Track Name: A Second Too Late
You walk in the room
With your heart in your hands
And you sing me a tune
That I understand
Well everything looked so beautiful
When you were mine in my mind

But you're a second too late baby
Everything takes time
These plans that I've made lately
Mean nothing if your heart's not ready for mine

Oh..(A second too late)

In a second with you
I made a lifetime of plans
And it was looking good too
Now I understand
How everything looked so beautiful
When you were mine in my mind

These plans that I've made lately
Mean nothing...
Track Name: Oceanside
Drifting back into dreaming
Sick of sleeping, just breathing
Need to taste the ocean before I drown
You and I in your driveway
Tears in your eyes but we can't stay
There's a life outside this town
Yeah

So we'll run away
To the oceanside
This is our escape
From the day to day
And our days will end right where they begin
With the two of us slowly sinking in
And we'll run away
To the oceanside

Sea's like candy in your kiss
Tastes like freedom on your lips
Need to soak in this moment before we're found
Yeah

This feeling won't subside, yeah
Til' I'm in that ocean's tide
Track Name: Comin' Home
My home is not where I lay my head
It's a place without walls buried deep within my chest
It's underneath the open skies on a February western wind
But I still can't find my rest
Well, trials of every kind find me here
Even in my sacred space I'm overcome with fear
But I'm clinging to that day I know you'll wipe away my tears
Cause I'm comin' home to you

I'm comin' home to you
You'll be that place I'm always running to
I'm comin' home to you
My love I'm comin' home to you

I was walking on that long road home
On a stretch without signs, I was wondering alone
But you came and took my hand and all the sudden I was safe at home
Cause I'm home when I'm with you

Safe inside your arms
Is where I want to be
I'm comin' home real soon
You'll see
You'll see

That I'm comin' home to you
You'll be that place I'm always running to
Track Name: She Still Shines
Dancing, shimmering, like sun on the water
She spins with arms held high
No one can stop her
Free as a child, her God as her shield
Her faith is the only sword she would wield

And her laughter cures sadness
Her smile keeps you warm
But when darkness surrounds you and the day turns to night
Her love is the wonder that sings you to life
Singing
Ah, ah, ah

Off in the distance, city lights shine
But I've got something brighter than the stars in the sky
'Cause she is my light
And she makes me smile
Yeah

Her laughter cures sadness
Her smile keeps you warm
But when darkness surrounds you and the day turns to night
Her love is the wonder that sings you to life
Singing
Ah, ah, ah

And don't you hide your light
'Cause it brightens up my sky
And as the sun goes down on this day of mine
She still shines
Yeah

Her laughter cures sadness
Her smile keeps you warm
But when darkness surrounds you and the day turns to night
Her love is the wonder that sings you to life
Singing
Ah, ah, ah
Track Name: Shape You
You're a blank page
Just waiting on some lines
To trace some kind of shape
You're a ball of clay
Just waiting to be made
Into a useful thing

I'll sketch you out a brand new life
You won't even recognize your name
With careful hands I'll carve away
Your life will start to take shape

And I'll shape you, and you'll shape me too
I'll mold you, and we'll feel like new

You're a child on hands and knees
Just waiting on the day
You find your feet
You're a seed on the barren ground
Just waiting on some rain
To break through the clouds

Ooh...Oh...

You'll sketch me out a brand new life
I won't even recognize my name
With steady hands you'll show me frame by frame
Our life will start to take shape
