Track Name: Come & Play
COME & PLAY

Born of the light,
the kind that knows no shadows.
A spark in the dark, you compel
the clouds to draw back their curtains.
By yourself you’re never lonely.
But, together we’ll be unstoppable.
Come and play.

Bathed in glow.
Wrapped like a promise.
Gracefully the purest
form of bliss.
Asleep in your dream.
Awakened by one simple kiss.
Wake, baby,
come and play.

Now that I have grown,
I can lift you from your cradle.
We’ll make our escape,
under tables and behind long curtains.
By ourselves,
we can make believe for hours.
Pretend the mirror’s a window
to another place.
Come and play.

Bathed in glow.
Wrapped like a promise.
Gracefully the purest
form of bliss.
Asleep in your dream.
Awakened by one simple kiss.
Wake, baby,
come and play.

We run circles,
chasing, racing.
Tiny heroes,
we’re the kings and the queens.
Reckless rough house,
collapsing, laughing.
But, what’s that murmur?
I can feel your heart race.

Track Name: So Much Soul
SO MUCH SOUL

Soft and gentle strong,
light of life, uplift us all.
Kind pushes and a voice
for soothing storms.
Good. Also warm.
First-hand truths inform your gifts.
Words so wise
and honest helping hands.

So much soul you have.
It radiates.
I always feel safe with you.
...everyday.

Song, sing me one.
Quiet grace is what you show.
Age of a spirit so much younger.
Eyes light for me.
Wide awake you seize the day.
Slow, I don’t want you
to break down now.

So much soul you have.
It radiates.
I always feel safe with you...

...everyday of my story.
Everything that you know
I want to know.
And, my life goes on
beyond familiar streets.
Still you’ll always stay
close beside me.

So much soul you have.
It radiates.
I always feel safe with you.

Track Name: Climb
CLIMB

far away and right near by.
hysterical terror from all sides.
a window,
let us find a new way to climb.

a curse of crushing closing in.
a silent void from a piercing din.
a window,
let us find a new way to climb.

a calm, quiet climb.
a step closer,
a lift toward heaven.

hurt and anger all at once.
a scattered search for heaven on earth.
a window,
let us find a new way to climb.

no way to measure what's out there.
please be strong. our work is here.
a window,
let us find a new way to climb.

a calm, quiet climb.
a step closer,
a lift toward heaven.
