Track Name: Only You
the seas don't harbor their thoughts
the leaves don't add up each loss
only men go and make this life hard

the stars don't bother with time
now birds don't weigh themselves down
only men go and make this life hard

the trees barely sway in the wind
the trees barely sway in the wind
only men go and build up these walls

only you can live within life
only you can live within life
only you can live within life

only you
Track Name: From Above
the sun resting on the ocean shore
warm sand outside each door
fall breeze across your face
sunshine on a new spring day

from above it's hard to see each moment
from above it's hard to see each moment

now I prefer the simple joys
the soft words of an honest heart
the sweet touch of a lovers hand
the call of the birds
steps through the woods

from above it's hard to see each moment
from above it's hard to see each moment
from above it's hard to see each moment
from above it's hard to see each moment
Track Name: All Along
All along you knew
I was waiting for you
If you asked, I'd listen
If you struggled, I'd give my life

All along you knew
I was there for you
if you cried, I'd comfort
if you were lost, I'd find you if I could

All along you knew, I'd be searching for you
As long as a breath was enough
to carry my life on...

You can only search for those
That want to be found
Track Name: For Life
love I've been waiting for the right moment to
tell you I love you so for life

now hardships will come and go if I stay with you
but good times will surely make it last

love the hardest thing that I will ever do
is to give up my fear to be with you

the callous and shallow they hide from their hearts
the tired and bitter fear their love
the callous and shallow they hide from their hearts
the tired and bitter fear their love

love I've been waiting for the right moment to
tell you I love you so for life
Track Name: True Love
if it's hard to love, something must not be right
you can try and try, but you can't
no you can't force true love

cause if it's meant to be, it'll happen on its own
that's not to say you can sit and wait
then be bitter when it don't go your way

cause it's up to you, yes it's up to you
to be there when life
finally goes your way

cause it's up to you, yes it's up to you
to be there when life
finally goes your way

now if it's hard to love, something must not be right
you can try and try, but you can't
no you can't force true love

if it's hard to love, something must not be right
you can try and try, but you can't
no you can't force true love
