Track Name: Everything You Need ~ Manda Mosher
When the walls are crumbling again
And you’re tired and running out of steam
And you think that you’ve lost that golden dream
I’ll give you everything you’ll ever need

When you sleep I’ll watch over your bed
And protect you from the nightmares in your head
And when you’re all alone and it’s too dark to see
I’ll give you everything you’ll ever need

Oh don’t slip away
Don’t fade to grey
‘Cuz I’ll give you everything you’ll ever need

When you’re old and time has come your way
And you’ve seen your childhood slip away
And when that other grass don’t seem so green
I’ll give you everything you’ll ever need

I’ll give you everything, everything that you need if you please
I’ll give you everything, everything that you need if you please

Oh don’t slip away
Don’t fade to grey
‘Cuz I’ll give you everything you’ll ever need
Manda Boo Songs/Bug House (ASCAP)
Track Name: Big Blue Heart ~ The Mazarines
I trace the shape
get swept away
by a single wave

lost at sea
I sink slowly
falling deep
falling deep

I chase the spark to find my
way inside, my way inside, your big blue heart

diving down
without a sound
iIm lost and found

in search of gold
desire grows
dreams unfold
dreams unfold

I chase the spark to find the
secrets of, the secrets of your
big blue heart
your big blue heart
find my way inside find my way inside
your big blue heart

there’s room inside
no where to hide
now we’re here

I chose to believe
in what I can’t see
I’m floating free
drifting free

I lite the spark to show the way inside, the way inside
my big blue heart
find your way inside find my way inside
big blue
big blue heart
Track Name: Until We Meet Again ~ A.J. Croce
The straight line
That you walked has turned away
The night is day
The path I stray
Until we meet again

The porch light
That you lit has burned and gone
Your marble fawn will carry on
Until we meet again

Until we meet again
I’ll be waiting for you
Until we meet again

The stars shine
Up above and down below
The embers glow
A cosmic show
Until we meet again

The truth that lies before my eyes
I see too late and so I wait
Track Name: Glory ~ Stefano Capobianco
The world’s gone awry
We cannot deny
It could be better
It could be better

Nothings seems right
But the future looks bright
It could be stronger
It could be stronger

The reason I know this
Is because all I know is
It will be alright
It will be alright

Glory, Glory,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
This feeling of knowing
That everything’s growing, Hallelujah

Will there be a day
When this all goes away
What is the meaning

How do we keep
This connection we seek
It could be stronger
It could be stronger

The reason I know this
Is because all I know is
It will be alright
It will be alright

Glory, Glory,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory,
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
This feeling of knowing
That everything’s growing, Hallelujah
Track Name: Swept Away ~ Dan Reed
heading home... to the farm
where my mother steered me from harm
where my father showed me how to be a man

chased the rabbits through the field
crashed my bike, bent up the wheels
funny how the heart does crave
all that's swept away, time and weather came
all those memories, still hold sway

so come on down, let your sweet light shine
under the old cottonwood tree, where the price for life was free
come on down, let your sweet light shine
it's the part of you that I can always find

I need some shade, in the summer corn
building fires, for the winter storm
the holy grail was right in front of me

fight the windmills in the fields
with wooden swords and cardboard shields
funny how the heart does crave
all that's swept away, time and weather came
all those memories, still hold sway

so come on down, let your sweet light shine
under the old cottonwood tree, where the price for life was free
come on down, let your sweet light shine
it's the part of you that I can always find

and though the buildings are all gone
I still hear your voice singing, "Boy, carry on!"

so come on down
Track Name: Looking For Sunshine ~ Shannon Hurley
Those summer days keep slipping away from me
I made mistakes, now you're running away from here
I can't pull you back out of yesterday
You're too far
I'm going crazy
Looking for Sunshine
Was it in my mind
Maybe you'll come back
I keep thinking someday
You'll give me a sweet sign
Hoping your walls will come tumbling down
My silent heart is waiting to follow you
In the dark, I'm pleading to let me through
'Cause I can't stand in the shadows of yesterday
It's too hard
I'm going crazy
Looking for Sunshine
Was it in my mind
Maybe you'll come back
I keep thinking someday
You'll give me a sweet sign
Hoping your walls will come tumbling down

Shine your light on the shadows and let me know
Where you are
I'm going crazy
Looking for Sunshine
Was it in my mind
Maybe you'll come back
I keep thinking someday
You'll give me a sweet sign
Hoping your walls will come tumbling down

Track Name: Unknown ~ Brandon Schott
When troubled times are all that I can see
help me raise my voice as an instrument of peace
& could you be my strength and lead me home
if I'm too tired and I can't stand alone

May I walk beside you as a friend -
keep you heart true till the end of an endless end.
If the night is dark and there's no going home
just close your eyes and know your not alone.

