Track Name: Demons
Swift footfalls on the forest floor
A hunter in the bush knocking on your door
Now don’t be afraid, the dark is nothing to hide from

Step into the light (expel your demons)
Run from the night (it’s only holding you back)
Every time you try to escape your demons
It’s always there, laughing out at you

It’s not the end of the line
Even though the hunter is waiting inside
Liberate yourself my son
Now don’t be afraid, the dark is nothing to hide from

Step into the light (expel your demons)
Run from the night (it’s only holding you back)
Every time you try to escape your demons
It’s always there, laughing out at you

Run from the night; it’s only holding you back

Step into the light (expel your demons)
Run from the night (it’s only holding you back)
Every time you try to escape your demons
It’s always there, laughing out at you
Track Name: Coming Summer
Another night passes before your eyes
We try to steal glances while we look at the sky
I can’t pretend not to feel the way I do
I can’t pretend it’s not real; I know you feel it too

Oh, how I miss you dear
Oh, how I miss you here
This coming summer will break these walls
Oh how I miss you dear; I need you here

This freezing snow will cease to fall
And this house will stand under the crushing weight
The fire won’t be the only thing to keep you warm
Right here I’ll be; right next to you

Oh, how I miss you dear
Oh, how I miss you here
This coming summer will break these walls
Oh how I miss you dear; I need you here

I can’t pretend not to feel the way I do
I can’t pretend it’s not real; I know you feel it too
This freezing snow will cease to fall
And this house will stand under the crushing weight

Oh, how I miss you dear
Oh, how I miss you here
This coming summer will break these walls
Oh how I miss you dear; I need you here

Another night passes before your eyes
We try to steal glances while we look at the sky
Track Name: Foreign Shores
If paradise was more than a dream
Would you have the courage to fly away with me?
If paradise was within our reach
Would you have the strength to make it a reality?

Closer to our hands than we ever believed
A paradise just within our reach

Those foreign shores are drawing near
As a hopeful sunrise reveals your tears
We left what we loved behind but we’re creating stories
A time and place for us in history

There’s a strength within your heart
That you have never seen
It’s always there; within you
Just waiting to be seen

Closer to our hand; than we ever believed
A paradise within our reach

Those foreign shores are drawing near
As a hopeful sunrise reveals your tears
We left what we loved behind but we’re creating stories
A time and place for us in history
Track Name: Through The Eyes Of A Giant
Dawn breaks on the window panes of the
Little cabin broken and abandoned in the woods
No one remembers this place; no one cares
It just sits abandoned in the woods alone

Till one day this child came along
Sat on its front porch and sang

Little home in the woods, why have you no company?
You been left here so long like a treasure under the sea
And like a fine wine you grew better with age
Waiting for someone to see your open doors

Now the child plays on the porch every day with the
Girl next door who moved in just yesterday
This girl is so shy; she doesn't know anyone here
So they become the best of friends for life

Till one day her father gets called to war
And she has to move away, but you can still hear her sing

Little home in the woods, why have you no company?
You been left here so long like a treasure under the sea
And like a fine wine you grew better with age
Waiting for someone to see your open doors

So this house sits alone for many years to come
Sitting all alone in the woods with no one
It sits and rots and away with no one to take care
Hoping for someone to see its open doors

Till one day this child came along
Sat on its front porch and sang

Little home in the woods, you shall be my new home
My parents are coming soon to fix you up, brand new
And like a fine wine you have grown better with age
Waiting for someone to see your open doors

And this child never knew his grandfather
He died in a war to save his little girl
Who came back home and married the boy
Who lived next door
Track Name: How To Love
A broken city burns; the smoke trail leads the way
This was once our home but now we have no place
The crops are all destroyed; the land completely ravaged
All hope torn away with the winds of change

How can we stand aside; how can we let this happen?
Let the smoke crawl to the sky
Just watch the world burn

When you’re learning how to love I will make you feel at home
A roof above your head and a bed to rest
When you’re learning how to love I won’t hurt you
I won’t betray you when you’re learning how to love

Walk away, just walk away
Towards the hope of a new day
A daisy field; a flock of jays
The burning sun shines all day

How can we stand aside; how can we let this happen?
Let the smoke crawl to the sky
Just watch the world burn

When you’re learning how to love I will make you feel at home
A roof above your head and a bed to rest
When you’re learning how to love I won’t hurt you
I won’t betray you when you’re learning how to love

When you’re learning how to love I will make you feel at home
A roof above your head and a bed to rest
When you’re learning how to love I won’t hurt you
I won’t betray you when you’re learning how to love
Track Name: Mother
Mother, mother
You’re not just another page in my journal
Mother, mother
You’re not just another page in my life
Mother, mother
You know I’m just trying to get things right
Mother, mother
You’re not just another everyday miracle

And through all the trials off my life
You are always there for me
Through the highs and the lows
You are always there for me

Mother, mother
Look at the big blue sky
Mother, mother
Look at the green of the trees
Mother, mother
You know I hate to see you cry
Mother, mother
I just want to see you smile

And through all the trials off my life
You are always there for me
Through the highs and the lows
You are always there for me

I know I can’t always get things right
But I’ll put in another try
Mother, mother
You know I’m just trying to get things right
Mother, mother
You’re not just another everyday miracle

And through all the trials off my life
You are always there for me
Through the highs and the lows
You are always there for me
Track Name: Legends
My superhero; the saviour in the night
You fight the demons that hide from the light

A legend worthy of song

My superhero; my demon slayer
You’ve protected me from what I could not see

A legend worthy of song
Dragon slayer and navigator of the stars

You have always been there for me
Been my eyes when I could not see
Been my protector
From the monsters beneath my bed

A legend worthy of song
Dragon slayer and navigator of the stars
Superman here, in human form
Dragon slayer and navigator of the stars
Track Name: Thrive
In between the lines we dream; shooting stars and drifting lights
Anything that we can be; it all starts on a Friday night

Our grasping fingers reach to the poetic sound waves
In our trance-like state we forget to break away

All we ever want is to feel alive
All we ever try to need is the rush of the moment

Anything we could be; within our fingers reach
A dream set in motion; late night romance on the beach

Our grasping fingers reach to the poetic sound waves
In our trance-like state we forget to break away

All we ever want is to feel alive
All we ever try to need is the rush of the moment
As it washes by; the moment we feel alive
We finally realize: this is our life

When it comes to a close; when we open our eyes
This symphony of blasé we finally recognize
Back when we started it was easy to pretend
But now that years have passed we realize it must come to an end

All we ever want is to feel alive
All we ever try to need is the rush of the moment
As it washes by; the moment we feel alive
We finally realize: this is our life
We hold on and we let go
We hide our souls from the cold
We don’t want be alive; we just want to thrive

When it comes to a close; when we open our eyes
This symphony of blasé we finally recognize
Back when we started it was easy to pretend
But now that years have passed we realize it must come to an end
