Transit 04:19 video
I'm traveling through tunnels that only burrow to dead ends, Trapped by the earth above us, so blind to what we're living in. Will I rise to see the sun in distant point of view? Shine bright, city lights, when I come back home to you. The open road I wish for would always seem to reassure, But as a landscape passes, a blur obscuring who we were… Day by day I journey on, submerged by stomping feet Late at night I crawl on back, enduring cold and heat. To forge ahead unknowing, Can be a burden filled with fear, But as we journey onward Remember constants always near: In the transit of our lives, discover something new. Shine bright, moonlight song, I swear I'll fall back into you. I'll fall back into you.
Know You 04:35
Do you ever stop and think about the past? And the walls that we made to keep us safe. But in storm, they say shelter May come on its own dear. Open heart, lead the way, I need you… Let me get to know you. Do you ever hear a voice beyond the wall? It’s a song never heard before. But in time, we can hum along in peace together. Open ears, show me love, I hear you… Let me get to know you. Take the time to walk a mile In those foreign shoes. Find out where that path may lead, You are all I need…. All it takes is just a Simple question asked, Nothing more, let the Floodgates flow. Speak your mind And we’ll unlock All the keys to healing. Feeling me hearing You speak clearly, Let me get to see you, Let me get to hear you, Let me get to feel you, Truly now I know you.
Clinging 05:09
In the face of cruel and cold, yes it is… When they break you down to bits, Will the glue hold over time? Sure as I will hang on to what’s mine. Clinging, clinging, sticking to the plan Even while I’m knowing the only way To live that I understand. Chasing, erasing, forging from The past, cause shadows never last. So hard to forget the hurt of hate, With no master above to dole out fate. All backed up, no place to run. Hear the song it sings That we shall overcome. If you’re slipping hold on tight. Trust yourself and you’ll find what’s right. What’s beyond that fading river bend? Through the fog you’ll find it never ends.
