Track Name: Years
Years

Hit the floor like a freight train
Through the kitchen like a tidal wave
Your laughter wakes me from my thoughts again
Eyes that sparkle like polished gems
I lose myself when I hold you close

I give my years to watch you grow
I give my years to watch you grow
Though it takes all that I can give, I’ll go for broke
And give my years to watch you grow

Hit my plans like a freight train
Through my thoughts just like an earthquake
I give and give and then you ask again
I’m keeping track just like a business man
I’m losing sight of what I should love

I give my years to watch you grow
I give my years to watch you grow
Though it takes all that I can give, I’ll go for broke
And give my years to watch you grow

The side of love that gives is beautiful
The side that takes can feel like hell
If we only love the love that gives us love
We really only love ourselves.
Track Name: Is It Patience
Is It Patience

It’s a long way up the mountain
And the trees all look the same
In the clouds that cloak the highest peak
The path is hard to ascertain
And the pillars left to mark the way
By those who passed before
Don’t seem to make much sense to me
They take me farther from my goal
And the people that inspire me
Seem to have some idea of where they should be
But I make my way by dimming stars
Is this the wider road, or the straight and narrow?

They say that what you reap is what you sow
Well I’ve been sowing hesitation and double-minded goals
Waiting for the lightning strike
To light my way up the hill and clear the dust from my eyes
I’ve been given opportunity
Am I the foolish young son that has chosen to leave?
Or am I the older one
Jealous that my brother is now coming clean?
But your senses grow dim
When you wait all the time with your fist on your chin
Can you tell me, is it patience?
Or is it sin?

Oh, sometimes when I wait
I will dream of the day
When I tackle your legs
And you give me a name
The tears fall off my face
Like scales from my eyes
I have vision
All the time that I waste
All the bets that I place
Just to leverage a claim
On this world that will fade
Futile cries into space
Let the fiction give way
Help me listen
Help me listen
Track Name: The Catcher
The Catcher

There’s a strength in letting go
That takes more than a casual hope
Commit yourself to the space across the divide
We all take the center stage
In the circus show that we arrange
But You’re the one who’s waiting on the other side.

I close my eyes and I feel the wind
Blow soft against my face and then
With outstretched arms I waiting for your hands
A leaf blown by the autumn breeze
Disconnected from these earthly trees
Carry my on to a new home when I die

There’s an empty hollow ring
To the siren song this harlot sings
Her lullabies can put you fast to sleep
Before you know, you’ll wake to find
That your roots are so deep you cannot fly
To save your life, you’ll have to cut the ties

I close my eyes and I feel the wind
Blow soft against my face and then
With outstretched arms I waiting for your hands
A leaf blown by the autumn breeze
Disconnected from these earthly trees
Carry my on to a new home when I die

Close your eyes and release your grip
Of the trapeze bar you’ve trusted in
Extend your arms and wait for the catcher’s hands.
