Track Name: oriole
The Oriole Oracle

On the first day of the year
Walk upon a sunny morning
All ahead is looking clear
Details forming
Wild, the bells were ringing out
Birds in congregation
Gather high up in the winter wood
Glow like the wings of the oriole,
As it sits so high up in the tree now
Don’t be afraid on this brand new day
You’ve a bright little creature calling out to you,
"Dah dah dee dah dah dee dah dah doo
I’ll follow you, oh follow back to the sun"
And we all go down to the lane to see
What the little orange bird has done
Ooo, ooo, watching you watching me run along
Ooo, ooo, watching you watching me run along
We will, we will fly with the oriole
We will, we will fly with the oriole ....
Glow like the wings of the oriole,
As it sits so high up in the tree now
Don’t be afraid on this brand new day
You’ve a bright little creature calling out to you,
"Dah dah dee dah dah dee dah dah doo
I’ll follow you, oh follow back to the sun"
And we all go down to the lane to see
What the little orange bird has done
What the little orange bird has done
We will, we will fly with the oriole
We will, we will fly with the oriole
Ooo, ooo, watching you watching me run along
Ooo, ooo, watching you watching me run along
We will, we will fly with the oriole
Track Name: a lamb in soft grass
A Lamb in Soft Grass

Do you feel alone? 
Do you feel alone?

No need to worry coz you've a home

In the grass with the other little lambs around you.

So soft and green,

So soft and green,

The loveliest home you've ever seen

Look around there’s another little lamb beside you

Ahhhh, do do doo
Ahhhh, do do doo

There is a hill

There is a hill

Climb to the top of it if you will

With the other little lamb beside you.
Did you lose your mind?
Did you lose your mind?
No need to worry coz you will find
It’s the same with the other little lambs around you

Ahhhh, do do doo
Ahhhh, do do doo
Over the edge, over the edge
Do we all end up in the forest?
Or over the edge, over the edge
To the funny farm?
Over the edge, over the edge
Do we all end up in the forest?
Or over the edge, over the edge
To the funny farm?
And if you find yourself wondering
While you’re wandering
It won’t be long
And if you find yourself wondering
While you’re wandering
Just sing along
Do you know the song?

Do you know the song?

It’s a lullaby, not too long.

It goes:…
Track Name: astronomy now
Astronomy Now

Folks might gaze at a miniature screen
In games where people kill and die
But my love he cranes his neck in the dark
And he gazes up into the sky.
People today might worry or say
Things are too late or too soon
But my love is pleased when the sun is just right
And it lights up the face of the moon
Astronomy now x2
The dark side, the far side that we never see
We see the craters and scars
When folks complain that life is a curse
He smiles at the moon and the stars
Your whole life, you look up at the sky
And wonder ‘bout the things spinning round
But then you take a class in astronomy and
You see the universe from the ground
Astronomy now x4
Venus, Cassiopeia, Sagittarius, the phase of the moon
Seasons, Andromeda, Mars could be anywhere,
Different angles of sun
Venus, Cassiopeia, Sagittarius, the phase of the moon
Seasons, Andromeda, Mars could be anywhere,
Different angles of sun
Track Name: darkness has wings
Seeing in the Dark

cold without the fire
brightness the liar
your pathway through (in the night)
only black on blue
reach out, if you can, through the dark
search every valley
go deep and connect to your ground
hidden in mountains
collect and connect every sound
circle around
a night without the moon
new sight come soon
reach out, if you can, through the dark
search every valley
go deep and connect to your ground
hidden in mountains
collect and connect every sound
circle around
darkness has wings
to let me in
Track Name: daytime stars
Daytime Stars

