Track Name: Bless Your Solstice
Outside there's an icicle
hanging from my window
Sometime not so long ago
it would've been a puddle

Now we'll all sing together & well build a fantastic fire
Knowing it's the beginning, when the vanishing days expire

Outside we go running
laughing through the splendor
Brush aside all your secret plans
and the frost on your sweater

Now we'll all sing together & well build a fantastic fire
Knowing now it's the ending, when the vanishing days expire
Stand right here in the middle --
The darkest, the coldest, my love bless your solstice

Outside there's an icicle
hanging down from my window
Springtime is not so long from now
by then it'll be a puddle

Now we'll all sing together & well build a fantastic fire
Knowing it's the beginning, when the vanishing days expire
Now we'll all sing together & well build a fantastic fire
Knowing now it's the ending, when the vanishing days expire
Track Name: What Do You Do With A Gift?
What do you do with a gift?
What do you do with a gift?
Do you keep it, return it,
or even notice it exists?
What do you do with a gift?

And what do you do with a kiss?
What do you do with a kiss?
Do you accept it, return it
to the sender's lips?
Oh, what do you do with a kiss?

Honey bee still, here's a hornet a' comin'
Straight for your garland of roses
That smart remark really stung, but I'm humming
A much different tune than I'd ever have chosen

What do you do with a gift?
A simple and heart-given gift
Do you wish it were larger, or sooner,
or cleverer?
What do you do with a gift?

And what do you do with a wish?
What do you do with a wish?
Do you take it for granted
or well-up so quickly?
Oh, what do you do with a wish?

Honey bee brave, here's a wild warp approaching
Sniffing your pink lemonade
Perhaps the best medicine is just poison
Now we're spinning 'round quickly like a 78

What do you do with a gift?
Sparkling eyes, a warm gentle kiss
Do you expect it to resemble
ones you've already been given?
Or will you open your hands to mine?
It's a present, but don't close your eyes...
Track Name: I'm Not Afraid Of The Dark
I'm not afraid of the dark
I'm not afraid of the dark
The shy sun don't last
he takes his bow so fast
But I'm not afraid of the dark

I'm not afraid of the cold
I'm not afraid of the cold
Some people go south
if they ever leave their house
No, but I'm not afraid of the cold

I'm not afraid to be alone
I'm not afraid to be alone
The big moon follows me
and keeps me company
So I'm not afraid to be alone

Oh! Ooh......

I'm not afraid of the snow
I'm not afraid of the snow
The earth sleeping hard
beneath those winter stars
Now but I'm not afraid of the cold
and I'm not afraid of the... DARK!
