GLASS HOUSE

Lyrics by Olivia Jane

Music by Robert Davis & Nathaniel Cox

 

Missed my window now, and it’s much too late

I’m just hearing static, feeling my heart break

This world, the one I made is crumbling in time

My house is red and wretched

No hush for me to find

 

Now I know why the radio went silent

Now I know why that was the last time

You closed the door, I closed my heart

Thought I needed to be free

I kept you locked away, and you didn’t keep me

 

Looking through glass at your peaceful picket fence

I’m grasping this here stone, pacing, wondering when

I throw this stone and crash through this wall

But now I’m stuck here bleeding

Watching the glass fall

 

Now I know why the radio went silent

Now I know why that was the last time

You closed the door, I closed my heart

Thought I needed to be free

I kept you locked away, and you didn’t keep me

 

Walk away from my window through the alley all cut up

I’ll see you someday, my friend

You’ll always have my love

I throw this stone and crash through this wall

But now I’m stuck here bleeding

Watching the glass fall

 

Whoa, now I know why the radio went silent

Now I know why that was the last time

You closed the door, I closed my heart

Thought I needed to be free

I kept you locked away, and you didn’t keep me

WAIT FOR ME IN THE MORNING

Lyrics by Nathaniel Cox & Olivia Jane

Music by Robert Davis & Nathaniel Cox

 

Wait for me in the morning when the moon is going down

Wait for me in the morning till you see me come around

Park the car low, down by the meadow

Gotta leave this city now

Oh, won’t you help me out, won’t you help me out

 

I took a man’s life for something that he never should have done

I took a man’s life for gunning my baby to the ground

And getting clearer in every mirror is a shadow of what I done

Now help me, lord, to run

 

And at every turn I hear the wind cry your name

And in every bed where I lay, I wake up to that sound going

Bang, bang, bang

 

(Oooooh)

 

So wait for me in the morning when the moon is going down

Wait for me in the morning till you see me come around

Park the car low, down by the meadow

Gotta leave this city now

Oh, won’t you help me out

Oh, won’t you help me out

Gotta leave this city now

Oh, won’t you help me out

Won’t you, won’t you, won’t you

Won’t you, won’t you, won’t you

 

I’m running into the dawn

Take my hand and we’ll be gone

A WAY OUT

Lyrics by Robert Davis, Nathaniel Cox, & Olivia Jane

Music by Robert Davis & Nathaniel Cox

 

Maybe there’ll be ground beneath my fall

Maybe there’s a way out after all

The voices deep down that I’ve known begin to shout

Maybe then there’ll be a way out

 

Oh, my my, your face it says it all

But I’ve never known you to lose control

If I could I’d take with me all of your doubt

Maybe then you’d see a way out

 

Watching the stars that seem to fade out of view

I’m leavin’ in the lonely light of the morning

Just a stranger passing through

 

Stay with me a little longer then

Tell me that you’ll see me soon again

Focus your faith in that long winding path

That someday it might lead a way back

 

Look at me once more like you did

On the day when I was just a kid

Lost in a world that was filled up with doubt

Maybe then I’d see a way out

 

Watching the stars that seem to fade out of view

And leave you with the lonely light of the morning

Just a stranger passing through

 

Watching the stars that seem to fade out of view

I’m leavin’ in the lonely light of the morning

Watching the stars that seem to fade out of view

And leave you with the lonely light of the morning

Just a stranger passing through

 

(Ooooooh)

 

You slip through my hands and you leave me no doubt

Someday I’ll find a way out

IRENE

Lyrics by Olivia Jane

Music by Robert Davis & Nathaniel Cox

 

Sweet smile woman, so my life won't bore me

Tell me where I'm going in your mind's eye

Call on St. Germain who's hanging up above me

Tell me that I'm gonna meet somebody who'll love me

 

Horse-haired woman, tell me a story

Tell me where I'm going in your mind's eye

Horse-haired woman, tell me a story

Tell me where I'm going in your mind's eye

 

I’m stuck in conversations, between earth and air

Trouble in mind, now help me, dear Irene, to take care

Wake me up and send me out

Obliterate the voices that are housing me in aching doubt

 

Whoa, horse-haired woman, tell me a story

Tell me where I’m going in your mind’s eye

Horse-haired woman, tell me a story

Tell me where I'm going in your mind's eye

 

(rpt Chorus)

 

In your mind’s eye

In your mind’s eye

In your mind’s eye

DREAM TO LIVE IN

Lyrics by Nathaniel Cox & Olivia Jane

Music by Nathaniel Cox & Olivia Jane

 

On a cold misty morning over the mountain

Sons and daughters lift their heads and found

Way down in the deep recesses of those

That came before them, lived a dream of them

 

Oh, what a dream to live in

Oh, what a dream to live in

 

High on a hill, far over an ocean

Stood the daughter of a land unknown

Clutching a written letter of living

Words unspoken, of a dream of her

 

Oh, what a dream to live in

Oh, what a dream to live in

Oh, what a dream to live in

Oh, what a dream to live in

 

