mureenuh Wonderful revisit of some beloved tracks from long ago. This really hits the nostalgia spot in addition to just being a killer album. Favorite track: Winter's Song.

the years wore through us both together words it seems don't make good seams like thin and cheap imitation leather tearing away from this old routine now I keep on tryin’ to forget what you said but not how you said it retracing every line in every letter you sent 'til I can finally admit it got all these scattered pieces pieces that don't go with all the other pieces pieces that I know I tried holding on through the weary weather but now it seems we don't fit that dream like colors fade in a vintage sweater all that remains are glitchin‘ memories now I keep on tryin’ to forget what you said but not how you said it retracing every line in every letter you sent 'til I can finally admit it got all these scattered pieces pieces that don't go with all the other pieces pieces that I know memories flash before my eyes and I can't take it knowing the words you said were lies and seein’ you fake it you fed me hope so I'd exhale, told me patience would prevail I held on tight but slipped away from all of you and everything got all these scattered pieces pieces that don't go with all the other pieces pieces that I know, yeah ain't prayin' to a savior for us (these pieces they don't go) just lookin' for a stranger to trust (with any pieces that I know) ain't prayin' to a savior for us (your pieces just don't go) just lookin' for a stranger to trust and give 'em all I am

he can't see clearly now... through love-tinted eyes... she gets him every time... he can’t articulate and put into words just how she always made him melt or how each time she found it easy to hurt and somehow she knew that he wouldn’t tell left him molded and folded, pasted and cut left him blinded by everything she said was love her favorite game became arranging his edited heart she knew he'd take it, she’d fake it, he’d fall apart he can’t see clearly now, clearly now through love-tinted eyes, tinted eyes she gets him every time, every time with her erotic, robotic, hypnotic, bedroom lies he can't see clearly now... through love-tinted eyes... he can’t depressurize or vividly dream with these nightmares always running wild in a wash of hopeful past coulda beens he’s tuned out, withholding all of his smiles he’s destroyed, bruised and broken, tattered and torn she sits alone, breaking hearts in the eye of the storm tears falling down became the sign of a change in his eyes her love is trouble, he struggles to say goodbye he can’t see clearly now, clearly now through love-tinted eyes, tinted eyes she gets him every time, every time with her erotic, robotic, hypnotic, bedroom lies you gotta wake up, wake up we gotta wake up, wake up you wanna feel that fire burn (fire burn) when the lights go down (when the lights go down) without some oil for the flame (for this flame) it's been drying out (and we're dying now) he can see clearly now, clearly now through love-tinted eyes, tinted eyes she gets him every time, every time with her erotic, robotic, hypnotic, bedroom lies erotic bedroom lies robotic bedroom lies hypnotic bedroom lies

she saw him coming over with a rush of adrenaline so fast didn’t quite know why closer now emotions started overflowing memories blow in and cloud her mind a few feet to close the gap that was between them wondering is he friend or foe staring at him questions start to overwhelm and she can’t decide if she should go the wind grabbed and pushed and pulled her the wind took her by surprise the wind spun as fast as she could the wind made her want... it made her want to fly he was the one and only she had let into her heart the first to make a fire start but knowing no devotion she was leaving behind everything she felt so torn apart she turned around to hide from him the hint of a smile that revealed her change of heart she felt a stirring deep inside a breath of freedom his look, may be the best part the wind grabbed and pushed and pulled her the wind took her by surprise the wind spun as fast as she could the wind made her want... made her want to fly

I never saw a reflection a reflection more true before the day I saw myself I saw myself in you a love separated separated by miles of sea call it long distance we called it a new journey I never heard your voice clearer before I read the lipstick on the mirror a dark smudge in fade-resistant pink an eternity, but it felt like a blink it felt like a blink before we grow old, say to me that we tried it all that our time meant something more than nothing there’s women I loved, women that loved me they outside beautiful, but inside be ugly people keep saying “Gardener man go hard and let that shit go” why would I do that when that is the most precious feeling in my life that I’ve ever known? I was eighteen, shit was serene I was her fling, she was my queen Ma it’s cool, see the truth, I’ve learned and I’ve grown hope you can say the same thing before you go 'cause life is short like a barber’s trim life can crush you like a pile of Tim’s pool of sorrows and I’ma dive right in cover my head with the clout still don’t admit all the doubts drowning in sorrows no doubt they counting me out 'cause I’m down before we grow old you will see gettin’ back up from my knees ensuring my future succeeds the evils will never impede my dreams, my dreams they something so close I can reach - Gardener before we grow old, say to me that we tried it all that our time meant something more than nothing and now I'm watching you watching me from beyond places that I believe in and as I hear your way with words I lose where mine have been it's like every page we took was from a fairy tale picture book and I'd forgotten how happy we looked forgotten how happy we looked before we grow old, say to me that we tried it all that our time meant something more than nothing

there is a copy of my CD in your bedroom and I keep touching it to make sure that this is real you say you know every word and maybe that soon you'll know how all of the girls in my liner notes feel but you turn down, but you turn down the one song that I wrote for you while you sing, sing, sing your own ending I wanna start at the beginning baby while you lie, lie, lie there pretending my words quietly keep on spinning around spinning around now there's a pile of my clothing on your room's floor and I know I won't be able to sleep tonight you wonder if I ever thought of you like this before I imagine you would've known if you'd just read the lyrics right but you turn down, but you turn down the one song that I wrote for you while you sing, sing, sing your own ending I wanna start at the beginning baby while you lie, lie, lie there pretending my words quietly keep on spinning around spinning around while we sing, sing, sing our own endings the truth is, we gotta start at the beginning baby c'mon girl while we sing, sing, sing our own ending we gotta start at the beginning baby while we lie, lie, lie there pretending these thoughts quietly keep on spinning around spinning around, yeah some day just seems so far let's just admit it's over won't change the way things are pretending that we are closer

I can't imagine a better song coming across the airwaves now and even if I forget the when or the how I will not let go of just how long you met my glance and in the empty parking lot asked me to dance being here with you I can barely speak just one word and my tongue goes weak this movie's ending is no longer based on a dream 'cause tonight I'll play myself and we'll finally make a scene yeah we'll finally make a scene could you imagine a better view fading away in the rearview now it doesn't matter whether we've gone too far 'cause I could never forget just how long you met my glance and in the empty parking lot asked me to dance being here with you I can barely speak just one word and my tongue goes weak this movie's ending is no longer based on a dream 'cause tonight I'll play myself and we'll finally make a scene yeah we'll finally make a scene if everything we'd done was enough I'd find a way no matter the price I'd pay to never go back that way eventually we'll need to stop and make amends for all of the time we've spent pretending our days were free and this road would never end being here with you I can barely speak just one word and my tongue goes weak this movie's ending is no longer based on a dream 'cause tonight I'll play myself and we'll finally make a scene yeah we'll finally make a scene we're gonna make a scene
