1.
Some days when I awake I find my body light and hollow the room is alive with song and I can hear but I can't quite follow your day's begun - your smile's upon my face and I'm undone - like a stone that rolls away way down the face of the mountain down down to the valley to dream of the faraway the far-from-here and the mountain calling always....... I never know the sun goes down - I only know that every morning is only a breath away and days arrive and I get no warning - just reappear your smile's upon my face all luminous while I'm here - but the glass is breaking always
2.
Play Another 04:23
Play another play someone say something all day long don't go out without this charm, this flame so blue to keep you just above the ground when the world is winter oh the winter's here again, it's here again....
3.
You might look out - you might just live in a world of falling things where does a girl begin? for even the wind in the trees sings for everyone - sings for everyone and leaves you without your name.... You might look up - you might just find your face in the falling rain land in your place again as the rain falls down to the ground below Begin again and listen in again for the streaming leaves bring you an air so fine they're singing it low all this time "o magnify - o magnify" all this time You might recall some sunny day this other world of falling things, raising your face.....and then I might fall calling your name as I'm streaming by
4.
Fade the days out..... only evenings bring me something I'll remember every evening we go strolling out of the house and all the way down to the shore where the open air and the breathing sea and the wheeling night can unfold us both till we shine like stars once more....... every evening we go strolling out of the house and all the way down to the shore
5.
6.
You are the roar you are the surge of sirens at the door you are the radiant heat behind the heart beat you are the call to war your face is aflame I gaze and gaze again - fire in my veins ablaze again Born of sea, I rise on the sea air born of a wave and a breeze on a turquoise day flung free by the blue green.... sometimes I wish, I wish I was born of sea so I could gleam and swim and dive and shimmer wave after wave oh but I was born red gold to this gaze of flame - we burn and we burn all day.... even as I blaze I will sing you love songs and praise for when I call for somebody, somebody brings me my cup of joy

8.
Jewelled eyes dear Anne you rival your chores again like the waves on a strand and all that time goes by but it's in the way you sigh as well as in the way they race racing along this beach as young boys do
9.
The Diamonds 03:27
These were his words - how could I imagine otherwise? here's what I heard, staring like a child into his eyes... "How many times? how many more times shall I say such words? shall I say strong words of love? Shall I, or fly above? Fly like a bird back towards the middle of the lake - see down below the diamonds in the middle of the lake forming a call forming a high call...." One glance for me. one window open wide. diamonds every time I fly.
10.
Celandine 01:43
11.
Still Unseen 04:09
a door's ajar - there's where you are floating in a bar of light waiting so quiet nobody knows - but I know you.... you'll wait for me, wait till I turn around before you move towards before you glide all the way home.... home - where there's no spectator home - where the fires have been burning all along your home - refuge of warmth and of clemency lay down your camera, oh cast it away for a world in a fire is a fire in this world and the overdue and the left unsaid and the still undone become a film in a flame, then a glaze.... and then history
