Track Name: Delayed Departure
delayed departure, back to the gate
a little light blinks, our evening at stake
dinner at six or seven, maybe eight
my calendar fixed, your calendar fate

the stars lined up so our romance could bloom
they've since gone to lunch, so we've gotta make due

delayed arrival, circling the runway
a bolt, a clap, and a window in grey
tell everybody we're running late
they're calendar fixed, your calendar fate

the stars lined up so our romance could bloom
they've since gone to lunch, so we've gotta make due

the clock is winding down
as you're riding the wind down
you're so close now
we'll make every moment count
we'll make every moment count

the stars line up so our romance could bloom
they've since gone to lunch, so we've gotta make due
Track Name: Sounds Like 3
you thought I'd be an easy no
wave your hand and away I'd go
but I'm not your average woman, I'm like your worst opponent
returning twice as hard your blow

wrap your fists, lick your lips and pray
wrap your fists, lick your lips, I say:

Victory sounds like 3 (1, 2, victory, 1, 2, victory...)

you'd think by now you'd really know
who you're leading who you're needing to grow
but you've had one too many bruises, and you're the one who loses
when you and I go toe to toe

wrap your fists, lick your lips and pray
wrap your fists, lick your lips, I say:

Victory sounds like 3 (1, 2, victory, 1, 2, victory...)

quick on my feet I won't retreat from you, from you
what a lazy try, and now you can't deny that to me

Victory sounds like 3 (1, 2, victory, 1, 2, victory...)
Track Name: Curbside Poetry
marigolds and sunshine
one holds the season, one holds the time
growing orange and reaching rays
stretching to touch each other during the day

pulling up to curbside poetry, accidentally
I see all this beauty for free

lightning bugs and moonlight
one burns innately, one needs the night
glowing green and mirroring
extending out in the dark just trying to be seen

pulling up to curbside poetry, accidentally
I see all this beauty for free

it's a drive-by revelation - marigolds in bloom
idle hesitation in my caffeinated noon
can it really be that orange and yellow's all I need
to get perspective on my blue

pulling up to curbside poetry, accidentally
I see all this beauty for free
Track Name: How Absurd
how fitting that uncertainty is just where ya need to be
unfolding, slowly, aching in every curl
underwater now, don't breathe...

how absurd, the certain world
how absurd, the certain world

how appropriate that all of your doubt would be your way out
stepping gently, but intently
in a dream state, don't hesitate...

how absurd, the certain world
how absurd, the certain world

I am the wall, I am the rope, I build the steps and the hope
Track Name: A Cloud
riding high, with the wind
floating on a blue whim
dunno my shape, dunno my size
but I feel the sunshine and I'm alive

soak me up, rain me down, drifting as a cloud

shrinking as I make things grow
and maybe they will never ever know
it matters not the length or the time
disappearing as I arrive

soak me up, rain me down, drifting as a cloud
Track Name: Affected
lightning sparks the darkness
and the rain splatters around
like tiny feet marching from the clouds
hear the rumble and take cover
we smell the earth and we wonder

what will you be if you give up?
what will you be if you give up?

stars shine bright like our lust
and again fade into dust
must find a new way to combust
lighting up, reaching out
see the whole world in a sweeping curl

what will you be if you give up?
what will you be if you give up?

the wind draws in and exhales
and we are a sail

what will you be if you give up?
what will you be if you give up?
Track Name: Savannah Tree
what is there to say about this change
it doesn't feel real, but the calendar reveals
a naked ambition, avoiding attrition
but I feel the pressure

am I coal to make diamonds?
or food for the lions -
and maybe I'll make a pretty savannah tree

what do I escape, what will take shape
if time is around, will I some way, somehow
catch my stumble, recover my fumble
but I feel the weight

am I coal to make diamonds?
or food for the lions -
and maybe I'll make a pretty savannah tree

am I coal to make diamonds?
or food for the lions -
and maybe I'll make a pretty savannah tree
Track Name: Out of Thin Air
does a single sigh
make the heights too high?
unreachable sky.

does a simple shrug
make a victim?
unsolvable conundrum.

pull it out of thin air
pull it out of thin air

can the tongue unfurl
to change the world
while still clutching its pearls?

if its said just right
can words become life?
can the notes breathe poetry into night?

pull it out of thin air
pull it out of thin air

make it bold. turn the globe. secrets unfold...

pull it out of thin air
pull it out of thin air
Track Name: Out of Thin Air (piano version)
does a single sigh
make the heights too high?
unreachable sky.

does a simple shrug
make a victim?
unsolvable conundrum.

pull it out of thin air
pull it out of thin air

can the tongue unfurl
to change the world
while still clutching its pearls?

if its said just right
can words become life?
can the notes breathe poetry into night?

pull it out of thin air
pull it out of thin air

make it bold. turn the globe. secrets unfold...

pull it out of thin air
pull it out of thin air
