Track Name: I Know You
My soul, it shines through my eyes
And you can see the part of me I'm so desperate to hide
It’s the heaviness of heart that brings me down, down, down
My body shakes, the Spirit aches and all my senses hit the ground

But I promise you I’m gonna change
As of today I’m yours all yours
I promise You I’m gonna change
There’s no one but myself to blame ‘cause

I know you are the Remedy and
I know you are the Hope in me and
I know you always love me and
You’ve always believed in me

Your light, it shines through my soul
And I will find that what was broken has somehow been made whole
It’s the pride of my own heart that brings me down, down, down
My body shakes, the Spirit aches, and all my senses hit the ground

You have always believed in me
You have always believed, yeah
You have always believed in me

You have al-always believed
No you never gave up on me, whoa oh
I can't believe, no I can't believe
You've always loved me, you never gave up
You've always believed in me
Track Name: Listen
Speak Lord and let me listen to Your word
The timbre of Your voice is the sweetest I have heard
Shine Lord and let me sit here in Your light
The depth of my weakness is made perfect in Your might

Move Lord and draw me to Your side
Fill me with the thoughts and cares that burden Your own mind
Take this world and make it Yours
Make me less and make You more ‘cause

My heart’s too weak to carry all the burdens of this world and
My hands too tired and weary
I’m just a simple man, a simple man
So fill this empty person with love beyond compare
If only I could listen
If only I could listen, the treasure I’d find there

How You love me, I will never know
How You love me, I will never know

If only I could listen
Track Name: Halfway Home
You’ll go greater places than where you are today
You’ll sing greater songs than the melodies of yesterday
You’ll find greater treasures than the things that you’ve been sold
And the darkest night will remind you
That your faith alone will help guide your way back home

So enough with the maybes
‘Cause your new life is waiting
And you’ll find that hesitating won’t get you halfway home
Won’t get you halfway home

You’ll find truer friends than the ones who turned their backs
You’ll gain all the courage to make up for all you lack
You’ll learn of the secret that the weak and humble know
That the darkest night will remind you
Of the faith alone that helps guide your way back home

I reach out with my faith for what I cannot see
I reach out with both hands for a glimpse of majesty
I reach out with my faith to live what I believe
That all it takes is a touch and I am freed


So I’m done with the maybes
‘Cause my new life is waiting
And I’ve found that hesitating won’t get me halfway home
Won’t get me halfway home

You’ll learn of the secret that the weak and humble know
That the darkest night will remind you that your faith alone will help guide
Your way back home
Only faith will bring you home
Yes your faith will bring you home
Track Name: Losing Altitude
Life is choices
I've been making some bad ones lately
Spit in your face
Then I wonder just why you hate me
How about humility in my daily conversation
When's the last time I asked you what's truly going on
Only think about what I'm doing
Don't care what you're going through
And maybe it's my fault
Well I know that it's my fault

But I'm coming down
I'm coming back to you
Hitting the ground
‘Cause I don't wanna lose you
Coming down
I'm coming back to you
Hitting the ground
‘Cause I don't wanna lose you
And I can't stand to lose you again

Caught in a snare
Bad habits that keep on breaking
Your poor heart can't handle all of the stress it's taking
Only think about what I'm doing
Don't care what you're going through
And maybe it's my fault
Well of course it's all my fault

'Cause I don't wanna lose you
And I can't stand to lose you
And I promise I won't lose you again
Track Name: Rocked
Lights go out
Can’t be stopped
I’m about to get rocked and hit the bottom again
I’ve been so unimpressed with this life
I don’t know, I don’t know just where to begin
I need lows, I need highs, I need more in my life
I need more, if nothing else
I need time to become who I’m trying to be
And maybe in time I hope that you’ll see

It’s still me, I’m still here
I’m still full of the same old fears
So rock me, please rock me to sleep tonight
And don’t turn out the light

