Lyrics

Whisper

Written By: Casey MacKenzie


Your running hands like water
Are cold on my skin
And I just want to feel the sun

But its just a line on this paper
Another song
Only sung in a whisper

‘Cause you’re fading faster
Than I fell for your words
Babe, we’re drowning

Unspoken words linger
Unable to be found
But we both know you’re being let down

I am not mistaken
Don’t look to the ground
I still love you with a different sound

But you’re fading faster
Than I fell for your words
Babe, we’re drowing

Ooooh drowing Ooooh

You’re fading faster
Than I fell for your words
I can’t take this
We cannot make it now
Babe we’re drowning

Great Day

Written By: Casey MacKenzie

The grass is green
The park is as pretty as should be
Kids are running flawlessly
Through the summer wind

Dogs are barking
But nobody seems to mind
I just lay back
Let the lazy day drift on by

And it’s a

Great day to live
Great day to love
And spin around in circles
Throw up our arms
And fearlessly run

Clouds are smiling
The pool is the
Prettiest shade of blue
Reflecting colors in a circle
Dancing as the perfect hue

And it’s a

Great day to live
Great day to love
And spin around in circles
Throw up our arms
And fearlessly run

I’ve been waiting, anticipating
New possibilities

And it’s a

Great day to live
Great day to love
And spin around in circles
Throw up our arms
And fearlessly run

Hummingbird

Written By: Casey MacKenzie

Carousels with their tiny dancers
race with their hands to the sky
engaging dark
watching birds
circled and dive
You are reading your books
and dodging the looks off of
every worried face
as the clock tick tocks
it’s haunting refrain

Singing
if you could change
anger fate
We won’t ask why
Just close your eyes
Oh please stay
we love you this way
We will all go to hell
For dreaming so well

Ancient Trees with their
Ancient Seasons are strange
but oh so wise
Telling you
Hummingbird
Don’t let dreamers eyes
go blind
Or you’ll keep
flying in circles
And pecking at nothing
Just to keep pacing the cage
As the west wind sings
It’s sad refrain

Singing
if you could change
anger fate
We won’t ask why
Just close your eyes
Oh please stay
we love you this way
We will all go to hell
For dreaming so well
