Tracklist

Breathe Your Name

length: 3:57
producer: Matt Slocum and Paul Fox
orchestrator: Paul Fox
percussion & drums (drum set): Dale Baker

It's everyday I'm in this place
I feel this way, I feel the same.
It's everyday I'm in this place
I feel this way, I feel the same.
Is it all inside my head?
Is it all inside my head?

I view the list and take my pick,
I'll view my fate and make the choice,
'Cause it's nobody else's but mine.

But You're in my heart, I can feel your beat.
And You move my mind from behind the wheel
When I lose control,
I can only breathe Your name.
I can only breathe Your name.

So many days within this race,
I need the truth, I need some grace.
I need the path to find my place,
I need some truth, I need some grace.
The part of You that's part of me
Will never die, will never leave.
And it's nobody else's but mine.

You are in my heart, I can feel your beat.
And You move my mind from behind the wheel.
When I lose control,
I can only breathe your name,
I can only breathe your name.

You view the list and take your pick,
You view my fate and make the choice,
'Cause I'm nobody else's but Yours.

And You're in my heart, I can feel your beat,
And You move my mind from behind the wheel.
When I lose control,
I can only breathe Your name.
'Cause you're in my heart, I can feel Your beat,
And you move my mind from behind the wheel.
When I lose control,
I can only breathe your name [Repeat: x4]

Tonight it's time
Choose a direction
If you fail
You can make a correction
Somewhere now
Make life faster
Make your mind
Up for once this time

It's hard
To know
Where I
Supposed to go

It's hard
So hard to know
To know
Where I'm supposed to go
Tonight
Tonight

Tonight it's time
Choose a direction
If you fail
You can make a correction
Somewhere now
Make life faster
Make your mine
And for once this time

It's like
To know
Where I
Supposed to go

It's hard
So hard to know
To know
Where I'm supposed to go
Tonight
Tonight

Tonight I'm going let it go
And try to let it be
Because I know you see
That it's hard
To know
Where I supposed to go
But there is
A way
And tomorrow is a brand new day
And it's hard
So hard to know
Where I supposed to be
But there is a way
And tomorrow is a brand new day
Tonight
Tonight

Down and Out of Time

length: 3:29
producer: Paul Fox and Matt Slocum
percussion: Rob Mitchell
drums (drum set): Rob Mitchell
I dreamt of something last night in my sleep
I saw you sitting in a room without me
You were smiling
And you had a tattoo of me,
In a room without you

[Chorus]
I aim my cannon at you ready or not
You're gonna feel my pain, like it or not
You've got your debts to pay
And you are one of mine
You're down and out of time

Then, there is something I wanted to say
A simple rhythm I forgot how to play
I want to tell you
That I've called off the dogs
Your mystery is not worth being solved

[Chorus: x2]

I want to tell you that I've called off the dogs
Your mystery is not worth being solved

composer: Neil Finn
lyricist: Neil Finn
There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're traveling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
Don't ever let them win

Waiting on the Sun

length: 2:55
producer: Paul Fox and Matt Slocum
percussion: Rob Mitchell
drums (drum set): Rob Mitchell
I'm going nowhere and I'm going to take my time
All the questions in the world
I can leave in my mind
I'm waiting on the sunshine, the sunshine

I'm waiting for answers
I'm waiting to figure it out
I took all my chances
I slipped through my town

[Chorus]
I'm going nowhere and I'm going to take my time
All the questions in the world
I can leave in my mind
I'm waiting on the sunshine, the sunshine,
The sunshine

Well it seems that my weakness
Is sometimes my only strength
And in my incompleteness you get your way

[Chorus]

I'll be around and I will find my way back down
Yeah I've seen the sound of the sun

I'm going nowhere and I'm going to take my time
All the questions in the world
I can leave in my mind
I'm waiting on the sunshine, the sunshine,
The sunshine, the sunshine

You are still burning
The flame that is turning
My smoldering ash into a bird
So stay close, my brother
I couldn't stand the loss
You are the bridge of action
I need you to help me cross
I need you to help me

[Chorus]
So when you break
My arms I'll take hold of you
I know your heart's
A hand that takes hold of me

My hand that is breaking
Is the hand that is making
All the dead things in me grow
A gift of a holy loss
This burning at the dross

[Chorus]

Why do you set out to break the one thing
The one thing that I have to give
It's hard to believe that I could
That I should begin again
But I know your heart is a hand

So when I break
Your arms you'll take hold of me
You know my heart's
A hand that takes hold of you
So when you break
My arms I'll take hold of you
I know your heart's
A hand that takes hold of me
So when you break
My arms I'll take hold of you
I know your heart's
A hand that takes hold of me

Melody of You

cello: John Catchings and Carole Rabinowitz
strings arranger: Kristin Wilkinson
drums (drum set) & percussion: Dale Baker
you're a painting with symbols deep, symphony
soft as it shifts from dark beneath
a poem that flows, caressing my skin
in all of these things you reside and I
want you flow from the pen, bow and brush
with paper and string, and canvas tight
with ink in the air, to dust your light?
from morning to the black of night

[Chorus]
this is my call I belong to You
this is my call to sing the melodies of You
this is my call I can do nothing else
I can do nothing else

you're the scent of an unfound bloom
a simple tune
I only write variations to sooth the mood
a drink that will knock me down to the floor
a key that will unlock the door
where I hear a voice sing familiar themes
then beckons me weave notes in between
a tap and a string, a bow and a glass
you pour me till the day has passed....

