Track Name: If I Could Only
Me:
If I could only stare directly into the sun so bright
If I could only step directly into the ocean’s tide
If I could only stretch my arms up directly toward the sky
If I could only look directly into both of your eyes

I know I’m fine in your eyes
Like a child in your eyes

God:
I’ve been missing you
I have missed your smile
Since you’ve been gone
Welcome home!
Track Name: Your Love Won't Fade Away
When did I stop listening
And where did I go wrong
I’ve been searching for my fortune
But left behind my soul

I’ve been looking for that gold
Some treasure bought and sold
It always fades away

I’ve been working for my ego
In love with what I’ve made
Now I’m searching for some wisdom
In hopes that it can be undone

Now I’m a richer man
Much more than I could have been
Your treasure brings me hope
Your love won’t let me go
Your love won’t fade away

Your treasure brings me hope
Your love won’t let me go
Now I’m a richer man
Much more than I could have been
Your love won’t fade away
Track Name: My Lord My Friend
Wonderful today
Wonderful always
From the start to the finish
Wonderful along the way

Beautiful you are
Beautiful you’ll stay
You have come to light my way
Beautiful through all my days

You are my friend
You are my lord
Track Name: The Path
You gave me legs to walk
One among the flock
Yet I still, I wonder from this hill
You gave me hands to work
To build where darkness lurks
Yet I wait, I wasted all my time

All of my life
I have worked so hard to make myself
Into something I’m not
Now I can see
By the Son my Lord has given me
I will walk the path He paved for me

Teach me how to speak
Wisdom that I seek
My ears they hear
Please help me understand

All of my life
I have worked so hard to make myself
Into something I’m not
Now I can see
By the Son my Lord has given me
I will walk the path He paved for me

All of my life
You have waited there so patiently
For my heart to break
Now I am free
From this weight that has been bearing down
Now I am finally awake
Track Name: All My Days
Asleep again another day has come to end
Another chance for love that I have yet to spend
The gift of grace for us to freely receive
But thoughts of doubt and failure quickly deceive

We are young our hearts of fun
Born to run against the wind
We don’t see and try to flee
We’re born to run against the wind

Don’t want to be fading old and hazy
I want to be praising you all my days!

I don't deserve the love that you poured out on me
Jesus, so patiently you listen to my pleas
We are a generation caught up in the race
In you I lay my head you are my resting place
Track Name: All Along The Way
We’ve been searching
for the answers to this world we live in
all along the way
I’ve been walking
all alone a western desert empty
trying to find my way

I was awakened from my sleep
Somewhere on the way

They’ve been talking
all about the ways that Jesus saved us
calling it the way
Such a pure love
that God himself would smile upon me
that he would die for me

Waking the people from their sleep
All along the way

He longs to see your face
Free, He died in our place

Now I’m waiting
I’ll be waiting right here for my king
waiting for my king

To lift me up form this dark so deep
On that glorious day

He longs to see your face
Free, He died in our place
Track Name: Been Gone
And they say you will
Not change your mind
Why should you?
Now you’re leaving home
Out there on your own
But home is still home

You’re having the time of your life
But you miss everyone
“How long have I been gone”?

You’re feeling yourself change
From what you were yesterday
Is that so wrong?
Though friends may come and go
There’s one thing you should know
You’re not alone

This is the best time of your life
Why are you feeling low?
Relax you’re not alone no
You’re having the best time of your life
But you miss everyone
“How long have I been gone”?