When did we start to run from the truth
Like we couldn’t be found, like we’re bulletproof
Can’t get enough out of life so we add what we like
But we still, yeah we still feel empty inside
But you know, yeah you know what to do
But you act, yeah you act like you don’t have a clue
But it’s all plain to see, yeah it’s no mystery
But there’s no going back, and I’m so glad

I’m still me, I’m still here
I’m still full of the same old fears
So hold me, please hold me tonight
And don’t turn out the light

Don’t turn out the light
Track Name: Best Years Yet
Time hits hard
Oh but we’ll strike back with love ‘cause it’s all that we’ve got
But that’s a lot, yeah
Put down your fears, pick up your dreams
‘Cause without dreaming all hope is lost

Keep on moving closer to me
We’re not there but someday we’re gonna be

Time may turn us gray but together we’re not alone
We’ll take these memories and make them a home
These just might be our best years yet
These just might be our best years yet

Hope is found where you least expect it
In the strangest and most desperate place
Amazing Grace
You’ve got a choice
You can be great and be grateful for every step of the way
Track Name: No Longer There
Can’t sleep, eat, think or breathe
Can’t talk about it
I try but the circles in my head run all around it
Can’t see the end of this attraction
Can’t seem to keep myself from asking

After all of this how could it all end up the same
We went in opposite directions from the one we tried to blame
Letters in the doorway
Flowers in her hair
Bittersweet reminders of things no longer there

I hear the sound of your voice in conversations
I look but it’s only in my imagination
Can’t see the end of this addiction
Can’t seem to keep myself from thinking

I’m picking up the pieces from the mess you left inside
The gardens that you planted have all died
Track Name: 5,000
You lost your faith in me
Gave up so easily
And now I’m stuck here with these holes in both my hands
But when’s the last time that you ate
And why do you stay up so late
It starts with rumbling and then tumbling and it doesn’t go away

Oh come and eat with me
You’ve been starving for too long
I can see it in your face
Oh come and eat with me
I can take a single loaf and feed the world

You lost your faith in yourself too
There was a time when there was nothing you couldn’t do
And now you’re stuck here with this hole inside your soul
But when’s the last that you prayed
Or had anything good to say
It starts with mumbling and then grumbling and it doesn’t go away

So bring your loaves
And bring your fish
And I will multiply

Oh come and eat with me
I can take a single loaf and feed the world
Track Name: Clouds Of The Morning
We make our plans and steady our hands
To hold the things we’ve made
We’re so impressed that we forget
To number our days
The shadows are shifting
Like melodies drifting
Through grass that will wither and fade
Oh death
With our last breath what will we say

He said He’s coming
Right where He left off
Just as He stepped out of the tomb
Anthems of angels
Clouds of the morning
Without any warning

He’s coming soon
He’s coming soon

Can’t quite remember where we left off
As you stepped off of the plane
It’s always little things that keep changing
While the big things stay the same
Track Name: Halfway Home (Acoustic)
You’ll go greater places than where you are today
You’ll sing greater songs than the melodies of yesterday
You’ll find greater treasures than the things that you’ve been sold
And the darkest night will remind you
That your faith alone will help guide your way back home

So enough with the maybes
‘Cause your new life is waiting
And you’ll find that hesitating won’t get you halfway home
Won’t get you halfway home

You’ll find truer friends than the ones who turned their backs
You’ll gain all the courage to make up for all you lack
You’ll learn of the secret that the weak and humble know
That the darkest night will remind you
Of the faith alone that helps guide your way back home

I reach out with my faith for what I cannot see
I reach out with both hands for a glimpse of majesty
I reach out with my faith to live what I believe
That all it takes is a touch and I am freed


So I’m done with the maybes
‘Cause my new life is waiting
And I’ve found that hesitating won’t get me halfway home
Won’t get me halfway home

You’ll learn of the secret that the weak and humble know
That the darkest night will remind you that your faith alone will help guide
Your way back home
Only faith will bring you home
Yes your faith will bring you home
