Track Name: Honeymoon
Honeymoon


Oh my baby & me
went to sea
to an island, for to stay
a little while

But the sun hid it's pretty face away
& the sky was cold & gray
& the wind did howl
Track Name: See the Sea
See the Sea

All the world is hoping
with me
but I don't know your voice
you are youthful & lovely
I guess we
two are not a pair, though I'd like to be

If only to be safe in that I'd met my match
my pretty dream
is very real
even if you are just a passing thing

Walk with me, see the sea
the gray & rocky beach
tell me the names of the ocean things
& I will take you with me to the woods
show you birds & trees & teach you nothing
but communion
when I kiss you let it be
like honey
gentle & be gentle with me
for my love is good, & I am kind
Walk with me, see the sea
Track Name: The Huntsman
The Huntsman

When the Huntsman came
home , it was nearly Spring
I opened my door gave him the last of our bread
but the mead I'd made
I hid from him
I didn't love him

& if you be the wolf
with the wolf-skin on your back
who howls for the night
& stares with red eyes
Will I be the bird
with the broken wing?
& will I sing?

The Huntsman lays down
with his feet upon
my white bed
& when I said a word
he threw his flint at my head
Now my daughter sleeps
out in the wood
& my son won't speak

& if you be the wolf
with the pointed teeth
who snarls when he speaks
with fetid breath

Will I be the bird
that pecks out your eyes?
& flies
Track Name: Sakonnet
Sakonnet

When the days were strings of Sundays
holding hands like paper dolls
I lived in my doll's house
but I wanted out
so I went looking for a job

I went to Sakonnet at harvest time
there was something there about the light
or the air infused with wine
& the grapes set as jewels upon the vine
upon the vine there

Simple work for idle hands, he said
So what?
Just let the sun set alone in it's September sky, babe,
you think you'll make enough money to get by?

Reeds 'round the lake the wind would make
sure to rub, then not quite touch
reeds 'round the lake the wind would make
only circumstantial if our paths ever cross

Shot my lover's arrow
where it fell nobody knew
they all said that I still loved you
& they said I'd leave Sakonnet
but it's been two years
& I'm still here
where the reeds grow & the sun
sets alone

There's something there about the light
or the air infused with wine
makes a perfume on my hands
so when I brush the dark hair from my eyes
Track Name: Little Bird that is your Name
Little Bird that is Your Name

Little bird that is your name
what I called you
& you came to me
you came to me

On a rainy Sunday
When we saw the sky
was a rainbow when you arrived & they
said it was a sign
from Heaven
Love

The sky will open for you
when you sing
& when you write your countryside
falls from your fingertips
like rain
upon the meadow

Little bird that is your name
what I called you
& you came to me
you came to me
Track Name: Lyonesse
Lyonesse

You speak with your heart
so freely, you'll have me
believing in your sweet dreams
of love. Look!

My father's house lies
burning, let loose their fiery arrows
their armies were legion

The Keep is broken

They've removed his bones from the tomb
see they are exposed now to the light
the dust the dry bones of my father

Let loose their fiery arrows
their armies were legion
the Keep is broken
Track Name: Mockingbird & Whippoorwill
Mockingbird & Whippoorwill

I'm a Mockingbird oh my Whippoorwill
Oh Whippoorwill well I will
sing your song ,sing along

To your Trinidad tamarind plum sauce skin
oh beautiful tamarind plum soft skin
oh lay me in a snow white bed

I've a walking-stick, I've a cross of gold
& a winding road up a mountainside
so many stars filled my eyes
so many stars they filled my mind
they sing

I'm a Mockingbird oh my Whippoorwill
Oh Whippoorwill well I will
sing your song ,sing along
sing
