Black Stone 04:42
Black Stone (words and music by Noëlle Hampton) I was born a December child Soft and wild, soft and wild I was born on a snowy night With a light in my eye, a light in my eye Dirty hands and dirty knees A tomboy in the redwood trees I was born a nature’s child Soft and wild, soft and wild Ooh ooh… Paint my face with red dirt clay Watch it dry and turn to gray Hills of golden grasses sway The rapture of a summer’s day I was born in a sacred place Where all those sacred lay in grace I was born on a mountainside Soft and wild, soft and wild Sleeping lady majesty I think of you, do you think of me? A red tailed hawk on your highest peak I dream of you, do you dream of me? Ooh ooh… Hold the broken bird in hand Sugar water, help it stand As it flies away again Part of you will never mend Black stone, Black stone, Black stone, like a mirror Black Elk, Black Elk, Black Elk coming nearer Black stone, Black stone, Black stone, I can see her Black Elk, Black Elk, Black Elk across the river

The Siren 03:03
The Siren (words and music by Noëlle Hampton, Emily Shirley, André Moran and Kris Nelson) The radio is screaming noise It’s like a bullet in my head sometimes I try to breathe, Can no one see We stand in blindness to our own decline? I had a dream, I dreamt of silence I know a place where the light still finds us Aahhh, I’m running to the river I’m swimming through the water Gonna’ lose all my clothes Aahhh, the woods are my asylum The hawk will call the siren Of the way that it was I don’t remember the smell of summer The ice of winter on my frozen face The war is coming We should be running Out to the edge where the light still waits I try to think, I can’t recall What it was like through the eyes of love Aahhh, I’m running to the river I’m swimming through the water Gonna’ lose all my clothes Aahhh, the woods are my asylum The hawk will call the siren Of the way that it was Run, Run, Run Aaaah, there’s darkness all behind us The stars have come to find us and go leading us on Aahhh, I’m running to the river I’m swimming through the water Gonna’ lose all my clothes Aahhh, the woods are my asylum The hawk will call the siren Of the way that it was

Ghost of Mykonos (Words and music by Noëlle Hampton) Honeymoon out on the Brilliance of The Seas French Riviera down to southern Italy Eastward bound to the Grecian Coast They bring you champagne for the toast Like a shadow on the wall I was to you Fascinated by the story of the two Have you seen so much joy? I have seen so much joy Oh, I won’t tell them anything Oh, I won’t tell them anything Even though the truth will set you free Now you’re just the ghost of Mykonos Drowning in a cobalt sea You bragged of diamonds and of dowry that abound Befriending strangers and you buy another round Oh and how the absinthe flowed That makes a mad man, don’t you know? Oh, I won’t tell them anything Oh, I won’t tell them anything Even though the truth will set you free Now you’re just the ghost of Mykonos Drowning in a cobalt sea And every night you’re in my dreams The wind and stars hear your pleas Next day the bride wakes down the hallway on the floor No recollection of events the night before I heard it all through the walls of my room Now she is the wife of the missing groom Oooh Oooh Ohh Ooooohhh Oh, I won’t tell them anything Oh, I won’t tell them anything Even though the truth will set you free Now you’re just the ghost of Mykonos Drowning in a cobalt sea

Golden Boy 04:31
Golden Boy (Words and music by Noëlle Hampton) In the morning light all those little things you did They’re coming into focus, coming into focus in your head And the sun across your face makes you look like a golden boy But I didn’t see it coming, didn’t see it coming again Lion heart, and the raging sea Red like blood, that you hide from me Oh, oh oh oh, you were right You’ve got a wild side, you’ve got a wild side Oh oh oh oh, it can’t be denied You’re like the flood tide You’ve got a wild side Don’t you feel all the weight of the world on you When you’re holding what you’re holding Holding what you’re holding inside It’s a crazy thing what real love can do And you didn’t see it coming, didn’t see it coming down the line Burning coal beneath the ash I see you now, we can’t go back Oh, oh oh oh, you were right You’ve got a wild side, you’ve got a wild side Oh oh oh oh, it can’t be denied You’re like the flood tide You’ve got a wild side Do all those things at night turn off your tragic light? Do all those things at night turn off your tragic light? The perfect mask of a common man With a wounded heart and a master plan Oh, oh oh oh, you were right You’ve got a wild side, you’ve got a wild side Oh oh oh oh, it can’t be denied You’re like the flood tide You’ve got a wild side You’re like the flood tide

Drifter 03:51
Drifter (Words and music by Noëlle Hampton) Friend, you're a drifter to the end And I still remember when I could see you from the shore And friend, if you make it back to land Come and find me if you can My heart will always live inside of yours Oooh ooh ooh… Once, we were young and wild and free And you tied yourself to me Like a safety boat, I knew I'd need you Once, you would tell me everything And we'd run and swim and sing And if I ached, you would ache too Oooh ooh ooh… Oh friend, there's an ocean in the way And some things I'd like to say It doesn't help us to ignore And friend, you're a drifter to the end And I still remember when I could see you from the shore
