Track Name: Abracadabra
Keep your eyes closed/'til I say open them
When I count to 10/we will be back again, so
Keep your eyes closed/'til I say open them
When I count to 10/we will be back together again

We play abracadabra/while I'm far away
Miracle in my hand/'til I see you again someday

Whistle 3 times/and the wind will blow
I will catch that sound/and then you'll know it was me

We play abracadabra/while I'm far away
Miracle in my hand/'til I see you again someday

Speak to me softly/I can hear you anyplace
Lean in closely/and I'll kiss you face from here...
From anywhere

For we play abracadabra/while I'm far away
Miracle in my hand/'til I see you again

We play abracadabra/while I'm far away
There's magic in the air/so I'll see you again someday
Someday soon, someday very soon
I will see you again
Track Name: It Burns
Half empty cups of hot tea are we
Half hopeful, half waiting are we/to see, to be

And it burns/It burns
It burns/This life burns

Sitting somewhere between passionate and the mundane are we
Drinking cocktails when someone's love failed to be just when we need

And it burns/It burns
It burns/This life burns

Where's the ice that makes the swelling go down
Where's the bandage to cover these scars
I'm the ice that makes my own swelling stop
I'm my own bandage to heal my heart
Track Name: The Way It Is
You take all those old baths in shame/It just never washes off
You try and you try to scrub it away/But there's always something left

I did not do this to you/You did not do this to me
It's just the way it is

It's the way it is

No one really ever knows/What's truly right or wrong
They would have me silenced now/So I'll sing it loud and strong

I did not do this to them/They did not do this to me
It is the way it should be
A book will not tell me so/It's in our hearts that we know

It is the way it should be/It's the way it is

Don't let fear beat love

What are you hiding from dear/Why are you drowning in fear
It is the way it should be
Don't run away from something/religion cannot explain
It is the way it should be/It's the way it is

I like the way it is

Don't let fear beat love
Track Name: Say Goodbye
As the dandelions blow in the wind of the aid that I breathe
I hear you slip right past me and out that gate you leave
The latch was left undone/Your shadow in the sun
Who knew you'd be the one who can't say goodbye

I climb to the highest branch that will hold me
And look out beyond the yard
You are past my line of sight and sound
I hope my heart can reach that far

The latch was left undone/Your shadow in the sun
Who knew you'd be the one who can't say goodbye

The beaten trail between us now/Left my hands all alone
My arms can't wrap around you now/We're both so far from home

And I suddenly feel so cold

The latch was left undone/Your shadow in the sun
Who knew you'd be the one who can't say goodbye
Who knew you'd be the one who wouldn't say goodbye

Well goodbye/So long, goodbye
Well goodbye
Track Name: Just Like That
Just like that it's gone/But I'll be okay
Just like that it's gone/ But I'll be all right anyway
The wind still blows/The moon still shines
The trees still grow/So I'll be fine

We all lose something/Something we love
Some of us lose it suddenly/Some of us lose love

I looked up but I didn't see anything but a vacancy
It came out of left field...your leaving me

We all lose something...

Just like that it's gone
Where'd you go/ I miss you so
Just like that it's gone
But I'm strong

The wind still blows/The moon still shines
The trees still grow/So I'll be fine
Track Name: Maybe
I dont' know how to go/And you don't know how to leave
So maybe we stay this way for now


And maybe we dance/And maybe we kiss
And maybe we stay like this for now

I don't know how to show/And you don't know how to tell
So maybe we stay/It's just as well

And maybe we stay awake/And maybe we lie in bed
And maybe you have my heart to rest your head
And maybe we lie awake/And maybe we stay in bed
And maybe I have your heart to rest my head

I don't know how to lie/And you don't know how to cheat
So maybe we have this love to keep

And maybe we stay awake/And maybe we lie in bed
And maybe you have my heart to rest your head
And maybe we lie awake/And maybe we stay in bed
And maybe I have your heart to rest my head
