    Come Clean - Lyrics

    The Buddha sat for 7 years under a tree watching the river wash him clean
    John the Baptist told Jesus to wade in the stream so he could wash him clean
    And I am listening

    Come sit down this kitchen table is made of Shaker wood, it is strong and has a spirit running through it
    Give me details of your life and I will pour the wine, maybe we will find ‘in vino veritas’
    Come clean, come clean, come clean, come clean with me

    At times I feel alone, so I peek through your window
    If we threw them wider we might ask: why are we hiding?

    The Buddha had a wife and child, lived a life of luxury
    Jesus knew a woman, defended thugs and thieves
    You have lived and loved your way, made your own mistakes
    But who am I to judge? I’ve lived the same way
    Come clean, come clean, come clean, come clean with me

    At times I feel alone, so I peek through your window
    If we threw them wider we might ask: why are we fighting?

    If you trust me you’ll find trust, love me you’ll find love, I’ll tear down my defenses
    It doesn’t matter if we’re friends, enemies, lovers, or countries
    Just come clean, come clean, come clean with me

  • 2 Still 3:45 Lyrics

    Still - Lyrics

    The sea breeze is blowing so hard I feel the salt in this city gloom
    It gusts through the windows, swirls and it eddies, blows open the door to my room
    You are lying in bed, but not in the bed in my room
    Still, still, still I can feel you

    The waves are a constant, tumbling, turning anything dropped in the pool
    shells turn to sandbars, stone to gravel, and glass to glittering jewels
    The moon is pulling the tide, pulling on me and you
    Still, still, still I can feel you

    My street is so quiet, this late at night
    The houses stand sentinel as I walk by street lamp light
    You drive home in your car, while I pause on my stoop

    Remember the time before this storm set in?
    There was nothing we could not weather
    Now we’re weaving and bobbing on uncharted water
    Where do we begin? Where do we go from here?
    Now the ocean is crazy, doing it’s same thing over and over again
    It needs a new motion, change in direction, learn a new step for it’s dance
    You are sitting right here, not even touching my hand
    Still, still, still I can feel you

  • 3 Happy Girl 3:52 Lyrics

    Happy Girl - Lyrics

    I am happy girl, I am a happy girl
    And though sometimes I get sad, I am a happy girl

    I have an open heart, I have an open heart
    And though sometimes I feel bad, I have an open heart

    And I love this world, even when it hurts
    I am a happy girl, I am a happy girl

    I have a peaceful soul, I have a peaceful soul
    And though sometimes I get mad, I have a peaceful soul

    I have quiet mind, I have a quiet mind
    And though sometimes I react, I have a quiet mind

    And I love this world, even when it hurts
    I am a happy girl, I am a happy girl

    And I love this world, even when it hurts
    I am happy girl, I am a happy girl, I am a happy girl
    And though sometimes I get sad, I am a happy girl

  • 4 Abigail 4:34 Lyrics

    Abigail - Lyrics

    Abigail is four years old and she starts kindergarten in two weeks
    She’ll talk to you if she’s able, when she’s shy she smiles and shows her cheeks
    I am pleased to meet you Abigail
    She ate dinner at the table next where I stood to sing and play
    She wrote a note to thank me for the music but she could not spell her name
    I am proud of my friend Abigail
    Oh, Abigail I hope to sing and dance and play
    I hope you learn to find your dreams, live them every day
    because Abigail there’s a big, big world out there
    “I was shy once, just like you” it was the best that I could say
    hoping she would understand that she wouldn’t always feel this way
    And that I had faith in my friend Abigail
    “I like you” she said to me, in her small, quiet steady way
    “I like you too” I responded, barely breathing as she held my gaze
    And now I hug good-bye Abigail
    Oh, Abigail I hope to sing and dance and play
    I hope you learn to find your dreams, live them every day
    because Abigail there’s a big, big world out there
    Slowly I packed up my guitar, headed on my way
    When halfway down the block I heard a small voice call out my name
    And there she stood, my friend Abigail
    She came back to say good-bye, she came back one more time,
    she came back to say good-bye to me again
    Oh, Abigail I hope you sing and dance and play
    I hope you learn to find your dreams, live them every day
    oh Abigail there’s a big, big world
    Abigail I hope you sing and dance and play
    I hope you learn to find your dreams, live them every day
    because Abigail there’s a big, big love
    Abigail there’s a big, big love
    Abigail there’s a big, big love, a big love inside of you

  • 5 Before I Go Home 4:13 Lyrics

    Before I Go Home - Lyrics

    There were words in your glance
    On my back I felt your hands
    There was intention I had not known
    I will find you before I go home

    There was a frost out on the lawn
    There was gooseflesh that was on my arms
    I was outside, but you were warm
    I will find you before I go home

    I was lost but now you're found
    I may be far but not for long
    There may be mountains then I will climb
    Just keep in mind

    That I will run, and I will hide
    It just might take me some time
    Because I am water but you are stone
    And I will find you before I go home
    Honey, I will find you before I go home

  • 6 Paris 3:56 Lyrics

    Paris - Lyrics

    I’m going to spend all my nights in Paris
    I’m going to stroll out along the Seine
    I’m going to watch the moon hovering over the Louvre
    See the sun come up by Notre Dame

    I’m going to spend all my nights in Paris
    See the lights from an Eiffel Tower view
    I want to sip un café on the Champs-Elysees
    Send all my postcards back to you

    Remember when we came to Paris
    We took our vacation in Versailles
    We drank champagne down in Champagne
    For the holidays we found that Nice is nice!

