Track Name: One Last Time
Drivin’ passin’ me by
Where are you going this time?

Rollin’ frames, leavin’ moments behind
Won’t you consider taking mine?

Don’t you leave me lonely
Don’t you leave me behind again

Won’t you wait just a minute?
I’m asking you one last time

Our lives pass in the wink of an eye
When did you last see the sunrise?

or, Hear those birds?
they were made to be heard

oh how they love when you listen

Don’t you leave them lonely
Don’t you leave them behind again

Won’t you wait just a minute?
I’m asking you one last time

Hold her dearly while you have her to hold
Then you can always remember

Hold her dearly while you have her to hold
Then you can always remember
Track Name: I am not I
Soy este
que va a mi lado sin yo verlo;
que, a veces, voy a ver,
y que, a veces, olvido.
El que calla, sereno, cuando hablo,
el que perdona, dulce, cuando odio,
el que pasea por donde no estoy,
el que quedará en pié cuando yo muera.

I am not I
I am this one
walking beside me
whom I do not see
at times I manage to visit
and at other times I forget
the one who remains
silent when I talk
the one who forgives
sweet when I hate
the one who takes a walk
while I remain indoors
and the one who remains
standing, when I die.
Track Name: A Few Important Words
one year ago I sent a few important words out into the world
last night they came fluttering back
grown and urgently pressing themselves against my ears
I listened to every whisper
this time I understood more so than when I first spoke
they were clear and gracious and swift
a light that shone to lead to a land almost found

from the ground I pulled myself up like a root
I planted my feet into that earth who spoke those few important words.
Track Name: Flowers of Peace
well the summertime is coming
and the leaves are sweet returning
but those flowers of peace
it's for them I'm really yearning

will they bloom, ever bloom
will they bloom in the springtime
those flowers of peace
when the world should be in ringtime
will they bloom, ever bloom

i built my love a bower
on a crystal flowing river
but the things she desires
are things I cannot give her

will they bloom, ever bloom
will they bloom in the springtime
those flowers of peace
when the world should be in ringtime
will they bloom, ever bloom

if you and I should see those flowers
then go and tell your neighbors
when the first seed is planted
it takes hard and careful labor

then they'll bloom, ever bloom
they will bloom in the springtime
those flowers of peace
then the world will be in ringtime
then they'll bloom, ever bloom
Track Name: None but One
Across the plains there moves a sway
It moves with human sound
Some do walk and some do run
Some crawl upon the ground
Some do stop to help the weak
Some trample on the others
Some do laugh, and some do weep
and all of them are brothers

Sounding all around the sound
Around and everywhere
None but one can understand
and none but one can hear

I mine, and I thine
Father, mother, son
I me, and I thee
and all of us are one

I saw 4 travelers in a dream
all in the wind and weather
the chains they carried in their hands
it bound them all together

One was yellow, one was red
and older than the others
One was black, and one was white
and all of them were brothers

Sounding all around the sound
Around and everywhere
None but one can understand
and none but one can hear

I mine, and I thine
Father, mother, son
I me, and I thee
and all of us are one
