Track Name: Keep It Simple
Let’s keep it simple no need for complication
There once were eyes who saw you cross the room
I tiptoed ‘round the edges of expectation, did you?

I always find I shy from the situation
But handsome you were already on the move
Then suddenly I fell into conversation…with you

I liked the sound of your "how do you do"
I had to laugh out loud as you tripped on your shoe
Your cheeks were red as roses and you asked if I’d go walkin’
with you? I’d love to

Do Do Do Do Do

For so long now I’ve wondered
How this story begins
When two should meet,
It’s all so sweet
I think it might be happening

Let’s keep it simple no need for complication
There once was I and darling you were you
But now that we have stumbled on declarations
There’s us, There’s us
Track Name: Hear Me Out
I was talkin' to talk
You were staring at me
Wonderin’ if I’d ever say what I mean

It was the easy way out
But better than the truth
Of giving up and lettin’ go of you
Of giving up and lettin’ go of you

Verse 2
I had fallen in love
With a mystery
And mistook it for your reality

When it became clear
I was all caught up
In a love that would never be enough
In a love that would never be enough

Chorus
Hear me out, Hear me out
For just a moment
Let’s be, Let’s be honest

Bridge
Empty promises
and loneliness

Verse 3
It’s time to say goodbye
I hope you understand
I’m a crazy fool and you’re an honest man

Someday you’ll see it’s true
And you’ll believe it too
That I was loving you more in lettin’ go of you
I was loving you more in lettin’ go of you
Track Name: All We Do Is Sleep
Verse 1
Wake up darling
This is the morning
We choose to live free

The binding is broken
The mending was spoken
Over you and me

Pre-CH/CH
Cause how can we capture
The wild blue yonder
When lovers dreams grow weary in slumber and
All we do is sleep
All we do is sleep
All we do is sleep

Verse 2
Wake up darling
See past horizons
The lines that we drew
Held fast to me and you

These roots grew for a reason
The truth came in seasons
Discovering you
A love made new

Pre-CH/CH
Cause how can we capture
The wild blue yonder
When lovers dreams grow weary in slumber and
All we do is sleep
All we do is sleep
All we do is sleep

Wake up darling
This is the morning
We choose to live free

Pre-CH/CH
Track Name: Ready This Time
Verse 1
You flew in with promise
And you built your home in my heart
With care you crafted your walls dear
But I loved you from the start

Chorus
So go on and love me
And say what’s on your mind
Come on and trust me
I’m ready this time

Verse 2
So we filled the frames with our stories
But the dust settled for memories unclear
You longed for the freedom to hold me
But our strength was tethered in fear

Chorus
But go on and love me
And I’ll say what’s on my mind
Come on and trust me
When I say I’m ready this time

Bridge
I will be here waiting
I will hold the line
You can take your time love
I’ll make the most of mine

Chorus
But go on and love me
And I’ll say what’s on my mind
Come on and trust me
When I say I’m ready this time
Track Name: Night Owl (Who Are You)
Verse 1
Night Owl, you caught me dreaming
I know
I should be sleeping
I’ve got you on my mind

Night Owl, I was just wishin’
For the
Love I’ve been missing
Someday you’ll be mind

Pre-Ch
And though I’ve yet to meet ya
Don’t even know your name
I hope you feel the same

Chorus
Who are you
Who are you
Who are You

Verse 2
Night Owl, what can you tell me?
Is he
Do you think maybe
Dreaming of me too?

