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

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

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

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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
