Track Name: Salty Seas
Salty seas
Breeze that rolls to let it go, let it go, let go
Taste all the sounds and move like a honey bee
In this afternoon light that we see

Caught a little glimpse
Of his soul, his soul, his soul, his soul
Bend a little time
In day dream

Salty seas
We fall in to fit the beat
Resting in shadows to hide from the heat
Wave after wave, we’re released

Caught a little sight
Of his soul, his soul, his soul, his soul,
Spend a little time in daydream


And by starlight
We are so exposed
With your sails in sight
I am so vulnerable

And by midnight
The moon calls in haste
To illuminate
Every star we chased

Caught a little sight
Of his soul, his soul, his soul, his soul,
Spend a little time in daydream

Caught a little sight
Of his soul, his soul, his soul
Spend a little time in daydream
Track Name: Tide of Your Time
You’re not alone, in this story
There’s still space for you to fly
And though it seems you’re always falling
You’re out of love, not out of time

Like a wine you’re still maturing
And one day, you’ll qualify
But today feels like the jury
Is out of town not out of your mind

Chorus
Take my hand and lead me beside
The still waters in the peace of your mind
Take my hand and lead me beside
The forgiveness in the tide of your time

With no regrets you keep on dreaming
You’re limitless in all their eyes
You’d steal a kiss if you could remember
Those balmy days in summer time

Chorus
Take my hand lead me beside
The still waters in the peace of your mind
Take my hand and lead me beside
The forgiveness in the tide in your time

Will you believe what your memory tells you?
Thoughts ablaze in the cool of the day
Oh you sent me flying into sonnets and solace
How you think you’re just a passing memory

Chorus
Take my hand lead me beside
The still waters in the peace of your mind
Take my hand and lead me beside
The forgiveness in the tide in your time

Ending:
Call me to you, Call me to you
Track Name: Into Gold
Into Gold

He’s taking all the pieces, time now to release them
He taking all the pieces of his past
They circle all around him, a shimmering surrounding
They circle all around him

Melt them down, melt them down
Into Gold, where the fire burns in the fathom of the blue
Let it go, Let it Be
Let it flow to the moon, from the echo of your youth

He’s happy walking by now
Following all he knows is good
Trouble will come when he uncovers
All of the things for which he stood

She’s taking her surroundings, All that will astound her
She’s taking her surroundings, place them in His hands
Circle all around her, she’s on holy ground now
Circle all around her…

She gave love and let it go, then she turned Into Gold,
where the fire burns in the fathom of the blue
Keep a hold of it, Hold on to it
Like a brave child, when you’re standing on your truth

She’s happy walking free now
Hunger for wild days is restored
Beauty made a way through
To take all of the shame that she held to

Where’s the meaning, of it all?
Let’s fall Into Gold in the fathom of the blue
There’s no end, there’s no end
Though we don’t understand, there’s a beauty in the blue

We’re happy walking by now
Hunger for wild days is restored
His Beauty brought us home to
Cure all of the pain that we’ve been through

Walking away from what we knew
Every day from here is new
I don’t understand but I know he’s good
Track Name: Children
High and living life, just like we dreamed
Searching for some reason and meaning
Shepherd me along, I’m in need of love
Hold your arms, open wide, so that I, can fall into your day dream

Disillusioned minds will tear the seams
Of all of heaven’s stores of happy memories
Where did all the time and childhood go?
We would be, so free, dreaming, safe and sound till morning

Children carry us we have
Fallen too far to return without you
Children carry us
Infuse all the colours of life into us once again

Standing in her yellow dress, with those small red shoes
Stories until she sleeps, she’ll cherish dad for those
We are breakable, I feel it in my soul
Yet we stand on shoulders of those who boldly went before us

Children carry us we have
travelled too far to return without you
Children carry us
Infuse all the colours of life into us once again

Children carry us
We have travelled too far to return without you
Children we all will rise and
Carry the mantle of faith to the skies for you

We’re better together where we can paint of his love forever
with brushes worn with life and suffering
till Beauty will restore us
Track Name: In Your Arms
People are so cold
No time on their hands
To stop and remember to talk
I never let you know
Just how much your worth
Now the world has stolen our time

All your hope
You need to know
That these arms
Will hold you

People abandon their shelter and run
Fear takes their homes, takes their sons
I miss the time in the warmth of your love
You miss the light that will come

Time is a healer
That’s what they will say
But nothing healed you this far
When you find someone
Who knows you like this
You keep them safe and don’t let them run

All your hope
You need to know
That these arms
Will hold you

People are so cold no time on their hands
To stop and remember to talk
But when I see him I know we will reflect
The glory he gave on that day / Through all of the glory he gave
Track Name: Lair of the Fox
He moves, in shadows, underground
He speaks, so smooth, when you’re around
He inspires, the rolling of war
You admire his view, you want more

Hunter, narrow your sugared eyes
Thunder, breathes slow, across your sky
To inspire the rolling of war
He admires your soul, and he wants more

Deafening roars, shake your shores
Stand strong, in this Trojan war

The wind has wings, that beat and brew
The sounds of drums, still follow you
While he laces his words, you adore
Still the smoke stings your eyes, but you explore

