Track Name: It Won't Hurt
It Won’t Hurt
Words and Music by Adam Lockwood

Life has a way of taking
Everything away that you hold dear
I may be uncertain but
I’m certain that she’s taking me away from here

My mother and my father couldn’t
Keep things together like they vowed
The only thing that’s certain is that
Everyone you love will let you down

And if you’re leaving me
Then I’m leaving you first
So it won’t hurt

Ain’t it funny how a place
Where you’ve never been can feel like home
If home is where the heart is
I’ll follow mine wherever it may go

And if you’re leaving me
Then I’m leaving you first
So it won’t hurt

Seems like my loyalties
Are just letting me down
Just like everyone else
I’m out for myself

‘Bout the time you feel settled
Is the time when everything will change
So tie your knots loosely ‘cause
No one ever, ever stays the same

And if you’re leaving me
Then I’m leaving you first
So it won’t hurt
Track Name: Secrets
Secrets
Words and Music by Adam Lockwood

Say, say anything
Just hold your tongue
If you don’t mean it

Take, take my hand
And lead me
I need redeeming

When you see me, hold me close
Because

Darkness hides the dawn
Inside my wandering heart
And all my secrets
I can’t stand the light
For what it shows inside
And all my secrets

Where, where have you been
I’ve been needing
I need your healing

Wait, wait for me there
Beside the
Dark water’s edge

When you see me, hold me close
Because

Don’t wait up for me
I’m faltering way too easy
Breathe in and breathe out
It’s all I can do now
To keep my head above the ground
Track Name: 100 Years (The Carver)
100 Years and 100 more
I’ve been lying at Death’s door
All their names I write in stone
And in their graves I lay their bones

Believe in me
Please believe in me
There’s no escape
On this your dying day

Now God’s child lend me your hand
And I’ll guide you to the promised land
Now I lay thee down to sleep
To gaze upon the glassy sea

Believe in me
Please believe in me
There’s no escape
On this your dying day

Let not fear guide your heart
‘twas insincere from the start

Believe in me
Please believe in me
There’s no escape
On this your dying day
Track Name: Oh My Stars
Oh My Stars
words and music by C. Adam Lockwood

Baby, I’m waiting for all of this to end
Tell me a story so I can pretend
None of this is real, none of this is real

Come away with me
To the Sea of Tranquility
We’ll sail among the stars
Far as the eye can see
All of this is ours

The World is burning, let’s make our escape
I have to admit I’m tired of this place
Let’s get away from here, Let’s get away from here

Come away with me
To the Sea of Tranquility
We’ll sail among the stars
Far as the eye can see
All of this is ours

Oh my stars
Oh my stars
Oh my stars
Fall for you

3, 2, 1, ignition; we’re off and away
One cosmic bullet hurtling through space
Two hearts beat as one, two hearts beat as one.

Come away with me
To the Sea of Tranquility
We’ll sail among the stars
Far as the eye can see
All of this is ours
Track Name: The Family Tree
Family Tree
words and music by Adam Lockwood

I stand by the side of the road
Watch people come and go
You always emptied your canteen

I dig my roots in the sand
Hold on to what I can
And let the wind wash over me

Oh...

In the wind I sway
My branches bend and break
And tumble to the ground

The tempest tears my leaves
Stripped and bear I plead
For peace to rain down

And the winds of mercy carry my seeds
To a distant land far from me
I pray that love will forever watch over you
As you’ve cared for me

While other trees may fall
I will stand tall
Because you’ve given me a drink

When the storm has passed
We will see what lasts
And that love has carried me

And the winds of mercy carry my seeds
To a distant land far from me
I pray that love will forever watch over you
As you’ve cared for me
Track Name: A Soul Divided
A Soul Divided
Words and Music by Adam Lockwood

I love and I hate
I’m asleep and awake
With nothing to soothe me

I give and I take
I’ve got nothing to say
But I scream it loudly

I’m up and I’m down
Like I’m riding on clouds
The Earth sinking beneath me

I’m loose and I’m bound
With my feet on the ground
But my mind escapes me

I’m a walking contradiction
Of fiction and fact
I’m a man with two faces
Both calm and conflicted
Look at me, a soul divided
Take a good look at me

With one breath I bless
And I curse with the next
My thoughts betray me

I kill and create
I’m honest and fake
Both fixed and fleeting
