On The Line 04:09
On The Line Its taken long to get up here Its something I confess They said I wouldn’t hold on for so long The lights go on I feel undressed I’ve got something to say Can I just for once get things straight My father never saw me here And now it’s more than late Maybe I’m the one played safe Dreaming has left me This one simple thing And now it’s right here in my face It’s my time to sing A freedom that comforts me Where I want to be as I sit here and write where my hearts gone Where it all went wrong Where I’ll thank for staying to listen to just one more song Inspired by the multitude of people who’ve been used There’s never any reason to break things For those of you who stood by me We live and work each day Holding on for life and sweet dreams I know you’re worth the time of spent Forever, now, and then Maybe I’m the one who played safe Dreaming has left me This one simple thing And now it’s right here in my face Its my time to sing A freedom that comforts me Where I want to be And I sit here and write where my hearts gone Where it all went wrong Where I’ll thank for staying to listen to just one more song Every single time your faith in me was on the line Broke down on my knees as I sayin’ help me please Your kiss, your lips, its this that keeps me on my feet for you

Song for the Broken Like in every note that I ever wrote, I use your sweet warm smile for every challenge while inside your hold you never cried without a reason speakin' to your soul, singin to your song of love And like this melody  You’re a part of me, and I climb to find the summit of your embrace and though it may get cold I'll find you shelter in a message speakin' to your soul, singin to your song of love I'll take you home wrap you in song that will help you heal from the pain your just to strong, but let me lead just today our love has spoken, a song for the broken will heal us today like an anecdote our story may be told but they'll change the names and we'll listen from a distance and those nostalgic songs they'll remind us of the lessons speakin' to your soul, singin' to your song of love I'll take you home wrap you in song that will help you heal from the pain your just to strong, but let me lead just today our love has spoken, a song for the broken will heal us today

One More Take This thing I got is a calling of sorts so be careful how you approach it Its not like high school when we would get drunk while mom and dad didn’t notice Its more like when things were easy and there wasn’t nothin’ in the way of our intentions Just follow me there’ll be somethin’ for us So its when and were that’s the question We traveled far to get closer to home In all honesty I never mentioned There was a time when I couldn’t get it done But I never ran from second handed chances I feel like I’m in a movie and someone just told me the camera is on Give me just one more take and I swear it’s the last time I’ll get it wrong Cause on take two I was holdin’ my breath and I couldn’t show you my passion They say the third times a charm so good luck , cause I’m comin’ home and this time will be different

Baby Has 04:57
Baby Has It's right there in front of me How can I choose? If you could imagine Being Stuck in my shoes Here in this madness We never see the ending When did I promise To pay all my dues? In the ending, it always comes back strong Refrão: We were on a roll here baby Falling back into love,  We’ll take it in stride, just take your time Baby has, baby has somthin’ I got to believe it, Baby has it all   Its not time for little things There's no time to loose If we’re moving on from here Its high time I choose We’ll stay and live happily Just stay in bed ‘till morning Or history repeats itself Just not here with you But I want my blues, and you are my muse Refrão: So we’re on a roll here baby Falling back into love,  we’ll take it in stride, just take your time Baby has, baby has somthin’ I got to believe it, Baby has it all Bridge: All this talking makes big 'ol mess But after talkin’ lies, livin’ this thing right,  all we have to do is love

Alone feat. Joo Kraus (free) 03:41
Alone something happens to the soles of my feet never knew that i could fall for the beat  of love you are the one every now and then i listen to the amazing symphony that bends to the calling of my special love dancings not enough if we can care there's nothing that will carry me to paradise  like my enchanted life raise a glass and toast to something dont try to make it all alone raise a glass and toast to something dont try to make it all alone never had to prove that I could believe its impossible to leave something that my love, wont pick right up move you body to the rythmn so we wont feel sorry that we came far to loosen up i've had enough dancings not enough if we can care there's nothing that will carry me to paradise  like my enchanted life raise a glass and toast to something dont try to make it all alone raise a glass and toast to something dont try to make it all alone

