Track Name: Song For You
Song for You

my voice you didn’t know, didn’t know
i called you had to go, had to go
back to your little world
where nothing is strange

you set out on your own, on your own
you said, i’m heading home, heading home
back to the life you know
neatly arranged

I have done for you
everything my love
hear my song for you
I will not hold my tongue

it’s late, your getting cold, getting cold
you try to keep warm, but you’re alone, you’re alone
the dark streets are empty now | and the wind starts to blow

I have done for you
everything my love
hear My song for you
I will not hold my tongue
open your heart, open your heart
for I have loved you from the start
I will never harm you, come my love
So come
So come

I have done for you
everything my love
hear My song for you
I will not hold my tongue
open your heart, open your heart
for I have loved you
open your heart, open your heart
for I have loved you from the start
Track Name: This Is Just So Beautiful
This is Just So Beautiful

a little sparrow is serenading me
brand new melodies, songs so sweet
the roses' aroma is flying in the breeze
i close my eyes, breathe in deep

yesterday is gone
today i can see, o today i can see

my, my, my, for the very first time
i waved goodbye, bye, bye
to what used to weight me down
my, my, my everything’s alright
the sun is shining down
i’m looking all around
and this is just so beautiful

i felt forgiveness in the deep recesses of my soul
i was so empty, now i’m full, i'm whole
the world is cold and so very, very cruel
but the sparrows and the roses remind me there’s still so much good

yesterday is gone
today i can see, o today i believe

my, my, my, for the very first time
i waved goodbye, bye, bye
to what used to weight me down
my, my, my everything’s alright
the sun is shining down
i’m looking all around
and this is just so beautiful

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

my, my, my, for the very first time
i waved goodbye, bye, bye
to what used to weight me down
my, my, my everything’s alright
the sun is shining down
i’m looking all around
and this is just so beautiful
Track Name: Dreaming of Peace
Dreaming of Peace

i see people on the corner holding their signs
people in the road forming a picket line
want the world to know they’re here
trying to make their message clear
i honk for peace and hear them cheer

watch them smile in my rearview mirror
keep on driving, just pass on by
i’ll honk again at the next sign
it’s hard to face reality, so i’ll just keep on dreaming

it’s plain to see, we don’t have the answers
but we think we know, and so it goes
it’s plain to see, we don’t have it together
but we think we know, so it goes on

students in the green arms intertwined
candles lit, swaying side to side
show the world that we’re aware
but we're not going anywhere
i can’t remember which petition i signed
but i sleep pretty well each night
knowing that i’ve done my share in showing everyone i care
it’s hard to face reality, so i’ll just keep on dreaming

it’s plain to see, we don’t have the answers
but we think we know, and so it goes
it’s plain to see, we don’t have it together
but we think we know, so it goes on

but while we’re standing in the streets
they’re fighting off disease
i’m in the comfort of my bed
not dealing with a shred
of this war between nations and this war against nature
it’s a battlefield that i’ve never seen

it’s plain to see, we don’t have the answers
but we think we know, and so it goes
it’s plain to see, we don’t have it together
but we think we know, so it goes on

and so it goes on
o must it go on
Track Name: Faint Not
Faint Not

the problem’s not a gun, not a color, not a hundred dollar bill
we think the struggle can be won with simple thoughts like 'come together be good willed'
the gap between the rich and poor is spreading out all the more or so they say
we ignore the claims

o my soul, faint not, no
faint not | o my soul, keep up, up
in love

it’s not that we don’t know or we’re not shown the proof of poverty
it’s not that we don’t have the tools to go to break this yoke of slavery
we quit because it’s not an easy fix and then forget that they are even there
we forget to care

o my soul, faint not, no
faint not | o my soul, keep up, up
in love

where there is hatred, let me sow love
where there is injury, let me pardon
where there is darkness, let the Light come, come

o my soul, faint not, no
faint not | o my soul, keep up, up
in love

o my soul, faint not, no
faint not | o my soul, keep up, up
in love

faint not
faint not
Track Name: Psalm 46
Psalm 46

the LORD is my refuge and strength
therefore i will not be afraid
though the mountains give way
and fall into the sea
He will come and rescue me

the LORD comes to me at break of day
He reaches down to guide me in His ways
though the oceans roar
in this dark and stormy sea
He will come and rescue me

halleluYah, He is with me
halleluYah, we cannot be moved
halleluYah, He is with me
halleluYah, i rest secure

be still and know that He is God
He will be exalted over all
come and behold His strength and majesty
yet He will come and rescue me

halleluYah, He is with me
halleluYah, we cannot be moved
halleluYah, He is with me
halleluYah, i rest secure
Track Name: Holding on to Hope
Holding on to Hope

people i know around me float past with the debris
saying they don’t mind, such is life, as they float on down the street
i heard the worst is to come, i heard the words
'look above and find your home in Me
in this storm

i’m holding on to hope, hope, hope
and never letting go, no, no
even when the storm it grows, hope, hope
will never let me go, no, no
‘til i go on home

people build homes using pieces of broken virtue and philosophy
when people place hope in people i notice even more broken dreams
i know that time is so short, there’s something in store, a home i’ve never seen
in this storm, o in this storm

