Track Name: Mountain Song
In the shelter of your evergreens.
In the trickle of your streams.
The cold water of your canyons, warming up in the mid afternoon.

I'm un-filtering your answers, taking in every breath
I set aside all my judgement, and you rushed in like an old patient friend. I come and go, but you always stay the same.

In the wildness of your nights, in the thunder of your clouds. To burn it all in a field of fire, or rain down in a cold windy storm.

In every corner I see you smiling. Where I never looked before. On the tips of my fingers, in the water as it drops into pools. I come and go but you always stay the same

So when I climb up to your ledge again and give my hand we'll you take me in.
And when the cold of night burns my skin, will you lead me to the place within to warm my body.
Track Name: Julian Hotel
They make you breakfast here and turn your eyes from the world.
By the comfort of their old fashioned ways and the patience of slow careful pace.
The clock is stopped and no one cares.

All the puzzles and the tea, books of poetry on the shelf.
And there's a postcard from 1922.
The hostess greets you she brings you to your room,
In an old familiar way

And what seems important, it just falls off your shoulder and takes you over to the chair by the fire

Edgar Allan Poe, pie a la mode, the day is older now.
She is sleeping softly in the light.
The tiny words are growing heavy on my eyes.
And tomorrows just another day.

And what seems important, it just falls off your shoulder and takes you over to the bed by her side.

And what seems important, it just falls off your shoulder and takes you over to the old wooden porch

Then take a walk by the trinket shops and feel my feet rising up then drop. Like a summer rain back to the river, a state of mind like a floating feather. Then get my fill at the cider mill and come back in to the old hotel, like a summer rain back to the river, a state of mind like a floating feather. It's alright.

They make your breakfast here.
Track Name: Green Mountains (The Other Side)
Wake up little one, its almost the noon day sun
We've been on the road, since early morning
Look out ahead you'll see, a river behind the trees
Don't you wonder, where it's going

As we go traveling on, everything around us will sing our song. Well it's right on the other side of the Great Green Mountains

Don't you fret little one, our journey is almost done
We'll be there before you know it.
Look at the sky before ya, its nothing but blue and yellow. It's right over the spot of where we're going

As we go traveling on, everything around us will sing our song. Well it's right on the other side of the Great Green Mountains

She is waiting for us now, in a warm winter house, where the snowbanks are as high as your head
The smell perfume on her clothes and dinner on the stove. We can just pretend we're already there.

As we go traveling on, everything around us will sing our song. Well it's right on the other side of the Great Green Mountains
Track Name: Bird's Eye View
What are you doing inside?
No need for shelter today
You can feel the wind on your feathers
Coming straight from the sea

I can see all around
Everyone's out here but you
Seems a shame to be working
So hard on yourself, so hard on yourself
When it's easy

Why don't you climb out the window
Let your feet feel the ground
You can hear the willows whispering
Everyone's song

I was just on the treetop
I saw the most beautiful sight
You could see the colors dancing into the light
Into the light

But you can't see it if you don't want to
Track Name: Cole Pond
I remember every summer driving down that road.
Sit in the back with my brother, watch the countryside unroll.

With the dog and the cooler, and an evergreen breeze. The sun rising up the mountain side, it's blinking through the trees.

And the water shines like a diamond, and chases us down, out over to the landing where the wheels break the ground.

We'd close the door, and we'd run to the grassy shore, back again in the heart of Cole Pond

And a fire built in the evening on a bed of branch and stone, cracking sparks and stories, so good to be away from home.

We'd wake up and go fishing, before the early fog breaks and cast out into the deepest dark, watch the line and wait.

And we'd wait a long, we'd wait till the nightfall comes. Back again in the heart of Cole Pond

Just a hidden cove, that no one knows, just the locals here, it's been that way for years. An old dirt road that's overgrown. Embedded history in the forest and the stone. And it feels like peace, yeah it feels like peace, yeah it feels like peace.

Salamander's and dragonflies, the glow of campfire in the night, an Indian summer where the nights get cold, so simple then, I remember those days.

Hiking trails and skipping rocks, watch the ripple from the docks. An Indian summer where the nights get cold. So simple then I remember those days.
