Track Name: Feel Right
no one wants to feel
something that don’t feel right
no one wants to ask
someone who can’t hear you
but without feeling wrong
how can we know what feels right?

no one wants to love
someone who don’t love you
but without feeling wrong
how can we know what feels right?

no one wants to feel something that don’t feel right
Track Name: No River
i can’t keep running, i’m no river
i can’t keep running 'cause i’m no river i can’t run forever, i’m no river
i’m human, i’m human
i won’t hurt you, i’m no fire
i won’t help you, i’m no fire but i won’t kill you, i’m no fire
and i know that i’m alive today but i’m human, i’m human
i can’t sit still, i’m no mountain
i can’t sit so still ‘cause i’m no mountain i can’t sit still forever, i’m no mountain
i’m human, i’m human
i know that i’m alive today, but
i’m human, i’m human
Track Name: Francine
Oh Francine, don’t you be so mean,
you don’t belong to me
you look so good and you feel so good
i’d keep you if i could
i’d make you mine (yes i would)

yeah Francine you’re almost
all that i need,
you and me and my man make three
you look so good and you feel so good and
i’d keep you if i could
i’d make you mine (yes i would)

Oh Francine, you ride like a dream
just like light through a stone on a crown on a queen
you look so good and you feel so good
i’d keep you if i could i’d make you mine (yes i would)

oh Francine don’t be so mean you don’t belong to me
Track Name: Moth Song
every night i fly into your light
and your light, burns my wings
every time

in the dark
my heart goes blind

when i try to reach and
touch your fire oh my love,
i lose my mind

in your light
i lose my mind

and i want you so bad
i want you so bad it kills me

when i come inside from the outside
yeah i die, every night
like a fool in your lampshade

in the dark
my heart goes blind
in your light
i lose my mind
Track Name: The Waves
in my soft bed
through my dreams
next to her
i hear the waves

emeralds and pearls
rubies and gold
i brought home less than i left
under the waves

five times in a row
i left my home to stand
on a sinking boat
and i know when the waves
get a hold of your heart they don’t let go

she sleeps so sweetly
i wear my soft shoes
so she’ll only
hear the waves
Track Name: Guadalupe
night wraps itself up in the day, Guadalupe
the eye wraps itself in the hurricane, Guadalupe,
and i hear her say that
help ain’t far, it’s in your heart.

sugar wraps itself up in the cane, Guadalupe
the lightning wraps itself up in the rain, Guadalupe,
yeah i hear her say that
peace ain’t far, it’s in your heart.

the needle wraps itself up in the hay, Guadalupe
just like guilt wraps itself up in the blame, Guadalupe,
oh i hear her say that
love ain’t far, it’s in your heart.

the arrow wraps itself up in the aim, Guadalupe
just like the soul wraps itself up in a name like Guadalupe,
and i hear her say that
heaven ain’t far, it’s in your heart.
Track Name: Wantin' Ain't Gettin'
when i say good morning
and you say goodbye
with your arms wrapped around me,
when i ask if you love me
and you say that you might
with your arms wrapped around me,

and i heard that
wantin’ ain’t gettin’
now i know

when you are my lover
we turn out the light
i wanna believe you,
i’ve got your love wrapped around me
so i put up a fight ‘cause
i wanna believe you

but i heard that
wantin’ ain’t gettin’
now i know

and i heard how it hurts
yeah it kills all your nerve,
that shit makes you blue.
and i heard how you cry
like you’re wounded
now i know it’s true,

what i heard that
wantin’ ain’t gettin’
now i know
Track Name: Come See Me
if it left you while you were sleeping
and the morning lends you a light
oh your shadow is walking beside you

come and see me tonight

if they emptied out your pockets
and they hung you out to dry
but you’ve never felt such freedom

come and see me tonight

if you’re sorry that you didn’t
and you’re sorry that you might
oh, you’re keeping all of your secrets

come and see me tonight

if your cup is spilling over
that funeral dress, it don’t fit you right
try to move inside all that motion and

come and see me tonight
Track Name: We Were Wild
we were wild, wild wild wild,
looking hungry, wild wild wild,
taking turns sleeping, wild!

the end of the forest is the start of the sea,
we are wild and we are born to be

take your time, time time time,
it will take you time time time
to remember being wild.

the end of the forest is the start of the sea and
we are wild, yeah we are born to be.

from the start to the end to the start,
guard your wild heart!

we were wild, wild wild wild,
always moving, wild wild wild,
building fires, wild!

the end of the forest is the start of the sea,
and we are wild, oh we are born to be

from the start to the end to the start
guard your wild heart!

the end of the forest is the start of the sea
and we are wild, and we are born to be.
Track Name: Find It
lying by the western sea
i let the sky bury me
lying in the grass so green
i let the sky bury me

but don’t, don’t wait too long...
no don’t, don’t wait too long...

trying so hard not to see
i let my fear bury me
i was loving everyone but me
and i let my fear bury me

but don’t, don’t wait too long...
no don’t, don’t wait too long...

go out and find it
go find what you need!
go chase it down and find it
go and find what you need.

i was lying in his loving arms
and i let the night bury me
snow was falling but we were warm
i let the night bury me

but don’t, don’t wait too long...
no don’t, don’t wait too long...

go out and find it
go find what you need!
go chase it down and find it
go find what you need.
Track Name: Yours and Mine
in the light of your love
i’m a diamond, i shine

and all my life
i’d been answering the phone
to a dial tone

in the light of my love
you are a diamond, you shine

and maybe all your life
you’d been answering the phone
to a dial tone

in the light of your love
i die, i’m a diamond and i shine
in the light of my love
you’re all mine
Track Name: Alone
with my boyfriends, with my family,
sometimes I felt like I was living
alone

in a city, in a crowd,
sometimes I felt like I was standing
alone

in the movies, on the phone,
sometimes I felt like I was crying
alone

have you ever felt that way?
if you’ve ever felt that way,
you haven’t felt it alone

when my spirit leaves my body,
someday I’ll never, ever again feel
alone
