Track Name: From The Start (AV)
I see the sunrise in the horizon
It’s a welcome sight for this wayward soul
I’ve been driving through them dark nights
But now I’m coming home

If home is where the heart is
Then you’ve always had mine from the start
I don’t wanna live a moment longer
Apart

I see smoke rise up in my rearview
Clouding up them Alberta skies
It’s from the trials by fire that I’ve been through
But somehow I’ve survived – somehow

If home is where the heart is
Then you’ve always had mine from the start
I don’t wanna live a moment longer
Apart

I smell sweet grass and canola
It conjures up days of innocence
Like riding to the Creamery down on Main Street
When we were kids

If home is where the heart is
Then you’ve always had mine from the start
I don’t wanna live a moment longer
Apart
Track Name: Years From Now (AV)
I’ll pack my bags and leave this town
Say goodbye to my Ma and Pa
To start a life in a foreign land
With the one I love

Years from now we’ll be sittin’ in the kitchen
Talkin’ over coffee
While playin’ footsies down below
As we grow old we’ll still kiss each other softly
Play games in the bed sheets
Bound in a love unbreakable

She walks with grace and speaks in song
She laughs with joy at the time to come
I asked her folks for her marriage hand
She’s the one I love

Years from now we’ll be sittin’ in the kitchen
Talkin’ over coffee
While playin’ footsies down below
As we grow old we’ll still kiss each other softly
Play games in the bed sheets
Bound in a love unbreakable

Storms will come
Winds will blow
But our love will always grow

Years from now we’ll be sittin’ in the kitchen
Talkin’ over coffee
While playin’ footsies down below
As we grow old we’ll still kiss each other softly
Play games in the bed sheets
Bound in a love unbreakable
Track Name: Hemel Kom (AV)
My days, like lonely shadows
Are cast across this land
I wither away like the prairie grass
My soul cries out in anguish
My bones in agony
Oh life me merciful to me

Hemel kom en neem me van de aarde

I lay awake in the night
Tortured by my fears
Drowning in a flood of tears
I’m a smouldering wick
A bruised and battered reed
Oh Lord deliver me

Hemel kom en neem me van de aarde
Jezus kom en red mij van mijzelf

Jezus kom en red mij van mijzelf

Yahweh has heard my cries for help
He will not let me down
Track Name: Time Stand Still (AV)
I can smell the coffee perking on the stove
Gosh it’s good to be home
And the sound of kids out playing the yard
Warms these old bones

Time, stand still
I can never get my fill
Time, stand still
In the morning when our house comes alive
But you’re still snoring
So honey, I’ll just watch and smile and sigh

I’ve been missing you each night
As I turn out the lights
In this smoky motel room
I’ll just stare up at the roof
Count water stains for a while
And dream about you

Time, stand still
I can never get my fill
Time, stand still
In the morning, when our house comes alive
But you’re still snoring
So honey, I’ll just watch and smile and sigh

When our house comes alive
I’ll just watch and smile
When our house comes alive
I’ll just watch and smile and sigh
Track Name: Thief (AV)
I’ve heard it said he came as a man
Flesh and bones, water sand
But all the while, deity
Son of man, King of kings

They said he grew in favor with
God and man in all he did
Then one day he left home
To take his place and claim his throne

Who is this man?
What did he claim?
There’s hope for a people
Who call on his name

They say he taught with authority
The likes of which they’d never seen
Filled with power in word and deed
He stills the heart and calms the seas

From Jerusalem on up to Calvary
He walked the road prepared for me
Does no one else see the irony?
A carpenter hung from a tree

Who is this man?
What did he claim?
There’s hope for a people
Who call on his name

He said he could forgive my sins
I look at him; I look at him
Beside me
Upon a tree
Beside me
I am the thief
Track Name: Be Gentle (AV)
Be gentle with me, I’ll be gentle with you
We had a good thing, now it’s clear that we’re through

You’ll go your way, I’ll go my way, it’s true
We’ll be fine

Be gentle with him, I’ll be gentle with her
It’s been a few years; we’re not the kids we once were

You left for college, I worked the family farm
We’ll be fine

Be gentle with yours, I’ll be gentle with mine
Heard you had twin boys, I’ve got a daughter who’s five

One day they’ll leave us, they’ll grow up right over night
We’ll be fine

‘Cause the promise we made that day
Was to love for the rest of our lives

You’ll be, I’ll be, They’ll be
We’ll be fine
