Track Name: Bouquet
and you told me that the past only separates
you consoled me brought me flowers and a smile
and you told me that the past only separates
it cut like a knife on the edge of my life
too many years have you played with this heart
all that i see is a cluster of hate bound by thread
Track Name: Dove
if i could see you fly, as graceful as a dove
if i could hear you sing, as haunting as the dawn

if you knew my name or recognized my face
we speak every day is my love misplaced
the salad days are gone
the sun is setting fast
who am i to you
my face is downcast
Track Name: Backseat Reflections
and the sun is setting
and the birds are singing
and the moon is rising
and my flesh is crying
your words are seething
your sadness cuts me deep
if i was your best friend
i'd let you lay it out
most people are angry
or trying to get upset
i'm not going to exclude you
and i'm no anomaly

everyone's hoping for affection
as if there's nothing more we need
nothing less than perfection
or more than forgiveness

you know me as a brother
a friend and a foe
but do i know myself
when it gets down to it
who do you think that i am
when my eyes are closed
i wish i could tell you
but i don't really know

you're my friend and i love you
please keep moving on
