Track Name: Take Me With U
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.
Track Name: O I Long To Feel Your Arms Around Me
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
Track Name: No More
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.
Track Name: Magnus
MAGNUS
Gretchen Parlato / Magnus Thompson-Marcelin

One day the most beautiful girl in the world
She made the most beautiful boy in the world
And then the most beautiful boy in the world
He sang this most beautiful song to the world

Ah wee
Ah woh
Ah wah
Ah wah ya wee

And then the most beautiful girl in the world
She made one more beautiful boy in the world
And then all three beautiful souls of the world
They sang this most beautiful song to the world
Track Name: God Is In The Details
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
Track Name: I Wanna Fly So Free
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
Track Name: Sweetheart
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.
Track Name: I Asked
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
Track Name: To Up And Go
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.
Track Name: Push Me Away
PUSH ME AWAY
M. Jackson, R. Jackson, S. E. Jackson, M. Jackson, T. Jackson

Live and sigh, crying eyes
Your touch, your heart, your warmth lullaby
Live to dream, don't it seem
The tears, the pain,
Reality

Don't you know
These dreams i wish could be
The real you and me
I come running back to you
You push me away, you push
You push me away

Darken days, go away
The nights are bright, dream and stay
As i dream loving you
Your touch, your heart, your warmth
Please come true

Don't you know
These dreams i wish could be
The real you and me
I come running back to you
You push me away, you push
You push me away
Track Name: Tillery
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.
