Track Name: Love is Not Dead
Hey there pretty girl
looks like the world is at your back
sounds easier to run
than to take a step and fall through the cracks

can anyone really understand who I am?
A quiet soul with leftover love and nothing left to give

So when you are tempted to believe the lies in your head...
love, it doesn't walk alone
love is not dead

Hey there working man
looks like the world is in your hands
Common sense is your ally
and faith is your back up plan

Can anyone really understand who I am?
A quiet soul with leftover love and no reason left to live

So when you are tempted to believe the lies in your head
Won't you give them up? Let us take them instead
Love, it doesn't walk alone
No, love is not dead

Love is fully alive
In the heart of a God
who beats inside our chest
He's all there is when there's nothing left
He is our common bread
So come to the table, and be fed
be fed

When you are tempted to believe the lies in your head
won't you give them up? Let us take them instead
Love, it doesn't walk alone
No, love is not dead
Track Name: Jonah
You wake up slowly
You wake up slowly with your doubts
Wonder if the God you heard, loves you better than you love yourself
Doubt seems to chase you down, follows you ‘round
Like some big, dark, cloud
Won’t you go away?
Won’t you come again some other day?

Love you always follow me
You haunt me like a melody
Leave me, Leave me
When will you give up on me?
Don’t swallow me in sympathy
Leave me, Leave me

You wonder how you got here
Wonder why your back’s against the wall
Your mind’s made up, love isn’t worth the work
But you toss and turn
You toss and turn around your fears, how do you get out of here?
Won’t you go away?
Won’t you come again some other day?

Love you always follow me
You haunt me like a melody
Leave me, Leave me
When will you give up on me?
Don’t swallow me in sympathy
Leave me, Leave me

I’m waking up, I’m waking up
I’m waking up, to you

Love you always follow me
You haunt me like a melody
Leave me, Leave me
When will you give up on me?
Don’t swallow me in sympathy
Leave me, Leave me
Track Name: Little Bird
Little bird, talk to me
Upon my tear dropped shoulder
And tell me of the view from way up high

Sing your sweet melodies
Over my worry
And remind me that the sun does shine over me

My Father sees me, My Father loves me

Look at the flowers
And how they want for nothing
Aren’t they beautiful? Just beautiful and still

That’s how I want to feel
Facing the sky, soaking up the light
Soaking up the light

My Father sees me, My Father loves me
My Father sees me, My Father loves me

So do not worry
Do not fret
Do not wake up and forget
That He who made you, gave you life and breath
When it’s easy to worry
And draw back in fear
Look at this little bird and how He cares
How He cares

My Father sees me, My Father loves me
My Father sees my every need
My father takes care of me

Little bird, talk to me
Upon my tear-dropped shoulder
Remind me of my Father’s love
Track Name: My Sweetest Endeavor
Love shows up in the strangest of places
In all kinds of people, in all kinds of faces
When I met you, I knew you were mine
I knew it’d take time
Sweet precious time

To win you over again
I want to win you again

I love asking and seeking, working and believing in you
I want to love you forever
I love asking and seeking, working and believing in you
I want to love you forever
You are my sweetest endeavor

You’re a beautiful soul with a million doorways and you let me in
You give me your heart and I promise to keep it, I’ll hide it in my own

I want to win you again
Yes I want to win you again

I love asking and seeking, working and believing in you
I want to love you forever
I love asking and seeking, working and believing in you
I want to love you forever
You are my sweetest endeavor
Track Name: Strength You Need
Lay your head upon my chest
And let the whole world see
It’s not easy to admit
But child, you need me

So I’ll hold on to you
I promise not to leave
When you are weak
I am the strength you need

It’s funny how that goes
Your pride and then your fall
But I will not stop loving you
No child, with your warts and all

So I’ll hold on to you
I promise not to leave
When you are weak
I am the strength you need

Turn your eyes upon me, child
And the world will fall at bay
Do not listen to what they say
You don’t have what it takes
But I am perfect, I am perfect for you
Yes I am perfect, I am perfect through you

So I’ll hold on to you
I promise to never leave
When you are so weak
I am the strength you need
