Caught up in a kiss © Nicole Gordon & Gary Burr I wasn’t looking or planning or wishing or waiting for you Then out of the blue I’m sixteen again And the things that I do don’t make any sense Like smiling in my sleep Whistling when I walk Thinking about forever every time we talk CHORUS You make me remember what it feels like To be caught up in a kiss, lost in happiness You make me remember what it feels like To be shaky in the knees, find it hard to breathe And all of this sounds a little sweet somehow But I am all about the sweet right now You make me remember what it feels like falling in love It’s like diving or swimming when you haven’t seen an ocean in years But now that you’re here and I feel your touch I didn’t know I was missing so much Like running in the rain dancing in the dark Losing my head and trusting my heart CHORUS I turned back the clock when I look in your eyes It’s been such a long time since I felt butterflies CHORUS

Right by my side Make believing you aint leaving And we’re soaking in the summer light It’s so easy I smell the breeze it’s Drifting thru the salty sky Sea gulls cry But no not I because CHORUS We’re close as ever in my mind I dream up adventures we can try Airplanes fly But you’re right by my side Diving under to dodge the thunder Swimming in the peaceful seas Rain is pouring but we’re exploring Hide and seek through coral reefs Fish want to play I can escape CHORUS In any land, far far away We’re reunited everyday Make believing you aint leaving And we’re taking in the moonlit night Sunsets rise One day I’ll open my eyes but for now…. CHORUS

Mirror 02:24
Mirror The mirror in my bathroom’s small But growing up, it took up the whole wall I’d stand on the ledge so I could see My whole body I’d spend hours and hours staring in Singing the day away dreaming Of the fabulous life ahead of me That’s what I’d see I know it was pretend but it opened my world And I’m afraid if I look in I’ll see that little girl So usually I’ll only take a peek I don’t want her to see There’s no major awards, no babies No mansion on the hill that belongs to me No number one hits, no diamond ring And I don’t want her to see I know it was pretend but it opened my world And I’m afraid if I look in I’ll see that little girl So usually I’ll only take a peek I don’t want her to see The mirror in my bathroom’s small

Up in the air When you’re Up, up in the air Settling in the empty spaces You can let let down your hair Dance around the social graces When you’re Up, up in the air Secret things you start revealing Higher you go in the atmosphere Room enough for make believing No one really minds When all you’ve got is time Try this on for size It could open up your eyes Feeling brave from out of nowhere so welcome the surprise And if you ever land You can go back to being bland When You’re up, up in the air

Praying on what goes down, must come up

Don't ever have to want for the things I need
Aint never gonna die I’ll just go to seed
Praying on what goes down, must come up 2x Red clay stains won't never come clean
This years flush & the next is lean
Praying on what goes down, must come up 2x Mamma sings a story swinging on the porch
Daddy strums the fiddle and we dance for nickels
Bet each other run through rows in the dark
But no one ever had the nerve No three piece suit it’s the ground I toil
Only way to get rich is if I strike oil
Praying on what goes down, must come up 2x
 SOLO Hauling fodder into town down Old Plank Road Feet hanging over seeing bunnies in the clouds Dared each other ring old Hobie Mett’s bell
but no one ever had the nerve   The kingdom come silks turned brown Looked all my life but never saw no crown Praying on what goes down, must come up 2x

Don't ever have to want for the things I need
Aint never gonna die just go to seed

Anyway 04:01
Anyway Breaking waves around a steady calm Reaching out for something new But you can’t hide, what you can’t find Long for love beneath uncharted ground Running circles in the sand So you dig for anything CHORUS It makes no sense There’s no reason What you want’s not In this season And it’s ok to want it anyway Navigating with a hint of light Focused on the dawn of day And with God’s grace you’ll reach that place Because the desire only gets higher Your faith at it’s core You feel it’s strength but is it yours CHORUS
7.
Find Your Way Been floating for awhile We slowly changed our styles and ideas But somewhere in my soul There’s always a pull when you’re near It’s not easy But I need you to see CHORUS That the light in my heart It stays lit in the dark There’s no danger that it will fade We burn brighter as one We outshine the sun I’ll stay on till you find your way The captain of the sea But my net’s empty and torn The storms have been rough We’ve had plenty of enough I’m sure What can’t be lost Is between us CHORUS

Sunny side of the moon

I took a ride on the sunny side of the moon
 I landed here I’m afraid way too soon
 Most of the time I feel I’m marching out of tune 

I get the feeling heaven follows me around
 Picking me up when I stumble to the ground
 Because I was lost but somehow, someway I found

 CHORUS 
A place to fall
 Hands to help me up 
They dust me off
 To fly 

I dance around with the breeze that passes by 
Take flight on the wings of a dragon fly
 More and more I’m getting used to my new life

 All my ideas about the ways a path should lead
 Melt away like a distant memory
 I’m more alive as I’m climbing each new tree

 CHORUS
 Fly fly 

I took a ride on the sunny side of the moon
 Discovered warmth in a musical cocoon In a desert you can always find a bloom

He Looks Happy Sorry I’m late guess who I just ran into 10 pounds lighter a big ole smile and brand new suit And he gushed about his new girlfriend who’s moving in and smart she is for 22 Chorus Oh I hate to admit I may have waited a bit too long For him to come around Oh I’m sorry to say as I was walking away Damn, he looks happy It’s not like I expected to find a shattered man So I try to hide the hurt inside the best I can But a couple more years of misery he’d suffer enough and come back to me wasn’t that the plan? Chorus He wished me the best without a hint of regret but that’s not what got to me He looked like he looked when we were in love and that’s the last thing I wanted to see © Nicole Gordon and Gary Burr

Here (in what was) ©Nicole Gordon I pay the rent And I walk the dog Grocery shop, still buy enough for two Half expecting you CHORUS To be, Here In what was I make the bed Sleep on my side Watch basketball, the old games you taped Wear both our rings So I’m wondering if I had a talk with God We could strike a deal in return for all this pain Because time’s gone by and I still can’t move on So could he bring you back or send me to the same place CHORUS To be, Here In what was
