Track Name: Nomad
NOMAD


Do you remember how the sound of a broken cup made you stop
And fly in to gather the bits of my heart
With every step you stretched to run towards me, I could see
The wounds and the scars you’ve born on my part
But how many more I would not bear to have you here!

I miss you like a NoMaD misses a home
A place that he had never had
But knows he’d belong
And every passing moment I wander alone
Your memory’s a compass guiding me home to you
Guiding me home to you, guiding me home to you
Guiding me home

I wonder if you wonder
Where I landed myself, if I found a shelter or given in to death
Forget not all the dreams we had for our world, you have my word
They’re the lamp to my eye; they’d never leave my sight

I miss you like a NoMaD misses a home
A place that he had never had
But knows he’d belong
And every passing moment I wander alone
Your memory’s a compass guiding me home to you
Guiding me home to you, guiding me home to you

Guiding me home to you; back to you
O Home to you, I’m coming back to you
I’m coming back to you; I’m coming back to yo

I miss you like a NoMaD misses a home
A place that he had never had
But knows he’d belong
And every passing moment I wander alone
Your memory’s a compass guiding me home to you
Guiding me home to you, guiding me home to you
Track Name: Good
GOOD

Well, I had to be taught how to open my hands but not how to close them
You see, the closing is what I do the most often
And I had to learn about giving; about letting go, about forgiving
And still I find that I’m mostly like the keeping
But I am a good person, aren't I? I’m filled with good intentions and I try

To do some good O I do
I just fail to do it when I should
Won’t you be good and say I’m good,
That I am good just like you?


See, no one told me about lying, but somehow I knew about the feeling
And so I caught the first bus away from the truth
Oh, I’m know most for what I’m hating; I was working on patience and grew tired of waiting
And I’d love to change but NO, I’ve got too much to loose
Like growing more selfish every day; fighting to get it all my way

I’m good, I try to do good, I do
I just fail to do it when I should
Won’t you be good and say I’m good,
That I am good just like you?

O I am good like you, if not better than you….
I’m good, I try to do good, I do
If you can’t see it, I’m better than you
Won’t you be good and call me

Good, won’t you be good and say I’m good,
I just fail to do it when I should
Won’t you be nice and say I’m good,
Won’t you be good and say I’m good,
O I am good,
Won’t you be nice and call me nice
Coz I am good just like you
Won’t you be good and call me good
Track Name: Let Go Of The Past
Let Go of the Past


You grip, you grasp; you grin and pout
You closed your fist strong and tight
You boast in letting nothing out
But things suffocate, dry out and die
I want to be your friend; just let me in
Want you to know you can count on me
Tell me about where you’ve been
Take your time let it out on me

And let go of the past! Let go of the pain!
Forgive at last and you’ll never be the same (2x)

Take a walk with me; side by side
I am here to stay; you can count on it
Forget the world it’s just, just you and I
I can understand so talk to me
Open up your hand to hold mine
Feel my wounds in my hands and feet
I can help you heal, make you feel alright
But you have to trust and believe in me

And let go of the past! Let go of the pain!
Forgive at last and you’ll never be the same (2x)

Let it go

Love is passing by
Lift your wounded head
Open up your eyes
It’ll make you well
Track Name: Rome
ROME

If there’s one thing I know, it is that every road leads to Rome
But since you’re choosing I hope you’ll make my arms your home
Coz I’ll stand by your side if you hide your dreams in mine
If you hide your heart in my life through each scale of time

O, you’re a beautiful design;
O, you’re a delightful and sublime;
O, you’re wonderful O my
Heart is at home wherever life calls you mine

As the waves crash around us hoist your mast with my hopes
Never found is never lost; Darling lest elope

O, you’re a beautiful design;
O, you’re a delightful and sublime;
O, you’re wonderful O my
Heart is at home wherever life calls you mine

Death will come to make us part; to take us home never to part
Still for you I would war coz Rome is not that far

O, you’re a beautiful design;
O, you’re a delightful and sublime;
O, you’re wonderful O my
Heart is at home wherever life calls you mine
Track Name: New Life
New Life

You see the part of me no one else will ever see
The sinful, shameful, wicked Me
Still when the snare of death assailed and entangled me
You came down as ransom and saved me

You lifted me out of the miry clay
You lifted me out of the miry clay
You lifted me out of the miry clay
Into New Life!

You carried my sorrows, and borne all my grief
By your wounds, by your bruises I am healed
It was the will of the Father to crush and slaughter
The offering for MY Sin is fulfilled

Chorus:
You lifted me out of the miry clay
You lifted me out of the miry clay
You lifted me out of the miry clay
Into new life!

All the powers of hell are no match for you
Sinless, blameless Lamb of God
You conquered death and overcame this world
abiding in You I have true life
