INTRO

Let’s take a breath now
When do we ever settle down?
Let’s slow our minds and still our souls
The rest will follow

TAKE THE SHOT

Hold on tight and take a breath
This could all change in an instant
No guarantees, no promises
For all that you take for granted

But go ahead, if this is how you live your life
You pack it up before you even try
Go ahead, give yourself over to the lie
Keeps you from living while you’re alive
Or back up and try again
Take that one-in-a-million
Or back up and try again

One life, live it
Give it everything you’ve got
‘Cause your dreams are worth it
So take that shot

But go ahead, if this is how you live your life
You pack it up before you even try
Go ahead, give yourself over to the lie
Keeps you from living while you’re alive
Or back up and try again
Take that one-in-a-million
Or back up and try…

It would be so much better in the long run
If you tried and you failed time and time again
Then to play it safe and not do what you love
No matter what you are always left wondering

What if, I let go?
What could be the best-case scenario?
What if, I let go?
What could be?

But go ahead, if this is how you live your life
You pack it up before you even try
Go ahead, give yourself over to the lie
Keeps you from living while you’re alive

Go ahead, if this is how you live your life
You pack it up before you even try
Go ahead, give yourself over to the lie
Keeps you from living while you’re alive
You pack it up before you even try
Keeps you from living while you’re alive

What if, I let go?
What could be the best-case scenario?
What if, I let go?
What could be?

CAREFREE

All I’m asking, is for a little time to feel like I

Can regain composure

To reset and then move on

From these feelings I’ve been sitting on

 

But this cycle starts again

 

Can you take me back in time

‘Cause all my carefree memories are fading

Can you share this load that I

Have carried all along without breaking down

 

All I’m saying, is there’s never any time to clear my mind

All this noise is echoing

I need a way to shut it off

Before my normal is lost

 

But this cycle starts again

Can you take me back in time

‘Cause all my carefree memories are fading

Can you share this load that I

Have carried all along without breaking down

 

Can’t I just have a bad day

Without reliving all my mistakes?

I feel it now, I’m breaking down

 

I need a break, I need some time away

From the weight of responsibilities

I feel it now, I’m breaking down

 

But that’s not who I am

I guess I just need to vent sometimes

And clear my mind

Before the cycle starts again

 

Can you take me back in time

‘Cause all my carefree memories are fading

Can you share this load that I

Have carried all along without breaking down

BURN BRIGHT

You know exactly what you want

Right now it’s what your brother’s got

And you won’t hesitate to let us know

You think you’re in control

Who’s to say that you’re not?

 

You know you’ve got your mother’s heart

You might have more than just my eyes

‘Cause when you tell a joke like I would do

And you’re only two

I feel I’m doing something right

 

All I want to say is take that fire inside…

 

And burn bright

‘Cause you’re full of life

Don’t let them keep you in line

Yeah you’re a wildfire

So hit them with the sunrise

All of this darkness needs a little light

 

Burn bright, burn bright

 

You know exactly what you need

Right now it’s something you can’t reach

And you won’t hesitate to scream for help

Or just pull down the shelf

Some lessons you don’t have to teach

 

We give an inch you take a mile

All with the sweetest little smile

We leave the room and it gets torn apart

Floors covered with your art

You must be your mother’s child

 

All I want to say is take that fire inside…

 

And burn bright

‘Cause you’re full of life

Don’t let them keep you in line

Yeah you’re a wildfire

So hit them with the sunrise

All of this darkness needs a little light (a little light)

 

Burn bright, burn bright

 

I’ll catch you when you fall

So don’t think, don’t hesitate at all

This world doesn’t need you do be dull

And you, you’re far from boring

 

And burn bright

‘Cause you’re full of life

Don’t let them keep you in line

Yeah you’re a wildfire

So hit them with the sunrise

All of this darkness needs a little light (a little light)


Burn bright, burn bright

THESE MOMENTS

I never want to take you for granted

Disarming smile, your brilliant mind

Out of billions and billions of planets

The stars align, and now you’re mine

 

