Lyrics

December 31

Written By: Paul Carlson

another foggy day
world without sky
everything surreal
sun unrevealed
this repetition
kills my convictions

oh
i'm stuck in december
oh
can't keep it together
every tear that falls tears down
undoes all i've done
in pieces now and still
december 31

new year won't come
still 11:59
but the ball's dropped now
for the 24th time

(chorus)

if you make all things new
why do i feel the same
i'm a preview of my future shame
if you make all things new
if you make all things new
why do i feel the same

Take My Time

Written By: Josh Lee

You've given me everything I need
You've given me life beyond these ordinary things
All my hopes and all my dreams
Are listening closely for you to set them free

And I
I need you to see
I'm not scared of you
I'm just scared of me

I won't take my time I'll take my heart
I will find in time I'll shine like stars
It's gonna take time just to find out who you are
I'm not gonna take my time
I'm not gonna take my time
I'm not gonna take my time I'll take my heart

When I'm with you I feel whole
Now I know freedom with you in control
All my faults and all my deeds
Are waiting patiently for you to wash them clean

And I
I need you to see
I'm not scared of you
I'm just scared of me

I won't take my time I'll take my heart
I will find in time I'll shine like stars
It's gonna take time just to find out who you are
I'm not gonna take my time
I'm not gonna take my time
I'm not gonna take my time I'll take my heart

Missouri

Written By: Josh Lee & Paul Carlson

planted a home there in missouri
it was cold and dark but just fine for me
well I kept warm with my conscience and safe in my memories
in missouri you can go for days without seeing your soul
and the years you spent searching will just leave you old

when your feelings get all mixed up inside
and you cannot tell if you're living or just alive

cause trees don't grow in missouri
and the grass don't blow in missouri
and the truth is i'm done with missouri
I've got a new state of mind

got in my car and I drove all night
got the yellow line need to keep right by its side
big ol' stars keep on shining bright
cool wind in my face nothing holding me back tonight

sorry I was held up so long
didn't mean to take my time
now misery is leaving the horizon
leave the light on 'cause I'm coming home
leave the light on 'cause I'm coming home
