Track Name: Harmless
This is grown folks music baby
and I ain't afraid to say it
See I'm tryin' to be polite
and I hope I get it right
If you ever had the notion
for some lovin' and devotion
I got that magic potion and I promise you it's harmless

so if
If you wanna roll
I'm ready to go
If you wanna ride
well that could be so nice
if you wanna see me baby
well this line here's important
forget what you've been thinking and know that love is harmless

I know you're scared of all the ghosts that's in your past
relationships gone bad - and the ones that didn't last
but I can guarantee when you reach out in the darkness
This house was never haunted and I promise you it's harmless

so if
If you wanna roll
I'm ready to go
If you wanna ride
well that could be so nice
You need to know
You're the star on my red carpet
forget what you've been thinking
and know that this love is harmless

I think it's safe to say that we both have paid our dues
Highly explosive love
but we chose to light the fuse
Let's take a cruise for two on water that's uncharted
forget what you been thinking girl, see this love will be harmless

so if
If you wanna roll
I'm ready to go
If you wanna ride
well that could be so nice
I don't know what kind of fool would throw away a fortune
but I'll gladly take his portion
and show you love is harmless

Ride with me
Roll with me Baby
Be with me

Oooh you ain’t gotta worry bout
no ghosts getting hold of you
The only thing bumpin and grindin’ in the night
gon’ be us two
I hope these walls
ain’t too thin in this apartment
Cause we gon’ make some noise
As soon as we get started
Track Name: Someone is You f/Avery Sunshine
We live in a world with heartache and pain
Searching for sun to drive out the rain
but once in a while you’ll come to depend
on someone who you rightfully call a friend

And I’m happy that I found someone in life
That brings me balance when my days ain’t going right
Someone that's honest, I can count on for some truth
I’m thankful for someone and that someone is you

We share a bond that’s almost surreal
and I feel secure when you’re at the wheel
Needless to say I know that you care yeah
cause I don’t even have to ask and you always appear

As long as you’re involved
I know that I’ve got nothing to fear
Just as sure as there’s stars in the sky
You shine so bright I see you from here

I’m thankful for you

And I’m happy that I found someone in life
That brings me balance when my days ain’t going right
Someone that's honest, I can count on for some truth
I’m thankful for someone and that someone is you

When I needed a hand
You were a friend yeah
When I needed to smile
You brought the sunshine in my life
I don’t want for nothing
Long as I’ve got you as my friend
Track Name: Find a Way
Broken heart
Pain and scars
What am I 'sposed to do?
Raise my guard
Build my walls
Nothing is getting through
I laid my defenses
To keep myself safe
Thought love had no interest in me
And all my mistakes

What I’ve come to find is
when you need some help
Love will find a way
It’s when you least expect it that
your life will truly change

Cupid's bow
Steady now
Aim and take it slowly
If this arrow
should miss it's mark
I guess I'll just be lonely
I’ve built up resistance to everything new
So I need some assistance so I
Can let some one through

What I’ve come to find is
when you need some help
Love will find a way
It’s when you least expect it that
your life will truly change

I was always taught
that love was a game for fools
to fall into
Never thought that you’d come and change the rules
Wasted so much of my life tryna make a move
afraid to lose
Till the day that you came to my rescue
Now what I’ve come to find in you

What I’ve come to find is
when you need some help
Love will find a way
It’s when you least expect it that
your life will truly change
Track Name: Pieces
One foot in the ground
Can't hold down a job
quite the way I used to
No no oh oo oh
So scared of the dark
I fold my hands to God
And pray that I'm still useful
So so oh oo oh
Seems like only yesterday
everything was restin’ in it's proper place
‘Strong wind came from miles away
and it looks as if it's truly tryna stay here

And it gets hard pickin’ up the pieces
I can’t do this by myself
I need someone to help
Cause it's so hard pickin’ up the pieces
though they seem so out of place
I can't throw none away

