Track Name: Me Jane - Big, Big Bed
I need a big, big bed
To save the dreams that I've dreamt
Catch them in this linen net
and keep them so I don't forget.

I've seen my auntie's bed, she lives in Amarillo,
There's room to lie down, but there ain't no room to spare
So Auntie's dreams rolled to the floor and got lost in the night.
I don't believe her when she says she don't mind.

Better make my ceilings high
And keep the windows open deep into the night
Because I'll float up and cast off the sheets
And drift into the midnight trees.

When he's here, my bed's going to have to be bigger.
'Cause my love runs wide, my love runs wider than a Texas river.

I want the whole cake
I won't settle for the crumbs
Give me room to the side
and room up above because
I'm in such a big, big love
It's just too big to fall out of!

When he's here, my bed's going to have to be bigger.
'Cause my love runs wide, my love runs wider than a Texas river.
Track Name: On the Moon
There's no wind a-blowing on the moon
There's no garden growing on the moon
You won't hear what I say from so far away
What a distance there can be between two rooms.

I know you keep your heart safe and out of sight
But aren't you lonely way out on that satellite?
My instruments of war, they're too heavy anymore.
My heart would break with the weight of one more fight.

So I'm out on the moon
Feels like I'm on the moon.
Might as well be on the moon.

They say the moon was torn from the earth
Long time before we came.
The hole it left became a deep, blue sea.
Now the moon's dry as a bone
White and hard as stone.
Even with you next to me, I feel all alone.
Track Name: Paper, Scissors
The sound of his voice
Could make a fire in my head
Now the wind blows cold
Through a hole in my chest.

No good can come
of a rootbound love
But look at me now
I'm all undone.

I was bound to him by strings of love
And I found myself tangled up.

Paper, scissors, string and stone
Thought I knew how this love would go
Paper, scissors, stone and string
Love don't come on a guarantee.

The sun comes up
I cover my head
Now tell me why
I ought to get out of bed

Five days out of seven
I've got somewhere to be
But Saturday and Sunday
I drift way out to sea
Track Name: Speak My Language
I can read and I can spell
Learned it between schoolyard bells
Teacher did and Teacher said
and put the language in my head.

Spanish, French, Vietnamese
German, Dutch and Cherokee
If I had learned to speak all these
Still there'd be this missing piece.

But you must never wonder why
I so like to be by your side
My heart says a thing and you understand
You cross the bridge, you speak my language.

I may speak with eloquence
But the listener just seems rendered deaf
Looks at me as if I'm dumb
Despite the common idiom

But you must never wonder why
I so like to be by your side
My heart says a thing and you understand
You cross the bridge, you speak my language.
