Track Name: Inner voice
What makes you think you can
Who made you feel invincible
Can't you just be quiet and small
Safely in the dark

I helped you get this far
Why can't you see it's good enough
Just sit still, don't act so tough
This is who you are

Let me paint a picture
Of the future that you crave

What if you fail?
What if you fall down?
What if you take a chance and everybody laughs
What if it hurts?
What if it falls apart?
What if you try your best and find nobody cares?

I want what's best for you
I'm just protecting your good name
Don't you see, we are the same
This is who we are


Let me paint a picture
Of the future that you crave

What if you fail? (I'll try again)
What if you fall down? (I'll rise up)
What if you take a chance and everybody laughs (I'll trust my heart)
What if it hurts? (I'll overcome)
What if it falls apart? (I'll keep it together)
What if you try your best and find nobody cares? (I'll care for me)
Track Name: Our love is enough
Driving home in a rain storm
Music's loud and the wind strong
And I still got so far to go
Back to where I came from
Can't believe it's been so long
But I'm finally coming home

Leave the past behind me
Praying you will remind me

How our love was enough

Road ahead is empty
Like the void within me
Symbols of a lesson learned
That success is lonely
And the heart is only
Losing life on every turn

I can't wait till you hold me
Like you did when you told me

How our love was enough

There you are in the doorway
Showing me in your own way

How our love is enough
Track Name: Teach me how to love myself
As the dark is creeping in
And the noise of day subsides
All I hear is silence
Giving way to the voice inside
And the script is still unchanged
It's the same old chatter
So I call you once again
You're the voice that matters

Teach me how to love myself
The way you love me

Unlike myself (like no one else)
You believe in me
You see what's good
And what can be
If only I could have your point of view
Oh,the things that I could do

Teach…

Tell me once again
What you see in me
Show me who I am
The man I want to be
Track Name: Last dance
As close we are
I feel the distance
We're oceans apart
Locked in our embrace
As we dance to the last song
Keeping the pace
Your head on my shoulder
Tears on my face

We sway through the motions
As time disappears
And just our emotions
Define what we hear
Though we know it's our last dance
We try to hold on
Make this song last forever
Melt two into one

We surrender our hearts
In a moment so frail
Our farewell in the dark
Onwards we sail
Track Name: Follow your dream
Babe, looking in your eyes
Makes me realize
What you mean to me
And it's plain to see how you
Teach me how to fly
You're the reason why
I got where I am
Girl, you lift me up so high

In your own sweet way
I can hear you say

Follow your dream, and I
I will follow you

Lately I have been
Wandering within
So caught up in myself
I forgot to say that I'm
So impressed by you
I see what you can do
Let me be your wind
I will carry you up high

Anywhere you go
I want you to know
Track Name: Shining light
Quiet down, anxious heart
In time this moment will make sense
And you will understand that
Live is change, constant flow
And we were made to overcome
This will only make you grow

Just be still, worried mind
There is a future you can't see
One day everything will be alright
Once you know
You can be calm and trust yourself
To find a way to make this work

The road ahead seems lost
But if you look inside
You'll find that all along
You've been walking

Step by step, ever on
To a place so beautiful
So warm and peaceful
After all this time
In the dark
You will open up your eyes
And see the shining light you are
Track Name: Unconditional love
To take a walk in your mind
To one day see what goes on
To understand where you're from
That's what I want, love

To take a peek in your heart
To see who's hiding in there
To claim a space for myself,
That's what I want, love

But all I can do
Is dance to the sound of your words
And bask in the warmth of your touch
The truth is revealed in your smile
This is unconditional love

To know the future we'll have
To see us old and in love
To find we made it that far
That's what I want, love

To freeze this moment in time
To hold you for evermore
To love like never before
That's what I want, love

But all I can do
Is dance to the sound of your words
And bask in the warmth of your touch
The truth is revealed in your smile
This is unconditional love
Track Name: I am...
I'm every color of the rainbow
I'm light and darkness all at once
I am strength and I am weakness
I am confidence and doubt
I'm courage and fear
Track Name: Life's about the moment
Do you really wonna know?
My version of the truth?
Will it help you to make sense
Of the storm we made it through?

Can't we let go of the past?
And make the best of now?
Must we replay every scene
To make peace with it somehow?

Like the wind won't tell you where it's going
Won't show you where it's been
Life's about the moment
And what we find within

I'm not trying to deny
There were plenty of mistakes
So we are human after all
And our heart is all it takes

To believe in love again
Embrace the way we feel
We don't know tomorrow
What's here today is rea
