You’ve changed a thousand times.

You will a thousand more.

No matter who you are,

You’ll always have a home.

 

Blood boils in the pot of contempt.

It gets hard to forget all the things that were said.

It drives us all to the edge.

Break down, knees are bent.

Dark clouds over head.

 

But is it fair just to hold our tongues?

Were we not the ones laying down for our loves?

And is it fair just to say what we want,

When after the thought,

In confusion, we’re caught.

 

We are not the same.

Today’s not yesterday.

 

You’ve changed a thousand times.

You will a thousand more.

No matter who you are,

You’ll always have a home.

 

We’ve changed a thousand times.

We will a thousand more.

No matter who we are,

We’ll always have a home.

 

Home is where I’m with you.

Home is where I’m with you.

Home is where I’m with you.

Home is where I’m with you.

 

Oh.

 

The sweet always comes with the bad.

It’s poured in a glass.

You see what we have.

It may not be what we planned,

But there’s so much more,

And the ocean is vast.

 

So, I don’t care what the others say.

The truth is that all of our debt has been paid.

And I don’t care for the riches of fame,

‘Cause I go home to you at the end of the day.

 

Do you feel the same?

Let go of the shame.

 

You’ve changed a thousand times.

You will a thousand more.

No matter who you are,

You’ll always have a home.

 

We’ve changed a thousand times.

We will a thousand more.

No matter who we are,

We’ll always have a home.

 

Home is where I’m with you.

Home is where I’m with you.

Home is where I’m with you.

Home is where I’m with you.

 

You’ve changed a thousand times.

You will a thousand more.

No matter who you are,

You’ll always have a home.

 

We’ve changed a thousand times.

We will a thousand more.

No matter who we are,

We’ll always have a home.

 


 

2) Recluse

So long.

So long.

Yeah.

 

Turned my back on the things I knew.

Fell in love and, oh, it got me confused.

I was young, I was filled with fire.

The smoke was just getting higher.

 

Fell hard, I was hurt and bruised.

It was at this time that I became recluse.

The cards were dealt and I played.

Broke the rules, so I couldn’t stay.

 

Chasing the wind,

Hoping you’ll win,

But you learn that it burns.

And it won’t stay for no one. (And it won’t stay for no one.)

 

Where did all the people go?

All the ones that I had known?

You move too fast and you’re gone.

 

I’ve been away for so long,

I don’t know where I belong.

I’ve been away for so long,

I don’t know where I belong.

I don’t know where I belong.

 

Where I belong.

Don’t know where I belong.

 

I woke up and I caught the time.

So many years gone by and I can’t rewind.

Do I come to mind the way you do in mine? (The way you do in mine.)

 

Lost track of what I felt.

I moved east from west and I thought I’d find it.

Though I left, the memories stayed.

Even if the details fade.

 

Chasing the wind,

Hoping you’ll win,

But you learn that it burns.

And it won’t stay for no one. (And it won’t stay for no one.)

 

Where did all the people go?

All the ones that I had known?

You move too fast and you’re gone.

 

I’ve been away for so long,

I don’t know where I belong.

I’ve been away for so long,

I don’t know where I belong.

I don’t know where I belong.

 

Where I belong.

Don’t know where I belong.

 

I’ve been away for so long,

I don’t know where I belong.

 

Where I belong.

 

I’ve been away for so long,

I don’t know where I belong.

 

Where I belong, yeah, yeah.

 

Where I belong.

Where I belong.

Where I belong.

Where I belong.

Where I belong.

Where I belong.

Where I belong.

Where I belong.


 

3) I Know I Should Call ft. Sam Ock

Things got heated,

I know you needed space.

Couldn't even get a word in.

You didn't even look me in my face.

 

Why even try, when all you do is deny,

We're on a team and love that means we're on each other's side.

 

Why do you get so mean?

What do you want from me?

Why isn't this easy?

Was it really my fault?

What did you mean by that?

Why did I get so mad?

What is it that we have?

I can't let it go yet.

 

I know I should call, before I regret it all.

I know I should call, before I regret it all.

I know that I should, I should, I should, I should.

I know that I should.

I know that I should call, before I regret it all.

La, la, la, la, la....

