Track Name: Long, Long River
Long, Long River take me home
Long, Long River find a stone
Long, Long River take me home
Long, Long River build my bones

And fight the wind and you'll never have to sing
And fly the fox while you're still in your socks
And see the mountains in her eyes
It's something you will never describe

Long, Long River take me home
Long, Long River find a stone
Long, Long River take me home
Long, Long River build my bones

And brighten up this day before you go away
And shake the dust that lies on this heart of mine
So just forget her now, God knows only how
And think of a summer in her eyes as it grows out of your slumber

Long, Long River take me home
Long, Long River find a stone
Long, Long River take me home
Long, Long River build my bones
Track Name: We Breathe New Light
Things are getting so much better
The sky is much more clearer
Thinking about the wind and the waves
And how they influence our gain

Then the sun shines in your eyes
And the wind in your hair
Don't you know
We Breathe New Light

You make the sauce so much sweeter
You make the trees so much greener
Thinking about you
And how I feel about you

Then the sun shines in my eyes
Not too bright but not too dark
It reminds me
We Breathe New Light

We sigh alone for long
We sigh alone all night
We sigh alone for long
But now its better

Remember when we lived by the sea
You tried to make it as black as it could be
Well I'm sure you know that it didn't work
Cause I tell you that We Breathe New Light

We Breathe New Light

Timid skin in the wind
Track Name: Spring Finally Came
Spring Finally Came
It fell out of the morning rain
The journey is over
It started back in October

Plants can now nourish
This is the time that they flourish
Children can have fun
Under the heat of the morning sun

This is the time the foxes come out
They're in your garden please don't shout
The trees are getting so much greener
They just gleam and gleam and gleam

The days are never ending
I wish it wasn't just for lending
Curtains can come down
They'll go strait to the ground

This is the time the foxes come out
They're in your garden please don't shout
The trees are getting so much greener
They just gleam and gleam and gleam

Spring Finally Came
Track Name: I'll Tell You in a Year
Oh, is this the last time that our eyes meet?
Oh, is this the last time my heart sinks into the sand?
Oh, please don't go this year
I want to see you in the summer days

Has the sun closed his eyes?
Has the sea multiplied?
Has the bird frozen up?
Has the tree grown up
This winter?

Oh, is this the last time I see you?
Oh, is this the last time I see the wind through your hair?
Oh, is the last place I see you right here?
Or is it somewhere nice?

Has the sun closed his eyes?
Has the sea multiplied?
Has the bird frozen up?
Has the tree grown up
This winter?

Has the tree flamed and flown?
Has the sea saved and shallowed?
You sing in the mountains
You sow all the bridges
You shadow all your paintings
You save all the saviors
This summer?

Oh, I know, I know, I know
I should have been talking

Oh, I know, I know, I know
I should have been singing

Oh, I know, I know, I know
You’re gone
And I never told you this year
Track Name: A Sailboat Goes into the Night
The winds are strong, the tide is high tonight
Do you have to leave can't you wait until the sunrise?

You’re getting ready your propping up the mast
And you've got your bags and you’re going out to sea

And there's nothing left, there's nothing left I can do
But you have to leave, you have to get away

All that's left is a fading light
and A Sailboat Goes into the Night
Track Name: Fight The Wind
And now we're all inside
Cause the summer has died
But the day is young
And we can't see the sun

And now we're all depressed
Cause there's a birds nest
That has fallen off it's tree
And now its in the sea

But the winter is coming
And there's no way to stop it
So get your pots and pans
And Fight the Wind

And now we're running in the rain
Cause it's how we feel alive again
As the leaves crash down
And flood this dark ground

And now the grass is old
As we grow so very, very cold
And we're floating up to the sky
And over the light

But the winter is coming
And there's no way to stop it
So get your pots and pans
And Fight the Wind

And now the rain falls down
As it hits the ground
Now the night comes round
And the winds show their sound

And now the lights come on
As the night are Long
Now we sing a song
But we don't belong
Track Name: And Now We're Strangers Again
You can't remember
But I can't forget
Last night we were strangers
But last year we were friends

And Now We're Strangers Again
Just like last winter
But I know one day we'll meet
But today is not that day
Track Name: You've Broken My Soul
I think I can see your feet in the snow
I think I can hear your voice in the wind
I think I can see you in the leaves
And I think I can feel your hand on my back

But you're not even there

I think I can still smell your hair
But maybe I shouldn't even care
I think I can see your face in the sun
But I can see your face in everyone

But you're now even there

I have tried to forget you for the last year but I can't cause your still on my mind

I have tried to forget you for the last year but I can't cause you were so good to me

I have tried to forget you for the last year but I can't cause I have got nothing else

I will try to forget you for the last time and if I can't then I guess You Have Broken My Soul

But you're not even there

And you're not even there but you're still on my mind
And you're not even there but You've Still Broken My Soul
Track Name: Awkward Winter
I broke your nose and scared your skin
I found the sea and jumped right in
I lost your cat and scared your fox
He ran down to the slippery rocks

And now I'm swimming with you
But I cannot look back
Cause the sea is in my eyes
It dries as the sun continues to rise

I saw the bird sleep in your palm
I trapped the bee that stung your arm
I cut your hair and scratched your eye
I climbed a tree and went up high

And now I'm running with you
But I cannot look back
Cause the sun is in my eyes
Cause the boats are still asleep
Cause the trees are still green
Cause your face is still fine
It shines as the birds continue to fly

The Sun is Still Rising, Sleep Away
