Track Name: baby's first noise
Track Name: Rootless
you look into me
you see it all
all that will be will be,
love without a fall

I have been waiting
I’ve been alone
I have been searching
for a soul to match my own

in light or in darkness
I know you the same
and all I can say now:
I’m so glad you came.

you tell me your history in all of its detail
with shamefaced humility
yet no stain remains on your glorious heart of life’s cruel indignity
only compassion has followed you out of the darkness you wandered alone
run into my arms, you beautiful rootless
make my heart your home
Track Name: hide
how can it be
that I didn’t see from the start
how you would break all the chains binding me
if would just my open heart

now everything’s new
you loving me loving you
now you’ve found the inside
nobody has nothing to hide
nobody has nothing to hide

wandering loose, a fool among fools
on a wild goose chase after love
then you came in hot, unimagined, unthought,
unwittingly sent from above

now nothing remains
of those bitter, long, lonely days
now the road lies so clear
I’m running, run with me my dear
I’m running, run with me my dear
no dream’s ever been quite so near
Track Name: a new addition
I got your voice the back in the mind,
a new addition to the cacophony,
and I’m so happy to find it lending my life its harmony

amidst the noise and caterwaul
I hear a clarion call
your heart calling out to me
lending my life its harmony
