"Original Place"

Written By: Mark Vikingstad

We used to sing about sailboats
Our love and the sea
How you stole my heart
By being the thief

And Now that its over
Were done making plans
you sail away
With my heart in your hands

And I'm left here with a key and an empty chest
I'm trying so hard to move on and forget

But it's gonna take time
Gonna take space
To get my heart back into
It's original place. 2x

Theres no direction
for (on) which path to take
'cause any (a) step forward
Could be a mistake

So where am I headed?
I don't even know (where should I go)?
I'll cast out my sails (but I'll let the wind hit the sails)
And lets Gods wind blow

But It's gonna take time
Gonna take space
To get my heart back into
It's original place

(Bridge)
I know I'll get my chance to move on
But I wish that the chance would hurry and come along

"This Miracles Mine"

Written By: Mark Vikingstad

She had her fingers on the ivories
Pushing down the keys
Singing about heartbroken memories
On every word I held my breath
like the sun my heart was set
to act upon a notion
that she could be it

But somehow I just can't explain
Why God works in mysterious ways

'Cause shes incredible, beautiful, wonderful
like a miracle
that I see everyday
and I am humbled by her big green eyes
I pinch myself to realize
Shes standing with me
And I know miracles happen all the time
But This Miracles Mine
She brought my heart out of hiding
Gave me sight when I was blind
like she knew what I was looking for
what I needed to find

Like a light on the front porch
Guiding me home
She led me out of the darkness
to where she knew I belonged

And somehow I just can't explain
Why God works in mysterious ways

'Cause shes incredible, beautiful, wonderful
like a miracle
that I see everyday
and I am humbled by her big green eyes
I pinch myself to realize
Shes standing with me
And I know miracles happen all the time
But This Miracles Mine

And not every miracle needs to be
from out of this world
'Cause who knew that one could be found
in the beauty and grace of a girl

'Cause shes incredible, beautiful, wonderful
like a miracle
that I see everyday
and I am humbled by her big green eyes
I pinch myself to realize
Shes standing with me
And I know miracles happen all the time
But This Miracles Mine

"My Heart Flies UP"

Written By: Mark Vikingstad

Picnic baskets, Checkered blankets
Under trees, while fall leaves fall

We'd lie down and watch the clouds
We'd pick the shapes and sizes of the all

And my love for you
Is like a thousand balloons
keeping me floating on air

And my heart flies up for you
And my heart flies up for you
And no matter where I go
I know you'll be there too
because my heart flies up for you
My Heart Flies Up for you

You'd have your chair
I'd have mine
We'd sit together just to pass the time

You read books of far off lands
I read the paper as we're holding hands

And my love for you is like a thousand balloons
Keeping me floating on air

And my heart flies up for you
and my heart flies up for you
and no matter where I go
I know you'll be there too
because my heart flies up for you
My Heart Flies Up for you

We wanted a family
but the crib had stayed empty
so we saved up and made other plans

But life kept on going
there was no way of knowing
that your part in our story would end (would end)

So my heart flies up to you
Now my heart flies up to you
and no matter where you've gone
I know I'll be there too
because my heart flies up to you
My Heart Flies Up To you

"Go To Waste"

Written By: Mark Vikingstad

Somethings gotta give
I need a little change
I'm not asking for a miracle
but a sign would be great

So send me anything at all
To show I'm not wasting my time
'Cause I need a little hope
something to believe this is where I'm supposed to be

So let it ring outloud
make it as clear as day
I don't want to let this gift
Go To Waste X2

I've been given the tools
And I've drawn out the plans
now I'm building with words
Connected by chords and strings in my hands

But I'm asking for help
a little push from faith
to keep me on the right road
down the right path to not stray away

So let it ring out loud
make it as clear as day
I don't wanna let this gift
Go To Waste X2
