Track Name: Olly Olly Oxen Free
There's a lady on a mountain I don't know,
and all that she wants is silver and gold.
There's a man down in the valley I've never seen,
and all that he wants is the lady.

and He prays everyday for piece of heart.
and She prays everyday for peace of mind.
then they hear, for whatsoever ye shall seek,
ye shall find.

So the lady sails away to a place made of silver and gold.
and the man went up the mountain and called her name.
"You can search the whole world over and over, for what you think you need. But my dear lady, its back on your mountain with me."

Olly Olly Oxen Free
Do you know what you want
Do you want what you need
Olly Olly Oxen Free

There's a battle between two shades of green
you can search for your fortune afar
or come out, come out wherever you are.
For whatsoever ye shall seek, Ye shall find,
Your treasures been here the whole time.
The grass is green right under your feet
the fruits of your labors are just as sweet
you just gotta know what you want
and want what you need.

Olly Olly Oxen Free
Do you know what you want
Do you want what you need
Olly Olly Oxen Free

Olly Olly Oxen Free
Do you know what you want
Do you want what you need
Olly Olly Oxen Free

There's a lady and a man I don't know
and all that they have, is more than silver and gold
Track Name: Robot Love Song
My hearts been stolen by a robot, robot
My system's crashing on the floor.
No assembly was required
He knew exactly how I was wired

My hearts been stolen by a robot, robot
Yes, He is too good to be true
this perfect man must have been manufactured
programmed with everything that I've been after

All I feel
Can't be real
I didn't know
that two could be
so compatible

My Hearts been stolen by a robot, robot
He broke through my fire wall
the only one who could hack my system
should pull the plug but
I can't resist him

All I feel
Can't be real
I didn't know
that two could be
so compatible

system over,system over, system overload...

But How do I know you're not an evil cyborg
sent here to destroy me
a virus detection could explain your perfection
or can it be, can you be real.
or are you a robot?

You're the zero to my 0-to my 11-0110 -11011 oh
been so good to restrain it
the only way to explain it is he must be
ya you must be, a heart stealing robot

My heart's been stolen by a robot,robot
Track Name: What I Wanted
What I wanted wasn’t what I thought it was
I was afraid I lost myself along the way because
What I wanted wasn’t what I thought it was
But as long as I still have your love
It doesn’t matter
that what I wanted wasn’t
what I thought it was

Verse I:
When he was young spitfire fueled his dreams
He had the high-rise office
The Ivy League degree
His name upon the desk and on the door
But no time for the ones that he had done it for
No he never saw the ones he’d done it for

Then the day came that every Father fears
They let him go with severance and thanked him for his years
He fought against the burn behind his eyes
And he begged the Lord to let this be
A blessing in disguise

Chorus:
For some plans
Go up in smoke
And when it clears
we finally see what matter most
Some roads
were always dead ends
but we turn around and begin again
If you find yourself back at the start
You can always change your mind
Just never change your heart

Verse 2:
So if there ever comes a day, My Dear
When you don’t recognize the person in the mirror
Be honest with yourself and with me
We’ll find a path that leads to who you want to be
As long as you still believe in us
It doesn’t matter
that what you wanted wasn’t what you thought it was.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
I’ll pour the gasoline
You strike the match
We’ll burn this old dream
And start again from scratch

What I wanted wasn’t what I thought it was
I was afraid I lost myself along the way because
What I wanted wasn’t what I thought it was
But as long as I still have your love
It doesn’t matter
that what I wanted wasn’t
what I thought it was
Track Name: Loved By Me
Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
it was hard to let go of your hand
as I watched those bright eyes, fill up with wonder
I hope that you understand

That is you can dream it
you can be it
you only have to believe
(I believe)

You can a doctor
fly a helicopter
open a restaurant with your dad
Drive a racecar
play the keytar
rockin' in the garage
or lead the marching band

There's so many things that you can do
you can do anything you put your mind to
the only thing I know with all certainty is
whatever you are gonna be,
you're gonna be loved by me.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life
the world, it belongs to you
and I hope and pray that you'll be safe
and that all your dreams come true

cuz if you can think it
it can be done
there's no limit to what you can become

you can be a writer
a swat team crime fighter
or join the circus as the greatest unicycle rider
Be on broadway
battle out tooth decay
or make the popcorn
for the weekend matinee
There's so many things that you can do
You can do anything you put your mind to
the only thing I know with all certainty
is whatever you're gonna be
You're gonna be loved by me.

