Track Name: Oh, Earthbound Love (The Morning Farm Theme)
Through the tunnels
Underground
Creatures burrow
And seeds are found

Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Earthbound love

Common oats grow
In the field
Farmers celebrate
The season’s yield

Nourishment for
Human beings
Renews the people
With energy

Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Earthbound love

World of cycles
Keep moving on
All creations have
Dusk and dawn

But love can bring
A weather change
Until the matter
Gets rearranged

Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Earthbound love

Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Earthbound love

Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Oh oh, uh-uh oh, oh
Earthbound love
Track Name: She's Perfect (Beckie's Morning Theme)
She wakes up with a frown
Burdened by this world that's cutting her down
All she wants to feel is proud
But expectations keep
Her from getting out
Of this prison that she's made
Thinks she has got to make
Herself perfect
If she could see what I see
I know she'd be free
And she'd feel worth it

But he won't do nothing but shout
And curse at her and keep
Pushing her around
She's scared one day he will walk out
And tries to change herself
To keep him around
But she'll never please
A man who doesn't see
That she's perfect
If she could see what I see
I know she'd be free
And she'd feel worth it

No matter what I say she thinks
This is what she deserves
It's how it's supposed to be
I hope one day she'll finally see
It's possible she don't have to
Cry herself to sleep
In this prison that she's made
Thinks she has got to make
Herself perfect
If she could see what I see
I know she'd be free
And she'd feel worth it
Track Name: I Am a Beachcomber (Heather and Xander's Morning Theme)
The sound of the shell, pressed to my ear
The bloodstream rushing inside
The colorful conch awakens my soul
On the beach, before the low tide

While ships are roaming the ocean
While sailors are pursuing their fortunes
I have fallen in love
I am a beachcomber showing my devotion

The crash of the waves, bringing new finds
The flutter of my heart skipping beats
The cluster of clamshells stirs my spirit
By the water, soaking up the sea

While ships are roaming the ocean
While sailors are pursuing their fortunes
I have fallen in love
I am a beachcomber showing my devotion

The voices of those trickling onto the shore
The circulation of suits in the swells
The calcium carbonate is in my safekeeping
Over the dunes, bidding the breakers farewell

While ships are roaming the ocean
While sailors are pursuing their fortunes
I have fallen in love
I am a beachcomber showing my devotion
Track Name: Her Eyes Were Heather Grey (Heather Storms Off Theme)
Wild, warm
Like the unbridled air of a summer storm
She was the one I’d been waiting for
Random talks in the backyard
And her face gleamed

Her eyes were heather grey, and as I saw them she whirled away
Very insistent we could get old before the day
But lost inside a moment, exchanging life stories
We huddled in a treehouse and pattered like the rain
Her eyes were heather grey

Being swept into her world
While we shared our memories
It relieved me to know I could unwind
In the calm of

Her eyes were heather grey, and as I saw them she whirled away
Very insistent we could get old before the day
But lost inside a moment, exchanging life stories
We huddled in a treehouse and pattered like the rain
Her eyes were heather grey

I will always remember those pinwheel shapes
How they opened with irises spinning like hurricanes
When she realized the feelings that we entertained
She stormed off into the rain

Her eyes were heather grey, and as I saw them she whirled away
Very insistent we could get old before the day
But lost inside a moment, exchanging life stories
We huddled in a treehouse and pattered like the rain
Her eyes were heather grey
Her eyes were heather grey
We huddled in a treehouse and pattered like the rain
We huddled in a treehouse and pattered like the rain
Track Name: Overrule the Molecule (Johnny's Theme)
Molecule, minuscule, megajoule
Subdue, subdue
Delusion, diffusion, depression
Overdue, overdue

There are times I cry without a clue
There are times I wish for things that I cannot undo
There are times I cry without a clue
Please overrule the molecule

Transmission, technician, transition
Ensue, ensue
I respool, I retool, I refuel
Pursue, pursue

But there are times I cry without a clue
There are times I wish for things that I cannot undo
There are times I cry without a clue
Please overrule the molecule

When my regimen of medicine is lacking
The lower dose can’t keep my mind from cracking

Please overrule the molecule

There are times I cry without a clue
There are times I wish for things that I cannot undo
There are times I cry without a clue
Please overrule the molecule
Please overrule the molecule
Please overrule the molecule
Track Name: Two Sides of the Reel (Heather Storms Off Again Theme)
Would you drive the passing lane
Down the interstate of life?
Would you regulate your speed
If the cops were not in sight?

Would you fill her glass to the brim
If drinks calmed down your wife?
Would you impress your peers
With the conquest of the night?

It’s the surface that divides us, two sides of the reel
How you work your own projector decides how you feel
But the surface won’t define us, though it’s all anyone can see
So make your choices wisely, they reflect what you believe

Would you trash the streets
Because pollution’s rife?
Would you collect the litter
Or ignore the planet’s plight?

