Here I Am 04:49
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 sun baked dust Wooden floors Kissed by time and all who crossed But those creaky boardwalks Seem to sing in tune To something greater Than this moments bloom 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

Into Dreams 04:50
Eyes open wide Deep into broad daylight Try to recognize 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 hard 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 we keep running from all this pain But there's no one left to blame As we keep falling

Sugar Baby 04:43
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 Sugar baby Where could you take me to 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

Well I fight this reluctance To put this down If I could know there's a difference 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 going to be replaced 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 Struggle to keep our heads above the water So you better find what keeps you swimming And I saw you wondering If it's all going to be exchanged but baby I'm gonna fight this for the rest of my days I'm gonna face 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

Coming Home 06:04
Simply said I thought you were somewhere else Lost in the wildness of my youth In the stillness of a dreamer's spell All those 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
6.
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 So we'll follow through, wave a burning branch at those we called 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 taste 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
7.
I'm trying to move forward Any way that I can And I want to love you Everyday I want more These 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 Letting it go Letting it go Letting it go Oooh Oooh Oooh Letting it go Letting it go
8.
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 No 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)
