Live Between 04:42
Winter's come and gone But it's still cold You're on my mind So I'll live between Our life And what if I would die? Would you be with my all through the night? But you're on the other side Of life So where does that leave us? You hurt me So I'll live Between Our life
Dear 05:34
Time is dripping like candles Burn through the night I'll stare out the window and freeze in the light Life is starting to move you Away from my side Can I let go my anger Or does this feel right? I was lonely wasted, and crying But I can't wait forever I'm gonna buckle under pressure I guess that I'm a failure And now it's behind me Rain washed my soul, come clean me You're free to speak your mind I'll sit by the window solo And burn through the night You were tired of talking Tired of longing I pulled all my courage and gave you your time
Hope 04:58
I watched you slip away But now it's too late Heal, breath, my love Since you've been away My soul has been shaken I'm okay, my love Have hope You've got to trust a little more In or around faith Alive but not awake Have hope Just look up a little more Believe me We will be okay Maybe I'm just blind It’s my emotion Feel, see, my love If we disagree God why can't we believe? Is it me?
Hereafter 04:59
I'll keep quiet
Moonbeam 06:26
Wait I lay watching from my window Where I sleep Wait Moonbeam lazy Call me crazy I won't scream There were dreams Feeling, concept of time You were, the moon stayed all day Beaming light, always There were dreams of the way you were walking Feeling your presence with no concept of time You were late and the moon was out all day Beaming like it was always right


"This is what we're talking about. When the stars, the moon, the universe aligns and suddenly you know yourself again.
It's a moment of happiness, yes, but perhaps something bigger.
Moving from the river's violent current to the small, calm pool near the bank.
We'll be here, like a Riverbug,
awaiting your arrival so we can tell our story and you can tell yours."
