Track Name: True
True

What went out into the air were only words I thought you'd want to hear
It never once crossed my mind I'd lose you for the sake of saving pride
And now there is something feels like I'm forgetting a little light from the brighter side of me
Maybe you are still there holding on and hoping I'm all you need

I tried to tell a lie so you could not see me scared to let go
And though I may never get it right, for you I could be beautiful
For you I could be true

What went wrong
When was the great divide
How did I start to back away from you
And could you ever know how it tears me up inside I let you down
And now there is something I never saw it coming
I never braced myself for loving you
Maybe there is still time for a new beginning for something true

And you know I mean it you and me we both have scars to hide and I think you feel it taking hold

For you I could be true.
Track Name: Right Beside You
Right Beside You ©2013

In the dark of night
You’re the brightest light
I’m holding on to a promise
So I ignore the pain
Tell you its ok
Don’t give up on what we started

Please don’t tell me you don’t want this

In the distance I can see things will work for you and me
Gotta hold on to this thing that we’ve started
What happened to the “I believe you’re the better part of me”
You are awake it’s not a dream
I’m right beside you
I don’t see a world without you

It started with a glance a note and then a chance
Who knew it would lead to this
Some might call it strange or say we’ve gone insane
But baby that’s ok
It is what it is

They don’t see you as I see you

In the distance I can see this is more than just a dream
When you’re lying next to me
Electrifying
It’s in your eyes it’s in your touch
I’ve never wanted this so much
You are awake it’s not a dream
I’m right beside you
Track Name: Gravity
Gravity


Something always brings me back to you It never takes too long
No matter what I say or do I still feel you here 'til the moment I'm gone
You hold me without touch
You keep me without chains, never wanted anything so much
Than to drown in your love and not feel your rain

Set me free, leave me be
I don't wanna fall another moment into your gravity
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I'm supposed to be
But you're on to me and all over me

You loved me 'cause I'm fragile and I thought that I was strong
But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone

Set me free, leave me be
I don't wanna fall another moment into your gravity
Here I am and I stand so tall I'm just the way I'm supposed to be
But you're on to me and all over me

I live here on my knees as I try to make you see
That you're everything I think I need here on the ground
You're neither friend nor foe though I can't seem to let you go
One thing that I still know Is that you're keeping me down You're keeping me down
You're on to me, on to me and all over Something always brings me back to you It never takes too long

Track Name: Steady
Steady ©2013

We feel small under the sparks of solar systems
Cut down by the dull blade of a crescent moon
Look at the sky like a blanket
Paint a picture with the words that fit.

You and I we might stumble and fall
But we're steady through the storm

What I give you
What I give you is all of the feeling my hands can show
What I give you
What I give to you is all of my heart that my hands can hold
We're steady ready for whatever comes
I'm steady in your arms
We're steady, ready for whatever comes
I'm steady in your arms

And if you need hope
Know I'm watching over you
We're in this together
We don't run, we don't run from a fight unafraid of the dark times

Our love is not a circumstance
It's the world we create
Track Name: This Sea
This Sea ©2013

I smile every time I hear your name
Your touch makes explosions to my brain
My heart takes control and I can’t fight the waves of love that crash on me
So much for being strong and standing tall alone to make a name for my own
You win I surrender all my heart, my love, my soul, my eyes to you

What a place to be this sea captured me and I drown in the feelings that this brings
With joy came the pain I’ll dance in the rain to stay in the game and see what this brings

This life brings surprises good and bad
Its hard to always try to understand
Yet, you, you remind me its not what we have its how we deal with it
So much for being strong and standing tall alone to make a name for my own
You win I surrender all my heart, my love, my soul, my eyes to you

I might drift from time to time I do my best to stay alive
Don't count me out as I fall in this fight to survive as these waves crash on me
Track Name: Next Best Thing
Next Best Thing ©2013

It could be a tear, maybe a last goodbye a dark night that's turning to morning
I'm hardwired to look through the pain been up the mountain and back again
I see the future locked up tight
I'd like to see what it might what it might hold inside
either way some things never change

We're always searching, looking for the next best thing
Like tomorrow comes with hopes and dreams
That fortune cookie really didn't tell me anything
And I I'm a runaway in a new place
Looking for a better way
There's gotta be something we're missing

Don't fear the dark times
The people who love you will stay
You'll know on the other side
The ones who walked we're never worth your time
Keep your heart on your sleeve Keep your feet on the ground
Be counted for what you create allow yourself to make a mistake
Either way, it doesn't end today

Cause you see it gets better
Its the choices we make that bring us together

There's gotta be something something we're missing
Track Name: Run For It
Run For It ©2013

It started with a fall
The cost of all the sweet lies
Clarity comes with a price

Holding on to threads
The moments that bind us together are slipping through my hands

I hope you know where you're taking us could be the road to ruin
I hope you know that I'm watching my back now
And I hope you know where you're taking us has me looking for a way out
So if I need a quick turn around I can run run run for it

And if I go away you'll carry on
Find another place to call your own
Find another rock to hide behind
Find another heart that lets you in
Who'll look the other way, won't ask you where you've been
But you won't find a way to steal the air I'm breathing

The tone of your voice used to be my comfort
Now you're throwing it round the room and I can't tell what sounds like you

Looking for a way out
I hope you know that I'm watching my back now
And I hope you know where you're taking us could be the road to ruin
So if I need a quick turn around I can run run run for it
Track Name: We Try
We All Try

I believe Jehovah Jireh I believe there's heaven
I believe in war I believe a woman's temple
Gives her the right to choose, But baby don't abort
I believe that marriage isn't between a man & woman
But between love and love and I believe you when you say that
You've lost all faith
But you must believe in something something something
You gotta believe in something something something

I still believe in man
A wise one asked me why
Cause I just don't believe we're wicked
I know that we sin but I do believe we try
We all try The girls try The boys try,Women try
Men try You and I Try try we all try

I don't believe in time travel I don't believe our nation's flag is on the moon
I don't believe our lives are simple And I don't believe they're short
This is interlude
I don't believe my hands are cleanly Can't believe that you would
Let me touch your heart
She didn't believe me when I said that I lost my faith
Said you must believe in something
Something something
You gottta believe in something
Something something
