Track Name: Steady Me
Steady me
Cause I'm trembling inside
Stay with me
Don't let me come untied
Cause I'm a whirlwind
And you're passing the time
Steady me

Speak to me
Words that calm my ears
Whisper soft
Things that I need to hear
Don't let me
Be drawn away
Speak to me

Cause after time
I came running in, to your
Running in to your arms
I always go
Running off
I'm always running
Oh, don't let me run away

Could it be
That we breathe the same air
You have a chance
To get close if you dare
And melt off
What's cold inside
Warm the air

Cause after time
I came running in, to your
Running in to your arms
I always go
Running off
I'm always running
Oh, don't let me run away

Cause you balance
And you hold my heart
Higher than it was before
Oh, you balance me
When you hold my heart
So don't let me walk out the door

Cause after time
I came running in, to your
Running in to your arms
I always go
Running off
I'm always running
Oh, don't let me run away
Track Name: Tranquility
It's a funny feeling, isn't it
To realize you've gone off the script?
It's a funny feeling, isn't it
To lose control?
I've been fumbling for the words to say
But the silence closes over me
And I'm finding out there's more of me
That I don't know

Won't you find me some peace
I wanna write me in some peace
The script's been gone for far too long
I'm tired of writing this old song
And I'm dying for a little tranquility

Not a day goes by when you can't see
My striving is futility
Not a day goes by when I can't see
Another flaw
I've been working day and night to fill
This role that leaves me overwhelmed
But in the end I'm just another
Clever fool

Won't you find me some peace
I wanna write me in some peace
The script's been gone for far too long
I'm tired of writing this old song
And I'm dying for a little tranquility

And when the music plays
I'm lost in my charade
Tired of acting
i don't wanna see the stage lights
I wanna see the sunlight

Won't you find me some peace
I wanna write me in some peace
The script's been gone for far too long
I'm tired of writing this old song
And I'm dying for a little tranquility
Track Name: Colors Froze
When I was young and I was foolish
A boy took my heart, wouldn't break it
He just stretched it thin
Stretched it from the core
I copied pictures at a museum
Some of them were just like him
The colors flowed
Then hit the page and froze

I never thought someone could
Be one of those hues in
Constant motion, they'd
Have so much to lose
If they froze

I used to be alive and bright
But now I'm just in black and white
Waiting for some paint to fill this frame
My dreams were filled with paintbrush strokes
Colors gone when I awoke
Then back again
When I was at sleep's door

I never thought someone could
Be one of those hues in
Constant motion, they'd
Have so much to lose
If they froze

Violet fills the air
My blue breath everywhere
I want to be
A moving, flowing color

I never knew that I could
Be one of those hues in
Constant motion
I will not be the one
Who froze
Track Name: Cold Sun
Light breaks, it's a new dawn
Fragmented rays shining from the sun
Trees yawn and the birds sing
And colors awake me from my night's dream

I don't wanna wake up to a cold sun
A heartless reminder of what I haven't done
I wanna wake up to a new day
I wanna let the colors wash my grey away

I can't remember when the night fell
A cold and callous covering I know so well
I only know when the earth warms
I'm freed up by the width of the sky's arms
Track Name: Rhyme
A moment by surprise
Didn't know it's richness until I looked into your eyes
And I still think I don't know
You called me your girl and then we laughed into the night
I was feeling unsteady, but now I feel alright
You brought to my mind
Words I never thought I'd find

I don't want another rhyme but a love song
I don't want another love song but you
Boy, you came into my life just in time
And you're always running through my mind
I don't want another love song but you

If your hand was gone from mine
My smile would fade away, and then my eyes would lose their shine
But I know it's not my choice
It's hard to relinquish control we long to know
But you broke my calculations, and I'm starting to let go
Cause that place inside your chest
Is the best place I can rest

I don't want another rhyme but a love song
I don't want another love song but you
Boy, you came into my life just in time
And you're always running through my mind
I don't want another love song but you

You brought to these words something new
You gave to these lines a different view
I never found this song with anybody else
And I can't help but fall for you

I don't want another rhyme but a love song
I don't want another love song but you
Boy, you came into my life just in time
And you're always running through my mind
I don't want another love song but you

I open my heart slowly
And you brush my hair back softly
And I am safe
Track Name: Rising Dawn
There is an anchor for my soul
Strong and unwavering through every storm
Though I am faltering, he stands secure
Though I am trembling, his love is sure

Every day my heart is thinking of
Some way to keep hanging on
But through each weary, striving hour
I've missed the rising dawn

When I am damaged, my heart in pain
A hundred roadblocks in pouring rain
I look to Jesus, the flawless head
And cling to him, the living bread

Every day my heart is thinking of
Some way to keep hanging on
But through each weary, striving hour
I've missed the rising dawn

Some shining morning his day will come
And we will hear resounding drums
A heavenly choir breaks through the sea
My Savior's coming back for me

Every day my heart is thinking of
Some way to keep hanging on
But through each weary, striving hour
I've missed the rising dawn
