Track Name: When The Fates Came
When The Fates Came

A famous shade of grey coming around again
A quiet rage that is making its sound again

When the fates came and destroyed me
When the choice was made to set your soul free
I knew right then no one could save me
So I laid in the water that would take me down

What lies beneath is almost darker than grieving
So day by day I get closer to leaving

Maybe I have learned the hard way
Maybe I can’t see an always
All I trusted, all I wanted
Was taken away
Track Name: When The Fates Came (Piano-Vocal)
When The Fates Came

A famous shade of grey coming around again
A quiet rage that is making its sound again

When the fates came and destroyed me
When the choice was made to set your soul free
I knew right then no one could save me
So I laid in the water that would take me down

What lies beneath is almost darker than grieving
So day by day I get closer to leaving

Maybe I have learned the hard way
Maybe I can’t see an always
All I trusted, all I wanted
Was taken away
Track Name: All I Am
All I Am

This is a lost place
This is the end
This is a lost space
I won’t go back

I never wanted
To see this go
In a night sky
All I need to know

Still I go on
And I remain
I go on
But ever changed
This seems to be all I am
Now
All I am now
Now
All I am
All I am
All I can be
All I can
All I can be
Be now
It is a place
It is a life
A life?
Track Name: Broken Circle
Broken Circle

Said a man to his son, to his daughters
“I may not have been what you needed.
But underneath this armor I’m your father
And I want to make this right.”

Traveled all these miles for another chance
Hopeful for some closure where it’s needed
He says “Let me say my peace
That is all I ask.
Then do what you will with it.”

How do we mend a circle that is broken?
How can we undo the past?
How do we change the words that have been spoken?
How can we manage that?
How do I find a way to make you hear me?
How do I make you believe?
That all I want now is to bring this family back?

Said the father to his children, “I’m sorry.
Maybe those two words can build a bridge.
And maybe if you’ll let me
I can show you
That I care too much to let go of this.”
Track Name: A Long Time
A Long Time

All I want to know is that you’re all right
I know it’s been a long time
Since I’ve been around
But that changes now

You don’t have to hide your pain from me
I want to understand what you see
You don’t have to hide your pain from me anymore

I don’t know where the time has gone
How I stayed out of your life so long
Now we’re strangers bound by blood
But I’m here for you now
Track Name: Claws On Wood
Claws On Floors

In the dead of night
I came to you
I couldn’t imagine where you’d gone to
So I stayed awake for a while
To see if you’d run

You could not be worse cats right now than you are
You’re playing with the blinds and running around our house
When I’m trying to work

And the worst part about going as it comes
Is you cannot start again
When they fill it up with sound

And the claws on wood
And claws on blinds
They made me pretend that I was in another place
Where they were not

But it is our home, it happens sometimes
That your lives bleed into my
My song

And I will never be there again
I will never be the one that’s in your head
Making no sense now
Not like I ever was

You said that I wouldn’t win
That you would always know the end

I hope it all came out all right
You couldn’t have waited five more minutes
To do that
I’m sure it was emergency time
And now this is a waste of all my time
And a waste of the words inside my mind
