Track Name: You Loved Me
Verse 1
I don't know how I'll sleep tonight
been listening to the rain outside
but I can only hear the silence in me.
And I can hardly see your face
forgotten what it is to place
my faith in something greater.

Bridge
Though you break me
you remake me
Come on take this heart and make it yours.

Chorus
You're everything I'd ever need
You see the raging war in me
You saw it all before I breathed
You loved me
And time will only ever show
there's nothing here that you don't know
You saw it all before I breathed
You Loved me

Verse 2
And I can only go so far
cos everywhere I turn you are
You saw me in the dark and called me lovely
And all the things that bring me down
You pick up and you turn around
and show me all the things you know I could be

Middle 8
Oh I'm hearing you now
as the rains falling down
All of heaven resounds
You Love Me
Every tear that I cried
Gathered now way up high
raining down just to show
You Love Me
Track Name: Saviour
All the lights are out and it's been dark outside for ages.
All the leaves have fallen
and there's silence on these pages.

And I'm searching for a saviour
I'm looking for a way
O Lord won't you send me a Saviour

Sun and moon may rise and fall
while time and space is standing
You may walk across my life
but our world will not be touching

And I'm searching for a saviour
I'm looking for a way
O Lord won't you send me a Saviour

This is what I'm looking for
This is what I need
oh Skin that feels you creeping in
a heart that feels the beat.
This is where the searching ends
and life begins to breath
O Lord won't you send me a Saviour

Call me from the waters edge
and pull me from the mire
Wipe away these spiders webs
and breath again your fire

Cos I'm searching for a saviour
I'm looking for a way
O Lord won't you send me a Saviour

This is what I'm looking for
This is what I need
oh Skin that feels you creeping in
a heart that feels the beat.
This is where the searching ends
and life begins to breath
O Lord won't you send me a Saviour
Track Name: Once in a While
Well I have this feeling within me
Cant hold it or tell you for why
But it starts with the blue of the sky that I knew
That used to hang over me

It spreads like a fire in my conscience
It plays like a vision or dream
And I stand like a child with my heart running wild
And hope is all over me, yes hope is all over me

Just when it seems that life tears at the seams
There’s and window that lets in the sky
Just when I feel that I cant carry on
There’s the light there’s the light

There’s not many things I can tell you
There's too much I have left to learn
But sometimes at night when the sky is alight
This hope in me starts to burn, this hope in me starts to burn.

Just when it seems that I’m losing my dreams
There’s a fire that comes to my soul
Just when my pulse beats a little too slow
There you go, there you go.

Sometimes I get lost on this journey
I’m confused by the world as it stands
But once in a while it’s just like heaven smiles
And I’m in the makers hands, yes I’m in the makers hands
I’m in the makers hands.
Track Name: One in a Million
I'm hanging on by the skin of my teeth
I'm watching you so closely
I'm forgetting to breath.
You whirl in like a small town cyclone
You're leaving me standing with nowhere to go

And you say let's take our time
it's what makes love better like a good case of wine.
And you leave me out on the line
well why waste your own heart if you can waste mine.

I step out like a child on the ice
and it feels kind of dangerous
it feels kind of nice.
Till the cracks start to form at my toes
and everyone sees them
and everyone knows.

And you say babe it's not true
The world needs a maker
the way I need you.
You don't mean what you say
Do you think I don't notice the games that you play?

Well I heard that a fool is a term
for someone who keeps on
and never quite learns.
Well I could run like a fool after you
But something keeps telling me that it just won't do.

Oh you throw me away
You tell me I'm worth the world
But you just won't pay.
Well, Oh baby it's true
I'm One in a Million and I'm not for you
Track Name: Walk with Me
Oh my love come walk with me
I got things you need to see
Oh you've got burdens, I've got time
Won't you place your heart in these hands of mine.

Oh Love, walk with me
Be my heart, set my soul running free
Oh love lead me now.
And the cares of this life they don't matter somehow.

