SONG FOR TERRY

I remember the call on the hot summer day
Your mama she choked on the phone
she said Terry can't play
Your daddy said how dare you call, you little demon
or didn't you know, or is this a cruel joke
but how could I've known
You're supposed to be here
Do you believe
that I wouldn't leave you child
cause sooner or later
everyone falls on their knees
I drop the phone, I go out in the sun
come on out and ask me if I'm all right
I'll put my best smile on
I'm holding back my tears
you taught me strength from above
without all your fears you had
the courage to love me
Do you believe
that I wouldn't leave you child
cause sooner or later
everyone falls on their knees
I reach for you
I wonder if your parents still do
Do you believe
that I wouldn't leave you child
cause sooner or later
she said, sooner or later
everyone falls on their knees
Did you loose your chance
to grow old
or maybe you're the lucky one

THE TREES ARE MELTING

I was looking for a way out
Running from one more bout, I put my boxing gloves on
Could I buy some more time
I'd like to get what's mine, another compromise is done
Were not willing for a sacrifice, kiss and sell a lie
When will truth arrive?
While the trees are melting
We it all together
The bombs keep ticking
While we think about the weather
The trees are melting while I'm chasing the demons
coming out of you, out of me, crawling on my skin
How did I get here again?
I was reading in the paper they shot another child, so I put my dark glasses down
Oh 'cause we cannot filter out the light, shine it through this night
No more wasting time

While the trees are melting
I keep it all together
The bombs keep ticking
While we bitch about the weather
The trees are melting while I'm chasing the demons
The trees are melting while I'm fighting the demons
coming out of you, out of me,
Oh don't you know that
We feel helpless for an answer
So, we go out while the sign counts babies
Yeah, we go out for burgers, They cut down forests to
raise them on
we eat until, we forget what's wrong, Oh what's wrong
Yeah, we forget, Oh what's wrong, the trees are melting

WE KNOW

In a matter of time
You could be set free
We could enjoy the love
inside of Thee
Reach for a touch
we've all craved
you could hide with the light
where I feel safe
I hope
ooh the magical moment
I believe in the promise
I raise a candle, and I face the wind
Always been with me
and I wish you had come
to see the sands
I'd hear my sister's voice
caress the land
I often wonder if you're still near
you could show me your presence,
and I'd know you care
I hope, and we hope
ooh the magical moment
I believe in the promise
I take your hand and I face the wind
raise a candle and I face the wind
Always been with me
If I reached into my heart again,
would I find you there?

THOUGHT I HEARD THE RAIN

This was the last time, I could feel it
Heard your feet crossing the Kitchen floor
The subtle ping, closing the back door
All night I tried to fight it
Running to my favorite hiding place
I feel you near, but I can't see your face
Thought I heard the rain
It's these fears starting to call
Thought I heard the rain
You and me, stuck in the tide of it all
I feel your body move into mine
is it just a dream, stealing the night from me
Is it just a dream, or a memory
These memories...
Thought I heard the rain
It's these fears starting to call
Thought I heard the rain
You and me, stuck in the tide of it
In the name of love you'll always try to take me down
So don't you tell me a lie
'cause I know that mama never ever hears a sound
so we don't need to whisper
Thought I heard the rain
It's these fears starting to call
Thought I heard the rain
You and me, stuck in the tide of it
This was the last time, or I thought it'd be
but I still feel your feet across my floor
the sinking feeling, when you come back for more

MAN ON MY RADIO

There's a man on my radio he's saying bad things
there's a man on my radio talking so loud I can't think
if I could just find the switch to turn it off
but this plug doesn't seem to leave the wall
Is there something that sounds like silence
is there something that feels like a piece of my mind
peace of mind
There's a voice in this head It's
telling me I shouldn't speak
so I try not to listen, but the voices are so deep
and if I could just have one minute to myself
I could see who I am, see who I am
Is there something that sounds like silence
Is there something that feels like a piece of my mind
cause I try and try just to find it
so that I can hear this little voice inside
well I hate to know you're still hanging around
cause I turned you on, but I want you down
but part of me finds solace in the sound
What would I do if I didn't keep me bound
Didn't keep me bound, I didn't keep me bound
There's a man on my radio
There's a man on my radio
and if I could just turn him off again
but there's a man on my radio

GIRL NAMED KATE

Stop...he said stop
Don't do anything you'll regret later
Listen, won't you listen?
Can't you hear me calling across this ocean?
He said I'd be his wife
He said we'd be happy for life
but I'd have to kill the girl named Kate
for his love, erase the mistake
Don't bargain with me
I can't decide
Well I've never been good at making decisions
Call Mom, she says I'm not ready
She says, "My God my baby just can't have one too"
He said I'd be his wife
He said we'd be happy for life
but I'd have to kill the girl named Kate
for his love, erase the mistake
Don't bargain...with her
Smile...He says, cause I love your smile
Write happy songs darling,
One for me

THE TIME IS NOW

I never wear the flower dress
I can feel your spirit on it
Picking the daisies from my heart
this flower almost dies
Don't wait for the stars to fade
don't wait for the moon to call
The time is now for the seed to grow
The time is now
When the bird flew my spark grew
only to return to sorrow
Sparrow's song could you save me, save me
don't let him hide, I cry
Don't wait for the stars to fade
don't wait for the moon to call
The time is now for the seed to grow
The time is now
I water the garden with my tears
Girl don't forget those years
they taught you how to laugh and smile
then he said wait a while
I Can't kiss you goodnight
Don't wait for the stars to fade
don't wait for the moon to call
The time is now for the seed to grow
The time is now
I never wear the flower dress
I can feel your fingers on me
this flower will survive