    Now I spend all my nights in Paris
    I’m going to stroll out along the Seine
    I’m going to watch the moon hovering over the Louvre
    See the sun come up by Notre Dame

    Sometimes later on when I lie awake at night
    You slip into my thoughts and in my dreams
    And I will think about the life we never had
    And it won’t remotely bother me

    That you left me here in Paris
    Well, now I’ve chosen to live abroad
    You can leave the girl in Paris
    But you cannot make her feels she’s lost

    Now I’ll spend all my nights in Paris
    And stroll out along the Seine
    I’m going to watch the moon hovering over the Louvre
    See the sun come up by Notre Dame
    Je vais regarder la lune planant au-dessus du Louvre
    Et voir le soleil se lever par Notre Dame

  • 7 Make It Last 4:52 Lyrics

    Make It Last - Lyrics

    Let’s make it last all night, until the morning light
    Let’s make it real, because I want to feel so right

    You healed the dark red scars on my heart
    I know that you wouldn’t want them torn back apart
    Your honesty is not lost on me
    I’ll let you go, but it won’t be easy

    Let’s make it last all night, until the morning light
    Let’s make it real, because I want to feel so right
    If it’s the last time

    Why do I feel so young and green
    It isn’t the first time I’ve let go of my dream
    Truth is, I know you are not meant for me
    Still it’s hard to see you leave

    … all night, until the morning light
    Let’s make it real, because I want to feel so right
    If it’s the last time, let’s make it last

    There’s a beautiful golden light
    I see it shining through this darkest night
    I’ll find some ease in the sweet, blue midnight
    So before you take flight, let’s make it last

    The colors all blend into one
    Dark red, midnight blue, green, and gold
    Maybe I’m afraid of the future unknown
    So while I still have you here to hold
    …all night, until the morning light
    Let’s make it real, because I want to feel so right
    If it’s the last time, let’s make it last

  • 8 Make You Mine 3:22 Lyrics

    Make You Mine - Lyrics

    What if I told you then that I loved you? If I went back in time
    And told you then that I loved you, could I make you mine?

    The night we met I caught you lookin’, as I noticed you looked away
    Later that same night I called out to say goodbye,
    you ran straight up and looked me in the eye

    What if I told you then that I loved you? If I went back in time
    And told you then that I loved you, could I make you mine?

    That time you drove me back from New York City, it took all night in your van
    you told me that our talking had kept you from smoking,
    better than drugs is what I am
    What if I told you then that I loved you? If I went back in time
    And told you then that I loved you, could I make you mine?

    Late night drinking on your birthday, you asked if I would stay
    maybe I should’ve known you never would be bolder,
    but baby why don’t you try me when you’re sober
    What if I told you then that I loved you? If I went back in time
    And told you then that I loved you, could I make you mine?

    So I love you…now you know, seeing you reminds me all the more
    Never thought I would but someone told me that I should,
    because you never, ever know
    What if I told you then that I loved you? If I went back in time
    And told you then that I loved you, could I make you mine?

  • 9 Sympathy 4:44 Lyrics

    Sympathy - Lyrics

    Opulent endings, faith-filled beginnings, you haven’t had for a while
    Not since the voices, they’ve cut you to pieces, can’t trust your own mind
    Keeping things in order, you’re in control at last
    Of the ghosts from your childhood you never could get past, get past

    I can feel what you’re sending from miles away, my heart here is aching in misery
    I can feel what you’re sending from miles away, my heart’s resonating in sympathy

    As kids we were different, I was the shy one, you that outspoken clown
    Today I go boldly across this country, while you’re afraid to drive downtown
    Keeping things in order, you’re in control at last
    Of the ghosts from your childhood you never could get past, get past

    I can feel what you’re sending from miles away, my heart here is aching in misery
    I can feel what you’re sending from miles away, my heart’s resonating in sympathy

    I thought of you this morning, how years have passed, my breath caught in my throat
    But you’re still here with the living, I still have a chance, before you choose to go
    Keeping things in order, you’re in control at last
    Of the ghosts from your childhood you never could get past, get past

    I can feel what you’re sending from miles away, my heart here is aching in misery
    Can’t you feel what I’m sending from miles away, my heart’s resonating in sympathy

  • 10 This World 4:02 Lyrics

    This World - Lyrics

    I’m grateful to the mountains for reminding me I’m small
    And showing me the way to hold my head up tall
    I’m humbled before nature painting picture perfect scenes
    On this canvas that we live in that is constantly changing
    I love this world, this world
    I love this whole, this whole wide world
    I’m grateful to the paper and the pen with which I write
    Being midwife to my thoughts and bringing them to life
    I’m humbled by the muses who’ve given me the songs
    That helped me through my days, made the nights seem not so long
    I love this world this world
    I love this whole, this whole wide world
    I’m grateful to my parents for bringing me to Earth
    My family, friends and lovers for showing me what my life is worth
    I’m humbled by this moment, as it’s all we ever have
    And the power that’s within it can give us peace
    Peace at last
    I love this world this world
    I love this whole, this whole wide world

  • 11 Let Me Remember It 5:31 Lyrics

    Let Me Remember It - Lyrics

    Well I’m lonely and I’m tired, and I’m giving up the fight in my head
    I’m grounded and I’m surrounded by the beauty I know I’ll forget
    So please this time, oh God this time, oh this time please
    let me remember it
    Well I’m lonely and I’m happy and I’m letting go of things I regret
    I’m simple and I’m single, yet I’m getting all that life has to give
    So please this time, oh God this time, oh this time please
    let me remember it
    Now I’m driving through a valley with the Mississippi shining like glass
    I watch a baby spider spin his home between my window and my dash
    Jeff Buckley is on the radio, showing me the way out of the past
    Now I see you, and you’re smiling, and you listen to the words that I say
    And I’m happy because I am surrounded by the beauty that is everything
    So please this time, oh God this time, oh this time please
    let me remember it
