I had been traveling around Europe, mostly in Normandy, France and writing these songs. I also spent a considerable amount of time at the Omega Institute of Holistic Studies, working with Anthony Ward, gratefully being a part of the visionary artists. I sporadically worked with Pamela Parker at her home studio in the mountainous countryside of Maryland (she now lives in SF, check her out) and we recorded this together over about 30 hours.

Track Name: Heartwood
Rock you to sleep I did my secret moonbeam I’ve gone away
On the midnight train of learning there’s music to play
Slowly you came inside my river widened by heavens love
Go to sleep sweet eyes so I can leave without saying goodbye

Share old heartwood to start over oh her
Face in the warm orange light moves me
Back to the days when fire was sacred
And we danced in the old healing light

You take me out to where mother’s tears are warm mountain eyes
Watching me down here where I just cry and cry and cry
Colorado hot springs are how you dream of me
Showing up on your front porch like you did in your angel skirt

Chorus

I’m a rock with words so roll me down your mountainside
Hit my face so hard so I can know its not all in my mind
That you are not you, you’re not the one I knew so well
baby take away that shell

Chorus
Track Name: Puppets
Life is something I don’t much about and
Sometimes I can’t see passed twenty-seven
Its alright if I leave in my dawns light
I might just have to follow my souls light

And I don’t have to come back here
If I learned every thing
I will just stay out in the soul world
Where we’re all everything
Puppets on a string

Love is something I don’t much about and
There are people to show me about it
But its not you and I don’t know what to tell you
Just that I love without having a clue

And I don’t have to wake up in the morning
If I learned everything
I can stay out in the soul world
Where we’re all everything
Puppets on a string
Track Name: Prayer
Oh divine love make me your instrument
Of everlasting peace
Let your love shine through me now
So I can help those in need
Track Name: Magnolia
I love you more than my favorite tree
The one on the farm that still sings to me
Me and Ma we scooped her up when I was just a boy
From the mother that I used to climb filling me with joy

Sweet magnolia I climb up when I can’t see around
Reminding me that things grow on no matter what’s been falling down

There was a winter oh so rough that broke her branches off
But through years those empty spots are filled with flowers
And I how I wish to climb her boughs and bask in her fragrance
And I always thought that you’d be there to climb with the children

Sweet magnolia I climb up when I can’t see around
Reminding me that things grow on no matter what’s been falling down

Solo

I love you more than my favorite tree
The one on the farm that still sings to me
Still sings to me
Still sings to me
