Prologue 05:19
PROLOGUE I don't know you but I know you I don't want to but I want you Sometimes a smile's just a frown upside down You turn me upside down And if it's longing that makes this art Am I lost from the start 'Cause all these grasping hands don't see the emptiness What can fulfill... hungry heart They say it comes to those who wait, if you keep on And if Saint Peter's at the gate, I'm sure you'll be a chosen one So let me stroke your pretty face and chase all those cares away Yeah, the blinds are pulled down tight; I'll make everything alright And how do you measure the passage of time By cities and highways the one you're loving tonight Put on that smile again, turn up that wistful charm But please don't play with me; I see who you are They say it comes to those who wait, if you keep on And if Saint Peter's at the gate, I'm sure you'll be a chosen one So you can rest your weary head and I'll caress you into sleep And with these whispers in your ear, I'll make all of your dreams so sweet All of your dreams sweet Let the world turn without you tonight... I'll protect you and keep you safe…

All of You 04:39
All of You I cannot think about you without thinking of you lying in my bed Could not strike the image of your naked body out of my head Want you near me; what is it about you feels so different Press against me; push me down, hold me down, I've no defence Where you're concerned all the rules will need to be broken Just this once, not going to look before leaping my heart flung wide open Can't afford to fall in so blindly, this frail girl she's still on the mend Please be gentle except when she begs you to take her again I am the fire that's burning and you are the breath that is fanning this flame of desire Hold me closer; this keeping your distance is keeping this wanting alive Someone save me from my own weakness, these needs that I cannot deny I'm a prisoner, this body my keeper, this aching to have you inside I wanted to take all of you… Please, take me or leave me do something to free me, I can't bear much more of this I have waited days upon weeks that have passed since the night we first kissed I recall the way that you smelled and your tongue in my mouth Oh so wet from your lips on my neck I might perish without I wanted to take all of you… I'm a puppet on a string

NEVER BEHOLDEN I romance your image in your absence I make it up as I go along Why go outside when the weather's cold and dreary I've got these thoughts to keep me warm Found it's best to fly your flag at half mast These winds could turn upon a dime Won't last forever but it's never over Always a matter of time, time, time Won't try to push you from that high ground Looks to me you feel at home Another night drinkin' until sunrise Is another night I spend… No, a steed like you is never broken Though you might let me think you're mine Can't be corralled, never beholden He's just along for the ride, ride, ride So you can go ahead and feed on this body Play your games with this precious mind Ain't nothin' else on the table 'Cause this heart, this heart is…… Pero, el fuego tuyo cuanto me enciende Tu pasión no tiene igual Cuando tocas como quien respira Me lleva a lo primordial Entonces puedes consumirme físicamente Juega tus juegos con mi preciosa mente Veras que hay algo ausente Porque mi corazón…. no se vende So you can burn my lips with searing kisses Sting my eyes with that beguiling smile There ain't nothin' else for the takin' 'Cause this heart, this heart Go ahead and feed on this body You can play your games with this precious mind Ain't nothin' else for sale here 'cause this heart, this heart…… is…. mine

Moving Target When the fever broke I saw you saw you standin' there had you been there all along? Said I'd been gone for days, just ramblin' at times not makin' sense things I should not have said And you looked like you'd seen a ghost but you were lookin' right at me And if truth is a moving target looks different from all sides where's the ground I can put my feet on to keep it in my sights? All the townsfolk with their whisperin' these voices in my head tellin' me lies again Said you'd be headin' south for winter maybe be gone for good like I knew you would Just because it was my voice don't mean i had a choice And if truth is a moving target looks different from all sides where's the ground I can put my feet on to keep it in my sights? And as you turned around to go all I wanted you to know loved you better than myself maybe that's where I failed And if truth is a moving target looks different from all sides where's the ground i can put my feet on to keep it in my sights? And if truth is a moving target looks different from all sides gimme ground I can put my feet on to keep it in my sights

Pinprick 04:59
Pinprick Just a little pinprick and freedom for awhile Hurts only for a minute then it's all rolling waves and endless sky In the middle of the night she's your best friend The stars all look so bright 'til daybreak comes and they're gone again Just a little secret avoids a fight It doesn't take a genius to know what's right Puttin' on your best dress the one he liked so well Try not to remember the way he looked at you the way you felt Just a little pinprick and freedom for awhile Hurts only for a minute then it's all rolling waves and endless sky Turn a trick or two just for old times' sake Doorman says 'I know you, can't recall your name but I'd never forget that pretty face' And she wraps you in her lovin' arms and takes you nowhere And there's nothin' more you want than to stay there Just a little pinprick and freedom for awhile It doesn't take a genius to know what's right In the middle of the night she's your best friend She's your only friend The stars all look so bright 'til daybreak comes and they're gone again

