Track Name: Grassy Meadow
hawks are prowling.
coyotes growling.
owls are scowling.
sky is frowning on me.

hide in grassy meadow,
tall grass keep head low.

night, moon light, quiet sight.
see no owl, end my fright.
moon light pours in. clouds roll in.
shadows dim.
escape is only sure then.

quiet moon, hide me in your light.

thoughts are wandering.
hearts are pounding.
minds are pondering.
sun will soon shine down on me.

hide in grassy meadow,
tall grass keep head low.

might I spite this enemy's bite. or understand forgive.
live and let live - then - escape is only sure then.
said this rabbit to a friend..

quiet moon, hide me in your light.
Track Name: Silent Hills of Indigo
silent hills of indigo.

on my back gazing at the sky.
thinking, pondering, wondering why.

silent hills of indigo.

cast a shadow in my eye.
silhouette of bird flown by.

silent hills of indigo.

is this what lay in store for me,
is this where I must go?

oh indigo.

deep purple watery blue
the sun is old, but this sunset new.

silent hills of indigo.

lives pass quickly but clouds pass slow, in these hills of indigo..
Track Name: Rainstorm Breeze
run..run..run so far away

rainstorm breeze.
trees throw away the leaves.
squinting eyes on this
stormy horizon.

soft grass hill.
dark gray cloudy sky.
bright yellow buttercups
and golden butterflies.

run..run..run so far away

rainstorm breeze.
rain wash away the tears.
my heart will mend and my eyes will soon be dry.

run..run..run to another day.
Track Name: Dusty Brown
wind..wind..wind..carry him home

dusty brown.
rabbit gray brown.
fuzzy ball of fur, blood and bone.

whiskers nose.
dirt between toes.
dig and thump at
hard cold stones.
Track Name: Misty Hare
lyrics by leslie ann rodgers

music by david markham

misty hare.
rabbit so fair.
soft fur and whiskers,
curious nose.

mist over grassy meadow.
dew fall at dawn.
misty hare peers out of her burrow
to see the new day.

misty hare.

gazing with wide eyes
at the sky up above.
hoping with full heart
for a glimpse of her love.

misty hare.
Track Name: Majestic Sky
to my majestic sky.
my future’s high,
higher than high.

so big and wide.
so full my eyes.
I can’t see your end.

to my majestic sky.
my future’s high,
higher than high.

where will I go?
what will I do?
who will show me the way?

to my majestic sky.
my future’s high,
higher than high.

oh will I die?
must I play shy?
or must I simply lie
to my majestic sky?
Track Name: Butterflies Wings
butterflies wings
they whisper, they flutter, they fly.
butterflies wings
they shimmer, they flitter, they glide
into the sky.

Oh butterfly come, land on my eye.
Please, please, butterflies come
land on my eyes.

Wind blow them near me.
Come close to my heart..today.
I want to know.....what’s on your mind.
Tell me... tell me now.

Come come land on my eye.
Come come butterfly in the sky.
Track Name: Ocean Eyes
why?

anyway, nevermore, evermind.

why won’t you come with me
( why won’t you stay with me )

over open prairie?
( hear right hear with me? )

our love will never end. ( no one knows. )
you’ll always be my friend.

the vast blue sky

holds so much for you and I.

oh can’t you have my ocean eyes?
Track Name: This Moon I Know
lost my best friend.
blew away with the wind.
wondering if he’ll ever return again?
wondering where I’ll go?

stars are dim.
night clouds hide them
underneath this moon I know.

lost my best friend.
blew away with the wind.
wondering if love will ever end?
wondering where I’ll go?

stars are dim.
night clouds hide them
underneath this moon I know.

the moon shines through
then disappears again.
turn my head to
look back now and then.
truly miss my best friend.

this moon I know.
Track Name: Sad Sad Smile
thinking aloud in the autumn's rain.
wondering on a cloud so I don't go insane.
tomorrow I must go away

I must wear a sad sad smile and think of something to say.
tomorrow I must go away.
ask the sun, the stars, my friend the wind, how long I must remain.

brush a tear from my eye
and wish good-bye again.

with an ocean eye and
a sad sad smile I must
think of something to say.
Track Name: Old Rabbit Hole
picture misty yellow green
of a place I've never been
long long ago. so long ago.
sun soft quiet mellow gleam.
frozen flowers melt into the scene so far away. too far away.

