Track Name: Cross Upon A Cord
CROSS UPON A CORD
Written by Victoria Woodworth © Feed Gonzo Music (BMI)

I knew a man who said he loved me, now I understand he never will
And so I open up my eyes and crawl down to the water and get my fill

And every road under my feet gives me a shout
I don’t know how or why we had to have a falling out
I’m covered up with all your promises and rust
Later on, I’m gonna watch ‘em buckle into dust

I got the cross upon a cord from a woman selling silver down a’ ways
And I keep it right across my heart ‘cause I need a reminder every day

God is a man of few words when it comes to me
I can feel him moving high above the trees
He lays me down and listens to me cry
Later on, he lays a hand across my eyes

I am not feeling very holy, afraid I do not know a single saint
I feel a little more like someone who’s always seeing faces in the paint

Now that you know about these things do what you must
I cannot promise I’ll be worthy of your trust
There’s just a couple of things I know now to be true
And neither one of them has anything to do with you

I got the cross upon a cord
From a good friend making silver down a’ ways
And I keep it right across my heart ‘cause I need a reminder everyday
Track Name: Dark Water
DARK WATER
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

You like your pain with a double shot. I prefer mine dry.
I want the truth plain spoken, but you won’t look me in the eye.
I’ll call you bluff, maybe you’ll call mine.
In the end it won’t matter who’s right.

I put both hands out to reach you
And you’ve got one foot out the door.
You’re counting on a new day dawning on what cannot be ignored.
I’m tired of breaking your bad news; sick of singing these delta blues.

Dark water washing over me; dark water, down to the sea.

Are we too proud to see we need each other
To reach a higher ground?
Too distracted to feel the sting of a hard rain coming down?
But when the storm is closing in will you heed the warning then?

Dark water washing over me; dark water, down to the sea.

You could turn your back or you could turn around.
I know together we can turn this around;
Keep from going down without a sound into…

Dark water washing over me; dark water, down to the sea.
Dark water washing over me… dark water, down to the sea.
I can feel the water rising, over me.
Can’t you feel the water rising? Dark water…
Dark water, washing over me; dark water…
Track Name: The Ghost of Love
THE GHOST OF LOVE
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

I don’t know what to say to you anymore
I won’t know what to feel if you walk through that door
You turn to gray what was black and white
Blue sky tumbling down, truth feels like a lie

Like a thief, the ghost of love steals away any peace
I know it’s just the ghost of love coming over me

Sometimes I feel you hovering near
Sometimes I wonder if you were ever really here
My heart is playing tricks on me, lost in the past
It isn’t the first time, it won’t be the last

Like a thief, the ghost of love steals away any peace
I know it’s just the ghost of love coming over me

Too many times I let you in
Too many times I’ve had to start all over again
You promise tomorrow with the lies of yesterday
But I’ve picked up the pieces, sealed all the cracks
So you can be on your way

Like a thief, the ghost of love steals away any peace
I know it’s just the ghost of love coming over me
I know it’s just the ghost of love coming over me
Track Name: This Time
THIS TIME
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

I am impatient; I want to know what game is played
Spill all your secrets before another move is made
There is no second chance when you’re betting your last dime
But I’m not afraid to make a mistake this time

When I fall, I will enjoy the ride
There’s no other way to know what’s on the other side
I’ve been wrong before, but waiting never made it come out right
So, I’m not afraid to make a mistake this time

You’ve been hurt before, I see the caution in your eyes
There are no guarantees for anything in this life
Take that leap of faith before you fall further behind
Don’t be afraid to make a mistake this time

And when you fall, just enjoy the ride
There’s no other way to know what’s on the other side
You’ve been wrong before, but waiting never made it come out right
So, don’t be afraid to make a mistake…

This time there is no room for doubt, I won’t be selling myself out
I’ll reach for what I know is true, that I deserve someone like you

And when I fall, I will enjoy the ride
There’s no other way to know what’s on the other side
I’ve been wrong before, but waiting never made it come out right
So, I’m not afraid to make a mistake this time

When I fall, I will enjoy the ride
There’s no other way to know what’s on the other side
I’ve been wrong before, but waiting never made it come out right
So, I’m not afraid to make a mistake this time
I’m not afraid to make a mistake this time
Don’t be afraid to make a mistake this time
Track Name: Rediscover Me
REDISCOVER ME
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