i’m holding on to hope, hope, hope
and never letting go, no, no
even when the storm it grows, hope, hope
will never let me go, no, no
‘til i go on home

only a trace, no face to face
so here i wait with this poor reflection
running a race, scared i’m going to break down
give me strength, Your protection
only a moment, a passing of time
until the day when faith is sight
only a moment, like a flashing of light
so keep me safe, keep me nigh
keep my way homeward bound
when the rain’s pouring down
keep me safe, keep me safe

i’m holding on to hope
never letting go, no, no
‘til the day i come on home, hope, hope
and finally fully know
Track Name: Carry Me feat. Mac Powell
Carry Me

broken-hearted i come
my cup is empty, my mouth is dry
see how quickly i fall
burdened with darkness
heavy in lies

i want to cry, but i can’t
i try to stand but i fall down again

i need You to carry me
i need You to carry me
i need You to carry me
when i am weak

o this can’t be enough
to just say i’m sorry, to confess my fault
when i’ve hurt You so much
and now i am asking for You to do more

i want to cry, but i can’t
i try to stand but i fall down again

i need You to carry me
i need You to carry me
i need You to carry me
when i am weak

i'm always weak...
when I first met you I drew you in close to me
your weaknesses covered with strength and security
I've never left you, nor will I ever leave
child believe, child believe

but you are strong...
when I first met you I drew you in close to me
your weaknesses covered with strength and security
I've never left you, nor will I ever leave
child believe, child believe

i need You to carry me
i need You to carry me
i need You to carry me
when i am weak
Track Name: Through Your Eyes
Through Your Eyes

blank pages for months
and the sound of his voice rings in my head
saying i should give up
and all that I write is meaningless

he says, no one else has to know about this
no one else has to know

white sheets feel so cold
i pull them tight but i can’t get warm
tonight he has won
i turn on the light so i won’t feel alone

he says, no one else has to know about this
no one else has to know

abandoned guitars
dust covered shelves, laundry piled high
tell me i’m not enough
and i know that they are wrong
but i still believe these lies

he says, no one else has to know about this
no one else has to know
no one else has to know

ooh i want to see myself through Your eyes
ooh i want to see myself through Your eyes Divine
ooh Father help me see myself through Your eyes
ooh i want to see myself through Your eyes
ooh i want to see myself through Your eyes
Track Name: As Long as our Hearts are Beating
As Long as Our Hearts Are Beating

my bride, my bride, i can hardly hold myself together
this day, this night, i see you as your are and i never want to leave
no more words from my lips, just the look in your eyes
says it all, so much more than i could ever
i won’t try

after the sunset disappears
when there’s no one around and there’s nowhere but here
o my love, let’s keep this up as long as we’re breathing
forgetting the world outside of this room
while you’re holding me close, while i’m holding on to you
o my love, let’s keep this up as long as our hearts are beating

my bride, my bride, there’s something holding us together
with you, by my side, everything fits so much better, i remember
when you told me that you loved me for the very first time
with those tears in your eyes | so beautiful, now you’re mine

after the sunset disappears
when there’s no one around and there’s nowhere but here
o my love, let’s keep this up as long as we’re breathing
forgetting the world outside of this room
while you’re holding me close, while i’m holding on to you
o my love, let’s keep this up, let's keep this up

after the sunset disappears
when there’s no one around and there’s nowhere but here
o my love, let’s keep this up
forgetting the world outside of this room
while you’re holding me close, while i’m holding on to you
o my love, let’s keep this up as long as our hearts are beating
Track Name: Anchored in Love
Anchored in Love

i’ve found a sweet haven of sunshine at last
and Jesus abiding above
His dear arms around me are lovingly cast
and sweetly He tells His love

the tempest is o’er
i’m safe evermore
what gladness what rapture is mine
the danger is past
i’m anchored at last
i’m anchored in love Divine

He saw me endangered and lovingly came
to quiet my storm beaten soul
sweet words He has spoken and bless His dear name
the billows no longer roll

the tempest is o’er
i’m safe evermore
what gladness what rapture is mine
the danger is past
i’m anchored at last
i’m anchored in love Divine

His love shall control me through life and in death
completely i’ll trust to the end
i’ll praise Him forever and with my last breath
i’ll sing of my soul’s best friend

the tempest is o’er
i’m safe evermore
what gladness what rapture is mine
the danger is past
i’m anchored at last
i’m anchored in love Divine
Track Name: Stop Staring at Me (Bonus)
i was mistaken today for 16 years old
yesterday a woman looked at me real cold she said
how on earth are you married?
does your mother know where you are?

and the ups man won't let me sign
my name on his dotted line and i
can't get into the movies
without showing my i.d.

i hear people snicker, and i sense their whispers

stop staring at me, when you see
that i'm wearing a diamond ring
stop staring at me, when i say
i think my husband's on his way
stop staring at me, when you notice
the mrs. in front of my name
can't see you, I'm 23
so whatcha staring for?

well i have a daughter she's about your age
and i'd kill myself if i saw a ring
or worse if she were married
do you even have a job?

i wish they would listen and not jump to conclusions

chorus

i promise i am not out of my mind
with him i'm so much better
we don't got much, what we've got is Love
Love is our protector, Love holds us together

chorus
