Track Name: Country Girl
country girl

once I was a country girl
but then I got blindsided
a wildwood flower falling out
the birds all lost their calling
this must be
….a bad spell

once I had a singing father
but then he got blindsided
a tumbleweed in the wind
all his songs expired
this must be
…a bad spell

in my home town, in my own home town
my heart kicked around

once I was a country girl
and I loved the fields and flowers
big blue sky at my shoulders
tall grasses were my cover
this must be
…a big blue sky
Track Name: Just a Friend
just a friend

you’re not impressed with me
i’m not the girl that you dream about
i’m just a friend
i’m the one who gets to listen to you
talking about the goddess
who just walked in

i’m not the one
i’m just a friend

i’m the one who watches you
as you watch her walking slowly by
and wishes i was in her shoes
instead of over here
talking to you

i’m sitting and i’m listening
but, really i am wishing that one day
you’d see me through the crowd
and realize that i am the one
not just a friend
no, i am the one, not just a friend
no, i am the one
Track Name: Johnny Finn
johnny finn

oh johnny finn
where do i begin
hate is out and love is in
oh don’t you know
to suffer is a sin
go and find your love
and just let her in

johnny, johnny, johnny, oh
johnny, let your love in

her skin will be sweet
like cinnamon
her knees will be weak
like willows in the breeze
she will bend and sway
you can count on that day
oh, johnny finn
just let her in

johnny, johnny, johnny, oh
johnny, let your love in

oh johnny finn
where do i begin
we’re slipping fast
and time is thin
go and ask your old man
he’s the king
oh, he will tell you the same thing
just let her in

johnny, johnny, johnny, oh
johnny, let your love in
Track Name: Summertime
summertime

i can’t stand the summertime
warm breezes and the sunshine
summertime, you were once a love of mine

oh, i love the falling rain
sky so sad I know its name
oh, it’s a cryin’ shame

oh, I couldn’t make our dreams come true
i couldn’t bring out the best in you
i couldn’t say the things I needed to

i fell for you
summertime
Track Name: This Is My Room
this is my room

this is my room
i intend to stay here for a long time
i have no need to leave or see the world

i am content to wake up to the sound
of the birds singing in the pear tree
in my backyard

and watch my garden growing
watch how fast my little boy gets going
it pleases me and I have no need to leave

it is a good thing you don’t come around or call
i need some time to think
and get my feet back on the ground

i think I lost myself with you
tried too hard to please you
and I loved you like a dream

even though I knew it was too soon
and we’re really so different anyway
still, i think about you almost every day
Track Name: Perspective
perspective

i’m learning perspective
and where things belong
and just where to put them
when life’s going wrong

like shoes go in the front hall
and dishes in the sink
plates on the table
go to the kitchen for a drink

like love’s on a pillow
in the bedroom at night
old memories in the basement
where they stay out of sight

now, those feelings that you’re feeling
have their own special place too
it’s like sorting shapes and colours
like we did when we were 2 years old

the good ones are for keeping
the bad ones are not
anger’s for the yard sale
love’s a picture on the wall

when I get that feeling
and I don’t know where it goes
I remember my perspective
like I put on my clothes

I sort out my feelings
like colours and shapes
when you have some perspective
that’s all that it takes
Track Name: Happy Nights
happy nights

i read it somewhere, it sounded really good
if only i could take my life and stick it in that book
the story’s really funny, it’s filled with light
it’s got lots of good jokes and happy nights

i heard someone singing, it sounded really good
if only my life was filled with happy little hooks
sweet melodies with pretty little twists
where nobody ever fights
and everybody, everybody
loves to kiss
Track Name: Too Soon To Miss You
too soon to miss you

is it too soon to miss you
and too soon to be kissing in the kitchen
i would be lying if i went out
into the night without asking the question
is it too soon to miss you

and is it too soon to call you
in the middle of the night just for nothing
or will it all come crashing
we’ll, we’ll burn together in the ashes
and is it too soon to ask you

can’t you see my pretty lights
and how they shine for you
is it too soon to take a photograph of you
and is it to soon to miss you
Track Name: Power of the Night
power of the night

everything’s bristling in the night
even the soft breezes are bright
and the clouds hang heavy
and in my dreams
i’m tangled in the trees

the clouds hang heavy
and in my dreams
i’m tangled in the trees

something is shaking in the night
leaves are scratching at the sky
as I search for cover
‘cause I can’t fight
the power of
a powerful night
Track Name: Wednesday
wednesday

wednesday comes at five o’clock
i think i’m in a city i love
though my plans are rather vague
i like that here nobody knows my name

oh, i think i will find my way around
i have a map and a sense of the town
i’ll wander and try not to get too sad
like in the day when it was all that i had

when i come here i don’t make any plans
i follow the day like the back of my hand
and stretch it out as long as i can….
and go slow, baby

monday comes at 9 am
i’ll screw up my courage and dive back in
times have changes just can’t walk out the door
but i’ll pick it up where i left off before
and go slow, slow baby
Track Name: Too Soon To Miss You (demo version)
too soon to miss you

is it too soon to miss you
and too soon to be kissing in the kitchen
i would be lying if i went out
into the night without asking the question
is it too soon to miss you

and is it too soon to call you
in the middle of the night just for nothing
or will it all come crashing
we’ll, we’ll burn together in the ashes
and is it too soon to ask you

can’t you see my pretty lights
and how they shine for you
is it too soon to take a photograph of you
and is it to soon to miss you
