Track Name: Magic
Magic

A spell of sage
Exploding in the roadside
A broken cage
And the birds are out to kiss the sky

Carried by the wind
She’ll build a home to keep you warm
Grounded by the earth
He’ll be your shelter in the storm

Take your time little child
Don’t you go a growing up too fast now
The world is full of magic
It’s wonderful, it’s fragile
Let’s try to make it last

You arrived
Vibrant over violent waters
Had the tides
Rejoicing over their new daughter

Take your time little child
Don’t you go a growing up too fast now
The world is full of magic
It’s wonderful, it’s fragile
Let’s try to make it last

Let’s try to make it last [repeat until fade]
Track Name: Sapphire Skies
Sapphire Skies

Remember that day?
When you realized
That there is more to life
That what you know

The colors grew bright
As they kissed your eyes
And brought the highest highs
And lowest lows

It was then when there was something left to lose
But some days the only hues that come are blue

Ooh

We could carry on
Like birds that sing their songs into
The night

Sapphire skies
Ring the morning in
Ideas form within
Our blooming minds

And oh what a sight
To see that daffodils
Breaks through the winter’s chill
And melt the ice

Occupy the streets
And let them hear your voice
For there are others
Who are waking up to join

Ooh x2

[We will be heard
Like a flock of birds that fly in] repeat
to the night
Track Name: 6s+7s
6s+7s

I am a kite on a string
Packing up my bags picking up with the wind
But I won’t be growing old

I set my sights on sixes and sevens
Stuck on earth and still searching for heaven
But I don’t know where to go

It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright
[x2]

I am a lioness
Fire in my heart and a roar in my chest
But I still purr like a cat

I fell for the feathers in your hair
The smile on your face and the jeans that you wear
So I’d let you take me out

It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright
[x2]

Heading out west on the six o’ clock train
The timing was off and it started to rain
But I’ll catch you on the road
We’ll make it our home

It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright
[x2]
Track Name: End of the Road
End of the Road

Listen to the wind blow
Leaving everything you know
Oh

Walk into the unknown
Surely you will grow
Oh

When your world is unravelling fast
Just know that the darkness will pass
And at the end of the road you will have
A faith that’s strengthened by the length of the path [x2]

Truth will guide you home to
Rest your weary bones
Oh

Seeking until death
The bread and the breath
Oh
Track Name: Go and Grow
Go and Grow

It starts with a spark of light
Magic markers are writing their stories on minds
On the climb
Unafraid to behave like a child
Like a seed
On the verge of revealing
The secrets
Of feeding on the sun [x2]

The gardens will guide you
They call out your name
With their vibrancy violent violets
Viable violins breaking the silence
They’re rioting
Rising from choirs the words that they sung…
Oh Spring has been spring [2x]

Oh let it grow
Oh let it go

The veils are all fading
The irons are breaking
And making a glorious noise
It destroys
All the shackles they shatter
Our matter enraptured
The knots that are tied up inside
Are becoming all undone [x4]

Oh let it grow
Oh let it go
Track Name: Peace of Mine
Peace of Mine

I, I’m out to find
A peace of mind
Out in the sky
I, I’m out to find
A piece of mine
Out in the sky

Sitting on the red red rocks
It won’t be long until the sun goes down and the lights turn on
I’ve been moving up the coast on my luck it’s running low
I’ve got to find myself a new place to go

And when i look into the distance i can’t seem to tell
If it’s a lie that i’m eyeing or heaven itself
I’m on the hunt for the honey on the quest for wealth
To drinking water from the deepest well.

I, I’m out to find
A peace of mind
Out in the sky
I, I’m out to find
A piece of mine
Out in the sky

I’ve been dreaming of a place made of redwoods and wine
The city lost its luster so i left it behind
I set my sights up ahead to where the sun meets the eye
And the land meets the sea and the sea meets the sky

I’ve been sleeping on the beaches reaching up to the light
And they’ve been guiding me home every single night
And the hope that they glow til the day that we go
Is enough to keep me high

I, I’m out to find
A peace of mind
Out in the sky
I, I’m out to find
A piece of mine
Out in the sky
Track Name: Nothing
Nothing

Deep deep in the night
No sleep in sight
No easing my mind
Rise rise from your beds
Eyes apple red
In search of the signs to show you
That if you don’t mean it
Your hopes will stay stuck in your head

