Track Name: In my Lungs
I’ve been lying to myself, and I’ve been lying to you
After all these years, it’s hard to be true
And often I stay up and wonder does it matter to you
If the words I believe, are the words I choose

So don’t let me, live my life with this bandage on
Don’t let me, let the fear of what I’m not, make my heart numb
And don’t let me sing another song, without feeling fire in my lungs

I’ve been lying to myself, and I’ve been lying to you
After all these years, it’s hard to be true
And often I’ve stayed up and wondered could I come back new
Forget these words I’ve believed that lead me far from you

So don’t let me, live my life with this bandage on
Don’t let me, let the fear of what I’m not, make my heart numb
And don’t let me sing another song, without feeling fire in my lungs

So would you tear my idols down,
Make my heart your holy ground,
Come light your fire in me
Keep my eyes upon your thrown
Cus' all my hopes in you alone
Come light your fire in me

So don’t let me, live my life with this bandage on…
Track Name: Adonai
I promise you I will not waist your time
Thinking of ways to clear my name
Oh Adonai, have mercy on me
If you’re still listening to me,
There’s only one thing that I need now
Oh Adonai, have mercy on me

Cus’ I, have got nothing to bring
Yea I, have got nothing to bring

I know I question, know I doubt
Don’t always hear when you call out, to me
Oh Adonai, have mercy on me
If you’re still up there looking down
There’s only one thing that I need now
Oh Adonai, have mercy on me

Cus’ I, have got nothing to bring
Yea I, have got nothing to bring
Cus’ I, have got nothing to bring
Yea I, have got nothing …

I promise you I will not waist your time
Thinking of ways to clear my name
Oh Adonai, have mercy on me
Oh Adonai, have mercy on me
Oh Adonai, have mercy on me
Track Name: God, Be my Vision
God, be my vision, be my Holy truth
Yea, I’ll be the branches if you’ll be the root
I’d give all my freedom, yea I’d become a slave
To lay on your shore and be washed by your waves
To lay on your shore and be washed by your waves

I don’t care for riches nor mans empty praise
Cus’ you’re all I want, for all of my days
I’d give all my money, yea I’d throw it away
To stand in your presence, and feel the light of your face
To stand in your presence, and feel the light of your face

All I want is You, You know
Cus’ through the joy of letting go,
I’ve found my peace, I’ve found my hope, I’ve found my home

God, be my treasure, Lord be my reward
Be my Holy Jesus, what I’m fighting for
I’d give all my hist’ry, just to stand at your door
To knock and hear, “enter you’re an orphan no more”
To knock and hear, “enter you’re an orphan no more”
Track Name: Not Yet, Young Heart
Well, I’m a son of coal, a daughter of tar
From the dust you came, from the dust you are
We’re not beautiful not yet, oh! young heart
Yeah the rain has yet to fall and make mud of my scars

Well so, soon,
My heart will know,
You,
Without a veil,
Between us,
I’ll see your face
And become,
Like You.

Well I’m the son of a woman, the daughter of man
From the dust you came, from the dust I am
We’re not home not yet, oh! That distant land
Yeah we’ve still a few roads left to travel without the side of your hand

I’m a son of the valley, a daughter of fear
From the dust we’re raised, and to the dust we’re reared
We’re not whole, not yet, oh! but we’re drawing near
Ya there’s still a few hours left tonight before the sun dries our tears
Ya there’s still a few hours left tonight before the sun dries our tears
Track Name: Fountain pt. II
Let my bones, that once were broken, dance now
Let my heart that once was shattered, rejoice
Let my light that once was dimmed down, shine out
And let that garden snake’s lies be unmade, and water flow

It’s coming from inside of me
This life, this hope, this freedom
Your love it changes everything
You’re a fountain of joy

Spring up oh well!
Track Name: Here
I think you’re beautiful
Though I’ve never seen your face
I think you’re beautiful
Though we’ve never shared the same place,
With our bodies
With our bodies
Yeah

You are here, and I feel it
You are here, and I know it
You are all around me
