Track Name: Lost in the Day (feat. Ciera DeSilva & Alexandra "Xandra" Mason)
I’ll get lost in the day
Let the breeze take far me away
Where the tall grasses grow
The humming birds put on their show

I’ll get lost in the day
As the whispering palm trees sway
Sun shines down, eyes are closed
It’s a dark red warm glow

I’ll get lost in the day
Mother Nature got me a place to stay
I am no one out here
But I’m not alone, I feel you near

I’ll get lost in the day
As the moon finally finds her way
It’s goodnight moon, goodnight stars
Only the fireflies know who we are

...I'll get lost in the day
Track Name: To: Mom
Do you remember walking to the park?
A Minnesota day in February
Our boots would crunch through a spongy layer of snow
Twelve years ago life seemed so arbitrary

We were just two young kids who didn’t know
That all we had was so extraordinary
We didn’t know world outside our town
We took for granted for us the ordinary

Oh you never know
Tomorrow she might have to go
So here’s a song so you know
I love you, so

Inside our home awaits a loving mother
To kiss her son and her daughter on the cheek
We never worried about our absent fathers
Our mother gave us more than we could need

Oh you never know
Tomorrow she might have to go
So here’s a song so you know
I love you, so

We never needed more than what was offered
Maybe ‘cause it was all we’d ever known
Sometimes the best in life is only simple
A simple mother’s love in a small-town home

Oh you never know
Tomorrow she might have to go
So here’s a song so you know
I love you, so

I love you, so
Track Name: Open Road (feat. Alexandra "Xandra" Mason & Martin Shaw)
Seeing a thousand eyes, but no one that I know

Out on the open road, on the lonesome road


I’m far away,

From any hope of shade, and the sun her rays are wasting me away

Has she come here to stay?

This feeling in my heart, like an underlying fear I can’t explain

Seeing a thousand eyes, but no one that I know

Out on the open road, on the lonesome road

Can’t tell you where I’m from, or where I am to go

Out on the open road, on the lonesome road

These thoughts they weigh me down,

As the luggage on my back, stops me short, of making it somewhere
And my north star burnt out,

When I left that love behind, now I’m wandering blind to find myself again

Seeing a thousand eyes, but no one that I know

Out on the open road, on the lonesome road

Can’t tell you where I’m from, or where I am to go

Out on the open road, on the lonesome road

Look into the mirror, green eyes I used to know

Out on the open road, on the lonesome road

Yesterday was sure, but today I just don’t know 

Out on the open road, on the lonesome road
Track Name: Child's Eyes
Child’s eyes
Tears that make me cry
For she has no voice in this world

She has no home
Her mama left her alone
Her dad, he forgot about his girl

Looking down
With no one else around
She cries solemn tears in her room

Nowhere to go
No one else she knows

She learned from the young age the shattering sound
Of her own heart breaking all over the ground

She holds my hand
She’s probably my best friend
Most unselfish person I know

She’ll give you her heart
She’ll never leave your side

Despite all the people who’ve left her alone
With no one to love her and nowhere to go
She learned from the young age the shattering sound
Of her own heart breaking all over the ground
Track Name: Bats
I got bats in the walls that keep me up at night
I keep pounding, but they just won’t stop
I keep asking, but you just won’t stop

I got troubles on my mind that keep me up at night
About what I’m gonna do with my life
And how I’m gonna find you

When I can’t find myself
And from the stars you fell
They never told me it would be easy
To find the way by myself

I got bats in the walls that keep me up at night
They cause a lot of trouble in me
Forcing me to stay up late and

Think about my life
And all of the changes
But when I fall asleep
I know that everything will be okay

Right when I think that the problem’s gone
Maybe they run and hide
They start flapping their wings again
Keeping me up all night

When I can’t find myself
And from the stars you fell
They never told me it would be easy
To find the way by myself

I think about my life
And all the great times
And when I fall asleep
I know that everything will be okay
…tomorrow
Track Name: Trail Eyes
If Only this trail had eyes
The stories that it would tell
Discord and harmonize
A story it knows so well

If only this trail had eyes
Imagine what it had seen
The butterflies float on by
Weaving through the evergreens

If only this trail had eyes
To know what was before
Back to her first design
Pine combs and flowers on her floor

If only this trail had eyes
Watching our every step
The laughter and the cries
We won’t stop moving yet



…Maybe this trail has eyes
Track Name: When the Winds Grow Wild
I wanna sing ya songs
Down by the beach
I wanna build a fire
For just you and me

I wanna hear ya laugh
I wanna see ya smile
I wanna hold you close, babe
When the winds grow wild

When the winds grow wild

I wanna draw a smile on your face when you’re sad
And feel your love settle my soul when I’m mad
‘Cuz you’re the only one who really knows me this way
I wanna be with you , my love, for the rest of our days

When the winds grow wild
Track Name: The Sun Comes Out Today
I hope the sun comes out today
Feels like years when she’s away
Try she might, oh try she may
I hope the sun comes out today


I’d paint a smile on her face
If only I knew how to paint
If I could do just one thing today
I’d paint a smile on her face


I won’t let you go
Keep trying

So wind me up and watch me go
I’ll give to you my one man show
But she’s the only one I know
But, wind me up and watch me go


She is always on my mind
I only want to see her fly
But if the ground is lost, so is the sky
Well, she is always on my mind


I won’t let you go
Keep trying


I hope the sun comes out today
Feels like years when she’s away
Try she might, oh try she may
I hope the sun comes out today
Track Name: Not Alone (feat. Colin Scharff)
Time pass her by like an hour glass

Slowly losing days, they’re never coming back

She doesn’t know why it hurts like that

Hiding tears under her smiles and her laughs

Why does it have to hurt like that?

She feels she has to face it all alone

No matter where she goes it doesn’t feel like home

Now she feels she’s nowhere left to go

But still inside her heart there lives a little hope

Her heart will find a home

Not alone

This sweet young lady’s heart will find a home

She’ll open up and find she’s not alone

Now she can close her eyes at night

Not afraid of what she’s feeling deep inside
She’s never smiled so bright and wide

In the warmth of a morning sun she’s free to fly

She’s never felt so free to fly

Not alone

This sweet young lady’s heart will find a home

Not alone

This sweet young lady’s heart will find a home

She’ll open up and find she’s not alone
