Take It Home 04:29
Hoping to find myself in this mess A jumbled mind describes me best To lose my religion, to find my faith Is the method of self-discovery I will take I’m gonna take these thoughts Throw ‘em all away The road to find myself Is a road I never take Hoping to rise above this bitterness To live the kind of life that stands the test Of time and toil and my own broken heart I want to know the maker and his part I’m gonna take these thoughts Throw ‘em all away The road to find myself Is a road I never take Through this mess I still have hope That you’ll call me home

All our dreams are here to stay We live to fight another day Hands against the window pane The world sits still To grant our play The world sits still To grant our play Footprints soiled in the rug Welcomed home with a hug Your eyes are wide, my heart is full The world sits still To grant our play The world sits still To grant our play A simple life we live by choice My peace is brought on by your voice Two separate lives create a home The world sits still To grant our play The world sits still To grant our play

Quiet Town 03:08
I didn’t have to look long to find you Though the path went many different ways But darlin’ I’m so glad to know you Life will never be the same I grew up in a quiet town Quite a ways from you We met in a quiet town A ways from everybody we knew So we’ll live in a quiet town The way we all must do And when I die In a quiet town I’ll sleep right next to you I knew the minute that I saw you The way you took my breath away That I could never live without you Not one minute of the day I grew up in a quiet town Quite a ways from you We met in a quiet town A ways from everybody we knew So we’ll live in a quiet town The way we all must do And when I die In a quiet town I’ll sleep right next to you And when I die In a quiet town I’ll sleep right next to you I’ll sleep right next to you

The sun went down before we knew And all at once we lost our way We threw punches in the dark Fighting for the light of day And in the end the sun came up to find us gasping Each one scared to face the damage that he’d done It’s hard to say I’m moving on When every step is a reminder Of how we turned upon ourselves And how we crumbled under pressure Before the end I want to learn to keep my cool I wont survive another friendly firefight I don’t understand these weapons in my hand They used to be words so easily heard Now I can’t hear you for the noise I don’t understand these weapons in my hand They used to be words so easily heard Now I can’t hear you for the noise Now I can’t hear you for the noise

Hope Lake 05:26
Put me on a train Toward the Great Divide I’m gonna head out west And sleep amongst the pines Back to the land I love Where my grandfather worked his trade To build a home for us And make his mother proud I know Take me down the trail To a town filled with ghosts We’ll climb into the trees And set up our post This is the land we love Where our house lies above a lake The memories that we’ve made Will forever be ingrained I know The songs we sing out there Words of hope Of souls laid bare We’ll find peace somewhere With trouble on our heels And our minds in the air Up the mountain we go To the lake of great hope With our children on our backs We’ll scale the western slope Up the mountain we go To the lake of great hope With our children on our backs We’ll scale the western slope The songs we sing out there Words of hope Of souls laid bare We’ll find peace somewhere With trouble on our heels And our minds in the air

Idle Hands 04:42
Give me time To make you mine I need hope to stay alive Are there fires between the lines Or are you only marking time Cause we’re not made to be alone Wasted, waiting by the phone Waiting for each others call Cause you and I have idle hands And the devil’s making plans Feel the axe about to fall Fear has turned your heart to stone A statue on a pedestal Do you think you know the end Two broken hearts too cracked to mend Cause we’re not made to be alone Wasted, waiting by the phone Waiting for a call from you Cause you and I have idle hands And the devil’s making plans He’s got a wicked follow through Fear has turned your heart to stone A statue on a pedestal Do you think you know the end Two broken hearts too cracked to mend Cause we’re not made to be alone Wasted, waiting by the phone Waiting for each others call You and I have idle hands And the devil’s making plans Feel the axe about to fall

Push On 03:52
Wake up Sing for your supper and take up The task that is yours for the taking Do what you were born to do Love it No time for the pushing and shoving Life will rush on and you’ll stand there Withered by winter winds Push on, push on My friend To the end Push on, push on My friend To the warmth around the bend Maybe we’d all sleep like sweet little babies If we’d only lay down our maybes And try for a yes or two I know I’ve been kicked around And it’s so hard to leave it behind and get mobile But maybe that’s just how we heal Push on, push on My friend To the end Push on, push on My friend To the warmth around the bend Push on, push on My friend To the end Push on, push on My friend To the warmth around the bend

It’s safe to say I am home Grain fields and farm houses glitter like gold Listening I hear the song Calling me somewhere I used to belong Home sweet home Takes the shape that your heart takes too Home sweet home Is changing slow Like the grass growing under my feet I spent some time in the south I lost my mind when my heart sold it out Scenery started to change And I felt my heart had moved up to the plains Home sweet home Takes the shape that your heart takes too Home sweet home Is changing slow Like the grass growing under my feet I won’t go back to where I’m thinking of My heart is a hand inside a well fitted glove Home is in the heart as well as the blood It’s safe to say I am home Grain fields and farm houses never grow old Listening I hear the wind Singing the song of the place I call home
