Track Name: The Other Side
Is every blank page
A story unfolding
A chance to write things over
Behind every blank stare
Is there a story, a child
A chance to make things right

And I, I really think so
And I, I think I know
And I, I'm slowly learning
To see the other side

If every new day
Brought rain, and clouds, and pain
Could you bear the weather?
If a brand new way
Brought hope would you choke
On your words or let it stay

And I, I really think so
And I, I think I know
And I, I'm slowly learning
To see the other side
Track Name: Two Weeks Three Days
I'm counting the days
I'm finding the ways
That I need you
I need you
It's driving me up the wall
And if you don't hear me
I'll fall
I'll fall

And I'd be somebody
Yeah I'd be someone
If only you showed me the way
And would you say
That you want me
And that you need me
Could we fit together somehow

There's no other way
Left to say
That I need you
That I need you

And I'd be somebody
Yeah I'd be someone
If only you showed me the way
And would you say
That you love me
And that you need me
Could we fit together somehow

And I'd be somebody
Yeah I'd be someone
If only you told me how
So tell me now
That you love me
And that you need me
Could we fit together somehow
Track Name: Your Love Waits
Your love waits for me
Your voice whispers kindly
You never boast
You guide me humbly

Your love is a gentleman
Selfless, not outspoken
You're slow to judge
You're quick to forgive me

Be my strength when I am weary
Be my purpose when hope is gone
And be my shelter, for I am weak
But you are strong, you are strong

Your love is good and true
No evil stands before you
You guard my hope
I trust you'll sustain me

So be my strength when I am weary
Be my purpose when hope is gone
And be my shelter, for I am weak
But you are strong, you are strong
Track Name: The Little Things
I'm so sorry for the things that I have done
And all the promises I made
That I then made to come undone
And I'm so sorry that I made you cry
And I'm so grateful you have got the guts
To call me out

And I'm so worried all the things that I have said
Have left a tear in a relationship
Without a needle or a thread
I thought I nearly had this figured out
I guess I'm needing to be humbled
If that's what it's about

Ooooohhh
You take me as I am
Ooooohhh
You love because you can

And I'm so thankful for the joy that you have got
And that you'd take me for the little things
So I could have the lot
I guess I'm slowly learning to admit
Some of the magnitude of what you did
Back then

Ooooohhh
You take me as I am
Ooooohhh
You love me cause you can

And I am falling into your patience
And now I know what it means to be forgiven by you
And this is true love, I know it cause hurts like hell

And I'm so sorry for the things that I have done
But all your promises are faithful
And I'm not the only one
Track Name: Beautiful
Is this a dream
Is this heaven
Cause this place is just too perfect
These lines are just to good
Am I breathing
Why am I scared to check my pulse
As I lose feeling
And I'm not breathing

And this is it
This is it
This is all

And this is good
This is perfect
This is beautiful
This is beautiful
Track Name: Wait and See
A simple song for a simple man
Trying to make his way in a complicated land
Of nights of rain and nights without sleep
He sings alone to an empty street
But he is a growing combination
Of what he has and what they need
He's got a funny destination
Just wait and see
Just wait and see

His time was short, his days were few
The things he wanted would never do
Running circles in his mind
Seeking answers he'd never find
Cause he had some crippling expectations
They just cloud the vision, rob the eyes
They stole the gift of fascination
Just wait and see
Just wait and see

A time for war a time for peace
A time for pain and a time to seek release
In black and white and sometimes gray
He's a splash of colour on a cloudy day
Cause he's got a lot of inspiration
Hard won, he'll fight just to keep it there
And he's got a risky occupation
Just wait and see
Just wait and see

He's coming home from uncharted shores
To the comfort of the knowledge that he is yours
And he is blessed to have the days
To sing the freedom of a better way
And he is tearing at the seams
He's got love in his smile, in his energy
And he's got lots of little dreams
Just wait and see
Just wait and see
