'Boy In The Bubble'
It was a dry wind
And it swept across the desert
And it curled into the circle of birth
The Mississippi Delta was shining
Like a National guitar
'I Know What I Know'
And I guess she thought
I was all right
All right in a sort of a limited way
You don't feel you could love me
But I feel you could
'Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes'
She makes the sign of a teaspoon
and he makes the sign of a wave
'You Can Call Me All'
He looks around, around
He sees angels in the architecture
Spinning in infinity
He says: "Amen, hallelujah"
'Under African Skies'
This is the powerful pulsing of love in the vein
After the dream of falling and calling your name out
These are the roots of rhythm and the roots of rhythm are the same
Nhliziyo yami somandla angibulele mama
'Crazy Love Vol. II'
Somebody could walk into this room
And say your life is on fire
It's all over the evening news
'That Was Your Mother'
Along come a young girl
She's pretty as a prayerbook
Sweet as an apple on Christmas day
I said good gracious, can this be my luck
If that's my prayerbook
Lord, let us pray
All Around the World Or The Myth Of Fingerprints
It was the myth of fingerprints
I've seen them all and they are all the same
