Come sit let's start a game It's so fun to play Broken Telephone Moving our lips and mouth But what's coming out is so foreign And as we start to speak Whispering the beat of the dial tone Try to connect the line Ringing one more time but nobody's home Now your ears are facing My eyes are glazing staring into the dark Why is this so slow, what is it's colour? Guess we just missed the mark Silence is golden Yes I am holding anticipating your word Shouldn't be flattered Your jibber jabber just marks a lonely soul Let us shout it out Hello operator please give me number 9 And if you should disconnect me leave your ego behind Under the yellow curtain there stands a shard of glass Take a look at your reflection can't you see at last? Please ask me your questions Don't tell me your lies Can't you hear me screaming it's mine this time?

Don't fall in love Turns a sinner to a stone The hollow woman, the tritest song 'Cause when I go away You won't know I'm gone Don't fall in love Turns a sinner to a stone How did we get here, down this dark road Made you feel special, made you feel old 'Cause when you find that dead end None do but fold No more a gentle, gracious soul Now I tried to warn him 'bout these dark days But we had it buried, we had it made So he took a shot, but he missed the gate And so our stalemate, it radiates

Wolf 04:02
I'd believe it if I were anyone but me You burned all the evidence, witness testimony There's an ember that's ablaze And it palpitates in doubt There's no wolf in the bushes No witch at your door The ones that'll getcha are already close 'Cause at the heart of the hopeless is a yearning for control And a rage that burns "We'd believe it if it were anyone but you You wandered after dark, where's your scientific proof" But the woods are on fire and that smoke won't turn to steam She never cried wolf, she did not lie The silent skies rained down overnight While you have every alibi You have no need for shame For shame In the eye of the storm there's a knock on your door She wipes off her shoes You drink up every drop of truth 'Cause at the heart of the hopeful is a yearning for control And a rage that burns

I was once so small like you I felt every surface Heard your blood flowing through your veins Tracing your sweet smile lines Aren't we selfish? I was once so small like you I believed in love Waiting for our future to pass Dwelling in the depths of a canyon Are we hopeless? It's all the same in your stomach Don't you know it's in your head In the end it's all darkness

The Wharf 03:58
Skin exposed on sun warmed oak Collar bones and resin Wade in the grass and the muddy deep The blades punctured your feet Eardrums hum in the afternoon Brine and salty sting Open cuts and weathered scars need careful bandaging Well the view from the wharf is mighty high 'Till you set your feet on fire Love's regret and the waves abet And the coastline drowns beneath Dip your toes in before you dive Mind the level of the tide Surely, slowly boy Don't you trust this masquerade Her shiny crests won't hold you dear You won't fly You'll swim upstream And crash into the sea

We would like to thank everyone who played and worked on the record, especially to John who patiently recorded, mixed, and mastered The Wharf, and who kept us full of tea and maple syrup. Thank you to John’s family who welcomed us into their home, especially Oliver who taught us about deadly rocks. We would like also like to thank our friends, family, and musical communities. Leah would like to thank Karen Mueller, the John C. Campbell Folk School, Seattle Autoharp Week, and her Thursday night old time pals. Corinna would like to thank Deborah Kraus and Chesley Walsh. Thank you to Gern F. for teaching us (almost) everything there is to know about the autoharp and for being a constant source of support and excellent advice. Thank you to all of our friends and fans who came out to our shows in the coldest February on record and who encouraged us while we arranged most of these tunes on tour. Finally, thank you, as always, to Ali, for bringing us together.

- Corey and Leah
