Honeymoon 01:10
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
2.
See the Sea 03:19
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
3.
The Huntsman 03:31
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
4.
Sakonnet 04:26
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
5.
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
6.
Lyonesse 03:02
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
7.
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
