Track Name: Spinning On Without Me
Everything's at stake
One more candle on the cake
One less answer, one more thing to do.
I don't know who to trust
Leaves me standing in the dust, and
I don't wanna be there anymore

And I've been feeling like the world is
spinning on without me,
Or is it just me?

So I make the call
When you stand, you risk the fall
I put my money down, I play my hand
Another year on track
for two steps forward, two steps back
and I don't wanna be there anymore

And I've been feeling like the world is
spinning on without me,
Or is it just me?
Track Name: Merry-Go-Round With The Sun
We wanna live like we are burning up inside -
With so much out in front we never look behind.

Chorus:
World keeps turning, we’re still hanging on.
It’s a merry-go-round with the sun. This should be fun…

I wanna go out and be with my friends, tonight.
We’re running so hard, I know we’ll hit our stride.

Chorus

The night, it starts out young, and it will never die.
It takes us by the hand; it takes us by surprise.

Chorus
Track Name: Speed Up Slow Down
I've seen glimpses, I've felt my heart beat
I still feel the fire inside of me
Can't stand too close to feel the glow,
'cause it keeps burning me
We live to fight another day

Chorus:
And I wish I could speed up,
and I wish I could slow down

I flew out, I just needed to see
Will I ever be someone you need?
We've aimed so high and come so far,
and somehow fell between
My dreams are what are keeping me awake

Chorus

From this airplane, I can see below
All the roads and fields buried in snow
Sometimes I feel that I'm most lost
when I am headed home, and
the world that I've been shown fades away

Chorus
Track Name: I Could Make You New
My blood is grief, but my veins aren't jaded
My heart is light, but it gets so weighted
down with everything I hold onto
Sometimes that means hanging on for dear life, too

Chorus:
I could make you new

When did the sun rise? It snuck up on me
When you're awake, the night moves so slowly
My eyes closed, but looking out for you
I think you've been looking out for me, too

Chorus

When we are young, we remain there, ageless
My soul is old, and it is contagious
I've spent my life holding out for you
And have you been hanging on for me, too?

Chorus
Track Name: Clenched Hands Brave Demands
We have a dream when we are young -
we act it out, we love to run.
Along the way some hear the sound.
I hope I never come around.
I wanna see
Like everything is still unseen.
It burns inside
And I am so alive.

We saw the light, we called it dawn
Some kids, they put sunglasses on.
And in the planes, they pull the shade.
I hope I never get that way.
I wanna see
Like everything is still unseen.
It burns inside
And I am so alive.

And when we’re young, we love to sing.
The children’s chorus voices ring.
And I remember where I stood
When my voice sang like it could.
I wanna sing
Like there is something left to sing.
It burns inside
And I know….

I've never felt like this before.
