Track Name: Go Out and Make Some
I'm taking the car gonna pick up my man
Howling for love like a hungry cat 
Eye patch, soul patch, one well-placed tattoo 
We'll drive to Mexico kick off our shoes  

We've written the sad song already
the wound has been worried and then some
how do you get love to survive?
Gotta just go out and make some

New moon on the horizon, waves breaking at dawn 
He'll rock me on the water, sing me like a song
Gonna feel like we're breaking laws, gonna think we've gone mad
Yeah sometimes what feels so good, might look a little bad

We've written the sad song already
the wound has been worried and then some
how do you get love to survive?
Gotta just go out and make some

Gonna go to Mexico, gonna drive til dawn
Listen to Calexico, Ringo, Paul and John.
Make ourselves a lean-to, some place lying on the beach,
Hold each other close at night, never out of reach

What was it the begger said as he passed us in the town?
"Don't pick and choose til evening, take it all right now."
Revving of the engine, rushing of the wind,
only my captain and I can tell you where we've been

We've written the sad song already
the wound has been worried and then some
how do you get love to survive?
Gotta just go out and make some

Gonna go to Mexico, gonna drive til dawn
Listen to Calexico, Ringo, George and John.
Make ourselves a lean-to, some place lying on the beach,
Hold each other close at night, never out of reach
Track Name: Be Kind
I check the mail, I watch the seasons change
Children grow up and move on lives like furniture we rearrange
Kings and queen face another pawn, gentle hand deer and fawn
be kind, be kind, just be kind

I thought it would be easy to go on
To put the past behind and away
But I can’t put enough miles between us
Some love can’t be held at bay
Be kind, be kind, just be kind

An island a mountain a foreign country
My chest gets tight at the thought
That language you're speaking, teach me
How do you say, be kind? Be kind

No letters comes from a closed heart, no fire can start without a spark
Resistance and persistence, shine a light into this dark
You know we're writing this story, how do you say, be kind?

An island a mountain a foreign country
My chest gets tight at the thought
That language you're speaking, tell mee
How do you say, be kind? just be kind
Track Name: Wolf Birds
Wolf birds, black as the night
Iridescent in a certain light
Calling and cackling in this blue blue sky
I'm watching them fly

Lying in the driveway, flat on my back
Laughing voice, recognizing eye
Watch and watch as everything goes by

We used to do this together
Counting birds in any kind of weather
Lightning storm, mountain bred
So much taken for granted, dark thoughts a thunderhead

Now its just wing beats, not so different than a hearts
Overhead in the sky watch the clouds part
Laughing voice, recognizing eye
Watch and watch as everything goes by

Wolf birds, black as the night
Truth is iridescent in a certain light
Watch as it changes purple, blue to white
Wolf birds, black as the night, iridescent
Track Name: Going Doing
Remember when you were a little kid?
You could just show up at the door
Bounce a red ball with your friend
All the way to the corner store
Two-cent candies , jolly rancher and big red
Fishing by the creek, rainbow trout and steel head

What are you doing?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?
Where are you going?
Who goes with you?

All this time just went by, water under the bridge
It's not that easy, when two become unhinged
I might call you up, get you on the phone
But I don't think you'll answer, even if you're home alone

What are you doing?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?
Where are you going?
Who are you doing?
I hope its good

Go down to the beach, throw stones into the ocean
Make a dress out of seaweed, superstitious devotion

We have a story equal and opposite
Are you still staring into space
Can you let go of it?

What are you doing?
Where are you going?
What are you doing?
Where are you going?
Who are you doing?
I hope its good
Track Name: Sadhu
You gave it up, walked away from it all
Answered a call only you could hear
So vast and so near, nothing on your feet
a world beyond a world

You're so far away what you see no one can say

You gave it up, the ledger and the book,
The toll it all took you kept walking on,
Holy man orange, you were not alone
Following along, the river called you in

You're so far away, what you see, no one can say

You gave it up, for a thread and a clue
White hair divine prayer, some unknown test,
Only you know the answers to,
Your eyes glowing, some inner knowing

You gave it up, walked away from it all,
Answered a call, only you could hear,
So vast and so near, beyond you’re worldly past,
Abandoned shoes , into a new day

you're so far away, what you see , no on can say

A few strips of cloth, a price it did cost,
A price you were glad to pay
A wordless song, known by the river

You gave it up, answered a call, only you could hear
Track Name: Congratulations
Congratulations on being alive
Yes everyone deserves an award
For making it this far after the rip chord pulled

Pulled out of the free fall
Said hello and welcome to it all
Fried eggs, downward dog, jazz on the radio

