Track Name: Empty Places
An old house
With floors and floor abound
The thing with empty places
They're rotting to waste

The creaking
Goes unnoticed by the passing crowd
The thing with empty places
They're waiting to fall

Make it rise again
Lift your sleeves, work mode on
Fill these lonely rooms
Lift your sleeves, make it home

A garden kept secret from the world
Still smells sweet
The thing with wild flowers
They're wasted unseen

Make it rise again
Lift your sleeves, work mode on
Fill these lonely rooms
Lift your sleeves make it home
Give it life again
Lift your sleeves, work mode on
Fill this lonely space
Lift your sleeves, make it home

I dare you, I dare you
I dare you to lift your sleeves
And make this your home
Make this your home
I dare you, I dare you
I dare you to make a home here
Sweet is the work you did, dear
Sweet is the work you did, oh
Track Name: Ask The Rain
I've said this before
On the cloudy day
Gray is a weight on my eyelids
Not running through the pelt today
Gray is a wall I'm not climbing

Easy to ignore with florescent help
Easier to swallow a gulp and say
"This time I won't ask the rain to go, go away"

Caged by freedom or the pursuit of
The sun casts a shadow
Before I hide under a cloud again
Gray is a shield for my skin

Easy to ignore with florescent help
Easier to swallow a gulp and say
"This time I won't ask the rain to go away
No, this time I won't ask the rain to go, go away"

I know I'll feel the warmth on my skin
If i just wait and let it sink in
I won't ask the rain to go away
Track Name: Wonder
Take a breath
On your way home
Stumble into comfort
Through a dark hole

Do you ever?
Do you ever wonder?

Stumble through forests
Will the wings unfurl
And gather up the smoke?

Do you ever?
Do you ever wonder?
Track Name: Hold Me
Hold me
I don't have the strength to carry my own bones
Release me
From the fears I've laid to build up all these walls

I know you'll see me through, I know

You're my guiding light
Catching the weight of my thoughts on your back
Your voice lifts me up out of the deep

You hear me
My words are never wasted on you, no
You're near me
When I'm most alone, you're here before I call

I know you'll see me through, I know

Time bends so easily in your hands
But I'm a willing subject to your best laid plans

I know you'll see me through, I know

You're my guiding light
Catching the weight of my thoughts on your back
Your voice lifts me up out of the deep

Out of the deep your light is surrounding me
Your voice lifts me up
Your voice lifts me up out of the deep
