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

Bare Bones 04:27
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

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

Crossroads 06:05
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

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

Break Free 04:16
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

For Love 05:03
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

Warmer World 05:22
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
