Track Name: Love With a Broken Heart
Welcome back to life my friend
It's good to see you there again
Bruised and weathered by the storm
Newer than when you were born

Don't let go of love
Don't let go of love
When life takes you apart
Learn to love with a broken heart
Learn to love with a broken heart

Feet that learn again to walk
Lips that learn again to talk
Eyes that open up to see
There is beauty to behold again

Don't let go of love
You're a saint not a sinner
Track Name: Austin
Jacob carries Austin to the car for the first time
He’s six pounds and twenty hours old
Jacob looks at April and she’s tired but she’s smiling
He helps her in the car and shuts the door
He doublt checks the seatbelt on Austin’s brand new chair
And kisses Austin’s tiny little head

Do you realize that life will never be the same, never be the same again

April doesn’t have to say “slow down” for the first time
And it takes ten minutes longer to get home
Funny how the baby in the back, so small, changes everything

They pull up in the drive and a house becomes a home
Austin’s gonna make you proud
Austin’s gonna break your heart
Austin’s gonna make you better than you were before
Track Name: Linger Longer
We’re almost out of things to say
And we’ve both got work in the morning
But I have had the longest day
And you’re voice is what I need
We should say goodnight and get some sleep
And I’ll call you in the morning
But I have had the longest day today

I just want to know that your on the other side
I won’t even mind if you fall asleep
I just want to know that you’re on the other side
So linger a little longer on the line

We can talk about our days today
We can talk about tomorrow
And I wouldn’t mind another hour
Of sleepy thoughts and sentences
Drifting off before you reach the end

And as we start to fade, our thoughts are making half as much sense
And as we drift away, I’m thankful that you’re there
Track Name: Little Darling
Oh little darling have you lost your way
Oh little darling I feel for you
I know it hurts but don’t believe in lies
Your eyes are playing tricks on you

You try to control, try to be beautiful
But trying will let you down
But whatever your lot
I pray that you’ll sing “it is well…”

Oh litte darling if you could only feel
All of the love that we feel for you
Oh little darling you would be amazed
How many prayers are prayed for you

And when you don’t have the voice to sing
We will be singing for you
“It is well with my soul”
Track Name: How Good You've Got It
Baby, slow down.
You’re gonna crash if you don’t pay attention
Looking for more than what you have
And I know it’s easy to think that you’re missing something

You don’t know how good you’ve got it
Because life looks better when you just quit worrying about it all

If you only knew you innocent heart was a thing of beauty
You wouldn’t give it up so fast
And I know it’s easy to think that you’re missing something, but

Even the birds aren’t concerned with what they’re going to eat
How much more precious you are to me
