Track Name: The Mime
The Mime

Now the mime is walking circles,
In a box made out of air.
Outside a storm is brewing,
Leaves are blowing everywhere.

Around the corner fate steps in,
And tells you what you need.
A faithful pig drags down the street,
He is sowing his own seed.

I’d love to tell you more or less,
Or more than you might need.
I’d like to crack a silver bell,
Or ride a bareback steed.

And things continue down a path,
A path of broken dreams.
And lamps have shades to keep the glare,
From bursting out in streams.

Thinking of times of olde,
When laughs and dreams were made of gold.
And I remember your pretty face,
Outside the gates of the land of grace.
We wrote our names upon the wall,
Like those before, come one, come all.
And that was Memphis, Tennessee,
Along the banks of the Mississippi, baby.

I think that I should tell you babe,
That I do lie to myself.
I think that when I turn around,
I put you on a shelf.

These images deep in my mind,
Of life and love and thee,
Are wrenching forth out of my soul,
And taking over me.

I need to break the quiet line,
The place of want and need,
And move myself to brighter days,
To a more eternal speed.

And if the turn of this small prayer,
Could take me off my knees,
I’d wish for you a safe return,
To life upon a breeze.

Thinking of times of olde,
When laughs and dreams were made of gold.
And I remember your pretty face,
Outside the gates of the land of grace.
We wrote our names upon the wall,
Like those before, come one, come all.
And that was Memphis, Tennessee,
Along the banks of the Mississippi, baby.
Track Name: Many A Girl (Back Of A Sail)
Many A Girl (Back Of A Sail)

Run away, run away, little French girl,
You know that you’re making me sick?
That ego hurts your posture,
Like a communist stuck in a ditch.
With the trials and the journeys,
That we’ve been through,
I would hope you could see where I am,

Fly away, fly away, lift up with the wind,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!

Back of a sail, back of a sail,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!

Run away, run away, little gypsy girl,
The weather is turning again.
Your mother is calling you home now,
And it really is time for a trip.
Oh I’ll miss your words,
And your soft gentle touch,
Late nights have been really a gas.

Fly away, fly away, lift up with the wind,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!

Back of a sail, back of a sail,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!

Carry on, carry on, oh sly little girl,
With your beauteous, curious lips.
Your laughter fills up the ballroom,
Humbleness your greatest gift.
And you soar through the sky,
On your tiny white cloud,
It’s really a sight, oh, to see.

Fly away, fly away, lift up with the wind,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!

Back of a sail, back of a sail,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!

Back of a sail, back of a sail,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!

So this was the story of many a girl,
And there’s many a girl left to meet.
This one’s an artist and this one’s a waitress,
And this one she begs on the street.
Oh, all of them search through their lives,
Till they find, a combination, or maybe a key:

Fly away, fly away, lift up with the wind,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!

Back of a sail, back of a sail,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!

Back of a sail, back of a sail,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!

Back of a sail, back of a sail,
Tomorrow’s on the back of a sail!
