Track Name: A Night In Wyoming
If you never left this place
You might believe the world
was dust and wind and sky
The days so hard that no one
save your mother doesn't drink
You don't ask why

The jukebox floats in smoke
in the red river bar
When you drive nine miles for a beer
and your eyes turn red
and your head is cloudy
You just can't think

It's late when you check
out the horses and the hogs
and tell them to sleep
so lat the cool air
comes down from Montana
is thick and is deep

You button your shirt
standing in the red dirt
beside the barn
Watching the stars
it's night in Wyoming
and this is where the World starts
Track Name: Under The Sun (Stonedoors II)
Counting the heavy days and heavy hours
I measure out the prison of this town
And wear out stones with that desire of ours
But no desire, by walking up and down
And you are like a city full of towers
Set by a plain or river like a crown
And you are like a sunset and a star
But I am here alone, not where you are

I took my pen and added up the days
Dividing us, and meant my letter still
To tell you of my patience in delays
And how it left me neither well nor ill
But shining like that sun with fiery rays
That rushes from a cloud or climbs a hill
You rose and filled the sky with such a bliss
That I could say no more, and sent a kiss

I'll take some wax and mould your likeness there
Or roughly carve a figure out of wood
And in my exile take it everywhere
And tell it everything a lover should –
My long desire, my constancy, my care
And such bad thoughts as love may turn to good
And think it is the sweetest thing save one
Which is yourself alive, under the sun

You are the thread of gold I would unwind
Until I wind it in a golden ball
You are the gate that I must pass to find
My happiness, or find it not at all
Track Name: O Captain My Captain
Captain! My Captain, our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weathered every rack, the prize we sought is won
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting
While follow eyes the steady kneel, the vessel grim and daring
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drop of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies
Fallen cold and dead

Captain! My Captain! rise up and hear the bells
Rise up – for you the flag is hung – for you the bugle trills
For you the bouquets and ribboned wreaths – for you the shores acrowding
For you the call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning
Here Captain! dear father!
This arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck
You've fallen cold and dead

Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will
The ship is anchored safe and sound, its voyage closed and done
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won
Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
But I, with mournful tread
Walk the deck my captain lies
Fallen cold and dead
Track Name: Because I Love You
Because I love you more than any
Forgive me now for leaving you
But please understand how tired I am

How thirsty and how cold

And though I know it's only the fever
I still wish in my nightmares

I was simply the wind

Then I could speak to you forever after
Whenever the black leaves shook

Because I love you more than any
Please understand I will be as lonely
In whatever place the fever or
The Gods will take me

And even if it is not home

Please swear to me
Because you love me more than any

You will not try to follow
Track Name: Here Where You Were
In my dream
Of sweet belonging
You were my chosen on
In my sky
Of hope and longing
You were the beckoning sun
In the dark of night
That prays for some light
Before your love, there was none
But now here where you were
There's just the shadow of wings
From a disappearing bird
Here where you were
There's just the echo of a cry
Too far-off to be heard
I lost and found myself in you
I would have followed you into the farthest blue
But now here where you were
There's no one, (not even me), to hold on to
In my mind
You walked on water
In every earthly way
In my heart
You were the altar
Where I would come to pray
In my soul you were
The dawning of life
That rose in me every day

I walked with you down your longest road
I carried some of your unbearable load
And I was there to catch the tears that flowed
Track Name: If You Don't Kiss Me
The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean
The winds of Heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion
Nothing in the world is single
All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle
Why not yours with mine?

See the mountains kiss high Heaven
And the waves clasp one another
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother
And the sunlight clasps the earth
And the moonbeams kiss the sea
What is all this sweet work worth
If you don't kiss me
Track Name: Yesterday's News
I'm cold, tired and lonely
I just rolled into town
'Been told she's seeing someone
And it's getting me down
I'm gonna go right up to her and say
"Say it ain't true"
And I'll know by the look on her face
If she's found someone new

Had somebody else
Burned my fuse?
'Cause I feel like a paper that's been read
Like yesterday's news

I'm pacing the ceiling
And climbing the walls
Like a boat with no paddle
Heading straight to the falls
Is somebody else in my shoes
'Cause I'm walking around here
Like yesterday's news

What will I say
What can I possibly do
If she walks away
I guess I'll swallow my pride
I've got too much to chew

Finally I got to see my baby
She looked me straight in the eyes
She said I must be crazy
Believing in those lies
I guess there's nobody else
No more blues
Baby loves me
I'm hot off the press
That was yesterday's news
Track Name: I Marry The Bed
Finger to finger, now she's mine.
She's not too far. She's my encounter.
I beat her like a bell. I recline
in the bower where you used to mount her.
You borrowed me on the flowered spread.
At night, alone, I marry the bed.

