Track Name: Too Far Away Too Long
I've been trying, to find my way out here, i wandered off all on my own, I've been praying, but can i ask You, to help me not to disappoint You... Am I gunna find my way back home, Oh, the place that made me who I am, am I still the kind that would belong, or have i been too far away too long... Am I still within arm's length, a couple right turns and a few steps back will a be ok, I,m wandering around even though i know the way, i know... the way... Am i gunna find my way back home, oh, the place that made me who i am, am i still the kind that would belong, or have i been too far away too long... i know i've been too far away, but i'm coming home..... (:

Track Name: Prodigal Son
Its a wasted night I cant feel anything. I come back down and its all about the same. Please welcome me back oh please welcome me back wanna come back home. Gonna close my eyes, say a prayer tonight, that you'll take me back and you'll make it all right. These words seem empty, there's nothing else left. Its all gone. Come out of the cold, out of the dark, its a brand new start. There's a burning fire, can't turn away, don't look back. Its burning deep within your heart and your life, its about to change. I don't know why, its just the way it is. Some times we don't deserve what we get. Its out of my hands, its all in His plan. . . thats just the way it is.
Track Name: Falling Back
Can't keep up, and if i do i can't stay up for long, I'm going down i'm slipping, so don't look down, don't look down the ground looks so far down, don't look back, the things you couldn't catch are catching up fast.... can't wake up, my eyes won't stay open, can't get up, no, no not this morning, can't go on, i keep on going nowhere, on and on, but a can't stop so i keep on going on and on and on... falling back on You... Don't look now, I'm not ready just hold on, and i'll get it together, i'll be fine, i'll be fine i swear i'll try again to get it right.... falling back on You...
Track Name: Joy Ride
Every time i tell myself, i can do it all, and take it on, i always end up crying on on the floor, even when i close my eyes, and i'm asking God, help me do it right, it never fails, i still find my own way... But i feel You'r arms around me, holding me together, I'll stay right here forever, I'm falling on my own, as hard as i try, gotta strap on in to this joy ride... Now i'm moving up making momma proud, i'll get my own place, in my home town, no one can catch me, no one can stop me now, when i'm above the crowd, and i'm playing proud, i'm brought right back face to the ground, don't ever want to do this without you inside of me...
Track Name: Being You
You took away all the Pain, You took away all the shame, You took all the blame, You took away all the pain, Just by being You, perfect, just by being You, blameless, just by being You, selfless, Just by being You... You washed away all the stain, And all the things i break, all of my mistakes, You washed it all away...You paid for all my pride, and selfishness inside, and the things i have to hide, for all of this You died... And by Your death You madd me perfect, and by Your death You made blameless, and in some glorious way we traded places, And i can be like You....
