Track Name: It Stays
May the morning light
Be your souvenir
In the winter time
When you're leaving here
But your Christmas tree
It doesn't leave
And it stays with me
And it stays
Take some pictures while I sleep
And I'll wake you when you're grinding teeth
Filthy dog
Left in his cage
So we show him love
And we show
And we show
Track Name: Marigold Brigade
Down by the fireside
You were still as cold as ice
Had a belly of butterflies
When you placed your hand in mine
You captured me deep in thought
With a camera that you brought
Remember when we got caught
In a vacant parking lot
To slowly settle down
Is a glorious compromise
And we share this common ground
What beautiful surprise
Listen to people pray
In a garden that we made
And we're lost in the silent sway
Of the marigold brigade
Track Name: Sunshine
Instrumental
Track Name: We're Here To Save You From Decay
Grown from the Earth
And there's a sign of life from the dirt
It's evident that God places his hands on everything
Time bends your thoughts
Into something else that they're not
So take another stab at taming your tongue, everytime
Calendars tend to lie
Everything dies
But we're here to save you from decay
If you send me below
I'll make the best of it you know
But if you take me above
I could accommodate your love
I could accommodate your love
We were on the down-slide, every time
We were on the down-slide, every time
We were on the down-slide, every time
We were on the down-slide, every time
Grown from the Earth
And there's a sign of life from the dirt
It's evident that God places his hands on everything
Track Name: Nickels & Dimes
Are you hungry for a decent meal
Well I'm sorry but there ain't no money here
But I always understand the fear
When the cold air reaches for your ears
They've been nickel & diming our senses
And they never allow us to feel them
And of course I've been taking some chances
But I'll always give you what I can
Well I woke from a dream
And my thoughts took my breath away
And I could not believe
Just how long we've been living this way
And I want you to be
Waking up next to me
Track Name: Saturday Days
Take up spaces with colors and shapes
You don't paint, you don't paint them anymore
And these are the situations on Saturday days
Pineapple curtains are purple and green
And I'm sleeping, I'm sleeping underneath
And I integrate you into my dream
Slow down you beautiful soul
And take care of what you know
You change me, you busy bee
Track Name: We Will Share Solitude
We're stepping into old unknowns
And fear is creeping in our young bones
It's easy to get lost inside of a smile
But desolation comes once in a while; unfolds
And takes you down a long road
And when we burn our candles down
And when the darkness comes around
Share solitude with someone else
When they look at you, and you see yourself
Stung, sitting there so patiently
Tongue, twisting incidentally
The sun gets lost and we wallow in the cold
The seasons stop and you're seemingly a rolling stone
Silently your love grows
And when we burn our candles down
And when the darkness comes around
Share solitude with someone else
When they look at you, and you see yourself
Do you slip away
Into a rainy day
Well I feel the same
When you go away
Track Name: True Love, My Greatest Love
True love
My greatest love
It comforts me
Track Name: You, Are The Good Sense
Commandeer you for the weekend
If you want to hang around and get some healing
Slip into your favorite feeling
When I tell you secrets while we watch the ceiling
Steadily you touched my fingers in the kitchen
Now you feel my love; it lingers
Feel it blossom like a flower
But the waiting makes your stomach sour
The country roads that we love the most
Hold our ghosts
And you can see them in the distance
Well the calendar keeps creeping
In case you didn't know
And I'm crawling down here reaching
In the bottom of my soul
And I know the pain of patience
And I know you'll see me through
When I find your light I'll bring it back to you
Well the autumn brought me good sense
When I needed it the most
Because Independence Day was ruthless
But I hate to see her go
And I wish you could have been there
And I wish I was there too
I'd be on the back porch sitting out with you
