Track Name: Life In Production
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

Somebody tell me
A story of how it feels
To find inspiration of a lifetime
Remind me what is real
Words long unspoken
Cast in new light
Staged inside my brain
Trust my heart to get it right

A backdrop of beauty
A stage of sky and stone
Hammer home the love
Keep me grounded to the bone
Paint a picture of truth
Within the nonsense of the scene
Crazy actions cue
Mindful reactions in me

I've been watching a play for years
Walked a million miles of intention
Round a little town of fear
Now the new direction is clear
In this live production
Be myself or nothing
Make the roles all disappear

Somebody show me
What I already know
Could be an extra in a silent movie
Or write and direct the show
About a hard working man
Finding love in the world
Improvising lines on how
The boy gets the girl
Drama, comedy, music, movement
With the pain

I’ve been watching a play for years
Content to play the victim
The misunderstood hero
Now the new direction is clear
In this live production
Be myself or nothing
Make the roles all disappear

Now the lights shine and
Dance on the stage
Supporting cast of teachers
Every stripe every age
A breakout role as
I find love within me

Now I knew that old play for years
Spoke a million lines of intention
On a stage set in the mirror
Now the new direction is clear
In this live production
Be myself or nothing
Make the roles all disappear

Life in production
No script only change
Find ourselves in roles
We don't expect to play
And pray we have the range
And when the credits roll
To be understood and recognized
With love from the critic
Behind our own eyes

Track Name: Follow Me Down
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

With the courage to create
A whole and imperfect life
Follow me down
Thru crashing waves and shadow night
I may never reach the moon
But I can still hold it in my hand
The silver softness whispers
I understand

In the misty darkness
With the critic and the crazy dreaming man
I remember to stop and I begin again

Calling out to all loyal soldiers
At war for my security
Follow me down
Throw your arms into the sea
From the rocky shores
Of longing and uncertainty
Follow me down

The battle for the sun
Is overcome and never won
Morning signs of victory
In the evening new lines are drawn
Swords and broken shields
Drift like flotsam with the breeze
Riding tides of rhythm and harmony

In the dusky darkness
Soldiers cry out take my hand
I stop and I begin again

Calling out to all loyal soldiers
At war for my security
Follow me down
Throw your arms into the sea
From the rocky shores
Of longing and uncertainty
Follow me down

In the fading darkness
My voice rises above the wind
I stop and I begin again

Calling out to all loyal soldiers
At war for my security
Follow me down
Throw your arms into the sea
From the rocky shores
Of longing and uncertainty
Follow me down

Track Name: I Don't See Why
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

I quit the bottle slowed down the car
Tempered the tendency to go too far
Suit up nice shine my shoes
Laid down the law that I will never lose
I do what’s right just to have you
I know you know just what to do
If I know what’s true

So I don’t see why you don’t belong to me
I don’t see why you don’t belong to me

The first to know with the biggest laugh
I promise you I’ll be the better half
Take what’s mine won’t hesitate
Keep each piece in each proper place
All in control just for you
Think I deserve a little follow thru
It’s only right that I have you
I expect the world to know what to do
If I know what’s true

So I don’t see why you don’t belong to me
I don’t see why you don’t belong to me

If we all have to follow rules
Why do I feel such a desperate fool
Aren’t we all just in this to win
Recalculate and figure
Just what I’m missing

I don’t understand why you don’t want me
I play the rules yet feel a fool
Oh you taunt me
I press so hard have so many things
I feel so small why won’t you save me

I don’t see why you won’t belong to me
I don’t see why you don’t belong to me

Track Name: Lost Until I'm Found
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn & Sean Zigmund)

There’s every reason to stay home
Keep up with laundry answer the phone
Manage solutions for all I’m not doing
Keep a crazy pace to save me from ruin

This town has left me alone and bare
My heart is aching running scared
On the road I’ll wander
Off to where I’m bound
And I’ll stay lost until I’m found

