Track Name: Confession
Confession

I have said, many words to you
From the red sunset, burning my heart through

If you were to ask my words
What meaning was on their mind
They’d tell you of where I’ve been
Searching for the perfect rhyme and time

(‘cause) I am in love with you and I must confess it
I am in love with you and I must confess it

Someday I’ll say, all I want to say
Burning here, in my heart of clay

There’s no one I know like you
You ask me to show my soul
You’re a mystery everyday
But in your heart I think I’ve found a home

I am in love with you and I must confess it
I am in love with you and I must confess it
I am in love with you
I am in love with you

There’s no one I know like you
I believe in love again
But if I were to show my soul
Would it be another heart-breaking end?

I am in love with you and I must confess it
I am in love with you and I must confess it
I am in love with you
I am in love with you
Track Name: Bring Us Home
Bring Us Home

Something has to happen here
Someone must confront the fear
That we forgot why we first fell in love

The memories are wanderin’ ‘round
Floatin’ heavy, barely off the ground
I watch you walk right through our best of days

Baby it’s alright to be honest
The heart won’t carry stone
Baby we found love, then got lost in it
But maybe love will bring us home
Maybe love will bring us home

Do you recall New Mexico
Walking in that moonlit glow?
Our shadows were last seen holding hands

Do you remember painful days?
The fear was spending all our grace
We cried on the bedroom floor for we were broke

Baby it’s alright to be human
Here we stand together alone
Baby we found love, then got lost in it
But maybe love will bring us home
Baby it’s alright to be honest
The heart won’t carry stone
Baby we found love, then got lost in it
But maybe love will bring us home
Maybe love will bring us home

Love is gonna bring us home
Track Name: Airplane
Airplane

You fly high above the ground
You soar way above the clouds
When you’re in love

You fall from way above the clouds
You dive right into the ground
When you’re heart breaks

Love can be a war on love

I fall like an airplane, on fire
Can I safely land in you?
I sure could use someone, who knows
Me more than I do (Me just like you do)

We drove to Tennessee and back
We rolled the windows down, relaxed
Known you for years

My friend, come meet me in Uptown
My friend, it’d be good to hear the sound
Of your funny laugh

Love shouldn’t be a war on love

I fall like an airplane, on fire
Can I safely land in you?
I caught a bullet, mid-flight
Oh, I could use a friend like you
Track Name: Dance
Dance

Stars look down from the sky
As everybody’s watching the groom and the bride
Their bodies sway to the tune
As the band plays one more song to set the mood

It’s been twenty-seven years
Since the day we started from here
But baby we’re still amateurs
Still learning how to love without the hurt

May I have this dance to forgive the past?

It’s crazy how the kids grow up
The time that’s spent just aint enough
We’ve had our years of on and off
As life gets harder we just get more soft

Come on baby take my hand
Let’s dance to the music while we still can
The band’s playing it’s final tune
Let’s let our bodies sway under this moon

May I have this dance to forgive the past?

May I have this dance to forgive the past?
May I have this dance to forgive?
May I have this dance for the tomorrows we’ll have?
May I have this dance?
Track Name: Settle Into Streams
Settle Into Steams

Sometimes you feel it
Sometimes you don’t
Sometimes I’ll be there
Sometimes I won’t

We’ll try to let it build
Into something beautiful
We’ll try to let it be
Be real

You’re just you and I’m just me
We’re strugglin’ to strum on beat
The music will tangle
The music will settle, into streams
When you’re just you and I’m just me

Always the same
Always a knife
Always a flame
There’s always a sky

We’re gonna let it build
Into something beautiful
We’re gonna let it be
Be right

You’re just you and I’m just me
We’re strugglin’ to strum on beat
The music will tangle
The music will settle, into streams
When you’re just you and I’m just me
Track Name: Everything Will Change
Everything Will Change

One thousand crows
Bury the sky black with their wings
As the tower’s stone
Is crumbling
as we sing

Broken crowns
Castles burning to the ground
Kings will become poor men
Mountains loom
But rivers split their rock in two
And everything will change

The seas open up
And every high thing falls inside
We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for
All this time

Broken crowns
Castles burning to the ground
Kings will become poor men
Mountains loom
But rivers split their rock in two
And everything will change
Everything, everything will change

From the sky comes a roar shaking the earth
“Do not be afraid, do not be afraid”
Every light that was hiding meets our eyes
Every darkness is passing away, is passing away
We become like the ones who are shining
Rising from the grave
Track Name: Thief
Thief

Don’t invite a thief
Into your own home
Do not invite the thief
To sleep on your pillow

The mind in a door
For those who become You
Careful who you let in
‘cause I live in here too

Your thoughts may be thieves
You might be your own enemy
Do you wanna be free?

Do not fight this war
On the ones you love
Put your weapons down
Join those who soar above

Your thoughts may be thieves
You might be your own enemy
Do you wanna be free?

Your thoughts may be thieves
You might be your own enemy
It’s time you were free
Track Name: I Wish I Could Keep Your Kiss
I Wish I Could Keep Your Kiss

How, oh how do you walk away
from the hand, from the life you’ve been holding
with your very own?

We first found love in Santa Fe
but like the silver bracelet it’s been lost
somewhere in New Mexico

Oh, I wish I could keep your kiss on my mouth
from the day you had no doubts

How, oh how do we take those steps
walking out, out of each other
and split one into two?

We, we sat in our favorite place
on the day, I gave you the bracelet
and I said I loved you
You put it on, and said I love you, too

Oh, I wish I could keep your kiss on my mouth
from the day you had no doubts
Track Name: Light To Light
Light to Light

When morning hangs the sun
We our bikes through town
Later to the beach
Where night lays her back down
Moments come and moments go
But a hand is here for you to hold

We live from
The fire in our bones
But when our bones brake
The fire takes a toll
We’re hungry for the moon’s cold light
As we stand so still under night

If you need a hand ‘cause your hands can’t hold on
I’ll give you my own ‘cause together we’re strong
And if you go out and you’re all by yourself
Remember I’ll walk with you even through hell

We’re standing at the start of life
Arm in arm, light to light

We go out
To Mickey’s late at night
Your words barely walk
Though hungry for the fight
It’s hard to change the world, my friend
When the world’s the one changin’ you

If you need a hand ‘cause your hands can’t hold on
I’ll give you my own and together we’re strong
And if you go out and you’re all by yourself
Remember I’ll walk with you even through hell

We’re standing at the start of life
Arm in arm, light to light
Track Name: Safe Harbor
Safe Harbor

I write you in song
As you paint my face
The tide rolls in around us now
To carry us away

And as I reach for your small hand
The language that’s spoken between
Our skin whispers that we’ve found somethin’

I’ll be your safe harbor
You’ll be my daring sail
We’ll take on this wide ocean
We won’t be afraid to fail
No, we won’t be afraid to fail

Your laugh is a ladder
That I climb to the clouds
My eyes are your room tonight
Where I lay you down

Come with me, let’s go out for a drive
Around town, ‘till we find somewhere
We can talk all night
Then we’ll climb up in a willow tree where
I will hold you close
As we watch twilight colors change, and
We will grab a hold
Of these moments created

I’ll be your warm shelter
You’ll be my precious wing
We’ll take on this great blue sky
We won’t be afraid of fallin’
I’ll be your safe harbor
You’ll be my daring sail
We’ll take on this wide ocean
We won’t be afraid to fail
No we won’t be afraid to fail

O and I will be for you
O and you will be for me, too
