Homecoming 03:23
there is a place where my heart is glad 'midst the trees and the forests of the place I had and there is a place where my soul still sings through the toil and the tumult for the joy it brings that is home where waves crash upon the shoreline and it snows and there are streets where my memories dance to the music of our friendship and a young romance and in these times when I'm close to tears the sweet melodies of home will embrace my fears that is home where waves crash upon the shoreline and it snows that is home

Blossom Tree 03:29
fairy tales whispered under summer skies you lost your footing in her deep blue eyes but her lips were closed and your soul was numbed by pride so you walked away, a lonely man swore you wouldn't let yourself love again never let your heart mistake affection for a friend but life is made for joy and the heart is made for love yes, life is made for joy and this beating heart is rushing with love the days go by, so the story goes but you'll found more love then you thought you'd ever know through the veil of tears, what's true takes time to grow and the beloved sings under the blossom tree hurry my love, will you marry me the day is young and our spirits they are free
3.
Hyssop 04:36
will you walk with me through sorrow's garden far from the maddening crowd where boughs hang low with fruit untold and where the face is bare 'neath the shroud will you walk with me through sorrow's garden where the heart beats with blood and with fire and where soul is exposed and where hyssop grows where the flame burns bright with desire will you walk with me through sorrow's garden? come, take my trembling hand where the pain is shown seeds of healing are sown for this time of darkness will end
4.
if truth be told it is hard to love harder to endure the cost it will take and if truth be told patience is a virtue and the skill required makes the grown man break but this fertile ground was watered by the tears of our past and planted by scarred hands these seeds dug deep will last and what can i give other than who i am but i fear i don't have enough for what this costs and my words they cut deeper than i'd like them to so show me how to find what we have lost
