Track Name: Rhythm & Reason
I am the rhythm and you are the reason.
I am the snow and you are the season.
You're my "up" when I'm feeling down.
I'm a little square and you're a little round.

You're a little wink and I start to smile.
You're a little drink and I'm cool for a while.
Heart's on fire and you are the flame.
You're a little wild and I'm a little tame.

Oh, heavenly days and bless my soul.
You're my rock when I start to roll.
When darkness falls upon the sun,
You'll still be my only one.

I am the sand and you are the sea.
It's paradise when you're next to me.
You are the leaves and I am the tree.
You are the love that sets me free.

You are the hand and I am the glove.
I am the faith and you are the love.
You are the space and I am the time.
I am the bread and you are the wine.

Oh, heavens to Betsy, for the love of Mike.
I am the wheels and you are the bike.
You are the marrow and I am the bone.
Together we'll never have to be alone.

One fine day, when you're in my arms, we'll fly away.
One fine day, on some organic farm, we'll fly away.

We'll call up the preacher and tie the knot.
And drive my truck to a secluded spot.
And roast our weenies out under the stars.
Beneath the moon, you'll show me Mars.

You are the sun and I am the moon.
You are the words and I am the tune.
You are the honey and I am the comb.
Deep in your heart, I call my home.

Oh, heavenly days and bless my soul.
You're my rock when I start to roll.
When darkness falls upon the sun,
You'll still be my only one.
Track Name: Borders Divine
Honey pie your the reason why there's a sun in the sky & I'm feel'n so high. I can't explain why, but I'm wanna try.
La da dee, la da dye. You're the sparkle in my "I love you." Believe me when I say: "Everything's gonna be O.K."
The day you met me in the hall, I felt pretty tall when you said I could call you on the phone. How could I have known, my mind was blown, when we were alone together.
Hiking to the springs, we did many things that I'll never forget. But you can bet, I told you the truth, when I said it was the fountain of youth, remember.

Your love borders divine. (I need you.)
Here against my skin, here to breathe you in. (I love you.)
Your love boarders divine. (I see you.)
Here inside my head, standing by the bed. (I need You.)
Your love borders divine. (Believe me.)
The message that I send, I said I called you a friend, forever.

Sweet pea, you can be with me at the top of the tree or beneath the sea. No, I can't explain why, but I want to fly.
La da dee, la da dye. You're the one that's on my mind. If I stop by to say "hello." You're the one that I want to know together.
Walking through the park, it got kinda dark, we were in the trees, I got on my knees. I said "baby, please." I said "baby, please." "Oh, baby please believe me."
Lying in the grass, clouds floating past, I was feeling cool. Down by the school a long dragon lies, with a blanket cover'n his eyes.

Your love borders divine. (I need you.)
Here against my skin, here to breathe you in. (I love you.)
Your love boarders divine. (I see you.)
Here inside my head, standing by the bed. (I need You.)
Your love borders divine. (Believe me.)
The message that I send, I said I called you a friend, forever.
Track Name: Are You Ready?
Time, time.
Sugar and satin aware of our fate.
O cosmic solution resolving a date.
Pennies and nickels for passing the plate.

Time, time.
Younger than older, that man, woman, child.
Now swaddling, toddling mercy so mild.
Now we're releasing them into the wild.

Ah, ah you ready for this? Ah, ah perpetual bliss. Ah, ah, ah...

Time, time.
Cactus attacked us our stinging parched tongues.
Oh Jacob remind us your ladder has rungs.
I'm not sure the truth will be filling our lungs.

Ah, ah you ready for this? Ah, ah nature's first kiss. Ah, ah, ah...

Warm summer breeze and the moon's lazy shadow.
Hold'n on tight as we stray to the meadow's singing trees...

Time, time.
Coltsfoot, Calypso and Hemlock, Gnaphalium.
Golden Chantrelle in the woods, Wild Geranium.
Sweetness in Death Oh and Life Everlasting.

Time, time.
Ripplebrook, Riverside, Rainbow & Raab.
Bull of the Woods, Nowhere Bridge down to Battle Axe.
Scattering grouse & the ravens and fisher tracks.

Ah, ah you ready for this? Ah, ah the hills in the mist. Ah, ah, ah...

Time, time.
Thomas and Jonathan, Drew, Alexandre.
Mikel and Ada and Blue Salamander.
Progeny's progeny, none could be grander.

Ah, ah you ready for this? Ah, ah finding your wish. Ah, ah, ah...

Warm summer breeze and the moon's lazy shadow.
Hold'n on tight as we stray to the meadow's singing trees...
Track Name: Reverse
One fine day it's gonna happen just the way you said it would.
One fine day I'm gonna wake up feeling like I should.
All the break up, rattle shake up, feelings will be gone for good.
I'm tired on lying, crying cause ya
Can't believe a word I say, you can't believe a word.
But you make my heart beat fast and slow.
You stop the rain and you make it snow.
You know everything I know and I can
Feel it in reverse.
Feel it in reverse.
Feel it in reverse.
Feel it in re...

What would happen if, suddenly the time was now?
What would happen if, suddenly I cried right now?
All the pain would flow out, blow out fear, relax my dear.
But it all sounds so absurd.
But it's all I've ever heard.
Cause you make my heart beat fast and slow.
You stop the rain and make it snow.
You know everything I know. And I can
Feel it in reverse.
Feel it in reverse.
Feel it in reverse.
Feel in in re...

Oh, my God I cried. I just woke up. I'm still alive.
Half an hour ago I boarded for the other side.
Strap me in and light the fuse.
I'm ready for some happy news.
Gimmie five, four three's and two's.
Cause every word you say, is happening today. And I can
Feel it in reverse.
Feel it in reverse.
Feel it in reverse.
Feel it in re...
