Track Name: No Orphan
In these cycle raging frantic winds
I’m a child whose heart believes
There’s a Spirit I’ve received
Who sets me free

I feel a current flowing through
A whistling speaking deep within
A breathing gust that has me blooming
With brand new wings designed for destinies of wind
The storms without aren’t stronger than the one I’ve
found within

I’m never out of place
But justified in faith
High above mistakes my soul is safe

In these cycle raging frantic winds
I’m a child whose heart believes
There’s a Spirit I’ve received
Who sets me free

The frantic winds erode the breakable
A different current mends the weak
By grafting us into the vortex
Wherein an endless Word will speak

“Fall to your knees, I’ll give you wings
With Me you’ll sail the winds with ease”
Love released blood for peace

In these cycle raging frantic winds
I’m a child whose heart believes
There’s a Spirit I’ve received
Who sets me free

And I am No Orphan

So take these open sails to violent winds
I can sail the skies with ease

Cause You delivered me
Turned my war to peace.
And when all strife has ceased
There’s You.

And I am No Orphan.
Track Name: Terminal 3
Dear darling,
I hope you’re smiling
That look of yours that only you can do
It’s been a while since you’ve been here with me
And I forget to breathe
Thinking of all we’ve been through
Cause you break me
And yet you save me
It’s just a part of being who you are
I was glad to be the one you need
And that’s what I’ll be
Even when we change our hearts

Let go
I let go of all illusions of control
I’ll bet my soul, your hand I’ll hold
Until you need some room to grow
If you stay with me or you’re running free
The best thing I can be is what you need

You sweet thing
With your heart beating
I felt it say, when you were in my arms
That you’d never want to set me free
From your grip on me
Never want to be apart
Now I’m waving
Your face is fading
I left you at the gates there and you flew
We both know that we’ve been told to go
Leave all that we’ve known
For the One who’s ever true.

Let go
I let go of all illusions of control
I’ll bet my soul, your hand I’ll hold
Until you need some room to grow
If you stay with me or you’re running free
The best thing I can be is what you need.

Always, always, always, I will hold you in my heart
I know this, I know this step is a new start
You say I’m “just a friend”, I say a friend’s a friend indeed
‘Cause from the three things that remain
We have the greatest of these
Track Name: Landscapes
Morning starlight, won’t you shine?
Everyone’s awake.
I’ve been waiting quite some time
For all these clouds to break
But there’s a truth I’ll have to face
When you shine your light on this place
And then the confidence I've found
Will vanish with no trace.

Shrinking in the depths of space

I’m left to wonder how the sun rose
On that day we were exposed
As wreckage heaped in dust and smoke
Rising from the hearts that broke.
Now I know what we built won’t stand
If we refuse to hold the hand
That fits this pain in greater plans
That we can’t understand

With begging hands, we stumble through
This landscape of dismay
And let our weary eyes take in
The war torn fields of yesterday
Where once we felt the urgency
Of struggle for that breakneck pace
And built the ruins of squandered wealth
That mock the now decrepit race
I’d say that was faith misplaced

I’m left to wonder how the sun rose
On that day we were exposed
As wreckage heaped in dust and smoke
Rising from the hearts that broke.
Now I know what we built won’t stand
If we refuse to hold the hand
That fits this pain in greater plans
That we can’t understand

Morning starlight, won’t you shine?
Everyone’s awake
Morning dawns for light to shine
On everyone’s mistakes
But the light that dawns is grace

I’m left to wonder where the sun goes
Those days when it will not show
The light that opens weary eyes
Blind from watching midnight skies.
I know this fate is none too grand
And I might never understand,
But though He slay me I will trust
My Father and His plan
He holds me in His hand.
Track Name: Like A Light
I walked through your door on the first day that we met
You were sitting on the top bunk of your bed
I can’t remember the first words that we said
But I won’t forget the day I met my best friend

‘Cause you were bright like the Light of our searching hearts
There’s a Light shining bright where this story starts
From the school to the city we played our part
While the Light, shining bright, shone into our hearts.

The ups and downs came, the wrong mixed with the right
I stood by your side, and you stood right by mine
Somehow we drifted with choices that we made
I felt the distance when you felt so far away.

But you would shine like the light of a holy heart
Half way around the world for their broken hearts
Lifting high Jesus Christ, who has from the start
Held our hearts together even when we drift apart.

So I will not forget the day that we first met
And I won’t regret the ups and downs
That come to truest friends
I’ll bet that one day we’ll look back from God knows where we’ll be Knowing the One who called us into light Is all we’ll ever need

So you shine like a light and it’s who you are
Cause you shine with the Light of a holy heart
On the day that I find that we’re far apart
Still you’ll shine like a light and you’ll warm my heart
Track Name: The Cave Diver
Too soon, too soon
He swam full speed across the sea of doom
His worry paid no heed to sick and storming seas
Above, below, in waves he’d flow
And refuse to be unfree

The breaking man found strength to lift his head
Until he took his final dive descending to the dead
And though he’s gone I will make sure
The life he lived remains
And shine the light he made for his dark caves
By living for today.

I’ve heard it said “there is no more reward”
For walking dust is ever drawn back to its source
And shades in shadowed sleep are perished memories
A common destiny we must defeat before we sleep

The breaking man found strength to lift his head
Until he took his final dive descending to the dead
And though he’s gone I will make sure
The life he lived remains
And shine the light he made for his dark caves
By living for today.

From in the darkest depths the surface seems so bleak
Yet underneath the diving deep
In darkness light still speaks

You’re not gone away from my memory
In my life I’ll choose to dive in deep.

Your spirit breaks, your body bows its head
And we entrust your fate unto the Firstborn of the Dead
And hope that in His mercy we might yet see you again
In a better body than the one
That showed us you were brave

You’re not gone away from my memory
In my life I’ll choose to dive in deep.