I could just sit here forever

At least until the sun goes down

Here in these moments together

I’ll stay as long as time allows

 

So you’ll never feel alone

 

Everyone has a dream

You are my fantasy

And I just want to stay in these moments forever

 

My love for you was so automatic

As soon as we met, you filled my mind

When we talked you would cut through the static

Ten years have passed, and you’re still mine

 

So glad we said

Forever

 

Everyone has a dream

You are my fantasy

And I just want to stay in these moments forever

 

It doesn’t matter where you are

My heart will follow you

It doesn’t matter where you are

My heart will follow

 

Everyone has a dream

And mine leads right to you

 

Everyone has a dream

You are my fantasy

And I just want to stay in these moments forever

FADE

You once controlled my mind

With bitter thoughts and broken dreams

Not something to ignore

You’ve always been a part of me

 

Well I don’t want to feel you anymore

Yeah you don’t have a home here anymore

 

I don’t want to feel

 

You know that everyone here would surround me

So you cut me off

Made me feel like I was lost

I know you’re clawing your way right back to me

But I’ve come too far

To fade right back into the dark

 

There’s comfort in your grip

The simplicity of old routines

But to break out of that trap

Is the first step in living free

 

I don’t want to feel you anymore

Yeah you don’t have a home here anymore

 

I don’t want to feel

 

You know that everyone here would surround me

So you cut me off

Made me feel like I was lost

I know you’re clawing your way right back to me

But I’ve come too far

To fade right back into the dark

 

It seems my memories have changed

Thought I had a broken melody

But it was you there this whole time

Singing these offkey harmonies

 

Still it’s not a total loss

Because my fear of you is gone

I can look back and see how far I’ve come

And continue to evolve

 

You know that everyone here would surround me

So you cut me off

Made me feel like I was lost

I know you’re clawing your way right back to me

But I’ve come too far

To fade right back into the dark

ORION

New lungs, breathing

Tiny hands are reaching out

Time is slowing down

 

New heart, beating

I thought I had things figured out

You turned them upside-down

 

Now all I want to know is if you’re okay

While the rest of the world just fades away

 

It always hurts to say goodbye

‘Cause I never want to leave

I just want to spend our time, making memories

You see the stars, and how they shine?

Well that’s what you are to me,

That’s what you are to me

 

Hard to remember life before my heart, my blood

 

Orion

 

Walking, then reading

We watched you figure this life out

Never slowing down

 

Twenty-four seasons

You’ve lived and loved and laughed out loud

With emphasis on loud

 

It always hurts to say goodbye

‘Cause I never want to leave

I just want to spend our time, making memories

You see the stars, and how they shine?

Well that’s what you are to me,

That’s what you are to me

 

Hard to remember life before my heart, my blood

 

Orion

 

You turned me into who I am

And that’s something no one can take away

We’re here for every single step

And I love to watch you learn and grow and change

 

It always hurts to say goodbye

‘Cause I never want to leave

I just want to spend our time, making memories

You see the stars, and how they shine?

Well that’s what you are to me,

That’s what you are to me

IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS

Work, eat, sleep, rinse and repeat

Every day the same routine

I don’t even mind

That it’s so familiar

 

‘Cause there’s a million little things

That break up the monotony

And remind me I

I love familiar

 

‘Cause it’s you and me

And this family we’ve grown

And it feels like home

Each new day is a journey through the unknown

And it feels like home

So familiar

 

At the end of a crazy week

Just take a break for dance parties

We make space in our lives

Not just to fill the time

 

Even when our days may be

Wall-to-wall insanity

These are the times that we’ll

Remember fondly

 

‘Cause it’s you and me

And this family we’ve grown

And it feels like home

Each new day is a journey through the unknown

And it feels like home

All these little things are the important seeds we’ve sown

So they can feel at home

And each new day is a journey through the unknown

And it feels like home

 

It’s so familiar

It’s so familiar

 

‘Cause it’s you and me

And this family we’ve grown

And it feels like home

We live each day in this unending grace we’re shown

And it feels like home

 

