Track Name: Heart of the Sea
Heart of the Sea
(from the EP "Love is Impossible")
music & lyrics: Waylon K. Smith
©2015

I was adrift,
The man that I was, was a ship
That was trying to drown
And the ship, that I was,
Was sinking without making a sound

Chorus:
And my heart was a sea of smashed pianos
And the sea was sharp, and the sea
And my love was a tattered sail that hung lifeless
Endlessly, endlessly, endlessly
Endlessly...

And all hands abandoned the deck
All that remained was the wreck
Of a ship that was gathering gloom
And the ship, that I was,
Was sinking by the light of the moon

Chorus:
Instrumental Bridge:

She appeared from the mist
Bade me to shake free my barnacles
It was time to fly
And the ship, that I was
Is still sailing through the stars tonight

Ch:
And my heart is a sea of constellations
And she is the heart of the sea
And my love is the force that's expanding the universe
Endlessly, endlessly, endlessly

And my heart is a sea of constellations
And she is the heart of the sea
And my love is the force that's expanding the universe
Endlessly, endlessly, endlessly
Endlessly...

Love is Impossible

Gravity works differently in the underworld
So I ascended from the center of the earth
Like Orpheus, I had to retrace my steps
And that is how we met

Chorus:
If love is impossible, so are we
If love is impossible, so are we
If love is impossible, so are we
If love is impossible, so are we

While we wept with wolves, we waited
For the gods to fall asleep
And ,as the dawn broke, they found we had absconded
By the skins of our teeth

Chorus:

Bridge:
As we sailed to the edge of the world
I said, “I can see the past from here”
You said, “What the hell”
And pinned a rose to my lapel
And we left the atmosphere

Chorus:
Track Name: The Beautiful Chaos of Time
The Beautiful Chaos of Time
(from the EP "Love is Impossible)
music & lyrics: Waylon K. Smith

Arcadia can be anything
The past is arithmetic
Paradise is merely a feeling
And the future is synthetic

So let me know your pain
In a rosary of stars
Let me know your love
From your patterns and your scars

Chorus:
We're just children floating in space
We're just children floating in space
We're just children floating in space
And we illuminate like beacons of fate

Life can be the chance to glimpse the divine
The beautiful chaos of time

So let me know your pain
In a tapestry of stars
Let me know your love
Let your prophecy break my heart

Cosmonauts
(from the EP "Love is Impossible")
music & lyrics: Waylon K. Smith

Darling, tell me how
We are floating
So high above the clouds
And, darling, tell me why
we are still alive

We’re not breathing, we’re just being
We’re not breathing, we’re just being

And we are not cosmonauts
We are light and thought, we are holy
And we are not cosmonauts
We are light and thought, we are holy

We’re not breathing, we’re just being
We’re not breathing, we’re just being

And we are not cosmonauts
We are light and thought, we are holy
And we are not cosmonauts
We are light and thought, we are holy
And we are not cosmonauts
We are light and thought, we are holy
We are holy
We are holy…

You said, “What the hell”
And pinned a rose to my lapel
And we left the atmosphere

And if love is impossible, so are we…
