Track Name: Come and Kiss Me
Come and Kiss Me

For the last time the old man laces his shoes
Climbs the mountain and
Takes in the views
Lays down his burden
The day is done
His work is finished
Now it will go on.

Mouth wide open
In wonder at the sea,
The stretch of green valleys and tall Cypress trees
When the wind blows strong
He leans on his staff
And lets out a cry
That’s also a laugh.

Come and kiss me
Kiss me now
Come as close as the air allows.
Come and kiss me
I’m ready to go
I’ve made it to the top of the mountain.

She wanted to stay for a few years more
With her ice cream machine
In a house by the shore.
She’d climbed those mountains
But wanted to stay
With the sun on her neck
And watch her boys play.

But you don’t get to choose
And it ain’t win or lose
And when the mountain calls
You put on your shoes.
And with love on your lips
You share out the light
With the ones you love
At your bedside.

Come and kiss me
Kiss me now
Come as close as the air allows
Come and kiss me
I’m ready to go
I’ve made it to the top of the mountain.

Oh ohh…they go up the mountain
Oh ohh…they don’t come down
Oh ohh…it is something else
It’s something else,
We place in the ground.

Come and kiss me
Kiss me now
Come as close as the air allows
Come and kiss me
We are still here
Kiss me oh kiss me, my dear

Come now kiss me
Kiss me now
Come as close as the air allows
Come and kiss me
I am still here
Kiss me
til I make it
to the top of the mountain.
Track Name: Something of Mine
Something of Mine


Take- any part of me that’s left
Any piece you can find
In the corners
of the places
We were.

Use- all of what you need
I gave and still I know
all the things
that I really wanted to show you
I left them all behind.

Ooh- oh We all move on down the road.
Ooh- oh We all pass on down the line.
Ooh- oh I take your green eyes with me where I go.
Ooh- oh Maybe you got something of mine?

Fly- to faraway calls
Heed the voices that will lead
to the edges
of the mountains
you’ll rise and climb.

Go- leave and find your own way
to the canyons and the creeks.
All the things
that I really wanted to show you
I left them behind.

Ooh- oh We all move on down the road.
Ooh- oh We all pass on down the line.
Ooh- oh I take your green eyes with me where I go.
Ooh- oh Maybe you got something of mine?

What are you gonna take now?
What are you gonna take with you when you go?
What are you gonna take now?
Take now? Take now?
I have got lots to offer
I have got lots to give
but I can’t tell you what you are gonna need to live.

What’s going to help?
What’s going to heal?
What’s going to help you open up
and feel?

Think about it now.

Take anything.
Take anything you need.
Track Name: In that Eternity of His
In that Eternity of His

In that eternity of his
We all may gather
The lost and the lonely
Cause he couldn't bear to be without her.

In that eternity of his
Goodness at the center
Want and need a memory
Grasping fingers surrender.

Can you only imagine 
more of every kind of room?
Can you only imagine
Space for everyone you knew?

In that eternity of his
Wildness of the berries
The bird and the wanderer
The baby she carries.

In that eternity of his
We all may gather
The lost and the lonely
Cause he couldn't bear to be without her.

Can you only imagine 
more of every kind of room?
Can you only imagine
Space for everyone you knew?

May it come soon.
Track Name: How Long
How long…will You ignore me forever?
How long…will You hide Your face from me?
How long…will I have cares on my mind?
Grief in my heart? All day….

How long? How long? How long?
How long? How long?
How long will my enemy reign over me?

?עַד-אָנָה- יְהוָה תִּשְׁכָּחֵנִי נֶצַח?
? עַד-אָנָה, תַּסְתִּיר אֶת-פָּנֶיךָ מִמֶּנִּי
. עַד-אָנָה אָשִׁית עֵצוֹת, בְּנַפְשִׁי-- יָגוֹן בִּלְבָבִי— יוֹמָם
?עַד-אָנָה יָרוּם אֹיְבִי עָלָי.

(Ad anah Hashem Tishkaheni netzakh?
Ad anah Tastir et Paneckha mimmeni.
Ad anah ashit etzot b’nafshi?
Yagon bilvavi yomam….
Ad anah?Ad anah?Ad anah
Ad anah?Ad anah?
Ad anah yarum oyvi alay?)

וַאֲנִי, בְּחַסְדְּךָ בָטַחְתִּי-- יָגֵל לִבִּי, בִּישׁוּעָתֶךָ
אָשִׁירָה לַיהוָה כִּי גָמַל עָלָי.

