Track Name: Wide
I know if my mind could be quiet
A sound would come along
Oh God, will You come calm the seas of
This lonely one, this one

Show me the place where this life is just a day
Show me the day where the past will fall away
Come tell my eyes to be open, open wide
To be wide, to be wide

Remember the night that storm raged
You called out to me
Remember when I said “not this time”
Stay away this time

God, I know You’ve been near the whole time
But God, sometimes You seem hard to find
These days my pride has been making me blind

Show me the place where this life is just a day
Show me the day where the past will fall away
Come tell my eyes to be open, open wide
To be wide, to be wide
Track Name: Moon
Pull the blankets tight just for the night
Don’t let get inside
Wrapped up the dark I feel apart
Needing a fresh start

When the moon runs its course too slow
Then I run where I should not go
When the moon shines across the snow
In my mind winding winds I blow

My worried mind has brought such heavy thoughts
Waiting to be caught
The light inside the window brings it on
Waiting for the dawn

You so long ago
Came all alone
You offer a hope
Comfort the cold

When the moon runs its course so slow
Then I run where I should not go
When the moon shines across the snow
In my mind winding winds I blow
Track Name: Lines
These are just lines to try to describe love
“The look in your eyes” and all of the above

Clever lines fall short, every time
You, my love, I can’t describe but I will try

A streetlamp shines on a tree and I can see every leaf
You’re the light, the tree is me
You will glow through this night

Clever lines fall short every time
You, my love, I can’t describe but I will try
Clever lines fall short every time
You, my love, I can’t describe but I will try
Track Name: To Myself
Before you lay down, before your chest the mattress found
Your heart is somewhere so unsound

Is it all in your head?
Are you safer in bed?

Along your bedside, you feel the night has crept inside
And sadness leaves no place to hide

Is it all in your head?
Are you safer in bed?
Why carry your debt?

All you heavy laden, burdened, and oppressed
Love has come to lay your weary heart to rest
Track Name: Some Years
I’ll go run to the woods
A friend in the trees I will find
Standing together we would
Lift heartbroken arms to the sky

When did you last not feel so sad?
Not feel so bad?
I won’t pretend, I’m not sure when or how long it’s been
It’s the brightest it’s been in some years
It’s the brightest it’s been

Staring into the lake
The darkest green colored night
A rippled bend in my face
Suddenly seeming just right

When did you last not feel so sad?
Not feel so bad?
I won’t pretend, I’m not sure when or how long it’s been
When did you last not feel so sad?
Not feel so bad?
I won’t pretend, I’m not sure when or how long it’s been
It’s the brightest it’s been in some years
It’s the brightest it’s been in some years
It’s the brightest it’s been in some years
It’s the brightest it’s been in some years

It’s been some years now
It’s been some years now
It’s been some years now
It’s been some years now
Track Name: Slow Tide
So slow, the ocean’s hand
Moon light, a moving band

Cold sand, the tide a pen
Softly writes in sweeping bends
Hold my feet gently and then retreat

I hear the sound of the tide whispering
With every drowning word
It offers barely a sigh, it softly sings
A song so long unheard
It tells of Him, a quiet hymn
Track Name: To the Postmodern Man
Burn all of your bridges with nothing left behind
Who needs reason or rhyme?
Erase all the pages, there is no law to find
Everyone’s is fine, everyone’s but mine

Well my friend how can it be
That I’m wrong if there is no morality?
The difference between you and me
Is that I do my best to practice what I preach

What is right for me is not right for you?
Is nothing left that’s true?
But when you are harmed you walk right out the door
And justice must be restored, justice applies once more

Well my friend how can it be
That I’m wrong if there is no morality?
The difference between you and me
Is that I do my best to practice what I preach

Oh my friend, you feel unjustly treated now?
Well that’s the game
And it’s hard to play when you have thrown out all the rules
And only you’re behind the reins
Now don’t call names cause in this fight I’m just as right as you
Or so you said, or so you said
Track Name: Coming Through
The clouds seem to be lingering
Their cold stare covers me

But I see, I see You
Coming, coming through

The dark seems to be burying
The dull lights don’t do a thing

But I see, I see You
Coming, coming through
But I see, I see You
Coming, coming through
Track Name: Begin Again
Swimming darkness through the glass
As I watch the evening pass
From night to mind tonight I find

In their eyes I will find Your design
Into mine You will shine
In their eyes I will find Your design
Into mine You will shine, You will shine

Mingle moon with warm headlights
Distant stars and dashing lines
Are all I need to see tonight

In Your eyes I will find my design
Into mine You will shine
In Your eyes I will find my design
Into mine You will shine, You will shine

I begin, I begin
I begin again, I begin again
Track Name: Blood and Wood
I am not beautiful to see but this tree
Carries the one whose death set you free, can’t you see?
That pinned to this cross is a man from above
And within my wood there are blood stains of love

Oh, oh no
Clouds covered sun, blocking the light
Rocks split the earth was shaken with might
Surely this day a man of God died
On wood, wooden beams lifted upright
This man is the way, the truth, and the life, the life

Love had its way today
Love had its way today
Love had its way today
Love had its way today
Love had its way today
Blood mixed with wood can save
Track Name: The Ending
The highs and lows, my wooden boat is still afloat
I barely row and on I go, the wind You blow
The wind You blow

I know the ending
But I’m still pretending
That you’re not here and I can’t feel at home

And when it seems that I must sink You come to me
Across the waves, up from Your grave to calm the sea
To calm the sea

I love, I love You
I love, I love You
I love, I love You
I love, I love You
