Track Name: Thirsty Hearts
How far to reach,
For our dreams?
Thirsty hearts,
Battling the fears, tearing us apart.

Where did we find,
So many reasons to hide?
From the passion we hold,
Making fools of us all.

And it's left me wondering,
Why keep dreaming to live,
Instead of living our dreams,
And a life that we love.

Who's to stop us,
From baring our hearts out,
Risk it all,
For a life that we love.

And they may doubt us,
When we lose our way,
But we've 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,
While we wait for the perfect start.
Hope to feel so much more..

and it's left me wondering,
Why keep dreaming to live,
Instead of living our dreams,
And a life that we love..

Who's to stop us,
from bearing our hearts out,
Risk it all,
For 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: 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.
So 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 I'm 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,
but 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 feel stuck sometimes.
I don't know why.
All these thoughts in my mind,
Struggle to be realized.

So I 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 find that place where you feel alive,
Just want to feel alive.
Just want to feel alive today.

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.

So I hurt someone,
and 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: These Crazy Days
These Crazy Days,
Feel so tired, I don't know where to go.
Feeling this system,
Running from my head down to my toes.

Watch all these people,
What started with dreams and hopes.
Choose expectations,
Instead of whats 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 (x4)

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 (x4)

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
Track Name: Break Free
These days keep passing,
and I try to hold onto my sanity, though,
All these things are distracting me,
I lose track of what keeps motivating me.

So I look to the inside,
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 let's live today.

I sometime 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.

Ooh x6
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 only a reflection of what we believe.

oooh..

Instead of fight,
it's time for our souls to ignite.
Break down this divide,
that hold 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.

I feel the pulse of our hunger,
as try to fill 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.

Oooh.
