Bright Sides 03:04
Just give me a smile And I'll cherish it dearly I'll save it in memory for a rainy day Just give me some laughter There's nothing quite like it Pain, grief, and sadness will all melt away If you happen to know The Hundred Acre Wood Or the way to Toad Hall Then please fill me in Because tea is at twelve And there's a chair by the fire If the conversation's good I'll be staying awhile Today's the perfect day for the bright sides of life They'll pick you up and tune you in And make you feel alright It's like waltzing in Vienna or flying in a dream A string ensemble breathing The rolling tide of spring If you find yourself aching For a cold cup of Entwash A walk in the moonlight or some Longbottom Leaf May the leeward side find you The sun never blind you The good book remind you Of the love that we share

She moves with easy grace She moves in silent circles Breathe in the air that stirs, she walks by……..draw in She’s become a part of me By accident I’ve fallen It's not her fault…….It’s me She, to be a queen To put a name to her face Would mean the world Breathe in, hold it long Until there’s nothing to exhale She is never out of sight Just far enough so she won’t feel my eyes What sin to waste what could have been

I put on my morning harmony It always feels so good in a major key The sun was singing a steamy moonlight serenade While the moon was creeping off Looking for a little shade The tea was begging to be steeped And the shower was hissing for some attention But the only thing that was on my mind Was lunch in the sun I stepped outside to saddle up Ben He was three and a half and stood sixteen hands We made our way to a warren I knew Where old Fiver told stories in the early afternoon The primroses had all begun to bloom And the sweet scent of clover was in the air For El-ahrairah this was a perfect day For lunch in the sun Oh, I daydreamed away Glenn Miller flew right above me Conducting the clouds to some long lost tune From Heaven the horns washed through me And then I knew it was time to go But I said to myself as I trotted on home It couldn't have been a better day For lunch in the sun

Sunrise orange fills the sky We wake to reach to push the ground aside Healing sun came early The March winds kept their promises of spring Rejoice the birth of seasons Miracle to bloom A tapestry to blanket Mother Open up and welcome Drench us in light, bathed in morning dew Child's footsteps closer Nose gently pressed to sample summer's yield Rejoice the gift of sharing Colors with the world A visually fragrant painted landscape Anxious bee come rest on me Easy breeze will take you home again Fill the air with a pungent nectar Sweet to breathe like a drug for your senses Mother feed us rain cloud And chase your gray to blue Filtered light come dancing And we begin to sing Allow us time to grow Mature and give our beauty To sculpt the Earth in shades of natural tone Time for life Sandman fills our heads with song of cricket Then leave us to dream in our quiet night The romantic lure of Mother's perfect stage No painter's brush could match her genius Sleep to dream, dream to reach To grow as high as elephant's eye

…and Every Blossom
Released June 18th 1993

This third collection of songs consisted of a four-song, 16-minute acoustic outpouring in the spring of 1993. The original pressing has long since been extinct, but in the early 2000s we were able to properly remix and master this little quartet of ideas for a box set culling hard-to-get songs and bonus tracks from our early catalogue. They have resided exclusively on said box set for the past sixteen years. We think it’s time to let the four songs live a life of their own again as a stand-alone endeavor - 25 years to the day.
