Katopothis Lyrics: WHEELS TURN I'll take my chances, fingers crossed I won't remember, the times I've lost no I'll keep on fighting for that prize no matter what the cost I'll take my chances, fingers crossed I've taken to walking in the middle of the night I think more clearly without the light oh I can see for miles but I've kept you in my sight I can see for miles but I've kept you in my sight wheels turn, waters rise and every time I'm taken wheels turn, waters rise and I'm taken by surprise I had a question posed to me I did not know what the answer should be so I just kept on talking, kept on talking like the words would set me free oh I just kept on talking like the words would set me free It's second nature in the first degree the heart's desire, can't let it be now there's no way to let go gracefully It's second nature in the first degree chorus TAKE CARE WITH ME Summer came on Tuesday we welcomed her arrival with open arms begged her to stay roses in the backyard blooming for survival crimson heads, move and sway take care with me, take care with me hunting out shade song in the afternoon stories turn to memories painted light colors come to life in this fearless sky take care with me, take care with me take care with me, take care with me you look me in the eye corners of your mouth curl up a smile looking back at you losing sense of time hold me for a while chorus THE SAME MOON When she looks up into the night the same moon shines the same moon shines the same moon shines Tennessee is a long way from here she left that place in the rear view mirror with two tall daughters and a boy in between she left that place, she kept the precious things family trees, roots run deep family ties you can't always keep where you're born may not be where you're from she left that place, she came the long way home when she looks up into the night the same moon shines when she looks up into the night the same moon shines the same moon shines the same moon shines years move on, they come and they will go she held on to the things that mattered most so many nights from there to here she left that place, she came the long way home chorus ON ANY GIVEN DAY A woman sits down to the mirror taking in the light and the lines on the face looking back at her on any given day a man bends down to touch the earth fills his fists with the colored clay and he wonders what his life is worth on any given day and they lie down together at night certain of morning light they lie down together at night certain of morning light there's a feeling that all is well and usually some moment of clarity when all our fears are still on any given day but sometimes it's hard to find between the longings of the heart and the soul and the restless mind on any given day still we lie down together at night certain of morning light we lie down together at night certain of morning light I take comfort in song threading thoughts together I play and I try to keep the rhythm strong on any given day you, your hands are always full with the fruits of your labor they are strong with the push and pull on any given day and we lie down together at night certain of morning light we lie down together at night certain of morning light HUNGER In the trees there are questions if you listen hidden for safe-keeping in the leaves thriving like children they beckon our senses in the trees there are questions if you listen in the trees there are answers between the branches clinging to the main stem waiting they ripen like plump fruits, safe for the picking in the trees there are answers between the branches when the hunger comes it will come for you when the hunger comes reach up and take what you need in the trees there are questions if you listen they are bound in tightly with the roots all tied up and tethered they beckon our senses in the trees there are questions if you listen when the hunger comes It will come for you when the hunger comes reach up and take what you need SHIFTING SHADOWS Deep red and falling leaves on the ground in the distance bare trees all around when the wind stops I still hear the sound of a good love wanting to be found Blue and running a river to the sea no resistance just a longing to be free brings redemption brings me to my knees in the twilight washes over me the light is changing shifting shadows disappear the light is changing another day draws near green and growing seeds will be sown the tiny tendrils make themselves known digging deeper roots will cling to bone taking hold and standing on my own the light is changing shifting shadows disappear the light is changing another day draws near the light is changing shifting shadows disappear the light is changing another day draws near another day draws near another day draws near TANGLED HEARTS I, I was just wondering to myself how, how all those tangled hearts beat together unfettered what keeps them from breaking against each other in the dark what keeps them from breaking against each other in the dark, in the dark I, I was just wondering out loud how, how all those tangled hearts keep the rhythm from faltering what keeps them from breaking into each other in the dark what keeps them from breaking into each other in the darkm in the dark I, I was just wondering to myself how, how all those tangled hearts keep the rhythm from faltering THE TRUTH I usually don't believe in disregarding the truth in other words, I'm not a fruitful liar but I find myself now, contemplating a secret moving away from the heat of the fire I always thought it would be you..... Will you sense my mystery will you see it in my movements that  I have laid down and slept in his bed Can I hide my deception a careful camouflage for now let time make history or turn to face you instead 'Cause I always thought it would be you if one of us should fall as people do I had no doubts oh it would be you I always thought it would be you I always thought it would be you You've been a good friend to me don't know why I've let you down I have broken the trust we held between us in this life, when we choose to sacrifice an honest love is there anyone out there who will redeem us 'Cause I always thought it would be you if one of us should fall as people do I had no doubts oh it would be you I always thought it would be you I always thought it would be you I always thought it would be you CHAMELEON Chameleon who's colors will you become chameleon, who's troubles will you leave undone when you turn from green to gold when you leave without a word Chameleon what story will you tell today chameleon, what demons will you keep at bay when you turn from gold to green when you slip away unseen When your colors start to fade will we see what you're made of Chameleon how will you make amends chameleon, how does the mystery end when you change your shade again when you don't know where you've been Chameleon where do you sleep at night