Far away, breathing their names

They rose unbound and sang of home

Home, tales of a dream of golden ground

 

Oh, what a dream to live in

Oh, what a dream to live in

Oh, what a dream to live in

Oh, what a dream

 

In another world, in another time, in another place unseen

In another world, in another time, in another place unseen

STRANGE

Lyrics by Olivia Jane

Music by Robet Davis & Nathaniel Cox

 

Ain’t it strange how your knees are shaking

And your hearts are breaking

But we’ll forget it all tomorrow

Ain’t it strange, all your pressed-suit promises

And you’re trumpeting our flawlessness

But we’ll forget it all tomorrow

 

Let the sun kiss your face, sigh in the breeze

Don’t look over your shoulder, boy

Relax, be at ease

 

Ain’t it a shame, bloody fists on the brick walls

Nobody hearing your calls

And hearts screaming into nothing

Ain’t it a shame, they’ve twisted your cries

Made a mixture of lies

But we’ll forget it all tomorrow

 

Let the sun kiss your face, sigh in the breeze

Don’t look over your shoulder, girl

Relax, be at ease

 

They knot up your voice with a star-spangled shroud

But you’re coming in so clear, your march is so loud

Now hear me, love, hear me, love

You know you matter, you know you matter

 

I want the sun to kiss your face

For you to sigh in the breeze

Not have to look over your shoulder, now

Relax, be at ease

BE MINE

Lyrics by Olivia Jane

Music by Tyler Nelson & Olivia Jane

 

In the quiet I see only you

But there’s a melody inside and it’s calling you, too

Baby, have mercy on my burning heart

We’re both little fools if we ever should part

 

Look into these emerald eyes, you know I’ll carry you

Go on, say I’m wrong, I dare you

 

Play me a sweet bass line smooth like molasses

All we got is time, and all I wanna ask is

Be mine

 

Take a leap of faith with me and I’ll promise you the sun

I’ve got my feet on the ground waiting for you

You know that I’m the one, I don’t care what they’ll say

‘Cause they don’t know you like I do

My gypsy heart can’t live without you

 

And you know you can’t live without me, too

Go on, say I’m wrong, I dare you

 

Just please play me that sweet bass line smooth like molasses

All we got is time, and all I wanna ask is

Be mine

 

(Oooooh)

 

Play me that sweet bass line smooth like molasses

All we’ve got is time and all I wanna ask is

All I wanna ask is

All I wanna ask is

Be mine

Baby, be mine

 

Oh

When your world is cruel and cold I’ll be yours until we’re old

Just please, dear heart, be mine

 

Yeah

Baby, be mine

Be all mine

Baby, be mine

Oh—yeah—whoa—whoa

Baby, be mine

THE FISHERMAN

Lyrics by Olivia Jane

Music by Robert Davis, Nathaniel Cox, & Olivia Jane

 

The day the fisherman came ashore

Was the day his soul had drowned

There came a sadness in his eyes

A black mood and not a sound

Walled in by concrete and whiskey

Pulled into the thick smoke of land

He curled his toes inside steel-toed boots

Feeling for a wisp of phantom sand

 

Bring me home, he sang, home to the water

Bring me back to the life of my mother and father

I'll be sure at last and forever be free

When my lungs are full of the life of the sea

 

He sank down into a battered bar stool

The whole world rusting beneath

His mind set adrift on the sea once more

A cold knot between his teeth

 

Bring me home, he sang, home to the water

Bring me back to the life of my mother and father

I'll be sure at last and forever be free

When my lungs are full of the life of the sea

 

Boots slung over his shoulders, stood 

In the dirty weather taking form

The fisherman’s hands pulled on his oars

Rowing hard into the heart of the storm

Bring on the crack of the waves, he yelled

I am ready for the restless fight

Then he slept in the cradle of the calm

As the storm passed in the night

 

Bring me home, he sang, home to the water

Bring me back to the life of my mother and father

I'll be sure at last and forever be free

When my lungs are full of the life of the sea

 

(Oooooh) (rpt. Chorus)

Of the life of the sea (x2)

AMSTERDAM

Lyrics by Olivia Jane

Music by Robert Davis & Nathaniel Cox

 

Today was a mirage
Side-lined and surprised
Listening at last
Seeing through new eyes

Catching my reflection
In rivers of light
Time to look up now
Travel through the night

 

Farewell, Amsterdam
Until next time, Joe
So long, goodbye, jungle lullabies
Gonna get up and go

Farewell, Amsterdam

Until next time, friend

So long, goodbye, jungle lullabies

Till we meet here again

 

Gray haze on the north bridge
Mists me again
And I blow it a kiss
So it can't keep me in
You look like Eden

From a window in the sky
And on the ground's

My wasted time

 

Farewell, Amsterdam
Until next time, Joe
So long, goodbye, jungle lullabies
Gonna get up and go

Farewell, Amsterdam

Until next time, friend

So long, goodbye, jungle lullabies

Till we meet here again

 

(rpt chorus)

 

Farewell, Amsterdam
Until next time, Joe
So long, goodbye, jungle lullabies
I love you so
