Stereo 04:42
Stereo by Ezra Vancil I Saw Your life rewind in Stereo I saw the night conquer a friend and if I had a song that I could play tonight I would dance with you again and all our time out on the killing fields where glory fell all about a rain and if I had a song that I could play tonight i would ask you just for the right If I had a song that would reel you in If I had a tune that would wash your skin as thick as granet as thick as blood that soon ran thin I saw the red moon fall in mexico when we did our time up on the fence and if I had a tune that I could play just right I would ask you back again cause all your life was just a lovers dream fading out like summer steam and If I had a tune that I could play tonight I would ask you just for the right If I had a song that would reel you in If I had a tune that would wash your skin as thick as granet as thick as blood that soon ran thin I can’t let you in no evidence of you friend I saw the red moon fall from mexico I saw your life rewind in stereo if I had a song that I could play tonight If I had a song that would reel you in If I had a tune that would wash your skin If I had a word that would wash your skin as thick as granet as thick as blood that soon ran thin

DECEMBER by Ezra Vancil Take a picture baby take another look write it in your boo send me a postcard, send me a letter tell me your feeling better who better than me, thats not so hard to believe Forget about the winter and the plans that we made in the hot summer shade cause I’ll be a memory when you waken from your sleep Cause I’ll be on some train suck’n up my pain cause I don’t want to see you leave call me mr. free the truth won’t catch me if I don’t see you leave Forget about the flowers but send me back the song and the poetry I wrote never mind the time it took Cause some day in the shadows maybe you'll see my face and you can tell your friends, hey it wasn’t me, he was just some old insecurity I’ll be on some bus... it’s better me than us cause i don’t want to see you leave call me mr. free the truth won’t catch me if I don’t see you leave So much the dreams of the winter so much the dreams of december we’ll i don’t want to see you leave

Break this heart by Ezra Vancil Woke up tied in a bed of lies told myself I didn’t have to try in this foolish game of sorrows took a walk in the shallow skin told myself i didn’t need no friends all the love i need i can borrow Cause aint nobody gonna break this heart Ain’t nobody gonna break this heart nobody gonna touch the shame aint nobody gonna feel my pain nobody gonna break this heart Ain’t nobody gonna break this heart but you I am a rock like the song did say an island to myself each day but I don’t need no poetry to protect me lovers in the park walk two by two but I don’t want none of that hippy voodu no, nobody changes Cause aint nobody gonna break this heart Ain’t nobody gonna break this heart nobody gonna touch the shame aint nobody gonna feel my pain nobody gonna break this heart Ain’t nobody gonna break this heart but you Summer time sweet the wine taste so bitter but you know it’s so bitter sweet winter fall summer spring your sweet love gonna make me suffer so let it be Cause aint nobody gonna break this heart Ain’t nobody gonna break this heart nobody gonna break this heart Ain’t nobody gonna break this heart nobody gonna touch the shame aint nobody gonna feel my pain nobody gonna break this heart Ain’t nobody gonna break this heart but you

Kinsman Redeemer by Ezra Vancil In the days of the common when the lions did sleep i went out walking seeking my sanity and the sun in the heavens rose raspberry red wrestling with decisions anguish unsaid like the son of David always asking what more when vanities of vanities is all he had in store or the Jacob and Esau bidding who would be first at the breast of their mother an unquenchable thirst oh kinsman redeemer where do we sleep when you win with the barely i will undress your feet and there will i lay down the night shall i stay at the foot of your mercy in the hands of your grace for the bread i have thrown down and the wine i have cursed for I am but an appetite an unquenchable thirst

Kingdom Come 03:35
Kingdom Come by Ezra Vancil I get so tired I get so lost along the way like a fuel in the sun how quick our glory fades away but thy kingdom come sometimes I want it heavens doors are open wide sometimes I cant wait sometimes i want to run and hide from all my fear all my fear Someday we’ll find that everything will fall into a new way around the sun and space and time will burn up in the brightness of a new day thy kingdom come don't make it real don’t make it you realize all the time we kill in these bodies born to die dust to dust kings and castles turn to rust but thy kingdom come Someday we’ll find that everything will fall into a new way around the sun and space and time will burn up in the brightness of a new day thy kingdom come and when i feel that i can’t take this any more I think about the grace that goes before and when i see the truth of all that i have done oh lord come Someday we’ll find that everything will fall into a new way around the sun and space and time will burn up in the brightness of a new day thy kingdom come

Paradise 04:41
Paradise by Ezra Vancil It’s another day in paradise it’s another day to shine but I don’t feel so nice and I don’t feel so kind but you know me, can you help me understand it’s another day to shoot the breeze with some of my old friends but all those memories I don’t wanna bring ‘em up again it gets me thinking of a better time But I’ll keep on running till I’m through when the sun is burning and I’m feeling blue I’ll keep on running running till I’m caught up with you Someone needs to turn me over and get me out of bed cause I could sleep a thousand years and you might think I’m dead but I’m dreamin it’s just a nice place to be Sometimes I wonder why I get up my friend for something else to come along and knock me down again but it figures, cause it’s a rotating world But I’ll keep on running till I’m through when the earth is turning and I’m longing for you I’ll keep on running running, till I’m caught up with you And if nothing comes about in twenty years I’m all worn out how can I give up on the truth I’ll keep on running running till I’m through My responsibilities grow heavier each day and all these thoughts and dreams keep getting in the way but I’m dreaming, I’m still dreaming of your face. I’ll keep on running. till I’m caught up with you

