      What Matters

      Buy track Lyrics

      Verse:
      You, you’ve got all you need
      But can you see, what really matters in this world
      You’ve got your things,
      But all your things, can blind you to what’s got real worth
      Caught up, in the day to day
      One thing I’ll say, this life flies by with utmost haste
      Don’t reach the end
      To find only then, you’ve let your time here go to waste

      Chorus 1:
      Try to make your baby smile
      Don’t shy from that extra mile
      Rise up to a brand new day
      Find a kind word to say
      Verse:
      There’s, a simple truth
      A truth that you, up to now have always missed
      Each breathe you take
      Each passing day, you’ve got to count them as a gift
      There’s, no money back
      No guarantees, yeah what will be will surely be
      It’s up to you
      It’s up to me, to find some joy in all we see

      Chorus 2:
      Make time for the simple things
      Dr. Suess and a playground swing
      Join in on a pillow fight

      Hold'em when they need to cry

      Reprise Chorus 1:
      Try to make your baby smile
      Don’t shy from that extra mile
      Rise up to a brand new day
      Find a kind word to say

      Small Towns

      Buy track Lyrics

      Verse:
      It was 1980 back in my hometown, population 309.
      The folks were God-fearing farmers and backwoods sawyers;
      it was a simple place, a simple time.
      And the main street through, it was a two-lane road.
      Not a traffic light in sight. We had an old general store,
      a post office and a little café named Roy’s.

      Chorus:
      And now it’s been 30 years and the town’s grown up,
      and it’s not quite the same as it was.
      Life in the city went crazy and the chaos it seems
      left people lookin’ for new places to go.
      It’s hard to watch a small town grow.

      Verse:
      Well the family’s been planted down on this here farm
      for the last 97 years. It’s out on County Road 50, on 300 acres
      and Grandma, she lives next door.
      Now the main street’s filled up with busy commuters
      headin’ to and from the Interstate.
      The old mill closed down, it’s all fallin’ apart,
      that’s not the way it was in better days.

      Chorus:
      Now in the old ball field there are 200 homes,
      and across the street a Wal-Mart and bank.
      Our little sleepy old town, it’s called Suburbia now,
      I feel as if I’m losin’ part of my soul.
      It’s hard to watch a small town grow.

      Verse / Bridge:
      I remember Granddaddy sayin’ changin’ is hard,
      but there are times you gotta go with the flow.
      But I still look back to that old hometown
      that I knew not so long ago.

      Chorus:
      Now in the old ball field there are 200 homes,
      and across the street a Wal-Mart and bank.
      I'd like to turn back time and see that hometown of mine
      I feel as if I’m losin’ part of my soul.
      Cause it’s hard to watch a small town grow!

      Verse:
      Now you don’t know this yet
      But you’re beautiful as can be
      I hope someday you see
      What I already see

      You’re every single thing
      He could ever hope for
      And so I dread the day
      He shows up at my door

      Chorus:
      Don’t talk to that boy
      Cause I’m not ready yet
      To see my little girl
      Climb so high
      I know I can’t stop time
      But give me just a minute
      Don’t talk to that boy
      Cause I’m not, I’m just not ready yet

      Verse:
      He’ll promise you the sun
      When he can’t afford the moon
      Sweep you off your feet
      But honey it’s too soon

      Now I’m not saying no
      I’m saying please don’t go
      Just a little time
      Before you say goodbye

      Chorus:
      Don’t talk to that boy
      Cause I’m not ready yet
      To see my little girl
      Climb so high
      I know I can’t stop time
      But give me just a minute
      Oh don’t talk to that boy
      Cause I’m not, I’m just not ready yet

      Repeat Chorus:
      No don’t talk to that boy
      Cause I’m not ready yet
      To see my little girl
      Climb so high
      I know I can’t stop time
      But give me just a minute
      Don’t talk to that boy
      Oh I’m not, I’m just not ready yet

      Chasing Stars

      Buy track Lyrics

      Verse:
      Way out west there's a distant star
      And it shine so bright that it can't be far
      Cause when I reach my hand out to the light
      I can feel it.

      It throws its light for thr world to see
      But it's casting shadows from the feet of me
      Cause my own light pales in the company
      Of your spirit

      Chorus:
      And I know, I know
      You're way up there and I'm way down here
      But I'll keep running for you now
      And I'll go, I'll go
      But I've got to get up to where you are
      I know it's futile, but I'll keep
      Chasing Stars

      Verse:
      Where were you when the darkness came
      When I hung my head
      When I owned my shame
      Oh I reached out, though it was in vain
      Then I saw a flash and I understood
      It was I who crept away
      You were always right there
      Waiting for me to arise and make my claim

      Chorus:
      And I know, I know
      You're way up there and I'm way down here
      But I'll keep running for you now
      And I'll go, I'll go
      But I've got to get up to where you are
      I know it's futile, but I'll keep
      Chasing Stars

      And I know, I know
      You're way up there and I'm way down here
      But I'll keep running for you now
      And I'll go, I'll go
      But I've got to get up to where you are
      I know it's futile, but I'll keep
      Chasing Stars

      Forty Days

      Verse:
      Looking out at so much grey
      It’s hard to say these clouds will break
      You tell yourself, too much to take
      Too much of fear, too much heart ache

      Chorus:
      Been comin down for forty days
      It aint let up in forty days
      So weighed down for forty days
      But the sun will shine in forty days

      Verse:
      Looking for that olive bough
      To lift your hopes and let you know
      What came to pass aint here to stay
      It too will soon be on its way

      Chorus:
      Been comin down for forty days
      It aint let up in forty days
      So weighed down for forty days
      But the sun will shine in forty days

      Verse / Bridge:
      Looking for a brighter day
      Without the clouds, without the rain
      I tell you friend that you can win
      Just don’t give up, don’t give in

      Chorus:
      Been comin down for forty days
      It aint let up in forty days
      So weighed down for forty days
      But the sun will shine

      I been thinking bout
      How things ought to be

      There's Hope

      Buy track Lyrics

      Verse:
      It seems to me lately, almost constantly
      Someone asks me where I think we’re heading
      You can see it in their eyes, they’re trying to disguise
      The fear they can’t avoid what they’ve been dreading

      Lead In:
      I can’t say for sure where all this will end
      One thing I do know fate is not our only friend

      Chorus:
      There’s hope, hope in the eyes of a child
      There’s hope, hope for you and me
      There’s hope, hope of a new beginning
      If you’ll only lift your eyes and see

      Verse:
      I know you think your dreams saw fit to up and leave
      With nothing left you don’t know where you’re going
      But when you’ve lost it all there’s nowhere left to fall
      So brush away the dust and just start climbing

      Lead In:
      No I can’t say for sure where all this will end
      One thing I do know fate is not our only friend

      Chorus:
      There’s hope, hope in the eyes of a child
      There’s hope, hope for you and me
      There’s hope, hope of a new beginning
      If you’ll only lift your eyes and see

      Verse:
      Someday you’ll recall the times you had it all
      Along with when you felt like you were dying
      You’ll know then it’s not far to get from where you are
      To a place where you can see that life’s worth living

      Lead In :
      I can’t say for sure where all this will end
      One thing I do know fate is not our only friend

      Chorus:
      There’s hope, hope in the eyes of a child
      There’s hope, hope for you and me
      There’s hope, hope of a new beginning
      If you’ll only lift your eyes and see
