wonderdog Whispered words over strings - a bit like Angus & Julia Stone before they found rock. I think the next album from ösö will be pretty good. Favorite track: The Dog Song (for cody).

Track Name: Occupy Your Heart
A heart’s a scary place,
The dark it tries to take,
Tries to break its bottled hearts, like glass,
Up against the curb,
And crash, where water meets the shore,
Where body meets the soul,


We found love,
We found love,
Occupy your heart,


Me and darlin' we don't need much,
We got each other and that's enough for us,

I don’t buy her love and she don’t buy mine,
The sweetest dang love the whole world can find,

And there's no thing that overcomes,
When it's love, you know it's found us,
And I don't doubt that you're the one,

When it sweeps beneath my feet and through my heart,
Forget about the words "it's just too hard,"

We found love,
We found love,
Occupy your heart,


Let love in, little darling,
Let love in, let it find you,

Let love in, let it sweep beneath your feet and through your heart.

We found love,
We found love,
Occupy your heart.
Track Name: Now That I Am Older
I, thought I'd find,
What's truly mine,
When it's not mine.

He would run up mountains high,
Just to have your kiss goodnight,

You'd get hitched and fly to Spain,
If he could just recall your name,

Spit his poison, play the fool,
Your dress lies in the coldest room,

In a haze, from what he gave to you,
Was it all worth what he took from you.

Now that I am older,
I feel like I am looking, looking,
The world is tired of waiting,
The best things in life come when you least expect it.

Hey child, don't get down,
You were lost and now you're found,

My sister we are dirt,
dirt we came,
& we'll return,

My brother we are dirt,
dirt we came,
& we'll return,

Hey child, grow real tall,
Let the light hit the weak and small,

Now that I am older,
I feel like I am looking, looking,
The world is tired of waiting,
The best things in life come when you least expect it.
Track Name: Sails (I will love you)
I will love you,
If you'll do the same for me,

For me.

Faithful wind, go on and blow this town apart,
Bombs away, go on and take this broken heart,
& make it yours.

I will stand here knowing winds will blow,
Other ships have pathways of their own,
I will raise my sails and I’ll let go,
Knowing someday, you will be the one that points me home.

Breaking,
Breaking surfaces that crash and tumble over mind and body,

Building,
Building things that matter more than things could ever mean themselves.

In the finding, torment sees no end,
We'll keep fighting waves till our last breath.

I will stand here knowing winds will blow,
Other ships have pathways of their own,
I will raise my sails and I’ll let go,
Knowing someday, you will be the one that points me home.

I will love you, more than things could ever themselves,
I will love you, more than I could ever myself.
Track Name: The Dog Song (for cody)
If I was small and green,
Would you still love me,

If I were brown and wrinkly,
Would you still love me,

If some older guy pulled off my wings,
Would you still love me,

Would you help me, would you see,
Would you still love me,

Don't go chase,
Anything without a,
Anything without a,
Anything without a tail,

Don't go race,
All around my bedroom,
All around my bedroom,
All around my backyard,

Me and my pencil arms,
They're all up in your face,
You and that worn out grin,
It's all up in my.
Track Name: Wake Up
In the garden,
There’s a plant that looks just right,

It stopped growing,
Like her greenish hazel eyes,

How I love when,
All the rains come rushing down,
Oh how I love when,

Water washes all the earth,
Water washes all the dirt,
Water washes all of her.


There’s freedom in the sound of heart’s awake,

Our lives they don’t collide until it’s late enough for closing eyes.


So wake up,
Wake up,
Come back alive.

Wake up,
Wake up,
Come back alive.

Like a mother,
Or the dog that’s by her side,

They can feel things,
Heavy when the rain subsides,

How we love when,
When the rains come rushing down,
Oh how I love when,

Water washes all the earth,
Water washes all our dirt,
Something that we know is sure.

There’s freedom in the sound of heart’s awake,

Our lives they don’t collide until it’s late enough for closing eyes.


So wake up,
Wake up,
Come back alive.

Wake up,
Wake up,
Come back alive.
