Track Name: Feel Like Me
try to take your time
try to pour yourself into what you do
no one else can tell you where your story
wants to lead you

now youve come so far
and you feel so strong and so inspired
take a moment just to feel the love thats
been there all along

and ill go on breathin
and ill keep on believin
and i’ll hold on to those who make me
feel like feel like me

there are several kinds of love
one is grasping and egotistical
but another pours out from a place of
goodness pure and strong

so dont rush yourself
you can trust your tummy more than your mind
there’s a journey up ahead and it will
bring you to the right one

so ill go on breathin
and ill keep on believin
and i’ll hold on to those who make me
feel like feel like me

oh east of the garden, west of the rocky mountains
north of the desert, south of some great plane

oh ill go on breathin...
Track Name: This Time Around
can’t you hear your heart a cryin
can’t you hear your heart aloud
aren’t you cravin something different
than what you’ve found

blood is coursing through your fingers
and the doors are open wide
wakin up at 6am
nothing weighin down your miiiiind

oh god what have I done
after all those battles lost and won
I will hold my life in my own damn hands
this time around, this time around

now you’ve broken through the barrier
and everything looks clean and clear
all that clutter down the drain
nowhere else to be but here

and in the distance there’s a magnet
and its pull is strong and deep
but all you have to do is stand up straight
keeping steady on your feet
Track Name: Battle Cries
the meadow smelled like sweetgrass
the air was still but even so
the leaves were shaking on the trees
the leaves were shaking on the trees

and in the sky the moon rose up
to show us for a moment what it
looked like in the copper light
looked like in the copper

fleeting ephemeral, becoming indelible

and we knew, we knew the brightness in our open eyes
and we knew, we knew the rightness in our battle cries

in the morning dawn washed in
bits of grass still on our skin
reminders of the truth we found
reminders of the truth we found

summer almost dead and gone
but all that light still burning on
grew stronger in the autumn chill
stronger in the autumn

fleeting ephemeral, becoming indelible
fleeting ephemeral...
Track Name: Ready or Not
it starts as quiet as a whisper in your ear
but soon it grows so loud there’s nothing you can hear

and then you fall to the ground behind your guard
never thought you could see here in the dark

give it one more shot, give it all you’ve got
whether you think you’re ready or not
give it one more shot, give it all you’ve got
whether you think you’re ready ready or not

you never used to feel this way
when you were young
but now you’re living for a dream
you could become

and then you fall to the ground behind your guard
never thought you could see here in the dark

give it one more shot, give it all you’ve got
whether you think you’re ready or not
give it one more shot, give it all you’ve got
whether you think you’re ready ready or not

ready you’re ready you’re ready
Track Name: Gonna Stay Free
on the top of a mountain
you can do anything you want
on the top of a mountain
you can say it all and say it loud

in the middle of a river
you can make the world your own
in the middle of a river
you can celebrate your sound

oh gonna be me gonna be me
gonna be you gonna be you
gonna stay free gonna stay free
gonna stay true gonna stay true

on the edge of an ocean
you can learn the impossible
on the edge of an ocean
you can hold the intangible

in the depths of a valley
you can feel the sun so warm
in the depths of a valley
love is in you when youre born
Track Name: How We Live
there are moments in our lives
when we’re open and we find
that is all we really need in love

and each time we just let go
there is kindness and we know
that is all we need to feel in love

cus how we love is how we live
so hold those hands and all they give

i’ve seen comfort i’ve seen truth
i’ve seen beauty and i’ve seen new
and i see all of that and more in you

cus how we love is how we live
so hold those hands and all they give
Track Name: Que Sera Sera
when i was just a little girl
i asked my mother what will i be
will i be pretty will i be rich
here's what she said to me

que sera, sera
whatever will be, will be
the future's not ours to see
que sera, sera

when i grew up and fell in love
i asked my sweetheart what lies ahead
will we have rainbows day after day
here's what my sweetheart said

now i have children of my own
they ask their mother what will i be
will I be handsome will i be rich
i tell them tenderly
Track Name: Always Will
there’s a crack in the glass that holds the photograph
baby on his knee 1983
he looks tired and young, skinny and dumb
he would sing a lullabye when that baby’d start cry

he’d sing i cant sleep tonight without saying this to you
cant close my eyes without you knowin
its always been love, its always been love
its always been and it always will be

there was a note on her door when she got home from store
they had left it kinda loose, both so afraid to lose
and as she began to read, she dropped the groceries
it had only been six weeks but he was not afraid to speak

he wrote - i cant sleep at night without saying this to you
i cant close my eyes without you knowin
its always been love, its always been love
its always been and it always will be

now there’s a chill in the air and all his grandkids are there
he’s lying on his bed, her hand upon his head
and the moment is near, so she holds back a tear
he sees it in her eye, breathes to speak one more time

and he says i won’t leave you tonight without saying this to you
won’t close my eyes without you knowin
its always been love, its always been love
its always been and it always will (x2)
its always been and it always will be
