    I don't know how many of these I have left but they are disappearing. Plays a little faster than digital files and sounds like a tape i.e., tape hiss. Digital preserves the recording nuances, purchase includes free download for posterity. I ship tapes in a very reasonable amount of time. And bubble wrap. If anything ever arrives fucked up tell me and I will do something about it. PAY MORE = GET MORE: Things you didn't even know you needed like t-shirts, cds, glow in the dark lima beans, dreadlocks, rocks from my rock collection, a piece of paper with a useless but probably actually useful mantra written on it, a swatch of pretty nail polish, a picture from my box of things I don't throw away, half a diary page, a rabbit fur collar, a hanky with grandma perfume, et cetera.

    I should also mention that if you PAY MORE = GET MORE, those orders take longer because I take more time on them.

Track Name: Every Decision
Standing in the bath wondering how you do
In the water I wept, thinking of how you felt

Standing in the bath wondering what comes next
For the summer to come true, I thought I needed you

For the summer to come true, I thought I needed you
I needed you...

I share your name
and I shared your name

Where'd you go?
Track Name: Forgive
Friend, I do not fear the lessons
ghosts have reaped around me
Hosting still, a hesitation
you befell naively

The bull of my secrets was
almost lost, but he had a name
he couldn't reveal

She touched me in my solar plexus
spirit tears above me
Dreams of demons building houses
making life look easy

My word is holding me
She's laughing
I'm too sick to forgive
Stand over me
Track Name: I Keep Waiting
I keep waiting a long time for you to come around
I said -
I keep waiting a long time

When you get close you spin me around
and then, you turn me down
But I keep waiting a long time

You conquered lonely lies with lonelier eyes
who knew I traced you
And maybe you told me once,
Maybe you led me on,
But I keep waiting a long time.

I don't wanna keep misbehaving on you
But I do!
It must be true why you wanna leave me alone
Track Name: June
The sweetest skin wore thin, I saw the treasure map begin
Behind your eyes, fixing onto lost desire
And for my dear, I made the dire flight through fire.

A dove once asked me if I love and wore my coke nose like a glove
She broke her song, and laid her mother in my palm
I did her wrong, I rang the dawn and caused her calm.

We thought that nature knew us well, we had to toll the bell to tell
I held on once, the fingers spurned me the from the bone
On writing books to breaking wood, my arm's alone.

I sigh a mountain high, I touched my tears to the sky
But now I'm done, I tied the maple to my breast
The laughter ceased, the lion slept, the longing left.

You're my flame, should I grow cold
You turned my yellow into gold
And when I die, you're singing through me to the end

But you'll always be more.
Know you'll always be more.
Track Name: Little By Little
It's over for me, it's all over.
Don't want to give him the chance to compete
With the way you look at me

I thought I knew you, it's all over.
I can't be remade
From the one who wants.

Say, it isn't just me.
I'm closing in.
Track Name: Lover's Greed
All the ways that I'm living around things I think I need
Any day now, you'll all turn into dust.
All the things that I'm learning,
My desires to being set free
Anyway, how can you look at me?

For your eyes
Graze me til I'm sore
God's hand
Softly on our hold.

Will you believe me when I try to say
Open the door, I love you more every day?

The old beauty unravels on a sheet of make-believe
Swaying wrong until the past has gone asleep
As you wonder how could such sweetness come from being
So mean
Then you find that kind of lover's greed

For your eyes
I'll give you my eyes
God's hand
Softly on our hold

Will you believe me when there's call to stray?
Open the door, I love you more every way.
