Track Name: Bussing It
when it was my turn
to depend on the bus line
bags spilling out my arms
at the mercy
of any strangers’ pity
struggling to map the city
it’s not like medical conditions
laden with complications
made obvious by walkers and pokemon t-shirts
i’m relying less on comfort. am i moving up a ladder?
is independence good or bad?

we’re all bussing it
we’re all swimming upstream
it’s a brutal awakening
that we are all the same

i only have a dollar
with my arm stretched out the window
i wish it was more
but i saved it just for you
i know it's not a super power,
but neither is invisibility
‘cause who could live like that
maybe it’s all a dream
and we wake up in the woods
& we’re holding hands
in a ring of flowers,
shoulder to shoulder,
& we start to dance
your crown could blind me

we’re all bussing it
swimming upstream
it's brutal awakening
we are all the same

[a song about riding the bus in Denver, CO]
Track Name: Banquet
i take your hand
and you take mine
we asked for roof, food, sleepy headed children
handmaidens shout their hymn

gathering together, sending us with song
now pronouncing, on this side of history
forever hold my peace

hidden in soil
and buried under years of sorrow,
it was always you (it was always you)
it was always you (it was always you)


words are misremembered
but music jogs my memory
the flight of time could never strip them of any power
glory be

the earth has turned,
it will turn again
i’ll stay awake till then (it was always you)
i’ll stay awake till then (it was always you)

i'll stay awake
i'll stay awake

[Written for Hannah and Adam, on their wedding day]
Track Name: 100% of You
i wear my boots, he wears his beard
no barricades today
we’re not even halfway,
we’re all the way baby
detach myself, unite to him,
step in step in step in rhythm

you invite me to tea, it’s what girls do
we catch up, there’s unexpected news
aching tears, and honest fear
urgent dawning
that you could never be me,
and i could never be you

in bed
is my heavy chest
thin dread
or a veiled hand
i’ll make it
if you come, if you stay with me,
if you talk to me

we're not halfway, baby
we’re all the way
we're not halfway, baby
we’re all the way

could tension ever comfort us?
nowhere near and could it already be?
are we climbing
a mountain while we
float at sea?
100% of you
100% of me

in bed
is my heavy chest
thin dread
or a veiled hand
i’ll make it
if you come, if you stay with me,
if you talk to me

we're not halfway, baby
we’re all the way
we're not halfway, baby
we’re all the way

[A song about fully embracing paradoxes and tensions]
Track Name: Boxer
light weight champion
for two glorious weeks
two weeks quietly
slips into 30 years

when you’re out of fight
the world has turned its eye away

i’m running
my feet pound the dirt on the trail
this is the part in my own feel good movie
when scene cuts to scene cuts to scene
the hardest part
is doing it all over again
the hardest part
is doing it

every small victory
is cause to celebrate
beating your body,
your home, your fears

kids train to fight
the world has turned its eye away

i’m running
my feet pound the dirt on the trail
this is the part in my own feel good movie
when scene cuts to scene cuts to scene
the hardest part
is doing it all over again
the hardest part
is doing it

[a song about boxers and my neighbor, Charlie Brown, in Brewerytown, Philadelphia]
Track Name: Move
when i was a child
in a ever expanding world
everything was the biggest I’d ever seen
no distractions
& if you cut me i could shine
nowhere to be,
and to move my legs real good
each day a universe, scale the walls

sitting stiffly, gears are grinding in a shrinking world
heart is racing,
head is dizzy, no not now
i am tempted to never move my feet again
or to move my legs at all,
to try and scale the walls,
and look over

light in my skin
imagine
fairy tales can fix
disease of forgetfulness

i move my legs
and leave the room
nothing more to prove

[Partially inspired by the Billy Collins poem On Turning Ten.]
