lyrics
VERSE 1
Pack light, just take what you need
Say your goodbyes, we’re leaving tonight
The empty roads and open seas
Their mysteries are beckoning us on

CHORUS
We could sail to new frontiers
And leave behind all that we hold dear
We will keep your memories
And make a home anywhere we please

VERSE 2
Stories of those early days
Of explorations that paved the way for this
Leaving all our fear behind
Discovering the truth in what we find

PRE-CHORUS
Where we’re going there’s no turning back
Bring a melody or two to keep your heart intact

BRIDGE
When letters from home
Get lost in the mail
And we’re all alone
On a hope and a prayer
Track Name: Fragile
FRAGILE

We are fragile needing much
We are delicate to the touch
We are temporary at best
Unaware of what’s next

We float through space and time
Transient hearts align

We are wealthy, given much
Keeping all but some to ourselves
Hear the call to abandon self
But we can’t get outside ourselves

Fear of the undiscovered
Locks us inside
Leave all your inhibitions
Embrace this life

Leave what you once knew behind
Take what is left see what you’ll find
Track Name: I Lost Myself
I LOST MYSELF

I lost myself today
Without even knowing what was happening
I’ve got voices in my head
Making me think that this is where I end

Hey, what do you see, if anything
What do you see in me
Hey, I’ve lost my way, cause of these mind games
They’re making me lost my way

You and me we made a plan
To travel from here to there and back again
Somewhere on that weathered road
I found the dreams that I’d been looking for

Hey, what do you see, if anything
What do you see in me
Hey, I’ve lost my way, cause of these mind games
They’re making me lost my way

Hey, I can see that we have found everything
That we’ve been missing
Hey, we’ve got the world to see
So let’s forget our anxieties and get on our way
Track Name: Let's Make Our Escape
LET’S MAKE OUR ESCAPE

Where do you wanna go, where do you want to take me
Just tell me where and I’ll be there with you
By car or airplane it doesn’t matter to me
Let’s go into the unknown together

Let’s make our escape

Oh my darling, let’s go far away
Find the greatest hiding place
Far away from everything
Oh my dear, it’s just you and me
With lots of time and much to see
And visions of what we can be

Maybe someday we’ll come back to this town
And find a place that we can call our own
When we’ve grown old we’ll still think of these days
And in our dreams we’ll fly away together

Let’s make our escape

Oh my darling, let’s go far away
Find the greatest hiding place
Far away from everything
Oh my dear, it’s just you and me
With lots of time and much to see
And visions of what we can be

Oh my darling, this is our escape
Let’s break out and find a way
To leave this world a better place
Oh my dear no matter where we are
Here or there, near or far
I’m at home inside your arms
Track Name: Dance With Me
DANCE WITH ME
Only the trees heard us
As we whispered tender secrets
You told me that you loved me
And they whispered back their approval

So dance with me under the stars
And I’ll get lost and found in your arms
Safe and sound here on this moonlit night
We begin

I looked into your eyes
Lit up by the starlight
Telling tales of days to come
Of you and I together

So dance with me under the stars
And I’ll get lost and found in your arms
Safe and sound here on this moonlit night
We begin

Here we go, here we go
Track Name: Lullaby
LULLABY
You are a bundle of hopes and dreams
Nothing can stop you now
Don’t let the weight of the world bring youdown
Cause you’ll never be alone

Someday I’ll have to let you go
But until then I’ll keep you close

Always remember these three things
Faith hope and brushing your teeth
But most importantly
Do everything lovingly

Love is the greatest of all
To live for this is the greatest call

For now I’ll keep you safe in my arms
Until you’re ready to go, explore
The world that you see
And all of its mysteries

May the world fill you with wonder
And may you find all the things that you search for

I won’t let any harm
Come to you while you’re in my arms
But someday I’ll have to let you go
Until then I’ll keep you close
Track Name: Weight of the World
WEIGHT OF THE WORLD
You’ve got the weight of the world my dear
And you don’t know how to let it go
Your broken heart hasn’t healed in years
But nothing you say would let it show

Just let it go, oh let it go
Let it go, oh let it go

Some things you can’t do alone my dear
There’s no easy remedy for loneliness
Even though daylight is fading here
There’s still time to let it go and breathe again

Just let it go, oh let it go
Let it go, oh let it go
Just let it go, oh let it go
Let it go, oh let it go

Something in your eyes
Suggests you’re breaking up inside, inside
Let me take your burdens
Give you rest until you decide, decide

That you’ve carried on far too long my dera
All alone, now alone no more
Now is the time to carry on from here
To march on and plant your flag where you belong

You belong, oh you belong
You belong, oh you belong
You belong, oh you belong
You belong, oh you belong
Track Name: How It Goes
HOW IT GOES
A voice on the breeze was singing to me
It told me everything about the way the world should be
Stories of lands across a giant sea
Truths to discover and a means to be free

And I know that we will never know
How the world keeps going how it goes

And all this time we’ve spent
Waiting for our lives to happen
Is time that’s been wasted
While the world keeps moving and changing

I’ve said my goodbyes now there’s no turning back
I’ll keep singing this melody to keep my heart intact

And I know that we will never know
How the world keeps going how it goes
How the world keeps going how it goes

And all this time we’ve spent
Waiting for our lives to happen
Is time that’s been wasted
While the world keeps moving and changing

And all this time we’ve spent
Waiting for our lives to happen
Is time that’s been wasted
While the world keeps moving and changing

And I know that we will never know
How the world keeps going how it goes
And I know that we will never know
How the world keeps going how it goes
Track Name: Of Life and of Death
OF LIFE AND OF DEATH
When you were here I thought we had
Plenty of time to talk about all those years past
But now you’re gone and all that’s left
Is a pile of photographs and memories in my head

I’ll never let you go
I’ll never let you go

From dust we come then someday return
All of the moments in between will barely be heard
What then shall we say of life and of death
Follow your heart while you can and live with no regrets

I’ll never let you go
I’ll never let you go

So I’ll tell them stories so I won’t forget you
I’ll keep your photographs so I’ll recognize you

I’ll never let you go
I’ll never let you go
Track Name: Love, I Lost
LOVE, I LOST

Love, I lost again
Lost the love we shared
I wanted to explain
But you’d already gone away

So I found the place
Where we first embraced
Where I fell for you
Where I found this truth

Love, we’re not yet dead
We must fight for what we had
Won’t you come back home
Give us a second chance

And we’ll find the place
Where we first embraced
Where I fell for you
Where I found this truth

And we’ll find the place
Where we first embraced
Beginning and the end
Could we begin again

In the place we started from we’ll fix what went wrong
Reignite the fire that died and learn this all again
In the place we started from we’ll fix what went wrong
Reignite the fire that died and learn this all again

And we’ll find the place
Where we first embraced
Beginning and the end
Could we begin again
Track Name: Like the Mist
LIKE THE MIST

We are like the morning mist
Here just until the sun shows his face
I am tired of living for
Meaningless Pursuits, chasing after the wind

Oh the world has failed
To satisfy
It’s left me with nothing to show
But this hollow shell

I am searching for the beauty
That you said I’d find in your own time
Will this lonely, traveling soul
Ever find what it’s looking for?

The temporary nature
Of this earthly home
Cannot silence the song
Of eternity

That resonates in our hearts
And leads us towards
Finding the meaning of life
And where we belong

I hope you find what you’re looking for
