Track Name: The Cure
V1
I’m afraid
I’m afraid of what I’m running from

I’m ashamed
I’m ashamed of who I have become

I believe
I believe that I can come to you

To receive
To receive some help to get me through

CHORUS
Help me
I’m sick and tired of myself
Locked inside of my shell
Could you unlock the door?

Aching
Aching for acceptance
Bracing for rejection
I know there’s a cure
You say I am yours
V2
I have heard
I have heard about your love for me

What’s it worth
What’s it worth when I’m a slave to me

Scoop me up
Scoop me up though I may kick and scream

Keep me close
Keep me close and keep me company

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Nobody can contain your love
Nobody could ever shake your love
Nobody can erase your love
No nobody no
Track Name: All The Way Home
V1
Because you walked with me 
When I was just learning  
Because you looked for me
When I ran away

When nothing else is certain
It is all that I know 
You're gonna walk with me 
All the way home 

CHORUS
All the way home 
Through rain or shine 
All the way home 
Right by my side 

Because you walked for me 
Down Calvarys road 
You're gonna walk with me 
All the way home 

V2
Because You stood with me
When I stood at the altar
Because You cried with me 
When my promises I broke 

When I'm banished like a stranger 
There's a door step I know 
You're gonna walk with me
All the way home 

BRIDGE
The road is long
but there is a horizon
where heaven meets the earth

the road is long
but I was made a traveler
your love is my leader
and its leading me
Track Name: All Yours
All my wants are my best riches 
When you supply them 
All my tears are my best visions 
When you wipe them 
All my longings are my companions  
When you’re in em

CHORUS
Say I’m yours
Say I’m all yours
Because I am

All my cries are my best comfort  
When you embrace me 
All my cross is all my sweet spot   
When you have lead me 
All my exiles are doors to destiny 
When you receive me 

Say I’m yours
Say I’m all yours
Because I Am

BRIDGE
This is everything
I could ever need
This is everything
I could ever be
Track Name: SONGPOEM #15: Would You Take It From Me?
If I gave you what’s already yours
would you take it from me?
Would you take it from me as an offering

All I bring it is already yours
Won’t you take it from me?
Won’t you take it from me as an offering

CHORUS
I had hurt
and you took it from me
and my sorrows
you took them as though they were yours

I have breath cuz you gave it to me
and a heart that now beats
and a voice that will sing

would you take them from me?
God please take them from me
as an offering
Track Name: No Strings Attached
I remember laughing
In the southern summer breeze
I remember dreaming
After my parents read to me

Didn’t have a clue then
But let me tell what I had
I had true love with no strings attached

CHORUS
No no no no
No strings attached
No fine print, no secrets
No give and then give back

No, no no no
I don’t want a love like that
I want true love with no strings attached

I saw it on her face
as we flew across the sea
I saw it in her eyes
As she said “I just feel free”

I saw it in the smiles
of our wedding photograph
I saw true love with no strings attached

CHORUS

I heard it in the thumping
As the men they dropped their stones
I heard it in the sobbing
Of a sinners “welcome home”

I heard it on the cross
As You took your final gasp
I heard true love with no strings attached
