Track Name: Honeyguide
all my life I've always run short
all my short life I've always run
lost and won in right and wrong
in the long run life goes on

sing to me of all so sweet
most of all the gold I seek
give me this my daily honey
money, honey, money, money

it's a matter of time, not a thing you say now could sway me
not from up in my tree, now I'm out here and hungry
my lock, my key
my wandering belly

I got nothing to hide; I wear my mind like the feather white I lead you by
every time your pipe rings like heaven on the daylight
you're my honeyguide and I'm so hooked on the sweet inside
and now it's been so long since you came out to lead me along

I'll climb this tree
you hide I seek
your life with me
my love of honey
Track Name: Little Lie
run little lie
run like a child
run like we’re going out of style

into the heart of this would
to the end of what could

and if in love
leave a light for me

mmmmm oh

run little lie
run like a child
like we’re coming home

in the night’s
pouring rain
from our love
making pain

in my dream I’m cold
taking off my gold
waiting on a cue
covered up in blue

so run little lie
run like a child
run like we’re running out of time

and until the dark of your grave
be a light in my cave

mmmm mm and

run little lie
run like a child
like we’re running home

back from the dead
like we read
toeing the line
lying in this bed
like we’ in love

waiting on a cue
covered up in blue

so when in love...
Track Name: Call You Mine
lift me up on
a kindling throne
fill my cup by spilling your own
build me up and
put me down
brim it with jewels
and shatter my crown

what is yours?
what is mine?
what’s our line?
will we draw
out before
we unwind?

if you had wings to where might you fly?
I would climb all the way up through the sky
now I am grounded, down by your side
though it’s only half true, may I call you mine?

any stick I would throw on the fire
if it makes me the man you’d admire
and when the time comes that one’s gotta go
maybe now won’t feel so on our own
until I come back around like a ring
you will know by the song we shall sing
you will know by the song
Track Name: Silver & Gold
what is this coming to?
what kind of failure lets this one through?
oh, how did it get so bad?
in what seems like so little time in the end

oh, why
why am I blue?
why, why am I
here without you

I get so twisted up
bent out of shape
stuck in a rut
I wish I could
let it go
wish like my life is beyond by control

so why
why don’t I realize
hmm what can’t I see?
from down on my knee

so there you are, and here I am
until the time we meet again
and I’m lifted up, right beside
and the two of us shine
like stars in the night
or like silver and gold
or so I am told
mmm silver and gold
or so I am
