"Space for Days" Out September 1st

Space for Days [2017]

1. Space for days

Pick up the pieces and give it just another day
Quiet like lilac moving from the sun to the shade
Go by, step inside, it’s alright, have a drink on me
Monday’s fine, I don’t mind, what’s your name? 
Talk about the mundane grey goose; pick the pocket recluse, loose, 
Looking out the door to find
Outside conversations slow down, now it’s in the same vein, 
Pull out another spirit, man. 

I got space for days
What I matter didn’t say
Still keeping same

Let it all breathe

Outside conversation slow down, now it’s in the same vein, 
Pull out another spirit, man. 

2. Pour Down

Well it poured down rain this morning
What a time for the clouds to let it all out

And I was trying to tell you what I was thinking
When the words they all held tight to my tongue
And then I fell down into this groove, believing
That I could surely find some calm in sound

Well it poured down rain this morning
What a time for the clouds to let it all out

If I was a bird in flight, I’d listen for and turn my eye
To a rooftop oh nearby
So I could watch the trees green
Moving as the sky tapped light
And rolling off the leaves to dive
Deep into the earth

I would try to tell you what I was thinking
When the words they all held tight to my toungue
And I would try to tell you what I was thinking
I could surely find some calm in sound
  
 Well it poured down rain this morning
What a time for the clouds to let it all out

3. Telephone

Go along as you were
Sinking through the floor
Speak up the words you know
Hold on the telephone

Ohh what are you gonna do 

Go along it's alright
Call on the other line
Speak up, time to go  
Hold on the telephone

Ohh what are you gonna do 

I am here now
So come along
We are here now
So come along
  
Ohh what are you gonna

4. Sidewalk

Why, did you fall all the time
and begin, to forget our names?

Who, did the weight fall into?
Breathe, worry fall away

Hey there, watcha doin'?
Would you leave that burden behind?

Go, lay down on the floor
The window, light shine through

If only just for a moment
it would shine on a dream just right

Back when there were no sidewalks
No long roads, no dark and stormy dusty trails
This chica called Josefina,
With blue eyes, saw the world as if it all stopped

Right now the tree outside
Is the one that she would surely like to climb
Up and up and up and up she'll go
'Til dark clouds are far and bright below

And I can see her now
Dancing through the sky
It’s a marvelous sight 

Green lights on the hill side
It’s a marvelous sight

5. When I Fell Out...

Hush
Hush
I need you
I bleed you

Touch
Touch
You're gone now
Let it take you

When I sat alone what was I thinking?
Thoughts and memories creeping in
A hue of blue I turned, I could see then
Oh but I could not stop

When I fell out it was like a dream
From a dark sky the moon cried down to me  
He said "I’m ashamed"
And with long arms, he dropped me alone in the sea 

By the light tall waves crashed into mountains,
The sun pointed down to a fallen tree, 
Just like that tree we will all fall and
Break down to dirt in time 

Oh I watched it all
I was only thinking:
Am I living inside a dream?

I said fuck it all
I could sure believe in
A dream more serene than it seems

6. Innerstate

I pick apart the brains of the interstate and you catch me wide awake to see that I've been dreaming
Put the book on the floor with every knock at my front door it reminds me it isn't worth reading, anymore
But still I read it everyday, searching for the words that play like beams of light inside of an avalance
Out of mind and out of sight, I can tell tonight's the night the day never cared to shine on

Say goodbye to the golden leaves that grace the ground beneath your feet, a simple echo of the days that are to come
Could've tried to light a spark to the fire burning in the dark for an eternity that felt like a day
See it now, the dragonfly, skaters dancing in the sky as it falls down into the ocean
What they wrote, I cannot say, watch it now, clear as day, everyone we have is a moment

7. Josefina

Uno dos tres
Cuatro cinco seis siete

8. ¡Ay, qué pena!

There she goes again,
And she’s blown it
This train is…
And she knows it

Desperté pensando que todo andaba bien
¡Ay, qué pena!
Todo iba perfecto hasta recién
¡Ay, qué pena!
Calientas la pava pero no cebas los mates
¡Ay, qué pena!
No es lo mismo que voz hacías antes
¡Ay, qué pena!
Esto no puede seguir estando así
¡Ay, qué pena!
Para mi, voz ya dejaste de existir

9. Expiration date

You know it’s more than that I mean
That’s why I came right back
But I’m awfully scared you see
More than ordinarily

10. Sidewalk Slammer

Yesterday I found myself standing in the middle of the road,
Wheels turnin on both sides two and fro
Every time I tried to take a step out, a car would roll by
Tellin' me it's not my turn, so step aside

If it’s all the same to you, I’ll spend the night on the moon
Drinking champagne 'til the blues wash away
You can’t go there, you're stuck here
It's a damn shame

I began to take bigger and bigger steps out, lost my feet and spin around,
Wind blows by like a house falling down, I can’t catch myself
Then I saw you up there on the moon and I knew that I could be there too
i took the biggest step that I possibly could and landed next to you
 
 If its all the same to you, we could dance on the moon
Drinking champagne 'til I can’t see that road no more
No more, no more
Check it out now

¿What
Is
Yes?


