Track Name: Marjorie
be the light in the garden.
be the wind at my feet.
I thought I heard you in the morning.
I thought I caught your voice was calling.

I wring my hands, I wait.
I have lost my way.

and after we parted, I got lost in the garden.
where I wander, and falter,
where I dream of you often
in the cold light of always
through the bent march of my days
where I'll leave the light on, through the darkest of darkness.

I bend my thoughts so they all surround you,
I curl my prayers around your name.

I wring my hands, I wait.
I have lost my way.

and after you parted, I got lost in the garden.
where I wander, and falter,
where I dream of you often (where i breathe through the ocean…)
in the cold light of always,
through the bent march of my days,
where i'll leave a light on, through the darkest of darkness.

but even as I go,
before I even know,
the ripples of your days
push out and change our shape.

when the plane crashed, did you feel it?
did you think of me only?
as the snow fell upon you, did you think of our baby?
as the night came, did you know that we'd never find you?
so I leave the light on through the darkest of darkness.
Track Name: June
light through the doorway comes
you are the fear that I’d run from
you are the leaves come to call
a season returned that I forgot

feels louder than light
cutting the night just like a knife
spin me around and I lose my way
a dream returned that I forgot

can you be what I need?
see what I see?

all the simple things
coffee, the paper, the evening breeze
getting lost in the north cascades,
planning a life that just can’t wait

can I be what you need
see what you see
looking out across Portage Bay

oh, I pull you in from the cold
so here we are

can we be who we want?
do we know where this will lead?
how do I quiet these growing fears that govern me?
well I know where I begin, and I know where I’d like to end
I have been to the shadowed edge
I have seen the weary rest
where are we now?
Track Name: Holding Hours
when the morning rose with the cold
pulling on your faded coat
just to wander away

watching dust rushing by
holding hours as they slide
is there any hope at all?

long like rivers we’re all running
trying to find a way home
I was young and I was yearning
but I’m always made up of you
Track Name: Even If
only as I start to watch it fall apart do I do anything
even if I saw you start to walk away, would I say anything?

winter's been cold so I'm bound to the fire.
leave it for what? yeah right.
everything's all in it's place, all in line
collecting dust, keeping time

in the dark unseen and selfish
I think i've earned this accidental
life of ease, of peace, of beauty
a good man is hard to find

only as I start to watch it fall apart do I do anything
even if I saw you start to walk away, would I say anything?

winter's been cold so I'm bound to the fire,
reeling around for an answer.
but nothing is clear in the shade of a shadow
you were the light that I needed

in the dark unseen and selfish
I can't see the damage i've done
I can't see the path i'm on
a good man is hard to find

only as I start to watch it fall apart do I do anything
even if I saw you start to walk away, would I say anything?
even if you leave to go on your own way, would it mean anything?
Track Name: Different Now
close to the edge
lean into the wind
where I breathe it in,
breathe it out

you’re holding me back
so I’m cutting the line
you might fall behind
fall behind

we’re so out of touch these days it seems
but I don’t mind it, not at all
I move like water in the dark

are we alright
it’s been such a long time
well we’re different now
different now

move through the night
a whistle in the dark
I can’t trace it back
can’t find it again

I’m so out of touch these days it seems
I don’t mind it, not at all
it’s all just water in the dark, yeah

I let it all slip away
What’s left when it all goes away?

wrong way around
I need you now

but I let it all slip away
I let it all slip away
Track Name: The Pattern
on my way to your house
I take the long way there
the dusty road in the arms of the hills
but nothing’s the same

leaving here with nothing to show for
spending all my time looking ‘round
for what’s gone now

so you want to return
by the path you came
well it’s overgrown, hid away
nothing’s the same

leaving here with nothing to show for
spending all my time looking ‘round
for what’s gone now
even when my mind’s made up
I fall into the pattern again
where’s my way back?

leaving here with nothing to show for
spending all my time looking ‘round
for what’s gone now
even when my mind’s made up
I fall into the pattern again
where’s my way back?
Track Name: Adrift
gather your strength and start again
adrift in a long and seamless wind
wade through the water and slip
under the light and let it in

leave all the thoughts that flood your mind.
adrift in the dark, get through the dark
I govern the tide, I’m all but the moon
I govern the tide, I’m all but the moon

through the fire, into the waves I
I’ll come to find you
Track Name: Low Moon
wait by the door
seek a sign of something more
let the last light of day
slowly bend around your frame

wake in the night
to the low moon on the horizon
this is only for a while
yeah it’s only for a while

wake in the cold
watch the mountains as they unfold
in the first light of day
as it bends around your frame
Track Name: Diffuse
nevermind the fury, nevermind
in the ocean turning with the timing of the tide

should I wait here for you by the ocean?
I feel the night wind and it’s blowing the bloom from the fevered, falling vine

nevermind the fever, nevermind
it’ll pass in good time
with the turning of the tide

should I wait here for you by the ocean?
I feel the night wind and it’s blowing the bloom from the fevered, falling vine

riven here on unhewn shoreline
shattered from the blow
is this the end or my beginning?
I don’t really know

in the salt I fall asleep, tortuous but now complete, diffuse

should I wait here for you by the ocean?
I feel the night wind and it’s blowing the bloom from the fevered, falling vine

riven here on unhewn shoreline
scattered to the end
the weary calls of many mouths
released into the wind
is this the end or my beginning
I don’t wanna know

in the salt we fall asleep
all the while you look for me, diffuse
Track Name: Late Summer Grass
so this is truth, everything all bittersweet and draped in shadow
I’m waiting around but I

can’t quite recall what i’ve been waiting on
the leaves to turn and fall?
for the night to lift from the ground?
I’m reaching for your hand
bending long like late summer grass

wild eyed in the dawn
I never can sleep
I never can feel
wild eyed in the dawn
I’m waiting around but I

can’t quite recall what i’ve been waiting on
the leaves to turn and fall?
for the night to lift from the ground?
I’m reaching for your hand
holding on like late summer grass

Ooh I can’t give you up
Ooh I still need your love
Oooh is my mind made up?

can’t quite recall what i’ve been waiting on
the leaves to turn and fall?
for the night to lift from the ground?
can’t quite begin
to understand where you went
well it all returns again
ashes to dust in the end

Still I’m reaching for your hand
holding on to late summer
reaching for your hand
holding on like late summer
