Track Name: So Alive
You’re the fire that burns in me
A flame that’s born to bring clarity
Pull me out of dark and into grace
Shine your light on your people’s face.

Gone is the past now I’m moving on
Every single breath is my favorite song

I feel so alive! When I’m in your fire
I feel so alive! Lifting your name higher singing:
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh.

You brought me back to life!
When I live in your love I will never die
I can’t help myself from singing:
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh.

Yeah, here we go! This love’s miraculous
And I can hardly comprehend
And I know, you died a king a man
So we can have love again!

I want to see what you’re like
Plenty of time with you and I
Surrounded by dirt when I die
But I’m so alive! So alive!
Track Name: Heartbeat (feat. K-Low)
How’d we make it to this place? The answer isn’t clear.
When you’re questioning your faith, the answer isn’t fear.
Voices telling me to quit—I hear them in my ear.
The only opposition I can see is in the mirror.

There were times in my life where we grew apart,
But your supernova light cut through the dark.
Both your hands reaching out to renew my heart.
Your grace is enough, GOD, you always do your part.

Yeah, I’m living to give it another try.
Wasting my time embracing the lie, trying to be that other guy.
That is not me, he’s a copy of a man that’s dead.
In the grave now gone away now and I’m free instead.

And all this time I thought I’d try to understand.
But to understand means reaching out with broken hands:
To feel a heartbeat.
Oh, Oh, Oh
Do you feel your heart beating?

Mama said this was a hit the moment that she heard it,
I could picture stadiums and people singing worship.
Touching lives of millions deep beneath the surface,
He bought my life at a price when my soul was purchased.

Reminiscing on the days when I walked away,
Just a sheep without a shepherd I had gone astray.
Prodigal son hoping for a brighter day,
He opened up my eyes finally I can find my way.

Yeah, I’m living to give it another try
Wasting my time embracing the lie, trying to be that other guy
That is not me, he’s a copy of a man that’s dead.
In the grave now gone away now and I’m free instead.

Yeah, you gave your life to restart me,
Brought me to a place where I can feel my heartbeat!
Track Name: I Know You Will
When the dark is moving in
And I can’t see my own two hands
Will I see the stars again
I hope I will, I hope I will

When all I feel is hurt within
I know I’m in deep again
I thought love was innocent
But it’s starting to kill, starting to kill

So give me one chance to fall in love again
So give me one chance to repeat the beginning and the end
I don’t know how to make it work again
But I know you will, I know you will, I know you will

When hope is wearing thin
And I fall down in ruins
Will I know your heart again
I hope I will, I hope I will

So give me one chance to fall in love again
So give me one chance to repeat the beginning and the end
I don’t know how to make it work again
But I know you will, I know you will, I know you will

I thought love was innocent
But it’s starting to kill, starting to kill
Track Name: Don't Ruin This
Check Check!
Everyone! Have you seen the news today?
I’m freaking out
There’s a time and place for everything
But how about this
All the crazy things that are happening
Around the world
Can we settle down? Don’t ruin this for me.

I don’t expect you to believe it
But this is real for me
I know it’s not the way you see it
You don’t know what’s at stake!
Don’t ruin this for me!

Everyone, seems to think they know what’s best
Politics, to the way their special diet is
But why the war? There’s a time and place for everything
So how about this:
Lets settle down! Don’t ruin this for me.

I don’t expect you to believe it
But this is real for me
I know it’s not the way you see it
You don’t know what’s at stake!
Don’t ruin this for me!

I don’t know! But I don’t mind it.
Where’s the faith in the plan?
Where’s your kindness?
How to trust, how to love—Have you tried it?
I don’t know! And I don’t mind it.
Where’s the faith in the plan?
Where’s your kindness?
How to trust, how to love—Have you tried it?

Don’t ruin this for me!
Track Name: Reality
I remember times when we were younger
We used to dress up like kings and queens
We would make fools of ourselves—it didn’t matter
As long as you’re here with me.

We could close our eyes and have what we wanted
But all I really wanted was you!
You stole my heart from the very beginning
You are my dream come true.