Night Owl, now don’t you tease me
This could
Could be so lovely
If what you say is true

Pre-Ch
Cause though I’ve yet to meet him
Don’t even know his name
I hope he feels the same
Track Name: Colored With Roses
Pedaled through to mysteries
Telling tales of tall grass seas
Setting sail to lands unknown
A vast world waiting outside our home
A cardboard castle became our kingdom
Trees a place to roam with freedom
Much is lost in space and time
Still I find these places within my mind


With much to discover
And much to define
Our view was colored with roses
And no thought of fear
No place for pain
A time when nothing could stop us
No not a thing


Stars replaced by city light
And sounds more frightening then their sights
Buildings paint a welcome sign
Concrete castles ten thousand stories high
I wondered down the streets with you
Tore the map and fumbled our way through

CHORUS

Ooooo

Picture frames and photographs
Bridging memories from the past
With you, With you
Oh how it was to be so young
Living breathing for the fun
With you, With you

CHORUS
Track Name: Past This Part (feat. David Ramirez)
Stay just a little bit longer
If I were a little bit stronger of heart
I wouldn't dare
Leave you, leave you standing there

Oh we can handle this
If we give just a little bit more
More than a lingered goodbye
Too stubborn to try
Oh why can't we see past this part

Choose your weapons wisely
I am delicate darling and I
I couldn't heal
From the words, words you couldn't feel
Track Name: Make It Through
I will build a home for you and me my love
We’ll marvel at the beauty as our dreams unfold
We’ll make a plan
I’ll work the land
Till harvest dear
Don’t worry darling, have no fear, for I am near

We’ll make it through
We’ll make it through
As long as we’re together dear
We’ll make it through

Years went by we filled our lives with many dreams
Three girls a boy, and so much joy
You can’t believe
But plans we made will have to wait
Just one more year
Though times are tough, We’ll have enough, I promise dear

We’ll make it through
We’ll make it through
As long as we’re together dear
We’ll make it through

The kids are grown and on their own, and here we stand
35 years later, we’re still hand and hand
And though my eyes have aged
My heart still knows your gaze
And darling rest assured my love will never fade

We’ll make it through
We’ll make it through
Year by year I’ll love you dear
We’ll make it through
Track Name: Say Anything
VS 1
So here we are
Silent wondering where to start
A perfect mess
Anxious wondering who moves next

Questions in your eyes
Questions in your eyes

Say anything
Say everything
Please take the time
Say what’s on your mind (2x)

VS 2
Consider this
The love we share is worth the risk
If it’s not enough
Then tell me where does that leave us

Questions in your eyes
Questions in your eyes

Say anything
Say everything
Please take the time
Say what’s on your mind

Bridge
Distance has a way of easin’ in
Beginning what now seems to be the end
Listen I’m not tryin’ to push you out
I know, we got a lot to talk about

Say anything
Say everything
Please take the time
Say what’s on your mind (2x)
Track Name: Happy
Verse 1
You say you wanna marry me
I say that’s a very good possibility
Cause I sure do love ya
So you call your ma and pa
And I’ll make the long distance call
To Indiana

CHORUS
Cause I do oooo
Do oooooo
I do

Verse 2
You shone with your twinklin’ eyes
That shine took my surprise cause I
I wasn’t ready for fallin’
My feet had barely touched the ground
When you started hangin’ around
And you, you were callin’ me baby

CHORUS
Cause you knew ooo
Knew ooo It’s true
Oh you do oooo
You do

Verse 3
So we’ll live a quiet life
I’ll be your sweet little lovin’ wife
Cause you, your mine one and only
And we’ll share this band of gold
And no other hand will hold
The love, that’s within our story

CHORUS
And we’ll be eeee
Be eee
So ooo happy
Yes we’ll be eee
Be eee
So ooo Happy
Track Name: BONUS* Love Is On The Other Side
Oh my friend, I see you’re worried
Can you tell me what’s on your mind?
I’ll be your shoulder along highway
To help you walk another mile

Well your hurting, cause your heart’s beating
And that wont’ stop while your alive
But there is beauty all around us
Friend I see it in your eyes


Love is on the other side
Love is on the other side
Love is on the other side
We are not alone, no
Love is on the other side

When the night is filled with sorrow
And the day can't find the light
There is rest for the weary
Lay down your burdens my child and close your eyes

Cause hate will separate us
From the things we believe
But let the love that guides us onward
Makes a friend of enemies

CHORUS

Now peace be with you
When the end is drawing near
And may the face of God greet you
In heaven my friend

CHORUS
