Slippin' Away
You Know I Love You
It's Never Enough
Strange World
Mystery Of You
Seems Like Only Yesterday
Took It All Away
Love To Stay

All lyrics by Reggie Watts (except Seems Like Only Yesterday by Thaddeus Turner)


Strange World
Have you ever heard the calling from a distant place?
The familiar and the never known share a perfect space.
And the light between the branches seems to hesitate
From revealing little secrets in the quiet shade.

This world is getting very strange
It’s hard to know the difference
Between what is real and what is staged

Do you hear the way the little sounds reverberate,
As you move the many branches getting in your way,
On a path that seems to lead you to an open plane,
Where the calling gently steers you to a burning flame

Take the answer inside this fantasy and begin to trace
How the structures of this life begin to vacillate
Within the moments of our doubt beyond the picture frame
Lie the answers to the dream we all simulate

This world is getting very strange
It’s hard to know the difference
Between what is real and what is stage
This world is getting very strange

Did you ever think that we would live to see the day
When the limitations of our life would disintegrate
And the brilliance of our minds would be on full display
What a beautiful conclusion to anticipate

Oh, oh, oh – to anticipate
It’s getting very strange


Seems Like Only Yesterday

no lies, no truth
no gettin' on the one
no love, no hate
no diggin for the truth
no juice, no jazz
no fame, no pressure
no gift, no give
no reason on the edge

seems like only yesterday
i remember yesterday

no fan, no plan
so precious, no give
no dough
my sister and my brother
my young, my dear
my mother & my father
my friends, my love
I'm going undercover

seems like only yesterday
i remember yesterday
