Track Name: Raven's Wings
What if I was the ocean,
would you be my sun?
If the valleys turned to mountains
would you recognize the one?

Reach up your hands to the sky
I’ll cover you with a melody to help you fly
I’m searching for one thing that keeps me alive
To lift my spirit like a raven’s wings
I can always dream.

Break my heart wide open
To let in the surprise
for all of life is worth crying for - crying for

All of life is worth crying for
And all of life is worth dying for.

Are dreams meant to be forever,
or are they merely passing by?
I just can’t believe what’s before my eyes.

All of life is worth crying for
And all of life is worth a fight, is worth a fight

May we melt into the ocean
May we melt into the sky
May we become one another
Like a raven’s wings
I can always dream.
Track Name: Along the Road
Along the road
In the litter and the gold lines
I left a tear for what’s not mine to keep
Soon I will be
Traveling onward, and in time
I’ll forget to cry for what’s behind me

Before too long
We’ll write our song
And if the road leads us through places
too tall for words,
Maybe in time
You will see why.
Oh yes in time, you will see why.

Day by day
As the nights turn to fire
The age of our desires bloom.
Nothing you say
Could ever take away our time
In our footprints we leave behind a trace.

Oh what is love? I felt it strong
and if the road leads us through places
too small for words,
There’s no telling what we’ll know
But it’ll take us where we need to go
Take us where we need to go.

Once and for all
I give you this heart
stitched by the leather hands
of yesterdays and dreams gone by
Maybe in time - we will see why
Oh yes in time - we will see why

Do you believe in something
That just gets better with time?
Track Name: Luna
As she sets, she turns the night to diamond baths
To light up the sky
As she slips below the line,
She turns into the one beacon of the light

She know how to let the world slip through her fingers
She knows how to make the world slip through her hands
Like grains of sand

Oh, oh, oh, oh - She turns the night to light like diamonds in the sky
Oh, oh, oh, oh - She shows us how to pass with grace through the night
Oh, oh, oh, oh - Show us how to turn up our light
Oh, oh, oh, oh - Show us the way to pass through the night

Find our wings of night
Lighting up the sky
Show us how to shine
Graceful through the night
Show us how to shine
Show us how to carry the light
Show us to be wise
Like beacons of the night

How long, how bright, how long you shine
How long, how bright, how long you shine
How long, how bright, how long you shine
Track Name: Sister
Sister, oh sister of mine
What have we started this time?
Sister, oh sister
What have we come to this time?

Sister, oh my sister, oh my sister
Sister, oh my sister, oh my sister

Sister, where have you been?
Sister, where are you now?
Sister, where have you been?
Sister where are you now?

We have come to finish what we started
We have come to make amends
We have come to finish what we started
We have come to begin again.

Sister, oh my sister, oh my sister
Sister, oh my sister, oh my sister

Sister, where have you been?
Sister, where are you now?
Sister, where have you been?
Sister where are you now?
REPEAT
Track Name: Potent Truth
The truth is potent
It’s in your blood
We’re cutting cords to all the lies
We are preparing our way to fly

Alleycat at night
watching with wise eyes
She’s the wild one
she always knows
she always knows

Glistening like sunlight
across the valley skies
can we open our eyes as wide as our minds are
we are immeasurable (surprise)

can you feel it in your bones?
feel it in your bones? (x3)

The truth is yours to give
The truth is yours to live
The truth is yours to share
The truth is all there is.

The truth is yours to bear
The truth is yours to have
The truth is yours
The truth is yours
The truth is all there is.
Track Name: Winds of Change
We are carried by the winds of change
Let the ocean wash away your pain
We are carried by the winds of change
and all these living things (of dreams)
(Repeat)

What’s in the moment
of breaking down?
I could tell you stories
I could tell you stories
of being lost and how I was found, and
I saw a glimmer of light
before the moonrise
before the moon rose high
It came clear as a sign to say
that you don’t have to be afraid, no
You don’t have to be afraid

We are carried by the winds of change
Let the ocean wash away your pain
We are carried by the winds of change
and all these living things (will lead us to…)
(Repeat)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Oh, we learn to dance with the change
Yearn, we yearn to dance in the rain
Ooh, we burn to hold the pain
Ooh, we learn to dance in the rain
Yeah

We are carried by the winds of change
Let the ocean wash away your pain
We are carried by the winds of change
and all these living things of dreams

We are carried by the winds of change
Let the ocean wash away your pain
We are carried by the winds of change
And all these living things will lead us to
Our dreams.
