Track Name: Rushing Cars
Petals turn toward the sun
'Cause they know that its the one
So the waters turn to you
Whistling a familiar tune

And the river flows down to the lake
The crashing waves do surely break
And your eyes are stained the deepest blue
I, my love, will die for you

You fumble slightly at the door
Like you've never done this before
And I am bursting at the seams
My life of half forgotten dreams

Then I watch you go down to the beach
The world is so far out of reach
But I never have seen so many stars
My life is just in rushing cars


[half chorus]
Though the leaves are dead and brown
They still haven't hit the ground
Track Name: Sparrow in Spring
Won't you come outside and see the way the sun shines in the trees
Open up your window, reach out and touch the leaves
Spring is here, winter's gone, open up your eyes
I want to know who you really are, underneath this sad disguise

Won't you come?
Come with me
Won't you fly?
Like a sparrow in spring

Winter was bitter cold, you stayed indoors
Hiding from someone you abhorred
He didn't care, no he didn't know
The way that your heart felt buried in the snow

Won't you come?
Come with me
Won't you fly?
Like a sparrow in spring

Seasons go by
Letters no longer fly
'Tween you and I

Now you're fine, now you're okay, free, away
And I am the one with nothing left to say
Please won't you come and release me from this spell
As you well know dear, it is a living hell

Won't you come?
Come with me
Won't you fly?
Like a sparrow in spring
Track Name: Trail in the Trees
The grass under your feet
Bends and it hits the ground
Showing them the way
Not making any sound

And I following will
Try in vain to right the blades
Disturbed in every way
Every piece astray

Just come and see
The trail in the trees
Where you ran away
That winter's day

And in a small house
On the edge of a lake
You'll make yourself a home
This is all that you can take

And when they find you
They will fail to understand
You never were the one
You were never in command

Just come and see
The trail in the trees
Where you ran away
That winter's day

Track Name: Hometown Beat
Cross the street
Stare at the skyline
This hometown is beat
But at the same time

You and I
Fit like a pair of jeans
These mountains we've climbed
Oh how high they seem

Cities fall
Into the pavement cracks
The statues they dig
Into the workers backs

The statues will
Outlast us all
And just like us
They're standing firm and tall