Promise tried to call you yesterday thought it was the time we planned another hour passed and I was hoping you’d have called at home and I knew kept on trying, but I cant get through seems as though your coming back the smell of you it holds me in from letting life dilute the very essence  of our normal life  and I knew I only tuned the frequency to you and faith brings the patience of our promise here and I pray that sanity is not a virtue,  I really never meant to hurt you slowly now it comes to me we were always meant to be confessions alway hurt but now I  want to grow and all I need  is you I see our childrens eyes in all you do and faith brings the patience of our promise here and I pray that sanity is not a virtue,  I really never meant to hurt you

I'll Hold You I look back at children playin and I can see the light Its not that I didnt want that life I went for the loneliness in the stake that you’d be mine but I cant blame you, cause this was my own lie Get back to steppin’ over people Livin’ in the street Its not that I know the life they lead they've got that loneliness with your eyes its hard to meet but I cant blame them, for something I disguise you wrote me through you wrote my tune in these walkin shoes I need to know my friend how long, how wrong, how I'll hold you The other day I needed somethin but I didn't understand why I even make my own demands cause I see this neediness as an ordinary thing but I cant blame you, for my oblivion you wrote me through you wrote my tune in these walkin shoes I need to know my friend how long, how wrong, how I'll hold you

Loving Sounds walkin down this road has helped me be alone I've dreamed enough to know that hope, it cant be still I turned the corner of a childhood memory that's here inside of me I’d thrown away the key waking up to the loving sounds is all I have to hear growing up in this run down town is good enough for me Oh how could I be who I am? It’s been a windin road to find my way back home there're things out there I learned I never had to know but now when I came back you had a piece of me the search it never stopped for my identity waking up to the loving sounds is all I have to hear growing up in this run down town is good enough for me just how could I stay far from here ? and you'll be gone on Sunday mornin’ and leave this town right at your feet and on your own you think your losing waking up to the loving sounds is all I have to hear growing up in this run down town is good enough for me how could my love get you down?

New Moon when your at home sleeping and warm trying to live your dreams I sneek a peek now I feel weak someone transformed my soul It's a new moon now and I sleep by your craddle rockin' this song for your peace  When I know your long gone within those sleepin' stables Cant help but thank god you were born soft to the touch I know its not much to whisper into your ear I'll always be near theres nothing to fear we'll be here by you side It's a new moon now and I sleep by your craddle rockin' this song for your peace  When I know your long gone within those sleepin' stables Cant help but thank god you were born whenever life throws something by your way hope I can get you through And the castles that you make I will be there watchin’ you, someone to cheer in the stands It's a new moon now and I sleep by your craddle rockin' this song for your peace  When I know your long gone within those sleepin' stables Cant help but thank god you were born I'm a new mom now and I sleep by your craddle rockin' this song for your peace  When I know your long gone within those sleepin' stables Cant help but thank god you were born

Just Say My Name (free) 03:45
Just Say My Name What Ive done is waited way to long to say it what i havent done is lied what i´ve done is asked for you give me just a small exception What i havent done is wasted all the closeness waking beside your blue eyes What ive done is stood beside your every breath, your indecision I never know what side your on its not so black and white. so black and white I´m not denying that your right its just I need some more time, to figure out if i can really stay  just say my name just say my name there's nothing left to prove, just say my name What we done is opened every old contention What we haven´t done is cried What we've done is mixed it up and now we've blinded every question What we've done is found that love is overrated nothing thats past can survive What we haven't done is shared the hopes for now, and in the future I never know what side your on its not so black and white. so black and white I´m not denying that your right its just I need some more time, to figure out if i can really stay  just say my name just say my name there's nothing left to prove, just say my name I never know what side your on its not so black and white. so black and white I´m not denying that your right its just I need some more time, to figure out if I can really stay  just say my name just say my name there's nothing left to prove,  just say my name

The Story 03:37
The Story with this little piece of dream I'm overflowing with the endless possibilities I'm findin' that it saciates the thirst  yet the hunger almost hurts cause you know the expectations are a burden tiny fragments of imagination floating over countless other personal explosions of a special mystic kind, that is very hard to find but together we can try exploring heaven if you got the money I´ve got the car we’ll drive all night and in the morning we’ll put it together,thats alright the story  is your and mine so we'll be fine if trust is on our side makin’ memories that will bind us for a lifetime You remember when they asked us what our plane was? And we shrugged and laughed and told them it’s beyond us It was never on my mind, all the love I’d leave behind But we always said we wanted to be older
