Hey Alison…

Here are the lyrics for the EP. If you need anything else please let me know.
Song For The Willing

Invited by the gale
The sea goes on forever
You should open your sails
Carry my song
We’ll talk of tomorrow
And it won’t be too long

Hope can be filling
And mountains can fall
If you are willing
And standing as tall

There’s no shadow hanging over me now
There’s a surge in this wandering tide
There’s a world outside
And it spins on its own

Call to the sun
An ode to the morning
There’s battles to be won
Our eyes full of sleep
The colors of the ocean
Seem so cool and so deep

There’s no sense in crying
For what has been spilt
Have no fear of dying
Because someday you will


Meet me out
Where summer ends
Oh, the leaves they were falling when I found you
You flew so low
When you came down
The sky never bothered to announce you

You spent ten thousand miles on the run
And the radio whined for each one

Rosie, I am not like you
Because a part of me can’t stand it in this place
Rosie, half of what I do
Is like a big long list of why I ought to stay
I’m not the one you want
But I’m trying anyway

All the time, when time runs out
I think only of the power that surrounds you
The day is done and the lights go out
You reach out into the emptiness around you

I Hope This Helps

You’ve been wounded in battle
You’ve been talking in rhyme
You found patience in waiting
For some call or for some sign

Someday you’ll rise
The ice will melt
You’ll peak and you’ll smile at the hand you are dealt
That day will come
And you’ll see for yourself
But for now,
I hope this helps

You were stranded and troubled
You were lost and confined
You were watching for someone
To turn back the hands of time
