Track Name: Compass
I’ve been wandering, walking in my sleep
But I prefer to call it out chasing dreams
I’ve been wondering thinking aimlessly
praying on my knees, God help me please
I get so lost in my own head
I’ll need a compass for where I am heading
I don’t know how to get there but I’ll keep on running
The mile markers have been keeping me going
Keeping my faith and hoping it’s working
I was never good with directions
I just stuck to what I know
Landmarks, familiar faces, I need a stepping stone
Or a paved yellow brick road
Something to find my way back home
I get so lost in my own head looking for the answers
I just get lost sometimes
Track Name: Because
I could never look ahead so i kept focus on my feet
As if they knew where to take me besides down the same old streets
As if they’re shuffling on to better things
I’ll keep on walking this town until it started to rain
Just because I know my roots doesn’t mean that I’ll get planted there
My ship is sinking, It’s hard to just stay afloat
Been treading water for years and it’s all I know
My feet are fumbling for some solid ground or maybe something to stand on
I could never look ahead so i just closed my eyes
And I hoped for the best and stuck to guiding lights
Just because I know my roots doesn’t mean that I’ll get planted there
You better move your feet or you’ll get stuck here
You better learn to breath or you’ll burn out
Track Name: Remember When
When I was younger I had it all figured out
I had nothing left but living and I still hadnt met doubt
As I got older my head started spinning
From a handful of those moments that left me staring at the ceiling
I’m not bitter, but I would go back
I’ve been revisiting old memories, but they all seem to close the door on me
They say I’m not who I used to be, I guess I changed more than I’d like to think
The next thing I knew I was getting well adjusted
I had settled into habbits and thats what I trusted in
When nothing ever went the way we planned it
But if it did it wouldn’t have made a difference
I’m not sorry for how I turned out
Remember when, Remember when you said, “you’re the one I’ll carry with me.”
Track Name: Jesus Paid It All
I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small;
Child of weakness, watch and pray,
Find in Me thine all in all.”

Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

Lord, now indeed I find
Thy pow’r, and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.


And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete
Jesus died my soul to save
My lips shall still repeat

Oh Praise the One who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead.