I get so lost in myself sometimes

I can’t see past these storm-lit cloudy skies

When all I need is a little light

To take me out of my crowded mind

And into a place where all of these

Overbearing thoughts start fading

And I’m left finding joy

In all the little things

COURTING DISASTER

I can get lost in the reasons

It’s just a waste of time

Doesn’t mean a thing

 

I’m convinced it’s only a season

Just a point in time

Doesn’t have to be

 

A part of me

I’ve been feeling like I’m courting disaster

‘Cause I’ve been focusing on what comes after

I’ve been feeling like I’m courting disaster

Can we skip to happy ever after?

 

Am I missing out?

 

I’m always on a hunt for the meaning

It takes up so much time

And doesn’t change a thing

 

The end result can be so deceiving

It’s just a frame of mind

Doesn’t have to be

 

I’ve been feeling like I’m courting disaster

‘Cause I’ve been focusing on what comes after

I’ve been feeling like I’m courting disaster

Can we skip to happy ever after?

 

Am I missing out?

 

All the time I waste is gone

And I can’t replace it

All these masks that I have worn

Left me feeling faceless

 

Still your light it lingers on

Drawing me to embrace it

And this path you put me on

Well it’s time I take it

 

It’s time I take it

 

I’ve been feeling like I’m courting disaster

‘Cause I’ve been focusing on what comes after

I’ve been feeling like I’m courting disaster

Can we skip to happy ever after?

Am I missing out?

RUN

Well you’re out here all alone

Facing demons on your own

Or at least that’s what it feels like

 

Will you ever put up a fight?

The smallest risk for you is like

Seeing your life flash before your eyes

 

And that’s no way to live

When you have so much more to give

 

So why do you run?

Why do you run?

If your past is what makes you insecure

You can learn from your failures

 

So why do you run?

Why do you run?

If you ever look past this cage you’re in

You’ll see

 

We set our own limitations

 

You’ve got this fear of missing out

External lies mixed with self-doubt

Brings it all to the surface

 

This overactive internal voice

It feels your head with sadistic noise

Start to believe that you’re worthless

 

So why do you run?

Why do you run?

If your past is what makes you insecure

You can learn from your failures

 

So why do you run?

Why do you run?

If you ever look past this cage you’re in

You’ll see

  

We set our own limitations

We set our own limitations

 

You scrape by with a fraction of self-esteem

But there’s hope in the future of living free

Yeah there’s hope

So don’t let go

 

So why do you run?

Why do you run?

If your past is what makes you insecure

You can learn from your failures

 

So why do you run?

Why do you run?

If you ever look past this cage you’re in

You’ll see

ALL I HAVE

I met you in the strangest way

In a moment that stretched on for days

Now I see you in everything

Like the stars in the night and the summer breeze

 

I know deep down I have changed

And who I was has passed away

But I still get stuck looking back

Don’t embrace what I have but I chase what I lack

 

Oh God

Oh God

Break me down to the basics

So I don’t overthink this

And I will sing

Oh God, oh God, oh God

 

You were with me in my darkest moments

Carried the weight when I felt too weak

Still I feel I’m faking faith most of the time

Can I get back to the point where I just believed

 

Oh God

Oh God

Break me down to the basics

So I don’t overthink this

I need release

Oh God, oh God, oh God

 

I give up control

‘Cause I, can’t do this alone

I need you to know

There’s fire still in these bones

 

And all you want

Is everything

And all I have

Is nothing

 

All my mistakes and clever ways to occupy my mind

Feel so pitiful

They feel so pitiful

So can you take my doubt, my pain, this broken life

And make something beautiful

Can you make it beautiful?

 

All my mistakes and clever ways to occupy my mind

Feel so pitiful

They feel so pitiful

So can you take my doubt, my pain, this broken life

And make something beautiful

Can you make it beautiful?

 

All my mistakes and clever ways to occupy my mind

Feel so pitiful

They feel so pitiful

So can you take my doubt, my pain, this broken life

And make something beautiful

Can you make it beautiful?
