Everything's Fine By Jamie Drake I've been thinkin' bout the past How it seems like nothin ever lasts All the moments and the memories in my brain Spin around to the beginning just the same You and I were like a song By the bridge we knew that it was wrong By the time we had become a throwaway We’d spent precious years rewriting shades of grey Chorus But I’m not gonna say it; “it’s over” Let’s hold on for a while Give it time, give me a minute Maybe tomorrow we’ll find Everything’s Fine Should’ve known it’d never last Sinking ships all have a torn up mast But the comforts of tradition and routine Were holding us together at the seams Is there a reason to the rhyme? Seegar said the seasons have their time I suppose we’ll never know the purpose of All the moments that we spend on human love Chorus But I’m not gonna say it; “it’s over” Let’s hold on for a while Give it time, give me a minute Maybe tomorrow we’ll find Everything’s Fine

Redwood Tree 02:50
Redwood Tree Fingers moving in a certain pattern Strings with notes to hammer out the beat Get a pen and a piece of paper Get a load of that mahogany Making eyes and making guitar lines Anticipation building; all is good You can almost hear the notes just falling Reverberating through that old rosewood Chorus Kinda like just swinging our music Kinda like we’re dancing in the breeze Kinda want to stay here forever Kinda like a big redwood tree Fallin and callin fallin callin forever We’re like a song that ends in major key I know we’ve said the words inside our minds but When does it become reality? Chorus Kinda like just swinging our music Kinda like we’re dancing in the breeze Kinda want to stay here forever Kinda like a big redwood tree

Oh Well Oh Well Shadow’s just a’ creepin’ by in my mind’s eye Wondering how I ever felt so pure Never felt I’d ever need another door Phantom of the daylight, use to bring me life Wondering how I never felt so insecure Never felt I’d ever need another door Chorus Daylight’s wasting away Sunset’s taking me today Oh well oh well oh well oh well Oh well oh well, I’m gonna be ok Simple savior waving bye in my mind’s eye Wishing for that sweet design, everlasting and evermore Everything you’d ever want behind the door But it’s the phantom of the daylight, use to bring me life Wondering how I never felt so insecure Never felt I’d ever need another door Daylight’s wasting away Sunset’s taking me today Cross my heart and hope and pray Sunset’s demanding me to stay Oh well oh well oh well oh well…. Oh well oh well, gonna be ok

Make A Spark 03:41
Make A Spark Why does it hurt so much to decide to be happy? Sheltered heart and shell-shocked mind makes it difficult to unwind I am hiding in the dark and I’m afraid to make a spark How can I make a work of art if I’m a coward with my heart? Made my bed when I finally said that it’s over What I didn’t know is that life would be so damn hard These lights go out when the fear and the doubt overtake me Losing sight of your own heart is impossible to disregard I am lying in the dark and I’m afraid I’ll make a spark How can I make a work of art if I’m a coward with my heart? I’ve been wrong before I don’t want to be wrong again I guess I am keeping score What’s a girl to do? Father time will win again Is this the end? I am hiding in the dark and I’m afraid I’ll make a spark But there’s a fire in my heart I’m crying in the dark I just want to make a spark How can I be a work of art if I’m a coward with my heart?

When The Tide Comes In When the tide comes in It’s an ocean sigh Sun and moon align And the ties bind us here together When the tide is high Life is washed ashore Leaves you wanting more The day repeats the day before Everything’s pulled, it’s gravitational Everything’s forced, cuz it’s centripetal You and I are bound together by a force And the Earth is spinning on its course Everybody’s looking for the source So let’s have a little grace, when the tide comes in When the tide is low There’s an undertow And it takes its toll You gotta learn to go with the flow Everything’s pulled, it’s gravitational Everything’s forced, it’s centripetal Everything’s pulled, it’s gravitational Everything’s forced, cause it’s centripetal You and I are bound together by a force And the Earth is spinning on its course Everybody’s looking for the Everybody’s looking for the source So let’s have a little grace Because we’re all spinning in this race It doesn’t matter if you’re first place When the tide comes in

To My Love 04:37
To My Love I know I’ve been a little scared Cuz’ when I met you I was unprepared I was a bird in a cage Who did not know her place So when it seems the sky will fall I’ll pack my bags and put up walls And if what we have is real You know you can always appeal To my love To my heart Running away When it’s afraid Of your love Of your heart Running away If I’m to blame We fly together to the sun We make our music and we have our fun Sometimes we do disagree But you know that you can still count on me Cuz things are different than before And time has opened for us many doors And even though things will change You know that there will always be a way To my love To my heart Running away When it’s afraid Of your love Of your heart Running away If I’m to blame

Wonder 02:07
Wonder Well it was dark and then you spoke and your voice created light My tiny hands were being formed as I floated through the night And I floated through the night Chorus Guess I better have a little bit of hope; I wonder What I will become if I no longer have a wonder There’ll never be another me, I can surely count on that What can I be? What will I be? All depends on what I let All depends on what I let Chorus Guess I better have a little bit of hope; I wonder What I will become if I no longer have a wonder I looked around, and then I found every gift you gave to me What can I give? What can I give? What can I give to thee?

Blue 03:08
Blue When you’re blue All the colors are just one And no part of you feels like having fun And the sky turns from blue to grey So no part of you feels like you’re ok You can wish and hope and pray for someone To come along and save the day Isn’t that what Jesus came to do now? I don’t know what to do with that So just hide in a corner or a cave And try to turn your mind into your slave And just listen to all of those self helpless books Look in the mirror and compliment your good looks Because you can wish and hope and pray for someone To come along and save the day Isn’t that what Jesus came to do now? I don’t know what to do with that Because you can wish and hope and pray for someone To come along and take the blame Isn’t that what Jesus came to do now? I don’t know what to do with that

Allison 03:17
Allison Allison, for heaven’s sake Say goodnight And when you wake Make the day What you want it to be Allison, what’s on your mind? I hope only happy thoughts For when you rise You could cause a surprise And when you wake Make the day What you want it to be We make our way We break ou way We fake our way, possibly With a little faith Positive brainwave Goes a long long way Try and see We make our way We break our way And we fake our way, possibly With a little faith Positive brainwave Goes a long long way Try and see Try and see Try and see Allison, we can’t wait For you to make our day