Take it all with me in my pocket
I’ve lived too long inside my head
Walk into a labyrinth
At peace but not at rest
Color my days in mystery
Instincts guiding me as friends
And this road may never end

I’m a long way away
As good as gone each passing day
Just let the wind blow me around
Keep me lost until I’m found
Keep me lost until I’m found

Take it all with me in my pocket
I’ve lived too long inside my head
Walk into a labyrinth
At peace but not at rest
Color my days in mystery
Instincts guiding me as friends
And this road will never end

All my searching may not
Lead me anywhere
Only know that certain change
Will lead me there
Walk my days in these old shoes
Worn into the ground
And I’ll stay lost until I’m found

Track Name: No Place
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

Open spaces
A moment in time
Somewhere someone
Has made up his mind
The sky as witness
He lays down his defenses

Draws a circle
Around the horizon
Walks the distance
In the blink of an eye
He’s just a point of view
Living thru his senses

Mystery is all there is
When you’re mystified
You got to know what’s in
Before you get what’s outside

At last no place to be
In a world with no place to hide
And in all he’ll ever need
He sees there’s everything left to find

Darkest valley
Deepest sea
Between two points
Is a mountain of dreams
Runoff and resistance
He considers the potential

He says, Take me river
Flow me away
Make my whole life
Happen every day
And he tries so hard
To live on what’s essential

Mystery is all there is
When you’re mystified
You got to know what’s in
Before you get what’s outside

At last no place to be
In a world with no place to hide
And in all he’ll ever need
He sees there’s everything left to find

Track Name: This Moment
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

What have we done
Where will we be
I see that worried look in your eye
A reflection of my question looking back at me
Is our love strong enough to survive
I’ve been good to you
And I’ve been bad
You’ve brought me many tears
And made me oh so glad
Time we thought it might be over
And time when there was
Nothing in our way

But no hopes or fears today
For the future
No longing for the past
No time for regrets
Just let me hold you
Make this moment last

There’ll be time left over tomorrow
Lord knows there was time left over yesterday
To count all the many things we haven’t done
And the obstacles in our way
Still we go on and we complain
Resisting every change that comes our way
Time keeps racing on and on
Stopping and waiting for no one

But no hopes or fears today
For the future
No longing for the past
No time for regrets
Just let me hold you
Make this moment last

I remember looking forward to the day
We’d have memories to look
Back upon and smile
Neglecting all the while
What was clear to see
Forever looking past
What was near to me

We go on and we complain
Resisting every change that comes our way
Time keeps racing on and on
Stopping and waiting for no one

But no hopes or fears today
For the future
No longing for the past
No time for regrets
Just let me hold you
Make this moment last

Track Name: Dance In The Water
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

So tired of wading
In the tide so deep and blue
Guiding you in the rhythm
As waves roll over you
I’ll dry off your body
I’ll warm your blood and bones
I’ll do all I can do
But you’ve gotta

Dance in the water
And you know you gotta swim
Or you’ll sink to the bottom
Oh it’s a sad place to be

Hounded to submission
By the demons in your dreams
Hiding in the shadows
Of excess and extreme
Chased on down the highway
By a pack of bad memories
Run all you want to
But you gotta

Dance in the water
And you know you gotta swim
Or you’ll sink to the bottom
Oh that’s a sad place to be

I can’t stop forever
The flood with its heavy load
Rising up and over
You know the dam will explode
We’re all taken by the river
Caught up in the current and the flow
We do all we can do
But we gotta

Dance in the water
And you know you gotta swim
Or you’ll sink to the bottom
Oh that’s a sad place to be

Track Name: Come To The Circle
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

I know it’s easy
To break apart
To lose the love
And find the dark
Put in remission
Unlighted dreams
Disintegrate
Swallow the screams
And so it happens
Thru all the haze
A voice deep down and quiet
Whispers in my brain
Tells me

Come to the circle
Hold the center
Sing the silence
Forge connection
Walk the spiral
Dance eternal light and love

