Track Name: Here I Am
The river flows,
my feet washed clean again.
Letting go,
of the weight of what was said.
We keep reaching,
wanting to believe,
In something greater,
beyond the last reprieve.

Open doors,
roads of sunbaked dust.
Wooden floors,
kissed by time and all who've crossed.
We keep reaching,
wanting to believe.
In something bolder,
beyond the last reprieve.

And father time and mother nature will take their course,
While the children drink deeply,
from whatever well they choose as their source.

Here I am..
What was felt,
is so much more than what was said.

Here I am..
Moving forward,
while retracing where we've been.

What if there's more here.
There could be more here.
There's something more here.
There's so much more here.
Track Name: Into Dreams
Eyes open wide,
Deep into broad day light.
So hard to realize,
what I need to set my heart right.

And I hope there's still a way,
through the smoke and mirrors and
endless mistakes.
But it's getting to know when I'm still awake,
as I keep falling...

Into dreams..
Into dreams..

I keep breathing,
as I feel my memories blending.
With what's real and believing,
as I know my life is slipping..

Into dreams..
Into dreams..

I fly,
through my notions of time and space..
While everywhere I go,
I find your face..

We fly,
through our notions of time and space..
While everywhere we go,
we swim in the oceans of our fate..

My patience wanes,
as I keep running from all this pain.
But there's no one left to blame,
as I keep falling..
Track Name: Sugar Baby
So I saw you standing across the room.
Didn't take to long to see a conversation bloom.
Did all those little things to see a fire made.
But darling that's when you made your first mistake.

You seem to like what I've done and said,
but it's pretty clear that I'm over your head.

Sugar baby,
like the way you move.

Sugarbaby,
Where could you take me too.

And I don't have a clue,
how to keep resisting you.
And I just want to crawl deep into your arms, arms, arms..
but darlin' that's when this could all just fall apart.

You seem to like both my light and darkness.
Getting hard to know what to bolster my heart with.

Sugar baby,
like the way you move,

Sugar baby,
where could you take me to.

I don't know if I can put up a fight,
getting hard to know what is wrong from what's right.

Sugar baby,
like the way you move.

Sugar baby,
where could you take me to.
Track Name: For The Rest Of My Days
I fight this reluctance,
to put this down.
If I could know there's a difference,
I might just turn this around.

But I wake up some mornings,
trying to face the day.
But that's not good enough reason,
to turn it all away.

And I saw you smiling
you think it's all a phase but baby,
I'm gonna face this for the rest of my days,
I'm gonna face this for the rest of my days.

Well I just need a moment,
to collect my thoughts.
Only so many places,
where time can stop.
But my mind keeps running
heading on its way.
Skipping like a heartbeat,
trying to float instead of break.

But I caught you laughing,
you think it's all gonna change but baby,
I'm gonna fight this for the rest of my days,
I'm gonna fight this for the rest of my days.

You think it's done,
but it's only begun.
How far do we need to fall to see,
how far we've come.

This isn't just some easy ride to paradise.
Trying to keep our heads above the water,
so you better find what keeps you swimmin'

And I saw you wondering,
If it's all going to be exchanged but baby,
I'm gonna face this for the rest of my days,
I'm gonna fight this for the rest of my days,
I'm gonna feel this for the rest of my days, oooh,
I'm gonna love this for the rest of my days.
Track Name: Coming Home
Simply said,
I thought you were somewhere else.
Lost in the wildness of my youth,
in the stillness of a dreamers spell.

All these friendly faces,
of those who have kept my soul warm,
blend together,
offer shelter through life's storms.

We built this ship,
set the sails.
And all we need,
is only more of what we've always been.

Coming home.
Coming home.

Life moves so quickly,
these numbered endlessly,
becoming memories.
As I try to slow down my mind.

But through the darkness,
there's a stillness,
as I see your embers,
glowing through the night.

So our lives flow on.
Until our time is gone.
When will we decide,

That we're coming home.
Coming home.

Coming home.
Coming home.
Coming home, hooome.

Coming home.
Track Name: Fickle Paradise
Head breaks clear,
for a day.
Stare around at all these perfect houses,
straight rows and gardens.
Pretty pennies for all the waste.

Every whim,
every desire at our finger tips,
just work hard for that smile,
you might just get what your aching heart desires.

Living in a,
Fickle paradise.
It'll find a price for your every comfort.

And there's so many left outside,
but we don't do much more than close our eyes.

Here we are in this dream,
one we're born into,
but we follow through, raise a burning branch at those we call our friends.

And it makes me want to scream,
for justice, for the soul of life,
enthralled with a system,
that leaves so many of us more dead inside than alive.

But these bitter fruits we reap,
still tastes sweet enough,
for more, for more.

And what we don't know,
doesn't seem to hurt us much,
when we find it in every store,
what's in store.

Living in a fickle paradise,
it'll take a hammer to your insecurities.
And there's so much left outside,
but we don't do much more than close our eyes.

Living in a fickle paradise,
it'll find a price for your every comfort.
And there's so many left outside,
but we don't do much more than
close our eyes.
Track Name: Letting It Go
I'm trying to move forward,
any way that I can.
And I want to love you,
everyday I want more.

This games we keep playing,
they ache in my bones.
If I only knew,
how to find what you stole.

And the time, the time holds me tight
you say,
Letting it go.
Letting it go.

And I need, I need a way through the night, you say it,

Letting it go.
Letting it go.

All these things we said,
only mean what you do.
If I only knew,
how to break through.

And the time, the time,
holds me tight,
you say,
Letting it go.
Letting it go.

And I need, I need,
a way through the night.
you say it,
Letting it go,
Letting it go.

And our love, our love's
been on my mind,
but I'm,
Letting it go (x4)

Oooh (x3)

Letting it go.
Letting it go.
Track Name: Shine Through The Dark
Morning breaks,
as I find what it takes,
to let this all go.

So I stayed,
watching as my pride washes away for you.
Away for you.

Seasons turn,
as memories melt into what wasn't heard.
I try on different coats,
I'm told that they'll bring me in from the cold,
None fit like yours.
Noo none, fit like yours.

We'll find a way to shine through.. the dark.

So show me who you are.
From our first breath to our last,
it's never too late to start.
what are we waiting for..

Time to shine through the dark.
Time to shine through the dark.

Ooooh (x9)
