Track Name: For Giving
For Giving
Music and lyrics by Lara Martin

Lyrics:

I heard that there’s a storm that’s going on not far from here
I know that there are wars that still persist year after year
There is a fire burning all the chaos in my head
I’m sick and tired; I’ll either change the world or go back to bed

Chorus:
What if we left this planet a little brighter than it was before?
Maybe if wisdom ran it, we would understand what our two hands are for.
They are for giving, Forgiving, For Giving

And as the water rises, we are drowning in the consequence we made
Disastrous world surprises, but are they really a surprise when what we’ve paved is
a Godless world No shame, but we’re happy placing blame
Look at ourselves
Be the change you wish to see

What if we left this planet a little brighter than it was before
Maybe if wisdom ran it, we would understand what our two hands are for
What if we left this planet a little brighter than it was before
Maybe if wisdom ran it we would understand what our two hands are for
They are for giving, Forgiving For Giving

Corruption destruction and lying, people are needlessly dieing, what is this madness all for? I know there’s no simple solution, let truth be a peace revolution that opens perceptual doors more and more.

Let’s pray that from the ashes will rise a different civilization, one built on consultation, communication.
Let’s say we get together to make the world a little bit better compassion in action will soar more and more.

What if we left this planet a little brighter than it was before maybe if wisdom ran it we would understand what our two hands are for, they are For giving, Forgiving
For Giving….repeat
Track Name: Restless Times
These are restless times
when I can feel the space around my place
and in my heart
Please send me a sign
that we are meant to be eternally, we'll never part
Yet in my doubt I long to shout, can this be true I'm so confused, yet I refuse to let you go
cause I don't know yeah I don't know.

Peace I can not find,
when I'm without a trace of your embrace, my thoughts unwind
Love they say is blind
but can it also be so pure and free so sweet and kind
Yet in my doubt, I long to shout, can this be true, I'm so confused
what if I choose to let you go, Oh I don't know, yeah I don't know
Track Name: Love will find a way
Love will find a way
Music and lyrics by Lara Martin

Moving Pictures flicker in your eyes
The burning embers of another time
I’d give you all the faith I have inside
If it could reignite a spark to heal your heavy heart

Love will find a way
Believe that love will find a way believe that love will find a way
Believe that love will find a way a way

In winter only dreamers can survive the vacant stillness of a greying sky
I’d give you all the heat I have inside
If you could know that spring is closer than you realize

Love will find a way
Believe that love will find a way believe that love will find a way believe that love will find a way

I’d climb the very oldest highest tree
And sing a hymn of hope and reverie
If you could feel it seep into your bones
And know without a doubt you’re not alone

Love will find a way….
Track Name: Half Light
Half Light

I heard the whispering of endings from the start
But I chose to disregard the promptings of my heart

All my belongings now are gathered at the door
But what is this baggage for I just needed myself and nothing more

I got your note, and I reflected on every angry word you wrote
Making it easier easier…

Chorus
I can not stay here anymore
There’s a part of me that’s dieing that I’m needing to restore
I can not live in this half light
We ain’t growing in these shadows and I’m needing something bright

I tried to tell you when I felt this strange demise but you were too comfortable
Living in oblivion and lies
You looked in my eyes and saw the goodbyes so plainly and so clear
You covered my mouth and wouldn’t let out the things you didn’t want to hear

I got your note and I reflected on every angry word you wrote making it easier easier…

Chorus
I can not stay here anymore
There’s a part of me that’s dieing that I’m needing to restore
I can not live in this half light
We ain’t growing in these shadows and I’m needing something bright
Track Name: Steady Beating Drum
Steady Beating Drum

I woke up lonely. This wasn’t new
It wasn’t only about missing you
Something was killing deep inside my soul
Wanted to run and look the other way
Worry began to seize all the controls
Throw me a latter to a higher plane (then it came)

You are addicted to your beliefs
You play the victim, like a steady beating drum
If you’re conflicted by what you see, you run habitual emotion on repeat

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

When he was younger, just barely five, he heard his father say boys don’t cry.
Now that you’re older you must understand you are a soldier be a strong young man.
Then when your buried tears turn into pain, pray for a latter to a higher plane (then it came)
You are addicted to your beliefs, you play the tough one like a steady beating drum
If your conflicted by what you see, you run habitual emotion on repeat

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Let go, let go
You are more than what you fear or think you know
Let go let go
Like a river be the beauty that just flows

Oh Oh Oh oh Oh oh Oh