When it seems this world is but a dream that you can't shake
I will hold you near - till the dawn appears.
For in that steady grace no prayer ever goes to waste;
they all reach someone - when all is said and done...

So in the winter when it's cold as death
may we stand together until we come to rest.
And in the open arms of heart and home
I'll walk with you into the great unknown.
So, close your eyes and know you're not alone
Track Name: Josephine ~ Heather Waters
Josephine, raven black and shooting blue stars
Josephine, I would lay it all down just to be where you are
Said I been out walkin’ 50 stones in my shoes
I been tearin’ my heart out, just to rid me of you
Josephine, tell me what am I gonna do?

Josephine, cold and lonely October night
Josephine, I don’t things will be workin’ fine
Well, I been up walkin’ pacing holes in the floor
I can’t push this down anymore
Josephine, tell me what am I gonna do?

All night, all of my senses get swept away
All night, I keep hopin’ to rock these sins away
Rock them away

Well, I been out walkin’ 50 stones in my shoes
I been tearin’ my heart out, just to rid me of you
Josephine, tell me what am I gonna do?

All night, all of my senses get swept away
All night, I keep hopin’ to rock these sins away
Rock them away

Josephine, raven black and shooting blue stars
Josephine, I would lay it all down just to be
where you are
Track Name: Flood And Fire ~ Kirsten Proffit
TELL ME WILL I SEE YOUR FACE, WHEN THE SUN COMES UP?
WILL YOU POUR ME OUT YOUR HEART FROM YOUR COFFEE CUP?
WILL YOU BE THERE, WILL YOU BE THERE, WILL I FEEL YOUR FLAME?
WILL YOU BURN AWAY MY FEARS AND SHINE AWAY MY RAIN?

WHO WILL BE THERE THROUGH THE FLOOD AND FIRE
WHO WILL STAND WITH ME AND WALK THE WIRE?
COULD IT BE YOU?
NOTHING LEFT TO CHANCE, NO ONE LEFT TO BLAME
WHEN THERE’S NONE LEFT STANDING
WILL YOU REMAIN?

IF I’M SOMEWHERE DOWN THE ROAD WILL YOU CALL MY NAME
IF I MESS THIS UP AGAIN, WILL YOU TAKE THE BLAME?
WILL YOU BE THERE, WILL YOU BE THERE WILL YOU ALWAYS BELIEVE?
WILL YOU BE THERE THROUGH THE RISE AND FALL AND EVERYTHING BETWEEN?

WHO WILL BE THERE THROUGH THE FLOOD AND FIRE
WHO WILL STAND WITH ME AND WALK THE WIRE?
COULD IT BE YOU?
NOTHING LEFT TO CHANCE, NO ONE LEFT TO BLAME
WHEN THERE’S NONE LEFT STANDING
WILL YOU REMAIN?

WILL YOU BE THERE, WILL YOU BE THERE, IN MY TECHNICOLOR DREAMS?
SWIRLING YELLOW, GREEN AND BLUE, ALL MELTING INTO YOU.

WHO WILL BE THERE THROUGH THE FLOOD AND FIRE
WHO WILL STAND WITH ME AND WALK THE WIRE?
COULD IT BE YOU?
NOTHING LEFT TO CHANCE, NO ONE LEFT TO BLAME
WHEN THERE’S NONE LEFT STANDING
WILL YOU REMAIN….
Track Name: Believe ~ Jaime Wyatt
The past is such a bastard
I’m walkin through the glass of a shattered life
I’m tryin to move faster, so baby if I split then it’s no surprise

And I hope that I don’t have to have the answers, have to see the light
Have to have the answers tonight

Just gimme a chance, I’ll show you
Just gimme a chance, you’ll see
Anything is possible, all you’ve got to do is believe 
Just gimme a chance, I’ll show you
Just gimme a chance, you’ll see
Nothin is impossible, all you’ve go to do is believe

Despite the circumstances, I try to do the best with what they dealt me
And you may know me better than I know myself, at least for now

And you know, that you don’t have to have the answers, have to make it right
Have to have the answers tonight

