Track Name: Home for Thanksgiving
a few minutes ago the sun was setting
over the ocean, pastels on the horizon
now the sky is dark and it's turned windy
my hair is blown, a familiar feeling

i remember when you were here
feels like yesterday but it's been three years

my heart is aching for a partnership
my mind is desperate for stability
my two ears seek out some silence
and my body calls out for balance

i'm still away at sea
how's it out in the country?
perhaps you'll wait for me
i'll be home for thanksgiving,
i'll be home for thanksgiving
Track Name: Ode to Bernice Johnson Reagon
Don't you wanna be a fighter for justice, don't you wanna be a leader of peace?
Won't you come with me on a march for freedom, working and striving for equality!
We won't stop until we make a difference. We won't give up, we won't concede.
Won't you take my hand and join the circle? The circle won't be broken, long as we believe.

The time is right to do what's right.
The time is right. To do what, to do what's right.

I learned from you one Sunday. You told the church that we could pray
In song and dance and harmony, and make real changes we could feel and see.
You let us hear you, your words of peace. You shouted to the heavens about Dr. King.
I wept from my seat and tried to sing. I wanna be a maker of history.

Don't you wanna be a fighter for justice? Don't you wanna be a leader of peace?
Won't you come with me on a march for freedom, working and striving for equality!
Track Name: Cloudy
Once I told myself that I would stop thinkin', thinkin' 'bout you.
Once I told myself that it was time to play it cool.
But it's not so easy when I see you walkin' down the street.
It's not so simple when you trickle into my dream, into my daydream.

It doesn't matter if I take my antihistamine!
It doesn't matter if I got enough sleep.
I'm still cloudy;
I'm still cloudy.
Track Name: Mine to Keep
Sometimes I dream that all the people I see on the street smile at me. And in this dream the peace I feel - it's mine to keep; and it's a good night's sleep.
Track Name: Hurricane Song
there's a hurricane outside my window
you probably should've stayed, but you decided to go
all of suburbia tucked safe in their homes,
feet up on the coffee table, listenin' to the ebb and flow

do you hear that? it started out slow
now it's growing, less ebb and more flow
do you hear that? it started out slow
now it's growing, less ebb and more flow

there's a hurricane outside my window
i've got the candles ready, but i'm all alone
the strong gusts of wind rattle my bones
the rain is coming down sideways, this storm's full grown

do you hear that? it started out slow
now it's growing, less ebb and more flow
do you hear that? it started out slow
now it's growing, less ebb and more flow

there's a hurricane outside my window
Track Name: Finish My Sentence
i think you're nice
but i've been thinking twice
that you're not the one for me

i think you're swell
but baby can't you tell?
that we're not meant to be

i noticed you across the room
staring at me
an upturned grin, i wanna let you in
but it's not happening

it's over before it begins

i want someone who knows me better
someone who'll finish my sentence
but i, but i don't think that's you

i want someone who knows me better
someone who'll finish my sentence
but i, but i, but i don't think that's you
it's sad but true

i no longer want you

it's always been
that i'm the one to jump right in
to give it all i've got

but not this time
there needs to be a reason or rhyme,
it can't be all for naught

"there's a guy who'll treat you right!"
my friend said to me
but what's that worth
if my heart's not beating irregularly?

i want someone who knows me better
someone who'll finish my sentence
but i, but i don't think that's you

i want someone who knows me better
someone who'll write me love letters!
but i, but i, but i don't think that's you
it's sad but true

i no longer want you
