Hey little girl don't stick your head in the oven There's a rainbow coming The wind will cool things down Hey little girl you better stop your crying Open up your eyes Before the quicksand brings you down Hey little girl there's a storm a brew in' The dogs are out They've been sniffing' and circling' around Hey little girl the sun is leaking You better wear your hat Run cover you better run Hey little girl there's a search team coming Hold onto the sides of the well With all your might Hey little girl there's a lifeline falling Down that deep dark hole To fish you out Look up there the moon is rising It's shining and beaming You're going to work it on out Hey little girl I think the guards are changing The season's breaking You're going to work it on out
I don't want to meet you 'cause I don't want any memories of you When you're gone I don't want to have to pick up the pieces and throw it all back together When it's over and done I spent too much time thinking about the things that never amount to Anything at all I spent too much time in my own head fantasizing over What never had any hope at all I walked in the home last night and I tripped fell in the mud And I guess that's right I can't remember what you said 'cause I drank too much and fell in bed And I guess that's right Searching for something to fill the void only to find we're lonelier Than before Silence is the loudest sound it rings louder than any bells around And it won't let me sleep at night They so no man's an island that we're all connected And I guess there's a ring a truth And there's a reason why the desert calls and it's not true that things go there to die They live and they thrive
Marina's Garden - Excerpts from Marina Tsvetaeva's poem "Garden" For an outcast throw a garden down, with no one in no one around Tell me of torment that's enough, a garden lonely as myself That's the garden I want when I grow old, the garden the future world For my old age send it to me, to take my soul and set it free
In The Park 03:01
I'll meet you in the park Tuesday at noon I'll be there waiting with a yellow balloon If it's raining I'll still be there I wouldn't miss you after all this year I'll wear the prettiest dress I own I'll be on the carousel all alone I'll be on the horse painted pink When you see me go by I'll wink It always was good when we were here So I'll give you my heart once a year But I'll take it back at the end of the day Too bad we could only work it this way chorus: I always thought we'd find a way To work through the mud that hit our day And I always thought we'd find a way To walk through the woods and burn the hay Looks like it will always will be this way I don't think that will ever change So let's forget who we are and where we've been Let's just walk through this park again We'll spend the day 'til the sun goes down Sit on the bench and mess around Then you can walk me to the train Next year we'll meet up and do it again
I'm Calling 03:31
Listen to my feet Listen to my heart beat Follow my breath Follow me to my bed It's been such a long time But you know I like you just fine Kiss me like that I'll kiss you back I don't like it when the night falls I try to hide until the dawn calls And I listen as the rain comes down But silence is the loudest sound So come and hold me dear In my heart you're always near Through the static on the line Can you hearing me calling from your side x2 I'm calling x3
I can't keep myself from crying most of the time And I don't think you want to get inside It's dark in here and I don't sleep so well When the night falls so do I But I remember your face your smell your eyes And I think of how I walked away Of how I couldn't cope and now I rue the day So if there's ever a chance to hold you again Give me a call I'll let you in I don't even know what I'm feeling most of the time Living in a dream world and I don't know how to live in real time My heart is peppered with holes and a lot leaks through So if I seem uncaring remember it's not about you 'Cause I don't know how to love the right way How to breathe how to play And I'm sorry for the fights all the pain For a few short moments We made each other feel ok So maybe you'll never want to see me again Much less than wonder about me and how I am But I'd really like to see your smile And feel your arms around me for a little while So if I ever hold you again I'll try to be better this time
Spellbound 02:23
Like a music box sweetly plays a tune Like a spinning top spins colors red and blue Like a jewelry box filled with diamonds like rocks Like the mega ball I'm gonna win it all Like a glass of wine stains my lips Like a salsa beat shakes my hips Like your phone call got me running around Like your magic show got me spellbound Like a glitter ball shines like a star Like your arms feel when I'm ready to fall Like a hot day in the afternoon On such a hot day you got me loving you You're like the best song I ever heard You're like the best dress I ever wore You're like a moon shines like a midnight sun You're like I want to be your only one Like a glass of wine stains my lips Like a salsa beat shakes my hips Like your phone call got me running around Like your magic show got me spellbound
Whisper 04:18
Feel the sun beat on the back of your head Feel the wind blow through the window by your bed Feel the mist of the rain upon your skin Feel the warmth of the night take you in And don't you run away too soon Don't you run away too soon Hear the bells in the distance count the hours Hear the whisper of the voice of your lover Hear the whisper of her hair upon your pillow Hear the whisper of her breath follow her to sleep And don't you run away too soon Don't you run away too soon Feel the wine slide over your tongue Let it last tip the morning brings the sun Feel the fire warm inside your belly Feel my hands take you to heaven And don't you run away too soon Don't you run away too soon
Billy 02:16
billy stood on the corner under the rain waiting for little girls to walk his way and billy liked to think of them that way in the form of angels born to light his way he'd wait and hope to hear one of them say hey billy won't you come and play he waited til it was dark out one was walking alone he sneaked up behind her grabbed her by her pretty pink bow hey billy you can't play with her that way he made her a bed of roses but they only scratched her skin he tried to make her love him but he couldn't win hey billy he liked to think of her that way everyday he fell in love and he made her pay he found himself walking to church just to wash his sins away hey billy you can't play with her that way
Treasure 02:27
Hey you got some funny eyes The shape they're far too wide They wrap way around your head I swear you know when I've been bad Hey you got a liquid mouth It drips just like a Dali house In Figueres where the moon is clean And the streets slip just like serpentine Hey I saw you in my dream Take a burning hot poker to my skin You ran it down my chest past my belly Leaving scars of red like ruby jelly Hey I like the way you cut my hair I like the you move me around Like you've got something to win Give me something that I can believe in Hey you came on real strong And by the way you looked you could do no wrong But there was something funny in the way you stood Should've taken you down when I knew I could Hey you bit your way right through my heart And then you spit it out like a beat you never would miss Come a little closer you can chew on this


Swampy slide guitar and a bluesy, velvety voice singing timeless tunes well written. Inventive, raw, and heartfelt. Another great album from a true original.
