Track Name: First Lights on the Hwy.
It's the slow light through the window
It's the light that shines through the blinds
And makes me say...

Good morning

It's the lone lights on the highway
It's the long day through the long night
It's the long ride out this morning
It's the morning...

Good morning

Time to leave this city
I know it won't be easy
I don't think I can keep hanging around

It's the sunlight all over my closed eyes
And it sings and calls
And I can remember the waterfall
Oh my lord I remember it all

It's the long drive away from the sunrise
Every single yellow line in front of my car
My heart knows the ocean's where I start

That horizons where I fall
Out into nothing at all
Track Name: Katie's Song
So... As far as I'm concerned
Our first kiss was at the top of these stairs, right here
And it's more than I deserve
But for this I am finally prepared

And I'm not gonna fall back down again
Can't believe I climbed this high
And I know I've once lost my balance
But I'm going to hold onto you this time

Oh my love, As far as I'm concerned
This verse is the beginning of our song
The past was a rough draft and it hurts
To think about missing out on you for so long
I never thought that I could go so wrong

But when you told me that you loved me
Through tears and muffled by my shirt
My whole heart opened. It was swollen with knowing.
And that moment was golden. I was floating.
And exploding...

Katie, I will stay with you
If you decide to let me stay
I realize this is real and I wanna lay the bricks
and put in the time

Outside your apartment,
The rain and the passing traffic
Got me believing in magic
Cuz sometimes it happens
Track Name: Rain
I hear the rain
And I know that it's not over for me
I believe, I see
Kumbaya finally...

I walked down the lane
And I've never seen anything greener
I see, I believe
I'm finally where I belong
