Track Name: Fill Me Up
Hello how you doin'?
Thanks I'm doin' fine
But really what we doin'
'Cause we're runnin' out of time

Got a fancy new car
But will it fill my soul?
So empty of love
That I ask above to

Fill me up
Fill me up
Oh fill me up
Till I overflow, overflow
With love

Got an office in the city
But am I doin' what I love?
Workin' nine to five, a third of my life
Is that what I really want?

Got a lotta friends, got a lotta charm
But loneliness still hasn't gone
So to you I go and let it overflow, overflow

Fill me up
Fill me up
Oh, fill me up
Till I overflow, overflow
With love

I know, I can't do this on my own
The time is here
So close, just surrender and carry me home
Track Name: Reluctant Love
When I look in your eyes, I recognize
This sadness, is it yours or mine?

If I let myself go, loss all control
Oh baby, can you read my restless mind?

Diamond in the rough
Never enough
Reluctant love

When I lay in your arms, so safe and warm
I wonder, could I lay in the arms of another?

If you gave everything, all that I need
Temptation, could you give me the sun and the sea?

Diamond in the rough
Are you enough?
Reluctant love

Oooh, this apathy
Fear that you'll leave me

Reluctant love, reluctant love
Reluctant love
Could I be enough?
Track Name: Whisper
Will you touch me?
My baby, oh baby

Just a whisper on my skin
And let the night begin
Oh baby, my baby

Will you hold me?
My only, oh only

We can turn down the lights
Dancing all through the night
Oh only, my only
Track Name: Home and Free (ft. Sam Hammerman)
Once there was only a girl
She couldn't see the weight of the world
With a veil over her eyes
She lived in her own paradise

She moved to the city one day
Searching for something, she couldn't say
Pain and strife all around,
Weighing her down

Home and free she longs to be again

Awake in the night she lay
Sounds of the street just won't go away
Felt the call, like a bell through the fog
To return to where she belonged

On a train, with the rise of the sun
Fluorescent lights fade one by one
Through the window, a field catches fire
She feels so strong her true desire

Home and free she longs to be again

She returned back through the front door
And saw all the faces she knew before
But something changed deep inside
She found the peace that never dies

Home and free she knows she can be all the time
Wherever she goes
Home and free she'll always be.
Track Name: Mountains in the Wind
I want to be there for you
Wipe all your tears, embrace your fears
But I've got my scars
Shadows in my heart

I know I've got a long way to go.

Want you to be there for me
See all the things that others don't see
You've made your mistakes
But I won't go away

I know you have got a long way to go
Don't fear, you won't be alone.

We can be mountains in the wind
So we can lean, and we won't cave in
We've made our mistakes
But we'll try our best today

I know we have got a long way to go
Don't fear, we won't be alone.
