Sound 04:16
On my own As I travel over sea and under stone I can never go alone In your eyes I can read between the lies It's your spirit gives me hearing and your word that gives me sight You are light Like a beacon on a mountain burning bright When I see it shining through I am found Like an anchor in the ocean I am bound You are light and in your sight I am sound In the storm As the elements of anger start to swarm In the blizzard I am warm In your blaze I can concentrate my gaze through this maze of ways You have shown me what is good and what is right So call my name and speak it loud The way you love me inside out You lift me from my need And set me where I cannot leave you So take my breath and hold my tongue Come be the air within my lungs Lead me in all I do To listen for the sound of you In my sleep Even then you are the company I keep When you're counting me a sheep In your hand I will bend to your command You defend me from the dangers of my darkest night You are light Like a cloud upon the mountain burning bright I can see it shining through and I am found You part the waters and I walk upon dry ground You are light and in your sight I am sound

Tom Bombadil 04:43
Well I had to admit we were lost When I came to the place where the road divides She said does it kind of remind you of Robert Frost I said why and she said never mind I told her I'm glad to be home for a season The forest was laughing with a midsummer sound It's good to go walking and not need a reason With only the sun bearing down We could spend all our lives chasing shadows of time Never notice the bright side of June in the afternoon sky Come take a summer day slow Imagine where that open road will get you to go We could happen to find the way to Cair Paravel Never know when you might need a heartwarming story to tell We could spend a while or two, just me and you and Trespassers Will And drop in on Tom Bombadil We sat on a stone for a cup of cold water Pass me the Nalgene if we haven't run out She said who's your favorite author And Paul Simon doesn't count Years at a time can go by We didn't stay six for as long as we planned to I never saw you at all 'til we were already gone Shadows were long as we crested the mountain We saw the last of the sun and the lights on the town She turned her back against the wind She said I guess this is where the sidewalk ends But I turned around, I said oh no, this is where it all begins

You stood on the mountain; you took to the stage And your words spilled like ink on an open page A light from the heavens come down to the dark world of men You spoke to my spirit; I hungered to hear it, to see you again But I might have misheard you or maybe I don't get the joke 'Cause now you're sending me out with no staff and one cloak And I'm happy to follow but you ask me to lead And scatter my handful of seed We are the light of the world How can I be the light of the world? I stumble in dimness and dust And my eyes can't adjust to the light of the world You sit at the table, there's bread in your hands And you give me a picture I can understand Saying 'this is my body broken for you' Then you look up to heaven, break the bread open and tear it in two But I read in your letter a line that I can't figure out Now I'm a little bit anxious and a little bit proud 'Cause it's another reversal, another card up your sleeve And it takes all my faith to believe We are the body of Christ How can I be the body of Christ? I am but body and soul But together we become the whole body of Christ And I don't understand it, but I can't turn away So don't save my seat on the fence 'Cause something keeps spurring me on this adventure I've taken for granted the gifts that you gave And the promises made to me of all that is mine Make me shine like the light of the world As you are the light of the world Piercing the dimness and dust Let the traveler trust in the light of the world

The sun comes up as the paper arrives Daddy is catching the 6:25 Laura's reminded as she locks the door That Mama don't live here anymore Nobody lives here anymore A southbound train took her far from here Laura remained just to finish the year Mama said they needed a chance to unwind But Daddy didn't have the time Daddy never had the time Now hush little Laura, keep it all inside Living alone makes it easy to hide You're hanging around but you're running away 'Cause your mind is resigning but your heart won't stay (Singing Ahh...) Sing along with the Long Island Lullaby Nobody mourned them or called it a crime It was only a sign of these New York Times Nobody warned them of a place in the heart Where a tear in the lining tore them apart A tear in the lining tore her apart The moonlight falls where the sun once shone Laura is wandering off on her own To walk to the water and wish on a star Trying to find out where they are Dying to find out who they are Now hush little Laura, if your heart don't sing Papa's gonna buy you a diamond ring But somehow that diamond ring don't shine When the lullaby comes on the telephone line (Singing Ahh...) Sing along with the Long Island Lullaby So you wait for the wind to blow your dreams to the land As you reach to the shore and write your name in the sand While the waves of the winter whisper a sigh And sing along with the Long Island Lullaby (Singing Ahh...) Sing along with the Long Island Lullaby The sun comes up as the paper arrives Telling the story of too many lives Laura only needed a reason to shine But Daddy didn't have the time Daddy never had the time

