Track Name: Recollections
Looking out at those Blue Old Mountains
I see the magic you're forgetting.
Recollections, Recollections of the truth and of you.

Looking out at those Golden Dandelions
I realize there's something more important
than running around, worrying about things
that don't matter
Recollections, Recollections of the truth and of you.

The trees can talk to me
I see disappearing things.
The Veil, the veil, the veil, the veil.

Looking out at those Richly colored skies
I see the memories of...
Recollections, Recollections of the truth and of you.

The trees can talk to me
I see disappearing things.
The Veil, the veil, the veil, the veil.
The trees can talk to me
I see disappearing things.
The Veil, the veil, the veil, the veil.

Honey, I remember you
like an old dream I knew.
Track Name: Desolate Post Burned Forest
I hope you know I'm an old soul,
I hope you figure it out some day.
Sad to say I'm not the optimistic girl
I once was, Now a woman bruised and
battered by love.

You don't have to open your mouth.
You don't have to let the sound come out.
I already know your answer.
You're leaving like all the rest,
You're leaving like all...

My heart like so many others
is a desolate post burned forest.
My leaves are charred, my branches ash.
Please, oh please bring me water
to help this fire pass.

You don't have to open your mouth.
You don't have to let the sound come out.
I already know your answer.
You're leaving like all the rest,
You're leaving like all all the rest.
Track Name: Mythos
I feel you everywhere.
I feel you everywhere.
Light or dark I can't tell.
Lord, I think I've seen Hell.

Oh, Oh, Oh...

Sailing through the seas
waves are crashing down on me.
I feel you everywhere,
Poseidon have mercy on me.

Oh, Oh, Oh...

Aphrodite, Joan of Arch, guide me
through these rough parts.
Demons, shadows, uncrossed souls
haunt me as I float.

Oh, Oh

Transient passed lights
oh, how I feel your strife.
Crawling through the realms
asking where home is.

Oh, Oh, Oh...

Aphrodite, Joan of Arch, guide me
through these rough parts.
Demons, shadows, uncrossed souls
haunt me as I float.
Aphrodite, Joan of Arch, guide me
through these rough parts.
Demons, shadows, uncrossed souls
haunt me as I float.
Track Name: Gypsy Heart
Storms brewing in my head again.
Storms brewing in my head again.
I feel it on the wind, I feel it on the breeze
I feel it calling me that oh so sweet sultriness.

Magical dreams stir my soul.
Fantasy and vision, what do you see
when you are free? When you are free?

Baptize me in the River, baptize me of my old ways.
Baptize me of narrow mindedness.
I feel it on the tide, I feel it on the rise.
I feel it calling me that oh so sweet tenderness.

Magical dreams stir my soul.
Fantasy and vision, what do you see
when you are free? When you are free?

Maybe I'll be an apache warrior,
Maybe I'll be a gypsy at heart.
Maybe I'll be an apache warrior
Maybe I'll be a gypsy at heart.
Maybe I'll be an apache warrior
Maybe I'll be a gypsy at heart.
Maybe I'll be an apache warrior
Maybe I'll be a gypsy at heart.
Gypsy Heart,
Gypsy Heart.
Track Name: Bluegrass Tunes
When I first saw your face,
You rode in to town on that big ole stallion
singing songs, and playing
Bluegrass Tunes.

When I first saw your face,
you were looking at the constellations
singing songs, and playing
Bluegrass Tunes.

Mother Mary don't know me at all
Mother Mary don't know me at all.

Upright Bass, and banjo playing
set my soul on fire.
Playing Bluegrass Tunes.

Mother Mary don't know you at all.
Mother Mary don't know you at all.

Bandit whiskey, Dancing with you
set my soul on fire.
Singing Bluegrass Tunes.

Mother Mary don't know us at all.
Mother Mary don't know us at all.

When I first saw your face,
all those wanted signs ran through
the front of my mind.
Passions do burn, so do the spirits.
Passions do burn, so do the spirits.
