CONCRETE
VERSE:
I’ll be the concrete you can stand on.
I’ll be everything you can rely on.
I’ll be the man that never goes.
I’ll be the man that never knows.
CHORUS:
Cast you worries upon my shoulder and let me in. Cast your anchor upon my shore and let me pull you in. VERSE:
I’ll be the concrete you can stand on.
I’ll be everything you can rely on.
I’ll be the man that never goes.
I’ll be the man that never knows.
CHORUS:
Cast you worries upon my shoulder and let me in. Cast your anchor upon my shore and let me pull you in.
BRIDGE:
I’m running, i’m running, i’m running as fast as i can from myself, from myself
(4 times through)
CHORUS:
Cast you worries upon my shoulder and let me in. Cast your anchor upon my shore and let me pull you in.
Track Name: Masters of Art
VERSE:
Your kindness runs deep
with everyone you meet.
Your wisdom is like a tree
with rings of age.

CHORUS:
Your body is pieced together by masters of art,
Your skin is more fair than a feather that caresses my heart.
Your lips calm the ocean within like your father in the wind
Your touch is lighter than air,
Your brighter than the sunlight in your hair.

VERSE:
Your love is like a thread bound tight
that keeps each page in place.
There is no shadows in your light
your honesty leaves no trace.

CHORUS:
Your body is pieced together by masters of art,
Your skin is more fair than a feather that caresses my heart.
Your lips calm the ocean within like your father in the wind
Your touch is lighter than air,
Your brighter than the sunlight in your hair.

ENDING
So... Let me in x4
Track Name: Just Need a Friend
VERSE:
Words come so easily when everyone pretends to be your friend.
I come from a broken home but I'm not the only one without a friend.

CHORUS:
Are you even here
behind that blank stare
My heart is more bare

VERSE:
Words disappear when the meaning are never clear I just lost a friend.
I come from a broken heart but I'm not the only one that just needs a friend.

CHORUS:
Are you even here
behind that blank stare
My heart is more bare
when you are here

ENDING:
Hey, Hey
How much do I owe you!
Track Name: Falling
VERSE:
Open my eyes
behind the door of disguise.
Close my eyes
Everything is fine.

CHORUS:
Falling slowly into your arms.
Falling so fast now that i cannot breathe.

VERSE:
Open my eyes
come home and open the door.
Close my eyes
I'm seeing so much more.

CHORUS:
Falling slowly into your arms.
Falling so fast now that i cannot breathe.
Falling slowly and now that i can breathe,
falling so fast now will not frighten me.

ENDING:
You keep me in my place!
Track Name: My Perfect Sky
VERSE:
My hands cover cracks of water
Trapped in a damn that pours through my fingertips

CHORUS:
My perfect sky don't turn blue
My perfect sky don't cry too soon

VERSE:

I built my home on a riverbed
A rushing wave taking away
The remains of the dead

CHORUS:
My perfect sky don't turn blue
My perfect sky don't cry too soon

LAST CHORUS:
My perfect sky don't turn blue
My perfect sky don't cry too soon
My perfect sky I love you
Track Name: Fountain
VERSE:
Every drop lowered by hand
softening the rust from each wish.
Morning dew flickers on grass like the stars of night.
A blooming rose in a stained glass window pasting notes of a chord on each petal. Morning dew flickers on grass like the stars of night.

CHORUS:
Fountain overflow
through and underneath
Fountain overflow
through and underneath

VERSE:
A windmill shuffling weeds of soil
for seed to grow.
Morning dew flickers on grass like the stars of night.
Daylight shines on the heart of each stem catching each fisherman.
Morning dew flickers on grass like the stars of night.

CHORUS:
Fountain overflow
through and underneath
Fountain overflow
through and underneath
renewing me
Track Name: Similar Motion
VERSE:
Why is my heart always looking somewhere in the distance?somewhere in the distance.
All that I had was gone in an instance, gone in an instance.
From what i can see is love in existence? love in existence.
CHORUS:
How long will you hide?
How long will i reside?
How long will you hide?
How long will i confide?
VERSE:
Why is my heart in contrary motion? Contrary motion.
All that i have is rooted in emotion’s, rooted in emotion’s.
I can see that your love is deep in the midst of the ocean, the midst of the ocean.
CHORUS:
How long will you hide?
How long will i reside?
How long will you hide?
How long will i confide?
Track Name: My Other Mind
VERSE:
My other mind
Trails behind
Waiting for me sleep

CHORUS:
It's that part of me
That cannot see
That I'm not you anymore
It's that part of me
That cannot see
That I'm not you anymore

VERSE:
It's inside your head
You don't know it yet
Stealing your side of the bed

CHORUS:
It's that part of me
That cannot see
That I'm not you anymore
It's that part of me
That cannot see
That I'm not you anymore
Track Name: In the Morning
I love you in the morning
When our hearts meet and I see
Secrets in melody
Underwater lips whispering your name
Promises I made that I will brake again
our hearts flee and I see
I will shed like falling leaves
Through seasons were free
The sun shines a blanket of warmth
For you and me and I see
I will shed like falling leaves
Through seasons were free
The sun shines a blanket of warmth
For you and me and I see
