Track Name: Letter to New York
Letter to New York

You fill my lungs with joy
You fill my lungs with noise
Koyote running wild
Crossing the sky, the time

Skyscrapers in my heart
Growing
Stretching my lungs

Ta da da ta da da
Ta da da ta da da

I build the time tunnel
Between your head and mine
Einstein was right
The distance makes no difference

And in the night I read your mind
And in the night you read my mind
And in the night we build the sky
We throw our phones into the Hudson River

Let it flow let it flow let it flow

Ta da da da ta da da
Ta da da da ta da da da

KOYOTE! Whose child is that? You’ll ask
Koyote! Whose child is that? You’ll ask
The wind’s, I’d say
The wind’s, I’d say
Cast away from all homes of
NEW YORK

Ta da da da ta da da da

Goodbye my dear
Goodbye my dear
Please write me soon
I miss you.
Black crow
Track Name: Distance
DISTANCE DISTANCE DISTANCE BREAKS MY HEART BREAKS MY HEART
Track Name: Like a Tiger
Like a Tiger

Babe I’m back
Look I’m bleeding
You said I’m like a tiger you said I would win
But I lost it that morning and no one was there

My heart’s like tiger
My heart’s like a boy

Babe it’s me
You shouldn’t scorn me
I’ll gather my powers I shall not complain
And when I see it coming I shall not turn away

My heart’s like tiger
My heart’s like a boy
Track Name: Wonderland
Wonderland

You saw the night falling
But you didn’t do a thing
You heard the night calling
But you didn’t say a thing

And I stood there watching
I couldn’t do a thing
I stood there watching
Watching how you go
I fall
Down
Down
Tell me how about our hearts
How about our hearts
What will happen to us

You saw the night falling
But you didn’t do a thing
You heard the night calling
But you didn’t say a thing

And I stood there watching
Watching how you go
I stood there watching
Watching how you go
I fall
Down
Down
Tell me how about our hearts
How about our hearts
What will happen to us

I fall
Down
Down
Like some kind of Alice
Into the Wonderland

How come
How come
How come my dress is smaller
Smaller than it was
How come my heart is bigger
Bigger than my chest

Tell me how about our hearts
How about our hearts
What will happen to us
I fall
Down
Down
Like some kind of Alice
Into the Wonderland
