same
I can't keep up with lightning but these words they will remain

And all the rivers in the world can't run from me
Track Name: Trinket
Oh, the sun beamed down on our promising love
Oh, the silly little riverbed gave way
Oh, the loons called out and the sea came by
She waved, "hello" but we had to say, "goodbye"

But we said, "goodbye"
Oh we said, "goodbye"

I've moved many times and threw tiny stones
The ancient grains fed us, they fed my bones
Lead me not astray oh the nightingale
Hear my cry, hear my call

(Oh please hear)
My tale
It will reveal my fate
and we said goodbye
we said goodbye

Will you remember, is this lost forever
What did you find, what did you bury
Tiny feathers, trinkets, and shiny rocks we threw
Is there a body in the ground?
Track Name: River
Thought I saw you there across the river
It made me shiver
The thought of seeing you
So close so true

Gave my garden water just a tither
But rain fell like slivers
Oh how it all came down
Washed me in and out

Thought I'd sing me just a little song of hope
Thought I'd wander near the gate I loved you so
This is how I spend my time all just for you
Hear my call and maybe I'll just sing you home

Sing you home
Sing you home
Sing you home

Thought I saw you there across the river
It made me shiver
The thought of seeing you
So close so true

Walked into my home alone I never
Ever feel better
Tea cup at the dawn
Always makes me calm

Maybe I'll just sing you home
Track Name: The Years
Every millionth person may be someone like you
I would never look to find out if that is true
You grin at everything I say,
Close your eyes or look away

Keep on telling me somehow
Our best days are coming now
Simple signs I'm reading on
Tell me lately how we've won

But can you feel the way I do
When all is said and bridges burned
Will you climb the gate over ivy and dew
Soft and slow without a sound
When all is said and done for now
The cornerstone has stayed
Since I fell for you

I will always be the one
To be better for you
Simple signs I'm reading on
Tell me lately how we've won

But can you feel the way I do
When all is said and bridges burned
Will you climb the gate over ivy and dew
Soft and slow without a sound
When all is said and done for now
The cornerstone has stayed
Since I fell for you
Track Name: Summer Solstice
I could not be more responsible
For all the forester brings me home
All of these woods I've watched over
I carry them on alone

And I could try to forget all the stories I've known
But why couldn't I pass on them to the foresters' own
Pass them on to the foresters' own
