Track Name: Scars
When I was younger I’d walk and stare at the ceiling
Pretend I was walking upon it, then I’d bump my knee
And that was the day I decided life wouldn’t be easy
Cuz nothing down here is as simple as I want it to be

Oh, oh – I’m covered with scars from my past
Oh, oh – The future has come much too fast

I grew up inside an old house, a hundred years standing
I despised all the cracks and the holes that happened with time
But when I was older my parents, they said we were leaving
And now I drive past and all I want is to go inside

Oh, oh – I’m covered with scars from my past
Oh, oh – The future has come much too fast
Oh, oh – I thought I’d recover with time
Oh, oh – My fears are still covered with pride

Oh, oh – I’m covered with scars from my past
Oh, oh – The future has come much too fast
Oh, oh – I thought I’d recover with time
Oh, oh – My fears are still covered with pride

My fears are still covered in pride
My fears are still covered in pride
Track Name: Michigan
This winter is bitter cold
Jump in the car drive through two feet of snow
I can’t wait around for it to go away
For the next three months I think it’s here to stay

Oh Michigan…it’s a shame to see the state you’re in
All our bank accounts are growing thin
But I still think there’s something grand within
Cuz I can’t leave…Michigan

I wonder what it’s like to see
Unemployment rates below thirteen
We’ve lost our bootstraps, who will pull us up?
This capitalism has turned to capitol loss

Oh Michigan…I am searching for a job again
After four years of school I think I’ve come unhinged
Well maybe I should go but for some reason
I just can’t leave…

So how’s your white-picket fence?
How’s your American Dream?
Has this all worked out the way you planned it to be?
Or would you trade this race for just a little peace?
Just a little peace…
Track Name: It Takes a Long Time
I lay down and think about
The life that has passed me by
And I wonder, where have I gone wrong?

I thought the steps I’d take
Would bring me to a much grander place
Why to some things have to take so long?

It takes a long time to figure it out
It takes a lot of trying and wandering around
To find what we want, to know what we want
It feels like I’m knocking on every door
And every time I think
“I’m looking for so much more”
Oh, so much more

I’m finding my ambitions fall
And rise much like the tide
And my patience is crowded with dismay

And now I kind of realize
That waiting to arrive
Is not as good as the things along the way

It takes a long time to figure it out
It takes a lot of trying and wandering around
To find what we want, to know what we want
It feels like I’m knocking on every door
And every time I think
“I’m looking for so so much more”
Oh, so much more

I keep I keep knocking on every door
And every time I think
“I’m looking for so somuch more”
Oh, so much more
Ooo, so much more
Ooo, so much more
Track Name: River Runs Deep
I can't go on just worrying about believing
I can't go on just waiting for my meaning
I won't stay here and linger in my fear
I will walk on, I will walk on

I won't arrive and find myself complete and
I'm not the sum of all the words I speak and
I will resolve to be more that just involved
I will love deep, I will love

River runs deep, I feel it on the inside
I find it hard to sleep when I feel alone at night
So wash over me and let me feel the cool stream
Of life running wild, of love like a child, of life running wild

I know at times my wobbling knees have failed me
I know my heart some of the time betrays me
But I find I can be more than who I am
I will be strong, I will be

River runs deep, I feel it on the inside
I find it hard to sleep when I feel alone at night
So wash over me and let me feel the cool stream
Of life running wild, of love like a child

River runs deep, I feel it on the inside
I find it hard to sleep when I feel alone at night
So wash over me and let me feel the cool stream
Of life running wild, of love like a child, of life running wild
Track Name: Back to December
I wrote all the words that you said
On my wall so I would not forget

What I want, what I want
Is just to remember
How it feels, how it feels
Just to be back to December

I spend too much time thinking of
That night when I felt so alive

What I want, what I want
Is just to remember
How it feels, how it feels
Just to be back to December

Oh, What I think about, all I think about
Oh, Is when that feeling fell on me
Oh, I get tired of always walking around
With chains on my feet

What I want, what I want
Is just to remember
How it feels, how it feels
Just to be back to December

Oh, What I think about, all I think about
Oh, Is when that feeling fell on me
Oh, I get tired of always walking around
With chains on my feet
Track Name: A Place of Our Own
I want to live in a house by the sea
So I can feel the waves crash into me
By the shore line I would watch until you came to me
With news from town and folks that we’d know
We wouldn’t have a better place to go

Will you go away with me
Where the sun is always shining?
We’ll live a simple life, yeah
Will you go away with me?
Let’s take all that we own
And trade it for a place of our own

In the morn we could watch the sun rise
And in the night we could sleep under star-filled skies
And I know we’d have to leave our friends and families
But we can send them cards so they’d know where we’d be
Or they can come and live for free

Will you go away with me
Where the sun is always shining?
We’ll live a simple life, yeah
Will you go away with me?
Let’s take all that we own
And trade it for…

Will you go away with me
Where the sun is always shining?
We’ll live a simple life, yeah
Will you go away with me?
Let’s take all that we own and trade it for
Let’s take all that we own and trade it for
Let’s take all that we own and trade it for
A place of our own
Track Name: Get Up and Go
I’d like to know where my feet are taking me
The future sits so silently…it makes me insecure
I’d like to know, but my heart is always breaking me
My hands cling on to all they see…

See me…tell me who to be
Free me…from all this choosing, all this losing,
All these voices screaming “Get up and go!”
‘Cos I don’t know…I don’t know

I’d like to know the path that’s laid before me
That it would come to me so clearly and I could finally know
But one thing I know is that life don’t work out that way
I just have to walk day by day…

See me…tell me who to be
Free me…from all this choosing, all this losing,
All these voices screaming “Get up and go!”
‘Cos I don’t know…I don’t know
