Track Name: Further Still
We're a procession rising to the occasion
But where are we leading? Where did we go?
Every choice is a thread in a tapestry of trees
With branches of chances all reaching towards the free air

Out there the horizon, see it separate us
From who we are from where we've been
Expanding far and wide across the divide
Limitless, limitless in our eyes

We are climbing up the mountains of our minds
And I'm in love with our intelligence
We are further still than we were

There is something new we feel in this old light
Orbiting sun and moon, we will barefoot our way through
I never quite identified this street
With eyes of a traveler reaching towards the free air

We are climbing up the mountains of our
We can rise, we can rise
We are further still than we were

I'm in love with our intelligence
I'm in love with our independence
I'm in love with our promises
Track Name: Magenta
Look to the East, I am the sky waiting to be seen
Purples and pinks all warmly welcoming
Don't leave this place in your mind

Silence, silence, close your eyes

Now soak it in, I am the mist softly clinging
Contrasting, clean, and silhouetting
Don't leave this place behind

Silence, silence, just your breath

Across acres of cloud covered night
Mind, identify a brightness stemming beneath
Simply feeling how to see
How to recognicze the glow
The glow known as "beauty"
Look to, look to me
Track Name: Linger
Breath danced with the smoke
On top the hill tonight
I wondered if I'd regret it

This view remains the same

I let the moment linger
In heat of engine fire
I wondered if I'd forget it

This view is always for me

Breath danced with the smoke on top the hill tonight
Track Name: Greenwood Pl.
There's something 'bout the way the light falls
And how it feels so warm in here
Every breath anchors me

Whisper that time can never take you

There's something 'bout the way the light falls
And how it feels so warm in here
Every breath anchors me
I'll always feel it deeply in my bones
Every feeling that I felt in these walls
Every breath that held me here

This is something time can never take
This is something I can never change

She's between every memory
Delicately, she weaves her story
Deliberately telling me,
"Child, this blanket here, this mug, no they don't say it all
You're seen more than every single picture on the mantle
It's who you are that keeps me living on
Don't fear of losing me when you move on

This is something time can never take
This is something you don't have to change"

Whisper that time can never take you
That time can never take home

Track Name: I Will Never Leave Again
We never know when light falls, when shadows are stollen
By a glow we couldn't have, couldn't have predicted
It was the spilling they call, "weakness"
The giving out of what I kept hidden inside
That I was forced to fear, I hope you see

I was not build like this but I am here
I am here, I am home, I am here
And I will never leave again
