Jar of Tears 03:34
Lay my soul down by the river beneath the willow tree And I know I know I’ll never cry again But I don’t know I don’t know who’ll dry your tears, my friend Deep in dark waters In a jar of tears I’ve buried all my fears And I know I know I should have fought again But I don’t know I don’t know how to ease the pain Uh, from this storm I fled can’t get it out of my head Uh, from this storm I fled can’t get it out of my head And I know I know I’ll never cry again But I don’t know I don’t know who’ll dry your tears, my friend Who’ll dry your tears?

The Cocoon 03:20
One by one will wane Layer by layer Woven into the cocoon With steady hands the weaver chooses strings Fingers running, running through strands Each humming its own tune Dancing over palms One by one will wane Layer by layer Woven into the cocoon Like water carving through stone The weaver knows no time Its passing leaving no mark Running through strands Until the yarn has been spun Twist and turning the course of fate A human’s everlasting play Sway to the sound of life

One 04:00
From the innermost depths I hail Pushing through dark soil and stone Until I reach the surface where I start my climb Unfold, blossom, lignify Turn to rock, be water and wind I am the tide I am everything and everything is one Into a sea of sand I dive and I rise and sink Storming over hills and fields Destroy, wither, rot Untie, dissolve and corrode I am the orbit I am everything and everything is one View it all Grow and tear it down Surrender to the calm Remove thoughts Abandon speech I am the grain I am everything and everything is one

Peering through a thicket of leaves The hunter lingers in the shadows Awaiting his turn Hide and seek Slip away into the woods Hide and seek Play the game of good and evil Hide and seek Take cover where you cannot be found Hide and seek Whispers rushing through the trees The wind sends his warning And it all begins Hide and seek Slip away into the woods Hide and seek Play the game of good and evil Hide and seek Take cover where you cannot be found Hide and seek Hide and seek Hide and seek Play the game Hide and seek Hide and seek Slip away into the woods Hide and seek Play the game of good and evil Hide and seek Take cover where you cannot be found Hide and seek

Air vibrating in the summer heat Filled with the rich scents of nature carried by the wind And she wanders along winding roads A lady clad in purple and gold Lady Lavender Her tale is told far and near Of a scent so sweet A lady so dear A lady so dear Follow the lavender fields They guide the lost children to their true home And the crickets sing their song as the lady walks on Lady Lavender Swaying in the sun caressing the ground To raise a scent All-encompassing As the lady walks on Lady Lavender Her tale is told far and near Of a scent so sweet A lady so dear Lady Lavender
