Track Name: Start Over
Inside this castle,
This glass enclosure
My heart was open,
And you were knocking

You came and found me,
Destroyed my armies
While I was screaming,
You were knocking

So can I just start over
Track Name: Remain
Broken heart, wipe your tears
Pick yourself up again
Keep beating on

If the end has come, what’s left of me?
Fill these hands with strength again
Keep moving on

Give me love always,
Give me joy always,
You remain, You remain

Carry the torch, carry the flame
While everyone is watching you
Everyone surrounding you

Carry the light, the burden undone
Carry me away from here, carry me away

All my fears that won my attention,
In my thoughts, lost discretion,
But you came along and bore my affliction
You remain
Track Name: Composed
Die to try another day
Another way to say “I’ll wait”
All my life, a bitter loss
Keep me still and keep me close

So I won’t start, won’t start
Running away

Die to try another day
Another way to say “I’ll wait”
We forced our lives like loaded guns
Keep me still and keep me close

I won’t start, won’t start
Running away

Keep me composed
Keep me safe
Keep me afloat so I won’t break

I won’t run
I won’t shake
Just keep me composed
Keep me safe

Close my eyes, Hold my breath
The best is yet to come, the best is yet to be
Close my eyes, keep me still
The best is yet to come, the best is yet to be
Track Name: Never Let Me Go
In the stillness, I hear your footsteps
Walking towards my dreams
Telling me to wake up wake up
It’s time to go

Every time I’m king, you tear down my walls
You block away my arrows, you overtake my throne
Every time I sleep, you haunt my dreams
My nightmares turn to daylight, my fears let go of me

In the silence, I hear your whispers
Telling me it’s time to dream again
Telling me to move one, move on it’s time to go

Every time I escape, you reach out to me
You’re always watching, you never let me go
Every time I fall, you pick me up again
Meet me where I am, you never let me go
Every time I walk into the wilderness,
You keep your eye on me, you never let me go
Every time I run, I run into your arms
Kicking and punching, you never let me go

So meet me where I am, Keep me where I’m safe
My demons still chase me, while my ghosts still haunt me
Meet me where I am, Keep me where I’m safe
You’ll always be watching me, You’ll always be watching me
Track Name: Growing Old
Wake me from my sleep,
Wake me from the ashes
I built my kingdom up
I made my kingdom strong

I was tired of the waiting
I was tired of the falling
You tore my walls down
As I tried to keep them up

The sun begins to set, the moon begins to rise
I’m holding my breath
I close my eyes

Nothing stays the same, everything will change
Now I’m growing old
Track Name: Everyone
I will set sail to land unknown to me, of possibilities
Frayed, fractured and alone
Your voice still calls me home, pull me off the shore

So tell me now to face my sorrows,
To face what I have done, in fear of everyone
You can be the fight in my sorrows
The fight in what I’ve done, in fear of everyone

I will set sail to land unknown to me, of possibilities
You live beyond the sea,
A land unknown to me, of possibilities
Track Name: Move Along
Wake up from your slumber, now, it’s time to go
Leave your bed of secrets far behind you as your castles fall
And the memories in your head will overflow

Feel the rush moving through your bones
It’s flowing through your head now, burning through your chest now
Our chains will fall
Every time we have it all we never seem to get it all, the story goes
Every time we have it all we never seem to get it all, the weight the past

Lay your shackles down
In the fire, in the flame
The past will hunt you down
Come on and move along, don’t fight by yourself
Track Name: The World Moves On
Hold on hope
Hold on grace
We’ll make it through another way
We’ll make it through another day

Hold on joy
Hold on grace
We’ll try another way
We’ll try another day

As the world moves on,
The world moves on
While everybody’s waiting
You and I are dreaming
Track Name: Walk Away
I want to be your friend
I want to trust myself again
To follow in your steps
Take the past off my back

Don’t walk away, walk away
While my fear is trembling
Don’t walk away, walk away
While my heart is stumbling

Take me to your house
Show me the way to love again
I want to be made well
Hang the future on a shelf

I want to be well
I want to be well
Track Name: Everything I Knew
Your arms they hold me in the darkest night
You told me everything would be OK
Even as the storm came through

You tore apart
Everything I knew
Everything I was
Everything I would become

My fears turned into fire
My tears back into joy
You call my name, my sorrow shakes
You call my name, your love will rip right through
Track Name: Shadows
Oh my God, what just happened?
Is this the end or just the beginning?
Oh my God, I know it’s over
But still I know love lasts forever

I once made myself a prisoner
Locking my heart from the sweetest endeavors
You had seen at what I created
Rescued my life from intoxication

As the ship is sinking now, don’t let me drown
As the night turns back to dawn, what will be found?
Fight away the dark side of my mind
Flood this empty soul in your light

Take me far away
Take me far from here
I want to be where you are
I want to go where you stay
