  • 03:15 Lyrics
    Loose End
    Not every goodbye is beautiful, Not every break is clean
    Some deaths are slow and painful like the one of you and me
    You wanted me to celebrate your moving on to better things
    After everything you put me through and how you left me with nothing
     
    CHORUS:  You can’t tie me up, you can’t say goodbye as if we’ll remain
    friends/ You can’t cross this T, You can’t dot this I, I’ll be your loose end
     
    Not every ending is happy, Not every wound will heal
    Not everybody will find love or know how loving feels
    You wanted me to wait me in line, conform just like the rest
    And shake your hand and say goodbye with wishes of the best

     CHORUS

    (INSTRUMENT BREAK)

    You can’t tie me up, you can’t say goodbye
    You can’t cross this T, you can’t dot this I
    You can’t right this wrong, you can’t make me cry
    You can’t have your way this time
    (Repeat)

    I’ll be your loose end…

  • 04:00 Story Lyrics
    Movin' On
    I won’t keep on loving you, I won’t miss the way this feels
    After everything you put me through
    I look forward to losing you
     
    CHORUS:  ‘cause I, I’m moving on
    to days that don’t include the hurt you gave
    And I, I’m getting strong
    And writing songs about moving on
     
    I won’t let the tears fall endlessly
    I won’t cry myself to sleep
    ‘cause I will heal my heart eventually
    And I know you weren’t my mine for keeps
     
    CHORUS

    (Guitar Solo)

    I’m moving on, I’m moving on, I’m getting strong and moving (Repeat three times)

    CHORUS

  • 03:59 Story Lyrics
    All It Takes to Fly
    When darkness enters in, you feel you’ve reached your limit
    and winter’s silent depths come to visit
    The branches of dead trees are bony fingers pointing
    at every last beauty leaving your story
     
    Pre-Chorus:  If you can’t find your footing
    no solid ground to stand on
    call on your angels waiting with your wings
     
    Chorus:  And fly baby, just try, the sky is waiting tonight
    a thousand tries is all it takes to fly
    Yes, fly baby, just try, the sky is waiting tonight
    a thousand tries is all it takes to fly
     
    The light will lead the way as all illusions fade
    you hear them call your name, the one that heaven gave
    They gather ‘round you now and welcome you abound
    and all your fears fall down as love surrounds
     
    Pre-Chorus 2:  They help you find your footing
    some solid ground to stand on
    they are your angels waiting with your wings
     
    Chorus
     
    (Instrument break)
     
    Pre-Chorus 1
     
    Chorus x2
  • 04:08 Lyrics
    Why Won't You Come to the Fair?
    CHORUS: 
    Why won’t you come to the fair?
    I’ve been waiting at the fair
    For you to show up, for you to take love
    And let it in to let it be enough
     
    The lights are so bright
    They light up the night
    And beckon to jubilee
    But something’s not right
    For you’re not in sight
    It seems that you’re always missing
    How could you give up so easily? 

    CHORUS

    Well, let’s take a ride
    For just one last time
    And pretend that you still believe
    We’ll live up the night
    Take love to new heights
    And breathe in a new reality
    Yes, pretend you had chosen me

     CHORUS

    Why won’t you come to the fair?
    I’ll be waiting… at the fair
  • 03:48 Lyrics
    Forever an Ocean
    You can have your stolen moments, you can have your eye candy
    I’ll write a song, I’ll write a song
    You can lie about your feelings, about any little thing
    I’ll write a song, I’ll write a song
     
    CHORUS:  Some are sweet and some are sad and some are angry ones
    There’s nothing that inspires me more in life than our love
    our love, our love, our love, our love
     
    I’ll be forever an ocean and you will remain the flame
    but trust is gone, the trust is gone
    You can put your work before me and everyone before me
    I’ll write a song, I’ll write a song
     
    CHORUS
     
    (guitar solo)
     
