Track Name: Tracks
If you want to know me ask these fields
Where every blade of grass has acted like a shield
Holding memories of mine
Now I'm inviting you inside to

Walk the paths I used to roam
See the land I call my home
Hear the train tracks shuddering
Sit by the pond where I fell in

If you want to know me climb the trees
Every branch could tell a story about me
Listen to the whispers in the breeze
Let them blow away your worries

Walk the paths I used to roam
See the land I call my home
Hear the train tracks shuddering
Sit by the pond where I fell in

Take a seat upon the hill
Hold yourself against the chill
Above the city that raised me
In these fields where I ran free
Track Name: Taking Shape
We're trading places
And you're taking shape
And I’ll make a space for you
We make mistakes
And we're always changing
And my heart would break for you

Words are hammers as they preach
Telling us how we should heal
But it is not a simple truth

Closing in, angry sky
Reaching in so we can’t hide
But I will try to fight for you

Heavy air surrounds us
The heat threatens to drown us
We’re broken but can’t break through

We're trading places
And you're taking shape
And I’ll make a space for you
We make mistakes
And we're always changing
And my heart would break for you

Our bodies lie beyond their reach
We’re tangled up in things we need
I am melting into you

We're trading places
And you're taking shape
And I’ll make a space for you
We make mistakes
And we're always changing
And my heart would break for you

We're trading places
And you're taking shape
And I’ll make a space for you
Track Name: Home
With you is the only place that feels like home
But how long will you stay, I don't know
I'm scared, I'm scared of there being no-one
I'm scared, I'm scared to walk alone

I don't know why you keep on walking away
What have I done
How can I make you stay
Make it stop I don't like the rain today
I want to stay dry
I don't want to take the blame

With you is the only place that feels like home
But how long will you stay, I don't know
I'm scared, I'm scared of there being no-one
I'm scared, I'm scared to walk alone

Maybe it's time I stop letting the tide suck me in
Gotta start swimming
Maybe it's time but I don't know how to begin
I've been treading water
Gotta learn to swim

With you is the only place that feels like home
But how long will you stay, I don't know
I'm scared, I'm scared of there being no-one
I'm scared, I'm scared to walk alone

With you is the only place that feels like home
But how long will you stay, I don't know
I'm scared, I'm scared of there being no-one
I'm scared, I'm scared to walk alone
Track Name: Footprints
Sometimes my reflection is unclear
My eyes are clouded by the things I fear
I want to build something strong but I can barely carry on
Take me home, take me home

I stare down to the water
I step into the river
I’m carried by the ripples
And a thousand tiny cries
Teach me, I’m your daughter
Take me to the answer
I’m carried by the trickles
And the thousand times I tried

‘cause I don’t know where I’m meant to go
But I’ll leave my footprints to follow home
And I’m not sure what I’m waiting for 
But one day I’ll make sense of it all

Strong against the calling of regret
I closed my ears to its worried threats
Something calls out to me, there is more than what you see
You are more, than you’ve known before

‘cause I don’t know where I’m meant to go
But I’ll leave my footprints to follow home
And I’m not sure what I’m waiting for 
But one day I’ll make sense of it all

I’ve been walking for so long
My skin weighs heavy on my bones
But I will always carry on

‘cause I don’t know where I’m meant to go
But I’ll leave my footprints to follow home
And I’m not sure what I’m waiting for 
But one day I’ll make sense of it all
