Track Name: Song I Sing
This is the song that I sing,
This is just all I can bring
And if this song is still unsung,
I just can’t wait til you hear it now

This is the song that I sing,
This is my offering
Track Name: Stay With Me
I am out on the edge of the pond and You’re here with me
A promise to stay - stay here forever and don’t ever leave
It’s nothing that I’ve done and I’ll never be
Able to find such a thing that’s better than You here beside me

You, You’re here with me beside raging waters
You restore my desperate soul

So I pray that You’d stay, You’d stay with me
Oh I pray that You’d stay oh You’d stay with me

As I find myself in a rut I know, You’re there with me
Never to fear - never to face this on my own
A reflection of Your love is shone unto me
And whenever I hear of your love, the gentlest whisper surrounds me And so I pray...

So I pray that You’d stay - You’d stay with me
Oh I pray that You’d stay - You’d stay with me
Track Name: Blossoming
I’m waiting for the rain to fall,
To fall on my face - fall on my face, yeah
I’m waiting for this drawbridge to fall,
To fall down again - to fall down again

How many years has it been since I’ve loved?
Since Your love has crept into my heart
How many years has it been since I’ve seen
I’ve seen Your Kingdom come?

I’ve come so far to see creation blossoming here again - here again
I’ve waited for heaven to come down on the earth
I’ve come so far to see creation blossoming here again - here again
I’ve waited for heaven to come down on the earth - down on the earth

This place is my permanent home
I’m here to stay, I’m here to stay
I am a new creation
The old has gone – the new has come!

I’ve come so far to see creation
Blossoming here again – here again
I’ve waited for heaven to come down on the earth
I’ve been knocking on heavenly gates to let me come in again – in again

I’ve waited for heaven to come -
I’ve waited for heaven to come -
I’ve waited for heaven to come down on the earth - down on the earth
Track Name: Out of Breath
Walk out the door and down the three front steps
Toward the setting sun - toward the setting sun
I cross the plains and stretches of dry sands
Past the weathered hills to the cliffs by the sea

I feel the wind filling my lungs
As I lift my weary eyes
I gaze ahead and take…

Another step - up to the ledge
Shout to the depths - 'til I’m out of breath
Oooh, oh...

Caught in a cloud - the wind takes me away
My feet can’t touch the ground - my feet can’t touch the ground
Was chasing shapes and shadows until now
I’m standing at the feet of this pillar of fire

I feel the flames dance on my skin, but I know I won’t be singed
I close my eyes and take…
Track Name: Alone
I look out in the distance now - the skies are a shady grey
I cry out for help and I feel so unafraid
And know that my God has lifted my weary head

You’ve never left me alone, You’ve never left me alone

My feet may lead me astray - the path may be winding
I’ve never felt so far away - my struggles are blinding
His Word is a light – a lamp unto my feet

You’ve never left me alone, You’ve never left me alone

You’re here with me now and forever
You’ll never stop loving me - Your Spirit has set me free
You’re here with me now and forever
Your presence it abides in me - You’re here with me now
And forevermore
Track Name: Let Me Fall
Climbing high but these monsters keep on chasing me
To the top of the world, top of the world, top of the world
Looking down it all just seems so foreign now
I'm crying aloud, crying aloud, but do you hear a sound?

For the hundredth time I'm on top of the world alone again
This time I've come to far, this time I've come to far
I long for the days when I used to gaze up at the stars
Sitting at your feet where I used to dream

Let me fall, fall back down to the earth
Be buried deep in the dirt
I'll give up all that I'm worth
Let me fall, fall back down to the earth
Be buried deep in the dirt
I'll give up all that I'm worth

On my knees before the sea
With the castles in the sand I'll fade away, fade away with the tide
I'll go back, I'll go back, I'll go back
Get off this beaten track
But when I can't will you melt these frozen wings of wax?

