(#1) SOLITUDE    1/87

WHEN I NEED SOLITUDE THAT IS ALL THAT CAN MAKE ME FEEL GOOD
WHEN I NEED MUSIC THAT IS ALL THAT CAN MAKE ME FEEL GOOD
WHEN I BEEN DRINKIN' WHISKEY THAT IS ALL etc.
WHEN I NEED YOUR LOVIN' ARMS AROUND ME THAT IS ALL.........

DISSOLVE THESE ACHIN' BLUES
SHAKE IT UP, CUT ME LOOSE
EVAPORATE THESE CLOUDS OF GREY
CAUSE I NEED THE SUN TODAY

I FEEL FRAGILE AS A FLOWER IN A HAILSTORM repeat
I'M RESTLESS AS THE WIND AND MY HEART'S TORN

SO HOLD ME LIKE YOU MEAN IT
KISS ME LIKE YOU FEEL IT TOO

I'M HERE BECAUSE I WANNA BE
NOT BECAUSE I'M TIED TO YOU
I'M NOT TIED TO YOU, NO,NO, NO.

LOVE IS A TWO WAY STREET
IT DOESN'T MOVE ONE WAY
SOLITUDE IS EASY,BUT IT MIGHT CAUGHT YOU ONE DAY

WHEN I NEED OPEN SPACE ALL AROUND
THAT IS ALL THAT CAN MAKE ME FEEL GOOD
WHEN I NEED THE LAUGHTER OF A FRIEND I'VE FOUND THAT IS ALL.....
WHEN IT COMES TUMBLIN' DOWN I'LL DISAPPEAR AND GO
UNDERGROUND, I'M IN DARKNESS, WAITING

DISSOLVE THESE ACHIN' BLUES
SHAKE IT UP, CUT ME LOOSE
I WANNA HOLD YOU CLOSE AND STAY
BUT I NEED TO FLY AWAY


(#2) NUANGOLAE            10/86

WALKIN' WELL KNOWN DOWN THE AVENUE
I CAN HURT IF I WANT TO
THE PAIN IS DEEP AND TRUE

I CAN CRY OVER WHAT HAS BEEN BUT I DON'T WANT TO

I JUST WANT TO LAUGH AND SING
AND CELEBRATE THE LOVE WITHIN repeat

I CAN SWIM INTO YOUR EYES OF BLUE ANYTIME THAT I WANT TO
BUT HOW CAN I FIND YOU ?
YOUR ILLUSIVE AS LIGHT CAN BE HOW CAN I FIND YOU

I JUST WANNA LAUGH AND SING....

WHEN I'M DOWNTOWN, RUNNIN' ANY TIME ROUND
DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
THEN I TURN AROUND AND I'M FACIN' RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU
WHAT DO YOU KNOW, YOU WERE LOOKIN' LOGIC FOR ME TOO
WHO ARE WE TRYIN' TRYING TO FOOL HERE?
HOW CAN I FORGET ABOUT IT?

NUANGOLAE......

WELL YOU START THE FIRE BURNIN'
AND YOU MAKE ME VERY HAPPY
AS FAR AS TIME GOES, I'M TIRED OF YEARNIN'
WHEN I HEAR YOUR DEEP HEART SPEAKING
WHAT DO YA KNOW
YOU WANNA DREAM WITH ME TOO
NOW WE'RE PAST THE FEAR AND WORRY
LORD LET'S ENJOY THIS MOMENT.


(#3) No Lyrics


(#4) MESA SEA

I live on a sea of sage
And the dolphins there are very strange
They dance as clouds upon the sky
Because it's bluer there and they love the sea blue air

The wind sets sail these sheets of rain
On this vast and mighty empty plain
But the only fish that you will see
Are the jack and the snake and the coyote

The space rolls far as the eye can see
Till the mountain islands suddenly
Come rising up into the view
And call to your heart as islands do
Yes, they call to my heart as islands do

Here on this land I see ft sun rise and fall
Horizon to horizon
Here on this land I am removed from it all
But you know it's what I wanted
Watching the stars fall, hearing coyote call
And when the moon is full we howl too
Here on this land I am making my dreams come true
But in truth the dream made me


