Track Name: Calls and Hangups
It's been a long time since I've seen you coming
It's been a long time since I've seen you go
I don't have time for your wicked loving
I don't have time to be in your show

I don't have time for your calls and hangups
I can't see our loving grow
I don't need you for my only answer
You were acting up so you had to go
Track Name: Ready For Love
I've been running through the chasm of the echoes of my mind
trying to pull back the time
I've been looking through the window at the man I left behind
No I am not feeling fine

I've been hunting in the forest for old nickels and dimes
hoping to see what is mine
I've been living on the ocean where the weather is fine
hoping you'll throw me a line

My god is all that I wanted to say
You led me on and then you run away
I haven't seen you since sometime last May
You took my things and then threw them away

You claim you're ready for love.
If that's so, why don't I get enough?
Track Name: Locked Up
Keep your love locked up so deep
Inside the chasm of your heart
Just in case the other tries his best
To keep us both apart

Your love is like a boat that's foundering
I'm flying from here on a broken wing
I've got a hunch and I'll figure it out
Find out what you're all about
I will figure out his name

I kept my love locked up so deep
I kept it hidden in a place that nobody could reach
I would sink like a stone in a river overflown
Before I'd go and break your heart

Your love is like a boat that's foundering
I'm flying from here on a broken wing
I've got a hunch and I'll figure it out
Find out what you're all about
I will figure out his name
Track Name: Forest
Years ago the trees would remember
All the leaves they lost in December
And the forest would echo with laughter
And then they would sprout up after

Suddenly the Spring was upon us
And a row of saplings would sprout up

Bark and branch
Tree and leaf
Cut them down
Cause me grief

Roots will grow
Towards the sun
Chop them down
Leave no one

Tangled arms
Reach below
In the dark
No one knows

Bark and branch
Come undone
Chop them down
Leave no one
Track Name: The Wait
I've been a lot of places before
But what I wouldn't give to be at your door
I'd be giving up everything I have and more
So if you want me baby then you better be sure

It's the wait that I just can't take
You are fading away

There's something that I need you to know
In just a few more days I'll be coming home
The only thing between us is a way to shore
So if you really love me then you'll wait a little more

It's the wait that I just can't take
You are fading away

We will be arm and arm
And our love will grow
Forever more
Every day
You are fading away

It's the wait that I just can't take
You are fading away
