Track Name: Fighting Wars
I’m tired of wrestling with this
Cause it’s not right to keep a war on
For the sake of proving I’m right
And too many suns have gone down
On too many thoughts of anger
So let’s lay down the laying blame
And pick up where we left off

Could you find it in your heart
To let go and let live again
Cause I’m not asking for apologies
I just want to be a friend

And I know it’s finished
Cause you told me so many times
But that don’t make it easy
To swallow pride and make it right
If not with you, with me and God
I guess I’m in for another heartbreak
You won’t even give me a chance to say

Could you find it in your heart
To let go and let live again
Cause I’m not asking for apologies
I just want to be a friend

And I know I’ve lost you completely
But please don’t lose yourself
In fighting unfinished wars
Track Name: Long Suffering
Would someone please explain to me
what just happened here
between friday night and sunday morning
cause there’s a big change
from the pretty little smile she gave me
and the awkward silence filling up her car
I don’t know
No I don’t have a clue
but I had the afternoon
to think and pray and pace around the room
and a strill small voice
keeps telling me i’m not to worry
everything will be just find
I’m so glad that I’m not the one in control

I won’t worry about a broken heart
I just keep telling myself
everything is gonna work out
I won’t worry about a broken heart
cause i know that love is meant to be
longsuffering

one month later not a lot has changed
but i’m happy just to say
we’re as close as friends as ever before
and I am willing to wait
as long as it will take
to earn her heart
cause you know that she’s got mine
I’m not crazy
I’m even pretty sure I’m thinking clearly

Maybe I’m just an optimist
after all i’m betting everthing
on a second chance but
i don’t know what else to do but
turn things over to the one
who invented the romance
Track Name: Being Fickle
Got up this morning to the wailing of my alarm clock
Rubbing the sleep out of my eyes seems harder to do than yesterday
It’s all this muddle mess of mixed up thoughts inside my brain
Which my sleep did little good to rearrange

Why does God seem further away this morning?
I know that it’s just me being fickle
Why can’t I take control of my emotion?

It seems like every time I find a place of rest
I get pushed back to the real world as soon I get comfortable
Sometimes I think I’d like to sit a while and just enjoy the view
But there’s too many things in me that still need work

Why does God seem further away this morning?
I know that it’s just me being fickle
Why can’t I take control of my emotion?

Why does God put up with such a moody lover?
I don’t know but I’m thankful that he does
How does He put up with me?
I’d be sick of me by now
Track Name: 1000 Generations
wish that I could say I’ve never doubted
And never had to ask You why
But the truth is, I’ve had my share of second-guessings
And questioned if You’re right

I try to move the mountain of my unbelief
And part the water of my doubt
Are You sure that mustard seeds are really big enough
To help me see the unseen?

Help me to believe
Help me walk upon the raging sea
of all my inconsistency
Show me how to walk on water

I feel like the guy who laid upon the street
Who saw You in the crowd
All my common sense keeps telling me to hold my tongue but
I can’t let You walk on by

So help me to believe
Help me walk upon the raging sea
of all my inconsistency
Show me how to walk on water

Laying down my doubt
I’m picking up my faith
Faith to see a thousand generations
Track Name: What Happened
Too late to say that there’s still time
Too late to back away before you get burned
Too much innocence is lost
Too serious to say “I told you so”

I don’t know just what to say
Or would it even matter
Cause you never seem to listen anyway
And you know with all your heart what’s right
And still refuse to give up what you have

What happened to your purity?
What happened to the joy you found in simple things?
What is this tangled web you woven
Where you the only one that you’ve deceived?

I don’t know just what to say
Or would it even matter
Cause you never seem to listen anyway
And you know with all your heart what’s right
And still refuse to give up what you have

I’ve been on my knees
Been praying that Jesus will open your eyes
And show you that He is all you need
Track Name: Train Station
i come in between all the lovers
they visit me and say goodbye to each other
embraced fading into touching fingertips
they loose each others eyes as i break their heats

they always come to me
suitcase packed and ready
and it’s my job to give them
the saddest thirty seconds of their lives
as they watch the smoke and thunder roll away

i break appart the mothers from the sons
and bring about the day he comes of age
usher in a time when things will never be the same again
she covers up her eyes to hide away her tears

if only they’d remember that in six months to a year
i’ll be bringing them back home again
but in the middle of that moment
it’s never what they see
Track Name: Dance with the One Who Brought You
He watches her twirl, he watches her glide
She’s stealing the evening
So pretty tonight
Oh what a pity, when she walked through the door
She was holding his hand
But no more

Dance with the one who brought you
Stop giving eyes to all of the others
Maybe you’ll see that he’s got everything and more that you need
So, dance with the one who brought you

She’s so afraid that she’ll miss something good
And later in life have regret for what could have been
She can’t shake the thought from her head
that there might be someone picture perfect
what if you’re missing him, darlin’

Dance with the one who brought you
Stop giving eyes to all of the others
Maybe you’ll see that he’s got everything and more that you need
So, dance with the one who brought you

Maybe when he drops her off and he kisses her cheek
She’ll look back into his eyes and be able to see
That he’ll love her tomorrow
When she’s not wearing makeup
And the day after that when her hair is a mess
Cause it’s not about dresses or dances
It’s about being true

So dance with the one who loves you
Give him your heart and love him too
Forget the cares and concerns of a heart that’s still unsure
Dance with the one who loves you
Track Name: Overcome
Taken by surprise
I’m captured by your majesty that overtakes me
I’m caught up in your stregnth
I wonder at the beauty of your holiness

I’m overcome
I’m overwhelmed by your love

You alone are good
your grace is so far beyond any comprehension
so I stand in awe
of a heart that gives eternal affection

You take my hand
you give me freely your embrace
I’ve seen your glory and i’ll never be the same again
Track Name: One Line Epic
I took the moment tonight just write
To take a step back and evaluate life
With a pen in my hand and head full of thoughts
All fighting for a space on the page

All this before me, I came to realize
I’ve got one line epic to tell
Cause sooner or later what it all boils down to
Is one thing and one thing alone

I am nothing without you
No I am nothing without you

I have collected a world full of memory
A treasure of lessons I’ve learned so far
But the greatest of these is the one that it seems
I keep having to learn over again

I’m not even a single star in the universe
I’m not even a grain in the sands of time
