all our worries and our cares any day now will turn in to air like a prayer any day now we’ll see the trees in the garden any day now filling their leaves with a sweetness any day now we’ve had many misfortunes and our lives have been hard and we season our troubles with a little bit of salt and we watch out for good signs and think about better days and worry about money but we find a way to pay and our families miss us we have lived so far and when we see them so seldom it’s very hard to part all our worries and our cares … when we came here we heard singing from a belly full and fat it was a mockingbird and we never heard a song like that and he came back every february and he made our hearts feel so glad like the sun had dried away the dark we waited one winter we waited till march we waited till april until it broke our hearts and then we thought we saw him but it was another bird it was not our old friend of the family all our worries and our cares …

My pals, do you want to ride on? My pals, do you want to ride far? That might be alright. If I’m free I might but what time would you leave? That sounds good, yeah we’ll see. That might be alright. If I’m free I might. If I’m not working, you might see me. If I don’t show ride on without me. Oh come on and say if you want to come (and say if you want to come, and say if you want to come) The city is our place. The beauty of our place. The city is our place. The beauty of my pals. My pals. If you wanna say you wanna, if you wanna say you wanna Say it, say it, say it If you really wanna come, say you really wanna come My pals. And what did I see? Nothing, instead we rolled on.

If you want to ride your bike over the hill while you sing a song, it's aright You could sing out anything you like, jump up and down while you sing a modern country song Burn like a candle to the other side, without going out, because you’re not so small anymore. Sail like a bullet on the firing line, face towards the ground until you find another angle. Hey yo, I said, “don’t want to make sense of it all” No never said that you could Hey yo, not best to want to make sense of it all Even in Vallejo At night Root for a pitcher, and his name's CC, I don't know him but my cousin does, that's my boy And for the center fielder Coco Crisp, name like a treat and his feet are moving everywhere Say we know a guy who never gets paid, works for fun, lets the camera roll all day And set out in the summer night, watching a movie by the fire with the fireflies Got a heap to do, but it can wait, my friend’s got a house in need of some love and paint I’ll come over in the afternoon, work for a while, have a beer and take it slow now Hey yo, I said, “don’t want to make sense of it all” No never said that you could Hey yo, not best to want to make sense of it all Even in Vallejo At night It’s alright Oh, don’t want to make sense of it all No never said that you could

wake up so early in the morning when the night is cold the air is dry, the air is bold deliver your feet to the road and your face to the sky the stars are flour, the flour is fine sweep it down in to the bowl, you're gonna bake it salt it later, all in good time now go to the lake and wait till the sun is up and when the water is bright, fill your cup fill it up full and add it to the bowl of flour let it rise many hour you will know it is ready when the dough is high, now you knead it, all in good time remember to salt it and knead it slowly, or the bread is gonna show it now you knead it, all in good time oh baker knead it down and make us something to eat all the moments in the past lead up to the one just last there is nothing new under the sun and likewise, nothing ever is old take it to the oven and set it on the heated stone the flour is seed, the seed is sewn you will know it is ready when the dough is singing like a starling, all in good time now you feel it, are you ever gonna eat it? now you eat it, all in good time oh baker knead it down and make us something to eat all in good time

the cold it came so quietly like a breathing breath from me the wind from the north crept under the door disturbing my family the cold it came so quietly it swept the sky and scoured the air and polished the night as bright as a bell and tied up the sap in the crackling bark of the trees like a spell the ash and the maple and the walnut as well it put its bitter fingers down down into the living ground and turned them the way you'd turn a key in a lock that you found locked the life up in the ground we pull ourselves together and the joke's on the cold as we find out that we remember the way our bodies can lock together and keep us warm and warm forever now the joke is on the cold

Angel, queen of my heart please girl You’ve stringed up, me I’m your Chinese pearl Cause you know that I am under Your spell you little sorcerer You know it’s by design Probably so, because the scientists don’t lie, the scientists don’t lie
 Maybe, clean up my heart please girl (Clean up, clean up, up) Take away all my dreams, too (Clean up, clean up, up, take take, them all, all) Sweep them like you’d clean a warehouse When you’re done you’ll shake the rugs out Open the doors and let the bugs fly on Help me now because the scientists don’t like, an oath and a binding tie Cause when I wake up and I take a look at your smile I wanna’ stay home Help me out, give me a reason, to stay oh, and not leave you Help me maybe? The scientists don’t lie, an oath and a binding tie You’ve been struck by cupid’s arrow

Eyes big and bright and your hair combed to the side of your head Wave up and down as you wave up and down it seems you keep with sound it seems you keep with the beat on time, on time Keep that smile we wanna see you keep that smile Smile open wide as you move your way across on the floor tip on your toes ballet dance away like you know Hand to your mouth you make your indian sounds you go "oh oh oh" on time, on time Keep that smile we wanna see you keep that smile One thing to another keyboard to a saucer pulling down the records til you redirect her Now she's to the glider moving things beside her jumping in the bouncer crumple piece of paper It doesn't matter don't distract her we just wanna see her keep that smile we wanna see you keep that smile

Help you find your peace now Like so many people Keep on dancing Don’t save it now Keep on dancing What are you saving for? You were in the city late at night Way before Mom was born Said you never heard that kind of music before Keep on dancing Don’t save it now Keep on dancing What are you saving for? And I’ll say it so, until all the people are

Quiet all the noise in your mind. (Come on and take a walk with me) All the worried troubles going on. (Come on evening sun, lay down) No matter what is going on. (I’m gonna’ make it better) If it’s cold inside your house, just turn on the heater. No roll me inside your mouth, I’ll warm you up better. Come on and take a walk with me. The only friend you’ll ever need. Quiet all the noise in your mind. (Oh be my insulator) Cause if you should fail me now. (I’d have to see the full layers) No matter what is so wrong. (I’m gonna make it better) Cause if you should fail me now. (You’d be my soul revealer) If it’s cold inside your house, just turn on the heater No roll me inside your mouth, I’ll warm you up better Come on and take a walk with me. Gonna stamp that malady. I don’t want you going anywhere now. (Don’t you know). On my own.

about

The photo on the cover for FADES was snapped in Death Valley in 2009, which is probably when the first few of these songs were just germinating. It didn't take very long to write them all, but we took our good time recording them. We did all the recording in our homes in San Francisco, plus a little bit in Buffalo, and even a little tiny bit in Philadelphia. Be that as it may, Fades is definitely a native California wildflower.
