Track Name: Something's Moving
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
Track Name: Breathe Love
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
Track Name: Instinct
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
Track Name: Blame
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
Track Name: Wrong About You
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
Track Name: Over and Over
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)
Track Name: Curses
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
Track Name: Meadowlark (feat. Aaron Sternke)
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
Track Name: Old Friend
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
Track Name: The Beauty of It All
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
