GRACE

1. Pulses

Looking out through lashes / and marks of their veils / seeing only crashes / of color so pale // shatter horizon / observe the sight / come to awaken / vision so bright // bending now through pulses / beams play in shape / conquering truth / but only the life they create // I cried, "I love you" / into this light / my words burst into / stars in the night /// I taught my eyes to love / I gave my heart / I carried what I saw / in my arms

2. Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You

Alarke_JustYou_FullBody.jpg

You're just too good to be true / can't take my eyes off of you / you'd be like heaven to touch / I want to hold you so much / at long last love has arrived / and I thank God I'm alive / you're just too good to be true / can't take my eyes off of you / pardon that way that I stare / there's nothing else to compare / the sight of you leaves me weak / there are no words that are too sweet / but if you feel like I feel / please let me know that it's real / you're just too good to be true / can't take my eyes off of you /// I need you baby, and if it's quite alright / I need you baby you warm a lonely night / I love you, baby / trust in me when I say it's ok / oh, pretty baby, don't let me down, I pray / oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay / and let me love you / baby, let me love you

3. Running feat. SLSTCE

Pocket love, my chocolate dove / lock it like a fitted glove, baby / a precious stone, a pretty gem / seems I've got the best of them, baby /// running from the words to say / how you make me feel this way / don't wanna... / if I find that special phrase / will our magic dissipate, baby? / maybe /// my melting sun, my special one / time has flipped and just begun, baby / intangible euphoria / now I've found my warrior, baby /// running from the words to say / how you make me feel this way / don't wanna... / if I find that special phrase / will our magic dissipate, baby? / maybe

4. Grace

All alone, puzzle pieces / never fit the way I think they should / desperate plans in the coldest hands / doomed to always be misunderstood / doomed to always be misunderstood // then grace / a flash of light reflecting in the glass / and I ask /// just where would I be without you? /// reach around behind your eyes / I found yours and you found mine / once was lost but now I see / love's so sweet and it starts with me / love's so sweet and it starts with me // then grace / a flash of light reflecting in the glass / and I ask /// just where would I be without you? /// smile, the light tears me wide open / breathe into my willing heart / clear my throat, shed illusion / a spark, a flash / an endless searching /// where would I be without you? / without you? / without you?

5. Just You

Just you and I /// beach showers facing the marsh / changing water streams on your shoulders / washing your back / the one time you took off your hat // why couldn't we find our private bunker? / it was so easy to discover / the next time around /// just you and I /// you flew up to my window / I looked down, there was a pistol / but only for shooting pigeons and not red birds // why couldn't we find our private bunker? // it was so easy to discover / the next time around /// just you and I

6. Charlie Rockabye

Bambino, I do / bambino, I do / you know it's you / falling, falling / bambino, I do / bambino, I do / you know it's you / falling, falling / / never has balance / asked more of me / wishes have weak points / that snap easily / falling, falling, falling, falling // rocking you, honey, love / cradle you when the bough breaks / watching you from above / kissing you when you awake // the scent of your branch / and this wooden romance / caught in the leaves / that float down in the day / into night, tuck in tight / we'll grow older with light / 'til then, bless this ground / and the words we unwound // rocking you, honey, love / cradle you when the bough breaks / watching you from above / kissing you when you awake // rockabye, now / send a kiss through the eyes / holding the breath / and forgetting the death / of the unspoken unknown / who's to say what you own / except this moment being rocked / in this gold honeypot

7. Mignon

Do you know that land / where the blood oranges bloom / and lemon loves lie in leafy trees? / do you know that house / with its roof on so tight? / poor child, what of your night? // do you know that land? / do you know that land? / do you know that land? /// there would I go with you / I would go with you / there would I go with you / I would go with you / there would I go with you / I would go with you / there would I go with you / yes, I would /// do you know that path / on the high mountainside / where warmer winds blow when mists divide? / the dragon rears its brood / in the far ancient cave / and torrents flow over river rock // // do you know that land? / do you know that land? / do you know that land? /// there would I go with you / I would go with you / there would I go with you / I would go with you / there would I go with you / I would go with you / there would I go with you / yes, I would
