Track Name: Peace Like a River
is there ever a day
I could go away
get out to the country
let time pass
sleep in the grass
and wake up rested?

would I have peace like a river?
peace like a river running through me?

did I ever tell you I lost a child
she slid down the riverbank and she was gone
and I didn't know what to tell the authorities
but nobody asked me

but I have peace like a river,
peace like a river running through me.

most of what this is
is just waiting around.

but I've been waiting and I'm waiting still
you can't push water uphill.

but I have peace like a river
peace like a river running through me.
Track Name: Vermont
Take me walking
on the street you used to play when you were young
and your brother was still alive
Quebecois weaving in my dreams I'm still asleep
summer night

You can't stay everywhere you leave a piece of your heart
cupped in your hand in a nervous blush
you can't stay everywhere you leave a piece of you heart

Tell me what it's like
to leave in the middle of the night telling your children it will be alright
I felt your feet as fast as foxes on the snow in the wintertime
staying fast, staying alive

You can't stay everywhere you leave a piece of your heart
cupped in your hand in a nervous blush
you can't stay everywhere you leave a piece of you heart

Leave me in Vermont
under the stars with a blanket of green trees
in the sweet cradle of my family
all the houses with the chairs out in the fields
now it all makes sense to me

You can't stay everywhere you leave a piece of your heart
cupped in your hand in a nervous blush
you can't stay everywhere you leave a piece of you heart
Track Name: Lonesome Dove
Lonesome Dove, flying in the moonlight
how does it feel to be the only one
to hear that voice between here and Laredo
Thunder Rolls, across the plains.

If I was free, I'd offer to go with you
If I could sing, I'd help you sing the songs
but we both know you're better flying solo
so you go on, go on.

On and on and on and on.

to the mountains,
to the ocean,
to the sand dunes,
I can't see you.

When you come home, on some misty morning
don't tell me the road broke your heart
I still hear your voice singing in the choir
you can always come home, Lonesome Dove.
Track Name: Nobalae
It's too much for me today,
watch the world fade into grey,
sunset paints the kitchen walls,
I'm undone by nightfall.

Catch me in the undertow,
drop the reins and let her go,
golden palomino mare,
tying ribbons in her hair.

Yellow light bulbs, mirror wall,
I'll be at your beck and call,
come with me to the river's edge,
hold me back from jumping in.
