Track Name: harvester
it's a hurt hawk
restin in that tree
it's a frayed string
playin knot

it's the car's hot windshield
unforgiving
it's the home we made
with empty cots

what good is that sun
if it dont warm
you were talkin to the needle
through the barn

now it's walkin the dog
on the edge of the lake
it's this september song
that made me wake

it's a warming stove
now yer makin tea
it's the row you hoed
and grew this me
Track Name: wunderground 75057
thunderstorms possible
said the tiny screen
when i peeked at it
at 4am

we keep our windows open
we keep our
dandelions free
no storm can dislodge your seed


and you tried to say
just watch the way
i keep every raindrop in the trees
and the blanket told me, man
just ease yer head
this fort has everything you need


thunderstorms possible
said the tiny screen
then i fell to you
and sleep
Track Name: peach moon
i have pulled
this moon for you
down through all the other's dreams
into your trees

i have cradled it like a peach
freeing it from the branch
it sits in my hand like a bird

and here you are
shining through my hopeful hands
we deny
Newton in whispers
i say tomorrow has waited too long to fall


i have pulled
this moon for you
down through all the other's dreams
into your trees
Track Name: bury me standing
bury me standing
i've been on my knees too long
these boots have seen enough
enough road to take me home
and every time i wave goodbye
you can't know how i feel

with my sister in the moon
i always seem to shine
but every time i take a breath'
i can't know if it's mine

life isn't the issue here
because we live in rhyme

so bury me standing
i've been on my knees too long
these boots have seen enough
enough road to take me home
and every time i wave goodbye
you can't know how i feel
Track Name: deep
there ain't that much left to tell you
or much that you could hear
i found out where our dreams end up
they've been sleeping with my fears

and i didn't want to leave like this
all tangled up to sleep
but when your arms quit needing mine
i'd just as soon stay deep

deep
where the sunshine is cold
deep
where i don't have to wonder where you are

and now these stones around my boots
and these chains as tight as love
half a step and i'll go on for miles
you'll be there above

and when you're crossing this hard water
month by year by year
you'll wear my love like cockleburrs
in every splash my tears

deep
where i'm farthest from the stars
deep
where i don't have to wonder where you are
Track Name: row
where's the fire
what's your hurry
what do you have to bury

i think the ground's too soft
i said
i think the ground's too soft
to keep it down
to keep it down
where we were planting
Track Name: the gunslinger's creed
I do not aim with my hand
He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father
I aim with my eye

I do not shoot with my hand
He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father
I shoot with my mind

I do not kill with my gun
He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father
I kill with my heart
