The Cross And Crow You lead the way I’ll follow quick behind right on your neck I’m ready to abscond the cross and crow together in the sky the lost and found they need each other’s touch You lead the way I give up all control I lost the path markers long ago the cross and crow together keep me here hope for the world the fear that I’m killing it You lead the way I’ll close my eyes and trust I think You know that I have said too much the cross and crow they burn into my arms I’m marked for life lost if you lead me wrong You lead the way I’ll follow quick behind right on your neck I’m ready to abscond

Fog The Windows The old tree finally came down the winter‘s been long and the winds were too strong now it’s spread all over the yard but spring will make it a nurse log new life will grow from it’s death shroud life that will rise, rise all around And though we are getting older our breath can still fog the car windows on Friday night, on Friday night but we can’t breathe together if we don’t look at each other eye to eye, so look in my eyes I know this dance can only work if we hold loosely to eachother but tonight let’s come close and carry one another for a while … let me hold you close the movies would have me believe the same as the songs and the magazines that I should be free to do anything but I am beginning to see the shackles I chose are the keys that fit the locks to all I need still I fall for the tricks everytime a glossy finish and some winning lines are all it takes to render me blind and then I come back to you seeking forgiveness from you once again, I’m sorry again I know that I have wounded you, I know that you have suffered I know that I got lost again in myself and in others I know this dance can only work If I prove I can be trusted so tonight please come close and let’s work on what’s been busted for awhile let me hold you close for awhile let me hold you close for awhile let me hold you close

Beggars and Limousines Beggars and limousines junkies and beauty queens hitting the streets on a Friday night all looking for the same thing This city eats its young so, sister, turn and run the divide it has become too deep for anyone I’d like to say there is a hope I wish there was a way but each day here feels like one closer to moving away Two jobs and school at night no end or relief in sight I forgot to invest what I never had and toil is the price of that life

You’ve Already Won Another night of no rest you carry despair in the lines of your face mornings come hard and deeply divided I’m up at first light, you keep missing sunrise How I long for you to heal but it doesn’t matter what I feel You’ve already won—the battle is over what you’re fighting for you’ve had all along there’s no way to win cause I’m on your side what you’re fighting for has been yours all along are you lost in the dark? Do you want to come out? I keep on pounding but you never answer I need you here, I need you free I swear I’m not going to let you hide from me How I long for you to heal but it doesn’t matter what I feel You have my word and I will stay as long as it takes for your night to end You have my word and I will stay as long as it takes for your night to end You have my word and I will stay as long as it takes for your night to end You’ve already won—the battle is over what you’re fighting for you’ve had all along there’s no way to win cause I’m on your side what you’re fighting for has been yours all along

A Safe Place 05:40
A safe place Come along with me Just don’t tell your brother I’m hoping we can see More and more of eachother I know a place where no light gets in We can hide from God there, we can hide from sin If you navigate by fear You always have an answer But certainty deceives and it grows like a cancer I know a place where no light gets in I go there to remember, I go to begin I’ll keep dreaming … while I can But why not dream while I have the chance? Hope still sings I believe Faith is all she asks of me The city holds its breath Waiting for the tremor The weeds are growing high Neighbors fear one another I know a place where no light gets in Where we can trust each other and rest as friends It’s not how close you get Its direction that matters I’ll keep facing you the rest of my winters In that place where no light gets in There’s a part of each of us that is safe within I’ll keep dreaming … while I can But why not dream while we have the chance? Hope still sings I believe Faith is all she asks of me Don’t give up There is a way Where there is life there is hope The body remembers what the mind forgets Where there is life there is hope
