Track Name: Cancer
I watched it drip into your port
a deadly medicine of sorts
I watched your hair fall out, one by one
Oh cancer what have you done?

Don’t you dare say to me that you’re dying
I can’t walk this earth
while you’re in the dirt
Don’t you dare say to me that you’re going
Never meant to be this way
take me back to better days
Oh cancer what have you done?

You looked me square in the face
said I’m done with this place
He cut your face out of every one
Oh life what have you done


You never did shout or shake your fists
said, “I was born to die like this”
Wholly broken, in pieces whole
Oh my my, this was beautiful
Oh my my, this has been beautiful
Oh my my, this was beautiful 
Oh my my, this was beautiful 

Oh cancer what have you done?
Track Name: Widower
Been a righteous gentleman
A man of many skins
Tried to list them all
But I don’t know where to begin
Beggar, thief, a king
Shepherd with a sling
You can keep your sword and shield
I don’t need anything

I built a house my dear
So I could keep you near
A voice from above
Was singin’, “have no fear”
You were my consequence
In this holy turn of events
No need to overthink it
‘Cause love makes no sense

Time seems to tell me,
“There’s nothing left for you,
so, slow down”
Love used to be a friend
But I don’t see much of him anymore

We made a love so strong
You made this coward belong
Beauty and innocence
Tell me what went wrong
A sickness I couldn’t heal
A sorrow that couldn’t be real
Tell me there’s a reason for this
Tell me what’s left to feel

I thought that I’d done right
But he still came in the night
Tell me what must be done
To forever hold you tight


I had my money saved
We picked our wedding day
The Lord sure does give
And He sure does take away
Track Name: It Tapped on the Leaves
I see your face in the water, the water and the trees
When did we once call you daughter, sister of peace?
And I stand here, and I shiver, I shiver in the cold
And I open my eyes, to the picture that I used to know

Children we walk to the flowers, covered in rose
I'm closing my hands like a coward, to carry this ghost
And I stand here, and I shiver, I shiver in the cold
And I open my eyes to the picture, the picture you hold

Joseph your brother is smiling, holding your hand
Raised him like a mother, you listened, to understand
And you stand there, and you shiver, shiver in the cold
He was so scared, but you covered him, precious as gold
Precious as gold

I heard when it tapped on the leaves, and covered our home
This rain of our fears poured down, and overflowed
And we stood there, and we shivered, shivered in the cold
And with all of my books and my figures, I should have known
I should have known

I'm searching the water and trees for the sound of your voice
Stood in your grass and I listened, but now it's just noise
God, I stand here and I shiver, I shiver in the cold
And I open my eyes to the sister that I used to know
Track Name: Childhood
We were only seventeen, love was on our team
We hit college and, seems like all our plans were faulty
Life hits like a rock, something you cannot stop
What happened to family?
Think back to childhood, all the things we understood
Seem make believe

Make me believe
Like a child, like a child
Make me believe
Like a child, like a child

I’m done with fickle things, and petty arguing
I wanna know the meaning
Of life and death and love, and all I’m thinking of
I need some clarity
Though I don’t understand, I’d surely give my hand to you
When you’re losing life, losing the reason why you believe

You wrote me a letter today, all the things you wanted to say
Spilling out like gasoline
But I’m not one to ignite, no need to cower or fight
Flashback to the days of our youth,
There was a passion in my heart and I gave it to you

I loved you like that
I loved you like that
