Clouds & Mountains is a folk-rock ensemble based out of Boulder, Colorado.

Track Name: I Wonder
All of the whiskey is gone
and I'm still thinking of you.

I wonder just what you're doing
and I'm wishing that I was there too.
Track Name: Heat Spell
I will be a statue with you.
I will be still and true.
I will be by your side.
There will be no disguise.
Sun warmed, calm skin. Light heat, lovely.

I will be a statue for you.
I will be full and true.
I will carve out a line.
We will stand in the skies.
Moon chilled, soft skin. Dark heat, lovely.

I will make a statue with you.
We will see the art of two.
I will follow your lead.
We will breath in a dream.
Heart held, heat spell.
A constant sculpture.
Track Name: Amelia
Amelia.

Where will you go? What will you see?
When will you know the tree of you and me?
Somewhere in the night as you go passing by,
I'm fast asleep. I wake and wonder why.

Amelia.

Up in the hills or far out to sea,
I travel west and you, you travel east.
A flower in spring has no one to blame.
I'm glowing to my roots just saying your name.

Amelia.

Never could a word explain how I feel.
I know that you know that I know what I say is real.
Track Name: Lonely Instead
I'm walking around this town by myself and I'm singing inside of my head.
I did not expect to feel like this when you left me alone.
It's as though I'm drawn and quartered by the steeds of my own volition,
but I do not mind for it makes me realize that I am alive and well.

I should recount and figure this out because I owe this to you.
There was something about the way our eyes would meet and stay,
and the simplest thing, endearing and free as laughter escapes on the breeze.

I got to say 'I wish you had stayed a little longer with me.'
Here I am lonely instead and I've got this song to sing.

Maybe you'll call when you come to my city or somewhere close by.
We can go out and paint up the town with any color we like.
I'll dress up real nice, sharp as a knife. I suppose I'll dress to impress.
I imagine we'll be surrounded by friends and we will be happy that we met.

I've got to say, 'I wish you had stayed a little longer with me.'
Here I am lonely instead and I've got this song to sing.

Darling I'm down on my knees.
Track Name: Some Day
These are the days when we lay the foundation down.
I don't want make no more mistakes.
I don't want to leave nothing out.
I'm not sure if I've got it right but I'm gonna try.
These are the days when I feel so close to dying.

Some day I won't be so far away.

I don't know when, where, why, how, who or to what extent,
I've been here before I just can't recall how I got here again.
It seems I should know by now how it goes but I'm lost all the same.
This life that I found I see that it made me this way.

Some day I won't be so far away.
Track Name: All the Time
We started out from the freeze and from the thaw.
And our hearts are hung on the moments that we were.
You're light will float in and out of my mind,
and I want you all the time.

I grew so fond of you and the way that we fit,
but we both knew that soon we'd have to call it in.
And I hope some day that we will find another way,
cause I want you all the time.
I want you all the time.

I don't want to be without you.
I don't want to sleep alone.
I want to wake up by your side.
I want you all the time.

Love me darlin', don't leave me for long.
Hold me honey, and I will hold you with my body and soul.

Cause I want you all of the time.
I want you all of the time.
Track Name: Distances
Will you come and be with me soon?
I love to see you.
I will travel around the world to be near you.

Oh my. My love.
I would spend this time
with you now, somehow.
I would go a great distance for you.

I will build you the things you need.
I will use my hands and my instincts.
I don't know what this will look like,
but I can keep my eyes open wide.

Oh my. My love.
I would spend this time
with you now, somehow.
I would go a great distance for you.
Track Name: Letter
I don't want to open your letter.
I'm happy just to hold it for now.
It brings much joy to my day just seeing how you wrote my name.
It seems like it's been such a long time since we've taken the moments to write.
I really want to open your letter, but maybe I'll just wait till tonight

I just opened your letter...
Track Name: Hill Country Stone
I'm glad you let me know.
I'm so glad you let me know.
I'm glad you let me know that you couldn't love me anymore.

It's better for me to be in love with being alone than to be with another who doesn't care when or where I go.
I'd rather rely on myself through the hardest of times than to look for a hand to hold that ends up cold without concern.

I'm so glad you let me know.
I'm glad you let me know.
I'm glad you let me know that you couldn't love me anymore.

I like to think of a home I can build on my own of hill country stone where no one will bother me there.
Being lonesome is what I prefer with some time on my own happy alone where loneliness is no where to be found.

I'm glad you let know.
I'm so glad you let me know.
I'm glad you let me know that you couldn't love me anymore.