Just gimme a chance, I’ll show you
Just gimme a chance, you’ll see
Anything is possible, all you’ve got to do is believe 
Just gimme a chance, I’ll show you
Just gimme a chance, you’ll see
Nothin is impossible, all you’ve go to do is believe

And now we see the sunrise, same old light through different eyes
The clouds that used to keep us, just drift away through open skies

Just gimme a chance, I’ll show you
Just gimme a chance, you’ll see
Anything is possible, all you’ve got to do is believe 
Just gimme a chance, I’ll show you
Just gimme a chance, you’ll see
Nothin is impossible, all you’ve go to do is believe

Just gimme a chance, just gimme a chance
All you’ve got to do is
Just gimme a chance, just gimme a chance
All you’ve to to do is believe 
Track Name: Broken ~ Julie Christensen
In the house of straw where we built our love
We could not care about how frail it was
Or how it took just a little shove
To remind us we could never nail it.
But you hold me close and I'm in my home
I feel it down to my aching bones

All my friends are broken
Some kind of way
Some are cracked wide open
Some come out okay.
There's no way of knowing
Who will break
It is not fair
I just keep on hoping
We are not beyond repair.

And the walls of stone that you built for years
They blocked the world and they held you in
And all it took was a spill of tears
To find the depth of the well you swim
But we've sent a rope, and you're coming home
To feel the warmth on your chilly bones

All my friends are broken
Some kind of way
Some are cracked wide open
Some come out okay.
There's no way of knowing
Who will break
It is not fair
I just keep on hoping
We are not beyond repair.
I just keep on hoping
We are not beyond repair.
Track Name: Somebody ~ Matt Keating
Somebody’s coffee cup
Somebody’s tooth brush
Somebody’s pocket change
Left behind in a rush

Nobody’s comin’ home
Somebody’s out of touch
Somebody’s out of time
Somebody’s left behind

Like rain on rain like sunshine on sunshine
I suited you, you suited me just fine
And all the time we had now it’s all mine
All mine

Nobody else will do
Nobody makes your sound
Somebody looked like you
Until they turned around

Somebody’s extra keys
Somebody’s wrist watch
Somebody’s guarantees
Left behind in the breeze
Track Name: Field Of Sorrow ~ Angela Easterling
Brother will bear a heavy burden and late at night he still calls my name.

He wants to throw his arms around me, no one can know my brother’s pain.

Father will bear a heavy burden and late at night he still calls my name.

He wishes somehow he could have saved me, no one can know my father’s pain.

For I’m bound to leave this field of sorrow, my work is done and it’s time to go.

But where I’m headed, you may not follow. There’s still a seed here that you must sow.

Mother will bear a heavy burden and late at night she still calls my name.

She longed to see me grow to a woman, no one can know my mother’s pain.

But my dear, dear family, I’m all around you. I hear you when you call my name.

I’m in the whispered breath of morning, the gentle touch of evening rain.

For I’m bound to leave this field of sorrow, my work is done and it’s time to go.

But where I’m headed, you may not follow. There’s still a seed here that you must sow.
Track Name: Snow ~ Celia Chavez
my window faces the north and the east
the morning sun wakes me
he won't give me peace
there's room here beside me
but i guess you know
if it weren't for the sun
we'd be watching the snow

through the bare branches
in skies bleached and bland
the airliners float as they ready to land
oh i know that people come and they go
but i thought by now
we'd be watching the snow

cold grey days
stole summer away by degrees
still i thought that we'd
find a way to fight off the freeze

caught the storm on our tongues
tried to melt them inside
but none of our wishes
could make winter die
it came with a bite
but none of the show
so i stand here alone
by my open window
missing your warmth
and watching for snow
Track Name: Think Of The Good Times ~ Ted Wulfers
Here we are on a starry night
Here I stand under the moonlight
I know it’s time but I don’t wanna
Say goodbye, say goodbye, my friend.

Yeah, you’re leavin’ and you gotta go
Where you’re headed, nobody knows
But I’ll see you again after my show
So goodbye, oh goodbye, until then.

Think of the good times
Think of the good times
Think of the good times we’ve had
Oh, together you and me, my friend.

It’s so hard to say I love you
It’s so hard to say goodbye.

In this life, we don’t have very long
We’re just driftin’ like the words of a song
But I’m doin’ my best, my best to be strong
An’ keep on keepin’ keep on keepin’ on. Remember

Think of the good times, think of the good times
Think of the good times we’ve had
Oh, together you and me, yeah forever you know we will be
And I will see you in the end.
