Track Name: Lunar Lion
Won't you go where I will go,
follow every paint stroke
Like, Vincent Van Gogh,
I will paint slow
Lessen the distance
of your pacific presence
She stands upon the rock face,
mesmerized in her space
I wrote you a note
I drew it in the snow
You made those words grow

She called me "Lunar Lion"
said, "you're of earth and science"
and I replied, "if I'm a Lunar Lion,
you're a Solar Diamond"

You're a Solar Diamond.
Track Name: Tea for Two
All I wanna do
is pour you some tea
I've got some local honey
from wildflower
Baby, don't say you
only drink coffee
If tea's not your fan, girl,
I'll try to understand
But this tea is made for you,
made for me, and made for two

Girl, don't say you
only drink coffee
All I wanna do
is pour you some tea

Girl, I'll take you to Paris
and share English Breakfast
in a town so modest
The cutest thing I have seen
when you can't finish your sentences
Oh, your bashful smile
and your presence
Compliment this moment,
reflecting in your tea
Oh, I don't mind
if tea's not your kind
I'll try your French Press brew,
I might make a mess too
Espresso, I love the smell through the window
Espresso, I'll try a sip
I might make a mess though
Cuz this tea is made for you,
made for me, and made for two

Girl, don't say you
only drink coffee
All I wanna do
is pour you some tea

Though you leave me starstruck,
I don't want Starbucks
We'll lay a blanket out
on this mountain ground

Though you leave me starstruck,
I don't want Starbucks
We'll lay a blanket out
on this mountain ground

And brew our very own tea
And brew our very own tea...

or coffee
Track Name: Satellites Fall
Moonlight upon your skin
Rest your brown eyes
Your toes and your limbs

Can we just lay here
'till the satellites fall

I love the starlight,
in your, your eyes
I trace, with my eyes
Lines of your smile

...found you

Aurora Borealis,
I'm your explorer
My heart is the Atlas

From the farthest
Moonlit islands
to the forest covered highlands

...found you

Girl you're a rare bird
A feather of prey
Your flight is unheard
As tame as a ballet

Sun above my head
and the moon above my head
Stars above my head

I love the starlight,
in your, your eyes
I trace, with my eyes
Lines of your smile

The sun came to meet you
to warm itself
Your heart blooms too
and I simply melt

...found you

With the sun above my head
and the moon above my head

and the moon above my head
Stars above my head
Track Name: Sun Bear
We grew up in lonely houses,
made up in the mountains
always getting lost
You saw beauty in the bear's paw,
searched out where they all withdraw,
somewhere by the river
And your bravery,
is something I don't see everyday, everyday
You made a song,
asked me to sing along
Sang with the earth
Soil in the north
and it went...

"Sunshine, I was made for you
You were made for me,
But you live more free
Forever, we were meant forever,
We will go where ever,
Even in the sea"

I loved every minute singing,
felt like I was flying,
Never to touch the ground
You convinced me to find,
all I've left behind
and bring it on the hike
We searched all day and night,
looking for the light of the Sun Bear
Sundown,
miles from the closest town,
through the leaves, the vandyke brown
the beast has made his sound [rawr]
Eventually,
We both said our plights,
never to ignite these words
to any soul...

and we sang,
"Sunshine, I was made for you
You were made for me,
But you live more free
Oh, forever, we were meant forever,
We will go where ever,
Even in the sea"

and we sang,
"Sunshine, I was made for you
You were made for me,
But you live more free
Forever, we were meant forever,
We will go where ever,
Even in the sea"

You saw beauty in the bear's paw
Track Name: First Word
I hope I get to see the clouds
I hope it rains the day you come home
So I can say the skies cried for you too
I hope I get to hear your sounds
Wake me up before the sun comes around

I want to hear your first word
your smile, your laugh

I'd love to wake up at two
Just to carry you
I'll tell you stories under the waxing gibbous bloom
and wrap you in a cocoon
I'll call you pine tree, summer leaf
and teach you

and hear your first word
your smile, your laugh

You can color on the walls,
my little artist in the hall
Track Name: Queen and Majesty
Oh, enlist the ground
To capture every sound
That you and I surround

Oh I don't wanna go
I just wanna breathe
I just want to stay here

Baby, I will climb the mountain side
Where the Calvary reside
I will make them understand my audacity
I'm simply attracted
To the center of your gravity

My home is your heart
The art of my bones
Your hands are my scape
The face of these songs

My eyes grab hold
Of sky roots of old
Who tell the story
Of Queen and Majesty

And all they would say
All they would write,
"I'm simply attracted
to the center of your gravity."
