- Lyrics - Just past the river 'Neath those syc'more trees You'll find me waitin' for ya Suckin' on a tangerine And I'm left wonderin' Are you still comin' for me? Or should I pack my things and go? Give up on my hopes and dreams I never thought that I could be this lonely It's a torture, babe, that you're not with me Are you comin' for me? Are you comin' darlin'? What's the hold up, truly I ain't foolin' No no no no Are you you comin' for me? Are you comin' darlin'? Are you you comin' for me? Are you comin' darlin'? 'Cause I'm not certain anymore Can't say I was ever sure We were witches, we were wishing, we were watching With wilder wonders we weave Then you left me, left me by my lonesome Wondering why you had to leave Left me by my lonesome Wondering why you had to leave This story is not over she said And this you better believe 'Cause I'm prayin' honey that someday You'll find me 'neath those sycamore trees

Send To You 04:33
- Lyrics - Uncertain words and time to ponder Set my mind to wander Which brings my heart to worry And as I scurry and hurry through what's unknown and unseen I feel a call from above And all I can say is I send to you my love Years have past since we were well acquainted Memories once vivid now are faded And despite all that's changed She still remains contained in my heart And it seems for now we shall remain apart So all I can say is I send to you my love _

Wandering 02:53
- Lyrics - I ventured out on the trail I lost my way I wandered aimless to no avail And it's no wonder Why I'm shook by the thunder My mind transfixed on all the things unknown My habits lead me astray Where ought I go? I cannot help but be this way And it's no wonder Why I falter and blunder My eyes transfixed all too far away The truth is slipping from my mind The truth I ever yearn to find Disappearing in the dead of night Circles pull me slowly down But that's only half the round Soon I'll rise and I will see the light The path continues to unwind I gaze above The stars and patterns mesmerize And it's no blunder When I'm full of wonder My heart transfixed on all the things of love

- Lyrics - As a poison ran around my veins and my tongue I press my ear to the forest floor "Listen closely," she said, "Listen close now" You will hear the cries and screams from long ago Hear me now We used to speak the language of the bird Lost under the concrete metal word Stand here now to translate for the Earth Hear me now I do not own this land, and nor will I ever I do not own this land, and nor will I ever I do not own you my friend, and nor will I ever I do not own you my friend, and nor will I ever Hear me now _

- Lyrics - You are the air You are the water 'Cause without them what would you be The earth and sky and all of space and time Are completely necessary Treat the Earth as a sister or brother As you should know Nature's your Mother And it's such a shame that we take more than we give When we've taken it all, where do we plan to live Respect your ancestors, and Stop and listen Be a good ancestor, and Take care of what we've been given You are the air You are the water 'Cause without them what would you be The earth and sky and all of space and time Are completely necessary And it's such a joy to live in the here and now But the future someday will be here and now And how do we expect, expect our persistence If we can't come to respect Existence Respect your ancestors, and Stop and listen Be a good ancestor, and Take care of what we've been given Respect your ancestors, and Respect Existence Be a good ancestor, and Show them to expect resistance _

- Lyrics - I'll sing my sorrows from the rooftops I'll sing my sorrows from my grave I'll sing my sorrows 'till the morning breaks I'll sing until I let go, let go of this ache I wonder can you hear my fever I wonder can you see the reasons why I've got a fervor in this maddening time But I've gotta rise up singin', this world won't pass me by And when you talk about distruction You know that you can count me in We've got to tear down these walls and ignorance And plant a better seed that we keep on nurturing I'll sing my sorrows from the rooftops I'll sing my sorrows from my grave I'll sing my sorrows 'till the morning breaks I'll sing until I let go, let go of this ache _

- Lyrics - I feel myself movin' on Takin' one more step down the line Oh I feel myself movin on Takin' one more step down the line But I'm not ready yet I left my family behind The time has disappeared Slipped out from underneath my feet Yes the time has disappeared Slipped out from underneath my feet Hopped on a railway train Now I'm headed back east And I can't help but feel my heart It swells with a sorrow I do not wish to leave this place The mountains they do inspire And I feel much gratitude Yes the mountains they do inspire And I feel much gratitude As I return to the plain I hope the feelin' will remain And I can't help but feel my heart It swells with a sorrow I do not wish to leave this place _