I know that I should, I should, I should, I should.

I know that I should.

I know that I should call, before I regret it all.

 

Holding grudges don't take much, it's easy. (Yeah)

Try forgiveness,

No excuses,

Oh, my heart just skipped a beat.

It's hard to try,

In case again you deny,

Everything that I'm feeling,

Oh, I think I'm gonna cry.

 

Why do you get so mean?

What do you want from me?

Why isn't this easy?

Was it really my fault?

What did you mean by that?

Why did I get so mad?

What is it that we have?

I can't let it go yet.

 

I know I should call, before I regret it all.

I know I should call, before I regret it all.

I know that I should, I should, I should, I should.

I know that I should.

I know that I should call, before I regret it all.

La, la, la, la, la....

I know that I should, I should, I should, I should.

I know that I should.

I know that I should call, before I regret it all.

I know that I should call, Before I regret it all.

I know I should call,

Before I regret it all.

I know that I should, I should, I should, I should.

I know that I should. I know that I should call, before I regret it all.


 

4) Broke ft. Joules

Ain’t it funny?

They tell me that I gotta find myself a honey,

With a lot of money.

But even if they had it, oh.

No, it don’t mean no…

 

I’m talkin’ patience,

Even when I’m complainin’.

Someone good at explainin’,

What it is they’re feeling.

I’m sick of playin’,

All of the games and,

You seem like the time to understand what I like, boo.

Understand that I like you.

Understand that I’m down to stay with you.

 

When you came in my life,

I knew you were the one.

You had integrity,

I wasn’t just for fun.

Made sure that I was yours.

Got married in 4 months.

We still out here,

Now it’s 4 years.

I’m sayin’

 

We were broke.

Well.

We’re still broke but never broken.

Flashy things can get distracting,

From what’s happening.

Without em’, we’re still happy.

It doesn’t even matter that we’re broke.

Well.

We’re still broke but never broken.

Flashy things can get distracting,

From what’s happening.

Without em’, we’re still happy.

It doesn’t even matter that we’re broke.

 

 

Broke.

I was minimum wage.

Livin’ off little, dismissin’ my age.

Trapped in a phase,

Relivin’ my past,

Slow passin’ away.

Drama.

I was cast in a play,

And finding success was path’s in a maze.

Girls would laugh in my face,

Passin’ the shade with sass in her braids.

But still in a passionate place,

Dreamin’ of chattin’ and rappin’ for Sway.

Every single day the dream replaced,

So, I started to pray.

Lord, show me the way so all of this pain won’t come to my grave.

(Please, God.)

And in the most random way,

We started to chat on January 8th.

 

Night turned to day,

And we stayed awake,

And never took a break.

Didn’t play it safe,

We traded secrets,

Our great escape.

Out of this world,

I shouted on top of the mountains for her.

No diamonds and pearls,

But I cashed in my blessings I counted for this girl.

 

Like quarters flipped in the fountain of youth.

I wished to live forever.

Must’ve came true.

Through our memories,

Our blood, sweat, and tears,

And all our paid dues.

It ain’t a perfect picture,

And photoshop ain’t in our nature.

But we still out here.

And it’s 4 years, I’m sayin’.

 

We were broke.

Well.

We’re still broke but never broken.

Flashy things can get distracting,

From what’s happening.

Without em’, we’re still happy.

It doesn’t even matter that we’re broke.

Well.

We’re still broke but never broken.

Flashy things can get distracting,

From what’s happening.

Without em’, we’re still happy.

It doesn’t even matter that we’re broke.

 


 

5) If Only

Jennifer Chung (BMI) - Music & Lyrics

Sam Ock (ASCAP) - Music

When I was young,

I was told that I wasn’t enough.

Why even bother?
You won’t get much farther,

Give up.

 

They want it way more than you.

They would die trying, would you?

What are you willing to do?

Well, I just wanna be free.

Wanna be who I’m meant to be.

But then the voices keep telling me…

 

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

 

If only.

If only.

If only you…

 

Now that I’m grown,

I’ve learned that there isn’t one way.

There is no turning away from your fate.

You are safe.

I’ll take my time – it’s a gift.

Make sure there’s nothing I missed.