To stumble’s easy
On a road so hard
A thousand alleyways
Along the boulevard
Step into a prison
With mind-numbing ease
Sample gourmet illusions
Pretend it’s all free
Channel distractions
Pixel-perfect games
Then a low steady voice
Whispers my name
Tells me

Come to the circle
Hold the center
Sing the Silence
Forge connection
Walk the spiral
Dance eternal light and love
With your brothers and sisters
Create a vision of action
Bring the mission from the mountain
Dance eternal light and love
And peace

And so we listen
Or we turn away
Either way, voices are crying
Calling our names, singing

Come to the circle
Hold the center
Sing the silence
Forge connection
Walk the spiral
Dance eternal light and love
And Peace

Track Name: Saving Up
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

Late at night
I lie awake and I dream
Whisper her name
And tuck it under my pillow
Again and again
Hope flows downstream
Waters quench the thirst
Of the weeping willow

Flowers smile and flirt
And give me their names
She walks beside me
Laughing in their glory
Tho trees recall
The solitude of that day
Petals pressed in pages
Tell a different story

And all the loneliness I’m paying for
I’m saving up to spend with you
And if all begins to fade with the light
I’ll lie awake and dream some more

Evening hangs
On the red rays of the sun
It fades and flashes
Bright on her face In the twilight
Sparks, thunder, laughter
Electric abandon
A clap mocks my heart
And echoes into the night

And all the loneliness I’m paying for
I’m saving up to spend with you
And if all begins to fade with the light
I’ll lie awake and dream some more

Ribbons and waves
Shimmer and drape from the stars
The moon watches
The aurora dance with a stranger
A twisted tale
A path of light through the dark
A celestial trail
That winds up deep in her heart

And if all begins to fade with the light
I’ll lie awake and dream some more

Track Name: Never Only A Dream
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

Standing in the center of a circle
Directions intersect
The golden space inside
In silence my reflection is mirrored
By trees and wind and birds
And Earth and Sky
Woman walks thru the fire
Of the setting sun
Whispering a dark picture
Of desire and longing
In a red desert chill
My heart grows still
She calls my name
In a haunting shadow song

I say to myself
I’m tired of dying
As I drink in a vision
Of what’s left of me
A child takes my hand and says
“This really is all that is seems
You know it’s never only a dream”

Wandering in a crowd of people
Each soul a face I almost recognize
A message from a man
With a mission takes my hand
Leads me to a mountain I begin to climb
Voices drift on the promise
Of the rising sun
Lifting my heart from fear
To love and longing
In a blanket of spring
Green mountains sing
I reach out and embrace
This radiant song

And I say to myself
I’m no longer hiding
As the source opens
Lucid and wide
The old crone says to me
“You know that you know what we need
And you know it’s never only a dream”

Track Name: Now I'm Home
(Words & Music by Perry Nunn)

Time I used to wander
Down streets lost and lonely as a gypsy
Aimless and determined
To find a ghost of reason to walk with me
Explained away the magic
Complexified the parts
Unraveled threads of mystery
Sewed and binded up my heart
And it’s hard not to turn the wrong way

You found me
With your spirit and your smile
Grounding me where I’m meant to be
I can hardly believe it’s all so simple
I love you
You love me
Now I’m home

Back when I would lift off from fields
Bold and blissful to the stars
Stride among the heavens
Reaching for the edges of how far
Couldn’t believe in guiding angels
Too much mystical design
The paths that led to heaven
Wound thru mazes in my mind
And I can’t forget those visions

Astound me
With your laughter and your light
Reflect back the universe to me
I can hardly believe it’s all this simple
I love you
You love me
Now I’m home

Times I still wander
Into a maze of shiny mystery
Ghosts and gypsies shadow
Crazy angels out in front
The more I think I feel I know
I turn and then I miss it
And it’s hard to turn the wrong way
If I keep leaning toward the sun

Surround me
With your radiance and wonder
Shine your grace for all to see
I can hardly believe it’s all so simple
I love you
You love me
Now I’m home