EARTH TURNS [2016]

1. Seem Serene

Crawling under my skin
Close the door, let's begin
Synthesize my tired eyes
Broken in imagine my surprise
thoughts of you set in

Creeping up from below
Scar tissue that we used to know
Sympathy moves in disguise
Broken in imagine my surprise
yellow green, painted skies

On to the seem serene life
I'm lost inside, lost inside
And I got that haze in my mind
Up and down, we'll be alright

2. My Love, My love

Where did I go, what did I do when I was falling for you
Taking a step, take it on through to a life that we know
Down to the sand, under the stars there we would walk
Between our toes, our love it grows

When I hold you in my arms
And we gaze up at the stars
And the light, baby, it was shining through
A hundred galaxies just for you
I'd wait, for you

Where did I go, what did I do, when I gave it all to you
You took my hand, dancing slow, down the star lit street we’d roam
Laughing with you over a toast, to the good things in life we know
Lost in you, lord I knew

That we could never be far
As we stumble through the yard
And the sweet sweet love we know
We could never let it go

Down the river to the yard
Deep deep in the snow
We could never let it go
My love, my love take me home

3. We were words

You make me laugh
And that’s why I like you
The kindest eyes
Staring off into blue

And we were words
Dancing across your page
down to the beach
On Kendall Street

It’s been a long time
Too long, too long, too long
Life was simple then
I think were growing old

oh what I told you once is,
We could take the world by storm if we were one

Daylight fades
Barefoot running through trees
Down to the beach
In good company

We’ll watch the flames
reach up to kiss the sky
until the stars
Fade back into light

oh what I told you once is
We could take the world by storm if we were one

Oh what I told you once is
That life’s to short to spend it bein' alone

4. Cars

Come along and have a drink with me
We can talk about the world and how the world it turns so slow
Day and night I’ve found

Cars they drive and planes they fly
I look into the sun and the sky oh so bright
It’s you that I’ve found

Oh I know there’s not much longer now
Oh if the world would just slow down

The moon and the stars they sail across the sky
And I could watch you dance all through the night
When the rhythm is right

Oh and I know the sun its rising now
Oh if the world would just slow down

So you move with me and I’ll move with you
And I could spend the rest of my life by your side
It’s you that I’ve found

Oh I know there’s not much longer now
Oh if the world would just slow down

5. Cherry Tree

Let me fall right down into you,
You’re my cherry tree, my honeybee

And we could take a swim deep down
Inside of your soul
Where the peaches grow

And when the nighttime comes
Baby it’s all right
We can take our time

And just as the stars have taken over now
Let them shine on out
Let them shine on out

Lose yourself in my dreams tonight
I can find you now
I can find you now

Cuz you’re the one I love

And you’ve got the moves that make me want to dance and sing

Let me fall right down into you,
You’re my cherry tree, my honeybe

6. Long Lost

The midnight sun
like water through my eyes
falling arms in grace
I know it’s hard to say

Wake up still drunk
Smoke falling from your lips
The waterfall take it in,
The heart is warm

And you’ve got a way with words,
and my brain it hurts,
why don’t you take the road ahead

Ooh I have found
looking in stop and start the tape again
time is surely slowing down
lifted in cruising through

Oh my grey
You’ve taken to the sky
Losing hearts and minds
Let it rain

Walking still,
still have long to wait,
here just the other day
I am you

Ooh I have found
looking in stop and start the tape again
time is surely slowing down
lifted in cruising through

8. Steer Clear

Here we are these words that we’re writing on the wall
And they move with us and we fade and then we fall
Ooh what did I do? What did I do?
And we’re all, we’re all gone

Yea come along with me
Yea up in that old tree
Yea take a toke or two
Yea and my troubles too

Here we are these words that we’re writing on the wall
And they move with us and we fade and then we fall
Ooh what did I do? What the fuck did I do?
And we’re all, we’re all gone

Yea come along with me
Yea up in that old tree
Yea smoke a joint or two
Yea and my troubles too

9. Sweet and Clean

The sun swims up from the bottom of the sea, off to the east, 
I could feel your smile coming back to me, 
lay down on me

You fell like a leaf from that tree, into my arms
what came to be, a taste so sweet, 
loving so easy

Taking the long way out of the woods, 
a dirty man told that unhappy news
That everyone we thought we knew was older.

You lifted me high as high can be, and truth be told,
 I never thought I could leave, fruit from that tree,
Turned bitter and sweet

But if love is a game, you play it heavier than me, 
We left that fruit be, till it rot from the tree, 
a long fall into dead leaves

So I’ll lie in you one more time, 
you can tear me down and build me a shrine,
Cold waves bite down, sweet and clean

11. Summer Dreams

Here we go again
in summer dreams we find
In all our wasted time
now I know

Simple now
been lost at sea for a while
Meet the sun, meet the sand, meet the water

Lets get lost again
rolling tether tide
world of the waves
Washing over me

Lifted trees
city lights below me
but I know it is not too far to fall

Into your arms
the sky is only waiting
For her chance to whisper we are one

Ohh and I watch you as you turn
red and purple suns
Ohhh I sing you to the clouds
have you found me now? 

12. far thought

All these thoughts getting in the way
of the love that my heart it used to say
As we put all a side, moments soon they die
growing close, and falling far

The one love it all goes on
And I’m trying to prove that dirty man wrong
Down into this routine we fall
Fighting the good fight, singing your songs

All these thoughts getting in the way
of the love that my heart used to say
but I cannot lie, it just don’t feel right
Growing close, and falling far
Think its time to say goodbye
Yes it's time
