Track Name: Freight Train Cars
We sit on the old porch
and pass the time away
The warm wind's blowin'
It brushes by my face

Your eyes lift up slightly
at the corner with your smile
My spirit hangs heavy
I ain't seen you in a while

We're all just falling stars
Streaking the night sky
above the freight train cars
We're only lonely souls
holding on closely to a love
that no one knows

We're all just heeding time
waiting for the next one
to put us back in line
You're only one drop
in an ocean

I'll look for you slowly the next time I swim
Track Name: Tide
Dark clouds form over the hills
The sailor sets his anchors free
The storm is headed for us now
But the salt calls to our skin from the sea
He holds his gaze stead, along the horizon
We're headed out eastward bound
As the sun is rising with

The tide

The ocean is swelling
Like a heartbreak brewing for years
His feet rest flat across the planks
As he chokes down all of his fears
Oh, don't take us now
We've only just begun
Let us make it west through one more day
So we can see that setting sun....

And the tide...
Track Name: Gold
Sound the sirens
Hold your horses
Give the gold away

Scan the sidewalks
Make the mountains
Carry your cargo to bay

Now every light
that I'm passin' through
Spokes and wheels are
no closer to you
Searchin' faces
that pass me by
Cry on, cry on

Rain on rivers
Turn the tables
Blocks don't bring me
to you

Burn the bridges
Ditch the darkness
End the empty and blue

Now every light
that I'm passin' through
Spokes and wheels are
no closer to you
Searchin' faces
that pass me by
Cry on, cry on
Track Name: Doubts
Life is good
so they say
From beneath the clouds

The sky
broke by rays
Shadows casting over doubts, doubts

Not everything
should be so heavy
I've heard
From the sand
watch the driftwood
As it rots and it burns, it burns

It burns, it burns

I'm told
take the high road
Long and winding slow
Cut the ocean
drop the cliff side
Far below
A California...

Sky
Track Name: Colors
As I lay in bed
staring out the window
Avoiding the start of the morn'
The fan did spin
from the center of my ceiling
and from my bed I was torn

If the sun does rise
then, so will I
bringing all the colors of the day
The night was long
as we slept on
and dreamt the time away

Now we're hopping trains
and we're getting even closer
to the places we've never been before
Hope in the air
it flies up to the ceiling
as we lay our amends upon the floor

If the sun does rise
then, so will I
bringing all the colors of the day
The night was long
as we slept on
and dreamt the time away

We load our bags
and we're leaving all the endings
untied like shoes along the way
we pick and pack our feelings regretting
each start to all our new days

We shout and scream
and we're moving like the others
who came to lay out our paths
and they days are long
but we're getting even closer
to all we never had

If the sun does rise
then, so will I
bringing all the colors of the day
The night was long
as we slept on
and dreamt the time away
Track Name: Savior
It's not healthy
the way I think of you
it's obsession
But no one makes me feel
like you do
How can I turn away?

My skin's crawling
enough to fill my dreams
with desires
of nothing that is pure and true
How can I turn away?

I'm looking for a savior
or some kind of sign
will you help me?
I'm going down a road
that I've been too many times
will you save me?

Save me from this storm
Track Name: Dawn
I'll move like a new moon
if you promise to carry me along
the dark sky in my mind's eye
where stars grow restless and strong

I'll sleep like a baby
if you promise to wrap me up tight
in a warm bed to lay my head
as the dawn steals away the night

Will you float out my window
a secret escaping from the cracks
'Cause I know how the story goes
when you're leaving to never look back

I'll move like a childhood
slowly and lonely at play
With your warm hand around my hand
As the sun steals you away

I'll sleep like a baby
if you promise to wrap me up tight
in a warm bed to lay my head
with your warm hand around my hand
as the dawn and the sun
begin a new day
Track Name: Change
There's a change comin' my way
Sun rays are scattered across the floor
There's a darkness leaving my days
Clouds have parted blue skies that stay

There's a change

There's a comfort blanketing my skin
No more scratching at the surface
trying to get out
There's a lightness in my bones
Dust has settled
I have cast every stone

There's a change

There's a change comin' my way
There's a change comin' my way

There's a change
