Track Name: April Showers
my girl
row along with me
and all the blackbirds
spinning around your head
sing their song of rest
is there nothing left?
my girl, my girl hang on to your pearls

plant your seeds in may, they'll grow up tall and straight
put them in your hair
my girl, my girl whats wrong in your world?
my girl hold on to your pearls
and row along the bends with me
Track Name: Rites of Spring
cover up your eyes, my lady, you'll bring to mind
those dizzy summer days
Track Name: Lovebirds
let the lovebirds fall in love
row away in lily's pond
lovely songs by songbirds sung

once was a light glowing golden bright
and it leaked through my holes and my pours
came trickling down through the cracks in the floor

i drank a rotten wine
i drank a rotten wine, and it flowed through me

let the lovebirds fall in love
row away in lily's pond

the spider and the fly and the ghost in me
Track Name: No Knight Errant
the poor girl she waits, she plays with her braids
she does what she can, she pines on her plans
there’s nothing better than food on the plate
she danced all the day until the day it flew away

how long will you wait?
no knight errant. love: it leaves
so love the leaves.

who the hell am i? only in your eyes
put me aside, turn out the light.
my dear old friend we're old friends just old friends
we're all friends, all friends old friends

give us something to count - father call your lambs down

when i get myself out of this place, when i break free of all of these chains will i find you again? love left a trail of breadcrumbs for us
Track Name: Black Horses
you missed a lot of my years, thats ok
i'm still here.
broke loose and high tailed - sight see, sight see
sight see, sight seen
fall out of the tree
you found yourself
you found yourself dead and you came alive

its a sad and haunted place this fairytale life
sing songs in the silence to kil the time when is well you
wish for the night ~ carousel rides

on the black horse you'll ride against the rising tides
on the black horse you ride
you found yourself dead and you came alive

her paper windmill eyes spill secret lullabies
spin a gentle sunrise
and clear the clouds up for the daylight to shine

you found yourself dead and you came alive.
Track Name: The Gallows
Hats off to you my love
And so the time has come

Has a black cat crossed your path? I’m leaving you
I know I know I know
I owe nothing to the gallows I owe nothing at all
I owe nothing to the gallows

I’ve followed you thus far, my sword my shield my cross lay it down
Lay it down

Will you stop your throwing stones? I know you love me the best
I know you love me the best, I love you that way too
Track Name: The Wandering Fool
marry these feelings of stone and of moss
of the ivy that creeps and the ivy that crawls
such heresy pours out from your mouth hole
pale old string fingers tis tis and tic toc

the memories dilate, come rushing in
swelling
show me a clear cut path to your skin
i want to see the fruit of your carefully kept garden

farewell, so long
for right or for wrong i want to feel my blood flowing
i want to breath it in real deep
i want to feel my blood flowing
i'm gonna see the grail if it kills me

the wandering fool of ghost legs and old paths
he's digging through all the graves, he wants it back

now more than ever i need a rope
i don't need no heavy rocks
i am the beast that heaven dropped
i don't need those heavy rocks
i'm gonna see the grail if it kills
Track Name: Summer Song
Rest your head mama says sleepy little baby
Turn the nightlight on, sing a bedtime song
The sandman will come and you’ll dream all night long
Of summers to come
Of castles of stone - flowers and sticks and fields to run
Lovers to love, princes and frogs

Papa says pray instead
Else no one is gonna save you
Young one, when you’re alone with all the scary monsters
Out to get you. Come one Devil,
Young one be strong.

The summers they come the summers then gone so save your steps
and save your soul - the summers they come the summers they go))))))))))

Rest your head mama said, sleepy little baby
The summers they come. The summers they go find lovers to love while you’re still young
I know one day little girl their ghosts will dance circles around this wooden floor
I know one day little girl your ghost will dance circles around this wooden floor
I know one day little girl our ghosts will dance circles around the floor
Arm in arm in arm.
Track Name: Fallen Kings
where has my love flown? i feel
a cold, cold wind has blown
candles move in the dark, i've fallen off my throne

fancy you tonight, you alone and i
the serpent i writhe beneath your cold feet
vampires bat their eyes and show their teeth
nightmares flap their wings inside of me
i've fallen off my throne, fancy you tonight

where has my love flown? stones
for the old and aging crone - dancers
faustian rags and fast asleep
phantoms bow and rise in the house of creeks
i've fallen off my throne
Track Name: Halloween Moon
tonight will stay with me
in this old house in my green room
love under a halloween moon
in this old house in my green room

where are these happy ends?
for me? for you and me?
don't rush into apologies, no
if you do care to dance sweep a broom and hide the clues
of love under a halloween moon in my green room
in my green room

tonight will stay with me in this old house in my green room

don't rush into your fantasy whirls, but if you do take me too take me too take me too
