Track Name: The Horse Latitudes
I lie here on the deck
in the glaring sun
all ready
I threw my horses overboard
I'm light and all ready
all is quiet and is still
but my sails
are all ready

so I pray send me the wind
back to me
back to me
and i pray that you send him
back to me
back to me

when your green eyes looked at me
it's like my home under my feet
you carry me to my dreams
and all my love so sweet
and I would run mad now
if it weren't for the dream
that said you are my love
and you're coming back to me

and I pray that you send him
back to me
back to me
and I pray that you send wind
back to me
back to me
and I pray that you send him
back to me
back to me
and I pray that you send wind
back to me
back to me

horses run through my dreams
they carry you back to me
I feel your fingers through my hair
I feel your love when you're not here
I'll trust and wait til the wind comes through
my heart will wait to marry you
horses run through my dreams
they carry you back to me
Track Name: Meant to Be
sometimes everything falls apart for the right to fall together again and again
I must surrender and trust what I can't see or understand or stand

you taught me how our dreams never give up
you taught me how I was always meant to be loved

it seems like a mountain I'm forced to climb
for him to hold me and come back to me
though love is fragile it's what we must fight for
for him to hold me send him back to me

you taught me how our dreams never give up
you taught me how I was always meant to be loved
I'll teach you how our dreams they never give up
I'll teach you how you were always meant to be loved
Track Name: As You Are
I don't know if it makes a difference
I don't know if it changes anything
but i love you
oh i love you
as you are

I felt you coming down the hall coming down the hall to my heart
I knew who you were i knew how you felt from the start
still my heart it aches to see yours as it breaks does it help
that I love you
oh I love you
as you are

so to quote you
may love walk with you
hand in hand
when look up to the stars
may you feel love
even if you don't understand
where it's comes from
may love save you from within or without
you are loved so
a billion times more than your one thousand doubts

I don't know it is makes a difference
but how I hope it changes everything
Track Name: A Calm Day
you like the sun
went down on me
you like moon
pulled the sea away from me
you like the wind
blew my shade trees down
you like the breeze
spread your seeds around

when all I want
is a calm clear day
with all my love
clear the clouds away
and from his arms
I'll see the starlight
no more tears
haunting all my nights

you like an oak
will stand by me
you like a hope
will set me free

starlight in my eyes
I saw you wear a disguise
starlight in my eyes
I heard you tell me lies

when all I want is a calm clear day
no more storms wash my hopes away
all the clouds parted with your arms
so I could finally see the stars
when all I want is a calm clear day
and no more storms to wash my hopes away
Track Name: Worth Fighting For
I fought my my out
of the house of mirrors
cause I know in my soul
this worlds not all pain and fears
there are things that are sacred
we must fight to preserve
the worst enemy is doubt
that can buys the lies as the word

you know death
death doesn't scare me
cause I've been there before
so I'll fight with all of my bravery
for all the things worth fighting for
that I survived for

cause the only hell there is
is forgetting our souls
cause when we harden our hearts
everywhere's a war zone
out of all you left of me
out of the shrapnel from your war
I will rise with my heart in tact
your hate didn't reach my soul

you know death
death doesn't scare me
cause I've been there before
so I'll fight with all of my bravery
for all the things worth fighting for
that I survived for

it is love I'll face my worst fears for
it's for love I've died and come back for
it's for love I'd light myself on fire and become a phoenix for
it's for love I'd endure a 1000 rapes more
it's for love I'll stare down the barrel of my fears for
it's for love I've yanked my heart out and put it back for
it's for love it love I'd do anything for
all to hear your knock your knock at my door
Track Name: Always a Burning Fire
In the wake of my human weaknesses
I can falter, fall back on false kisses
and live the very names I ran so far from
at the very foot of love's kingdom
I want to touch real flames
I want to feel loved
so a burning fire will consume me all
and that this burning fire will make me be my all
and never let me fall
though it's so hard to find
it's been here for all time
always

so I have seen it
I've heard the stories
I have almost felt it in my dreams
but nothing will compare when I find it on my own
when I finally find a heart to call my home
so a burning fire will consume me all
and that this burning fire will make me be my all
and never let me fall
though it's so hard to find
it's been here for all time
always

I want to find this love that's so hard to find
I want to see god from the height that's hard to climb
I want to find the song of all that is peace
I want to find myself
I want to find release.
so a burning fire will consume me all
and that this burning fire will make me be my all
and never let me fall
though it's so hard to find
it's been here for all time
always
Track Name: Love Like a Wave
as a child I drew pictures of women staring out at sea
waiting and waiting for love to come back to me
and I heard a thousand lies
from the love starved and the blind
so I closed my eyes
but you were still there in my mind

so like a wave I knew you'd reach my shore
so i would brave all the hopelessness I must ignore

if I'd learned anything it's that one day can change everything
and from nothing but a dream we can create a beautiful thing
it feels like I closed my eyes
and I dreamed you up in my mind
and you walked in my life
like you had been there all the time

so like a wave you reached my shore
and when I had to be brave I know now what it was for
for you like a wave to reach my shore
and all I had to brave I don't have to anymore
love like a wave washed on my shore
and I know I am brave and deserve all the love in store
