#8 (Live) (free) 03:00
On those vintage days of June The sky was worn and bruised Like sleepless eyes And gently spilled the rain We were lush and bright Like moths to a light Our house of cards Would never see the ground Summer came and it Broke upon us like Roman candles in the sky Trade your coins for a Handful of wildflowers and Let the summer rain Sing you to sleep Summer sing you to sleep The promises to keep Would run like rivers deep Like letters sent Adrift upon the wind But seeds tend to grow And you shall ever know You were a lighted window At the end of my street

Ash Wednesday (Live) (free) 03:15
Ash Wednesday Where the new moon expired I slept, but my heart was awake Scatter the ashes of what used to be Confessing in the light of Your flame Coming back home as the mercury and the snow come down Giving You all of me that I am able Intentions burned up, down to the ground, like ashes & dust Feasting on the crumbs from Your table I’m feasting on the crumbs from Your table Running to You like a child Scared of the edges of the night A cross of ashes in Your home with no walls Begging Your flame to be my light Coming back home as the mercury and the snow come down Giving You all of me that I am able Intentions burned up, down to the ground, like ashes & dust Feasting on the crumbs from Your table I’m feasting on the crumbs from Your table Forty days Shades of black & white & grey Forty days Shades of black & white & grey Coming back home as the mercury and the snow come down Giving You all of me that I am able Intentions burned up, down to the ground, like ashes & dust Feasting on the crumbs from Your table Feasting on the crumbs I’m feasting on the crumbs I’m feasting on the crumbs from Your table

Avalanche (Live) (free) 04:28
Bracing for the avalanche Waking up the sleepers Where you go, I will go And hang out with the dreamers April seven, you’re waking up To the brighter side of what’s making up your little world The flowers and the season bloom Like the daylight shining in the room In the place that you now call home In the air, you feel the change Suddenly, your splintered trust is rearranged Thinking love is worth the fall The damage healed, and truth is all that remains You and me can wander far I feel I could bottle up the stars and give them to you But I’m not sleeping, I’m waking now And ready to see exactly how this all plays out “Make something of your life,” they say You find you have, and those voices fade away Thinking love is worth the fall The damage healed, and truth is all that remains Tell me, ‘cause I may be wrong But I’m thinking maybe I belong Thinking love is worth the fall The damage healed, and truth is all that remains Truth is all that remains Truth is all that remains Truth is all that remains

The Light & the Sea The wind on the water This sea is dark as wine Did you get my letter? Restlessly passing the time All I want is redemption To make this right and new This light burns inside of me A silver fire for you When daylight fades and these Fears rush in I need your grace You’re whispering Don’t forget in the darkness What you found in the light This candle is burning down On this wind-blown night Don’t forget in the darkness What you found in the light This candle is burning down Don’t leave me alone in the night Did I hear you speak to me Or was it only a dream? The stars flutter up in the sky Of this mystery All I want is redemption Overstepping this line in the sand This light burns inside of me As you reach for my hand The daylight fades and these Fears rush in I need your grace You’re whispering

The Weather (Live) (free) 03:58
Diamonds in the sea On an empty beach Last time you were here with me The weather’s cool and clear Wind and waves are all I hear I wish that you were here And I wonder what you’re thinking When you look up at the stars And the constellation That we used to claim as ours And I wonder in this moment If you’re thinking of me, too When all that I can do Is think of you I’m here without you Oh, here without you Some memories don’t fade The way that night time turns to day As gentle waves cascade It thrills my heart for me to know Your love for me has only grown I love you more than you could know The weather’s cool and clear Wind and waves are all I hear I wish that you were here
