TAKE ME WITH U Prince Rogers Nelson I can’t disguise the pounding of my heart It beats so strong It’s in your eyes what can I say They turn me on Come on and touch the place in me That’s calling out your name We want each other oh so much Why must we play this game I don’t care where we go I don’t care what we do I don’t care pretty baby Just take me with u. 2 be around you is so right You’re sheer perfection Drive me crazy Drive me all night Just don’t break down the connection I don’t care if we spend the night at your mansion I don’t care if we spend the night on the town All I want is 2 spend the night together All I want is 2 spend the night in your arms.

O I LONG TO FEEL YOUR ARMS AROUND ME Joshua Tillman Everyone’s riding on the rolling tide Their hearts are heavy and the sea is wide I’ll never make it to the other side Friends of mine O I long to feel your arms around me. Oh my love

No More Music by: Becca Stevens Lyrics by Becca Stevens & William Stevens No more tears shed by the sea, ’Cause the sea has tears enough from me. See all the waves, hear all of them break? The waves need no more tears from me. No more love songs out of tune, Because the love in those songs dies too soon. See all the waves, feel all of them break? The waves need no more heartbreak from me. Old man ocean, long white beard, Sees my folly, gathers my tears. Only this for eternity Ancient wisdom kept alive by Young moon dances overseas, She is full and pulling me. She can dance to anything, But no more sad love songs in three. No more sad love songs in three, ’Cause the meter makes the love dizzy. See all the waves, hear all of them say: No more dizzy love songs in three.

GOD IS IN THE DETAILS Rebecca Martin In the wake of early morning Is the crushing task before her So she’s up before she wants to And he’s deep inside his pillow There’s no God that’s in her corner O, but God is in the details All the small things go unnoticed In the certainty of slowing Stay if you want Don’t change your mind again For the sake of never knowing She imagines life alone Like her youth it’s all romantic In its innocence and madness Stay if you want. Don’t change your mind again In her time she’ll stand open Out in the world like she’s never been Alone but a part of everything There’s nothing wrong Just be. The signs are all deserving. What’s creeping in? The need to change So what has always been is not repeated

I WANT TO FLY SO FREE Music by: Gretchen Parlato Lyrics by: Eureka I want to fly so free and so high I want to fly so very high in the sky I believe I can see the clouds I can hear the birds singing loud I believe I can see my sister and forget about how much I miss her. I want to walk with my friends to their house Along the road I’ll see a mouse And the mouse will tell me to find some treasure and then so tall I will measure

SWEETHEART Rebecca Martin I dreamt of you last night All nestled up inside my head There you are again With the ones who’d come out to see you To hear the songs you’d sing Sitting pretty and ladylike Pretending to be full but aching for more. What’s the use to sit around and moan Or long to be close to someone I’ve never known I was one who’d come out to see you To hear the songs you’d sing Sitting pretty and lady like Pretending to be full but aching for more Wanting to be the drunk sweetheart Maybe the next time around you and I Will see each other again.

I ASKED Becca Stevens I asked my love What do you need To make your wild heart beat? And this my love He said to me, wholeheartedly Whatever makes you happy darling Whatever makes you smile for me Whatever makes you happy That’s all I need In sober times When troubles find A taste for gravity I ask myself, “What do you need To let the weight release?” Whatever makes you happy darling Whatever makes you smile for me Whatever makes you happy That’s all I need

TO UP AND GO Rebecca Martin All the summer long there was a choice to make A face amongst the crowd, the sun was beating down You’ve come to far to up and go Believe me when I tell you so. Just before the dawn there was a calling out Everyone stood eyes and ears and gaping mouths You’ve come to far to up and go Believe me when I tell you so All the summer long.

TILLERY Becca Stevens Poetry by Jane Tyson Clement & Becca Stevens (“Winter”) The dark emerging trees from the new-winter wood are lovelier than leaves, as cold is also good. The heart’s necessities include the interlude of frost-constricted peace on which the sun can brood. No season of the soul strips clear the face of God save cold and frozen wind upon the frozen sod. The strong and caustic air that strikes us to the bone blows till we see again the weathered shape of home. No season of the soul strips clear the face of God save cold and frozen wind upon the frozen sod. (“Spring”) Dusk settles in later this time of year fireflies; nighttime’s chandelier. Night’ll come as days must end but soon the sun will rise again. Sadness sheds in layers, leading us here. Springtime's winter’s souvenir. Winter clothes, and winter fears, winter weight is so last year. I think what makes spring so sweet Not the roses, but beneath Is the underlying truth That everything must go so soon. (from “February Thaw”) So may we shout, and may we sing, Blessed thaw, O holy spring.

May this music bring moments of peace amidst troubled times.
