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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 Hope is 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 Hope is 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 Hope is a chance, don't lose it Hope we make it through it, this time

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
