Track Name: For The Trees
I always try and do the right thing by you
Searching far and wide for any sign of pain
Countless memories to remind you
Why we even play this game
Then two days pass (two days pass)
We’ll make it last (we’ll make it last)

I can’t see the forest for the trees
Obvious why you’ll never feel at ease
Masquerading around with my stolen crown
I guess sometimes one’s a crowd
I can’t see the forest for the trees
Obvious why you’ll never feel at ease
Masquerading around with my stolen crown
With my stolen crown

I never try and do the right thing by you
Searching far and wide for things to justify
I need reminders as to why I need you
How I forget you died
Then two days pass (I’ll find you sitting in the corner)
I am the outcast (I am the outcast)
I walk the wide and easy path despite you
‘Cause I can’t see the end

I can’t see the forest for the trees
Obvious why you’ll never feel at ease
Masquerading around with my stolen crown
I guess sometimes one’s a crowd
I can’t see the forest for the trees
Obvious why you’ll never feel at ease
Masquerading around with my stolen crown
With my stolen crown

And it’s falling apart and it’s like nothing I know
Nothing I know
Track Name: Eighty Eight
Piano screams, the singers hiss
From push to shove and shove to this
It’s hard to stand and sing along
To empty words of an empty song
I met a man on Woodburn Street
Who said I’d never have to eat
Just listen close and listen well
Stand by me and we’ll conquer hell

Time goes by so slowly

Where did the man go with the feast
I’m walking west and he’s going east
And I don’t know which way to go
But like the snow I’m falling
I ran barefoot down Woodburn Street
And through the trees I saw a heap
Of lives and lovers
And all the others who’d embraced defeat

Time goes by so slowly
When you’re waiting for a single word
Love unspoken well it goes unheard
Time goes by so slowly
When you’re waiting for a single word
Love unspoken well it goes unheard

Play it Sam, just a little while
Play it like it’s going out of style
They said my prayers won’t go unheard
Now I’m lost for words (I’m lost for words)
I’m lost for words (I’m lost for words)
Time goes by so slowly

Call on your captain and fall on your sword
‘Cause safety in numbers means nothing at all
Call on your captain and fall on your sword
‘Cause safety in numbers means nothing at all
Time goes by
Time goes by
Time goes by so slowly
Track Name: The Call
I’ve always doubted who I am
Is my existence even important in the end
I’m always open to possibilities
Something to prove that my life still has meaning

Hear the call, don’t settle down
Do decent work for the perfect crown
Pick up your cross, lay down your pride
Follow he who has given life
For you

Is there something that I’m missing
Something from the very beginning that I don’t see
I still have hope and I won’t stop searching for you
For you

Hear the call, don’t settle down
Do decent work for the perfect crown
Pick up your cross, lay down your pride
Follow he who has given life

Well I’ve been watching you dance around me
And never notice how
Like serendipity, it’s coming in faster
Just like a disaster that never made a sound

Have I completely lost my mind
Or is it a sign that I’m about to find what I am looking for
I’ve been searching empty doors
Maybe it’s not out there to find
Looking everywhere but inside
Has it always been with me
All this time that I’ve wasted is that now what I’m faced with
My heart’s been encased for so long
It’s time to sing a new song
Break free
So I will sing a new song
One of hope, joy and love for all to sing along
I have found my place up above
So I’ll love

Hear the call, don’t settle down
Do decent work for the perfect crown
Pick up your cross, lay down your pride
Follow he who has given life
Track Name: Repair
The feeling is there but the person is not
Left this world long ago but you haven’t forgot
In your heart there is grief, the suffering and pain
That you hide from the world, that you stored far away
So you blame and you blame but the feeling remains
The hole deep inside, the one that won’t go away
Loneliness an ever-present feeling
Isolation from the world while you search for healing

Take my hand you’ll see you don’t have to fear anymore
I will be your compass through the storm
Stand before the throne you don’t have to be alone
I will walk beside you, carry you home

What gives you the right to take another’s life
A daughter fatherless over a pointless fight
A grief-stricken mother left with a child
She can’t cope and takes her own life
A shooting on the news, a killer on the loose
A generation of sex, drugs and alcohol abuse
What to do, she won’t sleep in the same bed
How can you forgive me for what goes on in my head
Forgive me
Forgive me

The gunshots started to fly
Blurred vision, ringing ears and the battle cries
Fleeing for cover, something to hide under
Wondering if I’ll make it through the night

Take my hand you’ll see you don’t have to fear anymore
I will be your compass through the storm
Stand before the throne you don’t have to be alone
I will walk beside you, carry you home

For I so loved the world
That I gave my only son
He was nailed upon that cross
For the sins of everyone
So don’t say I wasn’t there
And don’t you say I didn’t care
For the man who believes
And the man who can see
These hands will always repair

Take my hand you’ll see you don’t have to fear anymore
I will be your compass through the storm
Stand before the throne you don’t have to be alone
I will walk beside you, carry you home
