Track Name: Swirl My Cup
If I have to be Samson, let me be Delilah too:
a head full of power and the scissors to undo.

If I'm going to be Hera, give me the changing body of Zeus
so I can rule from my mountain and have my choice of lovers too.

Listen.

Baby I know I made you up, but I need someone to listen and to swirl my cup a little while.

Maybe my baby made me up, but I know that I will listen and I will learn to discern. Swirl his cup if he likes.
Track Name: Belly of a Whale
If I had to be a barnacle, I'd like to be on the belly of a whale.
If I had to be that barnacle, me and my whale, we would see the world.
Oh my baby, there's nothing too small to be.

If I had to be a spider, I would be a daddy-long-legs.
So I wouldn't bite you when you were sleeping,
but I could tiptoe across your face.
I'm not creepy baby, I just love your skin.

If I had to be a natural disaster, I would be an earthquake
so I could prove my shake is unparalleled and I could change up this place.
Oh my baby, let me rumble on.

Well, if I had to be an explosion, I would be a star.
If I had to be that explosion, a hole in the sky I would carve.
Oh my baby, I could be the best kind of high. I could be the best high.

If I had to be a barnacle, I'd rather be a whale, I'd rather fly, but throw it my way and I will try. Just throw it my way, and I will try. I will be the best goddamn barnacle you've ever seen.
Track Name: Deer Song
Here's another year of waiting for the lilacs to return - they always do.
And here's another year of my hair not growing longer, but it's silvering I feel.
Here's another breeze and it's just loaded up with secrets; has it passed your way, or did you send it here?
Here is another...whatever you need, my dear.

I think I'd miss you if you were sitting in my kitchen
that's just the way you grow for me, my dear.

Here's another year where I'm not growing taller, but I'm not smaller yet, I mean that's pretty cool.
Here's a little wisdom I like to keep down in the ocean: most fish are faster without feet.
Most fish they are faster 'cause they don't
speak.

I think I'd miss you if you were sitting in my kitchen
That's just the way you grow for me, my dear.
I just might kiss you if you were right there in my kitchen,
lord I miss you, how I miss you, my dear.

Here's another thing that I would so much rather whisper,
but it's not that way this year.
So here is another...just take it from me, my dear.

I think I'd miss you if you were sitting in my kitchen
that's just the way you grow for me, my dear.
I'm sure I'd miss you if you were right there in my kitchen
I'd love to cook for you, my dear.
So here is another...oh look, there's a deer.
