Track Name: Long Dark Hallelujah
I carry a heavy load on my shoulders
Can scarce remember when skies were blue
Now the shadows cover everything you do

Masquerading up on that high ground
Is it true freedom still rings?
When the curtain rises no one’s coming clean

Watch them turn against one another
A house divided, it will not stand
Self righteous ways are going to tear apart this land

Turn a blind eye to all our troubles
Lord who will catch us when we descend?
It’s a long dark hallelujah ‘till the end
Track Name: All Along
I didn’t deal your cards, my conscience clean you’re journeying afar
For what your fortune brings, you followed it so far
Through darkened days, forgetting who you are

Don’t tell me that nothing’s gonna change
And we’ll remain the same all along
I can’t see what’s over the horizon but the clouds they are a rolling in
Guess you’re gonna win

That last cold winter night, you pulled me by the fire and asked what it felt like
To lose something that you held so tight
Your words cut like a knife, when you said I’m to blame

Don’t tell me that nothing’s gonna change
And we’ll remain the same all along
I can’t see what’s over the horizon but the clouds they are a rolling in
Guess you’re gonna win

I won’t follow you in the shape you’re in
Guess you’re gonna win
I won’t follow you
Track Name: Right My Wrongs
When the sun goes down I’ll be righting all my wrongs
Oh when the sun goes down I’ll be righting all my wrongs
I’ll tell you something darlin’, I ain’t never meant to do you no wrong

When the river is raging you’d better hold on tight
Oh when the river is raging you’d better hold on tight
‘Cuz if you pay no mind it’s gonna pull you down into the dark night

When the storms roll in, level everything you know
Oh when the storms roll in, level everything you know
You ain’t done no wrong, but now you’ve got no place to call home

I feel it coming closer, everyone is unsure of what to do
We’ve got to come together, it’s time we come together
In what we do
Track Name: What This Could Be
If I had a million dollars
You’d be right here next to me
I’d put you on the fastest plane
You’d be touching down by three

You don’t have to say you’re sorry
For things you didn’t mean
I see right through those burning eyes
Something softer underneath

There comes a point of no return
So tell me what you want from me
I’ll tell you what I imagine this could be
I only want to be with you

You know I want you to be happy
When trying days are through
I’ll walk with you through valleys low
We’ll come out high in June
Track Name: Mountain Sun
Can you feel the mountain sun? It’s gonna tell you where to run
Over the hillside under the blue skies, it feels good to be alive
It feels good to be alive

I found a light in this dark and weary night
A flicker in the shadows we could barely breathe
I found a light in this dark and weary night
It keeps calling out to me

When the moon is on the rise
You’re gonna stare into my eyes
Tell me everything that you hope and dream
To have and hold before you die

We turn the corner, an open road ahead
We write our own stories from beginning to the end

Can you feel the morning sun? It’s gonna tell you where to run
Over the hillside under the blue skies, it feels good to be alive
It feels good to be alive
Track Name: After The Blame
Back again
You swore you’d never show your face
After the trouble and the pain
You know I’m not counting blame

Lose yourself
And someday you will find
Your face on the other side of the mirror
Everything is clear

Walk away
Hands already on the door
Can’t be satisfied no more
What a shame when there’s no one to blame

Raise your flag
This time we’ll give it all we got
And hope that it’s enough
To keep our hearts from falling apart