[Chorus]

Paralyzed

length: 3:55
producer: Paul Fox and Matt Slocum
I look out to the fields
Where blood is shed upon the ground
I breathe in, breathe out
Change the channel, (mute) the sound
I take a match, a cigarette, and a walk to clear my head
Stomach seething at the thought of all those (human beings dead)

I breathe in, breathe out
I'm going to an interview
About a song, three minutes long
That will mean nothing to you
Especially when your dearest friend
Was sent to cover Kosovo
His last assignment brought a bullet
And now he's gone, he's gone

Feels like I'm (fiddling) while Rome is burning down
Should I put my (fiddle) down and rise up from the ground
God give me strength to pray that You will set things right
'cause I'm paralyzed, I'm paralyzed

There was a (Christian) in the office
Sent to tell the wife (the news)
Fell in shock, the baby kicked, shed a tear inside the womb
I breathe in, breathe out
Soak the ground up with my eyes
I try to say a healing word
But my tongue is paralyzed

Feels like I'm (fiddling) while Rome is burning down
Should I put my (fiddle) down and rise up from the ground
God give me strength to pray that You will set things right
'cause I'm paralyzed, I'm paralyzed

I’ve Been Waiting

length: 4:20
producer: Paul Fox and Matt Slocum
percussion & drums (drum set): Dale Baker
synthesizer: Paul Fox
Oh I'm waiting by a phone
For the blessed ring
Like a holy grail
For a fisher king
Time is ticking down
Like a metronome
Rhythm for my brain
And its ceaseless scares
I never seem to play them to the beat I hear
Though my heart beat is a beat
That beats so near

So we had a talk last night
About the heavy blow that you dealt in fight
Your back against the wall
It was a puzzle piece
Important to the whole that I may not find
You placed within the hole
I never seem to put them in the gaps I see
Like a puzzle where the pieces lost you and me

So I'm changing who I am
'cause what I am's not good
And I know you love me now
But I don't see why you should
And I don't see why you should
No I don't see why you should

So I drift into the end like a moth to light
Down the boulevard to a coffee shop
In the land of song
In the land of wait
Beat is bearing down on this lonely town
I never seem to write them down as good as you
Like I some where lost the keys that let me in

So I'm changing who I am
'cause what I am's not good
And I know you love me now
But I don't see why you should
So I'm changing who I am
'cause what I am's not good
And I know you love me now
Though I don't see why you should
And I don't see why you should
No I don't see why you should

Eyes Wide Open

length: 3:29
producer: Paul Fox and Matt Slocum
percussion & drums (drum set): Dale Baker
Eyes wide open all the time
Just like a drug store in the city
Where she walks the streets at night
Time keeps ticking like the ocean through a siv
Ever on ever forward in a march

Hallelujah
And she's one for the money
To for the show time to go
Back to life back to dreams
Without tears
She's saving what she killed
She built herself a room
To spin around her womb

She's saying good bye bye
To the world now
She's saying good bye bye bye
To the world now

Life is heavy of
Mistakes have come to call her
Always close and dear never far behind
Floating just above the surface
Of their waves their nightmares wait
But come again when she wakes

Hallelujah
And she's one for the money
To for the show time to go
Back to life back to dreams
Without fears
She's saving what she killed
She built herself a room
To spin around her womb

She's saying good bye bye bye
To the world now
She's saying good bye bye bye
To the world now
She's saying good bye bye
To the world now
She's saying good bye bye bye
To the world now
She's saying good bye bye
To the world now
She's saying good bye bye bye
To the world now

Eyes wide open all the time
Just like a drug store in the city
Where she walks the streets at night

concertmaster: Bruce Dukov
percussion & drums (drum set): Dale Baker
cello: Larry Corbett
I'm like Thomas doubting
Fingers routing the scars
Of Your wrists and side
Touching flesh will make my mind believe

But I want to be like David
Throw his clothes to the wind
To dance a jig, in my skin
And be re-made by your cleansing again

[Chorus]
I give You myself
It's all that I have
Broken and frail
I'm clay in Your hands
And I'm spinning unconcealed
Dizzy on this wheel
For You my Love

I'm like Peter crying
Crowing burning my ears
Still You come near
You take my hand
And place it upon an eternal chance

Tension Is a Passing Note

viola: Monisa Angell and Kristin Wilkinson
cello: John Catchings and Anthony LaMarchina
strings arranger: Kristin Wilkinson
drums (drum set) & percussion: Dale Baker
Do I murder when I forget you from afar?
Too drunk on the poison of endless roads
And the countless smoky bars

[Chorus: x2]
But tension is to be loved
When it is like a passing note
To a beautiful, beautiful chord
Do I murder us, putting pavement in my veins
Shooting it in, special heroin
For the seeking and displaced?

A Million Parachutes

length: 6:20
producer: Paul Fox and Matt Slocum
percussion: Rob Mitchell
drums (drum set): Rob Mitchell
Like a million parachutes
The snow's coming down
I'll lock up the front door
And turn the lights down
In the glow of the street lights
I see them descend
Like a million parachutes
Small men on a mission

[Chorus]
I miss the warmth
And I miss the sun
I miss the ocean
I miss everyone
And I miss the bridges
That span across the bay
Tonight, it seems like ages ago

Like a million parachutes
The snow still falls
The dogs are asleep now
There's no one to call
I'll put on some records
And wait for the light
Under those million parachutes
Now a blanket of white

[Chorus: x2]