Let me fall, fall back down to the earth
Be buried deep in the dirt
I'll give up all that I'm worth
Let me fall, fall back down to the earth
Be buried deep in the dirt
I'll give up all that I'm worth

On my knees
Before the sea
With the castles in the sand I'll fade away
Fade away
On my knees
Before the sea
With the castles in the sand I'll fade away
Fade away
Track Name: Losing Sight
I tremble in the night as a faint whisper becomes
A surrounding rumble - I’m shaken to the core
Sounds of falling glass shatter around me
Books and cases fall - walls come crumbling down

My heart beats - faster - as I open up my eyes

I’m losing sight - stretching out both arms
Through the clouds of dust, I reach for the grasp of your hand
You’re my shining light
You’re my shining light out of this night

Desperately I run escaping with my life
I race to higher ground - There’s no more turning back
Plumes of smoke arise darkening all light
The moon and heavens shake as stars fall from the sky

My heart breaks - it’s torn apart - I look up for a sign

I’m losing sight - stretching out both arms
Through the clouds of dust, I reach for the grasp of your hand
You’re my shining light
You’re my shining light out of this night

I’m waiting for the call
Of trumpets from afar
I’m watching for the winds to change
And come and rescue me
Track Name: Come July
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I need you to hear – this while you’re away
I wish that I could draw you near and whisper all of my thoughts – right into your ear
Truth is that I’d never thought that we’d come this far – even when apart
Your face, I paint in my head while I’m lying awake -- in my bed

And I don’t know what to do
I wanna be right next to you

The winter chill has come and gone
This breeze will bring spring along – as I sing this song
And I imagine your smile
Radiating like the sun – for miles and miles

But I just don’t like this view
I’d rather be right next to you

So I’m, I'm coming to see you - coming to see you
Coming to see you, baby
I’m coming to see you come July -- oh July
I’m coming to see you - coming to see you
Coming to see you, baby
I’m, I’m coming to see you come July -- oh July
Oh, I can’t wait ‘til July
Track Name: New
Roaming through these empty streets,
Cobbled stone beneath my feet
Neon lights flashing in my eyes,
I’m paralyzed, paralyzed

I lay awake, stare through the strings and bars
From the dark, I whisper to the stars

Make -- Make -- Make -- Make -- me new

Clinging to these wooden bones – splintering, cracked to the core
Pressing on ‘til I forget the old – and you, carry me home

I lay awake, stare through the strings and bars
From the dark, I whisper to the stars

Make -- Make -- Make -- Make -- me new
Track Name: Snowfall
I wake up to the sound of my alarm piercing the dawn
Got a lot on my mind and I just can’t seem to rub it off
But I’m not feeling tired - not feeling tired at all

Looks like the winter brought in the snowfall late last night
Not a trace of any footprints here, and no one there to call
But I don’t feel alone - not alone at all

Your love is sweet like a melody sung to my soul
Your love is snowfall covering the earth, wash me white as snow

A thousand times I’ve tried but never won to be content
It’s like the curse has lifted from my heart inside my chest
Now I don’t feel undone - a love that I have won

Your love is sweet like a melody sung to my soul
Your love is snowfall covering the earth - wash me white as snow
Your love is sweet like a symphony - this sound I know
Your love is snowfall covering the earth - making me whole

Woah...
Track Name: Wait For The Day
I wait for the day when I have you by my side
I wait for the day I can see your lovely smile
Then I’ll know that in time is where my heart can be filled

I wait for the day when heaven comes down to earth
I wait for the day when I’m stripped down to my birth
I wait for the time my transgressions are as far as the distance

I wait for the day when I have you by my side
I wait for the day I can see your lovely smile
Then I’ll know that in time is where my heart can be filled

I wait for the day when heaven comes down to earth
I wait for the day when I’m stripped down to my birth
I wait for the time my transgressions are as far as the distance

Ooh - I’ll wait for you – I’ll be true

A couple thousand miles can’t separate us
This lonely sleepless night can’t take you away
Like the dawn, the sun will rise and shine
We’ll live to see another day arrive
This is a promise
