Track Name: Song of the Open Road
O, we rode up the mountain road
Two pilgrims to the shrine
Round shining rings in sunlit skies
Heard silent words and opened eyes

Then climbed up birches toward heaven
We went out of our minds
The time behind, the dream sublime
The engine and the churchbell chime

The autumn swelled, the apples fell
Down rotting on the ground
And round the mountain where the water flowed
We heard the song of the open road
Track Name: Sitting Beside a Giant
In the face of forever
Sitting beside a giant
You and I came together
Secure in the shelter
We found in each other

We saw the sun lying on a riverbed
We saw the starts flying high above our heads
And we came together that night

We saw the sunset from Sunrise Mountain
Closed secrets were exposed
And we flowed as if from a fountain
And we drank of that water
Just taking it all in

We saw the sun lying on a riverbed
We saw the starts flying high above our heads
And we came together that night
I will remember that night
Track Name: The New Year
The days have drifted by so suddenly
Now the new year comes in quietly
The room is cold as I close the door

I'm looking back at you and all we meant to do
But nothing good can come from holding on to you
The sun is warm as I close by eyes

I'm picking up the pieces of my memory
Remembering the places I feel free
I feel free

I open up the door, I feel the winter on my skin
Out into the snow, I hear the new year in the wind
The world is white, under open sky

I'm picking up the pieces of my memory
Remembering the places I feel free
I feel free
