I couldn’t sort it out I couldn’t find the Way I couldn’t take my heart to the limit Oh, I was too cynical, frayed No one knows for sure But no one’s ever wrong You’ll only dance when you hear a kick drum Love, it doesn’t come from a song So I just say it don’t matter Say it don’t matter at all Feeling closer now Feeling high above I think it’s ‘cause I’m not in the middle Of all the things that belittle Love They all want to stay Never wanting more If this is all I got, I’m not waitin’ We’re all here to ask and explore So I just say it don’t matter Say it don’t matter at all Every night I’m waiting for you now And your heart’s breaking over how I can’t fake it to be found Can’t you see I ain’t coming back down Feeling closer now Feeling high above All I know is- Love you can’t just take it No, you gotta make it and trust The rest I just say it don’t matter Say it don’t matter at all

Work 03:29
I think that I just found the truth Live in Light and see outside of you Even though we’re just passing through A man still has his work to do This’ll all just come back ‘round again But for me this will be the end Doesn’t mean I’ll give into the blues ‘Cause a man still has his work to do Shine on all the dimmest views Light up all the darkest rooms Sing out all the sweetest tunes ‘Cause a man still has his work to do I don’t have to wait until I go To find peace in this world, I know And even if I got nothing to lose A man still has his work to do Shine on all the dimmest views Light up all the darkest rooms Sing out all the sweetest tunes ‘Cause a man still has his work to do
3.
I’ll bring you home and let you in There was a time I knew how this would end You’re feelin’ down, man I’ve been low There were days I couldn’t help but show If this is hell, if this is heaven There’s still gotta be a start Where you let me love you The only way into your heart Only way into your heart I hold you close, don’t back away I can see it all over your face You’re runnin’ scared, you’re runnin’ blind Don’t let the Fear come take over your mind Just let it go and take it easy I’m here waitin’ for the start Where you let me love you The only way into your heart Only way into your heart My love is stronger than you think Ain’t no need to doubt
4.
When I call you in the morning And I say I’m such a waste All I know is when I’m tumblin’ down It’s you I’m asking to stay You sacrifice so that I can Sing songs far away You never seem to mind somehow And it’s you I’m asking to stay All the time that passed me by All the years that left me all alone I know now you’ve come and night has gone Didn’t have a lot to offer Grown in Mississippi clay But you taught me to love and now It’s you I’m asking to stay Never said that it was perfect Working at it day by day But I love you and your Midwest sounds Yeah it’s you I’m asking to stay All the time that passed me by All the years that left me all alone I know now you’ve come and night has gone We may never climb out of here May not find a better way But if all we walk is faltering ground It’s still you I’m asking to stay All the time that passed me by All the years that left me all alone I know now you’ve come and night has gone

Come Higher 04:33
Couldn’t take it anymore I’m easy to tire Said I’d quit but I never did Guess I’m a liar Work all day to play all night Singin’ “Bird on the Wire” Making money to make the Man I think something misfired But you, you settled for the world You settled down to find out what it means And I can tell you what I’ve found Going town to town it’s all been seen The only road I’ve found I paved for me Carving out my given name And set it on fire Like a match struck, turned to flame I’m flickering skyward But you, you settled for the world You settled down to find out what it means And I can tell you what I’ve found Going town to town it’s all been seen The only road I’ve found I paved for me Letting go of all the shame Start to feel lighter Through the ash see what remains When I come higher
6.
Love is All 03:28
Time and time again I start to wonder How it is I ever made it out When all of this is Conquer, Take, and Plunder Then again I’ve always had my doubts Crawlin’ back and fleeing from the thunder I was just a vision of myself Saw the cracks that started showing under Didn’t tell so no one knew to help Oh it took some time to finally be In a place I know I’ll never leave And after wrestling my mind free I’m in love and Love is all in me I went to the place where you did fade out You would never say my name no more Then I left to chase dreams and sing about Where I saw your ghost upon the floor Oh it took some time to finally be In a place I know I’ll never leave And after wrestling my mind free I’m in love and Love is all in me
7.
Silence 03:38
Winds have come, seasons changed I’ve been gone four weeks The house is different, you’ve rearranged You even got new sheets It might take some time To get it back the way it’s been I just need to find a way to live again It takes a little silence I went on out to the edge I couldn’t find no shade Never thought there was the choice To crawl on back or stay Tried to build a wall For the world to crash against I still need to find a way to just exist It takes a little silence I ain’t afraid of the pain I’m not covering up Please don’t take away What it’s teaching us Feeling loss, feel it all My mind is running thin My heart it breaks, I ruminate The sky is darkening Used to wish I knew Exactly what to say There are no words that can make it all okay It takes a little silence
8.
Staring at the ceiling Letting my breath slow I’m a timebomb and I’m feeling Like I’m about to blow Carrying the baggage Of my God-given name I keep adding to the traffic That just congests my brain Honey it’s hard to know Where your heart goes Gotta just find a hold And let the mystery go Put all my faith in living Life with endless days And that let me fall for magic I didn’t need the pay I am still in love, yes And that will never change But I need to give someone else The chance to make the rain Honey it’s hard to know Where your heart goes Gotta just find a hold And let the mystery go Maybe it’s a new start You know it’s not the end But I’m worried, and I don’t know if I can find myself again Honey it’s hard to know Where your heart goes Gotta just find a hold And let the mystery go
9.
Help Me Out 03:01
Like this autumn phase Warmer days are gone You’re an empty page No one’s written on Wind comes, is it change? Can I feel it blow Outside of your place Rapping the windows Can you help me out Late nights at the bar Waiting to go on Wish I could just stop But no one’s going home Can you help me out Am I that surprised Nothing’s gonna change But you looked awful nice On your wedding day
10.
Rivers follow me all the way home How could I be wrong She slept at night beside her phone How could I be wrong The weight and the worry can be so strong How could I be wrong But I can’t give back what I don’t own How could I be wrong When there’s nothing in the world for us Our two hearts will break away for love Someday I’ll find myself again How could I be wrong But I’ll regret where it is I’ve been How could I be wrong How could I be wrong Nothing shaped me all along Like falling down to see Where I am and where I will be So another night, another song How could I be wrong I may be away, but I’m never gone How could I be wrong When there’s nothing in the world for us Our two hearts will break away for love
