Some lyrics from "One Hundred Words for Water":

Song for Yannick

We came back from the trip
Without an answer, without an answer
Heâd been waiting for us here
Rationing his food and water

Turn the key in the dark
Heâs like a chess piece, after two weeks
Heâs still waiting for us here
Rationing his food and water.

Our routine is looming while heâs grooming
Lie on the eiderdown, we go from lost to found.
In the backyard, he is free
offering his tune for three.

It was all the same to him
the same bed,
it was all the same where
heâd rest his head.
He led us back to us.
He needs us less and less.

We decide to feel it all
We forget about our angry scrawl
Our love, he did reinstall
So letâs get down to city hall.


Prelude and Epilogue

Hold on to the edge of the boat
we'll go 1, 2, 3 for broke.

Shadows are longer as we clear the bay
Dinner bell is ringing as we sail away

When we fall down to the bottom where we've never been.
Our feet touch the ocean floor
We step 8, 9, 10 ashore.

We're on crown land, we run into the Queen
Just like us, she tries stay unseen
Public lifeâ¦
this heat is getting to me.

Autumnâs here itâs almost too late
To dive into this cold lake
Now Iâm in over my head
The waves are what I must tread.


1000 Jacobs

1000 Jacobs make their way
across the darkening causeway
and in my flip book
I can recall his every look.

The pages turning make a breeze
Across my face putting me at ease
And oh his green eyes photograph well
Though he denies it.

Iâm losing sight of the day
I caught the ferry too late
Youâll never see my storage house
I stash, I stash all I can find of you
then, replay on my evening walk
You know, Iâm holding you close when I cross

1000 knotted laces come undone
with his embraces, itâs all or none
and in my quietude, the thought of his face
I canât refuse

Iâm losing sight of the day
I caught the ferry too late
Youâll never reach my storage house
I stash, I stash all I can find of you
Then replay
On my evening walk
You know, Iâm holding you close when I cross
Make my way home without a loss

He lies on a bench above the snow
The wake he leaves behind is deep and colourful
I try to make my way home without a loss
The pages, I hold close when I cross,
Make my way home without a lossâ¦



Ghost in a Landscape

You jumped to the ground
The jig is up now
Your hiding place
You tried to remember
What brought you here
To all the faces staring
Theyâll take you out
Far from the country
Far from the country

They put your portrait the corner
You were the only one in a landscape
Leaning against the ruins that they made
Everyone else was sitting with their hands in their laps,
With their hands in their laps, with their hands in their laps,
With their hands in their laps.

And so you write from rooms
You pay for by the week until you can come home
The legends grow
You wish the crown would fall in your sleep
In your garden, under the arc they thought they saw you passing through
You used to talk to ghosts
And now it seems that you have become one too.


Ophelia

I walked down the stairs
And saw the ground floor flooded
So I took off my robe
And I took off my slippers
I left them on the steps
And walked into the water.

He might have left a note somewhere
By now, itâs floated down
I couldnât be bothered fishing for a note
I couldnât be bothered.
Below the window I float
I canât see outside and no one sees in

Iâve grown to like
Swimming in my living room
The dust is underwater
I canât see it no more
The dust is underwater
No |I canât see it no more.

(Verse 2 repeats)
Below, below, below, lie lowâ¦
Below the window I float
I canât see outside and no one sees in.


Charlie

You want me here to witness it all
So it will all be true
But Charlie Iâm through, Charlie Iâm through
Iâm through seeing for you.
For seven months, I underscore
I was grieving a loss
You let me sleep on your living room floor
You became my boss.

Now Charlie Iâm through, Charlie Iâm through
seeing for you.
Charlie Iâm through, Charlie Iâm through
seeing for you.

When you had to find new limits
You wanted me to be your witness
Donât want to watch you jump through fire
Donât even want to enquire.

Charlie Iâm through, Charlie Iâm through
seeing for you.
Charlie Iâm through, Charlie Iâm through
seeing for you.

You showed me all your videotapes
To help me understand
Just how much thousands adore you
All across the land
And as soon as you open the door
They come calling for more
You want me here to help you ignore
But I canât no more.

Now, Charlie Iâm through, Charlie Iâm through
seeing for you.
Charlie Iâm through, Charlie Iâm through
seeing for you.


Two Boys

I left two boys on the roadside of love
I left two boys on the roadside
I saw them embrace from a mile away
then they were gone as my ride turned the corner

On the roadside of love
Iâd seen enough
On the roadside of love
We parted

On the roadside of love
I gave them up
On the roadside of love

Weâd step aside, let the tanks roll by
The sound would bury their cries.
They kept me up, oh they kept me up
There were no curtains for me to shut

On the roadside of love
Iâd seen enough
On the roadside of love
We parted

On the roadside of love
I gave them up
On the roadside of love

Theyâll be better off now
The river to the left widens out
The motor runs loud
Lets me space out
We donât talk,
We donât talk.


Clouds

We were well camouflaged in the clouds
I forgot all about the strings
That used to pull me left then right
On the tracks, the cabins that were small and tight.

I have named all the cows in the field
Now theyâre all too small to see
Even if we yelled out loud
Our voice couldnât penetrate the cloud
Even if we yelled out loud
Our voice couldnât penetrate the cloud.

Off with your left and off with your right shoe
Watch how they quickly fall from view
Down to the ocean or slide off the side of a mountain
I can see the sign for 5 Roses
Clouds of flour under our noses
