Track Name: In With the New
Walking toward the changing blue
Every step feels a little bit better
Sun and moon are both in view
Feel the light left sink in through my skin

In the distance there's a radio
Someone's listening as they're washing the dishes
Singing sounds that I've never known
Feel the love seep in through all my ears

I can't stop smiling
The love I've been searching for's
Alive and
It's been here all the time
And inside I've
Still got some work to do
But right now it's
Time for in with the new

Silhouettes of our shifting earth
See the sun floating past the horizon
Each breath is a new rebirth
Feel my lungs fill up with life and light

And I thought I was alone before
But now I know I'll never be
All this time love's been here at my door
And I held the key

Sounds of twilight settling in
Turn back towards the place I'll rest my head tonight
Close my eyes, I know I'll dream
Of a place where love pours down like rain

I can't stop smiling
The love I've been searching for's
Alive and
It's been here all the time
And inside I've
Still got some work to do
But right now it's
Time for in with the new
Track Name: End of the World
It’s not the end of the world
We don’t have that kind of power
It’ll continue to turn
Either with us or without us

It was here long before
And it long will outlast us
So it’s neither mine nor yours
For it long will surpass us

Calling out, uncertain and afraid we feel we know not what we need
But reaching out and lifting up our gaze we see
Eventually, the world will find its way back to peace

It’s not the end of the world
Yeah, these bodies are but matter
And anyway it unfolds
Eventually our particles will scatter

It was here long before
And it long will continue
So since we can’t close the door
Might as well let the light shine through

Calling out, uncertain and afraid we feel we know not what we need
But reaching out and lifting up our gaze we see
Eventually, the world will find its way back to peace
Track Name: Evolve
There’s a piece, there’s a part
There’s a flicker, there’s a spark
That burns in all
And it twists, and it turns
It divides and it diverges
Until it’s lost

They say you’d better choose what you’re about
Make your choice and mark it down
It’s now or never
Yeah, fast is better
In the real world, you’d best get yours
No time to stop, no time to explore
Stuck with no release
But love lets us free

Because we are more than the sum of all our parts
We’re the silence in the space between the notes
There’s a force that brings us together
It’s the same one that created us all
And now, the point is to evolve

Is there a limit to our love
On what’s allowed, on who deserves it? No
It can’t be broken
Must I decide my point of view
Based on the lies masked as the one and only truth?

Such words aren’t spoken
Who are we to pretend we know
There’s only one way to make it home
All different paths toward a greater goal

Because we are more than the sum of all our parts
We’re the silence in the space between the notes
There’s a force that brings us together
It’s the same one that created us all
And now, the point is to evolve

We can rally, we can rise
We can change, well, we can try and try
To keep moving forward
And we’ll get what we give
And we’ll live if we let live
It takes all kinds
We’ll do it one step at a time

Because we are more than the sum of all our parts
We’re the silence in the space between the notes
There’s a force that brings us together
It’s the same one that created us all
And now, the point is to evolve
Track Name: World Without Your Love
Seeking solace in the shadows and the sea
To begin again
Sovereign moments when my heart can be at peace
And begin again
Don’t know where I lost my way
But nothing quite feels the same
In a world without your love

Been running round the world from my own heart
Is the damage done?
Dug so deep all I can see is dark
Is the damage done?
There’s static in my song
Nowhere quite feels like home
In a world without your love

Everything is as it’s been
Same old thoughts, the same old new locations
Spinning round in circles
Searching for some grand escape
But
Turning back the clock
Take back the times I turned away

Searching sounds to find the cracks within the walls
Where the light breaks through
Tear through layers ‘til there’s nothing left at all
Then the light breaks through
Close my eyes, I finally see you never left me
And I will never be
In a world without your love
