Track Name: Little Sparks (Hushed Mix)
LITTLE SPARKS

V1
Stain the hands spilling out the land
Mine the soul stooped and dropping low
Water rolls thin and gold


CH
Glimmer and a speck
Fleeting little fleck (2x)
Something in the heart
Eating little sparks (2x)


V2
Hands that sing hum and sting
Beckoning sacred scenes
All along sparse to speak


CH
Glimmer and a speck
Fleeting little fleck (2x)
Something in the heart
Eating little sparks (2x)


B
Something in the heart
Eating little sparks oh oh (4x)
Oh whoa oh oh oh (4x)
Track Name: Until The Day Dims (Sundown Mix)
UNTIL THE DAY DIMS (SUNDOWN MIX)


V1
That day Saturday took us to your door
Sat in the kitchen with windows
Open so wide
Slowly candidly words were unfolding
Hands on the table and grasping
Comfort our souls


CH
And we’ll linger
Until the day dims
Suddenly leaves us
Then we’ll go

And we’ll linger
Until the night falls
Flooding the sidewalks
Then we’ll go

V2
We tried not to collide with the moment
Wear it away like a photograph
Yellow with time
Young spring it can be fleeting we gather
Holding the tones of our laughter
Filling the room


CH
And we’ll linger
Until the day dims
Suddenly leaves us
Then we’ll go

And we’ll linger
Until the night falls
Flooding the sidewalks


B
Oh oh oh ohhhh
Oh oh oh ohhhh
Oh oh oh ohhhh


CH
And we’ll linger
Until the day dims
Suddenly leaves us
Then we’ll go

And we’ll linger
Until the night falls
Flooding the sidewalks
Then we’ll go
Track Name: Gems And Bones (Acoustic)
GEMS AND BONES (ACOUSTIC)


V1
I try to say goodbye
This morning good morning
When I find myself inside
You’re living there so fierce and fair


V2
And I try to say goodnight
Tomorrow, oh sorrow
When I climb limbs of mine
You’re seated there my breast is bare



CH
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I will not stay afraid


V3
My eyes scan the sky
A crow appears black and light
As she sows gems and bones
Sticks and seeds, the pretty things


CH
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I will not stay afraid


B
Da da da, da da da da da da


CH
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I cannot stay away
And I will not stay afraid

SUMMERLAND (CARNIVAL MIX)


V1
I want to be
Eating honey from your hand
In the Summerland
Can we run
Through the grass and all the reeds
And meet oh pretty please

V2
And we will dance
To the songs that plague our heads
In the Summerland
And we will speak
Without saying anything
Much of anything


CH
You know what I don’t
About the Summerland
Oh you know what I don’t
About the Summerland


V3
That old wind
Rushing like it’s always been
In the Summerland
Once you have come
Through the doors that look like trees
There’s no returning

CH
You know what I don’t
About the Summerland
Oh you know what I don’t
About the Summerland


B
Mmmm Mmmmm
Oh Da da da da
Mmmm Mmmmm
Oh Da da da da


V4
How strange it is
To not recollect all that
Life had ever been
You cannot know
How you came or how to go
From the Summerland


CH
You know what I don’t
About the Summerland
Oh you know what I don’t
About the Summerland


B
Mmmm Mmmmm
Oh Da da da da

You came to me crawling between
Openings I couldn’t see
Inviting me on broken knees
Empty spaces begging me

To glance outside where life is
And I told you I would not go
For what you do that I know

There is more that is mine
I kissed that face I shut the door
