Track Name: Be Like You
Lights a blazin,’ wishin,’ thinkin’
How'm I gonna make this cursor stop a blinkin,’ blinkin,’ blinkin’

Seems the only space is staring in my face
And the world that is outside of my window
Hoping someday I’ll be out there

Instead I'm schemin,' dreamin,' losin' feeling
In my legs and my grip on reality
'Cause I’m thinkin,' thinkin,' overthinkin'

Pre-Chorus:
But there’s a price that we all pay
Each and every way
Except the road that’s already paved

Chorus :
I only wanna be like you
Seems when the best of me shines on through
Forget the lights
Forget the fame
My mission is to bless Your name
I only wanna be like
Only wanna be
Only wanna be like You

Heart's a racin,' fingers pacing
Hovering on the verse to make a hit on the radio station, station, station

Gonna write it down hit another town
But the bus I’m on is leading me home
So I can stretch out and walk my life

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

So I’ll stop and pray
When I’m movin' through my day
So my God
My God
Can speak the words, speak the words
And make all His dreams come true

Chorus

Chorus

I only wanna be like you
Seems when the best of me shines on through

Your name

I only wanna be like
Only wanna be
Only wanna be like You
Track Name: You Are Loved
Emptiness is a poison
Creation began with two in mind
Fullness is a blessing
A sense of place
Your visions and clarities
They complement the gaps
You make us whole
You make us balanced

You make us complete

Chorus:
You’re not alone
When you hear this song come on
Daughters of God
You are Loved

Chorus

For example
I’m walkin' along just singing this song
When I realize that my shirt’s on backwards
Stumble on my words until
You pick me up
You dust me off
And you pat me on my head
A woman is the glory of a man

Thank God He had a plan

Chorus

Chorus

Bridge:
Dear sisters
We’re here to call you friend
Dear sisters
We’re here until the end

Bridge

Bridge

Dear sisters
We're here to call you friend

And we'll sing
La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da
One more time sing it again now

La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da

You're not alone
When you hear this song come on

Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: Lost for Words (Acoustic)
So we jumped the gun from the start
Should've never let you in my head
You said, "Baby, you'll break my heart."
Looks like you beat me to it
And from the way it's sounding
You'll never be back again

Collect my thoughts, my hopes, my memories
So I can possibly remember them
Knew all along of what this could be
You're wrong it doesn't have to end
And now my heart is pounding
While yours is closed
I pray that it opens

Chorus:
I can love you like nobody can
I can hold you forever
I'd spend my dying breath running to where you are
Consequently
I don't know how to be your friend
I don't know how to be your friend

Don't let this be the ghost of a good thing
I'll never take back those words that I said
As for the letters, I wrote thirteen
I love you always was at the end
And now my heart is pounding
While yours is closed
I pray that it opens

Chorus

I gotta find a way to show you
Exactly what I'm feelin' inside
Gotta give up someday I know
Trying to find the words to say
Exactly what I'm feelin' inside
Words can never convey how

Chorus

I don't know how to be your friend
No, no, no, no, no
Track Name: What Matters More (Acoustic)
Climb out the upstairs window
Lay on top of the city
From here, the lights are peaceful

The night is still
Here’s an outsider looking in
Don’t need nothing more
This world's beautiful

But the road is filled
With unreturned gestures
I don’t understand
This world's beautiful

Pre-Chorus:
I can’t stand the hate
I won’t take rejection
I won’t stand and wait
Our numbers make a projection

Chorus:
And so scream at the top of your lungs
Sing like your life depends it
Live like today's your last, and love
What else matters more?

Together, you and I
Can rid the world
Forever, you and I still hide in shame
But we were made
Made to work together
If harmony is all we bring
Our peers will sing

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

What else matters more?
What else matters more?

And we will scream
Everybody live
And we will scream
Everybody live

Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: Purify Me
Verse:
Abba Father, hear my call
I'm crying out
Crying out
I’ve wasted all these years in sin and shame
I'm filled with doubt
Filled with doubt

Pre-Chorus:
Lord, let me feel You
Let me feel You
Oh, Lord, let me feel You
In Jesus' name

Chorus:
Purify me now
Purify my soul
Come and cleanse my heart
Come and make me whole

Purify me, Lord, Lord

Purify me, Lord, Lord
Lord, Lord

Bridge:
Purify me, Lord
Send the heavens down
Send the heavens down
Purify me, Lord
Send Your angels down
Send Your angels down

Bridge

Purify me, Lord
Purify me, Lord
Lord, Lord
