Track Name: Reunion
My words get stuck on my tongue
I see my courage unspun
Don’t know where to put these nervous hands
So good to see you again
Just like it always was before

You and me make my heart leap
You and me make my knees weak
Here I am trapped inside a dream
I get so lonesome I could scream
Just like it always was before

It’s good to see you, just like it used to be

You and me make my heart leap
You and me make my knees weak
Just like we always did before

It’s good to see you, just like it used to be
I’m looking at you, all I see is me
Track Name: Disbelief
It must have been the kind of thing you don’t forget
Even I have some of it left
I was climbing on a limb, that’s how it begins
Then the light begins to dim
It must have been
It must have been

This crazy tale is mine to tell, everyone loved me so well
It’s the kind of thing you don’t forget
On the beach beneath the sun, I wondered where you had gone
It’s the kind of thing you don’t forget
It must have been
It must have been
Track Name: Happy Birthday, Man O!
Find myself in my workplace, someone speaking to me
Feel myself forming words, some words that seem to please

Man O! Man O! Man O! Man O!
How’d I get to be so man O?

Find myself in sweet embraces, feeling breath upon our faces
Find my fingers on your skin, it pulls beneath as you breathe in
Track Name: Ghost
I see you standing at the top of the hall
I hear you breathing just behind the door
There’s not a day with you that I don’t recall
I close my eyes, I turn to the wall

You say apart, we’re not apart at all
You say alone, I’m not alone at all

I feel the heat from the place that you sleep
I trace your figure with my finger on the sheets
At eight AM, when you put the water on
I feel you there, I thought you were gone

You say apart, we’re not apart at all
You say alone, I’m not alone at all
Track Name: Take the Shovel and Go
My perspective is not one that adds to understanding
Through long practice of years,
I’ve grown accustomed to the hard landing
So take the shovel and go

I put my heart to the work that surrounds me
Contentment drips from my pores
And this happiness threatens to drown me
So take the shovel and go
Track Name: I Am the Eye
I was a cup
Like a vessel
I was opened up
Filled higher and higher

I was a seer
A recorder
Take the time

I was the eye
Was an organ
Here I am
In the window seat

I was a tape
A receiver
El lapiz
A true believer
Track Name: The Keeper
You never loved the ocean
Until I taught you to swim.
That hand you're holding,
I introduced you to him.
Where did you get the idea
You could fall in love on your own?

Never thought I'd stay here
Until you said don't go.
Never thought you’d be the one who
Left me on my own.
Where did you get the idea
You could fall in love on your own?

You were for me as I was for you.
You were the keeper of me.
I was the keeper of you.

You gave me worry.
I gave you doubt.
You gave me something
I can't go on without.
Where did you get the idea
You could fall in love on your own?
Track Name: Compulsion
I woke up to the sound of sirens
I fell asleep and I woke up again

When someone's pounding on my front door
I go downstairs and I let him in

Other people have so much composure
They're put together, so together, woo hoo!

I woke up to sound of sirens
I fell asleep and I woke up again
Track Name: You Are Honest
I believed you when you said
It’s forever
You and me
But I love you the best
When I think you just might leave

In the morning
When the room fills with light
I like to reach out and see
If you spent the night with me

You were honest when you said
You were my best friend
And honest when you said
You would never speak my name again

I like you when you're honest
I like you when you lie
I like it when I wonder
What's behind your eyes that I can't see

You say you'll be there when I'm smiling
You say you'll be there when I cry
You say you'll be there when I'm falling
You say you'll be there when I die

If you think you will
Don't tell me
I'd rather be surprised

Like you're here tonight

Tonight's just fine with me
Track Name: Add One to One
Late at night in my bedroom,
If I get hungry, I eat
Each breath as tumbles hot from
You lips on to the sheet

Draw it into my mouth
Feel it swim between my teeth
Draw it into my body
Make it part of me

Add one to one
Add one to one

In the day when I'm working
I think of you where you are
Sorting out some problems
Or riding in your car

Who do speak to?
What do you say?
We're bound so closely together
And we're so far away

Add one to one
Add one to one

There's a beach
There's a bridge
There's a park near Basking Ridge
And we're filling up our map

There's a kiss
There's a cough
There's a cry so soft
And we're filling up our map

One by one by one by one
We’re filling up our map
