From Bird's Dream


Birds Dream

Birds dream, birds dream (repeat)

And they dream so far from home

They dream so far from home, they haven't had

The runaround out of home

Birds dream, birds dream

They dream so far from home (repeat)

Their home

Birds dream, birds dream


A New song (2018)

We will have tiny blossoms in the summer and the winter

Though we never find a place where they could grow

When a flow'r shows its face like a sister or a brother

We will always find a place, a happy home

Not just cultivator's powers give us those tiny flowers

They can grow in wild places all alone

It's a simple little method, if we knew if we would follow

We could wander daily, never feel alone

etc.


Another new song (2019)

A soothing glass of milk, will help you rest your mind

A soothing glass, at all repasts, along at Christmastime

The times we have forgot, lays curdled in the wine

Let's sing those songs, and fah-lo psalms

Of past, and Christmastime

A soothing glass, at all repasts (all long at Christmastime)

The wrath is past (of all repasts) Now turn'd as on a dime

So take this glass of mine, there's one for you as well

Forgiveness come to you at last, although I'll never tell

A soothing glass, forget the past, and long for Christmastime.

A Tiny Rose

My father was a thinker

And he thought the most of me

He said I'd have a heliopad

And access to the sea

He said, "it's good, look/ For the book

I know you'll have inside"

And when he said these things to me

My mother, she would cry

Chorus    "A tiny rose, is all she needs to be

                 A tiny rose, no further than that seems

                 Stiff icing rose, you might think that that means

                 A tiny rose, is all she needs to be"

My father was a dreamer and he dreamt the most for me

He never told me that in life there are no guarantees

He said, "there's no free lunch, but I've a hunch that you'll go far"

My mother acted like he'd made

A wish upon a star

Chorus        "A tiny rose, is all she needs to be

                   A tiny rose, no further than that seems

                     Stiff icing rose, you might think that that means

                     A tiny rose, is all she needs to be"

My father saw my pain and strife and sadness found in life

He told me, "don't you go alone"/ I said, "I can't reply"

Before the day I found true love, he said he must depart

I wish he'd known I'd finally grown a blesséd mortal heart

Chorus    A tiny rose, is all you need to be

                A tiny rose, no further than that seems

                Stiff icing rose, you might think that that means

                A tiny rose, is all you need to be

from Colors That Shine


Colors That Shine

When it's a warm kind of day, I can't say the things

I mean to say

I mean to say things that fit maybe with a rainy day

The sidewalk wet when we walk on it, city lights up there

Just coloring on the pavement, no omens in the air

Oh, I just want the reflection (repeat)

Oh, don't say merci, don't say arrivederci

And if you touch me, I might leave too

I've got bright colors that shine

A deep bright color, that's mine

I don't have to go anywhere I don't want to

I've got bright colors that shine

I feel bright colors that shine

I don't know why this time

I don't know why I'm heading up to the sky

But I feel bright colors that shine

"Someday I'll put my own colors in the sky"

I used to say that to myself while time went rushing by

"And then I will go back to him, and we could make it real"

But now there's something new, this way that I feel

I've got bright colors that shine

I think it's because you're mine

Love's caught me unaware, now I'm walking on air

I've got bright colors that shine




Through Stones

It's true that we have to make our way

Through stones

It's true that we have to make our way

Through stones

Chorus      Through stones, we will have our say

                 We'll make another day, we'll make our way

                 Through stones

I knew I would sometimes feel alone

But I did not feel under my feet

The true stones

A vale of tears walked I, through which a world

I could not circumscribe

The path on which I walked and made my marks

They weren't writ in stone, but written in the dark

A past that I knew not why, it slowed my way

It made it rough and shady each day

And then one day, a thought came to my mind

A clear white air

That breached the sky

And then I could feel my feet, I knew I'd walked

Through stones

Chorus       Through stones we will find our way

                  We'll have our say, we'll make a better day

                  Through stones
