Track Name: Sticks & Stones
You’ve had the sticks and stones
But you’ve got steel in your bones
And now your heart ain’t alone
It’s drowning in a joy that overflows

You’ve got the love inside
In you the Lord confides
And as you lay your life down
His love will wrap itself around you saying-

Oh that’s what she deserves
There’s no greater love than a laid down life
And that’s what you deserve

Your heart is getting free
It starts to feel His beat
You follow - he leads
And His dust will settle on your feet

Hear the words he speaks
You’re worth the breath he breathed
He gave his blood so we could learn to breathe…
Track Name: For Love
This time, I’ll go anywhere my love
As far as I need to drive,
Though distance ain’t on my side
I’ll go anywhere for love

It’s not long, til both of our paths align,
Our fingers and hearts intertwined,
Then with our steps in time,
We’ll go anywhere my love

Anywhere, our steps are lead to fall
I’ll walk I’ll run I’ll crawl,
Three steps of footprints through it all
We’ll go anywhere my love
We’ll go anywhere my love
We’ll go anywhere for love

An old car, small towns and dusty roads,
People to get to know,
We’ll go where the wind says go,
We’ll go anywhere for love

Let’s take all we have, our hearts and the years left
And leave all the rest that ties us to our death
And take on the road, til God calls us home,
Let’s see where we can go
Track Name: Liquid Life
You are a mighty tree, I am a lowly weed,
All I want is on your leaves, it’s liquid life for me

I am an open hand, waiting for rain to land,
On my knees, a thirsty man, you’re liquid life for me

I can’t live without it…

You are the clouds that form
Over the ground so cracked and worn
Crying out please let it fall,
It’s liquid life for me

And you pour it out Lord,
It’s raining now, and you pour it out,
Your Love for me,
And I can’t contain it, I’m so saturated,
And my roots remain, and my leaves proclaim
You’re liquid life for me…
Track Name: Rocks & Rags
We’ve got our pockets full of rocks & rags
But we can’t seem to make ‘em shine
For the dirt on our hands
We’ve got our castles made of air and sand
But we’re no wiser than a washed up man
But luckily…

Grace ain’t leaving us behind
She loves me for another day
And when I can’t do nothing right
She loves me for it anyway
She puts her hand inside of mine
Grace ain’t leaving us behind

We’re bruised and beaten, our blackened faces raw
But we just keep on digging down
Til our backs are bent and sore
And our hands feel empty, unless they search for more
But we miss the hand that’s reaching down to save us all
But luckily…

Grace is leading…
Grace and mercy lead us home
