Words and Music by Dan Sonenberg


Friend and Lover
Name unspoken
That path is broken
We ride our tractors
And till the fields
We accept the yields

Sometimes the plan's gonna bring you down
Sometimes she won't be coming round
Sometimes the clouds overhang from above
Some days the rain mucks up the ground
Sometimes a light comes from the town
Sometimes your sky's just filled with sound, and with love

Funny money
Plain unspoken
Those men are broken
We ride our passions
And play our games
We conceal the names

Some day, she'll stop coming 'round
Lay tracks and head for higher ground
Some day you hoped you'd set her free anyway
Those eyes are gone won't be the same
Those dreams gonna spin you like a game
Those crazy tantric memories held at bay