You may find
that while you are tryin'
plans can fall apart
but do your best everyday
and good will come your way
and you'll always have my heart

That is you can dream it
you can be it
you only have to believe
(i believe)

you can be a magician
a pediatrician
or build a robot and send him on a secret mission
be a math teacher
or swim with sea creatures
like old Jacque Cousteau
or you could win the Superbowl
There's so many things that you can do
You can do anything you put your mind to
the only thing I know with all certainty
is whatever you're gonna be
You're gonna be loved by me.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
Track Name: Best Part of Tennessee
Girl, you can make it
all you need is a little luck
so get yourself a rabbits foot to rub

the quickest way from point a to b
is to get yourself going
but I don't know
if going there is for me

Cuz the human heart is full of curves
like a road through the smokies
or down the river that bends
or the love that wraps around two best friends
I believe that luck is believing you are lucky
and I believe the best part of Tennessee
came to me

I guess you can hope that
you'll be in the right place at the right time
but I already was there
when I met that man of mine
the quickest way from point a to b
is to get yourself going
but I don't care where Im going
as long as he's with me

Cuz the human heart is full of curves
like a road through the smokies
or down the river that bends
or the love that wraps around two best friendsI believe that luck is believing you are lucky
and I believe the best part of Tennessee
came to me

They call it music city
where the songbirds go to sing
but if its not in my cards
or part of the plan
I'll sing your love song from wherever I am
cuz I believe that luck is believing your lucky
and I believe the best part of Tennessee came to me
Track Name: Up the Hill
So often he'd pass a view off the road without a second glance
the sight to be seen may be extraordinary but he wont even give it chance
to catch his eye, cuz its just the sky
He knows that someday he will
but now he's gotta get up the hill

She steps off the train, morning air hits her face
and she barely realized
there was a man with his guitar, sharing his whole heart
but she won't look him in the eye
Don't have the time, can't spare a dime
She knows that someday she will
But now she's gotta get up the hill

Why do we always seem to be in a hurry
When will we ever recognize
we are passing life by

Up the Hill, gotta get up the Hill
I got my blinders on and I will until
I get myself up the Hill

There they are, right under our noses
could be so sweet if we'd only
stop and smell those roses
ashes, ashes, we all fall down
but I won't fall, no I won't fall till I'm up the hill.

I'll Enjoy Life, Once I'm upright on the Hill

She steps off the train, morning air hits her face
and she finally realized she was passing life by
to get up the hill, up the hill...
Track Name: Time and Place
Everyday feels the same
She walks alone with her music loud
She's given up on fittin in
No need to impress the cool crowd
Wishing that time would move faster
looking forward to what come after
right now, but right now

This is your time
This is your place
Its no accident You're here
So don't wish it away
Look around
and you will see
there is somebody who needs you
You are where you are meant to be

Yes, there are better days to come
But don't let that keep you from
living today, this is your time
this is your place

You never know
whats around the bend
so adjust those sails
to catch the wind
Try not to compare another side of the fence
to yours
This is your time
This is your place
Its no accident you're here
So don't wish it away
Look around
and you will see
there's somebody who needs you
You are where you are meant to be

Yes, there are better days to come
But don't let that keep you from
living today, this is your time
this is your place

Right here right now has only just begun
don't let what happened yesterday keep you from
your time
Everyday is not the same
Track Name: Arizona Memo
Peak my head out, see that the sun
is blazing down on just about everything
but it doesn't see cheeky little me
I'm safe in four inches of shade on this joshua tree
but the voices calling from the north
its time to use these feathers
hold my breath and make the choice
to finally leave the desert

