Track Name: Evolution
EVOLUTION

trees tremble in the breeze
while I stand divided
i breathe
in melody
but I need
the moment
to be decided

cause I’ll wait
for the day
when I’ll be
when I’ll be great
according to some standard
i didn’t initiate
but I wait
i wait
i wait

sense flown
confidence blown
surprisingly shown
i linger
the girl in me
waits unabashedly
but the woman
no the woman
no the woman
no the woman
she don’t want
to be here

yet she’ll wait
for the day
when she’ll be great
according to some standard
she didn’t initiate
she’ll wait
she’ll wait
she’ll wait

for something to touch me
like rain falling on a spring leaf
nourishment so deep
i can feel it in my bones
i can feel it in the soles of my feet

the wind is
lapping at the sea
inviting you and me and you and me and you under
oh we inhale eternity
we don’t even pause to wonder

or wait
for the day
when we’ll be great
according to these standards
we didn’t initiate
will we wait
will we wait
we won’t wait

i can’t wait
i won’t wait
i can’t wait
please don’t wait
you won’t wait
please don’t wait
we won’t wait
we won’t wait
we won’t wait
Track Name: Enough
gotta find something
to bring relief
or else i'm disappearing
into my own heart beat

is it all undefined
is it localized in my mind
will the emptiness just fall in line
will desire decay through time

standing in the clearing
of another solitary week
in everything i'm fearing
is empty silence and speech

is it all undefined
is it localized in my mind
will the emptiness just fall in line
will desire decay through time

I kept myself all bottled up
kept my soul sated and stuffed
into forms created with no love

but i've finally had enough
i've finally had enough
i've finally had enough
i've finally had enough

feels like i'm stranded
on a desert isle
don't know how else to describe this
loneliness on the inside

is it all undefined
is it localized in my mind
will the emptiness just fall in line
will desire decay through time
Track Name: Gravity
what is this gravity
pulling me away from free
whenever i'm about to find
my way back up

i watch the turtle doves
they live inside the banyan tree
they can fly and they can land
it seems so easy to them

i'd like to be that free
feel the wind under me
but lately i'm so busy running 'round
that the wind instead
well she pulls me down

every morning i wake up
and pour myself into a coffee cup
i look outside and i can see
the doves the trees the sea

then i jump into my car
and drive and drive well it's pretty far
so i can buy the things i need
and hope will insulate me

i'd like to be that free
feel the wind under me
but lately i'm so busy running 'round
that the wind instead
well she pulls me down

what is this body
what is this life
trying to find out
why why why why why
is turning every thing to white

trying to find out
why why why why why
is turning every thing to white

what is this gravity
pulling you away from me
whenever we're about to find
some common ground
Track Name: Troilus
you watched them latch
the ball to my chain
then looked forlorn
when they led me away
heartily denied
you'd had any say
i wish i'd known then
what i know today

i was just another
trophy to take
and so my loss
was surely your gain
oh that a man
could really tear me in twain
i wish i'd had a way to refrain

you're true as troilus in all of this
and even though you taught me how to kiss
i wish i'd had a way to resist

your every word
could command the stars
but your every glance
shows all that you are
i always knew
we wouldn't get very far
'cause you turned being a liar
into a fine art

you're true as troilus in all of this
and even though you taught me how to kiss
i wish i'd had a way to resist
you're true as troilus in all of this
and even though i taught you where to kiss
i wish i'd had a way to resist

oh that a woman could be so easily bought and sold
when will a woman be considered fully whole
when will a man give up the fight for full control
when will they both be equal

you're true as troilus in all of this
and even though you taught me how to kiss
i wish i'd had a way to resist
you're true as troilus in all of this
and even though i taught you where to kiss
i wish i'd had a way to resist
