Track Name: Grow
If you give it a little time
You get just what you need
Down the road, then we unwind
And get back on our feet
And the creatures of the forest
Don't worry about where to feed
Just give it time and follow the signs
Cause your trust is free

Now the open road might be bold
But how do we learn what we believe?
A saving grace, a lasting taste
A breath of eternity

I wanna grow
I wanna grow
But I just don't know how
I wanna go
I wanna go
But I just don't know how

I hope all hope is not forgotten
And we don't lose our place all along
And the lost are not forsaken
For the turns that they made wrong
And God you can't be angry at satan
Cause he's losing all along
Pluck him outta my head
And let me go to bed
And put him where he belongs

I wanna grow
I wanna grow
But I just don't know how
I wanna go
I wanna go
But I just don't know how
Track Name: Gave It All I Could
One day I'll unwind my mind
And travel through the rivers of my heart
And trek the mountains of my long lost loves
And the canyons of the pieces fallen apart

I gave it all I could
I gave it all I could and it was never enough
I gave it all I could
I gave it all I could and it was never enough

One day I'll get rid of all my worries
And let my soul just be
A place for clouds to settle
And a place for angels to sing
And a place full of endless peace

But for now
I gotta live with me
But for now
I gotta live with me
But for now
I gotta live with me
But for now

I gave it all I could
I gave it all I could and it was never enough
I gave it all I could
I gave it all I could and it was never enough

One day I won't be so selfish
One day I will think of you
And turn back the hands of time
And somehow make you mine again
After all that I put you through

But for now
I gotta live with me
But for now
I gotta live with me
But for now
I gotta live with me
But for now

I gave it all I could
I gave it all I could and it was never enough
I gave it all I could
I gave it all I could and it was never enough
Track Name: Charmed
Sunrise, sunset
We lay our heads down to rest
Shut our eyes, our dreams unfold
And tell us stories that we never told
Listen closely my dear
As my words they may
Remind you of things lost today

And though tomorrow's charms are shiny, yes
It's today's gems, they are the best

Come one, come all
Right now
Crawl, crawl
To feel free
Yeah, get up on your knees
And let your ankles root up like trees
When you stand taller, there's more to see
When you stand taller, there's more to see
When you stand taller, there's more to see
When you stand taller, there's more to see

And though tomorrow's charms are shiny, yes
It's today's gems, they are the best
Track Name: Walked Away
I couldn't stay so I walked away
My driven ambition was clear as day
Under the trees that bloom the month of May
I walked away, I walked away

I walked away
I walked away
Clear as day

Where did you go when I saw you behind me?
Where did you got when I saw you following me?

I walked away
I walked away
Clear as day

I slept with my eyes open
Worked with my eyes shut
I thought about you every morning 'til dusk
Thought of the times we faced our worst
I walked away 'cause I felt hurt

I walked away
I walked away
Clear as day

Where did you go when I saw you behind me?
Where did you got when I saw you following me?

I walked away
I walked away
Clear as day
Track Name: Miss You
I miss you everyday
Like the sun misses the rain
And in my heart it's pain
Like a bird without a wing
Yeah, I miss you everyday

It was a long time ago
When together we started to grow
And in my heart I know
There's a long way to go
I just didn't know I'd go alone

You mean so much to me
Like the breeze means to the trees
And there was so much ease
When it was just you and me
Now I look for you in the leaves
Track Name: West Virginia
Hey there West Virginia
with the valley and the pines
I opened myself to meet ya on that June sunrise
And you really took me by a big surprise
I never thought I'd ever look that deep in your eyes

As the hills rolled on
So did us
We were together alone
And together enough
And together at home
And together not rushed
To be anything and everything that we can be
As us

It was a story book picture
A tale so very tall
No one would believe ya
Except a giant above us all

You really took me by a big surprise
I never thought I'd ever look that deep in your eyes
Track Name: Reasons
Take a look, whatchu see?
I see around, everything I need, babe
Count to two, maybe three
Feel the blues inside of me, babe
Four once more, feel the beat
Move your body and move your feet, babe
The here and now, yeah just be
You be you, and I'll be me

There's a reason
We can see, yeah

The clouds crossed over and the skies opened wide
As wide as my heart and as big as my pride, babe
I dance with them and I dance with the sun
I dance with the ground and I dance with everyone, babe
Move with the sky, I move with the Earth
I plant my seed and I wait for my birth, babe
I sing my song and I live for my dreams
I dance all night 'til I fall to my knees

There's a reason
We can see, yeah
Track Name: So This Is Life
Johnny south bound wrote me a letter
Said, "Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories"
And ol' Jimmy picked up his guitar again
Waiting for the music to breathe
Nicole is back in school again, done workin' in the factories
Workin' in the factories
Jessie's in her house with her man
A child she foresees

So this is life
What's before us
What's behind us
What's inside us
But what's above us?
Or below us?
Or can show us the more?

Momma's sellin' homes again
She needs a dime, that woman needs a dime
And poppa's out on the horse again
Because he loves to ride
And Dawn is back at home again
And proud mama, a proud mama
And Terry's back in town again
But he ain't ever around

So this is life
What's before us
What's behind us
What's inside us
But what's above us?
Or below us?
Or can show us the more?

Jenny's at the doc again
Her stomach's round, her stomach's so round
Bradley's at the club again, waiting for the winter storms
The boys are back in school again
They love to learn, they love to learn
And here I am at home again
Staring at the wall

So this is life
What's before us
What's behind us
What's inside us
But what's above us?
Or below us?
Or can show us the more?
Track Name: Red Cloud Road
Red Cloud Road
It's where I want to go
Red Cloud Road
It's where I want go

It's where I want my death
Where I wanna take my last breath
So Red Cloud Road
Take me home

And oh dear momma if I die young
Oh dear momma if I die young
Just let me go

Cause I need some place to rest
Some where to put my head
And I need some where to be and maybe here ain't for me

And oh dear momma tell the family
Oh dear momma tell the family that I'm free
That I'm free

Red Cloud Road
It's where I want to go
Red Cloud Road
It's where I want go

It's where I want my death
Where I wanna take my last breath
So Red Cloud Road
Take me home

And oh dear momma if I die young
Oh dear momma if I die young
Just let me go

Cause I need some place to rest
Some where to put my head
And I need some where to be and maybe here ain't for me

And oh dear momma tell the family
Oh dear momma tell the family that I'm free
