Track Name: Dear Beloved
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
Track Name: Sun Like Gold / Moon Like Silver
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
Track Name: On My Mind
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
Track Name: Past The Garden
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
Track Name: Without Your Armor
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
Track Name: To All My Friends and Family
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
Track Name: Keep Living 'Til We Die
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
Track Name: Make Me A Tree
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
Track Name: Overgrown Railroads
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
Track Name: We've All Got Dreams
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
Track Name: I Miss You
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
