Track Name: Too Good
It is not as we've seen, it is not as we've read, it is not as they've said. How we need to forget, we need to reset and be like children again. Are you hungry and have no money? You can sit at this table. Are you thirsty and unworthy? You can draw from this well.

Are you weak, are you poor are you wanting for more, in the quiet of your heart? To yourself you say I wish someone would pass my way, and give me a new start. Sweetheart, stop cutting your sweet arms, no hope, smoking dope and drinking your life away. lets dance and sing, lets eat from the tree, Come down to the river with me.

It may be too good to be understood, but its not too good to be true.

From the dust we came, to the dust we all will go. We brought nothing with us, we'll take nothing on, Heaven knows keep in mind, it'll take a little time, But darlin' you're gonna find where you came from. Don't let your eyes deceive your heart, believe the best is yet to come.

It may be too good to be understood, but its not too good to be true.
He may be too good to be understood, but he's not to good to be.
Track Name: Headed for the Hills
I am headed for the hills, I am headed for the mountain lands Somewhere I can breathe again, In the air of heaven Somewhere I can see for miles, standing underneath the stars. See how small I really am, and how big you really are. I am headed for the hills

I am headed for the road, I am headed for the countryside I am headed through the fields, just to drive and drive If only for the love of a song in my ears, Of the sun on my face, and the wind in my hair, I am headed for the road

I am headed for the woods, somewhere I can run and hide Take cover in the world on the inside Go wandering just to see what I can find Step off of the map and get lost for a while

I am headed for the sea, somewhere I can feel again The earth under my feet and the water on my skin Come face to face with something I can't understand Resolve that its ok to let go and dive in I am headed for the sea

I am headed for the hills, gonna leave it all behind, I'm headed for the hills, If only in my heart and mind.
Track Name: Kiss You
I could kiss you on the mouth, I could kiss you on the mouth, if i can't kiss you on the mouth, then I'll kiss you with my words, I'll kiss you with my trust, I'll kiss you with my heart, heart. then I'll kiss you with my words, I'll kiss you with my trust, I'll kiss you with my heart.

I want to hold you in my arms, I want to hold you in my arms, if i can't hold you in my arms, then I'll hold you in my words, I'll hold you in my trust, I'll hold you in my heart, heart. I'll hold you in my words, I'll hold you in my trust, I'll hold you in my heart, heart.

Just to see you with my eyes, just to see you with my eyes, if i can't see you with my eyes, then I'll see you with my words, I'll see you with my trust, I'll see you with my heart, heart. I'll see you with my words, I'll see you with my trust, I'll see you with my heart, heart.

I will love you til I die. I will love you til I die. And when I've loved you til i've died, then I'll love you with my kiss, I'll love you with my touch, I'll love you with my eyes, eyes.
Track Name: In the Meantime
Hey baby, do you remember when I told you I wouldn't give you more than you could hold? I wasn't lying, I wasn't lying to you baby. I'm the one in control, you're the one that I'm holding, I'll take your burdens on my shoulders and carry us on.

And in time, I'll let you in on everything I'm planning. When it's time, I'll let you see everything you're asking me. When it's time, you will know why there are things I'm hiding from you. But I'm gonna satisfy everything in the meantime.

Hey baby, do you remember when I said that I would give you more than you could ever ask or imagine? I wasn't playing, I wasn't playing with you baby. I'm the one in control, you're the one that I'm holding, I'll take your burdens on my shoulders and carry us on.

And in time, I'll let you in on everything I'm planning. When it's time, I'll let you see everything you're asking me. When it's time, you will know why there are things I'm hiding from you. But I'm gonna satisfy everything in the meantime.
Track Name: There's Still Time
Did i hear, did i hear that the end is near? Did you say, did you say there's a reckoning day? Am I gonna see it with my own eyes? Is is true, is it true about the day of doom? Is this it, is this it, the apocalypse? Am I gonna see it with my own eyes?

Will there be zombies, fires and floods, will there be an EMP, moons turn to blood?

Blessed is a man if he knows the Lamb when he sees him. Cursed is a man who has money, and food, and a place to hide. And a head full of knowledge and a heart full of pride. Cursed is a man if he does not know the Lamb.

Has it come, has it come, revelation? It begun, has it begun, kingdom coming? I, I'm gonna see it with my own eyes.

