Track Name: Sunshine
SUNSHINE

You are my sunshine, my sweetest sunshine,
you make me happy when skies are grey.
Please always know dear how much I love you.
Now go take this sunshine your way.

The other night dear when we were sleeping
we dreamed we held you by our side.
When we awoke dear, we were mistaken
then we both laid down and cried.

You are our sunshine, our sweetest sunshine
you make us happy when skies are grey.
Please always know dear, how much we love you.
Now go take this sunshine your way.
Track Name: Uncertain
UNCERTAIN

Fall down – take it on the chin
get back up again.

Uncertain, that’s how we came to be
that’s how you came to me.
Uncertain, I’m calling out your name
from somewhere far away.

Let down your hair
it's flying in the wind.
I’m all around you
faithful as a man.

This Life – it kicked us in the ass
come on let’s kick it back.

First step – I’m holding out my hand
faithful as a man.
Track Name: Coal Miner
COAL MINER

I’m shoveling coal into a hole
in the furnace of my heart.
This engine of old silent and cold
will fire to the light of your spark.

Blue birds they fly
in the sparkle of your eyes
(blink and they will flutter).
Girl don’t you cry
It’s going be all right
(It’s a world of wonder).

You were three days old
I was feeling so bold
I held your little heart next to mine.
And when you would go I’d hope that you’d know
the sound of that big drum of mine.

Blue birds they fly
in the sparkle of your eyes
(blink and they will flutter).
Girl don’t you cry
It’s going be all right
(It’s a world of wonder).

It’s going to be all right
Track Name: To Find You
TO FIND YOU

As you lie down for your nap
I’m sailing on a ferryboat to find you
I’ve got your tricycle in back
and all the little books you love to have read to you.

And as your eyes look up from sleep
I’ll be smiling down at you my little wonder
I’ll kiss you on the cheek
and make you laugh the way I always do.

And I’ll take what I can get
to give all I can give for you my wonder girl
And every moment that we live
together in this storybook feels never ending

And as you move so far away
I think about you every passing hour
I’ll drive across the state
just to find you my love

And I’ll take what I can get
to give all I can give for you my wonder girl
And every moment that we live
together in this storybook feels never ending
Track Name: Even Now
EVEN NOW

Night shines
through the window
where the moon paints the wall
I find you sleeping
like branches of trees after the fall
and the wind it blows through the curtains
whispering hope in a voice yet so small

And even now
as you lie still
sorrow hides
'neath a dam of self will
that would flow effortlessly
to the ground

Long cries
as a woman
with a barren womb
I try to be faithful
to the promise of an empty tomb

Even now
as you lie still
sorrow hides
'neath a dam of self will
that would flow effortlessly to the ground
from your head – to your heart – in a whelm where we drown
from your head - to your heart - through your arms – into mine
Track Name: The Mulberry Bird
THE MULBERRY BIRD

High
above the sea
a lone bird doth sing
“Perchickeree”

A lamentation sweet
she made a nest in the mulberry tree
in wind and storm it would not keep
“Perchickeree”

And for you
she gave the hardest part
a nest for you that would not fall apart
A pair of two that swore to guard your little heart
a gift for you – she gave the hardest part
Track Name: Beloved
BELOVED

We drove home
through the trees,
the moon played with you
in hide and seek.

And you laughed, and you laughed, and you laughed,
playful and free.
And it felt just like the first time –
like family.

Oregon stars shine down like northern lights
illuminate the wind of road
we drive.

And we’ve cried, and we’ve cried,
for such a long time,
and feels like for the first time
it’s going to be alright.
Our beloved
Track Name: Sleep
SLEEP

Go to sleep, go to sleep
my little Maliyah
Go to sleep, go to sleep
my beautiful girl
You are everything I love
in this big, bright, new world.
Go to sleep, go to sleep,
my beautiful girl
