Track Name: Better Off Now
I nearly checked out
And didn’t know what I was thinking
I couldn’t stop myself from sinking

Soon as I calmed down
I tried to wipe away the ruins
But didn't know what I was doing

Better off now
Cause I know just what you do for me
Now I see
And when I feel down
I can latch on to this memory
You pull it out of me

There was a time when
I tried to analyze the laughter
Not sure if I had earned the pleasure

But every good deed
Reminded me of where I come from
Now I wonder why it took me so long

Breath, could this be? I am breathing

Better off now
Cause I know just what you do for me
Now I see
And when I feel down
I can latch on to this memory
You pull it out of me

Better off now
Cause I recognize a greater need
What I should be
So glad you’re around
No, I never thought you’d wait for me
I’m finally free

Don't know how it took me so long (I feel better)
Track Name: Gravity
Here we are, just like I wanted
We’ve come this far and I appreciate
The air of you
Your heart is true
So many things, my words escape me

Your big brown eyes
They’re like a doorway
I step inside, and see my future clear
What I should do
And who I belong to
Begins with you, and doesn’t end

Now I’m floating
Need someone to take hold of me
Guide me gently
It’s been a while, now it’s hitting
Call the jury
I’m high on love, come pursue me
Call the jury
I’m high on love, come pursue me

Sometimes I sink in my opinions
I'm out and in without a reason, then
I search for you
Even a pic will do
My breath comes through
And I'm released, yea

Now I’m floating
Need someone to take hold of me
Guide me gently
It’s been a while, now it’s hitting
Call the jury
I’m high on love, come pursue me
Call the jury
I’m high on love, come pursue me
Track Name: Walls
Breathe in and sit back down
What now?
(I wasn’t ready for it)
(I wasn’t ready for it)
Coat off and empty pockets out
I can’t find it

Everything is moving away
I’d speak but I don’t know what to say
A little time and I’m me again
Just give me 24 hours, then...
You’ll see a change

Find ten, and backwards count
I was a boy then
(Could you identify it?)
(Could you identify it?)
Earnest, I made a vow
Called to action

Everything is moving away
I’d speak but I don’t know what to say
A little time and I’m me again
Just give me 24 hours, then...
You’ll see a change

I can feel my priorities
Shifting in me like a growing pain
I take a step, but don’t move my feet
Cause my mind has put me under the sheets again
This is the way of a serious man
Living with the consequences of bad plans
A little time and I’m me again
Just give me 24 hours and you’ll see a change
Track Name: How Do We Proceed?
What does a smile keep when painted?
Like saying ‘so sorry’ with no intent
(To change the way that you go)

Got to be real now cause it’s different
Than what was real then on that mission
Way back then
Far from home

So this is what my soul looks like
So this is what my soul looks like when it’s melting
And this is what my soul looks like
And this is what my soul looks like, can you fix me?

In the morning when my eyes open
I am inspired by your graciousness
(I let the sun shine in)

Because there is no greater love than this
It makes the oh so bad feel so weightless
You alone

Can show me what my soul looks like
You can show me what my soul looks like when it's melting
So this is what my soul looks like
So this is what my soul looks like, can you fix me?

I’m crying out to you cause this is what I need
Want to live my life with you and no longer be incomplete
Not gonna lie to you, so how do we proceed?
Want to live my life with you and no longer be incomplete
Track Name: Catching Lightning (II)
Another landscape come to shore
I can see it, but I can't explore
I put my hands up and let it fall
I think I've seen this place before

I want to build my own
So I close my eyes and put away the pieces
Carefully this gift to me will find a way
To carry the weight of my heart

Catching lightning
Use it to start a fire
I can see it
Brighter, brighter, brighter, brighter
Catching lightning
Find my way home

It's like a dream that I can't recall
I wake up and it all dissolves
I read books to help me think
Of all the big things that I could be

I want to build a home
Where the sticks and stones
Can hold away the wicked
Piece by piece, this little tree
Will stand over me
And bury the roots of my fear

Catching lightning
Use it to start a fire
I can see it
Brighter, brighter, brighter, brighter
Catching lightning
Find my way home
