Lyrics

Lost to Found

Written By: Julie Roth

Don’t walk away
This can bring us closer
I’m seeing things in your way
Enchant or fear
Brave or moving more towards giving in
I’m learning
I’m so faint, internally drained
Don’t make me sink or swim alone now
I can’t stay without you here
So carry me further
We can go further
Than today

Let go, let go
All the tricks of the trade
Your forgone ambitions are
Heading to the finish line
Move on, move on
You’re burning the bridges
To all that you hoped for
Can’t get enough love now
Can’t get enough love now
To move from lost to found
To move from lost to found

Bring on today
Don’t fear mistake
The tides are turning into more than I thought I could take
So don’t drive away
The means of grace are making
You who you are today
I’m coming out of my cage
To find myself out
To figure you out
Imagination
You’re here today
With me today
And I’m okay
I’m okay

Let go, let go
Your fearless endeavors
Don’t pose to ignite
These enchanted goodbyes
Press on, go on
To bigger and better
The love that is waiting

to surround you now
And move from lost to found
And move from lost to found

Sleep

Written By: Julie Roth

One more time sit here alone
Paraphrasing words I cannot say
Too forgotten, too betrayed
Too let down to look the other way

Say a prayer to dissipate
Sad excused should be thrown away
Take another glimpse into
Simple matters, worried eyes
A closer look expose unglued,
Unfed heart running to you
In just a moment, I’ll be fast asleep

If you could see me now
Could I explain somehow?
Exposing truths that shout
Too deep to just get by
These short of breath returns
Prove that you’ve seen me turn
To phrases gleamed with praise

Do you believe me now?

Who am I to mediate?
Who am I to fix your broken tears?
Don’t let wisdom intercede
Especially when wisdom comes from me

Take a moment, waste a year
Concealing rumors, cleansing all your fears
Digging deep expose the pride
That makes me sing these lullabies
A stronger whisper, deeper shout
Prayer unanswered, feeling out
In just a moment, I’ll be fast asleep

If you could see me now
Could I explain somehow?
Exposing truths that shout
Too deep to just get by
These short of breath returns
Prove that you’ve seen me turn
To phrases gleamed with praise

Don’t let me fall asleep
Don’t let me fall asleep

Useless

Written By: Julie Roth

Consider useless to your throne
Consider me anything but your own
There’s nothing here but a broken heart
Waiting for hope in a fearless world

Consider me dead to my own body
I’m sick, but can’t reach to anybody
Don’t look at my heart or call my name
So ashamed

Please believe me
When I tell you I am sorry
When I tell you I am nothing
Please just hear me
When I cry your name with laughter
When my words couldn’t be softer

Deliver me from this raging fire
Please save me from all impure desire
I know your ways are not my own
My heart’s turned to stone

Please believe me
When I tell you I am sorry
When I tell you I am nothing
Please just hear me
When I cry your name with laughter
When my words couldn’t be softer

One day, one day of redemption
Take all away with affection
Ignore my past mistakes and take me as your own
One death, one cross of redemption
Bought all with his compassion
Enough to take these dreams and make them all your own

Frozen Memories

Written By: Julie Roth

Is time the way it ought to be
Do faces match with history?
Narrow-minded souls destroy your wish
Fading out

Blackout of paper fears collide
Exaggeration you can’t hide
Configure ways to tame desire
To fly

Newspaper pages spread the floor
They seem to follow wanting more
Determined motives share their dreams
For you

No one’s running faster than the air
No one seems to live without a care
Frozen memories melt to my surprise
Closing eyes, but I can’t sleep tonight

Wine bottles fill your empty dreams
Cures more painful than it seems
Reflection please give us a chance
To fly

No one’s running faster than the air
No one seems to live without a care
Frozen memories melt to my surprise
Closing eyes, but I can’t sleep tonight

Time is running faster than the air
Future’s looking back without a care
Broken hopes return to your surprise
Close your eyes so you can sleep…
