Track Name: Fireflies
Fireflies

Beyond the door to which you've spoken
Your heartbeat knocks at it to open
Each minute, every day
Already on your way there, there there

If you build a dream, let it come true
If you build a dream, let it come true
If you build a dream, let it build you, yeah

Some of us glow because we're made to
Others of us glow 'cause we have to see
Each minute, every day
Already on our way,
One foot after the next step gets closer

If you build a dream, let it come true
If you build a dream, let it come true
If you build a dream, let it build you, yeah

Doesn't mean it's gonna be easy
Doesn't mean it's got to be hard
Every step is one step further
Steppin to the beat of your drum

If you build a dream, it will build you, yeah
Track Name: Come On Over
Come On Over

I wanna know when she's comin ‘round, I like to see her smile
Brings me a song a feather, too, she know just what to do
Ooo, come on over, Ooo, I want your sweet, sweet smilin’

Plants in the fall and she plants in the spring, she's always growin'
Picks pretty things from a forest stroll, beautiful seeds we've sown

So break me off a piece and grab me a bunch
Diggin' in her garden, yeah I love to munch
Up above the ground, good things growin' up
Little bit a oil and a whole lotta love
Ooo, come on over, Ooo, I want your sweet, sweet smilin',
Ooo, I want you closer

We always find our sweet selves laughing, we squeeze the fruit to make it so, oh oh oh
Yeah we know, that we'll grow

So break me off a piece and grab me a bunch
Diggin' in her garden, yeah I love to munch
Up above the ground, good things growin' up
If it dies, I know it grows again, over and over again
Ooo, won't ya come on over, I want your sweet, sweet smile

Every mornin' in the pourin' rain (I want your sweet, sweet lovin')
Hold me close I'm home again (I want your sweet, sweet smile)
Stay with me and the sun will rise (I want your sweet, sweet lovin')
On the edge of the world tonight (I want your sweet, sweet love)
In the mornin' will it be the same? (I want your sweet, sweet lovin')
Girl, ya know, I'll never stop feelin' you this way
Track Name: Finally Here
Finally Here

Miles and miles and miles of highway
Trials and trials have been my path
Pressing on with no direction
Through the fire, the smoke and ash

Tears, my tears have rained with sorrow
Cursed each day with every breath
Now here I stand with new tomorrows
I've been lost but found at last

And the heavens say "yeah!"
And the preacher says "amen!"
And the angels say "where,
Where the hell have you been?"
With arms wide open we'll all be there
Welcome home you're finally here

Piece by piece I started over
Step by step I made my way
All you said was just keep going
Don't give up, it's not too late

And the heavens say "yeah!"
And the preacher says "amen!"
And the angels say "where,
Where the hell have you been?"
With arms wide open we'll all be there
Welcome home you're finally here

I was broken, well, I've been saved
Words unspoken made me whole amazing grace
Now here I am my song I'm singing
Raise my voice for all to hear
Your sweet, sweet love my sweet redemption
I can hear you loud and clear

And the heavens say "yeah!"
And the preacher says "amen!"
And the angels say "where,
Where the hell have you been?"
And the heavens say "yeah!"
And the preacher says "amen!"
And the angels say "where,
Where the hell have you been?"
With arms wide open we'll all be there
Welcome home you're finally here
Track Name: Already Over
Already Over

Sign your name
Isn't this what you want?

Sign your name
Isn't this what you wanted?
It's too late
Don't bother hiding they're already asking
Take me to your wreckage,
Is this all you've built?
Resist, repeat that you think that you fear,
It's already over and I fear,
It was up to me

It's alright
But maybe you should have stayed
If it's last call
Don't bother no one,
They know where you're goin'

'Cause I fear,
It's already over and I fear,
It was up to me and I fear,
It's already over and I fear,
It was up to me
Track Name: Assalaam Alaykum
Assalaam Alaykum

All I want, walking your streets
Is to see your wounded whole
Make your lovelies smile again

I want to buy it, I called your fake

Make peace with him who wronged me,
Who wronged me
Assalaam Alaykum

Step by step, through the shadows
Trust is faith your word is whole
Wait for me, change is coming

I want to buy it, I called your fake

Make peace with him who wronged me,
Who wronged me
Assalaam Alaykum

I'll find you,
I'll find you in the dark again
You in the darkness,
I'll find you in the dark again

