Track Name: Follow My Heart
Getting away getting away
Just me and two headlights guiding me tonight
I'm alright
Passing me by passing me by
Fields that are green and mountains so high pass by
Well goodbye

'Cause something inside me is calling me out
Guess I need to follow to see what it's about

All that I know all that I know
Is nothing of value I just did what I've been told
I need to see what I could be
With a little more time and a little more space for me

'Cause something inside me is calling me out
Guess I need to follow to see what it's about

I'm not quite sure just where I'm going
Might be taking the wrong way
Taking the wrong way
But I don't need no signs to lead me down this road
I'll follow my heart this time

If you're my lover follow me down
I've got nothing to offer it's just good to have you around
When I'm down
Track Name: A Tiny Light
I found a tiny light
A shiny dot that burns in your eye
It shows you are alive
Like a flowerbed in bloom in july

You shine through to me
I'm catching a spark it's burning me
'Til I am aglow in fiery light

I was a darkening sky
I cast a shadow on my own life
But then I found a tiny light
It's always light that keeps us alive

You shine through to me
I'm catching a spark it's burning me
'Til I am aglow in fiery light
You will shine
Track Name: This Broken Home
Long ago
This broken home was all we had
Me in my room you in your bed
I couldn't dare to make a sound

All my life
I've waited for you to come alive
To heal and peel off all your lies
I guess I've waited for too long

'Cause I feel that I might become the same
If I don't leave or if I don't change my name

And so I dream myself in strange and distant cities
With a place all of my own
And If I stayed away long enough to be forgotten
As someone new I'd come back home

Oh and I
I sing you songs of moving away
When all I ever did was stay
It's just a dream I like to dream

Because I
I couldn't fall far from the tree
But always wished someday I'd be
Picked up and carried away

And by now I would be the one to blame
If I don't leave or if I don't change my name

And so I dream myself in strange and distant cities
With a place all of my own
And If I stayed away long enough to be forgotten
As someone new I'd come back home
Track Name: Follow Me Down
Follow me down follow me down tonight
Down to the lake where the moon is the only light
The wolf and the hare are already there at the waterside
So follow me down follow me down tonight

See how the wind blows the tears in your eyes all dry
No one will know you were here or what made you cry
The blankets I brought will keep both of us warm
'Til the dawn's first light
So follow me down follow me down tonight

And when you're lonely in your bed at night
In the city sleepless and uptight
You should wake me grab my hand and run
And I'll follow you down to the place where we once came from

Follow me down follow me down tonight
I know a place where we can go to hide
Track Name: Soapbox Waltz
Once I owned a soapbox car
Made of shiny tin
I joined every race there was
But barely did I win

When you drive a soapbox car
Your only way is down
When speeding towards the finish line
Going down's alright

One day when I took my racing helmet off I saw
Pretty things beside this road
That's when I found you
Track Name: The Great Drought
Everyone moves
They can't stand this small town anymore
They're packing their mules
Can't make a living with a harvest so poor

But here's where I was born
And here's where I'll die
And in this dusty ground
My weary bones one day will lie

The wind and the rain
Haven't been here for so many weeks
The heat plays its game
Bakes the cornfields and dries out the creeks

And I understand
Anyone who moves away
And I'll do my best
Not to let show how I need you to stay

So If you go
Fare you well fare you well
May you find hope
In a far-off and promising land
Track Name: Look Ahead
Look ahead my friend look ahead
I know there's always one more thing to make you sad
And we won't get rid of it before we're dead
So look ahead my friend look ahead

You walk on coals you burn your feet
'Cause someone told you: "man, this is the street!"
You kept believing in the ones that lead
'Til you got lost with them out in the sea
In times like these it's hard to tell
If this is real or if it's just a spell
Or what was said before the hammer fell
That sentenced you to never get well

Look ahead my friend look ahead
I know there's always one more thing to make you sad
And we won't get rid of it before we're dead
So look ahead my friend look ahead
Look ahead my friend look ahead
