Track Name: Atoms of Ashes
In 15,000 years
The atoms of my eyes
Will be wings of a bird
Maybe stars in the sky

In 15,000 years
There'll be no need to talk
or cry

And everything I think I know
everything I think I need
Will all have melted away

Everything that I hold close
Everything I hold so dear
Evaporates eventually

When the atoms of my jaw hinge have all flown away
And those that make my bones have all turned into clay

I will tell you I love you
You'll feel it like sunshine
You will know that I love you
I hold your heart in mine

When a star is red
It's not as hot and it is
getting older

When a star is blue
It's at the end of it's life
And it's burning up it's fuel, oh

Everything that I've been told
Is that my love will grow old
And jaded it will fade in time

But everything that I hold
All the wisdom in my soul
Says it's the only thing that's really mine

When the atoms of our ashes have all blown away
And those that make my bones have become the Milky Way

I will tell you I love you
You'll feel it like sunshine
You will know that I love you
I hold your heart in mine

My atoms will join your atoms and when our atoms combine (repeat)

There's no such thing
as mine
Track Name: My Will
I just wanted a record
That I lived, I loved and I laughed
I just wanted a testament
That I walked a broad, expansive path

I just wanted a book
With the chapters the years of my life
Reading I sang and I cried and spoke
Of wisdom, of strength, of delight

I just wanted a document
That told the story of who I was
Maybe a small monument
That marked the road down which I trudged

I just wanted a book
With the chapters the years of my life
Reading I sang and I cried and spoke
Of wisdom, of strength, of delight

I just wanted an archive
Of the pain and the promise I knew
A remembrance for posterity
To distinguish the wrong from the true

Or a rock by the river I carved with a chisel
The story of how life was to me
With a cold stone unturned neither painted nor burned
Only moss could cover the reed

I just wanted a time capsule
Where a hundred years hence
They'd open it up and see that with pluck
The beauty on which my life had been spent

Or a rock by the river I carved with a chisel
The story of how life was to me
With a cold stone unturned neither painted nor burned
Only moss could cover the reed
Track Name: Said It Low
I know I only met you yesterday
Lord knows we can't always stay the same
The only constant is the changing winds
And those I cannot blame
Yeah those I cannot blame

Curtains drawn, I'm the only one
The only one I'll ever be
No matter how many masks i wear
There's no getting rid of me
yeah there's no getting rid of me

Well I felt you in the darkness
Felt you calling out my name
I know I am not the only one
Who wishes it was still the same
Yeah I wish it was still the same

I said it low
I really wanted to know
I know I said it low
But I really wanted to know

I wanted yesterday to stay
Now it's just far enough away
Track Name: Heaven Bless My Soul
You can't feel the same way all the time
But I can teach your heart to change it's mind
And if we can trust in the words of a best friends
We can lie together knowing life is but a sin

Heaven bless my soul
Heaven bless my soul
Heaven bless my soul
Heaven bless my soul

Trust me I don't have a secret plan
But if I can convince you just to hold my hand
We can work other things out others days
And who knows maybe you'll decide to stay

Heaven bless my soul
Heaven bless my soul
Heaven bless my soul
Heaven bless my soul
