Track Name: Feelings Never Felt Before
Every rainbow's satin sheen, every rainbow's satin sheen

Some things are hard to take, this heartache
You had it all worked out
Now it's over

Some things are hard to fake, lying wide awake
It's so hard to understand
Why it's over

Do you know where they come from?
An invisible sun
Do you know where they come from?
An invisible sun
That never sets on anyone

A light you've never seen
Fills a place you've never been
Every rainbow's satin sheen

A light you've never seen
Fills a place you've never been
Every rainbow's satin sheen
Every rainbow's satin sheen
Every rainbow's satin sheen
Is here again.

Do you know where they come from?
An invisible sun
Do you know where they come from?
An invisible sun
That never sets on anyone.
Track Name: Rescue
Someone to rescue you
Someone to rescue you
Someone to rescue you

It's dark where you've been
It's hard what you've seen

By yourself by a single light
Still up though it's way past two
The sounds of parties ripple by
Cars and fighting too
Night is sliding through
Nailing into you

Someone to rescue you
Someone to rescue you
Someone to rescue you

It's dark where you've been
(It's still got a hold on you)
It's hard what you've seen
(It's still got a hold on you)

You've fallen down inside yourself
You didn't expect to
But run your years back to front
Something's driving you
See the multitude
As they cry with you

But surely someone will draw near
To show you the way out of here
Someone will surely rescue you
Someone will rescue you.
Track Name: Love Is Everywhere
I don't want to run
I want to kneel
I don't want to fight
I want to yield
I don't want to shout
But I want you to hear

So you must drive me away
You don't need what I've got to give anyway
The door is open, there's wind in your hair
Look at the past, you have left me wanting there
But there is a future where love is everywhere

I don't want to hide
I want to reveal
A secret inside
A place you can heal
I don't want to beg
Do you want me to steal?

So you must drive me away
You don't need what I've got to give anyway
The door is open, there's wind in your hair
Look at the past, you have left me wanting there
But there is a future where love is everywhere

No more sleepless nights
Stranded near your hands
No more building castles
On your shifting sands

Our cries are fading away
The tide that swept in is now pulling away
The door is open, there's wind in your hair
Look at the past, you have left me wanting there
But there is a future where love is everywhere.
Track Name: Sunlight on the Snow
I dreamt that I was lost
I was stumbling up a road
And all around me
Was sunlight on the snow

There's a photo in my pocket
It was someone I didn't know
The trees were bent in whispering
It was many years ago

You touched my heart
Like a breath on glass
I clouded over with desire

It seemed that
All I ever wanted
The answer
Was the touch of your hands

I saw a dark horizon
Where you saw sun on snow
A second sight had always bent
My eyes through shadows

I felt proud and I felt strong
I told it in a song
And hoped the echoes could repair
The hurting I had done

I dreamt that I was lost
I was stumbling up a road
And all around me
There was sunlight on the snow

There's a photo in my wallet
It was someone I didn't know
The trees were bent in whispering
It was time for me to go
Track Name: Lot to Learn
You think a woman's love is cheap
You think a woman like me
Comes around every week
Well

You've got a lot to learn
A lot to learn
Lucky
You've got time on your side
Time to burn

You don't miss me
When the sun goes down
You don't remember
How you were lost
And I found you
Well

You've got a lot to learn
A lot to learn
Lucky
You've got time on your side
Time to burn

They say people don't change
But I had to
I won't sacrifice, I won't sacrifice
Like I did for you

The gold you mined
Like it was nickels and dimes
You won't be so rich
You'll never be so rich
And I will never be so poor
Ever again
Track Name: Road to Freedom
My lover used to say mean things to me
He's sober up and say I'm sorry
But nothing ever really changed
Pride and anger were his ball and chain
But I'm on the road to freedom and I'm not going back

I had a job, I was doing 9 to 5
To pay the bills, just to survive
Every day I sighed inside
Man it felt like I was doing time
But I'm on the road to freedom and I'm not going back

The old grim reaper came a'calling you see
The old grim reaper aimed his sickle at me
I said I'm not going this time
Some things I gotta do with my life
Gotta get on the road to freedom and never go back

People, it's the 11th hour
We gotta wake up, gotta feel our power
Free the earth from the for sale sign
Free our minds from the fear inside
Brother, sister we ain't going back

On the road the freedom
Pride and anger are your ball and chain
On the road to freedom
Man it feels like you are doing time
On the road to freedom
There's something you gotta do with your life
You gotta get on the road to freedom
And never go back