I went to the place we used to meet
In spring when love was new
It was overgrown and faded in the autumn light
Reclaimed by a time before you

The heart has its seasons you learn
Love will blossom and wither in its turn

Stars cross and realign, from loss to recovery
It’s only a matter of time before you rediscover me

Under the winter’s new moon darkness
Frozen in my grief
Until the thaw, the reconnection
Sweet river of release

There’s an echo on the wind
And so from ashes we begin

Stars cross and realign, from loss to recovery
It’s only a matter of time, before you rediscover me

Stars cross and realign, from loss to recovery
It’s only a matter of time, before you rediscover me
Before you rediscover me
Track Name: Phoenix (Sleep Without Dreams)
PHOENIX (SLEEP WITHOUT DREAMS)
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

She was a wide-eyed believer, the one who took you to heart
Her faith was infectious, enough to convince even you,
At least at the start
But love is a savage emotion, and you were never so brave
When the shadows grew tall and you feared you might fall,
You put that girl in her grave

Oh, to sleep without dreams when the wind is rising
Under wings of flame
Oh, to rest in the silence ‘til the rising sun whispers my name
Out of the ashes I came

The bottom’s as dark as December and cold as the wages of sin
But hard as I tried, I just couldn’t find regret that my heart took you in
For I willingly drank of that darkness, so you would not bear it alone
Thinking the tangled could never be torn
I bled out your fear with my own

Oh, to sleep without dreams when the wind is rising
Under wings of flame
Oh, to rest in the silence ‘til the rising sun whispers my name
Out of the ashes I came

You stepped away from the edge
And turned as the night stole my voice
You missed the lesson, the moment of redemption
When you breathe because it isn’t a choice
You climb without looking when your devil’s behind you
You run ‘til you’ve run out of road
And in the end you find that there isn’t one
I just thought you should know

Oh, to sleep without dreams when the wind is rising
Under wings of flame
Oh, to rest in the silence ‘til the rising sun whispers my name
Out of the ashes I came

Oh, to sleep without dreams when the wind is rising
Under wings of flame
Oh, to rest in the silence ‘til the rising sun whispers my name
Out of the ashes I came
Track Name: Hard Rain
HARD RAIN
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

I used to know where the line was, how far I’d go.
I thought that the head could rule the heart. What did I know?
I loved with the fierce abandon of a river in flood,
And woke to the world imagined, swallowed by ashes and mud.

Where is the light of a new day when hope’s gone to ground?
And who’s to blame for the hard rain when it’s coming down?

It shouldn’t surprise me to find you here, tried and untrue.
It wouldn’t surprise me to find myself, black and blue.
Now pretty words won’t return you when the trust has fled,
And you can’t take back all the cruelest cuts better left unsaid.

Where is the light of a new day when hope’s gone to ground?
And who’s to blame for the hard rain when it’s coming down?

Who can say they’ve kept every promise they’ve made,
But I’ve always been true to the ones I made you.

Now, who are you to judge me when you’ve never traveled this road?
It wouldn’t be such a struggle with love to lighten the load.
But love is never enough, you tell me every day,
And now you’ve got the last word and you’ve got nothing left to say.

Where is the light of a new day when hope’s gone to ground?
And who’s to blame for the hard rain when it’s coming down?

Where is the light of a new day when hope’s gone to ground?
And who’s to blame for the hard rain when it’s coming down?
When it’s coming down…
It’s coming down.
Track Name: Elemental
ELEMENTAL
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

There is a wave on the ocean
The pulse of the world in its sway
Hidden inside the tears that I’ve cried
Washing my grief away

A fire blooms in the forest
Its passion consuming the night
Its dance in my veins will not be contained
For I am alive with its light

Sing me to sleep voices of midnight
Clothe me in rays of the sun
In my heart you have left the most obvious secret
All that we are is but one

Over desert land curls the wind
From a gentle caress to a howl
Shaping the earth into death and rebirth
Lending me breath even now

Sing me to sleep voices of midnight
Clothe me in rays of the sun
In my heart you have left the most obvious secret
All that we are is but one

A great mountain stands in silence
Strength and wisdom beyond all worth
On her belly I lie, kissing the sky
For I am a child of the earth

Sing me to sleep voices of midnight
Clothe me in rays of the sun
In my heart you have left the most obvious secret
All that we are is but one

