Track Name: Our Love
I feel like a star
I feel like a dove
I feel like the sun
When I’m with him

He is like a song
He is like a book
He is like the world
I think this is love

Love comes in many shapes I know
Some love stays and some love goes
I’ve seen love age before it’s old
Our love is the kind that grows and grows

I was like a match
I was like a seed
I was like the dusk
Before he loved me

Love comes in many shapes I know
Some love stays and some love goes
I’ve seen love age before it’s old
Our love is the kind that grows and grows and grows

On and on and on from now
I’ll give my love as I know how
On and on and on from now
I’ll be your love, you’ll be my all

Love comes in many shapes I know
Some love stays and some love goes
I’ve seen love age before it’s old
Our love is the kind that grows and grows and grows
Track Name: Let Me Try
I had a dream
That you were lost at sea
Then it came to me
I want to be your sail in that breeze

There’s a lot that I’m not
I can be all you’ll want
If you let me try
Let me try

Clear as the blue
Of the sea that held you
You belong with me
I want to be your raft on that sea

There’s a lot that I’m not
I can be all you’ll want
If you let me try
Let me try

The waves keep pushing you away
These dreams keep coming every day
I need you more with every wave

There’s a lot that I’m not
I can be all you’ll want
If you let me try
Let me try
Track Name: Just Be a Man
Don’t feel sorry for me
I’ve got more than I need
Calm down, just calm down

If you mean what you say
Then a storm is on its way
Hold on, just hold on

Ocean swells
From the center of the earth I felt
Every stone and every storm that brews
It drags me right back to you

If you take all that’s left
All you’ll leave is a mess
Take it go on and take it

Or you could just be a man
Or you could just be a man
Or you could just be a man

Ocean swells
From the center of the earth I felt
Every stone and every storm that brews
It drags me right back to you

You took my hand
Said you’d lead me to dry land
But you don’t know
You don’t know the way
Track Name: Wind
I haven’t said a word for a year
I closed my eyes and shut my mouth. I tried not to hear
What was coming
What was coming

Sometimes I wish that I were the wind instead of the tree
I would float about the earth and the sea
Sometimes it seems I’m so rooted and rotten and barren of leaves
I’ll quiver at the touch of a slight breeze

I haven’t left my home for a year
I locked my door and sat right down. I tried not to fear
What was creeping
What was creeping

Sometimes I wish that I were the wind instead of the tree
I would float about the earth and the sea
Sometimes it seems I’m so rooted and rotten and barren of leaves
I’ll quiver at the touch of a slight breeze

I’ve been waiting for the clouds to part
I’ve been waiting for this broken heart to mend
I’ve been waiting for an apology
I’ve been waiting for this great symphony to end

Sometimes I wish that I were the wind instead of the tree
I would float about the earth and the sea
Sometimes it seems I’m so rooted and rotten and barren of leaves
I’ll quiver at the touch of a slight breeze
Track Name: Graceful
I cannot carry this load
I cannot do this on my own
All the time

For my size I think I’m pretty strong
But it’s my heart that soldiers my mind on
All the time

When I die, I hope it’s graceful
In the night like my mothers mother went
Allelujah, allelujah, allelujah

I don’t know where to find it in my heart
Forgiveness is difficult in short
All the time

When I die, I hope it’s graceful
In the night like my mothers mother went
Allelujah, allelujah, allelujah

Come with me that night while I’m leaving
And I will stay with you
Hold me in that night while I’m moving
And I will follow you

I will not hold anger in my life
Because if I do, I’ll bury myself alive
All the time
Track Name: Truth
Truth broke in, in the night
He stole my watch, my drapes and my knife
Now I wake unarmed in broad daylight

Truth is quiet, constant and keen
He could be in a room and remain unseen to the
Hopeful eye, he looks a lot like a lie

Truth cannot leave after truth has appeared
He’ll live by your side and he’ll stay through the years
One question remains everyday that I live
Is it better or worse to know truth for what he is, for what he is?

Truth doesn’t mean to take what’s yours
He’s really quite honest and he often abhors all the untruths told to hold him behind closed doors

Truth cannot leave after truth has appeared
He’ll live by your side and he’ll stay through the years
One question remains everyday that I live
Is it better or worse to know truth for what it is, for what it is?

Truth broke in, in the night
Track Name: I've Never Seen
I am the fire, self-combustion from my soul
I am the fuel, concrete walls confine, control
But I'll grow until I burn a hole

Hey, hey, I’m gonna get out
Hey, hey, I’m gonna win
Hey, hey, I’m gonna burn it down like
I’ve never seen

I am the coal, broke, lit and moving me
I am the torch that’s bringing light to all I’ve been
But I’ll grow until I make a hole

Hey, hey, I’m gonna get out
Hey, hey, I’m gonna win
Hey, hey, I’m gonna burn it down like
I’ve never seen

I can see a light coming through the ceiling
I can see a star swinging in the sky
I can see a crack and so I get that feeling
That I could be the sun brighter than the star

Hey, hey, I’m gonna get out
Hey, hey, I’m gonna win
Hey, hey, I’m gonna burn it down like
I’ve never seen
Track Name: Beautiful
Broken down with the lies
A broken heart that hopes to die
Time cannot heal this wound
My God can, just make some room

River wide, deep and true
Take this pain and wash renew
Hold this heart and make it whole
My God can make this beautiful

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go
My God can make this beautiful

Feel the wind and feel the warmth
Let it hold you in the dark
You cannot find your peace
My God can, just take, release

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go
My God can make this beautiful

Time is now to let it go
Time is now to let it go
Time is now to let it go
Let it go let it go
Track Name: Rebuild
Take away the shelter that I work hard to mind
Take away the lessons that I’ve learned over time

Rebuild it all again
Replant my hope and then
Reap all the flowers I can
I will rebuild

Take away the corners where I store my dreams
Take away the structure to bring me to my knees
Take away my pride, take away my family
Take away my peace like Job I shall believe

Rebuild it all again
Replant my hope and then
Reap all the flowers I can
I will rebuild

I will sing such songs that bring me
New beginnings and all the while I’ll
Shed my skin to find beneath two
Brilliant wings

Rebuild it all again
Replant my hope and then
Reap all the flowers I can
I will rebuild
Track Name: At a Loss for Words
I’m at a loss for words
When I hear you say
That it’s not your fault
That you’re not to blame

My love runs deep as love should do
But you’ve let me down without meaning to

I’m at a loss for words
I sing a silent song
When there’s nothing left
When everything feels wrong

My love runs deep as love should do
But you’ve let me down without meaning to

I’m at a loss for words
When you won’t own up
Watch it all break down
Then watch it all erupt

My love runs deep as love should do
But you’ve let me down without meaning to
Then I let you down without meaning to
