Track Name: The Only Thing I Need
The only thing I need
is right inside of me
and I’ll follow it anywhere it leads
nothing can take my heart from me

I was afraid of what I would become
I was afraid of what had not been done
But you came through
Made me feel like I knew, it’s not too late
when my one life’s at stake

I was alone and carried far from home
and I was lost but knew it’s all a part
of how I’d grow, and when it’s time to go
Be bold, you’ll know
and sing

They’ll try to beat you - be careful, look out
They’ll try to rob you and fill you with doubt
They’ll try to hurt you and drag you right down
because nothing’s so evil as hate for yourself
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes it feels like you forgot about what we had
Makes me so angry that I let you hurt me so bad
Sometimes it feels like you left me here all by myself
You had to go, had to escape, to leave, just get out

Well sometimes I cry, but sometimes I smile

Sometimes I don’t understand why it didn’t work out
I stayed by your side for months at a time
while you let me down
and sometimes I think back on all of the things that you did
but it couldn’t kill me and I know I’m better for it

Well sometimes I cry, but sometimes I smile

I watched you change, I watched you grow
and after all we went through you still let me go
Track Name: Ghost
My thoughts are getting stuck in between
a dream and reality
can you even see me?

Now there’s a ghost in my head
You had to go, you said
Leave me alone, now what’s left
Now there’s a ghost in my head

I’ve broken down all the walls
Now I can see what’s really going on underneath
Don’t you try to hide from me
Oh, you’ll never hide from me

Whatever appears in your realm
that you try to put underground,
unless you exalt the truth,
will come back to haunt you
Track Name: Everyday
Take it from me, I can’t explain what is happening
But why shouldn’t I smile?
Time will claim all of us after a while
Don’t want to waste away, I’ll give it my everything everyday
but when it gets hard, I know I’ve got to remember

No, I can’t complain
God’s given me so many different ways
to express myself
I know that I’ll never go without
anything I need
what I can imagine is in reach
Never want to leave
I’ll be here waiting ’til you call me
Everyday is a good day
Everyday I am lucky
No, I can’t complain

Take it away, this gift of responsibility
It’s a weight to bare
I know that at times it seems unfair
it wasn’t made for you, it’s something that we all belong to
so take the long way home, and always remember
Track Name: My Own Worst Enemy
Oh, where do I start
exploring the vast corners of my heart?
I’m in disarray, everything that I think and say
And where do I begin
figuring out what is happening,
Can I trust myself
Hand my heart over to someone else

Oh, because
sometimes I can be my own worst enemy
and it gets dark inside
but I know I’m wasting each breath that I’m taking
when I’m not chasing the light
How do I know if the way that I’m going is wrong or right
All I can do is keep hunting the truth
and hope that I find it tonight

Oh, when do I leave
something that not longer serves me
Can I cut the chord?
Jump out of the pan to a brave new world
And when will it end?
There’s no way to know and I can’t pretend
that it don’t scare me
All I can do is be glad to breathe
