Track Name: i wandered (i wondered)
I wandered lonely as a crowd
light as a stone
free as a rope
clear as the smoke
I wandered

I wondered if the notes were all used up
would we all have nothing left to play
I wondered if the cards were all turned up
would there be another move to make

and if ace beats king

does love beat lust
does pink beat blue?
does them beat us
does me beat you?
I wondered

I wondered if the words were all used up
would we all have nothing left to say
I wondered if the odds were all raised up
would the horse keep running in the race

and if ace beats king

does love beat lust
does pink beat blue?
does them beat us
does me beat you?
I wondered

I wandered lonely as a crowd
light as a stone
free as a rope
clear as the smoke
I wandered
I wandered
Track Name: free flower
put it in a basket
place it on a wire
make it for lasting
leave it to desire

ask it by an answer
take it past the point
touch it as a dancer
breathe it with a noise

pull your roots up out of the ground
get out of bed, wander around
free your soul from wondering why
go for a walk up in the sky

be a free flower
be a free flower

move it down the river
lay it till the dawn
push it thru the barrier
love it like a son

pull your roots up out of the ground
get out of bed, wander around
free your soul from wondering why
go for a walk up in the sky

be a free flower
be a free flower
be...
Track Name: the stars
I have traveled far
Night has fallen hard
Out beyond the lights of town
I finally stop my car

Overhead I find
A jewel-encrusted sky
Clouds of luminescent wonder
Touched with streaks of light

[chorus]
The stars, the stars
The stars are falling down
The stars, the stars
Burn out without a sound

Heaven grants me rest
I am feeling blessed
Planets pull me, suns shine through me
On their journey west

Through the sky they flow
Some flash, some faintly glow
Never thinking, never knowing
Where their light will go

[repeat chorus]

This celestial calm
Must go on and on

Someday when I fall
Through the darkest night of all
Will I shine or will I smolder
When I hear the call

The stars, the stars
The stars are falling down
The stars, the stars
Burn out without a sound
Track Name: willow tree fall (redux)
Willow tree seed
Willow tree sprout
Willow tree dance and dream
Willow tree breathe
Willow tree shine
Willow tree grow up green

Willow tree sigh
Willow tree weep
Willow tree sweep the grass
Willow tree cry
Willow tree feel
Willow tree grow up fast

Ah...
Will a tree... will a tree fall

Icy wind is blowing
Shadow clouds are growing
Devil dust swirling all over the ground
If a tree falls with no one around
Will a tree make a sound?

Ah...
Will a tree... will a tree fall

Willow tree bend
Willow tree crack
Willow tree break and fall
Willow tree seed
Willow tree sprout
Willow tree grow up tall

Icy wind is blowing
Shadow clouds are growing
Devil dust swirling all over the ground
If a tree falls with no one around
Will a tree make a sound?

Ah...
Will a tree... will a tree fall
Will a tree grow? or fall
Track Name: amethyst jane
Amethyst Jane fell out of bed
A thousand thoughts filled up her head
Then she took a look at the world and smiled

And she was young
And she was happy
And the day was long
And the time went by, in a way, that would say
A better day is gonna come

Amethyst Jane got into the fray
Took a deep breath, and looked at the day
Then she took a turn on a bumpy ride

And she was long
And she was sexy
And the day was long
And the time went by, in a way, that would say
A better day is gonna come

Amethyst Jane got out of the fray
Spun around blind, and had to say
Please don't make me look at myself inside

And she was wrong
And she was angry
And the day was long
And the time went by, in a way, that would say
A better day has gotta come

And she thought
Up or down, it's all the same
See the sunshine and the rain
Come or go, it's all the same
Feel the laughter and the pain
Win or lose, it's all the same

Amethyst Jane got out of bed
A thousand dreams filled up her head
Then she took a look at herself and smiled

And she was strong
And she was happy
And the day was long
And the time went by, in a way, that would say
A better day has finally come

Up or down, it's all the same
See the sunshine and the rain
Come or go, it's all the same
Feel the laughter and the pain
Win or lose, it's all the same
