Track Name: In the Blue
Caught in the eye of the storm
It was a far cry from warm
And a long way from home
All alone in the blue of the fire
Oh that burn ing desire to belong

Now my bones rattle like windows
Every time that the wind blows
From the east
To have come upon a place where every tree
Has lost every leaf
So vast and so barren
Traversing the landscape of grief

Oh! In the blue of the fire
That burning desire to see
Out from the eye of the storm
That the light in your eyes
Ts a star and the light in your eyes
Ts the star that is guiding me on
Track Name: Enough
Sometimes I wish we could say what we mean
Instead of binding our hands and trying to swim up stream
Then the way could be easy
And the road wouldn't seem so rough
You could say you had reason
Oh, and that would be enough

Sometimes the lights will play tricks with your eyes
Casting shadows more than twice the size
Makes the night seem so scary
Makes the road seem so rough
Carry all you can carry
Oh, and that should be enough

But all across the evening
We could feel it in our bones
Something sent you reeling
Through the realm of things unknown
It's just the weight of all the things
You call your own

Sometimes I wish we could just understand
Instead of testing the water
Or trying for the upper hand
But the words have been spoken
And I always say too much
Leaves you whole, but heart-broken
Because it never is enough

Night fell while we were still trying
To make sense of it all
No one seemed to recognize
The shadows on the wall
Were just our own
And we were only half as tall
