Track Name: Safe Keeping
If I knew how to sew
I'd take the most elaborate threads
And a crisp handkerchief
Unfolded
I would proceed to sew
The most elaborate scenes on it
Of you and the time we spent
Together

Then I would put it away
Fold it into a neat square
And tuck it into my heart
For Safekeeping
Track Name: The Hollow
You were broken and bent in two
Pieces of your heart were strewn
Across the branches by the riverbed
But now you're in the palm of His hand

Let's go down to the Hollow
Lay our sorrows down beside our hopes
Then we'll rise beneath His sky
And let go
We'll let go

Child, you see the road is long
Dividing lines are drawn
Down the center of all we know
The cores shakes from the Holy Ghost

Let's go, down to the Hollow
We'll lay our sorrows down beside our hopes
Then we'll rise beneath His sky
Let go
We'll let go

And if these threadbare words fall short
Of sewing up your wounded heart
And tenderly restoring you, my friend
We'll sing a new song and begin again

Let's go down to the Hollow
And lay our sorrows down beside our hopes
Then we'll rise beneath His sky
And let go
We'll let go
Let's go down to the Hollow
And lay our sorrows down beside our hopes
Then we'll rise beneath His sky
And let go
Child, let go
We'll let go, we'll let go
Let go, we'll let go
Let go,
Let go, we'll let go
Oooo
Track Name: Home
Long ago, the snow drifted down,
Landing on my lashes
I could see through my blinking eyes
Where I used to live

This was my childhood, where it was warm
Patchwork of moments textured in freedom
This was the sunlight on my skin
Where every heartbeat
Brought me straight back home

Now I go through a complex world
And simplicity sleeps
In the glimpse of a time gone by
Where endless summer lived

This was my childhood, where it was warm
Patchwork of moments textured in freedom
This was the sunlight on my skin
Where every heartbeat
Brought me straight back home
Track Name: Long Distance Love (Stay)
I know sleep is in the distant skies
Sun is rising in the east
The candlelight is almost out
But my heart is on my sleeve
My heart is on my sleeve

I don’t want to leave your side
In the morning I won’t say Goodbye
I don’t want to leave your side
In the morning I won’t say This is ok
Cuz I don’t wanna leave

Somewhere overhead a plane flies
Into the morning sun
But I don’t wanna fly away from here
I don’t wanna run
I don’t wanna run

I don’t want to leave Your side
In the morning I won’t say Goodbye
I don’t want to leave Your side
In the morning I won’t say This is ok
Cuz I don’t wanna leave
Track Name: Girl from Nowhere, Ontario
Girl from Nowhere
Can’t shake off the dust
You’ve got a dreamer’s heart
But it’s started to rust
You sit on your front porch
For hours a day
And think about starting
It over again

So you walk in your bare feet
To the IGA
Let yourself feel every stone
Along the way
Till right up on Main Street
At the South Side
You let it all in
And you start to cry

Now you’ve got salt on your hands
From the salt in your eyes
Girl from Nowhere, Ontario
Afraid you got left behind

You got left behind

You’ve got salt on your hands
From the salt in your eyes
Girl from Nowhere, Ontario
Afraid you got
Left behind

You got left behind

Girl from Nowhere, Ontario
Girl from Nowhere, Ontario