This is the one life I’ll live.

I know that I can be free,

And be who I’m meant to be.

All while the voices are telling me…

 

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

 

Slimmer.

Prettier.

Thinner.

Taller.

Smarter.

Wiser.

Blah-lah-lah-lah

 

Slimmer.

Prettier.

Thinner.

Taller.

Smarter.

Wiser.

Blah-lah-lah-lah

 

They’ve got so much to say,

And yet so little to show.

No, I don’t mean accolades.

I mean the depths of your soul.

I’m doing what I do best.

I mean that I’m doing me.

That’s what I mean when I say,

I just wanna be free.

 

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

If only you were…

 


 

6) Take It One Day At A Time

Jennifer Chung (BMI) - Music & Lyrics

I know it hurts.

Don’t wanna get out of bed.

Much rather lay there instead.

Instead, you face what you fear –

The thought that no one is near.

 

It hurts.

You’re living but don’t feel alive.

No motivation or drive,

As you search for answers to why,

Oh, why.

 

Why me?

Won’t somebody please,

Take my burdens away.

I can’t do this today.

 

You’ve got to hold on.

Hold onto what you believe in.

Weather through every season.

Take it one day at a time.

You’ve got to hold on.

Don’t put aside what you’re feeling.

There is a process of healing.

You will be more than alright.

Take it one day at a time.

 

So overwhelming.

Everyone’s counting on you.

Unaware you need help too.

But you don’t say a word,

Too much work to be done.

 

No fun.

Go through the motions eyes closed.

‘Cause you’re always doing the most.

But the more that you do,

The more you seem to lose.

 

Why me?

Won’t somebody please,

Take my burdens away.

I can’t do this today.

 

You’ve got to hold on.

Hold onto what you believe in.

Weather through every season.

Take it one day at a time.

You’ve got to hold on.

Don’t put aside what you’re feeling.

There is a process of healing.

You will be more than alright.

Take it one day at a –

 

Time after time,

I have tried hard to fight against all my desires.

I would swallow my pride,

But I know I am called to live free and fulfilled.

No, it will not be easy,

But I will be still.

 

I will be still.

I will be still and know.

 

You’ve got to hold on.

Don’t put aside what you’re feeling.

There is a process of healing.

You will be more than alright.

Take it one day at a time.

 


7) After All (These Years)

Guard your heart,

‘Cause people want to take it for keeps.

Stop it before it starts.

It’s harder to get out than it seems.

 

I’ve seen with my own eyes,

What it can do to someone,

Who loves so freely, no condition.

Whatever it takes, the world takes.

Again and again,

Your heart hardens.

But with the right encounter,

The rules bend.

Your soul is filled in again.

 

People come and go,

So, we’re told.

But, darling you’ve stayed.

No matter the distance,

No matter how far,

You never feel far away.

 

I can’t believe you’re here,

After all these years.

I can’t believe you’re here,

After all these years.

 

Out of hurt,

And not from you,

I have said some terrible things.

You forgave,

And showed me grace.

A gift that I had never received.

 

And so, I felt inside,

What it can do to someone.

When loved so freely, no condition.

 

Whatever it takes, I’ve taken.

Again and again,

My heart softened.

‘Cause with the right encounter,

The rules bend.

Your soul is filled in again.

 

People come and go,

So, we’re told.

But, darling you’ve stayed.

No matter the distance,

No matter how far,

You never feel far away.

 

(You don’t feel far away.)

 

I can’t believe you’re here,

After all these years.

I can’t believe you’re here,

After all these years.

 

I can’t believe you’re here,

After all these years.

(Darling, I cannot believe that you’re here.)

I can’t believe you’re here,

After all these years.

 

 

This is my promise,

I will do better.

‘Cause you have shown me,

When we’re together,

There are no limits.

You are my shelter.

And I will love you,

Now and forever.

 

I can’t believe you’re here,

After all these years.

I can’t believe you’re here,

After all these years.

 

(I can’t, I can’t believe it… I just cannot believe it.)

 

I can’t believe you’re here,

After all these years.

I can’t believe you’re here,

After all these years.

(Now, I know. Now, I know. Now, I know – oh, oh.)
