Different Stars Are you waiting for different stars to arrive Are you waiting for a different map in the sky To chart your life Are you waiting for an epic journey or a new satori or a love story To save your life To take your time To make it right Are you waiting Are you waiting What are you waiting for Are you wanting What are you wanting more Born at the wrong time Born on the far side The long tide of the earth’s divide Are you waiting for your life to arrive Are you waiting for your life to arrive Or are you waiting for your next life to rise Are you waiting for a trick of night Are you waiting for a twist of plight To mark your life Are you waiting for a soul dream or a loud scream or a new machine To make your life To chart your time To do what’s right Are you waiting Are you waiting What are you waiting for Are you wanting What are you wanting more Born on the landslide Born at the end of time The narrow ledge of this soul’s decline Are you waiting for your life to arrive Are you waiting for your life to arrive Or are you waiting for your next life to rise

Two Wheel 01:43
Two Wheel The whole world is changing It’s not just me and you The whole world is changing There’s nothing we can do You better get on your two wheel and go girl See what you can do The earth is growing fat now It’s not just me and you The earth is growing flat now There’s not much we can do You better get on you two feet and go boy You better push right on through You better get on your two wheel and go girl See what you can do Tell me where you been now, tell me where you want to go Tell me who you seen now, and tell me who you know You better know who you know now You better know where we been now You better know where you want to go The whole world is changing It’s not just you and me The whole world is changing Who you gonna be You better get on your two wheel and go girl See what you can do You better get on you two feet and go boy You better push right on through

Light Is The Danger Light is the danger And love It might Strike lightning in your river Burn fever in your night You’re something of a quiver Something so slight But I could live forever Beneath your clean and bright Light is the danger And love It might Strike lightning in your river Burn fever in your night I’m something of a shiver My many fixed signs But still, You make me linger Still you make me kind Light is the danger And love It might Strike lightning in your river Burn fever in your night I like the way you are I like the way you are I like the way you are to me You’re something of a shiver Something so slight But I could live forever Beneath your soft and white Light is the danger And love It might Strike lightning in your river Burn fever in your night

Love Song From Far Away Watching the sky turn black and the water beneath it’s like glass On some beach from some traveler’s shack Could be anywhere really Could be anywhere really With its sand and its reef and its trash I’m thinking of you love I’m thinking of you love But I’m not looking back And I know I let you down Let you down with a crash Somewhere between here and there I lost the stash Lost everything you gave me. Broke everything you made me. I let you down, I lost the way Somewhere off the coast of somewhere getting on some plane. You are the sun. I am the moon. You stay too long. I leave too soon. I am the moon. You are the sun. You’ve just arrived. I’m already gone. I’m watching the moon turn fat against some new blue-black And the sky is changing color same as where you’re at Could be anywhere really Could be anywhere really With its stars and its wind and its cats I’m thinking of you love I’m thinking of you love But I’m not looking back I know I let you down Let you down with a bang Somewhere between here and there I lost my way Somewhere off the coast of somewhere getting on some train. You are the sun. I am the moon. You stay too long. I leave too soon. I am the moon. You are the sun. You’ve just arrived. I’m already gone. You are my harbor. You are my shore. You are my anchor. You are my floor. But sometimes the timing is just right And I meet you here Right where we belong Between the earth and the air.

you can turn your back on the river the river is not like the sea you can turn your back on the river but don't turn your back on me 'cause i've been to the canyon saw the spirit in the tree and i've been to the southland i got down on my knee you can turn your back on the river the river is not like the sea you can turn your back on the river but don't turn your back on me i’ve been to the island like a boat out at sea and i've been to the homeland i’ve seen the cost of being free you can turn your back on the river the river is not like the sea you can turn your back on the river but don't turn your back on me when you turn your back on me, baby you know you turn your back on yourself it’s just you and me in this life we don’t need nobody else with you, my baby, i’ve seen the edge of eternity it was you and me, lookin’ out over a big vast empty your hair was down, your chest was bare, you had jewels on your feet but now i know, it’s ok, we’ve got a long long way to go the river, you can sit on it’s side and watch it go by but the sea, you have to look straight in the eye the river, you can sit on it’s banks and watch it roll but beware the sea, it’s bad company, those old rogues and undertows now i’ve been to your birthplace met your kin and kissed your mom and i’ll be there on your last day at rest or on the run you can turn your back on the river the river is not like the sea you can turn your back on the river but don't turn your back on me
