Track Name: Short But Sweet
I LAUGHED AT JOKES THAT WERE NOT FUNNY
WORE MY RAINCOAT WHEN IT WAS SUNNY
LOST MY KEYS ONE NIGHT, DRUNK AS HELL
SPENT SOME TIME IN MY STAIRWELL

SHORT BUT SWEET, WAIT AND SEE.
IT GOES SO SLOW, NO -
IT JUST GOES.

I FILLED MY NAILS WITH FOOD AND DIRT
WHEN IT WAS COLD I WORE FIVE SHIRTS
HAMMERED DAYS ‘TIL THEY WERE FLAT
KEPT CRAZY THINGS DOWN IN MY HAT

SHORT BUT SWEET, WAIT AND SEE.
IT GOES SO SLOW, NO -
IT JUST GOES.

EVERY TIME I HAVE TO CHOOSE
DESPERATE, AFRAID TO LOSE
TELL ME WHAT IS IT, PUSHES ME ON
SETS ME FREE, BUT THEN IS GONE…

A RIVER ROSE THROUGH MY BACK YARD
I SAT AND WATCHED, IT WAS NOT HARD
EVERYTHING WAS WASHED AWAY
NEW THINGS GROW THERE TODAY

SHORT BUT SWEET, WAIT AND SEE.
IT GOES SO SLOW, NO -
IT JUST GOES.
Track Name: Starting Small
It's so not-rock
Really just a seed
Too early to be sure
It's not a beautiful weed

Lookin' at you last night
In the dark
The miles that we've travelled
Didn't seem very far

CHORUS:
Starting small
Building windows in the walls
Winter wakes when the first leaf gets brown and falls
Starting small

You're so un-punk
A little sparrow in the dawn
Opening one eye
Stretching and you're gone

Talking to you tonight
On the phone
Add another feather
To The Wing of Not-Alone

Chorus

Little boombox speakers
One eye and the moon
Just a kind of feeling
In the middle of our room

Sleeping with you last night
Silver beams
And now another morning
A garden and some seeds
Track Name: In Every Kitchen
DAN SILVER’S PICTURE’S ON MY REFRIGERATOR
HELD THERE BY A MAGNET THAT ADVERTISES POWER
IN THE PICTURE SILVER ALMOST SMILES ON THE
SNOWY STREET WHERE WE WERE PARTING WAYS

DAN SILVER ALMOST SMILED WHEN WE SAT WITH COFFEE
ARPEGGIATING ON OUR NEW ACOUSTICS
HIS FADED T-SHIRT STATED “NEIL YOUNG SUCKS” AND SO WE’D
BEND LIGHTNIN’ HOPKINS OR LITTLE FEAT

THERE WERE A COUPLE MORE DAN SILVER EPISODES
SITTING IN AT LUKE’S OR IN THE WOODS NEAR EUGENE
HE PLAYED HIS STRAT WITH POWER, SUBLIMATING SADNESS,
HE POSED FOR ONE MORE PICTURE, ALMOST SMILING

Chorus:
IN EVERY KITCHEN WE REMEMBER.
REFRIGERATOR MEMORIALS.
WE REACH FOR ICE CREAM, THEY’RE ALMOST SMILING.
SOMETIMES A PICTURE OF SOME OLD DOG…


MY GIRLFRIEND’S UNCLE MIKE SMOKES A CIGARETTE
STANDING ON THE MOON OR SOME DRY RIVER
CANCER TOOK HIM AND MY FRIEND DAN SILVER
A BOWL OF CHEERIOS CRIES OUT FOR MILK…
Track Name: Birds of Paradise
SOME ARE GHOSTS OF THINGS WE’VE SEEN.
SOME ARE MIDNIGHT MEMORIES.
A FLOCK OF THEM IN WATER CAN
KILL A ROOM OR SAVE A MAN…

MAY YOUR BIRDS OF PARADISE
WAKE YOU WITH FLOWERS AT THE END OF THE NIGHT.

AFTERNOON BRINGS SHADOWS OF THE KIND
THAT DARE YOU TO CROSS THEIR LINES.
SILOUHETTES THAT PIERCE THE DUSK
A BIRD IN HAND, BOTH KINDS OF LUCK

MAY YOUR BIRDS OF PARADISE
BE JUST AS GOOD IN BLACK AND WHITE

Bridge
HUMMINGBIRDS WON’T STAND STILL
ROSES SUFFER FROM OVERKILL
THE HARVEST MOON STILL WORKS ALRIGHT,
BUT IT’S ONLY USEFUL ON OCTOBER NIGHTS
MESSAGES OF LOVE CAN BE
HARD TO SEND AND RECEIVE
BIRDS OF PARADISE COME INTO PLAY
IF AND WHEN YOU WANT TO SAY
DO YOU WANT TO SAY -

WE ARE A JUNGLE BABY, NO TREES IN SIGHT
JUST MILES OF BIRDS OF PARADISE
Track Name: Someone Specific
SOMEONE TO SOFTEN ALL THE BLOWS
DRESS YOU IN SERVICEABLE CLOTHES
BATHE YOU IN THE LUNAR GLOW
WHEN THE NIGHT HAS MADE YOU BLIND

SOMEONE SPECIFIC?
WHO’D YOU HAVE IN MIND?

MAGNIFIES THE SUMMER STARS
PUTS IN YOUR HAND WHAT ONCE WAS FAR
MAKES YOU SURE JUST WHO YOU ARE
WHEN THE DAY LEAVES YOU BEHIND

SOMEONE SPECIFIC?
WHO’D YOU HAVE IN MIND?

LIE WITH YOU IN MORNING SUN
MAKE YOU FORGET YOUR NEED TO RUN
YOU KNOW THAT ONE IS THE ONE
WHEN YOU WAKE ONE DAY TO FIND

SOMEONE SPECIFIC
WHO’D YOU HAVE IN MIND?
