Track Name: Crim Dell
CRIM DELL

Oh wow, you let it get away this time
But who could put a hand to it?
And who could ever say just why?

Oh well, so let it slip through with time
No use in trying to hold our breaths,
Life ain’t no deep sea dive

Crim Dell had turned into a parson’s pond
When I met you at the kissing bridge,
You said you couldn’t stay for long

Sat still, cried under the palace wall
Hey, I was really sinking then
But I’ll try to hold on (no promises)
Track Name: Bird By Bird
BIRD BY BIRD

Bird by bird, cove to cove,
Grief’s grey tooth would want to know
Why Bird won’t land – how far to go?
My Bird would stand akimbo.

Uh-oh

Burlap breath, that heave and ho
Of Bird’s bare chest you’d get to know.
The Bird can sing or Bird can shout:
Let me in or do without.

Uh-oh
Track Name: CC
CC

You want the quiet place, - The kind of easy face to
Put your fingers to and - Hold from time to time
I wouldn’t go that way - You shouldn’t go that way
I wouldn’t go that way - Don’t ever go that way

The face would watch her move - And showed its gratitude
It smiled from ear to ear - It really seemed to care
I hope you come my way - I’ve waited up for you
I hope you come my way - I’ve waited long for you

Will you go walk with me? - Would you lay down with me?
You’ve got the saddest eyes - Just like the angels do
Will you lose time with me? - Could you believe in me?
You’ve got the sweetest touch - Oh yeah you really do

The hours swelled in place - She dug the easy pace so that
She grew fond of it and - She followed wherever it went
I wouldn’t go that way - You shouldn’t go that way
I wouldn’t go that way - Don’t ever go that way

The face made her feel safe – it was her favorite way
Soon she began to purr – was it finally hers?
I hope you come my way - I’ve waited up for you
I hope you come my way - I’ve waited long for you

Would you go walk with me? – maybe lay down with me?
You’ve got the bluest eyes – just like most angels do
Will you just stay with me – just wait around to see
What’s coming round that bend – I hope and pray you do
What’s coming round that bend – I hope and pray you do
Track Name: Girl Librarian
GIRL LIBRARIAN

Girl that I knew where I lived before
When I was alone, I was going nowhere.
Gimme a chance, I could open right up
Gimme a chance

Words that I knew, how I never felt before
Spitting out bones, I was walking to somewhere
Given a chance, I could open you up
Given a chance

And yeah, I’m checking you out
But I’ll bring you right back
Ya know it’s not a big deal
So just try to relax

And should you wanna get down,
I can take you in the back
Ya know these other motherfuckers
Plain forgot how to act

Girl from the stacks I lay on the floor
Was nice to be alone, but I wish I had a care
Gimme a chance, I could open you up
Gimme a chance

Girl of my dreams, have we met before?
I won’t try to hide; I ain’t going nowhere
Gimme a chance, let me open you up
Gimme that chance

I still look up, I try hard not to look up
I’d track your ghost through the fog
