Track Name: Parachute
They say a picture’s worth a thousand words,
So I’ve been painting clouds in the sky.
Every time that you’re feeling blue
Just take a look up and see the song of you and I.

Of course, everybody’s felt this way before;
You keep knocking but nobody opens the door.
You say, “One more time, and I’m gonna leave.”
I’m sure times will only get harder,
But together we can make it much farther.
How long’s it gonna take for you to see?

Let me be your parachute;
I’ll be right behind you
When it feels like the world’s coming down.
And though your heart may give you reason,
I am never leaving.
I’ll be yours through the final mile.

Take a deep breath, and look around.
Hey now, you’re 20 feet off the ground.
I’ll be your wings when you’re falling down.
Darling, just say the word, and I will carry you.

They say in outer space you can’t hear a word.
I bet the aliens get lonely at night.
One more reason why I’m glad we live on earth:
I can listen to your voice for hours at a time.

Of course, everybody’s felt this way before,
But I’m over them butterflies; I’m totally yours.
I’d like to grow old with you.
I’m sure this is only the beginning
Of a life that’s well-worth the living.
Please tell me it’s starting soon.
Jump into the deep and

Let me be your parachute;
I’ll be right behind you
When it feels like the world’s coming down.
And though your heart may give you reason,
I am never leaving.
I’ll be yours through the final mile.

Take a deep breath, and look around.
Hey now, you’re 20 feet off the ground.
I’ll be your wings when you’re falling down.
Darling, just say the word, and I will…

Carry you- through the ups and downs of life.
Carry you- through your pain and your strife.
Carry you- I’ll be there for tomorrow.
Carry you- I wanna make this heart your home.

Let me be your parachute;
I’ll be right behind you
When it feels like the world is a crumbling down
And though your heart may give you reason,
I am never leaving.
I’ll be yours through the final mile.

Take a deep breath, and look around.
Hey now, you’re 20 feet off the ground.
I’ll be your wings when you’re falling down.
Darling, just say the word, and let me be your parachute.
Track Name: Potential
I’ve been running on empty; time to get my tank refilled.
I’ve spent countless minutes and hours trying to turn the wheels in my head.
Can’t seem to think straight; all this time is only keeping me away
From you.

Now, I wanna make this something special; something you’ve never felt before.
I know waiting’s hard to handle—just remember that our future’s so much more.

We’ve got so much potential, but it’s not our time.
Believe me when I say it, girl. I want you by my side.
Every day, we’re one step closer to that starting line.
You have to understand that I only have one try.
So it’s not our time.

These days, I try so hard just to come out empty-handed.
I fumble for the words; I’m running on faith and second chances.
The feeling’s been there for a while, but it’s okay to take things slow.
We can take this slow.

People told me I was crazy for not letting you know, but I had some tricks up my sleeve.
The hardest part would be watching you go; that’s why I’m making sure you’re never gonna leave.

We’ve got so much potential, but it’s not our time.
Believe me when I say it, girl. I want you by my side.
Every day, we’re one step closer to that starting line.
You’ve have to understand that I only have one try.

So, we’re taking a number at the back of the line.
I don’t know about you, but I think our feelings will only grow with time.
If we keep our focus, we’ll never notice another.
There’s no doubt in my mind that we’re perfect for each other.

We’ve got so much potential, but it’s not our time.
Believe me when I say it, girl. I want you by my side.
Every day, we’re one step closer to that starting line.
You’ve have to understand that I only have one try.
So it’s not our time.
Track Name: Little Rocks
If I could pen my thoughts to paper
I would write, I would write a thousand words.
I’d put ‘em in a bottle
And send it out, send it out across the earth.

Sooner or later, they’d find you.
Hopefully, not before I do.
I guess we’ll see.

I’m walking a wire out into the unknown.
I’m taking a chance—not quite sure where to go.
But when you get here, I’ll have nothing to fear.
Hand in hand, we’ll come out on top.
The mountains we climb will become little rocks.
Growing stronger each day, near to my heart,
I hope you’ll stay.

I can feel you from a distance,
And when you sleep, when you sleep I feel your pain.
‘Cause we’re both looking for someone;
Something we do believe we’ll never find again.

Sooner or later, I’ll find you.
Hopefully sooner ‘cause I’m through
Thinking there’s no you for me.

I’m walking a wire out into the unknown.
I’m taking a chance—not quite sure where to go.
But when you get here, I’ll have nothing to fear.
Hand in hand, we’ll come out on top.
The mountains we climb will become little rocks.
Growing stronger each day, near to my heart,
I hope you’ll

Stay close by my side, till the waters run dry.
You could be my forever, just you and me sounds better every
Day. I’m counting the miles.
I know you’re out there somewhere.
Track Name: Silhouette
There’s a feeling that I get deep down in my soul;
We’re somewhere in the middle.
Shattered dreams and pictures on the floor
Of a love that’s flown its course.

I’ve locked up my pride and thrown away the key.
I know this part all too well—it’s not for me.
You’ve made up your mind, and I can clearly see.

Have I faded to nothing more than a name?
I’m still reading while you’re turning the page.
Can we go back to the time we first met?
I’ve been blinded by this pile of regret.
Our love was more than a silhouette.

A frame can hold a pretty picture at first;
A story time can only tell, but
Later on down the line, the ink begins to blur
To a shady hue of who we once were.

Have I faded to nothing more than a name?
I’m still reading while you’re turning the page.
Can we go back to the time we first met?
I’ve been blinded by this pile of regret.
Our love was more than a silhouette.

Have I faded to nothing more than a name?
I’m still reading while you’re turning the page.
Can we go back to the time we first met?
I’ve been blinded by this pile of regret.
Our love was more than a silhouette.
Track Name: The Words (feat. Serena Hickey)
Hey, you. I know I’ve seen your face.
You stand out from the crowd, but I still don’t know your name.
And I’ll watch your smile from the side.
I need to be bold; I need to get out of here.
This terminal’s getting crowded, and my confidence is near
Gone, near gone, it’s almost gone.

Now, I’ve got to realize that this is a
Now or never situation;
Time to start a conversation.
Here I go…

Gotta stop waiting;
Opportunity’s knocking at my door.
No more hesitating;
Time to be more self-assured.
Talk is cheap but not when you’re me.
Each letter’s more than a penny’s worth.
Can you help me find the words?

Hey, you. I’ve seen you more than a time or two.
I catch a glimpse of your eyes, and I don’t know what to do.
I’ll try not to stare too long; don’t wanna come on too strong.
I just know I’m gonna mess this up,
And as time keeps ticking by, the words don’t seem to come out and I’m
Tongue-tied, tongue-tied. I’m tongue-tied.

Now I’ve got to realize that this is a
Now or never situation;
Time to start a conversation.
Here I go…

Gotta stop waiting;
Opportunity’s knocking at my door.
No more hesitating;
Time to be more self-assured.
Talk is cheap but not when you’re me.
Each letter’s more than a penny’s worth.
Can you help me find the words?

What if I told you? Maybe you feel the same way, too.
Don’t wanna let this go.
But I’m too scared to say it; inside my heart’s breaking.
That’s it; it’s time to let you know.

Hey, you. I know I’ve seen your face, but
Your smile, your eyes;
You’re an offer that I won’t refuse to take.

I’m done waiting;
Finally breaking down these walls.
I’m done hesitating;
There’s no way I’m gonna let you fall out of my life.
Talk is cheap, but when you’re with me,
I feel like I’m the luckiest guy on earth.
Ladidadada Dadada Dadada…
The words.
