Track Name: Real
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?
Track Name: April
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.
Track Name: Good For Me
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.
Track Name: Vultures
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.
Track Name: Break You
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.
Track Name: Ghost
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.
