Track Name: Sweet Divide (Demo 2017)
Sweet Divide

a feather drawn upon her feet
a ballet on the bedroom sheet
now you go spread your wings on the other side
of the sweet divide. oh the sweet divide.

hold me down, lift me up, we could never ever corrupt
this place, last chase, the ending of the innocent age
white light, last rites, a poly-anna porcelain face
it was a vision of amazing grace
that we can only hear from way up here
on the sweet divide. on the sweet divide

La Boheme, Cabaret
meet me at the opera house
mon cheri, my Monet
was a diva with a dirty mouth
3rd row, 1st show
when Father John was squeezing your hands
like he was feeding on your medicine cans
now he slew all the girls but held to your eyes
oh my sweet remind. oh my sweet remind.

no one knows their names tonight
we lost em’ in a Misty light
but we found a truth, that we’ll never lose
and we will never be the same
so we became, holy names
that were written in the 7th flame
sing a serenade for my Ammaji
she’s got a feather drawn upon her feet
she’s a ballet on the bedroom sheet
now you go spread your wings on the other side
of the sweet divide. oh the sweet divide.
Track Name: Driving You Home (Demo 2007)
When I was blind in that bellied womb it felt like
trying to walk across a crowded room
to be with you babe.

Sun in your eyes made some of them lies
worth believing any allibis.
Still want you in me babe.

Time’s a cure, only time will tell.
I’m just waitin round by your wishing well,
till’ you get with me babe.

Oh won’t you let me drive you home.
This little town finds us anywhere we go.
Oh won’t you let me drive you home.
It’s on the way, swear nobody has to know.

When all, is done, and all I ever wanted was.
When all, is done, and all I ever wanted was,
You!

Don’t be surprised by the look in these eyes.
My lovin’ ain’t cause’ I’m a lonely guy,
and it ain’t the whiskey babe.

Time’s a cure, only time will tell.
I’m just waitin round by your wishing well,
till’ you get with me babe.

Oh won’t you let me drive you home.
This little town finds us anywhere we go.
Oh won’t you let me drive you home.
It’s on the way, swear nobody has to know.

When all, is done, and all I ever wanted was.
When all, is done, and all I ever wanted was,
You!
Track Name: The Right Key (Demo 2013)
There's a weeping in the halls
oh we're headed out
down past it all.

A fleeting in you're heart.
Whoa oh, down past it all.

If I opened up a door to your room,
with the right key.

Or broken down a wall to your room.
Would you invite me?
Would you invite me?

Heavy but won't cave in.
Break into this heart.
How they'd love to.
Oh they'd love you.
Heavy but won't cave in.
Track Name: Picture Show (iPhone Demo 2012)
Oh I can feel them now.
All the hands we hold.
In all our moving picture shows.
The ones we remember.

They're like a secret now.
In all our favorite songs.
It feels like we wait too long.
Before we surrender.

When our whole life feels so loud, misplaced.
In dreams we fear of falling down, from high places.
Oh I'll be here when you come down.
Yeah I'll be here when you come around.
Track Name: Heartbreaker (iPhone Demo 2012)
Born to please like a fiery wave,
may only devil's dare complain.
You can bend your knees and fire away,
but she's never going to stay.

All in flames, she'll burn you up for hours,
calls your name, and turns you up inside.
Your remains, she buries in the garden.
All the same, she never told a lie.

Uh-oh, Uh-oh.
With a smile on her faces.
Uh-oh, Uh-oh.
We all know those places.
Uh-oh, you better know, someplace to hide.
Where she'll never go,
Where she'll never go,
but please let her know.

You're make-believin' she needs a man,
but she don't give a good God damn,
Cause' the only angel walking in Hell,
would remember why they fell.

Just lay down she says,
and rest your head.
Come lay down she says,
and I'll make everything right.

All in flames, she'll burn you up for hours,
calls your name, and turns you up inside.
Your remains, she buries in the garden.
All the same, she never told a lie.

Uh-oh, Uh-oh.
With a smile on her faces.
Uh-oh, Uh-oh.
We all know those places.
Uh-oh, you better know, someplace to hide.
Where she'll never go,
Where she'll never go,
but please let her know.

Just lay down she says,
and rest your head.
Come lay down she says,
and I'll make everything right.
Track Name: That Lovers Song
With the turn of my head,
all the lights turned red,
oh not this again.

With the sweetest of movements,
with no need for improvements,
you gave me all away.

Stealing scenes,
off of movie screens.
Hollywood lost a star.

In the palm of your hand,
there’s a marching band,
playing that lovers song.

I… could get used to that.
Lay down a little while,
And sink into the sand.

I… I could fall for that.
So slow down and realize,
that my heart is in your hands.
Track Name: All In Good Time (Demo 2007)
All in good time.
The longing makes diamonds for angels,
who wait in that line.

Send up your prayers,
cause' the longer we stare in the fire,
the more goes unsaid.
Now we’re both turnin’ red.

While we burn, burn, burn.
Oh how we long to be
heard, heard, her's.

There’s a ghost in us both,
we’re too ‘fraid to show so we hide ‘em.
Well let’s drive them home.

There’s a light up ahead,
and no coins or cards can divine it.
So let’s do what’s right,
and get through tonight.

While we burn, burn, burn.
Oh how we long to be heard, heard, her's.
Into the fi-re burn, burn, burn.
Oh how we long to be heard, heard, her's.
Into the fire...
Track Name: The Waltz (iPhone Demo 2012)
don't speak, don't speak, don't say a word
don't speak, don't speak, don't say a word
don't speak, don't speak, don't say a word

oh no, i think its alive, didn't anybody notice
push it aside, push it anyway you want to
but just wait a little while
slowly you move me
nothing fills the hole for anyone
look to the light
it may be the sun
it may be the sun
it may be the sun
it may be the sun
it may be the sun
but just wait a little while

Oh...

dont speak, dont speak, dont say a word
dont speak, dont speak, dont say a word
dont speak, dont speak, dont say a word
Track Name: Starry Night
If I could, save a light for the little one.
Oh baby close your eyes, and soon we'll be home.

If I could, save a light for the little one.
Oh baby hold you tight, and wonder no more.

I could lay my mine, leave no trace
to oh my hallowed hiding place, no more.
You'd follow me home.

If I fall I won't fear, you call my name.
If I fall I won't fear, you come my way.
You come my,
You come my,
You come my way.
Become mine.
Track Name: Another Life
I've not made up my mind about this life.
A vague dreamy affair.
Dimly lit and unclear.

A free spirit appeared from another time.
Transfixed me.
An aurora borealis of the mind.
An aurora borealis of the mind.

Lost in space we fall through time.
I'll meet you in another life.
Fall through time.
I'll meet you in another life.
I'll meet you in another life.

Because I've not made up my mind about this life.
I've not made up my mind this time.

Oh meet me in another life.
Oh meet me in another life.
Oh meet me in another life.
Oh meet me in another life.
