Track Name: Stepping Stone
Cherry tree cover me here 'cos I'm
a maple leaf headed for a better time
You know, you know, you know
You know, you know, you know
Busy busy bee, won't you comfort me
it got easy easily so I'm setting free
You know, you know, you know
You know, you know, you know

Oh a stepping stone
Oh we'll get you home
Oh the open road
Oh we'll get you home

Ladybee, look at me on my way
It's a good, good timing for a better day
You know, you know, you know
You know, you know, you know
Busy busy bee are you proud of me
I don't need to need it, see, and that's all I say
You know, you know, you know
You know, you know, you know

Oh a stepping stone
Oh we'll get you home
Oh the open road
Oh we'll get you home
Track Name: Lost and Found
I was a fool
I was young and confused and I fell for you
You sang along to my favorite songs,
yeah what could I do?

This love, love, love
It's just enough
This love, love, love, love

You were a child, you were reckless and wild,
Yeah how could I know
We're black versus white, we do nothing but fight
But how strong we grow

This love, love, love
It's just enough
This love, love, love, love


Lost and found, and found
Never meant to be, still we'll stick around
For now, for now
Lost and found, and found
We're the perfect fit, but we're inside out
in love
It's just enough
This love, love, love, love

Time to confess it's as good as it gets, it'll have to do
But we'll just admit we're not calling it quits when the others do

This love, love, love
It's just enough
This love, love, love, love

Lost and found, and found
Never meant to be, still we'll stick around
For now, for now
Lost and found, and found
We're the perfect fit, but we're inside out
in love
It's just enough
This love, love, love, love
Track Name: Sea and the Storm
I heard it took an hour
For the river to dry oh river to dry oh
Mother sun has got the flowers
Staring straight to the sky, oh straight to the sky

Starwatchers in the towers
For the moment she sets, oh moment she sets, oh
And father moon has got the power
Just to let us forget oh let us forget

The sea and the storm
The ship that we're on
Whip the waves up and pray for sun
The sea and the storm
To pull us under
The wind on our hair
The light of the flare
For a moment there's not a care oh
Now I know
Finders Keepers

Digging deep into the cool ground
And we never looked back, no never looked back oh
Show the stars above what we found
And we'll never go back, no never go back oh
Took the treasure to the lighthouse
And we gave it all back oh gave it all back oh
That's the day they turned the light out
And they'll never go back no, never go back

The sea and the storm
The ship that we're on
Whip the waves up and pray for sun
The sea and the storm
To pull us under
The wind on our hair
The light of the flare
For a moment there's not a care oh
Now I know
Finders Keepers
Track Name: Again and Again
Lets go down the road less travelled
Pack your bags we'll leave tonight
You know
We'll go go

Catch a bus down to the river
Swim our way down to the sea
You know
We'll go

Again and again and again
Oh oh
Again and again and again
Oh oh

We'll meet a fisherman who'll get us to Michigan
Drink coffee with cinnamon, play theremins and drums
You know
We'll go

Kidnapped by pirates we'll fight them, they'll hire us
The seven seas, checked handkerchiefs and whiskey and rum
You know
We'll go

Again and again and again
Oh oh
Again and again and again
Oh oh

Where we go we go at night
I can't wait to close my eyes
Worlds unfold from dark disguises
I can do it
all I see is mountaintops
Climbing high to reach the stars
Morning comes and breaks the charm
But only for a day

Sail to the riverbed
and we'll get back into bed
Tomorrow night I'll meet you
out traveling again

you know
we'll go

Again and again and again
Oh oh
Again and again and again
Oh oh
Track Name: Change Time
Jump to the beat of the kickdrum pounding
Here on the ground there's a new beat sounding
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I love a boy loves a girl loves me
We three believe in company
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Money, money tree don't you grow for me
I'd better better build my own dam, see
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Run, run away, run a mile, run free
We're happy to be all that we can be
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

