Rain 03:56
RAIN Rain falls, it’s really comin’ down now See you, on the other side of this storm The time comes, when all the little pieces Just burst into life, right before our very eyes Crazy…before the calm, oh I can See you in the sun light, shining CHORUS: Every single breath, has prepared me for this Every single step, I am closer to it I won’t be taken by surprise Hey, Hey, You caught me And if I dream, I’ll realize Oh, Oh, You got me Rain comes, it’s all falling down now Answers come quickly like lightening The day breaks, all the little wishes Come together for the dream, like it was always meant to be Crazy before the calm, oh I can See you in the sun light, shining CHORUS: BRIDGE: Wait this out Just hold on Darlin’ before you know The rain is gone And we’ll be lifted up CHORUS

Lullaby Lady 04:46
Lullaby Lady Please mama, make me a melody Standing at the gallows and the ground’s gonna fall beneath me There’s pressure on my chest, I’m ready to rest Yeah I’m barely breathing Oh life, you sure know how to play me While my body lies there weeping On my knees, face to the ground Imagining the shock of how they found me CHORUS: Lullaby lady, save me This pale death lies here waiting for me Oh sing it to me slowly – tell me It’s not your time You come around, only on occasion And once you’ve decided to stay Lightening, you’re coming to a revelation the things that were will never go away Brought nothing home - from the hunt – just defeated They’ll say I lost my head and didn’t try They’ll wonder how they didn’t see it They’ll take my gun and hide me from the light, yeah They’ll take my gun and hide me from the light CHORUS: BRIDGE: When you’re down and really down And you can’t go on You want to scream out loud Take me now or let me live my glory She sings and makes some hope She breathes into the soul You know the despair Won’t last forever CHORUS:

Touch and Go 04:01
Touch n Go Touch and Go but I give you the chance You took my love but not my heart So I touch and go think I’ll turn it around Broken bones but I’m still beating What protects the love that’s bleeding Satellites you always float around Set in circles looking down Like satellites never see the ground Love you all give what I can Looking for a place to land CHORUS: When it’s good you know it’s good You don’t think about nothing at all When it’s sweet you know it’s sweet So you head straight onto the fall When you know it’s good, it’s good Everything just falls in line When it’s sweet you know its sweet Without trying We’re promised this one little thing In the end we’ll have to go This tangled life is the in between Search to find the one with meaning 1,000 times we’ll die believing

Never Look Back It's heavy, weighing it down the words won't escape me the tide could erase me but I can't help but hold it now. Laugh and run from the edge of the world the road I take wont break me love will still replace me if I try to take myself down. Chorus: There is no time for pulling, pushing back it'll be fine, I can just relax if I come under attack I'll draw my sword and never look back no, never look back Holding onto a story that keeps me from my glory never wanted to be one of those you could overthrow. lying around like a king in a house with walls they can be taken down now I stand, no defense and amused my blood, my father, my home. Chorus: There is no time for pulling, pushing back it'll be fine, I can just relax if I come under attack I'll draw my sword and never look back no, never look back I'll draw my sword and never look back Never look back Never look back Never look back

Carried Away 04:14
Carried Away Lookin up, winds died down, you can come out now, the sky is clear Looking down on the wreckage, Beat the wood out of the houses, The sky would never betray there’d been a storm here Poor old Charlie, from two doors down His whole damn house, nowhere to be found Still sitting there in his lazy chair, Just taking it all in CHORUS Show me the negative of the night sky I’ll tell you why I used to think it was all I’d see Show me the negative of the night sky, Could’ve been carried away Could’ve been carried away The neighborhood is disarray, glad to be alive They come together Trading beer for firelight Trading stories, trading lies, The sky would never betray there’d been a storm here All we’re asking is for another night (just?) Before we have to start again We’ll make do, we’ll figure it out And we’ll do it tomorrow CHORUS BRIDGE: Upside down, inside out Left to write the tale about The storm that nearly carried us away Glory be, grateful now Don’t know when and don’t know how But we’ll build the fortress strong til we feel safe