Congratulations on being alive
You didn't take that long dive
And here you are, here we are, we survived

The waiter is whistling in time, home cooking don't you know
I carry extra napkins at times like this
When no one is paying attention and I’ve made a mess

Congratulations on being alive
You didn't take that swan dive
And here you are, here we are, we're alive

The TV has poor reception
Just a lot of black and white buzz
Try to focus on something though your hearts abuzz

Keep the candles burning, but be careful for the stove
Walk me under the trees of Stern Grove

Congratulations on being alive
You didn't take that long dive
And here you are, here we are, we're alive
Track Name: Ajax Cafe
They have a table but I'm happy here, minding my own time
Old album covers, Linda and Emmy Lou, fine red wine

Seems everybody wants a booking or a job, there's always someone new to the game
Her name is Kristen, she's the owner here, she'll decide if you get a day

Send another shot to the band
God knows they need a drink
Pay the waiter when you’re ready
So much harder than you think

You may need more than one religion, music, prayer or bourbon
So many things to get you through, in and around the whole hullabaloo

So send another shot to the band
God knows they need a drink
Pay the waiter when you’re ready
It’s not as easy as you think

Desperado are you listening
Love is a rose with thorns

So send another shot to the band
God knows they need a drink
Pay the waiter when you’re ready
It’s not as easy as you think
Track Name: Another Mile
There's a space in my heart, I don't know I'll let you in
Take a part, bit or leading, oh where to even begin

Won't you walk, walk with me, walk with me, another mile
Watch the stars in the sky, wander a little while

And then there's that mile of the crow
Flying lazy kind of low, laughing at the dark dark night
Views our worries in a different light

Won't you walk, walk with me, walk with me, another mile
Watch the stars in the sky, light up a couple smiles

Hard to know where to go this far down ours dusty roads/
So many flyways, so many byways, so many ways, to know
But a mile can, a mile can be long, or it can go by in a flash
So walk with me, let's go see, if we can fly at last

Walk with me, walk with me, walk with me another mile
Watch the stars in the sky, light up a couple smiles
Track Name: Yes Baby
Sit down at the table push the food around the plate
He’s coming up the driveway , lady don't you stay out too late
Oh yes baby yes baby please, yes baby yes baby please

Wearing your pretty wrap skirt, orange and yellow bird of paradise
Bares arms, some leg, your hair fixed up extra nice
Oh yes baby yes baby please, yes baby yes baby please

Gonna ride shotgun with her baby,gotta hand upon her tan knee
Put the top down, hair flying in the breeze
Oh yes baby yes baby please

Bob Marley, beer and a coke such a fine day for the beach
Sea salt skin ripe as a summer peach
Oh yes baby yes baby please, yes baby yes baby please

Shes a little hungry, she can use a little snack
If she rolls over so, will you scratch her back?
Oh yes baby yes baby please, yes baby yes baby please

They may get your order wrong but you’ll still eat it all
Lick the butter off your fingers, smile as you fall
Oh yes baby yes baby please, yes baby yes baby please
Track Name: Hope
Only 44 days till spring but it's only rained a little bit
There's more water in my tears falling in a puddle where I sit
I planted daffodils in the fall a row of tulips too
But cactus may have been better, love gets prickly it's true

Hope is a choice, let's choose it
Hopes a chance, don't lose it
Hope we make it through it, this time

Only 136 days till summer but already the sun is bright
Glinting off the crashing waves, glaring on all I want to put right

Hope is a choice, let's choose it
Hopes a chance, don't lose it
Hope we make it through it, this time

Only 228 days till fall, when we can harvest all we've sowed
Best we plant a row of love and attention, dust off our promises and vows

Hope is a choice, let's choose it
Hopes a chance, don't lose it
Hope we make it through it, this time
Track Name: LPT
Little pink toes, you never know, how far you’ll go, when she’s got pink toes
Walking in the sand, she’s so hip, gonna leave a trail of some sweet catnip
Captain Jack, he’s so bad, had to walk the plank, now she’s feeling sad
Little pink toes, little pink toes, little pink toes, on my kitty cat

Follow your nose, follow your heart, follow your toes, back to the start
Captain Jack, going for a swim, splishing and splashing, he’s gonna win
Little pink toes, little pink toes, little pink toes, prowling the beach, for her Jack man
Little pink toes, little pink toes, little pink toes, on my kitty cat

Capn Jack, swam from the reef, now he’s sitting on the sand, smoking catnip spleef
Little pink toes on the cat, padding in the sand, toward Captain Jack
She’s so sweet, she’s so fine, little pink toes, there all mine
Little pink toes, little pink toes, little pink toes, on the kitty cat
