Track Name: Freedom Ride
Let's head out on a freedom ride
We won't go down the wrong road
I only want to ease your mind

On a freedom ride

They always have a lot to say
But all their voices fade away
The more we move ourselves along

On a freedom ride

Hope the best and wish them well
We'll see them somewhere down the line
We can leave it all behind

On a freedom ride

Give me a chance to set you free
I know you'd do the same for me
It can happen so easily

On a freedom ride
Track Name: Work Out Right
I spend most of my time
All in the same place
Searchin' for signs

That everything's gonna work out right
That everything's gonna work out right

I work hard everyday
To get home to you
But it takes too long

Before I get you at the end of the night
Before I get you at the end of the night

And it's all the same
After awhile
And I'll do it over and over again

For everything to turn out right
For everything to work out right
For everything to work out right
For everything to work out right
Track Name: Endless Days
There are days
Endless days
That seem to stretch out longer than they should

And there are nights
That come too soon
Before I feel like I have done a bit of good

And it ain't right
To have to say
That you just need to get through the day

If you say it too many times
You'll turn old and gray
With the feeling that too many days have passed you by

And it's easy
Too damn easy
To lose track of time and lose another day

When my lady
She is with me
I turn the clock to face the wall and I find a better way

The sun comes up
And the sun goes down
And in between I try to earn some bread

But money don't mean a thing
If you ain't got time
And I'd rather spend all my time with you instead

And my eyes are open now
To gaze upon the light of your love

And the darkness won't claim me in the end
With the feelin' that too many days have passed me by
Track Name: A Good Thing Now
Hey pretty babe why are you all the way
At the other end of the room

Change your direction
Don't lose your connection
To a good thing now

A man Sunday driving sped through a red light
To get himself closer to God

Change your direction
Don't lose your connection
To a good thing now

I tried bein' friendly to those who weren't good to me
They weren't even good to themselves

Change your direction
Don't lose your connection
To a good thing now

It ain't easy knowing and it's hard to understand
Why every step that we take don't always take us where we planned
But we keep on walking anyway

And sometimes it's clear to you just what you need to do
But fear can lead you astray

It spreads like infection
Don't lose your connection
To a good thing now
To a good thing now
Track Name: We Have Left the Ground
Put on your magic shirt and let's fly
We gotta lift our spirits high

We have left the ground
We have left the ground
Again

All of your words have wings
Let 'em fly whenever you please
Tell me of a memory
Of climbing up a hill to look down to see

That we left the ground
We have left the ground
Again

We don't worry anymore
We ain't bound to the floor

We have left the ground
We have left the ground
Again
Track Name: Return Home
If you go on blamin' everybody
For what you done
And you ain't sure that you're right
But you just can't stand being wrong

Well it's a long hard road my friend
That you're bound to find
I hope you don't mind
Some complication there

On your
Return home
When familiar feelings surround you
And that old highway winds down to
Return you home

We've all been there my friend
I ain't meaning to condescend
But we've all been there
Plenty of times before

Just take a look into my eyes
And I know that you will find
That when you look in the mirror
You'll see the same eyes there

You'll have to learn to love yourself
Before you can love anyone else
It takes all the love in the world
To reach the truth

Even though you don't tell lies
Lying is a part of your life
But lying is far too heavy
A burden to bear

On your
Return home
When familiar feelings surround you
And that old highway winds down to
Return you home

Return home
When familiar feelings surround you
Let that old highway wind down to
Return you home
Track Name: Golden Days Yet to Come
Either you are a part of my day
Or you are in my way
You can hop on board if you like
But only if you want to stay

Look out baby here I come
All this worryin' can leave you numb
We'll only spend what we can afford
So let your mind wander some

On the golden days yet to come
Golden days yet to come

So many people sharpen their knives
They get better at it everyday of their lives
It's a strange way to be
But that don't concern you or me

Leave the world at the door
You don't need that weight anymore
Knives are sharp but they don't leave scars
As long as you dream of what's in store

On those golden days yet to come
Golden days yet to come

I went outside and the world came crashing down
I had a notion to be leavin' town
But you can't escape from everywhere
So I did not cry nor make a sound

The seasons change without a care
God is shifting in his rocking chair
But I don't worry about the coming storm
As long as you'll always be waiting there

In those golden days yet to come
Golden days yet to come
Track Name: Upon Today
How could we have ever known
The kind of path that we were on
I ain't too concerned with the past
But that don't mean I easily forget

How we came
To gather our love
Upon today

Well if the past is made of stone and the future is made of clay
Throw the stone into the water and let the wave carry us away
Upon today
Upon today

Now that we've found what we need
And it seems so clear to us now
That tomorrow can wear a disguise
And yesterday won't tell us any lies

About how we came
To gather our love
Upon today

Well I recall tomorrow as if it were only yesterday
Throw the stone into the water and let the wave carry us away
Upon today
Upon today
Track Name: Keep On Dreamin'
Standin', I am standin'
In a dream, in a dream

Dancin', my mind is dancin'
In a dream, in a dream

Swimmin', I am swimmin'
In our dream, in our dream

Hopin', I am hopin'
That our dream
Becomes real

Well I ain't tired but I've been awake for so long
I ain't ready for sleepin' and nothing is gonna slow me down
And it's a natural thing for me to do, it's a natural thing

To keep dreamin'
Keep on dreamin'
Keep on dreamin'
Dreamin' about me and you

Colors, I see colors
In my dream, in my dream

Racin', my heart is racin'
As I dream, as I dream

Future, I see the future
In our dreams, in our dreams

Hopin', I am hopin'
That our dreams
Become real

And it's a natural thing for me to do, it's a natural thing

To keep dreamin'
Keep on dreamin'
Keep on dreamin'
Dreamin' about me and you
