1. What a fellowship, what a joy divine, leaning on the everlasting arms; what a blessedness, what a peace is mine, leaning on the everlasting arms. Refrain: Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms; leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms. 2. O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, leaning on the everlasting arms; O how bright the path grows from day to day, leaning on the everlasting arms. (Refrain) 3. What have I to dread, what have I to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms? I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, leaning on the everlasting arms. (Refrain)
Friday I picked you up from the light rail and i've learned how to greet you again aint no more freezin' up like the brakes on that train our tongues are tied more ways than one the treehouse is ours again the green key will let you in and Monday is so far away no time to count the hours let's have another round of everything you came here for and I know how to be the guy that starts the van and doesnt cry I've folded and buried my steam hard to watch you walk away pretend its not goodbye I'll kiss you all night in my dreams
hadnt a clue how you fell for me both inside our own sphere we shared our thoughts so tacitly cant see your breath on the mirror i had certain tricks up my sleeve they worked unexpectedly saturday stranded me empty handed my intuitions came true didnt expect to affect you this way thought we were rubber and glue the sun doesnt shine on me very friendly it hasnt done so in days dont know what i'd do without your company if that all got erased
your better angels are keeping you from having any fun you cant play the angles your focus groups and agents fool no one a bell fades a colder wind of distant use and lost reward you've been wired into this desire you can no longer afford when are you gonna gain access? when are you gonna come clean? when does the opportunity door fly open? that old man may need you the facts have moved to 34th and Spring a covert operation at his age might be just the bell to ring


Recordings done with the immediacy and charm of a photo booth; simple, imperfect, and fast. Engineered by Scott Sutherland in the basement of the big yellow Wallingford house where Heather and Nick once housemated.