They came from a valley far away
Across a ridge on a windy day
And settled down where the aspen glow
The clouds, they were moving very fast
The breaks of blue were here at last
So far from home, the world they knew
La da dee ….
And it shows amid the forest changing color in the wind
It’s like the lake is a little screen, down below
Daytime stars sparkle in between,
And they shine…..the light is alive.
And they were caught between the clouds
And the wind sang out so loud
So it became the soundtrack for the day
And as they watched, the world moved on
Leaves were shining then the light was gone
The shadows came, but all was calm
La da dee ….
And it shows amid the forest changing color in
the wind
It’s like the lake is a little screen, down below
Daytime stars sparkle in between,
And they shine…..the light is alive.
And they shine…..the light is alive.
Ooo and this mountain world makes sense to the mind
Not like the other world you’ll find
They returned to a valley far away
Across a ridge on a windy day
Track Name: listen to the moon in the rain
Listen to the Moon in the Rain

{We are the sun}
Seasons different from each other
Flowing into one another again
Listen to the moon in the rain
Some will fear and some will follow
It’s ok it’s alright,
We are one, we are the sun
Feeling fear, a frantic calling
All I want’s that sense of belonging to stay
Listen to the moon in the rain
See the views from different angles
First tracks through a riverbed in the snow
Wandering the canyon below
It’s ok it’s alright
We are one, we are the sun
Don’t you know it’s alright
We are one, we are the sun
All the while we’re spinning in the sky,
A memory in the sky
It’s ok it’s alright
We are one, we are the sun
Don’t you know it’s alright
We are one, we are the sun
Track Name: faraway
Faraway

Just one voice in the womb
You’ll find the other songbirds flying soon
The lines and marks you make
Will somehow magically translate the life flow
But though you’re far away from me
The speed of light will take me home to you
How long will the songbirds sing
Sunlight on their wings
Until we all meet in the faraway field in the sky?
How long will the honey bee
Make its home by me
Until we all meet in the faraway hive in the sky?
Three voices in the room
You’ll find their empty spaces come too soon
The way we touch the strings
And voice to voice we’re holding onto something
But though you’re far away from me
The speed of light will take me home to you
How long will the songbirds sing
Sunlight on their wings
Until we all meet in the faraway field in the sky?
How long will the honey bee
Make its home by me
Until we all meet in the faraway hive in the sky?
Where will the songbirds sing?
Faraway, faraway...
Track Name: the dusty path
The Dusty Path

I was walking up the dusty path up the hillside
I was walking up the dusty path to the blue sky
And when I reached the top,
There was only you and I.
I was walking up the dusty path in the sunshine
I was walking up the dusty path to the blue sky
And when I reached the top,
There was only you and I.
Only you and I
Only, only you and I
Only you and I under the western sky
Only you and I
Only, only you and I
Only you and I under the western sky
Ooooooooooo
I was walking up the dusty path up the hillside
I was walking up the dusty path to the blue sky
And when I reached the top,
There was only you and I.
Only you and I
Only, only you and I
Only you and I under the western sky
Only you and I
Only, only you and I
Only you and I under the western sky
Ooooo we could make a tune
Ooooo in the afternoon
Ooooo we could make a tune
Ooooo in the afternoon
Oooooo like the clouds we sail
Oooooo on the dusty trail
Oooooo like the clouds we sail
Oooooo on the dusty trail
Track Name: so far as i can tell
So Far As I Can Tell

You ask me all the reasons why
So far as I can tell
It’s coz the sun is shining in the sky
You wanna know the reasons how
So far as I can tell
The past is just the past and now is now
You ask me all the reasons why
So far as I can tell
It’s coz the birds have learned that they can fly
How do we find the things we know?
So far as I can tell
It’s coz the stars are up there all aglow
Steppin’ through the morning dawn
We’re passing through the shade
And walking to the brightness of the sun
Track Name: old-fashioned christmas
Old-Fashioned Christmas

Quiet glow
All the lights are low
Cozy feeling
Watching the snow
Rum pum pum
Um pum pum
Spins around still
In your head
The doorbell is ringing
Kids' eyes are gleaming
There’s carolers out in the night
Seeing their breath in the cold
frosty air
And it’s ringing true
Welcome to
An old-fashioned Christmas
Dancing light
of the fire bright
Crackling and warm
to the soul
Writing to
Folks I knew
So long ago
The doorbell is ringing
Kids' eyes are gleaming
There’s carolers out in the night
Seeing their breath in the cold
frosty air
And it’s ringing true
Welcome to
An old-fashioned Christmas
