Track Name: Maybe We'll Die
With every crutch we make our way,
Down the road to a better place,
We’ll say, and we’ll crave.

We’ll move along slow, but sure
The crumbs will lead to the next door,
We want more!

Our change is more than in our thoughts,
Our lives are more than what we’ve bought,
Our plan is in our hands.

Hands are strong, but still a siv,
Plans fall through, but we’ll still live,
Be scared, but prepare.

And maybe, just maybe we’ll fly
Hey Hey x 3
And maybe, just maybe we’ll die
Hey Hey x6
But the door won’t open ‘til you turn the key.

Beneath the lines of simple thought,
Our caged dreams sit,
Don’t let them rot.
What’s real? Stand tall don’t kneel.

A heart is just some flesh and blood.
We’ll do with it what anyone could.
Tired of “should”, don’t cut us down.
Our misfit youth was our good fit truth,
All along.
But if everything, falls down.
I’ll pick you up
I’ll pick you up.

And maybe, just maybe we’ll fly
Hey Hey x 3
And maybe, just maybe we’ll die
Hey Hey x2
Track Name: Montana
This place knows nothing of my pocketbook,
But has come to know the weight of my foot.

We are home with the smoke of our chimney,
And the rock of our chair.
It is here I’ll call our home,
In the woods of Montana.

Ooooo

Hold me near the rivers’ edge,
The stream provides the melody,
And our fingers provide the song.

Here I can close my eyes without keeping one open,
I can rest my soul.

Ooooo

It’s hard to paint in color when your pallet is grey.
It’s easy to get into trouble when mother’s away.
Choking on smoke and smog, this winter has us in more than a fog.
So I’m going home.

With the smoke of our chimney and the rock of our chair.
Track Name: Seesaws and Skyscrapers
Up and down it’s the world we know,
Seesaws or stairs we’ll always go home to soon, we’ll go home to soon

Seesaws and skyscrapers, make believe and signed papers for who?
Is it all for you?

Muddy shoes or business noose, life sometimes makes it hard to choose, you will.

Tiddly winks or heart attack, keep your youth and watch your back, you will.
We hope you will.

Lemonade or accounting firm, time to live or be concerned,
Choose live.
It’s time to live.

Grab your trike or grab your car, either way you’re going to go far, you are.
We love you dear you make us proud, words that sometimes scream without a sound, just yell.

Oh’s X4

Seesaws and skyscrapers, grow old, but stay young forever we will.
We know we will.
Track Name: Bring Me Home
Bring me to the light, because I miss you.
Bring me to the light, because I love you,
and I can’t let you go.

No goodbye, what a lie, you were to me.
I’ll be right here by your side and watch you breathe, you said to me.
No more.

In my mind, not for my eyes you are to me.
I’m all alone, no pace to go, all I do is bleed, internally.
Bring me home.

Bring me to the light, because I miss you.
Bring me to the light, because I love you,
and I can’t let you go.

A future’s past, no present left, I’m coming home.
To where you are, and where we’ll be, no more alone.
I’m leaving now, my mind is made, I can’t change my fate,
You’ll see.

Bring me to the light, because I miss you.
Bring me to the light, because I love you,
and I can’t let you go.
Track Name: Gentle Breeze
Oooooo x3

Kind stranger, can you lend me a seat,
These weary feet have got to rest,
And I fear they’ve got the best of me.

Shadow woman, hop off that road and have some tea with me.

Where did you come from?
What did you do?
And may I ask you my dear what you got yourself into?

I’ve never had a home, I only roam, roam, roam, roam, roam.

Gentle breeze, carry me home. x2

I don’t know what it means to root,
My heart pains, I never know the truth.

My mind is tired, tattered and torn,
Like this road I am worn, worn, worn, worn.

Gentle breeze, carry me home x2

The seed doesn’t fight where it grows,
The wind never battles where it blows,
Hungry sun, thirsty rain, truth revealed, no more pain. x2

Kind stranger, you’ve shown me my roots and I am born a new,
My shadow in the dark, no longer black and blue.

Like water in a glass, I’m refreshed and clear,
Neither ahead nor behind, I’m simply here.

Oooooo x3
Track Name: Pave This Road
Here I am, staring at this barren road,
The weight of the world seems to be a heavy load,
I can’t burden myself with this weight,
Now is not the time to hesitate,
I know I’ll be okay,
I’m gonna pave this road today.

Soon, I’ll be starting again,
My home with be different then anywhere I’ve been,
I’m anxious to know my fate
My eyes fixated straight,
Just take my hand you’ll see,
The man I’m bound to be.

Please, don’t be scared for me,
I’m the luckiest man that I ever could be,
Even though my body’s home has changed,
My heart’s home will remain the same,
I may be gone for now you see,
But you’re always here with me.

I may be gone for now you see,
But you’re always here with me.
Track Name: Song For You
Your hair is long, but not so long as before
your heart is kind, and I only want more
You smiled, me too
and then we flew

It was today to the year, when our hearts met and we shared a cheap beer
You said 'dear I've been waiting all summer'
and I said 'I know my dear, and I'm sorry'
So you held me close and we made one thing clear

Your mom and dad sure are swell
and it’s a good thing that your hand fits mine well
I cried, you too
and then we knew

You are paving roads
that lead up to my home
cuz my home is anywhere with you
