Be Okay 03:17
I see the shadow in your eye I know that there's been trouble in your life One time is all it takes to realize  That each night we lose a little a light…. You ask me how is my day I look at you & lie No matter what i say Everything has its time Rate of decay Everything must die My words upset you most the time So I whisper, I whisper them into the night My voice it trembles with doubt & disguise I say I miss her & you don’t reply You ask me how is my day I look at you & lie No matter what i say Everything has its time Rate of decay Everything must die I don’t care why Everything must die I don’t need to know why I see the sadness in your eye I know that there's been heartbreak in your life One time is all it takes to realize  That each night we lose a little light

My favourite part of school was when they asked us  what we wanted to be  when we grew up Just a small child's dream right before they crushed it figuring out that nothing is what it seems  when you grow up, if you grow up People policing, people policing me People policing children, policing individuality My favourite part of work was when took away my offices only key They locked me out I never messed around with a god gun complex Westerly egos have been sneaking up on me They figured me out People policing, people policing me People policing children, policing individuality My favourite part of life was when they asked us what we wanted...

The weight of the world is just enough to crush your hopes Every time i figure out what it takes to make a better home Human ignorance is for sale & its bought up by the so-called wise Then they turn around and sell it right back to us to make a better lie So go ahead and break me open If I’m living a life where I’m sitting around hoping… So go ahead and make me broken If the way I feel is left unspoken The weight of the world is just enough to crush your bones Every time i look around I see people who don’t even know Human ignorance is for sale & its bought up by the so-called wise Then they turn around and sell it right back to us to make a better lie So go ahead and break me open If I’m living a life where I’m sitting around hoping… So go ahead and make me broken If the way I feel is left unspoken The weight of the world is just enough to crush your hopes Every time i look around i see people that i wanna know

This won’t be the last time I stay up the Alaska highway All my loved ones at home they stay While all my life slips away Can i find a way to tap into The money hidden in the bank Although I’m lonesome let my love shine through And let your love shine through me too Because we live & die by these tools we use Until we meet the ones who get to choose To carry on, to carry on, to carry on So carry on... With every dime I spend i sell my soul Because i know where i have to go When you dwell on things you can’t control You give away everything you can you know If im destined down this lonely road I give it all away for you my sons Although I’m lonesome let my love shine through And let your love shine through me too Because we live & die by these tools we use Until we meet the ones who get to choose To carry on, to carry on, to carry on So carry on… Carry on… This won’t be the last time I stay up the Alaska highway...

Made 4 Me 04:04
So much has changed so much has went away It is best that it never comes back again I ran it right out of town Much of the same which only brought pain We got to know our common enemy Don’t let ourselves in the way Cuz our hearts are simple This may be our last day So i will leave no love left in me You are strong you’re unique Express your light when you speak You are love and i believe  That someone like you Was made for me… Made for me… I started to see the shadow in me I turned on the lights and things looked ugly It was time to clean house Everything was seen as helping or hindering My little boys need someone functioning So I cared for myself And it was so simple This may be our last day So i will leave no love left in me You are strong you’re unique Express your light when you speak You are love and i believe  That someone like you Was made for me… Made for me…

My Bad 03:42
Looks like we both messed up But will we forget If we had to wait to die perfect Then we’d never be dead So come on girl lets move slowly This ain’t over yet If we tried to look a little harder We might find the end Because you know I never meant to frighten somebody I never meant to frighten somebody like you… At first it was so simple But we had no clue As soon as life happened We didn’t know what to do That's why I choose to love you Whether I’m in the mood If we tried to look a little harder We might find some truth Because you know I never meant to frighten somebody I never meant to frighten somebody like you…

Circles 04:32
We can’t be lost in a wicked stare And merely drift through our lives And ponder it later Sometimes all i need focus And provide action from thought Make situations better I know you know all of this Im not saying I’m right I think its time we open our minds… I will stop if you stop first Thats how this sad world works A revolving circle So do we simply live our lives With views from only two sides How can one express a million? I get the feeling in my heart That this isn’t so hard And i should just try to enjoy myself If i don’t then i’ll be floating in a sea That isn’t very rough but isn’t very gorgeous I look forward to seeing you tomorrow Another reason to stay out of the medium Medium… Not another circle Not another circle, oh no… Any time you want i’ll be around Any time you need someone in town I will always walk along with you Just as long as I’m invited to

I gave you the ocean your first year I wish i was stronger  I wish i was here I got no soul, oh no I got no soul, oh no I got no soul What was i thinking it seems unclear What comes with the ocean Takes me far from here I gave you my soul your first year I better take it back before i disappear I got no soul, oh no I got no soul, oh no I got no soul

Another Day 02:32
My love is free  Although it may be Crazy to think about If you were me Then would you still see  All that i care about If i lost everything i own Would i be the one that i’ve come to know If i lost everything today Would i be strong enough to carry on  And live another day… The love in me is tough you can see If i can let it out What will i leave when i’m deceased For everything i care about If i lost everything i own Would i be the one that i want to know If i lost everything today Would i be strong enough to carry on  And live another day… Another Day

Kalei's Song 06:32
You left without us thinking What would it be like when you’re gone Now you’re missed with no understanding Why you had to be the one I wish i was where you are Then we could sit and talk and be together Instead I’m here writing this song for you I guess memories will do… Now i know you won’t be forgotten And you’re out there watching over me You’ll be the first i search for in heaven And our smiles are all they’ll see I wish i was where you are So we could sit and talk and be together Instead I’m here writing this song for you I guess memories will do… I hope these memories  I hope these memories work I hope they’re working… I hope they’re working...
