Track Name: Quest
Lace 'em up and get your sweet shoes out onto the floor.
Loosen up as some other ones gather in a swarm.
Think what you'll say when you tell your story.
You were out on a quest to define your glory.
But you're left with empty pockets and frozen to the bone.

Helmet on, twist the throttle wide open and you're gone.
Round the curve, drop a gear, machine ready to burn.
Think what you'll say when you tell your story.
'Bout the quest you were on to define your glory.
But instead being left tearing leather on the stone.

Now eight miles out.
In another town.
With a heart that's ready to explode.
Checking fear at the door.
Turning left to explore.
With a heart that's ready to explode.

Take a breath, brush your hands, take a step to the side.
Look ahead, get your focus on, visualize.
Think what you'll say when you tell your story.
'Bout the quest you were on to define your glory.
Let the taste be the thing pushing you to decide.
Track Name: Lit Like A Star
The great thrill of heart wide open
On top of a cliff and staring down,
New light where the clouds have broken,
the ripples become waves, and I leave the ground

And now that the storm is through,
We’ll see what our hands can do
You fall down and I’ll fall too,
I’ll fall with you,
And then...

We looked to the sky, and you gave me your hand,
Our hearts racing fast, we took off and ran,
All through the night, I know not how far,
But I’ve seen you in love, and I know who you are

Carried off by a wind out of somewhere,
Our eyes meet and we know, that it’s time to go
and there’s only one way we’ll get there,
We step into the light, and close the door

And now that the world is new,
We’ll see what our hands can do
You fall down and I’ll fall too,
I’ll fall with you,
And then...

We looked to the sky, and you gave me your hand,
Our hearts racing fast, we took off and ran,
All through the night, I know not how far,
But I’ve seen you in love, and I know who you are

We finally collapsed in a place we could hide,
You had the face of a child, and the heart of a bride,
And all in a moment you were lit like a star,
Now I’ve seen you in love and I know who you are
Track Name: Twisted
I don’t wanna be bigger faster
You can have the airbrush
The centerfold, the ab machine
It’s twisted

You can call me see through or Casper
I don’t want the spray tan
The beach body, stop asking me
It’s twisted

It’s twisted

I don’t wanna wait
I want it now

Give me my opinion newscaster
I don’t want to do the hard work
So please decide for me
It’s twisted

It’s twisted

I don’t wanna wait
I want it
I don’t wanna wait
I want it now

— instrumental break

I don’t wanna wait
I want it
I don’t wanna wait
I want it
Track Name: Too Late
Who will calm your shaky heart?
Pull you away before it all comes crashing?
People drift apart.
But the silence says this is not passing.

It’s not too late for love.
No it’s not too late.

Bitter water, poisoned well.
Hasn’t been easy to align our orbits.
And though it seems all’s gone to hell.
A disaster as the days are forfeit.

It’s not too late for love.
No it’s not too late.
It’s not too late for us.
No it’s not too late.

Stop walking off, and shutting down,
You’re digging in; just drop your weapon now.
I’m not walking off, just breaking in,
I’m not afraid of your stormy weather.

Who will calm your shaky heart

It’s not too late for love.
No it’s not too late.
It’s not too late for us.
No it’s not too late.
Track Name: When The Evening Comes
The first time we laid on this hilltop,
We dreamed of the world we would make,
A brand new life and a perfect start.

New laws written deeply inside us,
A promise we never could break,
We both knew the way and we knew our part.

Here we are at the start,
You hold the keys to my heart,
Don’t you fear, we’ll get it right,
‘fore the evening comes.

Assembling my vague recollections,
The sunset weighs deep in the sky,
Building from memory and broken glass.

Somehow what started so clearly,
Is taking the spark from your eye,
If only we wait, maybe this will pass.

Here we are at the start,
You hold the keys to my heart,
Don’t you fear, we’ll get it right,
‘fore the evening

And when it all seems to fade,
I’ll take your hand unafraid,
Don’t you fear, we’ll get it right,
‘fore the evening comes.

Lying again on that hilltop,
The visions come flooding again,
Where we were sleeping was holy ground…
