Track Name: Sweet Tea
Sweet Tea

I’ve been searching around this dirty, old and beat up town, 
looking for something that could help me not just bring me down.
But theres nothing in sight, not a person thats right.

Ive been calmly hunting, waiting for my day to come.
The day i'd find someone to help me brighten up my sun,
but it seems so grey, maybe back in the day.

What if my love was born, 200 years ago?
I could never meet her, I would never know.
But it makes sense that she was born in a simpler time.
That's where my heart belongs. That's where our hearts align.

We were sitting, laughing, drinking cups of sweetened tea,
then i awoke it isn’t fair, guess it was all a dream,
but it felt so real, you don’t know how i feel.

Like there is no one in this world that can connect with me,
no one who’ll find the time and build with me a time machine.
well i'll go and pack, I think I’m going back to the past.

What if my love was born, 200 years ago?
I could never meet her, I would never know.
It makes sense that she was born in a simpler time.
Thats where my heart belongs. Thats where our hearts align.

What if my love was born, 200 years ago?
I would never meet her, I could never know.
It makes sense that she was born in a simpler time.
Thats where my heart belongs. Thats where our hearts align.
Track Name: Bear Hug
Bear Hug 

I’ve seen owls fly over tree tops where theres no leaves. 
I’ve known birds to fly south, but owls just stay and be free.
Here, in the cold, I’m staying here. Here, in the cold I’m here.

Ive seen bears lay in the field gathering for the winters bite.
Cubs bear hug their mothers legs, sleep for months and then
they hunt, for food, yes they hunt, for strength and warmth we’ll hunt.

There are creatures of the woodlands and I’m one of them,
waiting for our chance to grasp onto the wind.

Ive seen deer with inner peace, standing right before a light,
wondering what is next for them, hoping for the greatest life.
They live without fear. In my life i’ll live like a deer.

There are creatures of the woodlands and I’m one of them,
waiting for our chance to grasp onto the wind.
Track Name: Diamonds To Coal
Diamonds to Coal. 

My grandfather was weak.
He was frail like a tree, 400 years old but still standing.
As my grandmother watched her beloved unfold 
She held her head high kept him warm in the cold. 

By the fire they watched each others eyes glare,
With the love of a home and the strength of a bear.
But then one day it stopped, the looks with eyes shut, 
her husband was gone and she couldn't stand up.

Like all we suspected, she was crushed and dejected
from life and all well being and her heart was not whole.

When your heart is not whole you can't live like you're full, 
your eyes change from diamonds to coal. 
When you've fallen too far from all that you are,
you get stuck in a forest filled with tar. 

My brother was fine, he had a wise mind,
faced all of his challenges and finished in time.
But he was faulted like others, as all who had brothers,
had a rage in his heart when his plans fell under.

He took it out on his loved ones, his mother was the one 
who would take all the blame and attacks from her sons.
Although she didn't deserve it, worked so hard for her four kids,
I hope she knows she was loved more than a little bit. 

They both knew the truth, but it needed some proof.
Their bond needed strength and their strength needed roots.

When your heart is not whole you can't live like you're full, 
your eyes change from diamonds to coal. 
When you've fallen too far from all that you are,
you get stuck in a forest filled with tar.
Track Name: While Off Adventuring
While off adventuring.

I've climbed the Rockies, I've rustled through snow for you. 
I'm looking for you.
I’ve searched through the meadow and picked all the flowers for you. 
I'm looking for you. 

Well time doesn't seem on our side. 
Are you meant to be in my design?
I don't know if I'll ever find 
someone like you. 

Well maybe you've drove for miles, you've seen all the provinces.
Looking for me. 
And maybe you'll be in Calgary while I'm off in Halifax. 
Still looking for me. 

Well time doesn't seem on our side. 
Are you meant to be in my design?
I don't know if I'll ever find 
Someone like you. 

I'm ready to come home. 
I hope you're ready to stay. 
All I need is to find you, maybe someday. 

Well time doesn't seem on our side.
Are you meant to be in my design?
I don't know if I'll ever find. 
Someone like you.
