With your body next to mine
The things that we don't say
Slip away with time and take their place
A hundred miles away

I’m lost in the pages
Of words that are dancing
In chapters with no end
But silence is fear so I call out

Just to feel your voice
And know that you're still here

The distance from your lips to mine
Just a breath today
So light this flame again, light this flame
C'mon light this flame

Maybe one day I’ll take a stab at things I’m not given a chance I’d like to throw darts at a map and go wherever they land Fly high in a hot air balloon or maybe I’ll shoot for the moon There are things I could say Maybe I’ll write a play one of these days One of these days  One night I’ll watch the sun set and rise from the top of the world in napal Sell all of my things and pilot a bike from Stone Henge to the Taj Mahal Steak wild kisses under the starts As northern Lights dance in the dark Make love in the rain get carried away One of these days One of these days  Before I get a change to blink Later’s sooner than I think Days are long but life is short And after all is said and done Often more is said than done Will I wish that I’d done more  One day I will learn to forgive And mend all the bridges I’ve burned One day I’ll learn what happiness is And why I was put on this Earth Maybe I’ll figure out how to love And discover what I am made of Maybe I shouldn’t wait Until it’s too late One of these days One of these days  I should do it before There ain’t anymore One of these days

Maybe one day I’ll take a stab at things I’m not given a chance
I’d like to throw darts at a map and go wherever they land
Fly high in a hot air balloon
or maybe I’ll shoot for the moon
There are things I could say
Maybe I’ll write a play
one of these days
One of these days

One night I’ll watch the sun set and rise
from the top of the world
in napal
Sell all of my things
and pilot a bike from Stone Henge to the Taj Mahal
Steak wild kisses under the starts
As northern Lights dance in the dark
Make love in the rain
get carried away
One of these days
One of these days

Before I get a change to blink
Later’s sooner than I think
Days are long but life is short
And after all is said and done
Often more is said than done
Will I wish that I’d done more

One day I will learn to forgive
And mend all the bridges I’ve burned
One day I’ll learn what happiness is
And why I was put on this Earth
Maybe I’ll figure out how to love
And discover what I am made of
Maybe I shouldn’t wait
Until it’s too late
One of these days
One of these days

I should do it before
There ain’t anymore
One of these days

Born in the heat of Louisiana, It was cool when I met her up in Butte Montana. She was a lot too free, I was a little too wild. I could tell right away she's a holy child. CHORUS: Now we're awake alright under the Northern Lights tonight. It's the angels gone electrical its so hard to be skeptical of the sky. We don't ask why. We just sit and watch the gods roll by. VERSE 2: Her eyes were black her hair was gold. She lived way down the end on Patterson Road. It was a busted trailer on a mountain stream. Who needs heaven it's a hell of a dream. CHORUS. VERSE 3: Mexican blanket screw top wine. She's wrapped all around me like a Bordeaux vine. I don't care if I ever leave. I can feel all my tricks running down my sleeve.

Just don't you ever leave.

Beach Song
Written By: Rachel VanSlyke
In the light I sit I stare I sink
in the white sand hand stand kicking up grinning
eyes collide the sky has married the sea
i'll burry you if you burry me
Thinking how fast our thoughts capsizing
horizon wide while rip tide's fresh and awake
echo I grow with the flow of the waves
they roll they crash they break
oooh oooh oooh oooh
In an overcast blast now
sun struck skin in the shade
I'm watching how night time's washing the day
intense intent let go with the wind
look high the sky is opening
milky way stay your light gives air to the flame
that's flickering stars are falling like rain
knocked out of clouds and tumbling down
a sound this song starts slipping out
oooh oooh oooh oooh
Dunes get moon lit everywhere a silhouette
of warm affection a foreign direction to go
it feels unknown it feels like home
feels like home feels like
oooh oooh oooh oooh

Help is on the Way
Written By: Rachel VanSlyke
I wash the floors down a lit hall way
these open doors all look the same
and I wanna leave
but I feel like I should wait
With one foot down and the other in place
I gotta believe
these choices that I make are gonna
lead me where I need to be
Chorus: You keep saying
that help is on the way
well I'm ready now
You keep saying
that everything is meant
to be this way
and don't you doubt
it
out on the line
everything to do
and they bet and threat what you gonna loose
the message is still getting through
there ain't nothing they can take from you
and how many times have I told you
not to hurry it
don't you worry now for somebody else
when you gotta be strong and stay true to yourself
Chorus: You keep saying
that help is on the way
well I'm ready now
You keep saying
that everything is meant
to be this way
and don't you doubt
it
well the wind picks up and pulls you down
you want to land but there is no end
the closer you get to all you want
the harder it is to (take a) stand
but I can recall a miracle
every time I feel like givin up
so I'm goin on
Chorus: You keep saying
that help is on the way
well I'm ready now
You keep saying
that everything is meant
to be this way
and don't you doubt
well don't look down
oh no ooh
when you doubt
oh no ooh oooh
