Track Name: Skeletons
G, Em

What's there under the covers?
What's hiding in that closet?
Well, shut the door, shut them out
Shut all the skeletons right, up
They will be there in the morning

Yeah they'll still be there
Will you find them?
Will they say hello?
Or will they just let you go?

I hope they leave you alone

All by yourself

And what's, what's in a cover?
What's in a sheet?
What's in this mind of mine?
Oh, I couldn't cheat ya

I wish I knew which way my brain waves flow
Are they on the surf or could I just, let them go?
In the tides?
Watch them flow away
Oh, they're not mine
They're going going away

See those skeletons in my closet
I see you and I think you have some too
What if they decided to just dance between them?
Maybe make something borrowed and blue
They're black blue

All those bones, those sticks and stones oh,
dance away
let them dance away
Track Name: Carved a Stone
Have you seen the river?
quiet as a stream?
have you carved a stone?
there just for me?

did you let it go?
or did you hold it tight?
did it slip from your hold?
in the moon’s light?

And I know
someday you’ll find it there
on the shore

and you’ll know that you’ve been there you’ve been there once before

we jumped in the water
and stirred up the sand
it was cold we were shaking
swimming hand in hand

oh what’s a grain of sand
but a tiny stone
does it remind you of the places
you’ve been and where you’ll go

And I know
someday you’ll find it there
on the shore

and you’ll know that you’ve been there you’ve been there once before

Have you seen a river
as loud as a dream
have you carved a grain of sand
just for me?
