Track Name: Freedom
staying true to himself and what he believes
staying true to himself and what he believes
finding grace in mercy with a heart and soul
finding grace and mercy won't seem to let go
finding grace sufficient for this heavy heavy load
as he walks this storyline still left untold

that's when he gets down on his knees let freedom ring
for doubted honesty and cost let freedom ring
for all that he did ever do let freedom ring
he will surpass what he has lost let freedom ring

chains won't confine him anymore after the dawn
still with a glad heart he will keep on keeping on
and he will hum the lyrics to this victory song
till he passes over to the great beyond

and come that great morning we all can share
and come that great morning lay down his wares
tell it sweet sweet morning through the worst of fears
tell it sweet sweet morning for the coming years
will not forsake the righteous road he’s traveled on
man not asunder from the wonder of his home

and i know all truth about him let freedom ring
how he owns eternal hope let freedom ring
how he'll give everything for you let freedom ring
oh he's coming home real soon let freedom ring
let praise erupt inside of you let freedom ring
let freedom ring freedom ring freedom ring (x3)
Track Name: Grace Colorado
oh her smile i did know
and her the grace that i let go
to sing myself a different tune
something new
oh but hurting her wish i didn't do

everybody wants to find somebody
make them feel like they're the only one
why do i feel like i'm the only body
with broken heart when its said and done

she the Grace of Colorado
and me the boy can't Shake the Shadow
late night talks pacing the blue room
she's funny too
held on tight didn't make it through

everybody wants to find somebody
make them feel like they're the only one
why do i feel like i'm the only body
with broken heart when its said and done

everyboyd wants to ride the Lightning
in the wires when its just begun
then slide to sweet abandon
am I just another one

and I fall away
I don't know which way to go
still I fall away (and I'm left here all alone)
And I think sometimes
why won't it flow
what's wrong with me
I don't know

out my rearview window
she a light did help me grow
older now and wiser too, at least i think so
every now and then i still think of you

her the Grace i let go
Track Name: Beloved
sidewalk sweep, paper dust
collecting words as if I must
a little salvation in a moment's glory
passing on it's way with blind trust

coffee stains, rag dolls
arguing mirrors up in these halls
washing my life in the same old color
recognizing loss when it calls . . . again
again

find me awake
find me awake
turning name after name
and golden statues
the worth of a soul shouldn't burn with matches
Voice in the roar
call me beloved
call me beloved


washing my life in the same old color
recognizing loss when it calls . . . again
again

find me awake
find me awake
turning name after name
and golden statues
the worth of a soul shouldn't burn with matches
Voice in the roar

find me awake
find me awake
turning name after name
and golden statues
the worth of a soul shouldn't burn with matches
Voice in the roar
call me beloved
call me beloved
Track Name: You Move
For in the morning I won’t hesitate
All yesterday made me beg and wait on you
But I like the things you do
You do

Two steps forward you take one step back
Then you smirk and I’m on attack its true
I like the way you move
You move

And I call it a love that lacks simplicity
its gonna be gonna be alright yeah
And when its hard it takes a toll on me, invariably
But when it shines it feels so fine
and hope pervades my soul and mind
I know we’ll find our way quite naturally
naturally


Late in the morning and its getting warm
You float on past how I adore that form, its true
I like the way you move
You move

We talk a while and you give a grin
I realize just how long its been, with you
I like the things you do
You do

And I call it a love that lacks simplicity
its gonna be gonna be alright yeah
And when its hard it takes a toll on me, invariably
But when it shines it feels so fine
and hope pervades my soul and mind
I know we’ll find our way quite naturally
naturally

you move
you move
you move
Track Name: Shades of Blue
Where do we go from here?
Your soulful eyes don't appear quite sincere
As the morning light breaks through
Illuminating the room in shades of blue

And where are the promises you keep
Hung in the air your words seem incomplete
of the honesty I seek
That has always kept me closely bound to you

Are there days beyond this scene
When this choice will be redeemed for the two

ooooo

Where do we go from here?
You drink your coffee with a slight taste of fear
Oh of what I just might do
The plans you made will have to start anew

Uncertainty now fills the space
Tainting our song with inexplicable disgrace
I didn't want this for you
Deep down I know you feel the same way too

But what you did the other night
Cut to the core, do we say goodbye?

oooooo

Sorry to wake you up my love
Sorry to wake you up
Track Name: Almost, So Close
Almost, so close, I almost love you 2x

The curve of your chin
That syrupy grin
Those eyes that like to linger on my face
You lack all pretension
There’s no fear to mention
Every compliment that’s walking through your mind

Almost, so close, I almost love you 2x

You kind of surprised me
Your words so inviting
The ones I think I always want to hear
On paper you’re lovely
I’m trying but struggling
To conjure up the suitable the response

