Katrina Clark This is my favorite song on the list of awesome songs. Madeline's voice is smooth and smoky, the harmony is wonderful and the clarinet's notes bundles it all into my favorite pick! Love the other music as well...Monkey Love :-). Favorite track: Muddy Blue.

Walk of Life 05:16
Walk of life we meet again, and all has changed to be the same, Another war, another crime, to mark the passages of time, What if all is simply good, and you and I just have to change The way we think about the world, to see the world anew? Walk of life we meet again and all the words are coming in, You say you’ve learned the ways of life; your heart is turning with the knife, So you go making up a paradise like you’re the only one that knows What’s good and knows what’s real… Well tell me how you feel… What if all is life? And what if all is love? What if all my hopes and memories are just another word For all the things I think I carry on, but none of them belong? Walk of life we meet again, and all has changed to be the same, When all the fears start coming on, does it help to know the earth is round And in three hundred sixty days you’ll be back here To make the same mistakes, but with a little bit more grace? What if all ain’t what it seems? What if the stars are not so small and if the sky just isn’t blue And doesn’t end with the horizon? No distractions and no rules about attractions to this world… What if I’m at the horizon? What if I’m not just a silly mess of blood and bones, just trying to get along? And trading actions for reactions, when it’s all just light’s refractions Showing me and showing you, in all the ways that can’t be true… Oh what if all is life? And what if all is love? What if all my hopes and memories are just another word For all the things I think I carry on, but none of them belong?

Muddy Blue 03:41
Everything's broken, nothing’s right You don't get a wink of sleep at night And you don't know what you're doing What touches my hands turns to mud What touches my lips tastes like blood And everything is ruined. I'm so neat and I'm so cute And God gave me two feet to shoot So I don't get where I'm going And you’re so muddy blue, So muddy blue, Muddy blue, Muddy blue… I'm telling you to get away You're free to leave and you're free to stay Now just where do you ink you're going What scare you more? What you don't know, Or knowing you'll be where you go Forever and forever And you’re so muddy blue, So muddy blue, Muddy blue, Muddy blue…

Roll On 03:45
You and me… we roll on, onto the street again, And these glass shields we roll up; we can’t even hear the same. From here to there it is all gone; from there we will start again. It’s all wrong and it’s all a game; we leave this world the same… So I don’t care what we’ve been sold It isn’t more than some time alone, And you can’t tell if it hurts at all… Could it be that the feeling is gone? And we roll on… You and me… just hold on, mistaking the pain for rain, And all these pills we’ve taken, so we’re faking the feeling sane. They say “you’re dying,” you say, “Go on. Do you think that I’ll make it through?” We drown our fears, but we drown our hope of ever knowing it’s all a shame… So I don’t care what we’ve been sold It isn’t more than some time alone, And you can’t tell if it hurts at all… Could it be that the feeling is gone? And we roll on… Yeah we just roll on… Between all these pills we’ve swallowed, And the glass with the skull and bones, We’ve drowned ourselves just to kill the sorrow… Could it be that the feeling is gone? And we roll on…

Hold me so my head is high, and let this costal wind inspire Higher hopes in this desire for the once of a kiss That takes my breath away… Hold me so my feet are dry, and let this southern sun and fire Burn a hole through this desire for the once of a kiss That takes my pain away… ‘Cause in the end, when all my friends are gone, Oh in the end, when all my friends are gone, I hope I have found what love is – that I understand what love is, Not just a kiss, and not just a hand to hold, But Love itself, and on its own… Hold me so my head is high, and let this costal wind inspire Higher hopes in this desire for the once of a kiss That takes my breath away…

Okay I’ll wait ‘till I get home To conclude that I am all alone, And I ultimately see That two people thought that they were me, And I’m always playing catch-up, And I hope that I don’t mess up, My one chance to uncover… Okay I’ll wait ‘till I explode To admit that everything you told me Was everything I’d need For the step that was in front of me, And you don’t have to look around to find what you have found It’s always in the place you left it, And I’m always playing catch-up, And I hope that I don’t mess up, My one chance to discover… So now I’m on my own And it’s possible what I’ve been shown’s Not comparable to what I can see… And I’m always playing catch-up, And I hope that I don’t mess up, My one chance to be lovers… And you don’t have to look around to find what you have found It’s always in the place you left it… No you don’t have to look around to find what you have found It’s always in the place you left it…

Monkey Love 04:59
If I was a fish who, lived in the sea, And you were a monkey on the ground, I’d travel to shore, where water is short, And you could come in and not drown… But if you never came to the water, I’d have to jump out, and learn to breathe the air… For you… for you… If I was a goat, who lived on a boat, And you were a bird in the sky, I’d paddle and row, when you’re flying low, In case you decided to land… But if you never came to the water, I’d have to grow wings, and learn to fly above… For you… for you… For you… for you… Monkey love…

You don’t know me, but I see you Claiming space underneath my skin, While the wise and the strong refuse My stone crumbles and rises with ease to the wind… You don’t know me, but every day You’re becoming a trusted friend, While I sink in the weight of my ways The stone rises and rides the waves to the sand… We’re falling stars in stratospheres of worlds beyond our own Where dawn's a light born to reveal the mysteries yet unknown And seeing, you see me, seeing you… You don’t know me, but nights are soon For the rising of righteous love, In the darkness and hope of a tomb The stone lapses, the angels have come from above… We’re falling stars in stratospheres of worlds beyond our own Where dawn's a light born to reveal the mysteries yet unknown And seeing, you see me, seeing you… And all the while we’re making stories that someday Will fill the time between the courses of our first date, And we’ll laugh because it’s over now, and say it all makes sense… But is this different? I’m seeing you… Well, is this different? Are you seeing me?

Stay Awake 02:58
I stay awake, and I think about the day that was But shortly went away. Will tomorrow feel the same? Well you’re breathing deep into the night… Is it morning where you are? And are you happy where you are? One kiss, my love, good night. I stay awake, and I think about the fact that We can think of who we are. Well you know, if we were gone today… The world goes on, but there’s no one home To look up at the stars… And wonder who we are! One kiss, my love, good night. I stay awake, and I think about how close we are… One kiss, my love… Y’say good night but I stay awake, And you’re gone but I stay awake, I can see you fly though I stay awake. Goodbye… Stay awake….