Will there be zombies, fires and floods, will there be an EMP, moons turn to blood? Hell will rage, wars will roar, and then the coming of the Lord.

Blessed is a man if he knows the Lamb when he sees him. Cursed is a man who has money, and food, and a place to hide. And a head full of knowledge and a heart full of pride. Cursed is a man if he does not know the Lamb.

There's still time. There's still time. He is patient and kind.

Cursed is a man if he does not know the Lamb. Blessed is a man, if he knows the Lamb.
Track Name: Healing Me
There's only a few I will ever let in, I will ever let in. There's only a few who will ever know the truth, who will ever know the truth.

Everyone says talk about it, but every time I open my mouth it all gets twisted up on its way out. Every time you come around, you're feeling like my home now, I feel like I can let my hair down.

There's only a few who will ever climb these walls, who will come and scale these walls. And there's only a few who will push me til i break, who will love me til I break.

Everyone says talk about it, but every time I open my mouth it all gets tangled up on its way out. Every time you come around, you're feeling like my home now, I feel like I can let my hair down.

Oh it comes so naturally, sit down beside me, you don't have to say a thing. Oh it comes so easily, so comfortably, its healing me.
Track Name: Deserve
I, I don't, I don't treat you as you deserve. You, You don't, you don't treat me as I deserve. You don't treat me as I deserve.

My life is a breath. My life is a passing shadow. it sways and it bends with the wind.

But I am a spirit. I am more than flesh and blood and when it is time, I will leave this behind.

Outside, we are dust. Inside, something's hidden in us. And you, you are sick with love, for us, for a treasure in dust, that you would go in your joy, sell all that you had, and buy the field, and buy the pearl.

You, You don't, you don't treat me as I deserve. I, I don't, I don't treat you as you deserve. But I want to, and I will.
Track Name: Runaway
I can see it in your eyes, that you're gonna run, you're gonna run I can hear it in the way you speak to me that you're gonna leave And as you slip away, I will say...As you pack your things, I will sing...

Even if you run away from me, over the mountains through the valleys I will not rest but search east and west to bring you back with me Even if you sail away from across the oceans and the seas, I will move again like the mighty wind and blow you back to me. I'm gonna move again like the mighty wind and blow you back to me.

I have seen this all before it is all too familiar. But you will never see the bottom of my storehouses of love. So as you use the night, to make your flight, no choice that you will make or path you take will change my mind.

Even if one day you decide, you will find somewhere else to hide I will walk your way and call your name and wait for your reply. Even if you make up in your mind, you don't want be by my side, I will leave behind 99 oh the you'd be mine. I'm gonna leave behind 99 oh the you'd be mine.

Even if you stomp and scream and huff, tell me that I'm not good enough I'll take every swing and every blow, until you know my love. Even if you beat upon my chest, tell me that you don't understand, I will love you and teach you to love me again, I'm gonna love you and teach you to love me again.
Track Name: Twenty-Four
You are not alone, I promise you're not alone.
I am closer than the breath you're breathing in.

You're 24 don't deny it, You're 24 don't try and hide it. Maybe your 24, you say you don't know who you are, but right now you know more than you have ever known before.

You are not alone, I promise you're not alone.
I am closer than the breath you're breathing in.

Your eyes have not seen, your ears have not heard, What I have in store for you my dear, what I have in store for you this year.


You're 24 don't despise it, You're 24 don't try and hide it. Maybe your 24, you say you don't know who you are, but right now you know more than you have ever known before.

Today you are loved and that's really all that matters!
Track Name: Dimensions
Your eyes have never seen, your ears have never heard, Your mind cannot conceive, your little heart will never quite learn the dimensions of, the dimensions of my love.

Wipe the tears away from your eyes, drive the fear away from your mind. You have no idea how safe you really are. Believe what I say is true, I am coming back for you. Baby if you only knew how soon, how soon

Your eyes have never seen, your ears have never heard, Your mind cannot conceive, your little heart will never quite learn the dimensions of, the dimensions of my love.

Wipe the tears away from your eyes, drive the fear away from your mind. You have no idea how safe you really are. Believe what I say is true, I am coming back for you. Baby if you only knew how soon, how soon

Where i'm going you can't follow, Where i'm going you can't see, If I go then I will come back, Take you there to be with me. Do not let your hearts be troubled, Trust the Father, trust in me. And on his land i'll build our mansion, That where I am you will also be, where I am you will also be.
