Track Name: Aeroplane
You know I can’t stay long
Where I don’t belong, where I know it’s wrong
And I cannot believe what I don’t believe –
I don’t believe
And though the sky is long –

I want to go on an aeroplane
I want to go where I’ve never been
I want to know of you everything
Oh my darling, give me wings

So I can up and leave
There are other places meant for me
And though the sky is long –
There’s somewhere I belong
I know I belong

Can’t keep moving on
Because there’s something wrong with it
Can’t keep moving on

But I want to go on an aeroplane
I want to go where I’ve never been
I want to know of you everything
Oh my darling, give me wings
Track Name: Mountain
I may know where I’ve been
But I don’t know where I’ll be going
And she will look up to me
When I feel I’m a valley

I’ll be mountain
I’m the first place to get the rain
I’m a mountain
I’m as tall as anything
And I’ve been so soft all the way
I’ve been so soft all the way

Honey, what song will we sing?
In the long bright morning?
Some rocks may fall by chance
And sometimes an avalanche

I’ll be mountain
I’m the first place to get the rain
I’m a mountain
I’m as tall as anything
And I’ve been so soft all the way
I’ve been so soft all the way
Track Name: Going to the Sea
Now we know
That I came to watch the dying light
It’s gold and the sky is neverending
Now we know
That the summer brought a lot to mind
It was there in the air, there in the air

(Car wheels rolling, summer soul)

The car wheels roll beneath me
We’re going to the sea
Where the comets fill the evening
Where the morning gulls be free

Now we know
That I came to watch the boats go by
They float on and I can’t see where they’re going
Now we know
That some people find the peace of mind
It’s there in the air, and for me too

(Car wheels rolling, summer soul)

The car wheels roll beneath me
We’re going to the sea
Where the water still receives me
Where the waters all be free
Track Name: Evening Stroll
Where the trees are growing
And the leaves sit on the wind
It’s nice to know the stars and sit alone
‘Cause I don’t know no god to answer to

When I go on my evening stroll
Where I go –
Only I know

You’re always stalling
If you don’t show, you won’t win
You know no one’s gonna write you a note
And time don’t wait up for no one

When you go on your evening stroll
Where you go –
Only you know

We’re stronger from what didn’t kill us
Well beyond the awesome wilderness – overgrown
Oh, no – don’t go leaving well enough alone
‘Cause I’m well
And enough for you to hold on to
Track Name: Gardening
Doing some gardening in spring
I’m pulling out the weeds
With my whole being
On my hands and knees
While my dog eats a leaf
All the calling seeds –

To make the earth sing
I love the feeling
I love the feeling

Doing some gardening in spring
As the wind blows in –
It brings the smell of smoke from the mountains west of here
As far as feelings go, I feel all the way from here
Of all the seeds we sow, some go dark and some go clear
And here I go – I’ll plant some right here –

To make the earth sing
I love the feeling
I love the feeling
I love the feeling
Track Name: What Do You Say? (feat. Mark Kozelek)
I wait for you to come home
And share with me your thoughts
I like it when we talk

What do you think?
I’m thinking less
What do you know?
I know myself
What do you love?
I love you still
Well, what do you say?
No, you say it best

I wait for you to come home
Some days go on so long
Then we find some time to talk

What do you think?
I’m thinking less
What do you know?
I know myself
What do you love?
I love you still
Well, what do you say?
No, you say it best

The years, the years are gone
I like it when we talk

What do you think?
This and that
What do you miss?
I miss all of it
What do you love?
I love you still
Then what do you say?
No – you say it best
What do you make?
I make amends
What do you have?
I have my friends
What do you own?
I own up to it
And do you forgive me, do you forgive me?
Yes!
But what if I’m old?
We’ll be older yet
What do you wish?
To have no regrets
What do you love?
I love you still
Well, what do you say?
I say yes
Yes, yes
Track Name: Find Your Way Home
Surely I might find my way
If we all listen
Surely I might find my way
If we all listen and we’re honest now

Be honest now
If we all listen
We all mess up
So be honest now
While the sea goes rising up

Surely you might find your way
If we all listen
Surely you might find your way home safely yet

Be honest now
We all mess up so be honest now
Be honest now
While the sea goes rising up

We had seen better days
Up the river, in the shade
I lay you down in the tall grass
By the farmhouse in the day

Be honest now
We all mess up so be honest now
Be honest now
While the sea goes rising up

You’re the be-all of this town
Track Name: Be You Lost
Hold forth, you said
Let’s take a walk
Let’s have a lend
How long we’ve been sharing thoughts
Being friends

Be you lost or be you found
Or be you laid down
I’ll wait

Stay around
Let’s stay in
We could all use something
So say us: you’re not alone

Be you lost or be you found
Or be you laid down
I’ll wait

Don’t change for no one
And I won’t change for no one
Track Name: Being Born
Being born, being born
What a wonder of the world
Being born, being born – headfirst

Being loved, being lost
Being left all up to us
Oh, being born has a lot to answer for

Getting old, growing up
Over yonder there’s a club
Have a time, let’s have a time
My wonder, my wife

Being loved, being lost
Being left all up to us
Oh, being born has a lot to answer for

Full of blood, full blown
Is how I live now that I know
Giving birth, giving birth
Is what I give now to the earth

Being loved, being lost
Being all that we’ve got and all we want
It’s our answer to the earth
Track Name: Seeing You Now
Seeing you now, out and about
I feel we’re so much older now
How long has it been?
Since we were living in this old home?

I knew you oh so well
I have so much to tell you
If I could say it all, I would say it all
But I’ve not peace as well
I’ve put so much behind me
We could make it up
If you feel like coming home?

Seeing you now, out and about
I feel we’re so much older now
I could do anything
This city’s glistening
I wish I’d known that, I wish I’d known

It didn’t go so well
I had so much to tell you but I kept it all in
I kept it all
And I know all too well –
The years come back to find you
They don’t let you off, they don’t let you off
It’s been oh so long
And I know love comes and goes
But we could make it up
If you feel like coming home?

Do you feel like coming home?