if heaven were an earthly place, here my life I would bring.

time stops and eyes glaze still.
heart belittled but remembers well,
I must move on. move further on.
squinting eyes on this horizon.
butterflies land on my eyes then are gone.
they touch and go. my soul is full. my soul is full.

if heaven were an earthly place, here my ears would ring.

sing tall grass waves with the wing.
over fog filled valley to mend before the snow.
the winter's snow.
walking into this dream on my name.
feel the sting and my head hold no shame.
I let it go,, down old rabbit hole, down rabbit hole.

if heaven were an earthly place there I wish to die old.

picture distant willow gray.
soothe my mind and brush away my belabored brow,
my forlorned frown.
grasshopper climb high on wet grass.
look to me with black eyes of the past.
they fade to blind. can't see to find a way.
find a way, find The Way.

if heaven were an earthly place..
Track Name: Grasshopper Rain
grass wet rain hopper fly
grass hopper fly wet rain

grasshopper showers.
climbing high on tall blades.
prairie grasses waving on by.

black eyes look at me.
tell me what is and
what isn't to be.
black eyes look at me.
tell me a grasshopper story.

drops of sun shining
shimmering down.
landing heavy on grass-
hopper's eye. soak wet bend blades
down, down, down, down.
hop, grasshopper, to fly.

clouds rolling in, blue gray rays.
rolling clouds in, gray blue rays...
Track Name: Twinkling
the moon has come and gone now.
but it’s left a few twinkling stars in the sky.
ohh it’s gonna be a sunny day.

the moon has just gone away
for a while.
and the lonely stars dim
in the sun rise.
and the stars twinkle in my eyes.
the blue sky is bright now

little field of flowers drinkin in the rays.
ohh it’s gonna stay a sunny day.
rain rain rain keep away
for a while.

a butterfly stopped to land on my eyes..
oh no, here comes that thunder cloud rollin in... oh well!
Track Name: Endless Seas Apart
winter wandering friend.
faded memory send
a cold grey stone to my heart.

endless seas apart.
endless seas apart.

oh..faces in the cloudy sky.
one with a tear
one with a lie.

winter wandering friend.
such a shame in the end.
if we’d only have known we were

endless seas apart.
endless seas apart.
Track Name: Wolves Are
oh the wolves are
calling in the night.

oh the wolves are
howling in the night.

oh the wolves are
searching for me.

oh the wolves are
growling in the night.

oh the wolves are

searching for me,
searching for me.
Track Name: The Mountain Song
the moon covered by clouds now.
the stars twinkling behind them in the sky.
it’s gonna be a foggy night.
rain falls on my eyes
and blurs my sight.

hey, ooh la la la. la la la. la la la, la.

endless seas waves are calling me.
ocean blue, heart so true, I love you.

ooh the wind is gone.
coyotes have turned to bigger dogs.
ooh the wind is gone.
where once was a hawk
an eagle is there
ooh the wind is gone.
pollywogs have turned to bigger frogs.
where once was an owl
a seagull is now there.

air is thinner,
green is greener,
colder is winter,
mean is meaner.

la la la la la la la

moon is brighter,
streams are sweeter,
sun is wider,
dreams are nearer.

rabbits are brighter,
wolves are keener,
winter is whiter,
mountain is steeper.

sea is closer,
clouds are farther,
sky is higher,
small memory of her.

bigger dogs.
wind is gone.
wind is gone.
Track Name: The Endless Sea
(endless sea, endlessly)

endless sea my destiny
endless sea my dream
splashing wet waves
crashing into craggy caves.
salty air.

coming wind to make the
leaves of the trees sing songs
to me of the years gone by.

standing on this cliff under the trees above the ocean pouring rain.
covering tears of sorrow, somehow wash away the pain.
wind carry these cold memories far from this endless shore.
blowing through my dusty brown hair
leave me silent remembering no more.
feels so free to look at the sea.

on the surface black, blue, gray.
on the horizon eye blinding rays.

who would have dreamed
what the wind could reveal
beyond butterfly pond in the rain.
butterfly pond in the rain
butterfly pond in the rain

in the rain

in the rain

endless seas

endless sea
