Real 03:14
You tell me find your rhythm That's all you gotta do But maybe I can't find that rhythm Till I'm standing next to you. It's an easy rhythm That's what they all say But when you've never had that rhythm It seems a world away. 'Cause what if all this time I've been playing the wrong part? What if the melody was wrong from the start? What if I never felt what I was meant to feel? What if the beating of this heart is not real? Everyone knows the rhythm It's in your DNA But maybe I can't hear that rhythm 'Til it's hits me in the face. 'Cause what if all this time I've been playing the wrong part? What if the melody was wrong from the start? What if I never felt what I was meant to feel? What if the beating of this heart is not real?

April 03:27
There's nothing special about this day in April It only draws another line in the sand. Nostalgia creeps in and I try to breathe again. This hourglass is running out of time. Where did all the days go? Where are all the years? It's like chasing down the changing of the winds. We're living for tomorrow, but tomorrow never comes It's always another day away. Tell me that the past will never be forgotten And these moments will never die. Tell me the contents of my failing mind are alive. Take my sprit and take my soul- They're not complete without it all. This April they'll come alive, This April when I reach the skies. Since when did I abandon the passing of the years? It's like pinning down the changing ocean tides. Now I'm living for this April, give me one more chance This time I won't let it fall away. Tell me that the past will never be forgotten And these moments will never die. Tell me the contents of my failing mind are alive. Take my spirit and take my soul- They're not complete without it all. This April they'll come alive, This April when I reach the skies. Why is it such a surprise that the only factor here is time? The way into heaven isn't wide but its a pathway you need to find. Don't let the memories leave you behind. Tell me that the past will never be forgotten And these moments will never die. Tell me the contents of my failing mind are alive. Take my sprit and take my soul- They're not complete without it all. This April they'll come alive, This April when I reach the skies. This April I'll come alive.

Good For Me 03:51
He was only good for me. The man who held my dreams. But someone had it in for me 'Cause heartache held me close. But now something has changed This girl is not the same. She wised up, shook the lies up And put the devil to rest. He's been pulling on her heartstrings Feeding her lies all this time. One strike to the enemy But she has a weapon with which he can't compete. She has a God he can't defeat. He was just so perfect. The one who could be mine. But someone had it in for me 'Cause heartache held me tight. But now something has changed This girl is not the same. She wised up, shook the lies up And put the devil to rest. He's been pulling on her heartstrings Feeding her lies all this time. One strike to the enemy But she has a weapon with which he can't compete. She has a God he can't defeat.

Vultures 04:39
Retracing steps through these silent halls. The distant recesses of this maze. How does anyone learn to see through this haze? The vultures are always circling overhead. When life showers you in blessings but all you can do is hide. From the gifts you don't deserve and all the hurt you don't want to find. The pain that lingers at the end of this road, if we quit now we'll never know. But that's a whole world gone, a lifetime gone unexplored. Questioning all there is, questioning who I am. Maybe this skin hides a beast. Am I this evil inside? A shelter for a monster? What other explanation is there for this? When life showers you in blessings but all you can do is hide. From the gifts you don't deserve and all the hurt you don't want to find. The pain that lingers at the end of this road, if we quit now we'll never know. But that's a whole world gone, a lifetime gone unexplored. I don't want to miss out on perfection But my body's just such a mess of confusion Funny how these new things come And upset the balance so easily... When life showers you in blessings but all you can do is hide. From the gifts you don't deserve and all the hurt you don't want to find. The pain that lingers at the end of this road, if we quit now we'll never know. But that's a whole world gone, a lifetime gone unexplored.

Break You 02:45
This gem I'm holding in my hands This jewel within my grasp. It always seemed so out of reach But here we are, at last. But I'm scared I'll scratch this surface Worried I'll destroy the shape... So fearful of breaking this diamond in two Damaging something so precious and new Of leaving marks where care was due. But, oh God, you know I'm thankful for you. And God, oh no, I don't want to break you. This rock I cradle gently Is shining in the light. Its edges mark the finishing line In a long and endless fight. But I'm scared I'll scratch this surface Worried I'll destroy the shape... So fearful of breaking this diamond in two Damaging something so precious and new Of leaving marks where care was due. But, oh God, you know I'm thankful for you. And God, oh no, I don't want to break you. The more I learn, the more I feel. The more I feel, the more I fear. These pieces of me start to tear To fall apart as they learn to care. Logic fails, as logic does I feel we never learn to love Sometimes I think you're worth so much That I could never measure up. But I'm scared I'll scratch this surface Worried I'll destroy the shape... So fearful of breaking this diamond in two Damaging what's so precious and new Of leaving marks where care was due. But, oh God, you know I'm thankful for you. And God, oh no, I don't want to break you.

Ghost 03:36
These feet weren't made for flying They just do their best. To carry through the cold air This body they have left. I never meant to leave you. I could never try. But these hands were built for breaking And living out a lie. And I feel so alive I never tried To let it go, to leave this ghost behind. These feet were made for stumbling Tripping day and night. And this heart was made for falling Perhaps some day it might. And I feel so alive I never tried To let it go, to leave this ghost behind. But now I feel I'm stuck here Stranded out at sea Perhaps some day I'll find you You're coming back to me. And I feel so alive I never tried To let it go, to leave this ghost behind.
