Track Name: Where You Are
If I could fill my soul, if I could never drive and make it home, yeah
If I should look to the light, and see a bright star shining bright
I'd say home, is where you are, yeah home, is where you are

(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)

If I could do what you did to me, to show a love that's true and set you free
I'd say, hand me your last cigarette
If I could write a song and sing it twice, for you to stay with me I'd do it right
Id say bring me my guitar
For its a long road, a long road to be a star
Yeah It's a long road, a long road to where you are

(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)

If I could be another friend in need, in need of happiness and to be free
I'd say you are the strength I need, yes you are the strength I need

So close your eyes, come back to me, I need you now
If only you could read my mind, and feel my heart, and breath my love

If you would wait for me on my porch, and I would listen to you, oh my lord
I would cry, for you are finally mine
Track Name: Heart of Oak
I know this road, is much too long,
For us to go, out on our own
And though there's pain, and our strength is gone,
Ill hold your hand, till the war is won

Keep my heart near yours, and our eyes on the road

And side by side, I will meet your eyes,
Ill keep you free, and safe, safe from demise
A change in pace, this fire will rise,
We run proud and free, hear our battle cry, yeah!

Keep my heart near yours, and our eyes on the road

(Ooh ooh ooh ooh)

Keep my heart near yours, and our eyes on the road
Track Name: London
I feel it in my bones today, a fire calls my heart away
I’ll leave this ground and earth and say, life lived at home is such a waste
But I know it's hard when the road is far, I know it's hard when the road is far

A heavy mind a beating heart, I am in need of a new start
Didn't pay for things I didn't take, but judged by those who sealed my fate
I cry, I plead my innocence to those who say, I'm a dead man walking away

Ill burn this home down, move away, the smoke and ash will clear a way
For this ol' heart to travel down, I'll make my way to London Town
And I, I'll be a going now, I'll make It home, my worlds on fire I'm lost in desire oh!
But I know it's hard when the road is far
Track Name: Through Darkened Caves
For love was made to set you free, from the fires and the folly of your darkest dreams
To be who you were made to be, yeah yeah yeah

Love, I know it's ok, we will always find a way
To stay alive, fight through the pain, all is gone but the start of the day
There is hope in the start of the day

For love was made to set you free, from the fires and the folly of your darkest dreams
To be who you were made to be, yeah yeah yeah

A piece of mind, a sovereign sigh, a joy that comes and goes with the rain
For we will walk through darkened caves, where light is gone but hope remains
The light is gone but hope still remains

For love was made to set you free, from the fires and the folly of your darkest dreams
To be who you were made to be, yeah yeah yeah!

For love was made to set you free, from the fires and the folly of your darkest dreams
To be who you were made to be, yeah yeah yeah

And we will find the truth inside, a mystery of the love that triumphs over night
Together with the love of the light, yeah yeah yeah
Track Name: This I Know
(Ohhhhhh)

Child you're as lonely as a starless night, a night, the black of death, that found your mothers eyes
Mothers eyes, mothers eyes, mothers eyes, mothers eyes

Swiftly make your way down to the open grove, wait and you will find what you are looking for
Looking for, looking for, looking for, looking for

Keep your path as narrow as the eagle flies, the meadows viscous snares intended for demise
To fade your life, as day to night, to fade your life, as day to night

The pride of man, it leads to anger and disgrace, be humble lest you come to share your fathers fate
Fathers fate, fathers fate, fathers fate, fathers fate

(Ohhhhhh) This I know, this I know, yeah this I know, this I know
Track Name: Virtues
If we were still friends, if we could forget hurt,
If we didn't end, I would hear you
I'd listen to your, stories of life, and death.
And I'd stay by your side, till the end

And I love you (oh woah) and I miss you (oh woah)
But I hate you (oh woah) for you don't) love me anymore

And if you were an ocean, waving to the shore
And I were the coastline, you'd swallow me whole
And I'd still say sorry, for getting you dry,
even as I was drowning, in your sea of lies

For I love you (oh woah) and I miss you (oh woah)
But I hate you (oh woah for you don't) love me anymore

And I'm sorry, about the ways that I hurt you
And how I destroyed all my virtues, and sent you to dismay
But you liar, you took the love that we shared and threw it away like
Nothing, like you could just care less

But I love you (oh woah) and I miss you (oh woah)
But I hate you (oh woah for you don't) love me anymore