(Va’ani b’Hasdecha vatachti
Yagel libi biYeshuatecha
Ashira l’Adonai- ki gamal alai.
Ashira l’Adonai- ki gamal alai.)

How long? How long? How long?
How long? How long? How long?
Track Name: Come on Lover
Come On Lover

You called to me
from your bedroom window
I looked up
and I never looked back.

Come on lover
Won’t you follow me over
Come on lover
I went
and I
am going.

You took me through fields
where the straw grows high
We lay on our backs
Eyes to the sky

Come on lover
Won’t you follow me over
Come on lover
I went
and I
am going.

Sometimes I wonder
Where I am
Is following you
My only plan?
Should I try
to find my own way
Could I say no
When you call me to play? Hey! Play? Yeah!!!!!

You called to me
from your bedroom window
I looked up
I never looked back.

Come on lover
Won’t you follow me over?
Come on lover
Won’t you follow me.
Come on lover
Won’t you follow me over?
Come on lover

I went
I went
I went
And I am going

Singing Shalalalalalalalala…
I went I went I went
and I am going.

You called to me
from your bedroom window
I looked up
and I never looked back.

Track Name: The Only One
The Only One

Akiva walked into the vineyard
Three friends at his side.
To the well-watered vineyard
With garnet fruit and slack green vines.
They all walked in together, and they looked all about.
But Akiva’d be the only one, the only one, the only one,
Akiva’d be the only one who’d walk out.

Ben Azzai climbed too high
Mind snagged on the cut of a cloud.
Now his body hung broken from a branch
Eyes wide like the volume got turned too loud.
He’d walked in with a lively step, and he’d looked all about.
But Akiva’d be the only one, the only one, the only one,
Akiva’d be the only one who’d walk out.

Everyone has a dream
To get to the other side.
To think there’s not a price to pay
To take that chariot ride.
Everyone wants to be
The one who can see.
But the sad truth is there are precious few
Who enter and leave in peace.

Ben Zoma drew waves with a stick
Wet lines in the dirt.
His words melted into mumbling dust
Mud caked on his torn t-shirt.
He’d walked in with a sharp mind, and he’d looked all about.
But Akiva’d be the only one, the only one, the only one,
Akiva’d be the only one who’d walk out.

Elisha swung from the slippery vines
Tanned arms out tree to tree
Tarzaned in a ripped loin cloth
But he never made it to free.
He’d walked in with faith, and he looked about.
But Akiva’d be the only one, the only one, the only one,
Akiva’d be the only one who’d walk out.

Akiva came into the vineyard.
Akiva walked out.
No cries for water water
Feet forward on the marble route.
He’d walked in with his three friends, and he’d looked all about.
But Akiva’d be the only one, the only one, the only one,
But the sad truth is
There are precious few who
enter and leave in peace.
Track Name: Enough Room
There’s enough room
There’s enough room
There’s enough room
For all of us here.


There’s enough room
There’s enough room
There’s enough room
For all of us here.

There's enough...joy...time...space...blessing...room.
Track Name: Psalm 27a
לְדָוִ֨ד ׀ יְהוָ֤ה ׀ אוֹרִ֣י וְ֭יִשְׁעִי מִמִּ֣י אִירָ֑א יְהוָ֥ה מָֽעוֹז־חַ֝יַּ֗י מִמִּ֥י אֶפְחָֽד׃
A Psalm of David. God is my light and my help; whom should I fear? God is the stronghold of my life, whom should I dread?

בִּקְרֹ֤ב עָלַ֨י ׀ מְרֵעִים֮ לֶאֱכֹ֪ל אֶת־בְּשָׂ֫רִ֥י צָרַ֣י וְאֹיְבַ֣י לִ֑י הֵ֖מָּה כָשְׁל֣וּ וְנָפָֽלוּ׃
When evil assails me to devour my flesh— it is they, my foes and my enemies, who stumble and fall.

אִם־תַּחֲנֶ֬ה עָלַ֨י ׀ מַחֲנֶה֮ לֹֽא־יִירָ֪א לִ֫בִּ֥י אִם־תָּק֣וּם עָ֭לַי מִלְחָמָ֑ה בְּ֝זֹ֗את אֲנִ֣י בוֹטֵֽחַ׃
Should an army besiege me, my heart would have no fear; should war beset me, still would I be confident.

