Track Name: Surge/Natural Disaster
Lead Don't Follow Your Heart
Love is Natural
Love is a Natural Disaster
Unless it is Supernatural
Track Name: Trying
I taped your conversation with a lover and a thief
they both were from your memory, that was disbelief

I tried to make it make sense, I tried to make it real
but when I questioned reason, reason questioned me
ask yourself, know your self.

Now I’m trying to hear
what I’m trying not to hear

I followed pretty rainbow to the other side
I faded into black sky, it was the same that meets the eye
I cry, like the sky

Now I’m trying to be
A rainbow to thee.
Track Name: To Me
Life can be so bright
I want to dim it all
and see just what you see
in me, oh please, what’s in me

Hope can be so small
I want to give it all
and feel just what you feel
with me, oh please, what’s with me

Standing on the edge of day
I’ll find my way
Walking to the front to see
What you mean to me

Time can grow apart
I choose to reconnect
and see just what you mean
to me, tell me, what’s to be

Love can see us through
and lift us up above this
Bed I made for me
You’ll see, in time, what’s in me

Left to my own devices
destroyed would be this beauty
You did not let this go

Standing on the edge of day
I’ll find my way
Walking to the front to see
what you mean
Running around in my heart
It’s plain to see
the better part to me
Track Name: Sound of Stars
Sound of Stars

I see you up there now
Looking down at me
you got me wondering now
where else I could be

I just wanna hear you sing
to hear the sound of your blue string
who else thinks about these things
is there anyone out there near or far
who wants to hear the sound of stars

I see you trying now
to show me what to do
Have trouble reading now
The signs that come from you

I just wanna hear you sing
to hear the sound of your blue string
who else thinks about these things
is there anyone out there near or far
who wants to hear the sound of stars

Out here beyond the moon we know
something is waiting for me
hope the song beyond lunar glow
will us to understand thee.

OOOOOOOH
who wants to hear the sound of stars?
Track Name: The Race
The Race

Do you like
When I drive like this
Across this state
to where we’ll be alright, alright

Every now and then
wind blows to a place
shows me what I need
Need you in the race

Would you mind
If I take this route
over this land
into the dawn of night, alright

Every now and then
wind blows to a place
shows me what I need
Need you in the race

Listen now I’m calling
Calling out to you
What to do?

When you’re trying not to lose
and nothing else will do
Why know why?

If every thought you harbored
You would make it harder
I thank you friend

Forgiveness is
a reason why
I know why.
Track Name: Obliged
Like a Tambourine You Shake
When You tremble You awake
You are Alive I am Obliged
Like a Tom Tom drum Resonate
When I Empathize You Feel Safe
You are Mine
I am obliged
Though at times I struggle You are still my lover
I am obliged
Like a Piano
You Sing
The Sustain in my Heart You Bring
You will find me here I wait for you
You are calming this storm To you I am obliged
You are calming my fear To You I’m coming home
Track Name: Something To Say
Something to Say

A fold across the sky tonight
has brought me closer to the light
Where it’s from who knows just yet
but no one here will soon forget

A tear across this play I see
something has been ripped away from me
I’m saving views and wings a few
return to something old and new

A time to be a star so bright
I may never get this right
Things have never been so strange as this day
I need to find something to say

Some glue is what I think we’ll need
to hold together what we’ll be
A bond of bonds until the end
I need you now my dearest friend.

A time to be a star so bright
I think I can get this right
Things have never been so strange as this day
I think I found something to say.
Track Name: Letting Go While Holding Tight
Getting on that plane today Heading to where you are and Where I’ll Stay Wonder when I arrive
If you’ll let me drive
Your letting go while holding on tight To a song I’d never write
I just might
Sing that never song
to you tonight
to you tonight
Over Clouds Below the Sea None between You and Me
Getting on that train today heading to where I am
and where you’ll stay know that when you arrive I will let you drive
I’m letting go while holding tight
Track Name: Welcome Home
Welcome Home

I burned time just to see where
I’d be without a home
Lost a friend that I knew well
He was now alone

Where is home
Where has he gone
Where is home
He must return here

My friend comes now to see her
She leaves the bright light on
He doesn’t know what he’s feeling
he’s got his blinders on

Where is home
Where has he gone
Where is home
He must return here

Come back home
She sang all along
Come back home
I think you belong here

....and then he turned around

Welcome Home
the road has been long
Welcome Home
I think I belong here.
Track Name: The Last Time
When the last is first and the first is worst
We shall too be there, show them that we care
Oooooh the last time Oooooh the last time We will sail away
When we reach the shore of a distant heart They will climb aboard cause they need us too
Oooooh the last time Oooooh the last time We will sail away
Day after day rises and sets a new sun A light which in time we must follow Where does it go?
Everybody knows, Everybody knows Morning starts again.
The last time
Distance shore to shore The last time
Forever wanting more The last time
Every moment freezing The last time
I am never leaving
I am never leaving
