Calm

Wash the ashes from my hands
Can we start something new again
Cause I don’t want to know who I’ve been
I just want to know who you are

See the stars and how they sit
They stay still when everything else spins
Can I know the way of their heart
Can I know the way of their heart

Slow me down
Walk me through your river
Walk me through your river
To calm me down to you

I’m safe and sound
But I don’t even know it
I don’t even know it
So calm me down to you

Chasing money, chasing dreams
Chasing hearts and everything between
The rumble in our hearts has gone numb
The rumble in our hearts has gone numb

Maybe I cant see that love is in my heart
All I need is another restart


CHASING MOMENTS

Heard the call for wealth and fame,
I know its sound, I know its ring
I was searching for a moment
Mmm

Caught my ear with shiny words
and promises to give me worth
My identity is broken
Mmm

I’ve been chasing
I’ve been chasing moments
To watch them disappear

I’ve been chasing
I’ve been chasing moments
To watch them disappear
Mmm

This ain't all, no this ain't right
I've met my goals and won my fights
I’m still searching for a moment
Mmm

I know your touch, I know your taste
But its in the sky by the next day
I cant do this every morning
Mmm

[Chorus]
Kaleidoscope of my desires
Are you real or a disguise
I want the real thing
I want the real thing

Cause every time I paint you in
All your colors start to twist
I want the real thing
I want the real thing
[X2]

[Chorus]


KEEP ME IN THE LIGHT

I have wrestled the arms of demons
Never once have I taken them down
brushed my lips with the lips of evil
had it's kiss knock me down to the ground

Keep me in the light
Keep me in the light

I have tasted the poison of envy
And I fear that’s its still in my blood
Even though that old cup has emptied
It could easily be filled back up

Keep me in the light
Keep me in the light

There’s a cold dark memory
Lying next to me
And it wont let me sleep

There’s a cold dark memory
That has covered me
And it wont let me breathe

Keep me in the light
Keep me in the light

Keep me in the light
Keep me in the light
Keep me in the light
Keep me in the light

A SUBTLE DREAM

Open a symphony of dance
Among a world so still

Reach out
Cradle every teardrop
That I watched fall down

In a world that drains away our youth
In a world that’s grasping for a truth
In a world where violence fills the air
I think we’re gonna be alright

The alleyways of stone inside my heart
Turn to gold when you walk them
Illuminate the dreams among the stars
It’s been awhile since I saw them

[Chorus]
Emotion tends to fight with my reason
I second-guess what I believe in
Adjust my tone and slowly breathe in
Another day…

[Chorus]


BOURBON MELODY

I put my hand to the bourbon
filled with a whirlwind of opportunity
As I drank all its contents
my conscience forgot it was already free

Throw back more but I need less of something
Shots of you have shot me down and now I
Finally see what I thought that I wanted is not what I need

I’m slowly spiraling
This bourbon melody drank me, drank me
This bourbon melody drank me, drank me

I can keep it tilted high
but the bottle never dries its more than a taste
So don’t let me drink away
all the value of today but I’m afraid its too late.

I’m slowly spiraling
This bourbon melody drank me, drank me
This bourbon melody drank me, drank me

I'm losing control, I want it all back
I'm losing control, I want it all back
I'm losing control, and now I want it all back, I want it all back

This bourbon melody drank me, drank me
This bourbon melody drank me, drank me


IVORY TOWERS

In ivory towers we rise,
Craning our necks toward the sky,
Trying to shape the clouds
By the strength of our hands

The valleys that carve through the past
Have calloused my heart and my hands
But shaped me into who I am
Now I’m above

I don’t want to leave this tower
I’m so at peace
Height of heights: you have robbed me of life’s simple gifts
So lower me down
Lower me down, down, down
Lower me down
Down from this ivory tower

The rays of good fortune and chance
Have rested on balconies’ edge
And whisper to me as their friend
“Don’t you leave”

Reality is not there
It’s weathered by storms of despair
Down seven hundred white stairs
That I have climbed


THE GIVER

Take me down, down to the giver
All my love is caught in the winter’s hold
Like every time before

I asked God
Will you remember me once I’ve
Fallen from the treetops that I’ve climbed
Trying to be just like you

Melody, neither a note nor harmony
Can unlock the song I long to be
I’ve sung it all before

The art in me is simply remembering to be
Nothing but a note in symphony
With everyone before

SEE AGAIN

‘Was a robber of the banks of night
I had stolen all the stars that shined
Try to capture me a love so bright
Eyes down

But there was darkness
And a candlelight
It was faded through a clouded mind
But I could feel it, I could feel its might

(I say)
The dawn awakens
The dawn awakens

In the morning, In the morning light
In the morning, In the morning light
In the morning, I will see again, I will see again

See the key to every love be found
See the rivers flowing upside down
See the ruins turn into a town
For you, love

There’s a heartbeat in a hurricane
There’s an answer underneath the pain
I have found it, and he knows my name

(I say)
The dawn awakens
The dawn awakens

In the morning, In the morning light
In the morning, In the morning light
In the morning, I will see again, I will see again

In the morning, In the morning light
In the morning, In the morning light
In the morning, I will see again, I will see again


SOUND OF WONDER

Hold me down
Maybe I’m not, maybe you’re not, maybe we’re not okay
Who is found
Maybe I’m not, maybe you’re not, maybe we’re all the same

Higher ground
Is lifting me up, dragging me down, making me run and hide
Who has bound
All of my worth, all of your worth, all of our worth inside

Constellations in rotation
Pale to light-work in our core
Rolling thunder is muffled under
The sound of wonder that’s in store

Hold me down
Maybe I’m not, maybe you’re not, maybe we’re not okay


NO SHOES

Hold my breath
While I dive for what’s pretend
In the shallowness of youth
I’ve been walking
I’ve been walking with no shoes

Hold my hand
Lift me up above the winds
‘til I know the place I’ve been
I’ve been walking
I’ve been walking with no shoes

Hold my tongue
For I’m not what I have sung
But in the echo of my tune
I’ve been walking
I’ve been walking with no shoes

For 20 years I’ve walked
Down an old beaten route
My mother told me the loveliest truth
No one can impose their plans on you
So I’ll keep walking
I’ll keep walking with no shoes
I’ll keep walking
I’ll keep walking with no shoes


FALLER

I am faller
Down-wind caller
Who is cradling the leaves?
I drift like autumn through a solemn song that feels like breeze

Even though I fall
I won't touch the ground

White-wind dawning
No such thing as falling
Out of sight cause we are infinite in glory
We are lighters of the sun

Even though I fall
I won't touch the ground
I won't touch the ground
