Sing to the West

 
Pray to the east and sing to the west
Call your life beautiful
Call yourself blessed
Pray like you mean it
Sing like they hear you
You better call her and tell her,
Before it’s too late to
Before it’s too late to
   
Go east young man, be faithful to
The promise that you made
Do what you said you’d do
This is not a sacrifice
A blessing greater still
You better live up to

Be what you said you’d be, please
Believe, believe, just believe

Don’t dream it’s over, don't
Now it’s over

Chorus

Go west young man
Fear not this one
But fear is laughing at me
And I think it knows me too well
This is not the way I choose
But this is all I know
No one to lead me, to teach me

Be what you dreamed you’d be
Believe, believe, just believe

Don’t dream it’s over, don't
Now it’s over

Chorus

Pray to the east and sing to the west
Call your life beautiful
Call yourself blessed
Pray like you mean it
Sing like they hear you
You better call her and tell her
Before it’s too late to
Before it’s too late to
Before it’s too late to
Before it’s too late

But it’s not too late to,
No it’s never too late to
It’s not too late to



The Meantime


Yeah, in the meantime
Oh, you’ll be on my mind, yeah, you’ll be on my

I take back whatever it is I said last night
I didn’t mean to sound so dumb, so dumb, so I
Walk a little bit slower hoping you’ll pass by
When it comes down to it this time,
Yeah I will run, I will run
I said I will

In the meantime
It’s the strangest time
To fall in love
And I get so distracted by
What you said, what I did
And it's never enough

In the meantime
You’ll be my mind, yeah, you’ll be on my

I look back at whatever it is my life has been
I didn’t plan it all this way, no no, so you
Spend half of your life in dreams like movie endings
Spend the other half waiting for, waiting for
The holidays, waiting for the holidays
What are you waiting for?

In the meantime
It’s the hardest time
To hold on
And I get so distracted
By what you said, what I did,
And it's never, it’s never, it’s never enough

We struggle to believe it
That it’s better to just leave it
Up in the air
What can you say
When there’s nothing left to say?
And you can’t run away in the meantime

In the meantime

Oh, la la la da da da da
In the meantime
Oh, la la la da da da da
In the meantime
Oh, la la la da da da da
In the meantime
Oh, la la la da da da da
In the meantime
You’ll be gone
And I’ll be moving on.


Favorite Way Home


If you saw me while driving
As I walked down the street
Would you roll down your window and call out
As awkward as that may be

And if you saw I was smiling,
Would you smile too?
And what would you think if you knew
I was smiling ‘bout you?

I’m on my favorite way home
That leads by your door
And I pause to deliberate, is today the day
When I get the nerve to say
The truth—it’s you I adore.

And if you knew what I was thinking,
What I’m dying to say
And if you knew that I loved you, could you
Feel the same way?

I’m on my favorite way home
That leads by your door
And I pause to deliberate, is today the day
When I get the guts to say
The truth—it’s you I adore
It’s you I adore

And I’m on my favorite way home
And I’m on my favorite way home
And I’m going home.


Beautiful Sigh


Was it the fading of the light that
Made you close your pretty green eyes?
Was it the empty space by your side
That made you let out
Such a beautiful sigh?

Who are you eyeing anyway?
It’s me who’s sighing these days.

Is it a total lack of spine that
Makes me stand by and bide my time?
Is it a blinding fault of mine
That makes me sit by
As feelings die?

Who are you sighing for anyway?
It’s me who’s dying these days.

So cheer up, my sighing friend
You of all should know the end of every rise is a fall
Listen up open your eyes, eyes
You of all should know a sigh can sometimes
Say it all

Was it the fading of the light that
Made you close your starry green eyes?
Is it the empty space by my side
That made you let out
Such a beautiful sigh?

Who are you sighing for anyway?
It’s me who’s dying these days.


Arms to Hold You


Hey, don’t break
Don’t you bend
And please don’t give in,
Hold on, and hold fast
And I will hold you
‘Til the storm has passed
‘Til the storm has passed

Hey, don’t cry
I know it’s rough
But please don’t give up,
Hold on and hold true
‘Cause I am here
With arms to hold you
I'll always be near
With arms to hold you

‘Cause I’m always here,
And I’ll never, no I’ll never, no I’ll never forsake you
With arms to hold you
With arms to hold you
With arms to hold you
Please know I love you
With arms to hold you


Please Be Still


There’s no sense in talkin’ about
What you don’t understand, what you fear, what you doubt
When the ones who would listen
Aren’t the ones who would hear
When such a noisy distraction as this is near.
Ohhhhhhhh

There’s no sense in asking me now
Why I can’t seem to say that which could let this all out
When the ones who would hear it
Aren’t the ones who would care
When such a frustrating burden as this I bear
Ohhhhhhhhh

Please be still
Just hold on dear
Your life isn’t all wrong
Fear will leave you
Remember who you are, son
Be still, you’ll smile when it’s all done
Fear will leave you
Love will lead you along.

There’s no sense in crying right now
When you don’t know what will be
And how it all in the end will turn out
For there is one who does hear you
There are those who do care
And if you’ll only be still now
You can know that they’re there

Chorus

Chorus

Fear will leave you
God will relieve you
Time will test you, yeah,
But God, He will bless you

Fear will leave you
Love will lead you
Along, along
Please be still...
