about

Track Name: Lost in the Sound
Watch it all unfold before your eyes
Stories of the broken hearts we hide
Convincing smiles are telling me lies
It’s like I’m living someone else’s life

My mind screams and shouts, I’m freaking out
Take me somewhere real
Lost in the sound, lost and found
Find me somewhere beautiful

You tell me how to live and who to be
But sweet words can’t give me what I need
You hold me close just to hold me down
Don’t push me deep enough to drown

My mind screams and shouts, I’m freaking out
Take me somewhere real
Lost in the sound, lost and found
Find me somewhere here

My mind screams and shouts, I’m freaking out
Take me somewhere real
Lost in the sound, lost and found
Find me somewhere beautiful
Track Name: When I Feel Lost
Why do you feel so lost?
Why are you feeling all alone now?
The sun doesn’t always shine
But darkness will always turn into the day

Why do you look so down?
Where is the smile you used to have?
Don’t give up hope just now
It’s darkest just before the sun comes out

Why do you feel so lost?
Why are you feeling all alone now?
The sun doesn’t always shine
But darkness will always turn into the day

You’re not on your own
Look beyond the clouds, through the rain
To the sun
Hope will find you here
Knowing it’s not over you’re not over
You’ve got life on your side

Why do you feel so lost?
Why are you feeling all alone now?
The sun doesn’t always shine
But darkness will always turn into the day

You’re not on your own
Look beyond the clouds, through the rain
To the sun
Hope will find you here
Knowing it’s not over you’re not over
You’ve got life on your side
Track Name: Speak To Me
Oceans tremble at your voice
The same voice that speaks
Softly to me
Who am I to deserve
Your beautiful grace
Without restraint

I know I know you’re not always on my mind
But what I wouldn’t do just to hear you

Speak to me show me
The mysteries of your heart
I’ll never be close enough
To you

When I’m in your embrace
My world falls away
You’re all I see
I stand strong in your favor
And everlasting grace
Falling freely
Track Name: Lady in the Yellow Dress
Is this everything you want?
Is he everything you need?
Are you everything you wanted to be?
You’ve got all your silly friends
You’ve got the car, the stuff, the man
Are you everything you wanted to be?

Lady in the yellow dress
You’re just a girl you’ve got the world
Wrapped around your tiny fingers
Lady in the yellow dress
You’re just a girl you’ve got the world
Wrapped around your tiny fingers

When you look outside
Can you love the ugly?
Can you look without a judging stare?
When you look in a mirror
Are you pleased with what you see?
Can you see the beauty underneath your skin?

Lady in the yellow dress
You’re just a girl you’ve got the world
Wrapped around your tiny fingers
Lady in the yellow dress
You’re just a girl you’ve got the world
Wrapped around your tiny fingers

Lady in the yellow dress
You’re just a girl you are the world
Everything we think and say and do
Lady in the yellow dress
You’re just a girl, you are the world
Everything we think and say and do
Track Name: Let's Go Into the Unknown
Let’s go into the unknown
Let’s find a place where we can fly
Let go of all that held us back
Take me away tonight

I find myself alone and scared
Without you by my side
Don’t ever leave me here alone
Take me away tonight

Together we’ll do anything
Adventure through the night
I’ll take you to this place I know
If you teach my how to fly

Forget all of our past mistakes
Forget the tears we cried
Let love light our way home
And give us wings to fly

Let’s go into the unknown
Let’s find a place where we can fly
Let go of all that held us back
Take me away tonight
Track Name: Who's To Know
Who’s to know what goes on far beyond the stars
Who’s to know what goes on in my heart
Who’s to know what goes on underneath it all
Who’s to know what went wrong, what went wrong

The pieces used to fit just the way I liked
I had it all together until life put up a fight
Somewhere along the way sunny skies gave way
To broken hearts and breaking parts and many shades of grey

Drifting all around lost but somehow found
Who’s to know if this is right and who’s to know what’s wrong
Girl, you’ll be okay you don’t have to know your way
You’re alive somehow this is here and now don’t let it get away

Who’s to know what goes on far beyond the stars
Who’s to know what goes on in my heart
Who’s to know what goes on underneath it all
Who’s to know what went wrong, what went wrong
Track Name: The West Coast
I drove through the night
Just to find daylight
Just to find some light to guide me home
They say home’s where the heart is
But my heart’s not here
I left my heart there on the west coast

So drive safe champions
Through the night into daylight
Every tiny town brings us closer to
The place where you belong

So drive safe champions
Through the mountains to the sea
Unearth your heart that’s buried deep
In the sand on the beach
In the sand on the beach
Track Name: The Drive
I’ll go for a drive I’m not going home
It’s the only time I can be alone
I’ll stay for a while out on this road
Maybe in time I’ll hear your song

Find me here please find me here
Show me mysteries teach me everything
I need, I need to know you
Take my hand please take my hand
Guide me when I don’t know which way to go
I need, I need to hear you

I see the light of the moon it illuminates
Every passing mile as the city fades
Stars in the sky can’t show me the way
It’s only when I hear the words that you say

Find me here please find me here
Show me mysteries teach me everything
I need, I need to know you
Take my hand please take my hand
Guide me when I don’t know which way to go
I need, I need to hear you
Track Name: Psalm 121
I lift my eyes to the hills
Where does my help come from
My help comes from the Lord
Maker of heaven and earth

The Lord watches over you
He’s your shade at your right hand
The sun will not harm you by day
Nor the moon by night

He will not let your foot slip
He who watches over you will not slumber
He who watches over Israel
Will neither slumber nor sleep

The Lord watches over you
He’s your shade at your right hand
The sun will not harm you by day
Nor the moon by night

The Lord will keep you from harm
He’ll watch over your life
The Lord will watch over your coming and going
Both now and forevermore

I lift my eyes to the hills
Where does my help come from
