Track Name: Lucky Girl (Day 52)
lucky girl
filtered through the speckled sand
silver rings and fingernails
firelight in her open hands

lucky smoke
upside down among the rest
when she smiled and when she spoke
the light ignited every breath

like a twin
a spitting image
a life to mimic
she lives in
a window in time
she’s still on my mind
still on my mind
she’s still on my mind
Track Name: Fishing Pond (Day49)
all i want is a fishing pond
and a fishing rod
and a boy to love

but can we put a house across that pond
with a big back yard and a mellow dog
and make that dog a white tiger
and the rowboat make it a cruiseliner
and get jonny depp not just any old boy
and forget what i said about that fishing story
Track Name: Simple Hello (Day 48)
what’s all this sad poetry in your notebook boy?
i know you’ve felt down
and it’s good to get it out
yea it’s good to get it out

but these lines they don’t rhyme with the ways that i know you
that feeling will go
with a simple hello
with a smiling hello
Track Name: at the Corner (Day 44)
well that was a quick exchange
she put my money in my hand and she walked away
i guess that it’s best this way
better than before

it all was a quick idea
you turn around now and it’s been a whole year
i can’t really talk right here
meet me at the corner
Track Name: I Should Know By Now (Day 38)
ain’t one sunny day
worth a million in the shade
i should know by now
lord i should know by now

ain’t one good love
worth a million all made up
i should know by now
lord i should know by now
Track Name: Lazy Afternoon (Day 33)
lazy afternoon
i caught a stray balloon
sailed away from home
into the great unknown

she fell upon the sea
i slipped so easily
bright as solid gold
i saw her float on
it’s the same in here
we breathe the same air
the weeds become the trees
the blue becomes the breeze
Track Name: Can't be alone with you (Day 36)
take what you need
all the time in the world if you please
i could go to the moon and be back here by noon
if you could breathe a maybe

but love til that night
til you leave i will not come untied
humming the hook to the end of a comic book
when the hero takes flight
i got to confess i can’t be alone with you
can’t be alone with you
takes my feelings on holiday
like a weekend stuck on replay
i got to come clean i can’t be alone with you
all my reason loses its weight
through the ceiling and out into space

this dream it must eat or it won’t go away
like a bird at my sill
feeding until he is filled

my don’t you shine
we need out of sight out of mind
we’ll make all this dirt go back to earth
when there’s noone around to ask why
i got to confess i can’t be alone with you
can’t be alone with you
takes my feelings on holiday
like a weekend stuck on replay
i got to come clean i can’t be alone with you
all my reason loses its weight
through the ceiling and out into space
Track Name: Mouse Song (Day 13)
look at you back here now
my aren’t you proud
creeping in the corners of my roof
out of sight ain’t out of mind
heard you late last night
in your family of two

so i covered every way
to get out of this place
there’s no escaping now
no you’re safe and sound
but when i peek inside
you change my mind
ain’t right to keep you see
it’s not up to me
Track Name: Sky So Blue (Day 15)
we are going to the other side of the sky so blue
Track Name: Before I Sleep at Night (Day 10)
kept time in a marching band
for the military men
flashlight and a tin of grease
pocket knife with a spring release
covered up from head to toe
couldn’t get a steady hold

before i sleep at night
i think of you sometimes
before i sleep at night
i think of you sometimes

came round the old school hall
came through a crack in the wall
i’d turn my pockets out
just to go back there now

before i sleep at night
i think of you sometimes
before i sleep at night
i think of you sometimes
before i sleep at night
i think of you sometimes
before i sleep at night
i think of you sometimes
Track Name: Dog on my Doorstep (Day 18)
yellow in daylight why do you fade?
blue and white left behind
sure is something strange

dog on my doorstep what do you dream?
always chasing after things
when you’re asleep

can’t explain nothing these days
just can’t pin it down to something plain
Track Name: Ghost who cried envy (Day 21)
i can hear ‘em making love through the kitchen floor
but jealousy don’t live here anymore
at least for some time he’ll be gone

so i cook something up on the kitchen stove
put a record on that never gets old
and think of the times yet to come

when that ghost who cried envy
still had him some energy
he came to my window and whined til he went to sleep

he said love, you can’t lose
oh you must always win, dear
kicked him to the street and won’t ever let him back in here

i can hear as the night winds to an end
fine desire as it slowly kicks in
it’s like listening
it’s like listening to
it’s like listening to good old friends
Track Name: Jesse (Day 6)
oh jesse why’d you go and take my girl from me?
you know she was the sweetest thing i’d ever meet
oh jesse i know that you saw her first
but lord knows you never treat them like they’re worth

