Track Name: Wilderness
Listen as the leaves crunch
I'm making my way, making my way
Every single footstep counts

Lead me down the river
Smooth it down, smooth it down
Skipping four or five times now
But I need a break from this hallowed place

The dawn appears in silence
A voice calling from the horizon out to me
A melody
I hear a whisper saying
A voice calling from the horizon out to me
A melody

Listen with all eyes closed
I'm finding my way, finding my way
Treading soft and sure and deep

Feeding on this forest
Get what I need, what I need
But still I know it's not enough
It's been so long since I've seen your face

Morning's breaking

Track Name: In the Clearing
I stood in the clearning
Sun over my head
You were so endearing
Nightingale sing for me

You may think I'm crazy
Maybe you should join me
Just to feel light and heady
Nightingale sing for me

Sing a little melody for me

(c) 2011 - Kelci E. Smith (ASCAP)
Track Name: Desiderium
Look at the clock
Tick tock, tick tock
Sunrise coming up behind those hills
I think you know it's time you stop
It's time to say

Hello, hey
Hello, hey

Desiderium
We're all digging, digging trenches of delirium
We gotta find a way, gotta find a way
And I think it's time to say

(c) 2011 - Kelci E. Smith (ASCAP)
Track Name: Reverie
Reverie
Is this really happening to me
All this time I thought I had the key
But I didn't

Say the word
And I'm lost in some enchanted place
Wild flowers and fields of Queen Anne's Lace
I'm dreaming

Reverie
Don't you pick on me
I need something better
You may be amused
When I sing the blues
But I feel so much better
We'll see how this goes

Substantial
Is a word that I know very well
And I guess that time will tell
The story

I figure
All of the impossibilities
Are quite possible you see
It's funny

Track Name: Mon Ami
What to say
To you my friend
What to say
Today

You have shown
Grace today
You've shown grace
Today

Que vous dire
Mon Ami
Que dire aujourd'hui

Vous avez montré
La grâce aujourd'hui

La grâce aujourd'hui

Track Name: This House
Evidence that someone’s been here
I don’t mind a crumb or two
Sweep the stair
Have a laugh
Trying to do some good

Growing growing growing
This house is moaning moaning moaning
A mess is home to me

Don’t tarry long
I need you here
Come make some dust with me
Sit on the stoop
Have a drink
I’m trying to do some good

Track Name: Dangerous is the Sound
She said
Quiet your voice, quiet down
I am afraid of your fate
Dangerous is the sound that you make
I can't take it anymore

Little one stop putting up a fight
Stop your crying it'll be alright
Never, never will I let you go
Safe forever I'll protect your soul

I said
Quiet your voice, quiet down
I'm not afraid of my fate
Dangerous is the sound that I make
I can't take it anymore

Track Name: Wrung & Possibly Broken
Wrung and possibly broken
Wrung and possibly broken
Wrung and possibly broken
Wrung and possibly broken, but do stay true

Track Name: The Trouble Is
What is this feeling
Like a fish caught on a hook
No time to get untied
So I wiggle on this line
It's troubling

But maybe on the other side
Of this darn creek is light
Gotta take a bite
And see if my hunches are right
I'm not sure
But who is

I'm a swimming
To the boat
And I'm thinking
This might work out
A sudden end may be in store
But I can't breath under water no more
So long fishy friends
It's time to go

Can I apologize
For stinking up this place
It's not supposed to be so stagnant
It is a disgrace
I'm so sorry
Yes I am

But this time I'll do better
In my true habitat
Maybe you're confused
But really I cannot fix that
It's on you

Track Name: Where Tales are Told
There's a place where no man goes
Human bodies can't behold
Warriors and kings of old
Gather here their tales are told

Babies meet their mothers here
Mother meet their babies here
In forms of perfect splendor
Their tales are told
Their tales are told

Victories and dungeons deep
Stories of joy and grief
All are passing memories
Where tales are told

Death and pain do not reside
The groom dances with his bride
You should see the love in their eyes
Where tales are told

(c) 2011 - Kelci E. Smith (ASCAP)
Track Name: The Golden Tree
So this is the end
Let's see what's 'round the bend
This river has its secrets deep
I can't unlock its mystery

Lovely to be here
I hold this place so dear
Now I can see clearly
I know what is behind me

Bring your gold
You have gained
Melt it down
Let it rain
In the ground will grow a golden tree

River run your course
For better or for worse
This unknown isn't easy
But promise you will keep me

Bring your gold
You have gained
Melt it down
Let it rain
In the ground will grow a golden tree

Remember this
All this pain
Doesn't waste a moment
To mark this time
We'll grow a tree golden
To mark this time
We'll grow a tree golden

(c) 2011 - Kelci E. Smith (ASCAP)