(#5) RUNNING        DEC. 1981


I'm chasin' the moon at 85 mph the sun is creeping behind me
I'm free and I'm strong and I'm travelling alone
No one can find me
It's the magical matrix of night set and dayrise
The balance of silver and gold
And I'm flyin high cloaked in the sky
And the shivering cold
I'M RUNNING I don't know what I'm gonna find
Running along the fore divided line
RUNNING, RUNNING, RUNNING

Dashing with speed through the light flash descending
Time could weaken this pace
My body's on cruise control, wide eyed and soul fried
But I got this placebo at least
There's no mercy in money, or miles, or direction
You gotta fight to make it
But when you're distressed and your life is a mess
Then you just gotta take it and go running
I don't know what I'm gonna find
Running along the divided line Running, Running, Running



(#7) LOVE IS WORK            DEC. 1985

You know I loved you and I tried and I tried and tried
No matter what I did you still weren't satisfied
After it's said and done you say you want me back
How in the hell do you expect me to react to that?
LOVE IS WORK

You know it's easy when you look at me so starry eyed
But then it gets all tangled and strangled up inside
Why can't it be just like the stories say it can
And we could be real, a woman and a man it's not that easy
LOVE IS WORK

You think you've got it real good
And then your love's just sort of slippin' away
You think you're feelin' real
You think you're in love and in love you'll stay
I'd turn around but I've got nothing to say

And now we're dealin' in the land of law and order
We're playin' tough in the fourth down of the last quarter
It's go for broke and put your hands upon the table
So much for the myth of love, the tale and the fable.


(#8) GOODNIGHT                           MAY 1983

Goodnight, crawl into bed, turn out the light
And rest your sleepy head and you'll be alright
'Cause I'm watching over you

Goodnight, hear the crickets sing any song you'd like
What will the angels bring to dreamland tonight
They're watchin' over you
They'll bring you dreams about love
And of flying about the most magical lands
Where the friendly trees live
You'll dream of the journeys through time and encounters divine
Where the wise ones will tell you all you need to know

Goodnight, etc.

Rock-a-bye baby in the tree tops
When the wind blows the cradle will rock
And you will be alright 'cause I'm watchin' over you


(#9) RAIN COPIES

C 1988 Jenny Bird

Look over there, answer to prayers, rain comes

Drip on the sill, buckets to fill, rain comes

Nourish the ground,rumbling sound, rain comes

Smells so sweet, cool breeze breaks the heat, rain comes.

Oh, it's been so dry, blistering sky, days go by

No hay to bale, crops sure to fail, days go by

Still buzz in the air, no gods seem to care, days go by

Cracks in the earth, no signs of rebirth, days go by.

Our ancestors danced and sang for the rain to fall

We've forgotten their ways and words, there's no rain at all

Drought fills the land, fertile ground to desert sand

So precious, please don't forget us, spirit of the rain.


repeat first verse



(#10) WILD ONES                 C I989 Jenny Bird

They're puttin' up houses in the places you call sacred

In the cornfields and the mesas and the shores of the sea.

It's there I knew your faces, now you see the traces

Of the encroachment of civilized humanity.

You'd better run, Wild Ones, run while you can

We're takin' away your land and you've got nowhere else to go

You'd better fly, Wild Ones, fly to a place where you can nest and be safe

You'd better run.

Endangered for your lives, extinct before our eyes,

You need room to roam, to raise your young and call your own

Only a few now have the privilege of breathing free and living

Like you have, before the dawn of man.

Cougars, lions, and dolphins, elephants and falcons,

Totem spirit of the bear and eagles of the air.

Rain forests tall, rare plants and flowers all,, no

They can't run away, they're slaughtered everyday

In fifty years we killed the buffalo

Fifty years from now what will we know

We'll have to wait and see if theres air that's fit to breath.

It's no secret the ozone disappears

This alone inspires my greatest fears

That our children and our Earth so fine will be the next in line.






