Track Name: Come to Terms
Monday mornin' when I wave good-bye,
I'll be down on my luck,
There'll be no customary tear I cry,
And no pain in my gut.

Oh, I'll come to terms.
Yeah, I'll come to terms.
Oh, I'll come to terms.

Bought your diamond from the store we love,
From a siamese clerk
How much did I spend? - You know what they say..
They say "three months of work."

Oh, I'll come to terms.
Yeah, I'll come to terms.
Oh, I'll come to terms.

Hang up my hat and coat,
What's done is done.
There'll be no Chapel for this pair.
To have and two-halves-not sure make a whole,
And baby thats what's there.

Oh, I'll come to terms.
Yeah, I'll come to terms.
Oh, I'll come to terms.

They say it's easy 'cause there ain't no kids,
But baby that ain't so.
I'll take the spring off just to contemplate,
Oh, and to deal with the blow.

Oh, I'll come to terms.
Yeah, I'll come to terms.
Oh, I'll come to terms.

But I feel that True Love has truly been had.
And I know I'm feelin' it just more than a tad.
And I'll come to terms when it's so,
but true love's all that I know.
Track Name: True Love from the Stars
True Love from the Stars,
Never tear us apart,
When will I see you again,
on the Gregorian?

A Super Nova's motion,
Not to far from Goshen,
Where roamin' hills collide,
and this Trojan almost died.

Felt to young for you.
But that "not" I could not undo,
so let's tie one again,
Mmm before this all ends.

Yea we met again,
Mm this time as friends.
But the stars were still crossed.
And Jesus I was lost.

Why do I act like this?
I needed one swift kiss,
And that's what you gave to me,
Ohhh on Pleasant Street.

Feared you be taken away,
I took a vow so you'd stay,
but mysticism's so dark,
I sing tonight Angels Hark!

True Love from the Stars
Never tear us apart.

True Love from the Stars
Never tear us apart.

True Love from the Stars,
Never tear us apart,
When will I see you again,
on the Gregorian?
Track Name: Oolong, How Long?
Up on the staircase I couldn't tell by your face,
Then plans were hidden in your hair,
That mane of darkness, oh and how your heart shifts,
It's unannounced but still is there

Gripped like fish in talons your shiftin' toes to balance,
The reek of new love's holdin' high.
Your compass rose up. Nor'wes'. Sundress. Grown-up.
As long as you and I are nigh.

Oolong, how long? Oolong, how long? Oolong, how long until you go?

Speak of wish and wonder. Lustful hearts can wander.
I could name a hundred diffren' ways; How we love each other, now there is no others, each n' every night and every day

Oolong, how long? Oolong, how long? Oolong, how long until you go?

Be my mine to marry, won't you be my mine to marry?
There's just so much marry goin' roun'.
True Love just won't scold ya, no True Love just won't scold ya, Oh but how it knocks ya to the ground!

Oolong, how long? Oolong, how long? Oolong, how long until you go?

Tell me your sign. Won't you tell me your sign? Just don't say June or July.

Oolong, how long? Oolong, how long? Oolong, how long until you go?
Track Name: The Worry Takes Over
When you're away and I've things to do,
I sometimes succeed in them and other times too.
But looks can be deceiving and hard to read too.
I'm an addict of a feeling. I think you are too.
So we work on this together, oh inside and out,
Lovin' you forever without any doubt,
But to the fear of loss I'm tethered and I give my trust away,
To the One who is the lever of Life and Death's delay.
Woah.

It's been with me for ages, a fear within' itself.
Scared me and I hated it, Oh my mental health.
Paranoia laughs at me. Oh to be alone,
When the people all around you have left and you're still growin'. Woah.

The shock is undeniably slow to come on. Like a wave out of Africa westward bound.
That's why I broke down when I first met you. We seek the ones we need and right there I knew.
A purposeful life is all that we ask. The blessing of children to measure time's pass.
I'll find ways to deal with it as they grow old. Slowly congealing my thoughts so I'm told. Woah.

The taste in my mouth sparks a vision of a dream. That haunted me forever. Caged in and unseen. It's hard to explain and too easy to feel: the worry takes over, give to it we heal.

With loved ones around us it calms down the storm. The funny thing is, Love ain't where it's born.

Trust in the stress that never goes 'way. Comfortable moments in your quiver of days. Woah.
