Lyrics

Wildflower

Written By: Katie Cason

I did not ask Him to bring you the world
tied up in string and left by your door
so don't expect wildflowers
freshly handpicked from fields of desire

this is what i asked for
in just a little while we'll be there
this is what i asked for
in just a little while you'll see that

the river it won't seem quite as wide
when you look over your shoulder from the other shore and
this mountain it's not that high when your doubts can't leave you terrified anymore

when you are melting by the light of the moon
He will catch every drop of you
fingers pressed tightly together until
every thought is steady and will not spill

Constellations

Written By: Katie Cason

if i was a star would you travel very far
just to watch me burn
or will i always be
just an asterisks in your sea of galaxies

we'll carry constellations on our shoulders
that we might navegate you o dark waters
we'll carry constellations on our shoulders
now we're charting our way home
tonight

if i was a bird would you ever notice me
would you hear my song
cause i'll sing all through the night
above the storm until daylight
til you come along

(bridge)
our hands are bloody from the fight
our hope is doubtful we'll survive
after all of this is said and done
we will
chart our coarse across the sea
just the stars and you and me
we're coming home
o when the wind starts blowing
o when the wind starts blowing

Hide and Seek

Written By: Katie Cason

under this chair or behind that glass door
you might find me there
if i close my eyes you can't see me anymore
even though i'm under your nose

la da da....
it's only a game i play
la da da.....
until i get scared

hold me once hold me twice
count to 10
open my eyes
kiss me once kiss me twice
count to 10
everything's alright again

element of surprise
that you seek why do i hide
away
under the darkness the depths of the seas
you might find me there

(bridge)
i hide, you seek.....