Deafening roars, shake your shores
Stand strong, in this Trojan war

Captive you fell into his charm
Astounded you found a love so rare
Softly he seemed to do no harm
Run before your glory fades

Deafening roars, shake your shores
Stand strong, in this Trojan war
Track Name: The Storm Cries Encore
If I could fall in love with you
There’ll be a revolution
Inside our star filled minds
At this moment you decide to slide
Into the observations
We hide behind our eyes

Thunder rolls the night into
Your realm of conversation
Where clouds and sounds entwine
Walking home we let the rain
Soak through the constellations
We thought would guide our lives

Will you be here with me
At the end of the day?
Just for a time we’ll be
In heavenly peace

Heavy waves will pound you down until the revelation
Bursts through your cloud-filled mind
Paper in your hands folds you
Into a generation
That flows against the tide

Will you be here with me
At the end of the day?
Just for a time we’ll be
In heavenly peace

Holding on while we run
The storm cries ‘encore’
Ten thousand oceans chased
To find your shore

These days, we still gaze, at the sky These days we try but we fail to fly
These days we can’t be, what we need to be,
These days we’re free, but our eyes don’t see

Will you be here with me
At the end of the day?
Just for a time we’ll be
In heavenly peace

Holding on while we run
The storm cries ‘encore’
Ten thousand oceans chased
To find your shore

Will you be here with me
At the end of the day?
Just for a time we’ll be
In heavenly peace

Holding on while we run
The storm cries ‘encore’
Ten thousand oceans chased
To find your shore
Track Name: Flood
Those tender memories
Kept locked away
Tumble like tangle weed
Through years decayed

The light appeared so fast
Come see with me
Spread like a canopy
o’er the sky

It’s ever rising, this flood,
overtakes the danger
But you’ve gone down in flames
You disappeared in the smoke on the battlefield
Lost beneath the waves
But I’ll find you, draw you…

Next to me. You’ll come home
I will search horizons
Conquer mountains and seas
To know that you are free

String holds you fast together
Tender and strong
Silk threads are weaving you
Above the ground

It’s ever rising, this flood
Overtakes the danger, but you’ve gone down in flames
I don’t even know you, I only want to hold you
Understand you’re pain
I’ll find you, and paint you…

Lonely warrior, I follow all the lines
Places you have been
Lonely warrior, my fingertips will trace
Over tracks of time, to cover you in
Grace. And I’ll find you, draw you…
Track Name: Hideaway
Trouble moves in my head
Seeks to conquer the still
Staggering as we tred
The roads the kingdom calls us to instead

Miles and miles and miles of posies
Till He comes
Hideaway with you till sunrise
Till He comes
Anchored safe within your shores
Till He comes

Find a rose on my wall
Stirring up a gentle flame
Find the place to give it all
Drawing circles …..in your hands

Miles and miles and miles of posies
Till He comes
Hideaway with you till sunrise
Till He comes
Anchored safe within your shores
Till He comes

Carry me
In your arms
I need your peace
Take me in
It’s so cold, Please let your warmth
Encompass me

Miles and miles and miles of posies
Till He comes
Hideaway with you till sunrise
Till He comes
Anchored safe within your shores
Till He comes
Track Name: Let Us Be
Let us be, let us be free to sleep in peace, Let us be, Let us be
Let us dream, let us dream that together we’ll find our freedom, let us dream, let us dream

Take us high so we fly like a dove in the face of your hostility
Even when all is said, all is done
Beautify our demise as we stand in the shadow of captivity
And we’re faced with the end of your gun

Butterflies help us rise, and fall like the birds in the sky, when we find mothers crying
All the eyes, that are blind, they’ll pass us by, with the world, till they find your disguises

Let us be, let us be free to sleep in peace, Let us be, Let us be
Let us dream, let us dream that together we’ll find our freedom, let us dream, let us dream

Take us high so we fly like a dove singing desolated melodies
Even when all is said and done
Pacify all our cries as we stand in the shadow holding dignity
And we’re faced with the end of your gun

Butterflies help us rise, holding our minds, all the time, till we find children dying
We don’t buy all the lies of your compromise, we hold the line, tell us why you deny us

We’re spinning, spinning, spinning faster
Falling, falling, falling harder
The children, become so much darker when you rule
We’re spinning, spinning, spinning faster,
You punish, punish, punish harder
The children have lost all their fathers by your hands

Let us be, let us be free to sleep in peace, Let us be, Let us be
Let us dream, let us dream that together we’ll find our freedom, let us dream, let us dream
Track Name: Run River
Yesterday I fell in love with the world
Yesterday I found my place in the world

There’s an ache my heart that seeps through skin and lingers on
And it started to sing on the day that I left behind, my Father’s home

Time slips by, slowly, while this age will fade away
I see mistakes, but they don’t own me, anymore

He loosened the cords, that held me to
The end of the score that we danced to

Everyday I fall in love with the world
Everyday I look for space in the world

As I fall down again I wonder why we must be so incomplete
Then I hear all the echoes that still resonate in me of Eden

The mountain shapes, will fool you, from this view, let’s make them smooth
Take your time, to reawaken, tenderly, my soul from sleep

Run river on, to flow between
The past to the song that lives in me
