Track Name: Grace
Been walking in the sand too long
Been building my house in the sand for too long
Repeatedly I find myself
In the exactly same spot again

Been aiming pretty high up high
Been aiming but without a hit
I have aimed using everything but grace
I have aimed yet not counted with grace

I’d like to get to know grace
I want to move on with grace
I really need to feel
Grace a-coming my way

I consist of both sand and grace
Yet though I do try not to
I often end up closer to sand
My urge for grace it grows on me

I’d like to get to know grace
I want to move on with grace
I really need to feel
Grace a-coming my way

My grace comes and goes
I never seem to learn
My own grace comes and goes
Saving grace just waits
Track Name: Bad At Bay
Chinese takeout
With the chopsticks all set up
All set up and ready to go now
Serve you and I

Meal by meal
Candlelight
Kiss by kiss
Bed delight
Baby, it’s getting better
Baby, you and I

Our first second kiss
It was me declaring our togetherness
Our very first one
It is easily remembered

Though sincere
Still so easy
Way back then
It seemed to be
Baby, it’s getting better
Baby, I feel alright

Even the smallest delight
Keeps us doing alright
Even the smallest of good thoughts
Keeps the bad ones at bay

Baby, it’s getting better
Baby, I feel alright
Track Name: All My Concern
We have our very own banquet
You I’ll provide with the warmest blanket
I’ll light up a fire
All my concern you acquire
Me, I’m all yours for you now

This moment to me is far from dire
All my concern you acquire
Our bond is firm
Going for the long-term
More so now than ever before

In a moment the else fades
Thoughts of future escapades
My concern to me is now a pleasant burden

A holiday of wanting
A spring in waiting
Track Name: Play It Safe
Be bold, be strong
Be furious, all delirious
In this world, which space is mine
Will we know
Patiently given time

Let me know
Should I go play it safe
Trick or treat
Step out on a limb

Be kind, be gentle
Be yourself, all dust on the shelf
In this life
Living here and now
Will you come forth
Will you kneel or bow

Let us know
Should we go play it safe
Trick or treat
Step out on a limb
Let us know
Should we go play it safe
Trick or treat
Step out on a limb

Do we dare
Are we too aware
Seize the day
Yes or nay
Track Name: Search
Search
I rarely do know
Found
A little more I have
Where
Is our piece of mind
How hard is it to find

Then
An eager young kid
Now
I am just a lazy piece of
Waste
Time I don't want to
Waste no more time

Need
The word I do now
I want to feel
The presence of your dearest grace
Surrounding me now

Maybe
A little older, but am I
Wiser? I might well be
I don't know now you tell me

Search
I rarely do know
Found
A little more I have
Where
Is our piece of mind
How hard is it to find
Track Name: Boy She Could Sing
She could neither read nor write
She wouldn’t learn a single letter
It just wasn’t in her might
But my oh my she could sing
She could sing

She dressed neither right nor wrong
She had no sense of fashion
But when she felt for a song
Did she not prove herself strong
She proved them wrong

She could sing
Grab hold of the heart
She could sing
Like heaven’s own bird
She could sing
Grab hold of the heart
She could sing
Make clouds go their way
She could sing
Boy did she sing

In spite of all she went through
She did not lose her joy of song
She didn’t give a great impression
My oh my she proved herself strong
She could sing

She could sing
Grab hold of the heart
She could sing
Like heaven’s own bird
She could sing
Grab hold of the heart
She could sing
Make clouds go their way
She could sing
Track Name: Am I Ready To Let Go
Will broadband be my quicksand
I don’t know maybe it will show
Will hypocrisy be my fall
‘bout that I know notn at all

Will I conquer or see defeat
I’m not sure whether to eat meat
Will I prosper or see the gutter
Behold, and here’s my clutter

I’m not in need nor am I in wanting of any kind
It’s just that I find myself had to satisfy
I’m not n need yet I hear myself ask why

Will I come to care or to ignore
A song for love or even abhor
Is lending a hand too much to ask
Humanity might be too big a task

I’m not in need nor am I in wanting of any kind
It’s just that I find myself had to satisfy
I’m not n need yet I hear myself ask why

Am I ready to let go?

I’m not in need yet I hear myself ask why
Track Name: From A Line Of Men
I come from a line of men
Raised by the best of mothers
Some bound by duties of a home
Some of them bound to walk alone
In pursuit of their own piece of mind

I come from a line of men
Of lesser and greater kind
Looking for to find piece of mind
A relief from our own bind
In pursuit of our own happiness

Following footsteps of old
Or pursuing our own dreams of gold
What do we leave behind us here
One step forward a couple back
Trying to keep or break the mold

I come from a line of men
Fathers of daughters and sons
Some of them in fear of God
Some of them plain afraid of themselves
In pursuit of their own piece of mind
Track Name: Let Me Not Sway
In a dark mood I try not to dwell
It is not something I’m trying to sell
It is something that by now I know well

Could you let me know the light of day
I beg thee let me not sway
Don’t let me go too far away

Let me not sway
Let me not sway
Let me not sway

In the small room I try not to go
Yet every time, I’m there again
Don’t let me go too far away

Let me not sway
Let me not sway
Keep me in sight
