Looking Down 02:45
Verse: Leave your worries, leave your woes You won’t need them where were going to go We’re going to climb to the top of a Mountain Forget your money, forget your dues grab your car keys and your hiking shoes We’re going to climb to the top of a Mountain Chorus: Looking Down you can close your eyes under beautiful skies you can’t hide beneath these skies looking down from the mountain Verse: Theirs no hurry take your time feel the hush and honey you find there is a rhythm when you climb up the mountain Bring some water, bring some food its just going to be me and you Were going to climb to the top of the mountain Chorus: Looking down you can open your eyes under beautiful skies Their is nothing to hide beneath these skies looking down from the mountain

Verse: In the moonlight, starlight tangled up in midnight Rustle like a leaf on a tree Come along, get lost with me You were run down, pushed out, nothing you could talk about Chomping like a horse on a bit Chewing the smoke that rose from your cigarette Chorus: Come along, come along, come along get lost with me Without a voyage, without a mission, we’re going to listen to the crickets in the dark Verse: Through the rambles and the brambles of the blackberry vines growing the the heat of the dark Your going to lose your ambition for nothing less than living oh it feels so nice I will listen as you ramble by the rhythm of your step As you walk through the city by the glow As we watch humans live through these window Chorus: Come along, Come along, Come along get lost with me Without a voyage, without a mission, we’re going to listen to the crickets in the dark We are going to live by the rhythm of the crickets in the dark Bridge In deep down dark Can you hear them in the dark Without a voyage, without a mission, we’re going to listen to the crickets in the dark We are going to live by the rhythm of the crickets in the dark Barefoot, Cantaloupe, California wine Feel the mud just a sneaking through your toes As you lay in the grass and watch it grow Road maps, street signs, constellations of your life let go of the destination known Come along get lost with me Chorus: Come along, Come along, Come along get lost with me Without a voyage, without a mission, we’re going to listen to the crickets in the dark We are going to live by the rhythm of the crickets in the dark

It started when you were just a little child inside of you and it just grew Verse: Trembling like thunder, showering like rain A booming voice that you just can’t explain As you wonder, you discover you change You can’t ignore it, can’t let it go The more you learn the faster the waters grow flooded wonder Chorus: Stop do you hear that sound Its just your heart rumbling Stop do you hear that sound its just my mind flooding The waters are rising Verse: Where your going I’d never guess The waters swirl with trouble and promise Stay afloat or find a boat and you’ll be fine It’s your fate yeah you might as well Open the flood gates let your mind swell with flooded wonder Chorus: Stop do you hear that sound Its just your heart rumbling Stop do you hear that sound its just my mind flooding The waters are rising

I can smell it its sticking in the air I can feel it like a ghost thats standing their Holding your shoulder pulling you closer taking the man I used to love Till I can’t find the man I knew within you I can taste it It lingers on your tongue I can see it your wasted and I’m in love With the man I used to know beneath the stench of alcohol he's slipped away and is lost to me now Till I can’t find the man I knew within you Within you But I can hear it Its slurring between your lips Why try avoiding the situation we are in For I don’t want to \ And I won’t watch you fall into darkness again Till I can’t find the man I knew within you

Someday when I am older and this world it seems to vanish in the night Memories float across my mind and slowly come to life Like dust dancing in the light Someday when I am wiser I will smile upon the days I’m going through It never mattered what lay upon my skin or what shape my flesh was in Never changed the destiny that could have been So if this is how life goes Nothing stays the same and everyday I change I’ll flicker, flicker like a flame Someday when this moment is a faded photograph I’ll realize I spent my life with love all around For you are the faces on my life constellations of my sky you guided me though the night So if this is how life goes Nothing stays the same and everyday I change I’ll flicker, flicker like a flame

Never want to smile under pitched rice or Run down the aisle in a gown of white or Say I do to the rest of my life with you But the world walked out as you walked in and I’m a Twelve year old girl playing barbie again Just sticking on stilettos and slapping that makeup on When will love me through with me Be though with me Come on be though with me Look at me dancing around like this In a push up bra and red lipstick Craving the attention on the mention of T & A Never could picture our lives spun together Like a spider web out in the weather the Wind would blow but we’d never tether the storm When will love me through with me Be though with me Come on be though with me Well here we go again

Let it go dear Let it roll off of your tongue Like a storm it must come thundering Say it plain girl Don’t dress the fire up in lace For you will singe all the grace of the point you must make to walk away Let it die there by the lampshade drenched in smoke for you may laugh at his jokes But if you swallow this you’ll choke till you let it go Its okay Its alright let it fade with the night for you must the truth and say no to him and walk away There's no answer for the love he could not give so there's no use wondering if there was more you could give so let it fall dear, slip from your hands with a silent thud Let it stick in the mud, for some things stay stuck till you let them go Its okay Its alright let it fade with the night for you must the truth and say No to him and walk away and walk away Rise out the ashes all your forgotten passions open up your eyes and say goodbye

about

Tai Shan has just released her new CD Tiny Planet. The music is a sensitive, polished, collection of Tai Shan’s original songs woven with lush sounds of her rich soprano voice. Her lyrics combine with acoustic guitar, organ, cello, bass and drums to create her bolero, country, and jazz-infused tunes. The lyrical content of the songs range from evolution to
alcoholism, with wide sweeping melodies.

“Tiny Planet,” the title track of the CD, is a song about the sea and its interconnection with the evolution of mankind. Proceeds from the online sales of this song will be donated to Seattle’s People for Puget Sound, an environmental, non-profit group dedicated to the restoration of the Puget.
