Track Name: Silence
there was never a time when the story line
reflected your life
more fabulous more incredulous larger than life
but i'm so glad to know how our ancestors toiled
took it in stride

you left the summer of 69
you returned in 71 with your blood on fire
and it bore a hole into your soul
and it bore a hole your daughter would know

but it feels like summer coming
it feels so warm against my skin
and don't you see me waiting for you
i'm listening now

i don't want to make a fuss about it
you see
i just wanna leave the door open
before you leave

i don't know if it matters much anymore
we never were that close and you're
as far away as ever
but i want you to know
i wish it wasn't so

and that you'd talk to me
Track Name: Clementina
Flight of the sparrow sparkle of the jewel as she soars
What else were we to do savoring our spoils of war
I deserve the life of a queen and a claim to this throne
To drink from the goblet to suck all the juice from the bone
Just a boy I devoted my life
To keep her safe to defend her right

She said oohh don’t leave me now
Don’t you go

Wrapped In red silk is a heart shaped white diamond thrown from the balcony
Into the garden a soldier’s last rite but I won’t die for you

The concertina spreads its bellows wide
Enchanting voice for all who hear it cry
I don’t wanna know
Who stays in the parlor when I’m in the valley below
