Track Name: Beside A River
The daily weight grows from a whisper
Louder and louder in my mind
We fell asleep beside a river
And in the morning it was quiet

The days get darker as the pressure
Gathers a cloud between our eyes
We fell asleep under a redwood
And in the morning it was bright
Track Name: Tunnel View
The valley is bursting out
Taking the breath from our mouths
With our radio up so loud

The water makes all this sound
Even when no one’s around
With no idea of the thrill it gives
We spent all of our strength just to get a glimpse

We’re so pleased just to sleep on the ground
The trees have never made a promise
The trees have never let me down
I’ve been lost, but never out here
My wandering thoughts seem so common and clear

When I cower at the granite’s feet
I don’t find myself worrying
If my prayers are soliloquies
just echoing off of the towering peaks

Rest, rest from the heat
The lake has dried up
But the meadow glows sweetly

Stare at the faces in pink
We’re learning their heights
By what’s left of the evening

Til they pool in the blue of the moon
