lovin' you 03:43
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

daydream 02:21
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

Shaelyn 03:51
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

within reach 02:56
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

crazy 03:28
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

when I fall 03:44
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

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

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

subtly 05:00
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.
