When Autumn Blooms (free) 02:06
When autumn blooms A fragile light hangs in mid-air. Crisp sweet smells beckon you To an afternoon long and rare. Bathed in red and gold Our breath lays bare our desire. Hands warm hands, socks warm feet As the pale sun retires. How dear to spend a green night Looking out and above. How strange to feel unguarded As the stars stare back at us. Only sallow leaves on a black wet ground, Caught in a draft and gentle gyre As the world spins round.

I Never Knew 02:22
A life so sweet I never knew Until truth be told I fell in love with you Crickets sing to stars above And now I know just what they’re singing of This night, this kiss, this everything Nothing will ever ever be the same Oh yes my love! I never knew! And I’ll never never find another you! The winds caress the willow leaves And softly softly lull the tree to sleep And gentle stirs the stream below A peacefulness few ever ever know But what tenderness there is to find When you softly press your lips to mine Oh yes my love! I never knew! And I’ll never never find another you!

Bertrand Hustle (free) 01:57
If your socks don’t fit so tight When you shake your feet each night Then step up, listen, ‘cause I’ve got the dance for you Suppose you’re dancing any style One-step, two-step, sweet or wild, Except for the dance that’s the dance you’re gonna do That is how you Betrand Hustle A paradox of Mr. Russell It takes brains more than it takes muscle So knock that bee right out your bustle If you want to impress your date And you’ve heard what I relate Then do the dance that’s the dance no one can do Other dances all exist But logic never gets you kissed So forget everything that’s a thing you thought you knew Think of any dance you like With a partner, with a bike And do anything but the dance you’re gonna do That is how you Betrand Hustle A paradox of Mr. Russell It takes brains more than it takes muscle So knock that bee right out your bustle When your proofs are yielding doubt And you find your cheeks a-pout Just do the dance that’s the dance no one can do

Medea 03:02
A long long time before you were even here Before your ancestors landed on these shores The whole world suffocated on something in the air But it overtook them so slowly they kept on making more There were green things and brown things growing endlessly Spilling out their toxins into air and into sea Every word I’m telling you is true So please believe me when I say that all of this created you You can’t divide everything without leaving a remainder You can’t boil cabbage without splitting a few heads There’s just so much that you can wrap around your brain, dear So few hours we aren’t asleep inside our beds If you’re not part of the solution, you’re the precipitate Even if you swear to change, the hour’s growing late Every word I’m telling you is true So please believe me when I say that this applies you In ancient Greece they told a tale of a man with a golden fleece He had a wife and kids but decided to trade them in The first wife she wept and wailed and couldn’t find no peace For revenge she took her kids aside and did them in The people speak in horror of this woman going mad But deep inside each one of us is a Medea who’s been had Every word I’m telling you is true So believe me when I say that this could happen to you

I Don't Roll Like That (free) 03:35
If you wanna settle down like the butterfly and the bee Then you gotta make those plans without bumblin’ me If you want a picket fence and a garden out back Then you gotta understand I don’t roll like that The sun’s out shining bright and there’s a gentle wind The song of the bird’s calling out to who cares that it’s spring again If you insist on spoiling the hour and having this chat Then I gotta make it clear that I don’t roll like that I can’t stand staying still, I can’t bear cloudy days If all roads lead to Rome, I’ll make it on the way I ain’t promised you a thing, don’t let me hear you say On a day, on a day, on a day like today Pretty young couple steppin’ outta the church just fit to burst If you see me wearing them shoes then prepare to be hurt If you want to have, hold, love and depend then get a cat Cuz you gotta understand I don’t roll like that

Listen to the clash of titans In the spray upon the cliffs Hear the alabaster crashing Watch the porcelain set adrift Oh, the order of tranquilities Beyond the realm of possibilities You know that the opposing thumbs Of the Earth might be dumb But they’ll argue ‘Til arguing’s through One and one is two undeniably But you wouldn’t disagree When two is split most violently One may never get to three Oh, the order of sequentiality Not among our specialities You know that the opposite tides Of debate can’t subside So they’ll protest ‘Til all are at rest
