Track Name: Heard It All Before
Between these lines, the shadows and every shade of grey
Change of times, the hunger, the fear it’s all the same
Neon signs glimmer and brightly light the way
But I know, oh how I know, all the half truths

We’ve lost our voice and more
I’ve heard it all before, before
Unsettle all the scores
I’ve heard it all before, before

In headlines the poets and pundits lead the stray
They amplify the screams and empty promises today
Yet they can’t hide the wounds and the scars of yesterday
But I know, oh how I know, all the half truths

Countless times all the lies we’re fed materialize
And all that’s left is there for naked eyes
I hope we can see, but now I fear that…
Track Name: Great Divide
Great divide, swept me off my feet a thousand times
Oversold, the dreams we bought collect dust and grow old
Great divide, swept me off my feet a thousand times
Oversold, the dreams we bought collect dust and grow old

They grow older right before my eyes
As we wonder through the great divide
And the days die under moonlit skies
Well we won’t make our way home tonight

Great divide, swept me off my feet a thousand times
Oversold, the trails we follow ended long ago
Great divide, told us if we seek, we shall find
Oversold, now we’re lost and sense we’re growing old
Track Name: Second Wind
As time keeps flying, there’s no denying, it’s hard to breathe
The shoulders holding a weight that’s growing, constantly
And I’m still learning to be discerning of all I see
While I think I’ve won, it’s only begun, catching up to me

I’m on my knees won’t you wait until I catch my second wind, catch my second wind
I’m on my knees can’t you wait until I catch my second wind, catch my second wind
I’m on my knees won’t you wait until I catch my second wind, catch my second wind

My cup runs over, I’m a floating rover in times like these
And days are numbered, sinking under, rising seas
Track Name: Fire
Break off a piece of dead and add it to the stack
You’ve got some ego but it’s all good, I’ve always got your back
Give me some space to breathe now, I’ll let you spread your wings
This house you’ve built is burning down, grab all your valuable things

Fire
Blazing, breathing, bring the walls down
Spreading fast and burning free
Open all the doors and get me out now
‘Cause now you’re burning me

Hot air you breathe just stokes it, it’s a 5-alarm sirens ring
You didn’t know but it catches quick, man, it’s a terrible thing
Track Name: No Ordinary Love
Originally written and performed by Sade:

I gave you all the love I’ve got, I gave you more than I could give… I gave you love
I gave you all that I have inside and you took you my love, you took my love
Didn’t I tell you what I believe, did somebody say that a love like that won’t last?
Didn’t I give you all that I’ve got to give baby
I gave you all the love I’ve got, I gave you more than I could give… I gave you love
I gave you all that I have inside and you took you my love, you took my love

I keep crying, I keep trying for you
There’s nothing like you and I, baby

This is no ordinary love, no ordinary love

When you came my way, you brightened every day with your sweet smile

Didn’t I tell you what I believe, did somebody say that a love like that won’t last?
Didn’t I give you all that I’ve got to give baby
Track Name: Beyond Me
Late February night
I always knew there was more to you than meets the eye
When you place your hand in mine
Feels like it’s just been you and I this whole time
As we lay in the sand
Connecting constellations, conversations end
And I swear by those stars
That though the light may fade we need not fear the dark

Speak free, sweet symphony
How you carry me along now
Always, these words escape
How you carry me along is beyond me

Each and every word
Gently spins and turns our ever-growing world
While I lose count of the days
Like all the beauty marks that grace your body and face

With every note I hear
Ringing loud and ringing clear I know where I’m meant to be
Melodies you still create
With every breath you take a hold of me
Just speak and carry me
