Track Name: Wind Wolves Wild
leave it and don’t turn back
lest the mountains return to sand
you can hold in the palm of your hand
nothing will bring those days back

you spent in one long sigh
all the fortune that burned in your eyes
you can run, you did run, but you can’t hide
from the sorrow that keeps you alive

so sit with me
in this quiet invitation
wrestle your sorrows aside
stay with me, and leave your explanation
to the wind / to the wolves / to the wild

all of you shines with a great light
as we hold on to (h)ours tight
they are shorter than short, blinding bright
one stays back while the other takes flight

i’ll leave a trail for you to someday find
in these city blocks that pull from me like tides
what is yours now, it once was mine
and nothing can bring me home to that time

so sit with me…

i’ll return in due time
to find we’ve all gone on with our lives
even ten thousand lakes cannot hide—
we all caught that fast train to ride
so call us mostly satisfied

and sit with me
in this quiet invitation
wrestle your sorrows aside
stay with me, and leave your explanation
to the wind, to the wolves, to the wild
Track Name: Closer Now
you say you'll take me this time around, and i should know better now
but i'm tinged with fever, a subtle heat-- no-- i'm bursting at the seams
when you let me close

take a firm hand with a tender grasp, now i'm begging for collapse
you held me in

i want you to know me
and i'll sink into you

i could fight it, but i don't wanna try
one touch and my mouth runs dry
i've got this fever, a raptured core
now i don't sleep anymore

do you want me to know you
will you sink into me
i want you closer now
