Track Name: Saints and Poets
Saints and poets, they know it
Maybe the neighbor does too
Who’s to say
Who’s to see
The only one I know for sure is me

Senses stirring, eyes blurring
None understand why you speed
Too much sight never known
I’m blinded by the thought of you alone

Waited twenty years before I could breathe in
Here’s a kind of love that I can believe in
Waited all my life before I could see
A boy as beautiful as thee

Saints and poets, don’t know it
Chapters beriddled in rhyme
Author please, answer me
If those I love will always be with me

Waited twenty years before I could breathe in
Here’s a kind of love that I can believe in
Waited all my life before I could see
A boy as beautiful as thee

Time forgets me, I let me
Memories get lost every hour
What’s the point? I’m carefree
Someone to keep this moment close to me
Track Name: Love Rest
How to weigh a soul swimming upstream?
Are there angels listening?
What am I to do?
I’m still in love with you.

If I told the truth you may be gone.
Painfully, I’d carry on.
Buried by the sea
Love rest in easy peace

He is all I’ve waited for
A love I cannot leave
Let us be

Fill a special chest fit for our love
With memories I’m thinking of.
Toss it out to sea.
Love rest in easy peace…

I know I must wait here on the beach
Till it’s far beyond my reach
Buried by the sea
Love rest in easy peace
Track Name: Sleepwalker
Lovely and softly
Ride on my sighs, sighs
Morning in your eyes
Darkened daylight rise
Who knew you’d be so nice?

Kiss me and whisper
Wonder and choose
This is all we do
All we need to
Carry us high
From the inside

Charming and lovely
Perfectly bright
Why
Don’t you stay the night
Taking off the lights
Oooh don’t be so polite

I sleepwalk
I apologize if I come as a surprise
Don’t find me strange
Or worry when I change
I like to go on journeys sometimes
But don’t let me stay if you can’t smile when I try to play
You’re welcome to join me, so come and enjoy me
We’ll wake up together by day
If you stay by my side I can promise you
I’ll get you home by the dawn
And you can let yourself wait
Give you time to contemplate
I know the feelings are strong
So don’t be so patient
And don’t think it over too much
Just run with me and have fun with me
I’ll give you presents and such

La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la
Charming and lovely
Nothing to lose
You play by all the rules
I like what you do
Ooh, everything you do

Lucky and lovely
I think I might
Spy something in your eyes
Darkened daylight rise
Who knew you’d be so nice?

Kiss me and whisper
Wonder and choose
This is all we do
All we need to carry us high
From the inside

Charming and lovely
Perfectly bright
Why don’t you play the night?
Taking off the lights
Who knew you’d be so nice?
Track Name: Wait Silently
I will wait
Silently
And take my time
Because true love can come quietly
Sneaking by

How long must I wait?
Is my lover running late?
Lonely I am, but happy I’ll be
When I find the one for me

I’ve been told that love will come and go
So if it ever comes let me know
Until that time I’ll wait silently
Listening carefully, quietly

If you whisper my name I hope I hear you
So if you ever do I hope that I’m near you
For when the moment comes and my lost and lonely heart succumbs
I’ll be thankful I waited silently
Listening carefully, quietly

If you whisper my name I hope I hear you
So if you ever do I hope that I’m near you
Speak softly to my soul, till it stirs out of control
And there you’ll be
Waiting for me
Silently, perfectly

If you whisper my name I hope I hear you
So if you ever do I hope that I’m near you
Speak softly to my soul, till it stirs out of control
And there you’ll be
Waiting for me
Silently, perfectly
Track Name: Iris
Must you treat me this way?
You filled up my bouquet
Then made me throw it away
And why would you need me to thrive?
In the coldest weather
You can survive

Am I right in thinking you’re gone?
I’m still in disbelief our season was oh, so brief
God knows, you’re not my true love.
So why am I so blue and missing you, love?

Some of the flowers we’ve planted have bloomed
Give me a sign I can’t wait or assume
How could you need me then leave me behind
Empty and losing my mind?

I wasn’t always so good
I took your love for granted cause I thought that I could
And it grew in a strange, crazy place
The iris can’t change climates
Not at this pace

What a twist in our little tale
You led me in the woods
Then left me ‘lone on the trail.
And I was always on top
I tell myself the distance is what made you stop.

Some of the flowers we’ve planted have bloomed
Give me a sign I can’t wait or assume
How could you need me then leave me behind
Empty and losing my mind?
Track Name: Exit Strategy
Love’s a blessing
And a test
I’m a mess
And you deserve the best
I wish that love were fair
And I’d be always there
But you should know I’m scared

Please don’t leave me like you could
Though you should
I’m nice but I’m not good
I’d give you all I can
If I could love one man
But I’ve got no such plan.

I warn my heart is growing weary by the day
I wish a simple love were clearly on its way
I’ve done so much wrong, and dealt so much pain
Stringing them along and lengthening the chain

So off I’ll wander to the cold
Life untold
A stranger growing old
Cause I can’t see ahead
The life I never led
So how am I to know
If I should stay or go
And I may never change
But I hope I do some day
