about

Coconut bay is a collection of lopsided lilts and lonely love songs; whose tempo does not exceed that of the beating of a napping heart. Suitable for introspective home bodies, secretly introspective homebodies and all-perspective all-bodies.

Track Name: flotsam parade
Downtown revival
silicon cavalcade
I know you from inside
my brother my babe

I have fish for supper
oh the taste
of salt on my lips
is my saving grace

You're going away
in the flotsam parade
She is so beautiful
so save me grace

I have fish for supper
savor the trace
of salt on my lips
loving aftertaste

Midnight
has turned upside-down
shooting stars
are just sitting around

having fish for supper
oh the the taste
of salt on my lips
is my saving grace
Track Name: eye of my storm
It rained through the day
and all through the night.
For fear of drowning
we lay under
blankets and eyelids
and the roofs of the places
whose shelter we could remember.

Everything iron
was going to rust
under a mighty flood.
And luscious fields that began with dust
returned to man, and so to mud

Comfort is here in this rest
and the quiet thunder
of your sleeping breath.

Stay as you are,
the time to wake
will come with the early morn.
When you arise
I promise you'll find
I have been transformed.

Stay as you are
in virtues cup,
until a hurricane is born.
And when you rise
I will take you up
in the eye of my storm.
Track Name: crescent moon
Every wave of water
sinking into each other,
living the course of pleasure,
mocking the yearning lover.

Oh I am lonesome for you
I thirst as the ocean do.

Escape in the midnight loom.
Dance a crystal ballroom.
Night time is a fairy godmother,
if you want her.

Oh I am lonesome for you
I plead as the crickets do.
Oh I am lonesome for you.
I am a crescent moon,
I am.
Track Name: can't stand to lose
Hold me,
don't hold me close.
Oh devoted lover
everybody knows.
A heart is a starving pyre.
My hunger might eat your desire.

and I can't stand to lose
I can't stand to lose this time.

Hold me,
but hold me up.
Oh I know,
I know its enough.
The length of an arm is still a grip.
I can feel you with my fingertips.

and I can't stand to lose
I can't stand to lose this time.

Don't pull me in,
but don't let go.
Oh devoted lover
everybody knows.
A hearts like this,
insatiable fire
your hunger my drown my desire.

and I can't stand to lose
I can't stand to lose this time.
Track Name: Nightingale, diving loon
By mid-July
the spotlight is hot.
Staring you down,
slowing the clock.
Cutting through the sour heat,
and tales grown tall as stalks of wheat,

come a nightingale
and a diving loon,
singing through the afternoon.
The air is thick
and I'm dumb too,
but I know your song,
your music,
your whistling tune.

The day turned in
and also red.
The light came down,
the air seemed dead.
In the stillness that promised it was alright,
came the faint smell of lilac in the rising night,

with a nightingale
and a diving loon
hallowed by the light of the moon.
Feed me seed of your mothers spoon,
with your song,
your music,
your midnight croon.