We both are far from home
We're both still so alone
Track Name: Levon (or the bees)
Levon (or the bees)

Levon, can you beat that drum
Tap your toes, shake your thumbs in three
While jumping from your train
Whistle screamin’ steam refrains
Well I heard your breath was losing air
Life's been buzzing out your hair
The bees, buzzing in your beard
That wiry, sweet gray web of wisdom is

Fear undone, said the battle's won
And you won it proud, it almost cost your life for
Never a word exchanged, sounding out in time
But I swear your secret's safe between your eyes and mine

Shark's teeth tare the ocean sky, ever-changing swells go by
Thousands stiff dead in the sand, forever drowning in dry land
But I now believe it may not last, but drink it all half-empty glasses
Broken shards of happy tears, better to than never have

Fear reruns, said the battle's won
And you won it proud, it cost your life again for
Never a word exchanged, sounding out in time
But I swear your secret's safe between your eyes and mine, mine

Between your eyes and mine, between your arms and mine
Between your hands and mine, between yours and mine
Yours and mine
Track Name: Love Has
Love Has

My love has gone away
And she won't ever be back, no way
I won't let her back in my heart, again
She done wrong me from the start
Ain't it true, and so now I know about love

If she doesn't want my love, oh no
Well then she doesn't get my love, oh no
She just hits me so low, so that I cannot go on in love

All my love has gone away
And it won't ever be back, no way, no
I won't let her back in my heart, no no no
She done wrong me, wrong me, wrong me from the start
And you'd think now I know about her love

If she doesn't want my love, oh no
Well then she doesn't get my love, oh no
It's just woe after woe really I should have known 'bout her love

You better not say ya need it
You better not say you want more and
You, coulda done right to feed it
You shoulda done more for what you knew of love

Love has, love has, love has gone
Love has won, what do you fight it for?
Oh love has won
Track Name: Attention
Attention

Hi, may I get some of your attention?
Can I please get some of your attention?
There is something
I need from you right now

Yeah I lost it long ago
Do you have somewhere to go?
'Cause I'll tell you what

God, can I get some of your attention?
Can you, can't you, won't you hear me?
Open up, shout it out, what's the difference?

Yeah I lost it long ago
Do you have somewhere to go?
'Cause I'll tell you what

Can you?
Yeah I lost it long ago
Don't you have somewhere to go?
'Cause I'll tell you what
(I lost it long ago)
I'll tell you what
(do you have somewhere to go?)
I'll tell you what
(you lost it long ago)
I'll tell you what
Track Name: Rollin' Away
Rollin’ Away

Gotta think you understand,
that I wanna be your man
Yeah I want your hand, baby
Gotta a feelin' that shit gets real,
when you, ya gonna see me deal
Mmm, gonna see me deal, sugar

I wake up in the morning
on a bus back from here to LA
Didn't know how I see you
'til I saw myself roll away

And I feel in the morning and
I feel in the day, feel in the day
And I feel in the evening, said
I, feel you all the way
All the way, all the way

I wake up in the morning
on a bus back from here to LA
Didn't know how I see you 'til
I saw myself roll away
Now I found what I wanted,
it's you, I wanna roll your way
Track Name: In The Raw
In the Raw

In the raw, in the rain
I feel so sorry,
I don't know your name
Come in closer, feel my name
And I know you’re here,
Now I know that same voice

In the sea, in the waves
In the sand, and I'm crawling again
For the love of the flame
Then I feel so sorry,
I know your name

Through the storm or the pain
Wind so wild, but the eye is tame
Will you thrash, will you learn
Will you see your hopes
As they watch you burn

See the shore, you're the rain
Wonder what they called your name
And you tear from the flame
Of your broken soul
let it feel again
Oh your broken soul
Let it feel again
Let it feel again
Let it
Track Name: Please, If I Fall
Please, If I fall

Lost inside the invisible rip tide
Crashing this vessel I'm in
Can't sink down
And won't accept that I'm drowning
I've got to make it out alive

Oh, well I know that I can do it
But do I push myself through it?
These waves are so heavy on my mind
Am I just dyin to survive?

Catch me, catch me, please if I fall
Catch me, catch me, please if I fall
Lift me, lift me, high, high

My hands are still shaking
(no I have not gone yet)
But my heart is still beating
(and I'm still here)
For you, for you, for you

Catch me, catch me, please if I fall
Catch me, catch me, please if I fall
Lift me, lift me, high, high
