Track Name: Send Me A Sign
VERSE 1
Toss and turn in the middle of the night
roll to the left, roll to the right
you're not mine so I hope its no sin
to let my mind go wanderin'

PRE-CHORUS 1
Do you wonder?
why all my time is spent with you?
I just might be deaf and blind
cuz I haven't got a clue

CHORUS 1
Send me a sign
if you'll be mine


VERSE 2
It was so easy when we were young
spin the bottle and have some fun
Was that a wink or just dust in your eye
start of a laugh - hint of a cry?

PRE-CHORUS 2
I just wonder
'bout all the time ya spend with me
Laughing and crying, contemplating destiny

CHORUS 2
Send me a sign
if you'll be mine
if you'll be mine

BRIDGE
Well we danced on the beach where porpoises played
The sun was warm i wish we could have stayed
drift out on the very next wave
to say "so long", say "so long" (x2)
to the real world
to the real world


VERSE 3
Sooner or later... our eyes will meet
I just might stutter, trip over my feet
I don't know what possible words i might say
if you'll go or if you'll stay

PRE-CHORUS 3
But in the moment
I trust i'll know just what to do
if you're the one for me
I know you'll know it too

CHORUS 3
I'll send you a sign
Please be mine
I'll send you a sign
Please be mine
Track Name: Migration
It’s five after five, I’m off in a flash
My work is all done and I’m ready to dash
Right into my evening, I’ve got to relax
Cause soon I’ll be sleeping, and morning comes fast

Most days I spend driving between here and there
Because I don’t have a free moment to spare
I’ve got to move quickly, can’t take time to stare
At the miracles happening now, everywhere

(Chorus):
I don’t take much time to do this
No, I don’t take much time to do this
(2x)

I crest up the hill and I glance at the view
The ocean spreads out, endless silver and blue
But I gotta keep driving, my workday is through
And I’m on my way home, where I’ve got things to do

I might want to cook, and then I’ve got to eat
And maybe I’ll clean up, and put up my feet
Or maybe I’ll make up a song or a rhyme
About missed opportunities, having no time

(Chorus)

(Instrumental Bridge w/voices)

But this day is different, I’m off my routine
I needed to take in a different scene
So I’m taking my bicycle home through the green
The air’s feeling chilly, my soul’s feeling clean

It’s March, I remember, the whales could be here
On the hidden migration they make every year
I take a deep breath as I see water fly
A grey whale is spouting as traffic flies by

(Instrumental build)

(Chorus)

(Instrumental outro w/voices)
Track Name: She Runs Away
VERSE 1
All the summers that she spent
counting stars have come and went
buried under bills she couldn't pay

The calla lillies line the fence
to cover years of negligence
the landlord smiles and turns the other way

INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE

VERSE 2
the lights are low, the bare bulbs show
listening to the radio while she
beds her kids back down to sleep

the posters hanging in the hall
cover holes punched through the wall
she cries aloud, this is not how it's supposed to be

PRE CHORUS
Believe me I understand
hold my breath and hold your hand
close my eyes and pray for rain to
wash away all of your pain

CHORUS
She Runs Away
She Runs Away

VERSE 3
Wishing for a second chance
playing cards on a cash advance
a lousy draw whatever your luck may bring

Clutching dreams of Hollywood
doing lines trying to feel good
even though inside she knows it's all too late

PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Slippin' away
a little bit every day
they walls are closing in
the bills are due again

Slippin' away
a little bit every day
was there more that I could do
to be helping you?

Slippin' away
a little bit everyday
the walls are closing in
the bills are due again

CHORUS 2
She Runs Away
She Runs Away
She Runs Away
(x2)

VERSE REPRISE
All the summers that she spent
countin' stars have come and went
buried under
buried under bills
she couldn't pay
