Track Name: return
I am waiting for you to return to me
I am waiting for you to return
I am ready for you to come home to me
I am ready for you to come home
Track Name: otherwise
what is this life
what is this life of mine?
the work that I've done
my relation to the sun
the hands I have held
the story I tell otherwise?
what is this life
what is this life of mine?
Track Name: to be known
if you're feeling disconnected
I'm here to plug you in
and if you're standing on the other side
I'm here to build the bridge

trains: we're just passing through
but if you're listening, we'll sing to you

I can be at home
and be alone with you
I can be alone
and be at home with you

trains: we're just passing through
but if you're listening, we'll sing to you

O, my heart is glad to be known by you
Track Name: pride
if I lowered my voice to a whisper
would these words be more eager to be heard?
and If I humbled my heart to the size of a coin
would you wear it in your moccasins or toss it in a well?
would you make a good investment
multiply its worth by four
or would it help you make decisions
(heads is yes, and tails is no)

and what does it say
when you don't know the song
but you know how to play
and what does it mean
when you don't know the words
but you know how to sing

if I cut off all of my hair
and laid it plainly at your feet
would you give me a scarf to cover my head
or say "one cannot die if they are already dead"

and what does it say
when you just want the spirit
but you don't know how to pray