(#11) MAINELAND SHORELINE               1987 Jenny Bird


Watching the pulsating swell of the sea

Where my ancestors dwell on the edge of the harbor,

And live from the bounty of the ocean and the land

I gather my strength from my roots in this sand,


On the Maineland Shoreline

Where my family lives with the sea all around

On the Maineland Shoreline

Where some we're lost to sea and never were found.


Come sit by the fire and hear of the story

Of a fishing mans work and a fishing mans glory

And a fishing mans death on a warf on the harbor

He could not support his family on the,


Maineland shoreline

So he took his own life and he left them alone

On the Maineland shoreline

Where my Grandma continued a life on her own.


My Mother and her Grandmother and her Grandma too

Love the wild unpredictable way of the water

And I learn their legacy to know what they knew

And to pass it on down to my own daughters


Chorus



(#12) EYES OF INNOCENCE        11/88

WHO KNOWS FOR SURE WHAT MAY OR MAY NOT BE
THE QUESTIONING MIND WILL FIND SERENITY
WHAT LIES BEYOND THIS?
FOLLOW YOUR BLISS AND YOU'LL SEE

LOOK IN MY EYES AND TELL ME TRULY
DID YOU EVER THINK YOU WOULD FIND
SOMEONE TO SHARE THIS DREAM WITH
I HAD NOT A CLUE WHAT JOY LAY BEFORE ME WITH YOU

IN THE EYES OF INNOCENCE, THERE IS NO PAIN
IN THE EYES OF INNOCENCE, THERE'S NO LOSS OR GAIN
IN THE EYES OF INNOCENCE

TODAY I WATCHED THE SNOW FALL
NOTHING ELSE COULD STIR MY SOUL
BUT THE SPRINKLING SKY
AND THE LAUGHTER IN MY LITTLE ONES EYES

PERFECTION OF THE MOMENT IS SO FLEETING
IT'S HERE AND GONE
WHAT MAKES YOU SMILE, WHAT MAKES IT WORTHWHILE?
WHAT MAKES YOUR LIFE WORTH LIVING?

IN THE EYES OF INNOCENCE, THERE IS NO SORROW
IN THE EYES OF INNOCENCE, THERE'S NO TOMORROW
IN THE EYES OF INNOCENCE
AND THE HEARTH FIRES SMOKE SMELLS SWEET
AND EACH CHILD IN THE WORLD SHINES THRU YOU
HOW DO WE LEARN TO HATE

WELL THERE'S A GRAND POLITICAL SOLUTION
THAT IN THE LONG RUN DOESN'T MEAN A THING
THERE'S THE CONSTANT BATTLE OF CORRUPTION AND GREED
AND HEALING THE EARTH AND HELPING THOSE IN NEED
BUT TIME IS A WARRIOR GREATER THAN WE
FOLLOW YOUR BLISS AND YOU'LL SEE.




(#13) NO MORE TIME             C 1988 Jenny Bird

Well there's no more time, the days just slip away like water
Since you've been mine and our love shines thru our little angel daughter
I love you so my heart aches with our lives entwined
I love you so my heart breaks baby, but 1 don't mind it
As long as you're with me all the while.


This pioneering life is hard, it keeps you busy and it makes you tired
When your house ain't done and the car won't run
And the baby's cryin' and the dust is flyin'
You say I'm a prairie queen, with a load of laundry and a washin' machine
And it's endless tryin' to keep it all clean but I don't mind it
As long as you're with me all the while.


They say opposites attract, well I believe that's a fact
Dicotomies run thru our days, and everything we do in different ways
I like story books of angel wings and you like monsters by Stephen King
But they seem to have the same basic theme so I don't mind it
As long as you're with me all the while


How far away can paradise be when you're lyin' so close to me
Even though we're in a different dream baby I don't mind it
As long as you're with me all the while


Before you know it the kids'll be grown
Runnin' off and leavin' home but I won't mind it
As long as you're with me, as long as you stay with me
As long as we're happy all the while.


(#14) AJI'S ANGEL SONG

C 1989 Jenny Bird

I have an angel who lives inside me

Who walks beside me in my darkest hour

Who heals my deepest wounds and sings the sweetest tunes.


