Track Name: Our Lantern
I'll love you when your lantern's low.
We'll be each others' holy glow.
So shadows dance away, reborn.
We'll stay all through a life well-worn.

Surprise you with a warm rain cloud.
A keepsake in a soft sun-growl.
Whenever it's a sure sad break,
A light inside a lantern shakes.

A story from a long, long way.
Beginnings of the Winter Stay.
A never-ending naked dream.
A word can fill an empty scene.

The singer cracks a smile through pain.
Her shoes are tapping to the change.
For traveling, she plays with sound.
I wonder if we hear what's found...

Our lantern is a lovely home,
For messages we send through stone.
The fabric of your shirt turns blue.
I know that we can sing straight through.
Track Name: When You Sing
You bring me closer to the art,
You give me headphones to my heart ,
When you sing to me, when you sing!

There's a signal in your song,
We've been searching for it long,
Truth is ringing deep, when you sing!

Don't let any cloud of regret
Weigh you down- keep singing instead.
I'll be hearing you.
Hear me singing, too!

Raise your words up, keep them bright,
Sing in hope that we'll make things right,
I'm a stronger soul, when you sing!

We've got progress yet to make,
Think of what we might create.
Each with our own light we can bring.

There's a song for us making it through.
Keep it going, and I'll join in with you.
We'll go on and on, we'll live on in song!
Track Name: The Big Sadness
What could I write?
What could I sing, that would one day bring you home,
Bring you back to my side?
A giving light...
A christmas swing, well it's all so far away now,
Since your leaving.

How would we fit?
We had no time, to feel our way into that place
Of gental being...
If this is it, and the end's in sight,
I'll look back on quiet moments, and still feel something.

I took your hiding as a sign, that all was not right.
Between us shining, I felt fire, but now it's fading.
Oh, it's fading...

Wet city streets,
I walked at night, wondering how the sky could hold on so long
To such a glow.
When did we meet?
Now it comes back- your sister danced in circles 'round us
In the falling snow.

Was I too open, just when you needed distance?
Should I keep hoping that soon, we'll make up the difference?

I took your hiding as a sign, that all was not right.
Between us shining, I felt fire, but now it's fading.
Oh, it's fading...
Track Name: Good Love is Coming
So you see, I'm not quite read to let you go.
I can see so much of that goodness in your soul.
So we breathe, and I've gone quiet, and somewhere
A star explodes

You're a long way, a long way from finding the love you seek.
It's a song, say it in songs, but it won't come across so clear.
And we breathe, and all around, trees find a way to make branches meet.

You've got love left, so feed it.
Feel the warmth of something secret.
You've got to keep it open, so good love can
Find a way in.
If this is what you want, keep fighting.
But don't forget, it takes tenderness to let light in.
You've got to keep it open, so good love can
Find a way in.

And it's gonna find a way in.

So it's true, I can't be with you, and that's just the way it is.
But the truth, is I can be true to you, and grateful that we have met.
So we breathe, and I truly believe, our hearts echo in ways
We can't yet see.

You've got love left, so feed it.
Feel the warmth of something secret.
You've got to keep it open, so good love can
Find a way in.
If this is what you want, keep fighting.
But don't forget, it takes tenderness to let light in.
You've got to keep it open, so good love can
Find a way in.

And it's gonna find a way in.
