Track Name: The Golden Age of Dreams
The golden age of dreams
Is on its way no matter what it seems

Like the rings of age
Mark the life of one tree
So we turn way so we can see

The golden age of dreams
Will be set free:
the freest energy

What is yet to be perceived, yeah
Was washed out to sea
Now it glows, as lava flows
At the bottom of the ocean

And all the humans and computers yet to breathe the breath And the sweetest paradox- when spoke, it's still unsaid

But the golden age of dreams
Will be set free and unleashed (now here we go)
Track Name: Let The Door Swing
Let's let the door swing and then we'll see
Let the door swing 'cause we've
Got lots of time to be anything we wanna be
And then we'll see
Let's let the door swing as in the spring
Let the door swing 'cause we've
Got lots of time to be anything we wanna be
And then we'll see
In and out as in a saloon or as the paths of the moon
No one knows what's coming soon so when you see the door, pass through
In and out like an old back screen like a fade from black to green
What can't be seen can still be true, so when you see the door...
I can't be afraid of a change 'cause a change is always on the way
On another length wave, as it comes as it comes as it comes
Authoritarians fall and we could have it all
On another length wave, as it comes as it comes as it comes
Let the door swing
Track Name: Love Is Coming Back
My love is coming back to me
Love is coming back
And the best things haven't happened yet
So what is love?
Love is coming back

Wild fires will burn out loud
Like a style, burn from bright to black
And for those who wonder where its at
Tell them, "love"
Love is coming back

My love is coming back to me
Love is coming back
And the future shines in a crazy way
What can I say?
Love is coming back

My love is coming back to me
Love is coming back
Like the sweetest summer when we met
How it feels
When love is coming back
Track Name: Be My Girl
Who's gonna give back what we take?
Well me, I've seen the love we make
So I won't get down, when I'm lost and confused
I know you're gonna be my girl
So don't get down, drop the weight of the world
I know you're gonna be my girl

What could I do?
Tell me what could I do?
Can we make it on time?
Gotta make it on time

I've seen a path that we could take
We've got so much love to make
So I won't get down
When I'm lost and confused
I know you're gonna be my girl
Track Name: I Want You
I never knew that I was lonely 'til I found you, that's when I knew
Because you came along and showed me that there's more to life than struggle and strife
I used to think I was the only one 'til I found you that's when I knew
I could be anything I wanted and I wanted you, yes I want you

What would you do if I was on the moon so far away what could I say?
Good thing you came along and showed me that there's more to life, there's a better way
I used to think I was the only one just to float in space in a cold place
You be the air, I'll make an atmosphere 'cause that's why I'm here, I still want you

Oh I want you, because I love you
So don't go away, don't go away
Track Name: Stray Light
Nobody can be like me
Nobody can be the same as me
'Cause when I feel this
It's like one tree catching light
STRAY LIGHT

Nobody can be like you
Nobody comes close to who you are
Cause when I feel your love
It's like one tree catching light
STRAY LIGHT
Track Name: Are You at Peace?
Are you at peace?
Do you believe I could be at peace?
At peace

The image of rain
The beauty of what we can't control
Love can't be contained
So lets give it away and let it go

Now tell me are you at peace?
I think you deserve to be
At peace with yourself and the love that you've felt

At the edge of the lake
We'll find a way of diving in
Suspended in air
We're gonna wash away

Now tell me are you at peace?
Do you believe I could be at peace?
At peace
Track Name: Evolutionary Step
Won't you let the next evolutionary step be wings
We could get the very best perspective over things
And when we rise we gonna rise up a new species
Don't be surprised, the next evolutionary step is wings

This is not a dream, its the future don't it come so quickly
When you're only 17 the next evolutionary step is wings
In the myth of flight, we get pulled by the stray light
But it just seems right

We will adapt and little wings will flap over generations
Just give it time, and let the body be innovator
Its only natural that fiction becomes fact and it has begun
We will adapt and everyone'll clap in flying ovations, yeah

When I'm flying away
Don't say that I'm not yours

Won't you let the next evolutionary step be wings
When you break a sweat you get the very best perspective over things
And in the sky we will glide and it will be routine
Don't be surprised, the next evolutionary step is wings
Track Name: My Life Is Mine
My life, my life, who's holding on to my life?
If tonight's the night, somebody better hold on to my life

So let's step out tonight and run away
Because my life is mine
The only things held are the ones set free
So I say to my life: "you belong to me"

I'm in control as long as I'm on a roll
So once we start let's go, let the momentum flow

When such a radiant power has run astray
Say, "my life is mine"
Even if I don't move in a straight line
I'll say, "my life is mine- you belong to me"

My life my life, who's holding on to my life?
When its right, its right. But I gotta hold on to my life
Track Name: Arctic Flowers
Arctic Flowers would never grow
Without someone to hold
And so our lives are held in a marigold

Moments captured in the soft green
And bursts of summer gold
And in this way we are new again

And you
You came to me
With changes we can't see
And just like the break of day
Well its not gonna always be that way

In the stem of a marigold

I was walking down avenues

Moments captured in the soft green
And bursts of summer gold
And in this way we are new again