Sing me to sleep voices of midnight
Clothe me in rays of the sun
In my heart you have left the most obvious secret
All that we are is but one
All that we are is but one
Oh, all that we are is one
Track Name: Must Be Love
MUST BE LOVE
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

Is this what it feels like to leave this place?
Floating and falling on an endless wave of grace
Drifting and dreaming, I’m walking on air
Coming or going, I don’t really care

Must be love that turns these moments to hours and hours to days
Only love can fill my heart with this wonder just to hear you say
It must be love

Your voice stills the doubts that echo in my mind
Long past hope or past caring, now I’ve faith redefined
In a look you’ve made simple the struggle I’ve known
In a breath, in a whisper, in your eyes I am home

Must be love that turns these moments to hours and hours to days
Only love can fill my heart with this wonder just to hear you say
It must be love

If you’ve come for forever or just for tonight,
I could live on this memory the rest of my life

Must be love that turns these moments to hours and hours to days
Only love can fill my heart with this wonder just to hear you say . . .

Must be love that turns these moments to hours and hours to days
Only love can fill my heart with this wonder just to hear you say
It must be love … must be love
Track Name: The Dark Before The Dawn
DARK BEFORE THE DAWN
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

Too hot to sleep, the moon is nearly full
The cool light flooding through the window’s
The only comfort in this room
I lie awake and wonder how we ever got this far
From a love that could move mountains
To this empty valley where we are

You’re sleeping soundly within inches of my arms
But you’re far beyond my reach tonight
And no sign where your love has gone
I only wanted to love you the best way I knew how
But my best just isn’t good enough
For the broken man beside me now

Hope lies deep, won’t you raise your eyes to me, I’ll be here…
Where angels sleep, none will keep my company
Here in the dark before the dawn

Was the flame too bright to burn on endlessly?
Too familiar in this love that fades now from your memory
I want to believe there’s a way to make things right
There’s an answer for us waiting
Somewhere in the morning light

Hope lies deep, won’t you raise your eyes to me, I’ll be here…
Where angels sleep, none will keep my company
Here in the dark before the dawn

No words could wound so deeply as the weight of this hush
What a fool I was to believe I could love enough for both of us

Hope lies deep, won’t you raise your eyes to me, I’ll be here…
Where angels sleep, none will keep my company
Here in the dark before the dawn

Hope lies deep, won’t you raise your eyes to me, I’ll be here…
Where angels sleep, none will keep my company
Here in the dark before the dawn
Here in the dark before the dawn
Track Name: Your Angel
YOUR ANGEL
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

Hello, can you see me here? A little left of center and slightly low
Today, at this moment, I’m here if you can see me before I go

Walking blind most of the time is no way to live
With faith and a little attention you can see all the world has to give

What you’re looking for - The answer could be here
You asked, but are you receiving the answer to your prayer?

I could be your angel if you’d only realize
I may not be what you ordered, but a miracle in disguise
Are you open to possibility?
Can you embrace serendipity?
‘Cause I could be your angel if you’d open up your eyes

Is it a kind word you need? A clue to follow, an idea to spark?
Every moment there’s a twist of fate, a hand to hold for every open heart

Nothing’s really as it seems unless you believe it so
Listen up, opportunity’s knocking. Won’t you open up the door?

What you’re looking for - The answer could be here
You asked, but are you receiving the answer to your prayer?

I could be your angel if you’d only realize
I may not be what you ordered, but a miracle in disguise
Are you open to possibility?
Can you embrace serendipity?
‘Cause I could be your angel if you’d open up your eyes

Believe in magic - Know it to be true
And don’t forget another’s angel just might be you

I could be your angel if you’d only realize
I may not be what you ordered, but a miracle in disguise
Are you open to possibility?
Can you embrace serendipity?
‘Cause I could be your angel if you’d open up your…
I could be your angel if you’d open up your eyes
I could be your angel…
Track Name: All That Remains
ALL THAT REMAINS
Written by Trinity Demask © Excaligurl Music (BMI)

A shadow crossed my heart tonight
When hope spread its wings to fly
Nothing left to do but wonder why
And remember

We are born from ageless light
To a world of toil and strife
The purpose of this blessed life
To remember

When darkness falls away
At the dawning of the day
All that remains is love

We all walk a path we chose
We must trust what spirit knows
And in the end, at the close
We’ll remember

I hold for you a sacred space
It is filled with peace and grace
And held within this sweet embrace
You’ll remember

When darkness falls away
At the dawning of the day
All that remains is love
