He's a hard laboring stranger Unaware of the danger As he works himself down to the bone He wades in the water Prays for his unborn daughter In the crest of every breaking wave Won't you come rescue him He's waiting for his life to begin Grant him a new skin So he can make it to the change She's an unemployed sister Dependent on her Mr. To get her through each waking day She's got no gold in her pocket No family picture in the locket That she wears around her slender neck Won't you come rescue her Give her what every woman deserves She's on her final shaky nerve Waiting for the change Oh the change the change the change it's a coming... I'm just a traveler on the river Just a traveler on the river Waiting for a boat to come I'm a hopeless believer A lover and a dreamer Waiting for change to come Won't you come sail with me Ride the under belly of what life can be On this current of pure ecstasy As we wait on the change Oh the change the change the change it's a coming... I'm just a traveler on the river Just a traveler on the river Waiting for change to come

I'm no space explorer I'm no earth adventurer Yet we go Fly... Into Space From my heavenly perch I watched him die He had been bleeding All through the night The earth spun And the planets crashed But his soul never looked back It just flew... To the moon... All you want Is to feel the rush Of the rocket ships As they take off But I want nothing more Than to touch down And Bury my beating heart in the groung Yet we fly... Into space I'm no space explorer I'm no earth adventurer Yet we go Fly... We go fly.. We go flying... To the stars

There's a smoking gun Bit a hole into my world There's a smoking gun lying on the kitchen table And I lean on the trigger... And the hole it gets bigger I'm bleeding out on the street corner Sitting at the bottom of the social order Watch the world pass me by I'm left to die And I lean on the trigger... And the hole it gets bigger... Revolution isn't a short story Years of frustration Moments of glory Building pressure with time Until the crowds arise And they lean on the trigger... Boom Bang Boom Bang CRASH!! Boom Bang Boom Bang CRASH!! And the old falls apart Bless those with GunPOWder Bless those with GunPOWder Bless those like me With GunPOWder hearts

I got no string I got no heart I'm falling apart as the world goes around I lost my head I lost my mind Losing sight as I'm falling down There aint no rest for the weary There's no land of milk and honey There's no sugar at the end of the spoon There's just me and you We traverse past the end of existence Fighting always for the resistance But we're cold and lost And don't know if we'll survive Oh this turbulent life She hung her head No words were said As the silence hung in the empty space He sat down And looked around Hoping an answer would fall from Grace But there aint no rest for the weary There's no land of milk and honey There's no sugar at the end of the spoon There's just me and you We traverse past the end of existence Fighting always for the resistance But we're cold and lost And don't know if we'll survive Oh this turbulent life They walked on Bled till dawn Their souls as weary as the holes in their shoes He took her hand And she grinned For there is nothing more they could do For there aint no rest for the weary There's no land of milk and honey There's no sugar at the end of the spoon There's just me and you We sailed past the end of existence Fighting always for the resistance and if we did some good along the way only God can say For there aint no rest for the weary There aint no land of milk and honey There aint no sugar at the end of the spoon But at least There was me and you

Sometimes life is like a soggy cigarette It's full of poison And tastes like regret But it sure feels good going down Sometimes the world is spinning so fast You can't seem to get a break Or make anything good last But I'll remember I'll remember you It's all waiting for you Just open up your mind It's all waiting for you You're part of the grand design It's all waiting for you Like the monsters under your bed It's all waiting for you Get into your heart and out of your head Sometimes words just aren't enough They get stuck in the cracks That shit piles up It's confusing Sometimes dreams just let you down All those damn expectations As your head gets turned around But don't get lost now It's all waiting for you Just open up your mind It's all waiting for you You're part of the grand design It's all waiting for you Like the monsters under your bed It's all waiting for you Get into your heart and out of your head

You slipped a star into my pocket And I strapped myself to a rocket ship And I flew away... But only for a day I blew out all the candles And I made a great big wish And I flew away... It was my birthday Thought I'd break into a million pieces From all the pressure building up inside So I looked for a place to put it I tried my best to hide So I flew away... Never to be heard from

Sun Sun Sun Warming my skin Slow slow slow That's how it begins Honey honey Honey on your mouth Feelings I can't speak aloud Heat heat heat Between my thighs Pleading As the temperature rises I tried so hard to fight it Tried my best to be free But baby You got to Me Brush brush brush My fears away Kiss Me The do it again Please Chase chase Chase my tears with your touch Vulnerable isn't a place I visit much Tried my best to be free But baby You got to Me I tried my best to fight it I tried not to give in But you're far better at cards And I don't want to battle Don't want to go to war Let's abandon our egos And stop keeping score You you you Are the one that I want Soft Soft is my heart now Let let Let yourself go I promise To take it slowly Tried my best to be free But baby You got to Me Tried my best to be free But love love Love Got To Me

He whispers In my ear drum Soft and warm I reach for the sky now Feel the wind rush When there's no storm And I... I'm falling slowly Slowly In love With you And I... I'm falling slowly And from this height Only slow will do... The leaves fall down But I I stand up tall Red isn't a color It's a reason to not try At all And I... I'm falling slowly Slowly In love With you And I... I'm falling slowly And only your love will do

There's a Kaleidoscope Underneath your pillow Twist and turn Change your stars There's a sun that burns For every almost tomorrow The one you can't see is ours Breathe in Hold me between your fingers like a cigarette Breath out The taste of your lips I won't forget Take it deep And when you breathe Think of me Twist and turn The water is unkind You're a victim of the tide Washed up on shore Your dreams just drift away But with each chase of the hourglass So begins a new day Breathe in Hold me between your fingers like a cigarette Breath out The taste of your lips I won't forget Take it deep And when you breathe Think of me I've been waiting a thousand life times For this moment to arrive Finally our planets have alligned And we can just Be Breathe in Breathe out again Take it deep And you breathe Think of me

about

I threw this album together in the summer of 2013 just before I hit the road for a lil tour. In 40 days, I played 30 shows, in 7 states. It felt incredible. The only thing I wanted was to keep on going. This is music I played on that trip.

Special Thanks to my family, the city of Portland and all the people who live there, and to every person who doesn't have a home. These songs are for you.

Whim Grace

Whim Grace is a feeling, a woman, and a way. Born on an island with existence singing in her ears, she walks the line of dream, seeking harmony, story, and connectivity. She is perpetually expanding the boundaries of possibility while diving into shadows to retrieve the pearls hidden within the cracks of humanity. Her lyrics sear. Her voice is the salve. ... more
