December 03:31
December for the broken hearted The sun goes down and The city lights are Shining stars on the ground For everyone Rushing home I look out the window but you were gone December is ending So easy to hide away In the busy streets in the night Winds are blowing Snow flakes falling Magic melts in the sky We’d tie our sleds to the trees and make Winter hammocks and lay and watch the Amber snow Our handprints make footprints And footprints make pathways that lead us far from home The city skyline Mimics mountains on The other side of the world I sit silent my mind is drifting On all the things I’ll never know Right in the middle of statues and trees I see the shadow of me Time flashes I’m seventeen I’m in a bookstore on Jackson Street You had to go and let it rest I turned to face a loneliness Kept secret in a blanket only for us

Dream 03:31
Dream for the heavy conscience Sit on a swing reaching up kick the branches high Back and forth just like us we live we die They tell you not to think on it They tell you not to dream of it They tell you not to think on it They tell you not to dream Late at night you take the stairs two at a time The one you hurt still sitting there in the back of your mind They tell you not to think on it They tell you not to dream of it They tell you not to think on it They tell you not to dream But you can dare to dream You can cross a barrier to anything You can dare to dream It’s not your fault when people love you They’re meant to

Fly 02:48
Fly for the faithful I always knew People come and walk right through I’ve got a mat laid out for you You keep your boots and shuffle through You always knew I’ve got wings that you can’t pin down I want to fly but its hard when you’re on the ground I want to fly with you but its hard when you’re on the ground So wake me up when the dream is over Wake me up when the city’s gone blue Wake me up when the building started And I can sleep with you Cause I’d just sleep right through I always knew If I could get you to walk through I’d hide my bells from the outside Hide my bells from the outside And give them only to you I could fly If I wanted to go You and I We both know

He was the dream for the young Yellow daisies And Bare feet I’d come running Whenever we’d meet Heavy blankets On neighborhood streets My long black hair Go twisting around me I know all this time I wasted I know all the places we should go He was the dream He was the dream Raymond Carver’s Sad Stories We’d never forget them We’d never believe All this time We sat and nailed our hearts to the wall And hoped for something I know all this time I felt it I see in the glass we know when it has to end and soon He was the dream He was the dream You come back running I fall on my face I plead for something I plead for grace or something to hold me to love me and teach me…. I know all this time I wasted He’s gone like the wind He’s falling fast He’s taken back He was the dream He was the dream

Run 04:14
Run for the invisible I want to run to you I want to fall I want to run to you I want to fall I’m sorry I hurt you I’m sorry You don’t know what it’s like I’m invisible…see through I’m sorry And no one says it right I want to run to you I want to fall I want to run oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I want to run to you I want to run to you I want to run to you

Stretch the ground for the homeless This is my own light This is your own light This is the world’s light Share it now This is my own voice This is your own voice This is the world’s voice Hear it now Stretch the ground I look down This is your own lie This is my own lie This is the world’s lie I see it now Stretch the ground We all fall down I can see it now I can see it now I can hear it now Your shadow your footsteps they’re all the same I can see it now I can see it now I can hear it now Your shadow your footsteps they’re over me This is my own tear This is your own tear This is the worlds tear Hold it now This is the world’s prayer This is your own prayer This is the my own prayer Hold it now Stretch the ground We all fall down I can see it now I can see it now I can hear it now Your shadow your footsteps they’re all the same I can see it now I can hear it now I can see it now Your shadow your footsteps they’re over me Stretch the ground Hold it now See it now Don’t look down

Tiny 03:49
Tiny for the unborn Tiny Mouse all curled in a moon Stars twinkle around It’s a big world It’s already got you and me So lets let the tiny be Let the tiny be Ferns curl in the forest Life starts when we can’t see Whispers through paths we don’t notice So lets let the tiny be Let the tiny be Oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Ha Ha ha ha I saw you inside you A beautiful dream You could tie us all together With Ribbons and bows and strings Seems not anybody dreams Seems not anybody thinks Seems not anybody sees anything Seems not anybody dreams Seems not anybody thinks Seems not anybody sees anything

He wasn’t sleeping for the forgotten He wasn’t sleeping I stopped dreaming He wasn’t sleeping He wasn’t sleeping oh oh oh oh oh oh He was he wasn’t sleeping He was he wasn’t sleeping He was he wasn’t sleeping He was he wasn’t sleeping I kept quiet It was always around me I was golden Two bands …frozen He was he wasn’t sleeping A heart alone grows cold A heart alone grows cold My words my words were so unkind My words my words were so unkind We drive off in the night We drive off in the night We drive off in the night We drive off in the night We drive

Room 06:10
Room for the peacemaker Maybe someday we won't need to talk Maybe someday it’s all lost Stars overhead and there is love Maybe someday you’ll see there’s room for both of us Maybe some day I walked right through You saw me coming I gave my hand You took it in We smiled and laughed The room was glowing I felt it when you were behind my back You were behind Again and again I walk in the fire Again again I walk right in Again and again I walk in the fire Again again I walk right in But maybe someday we won’t need to talk Maybe someday it’s all lost Stars overhead and there is love Maybe someday we’ll see there’s room for both of us Cause there is room there is room there is room There is room room Stars go boom boom boom I feel it soon soon soon A moonlit blue blue blue I dance all around gone gone All around gone gone gone and And maybe someday…

You’re not alone for the fearful You’re not alone You’re not alone Trip on glass Shattered stones Shattered diamonds Deep down Shattered diamonds Deep down You're not alone Take off your shoes You’re not alone Eyes so blue deep blue Eyes so blue see through I’m see through See through You’re not alone You’re not alone You’re not alone

Walk On 03:33
Walk on for the vulnerable My body is small but my heart is big and open I left it that way just in case you might walk in Walk in My body is small but my heart is big and open I left it that way for the songs I sing for all the people And soft breezes they blow on my cheeks they blow on my cheeks they blow And soft breezes they blow on my cheeks they blow on my cheeks they blow My body is small but my heart is big and open and open I left it that way just incase you should walk in walk in Oh breezes they blow on MY cheeks breezes blow One foot in front foot in front out I go One foot in front foot in front out I go Walk on walk on walk on My voice is small but big inside but big inside and open I left it that way because all I could do was sing from the heart for you And breezes they blow blow Breezes they blow, blow And on my cheeks on my cheeks they blow Walk on they say, walk on on on Walk on they say, walk on on Walk on walk on

Home 06:27
Home for the hopeless Am I too old to come home Sleep in my bed pull Am I too old to come home And set down the weight of my world I know you're praying for me downstairs I’ll get you back when I’m back on my feet And you're praying for me Hail Mary Hail Mary I want to go home I want to go home I want to go home I’m second guessing my thoughts How I come off when really I’m not I feel like I’ll never be enough No matter how much no matter what I know you're praying for me downstairs I’ll get you back when I’m back on my feet And you're praying for me Hail Mary Hail Mary I want to go home I want to go home I want to go home And your praying for me And your praying for me I’ll get you back when I’m back on my feet And you're praying for me

about

With this album, I tried to focus on the individual. The one child in the refugee boat, the one child in the womb, the one fern in the forest, and the album appeared. For me I have come home to a lot of things in my life that I thought I had lost or could never return to. It feels good to know that we actually don’t grow linear…we grow in a spiral…upward…but constantly revisiting what we once knew over and over again…with more strength and clarity. And this makes me happy because we are constantly given the opportunity to love again and again.

I hope this album can be a gift to you. It is the only reason to keep making them.