Light of Day 03:22
Light of Day Almost there, I can feel the air Takes my breather away, but I can’t stop now Growing up, I never knew the struggle Til it settled in next to me and my days Still I carry on. Still I keep the faith. Can I just call the time of struggle past And everything easy? CHORUS: And if I have one last weight to bear Let it be worth the love I’ve shared Let me stay here for the night I’ll make the rest of my way in the light of day Been traveling so long, I don’t know where I’m going Can’t see the end, but I keep on Looking back, it circles around You have gotten the best of me Still I carry on. Still I keep the faith. Can I just call the kettle black And you the liar CHORUS Bridge: Oh if only, you would come and wash it all away Oh so lonely, wish you were here and you could carry me CHORUS

Drive 03:32
Drive Cut the tension with a knife Will we make it through the night Rolling with the noise on 95 Now we’re stuck, we said too much Said too much and not enough Holding to the right on 95 CHORUS: Drive, drive, drive I can see it in your eyes by the dashboard light The silence is killing me The moonlight is breaking And we drive, drive, drive Nothing turns to mountaintops Wanted to but couldn’t stop Prayin’ just to see the next state line Counting down we’re getting close To the point letting of go The place along the way we crossed we line CHORUS: Trip and fall the day breaks It’s so clear in the light of morning Laugh and cry then I wake Nothings gonna make me stay, NO CHORUS: Drive, drive, drive I could see it your eyes by the dashboard light The silence was killing me The moonlight was breaking So I drive, drive, drive

One True Love Vs.1 You know how it feels when you think that you’ve got it all That’s how I feel with you by my side You’re so sweet, you always answer when I call If I break down, you’re my ride Wish the weather, was better You’re my scarf, my umbrella When the sun’s too, hot for me You’re cool, you’re my iced tea My big tall tree. CHORUS: If it takes you’re whole life Then it’s worth it To find the one who’s more than Entertainment To find you’re one true love To find you’re one true love Vs.2 You know how it feels when you’re sure you have the one? That’s how I feel with you by my side No matter what, we’re always havin’ fun Nothing to fear or to hide I’m bored, nothings happenin’ You make it good you keep me laughin’ When the worlds to hard on me You talk me down, you just love me My big tall tree CHORUS La, da la, da, da CHORUS

One and Only 03:35
One and Only Finding myself, better every day It’s so nice to know you I don’t mind a cloudy day We can just sit here and play You’re my one and only You’re my one and only Just yesterday, I thought of you And I smiled aloud What will your name be, how will you feel? You’re my one and only You’re my one and only Do I go there, dare I say What I’m thinking You let it all go, take control You wake up and you wonder why they’re gone You don’t like where you’re rolling So you push ahead Find people who remind you how it goes Then you’ll know You’re my one and only You will stay here and I will be with you It’s so nice to have you near I don’t mind being alone You’re still around after they are all gone I’ll never loose you, you will never leave You’re my one and only You’re my one and only Do I go there, dare I say What I’m thinking You let it all go, take control You wake up and you wonder why they’re gone You don’t like where you’re rolling So you push ahead Find people who remind you how it goes Then you’ll know You’re my one and only

FUN IN THE SUMMER SUN Lets go have some fun Some fun in the summer fun Won’t you have some fun Put on your favorite sunglasses I bet you look fantastic Best I’ve ever seen So take my red ribbon Tie it in a bow We’ll put on a fancy show Pretty cool I must confess This show is the best And look at me in my dress CHORUS: See you standing there Sparkles in your eyes Won’t you take the time Come and play with me We’ll laugh merrily As the sun sets beneath the sky We’ll have some fun Some fun in the summer sun The sky fades to twilight The yellow sun says good-bye stars invite the night Wish I may, wish I might Have the wish I wish tonight Love the live long day Move your happy feet C’mon and dance with me Twirling in the breeze The world seems brighter With flowers at our feet Wont you dance with me CHORUS
