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.

Track Name: Alec
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
Track Name: Tears Of A Spirit
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
Track Name: If I Was
(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
Track Name: Happiness Hill
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
Track Name: It's An Art
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
Track Name: John Of The Four Track Heart
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
Track Name: I'll Be A Mountain
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
Track Name: Going Home
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
Track Name: Only One
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
Track Name: The Other Side
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
