Track Name: Wonders of The Skies
I wanna pick up the world and shake it
And see if it will rain or snow
I wanna pick up the world and spin it
And see if it will stand up on its own
Gravity it defies it
So why can't it defy the gravity in me

Give into the light
That comes from celestial nights
We're all made up of
The same stuff that makes up the
Wonders of the skies

I wanna pick up my dreams and dream em
Just like they were meant to be dreamt
I wanna write a song and sing it
Just like it was meant to be sung
Effortlessly and free
Just like the wind whispering through the trees

Give into the light
That comes from celestial nights
We're all made up of
The same stuff that makes up the wonders of the skies

The universe we see
All this connectivity
And together we're free
If we just give into the light
That comes from celestial nights

Give into the light
that comes from celestial nights
We're all made up of
the same stuff that makes up the wonders of the skies
Track Name: Long Run
You're starin at my back cause I'm lookin out for you
I can't keep track of all I've said or done for you
To keep us here in the place for the long run
But all I can say is that I'm here In this place for the long run

I'm here your there hands in the air holding on to what we vowed to keep
Above our heads when we were young 2001
When the sky wasn't high enough
To keep our love from takin off for the long

The winter time comes and the days are short
These nights are getting cold
You say I don't know if I can do this no more
I'm tired I'm getting old
I say look into my eyes and tell me what you see
My soul can tell no lies
Let's just live in mystery
For the long run

For the long run
Track Name: Heart Beat
Give me one smile just one, one more smile
It carry me all the way back home
And those eyes when they shine they light my life
They carry me all the way back home

Hold my hand squeeze it tight and and pull me in
Draw me closer to you
Feel my chest pressed up against your breast
Draw me closer to you

Feel our hearts beat
Just like a drum beat
Altogether in sync
Then repeat

Take one step right foot and then the next
Step by step down this road
Now take two steps this time left foot and then the next
Step by step back home

Feel our hearts beat
Just like a drum beat
Altogether in sync
Then repeat

We'll just fall in love again
Fall in love again
Track Name: Starlight Creek
If I could turn back time I would I would
Turn your pain to mine, I would I would
Wash away the words you endured today
In the silence of the dew drops on the ground

I love the way your face is light and dark
Cheeks high like a flame, your eyes they spark
I give into the land like the way you do
And let me soul rest deep in pools of blue

Don't know how you came from there to here
But I know why you stayed right here, no fear
You let those men pull you up from your snowy end
And showed you love like your fathers only knew

How to turn skies of grey into solitude and grace
And drown your pain away in the rhythm of Starlight Creek

Amazing how you live your life like that
Shouldering the pain of white men on your back
Now you're free in the mountains and the breeze
As you flow effortlessly down the banks of Starlight Creek
Track Name: Been a Long Time Comin
Been a long time comin
But the road is clear ahead
I have you by my side
I'd choose no one instead

Been a long time comin
Through the distance and the pain
Through the snow and driving rain
I'd do it all over again

When the storm clouds were rollin in
You stood by my side and said it'll be alright, it'll be alright
And when waves were crashin down real hard on my back
You said it'll be alright
It'll be alright

Been a long time comin
Our hands calloused our egos bruised
We vowed to win and never lose with the hand we were dealt

Been a long time comin
Heartache and tears along the way
Dark nights too long no one would stay to see the light of a new day

When the storm clouds were rollin in
You stood by my side and said it'll be alright, it'll be alright
And when those waves were crashin down real hard on my back
You said it'll be alright
It'll be alright

Been a long time comin
But now the load begins to lighten
The lights begin to brighten as change settles in

Been a long time comin
Since that sparkle in your eyes carried us from our demise
To see the light of a new day

And when the storm clouds were rollin in
You stood by my side and said it'll be alright, it'll be alright
And when those waves were crashin down real hard on my back
You said it'll be alright
It'll be alright
