Indigo 03:19
There are times when it’s hard to find a way Cause when it all goes crashing, bursting, thrashing, disarray Want to climb but my feet won’t leave the ground I try to go on moving, loving, grooving, go unbound Where one and one is three I’m falling up a tree, defying gravity, in this old fantasy But one and one is two, it’s all a shade of blue I’m moving fast and slow This world of indigo Indigo Ohh I don’t know when this place will disappear But is it wrong to savor, taste the flavor, shed a tear Heading out now it’s time to get away What if I try to seize it, catch it freeze, everyday Where one and one is three I’m falling up a tree, defying gravity, in this old fantasy But one and one is two, it’s all a shade of blue I’m moving fast and slow This world of indigo Indigo Ohh

Die of Love 03:20
If I don’t die of love I wasn’t getting I wasn’t getting enough If I don’t feel alone I must be feeling I must be feeling it all Everything falls apart if you just let it Whether you want it or not Everything falls apart if you just let it So why not follow the sun? Up up up up and down down down down down and up Up up and down down down If I don’t die of love If I don’t die of love If I don’t die of love I was too busy I wasn’t busy enough If we don’t live as one we won’t be living We won’t be living for long Everything falls apart if you just let it Whether you want it or not Everything falls apart if you just let it Whether you want it or not If I don’t die of love I wasn’t giving enough If I don’t die of love

Somebody 04:01
Life can move so slow Sometimes you have to let it go Who wants to race who needs Who needs another chase If all you are is all you know Life can move so fast But we all know that it won’t last Who found some luck Who made another buck If all you are is all you know But you are Somebody somebody somebody Do believe that you’re somebody Somebody somebody Do believe that you’re loved Life forgot the rules When love was only made for fools It feels so strange when all we need is change If all you are is all you know But you are Somebody somebody somebody Do believe that you’re somebody Somebody somebody Do believe that you’re loved

One More Try 03:54
How can I recognize this place within a dream? Everything's black and white like static on a TV screen Rolling up the face of a mountain Slowing down Slowing down Everything is changing like the outline of a cloud I need one more One more One more try I tried to throw it out and look the other way Somehow I slipped and fell between the cracks within the day Rolling up the face of a mountain Slowing down Slowing down Everything is changing like the outline of a cloud I need one more One more One more try I don’t want to get it wrong I don’t want to get it wrong Somehow I saw the wrinkle in your eye And then I knew this part of life would die I need one more One more One more try

Gratitude 01:14

Be Aware 02:57
All we have our thoughts We’ve tied ourselves in knots Protected from the lives that we don’t know Please be aware Of what you’re after Be aware Of phony laughter Be aware Of all you’re holding Please be aware Of life unfolding Waking from the daze Escaping from the maze Protected from the lives that we don’t know Please be aware Of what you’re after Be aware Of phony laughter Be aware Of all you’re holding Please be aware Of life unfolding

Stranger 03:37
Broken sidewalk, standing on a pin I wonder where I’m going, I wonder where I’ve been I wonder how much longer till the street starts caving in Scarlet sunset, powder in the wind I’m a stranger I’m a fool I’m a stranger If I ever see you in this town I will have to learn to break the rule I would rather love you like a stranger Than fear you like a fool Once familiar, now I’ll never know Somehow all around me, buildings always grow I’m lost in my surroundings that I left so long ago Broken sidewalk slow my memory I’m a stranger I’m a fool I’m a stranger If I ever see you in this town I will have to learn to break the rule I would rather love you like a stranger Than fear you like a fool
8.
Solitude 02:54
If I were a lamp and you were the night I’d cover myself till dark matches light In my solitude Pretending I’m with you If I were a boat and you were the sea The longer I float the deeper we’d be In my solitude Pretending I’m with you How can I go on playing in this snow It’s freezing still believing There I go again
9.
Give It Away 03:41
Maybe I thought I was clean Wasn’t part of the machine I didn’t know that standing still would break the floor now I’m running out the door, knowing there is more Give it away Give it away Give it away I refuse to walk this line Can’t pretend that things are fine I’ve seen enough to know the fantasy is poor Now I’m running out the door have you felt this way before Knowing there is more, knowing there is more Watch it burn, try to learn A symphony of nonsense Give it away Give it away Give it away

about
