Track Name: Time is On Our Side
Time is on our side
When I’m with you I feel free
No more chains are holding me
You and I will fly
To a place where we will be
So in love for all eternity
As we were always meant to be

There’s a place I know
If you’re ready we can go
We’ll take it fast or we’ll take it slow
You and I will be
As the tide is to the sea
So in love for all eternity
As we were always meant to be

Bridge

If you’re ready we can go
We’ll journey on the wind
A journey without end
We’ll leave the world behind us
Where no one can find us
Track Name: Sometimes Love
Sometimes music
Sometimes singing
Sometimes quiet
Sometimes love

Sometimes cool breeze
Sometimes daisies
Sometimes save me
Sometimes love

You wanna know what puts my head in the clouds
You’ve got to know what puts my feet back on the ground
I only know that what I’m feeling right now
Is what your heart has said out loud

Sometimes cheer me
Sometimes hear me
Sometimes near me
Sometimes love

Sometimes daydream
Sometimes carefree
Sometimes safety
Sometimes love
Track Name: See It Always
I really don’t know what it is
That you see when you look at me
But I hope you see it always
I really don’t know what it is
That you see when you look at me
But I hope you like it
The way that you feel
I can hardly believe that it’s real
But if you feel like I feel
Feel it always
(Repeat)

BRIDGE

If seeing is believing
Then I hope you’ll be receiving
What I feel
And my hope is that you’ll notice
That I’m hopelessly devoted
And it’s real
I’m throwing open my heart today
And I’m hoping you will stay

Out Chorus

The way that you feel
I can hardly believe that it’s real
But if you feel like I feel
Feel it always
Track Name: Naive
Maybe I’m naïve, but I think you’re lovely
Maybe you will say you love me too
Look into my eyes, you’ll see what I see
Look into my heart, you’ll feel it too

‘Cause when I look at you
I see it in your eyes
Hearing a voice so true
My heart has realized
That you’re lovely
And that’s all I need to know
Track Name: Beautiful Sun
Verse

This is a beautiful sun
Shining for the only one
Who matters in my life
This is a beautiful day
I know there ain’t no way
I’m letting you out of my sight

Chorus

And you can shine on me today
And tomorrow
For in autumn’s glow
There is no trace of pain
Or of sorrow
And when I feel winter’s sting in my eye
I’ll recall the joy
That you brought to my life
Thank you for this day
Thank you for this sun

Bridge

I want to spend my life loving you
I want to spend my life loving you
There’s nobody else that will do
I want to spend my life loving you
Thank you for this day
Thank you for this sun
Track Name: The Morning Sun
Prechorus
Grateful, grateful, grateful…

Chorus 1

Thankful for you and me and the air I breathe
Songs to sing, and a new reality
Summer’s day and autumn’s night
And every battle won
And the morning sun, ooo, the morning sun
And the morning sun

Chorus 2

Thankful for time to smile and remember when
Here and now, and there and then
Grace to hope and try again
When the time is come
And the morning sun, ooo, the morning sun
And the morning sun

Chorus 3

Thankful for joy in tears and peace through fears
Strength renewed with each passing year
Knowing love is always near
When the day is done
And the morning sun, ooo, the morning sun
And the morning sun, ooo, the morning sun
And the morning sun
Track Name: Giants
Chorus 1

And I will stand and face the wind
And I will find a way to live
And I will walk this road alone
And I will use this single stone
‘Til the giants in my life come falling down
‘Til the giants in my life come falling down

Chorus 2

I am engaged with forces great
Though I know not how high the stakes
And I will make this journey home
And I will use this single stone
‘Til the giants in my life come falling down
‘Til the giants in my life come falling down

Bridge

And we’ll stand amazed at what we see
When the cause is not defeat, but victory
And all who gather there will know
That here lies a mighty foe

Chorus 3

We do not leave this battlefield
With no regard with that which heals
But we do make this cause our own
If all we have is just a stone
To make these giants in our lives come falling down
To make these giants in our lives come falling down
Track Name: Waiting for the Sun
Chorus

I could cry salty tears
For a day
But it wouldn’t matter anyway
Dreaming of days gone by
Days to come
Up ‘til midnight waiting for the sun

Verse 1

Paving roads of gold
Seldom leads to wealth untold
Often will arise
Separate but unequal lives

Verse 2

Frozen candlelight
Burning midnight oil so bright
It will be alright
Shepherds watch their flock by night

Vamp

Sun will rise, or so they say
To reveal a brighter day
Summer snow or winter rain
Through the night you lead the way
Track Name: Sun, See Through Me
Sun, see through me
See what I cannot see
See what I’m meant to be
Rain, drench my heart
Showing me where to start
Destiny to impart

Let the sun wash away
All the grief and decay
That would stand in the way
Of my pure love
Let the joy of this day
Send a breeze through this place
And dispel every trace of the old love
Of the old love
Track Name: Over the Rainbow
Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Once in a lullaby
Somewhere over the rainbow
Blue birds fly
And the dreams that you dreamed of
Dreams really do come true ooh oh
Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me
Oh, somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to,
Oh why, oh why can't I?
Well I see trees of green and red roses too,
I'll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Well I see skies of blue
And I see clouds of white
And the brightness of day
I like the dark
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world
The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people passing by
I see friends shaking hands
Singing, "How do you do?"
They're really singing, "I, I love you."
I hear babies cry and I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more than we'll know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world world
Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me
Oh, somewhere over the rainbow way up high
And the dream that you dare to, why oh, why can't I?
Track Name: The Sun Suite (See You In the Sun)
Though we’re far away, you know that every night I pray
I’ll see you in the sun one day
And with each passing day, my hope grows brighter and I say
I’ll see you in the sun one day, one day
I’ll see you in the sun one day

Separation comes but once in a lifetime
Elevation happens just at the right time

And the walls that try to separate us now, now
Will be washed away before the sun goes down, down
We will conquer all that’s standing in our way, way
And I will see you in the perfect light of day, day
I’ll be with you to stay, stay
Track Name: The Nearness of You
It's not the pale moon that excites me
That thrills and delights me
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you
It isn't your sweet conversation
That brings this sensation
Oh no, it's just the nearness of you
When you're in my arms
And I feel you so close to me
All my wildest dreams came true
I need no soft lights to enchant me
If you will only grant me
The right to hold you ever so tight
And to feel in the night
The nearness of you