    CHORUS
     
    Our love, our love, our love, our love
  • 03:00 Story Lyrics
    Truth Is on Its Way
    Sometimes you can’t help it when love is travelling through
    The ley lines are all open and love has found its truth
    And many are connecting in the spirit of today
    So don’t worry ‘bout tomorrow
    For the truth is on its way (x2)
     
    And one you’ll be healed of all infirmities
    That are teaching you the lessons of whatever your soul needs
    So grow your inner garden, feel the kiss of a soft breeze
    While the splashes of your fountain of youth finds you your peace
    And the torches on the mountain pay homage to our yesterdays
    So don’t ruminate on regrets
    For the truth is on its way (x2)
     
    Everything in its own time reveals answers with God’s grace
    When you’re ready, trust in kind that truth is on its way
     
    Feel the many still connecting in the spirit of today
    And don’t worry ‘bout tomorrow
    For the truth is on its way (x2)
  • 04:06 Lyrics
    Somewhere in California
    I hear you're there somewhere in California
    I can't help from feeling somewhat left behind
    I hope you find your own version of bright lights
    the kind that you left here looking to find
     
     
    CHORUS: I kinda wish I could've been those bright lights
    And I kinda wish I made your eyes shine
    or saw myself reflected in their essence
    but all I saw was my reflection cry when you said goodbye
     
    So I'm waiting for a postcard of California
    and wonderin' how you're doing, I hope well
    sometimes I wish you would've asked me along
    but I don't know if I would've gone as well
     
     
    CHORUS
     
    Good luck out there somewhere in California
    I'm glad one of us is chasing our dreams
    I want you to know that my dream was to be
    with you wherever you find you might be
    so I'm hope I'm there somewhere in California
    as part of you that you'll always be remembering
    and inspiring you to always follow your dreams
     
     
    Goodbye out there somewhere in California
  • 04:19 Lyrics
    The Music Our Love Makes
    CHORUS:  Oh, the music our love makes
    Oh, it gives more than it takes
    And Oh, I’m no longer afraid
    Of the music our love makes
     
    In my dreams, we are still together
    Handling the weather that may come our way
    In my dreams, harmony’s forever
    Melodies of you and me do sing
    But I am strong, even in the coldest nights I’m warm
    ‘cause you’re love sings my heart
     
    CHORUS
     
    Though apart, we can still decipher
    Every song we offer to us
    And to our love we write every letter
    Every note is a reflection of
    The highest love through the years of separation was
    Ever abundant
     
    CHORUS x3
  • 03:58 Lyrics
    I Know What to Say
    I have a history of using the wrong words and saying the wrong things
    And I have a tendency to limit what I learn and censor what I sing
    But I know what to say now
    If you should come around
    And I know who I love now
    With clarity I’ve found
     
    CHORUS:  I love you, I miss you, you’re the love of my life
    I’m sorry I hurt you and that I wasted time
    Being lost and confused, distracted and used since I had you
     
    I have a symphony of songs that you’ve not heard
    paintings you’ve not seen
    And I have a raging sea of love with such wonder if it was set free
    Though I know what to say now
    Too many stand around
    What I hold in my heart now
    Will one day sing out loud
     
    CHORUS
     
    Instrumental
     
    Yes I know what to say now if you should come around
    And I know who I love now with clarity I’ve found
     
    CHORUS
  • 02:53 Story Lyrics
    When California's Gone
    Maybe you will love me when California’s gone
    Maybe you will see me when it falls into the ocean
    If it’s true what I sing then I hope it won’t be too long
    ‘til you finally come to love me
    When California’s gone
     
    Maybe you will shake fear when California’s gone
    Maybe you will see clear when it falls into the ocean
    And together we will be making up for all the time lost
    And our love will be set free
    When California’s gone
     
    BRIDGE: 
    I can’t wait, so anticipating the end of all the superficial things
    We’ll drown the hate in a sea of love so loving
    That nothing keeps us from God’s company
     
    REPEAT Verse 1