But oh…
Change, Change time
Change, Change time

I caught a fish and the fish caught me
Now he lives in the yard in a private sea
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I took to the ride to the other side
Fell in love with a boy now I am his bride
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh


But oh…
Change, Change time
Change, Change time
Track Name: You Do
Right right as rain
Some may say
We will wake two persons changed
Oh changed
Oh changed

White white as snow
Left our hopes
On the pillow where we lay we lay we lay

Starboard till circles made
You use the time to wade
You do oh oh

Cold cold as ice
My advice
Left the wreck of me behind behind behind

Warm warm is you
Calm and true
Fight these winds of change with ruth
You do oh oh

Rain falls in southern states
But you choose to sit and stay
You do oh oh
Track Name: 405
Was it mid november?
Did you bloom in spring?
Are you like a flower
Neverlasting thing

Oh oh oh

Is it like a petal
Is it soft as you
Now we're made of metal
Born for something new

Oh oh oh 2X

oh Free-way fog on the 405
If it's good as yours it's as good as mine

Follow down the harbour
Cast the boat off shore
In our blinking armour
Be around now more

Was it mid september
Did you bloom in spring
Are you like a flower
Everlasting thing

Oh oh oh 2x

oh Free-way fog on the 405
If it's good as yours it's as good as mine
Track Name: All the King's Horses
I will find my own way home
through obstacles of sticks and stones

Grinding down the beaten track
in and old and busted caddilac

Oh oh oh you know oh oh that
all the kings horses all the kings men couldn't

Oh oh oh you know oh oh that
all the kings horses all the kings men couldn't
keep me back from

Home

Cross that old familiar porch
Walk in through those safe house doors

We'll huddle up before the fire
Telling tales till we get tired

Oh oh oh you know oh oh that
all the kings horses all the kings men couldn't

Oh oh oh you know oh oh that
all the kings horses all the kings men couldn't
keep me back from

Listen here my honeybee, you're as home as home can be to me
Ticket lines and taxicabs, anything for you my friend
Track Name: Mister Carpenter
Hey mister carpenter,
Carve another heart to be my guide
'cos I had a lover once, but that lover pushed my heart aside

And I don't know if I can do this on my own
On my own

Hey mister sorcerer
brew this child a potion to be free
he's got his hold on her
dreaming of a love that cannot be

And I don't know if I can do this on my own
On my own

Hey mister carpenter
Carve a face for me to hide behind
I had a lover once, but that lover pushed my heart aside

And I don't know if I can do this on my own
On my own
Track Name: Forgive Me
I know I let you down
I didn't see what I see now
My head was in the clouds
and you watched from the ground

Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive my mistakes
Forgive me
Forgive me
I was blind, I was blind

I didn't think you cared
I didn't see how much we shared
I left and you moved on
But somehow it was never gone

Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive my mistakes
Forgive me
Forgive me
I was blind, I was blind
Track Name: 20 Years
Early in the morning the feeling starts
Tell me I'm all grown and I've come so far
But I don't feel the wiser since last we talked

Searched between the cars in the parking lot
Tried to play a part that I know I'm not
Early in deciding, but late to start

Twenty years twenty years
Should I care why I'm here
Twenty years

I can't help but thinking of the days to come
Will I choose the right ways before the wrong?
Will I bend my knees or will I stand strong?

Does it pass as quickly as people say?
Will I find my bones to be weak one day?
Will I feel assured will I feel afraid?

Twenty years twenty years
Should I care why I'm here
Twenty years
Track Name: Where the Light Goes
I'll go where the light goes when candle flames go out
No one dear can follow, but I won't have a doubt
Though you may miss moments like this one dear,
Have no fear
I'll be around keeping your feet on the ground
And I've found

Keep me in your heart, child
You know that's where I'll stay
It might be a long while
But take it day by day

Don't shed a tear or fear for me, hear this truth
Everybody knows
This is the way all of us walk one day
Our last day

So when you are lonely
And I have gone away
Think of what I've told you
May it help you through your days
