Track Name: On My Way
On My Way

"Head To The Heart" is the name of the road
'Cross mountains, valleys, switchbacks, and stones
The longest of journeys that I've ever known
To take me, take me home

I walked for many-a-miles, many-a-days
Months became years, they asked me my age
I said, "I couldn't see what difference it makes
Once we reach, we reach home".

Off in the distance, there must be a place
Somewhere to find rest, some light on your face
She said, "I've always been open
So come through my gate."
I said, "Love, I'm on my way
I'm on my way".

I started to doubt that I might arrive
Sometimes I wandered and one time I cried
On the breast of a woman who paid a high price
To say "yes"
"Yes" to home

I asked her, "What does it feel like?"
"And how will I know?"
"How long must I wait?"
"Which way do I go?"
She said, "I've always been open
So come through my gate."
I said, "Love, I'm on my way
I'm on my way".

One day in the distance, a mountain did rise
But one that was different, it wore a disguise
I saw my destination for the first time
Yes, I saw it clearly, but not with my eyes

And when I arrived I met a young man
He showed me his heart
He showed me his hands
He wore a strange crown
Said it hurts where he stands, but "welcome
Welcome home".

I said, "Show me the table
I'm a traveling man
I'll eat every last crumb
I'll take all that I can
And she said, "I've always been open
So come through my gate."
I said, "Love, I'm on my way
I'm on my way".

So, "Head To The Heart" is the name of the road
'Cross mountains, valleys, switchbacks, and stones
The longest of journeys that I've ever known
To take me, take me home
Track Name: Lost At Sea
Lost At Sea

If you're on my horizon
Then babe I must be blind
'Cause when I need you most
You are so hard to find
The winds are raging
And the waves are laughing down on me
I never quite expected
To be out here lost at sea

Gonna tie myself to this one man sailboat
Believe me when I tell you that waters are still rising
Gonna bind myself to the Santa Maria
Looking for an open door
At the end of the world

When I set sail for freedom
I was taking a chance
The sun my only compass
My heart the only map
Now I'm barely treading water
And I feel I may be cursed
So why don't you come and claim me
Before this ocean claims me first?

Gonna tie myself to this one man sailboat
Believe me when I tell you that waters are still rising
Gonna bind myself to the Santa Maria
Looking for an open door
At the end of the world

And I'm still waiting...

I've got no destination
I'm just trying to stay afloat
And the only thing that keeps me
Is a distant light of hope
And Hope, I've seen her body
I've weighed her on a scale
She lives and breathes, makes conquest of me
And I've never seen her fail

Gonna tie myself to this one man sailboat
Believe me when I tell you that waters are still rising
Gonna find her, my Santa Maria
Standing by an open door
At the end of the world
Track Name: Heart Of Love
Heart Of Love

You said tomorrow, your sun may not rise
And all these worries stealing light from your eyes
But now we have this moment to dance
So c'mon, let's choose love while we still have the chance

Don't wear tomorrow like a coat full of holes
Afraid it may cover you, still leave you in the cold
Now we have the moment to dance
So c'mon, let's choose love while we still have the chance

Hold on to me
I'm right here for you
You don't have to walk alone
We could run hand in hand
Into the heart of love
The heart of love

Singing of love

I dare you to step out, I dare you to walk
Dare you to make yourself naked
To break down your walls
Now we have this moment to dance
So c'mon, let's choose love while we still have the chance

Hold on to me
I'm right here for you
You don't have to walk alone
We could run hand in hand
Into the heart of love
The heart of love
Taking all the time you have
Track Name: Love Song
Love Song

It starts with a crack in a heart that was made of stone
I thought it was dead, had been sleeping so all alone
What a mistake I have made
Drifted oh so far from you and from how it began

Love, I want to give myself away
And love, I want to receive you back in the same way
I make no sense on my own
We were meant for each other
This is love

I'd forgotten the part of my heart that could burn for someone
Happy surprise when I can't take my eyes from you
You are something sweet, surely have captured me
But I know I would stay anyway

Love, I want to give myself away
And love, i want to receive you back in the same way
I make no sense on my own
We were meant for each other
This is love

And I've been waiting on this day to come
So come on out, my sister

I put my hand to the latch of your garden, I wait for you
You push and you pull. I'm afraid. Your body's shaking too
This love must be whispered, it longs to reveal itself
We're lying beneath this heat
Track Name: Don't Be Long
Don't Be Long

When I climbed up my tower, looked down to the below
I listened with my heart, I recognized her notes
A melody was blazing, so ravenous and new
Like a thousand voices calling
Ten thousand words flowed into..

I've got this thirst I cannot fill
I've got this hunger I can't kill
I've been out searching, I still have not found
An answer I'm waiting on

So don't be long
Don't be long

I saw a woman smile, her message to me sent
I sold all my possessions to find out what she meant
Her mouth is always moving, silently echoing a hymn
She's standing on the sun, boy
She's asking me to swim

Don't be long
With a drop on my tongue
Don't be long

When my tongue is growing dusty and my mouth completely parched
The zealot sun relentless in the desert of my heart
I ask my lady for a storm cloud, pregnant with relief
When she begins to rain on me, I'll begin to drink
