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

The Woods 04:31
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

Defeat 04:18
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

Simple Frame 03:28
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