Fortress 04:35
FORTRESS Out out damn spot Why can I not Forget my lot And start again Please look at me Why can't you see I'm what you need 'Cause we are both broken Innocence met circumstance Can't reclaim what you once had Were we not born holy Penance 'til the end of time What can I do to make you mine What kind of heart longs to be lonely And all that I wanted is yours to give But you hold it so tightly clenched in your fist Did I make it too easy; failed to play it right Guess nothing seems worthy without a fight Condemnation, punishment Trespasses we don't dare admit Just say your Hail Marys But church and state can't keep you safe Late at night there's no escape Some wounds we carry The fight was fixed, the game was rigged I placed another losing bid Are some of us just tragic Vengeance for the things they've done Does the tallest fortress mean you've won Is this really what you wanted We've all got our demons but we're more than this The strongest among us knows his weaknesses You think you're Gibraltar but i've seen your skin Won't you open the window and let me in I thought your strength could keep me safe But it's got your heart locked to that ball and chain Out out damn spot Why can I not Forget my lot And start again

Was My Heart 06:03
WAS MY HEART It was my heart In its weakness Dragged me down To the deep end There I found you Ocean floor Wreckage all scattered around you A ship and its captain, their glory no more When will we see that all we've got is the breath in our lungs and this fine day we've got this fine day I suspect You're not telling the whole truth But it's not just me being deceived It's ourselves we lie to Late at night In the dark of my bedroom Touchin' myself I imagine it's you touchin' me Like I've always wanted you to Is it presumptuous or just plain crazy believin' that somewhere inside you want me do you want me Oh this man of such gravitas Draggin' a heart that's so heavy how else could it be So full up with regret Oh this girl who just wants to hold him Dispense an elixir to free him to see her as she is A tender and sweet lonely lass You can't reclaim innocence it's just what's left when we let go the past why can't we let go? It's all dead and gone It's all dead and gone Wanted to fall, feel your arms catch me Wanted to fall, feel your arms around me Wanted to fall into your arms Wanted to fall… wanted to fall…

Naive 05:11
NAIVE Thought you could want without need always so sweetly naive You made her now you have to love her Black holes both drawn to each other oh fill me up Stay under the covers stay with me tonight Reckless and naked oh shake that heart off your sleeve Always so careless where you bleed Little girl on her own wonders why she's all alone She's a big girl now and she can take care of herself I don't need to I just wanted to I don't need you but i wanted you Who said big boys shouldn't cry and did you think to ask him why Don't big boys have hearts too If tenderness is weakness then I'm weaker than i've ever been with you I'll hold your dreams for you if you want me to I believe in you is that what frightens you The night we touched your lips on mine You said it wasn't me it was the wine If that heart was made of coal the weight it bears would change it You'd be shining from the inside I don't need you But I wanted you I believe in you is that what frightens you

Autumn Song 06:32
AUTUMN SONG When you look at me I can feel your heart When you say my name mine skips a beat As the Fall winds breathe will this want remain Or will it fade away like the browning leaves like the browning... You ask if I can sing Next to you can I do anything Make you want to stay Take this want away Like the night the great waves washed their homes away No rescue squad could save that day No one to save the day Taken all but these, the clothes on my back Truth comes crashing down, we are powerless we are powerless You ask if I can sing Next to you can I do anything Make you want to stay Take this want away And they wept as they grasped at the pieces Swept one by one out to sea All I have, this heart that feels All I have, this next breath I breathe And your hands around my waist Your ear pressed to my chest Now that you can hear me Disappear me Your arms around my waist Your ear pressed to my chest Now that you can hear me Disappear me….
10.
THE PACKAGE THEY GAVE All my wants like a package they gave the day I was born seems they're here to stay All my dreams from where I'd tucked them away flooded back to the fore the day that you came I'm fighting the urge to throw it all down and fall at your feet They say 'Life ain't a fairytale girl' and I say, 'Well, why can't it be?' yeah, why can't it be She wakes up at dawn puts the coffee pot on lifts the boy from the bed into the first rays of sun His arms 'round her neck with one eye open to see sleepy smile on his face there's nowhere else she would be I'm fighting the urge to throw it all down and fall at your feet They say 'Life ain't a fairytale girl' and I say, 'Well, why can't it be?' why can't it be The soft skin of your cheek under brush of my lips The arch of my back into your fingertips I catch my breath when I remember your kiss Don't want no one else 'cause it won't feel like this I'm fighting the urge to throw it all down and fall at your feet They say 'Life ain't a fairytale girl' and I say, 'Well, why can't it be?' I've tried to explain but you're seeing red when I'm saying green There's no misunderstanding when we're in bed, your arms around me I'm fighting the urge to throw it all down and fall at your feet They say 'Life ain't a fairytale," I heard it, I'm asking you, why can't it be? Isn't life what we make it and learning to love what sets us free? So I'm gonna keep asking, I'm gonna keep asking

about

Co-produced by John Raham (Frazey Ford, The Belle Game) and Angela Inglis, and recorded with musicians borrowed from Juno Award-winning bands Dan Mangan and the Be Good Tanyas. Ten tracks are presented in the order in which they were written, following an emotional trajectory familiar to anyone who's recognized that meaning exists only insofar as we create it and that seeing this is the beginning of true freedom.