Thousand days of road
Picture’s still not clear
Fragments that don't fit together
What are they doing here
If I keep fallin' down
I'll need a diagram
to help me examine
Who I really am
With no one else around
Who's fault is it now
Should I blame it on the doubt
or just scream out really loud

With all of these pieces
Still can't find no peace yet
I stretch out my fingers
but it’s just beyond reach

And it gets hard pickin’ up the pieces
I can’t do this by myself
I need someone to help
Cause it's so hard pickin’ up the pieces
though they seem so out of place
I can't throw none away

So I look out on my window pane
Dustin’ off my cold remains
Hope to catch a second wind
So I can be whole again
Watching the world as it divides
unequal opposing sides
puzzled pieces pose as men
so I guess ‘til then
I’ll keep pickin’ em up
I’ll be pickin’ em up
Track Name: Wonders
This world this world, ain't all roses no
I realize everyday
and the grass that stands between us
can at times be less than green once
it's been fertilized by some pain
Oh I thought we'd beat it all
so I never prepared myself to rebuild after the fall no
I still don't understand - all that is or will be
but the loss I feel is real because of what
you meant to me

If I had my way
I woulda held you so much longer
If I had my way
I woulda never let you go
If I had my way
nothing in life will last forever
so I'm really glad that I had the chance to know
the wonders of you

When I sit back and think about all the time we shared
I know I'm one of the lucky ones cause I had you near
Guess I'm just selfish
cause instead of these memories
I'm wishing that you would walk in and wake me from this dream
Oh Winter won't be the same no more no
Summer won't be the same for sure now
Spring and Fall, Lord knows can't provide the cure
but knowing that you're in a better place
gives me strength to endure

If I had my way
I woulda held you so much longer
If I had my way
I woulda never let you go
If I had my way
nothing in life will last forever
so I'm really glad that I had the chance to know
the wonders of you

Sure as life has ups and it's downs
Angels can't be kept on the ground no
so until the next time we meet
I'll finish up the work down here that you left for me

If I had my way
I woulda held you so much longer
If I had my way
I woulda never let you go
If I had my way
nothing in life will last forever
so I'm really glad that I had the chance to know
the wonders of you

The sky won't get no bluer
Ooh those clouds can't stand
They won't stand a chance again your
sunny rays that you send me
Like a beautiful song within me
and I can sing it as true cause I know someone like you

What did I do to know
Someone like you
Never forget all the
Things we been through
I fell down before and you
helped me get through
So I know that where you’re standing now you got a
Wonderful view
Track Name: All I Ask
I don't wanna look back now
Even if the sky falls down
I don't wanna meet the wind that might just turn these sails around
Even when the sign says no
I’ll find another way to go
Till I settle back on solid ground
When the outside world tells you it’s all over
But your insides know there’s much more to do
when the weight’s more than what fits on your shoulder
You’ll press on cause there’s nothing left to lose

I don't know which way we’re facing
Heaven or earth’s invitation
Only a moment of greatness’s
All I need and all I'm asking for
Hoping that we're not mistaken
And these aren't windmills we're chasing
History here in the making’s
All I need and all I'm asking for

Got me starrin’ in the darkess
but I’m going in regardless
Ain’t no way they’re gonna keep my spirit or this message underground
never wanted any violence
but I gotta break the silence
Gonna settle this one right here and now
When the answer calls you to be a soldier
In a war that spares no one from it’s view
In the days before we can say it’s over
Everyone has a side they’ve gotta choose

I don't know which way we’re facing
Heaven or earth’s invitation
only a moment of greatness’s
All I need and all I'm asking for
Hoping that we're not mistaken
And these aren't windmills we're chasing
history here in the making’s
All I need and all I'm asking for

I’ll do whatever whatever whatever whatever whatever it takes

Signs might point to the sky
And we gonna follow the light
Signs might point to the ground
Well we don't pay them no mind
Send my voice to the clouds
And turn the volume up high
Turn it up now
