Track Name: Reach
Reach

Reach for the skies
Would you deny its true?
All that you wanted
Didn’t come out to be
The way you thought it would

Whose fault is it?
When you look in the mirror
Is there someone else?
To point the finger at
All along you knew

Reach for the skies
Would you deny its true?
All that you wanted
Didn’t come out
To be the way
You thought it would

Tolerant of others bent
Understanding and lies
Bring flowers
A beauty begins
Without, within, begin
Walls that see the part

Reach for the skies
Would you deny its true?
All that you wanted
To be the way

Reach for the skies
Would you deny its true?
All that you wanted
To be the way
Didn’t come out
To be the way
You thought it would
Track Name: Victory!
Put on the truth
Put on your faith
Take up your sword and fight
Victory is assured
In the might of the Lord
It is good that we do as we should
Our hearts are pure
The overture of dreams
We cannot hide
Nor stem the tide of Victory

Victory is ours
Victory in the might of the Lord
In the might of the Lord

We are one breath away
From seeing the face of our God
We must fight the fear
Set aside the cares of our lives
They only serve our enemy
Our only concern is the battle ahead
The battle ahead
Our hearts are pure
The overture of dreams
We cannot hide
Or stem the tide of Victory

Victory is ours
Victory in the might of the Lord
In the might of the Lord
We take up our sword and fight

Victory!
Track Name: Adore You
Once my childlike ways
Stood in place of my faith
Your love came crashing through the gate
Of my heart in a humble state

With the power of an angels gaze
You loved me in spite of myself
Now I'm moving forward
The beauty of my fate
So beautiful

I need you longer
I only wonder

Shining bright as the sun
Now I see what I have won
Cast my gaze across the sea
There you are in front of me

As I'm moving forward
This open door has seen your light
Moving toward you in a straight line
Now I believe and I know what's right
Cannot deny I adore you, I adore you

I need you longer
I try to find
I only wonder

Repeat

Solo Guitar

Chorus
Track Name: Worthwhile
Oh here we are my circle of friends
We have come so far that
We have made some amends
To ourselves and one another
You know like sister to brother
Father to mother, lover to lover
The only way my friends

Come on and walk the extra mile
You don't have to live in denial my friends
I only want to see you smile again
One more time
You could be worthwhile
So worthwhile

We all need love from a heart that doesn't breed love
From a heart that doesn't bleed love
Every day every way yeah
Don't stand in line no, no findin' peace of mind
Can't take it anymore, why are you here now babe
Have you been before that you cannot steal
Yet another lonely day away, every way love
We all need love, every day love
From a heart that doesn't bleed

We're gonna need some higher power my friend
We have to face it baby the final hour
Walk the extra mile

Walk the extra mile
You don't have to live in denial my friend
I only want to see you smile again
One more time
You can be worthwhile
So worthwhile
Track Name: Winding Road
Early in the morning you came
Down the winding road
I saw your dust rising
From my window
Oh like a tumbleweeds roll
You're coming, two lights a glowing

Chorus:
There you go
Down the winding road
Oh my oh, you're the grapes of wrath
From a dust bowl

All I got is a song and a bottle of wine
Whoa the feeling is so strong
That I started to write this song
And all these things gone wrong

You took the old Chevy
Headed out across that prairie
You're on the winding road
Where the tumbleweeds roll

Vocal Round:

Chorus:
Track Name: The Chosen Ones
The Chosen Ones

A thin layer separates us
From life everlasting
One breath away
From the night of exasperating…

On the backs of the laboring few
The empire is built by the chosen ones

Man that’s a nasty wound you have
Why don’t we
Apply a little political salve
(Note: this is a statement, not a question)

Out of the clear blue sky
The diamonds fly
The orange specter
Of the lights collide
The purple mountains die
Beyond the starlight
Beyond the divide
Track Name: Under Heaven
Underneath the starry skies
We alone you and I all open
Lying on the sandy shore
Living like we adore all open
Yes my dear it's not a crime
Spending life for a time as who we are
Let's not forget, there's no regret

Read between the lies
Don't ignore the prize
That we have won so fair
There's guaranty in life
Under heaven

Still water seeks
The company we keep
Immortalize the ways
Of our destiny
From the wars in the street
To the highest mountain peak
A greater way is born
Sanctuary from the world
No regret, we are set
Under Heaven

I can never tire
Of the true desire
A willingness to take
The bold satisfaction
Under heaven

The still water seeks
The company we keep
We've cast the die
It's who we are
Under Heaven
Track Name: My People
In that place down New Orleans
All the faces
We watch them with you
We watch them together
We weep

Come on down and sit with me
All my people
We are one people
This goes out to my people
Share the days and the ways
That are down home Louisianna
Where the Storm and that old river
Winding downtown
That old river all around
See the faces down

All the peoples I see
And the faces I see
The fear of it flees, the spirit it flees
Oh my people how I love you
Down Louisianna
That ol river seen better days
My people seen better days
I tell you we gotta say
We gotta break out of this haze
To hold on through the night
In New Orleans

The spirit flees
It's gone unite!
New Orleans
Hurricane New Orleans

I watched that thing
Down New Orleans
Kill my people, hurt my people
Oh my people
Track Name: Mountains Of Joy
Come with me to the mountains of joy

There will be a thousand stories in your eyes
As we all can sympathize we cannot get along without you now
It's the end of the road have you found your gold
It's the end of the road
We can't get along without you now
In your eyes

Come with me to the mountains of joy
There will be a thousand stories
Cannot get along without you now
It's the end of the road have you found your gold
The azure mountains the topaz sky
Come with me to the mountains of joy

Come with me to the mountains of joy
There will be a thousand stories in your eyes
We all get along we all sympathize
Said I can't get along without you now
It's the end of the road have you found your gold
Come with me to the mountains of joy
Track Name: Fix Me
I'm reeling from my life this time
Acting on my feelings, I'm so unkind
Can't know myself, or care what you've seen
Are there any issues you might ignore

Can you fix me underneath the light
Restore me like I was before
Will you trip me, I'm falling to the floor
I know this time that you are mine
Broken Inside, barely alive

All my heart, only you were apart
Once beauty I would avoid
Won't you decide to fix me

Underneath the light, I'm broken
Showing all my desires inside
Would you trick me
Believing this is true
How can I share my life without you
As an outlaw whose time has come
How could I care about you
When I did not care about myself

All my heart, only you were apart
Once beauty I would avoid
Won't you decide to fix me

Underneath the light, I'm broken
Showing all my desires inside
Would you trick me
Believing this is true
How can I share my life without you
Track Name: We Are The Fools
In my dream you were there
We became one in a dance with the stars
As the vision begins
We no longer can pretend

Like so long ago
We are the fools
Oh it's so strong you know
Like heaven glow
The vision begins

We'll open our hearts
As wide as the sky
My lover for you
You know it's the way I feel
Gonna give it one more try

We have the chance
I'm not one to flee
Because love has gone past
I can be strong
We are not meant to be
All alone so empty
Trust must come
No more fantasy for me finally

Like so long ago
We are the fools in love
Like so long ago the fools, fools in love
We are the fools in love
Like so long ago, it's so strong you know

We'll open our hearts
As wide as the sky
My lover for you
Gonna give it one more try
As wide as the sky
