Something's moving Like the wind that's blowing And the trees are dancing With their colors flowing Can you feel it moving Feel it moving There are days my heart can't see through it all There are days my heart can't find you Something's moving Like the snow that's falling And the seasons changing With the mountains calling Can you feel it moving Feel it moving There are days my heart can't see through it all There are days my heart can't find Will you come close Come close, come near Will you speak strong Speak strong and clear There are days my heart can't see through it all Something's moving In my heart that's growing And my soul is laughing With the love that's rising Can you feel it moving I can feel it move Through the great unknowing I will follow hoping Though my heart is aching And my eyes are swelling Every day that's dawning I can hear you calling Something's moving Something's moving

Breathe Love 05:26
It was breath That filled my lungs And every breath I breathe in love I breathe in life I breathe in you, God So take a breath Breathe in deep Listen now To my heartbeat Every heartbeat I breathe in you, God Oh, the beauty of this love It holds us all together The wonder of this land The hearts that you have nurtured Oh, let me breathe love We have a hope A sign of comfort We have a chance To love each other One another To love like you, God
3.
Instinct 04:47
I want love to be my instinct I want love to be the first thing Could it be the first thing I want love to be my instinct I want love to be what's moving Could it be what's moving So I'll keep it moving If you'll keep me moving 'Cause I'm sick of fighting I'm always fighting with myself You're so bright I can see the sun and light I can feel the world is changing So bright Even in the darkest night Even when I lose it all I feel you strong You're so bright You're so bright I want love to be my instinct We talk love but it's misleading And we need the real thing
4.
Blame 05:27
I say I can't hear you I'm left alone in the ruins Where are you now Where are you now I will wait here for you I will wait With every weight I sink under With every hit, I'm losing cover Where are you now Where are you now I will wait here for you I will wait I blame you, God But I know it's me I've been running for years Still you've been there chasing me I blame you, God But I know it's me, it's me, it's me If I could open my eyes I would see you in the subtle light Where am I now Where am I now I've been gone I've been blind I've been gone Oh my God will I make it There's nowhere to go, and I can't fake it I need you now I need you now I will wait here for you I will wait
5.
It's time to be real Can I be real with you Like I've wanted to It's time to be real It's time to be real Can I share things with you Like I've wanted to Like I'm supposed to do And we both know I'm scared Scared of knowing the truth They say there's hell to pay if we're not okay And we both know I've tried But I'm missing, missing something I hope we're wrong about you It's time to be real God I can't let go of you If I wanted to It's time to be real It's time to be real God I see what people do When they're scared to move Defenses fill the room I don't know how to talk to you I don't know which words to use I don't know what to say but I'm here I don't know how to please you I don't know which words are true I don't know what to do but I'm here
6.
Over and over, I repeat Those words that haunt me They say their lies, foul play But over and over They play, over and over They play, over and over Can we find some room Deep inside where love can bloom Beneath the scars, the pain But over and over They play, over and over They play, over and over But what if it's true, you are loved What if it's true, you are worth much more More than you know What if it's true, a God of love Who sees straight through Through the pain We are not alone Tell me it's true (over and over)
7.
Curses 05:06
When am I going to Lose that grip that has kept me under A certain point of view A crippling cord that has stopped my wonder It's coming for me now And I'm not sure I can stand on my own I'm reaching for the past 'Cause even all my fear I can live through my curses When am I going to Own my own skin with all its features I like to pick and choose The side of me that you can hold onto It's coming for me now And I'm not sure I can stand on my own I'm reaching for the past 'Cause even all my fear I can live through my curses
8.
Meadowlark sing your song I will try to sing along Meadowlark you can fly Spread your wings and dry your eyes Who made the morning And the evening calls your name So come out of your hiding And embrace a brand new day Meadowlark look inside See the truth behind the lie Beauty grows, it’s growing still Every spring, it always will Time will be the healer And will make your story strong Your heart, ever the dreamer Will provoke the morning song
9.
Old Friend 04:04
Hey there It's been some time I needed to figure out All that's been running in my mind Old friend You look well I have a few words that I Have been needing to tell you You see I'm not mad anymore Although I gave you the blame I was fooled, good intentions I thought I needed to be saved We have a storied past I took the good with the bad But always knew it wouldn't last You see I'm not sad anymore Though I've been holding the tears I was full of expectations Thought it was simple and clear I need, I needed I needed you You to be real When I need, when I needed Back when I needed you You to be real Thought I needed, thought I needed Thought I needed you You to be real I don't need, I don't need you I don't need you to be
10.
Can we look past the ways Can we look past what history has painted for us Or we'll repeat it all Can we break all the rules Can we break all the rules in light of love In light of love The only thing I know is that we're one and the same Sifting through the dirt I hope that we'll find The beauty of it all Can we open our eyes Can we open our eyes for the whole world We only have one Can we look in our hearts Can we look in our hearts and make room for more For everyone The only thing I know is that we're one and the same Sifting through the dirt and pushing through the pain When it all comes down I hope that we'll find The beauty of it all