Step step after step
This meaningless trek
Is wearing my feet to my knees
And i need air in my lungs
A fire in my tongue
And something worth spilling this blood for
Cause if you’re not dreaming
It seems that you’re already dead

Your love parts the sky
Your love splits the sea
Your love has the mountains at your feet
Your love lights a fire within me

Your love [repeat]

Oh the moment is gone
And i carry on
In search of that luminous now
Bow bowing my head
I wish to be lead
Lead to the light are you listening?
Cause without love
There is nothing
Track Name: To the Sun
To the Sun

They took the blood from my body
To fuel the machine
It’s got me drained in reality
And in my dreams
The curtain in between
Slowly ripped at the seams
It’s got me saying things that i don’t mean

I’ve been sitting at the table
With the wolves and the kings
And i’ve been blinded by the brightness
Of their diamonds and things
I’ve been grieving for that feeling
That i had but it’s gone
And there’s no looking back
When you’re moving on

They ask me what will you do
And where will you go?
I don’t know but i’m leaving on my bicycle
Cause to make the great escape
You need to have a little faith

My love we’re on the run
From the barrels of a gun
But keep your chin up
Keep your feet moving strong
Cause it’s a long way to the sun

I’ve been given limitation
I’ve been living in fear
And i’ve been wading through the river
For the truth to come clear
I’ve been waiting on the lord
To come and set me free
But when we got to the gates
They had no space for me

So if i’m not gonna make it out
either way
Tell me what’s the use of
Staying sane
I’ve got nothing to lose
By playing the fool
Just like the preacher in the subway
Saying the world will end soon

And if they call you mad
I’m glad to have you on our side
Just lock your eyes to the stars
And all the signs of our times
Just listen to the fire
Let your heart be your guide
Cause there’s no place to hide in the moonlight

My love we’re on the run
From the barrels of a gun
But keep your chin up
Keep your feet moving strong
Cause it’s a long way to the sun
Track Name: Still Here
Still Here

The sun
Burns the leaves
To a fiery red
The water escapes
To claim its place
In the heavens above
But we’re down here below
Watching the wind
Wondering where does it go?

Oh
Wondering where does it go.

And i’ll travel through the mountains
Ramblin’ on my own
Asking where oh where did i come from
Where oh where is my home

In my New York City apartment
I stare out the window
Watching the smoke blow out
To the streets
And it greets
All the grey
It’s unclear
Why we’re staring at lights
Asking why we’re still here?

Here, asking why we are still here?

And I’ll travel through the cities
Ramblin’ on my own
Asking where oh where will i go to
Where oh where is my home?
Track Name: The Other Side
The Other Side

Though I walk through the valleys
Of the shadows of death
I fear not for my life
For I, I’ve seen the light

And in darkness i’ve wandered
To the end of the line
At the end of my rope
Feeling empty inside
With no more tears to cry

If you feel like a soul without a home
Just remember that you are not alone

Oh as the fog rolls in
Covering everything
The road you once knew is gone
Just take a breath
Keep on moving ahead
And i’ll see you on the other side

If you look to the sky and you only see grey
Holding on to what’s gone well just throw it away
Know that better days, better days, better days
Are to come

If you feel like a soul without a home
Just remember that you are not alone

[Oh as the fog rolls in
Covering everything
The road you once knew is gone] x3
Just take a breath
Keep on moving ahead
And [i’ll see you on the other side] repeats until end
Track Name: Wildhearts
Wildhearts

Our minds are aligned
By this appetite
For a nighttime brightened
By our quiet lights

I think too much my head is always rushing
I’m losing touch with my dreams
But with your kiss it all comes back to me
Oh won’t you come back to me
I find it hard to sleep
Without you beside me

In the daily race it’s all work and no play
Wasting our youth away
And losing our fight to stay

Come with me out of this city
And oh let’s make a home
Where the wildhearts roam

I’m out west with the restless
Wind at my side
Trying to leave all my demons behind
Late at night waiting up to see all the stars
Counting down the hours
Till i’m there where you are

Come with me across the country
And oh let’s make a home
Where the wildhearts roam

We have spun around the sun
Too long since i’ve seen your face
Searching all the world
But nothing could take your place
And there’s too much time and space
Between our embrace.

Come with me over the oceans
And oh let’s make a home
Where the wildhearts roam.
