  1. Turning Years

This song was actually inspired by Mary Chapin Carpenter's song "This Shirt". One of my favorites of hers; it tells the story of experiences and memories that are woven in her shirt. She talks about how it should be thrown away, because it's warn but then she can't because of it's memories. So in this song we took the perspective of everything a tree sees in front of a house that a make-believe family has lived in for year. The tree is the narrator and tells a circle of life story involving the children and the parents. The ending is bitter-sweet, but shows the joy and pain of life in this short song. ~ co-write with Lisa Chamberlin

Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call 'The Prestige'.”
