JDP I first heard this when watching a short video of how the clothing company of Elizabeth Suzann made their wool sweaters and it's Spring outside and it almost brought tears and made me really truly pleased to be in the world. Favorite track: If I Was.

Alec 02:49
This is all – I love you, I will blow into your sails This is your ship, The Seahorse…I will blow into your sails When you return you will speak of encounters with an iceberg, a snowy whale This is all – I love you, I will blow into your sails This is your ship, The Seahorse…I will blow into your sails And you will tell me of your fevered sleep… How I’m an angel with silvery wings Yeah, you will tell me of your fevered dreams… How I’m an angel with silvery, white wings

You’re passing all these little worlds Your little world can get so lonely You’re looking out and sometimes somebody steps inside But they always leave without saying goodbye You, in your world, travel across The kind of sky the camera loves It feels like rain I’m looking up Lightning on the horizon Tears of a spirit Something atmospheric You are the last of your kind One look from you is dangerous My heart in fragments from the crush - The weight of your love You wait for your love Drifting on the horizon Tears of a spirit Something atmospheric You are the last of your kind You won’t always be there waiting Somebody’s gonna find you and make you Home

If I Was 03:58
(from George MacDonald's novel, Sir Gibbie) Run, little stream, clatter Reach to the sea If I was a water So would I run Blow, wind, cool, clean Here and far away If I was a wind Wouldn't I blow Shine, old sun, Shine strong and fine If I was the sun's son Hearty would I shine
4.
Happiness hill A place you knew well when you were a child Comforting thrill Open a book and you’ll be there for a while You know you can’t control much in your life Lean into the light And go to happiness hill Your friends are waiting with stories that you crave Traveling lands Distant in life but so close there on the page You feel everything’s real between the lines And so you write Go Follow the muse I’ll catch up with you On happiness hill You’ll be the one with a daydream in your eye You’ll know me still Friends in a world with no stopping at the sky You seem like just like a dream Maybe you are But who really cares If it’s a dream When you’re inside a star Maybe we are On happiness hill Stay here until You say Au Revoir

It's An Art 03:57
I was bound to find a storyline All along the way I was looking for the words to say I wanted to make you mine And when I couldn’t I fell apart It’s an art- how to seem okay When the words you think aren’t the words you say When the moment arrives Nothing comes to my lips But my eyes meet yours And the world shifts I wanted to make you mine And when I couldn’t I fell apart It’s an art- how to seem okay When the words you mean aren’t the words you say Once I was a golden child And for miles around they knew my name I’ve been fighting for what’s left of my heart Since the day the sadness came Again Again Again
6.
Oh, John You weren’t on You were off Another world Pulled you in An atmosphere Like gravity Disappeared Held you up Stopped you dead In your tracks Arrested you And you moved To the beats Only you knew We all heard the beating of the drums They sounded simply too far off We all knew we could look but never find them We watched you go Like an astronaut With a keyboard and a four-track heart You walked on Nothing to do But watch you go and wish we could follow you Oh, John Where do you go When you write these songs That break our hearts? You shield your eyes From the sun We want to pull You from the dark Oh, John Where have you gone? Our astronaut With the four-track heart Another world… A galaxy Meant for you But not for me
7.
My love is quiet I do not try To sweep you off your feet Until the rising sea Comes in and you need me to lift you up My heart is fixed here I will not move, dear You’ve walked a great, lonely land I have not tried to turn your hand Till you know who loves you Won’t try to prove my point I’ll be a mountain and I’ll wait Oh, my love is sky-scraping Season after season waiting Oh, I’ll be a towering mountain Till you come around So when the clouds torment The cruel storm won’t relent And you are lost to the earth Lost to the land of your birth Don’t you know who loves you? I still don’t try to prove my point I’ll be a mountain and I’ll wait Oh, my love is sky-scraping Season after season waiting Oh, I’ll be a towering mountain Till you come around I’ll save all my heart for you

Going Home 05:29
Trees all lit up Sky darkening Under our feet – the earth moving I’m going home I walk this road Beside the gulf Lights from the boats blink in code – I’m going home HOME “You don’t understand me anymore,” whispered as we walk along the shore But everything about you has been home So I’m going Home Don’t feel the same So what? We’ve changed Along with the tides…lows and highs I’m going home HOME Walking as the dark sky turns light Reaching for a hand to hold mine Everything about you has been home I’m going home

Only One 03:35
Oh, I’m giving you whatever you want That’s how you love Over the years so much has changed But you are here You are still here Through every furious storm The burdened pull of the moon Tree branches trembling now One man has stayed That man is you Oh, you – the lad on a quest Journeying on under the stars Watching you turn Into a man so much has changed I will be here Just like you’ve been Through every furious storm The burdened pull of the moon Tree branches trembling now One man has stayed That man is you Baby, take my hand On in the quest A northern wind Wild in the night All of these years It’s been a dream To see the lights Only one man with whom to climb Through every furious storm The burdened pull of the moon Tree branches trembling now One man has stayed That man is you Over a mythical sea Into the great arctic land Quickening hearts to the north Tears in my eyes Holding his hand Only one man

Darling, my dream left me here at your doorstep All I’ve to do is just lift up my hand and knock But the flowers in your garden are impossibly sweet I am so dull All my life I’ve been getting my pleasure in at the wrong side of the world Darling, I’m reaching my hands through the gate towards light: (flooding my heart, makes me see, calls my name)….breathes life All the good things here are only echoes, dear I am so dull All my life I’ve been getting my pleasure in at the wrong side of the world There is a Hand, throws wide the gates And breaks the chains that bound me to a fading world I dream awake All my life Only now to break through Only Your love to wake me Oh, and how You take me to the other side
