Track Name: New Few & Last
New Few & Last

These days
These brand new days
Have been
At least for me

Lung screaming – yea
Eye breathing – yea
Big smiling

Glad to meet ya baby!

Born free
At least that’s what I am
No flag
That beast don’t get me

Hard traveling – yea
Long past breaking – yea
Still winging it

Good to see ya again!

Those days
Those in your stride days
Are sweet
At least they can be

Mark making
Great big talking
Still walking

Who loves ya – we all do!

These days
At least these last few days
Will be
Some bell for thee
I’m free

Forsaken – yea
Unforsaken – hell yea
I go humming
I go singing
I go bringing

Hallelujah baby
Hallelujah again
Hallelujah days
I love you

Track Name: You To Someone
You To Someone

We are living in a time
Of no pauses
We used to tell stories
On red and black vases

Everybody’s elders
Have always been wrong
Half of the time
Course they’re bound
To be right
Some of the time
Plenty of times
Or is that just lately

It’s got so easy getting
To someone
But it’s so hard
Getting thru to someone
I don’t make friends
To say I knew someone
I’m too damn fine just to do someone
I wanna be - I wanna be
Just wanna be
You to someone

If your sister speaks
With you honestly
Count yourself lucky
She didn’t used to
It ain’t all honey
Yet you take it
And you’ll like it
Enough
But that’s only lately

If you feel the moon
Hanging wrong above you
It’s cuz you tried
To turn the tides
To be a sum to someone
You type and fail
To give your guts
To someone
As they photograph their closet
And they cc you blindly
Like like like like like like
Like - its all the same

It’s got so easy getting
To someone
But it’s so hard
Getting thru to someone
I don’t make friends
To say I knew someone
I’m too damn fine just to do someone
I wanna be - I wanna be
You to someone

Track Name: Edward Says
Edward Says

Pull down the boxes
Edward said
Pack it all up
We’re moving again
Edward said

Two-lane blacktop
Verlaine hi-way
We’re headed west
Or maybe east I don’t know

Edward says we gotta go
We gotta go
Edward says we gotta go

Shredding house the way we do
Headed out for somewhere new
Ready or not just me and you
Edward says

I’m not your dad
Edward says
It’s not that bad
To start it again
He said

Shedding skins the way we do
Heading into skies of blue
Ready or not just me and you
You said
You said
You said
You said

Watching for signs
In the rearview
Wishing I was home
Or outta my head I don’t know

Edward says let’s go to bed
Lets go to bed
Edward says lets go to bed

Track Name: Muscle Memory
Muscle Memory

The sun does what it does
The moon does what it will
I do what I do
I still miss you still

The loss is settling in
Leaves falling without sound
Making me wonder
How we got so unwound

I reach for your hand
Searching for your heat
It’s only muscle memory
And it hurts
But it’s sweet

The air no longer matters
The stars mean the same
I sit here shattered
I call and call your name

Life is life and life goes on
It’s strong and it destroys
I will you to appear
But I remembered the news today
Oh boy

I reach for your hand
Searching for your heat
It’s only muscle memory
And it hurts
But it’s sweet
