Dear Beloved 04:06
Dear beloved it’s been a long road and we’ve made the best of it We built a log home out of mud and branches We’ve made it through we’ve held our own Dear beloved we stood for love when others had none of it Buried our faith and built our lives above it We fought the fight we won the war I forget sometimes all we’ve left behind We’ve walked miles and miles, we’ve got miles to go There’s no turning back, there’s no giving up We’ve seen way too much and there’s miles ahead Dear beloved there are no words and I can’t make light of it To tell you just how much I truly love you You are my fire, you are my soul Dear beloved time is a thief but baby we’ve got more of it Let’s keep on living like we really want it I’ll be the push you be the pull We walked out on the water without a clue to what we were doing Baby it’s you and I in the middle of the sea We walked out on the ocean without a rhyme or without a reason Baby it’s you and I and we’re making history

I was born a mountain man I went up and came back down I walked along the river Sun like gold and moon like silver I grew up a wanderer Out of dust and back to dirt I moved along the river Sun like gold and moon like silver Oh sweet journey Use your voice and call out to me Tell my body where my heart should be Oh sweet journey I became a redwood Far above the earth is where I stood I grew along the river Sun like gold and moon like silver I’ve become a mountain I go up and I descend I’ve got roads and rivers Sun like gold, moon like silver Oh sweet mystery You’re a million miles beyond me I walked along your river Sun like gold and moon like silver I was made with gold beneath my skin I’m silver deep within There’s gold beneath my skin

On My Mind 04:13
I’ve got so much on my mind So much I can’t help but run and hide There’s so much hurt inside each one of us So we do what we must Just to try to get by To try and survive Anything to feel love 'cause there’s never enough And there never will be 'til we realize We’re the healers there’s light in our bones If we just use our hands, if we just use our lungs To speak light in the world, to show love to our foes To make peace with the earth and breathe life in her bones I’ve got so much on my mind So much I can’t help but run and hide There’s so much fear inside each one of us So we do what we must Just to try to get by To try and survive Anything to feel love 'cause there’s never enough And there never will be 'til we realize There’s so much light inside each one of us If we’d learn how to trust Just to go with our gut and move forward in love Anything to feel love 'cause there’s never enough And there never will be 'til we realize I’ve got so much on my mind I’ve got so much on my mind

Maybe we’ve gone too far Past the road, past the garden Comfort covered our hearts We got old, we got stubborn A fading light in the dark Covered over, barely burning We set the forest on fire and then we watched it burn cold Maybe if the night could call our name we would listen Maybe if the sun could do the same we would come home Maybe if our eyes could see the pain deep inside of every human being Maybe if the night could call our name we would change Maybe we’ve grown too strong Unaware of our weakness Comfort covered our lungs Out of breath, out of mind A fading beat of the heart Doubled over, barely breathing We set our forest on fire and then we watched it burn cold Maybe if the night could call our name we would listen to what it had to say Maybe if the sun could do the same we would come home Maybe if our eyes could see the pain deep inside of every human being Maybe if the night could call our name we would change Maybe if our eyes could see the pain deep inside of every human being Maybe if the night could call our name we would change We would change

Baby the nights are getting warmer Baby the nights are holding strong Let’s stay outside a little longer, longer Let’s stay outside til morning comes Baby we made it through the winter Baby we held on through the storm Let’s keep on living like we’re meant to Let’s keep on living like we’re young I know I’ve got everything that I want right here with you We’ve spent too many years trying to work through our fear But now I’ve found you You’re beautiful without your armor I’m beautiful without my gun Our weaknesses have made us stronger, stronger Our weaknesses have kept us young

To all my friends and family To all of you who loved me I love you too I am thankful for you To all of you who cared for me Through years of joy and tragedy I love you too I am thankful for you I’ve been on my own for the last few years Been on my own for the last few years Been on my own for the last few years For the last few years I’ve been on my own To all my friends and family I’m different than I used to be But after all I’ve been through I’m still thankful for you I’ve seen some things I can’t unsee The darkness hiding underneath But after all I’ve been through I’m still thankful for you

I got what I came for I got what I needed I swear to god that I got everything that I wanted Baby there’s no crying Baby don’t be scared I swear to god if you need anything I’ll come running I don’t want to say goodbye I don’t want to make you cry I’m falling asleep and I can’t keep my eyes on you Baby just you and I Keep living til we die Keep living baby You know that I love you You know that I care I swear to god that you know everything I’ve been thinking and feeling Baby we’re all dying Baby we’re all scared I swear to god if we’re all anything we’re all living and breathing

When I die, when I pass away I hope that somewhere deep inside you build a place for me I hope I helped you to feel better 'bout yourself, better 'bout yourself When I’m gone, when I’ve met the earth I hope the fire I built inside of you since childbirth It keeps you warm, it keeps you warm When I die make me a tree You could rest beneath my leaves Use my arms to hang a swing on for your children Let my colors mark the season Let my spirit give you reason To keep living like you mean it Yeah to keep on keepin' on While you’re young Make the best of life Don’t get all hung up on the questions of the afterlife For heaven's sake, live for today And when you’re older When your body aches Make sure to get out of your head and try to misbehave It keeps you young It keeps you young But I don’t want to die If it means leaving my family behind If it means I really have to say goodbye I don’t wanna die
9.
Please I would give anything to know If life has any meaning at all I’ve been driving myself crazy Trying to figure it out, just tell me I’ve been searching backroads to find truth Old overgrown railroads to find proof I keep telling myself I’m okay I’m just like everyone else I’m okay I’m okay Please I would give anything to know If life is never ending where do all these people go I keep telling myself just slow down Take a good look around just slow down, slow down Just slow down Slow down There must be something inside of me that drags me on I’m moving full speed ahead and I can’t hold on There must be something inside of me that drags me on I’m moving full speed ahead and I can’t slow down Slow down Just slow down, slow down Just slow down, slow down

Wake up, open your eyes Make sure you’re still alive Time is still on your side Don’t let life pass you by Don’t let this moment pass you by Come out, no more hiding Come on, you’ve still got fight in ya Time is still on your side Don’t let life pass you by 'Cause we’ve all got our dreams, love We’ve all got our things we’re dreaming of Time is still on your side Don’t let life pass you by Don’t let this moment pass you by We’ve all got dreams, love We’ve all got things that we’re dreaming of So follow your dreams, love Follow the things you’ve been dreaming of 'Cause we’ve all got dreams love So follow the things you’ve been dreaming of

I Miss You 02:59
It’s been fun, it’s been real I love all the ways you made me feel It’s been good, it’s been grand I love all the ways you’ve made me sad My heart’s grown sober Now that it’s over I miss you There’s been blood, we’ve waged war I love all the things you, you fought me for 'Cause right where it ends is where it begins I love after all of the shit we’ve been through that we still can be friends
