Eeeeheee!  
Stephanie is now content. Stephanie just spelled her own name wrong and had to go back and correct it.

But... ah. I must report: I have found the first Mint cd. It's dirty and grungy and a little scratched, but it's MINE, dammit. HaHA! I love Borders. I didn't know they carried local music, but they do. And they had one nasty, old copy left of Mint numero uno. So I bought it.

And now

I want to hold you
But every time I look at you, I understand you’re far too flawless for my hands.
Can’t help but want you
Can’t help but feel a shiver when your shining eyes part from the stars to meet with mine.
And all the time I’ve watched,
And all the time I’ve felt my insecurities just waiting there to conquer me.
But all the time she's stayed,
And all the time she's waited here so quietly as though she watches over me.

And all I can do is stand and stare
When I see my angel standing there.
They say that all angels fly, but I’m sure that it’s a lie, ‘cause my angel’s here right now with me.

And all the nights are taken
And all the echoes wander to my ears and back again, not knowing why, or where they’ve been.
I try to understand you
The way you wrap yourself in beauty, grace, and mystery, and set them down to be with me.
And when the walls around me break,
And when the angry sea comes crashing in to drown my dreams and tear my heart out from the seams.
All she has to do is say
That it’ll be alright, and everything works out for good, as though she always knew it would.

And all I can do is stand and stare
When I see my angel standing there.
They say that all angels fly, but I’m sure that it’s a lie, ‘cause my angel’s here right now with me.

And any time is every time,
They’re all the same when I’m in your arms.
I think right now it’s safe to say I have the better view

‘Cause all I can do is stand and stare
When I see my angel standing there.
They say that all angels fly, but I’m sure that it’s a lie, ‘cause my angel’s here right now with me.

And all the world is dancing, just like we are dancing.
All the sky is watching, the sun and moon are watching.
The stars will dance around us, but I can’t see anything but you.



It's very pretty. And I actually found the lyrics on a rather large online lyric collection. Will Mint go national someday? I could only hope. That would be SO cool. And "Not All Angels Fly" is a really good to go national with, should that ever happen. I saw them in concert (but only once... I've had plenty of other opportunities to go, I just never went). It was good. It was hot and sticky, but that's the way a concert should be. It was fun. Amy and I were friends and it was fun.

The only problem is that he's got a super quiet voice.

They're from round these parts, believe it or not. ^^ Happily for us, anyway... When I saw them they were playing at Brady's.

They sometimes get played on 88.9 and, like I said, Border's has a little local music niche over by the classical. They had an abundance of their second cd when I was there. (today... uh... yeah)
