Track Name: Now Is Not
Never did I once believe in what
I would one day know is all there ever was
You are the only one
The only solid one

Now I watch my friends go down the stream
I see them in a light and fading dream
I didn’t need it much
I couldn’t care for such

We never really fill our senses
We never really make it real
We never sing it out
We never sing it out loud
We never really want to speak it
Too scared to speak the true
There is no place for us
Not for any of us

No right no wrong no reason now
No time to heal what’s broken now
No place for us
Not for any of us

We never really fill our senses
We never really make it real
We never sing it out
We never sing it out loud
We never really want to speak it
Too scared to speak the true
There is no place for us
Not for any of us

If the sun would fade and blacken out
And the sky would fall down to the ground
Do you think we mind it much
Would you mind it much
Track Name: The Still Unknown
Never did I loose my wishing
Never did I loose my dream
Never did I loose my faith in
The future I'd seen

Even if the blood was dripping
Even if my feet were sore
Even if I couldn't tell you
What I was doing it for

Traveling onward
Moving ahead
Walking down a dirt road
Colored in red
Putting my heart out
Singing my song
Trying to find the picture
In where I belong

Always thought I knew me
Always felt so sure
Now all is changing
Just don't know anymore

Something is coming on
The Unknown, The Hidden One
Got to find a way to keep from getting older
Got to stay on my feet a bit longer

Traveling onward
Moving ahead
Walking down a dirt road
Colored in red
Putting my heart out
Singing my song
Trying to find the picture
In where I belong
Track Name: Places in Your Sleep
When sunlight shines upon your path
And faith is in your heart
And you breath the air with a lightened mind
Like nothing was ever dark
When birds sing into your ear
And the month is blooming May
And the echo of your yesteryear
Has faded all away
All away

When the hour is full
When the bell ring out
When you lift up your weary head
When the week is done
When you’re walking home
When you lie down in your bed
When white clouds sail across the sky
And the sun is setting low
And the great, wide open wilderness
Is where you want to go
Want to go

Then let me hold your hand
And let me follow where you lead
I want to see the places
That you visit in your sleep

Oh, let me hold your hand
And let me follow where you lead
I want to see the places
That you visit in your sleep
Track Name: Now Is Not (feat. Hannah Tolf)
Then
Along with joy
Along with play
Along with words
Along with love
Was us

Behind the willow tree
Out on the lake
Along the shore
Up on the hill
Below the sky
We were

Always side by side
Always eye to eye
Never far apart
Always heart by heart

Now 
Aside from loss
Aside from hurt
Aside from pain
Aside from tears
Is not
Is not
Is not
