Track Name: Chistochina Rose
I got a friend he is a wild one
ask anybody that he knows
He's got a way to take you places
you don't really want to go

He came back East to chase some shadows
he had cast a long time ago
Just to find that once they've laid down
shadows don't get up and go

CHORUS:
Ain't it funny how life spins you around?
'Round and 'round like driven snow
Up North he goes where wild rivers flow
With his Chistochina Rose

Well they say in every city
there's someone special you should know
But the trick is take them with you
and just never let them go

Now my friend he found that someone
He's got a family and a home
And he lives up by that Wrangell
where that Copper River flows

CHORUS

I know one day I'll go to see him
and we'll raise a glass or three
And we'll laugh about them shadows
how in the end they set him free

He will show me his mountains
How they frame Nabesna Road
And we'll look down that long valley
And watch that Copper River flow

CHORUS
Track Name: New Home Found / New Home Reel
Woke up one morning
on the wrong side of the American War
I'm a Tory
can't live in New York anymore

Stood with my father
well we stood for King and Queen
Now we're fleeing
always hoped I'd see New Orleans

CHORUS:
But now I'm sailing on a sloop Novia Scotia bound
Old home lost and new home found
I won't feel right 'til my feet are on the ground
Old home lost and new home found

To honor our service
we won't want for seed or soil
Place where we're going
reap the harvest of our toil

And they tell me
hills they reach down kiss that shore
And we'll live there
where the Baddeck flows to the Bras d'Or

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Sailors take your post
and watch that rocky coast
'til you see Louisbourgh town
Wind fill that sail
and stay at our tail
push us always Northward on

Our lives adrift now
like that seaweed on that foam
Place where we're going
will we ever call it home
Ask my children
maybe twenty years or more
Was it worth it
what's a fair price you pay to lose a war?

CHORUS
Track Name: Smallest Things
I sit and stare outside my window
Waiting for the light to come in
Now I can't see or hear anything
But I feel the sun rising and a warm westerly wind

CHORUS:
We get too caught up
in the pains of day to day
When the smallest things in life
can make those pains fade away
We keep on rushing down that road
to whatever lies ahead
And in the meantime
we forget the smallest things in life

Won't you take me to that far off land
I ask the wind, the rock and sand
And as I walk I try to understand
Why so many of us never stop to take it in

CHORUS

I walk up to the riverbed
The water trickles between my toes and washes away
I look to the sky... I see freedom
I dream I have wings and fly away to that far off land

Won't you take me to that far off land
I ask myself...
When I'm there I finally understand
Just how happy life can be and who I am

CHORUS
Track Name: Take All But My Time / Merry Go 'Round
Take all but my time
Take all but my time
As we spin around and around and around
No more I will find

Hear what I say
Hear what I say
Grab hold every word drifting and fading
As it goes away

Feel what I feel
Feel what I feel
Surround yourself in the moment of truth
Before it's surreal
...surreal

BRIDGE:
One day you're smiling like sunshine in the morning
Then it hits you, smacks you upside without warning

Sing what I sing
Sing what I sing
Let every note just dance in the air
Let it all ring

Cry when I cry
Cry when I cry
I know some days will be tough in the end
I know you'll get by

BRIDGE:
One day you're laughing like life's your long lost brother
Bang it hits you, folds you over like no other

Take all but my time
Take all but my time
As we spin around and around and around
No more I will find

Hear what I say
Hear what I say
Grab hold every word drifting and fading
As it goes away
_____

I'll hang right on as the world goes down
On that merry-go 'round
I'll hold my ground no matter where I'm found
On that merry-go 'round
Hear that sound spin 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round

I'll do what's right as I spin through the night
On that merry-go 'round
I'll stand with good as I know I should
On that merry-go 'round
Hearts they will pound as us riders we bound
'Round and 'round

CHORUS:
Or have I spun too far around
Mesmerized by that spinning sound
Or don't I even know, as I go
Around... around...

I will be true as I ride with you on that
Merry-go 'round
I'll always know now where I should go
On that merry-go 'round
But time it will tell, probably just as well
As we go around

CHORUS
Track Name: Early May
Walk along the path we go
I see you turn and smile
At the water's edge we turn and breathe the air

The sun is warm your hands are cold
The birds sing our song
I can fly as high as them today

CHORUS:
And so it goes that's life taken day by day
And it feels that I'm so blessed it seems insane
And we find any reason to laugh and play
And we go through the seasons
And circle back to Early May

Then comes June so does our first
She brightens up our world
She sings and dances, so do we and I love this time

The winter snow falls soft and pure
January brings a boy
My senses sparkle when I see him smile

CHORUS

The sun is warm your hands are cold
The birds sing our song
I can fly as high as them today

CHORUS
Track Name: Cool Mountain Green
It's a color that's not a color
More a feeling you might have
When the light invades the shadows
And dark hues draw you in

It tugs upon you and your loved ones
Takes you right around the bends
Where some river meets some wooded hillside
And bathes in its serene

CHORUS:
Cool mountain green...
Cool mountain green...

Might be miles up that highway
Or some center-city park
Might jump before that sunrise
Or lag slow behind the dark

It has no common form or feature
Paints on your canvas fresh and clean
It seems to help us with our trials
A mental wall on which to lean

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
In the comfort of this feeling
Wrap yourself from head to toe
And lay there naked in its shelter
And knowing only that it means

CHORUS

So sit back in its beauty
And relax in its scenes
Let its light invade your shadows
And let it's dark hues bring you peace

Cool mountain green...
Track Name: I Just
I just can’t see
Where the lines drawn on me
I don’t know where to go
I just can't feel
The way I did when things were real
I can't find my way home

CHORUS:
I can build a boat of hope and fears
And sail it on a sea of tears
Right into the sun
And I might pitch and I might roll
And life is sure gonna take its toll
But I don't really, I don't really care

Come take my hand
Lead me across that promised land
So I can live once again
Sun shine upon my face
Warm and bright in my dark space
And I'll walk in the light once again

CHORUS:
I can build a boat of hope and fears
And sail it on a sea of tears
Right into the sun
And I might pitch and I might roll
And life is sure gonna take its toll
But I don't really, I don't really care

CHORUS:
So there it is you have it all
I'll take the blow I'll make the fall
Knowing that all comes to pass
Through the feel and darken line
My promised land will come in time
I'll be there, I'll be there

I know I know life goes round
Cycles new then life abounds
Now I'm ready to move on

It's time
Track Name: Sun Broke
Sun broke that horizon
And through tired eyes
I learned that I made you sad last night

It ain't the first time
That I woke to that sunshine
And I had to face my words from the night before

We've been together
Through pain and whatever
Stared down those demons that knocked upon our door

Hold onto my hand
And we'll walk through that warm sand
And we'll watch that sunset low
Right across that bay
And come what may

The words they are flying
While I'm still trying
To find out who and what I should be

We'll go down life's highway
And be damned how the world plays
Knowing full well we made our choice
So long ago

Hang on with both hands
Cause I don't have no grand plan
Just to have you by my side and not go away

Now we've been together
Through pain and whatever
Stared down those demons that knocked upon our door

It ain't the first time
That I woke to that sunshine
And I had to face my words from the night before
I'll say no more
