Track Name: A Secret Spell
It's an incantation
A secret spell
A spirit conjured up in song
The words in combination
From the bottomless well
A stubborn line drawn between right and wrong

Well come as you are
As you wanted to be
All are welcome in song
If you’ve been traveling alone
Then you’re traveling with me
And that road can be so lonely and so long

It’s a song with no beginning
It’s a song with no end
It’s a song that just goes on (and on and on and on)

Sing one for Nina
Sing one for Tom
Sing one for Neil
And one for John
One for my darling Nicki
My dog Leonard too
By my side after everyone has gone

It’s a song with no beginning
It’s a song with no end
It’s a song that just goes on (and on and on and on)

In congregation
Voices as one
All are welcome in song
Track Name: You Can Lie To Me
You can lie to me
But be true
If the lie is the truth
That’ll do

I will follow you
But if the lie is false
Then we’re through

One for the money
Two for the show
Triple it triple it triple it
Three to never let go