Winter Girls 05:13
Winter Girls by Ezra Vancil All those winter girls with fresh made hair walking around with their movie stars they could never be what I have found deep in your arms as you lay me down And all those summer boys they talk so well with shiny new cars and ships to sail they could never be what you have found deep in my arms as I lay you down And you’ll be my lazy summer lullaby and i’ll walk against the wind just for your eyes we’ll harvest memories in season time and i’ll be your shadow and you’ll be mine Oh the grass is green right where I am wrapped in your perfumed golden skin and your silhouette is all I see deep in your arms, will I always be? And you’ll be my lazy summer lullaby and i’ll walk against the wind just for your eyes we’ll harvest memories in season time and i’ll be your shadow and you’ll be mine Oh those winter days are soon to pass and you know summer never last but there will always be what we have found deep in these arms, as we lay down you’ll be my lazy summer lullaby and i’ll walk against the wind just for your eyes we’ll harvest memories in season time and i’ll be your shadow and you’ll be mine

When were down by Ezra Vancil We used to watch the sun going down Over the cedar trees You used to watch the world going round over me I used to call you up sometimes when no one seemed to care You came around with those angel eyes and the flowers in your hair And when I felt you breaking well you know I was right there by your side And when you felt me fading You just looked me in the eye and you pulled my lonely feet back to the ground But when we're down Who will turn this love around Oh when we're down We're not the ones to run and hide from We're not the enemy We're just two parts in the same great mystery Come maybe we will answer the sound wrestling in our brains Someday baby we will dance to the rhythm of the pain And when you feel you're sinking You can stand up on my shoulders high And when you feel me fading you just look me in the eye And you pull my lonely feet back to the ground But when we're down who will turn this love around Oh when we're down I want to fly I want to sing of your sweet generosity I want to climb I want to be here to see your sweet love come over me Come over me and you But when we're down who will turn this love around Oh when we're down

Mortal Days 04:10
Mortal Days by Ezra Vancil It’s a traffic jam 8 a.m and i’m singing every song I ever heard and up in the distance I see a river flowing and something in me stirs and whoever said nine to five that’s like seventy percent of my waking life in the hands of another man’s plans beneath fluorescent lights If I could break away from these mortal days If I could find a place where time would wait for me time wait for me Well it looks like it’s gonna be another one of those nights working late under fluorescent lights and I’d much rather be in bed… with my lover resting my head telling stories till the morning light and we wonder why our father’s don’t know their sons and we wonder why our children play with guns and we wonder all these things in front of our TV’s then we wonder when the next show is coming on If I could break away from these mortal days If I could find a place where time would wait for me Someday we’re going to see blue skies waiting, above the lights Someday we’re going to see blue skies waiting, above the lights someday we’re gonna see blue sky If I could break away from these mortal days If I could find a place where time would wait for me

Two Hands 05:30
Two Hands by Ezra Vancil Most of the time I’m like a child waiting to run waiting to fall on you but we draw these lines and we follow through two hands in the dark can not hold you the things that I will I do not do but the things that I wish not how do they come so true and love may remain when passion is through but two hands in the dark are not enough to hold you, when our dreams are through Is it me is it you is it something that we can’t go on without it like a weed growing through choking the seed Silent we strain to numb the pain but something so dark something so dull remains and if i had a hope to give to you We'll I’d wrap it in dreams throw it into your river God be with her Is it me is it you is it something that we can’t go on without it like a weed growing through choking the seed and what can I do, to make us stronger than today what can I say to hear for all this time a way what can i do to reach you Is it me is it you is it something that we can’t go on without it like a weed growing through choking the seed to make us stronger than today what can I say to hear for all this time a way what can i do to reach you

Mercy 04:15
Mercy by Ezra Vancil All alone I think I’ll unplug the telephone and sit here waiting on the shelf another day has passed me by in another way that’s okay because I’m too tired to complain Had a dream I heard you say that you never cared for me at all my heart, did I fall oh mercy say it wasn't true mercy say it wasn't you and all the love you always gave me when i has disappeared into that shadow of my brain and all the times you were there for me in my heart I feel the loneliness began Had a dream I heard you say that you never cared for me at all my heart, did I fall oh mercy say it wasn't true mercy say it wasn't you I’m not pretty, I’m not smart I found my self with an aching heart now on the ground, on the spot I found my self with an aching heart now I’m not pretty, I’m not smart I found my self with an aching heart now on the ground, on the spot I found my self with an aching heart can’t you hear me calling? oh mercy stay with me tonight mercy stay with me tonight
