Track Name: Bonkers
forever, forever ever after
a boy a girl and bats in the rafter
so remember before you throw in your cap sir
i can't promise you a thing except maybe laughter
look, i promise you the next line i sing is true
i'm cuckoo

but we'll find all the holes and fill them with plaster
chase dust bunnies down the hall where they can be captured
i'll invite all my bats down from the rafters
the mice will run around and we'll play their trappers

everything except my love for you is true
i said that backwards
Track Name: West Philly Misses You
you miss west philadelphia
and west philly misses you
clark park has grown lugubrious
and the cats here have all turned blue
the porch sale where you sold your stuff
is hoping that you'll move
back to west philadelphia
and come home soon

you miss west philadelphia
and west philly misses you
and all those cherries that you love
they're pits now and homesick for you
the giant roaches are doing fine
in fact their much improved

but the rest of west philadelphia
is depressed and homesick for you
Track Name: Ringing Ears And Beating Hearts
Emails exchanged about top ten record lists
Years of delays an intensive pen-pal-ship
and the beating of hearts beneath ringing of ears
here's looking forward to ten more years

travel arranged for the weekend of april 6th
staying out late, in the morning a first kiss
and the beating of hearts beneath ringing of ears
here's looking forward to ten more years

ten more years of music film and art
ten more years of ringing ears and beating hearts

kittens at play
she's knitting a hat and scarf
he's been cycling all day
and then finally when it's dark
there's the ringing of ears and beating of hearts
and she's looking forward and he's looking forward
to the beating of hearts and the ringing of ears
here's looking forward to ten more years
to ten more years
to ten more years
to ten more years
Track Name: It Was A Great Day
faux snow on Okemo
gently down we go
on dream weaver, the south face green
or screaming demon below

faux snow on Okemo
gently up we go
on the chairlift, your lovely helmeted head
finds my shoulder in the cold

and the faux snow never looked so beautiful
and the faux snow never looked so beautiful
Track Name: Desert Island Baby
I'll be your desert island baby
you be my desert island beau
and i know you'll never leave me
because there's nowhere else to go

i'll be your desert island baby
you be my desert island beau
and i know that you're the one for me
because there's no one else to know

and we'll look with pity on those in the city
they'll never know the happiness we know

I'll be your desert island baby
you be my desert island beau
and i know you'll never leave me
because there's nowhere else to go
Track Name: I'm Always Home With You
from new jersey to the bay
from the mountains to the caves
from the forests to the streams
from the deserts to the ocean deep

wherever we explore you're the one i'm searching for
it's true i'm always home with you

from powel street to red wood grove
from the mission to who knows

wherever we explore you're the one i'm searching for
it's true i'm always home with you

wherever we explore you're the one i'm searching for
it's true i'm always home with you
Track Name: Just Take It Easy
just take it easy
on this breezy afternoon
just take it easy
you're completely overdue

so please turn off your phone
so i sing you something soft and slow
and we'll dance while the lights go low

just take it easy
come and meet me after class
we'll resist our to do lists
we'll walk shoeless through the grass

so please turn off your phone
so i can sing you something soft and slow
and we'll dance while the lights go low

so please turn off your phone
so i can sing you something soft and slow
and we'll dance while the lights go low
Track Name: My Paintbrush And I
each sleepless night my paintbrush and i
greet each muse as she comes as she comes
one by one

for my heart is young and my soul is old
my imagination is filled with unicorns and mermaids wondrous to behold
and i greet each muse as she comes
my paintbrush and i one by one

i've learned happiness is filled with bristly tips
and were i to slumber i'd be remiss
for i greet each muse as she comes
my paintbrush and i each sleepless night one by one
my paintbrush and i each sleepless night one by one
Track Name: Gemma At A Milestone
this year marks a milestone
and from here we can see the road
how it winds up above and rolls below
and leads us here to the milestone

and find successes in your art
on the path that you choose

gemma, find your truest love

gemma, have resilient heath
take good care of yourself

gemma, have resilient heath

this year marks a milestone
and from here we can see the road
where we rise up above and fall below
and arrive here at a milestone
Track Name: How Are You?
when we sleep –i sleep
when we dream –i dream
our impossible lucid dream
of living in a practice space
of living in the library with me

like those holes in our favorite clothes
like the universe, iguanas and
our impending sense of

Track Name: I Can't Remember How We First Met
I was told that I'd know
and I did, I suppose,
chandlers were aglow
in the ballroom below
I would have noticed your face
it would it seem out of place
I would offer my hand
you would take it and then
I think of you, I close my eyes
baby no matter how hard I try
I can't remember how we first met

was there something I said
that I ought to regret
did my heart skip a beat
were there seeds in my teeth
were there stars in my eyes
on the beautiful night
will it come back to me
like a lost melody
I think of you, I close my eyes
baby no matter how hard I try
I can't remember how we first met

and subsequently we've been moving town to town
and incidentally they tore that ballroom down
and all that's left me is the vaguest memory
of a melody by i don't know where all the notes are supposed to go

but I know the music was right
on that beautiful night
a pretty girl in a band
reached out, took my hand and
I think of you, I close my eyes
baby I don't think I'll ever stop trying
to remember how we first met