Almost, so close, I almost love you 2x

So here’s to hoping I’m wrong
I’ll keep on playing along
I’ve been on your side of the table
Just say something real
Disagree if you will
Don’t try to be who I want you to be

Almost, so close, I almost love you 4x

Ladadadadadadada, the way you touch my hand
Ladadadadadadada, try to understand
Ladadadadadadada, your confessions are so grand
Ladadadadadadada, I was nearly moved

Almost, so close, I almost love you 4x
Almost, so close, I almost love you baby
Track Name: Battle Hymn
Here I stand Lord Almighty Here I stand
Here I stand Lord Almighty Here I stand
Won't you please take me to the Promised Land
Oh until you take me home Here I stand

That place called hell ya know don't bother me no more
Pretty sure I walked right through yeah been there before
A thousand fall arrows fly I am a phantom brought to life
Here I stand Here I stand

Here I stand Lord Almighty Here I stand
Here I stand Lord Almighty Here I stand
Won't you please take me to the Promised Land
Oh until you take me home Here I stand

Fear creeping in my head, yeah keeps me awake
Dark shadow in the valley oh my sweet soul to take
Hard and fast up mountain high all of my sins been washed aside
Here I stand Here I stand

Here I stand Lord Almighty Here I stand
Here I stand Lord Almighty Here I stand
Won't you please take me to the Promised Land
Oh until you take me home Here I stand

And I sing this Battle Hymn
Moving toward the light
For the war does rage within
Bless me for the fight
Now we sing this Battle Hymn
In day or dead of night
Please forgive what I have been

Here I stand Lord Almighty Here I stand
Here I stand Lord Almighty Here I stand
Won't you please take me to the Promised Land
Oh until you take me home
Here I stand Lord Almighty Here I stand
Here I stand Lord Almighty Here I stand
Won't you please take me to the Promised Land
Oh until you take me home
Oh until you take me home
Oh until you take me home Here I stand
Track Name: Beauty in the Brokenness
so many hearts, so many eyes
open in the black
circular prayers on shaking lips...in silence
boundaries of reality
void lucid answers
innocence marred and twisted
in shadows
it takes a long stare to see the glow
on a slow turning world the motion
needs perspective

Chorus:
but there's beauty in the brokenness
that screams of a redemption
in a story not concluded
hope is breathing still
blades of love divine are
sawing chords of darkness
revealing beauty in the brokenness


doves cry mourning the abandoned
sunflowers seek the light
hands raise, desperate loss
tears splash, weary from the fight
be ever near
be ever near

Chorus (x2)
Track Name: Paramour
Paramour

You slipped thru the back gate with your lithe legs all bare
And all your virtue
Up the timber rungs in the biting winter air
Light one are you
Lone shot in the dark caught me unaware
Smooth mischief calling
Astonished by the scene to find you hiding there
Shining blue eyes playfully

I’m glad you came along with gravity turned on
for this game of hide and seek
Some 40 moons ago now buried down below
deep
Love I'm willing to exhume, with help from your perfume
natural & sweet
A cunning witty smile just lingering awhile
comfortable our sleep

Sleep

Hold nigh with heavy arms
Paramour how we collide
is this skinny love or full
What’s it look like when its right?

When its right

I’m glad you came along with gravity turned on
for this game of hide and seek
Some 40 moons ago now buried down below
deep
Love I'm willing to exhume, with help from your perfume
natural & sweet
A cunning witty smile just lingering awhile
comfortable our sleep

Sleep
Track Name: Look In My Eyes
I see you bare
And bleeding there
The key is in the lock
But that cell is kind of soft
Beautiful
Complexity
Your bandaids of liquid
Your bandaids of flesh

Ah Ah Ah, Ah Ah Ah

There’s the clash of war
Under the silence of the room
I’m standing right before you
Don’t turn away too soon
Darkness on the left
Shadows on the right
Pick your head up
Just look in my eyes

I’ll purchase this moment
Here with you
I’ll pay with some scars
If that is the cost

Ah Ah Ah, Ah Ah Ah

There’s the clash of war
Under the silence of the room
I’m standing right before you
Don’t turn away too soon
Darkness on the left
Shadows on the right
Pick your head up
Just look in my …

Hands in your hair, knees to the floor
I’m the one you’re searching for (4x)

There’s the clash of war
Under the silence of the room
I’m standing right before you
Don’t turn away too soon
Darkness on the left
Shadows on the right
Pick your head up
Just look in my eyes

I hear it wounded
But beating still
Stop all that ripping it apart
Just hand it here and let me hold your broken heart

Ah Ah Ah, Ah Ah Ah
Track Name: Ocean Song
rolling down this way on Sunday
the haze is coming into view
one more week until I can play
listening to the waves and you

lightning in a bottle come and find me
I'm dying for escape
moving straight to the one I can be
surrendering the give and take

stay with me
stay with me
stay with me
in the blue
in the blue
