Track Name: Only Time
Only Time

It’s been a long time since I’ve held my own heart
It seems I’ve been missin’ it, givin’ it away, person to person, part by part
I am tired of fallin, fallin’ down, in and out of love,
But I cannot, I will not, I refuse to give up

(Hums)

I cannot stay here, no no my dear, in this place of sorrow.
Holding on to me and you, this I cannot do, I need a new tomorrow.
Where did you hide my, where can I find my stolen heart?
I want to get on the right track
Yea it’s about time that I should be gettin’ it back, gettin’ it back, gettin’ it back.

But only time knows
Where a heart break goes
And only time can see
Where that heart will be
Only Time
Only Time knows
Only Time
Only Time can see
Where that heart will be
Track Name: Let's Be Frisbees
Let’s be Frisbees
We’ll fly through the air
Without a care
If you land in the trees
I’ll follow you there

Let’s be blankets
We’ll never be cold
Or so I’m told
And your warmth is endless
Embroidered with gold

Do ba do baaa doot dai yote dot dwee dat
Do ba do baaa do ba
Do ba do baaa doot dai yote dot dwee dat
Do ba dwee daaa da dum

Let’s be paintings
We’ll sleep on the wall
But we won’t fall
Our pictures engaging
The colors of all

Let’s be apple pie
Your sweetness in the crust
The taste of trust
You and I
A recipe of just…
Love!

Do ba do baaa doot dai yote dot dwee dat
Do ba do baaa do ba
Do ba do baaa doot dai yote dot dwee dat
Do ba dwee daaa da dum

Let’s be blue jeans
So comfy we will fit
And if we get
Worn out at the seams
It won’t matter one bit… no

Let’s be seashores
We’ll dance along the sand
Hand in hand
Holdin’ the doors
For water and land
Do ba do baaa doot dai yote dot dwee dat
Do ba do baaa do ba
Do ba do baaa doot dai yote dot dwee dat
Do ba dwee daaa da dum

Let’s be Frisbees
The wind in our hair
Land wherever you please
I’ll follow you anywhere
Track Name: Ocean Song
I am sailin’ on a boat,
Sailin’ on a boat,
Far away
I am sailin’ on a boat,
Far, far away

And I’m looking at the sky,
Looking at the sky,
Asking God why
Where do I go from here?

And is it me or the clouds passing by?

Well, I can’t go back no
I’ve got to keep, got to keep on
Cause I’m a wave, floating along
As one part of this ocean song
And though I’m drowning at sea and land can’t be found,
I’ll find my ground.

I am rowin’ to the shore now,
Rowin’ to the shore,
Just a little more
Ways to go.

And I’m trying to do my best,
Trying to do my best,
But if I compare myself to the rest,
I may drown.

So I won’t let this life pass me by

No, I won’t go back no
I’ve got to keep, got to keep on
Cause I’m a wave, floating along
As one part of this ocean song
And though I’m drowning at sea and land can’t be found,
I’ll find my ground.

Can’t quite, can’t quite figure it out, can’t quite figure it out
Can’t quite, can’t quite figure out how, but I’ve got to try.

I am sailin’ on a boat,
Sailin’ on a boat,
Far away,
I am sailin’ on a boat,
And I’m almost home.
Track Name: Come Back (And so do you)
A hole of black
Holds your soul captive
Inside the deep, dark, night part of your heart
So you, reside here.
But inside you my dear,
There lives a Light.

Can you feel it, feel it in your bones?
Something deeper, something true.
Like a tree, yes, a tree, a tree it grows.
It knows, it knows what to do.
And so do you.

If you could see
Past, what you think you were made to be.
Forget any memory of doubt.
Let your heart figure it out.

Can you feel it, feel it in your bones?
Something deeper, something true.
Like a tree, yes, a tree, a tree it grows.
It knows, it knows what to do.
And so do you.

Come back, come back from night.
Come back, come back to light. (2X)
Track Name: You're Not Mine
Coffee grounds
And the simple sounds
Of you and me and heartfelt laughter

You look up
From your empty teacup
And in your eyes I see my ever-after

If you loved me, like I love you
You would hold me, and wrap my love around you
We’d be closer than ever before
But it’s impossible to be more
If you’re not mine

You are gold to me
But I can’t see you anymore,
my heart is tired and done.

With broken words,
unspoken thoughts hurt.
I think it’s time I find a new someone.

But if you loved me, like I love you
You would hold me, and wrap my love around you
We’d be closer than ever before
But it’s impossible to be more
If you’re not mine
Track Name: A Hundred Hearts
I am here
And you are here
And we are here, and we are here,
and we are Loved.

Love is kind,
A patient mind
And everything, yes everything
works out in Time.

A hundred hearts fall from the sky
I look around, you catch my eye
A hundred hearts are dancing in the sea
And here you are
With me.

And if you cry, I'll cry with you.
And if you laugh, well I'll laugh too.
There's nothing that I wouldn't do.
Times may be hard, but we are strong.
Our love is like the wisdom of an ancient Song.

A hundred hearts fall from the sky
I look around, you catch my eye
A hundred hearts are dancing in the sea
And here you are
With me.

With you, I am Home.
With you, I am Free.
With you, I am Whole.
With you, I am Me.

A hundred hearts, a hundred hearts
A hundred hearts.
A hundred hearts are dancing in the sea
And here you are
With me.
