Song 25: Still Leaving the Porch Light On

The pitter patter of the rain on a window
Like footsteps on a walk
Reminds me that you are far
As I wait for your knock

The rhythmic brushing of the apple tree branches
Outside the bedroom wall
Sounds just like your breath
Coming down the hall

I'm still leaving the porch light on
From nightfall until dawn
Gazing out on the morning dew
For any sign of you

The quiet moaning of the floor as I'm pacing
Echoes my heart's cry
How could you leave me here
Without saying goodbye

Song 24: Secret Society Stomp

Why don't we start a secret society
Me and you, smokey room
Just for two
Making notoriety

Bring our your old candles and fancy robe
We began holding hands
Making plans and demands
For to sneakily subvert the globe

Don't want to share my love with all the proles
We'll raise degrees behind lock and key
And no one will ever know

If you want to join a new order for the times
Covertly, you and me
Solemnly
Doing dirty little crimes
