Track Name: Thirsty Hearts
How far to reach
For our dreams
Thirsty hearts
Battling the fears, tearing us apart
Where did we find
All these reasons to hide
From the passions we hold
Petty distractions
Making fools of us all

And I'm left wondering
Why keep dreaming to live
Instead of living our dreams
And a life that we love
Who's to stop us
Baring our hearts out
Risk it all
On life that we love

And they may doubt us
When we lose our way
But we made it this far
Rising up, from every mistake

And I know, it's not always easy
But here we are, here we are
And the time, comes so quickly
As we wait for the perfect start
Hoping to feel so much more

And it's left me wondering
Why keep dreaming to live
Instead of living our dreams
For a life that we love
Who's to stop us
Bearing our hearts out
Risk it all
On a life that we love
Brothers and sisters
Why keep dreaming to live
Track Name: Bare Bones
You don't need a reason to shine
Because I've been seeing your light all this time
Simplify our lives until all we need
Is our hands and the sand between our feet
Sink down to our knees
Until all that's on our mind is the breeze
And all we feel is free

How hard is it really to see
Who we are here to be
When you strip down to your bare bones to feel
What's real

So easy to feeling compelled to fill that space
Join the frenetic pace
Get so bound up you feel like you going to break
When all we're really searching for is some faith
That we'll be here another day
The lessons and blessings of right here and now

How hard is it really to see
Who we are here to be
When you strip down to your bare bones to feel
What's real
So we go on
And we'll bleed
To the beat of our own drum
So we'll go on
And we'll live
To the beat of our own drum
To the beat of our own drum
Track Name: These Crazy Days
These Crazy Days
Feel so tired, I don't know where to go
Feeling this system
From my head down to my toes

See all these people
What started with dreams and hopes
Choose expectations
Instead of what's in their soul

Where do we go
When were not home
Lord it's not easy
When it all feels out of control
When it all feels out of control

Oooh
Oooh
Oooh
Oooh

Living or dying time's on it's way
So we try to reach out for more
Stretch it out or find some play
Before hitting the floor

Where do we go
When were are not home
Lord it's not easy
When it all feels out of control
When it all feels out of control

Oooh
Oooh
Oooh
Oooh

And I know that there's something else
Past these endless mistakes that we make
So I reach out for the light
That's illuminating this pain
That's illuminating this pain

Where do we go
Where do we go
Where do we go
Where do we go

Ooh
Ooh
Track Name: Crossroads
I look back on all these years
And the people and place among them
All the things that brought me to tears
And the joys that never seem to end in my mind
I'm left with all these pieces
Of a life ever changing with the tide
Been around the world enough he says
To know this puzzle is something brought together inside

Crossroads
Crossroads

I feel my life unfolding
Hours turn into days
Days turn into lessons
And I don't know where we're going
But as time keeps turning I'm looking for a message
Of love, kindness, and gratitude in a world so divided by our fears
I know there's much to learn in solitude
Can we have the courage to come together while were all still here

Crossroads
Standing at the
Crossroads
Our lives at the
Crossroads

So easy to find our judgments
Of those who do as we have done
And I know we all are different
But our lows and triumphs all come under the same sun
So I'll walk a mile in your shoes
You can have a laugh and try my socks
Still so much to learn through and through
How to keep reach out and when to stop

We keep on finding pieces
When all we need is to find peace
We keep on burning bridges
How many do we burn 'til we feel free
How many do we burn 'til we are free
Ooh

Because were standing at the
Crossroads
Living at the
Crossroads
Always at the
Crossroads
It ain't easy at the
Crossroads
Track Name: Burst Like A Bubble
I get stuck sometimes
I don't know why
All these thoughts in my mind
Struggle to be realized

So I'll try to break free
Of these silly games
But to even try
I need to embrace these changes

And I know you tried
To be the way
I held you in my mind
but it's not the same
As just finding that place where you feel alive
Just want to feel alive
Just want to feel alive today

Ooooh

There are sometimes
These dreams just seem to burst like a bubble
Struggle to steady our feet and
Keep believing
There are sometimes
These dreams just seem to burst like a bubble
But with a little grace
There might just be another day

Ooooh

So I hurt someone
Then I hurt myself
Now I try to turn
To something else
I wake up some days
Just to breathe
Try to find some way
To feel free

So I'll hold my head
Up today
And I promise to learn from my mistakes
And I need you to know
That I want us each to be
Better versions of ourselves
Together or separately

There are sometimes
These dreams just seem to burst like a bubble
Struggle to steady our feet and
Keep believing

There are sometimes
These dreams just seem to burst like a bubble
But with a little grace
There might just be

And if I could be
Someone else I would call you up and
If you were free
We'd garage sale all of this useless stuff we own and
Let that take us away
To a place unheard of and unexplored
But I don't need this deferred
To have adored you
To have adored you

Burst like a bubble
Burst like a bubble
Burst like a bubble
Track Name: Break Free
These days keep passing
And I try to hold onto my sanity though
All these things distracting me
I lose track of what keeps motivating me
So I look for the answers
In the folds of my bed sheets
I keep battling these invisible chains
That seem to keep holding me

And I'm so tired
Of these old fears
That I know so well
And I'm trying to find
Where my heart
Can grow
So let it be today
Break free today
All we have is today
So lets live today

I sometimes feel these oceans
Of the past and the future surrounding me though
I'm still in motion
Thoughts of time and the outcomes are paralyzing me
So I look to the inside
Pulling out all this purposeless despair
I want to fuel all the fire in my soul
And fix the things that need repair


And I'm so tired
Of these old fears
That I know so well
And I'm trying to find
Where my heart
Can grow
So let it be today
Break free today
All we have is today
So let's live today

Oooh
Oooh
Oooh
Oooh
Oooh
Oooh
Track Name: For Love
Here we go again
The light of love
Warming our souls my friend
Just when I thought
How much more can this old heart take
So much more for it to say

What to see
When it's just a reflection of what we believe
And who to be
When from dust to dust we breath we bleed

So we'll wait
Spending time on our distractions
Hoping our dreams
Will take their place
Hide away
From all those expectations
Instead of letting that light from the inside
Guide our way

Who to be
When from dust to dust we breathe we bleed
And what to see
When it's just a reflection of what we believe

Instead of fight
It's time for our souls to ignite
Break down this divide
That holds our hearts apart
Now it's time
To set those fears aside
Come together and rise up
And rise up
For love
Oooh
For love
And rise up
For love
For love
Track Name: Warmer World
Warmer world
Humid days
Stare off into that misty space
Break my gaze
From all this technology
Remember what it means to be free

And the heralds of time
Will find us
Through the beautiful tragedies of our ways
While the monsters we made
Will bind us
Directing the passions pumping through our veins

In a warmer world
In a warmer world
Ooh
Ooh

And I feel the pulse of our hunger
Filling the void of our desires
The old world burns a little longer
Rising steam from the fire

And the heralds of time
Will find us
Through the tragic symphonies of our age
While the monsters we made
Smolder sweetly
Through whatever fate we choose to shape

In a warmer world
In a warmer world
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
