Track Name: The Great Divide
Unspoken words from you eyes paint a picture in disguise
You can't hide what's inside
The churning tide, raging winds, static charge that's within
Begs for release the touch sets it free

I know

The body feels with embrace sets a course starts the chase
No longer just me, we melt into this sea
Of passion and of place, of time, and of space
We don't need a word to understand the unheard

Cause I know
I know

I feel safe here, sharing this moment lets stay here, drift out of time we were made here shortening the great divide
Track Name: This Life
Time never stops, moments pass, chances fade away
If you stand on the sideline
With your head in your hand you're bound to miss the game
Take a risk and make mistakes
It's the only path to finding your own way
Wake, open your eyes
Breath in and let go of fear
Wait, it'll be alright
Don't run away, do what you want to do
It's dog eat dog and alpha's don't pity fools
They'll take what they want and leave none for you

Cause in this life living's for today
Cause in this life you've got to seize the day

Fight, don't you flight
Take a risk, rise above adversity
Tread the trough the dead of night
Courage is a beacon that sets us free
Take a risk and make mistakes
It's the only path to finding your own way

Cause in this life living's for today
Cause in this life you've got to seize the day
(Won't fear it, Believe it, I'll seize the day)
Track Name: Unrelenting Games
Turn a sad song upside down
Rewrite the words, we'll turn it around
It's the starting of a brand new day
Life's moving on anyway
And things will never be the same
No, life's changes are unrelenting games
Challenges never seen before
And you'll never know what's in store

If you live your whole life behind closed doors
You've gotten open up to see the world

Will or will it won't be
It's all the same
I'll get by on my own
Don't think its destiny
It'll be ok
I'll get by on my own

Don't think of it as an end
Turn the page let the next story begin
You'll find life is full of gifts
It's up to you to open it
And time moves in straight lines
No variation will we ever find
Make the best, don't ask why
Nothing's meant to last in life

So don't mourn over broken hearts
Revel in the fact that you got this far

Will or will it won't be
It's all the same
I'll get by on my own
Don't think its destiny
It'll be ok
I'll get by on my own

When you are gone I'll carry on
Track Name: I Want You
No tongue of human race
No words to paint this place
I’m out of control
Desire takes hold

You linger just from my reach
I burn with stifled speech
My soul is on fire with passion’s desire

Cause I want you to know but the words won't come

The ever quickening pace
That leads my heart to race
Lost in your smile
Your touch drives me wild

And so I wrote a song
Even if the words are all wrong
Intentions laid bare to make you aware

Cause I want you to know but the words won't come
And I want you to know will I let the words come?
Track Name: Rebirth
Fields of white are all around
Her body's on the ground
Angels in the snow
Wind takes all her cares away
Stars bright as day
She leaves it all behind

I will wait for you in that grove
If it all comes true, we can save the world

Mountains reach for the sky
Our souls held on high
We will be as one
Forests cover all the lands
Rivers roots they'll span
Mother is reborn

I will wait for you in that grove
If it all come true, we can save the world
We can save the world
Track Name: Ghost
I once the knew the world as gold
now I never feel the warmth of the winds and the waves
colors have all disappeared
A shadow, lost to time
For whom all are blind

But this was not always my fate
the touch of my lover was stolen with deception
snake bites of silver tongue devils
now I'm all alone
the wind blows

I have no home
I'm forced to walk the world
looking for love
Track Name: Star
Somewhere out there beyond eternity
A fabric woven into reality
I know hope can't be just a feeble dream
of someone who has but a song to sing

Staring into darkness I see the world unfold
Particles and waves are but universal
Frequencies there to create the light
I take my first step to being alive

I want it all, I want more
I want it fixed, then I want discord
Cause I can't keep living this life
Feeling broken, feeling like nothing is quite right
Believe me when I say

I'm in love with being a Star

Gravity collapses me I can't uphold
The pressure of this life slowly takes control
I feel it's better if I just hide my face
But I can't escape the pull of it's pace

I want it all, I want more
I want it fixed, then I want discord
Cause I've tried but I can't forget
I can't take this pain inside I need some rest cause

I'm in love with being a Star

Cause I can't keep living this life
Feeling broken, feeling like nothing is quite right
Believe me when I say

I want it all, I want more
I want it fixed, then I want discord
Cause I've tried but I can't forget
I can't take this pain inside I need some rest cause

I'm in love
Track Name: My Way Back Home
I've reached a point, I can never go back
To the way things use to be
Sands of time, how we'll always grow
We fade away like memories
But there's a place I can't deny
There's a place of infinity
Took a chance waiting on a train
To wake me back to reality

If I say here long enough surely I'll be able to find my way back home

Can't pine for the days of yore
Naive won't last indefinitely
I'll remain a shadow of myself
A child who ate of the knowledge tree
And so I sit and I remain
Feel the rumble of destiny
Took a chance waiting on a train
To wake me back to reality

If I stay here long enough surely I'll be able to find my way back home

I've reached a point, I can never go back
To the way things use to be
Train's coming, I can hear it roar
I've waited so patiently
No longer, I'll feel unrest
Life's problems ended so quickly
Took a chance waiting on a train
To wake me back to reality

If I stay here long enough surely I'll be able to find my way back home

I'll find my way back home alright
