It starts from a distance It starts with confusion It starts with a story of good and bad It starts from a young age fueled by a deep fear So that I can’t hear the words you say You are a number lost in a news-brief You are a flower growing in concrete Dark in the shadows a beautiful mess Looking for grace, and looking for rest I am a young girl, I do not know much Fate had its way with me and so did love I’m trying to pay back my stars, I’m learning each day I gotta get out of my own way It starts with a handshake, it starts with a full name It starts with a hello, how are you It comes from a deep place fueled by a strong heart And the listening is where to start We may speak a different tongue but one day there’ll come a time When all your pain and all your joy will become one with mine And then the roof will start to cave and the walls will crumble down And in that wreckage only is where we’ll find solid ground It starts from a distance It starts with confusion It starts with a hello, how are you

We walk a winding road Or so I'm told A mountain range Nights get cold Close we are now Still the gap wide I don't know you I've tried and tried And the winds will blow us side to side And the clouds will roll in Will you keep me warm Can we dance through the storm We have waded into muddy water Slept above the fog and Cried under the moon I can see our dying days Deepest of them all Can you too Yes we scare me Doubt a near friend Chest a gnarly tree But you are laughter You are lightning And I do love you And the winds will blow us side to side And the clouds will roll in Will you keep me warm Can we dance through the storm Can we dance

Lost Love 03:29
When you first told me, I didn’t cry I went to my toolbox, we made apple pie I’m a fixer, not a fighter So began the unraveling The house we built, such a fragile thing Didn’t know how fast the frames could fall And the world spins madly on Lost love an ancient song And freedom a lonesome thing Moves the heart to sing When you first told me, I didn't run I have the patience of a setting sun Even when night falls, I light up the moon And my blood has yet to boil Hard to blame a growing boy But slow does a heart heal without anger's rage And the world spins madly on Lost love an ancient song And freedom a lonesome thing Moves the heart to sing Summer's gone, the heat has faded Other lips I have tasted Learning to love a different shape But you still find me in the night Slip through my ribcage like a firefly Light up the ruins and float away And the world spins madly on Lost love an ancient song And freedom a lonesome thing Moves the heart to sing

My Dear 03:54
I dreamed of a dance with you my dear We’d only just met, but it felt like years Time is strange in love, I’ve learned The endless moments, the speeding blur New words we speak, new rules my dear From faraway paths we now meet here You see my heart and I see yours And all of that power’s worth fighting for I wake with a smile beside you dear This love is new, raw, and fierce Our hearts are weaving like two vines Strengthened by the sun, each other’s light Still young, though, it is - our match my dear You joke of the end, we laugh away fear If this love should die before we do At least we’ve known a bond this true And it takes all kinds to make a world All abuzz in the hive And I’m growing with you and you with me How sweet this flight

Grow On 02:51
There’s a thought in my head today Only one thought What if it changed, what if you stayed There’s a weight in my chest today Weight in my chest Burning me down, burning me down, burning my ground There’s loss here in the forest Loss here in the fire Loss here, I don’t know me anymore Don’t know me anymore There’s a hole in my heart today Hole in my heart Calling for you Calling for grace Stealing my faith There’s loss here in the forest Loss here in the fire Loss here, I don’t know me anymore Don’t know me anymore There’s strength in my spine today Out of the ash, stretching for sun For anyone Fighting to say I will grow on
