Track Name: Tumbling Down
When you are near
My heart feels like it’s
Tumbling tumbling tumbling down
My heart feels like it’s
Tumbling tumbling tumbling down


The sensation of your love
Is heaven scent from up above
Comes tumbling into my mind
And dwells deep in my heart
The wellspring of your life
Pour more than anyone could supply
Whenever you draw near
Your words are love and release tears


Revelations of this love
Lift my soul from death to life
They come tumbling through this heart
With peace that never departs
This everlasting life is true
And that I never deny
And when you draw me close
Your words are what I breathe the most


Everyday
Get a little stronger
All the way
Loves is mine whatever
Yours always
Be with you forever
And I wanna stay
With you always
Track Name: Forever Free
If I release what's in my heart
Do you promise me you won't tear it apart
If I should give to you my life
Do you promise me that my life will survive
If I should give to you my love
How will I know if it'll be enough
If I should leave this in your hands
Can you guarantee I'll be able to stand

Forever free, Forever young
Forever in the arms of someone I love
Forever free, Forever young
Forever in the arms of someone who loves me

Will you take my hand and walk with me
Through the valleys, over the hills and to the forest green
Will you take my little hand and let me fly
Over the hilltops, out of the valleys to the mountains high


If I forgive what's in the past
Will it make our love more able to last
If I should give up whatever is wrong
Will it make our love even stronger
If I should give to you from my soul
Will you help me reach my final goal
If I should reach deep down inside
Do you promise me your love will abide

Forever free, Forever young
Walking down the path that's lined with your love
Forever free, Forever young
Forever in the arms of some one who loves me

Walking down the pathways of life
Sharing love and hope and trying to do what's right
Looking back brings back such memories
Of how we lived our love and found our freedom
Track Name: Help Me
You smile, your eyes grow big as they hide
The pressure, the load you bear
It almost seems you have no cares
You look in the other direction
Cover yourself with conversation
Reading between the lines
It's easy to see the signs

Help me
I stumble with my pride
Hold everything inside
But how can the real me be free
When everyone knows this as the real me



Burying feelings deep inside
How much more will you deny
Which way will you go from here
Even more pressure drawing near
You've covered yourself in deep depression
If only you'd found the right expression
Needing to explode
Implosion due to overload

Help me
I stumble with my pride
Hold everything inside
But how can the real me be free
When everyone knows this as the real me



In crying eyes there is no shame
Let go your tears, there's life to gain
Instead of inward, look outward
To the wealth of hands held out in love to you

Help me
I stumble with my pride
Hold everything inside
But how can the real me be free
When I don't even know what it is to be me
Track Name: My Legacy
What's it like not to own your own life?
Like a kid caught up in genocide.
A child caught up in their parents hate
Not their own destiny but their fathers fate.

Forced through the gate
Onto a road they're driven
Could this life be really worth living?

Confusion
As to who we are
Can only step so far
Can only reach so far

Held captive
By the sin they're in
Not their own doing
But their life's in ruins
So far

But you have you own heart
And the door is ajar
For fate to be changed
Destiny rearranged

Bow to the shackle?
Or fight your battle?

Life won't remain broken
When my heart stays open

Perpetuate the same?
Or perpetuate the change?
In whose name will you play out your life's game?
Your forefathers and you aren't one and the same.

Release your ball and chain
That's been wrapped around your brain.

Don't continue the pain
Don't continue disaster
Look after
That which you're called to master

Astound
Those who kept you down

Wounded in the heart soul body and spirit
Can we hear this
Can you hear this?
Track Name: Permission
I don't even know you
I don't know your name anymore

VERSE 1
There was a time, I thought that you were mine
You came to me with so many possibilities
But now you've changed
I don't even know your name

CHORUS
You don't have to love me anymore
Permission, just to walk out through that door
Because you came to me so easily
I have to let you go, as far as I can see

You came into my life
And made it beautiful for a while
Now I can see, I gave too easily
A broken heart and so much pain
But I can't wait to see you again
But I don't know
You turned so cold on me

VERSE 2
I used to believe that you needed me
I used to believe that you completed me
But now you've changed
I don't even know your name

CHORUS
You don't have to love me anymore
Permission just to walk out through that door
Because you came to me so easily
I have to let you go, as far as I can see

You came into my life
You made me laugh, you made me smile
Now I can see, It was just temporary
A broken heart and so much pain
But I can't wait to see you again
But I don't know
You turned so cold on me

I don't even know you
I don't know your name anymore