Oh my Love come walk with me
Be the way you want to be.
Of you've got questions
I've got rhymes
Won't you place your heart in these hands of mine

Cos you're all that my heart ever asked for.
You're more that my soul ever needs.
You're more than enough,
Oh you're more than enough,
You're more than enough for me.
Track Name: 29 Years
Well I didn't sit here for 29years
Just to see you walk away walk away
I didn't hold on because waiting was fun
It took all if my strength to not turn and run.
And I didn't be good just cos you said I should
It took all of my might
And I did it cos you were worth fighting for
And I'd fight 29 more

Bridge
So let it all go.
Let it all fall to pieces

Chorus
And I'll be right here so don't you fear
I'll still be waiting for you.
Love bleed me dry
You'll still be mine
And I'll still want you

Verse 2
Well 29 years and all these ideas
You were more than I dreamed
You're worth all my tears.
And you never demanded
You kept taking chances
You said let me be cos I'm best when I'm free.

So let love return to the heart that deserves
If you never let go then you'll never know
You were worth fighting for
And I'd fight 29 more

Middle 8
So let me Love you.
Sometimes Angels fall.
Track Name: Sleeping Giant
You've been sitting on my shoulder for a while
You've been telling me lies.
Oh and you, you've been talking
and I never liked you tone
Oh and I've been swallowing your lines.
You've been running out of time

There's a hurricane within me
There's a force you can't define
And I challenge you come get me

Sleeping Giant I'm a force you shouldn't wake
and you've been stealing treasure that you really
shouldn't take.
No I never want to go back there
Cos I'm a sleeping giant and I've come alive again.

No one even noticed I'd been standing all this time.
Staring out the window at a world that should be mine
Oh you tricked me into thinking
That my time had been and gone
Well I'm standing here to tell you now
My friend you have been wrong

There's a hurricane within me
There's a force you can't define
And I challenge you come get me

Sleeping Giant I'm a force you shouldn't wake
and you've been stealing treasure that you really
shouldn't take.
No I never want to go back there
Cos I'm a sleeping giant and I've come alive again.
Track Name: I See You
I got my life you got yours
I got freedom, you've got wars
Justice fights a cruel cause
And I got my life, you got yours

You got your life I got mine
Silence is a cowards crime
I got years, you're out of time
You got your life I got mine

But through this great divide
Your eyes have met with mine
And I know

That as I see you
The world has turned forever
And I'm left holding onto you
As light shines through
the heart of my dialema
is forever, I'll see you.

I got my life, you got yours
One to cross the others shores
Left to live with truth enforced
That youre in my life and I'm in yours

I'm left holding onto you
when light will fade and dark ensues
I'm left holding onto you
when passion leaves and I must choose
I'm left holding onto you
when others win and you must lose
I'm left holding onto you
Track Name: I will not let go
If you want to whisper
then I'm ready to hear
If you say, I will trust and obey
If you must delay then I'll hang on today.

And if you want to shout Lord
So I hear your voice
If you want to shake
me to the core then I'll say
I'd rather be shaken than stand in your way
So here's what I pray

I won't harden my heart

Bring me down to my knees
Not my will but yours please
Take this crown from my head
into your hands instead
Take this rock from my chest
I need heart made of flesh
Let me hear you this day
Bend my ear look my way
If you whisper in breezes
or cry from the hills
I will wait if it pleases, I'll listen until
You have gained my attention
and until I know, I have heard from my maker
Heard His voice, I will not let go

And if you want to lead me
Where I fear to tread, if you go
Lord you know that I'll go
If that's what you say
There ain't no other way
so here's what I pray

I won't harden my heart
Track Name: There is a Light
There is a Light I carry inside just for you my Love
For one who has held my heart together so long.
I will not let this new come to take all my love for you
I will not lose this passion I carry for you.

I will remember the years that you held me
I will not turn from my true lovers gaze
Though in this world I may find such distraction
I will not turn away

There is a place that never can be for another Love
There is a light I carry inside for you.

I will remember the years that you held me
I will not turn from my true lovers gaze
Though in this world I may find such distraction
I will not turn away
For it is you who has been my protector
i know it's you who has watched over my life

There is a place I never will give
There's a space where only you'll live
There is a Light I carry inside for you.
