Roswell 04:22
What led me to this station Was your voice singing soft and low From the golden age of radio You said, "I've been wishing on you star man" I said, "I don't get around much anymore, But I'm fueling up my UFO" Yes I got the message, now I got one for you too Meet me in Roswell In the still of the night Meet me in Roswell 'Neath the motel vacancy light Only love will tell Only love will tell in Roswell Now just look for my vapor trail 'Round midnight and the moon You said, "Darling make sure you're not followed" I said, "I'll try Love, but just in case Keep the engine running in your Rocket 88" Meet me in Roswell In the still of the night Meet me in Roswell 'Neath the motel vacancy light Only love will tell Only love will tell in Roswell I've never been but I here that it's nice late in the summer in a top secret site Outta sight Meet me in Roswell In the still of the night Meet me in Roswell 'Neath the motel vacancy light Only love will tell Only love will tell in Roswell

Nova 03:57
From far beyond my wildest dreams You've shaken me from the dark And you need every answer I can tell that it's killing you to be in the dark So are we free or kept in the dark? I can't tell you how…are you familiar with the birds and bees Or the humming of a mystery? I can't tell you why…but I will sing with you all the while if it makes you smile…..Nova And so we've danced in leaps and bounds Spinning around with this rock And you still need meaning I can that tell it's killing you to keep your faith in a rock It's both a heaven and a hell of a rock I can't tell you how…are you familiar with the birds and bees Or the humming of a mystery? I can't tell you why…but I will sing with you all the while if it makes you smile…..Nova All is fair in love, war and other one way trips Of all the worlds I've seen It was your face that launched my ship It's you I'd go down with Nova

I've got my morning jacket on The path is wide and golden I'm gonna take it just as long and far As it's your hand I'm holding If it's true of what they say about the April rain Then the world's about to bloom...Come what May Oh forgive me if I'm paranoid My Darling it's been so long But now the blood is rushing warm and hard to my heart As a thrush bursts into song If it's true of what they say about the April rain Then the world's about to bloom I'm floating over bluebell fields The same fields that just held me I'll meet you 'neath the twisted cross Of the crooked roof's belfry...Come what May I know I can make you (Come What May) I know I can make you come

The Clouds are above us now When gravity brought down heaven We were love birds So caught up in our tailwind Landing in love is so hard when we're falling Landing in love is hard When we're falling back to Earth in a grand tailspin Are we expecting to fly Over mountains and great divides While we're bound to vows not ours Or are we only human Born to work this land with our hands Through the hardest of times In the fields of our hearts When love becomes a whole lot easier When love becomes a whole lot easier….Said than done We're stumbling through the dark Hallways and clinging to Better times framed Whenever skies were blue Learning to love is so hard when we're falling Learning to love is hard When we're falling back on A memory that's fading too Are we expecting to fly Over mountains and great divides While we're bound to vows not ours Or are we only human Born to work this land with our hands Through the hardest of times In the fields of our hearts When love becomes a whole lot easier When love becomes a whole lot easier….Said than done When we say love we need to get it done

Momma Blue 03:58
For all we even know While the climate changes We're still sailing for the last plateau Where war rages, world war rages I'll keep my faith in you It's only natural, it's only natural I'll keep my faith in you It's only natural Momma Blue I would never ask you the same With everything we've put you through While you're children still misbehave In spite of you, despite you I'll keep my faith in you It's only natural, it's only natural I'll keep my faith in you It's only natural Momma Blue You'll be free of us someday soon

I've got love But there's something wrong with me I've got love But there's something wrong with me…Why? You've got time But it's framed up on your wall You've got time But it's framed up on your wall …Why? Why are we so hard to please? Is it so hard to believe? That we are alive and clinging All the same like winter leaves We've got one world But we dream up something more We've got one life And still we dream up something more Why? Why isn't our love, love enough? Why isn't our time, time enough? Why isn't the world, the world enough? Why isn't our life, life enough? Why?

I suppose if I just stood still For a moment to see you collide In the roll you were born to play One human kind It’s still me upon this stage But the beat that my heart skips to has changed And not even you could keep me from singing Not even you could keep me from singing enough It’s not you I’m singing of Anymore love I’m in a different mood today I can’t keep myself from laughing Rolled out of bed this way Bit surprised what with all that’s happened It’s still you beneath my bed with the rest of my monsters But I’m not afraid Cause not even you could keep me from dreaming Not even you could keep me from dreaming enough It’s not you I’m dreaming of Anymore love My heart was a record broken by you You could take this needle from my groove Oh but not even you could keep me from spinning….keep me from spinning… On through…It’s not you I’m spinning to Anymore love

One last thing before I go away for the record I've been around enough to know These are the days to remember Will you remember This stranger on a dark horse riding out the weather Who covers every lonesome track Just to lose you in the desert For all we even know it's all on the record For all we even know it's all on the record It's all on the record So we wrote another song, another drop of rain into the ocean deep Somehow it found its way upon a wave, Through the night and towards the light In the house you keep Even the smallest cast stone leaves ripples on the water A song bird high up in the sun cast shadows even darker On those who really know it's all on the record For all we even know it's all on the record It's all on the record One last thing before I go away for the record I had the most amazing time These days I remember Will you remember From the shallows to the deep You are the light in the house you keep
