Is The Only 04:12
out on that open road all alone, no one to hold at night imagination runs wild, you ran wild all the years that you smoked away circling like a bird in the same place how you survived the loneliness, I can't imagine all alone in that hospital bed images running through your head like the day your son was born or the night that your love was over but two wrongs don't make a right and you don't give up on those you love waiting for me to show up I learned my lesson the hard way forgiveness is the only credits
Always 04:26
Well get out of your head Forget every word she ever said That made you cry Exonerate yourself and those you love Forever, always That's the vow I make For you I'd break my own heart Like the wind and the rain Forever, always Well I'm not a saint But I've been working hard to save myself from the same old mistakes That happened long ago They're not my own Forever, always That's the vow I make For you I'd break my own heart Every storm we face Forever, always
Worthy 03:29
Who cares what's real or fake Who cares if we relate We're characters in disguise hiding ourselves inside What did you do to get so damn moody how did you prove to me you're worthy We're hanging on inside Where memories and truth collide We make up archetypes We are all alike Win and you can be a star they say you'll go very far they say that pride only hurts I wonder which is worse Inside a little mystery do you want to look in and see inside a dark history do you really want to know me How could you do that to me how could I prove to you, that I'm worthy


3 songs - 3 fragments of life experience - trauma, grief, forgiveness. A little story told in 3 acts, of how love and honesty can prevail over fear and anger.
