Astronomy 03:44
Let's leave the city and get out where the sky is Almost dark There may be life on Mars, but when I see the stars I always think About how you gave me this Beyond the Milky Way is there a galaxy Where we will be ok? Baby, we will be ok I believe that what you gave to me Is bigger than just this girl I want to take it to the world I may be naive but I can recognize Heaven fallen from the sky Down around our feet Astronomy, Astronome We've been given signs in this precious life Who can sleep In a bed of apathy? And now you've seen me cry, so you know That is my family Killing them is killing me I believe that what you gave to me Is bigger than just this girl I want to take it to the world I may be naive but I can recognize Heaven fallen from the sky Down around our feet Astronomy, Astronome Gravity is holding all the stars In the galaxy So they never fall And love is in our hearts So we never fall Love is in our hearts So we never fall Astronomy, Astronome Let's leave the city and get out where the sky is Almost dark

Chickadee 03:59
Chickadee, you make me so happy You have a voice like melting snow Chickadee, you taught me how to sing Even when winter brings the frozen cold I can hear your tiny voice singing Don’t let a moment go without rejoicing Don’t let a moment go without singing Dee da dee da dee da dee da dee, dee dee dee da da dee Chickadee, you’re flying low Over many kinds of snow And some are light, but some so hard Some so bright, you can’t see that far But still I hear, way across the yard Your tiny voice rejoicing Don’t let a moment go without rejoicing Don’t let a moment go without singing Don’t let her go, don’t let her go Don’t let her go Without singing

Neighbour 03:18
Neighbour I am your neighbour, I live just next door I know you move the snow and park your car I’ve never seen the inside of your walls And I don’t think of you that much at all ‘Cause I’ve been taught not to speak to strangers And you’ve been told to watch your back How will we make it through the ages When we don’t even know the neighbours? I inhabit orange, you reside in green I have a mountain, you have just one bean I’ve never seen the inside of your walls And I don’t think of you enough at all ‘Cause I’ve been taught not to speak to strangers And you’ve been told to watch your back How will we make it through the ages When we don’t even know the neighbours? Articulate, you’re full of it, have you ever been outside? ‘Cause you’ve been taught not to speak to strangers You’ve been told to watch your back How will we make it through the ages When we don’t even know the neighbours? We’ve been taught not to speak to strangers And we’ve been told to watch our backs How will we make it through the ages When we don’t even know the neighbours?

It's a cold Canadian winter The wind lies to your face As you stand on the landing pad Where he took your breath away When skies are grey, will you wait? Wind chime of hope, balloon of faith I will come back I will come back So early Saturday morning Come and dress your little girl And walk out on the pipeline To make a snow angel When skies are grey, will you wait? Wind chime of hope, balloon of faith I will come back I will come back I will come back I will come back The Stars seem brighter When you are afraid The stars, they seem brighter When you are afraid They're bouncing off the light inside you The light that never fades. I will come back I will come back I will come back I will come back

about

"Nothing between me and the white fire of the stars
but my thoughts, and they floated light as moths
among the branches of the perfect trees" -Mary Oliver
