Track Name: My Old Friend
Would you grab my knee, give me a boost
I need to feel the wood under my foot
I'm gunna ask the wind to help us dance
To blow some life into my oldest standing friend
We've both grown tall since we were small
I can hardly see the mark we promised never to forget

I still remember digging that hole and dragging that jug of H2O
To make sure that you were comfortable
I'll never forget watching that first leaf fall, 'cause I thought you were dead, and all
But turned you were hiding 'cause it was fall.

And you always came back every year whether I deserved it or not
And sooner than later I saw that you could cool yourself when it got hot
You were stronger than me and made sure that your roots reached so far down that you could drown in the biggest of droughts

That left me pure as a scar
That left me to my own devices which didn't get me very far

My old friend, where have you gone?
Track Name: The Boy Who
Cry wolf, crimson clouds
Possibly hear them now
Leaves decay, winter strays
but the call stays loud
Cry wolf, through the rain
Glisten light beyond your frame
Icing peaks, golden caves
Track you back to crystal pain

Try me today
But I can tell you that nothing has changed
I'm still the way I was made
I was made

Cry the loon, dusk just falls
Ancient limbs gently sway
Cramping light, Breathing room
Is compromising where we came

Try me today
But I can tell you that nothing has changed
I'm still the way I was made
I was made
