about

During my brief stay in Tulsa, Oklahoma, I had a monthly show at the Saffron Coffeehouse. It was one of my most favorite places there. I was gathering my footing as a solo artist and exploring a new life with Captain. I missed the West Coast terribly.
Thankful to Adam for making this recording on that old Mini-Disc player and pushing me to keep going forward in my music

Track Name: Happy Song
happy ~ Fae Wiedenhoeft 25 april 2003 dadf#ad capo3


i wanna sing a happy song
cause livin' with you has certainly brought me down
i wanna sing a happy song
cause my two pink lips always end up in a frown
i wanna sing a happy song
cause my dreams never came alive what i wanted to do
i wanna sing a happy song
to forget about you

i wanna sing a happy song
cause the world's gone crazy and i don't know what to do
i wanna sing a happy song
cause innocent people are certainly starting to drown
i wanna sing a happy song
we never learn from history, we still continue on this way
i wanna sing a happy song
and live in a better day

i wanna sing a happy song
cause my soufflé fell and my pie never came out right
i wanna sing a happy song
cause my best girlfriends always end up in a fight
i wanna sing a happy song
cause my hips get bigger as my eyes turn into dust
i wanna sing a happy song
and stop all this fuss
Track Name: In My Time
in my time ~ fae Wiedenhoeft - february 2002 ~ dadgad capo 5

a million thoughts race through my head
so fast I can't remember
where the one thought ends and the other begins
is this genius or a time to surrender
it’s time to start traveling again

we take the path that is the one less taken
to find the pot of gold at the rainbow’s end
all the trials and tribulations
surly show who are your friends
and I’m wondering when

so I break the rules and I stay a little longer
hoping that my world will keep growing stronger
it’s up to me
my dreams are free
in my time

don’t need no cards nor dice
I don’t believe in fallacy
see I believe that the universe has
something greater waiting here for me
and times get tough I fall down on my knees and I cry
still I’m wondering why

that I break the rules and I stay a little longer
hoping that my world will keep growing stronger
it’s up to me
my dreams are free
in my time
in my time

and I see and I see my dreams
I don’t know, I don’t know what they always mean
and I see and I see so many dreams that don’t belong to me

and I see and I see my dreams
I don’t know, I don’t know what they always mean
and I see and I see so many dreams set sail on
a crystal blue sea
as I’m dreaming of my reality
as I’m making my own way in my own time
Track Name: Story
story ~ fae Wiedenhoeft - july 2005 ~ dadf#ad

tell me a story the one where you were young
in the old house
when cold wooden floors would creak under sleepy toes
at daybreak
morning fingers through lacy curtains
the ones that Nana made in 1939
to ease her mind from worrying about the future
of running out of money and time

see the dusty rays of history rise
like the smoke rings from granddad's pipe
the sweet smell of honey and black currant tea
and the rumble of the milkman

you can't go back to the places where you began
climbing trees, castles of sand
you can't go back to the places where you began

I'll tell you a story the one where i was young
in the old house
with pictures in frames yellowed with the years
and the smile of that Cheshire cat
Christmas snows that gathered on the ledge
and the river fully frozen
shadow games from the fires in the hearth
and the smell of fresh baked cookies

see the dusty rays of history rise
like your exhales in winter
when snow-days and summer seemed to last for a year
and i never thought I'd grow old

you can't go back to the places where you began
climbing trees castles of sand
you can't go back to the places where you began
you can never return

so what is your story?
Do you hold it near your heart
or do you hide like me
Track Name: West Coast Morning
West Coast Morning Fae Wiedenhoeft
~ 4 march 2004 dadgbd

the island sleeps with half moon smiles
as i walk through the turn stiles of life
another day begins

the drops dance in the streets
as we walk hand in hand unleashing poetry
smoke rings to the sea

just another west coast morning
has begin
just another west coast morning
has begin
fun without the sun

the trees sway like we
danced in the warm summer rays
do you remember those days?

the wind whispers through the trees
like the whispers you once whispered to me
oh, those little day dreams

just another west coast morning
has begin
just another west coast morning
has begin
fun without the sun

it's down to Bastien square for
tea with you and conversation too
we'll watch the fog roll in

the ferry scuttles by as
seagulls fly their wings against the blue
it's nice to have this time with you

just another west coast morning
has begin
just another west coast morning
has begin
fun without the sun
