Unromeo Mood (from the 'Two Little Awakenings' sessions, 2001. Remixed 2008)

Sticks on the fire
Smoke in the air
Ashes all blown away

Leaves on the ground
Dust in your eyes
and me, dwelling on rain clouds and skies full of grey

But maybe you've only been talking to me at the wrong time
'cause right now I guess I'm just not in my Romeo mood
Maybe I've only been thinking too much on how fragile we are in reality
to talk all about pretty petals of flowers in bloom.

A bird on the wing
Bask in the sun
Revel in your graceful flight

Shot from the sky
So sorry
I only feel like I'm nailed to the concrete tonight

But maybe you've only been talking to me at the wrong time
'cause right now I guess I'm just not in my Romeo mood
Maybe I've only been thinking too much on how fragile we are in reality
to talk all about pretty petals of flowers in bloom.

Fragile (written during the 'Two Little Awakenings' time frame, but not recorded until 2005. Remixed 2008.)

So, here we are, two fragile people
sharing the rest that companions provide
and a little bit of our inside escapes to the outside

Half on the verge of tears throughout our conversation
we both understand, but we don't really say it
it's easier just to assume

And you know, there's something that I'd like to tell you
You're not really weak, falling into my arms
if you just let yourself feel
And you know, there's something that I'd like to say
We're not all that fragile bearing our hearts
if you just look a bit longer

"The stronger the body, the stronger the man"
A shell of cast iron to guard
an average man
an average man
who never allows of himself to imagine beyond
to just, "what is this life?"
Who'd never admit he could cry

He just goes on believing that everything's fine
has a house and a job, he's content
He never should question where childhood dreams
went

But here we are, two "fragile" people
sharing the rest that companions provide
And a little bit of our inside escapes to the outside

And you know, there's something that I'd like to tell you
You're not really weak, falling into my arms
if you just let yourself feel
And you know, there's something that I'd like to say
We're not all that fragile bearing our hearts
if you just look a bit longer

Blue Gypsy Overture (2004 re-recording of a tune originally on the album, 'Sign of Saturn.')

(Instrumental)

After (from the 'Two Little Awakenings' sessions, 2001. Remixed 2008)

Waiting awake in a summer moon, I'm dreaming
dreaming of a life away from here
Looking up at the stars in a cloudless midnight
Imagining a day when skies are clear

And I can't sleep
as so many nights before, ignoring my year a year away
And I won't be here to suffer anymore
after surviving through these days

Waving a big "goodbye" to days of sorrow
Tomorrow will be alright, eventually
Saving a ray of hope for ever after
the last laugh, here, is saved for you and me

And I can't sleep
as so many nights before, ignoring my year a year away
And I won't be here to suffer anymore
after surviving through these days

Once in a While... (from the 'Two Little Awakenings' sessions, 2001. Remixed and bass added 2008)

...and once in a while, life offers a change
A little relief from the tired routine
of fighting the wind
trying to win a war that still remains a mystery
history repeating

And the rest, and the respite
fill the air where you stand
And the lines you've been drawing
wash away in the sand
And you finally get it all aligned
You're at home, for a moment
in your time

Like a gentle breeze through the window
blowing satin curtains in its waves
Gaze out on the willow tree
walk out to the porch swing
on a lazy summer Saturday

On the day after tomorrow
you may again be at odds with the world
But that's not where you belong
Now the feeling comes so strong
Try to hold it in your song until you reach your destination

And maybe someday life offers a change
a little relief from the tired routine
of fighting the wind
maybe to win this war and join the sunset's mystery
whispering, "You're sleeping"
Wake up where you belong.
