Track Name: Lila
with the hands of God's angels
Lila touched everyone
and for all those who wander
laid a path in these words

make something useful of today
always be kind and patient
prove what you learn and love your family
always be kind and patient
kind and patient be

Lila tell me your story
and I'll make it a song
play for all those who hunger
so that they may be strong

and make something useful of the day
always be kind and patient
prove what you learn, and love your family
always be kind and patient
kind and patient be

and go carry your fears into the sun
'cause you're heavy, but don't worry
no, we'll paddle that weight into the blue
then we go watch it drift away from view

[eso Lila, estas en una cancion
que es buena pa' bailar
hasta que te canses
vamos Lila que con gozo y amor
esto es pa' celebrar
cuando la cante yo]
Track Name: The Wall
down by the wall, the earth has given up her ghost
and long ago, the waters drained from every pore,
up high the stars are bright because they try
but cannot look away
oh lord

a story's told, of simple lives of simple folk
who settled down, before the borders had been drawn,
their children born in sin because they didn't know
the maps had changed
oh lord
can we gain some perspective from above?

in Washington, they draw the plans and raise the funds
they break the ground, they keep us safe from the evil ones
who now have grown under the shadow of these walls
we've built for them
oh lord!

in Mexico, a new cartel has found a home
under the stars, in the broken land of the Rio Grand'
where fathers pray to God for someone to redeem
their children's name
oh lord
Track Name: I Love You
here I come for you tonight
with broken wings
here the ocean breaks my fall
and I'm okay!
here the earth begins to rise
to swallow me
and here among this molten rock
I see your face

I feel you close
you are taking on the world I'm taking in your strength
I'm burning hot, I'm coming up
I love you...

here I find myself on land
the sky is red
here the sun begins to dawn
but never ends
here is space for you to run
next to me
here your fingers reach for mine
oh here we dance

you've always held
every single part of me that I've struggled to find
here I am whole, here I am home
and I love you...
Track Name: Numbers and Lines
it's the kind of sound that sinks a hole in my head,
it comes around to take a word that you said
and explains the world for me
with numbers and lines that become a sea
of glitter and gold

I tried to lead a life of water and bread
to leave a light on where the fathers have fed
but instead I have sown the seed
that spread as a vine 'till it reached the sea
as others foretold

and it feels right
to begin
for a while
without a single thing in mind that could make the wheels run
the ticking hands
of space and time...

it's Friday night and I'm alone in my bed
the phony silence of the battery's dead
and the world has come for me
but nothing escapes from this ebbing sea
that has taken control

and it feels right
to begin
for a while
without a single thing in mind that could make the wheels run
the ticking hands
of space and time...

you got a light on the door and cracks on the floor
creeping under your skin like an old violin
the moon is high and the nights are long
but you are never really with us 'till we sing your song

... light on the door and cracks on the floor
creeping under your skin like an old violin
the world has stopped, you claimed your spot
you tear of your skin and you show them what you are made of...
Track Name: Someday
someday, I'll be someone who helps to make it
okay, for all the people that have found their
own way, to show that hate isn't real

and it won't be a matter of luck
I hear the promise and I hear the call
I see the goal and I see the path to walk
and now the time has come to make that someday today

someday, I'll hold the scepter of the king and
hold sway, in all the rooms where only money
has a say, and I'll speak up for the real

and it won't be a matter of luck
I hear the promise and I hear the call
I see the goal and I see the path to walk
and now my time has come to make that someday...

today
it won't be a matter of luck
I hear the promise and I hear the call
I see the goal and I see the path to walk
and now that time has come...

so make that someday today

'cause you know the world becomes what the world becomes
and all we ever have is this moment
to give it a world in a day
to let the world becomes what the world becomes
and give it a world in a day
Track Name: Here We Are
there's so much to say yet here we are
sometimes the words have escaped me
yet some days it's been the time
that got away

perhaps it's right to start with the fact that I love you!
'cause I do
oh I do...

I found it hard in life to find myself
I lost my bearings searching for someone else
I tried to be the one for each and every one
except for me, I was drifting at sea

you and I were ships at night
I felt you in the ocean breeze
you were sailing by the stars
the taste of you was in my lips
and it would take a trip around the world or two
but here we are

if we must arrange a final song
if I put away my picks and you hang your bow
don't you know that I wouldn't trade a moment
of what we've done, for another run?

'cause you and I were ships at night
but you found me
yeah, you found me!

oh in the darkness of night
you heard the call of my soul
you shined a path with your light
and let me follow you home...

there's much to say yet here we are...

oh if I ever try to set a course away from you
I hope you never lose yourself in what I want to do
'cause you were perfect by the stars
and you are perfect to the ocean breeze

just let me follow you home
let me follow you home...
Track Name: The Impossibility of Us
feelin' tired and overcome
dealin' hard and I'm finding gold
is the only dirty friend that I have
some nights

tipsy start in a gypsy home
lost my heart in a rabbit's hole
and it's older now
than I'll ever be

and I am finding out
where this is going for me
and it's only down...

I'm down on my knees

why don't you come and see
just why you came
to this time we share
and the lives you care for most?

why don't you come and breathe
this air surrounding me?
and tell me if this love I feel
is enough...

for the impossibility of us at all
and of finding words
for what this moment is worth
Track Name: Tonight I Know
I went walking on my own, and thinking of the things you told me
F G
that you loved me deeply yet, but your needs were never met
(repeat to end at same rhythm)

so I had to let you go, but I thought that you would hold me
somewhere deep inside your chest, close to where you knew me best

But tonight I know, that you have let me go,
You have sold me, you are gone

I went driving late last night, singing all the songs I wrote for you
taking all the streets I took with you, with the windows rolled down

you would lean back on your seat, with your feet up on the dash and play
with your toes against the glass and leave, a reminder you were there

But tonight I know, that you have let me go,
You have sold me, you are gone

And all our hopes and dreams, have become a scene
From a movie… that was never seen

so here is my goodbye, I won’t tell you that I’m lonely
I won’t tell you that I’m sad, or that I wish I had you back

I take it all in stride, I take the pieces that you left
I make them into something great, and I leave you all the rest

because tonight I know that you have let me go,
you have sold me, you are gone.

Oh tonight I know, that you have let me go,
You have sold me. You are gone. You are gone.
Track Name: Your Makeup
you' lips are fire red, you' eyes are cold and dark
like the choker on your neck, it fails to fool the past
no, time is not a friend, but another night has come, well
with a bottle in one hand, and a trip to never-land

to find the girl you think you lost
no, don't believe this world, it is all made up
yes you are innocent, and real

oh mirror on the wall, who's the fattest of them all?
tell how you see me now, that the rest of me is gone
do you like me better now, that I fit inside your glass?
well do you love me now, that I've become someone else?

you're still the girl you think you lost
no, don't believe this world it is all made up
yes, you are beautiful and whole

beneath your makeup, your true makeup is something more
you take off that makeup, but your makeup is hanging on
beneath that makeup, oh your makeup is so much more
you take off that makeup, 'cause no one makes up who you are

you're still the girl you think you lost
no, don't believe this world it is all made up
yes, you are innocent and free
oh, you are beautiful and strong
Track Name: The Silence
I am the silence that hangs on these walls
oh I am the silence that hangs on these walls
I hold your memories, I feel your touch
and I am the silence that hangs on these walls

I am the voices that never get heard
oh I am the voices that never get heard
I bring a message of courage and hope
and I am the voices that never get heard

and I...
was born beneath the winds that
gave shape unto the mountains
and I swam within the currents
that busted into fountains
I was never really certain
of my purpose in existence
but I found more than reason for being
the day I met you...