Paper Sundays, hazy afternoons Open windows, clouds and lost balloons I see you day after day in this autumn town I feel you all of the way down this common ground All of the way down this common ground Missing pictures, faded frames of empty squares Attic letters, awkward ladders leading there I hear you day after day - it's a harrowed sound I feel you all of the way down this common ground All of the way down this common ground I'm lonesome in jet lag; I'm frozen in phone tag You call me collect, I call me confused The drag in the line adds anxious to silence I want to plunge through the flood of these years Coming home to you I see you, I hear you, I feel you I see you, I hear you, I feel you I need you day after day - are you coming round? I feel you all of the way down this common ground All of the way down this common ground

Testify 03:53
Tell me, I'm wondering why I'm finding it so hard to testify Something stealing the breath from my chest Turning conviction to questions and jest Lord I'm weak; help me speak from your heart For you I would swim a sea of faces Through you my death defy To you I'm talking up a storm of praises But somehow I stutter when I try to testify Patience, I'm waiting for words Days pass, I still haven't stirred Always the heavens are telling your name How can your children do less than the same? Lord I'm weak; help me speak from your heart What if life was but a dream, but the dream was real as life? And the light was never seen, so we dreamed the dark was light? Someday someone will answer that call How can they when they don't hear us at all? Teach me Jesus to speak from your heart

Take It Back 03:31
You didn't do it, it's not your fault You were just the first thing to come in through the door I didn't mean it, I take it back Please ignore the plate still spinning on the floor You caught me at a bad time At a bad time, that's all We were having such a good time - what could have happened? I might have known it, I could have guessed I spin so many plates one's bound to hit the floor I'll leave you to it to clean up the mess At least it could be easier with one less Maybe you should go Maybe you should stay You decide - I didn't ask you over anyway You caught me at a bad time At a bad time, that's all We were having such a good time - what could have happened? You caught me at a bad time I've had a lot of bad times lately I never know, I never know what could have happened I let the worst get the best of me Why you want to come and collect what's left? I'm sure the show's not worth the fee Did you figure it'd be better than the last one? Maybe you should go Maybe you should stay You decide, I didn't ask you over anyway I didn't mean it, I take it back I couldn't turn away and leave you looking like that You didn't do it, it's not your fault You just caught me at a bad time Forget I said it, leave it in the past Let me take it back, please let me take it back

Giving It Up 04:06
I'm giving it up to Jesus I'm giving him all my praise I'm giving it up to Jesus today The battle ends in surrender But surrender is the start I'm laying down my arms, raising up my hands To wave the white flag above my heart Come and claim me, Lord I'm ready for my sentence It begins when I walk free My prison is your universe Great big heaven, great big earth And of all the places you could be You choose to walk with me Beneath the sin, behind the sun You find me every place I run I tried to keep things from you But I can't hide and I don't want to You see through me You see me through it all 'til all I see is you

Jill 05:09
I'm up before the rising sun; I can't be heard or seen I don my hand-me-downs and blend in with the scenery Candid in her calico, I'm camouflaged in courtesy But even though I turn my shoulder Turn my head to notice if she'll notice me I'm up a creek; I'm up a tree, my ladder's on the ground I ran to fetch her water, dove in deep and thought I'd drowned Stalwart in her Jericho, I'm banished at her balcony I swear someday I'm gonna bring that tower down I would be your Jack - would you be my Jill? I've been holding back, afraid to take a spill I raised the stakes; I'll roll the dice I made my wish; I'll pay the price I'll bring you back; I'll be your Jack I'll be your Jack, so be my Jill I'm up above the scattered clouds; I'm in a state of gray I try to call her name but echoes answer far away Paralyzed in vertigo, I'm paranoid of atrophy I fear someday I'm gonna break my starry crown And if push should come to shove, could I win her love? If I was king of every hill, would I still lose my will? I want to find that castle in the sky I want to climb the vines and make it mine And if I can't make it, it won't mean I didn't try Stranded in her Jericho, I'll barricade her balcony I swear someday I'm gonna sing that daughter down

Won't Let Go 05:19
Fly away; chart the stars in their courses Stars will stray; you will find me true Shy away from the lies, the divorces I will stay; you will find me true I gave you my heart I showed you my soul I've got you in my hand and I'm not gonna lose you Whatever the reason, whatever the treason All the wounds I know When I have chosen you I claim you for keeping As sure as I'm holding you I won't let go Ride away; run wild with your horses You will not run free 'til you're free in me Fight away; gather all of your forces You will not break free 'til you're free in me I gave you my heart I showed you my soul I sought you; I caught you I spent my blood and I bought you I'll rescue and retrieve you Open my arms and run to receive you I've got you in my hand and I'm not gonna lose you Whatever the reason, whatever the treason All the wounds I know When I have chosen you I claim you for keeping As sure as I'm holding you I won't let go
