Track Name: #8 (Live)
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
Track Name: Ash Wednesday (Live)
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
Track Name: Avalanche (Live)
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
Track Name: The Light & The Sea (Live)
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
Track Name: The Weather (Live)
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