אַחַ֤ת ׀ שָׁאַ֣לְתִּי מֵֽאֵת־יְהוָה֮ אוֹתָ֪הּ אֲבַ֫קֵּ֥שׁ שִׁבְתִּ֣י בְּבֵית־יְ֭הוָה כָּל־יְמֵ֣י חַיַּ֑י לַחֲז֥וֹת בְּנֹֽעַם־יְ֝הוָ֗ה וּלְבַקֵּ֥ר בְּהֵיכָלֽוֹ׃
One thing I ask of God, only that do I seek: to live in the house of the God all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Creator, to visit the Holy temple.
Track Name: Psalm 27b
כִּ֤י יִצְפְּנֵ֨נִי ׀ בְּסֻכֹּה֮ בְּי֪וֹם רָ֫עָ֥ה יַ֭סְתִּרֵנִי בְּסֵ֣תֶר אָהֳל֑וֹ בְּ֝צ֗וּר יְרוֹמְמֵֽנִי׃
God will shelter me in God's pavilion on an evil day, grant me the protection of God's tent, raise me high upon a rock.

וְעַתָּ֨ה יָר֪וּם רֹאשִׁ֡י עַ֤ל אֹֽיְבַ֬י סְֽבִיבוֹתַ֗י וְאֶזְבְּחָ֣ה בְ֭אָהֳלוֹ זִבְחֵ֣י תְרוּעָ֑ה אָשִׁ֥ירָה וַ֝אֲזַמְּרָ֗ה לַיהוָֽה׃
Now is my head high over my enemies roundabout; I sacrifice in God's tent with shouts of joy, singing and chanting a hymn to the One.

שְׁמַע־יְהוָ֖ה קוֹלִ֥י אֶקְרָ֗א וְחָנֵּ֥נִי וַעֲנֵֽנִי׃
Hear, Oh God, when I cry aloud; have mercy on me, answer me.

לְךָ֤ ׀ אָמַ֣ר לִ֭בִּי בַּקְּשׁ֣וּ פָנָ֑י אֶת־פָּנֶ֖יךָ יְהוָ֣ה אֲבַקֵּֽשׁ׃
To You, my heart says: “Seek My face!” Oh God, I seek Your face.

אַל־תַּסְתֵּ֬ר פָּנֶ֨יךָ ׀ מִמֶּנִּי֮ אַֽל־תַּט־בְּאַ֗ף עַ֫בְדֶּ֥ךָ עֶזְרָתִ֥י הָיִ֑יתָ אַֽל־תִּטְּשֵׁ֥נִי וְאַל־תַּֽ֝עַזְבֵ֗נִי אֱלֹהֵ֥י יִשְׁעִֽי׃
Do not hide Your face from me; do not thrust aside Your servant in anger; You have ever been my help. Do not forsake me, do not abandon me, O God, my deliverer.

כִּי־אָבִ֣י וְאִמִּ֣י עֲזָב֑וּנִי וַֽיהוָ֣ה יַֽאַסְפֵֽנִי׃
Though my father and mother abandon me, God will take me in.

ה֤וֹרֵ֥נִי יְהוָ֗ה דַּ֫רְכֶּ֥ךָ וּ֭נְחֵנִי בְּאֹ֣רַח מִישׁ֑וֹר לְ֝מַ֗עַן שׁוֹרְרָֽי׃
Show me Your way, Oh, God, and lead me on a level path because of my watchful foes.

אַֽל־תִּ֭תְּנֵנִי בְּנֶ֣פֶשׁ צָרָ֑י כִּ֥י קָֽמוּ־בִ֥י עֵֽדֵי־שֶׁ֝֗קֶר וִיפֵ֥חַ חָמָֽס׃
Do not subject me to the will of my foes, for false witnesses and unjust accusers have appeared against me.

לׅׄוּלֵׅׄ֗אׅׄ הֶ֭אֱמַנְתִּי לִרְא֥וֹת בְּֽטוּב־יְהוָ֗ה בְּאֶ֣רֶץ חַיִּֽים׃
Had I not the assurance that I would enjoy the goodness of God in the land of the living…

קַוֵּ֗ה אֶל־יְה֫וָ֥ה חֲ֭זַק וְיַאֲמֵ֣ץ לִבֶּ֑ךָ וְ֝קַוֵּ֗ה אֶל־יְהוָֽה׃
Look to God; be strong and of good courage! Oh, look to God!