Take for instance this night, my love,
hat every single couple puts together
with a joint overturning, beneath, above,
the abundant two on sponge and feather,
kneeling and pushing, head to head.
At night, alone, I marry the bed.

She took you the way a woman takes
a bargain dress off the rack
and I broke the way a stone breaks.
I give back your books and fishing tack.
Today's paper says that you are wed.
At night, alone, I marry the bed.

The boys and girls are one tonight.
They unbutton blouses. They unzip flies.
They take off shoes. They turn off the lights.
The glimmering creatures are full of lies.
They are eating each other. They are overfed.
At night, alone, I marry the bed.
Track Name: We Are Two (Stonedoors I)
If I could conjure shapes for you and me
I'd choose two living things that swim or fly
Two fishes tumbling in a glassy sea
Two eagles turning in a golden sky
And in those shapes we should continue free
And still in love, until the sea ran dry
The air failed, and the earth dropped in the sun
And time was ended, and we two were one

I wish there were a passage underground
That led by magic to your house and bed
So I could be beside you at a bound
When I had made the journey in my head
Then I should disappear and not be found
And neighbors be persuaded I were dead
But I should be with you in paradise
Where I could laugh and kiss your face and eyes

The kingdom of our love is like a tree
Grown from a little seed on level ground
But now it stretches over land and sea
And carries on its top an eagle crowned
Below, a tent is hung for you and me
Thick-set with rubies in a border round
That say I came into the world to serve you
And I may have your love, but not deserve you

The lover who could wear you like a cross
That gave a blessing to his neck or arm
Might travel through the world and fear no loss
Disease or danger, guarded by that charm
A thousand seas and deserts he might cross
And climb up mountains, and not come to harm
And I am safe from injury or spite
If I have kissed you for that day and night

And we are two, but neither tall nor short
And equally in love in heart and mind
And we are two, but one is every sort
Of equal faith and equally combined
Track Name: גלויה מצוירת A Painted Postcard
היינו גלויה שציירנו
בנוף קיץ מוכר ואהוב
שחפים וגם אנחנו
נתרנו נסנו לעוף

על החול שמלתך הסרתי
כפתור תלשתי מחוט
"הנה הצדף", צעקתי
והים הצמלא לגאות

ערומים ורטובים דבקנו
גל מלוח את שנינו לחך
דיג שראה אותנו
עצר הביט וחייך
Track Name: Gun-Shy
Sometimes I feel like a moving target
Like heartache has its sights on me
So I'm not moving out of the dark yet
Till some smoke clears and I can see

Somethin' in your eyes makes me shiver
Things aren't always what they seem
Don't know what it would take to pull your trigger
But it won't be so easy to cripple me
'Cause baby I'm gun-shy
(you're) gonna have to lay down your arms
If you want to get close to me
Yeah baby, I'm gun-shy
(you're) gonna have to come empty-handed
If you want to take hold of me

I know the feel of cold, cruel steel, yeah
How they set you up then shoot you down
No matter how high the hand they deal you
It's never too far to the ground

You can shoot off in any direction
Play tough on the other side of town
But it's gonna take some tender attention
To bring this wounded heart back around

'Cause baby I'm gun-shy
(you're) gonna have to lay down your arms
If you want to get close to me
Yeah baby, I'm gun-shy
(you're) gonna have to come empty-handed
If you want to take hold of me

One more hit to the heart
I'll be on my knees again
One more long shot in the dark
Be nothing but shattered dreams again
Track Name: All
Take this flesh
Take this bone
Take all I am
Take everything I own
Take what I don't give
Weak am I
Strong this love
Heart into heart
Like hand inside a glove
In your love I live
All my hunger
All my tenderness
I give all or nothing to you
Sorrow comes
Sorrow goes
Time slips away
And this love is still a rose
Soft and open in the night

In this life
In my mind
Nothing is lost
That within you I can't find
In your arms things come to life
All my hunger
All my tenderness
I give all or nothing to you
This love is born
We are saved
From a world tattered and torn
And I remember what living is for
All my hunger
All my tenderness
Givin' all or nothing to you
All love's fire
All love's foreverness
Giving all my loving to you
