Track Name: Sisters | Oregon
Born on a mountain
My head in the clouds
To the west was the ocean
Valleys, and farms
Raised among giants
These sisters of the land
I bathed in their waters
Slept in their hands

A howl at the moon
A wind through the trees
A fish on the end of the line

It’s all mine to gain
A simple reminder
Her secret is patience and mine is the same

If you should go
To where I am from
Remember me to my favorite haunt
The bridge by the creek
Where I lost my voice
Singing for supper and a bluebird sky
I wish I’d have known
Time’s slow decay
Lost as a memory now

Speak not of sorrow Sisters of mine
You’re always with me I’ll be back in time
A life on the road, and a home far from here
My Oregon home
My Oregon home

When you return
From the place I come from
Take only backroads
Make time to get lost
Swim naked in rivers
Put a line on the pole
Sleep under starlight
This place is your home
Track Name: These Dead Hours (Bonus)
You've got to lean into fear,
Quit telling yourself your dreams just happen.
Get stung by the night,
Let it roll you home,
Stoned.

You get tangled around,
Stop tying a knot that won't unravel.
You're still telling yourself that no ones safe,
Strange.

She's taking a ride,
She's taking her life to Colorado.
I'm digging in deep,
Stuck waiting around in these dead hours.

I want to run through the woods,
At the top of the world, be resurrected.
So awake in a place with every soul,
Unbound.

Where people fall into love,
Nothing falls out of place,
You'd read about it.
This distance we know is only fear,
Close.

She's taking a ride,
She's taking her life to Colorado.
I'm digging in deep,
Stuck waiting around in these dead hours.

You've got a moment of life,
Don't throw it away there's nothing better.
