Track Name: lovin' you
I checked the pockets of your dirty jeans,
found a letter that you wrote to me
I love the way you keep it short and sweet
and your handwriting is so unique
All it takes is just a little line
slippin sweetly from your heart to mine
Pullin pennies out of your pockets is the usual routine
But today somehow you slowed it down
and made me start to sing

It’s the way I find my peace of mind, lovin you
Like a flower in a summer rain, lovin you
And my favorite thing to do
But you already knew, it’s lovin you

Well they say that love’s a funny thing,
how it affects the way you breathe
And spins you when you try to think,
but somehow gives you clarity
All it takes is just a little line,
and I know your heart is tied to mine
Washin little toes and dirty clothes,
doesn’t matter what we do
Cause the sweetest place in the world
is always next to you

It’s the way I find my peace of mind, lovin you
Like the sunlight as it slips behind the view, lovin you
And my favorite thing to do
But you already knew
It’s the way I find my peace of mind, lovin you
Like a flower in a summer rain, lovin you
And my favorite thing to do
But you already knew, it’s lovin you
Track Name: daydream
All you ever wanted is stuck inside a day dream
Playin over the moments you had and lost, now unseen
And life gets a little harder and the boxes are paper thin
To hold your ‘what ifs’ I were different a little better maybe then…

But see, you and all the life around you
There was no mistake to get you to this place


Seein over the sunrise into a brighter blue skies
Lookin over the sunset past a life of regret
And the day comes to a close when you know that a Hand will guide
Every moment, every misstep, every triumph that builds a life…

see, you and all the life around you
There was no mistake to get you to this place
see, you and all the life around you
This reality beats a daydream
Track Name: Shaelyn
You’ve heard a line of love before as it headed out the door
If all of this is true and pointed to you would you see

Life is like a leaf barely hangin on a tree
You work against the wind but it comes back again, Shaelyn

Caught a glimpse of love one time made your pretty eyes shine
You’re not a little girl this is not a little world at all

And life is like a leaf barely hangin on a tree
You work against the wind but it comes back again
Walking with a faith so thin you wonder where the answers have been, Shaelyn

There’s a love for you, the good Lord true
Put your trust in Him you will never be shaken, Shaelyn

Life is like a leaf barely hangin on a tree
You work against the wind but it comes back again
Oh life is like a leaf barely hangin on a tree
Try to love the wind like an honest friend, Shaelyn
Track Name: within reach
Walking out the door I’ve got my coffee and the keys
What today will have in store I just can’t wait to see
And love is finally in the place I think my arms can reach

You know when you see someone you love
And love spills over the top of your cup
Forever to be within reach
A kiss and a hug and the silliest stuff
Makes the blood flow to your feet
So that everything you need is within reach

passin miles ‘cross the line its Arizona now
Maybe we should take a walk before the sun goes down
And take a while to find the way into that tiny town

Let’s take a drive till the hwy bends into the sea
9-5 or through the night as long as you’re with me

You know when you see someone you love
And love spills over the top of your cup
Forever to be within reach
A kiss and a hug and the silliest stuff
Makes the blood flow to your feet
So that everything you need is within reach
Track Name: crazy
Holdin a yellow kite,
runnin around and round to make it fly
Catchin the rain in your eye
Hold on a little tighter, I know you’re getting tired

You maybe think I’m crazy
Waitin for the silver line in the sky that’s rainin
And the sun refuse to shine
But I know what’s up there past the grey
And good things come, yea
Good things come, lala
Good things come to those who wait

Feels like you’re wearing down
but sometimes the storm will rage and you ride it out

trapped and strapped down looking grim,
massive sky is closing in
but the grey will dissipate
and time erase the burning ache
there are those that have it worse than you,
hold your head up, wait for blue
see the bright side of the plan
it was there when this began
and the sun will win for the light to shine again
Track Name: when I fall
It’s been a rough day in the neighborhood Why can’t things just go the way they should
Looks like luck forgot my name Or never wrote it down, what a shame
It’s so funny I forgot to laugh Through the tears and aftermath
Of all my selfish rage It’s been a rough day

But I’ll love you when I fall
Cause I know you’re there to catch me
Even though I deserve to hit the wall
Oh when I fall, I’m not so tall, when I fall

We all fall down in different styles
some go fast and some take a while
Seven times I’ll fall in sin
and seven times I’ll get back up again
Cause the center of the universe
is different than what I rehearsed
It’s just not me at all….

But I’ll love you when I fall
Cause I know you’re there to catch me
Even though I deserve to hit the wall
Oh when I fall, I’m not so tall, when I fall
Track Name: empty & blank
I have a canvas but it stays white
No coloration a square so trite
I’m not a brush, not even a drop of paint
I’m not a killer no I’m not a saint
Just empty pages from empty places
My easel remains the same empty, empty and blank

Something tells me I have to breathe it in
All my failures yeah all of my sin
Under a shadow of guilt
I feel the current of my weight
Who am I supposed to be?
I’m finding out a little late
Just empty pages from empty places
My easel remains the same empty, empty and blank

The introduction of me to myself
The correlation between lines on a shelf
Just a bucket of dust that now fathoms its fate
The breath of sustenance remains to recreate
Filling the empty pages with endless phrases
Of life and love and grace
I’m not empty, empty and blank
Track Name: stars & lullabies
Sing little girl, you’re the prettiest thing in the world tonight to me
Dance little boy, you’re a precious joy jumping all over me
I can’t imagine time I can’t imagine life here without you, sweet

I live and I breathe and have a purpose so much bigger than me
I can’t imagine time I can’t imagine life here without you, sweet
I work around the changing age everyday changes made you’re not the same

But joy fills my heart because of you
And if I could keep the world away
make it stay far from you
I’d give anything for your security

Close little eyes,
to a peaceful land of stars and lullabies
I hold you close you close your eyes you’re tired breathe a tiny sigh add years to my life
and peace to my mind

Joy fills my heart because of you
And if I could keep the world away
make it stay far from you
I’d give everything for your security

If I had to I would choose to sacrifice my life for you
Give my last breath, Love is strong as death
Track Name: subtly
Subtly. Can’t take back.
Moments cost your life, subtly.
And you breathe, waiting.
But light has drained from your eyes, subtly.

So many people in this life alone.
All they wanted was a happy home.
Freedom from a life of flesh and bone.

But heartache comes and laughter comes
And each day holds it’s own, subtly.

It sneaks up. It creeps up.
Before you know you’re drowning in the sea.
Patiently, I watch him reach,
But your hands can’t find the way to peace

You say ‘all I wanted in this life is love,
I guess that is the crime I’m guilty of.’
Justified because you feel ok
I was told our hearts lead us astray

But heartache comes and laughter comes
And each day holds it’s own, subtly.

Subtly. You close your eyes
And moments cost your life, subtly.