i bet you’re tired already
soon as she said you’re going steady
i couldn’t see it coming
i couldn’t see it coming this time

jesse lord knows you could never say no
oh now you got a brand new low
jesse someday you’re gonna have to think twice
for sweeping up another pretty thing in my life

i bet you’re tired already
soon as she said you’re going steady
she’ll never see it coming
she’ll never see it coming this time
Track Name: It's Easy (Day 5)
it’s like my troubles
go out the window
when you call me up
what’s your secret?
what’s your trick?
do you ever trip up?
it’s easy
so easy
just come outside for a minute
something to see, and you’re missing it
easy
so easy
just come and play for a minute
something to do and you’re missing it
Track Name: Kitty in a Window I (Day 9)
Kitty in a window
Kitty in a window
Sitting in a shop window
Kitty in a window
Kitty in a window
Sitting in a kitty pose
Track Name: Kitty in a Window II (Day 24)
kitty in a window
kitty in a window
once was a single cat

kitty in a window
kitty in a window
now a couple kitties nap
Track Name: Lift You Up (Day 7)
it’s quiet out here, but we don’t need any more sound
do you remember when just a word could bring you down?
it’s quiet out here, but we don’t need it any louder
do you remember when just a word would lift you up?
Track Name: Spinning Wheel (Day 14)
a spoonful of dirt
of ordinary earth
was all seemed to make
a second in a million days
the younger you feel
you hold onto a spinning wheel
and nothing ever seems to separate
nothing ever ever seems to come apart
nothing ever ever promises to break
nother ever ever seems to separate
nothing ever ever seems to come apart
nothing ever ever promises to break
Track Name: Talking Dogs (Day 29)
hey, look at all the talking dogs on my tv
look at all the walking flowers in the books i read
look at all the laces i can tie
look all the spaces i can type

nananananananana
Track Name: Your Heart's Gonna Change (Day 22)
someday maybe you’ll find what you want
your heart’s gonna change
you’ll get where you belong
Track Name: Could Be (Day 2)
been sleeping in for quite some time
straightened your shoes and read you the news
you still would not be satisfied

could work on the financial streets
come home after five and pour you some wine
that will not grant you some peace
could be in designer suits
strutting around in dolce light blue
a scientist or a fool
could not get the best out of you
could be an upper class catch
with a voice made of glass
miss cleo could declare it a match
you will say it won’t last
so tomorrow you’ll go
just like it started so quickly
so slowly it folds
and if you can’t seem to find
a good future wife
or a good talking mime
maybe then, a good woman you’ll know
could be in designer suits
strutting around in dolce light blue
a scientist or a fool
could not get the best out of you
could be an upper class catch
with a voice made of glass
miss cleo could declare it a match
you will say it won’t last
could be in designer suits
strutting around in stiletto shoes
a math whiz or a fool
could not get a yes out of you
could be an upper class catch
with a voice made of glass
you say it will last
will you say it will last?
Track Name: Ain't My Love (Day 59)
called my ma up far from home
said i turned it around
turned it all around
she shook her head through the telephone
why’d you do that now
didn’t i tell you child

it ain’t your heart
to come apart
to worry for
it ain’t your world
to come undone
anymore

but when i dialed a second call
there was a cry so wild
it cracked the kitchen tiles
a sudden breeze came through the wall
and swallowed whole
all the things i’d known

and now it ain’t my heart
to come apart
to worry for
it ain’t my world
to come undone
anymore
anymore
Track Name: Can I Call you my Lover? (Day 42)
hey can i call you my friend
hey hey can i call you my lover
hey if i call you my man
hey will you call me your lover
Track Name: Marvellous Beard (Day 47)
there once was a prince with a marvellous beard
the furriest beast could never compare
the palace seamstress said it felt like cashmere
that forest of lustrous hair
that forest of lustrous hair

one day at the feast on the terrace of kings
an eagle swept in at the sight of his chin
the mistaken bird went off on the wing
and that was the last of the prince
and that was the last of the prince
Track Name: Quick Exchange (Day 44)
well that was a quick exchange
she put my money in my hand and she walked away
i guess that it’s best this way
better than before

it all was a quick idea
you turn around now and it’s been a whole year
i can’t really talk right here
meet me at the corner
Track Name: Sleep (Day 61)
sleep tight streetlights
the drunks are all going home
she will kiss and tell and you'll never be alone
