Track Name: When I'm With You
When I'm With You

My heart is open but never full
Something is broken; life is cruel
A space beneath my ribcage in the shape of you
But where are you?

When I am with you I find delight oooo my
When I am with you I come alive
When I am with you everything is right
When I am with you
O to be with you

What is a story when the end’s amiss
There is no glory to this masterpiece
You are my compass, and I’m lost at sea
so where are you?


When I am with you I find delight
When I am with you I come alive
When I am with you everything is right
When I am with you, I can’t deny that I
need to be with you

I don’t mind the clouds, I don’t mind the rain
When I am with you
Nothing here and now, be a greater gain
then to be with you
Can you tell me how, we can be close again
so I’d be with you

When I am with you I find delight
When I am with you I come alive
When I am with you everything is right
When I am with you, I can’t deny that I
need to be with you
Track Name: What It Means To Be Loved
What I Means To Be Loved

Acres of broken promises
A wasteland of debris and lies
All that, your smile dismisses
and ignites hope in their eyes.

Gently you lift up their faces
as if you were touching the skies
The weakest whisper in the heart is heard from miles

They will not remember
For they won’t recover
but now they’ve known what it means to be loved

Nothing stopping the light
from reaching their soul
The reaper will have his fight
for an angel is making them whole

Their eyes will close indeed
but their hearts can still be redeemed
And death is swallowed up in victory

They will not remember
For they won’t recover
but now they’ve known what it meant to be loved
For when you were together
They tasted the power
and now they know what it means to be loved
Track Name: It's Alright
Alright

He looked over and whispered
There is a longing in our nature
Questions left unanswered
Like “Who are you?
What will you do?
Will it ever matter?”

We were made to whole
Not to die in a hole
But you’d be saving your soul
If you came in the light
So you can live to be known and it’s alright

He looked over and whispered
This world is an empty treasure
I tried to fill it up with pleasure
But look at me
Take it from me
Get over the sun

We were made to whole
Not to die in a hole
But you’d be saving your soul
If you came in the light
So you can live to be known and it’s alright

And every day our souls are aching
For something more
A new heart
Or a place we’ve never been

We were made to whole
Not to die in a hole
But you’d be saving your soul
If you came in the light
So you can live to be known and it’s alright
Track Name: A Moitié Plein
A Moitié Plein

D’amour il y’a défaut
Un peu moins qu’il n’en faut
Mais le verre est à moitié plein
Si tu veux bien, un coup de main

De rêves, y’en a pas trop
Un remède pour les maux
Un soir au clair de lune
Ou ton âme et mienne font une

Y’a bonne chance que ça foire
On n’en ferait pas une histoire
Je prie, au fond, que t’ais espoir
Et viennes prendre ma main
Ce cœur n’est pas si aride
Si tu regardes au-delà des rides
Tu verras bien qu’il n’est pas vide
Juste à moitié plein.

Il y a un peu d’envie
Pour une autre vie
Moi j’ose bien y croire
Même si vouloir n’est pas pouvoir

Il reste un brin d’ardeur
Un zeste de bonheur
Le rêve d’un autre Eden
A la faveur de ton cœur

Y’a bonne chance que ça foire
L’horizon parait sombre et noir
Je prie, au fond, que t’ais espoir
Et vienne prendre ma main
Ce cœur n’est pas si aride
Si tu regardes au-delà des rides
Tu verras bien qu’il n’est pas vide
Juste à moitié plein.

Ce cœur n’est pas si aride
Si tu regardes au-delà des rides
Tu verras bien qu’il n’est pas vide