So would you take my hand and make dreams reality?
Do you understand you’re all I was meant to be?
Yeah (oh oh) step off the ledge now (oh oh) and we won’t fall
So would you take my hand and make dreams reality?

You said that this wouldn’t last forever
That we were “always meant to grow apart”
But babe I’m not the one to give up so easy
I loved you from the start

So would you take my hand and make dreams reality?
Do you understand you’re all I was meant to be?
Yeah (oh oh) step off the ledge now (oh oh) and we won’t fall
So would you take my hand and make dreams reality?

You no longer have to be afraid
As long as your hand’s in mine.

So would you take my hand and make dreams reality?
Do you understand you’re all I was meant to be?
Yeah (oh oh) step off the ledge now (oh oh) and we won’t fall
So would you take my hand and make dreams reality?

Woah oh, ohh oh, woah oh
Track Name: Carry On
Would you trade a simple rhyme
And lend a moment of your time
To help with all my messes
I’ve got a few questions:

Was that cross weighing to much?
Did your friends grow out of touch?
Now I think I can relate
I’m suffocating from the weight.

And I don’t want to lose myself
I don’t want to give up hope.
Will my arms be strong enough?
Will my legs hold me up?
And I don’t want to listen but a voice is telling me to run,
I need somewhere to belong, till my feet can carry on.

Jesus I’m a lonely soul
Wandering this lonely road
Of questions without answers
But I’m not taking chances
Let me know if there’s a way
To circumvent all of this pain
Tell me LORD what did you think
When you were hanging on that tree.

And I don’t want to lose myself
I don’t want to give up hope.
Will my arms be strong enough?
Will my legs hold me up?
And I don’t know where I’m going, but I know what I’m running from.
Ohhh
I need someone to lean on, till my feet can carry on.

And I don’t want to lose myself
I don’t want to give up hope.
Will my arms be strong enough?
Will my legs hold me up?
And I don’t know where I’m going, but I know what I’m running from.
Ohhh
I need someone to lean on, till my heart can carry on.
Track Name: Deeper Than Oceans (feat. K-Low)
Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah.

Her deep sea green eyes see that ocean blue
She loves her hometown but wants an ocean view
A shack on the sand would nicely do
She smiles in the day, but happy nights are few.

She works late to get paid waiting tables for tips
She dreams of leaving this place she’s planning her trips
Far from content, distant from joy
Can’t find what she wants in any man or boy.

So she toys with the notion that there’s no hope
Doses off to tv after lighting a smoke
About to croak, dying by design
Her mind stays awake all night and won’t recline.

Thoughts invade and raid and choices are made
Pain shows his ugly face through that razor blade
He craves attention and she’s willing to give it
She only has one life but she’s scared to live it.

Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah.

He wakes up alone smelling like an ashtray
And he needs the needle before he starts his day
Can’t find his way, losing direction
When It comes to GOD’s love he feels like the exception.

That it wasn’t really ever even meant for him
Wishing that a single sign would be sent to him
Tears cascade down his face as he prays:
GOD why’d you have to make me this way?

Why are things so wrong? It’s the same old song
I go to the youth group but I don’t belong
‘Cause I have a past and I fight addiction
Tried to talk to some people but no one listens

They brush me off, frost-bitten shoulder
This tunnel is dark and I’m getting colder
Wishing I was older and past all this
Then maybe so-called saints would look past all this!

Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah.

You see my heart bleeds for the broken hearted
For those on their own far from where they started
Renegades, runaways, and the faith departed
Outcasts, left-out, and always forgotten.

And for those who hate church all because of the people
There’s no one like my GOD He has no equal
Though a pastor might fail and forget your name
GOD knows the hairs on your head, and He built your frame

Loves you the same, yesterday—today
Hebrews 13:8 Jesus doesn’t change
So let him replace all of those who’ve wronged you
Spend each moment with you, yes He longs to.

Hold you so close through those lonely nights
But you take hold He only invites
He’s a gentle man and won’t force His hand
But you can see from the start that you’ve been in His plan.

Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah.
