Track Name: Crooked Floorboards

Crooked floorboards and spiders creeping up these walls
Skimming ideas under here the family tree
Open was my hand, closed was the one that you gave
Fate and love stood side by side

And you denied it all
When they came to blow
I ran far from you
When the wind called my name

Caution hit the wind and the street sang with our feet
Running with the wolves and tinkering in loves delight
Tomorrow's tears fall and stream on cold winter hands
Blessed is he the one who watched the magic in the sky

And you denied it all
When they came to blow
I ran far from you
When the wind called my name

Red dancer come slide from the mystery you stand by
Into the down tempo of my heart beat
Gypsy more powerful than the thoughts that she has
She shuffles and moves through the piles of her borrowed change

And you denied it all
When they came to blow
I ran far from you
When the wind called my name
Called my name
Called my name
Called my name

See it pass
Through my fingers
Lay on my back
Waiting

Seek and I found
The crooked hearts
Fall into
A beggars eyes

Remember to open up
Your roads
All that belongs to you
Will find you

Piece together
Broken thoughts
Remove myself
From this box

Hold onto
The side of me
Under here
The naked sky

Remember to open up
Your roads
All that belongs to you
Will find you
Will find you
Find you
Find you

Remember to open up
Your roads.
Track Name: Holding Out For Spring
Holding Out For Spring
© Jonnie Murphy, 2011

Here's to feeling fine, to feeling fine
Dancing on your feet like Fred Astaire
Drunk again on the street with your sweet smile
Holding out for spring, my fingers cold

Holding out for spring
Holding out for spring

Here's to sun on your face down by the canal
Riding on your bike, birds overhead
In your eyes I'm lost, in love I do fall
Will I run this time or embrace it all?

Embrace it all
Embrace it all
Holding out for spring
Holding out for spring

Holding out for spring
Holding out for spring
Holding out for spring
Holding out for spring
Track Name: Lost At Sea
Lost At Sea
© Jonnie Murphy

I’m holding on to the side of the boat
You're storming around like the sea
Where we go now is a mystery to us both
We’re getting lost at sea

When I came to the bow
You pushed me away like I was a stranger
Well who’s playing games now?
The gift that I gave is gone

I feel a stirring in the East coming up
Purple and reds in the sky
When I leave here, I’m gonna catch that Russian boat
I’m going South for change

When I left you on that ship
Oh you came a calling
Well yeah you're playing games now
And I’m moving on for spring

I’m standing here, water up to my knees
Cursing your name to the sky
Where we went wrong is a mystery to us both
I guess we were lost at sea

Well I moved on to land
Getting there I felt like a stranger
Well Morocco will you remember me?
The day that I let her go
The day that I let her go
The day that I let her go…

Staring at the moon
Trying to get a better view
Monkey sits there waiting
To dodge the stick

The Pink Palace sits bellow
And I’m here on my cushion
Waiting for the light to end

And I’m dancing with your tears
And bells ring out in praise

Terrified
We were lost
Close them eyes
And dive under now,
Now

Boats flow down the river
And bodies float past
Leading out to sea
Theres a snake on every door
Bringing life to these lanes
Oh Bol
Bol Bum

And I’m dancing with your tears
And bells ring out in praise

And where hearts did break
They grew anew
And for what its worth
I still think of you

The skies are blue
And gone is the fear
We bled them out
A thousand miles away
Away

We pawned our trust
That day
Eyes wide we let go
Into the sea our hearts wonder
Know when you cry
Your tears fill the oceans
