Track Name: The Only Thing Between Us
Lyrics:

THE ONLY THING BETWEEN US

Don’t want shame, don’t want neglect
Don’t want blame, let’s reconnect
The only thing I want between us, is love and happiness
Don’t want pain, don’t want depressed
Don’t want mistrust, don’t want stress
The only thing I want between us, is love and happiness

A little love and happiness is what we need, in these dark days
A little love and happiness to set us free, from binding chains
A little love and happiness will plant the seeds, and guide our ways

I’ve seen love fall, I’ve seen success
I’ve dropped the ball, I must confess
The only thing I want between us, is love and happiness
Don’t need more, won’t take less
I need to know, don’t want to guess
The only thing I want between us, is love and happiness

A little love and happiness is what we need, in these dark days
A little love and happiness to set us free, from binding chains
A little love and happiness will plant the seeds, and guide our ways
Track Name: Make A Big Noise
Lyrics:

MAKE A BIG NOISE

Some people talking all the time about things they don’t understand
They try to change my mind, always pushing their demands
Why don’t you just get lost, and leave my family alone
We won’t be in your way, we don’t need a chaperone

I don’t make a big noise, I don’t take a lot of space
I’m OK where I live, I don’t need another place
Don’t try to change my car, I’m OK with my toys
I got just what I need, don’t need to make a lot a noise

Put down your megaphones, don’t want to read your signs
You want to riot in the street, till everything is redefined
Well you can have your way, but stay away from my boys
You might run into my gun, and that’ll make a big noise
Track Name: Mad Routine
Lyrics:

MAD ROUTINE

Stepped off of the plane
Ready to start over
It’s been a year of thinking through
Everything I own thrown cross my shoulder
It doesn’t matter how, doesn’t matter when
It all went down
Now I’m placing all my hope, and all my money
In this shiny brand new town

Try my faith, it’s been abused
Take my joy, it’s barely used
I’d give anything
To break out of this mad routine
And if my hands were clean

Guess it’s been a while
I wondered if I’d see you
Again with your smile
Like eternity, frozen in the rearview
I’ve been running down a dream, that seems to disappear
When I climb that hill
Like a faded memory, I’m left to question
Was it ever even real

Try my faith, it’s been abused
Take my joy, it’s barely used
I’d give anything
To break out of this mad routine
And if my hands were clean
Yea I’d give anything
To break out of this mad routine
And if my hands were clean

Stepped off of the plane
Ready to start over
Track Name: Rebuild Love With Trust
Lyrics:

REBUILD LOVE WITH TRUST

In our quite place we comfort each other
We share a love no one else understands
Together we have been each other’s heartbeat
Together we have been each other’s hands

I know I’m missing you

So let’s do something about it
Stop running around and make some time for us
Sometimes I wonder how we got so far from where we started
So let’s tear down walls and rebuild love with trust

Cause I know I’m missing you

So let’s do something about it
Let’s tear down walls and rebuild love with trust
Yea you and me, we can do something about it
We can tear down walls and rebuild love with trust
God help us tear down walls and rebuild love with trust
Yea tear down walls and rebuild love with trust
Track Name: Long Ride
Lyrics:

LONG RIDE

It’s gonna be a wet day
The clouds have pushed the sun away
And I don’t wanna go outside
But I’m out in it anyway

And it’s gonna be a long ride, and a long long way
It's gonna be a long ride, on a sunless day

Every time I get the chance
Across from you I steal a glance
To see a pattern in your eyes
To catch a sparkle of romance

But it’s gonna be a long ride, and a long long way
It’s gonna be a long ride, on a sunless day
And it’s gonna be a long long

Wake up early and watch TV
Try to see what the weather will be
Forecast said it would be dry
That weather man must be high

And it’s gonna be a long ride and a long long way
It’s gonna be a long ride, on a sunless day
It’s gonna be a long ride, but I’m on my way
It’s gonna be a long ride
It’s gonna be a long ride
It’s gonna be a long long
