Skate 04:34
I saw the lights and they were shimmering Just like they were when we were small Before we knew that you were leaving You stood there outside, you were so tall You were a loner in the driveway Riding away in an old U-Haul You were our daddy, you were our hero Our eyes were welling up like ponds We could go skating straight across them We could go skating to the great beyond To the great beyond A man's got a right to be protected A woman's got a right to be protected A girl's got a right to be protected A boy's got a right to be protected To be protected

Crown 04:27
You wear it like a crown Even when standing upside down In an open field, on a forest floor You don't need your head Your head anymore Rain is pounding, pounding down Bouncing off your, off your crown Quicksilver sound, deep in the ground Quicksilver sound, deep in the ground Your wound is your crown Your wound is your crown

Sycamore 05:02
I walk in the wintertime, I walk in the wintertime Steadily remembering the way, steadily recollecting the way I feel sorry for what happened I feel sorry you lost face Ah, let go that last possession Ah, let go your place Every day is a resurrection The way a sycamore sheds its bark Do you wanna savor the connection Or do you wanna lie here in the dark, forever? There you are recreating The storms that blow sycamores down Are you the wind, are you the weather Are you a seizing in the ground, my brother? Do you wanna walk in the wintertime Do you wanna walk in the wintertime Steadily remembering the way Steadily recollecting the way

Swan Dive 03:51
I saw you dive, I saw you dive I saw you dive, I saw you dive Swan dive I saw you glide, I saw you glide I saw you glide, I saw you glide Swan glide I watched you float against the sky I saw you leave me, leave me behind Swan fly

Yellow Sands 06:43
Come unto these Yellow Sands And then take hands Curtsied when you have and kissed The white waves' whist Foot it featly here and there And sweet sprites bear the burthen Hark, Hark The watchdogs bark.....

Perseids 03:08
May the rhythms of change sustain you And the mercy of the forces that be May the sounds of the evening console you And bind us always, you to me As the summertime light is turning Venus and Jupiter rise above Let the autumn as it lays it leaves down Sing of a perfect love May the rhythms of change sustain you And the mercy of the forces that be May the moon and the tides together Keep you forever connected to me And whatever I said that sounded Like I didn't really care May the hard edges all be rounded And I will be right there May the rhythms of change sustain you And the mercy of the forces that be May the sounds of the evening console you And bind us always, you to me And you really won't have to wonder When you walk beneath the stars above I'll be whispering to you, remember We have a perfect love

You won't stop to look around You won't miss the feel of ground Know your soul's pure as the sound Of water all around As the ship goes down Never miss a breath of air Won't have to deal with questions there As the world bemoans our dying You will shake your head and sighing Watch the ship go down The water calls, can't you feel it When darkness falls, you can't conceal it Share your pictures with the world We'll die with every sail unfurled As the ship goes down
