Pass This House

and so today

i felt the light go on

and so today

i saw him

he said, “see ya,

when i get home.”

so then i get

a little idea

don’t be naïve

don’t be so neat

don’t pass this house

today today today

so now i drove

down our street

is it really our time?

today today today

don’t be naïve

don’t be so neat

don’t pass this house

today today today

and as i drove

i got a little lost

but i found out

where i came from

don’t be naïve

don’t be so neat

don’t pass this house

today today today

 
Lyrics

1. Pass This House
Shauna Burns  

Run Away

run away

where would you

like to go

run away?

just tell me

over hill and dale

we’ll run away

together just stay

run away

through the hills

over the walls

made of stone

we’ll run away

run away

 
Lyrics

2. Run Away
Shauna Burns  

Portobello

hurry girl curry girl
i know that you’ve
been there before
slightly half in a sort of
in a – in a porthole
now you can’t stand the sight of
every molecule
now you have to just
love yourself once more
right past now
portobello
not long now
you’ll be skippin
away won’t you?
now you can’t stand the sight of
every molecule
now you have to just
love yourself once more
don’t cut it up you said you said
don’t cut it back you said you said
lush growth feel it now
can’t touch the edge
don’t lift your head
you heard it all before
that lush growth
now you can’t stand the sight of
every molecule
now you have to just
love yourself once more
and now you’ve got to get the courage to
now you have to come face to face with
who you are

 
Lyrics

3. Portobello
Shauna Burns  

Seascape Sonata

burnt as crisp

it is only now

that i see you there boys

purple smells good enough

i said it’s good enough

to eat all up

canada seems as cold

as ice now

the sun seems to hold her head up high

but now i am here

on the sea

run to her

she’ll take you for a ride

can’t get enough

now now now now now now

little to picture perfect

silence the waves

sand is found in a place

and i can’t eat (i can’t eat)

canada seems as cold

as ice now

the sun seems to hold her head up high

when does this boat ride end?

with mixed up fans and fish

when does this boat ride end…

with sandpipers hats and blue blue blue goo

but now i am here

on the sea

run to her

she’ll take you for a ride

 
Lyrics

Catapult

you see the truth in me

everything is right there

a safe place in the blue

a safe place for you

so you catapult to a place

far in between the lines

even in bermuda

the view is still the same

he played you once so well

but oh well my dear he’ll pay

find me here yesterday

find me here today

find me here yesterday

safe in the blue

so you catapult to a place

far in between the lines

even in bermuda

the view is still the same

babies find their way

even in the rain

babies find you

even when you’re through

so you catapult to a place

far in between the lines

even in bermuda

the view is still the same

every time every time every time

 
Lyrics

5. Catapult
Shauna Burns  

Little Song

so he held her hand
for as long as i can see
“oh, can’t you see my way?”
letting go now anyway
falmouth check is in
sand now in your eyes
just let her chase you
out of the blue
singing
la la la la la la la
i thought he just floats
through and through
but now he may
just surprise you
no chocolate in sight
but still blazed her night
oh wandering down the lane
now it’s about time
he sang
la la la la la la la
i know he still hears you cry
i know he still hears your cry
singing
la la la la la la la

 
Lyrics

6. Little Song
Shauna Burns  

Orchid

orchid favoring every inch

orchid fearing every width

orchid

long and blue

orchid

white and light

orchid

soft and black

i can’t take the pain away

put your hand on my knee

just for a little while

while i search out for her

hand me a piece of your hair

did i see someone in there?

untamed not unlike you

pierce me right through

orchid

long and blue

orchid

white and light

orchid

soft and black

i can’t take the pain away

put your hand on my knee

just for a little while

while i search out for her

in him is a map back to you

i can’t take the pain away

put your hand on my knee

just for a little while

while i search out for her

Twist

it’s all about me

finding tea

hee hee hee

marry me

she’s got a little twist

can can can

can can can

she facilitate

all she can

she’s all she can

silicate

she’s got a little twist

in and out

can’t find a soul

so put it back

return to gold

she’s got a little twist

i’m deeply layered

i’m deeply layered

with all my

requirements

so there you go

can’t take it now

i’ll make you

i’ll make you

cause

 
Lyrics

8. Twist
Shauna Burns  

Vienna

and when i got to vienna

she said, “i changed my mind

on the plane ride over.

hey, but thanks anyway.”

so now what am i supposed to do

in the meantime

she was so mean that other time

when he left her on the river bend

just screaming

did they come out to greet you?

i thought not

but you can still heal can’t you?

so jill still thinks of you the same always

screaming

so what?  didn’t she know?

so what?  didn’t she know?

herself was falling out?

just screaming

just let her feel

and when i got to vienna

she said, “i changed my mind.”

 
Lyrics

9. Vienna
Shauna Burns  

Savor

(savor)

there you can see it

now… can i feel it

favor me for a while

(savor)

once when i saw you

look… inside you

stay with me for a while

she’s hiding again

you better not blink

for all of this

might be a dream

(savor)

you can’t see me

peek… over my nose again

the sun is a shield

she’s hiding again

you better not blink

for all of this

might be a dream

will you savor this garden fare?

she’s hiding again

you better not blink

for all of this

might be a dream

might be a mean

might be a fiend

might be a seed

just might be a

 
Lyrics

10. Savor
Shauna Burns  

Violet

sample your next

harbored feeling

push right through

covering the truth

escape into the black

night keeps it fair

even in the morning break

it’s still kept here

so violet is here

and violence ensues

to conquer all he knows that

“she will break”

when lavender fills

overstated grace

blinding now calms

in a blue haze

so violet is here

and violence ensues

to conquer all he knows that

“she will break”

push high and to the right

push high and to the right

forgotten sounds anytime

close enough to hear

kept it tightly wrapped around

the venus flytrap told

push high and to the right

push high and to the right

so violet is here

and violence ensues

to conquer all he knows now

“she will never break”

 
Lyrics

11. Violet
Shauna Burns  

Above Abiquiu

high above

looking out

sand in now

before it somehow

silk from the past

bestows her grace

her final stage

amazing grace

i seek to find the truth

i seek to find my breath

i seek to find the edge

i seek to find an in

all is a thought

a thought of what could be

and what could be of you and me?

i seek to find the truth

i seek to find my breath

i seek to find the edge

i seek to find an in

this is now manipulated

my turquoise friend

abiquiu give to me

a rub and a purr

i seek to find the truth

i seek to find my breath

i seek to find the edge

i seek to find an in

mesa’s come forth

the rock takes form

land is now and then

high above

looking out

 
Lyrics

12. Above Abiquiu
Shauna Burns  

Mesilla

heave

heave back to the earth

inside it all

where it begins

nothing to hide

mesilla

where it ends

where the edges are cracked

thrust her over the edge

into where you can see

cause thrust and save and savor all

all you can see

mesilla

where it ends

where the edges are cracked

so you put it all back

so you put it all up

cactus bloom

wide open to invoke

mesilla

where it ends

where the edges are cracked

when sage creeps into the pores

find yourself inside

on the other side

the other side of her

mesilla

where it ends

where the edges are cracked

she bares it all

she gives it to you

and nothing falls short

 
Lyrics

13. Mesilla
Shauna Burns  

See Her Again

when she goes we’ll see her again

in our dreams we’ll see her again

when she goes we’ll see her again