I have an angel who is my friend

And let's me pretend about all my dreams

Tell me how to be the best I can be in this world

In this world of mine, in this world so fine, in this world


My angel wears rainbows and stars that shine

We are together all the time

Gold shines in my heart

My angel and I will never part



In this world of mine, in this world so fine, in this world.




(#15) SO GLAD TO BE HERE      8/86

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER I WANNA FEEL THE WATER FLOWIN'
BACK HOME TO THE MESA WHERE THE WIND PLAYS ON MY FACE
SEE THE SUN, SEE THE MOON SETTING TOGETHER
OH MY GOD, HOW I LOVE THIS PLACE

CHORUS: I'M SO GLAD TO BE HERE repeat4x

THIS LIFE IS SO DELICATE AND FRAGILE
HOLD IT LIGHTLY, LIVE IT OPEN, LIVE IT FREE
MOTHER EARTH, FATHER SKY
THANK-YOU FOR YOUR BOUNTY
I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR ALL YOU GIVE TO ME

CHORUS

HOLD ME, HOLD ME, HOLD ME TO YOUR HEARTBEAT
SO QUIET AND GENTLE AND SO JOYFULLY
I'M SINGIN' SO HAPPY, 00 IT FEELS GOOD
EVEN THROUGH SORROW, I'M REMINDED THAT I AM

CHORUS


(#16) TAKING CHANCES      11/86

WHAT DO I SEE IN YOU, WHAT DO YOU SEE IN ME?
THAT DRAWS ME TO YOU LIKE A MAGNET TO AN IRON
WHAT LIES BETWEEN THE BITTER AND THE SWEET
THAT LURES ME TO YOU LIKE A MOTH TO A FIRE

I'M TAKIN' CHANCES BETWEEN TWO LOVERS AND MY OWN SOUL
I'M TAKIN' CHANCES OF BEIN' LEFT IN THE COLD
I'M TAKIN' CHANCES, WHAT CAN I DO?
BUT TAKE MY CHANCES WITH YOU?

YOU USED TO CAST ME AWAY SO CRUELLY
SO CAUTIOUS AND SO COLD
NOW YOUR WARMING LIKE THE WEATHER AND I FEEL YOU CARE
I KNOW YOU SO WELL, I DON'T KNOW YOU AT ALL
AND WHEN WE'RE CLOSE TOGETHER I GET SO SCARED

I'M TAKIN' CHANCES, IT'S THE BATTLES OF THE HEART
I'M TAKIN' CHANCES OF BEIN' LEFT IN THE DARK
THE UNIVERSE IS CHANGIN' AND I'M CHANGIN' TOO
SO I'LL TAKE MY CHANCES WITH YOU

WE'VE BOTH BEEN IN LOVE BEFORE THIS AIN'T NOTHIN' NEW
YOU SAY WE'RE DESTINED TO LOVE AGAIN
THAT WE'RE JUST PASSIN' THRU
BUT OUR PATHS HAVE BROUGHT US HERE
AND WE'RE BEIN' HONEST AND TRUE
AND THOUGH YOU WON'T GIVE YOURSELF AWAY
CAN YOU TAKE YOUR CHANCES ON ME TOO?
CAUSE I'M FALLIN' DEEP
I CAN'T SLEEP
YOUR BEING HERE SURE MEANS ALOT
BUT REALLY DARLIN', WHAT HAVE WE GOT?
WE'RE TAKIN' CHANCES




(#17) UNITY                      1987 Jenny Bird


I may depart for the strength of aloneness
But when your joined as one with me I feel the unity of life
I'm complete within and you are whole
We blend and emerge as a universal soul, so come together in
UNITY, UNITY, you know it makes us stronger
UNITY, UNITY, separation is no longer
UNITY, UNITY, alchemize your visions of unity


Everyone yearns for the strength of connection
To affirm our selves in camaraderie
We share the knowledge of living
As a tribe of humans we're learning to be giving,, so come together in
UNITY, UNITY etc.


Now it's time for injustice to leave us
No harm or hurt or assault need come between us
We weave a life thread that's woven thru all
It's time to wake up, and see the sense, before we fall
UNITY, UNITY etc.
