Track Name: Honesty
I have tried to hold steady for you but this is the truth
That I don’t know and I won’t know but I know that you do
I have a reason but I don’t feel it
Afraid that joy can’t enter back in
There’s a point to all this but I can’t find it
Gotta hope in what I can’t reign in

What am I even doing here
Who am I even kidding
This is my only honesty
Are you there for me

I can see that there’s beauty in this
Beauty’s yours and I am too but I wish that I could see you
Now I know that it was never about me
But truth is my heart is choked by weeds
There’s a point to all this but I can’t find it
Gotta hope in what I can’t reign in

What am I even doing here
Who am I even kidding
Can I say that I love you
Because I love you
What if I can’t make up for this
This is my only honesty
Track Name: Crying Out
If I had a sounder thinking
Spirit and heart would follow quickly
Hope is easy when you’re with me
I’ll focus on the best that is

And if that focus dwindles nearly
At least I know that you still hear me
And enter into cerebral space
To seal our love and help me fear thee

God, I’m crying out
God, come hold me now
Track Name: Like a Child
You hold me like a child
You let my thoughts run wild
You hold me like a child
You let my dreams run wild

I just wanna stay with you
Track Name: In the Ocean Deep
Even in the deepest parts
There’s life

I don’t wanna push you away again
I just need to know
Did you see the pain I have carried
Did you give up hope

‘Cause I’ve been hiding all these years
Only Jesus found me here
I expected you to notice me
But people don’t know everything

It’s so hard to filter all these lies
So hard to look you in the eye
Scared you’ll see my heart bound tight
But that’s all I want; I wonder why

I’m still breathing
Heart’s still beating

I kept my jaw locked and arms crossed
And my lips sealed
I’m not a victim I am a voice
That’s how I’m healed
Track Name: What We're Running Toward
Trapped behind a window pane
Crying out is this fragile frame
And you break the glass

Shatter every lived-out lie
The pain was real but the old must die
To surrender this space for life

I’m not gonna let go of this love

Eyes are fixed in an empty gaze
She walks like you don’t have a name
But I have your voice

You enter in and call her home
And reunite her heart with soul
With a love she’s never known

We’re not gonna let go of this love
