Track Name: Chasing Dreams
The sun kept hiding, behind a cloud
Thinking it could, disavow
The games it tried to play on me
I wasn’t fooled, I could see

But even when I’m over shadowed
Blanketed and left in the shallows
I won’t let my focus be
Overrun or ill conceived

Chasing dreams both day and night
While I sleep and in the sunlight
Chasing dreams because I have to hope
One day I’ll make it, back to the coast

There’s something about this concrete wasteland
Subtle and loud I continue to withstand
All the noise and calamity
Together we’ll get lost, in this uncertainty

Chasing dreams both day and night
While I sleep and in the sunlight
Chasing dreams because I have to hope
One day I’ll make it, back to the coast

Oooooooo, Ooooo
Ooooooooo, Oooooo
Oooooooo, Ooooooo
Ooo, oo, oo oooo

Chasing dreams both day and night
While I sleep and in the sunlight
Chasing dreams because I have to hope
One day I’ll make it, back to the coast
Chasing dreams both day and night
While I sleep and in the sunlight
Chasing dreams because I have to hope
One day I’ll make it, back to the coast
Track Name: Build It Higher
Working nights and sleeping days
Might not be healthy, but I need the pay
Won’t let my focus stray
It’s just a start to these early days

Cause I’m on a mission now
And I can feel momentum pulling me round
The ball is rolling now let it
Bring you to that sound

These days all I’ve felt is tired,
Working hard to build the fire
To keep it stoked is half the battle
The other half, is build it higher

Build up the love and not those walls
Climb over mountains small or tall
I know once the job is done
Won’t be distracted by anyone

These days all I’ve felt is tired,
Working hard to build the fire
To keep it stoked is half the battle
The other half, is build it higher
Build it higher
Build it higher

Well I know sometimes
You can feel the pressure
And I know sometimes
It feels harder than ever
But I know deep down
It won’t last forever
It won’t last forever

These days all I’ve felt is tired,
Working hard to build the fire
To keep it stoked is half the battle
The other half, is build it higher
Build it higher
Build it higher
Track Name: Hold Me True (Hold Me Fast)
Time is quick and time is slow
Before you know it’s touch and go
I miss the way you sing at home
And live your life in love and hope
Keep me hidden from the dark
Guard the light inside my heart

You bring out the best in me
Only love and integrity
Take away insecurity
Nothing wrong with a little crazy
Keep me hidden from the dark
Guard the light inside my heart

Hold me true and hold me fast
Won’t forget about the past
I was told to make it last
Hold me true and hold me fast

Trying hard to hold onto
That authentic sense of you
Black or blue, you’re still true
Love and affection through and through
Keep me hidden from the dark
Guard the light inside my heart

Hold me true and hold me fast
Won’t forget about the past
I was told to make it last
Hold me true and hold me fast

Ooooooo, oooooo
I never ran away
I wasn’t looking for the great escape
I never meant to stray
I still think of you each day
I love you all the same
I love you all the same

Hold me true and hold me fast
Won’t forget about the past
I was told to make it last
Hold me true and hold me fast
Hold me true and hold me fast
Won’t forget about the past
I was told to make it last
Hold me true and hold me fast
Track Name: Turn The Dark On
Whirling, whirling, round my mind
I’m not sure where to start or stop with your kind
I kept doing more damage than good
Kept pressing restart more than I should

My heart is bruised and battered
But won’t be torn apart
It was fun at first, but lonely later
So different now from the start

So turn the dark on honey
Take me out of this mess
Pull the covers up honey
Hide my eyes from this unrest

I’ve been searching for a second spark
Something fresh and new to reignite the dark
Maybe, it’s better to let it come when ready
Let the light seep in, slow and steady
Slow and steady

So turn the dark on honey
Take me out of this mess
Pull the covers up honey
Hide my eyes from this unrest

Ooooooo

So turn the dark on honey
Take me out of this mess
Pull the covers up honey
Hide my eyes from this unrest
So turn the dark on honey
Take me out of this mess
Pull the covers up honey
Hide my eyes from this unrest
