Holding 03:31
Holding By Rachel Stevener I do not know which way to turn The right, the left seem equal roads The answer cloaked in mystery Makes it hard to trust in things unseen CHORUS But the hills keep rolling And the wind keeps blowing And you keep holding me tight The high hour seems far away I can’t move myself to try again Then you tell me trying’s not the key No wonder I am weeping CHORUS I dreamt about your loving arms Soothing all my careless scars I wake up to a brighter dawn And realize my longings point me home CHORUS
Lose Your Love By Rachel Stevener Like a lighthouse on the watch for stranded ships You rescue me from drowning in my head You draw out words from my silent hesitations You know my thoughts even when they go unsaid CHORUS But when I wear ugly faces and I hurt you And when the newness of our love has come and gone You remind me that this is something we can work through And there’s nothing I can do to lose your love. Like a train track in the middle of an ocean Your kind of love is impossible to find You say you’d trade every woman for my favor All the things you say make me feel so alive CHORUS Cause when I am with you the world gets smaller Still I know that we will fight and we’ll shove But you remind me that this is something we can work through And there’s nothing I can do to lose your love. Pour the water, baby, I am washed away in you Pour the water, baby, I’m sinking into you Pour the water, I can feel it in my bones That there is nothing I can do to lose your love
Inside Out 04:05
INSIDE OUT By Rachel Stevener I asked the sky for sun today But the sky decided rain Was the better way to make things grow I know the promises you’ve kept But knowing me I’ll soon forget The way you work for good not happiness I’ve been fighting in the sand Tripping over all my plans CHORUS I’m reading in the dark Mislabeling the parts Undone by things I can’t change Misguided from the start I need a brand new heart I’m wounded from the inside out I stake my claim on all I need And set you up for hide and seek And if you prove too difficult to find I’ll look for someone who is not A giver who will give a lot Of exactly what I’m craving Give me just another day To try to prove I’m more than clay CHORUS I love you so well in my dreams Reality’s a poor mans scheme CHORUS
The Trees 04:27
The Trees By Rachel Stevener Waking up, you feel the bowling ball on your chest Even eight hours won’t give you rest And you feel a little helpless today Walking out to face the world with sullen eyes The heaviness gets pushed aside Because the giants in your life tell you they deserve to be first in line CHORUS What you get ain’t what you want, What you want ain’t what you need Don’t you wish they were the same, three in one, baby? You’re shooting arrows in the dark Hoping that you’ll hit the mark Can’t you stop and see the forest for the trees Take a breath; let time make friends with your heavy heart And feel the pieces fall a part, But in a good way Come on in, inside this tent where we all wait The one who saves won’t hesitate But sometimes the waiting weighs us down and we forget that we’re refined when CHORUS You left the small things in a pile by your back door, Maybe you should come in that way a little more Whatcha get ain’t what you want What you want ain’t what you need Don’t you wish they were the same, Cause one day… ALT CHORUS You’ll get exactly what you want You’ll want exactly what you need In the end they’ll be the same, three in one, baby The shooting arrows will be still Your emptiness will find its fill When you fall asleep, you’ll finally see the trees Finally see the trees You’ll finally see the trees.
