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…

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 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 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….

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

Fiercely intimate and real, these tracks were recorded within days of the songs being written. These five songs would later be recorded in studio; those versions can be heard on the album Echo.
