Track Name: Becoming a Great Forest
We are the reflection of every perfect day and every perfect night.
Every heartache, every sunset and sunrise.
Every imagination, every exploration.
Every ounce of innocence lost and every ounce of forgiveness gained.
We are the feeling of holding on and the feeling of letting go.
We are the summer evenings that last forever and the winter mornings that keep us home.
We are pleaded by the days to the death of remembrance.
With every touch of light, with every face that walks by.
Until each feeling becomes an embrace and we experience each other's lives unfold before our very eyes.
Until then, we are Beyonder.
Track Name: A Night of New Colors
As I walked into the open street, everyone I know stood watching me.
Stretching out their hands, they welcomed me into the warmth of a peaceful embrace; so much joy in this place.

Eyes raised up and ready to receive the sight of beauty and majesty.

Lights danced through the open sky creating patterns of perfection in every form and direction.
These glorious colors spread wide; heaven is here tonight.

Underneath the broad celestial sphere, we lay with our backs to the ground to soak it all in. Time is standing still. (x2)

We will remember this night forever.

Like every shell that whispers the ocean in your ear.
Like every soft breeze that clings tight to winter's leaf.
We will remember this night forever.
We are the heavy drifters.

The most refreshing night of my youth; it was all so perfect, life the way it should be. (x3)

What was just one night lasted a lifetime
Track Name: South Shore
I woke up here; Into the essence of some place beautiful. The sky was as gold and the colors of fall painted the clouds with a rhythm so perfect it would shake the ground.

Shake the ground.

How can this be real? I've never been here before, but in my heart it felt so familiar. My emotions were attached to the surroundings like roots to the ground. I was in so deep.

But the thought of it beating against me kept ringing out, shattering me to a powerful degree. I just wanted this to be the truth. I just wanted this to be the truth and not just a falsified shelter that in the end would leave me alone to face fear as an object on my own.

Cause when I was younger, the idea of all this was never imagined but it actually happened. Yeah, everything is coming together. So why do I still want something better? I know it sounds crazy, but it doesn't feel right. These South Shore emotions keep flooding my mind. Yeah, everything is right where I want it. But it feels like I'm just getting started.

How could perfection end up a lie?

I didn't doubt the things that I saw, only what was hard to believe. And I realize now.. that this was all a dream.

Cause when I was younger, the idea of all this was never imagined but it actually happened. Yeah, everything is coming together. So why do I still want something better? I know it sounds crazy, but it doesn't feel right. These South Shore emotions keep flooding my mind. Yeah, everything is right where I want it. But it feels like I'm just getting started.
Track Name: The Colorado
These memories mean so much more than I ever wanted for them to mean. How can I forget the impressions in the sunset, divided into colors, enhancing the mountains in the distance.

Such scattered emotions like large brush strokes still vividly impressed upon us. We sacrifice the details for a chance to hold on to what's left. These worn down, tender hearts will always beat with love and I want you to know that even if I could, I would never stop time forever.

Airplanes pass far overhead and you wish time was standing still, and you wish time was standing still. (x2)

So I sit back and let the flawless air engulf my lungs and let my eyes under stand the motion of swimming light. (x2)

Ideas for the past but so few for the future. You liked the way things were, and you don't want them to change. I'm so scared of what's to come. Afraid of what I don't know.

Biding my time. (x3)

Afraid of what I don't know.

I'm lost then found and lost again, but you never stop reaching.
You never stop reaching.

Corresponding late into the night with the understanding that there is a purpose. Understand that there is more. We're surrounded by worn out souls longing to feel vulnerable again, as tender hearts are watching.. waiting patiently for a beautiful life. Even distant memories make time stand still.

Distant memories make time stand still. (x4)

The sun sets and all the stars are out. Take a deep breath, eternity starts now. (x2)
Track Name: North Shore
Summer moves closer and I still feel the same. Things have changed but not like the way they said, at least not yet.

Cause I don't feel it anymore. No I don't feel it anymore.

These thoughts and feelings, they hold my head under water. I'll keep on running but I can't go on much longer.

Cause I'm anxious about everything in every way, present or past. I thought I could do this on my own but if I don't ask you for help, I'll end up alone. I'll end up alone.

Emotions are scattered, the skies are silent and dark. It's a feeling I can relate to, a sad impression that won't go away.

We'll keep on running until we reach the North Shore evenings. (x4)

But if this song ever leaves my mouth, then I'll know now that my younger self was right and the future would be proud.

And if I should forget how to trust you, then make my heart brand new. And when it all comes crashing down, the future will be proud. Yeah, the future will be proud.

Cause every year I am given a chance to start again. (x2)
Track Name: The Lost Pines
Searching for your reflection somewhere in our eyes as our hearts echo into fragile silence. Expressing myself, I choke every time. I am a balance of broken feelings and wishful thinking. I long for the past one day at a time, night after night..

Nostalgia forever

Can we, can we finish what we started? Can we find a way to stop the blows that broke us from the start?
Can we, can we finish what we started? (I'm not who I want to be) Can we find a way to stop the blows that broke us from the start? (Cause they keep coming down on me)

You polish every facet of my insecurities. Even when I try to hide my face, you promise.. you promised that everything would be alright.

I am changing colors. I am an iridescent tone. A city in my eyes. A quiet place inside the pines.

And if I say that this is impossible, I'll still be right where you led me. In the doorway of all my hopes and dreams.

I'm still waiting (x3)
..to let you in.

Stand taller. (x3)

Can we, can we finish what we started? Can we find a way to stop the blows that broke us from the start?
Can we, can we finish what we started? (I'm not who I want to be) Can we find a way to stop the blows that broke us from the start? (Cause they keep coming down on me)

I search for inspiration somewhere between the clouds, the power lines and the pines. Your grace perfected a vision and I am surrounded by evergreens. Now I can stand taller.

I am the clouds. (x2)

I am the heavy drifter.
