Track Name: Upstream
Upstream

When the red-winged blackbird
Calls me to the water
I know I will never be the same again.

On my way down,
Ferns and mallows soften under me
As I weave through the vapors,
Hands out.

Saying, I am ready to receive,
Ready to be taken.
A wave of flowers lift my feet
And the weight of this body, with patience

Till I drift upstream.
Where I’ll see everything and all that you are.
All that you are moves me.

When I feel the soil breaking free
Sliding down the banks between the colors of the spring.
I feel the warmth of a woman pouring out of me.

And what will I see, diving in deep?
Will the water be clear as the melting snow
That feeds your raging, wandering soul?

Will I see the wind?
High above me, humbling.
Will I bend like a willow,
Hands out?

Will I drift upstream.
Where I’ll see everything and all that you are.
All that you are
All that you are
moves me.
Track Name: March Winds
Dark on the rise
Shapes the hills that the white river runs.
She sings to me of sympathy.

And the rush of the water helps me to process
Another year living in boxes

If one thing could straighten me out,
It’d be the march winds, both feet on the ground.
Both feet on the ground

All that I’m after
Is to sink in to the soil.
Feeling my weight.
Feeling the weight of it all.

And the shifting cedars help me to process
Another year living in boxes.

If one thing could straighten me out.
It’d be the march winds,
both feet on the ground.
Track Name: Some Days Are Longer
Deep trouble is coming
I’ll take what my arms can carry.

And if I can’t get over this,
What then?
Some days are harder than others, I guess.

It couldn’t hurt this much, if I didn’t care enough.
It couldn’t hurt this much, if I didn’t care.

Smoked out of an endless summer.
This old house, burning down, will be the last thing I’ll remember.

If i can’t get over this,
What then?
Some days are longer than others, I guess.

It couldn’t hurt this much if I didn’t care enough.
It couldn’t hurt this much if I didn’t care.
Track Name: Part Of This Place
I gave forgiveness
And I loved you well
But as the fog burns off,
I wonder, will you stay here for the funeral
-Or dig deeper?

I’ve been a part of this place
And I’m never leaving.
I’m part of the feeling
And I can’t be replaced.
I can’t be replaced.

You’ll see more sky above you now
Where I gave you shelter.
But as the sun dries out your rivers
Would you come you come back for the funeral
-Or dig deeper?

I’ve been a part of this place
And I’m never leaving.
I’m part of the feeling
And I can’t be replaced.
I can’t be replaced.
