Track Name: Alive Again
After the winter, life comes again
Open the windows and let the sunshine in
It's been too long since you've felt alive
All these things right in front of you
Open your eyes

Can you smell the rain?
Can you hear it fall?
All around you now, just give into it all
And the things inside of you that you thought were dead
Are calling out for you to be alive again, alive again

You say it's complicated, there's no way I could know
How you've become so jaded, it's time to let things go
You've held on for so long, you can't let this die
But trust me dear this time, give it up and become alive

Can you smell the rain?
Can you hear it fall?
All around you now, just give into it all
And the things inside of you that you thought were dead
Are calling out for you to be alive again, alive again

They're calling out for you to be alive again, yea
Track Name: I Want to Love
I want to love, I want to be real
I want to see with my heart, I want to feel
I want to know who you really are
To go beyond the skin and hear the whispers of your heart

I want true love
I want true love
I want true love
I want true love

I want to dance with you, hold you close to me
I want to look in your eyes just to see what I see
So would you walk with me down this unknown road?
Cause I want to take your hand and make it my own

I want to love you
I want to love you
I want to love you
Like you are my own

I was made for this, to taste heaven's holy kiss
And all I want to do is spend the rest of my life with you

I want to love you
I want to love you
I want to love you
I want to love you
I want to love you
I want to love you
I want to love you
Like you are my own
Track Name: Losing a Friend
I got the call today, and your voice sounded scared
You stumbled through your words as you spoke what I feared
And we didn't have much time, so I raced out the door
Leaving all my things behind, praying God let me see you once more

Cause I didn't know that you were gonna leave me
I didn't know that I wouldn't see you again
I didn't know that I couldn't hug you
One last time and tell you I love you again
Cause you're never quite prepared

What if I had said, that I loved you every chance
That I got to see your face, well it still wouldn't bring you back
And all I wanted was another day with you
But the end always comes too fast, it always comes too soon

Cause I didn't know that you were gonna leave me
I didn't know that I wouldn't see you again
I didn't know that I couldn't hug you
One last time and tell you I love you again

Cause you're never quite prepared
To face the things you cannot bare
You're never quite prepared, to lose a friend
Track Name: I Know You Know
I know you know who I was
You know who I was, was not enough
I could not look you in the eyes
Cause I know you saw through my disguise
You saw who I was and who I was
Wasn't who I'm supposed to be

One day you caught me by surprise
Said hey boy, how are you, how's your life?
I said OK I'm doing fine
But inside I knew it was a lie
Cause you saw who I was and who I was
Wasn't who I'm supposed to be

And I remember feeling weak when I looked into your eyes
Cause nothing I could do or say could mask all of my lies
And all you did was look my way at just the perfect time
And I knew I had to change when your eyes met mine
Track Name: All the Time in the World
You can spend your life, your pennies and your dimes
Each moment at a time, just like we all do
You can play your life, just like a record on a table
Spin it all you want but you can't hit rewind

One thing that I've learned about getting second chances
Is that they come twice

Cause the time we're given is what we make of it
Stop pretending, just start living it now
You gotta live it somehow
You got all these choices like static noise
You gotta pick one and live it cause before you know it, it's gone
Yea your life aint' that long

As the days go by, you watch the time fly
These moment's become minutes, become our lives

Cause the time we're given is what we make of it
Stop pretending, just start living it now
You gotta live it somehow
You got all these choices like static noise
You gotta pick one and live it cause before you know it, it's gone
Yea your life aint' that long

You got all the time, all the time in the world
You got all the time, all the time in the world
