Feel Like Me 03:32
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...

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

Battle Cries 04:06
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...

Ready or Not 03:06
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

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

How We Live 02:50
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

Always Will 03:58
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
