Track Name: Seasons
the seasons
they come and go
my daughter
don't mind the cold
'cause nothin lasts
and all things change
except perhaps
for Amazing Grace..

and the wolves
they will come for you
if you have a soul to loose
and don't let em see
they get you down
'cause they'll be pass'n too
no don't you doubt it.

and we
we live many lives
but somehow
we never have the time
so be grateful for the now
'cause its pass'n soon
and every season sets the stage
for a world brand-new
Track Name: Heart of Gold
adjust your seat
put up your tray
sit in silence
for the waters of
they are comm'in in
the runway
oh god...

and the face that sits
across from me
on this bus line
is misery
oh where to go?
oh what to do?
the patter of
these leather shoes
let's go..

oh Brooklyn
oh Brooklyn
why do you taunt me with your orange glow
I know I've found my home..

on a park bench
I found your note
if was folded up
like a heart of gold
and the leaves they twist
and turn to me
and they whisper of
what you wouldn't believe..
Track Name: Christmas Wish
on this Christmas I make my wish
that you'd find peace
and happiness
and if that's not with me then let it be
for I know that we didn't think
that anything could happen

Well I asked your mother to put my presents down
underneath the tree
so that they'll be found
and give your sisters a hug and kiss
and tell them for me that dad says Merry Christmas

And on this Christmas
I'm wishing you the best
And a happy morning
from all of the old nightmares

And on this Christmas
I'm praying for you dear
and next time I see you
I'll hug and kiss away your tears