Arizona, my heart is your forever
Arizona, Don't think of me
as the type who's only there in fair weather
I hope you know
how I hate to go
but like the old saguaro
please keep your arms wide open
till I come home

Hair is blowin', the windows are down
we're tossing out every care
on that Carefree highway
There's so many places
I have never been
cuz every chance I get
I keep comin' your way
the voices calling from the South
Its time to use those feathers
Hold my breath cuz I'm about
to finally see the desert

Arizona, my heart is your forever
Arizona, Don't think of me
as the type who's only there in fair weather
I hope you know
how I hate to go
but like the old saguaro
please keep your arms wide open
till I come home

Peak my head out, see that the sun
is blazin' down on just about everything...
Track Name: Two Pins
When you lose a lot when you're little
You tend to guard what you've got
unintentional walls and fences will go up
And you'll wear a thick skin
Don't let anybody in
cuz you never know
when someones' gonna go
Someone you love

But you broke right through
so easily
as if the ones that had to go
sent you to me

Two pins on a giant map
with so much space in between
the Heavens knew
just how to fill the gap with out
connecting string
yes its easy to see,
they sent you to me

Ten years down the road
we've been all over the world
a Colorado Boy, an Indiana Girl
Working hard for all we have
praying for a guiding hand
and it feels so right
to be by your side
almost like it were planned

Two pins on a giant map
with so much space in between
the Heavens knew
just how to fill the gap with out
connecting string
yes its easy to see,
they sent you to me

If I could go back
I'd take that same path
wrap that string around again
your pin to my pin

Two pins on a giant map
with so much space in between
the Heavens knew
just how to fill the gap with out
connecting string
yes its easy to see,
they sent you to me
Track Name: Tree House Chapter
Almost Every Saturday, Is spent at her place
Never know if she’ll remember who we are
She’ll call me someone else’s name, I’ll smile anyway
I hate to admit it but at times it is hard to stay

It all was slowly taken
And even though my heart is breakin’
I am grateful that I get to hear
About how

Every afternoon she’d be up
where the sun would shine through
And the leaves would dance to
The music of her laughter
Her mind had returned to a sweeter stage
Where her heart had left a dog-eared page
No her story’s not your typical ever after
But she’s happy in her Tree House Chapter

The same stories are retold, Often filled with holes
Repeat the answer to tough questions always asked
Like how is the farm, is your daddy working hard
She can’t remember that he and Grandpa have passed

Watch her eyes try to fit together the pieces
And I can’t deny that it’s one of Gods good graces
The way she can recall every detail
To one of her favorite places

Every afternoon she’d be up
where the sun would shine through
And the leaves would dance to
The music of her laughter
Her mind had returned to a sweeter stage
Where her heart had left a dog-eared page
No her story’s not your typical ever after
But she’s happy in her Tree House Chapter

Singing with the morning glory
Reliving her favorite part of her life story

Repeat Chorus
Until she returns to a sweeter place
She’ll be telling that story with a smile on her face
Happy ever after, in her Tree House chapter
Track Name: Little Things
Find a penny
Pick it up
Not only for good fortune
Not only for luck
Now you have more
Than you had before
Don’t let the little things
Get forgotten

Overlooked
Swept under the rug
The little things
Are what this life is made of
So remember that I love you
And that pennies are money too
Don’t let the little things
Get forgotten

The way you twirl your hair
When you’re falling to sleep
Pockets full of shiny stones
That make your collection complete
Always on tippy-toes
Those little bare feet
Don’t let these little things get forgotten

Overlooked
Swept under the rug
The little things
Are what this life is made of
So remember that I love you
And that pennies are money too
Don’t let the little things
Get forgotten

Every Dandelion picked
To place behind my ear
The way you hum your favorite song
When you think no one can hear
After every bedtime kiss
I pray to always remember this
Don’t let the little things get forgotten

Overlooked
Swept under the rug
The little things
Are what this life is made of
So remember that I love you
And that pennies are money too
Don’t let the little things
Get forgotten
