Track Name: Salt, Pepper, Cinnamon
Salt, pepper, cinnamon
Can you feel the state I’m in?
Wrapped within the ocean breeze
Wrapped around moonlit trees
You ripple, sway, slide, and slope
Teaching my soul how to cope
In your soft, submerging way
Mating with blue and grey

I rest my head upon your skin, tired and overcome
You hold my frame and heat my core, beams stolen from the sun
An infiltrated stay.
Grain by grain, each prismed speck
Bedding down within this wreck
To stay

I will carry you
Each dream left to name
And you will speak to the wind
From where and when we came

Salt, pepper, cinnamon
Can you feel the state I’m in?
Wrapped within the tides that flow
Wrapped around these things you know
Track Name: The Woods
Sit here and wait for awhile, and let me absorb your smile
You see, I've been fighting for so long and I'm not sure where I belong
So stay, and hold me now
So stay

These limbs have their way with me
They sway in the dark, you see
So sweetly they sing to my soul but I must learn to stay their pull
and keep on this road up ahead
I've got to keep on this road up ahead

The woods so lovely dark and deep but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I can sleep
And miles to go before I can sleep

How can we leave when tempted just to stay?
How can you lead me out when you just want to play?
A pendulum of choices swing, oh help me learn to do this thing
and keep on this road up ahead
I've got to keep on this road up ahead

The woods so lovely dark and deep but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I can sleep
And miles to go before I can sleep
Track Name: Defeat
My heart string's hooked around your fingers
Looped all around your thumb
Wound about every knuckle
I come unraveled, i am undone

What is this I've come to know?
A reticent heat
I fear there is no treading backwards
I've met my defeat

I try to regain every thread and put it in it's place
They keep slipping through my fingers
at every knowing look upon your face

What is this I've come to know?
A reticent heat
I fear there is no treading backwards
I've met my defeat

Such feeling meets with every atom every stitch in my skin
I have so little strength to tether this yearning to my whim

What is this I've come to know?
A reticent heat
I fear there is no treading backwards
I've met my defeat
Track Name: Simple Frame
The Sun was dim, she needed more rays
so she gathered near to absorb your gaze
The Rain was too dry for the skin
so she soaked in your lyrics ’til drenched within.
The Wind she wallowed and fell to the floor
’til your strong arms hoisted and launched her once more.

The Earth she trembled and cracked at her crust
’til you spoke kind words, instilling trust
The Sea didn’t dance or crash on the shore
’til you rocked her close, she felt rhythm once more
The Sky was barren, absent of light
’til you kissed her with starlight and moonlit midnight

This simple frame can be so much more, so much more, so much more
When you shine a little love down to my core, to my core