Would you break agreements
Like a windbag and his pipes?
Would you make a written contract
If a gentleman seems polite?

It’s the surface that divides us, two sides of the reel
How you work your own projector decides how you feel
But the surface won’t define us, though it’s all anyone can see
So make your choices wisely, they reflect what you believe

Would you punish all the people
If you could end the strife?
Would you prosecute the pious
If they were in the right?

It’s the surface that divides us, two sides of the reel
How you work your own projector decides how you feel
But the surface won’t define us, though it’s all anyone can see
So make your choices wisely, they reflect what you believe
Track Name: A World Beyond Electrons (Heather and Xander's Evening Theme)
Every day since you departed
The television show we started
Has been paused on our screen
Where we left off, on episode nineteen

And as I stare at the tube
Feeling remotely removed
From my platinum blonde
There must be a world beyond electrons

You said, “I’ll be right back”
But then went into cardiac

And now I stare at the tube
Feeling remotely removed
From my platinum blonde
There must be a world beyond electrons

Hearing a ghost calling my name
From deep inside the freeze-frame
A voice gives me some hope
And at all at once it’s easier to cope

‘Cause as I stare at the tube
I am no longer removed
From my platinum blond
I know there’s a world beyond

‘Cause as I stare at the tube
I am no longer removed
From my platinum blond
I know there’s a world beyond electrons
I know there’s a world beyond electrons
I know there’s a world beyond electrons
Track Name: Sit Still and Be (Beckie's Evening Theme)
She works hard not to feel bleak
Her beginning is the end of the week
When her son walks in the door
She feels defenseless to the core
‘Cause his stubble makes her mourn
His father’s whiskered cheeks

Every moment of this life is like a tiny seed
You can cultivate the land, you can uproot the weeds
Repose on the seventh day, and watch the earth make way
While the stems spring forth like cherished memories
Sit still and be
Sit still and be

The two relax on the front porch swing
She sips a glass of wine while he comforts her and sings
Beneath reflections of the moon
She hums harmony for the tune
Cause she’s consoled in her cocoon
While her husband has his wings

Every moment of this life is like a tiny seed
You can cultivate the land, you can uproot the weeds
Repose on the seventh day, and watch the earth make way
While the stems spring forth like cherished memories
Sit still and be
Sit still and be

Every moment of this life is like a tiny seed
You can cultivate the land, you can uproot the weeds
Repose on the seventh day, and watch the earth make way
While the stems spring forth like cherished memories
Sit still and be
Sit still and be
Track Name: Oh, What if He Proposes? (The Evening Farm Theme)
Where sleeps the meadowlark
Where flowers bloom in near pitch dark
Where butterflies retire and fireflies light up the lea
Where constellations drift
Where circumstance presents a gift
Oh, the wondrous serendipity

I thought, “Oh, what if he proposes?”
By the evening primroses
In the middle of the night, our love blossomed too
I thought, “Oh, what if he proposes?”
By the evening primroses

Where barnyard owls stir
Where petals every eve recur
Where crickets sing and couples fling through the night
Where dots adorn the atmosphere
Where yellow buds make souvenirs
Oh, the flourishes delight

You thought, “Oh, what if he proposes?”
By the evening primroses
In the middle of the night, our love blossomed too
You thought, “Oh, what if he proposes?”
By the evening primroses

“Oh, what if he proposes?”
“Oh, what if he proposes?”

You thought, “Oh, what if he proposes?”
(“Oh, what if he proposes?”)
By the evening primroses
(By the evening primroses)
In the middle of the night, our love blossomed too
You thought, “Oh, what if he proposes?”
By the evening primroses

You thought, “Oh, what if he proposes?”
(“Oh, what if he proposes?”)
By the evening primroses
(By the evening primroses)
In the middle of the night, our love blossomed too
You thought, “Oh, what if he proposes?”
By the evening primroses
Track Name: Counting Down to Midnight (Spirit's Theme)
I have a red rocket ship night light
I plug into the outlet to dispel my fright
And it’s filled with glitter sparkling bright
So I dream of vivid stars and launching into spaceflight

I’m ready for lift-off
I’m counting down to midnight
I’m all tucked into bed
And I’m clinging on tight
I’m ready for lift-off
And I’m counting down to midnight

I have a red rocket ship night light
I plug into the outlet to dispel my fright
And it’s made of plastic, transparent red and white
So my favorite colors are the last ones in my sight

I’m ready for lift-off
I’m counting down to midnight
I’m all tucked into bed
And I’m clinging on tight
I’m ready for lift-off
And I’m counting down to midnight

I’m ready for lift-off
I’m counting down to midnight
I’m all tucked into bed
And I’m clinging on tight

I’m ready for lift-off
I’m counting down to midnight
I’m all tucked into bed
And I’m clinging on tight
I’m ready for lift-off
And I’m counting down to midnight
And I’m counting down to midnight
And I’m counting down to midnight
And I’m counting down to midnight
