Why do you fear change You're folding in trust And I'm trying to help you see Your eyes so fixed and hollow Only serve to paralyze this dream Go on carry on I'll be counting waves Go on carry on I'll be counting waves When you go near to the edge You'll see the waters rise The tide under this moonlit sky Will pull you out And take you into Why do you feel shame Isn't this love ’Cause I'm trying to help you see Can you not seek to follow Can you not seek to know The space between Go on carry on I'll be counting waves Fear not to last This too shall pass Love your days When you go near to the edge You'll see the waters rise The tide under this moonlit sky Will pull you out And take you into Why do we fear change When everything's locked And we're trying to find the key Today is just a shadow Of what tomorrow could be Go on carry on Be strong Counting waves Fear not to last This too shall pass Love your days When you go near to the edge You'll see the waters rise The tide under this moonlit sky Will pull you out And take you into

Let It Run 04:00
Visions of loveliness Visions of open hands We're criss cross black dots Hiding in the tree tops Friend Everybody lookin’ with the same expression Everybody lookin’ with the same expression Are you true Is it pure Are you sure that you're there Loved or gone Well Crick Crack Just open the doors To the flood Let it run wild Let it run So left choking On the beauty of a waking dream Calling on the sky Just to look less lonely Everybody’s lookin’ with the same expression Everybody lookin’ with the same expression Are you true Is it pure Are you sure that you're there Loved or gone Crick Crack Just open the doors To the flood Let it run wild Let it run Everybody's busy Looking down at the pavement Seeing what I see Are you true Is it pure Are you sure that you're there Loved or gone Crick Crack Just open the doors To your flood Let it run wild Let it run

Tamara Song 05:01
My sapphire stone You lie above I'm wandering in sunlight Love We're fireflies We're not alone If we should come to rest In the palm of heaven's hand Then may we know the sand we lie upon If we should come to rest In the palm of heaven's hand And out of many there Return to one Your fragile soul Is tired enough So move on slow We never stop Your crypt of light Yet to be known If we should come to rest In the palm of heaven's hand Then may we know the sand we lie upon If we should come to rest In the palm of heaven's hand And out of many there Return to one When all is hurt Be fit to fall As rain on Earth When all is hurt Be fit to fall As rain on Earth Home will call If we should come to rest In the palm of heaven's hand Then may we know the sand we lie upon If we should come to rest In the palm of heaven's hand And out of many there Return to one

Afraid 05:45
I'd like to hold you close Make you feel safe Not so afraid of yourself If we have to part So it shall be I'd like to help you suffer less Not be so locked up In your thoughts Afraid of love And all under the sun I'll hide out in your space Emptiness on my face I'll be keeping you safe When you're cold and alone Until you come out and play I'd like to know you more Tell you you're fine Even though you're not When you worry so much It makes me want to cry Fragile like the leaves Come fall Red yellow gold I love them all I guess it's just the way we love I'll hide out in your space Emptiness on my face I'll be keeping you safe When you're cold and alone Until you come out and play Here I am I don't wanna come out Null to the bone I don't wanna come out I've been dead And I wanna come out Call my name ‘Cause I wanna come out Here I am And I wanna come out Null to the bone I don't wanna come out I've been dead And I wanna come out Call my name ‘Cause I wanna come out I'll hide out in your space Emptiness on my face I'll be keeping you safe When you're cold and alone Until you come out and play

Fly 03:50
Carry on Do as you will do What's it gonna take These mirrors always breaking down Resounding in the sound Moving on An easy thing to do Glide as you would sail The water never fails us How In swollen beating eyes We're white lace strings of time Best let the feather fly Carry on Do as you will do Dance like you're a child And never bring the level down Find beauty bring it out From blind and fading eyes Best let the feather fly
6.
Make your garden grow White Bird Dream out loud doe While we send her out to you Cold is the wind On your blue wing In bits of broken things We don't stand a chance We're White Birds When you come I'll crawl To your perch When you come I'll crawl To your perch It's a lovely thing How we found a pearl Through wind worn hell swells Cracked shells melt As we find our world When you come I’ll crawl To your perch When you come I'll crawl To your perch Remember you're not still When you come I'll crawl To your perch When you come I'll crawl To your perch Sending Love To You
