Track Name: supermoon and the mountaintop
It's been eighteen years of waiting
For the moon to get this bright
It’s never looked so big
It’s never looked so white
And we watch it kiss the mountaintop
And illuminate the night

And the sweetness of the moment passes through
It washes over me, like its washing over you
And God himself is doing something new
He’s washing over me, like he’s washing over you
In the sweetness of a moment passing through

The air is so much colder
When you climb into the clouds
And the whisper of creation
Has never been so loud
And standing on the mountaintop
Our feet touch holy ground

And the sweetness of the moment passes through
It washes over me like its washing over you
And God himself is doing something new
He’s washing over me, like he’s washing over you
In the sweetness of a moment passing through
We’re taking in a breath of something true
Track Name: beginners again
In our corner apartment
We build webs in the wind
And forgot where we started
Until we got there again

As the streets grew familiar
It came time to move on
So we kept all the lyrics
But changed up the song

We’re beginners again
Conducting an amateur band
Writing our hopes in the sand
Because we're bound to begin again

In my dreams I still see it
The way everything was
We were building a world that was meant
To be packed up

So don't be afraid
Of saying goodbye
Everything changes my darling
We're caught in time
Track Name: a song we both know
If I sing for you tonight
Humming at your bedside
I promise when I go
I’ll learn a song we both know

The years they stand between
Common ground for you and me
But a friendship here can grow
From the roots of a song we both know

We’ll sing, we’ll sing
And healing comes that only melody can bring

There’s a way for us to dance over all our faults
As we sing to Let It Be or The Tennessee Waltz
And you can fall asleep while I play slow
The tune of a song we both know

And time has taken you
To the edge of what you once knew
The fire in your eyes
Has all but flickered out and died
But I can see it on your face
You’re in some other time and place
Where you’re free from all your cares
This old song can take you there
Track Name: where the blame lies
You give me grace, you give me hell
And what’s coming next I can never tell
And your requests all sound like taunts
When what I have is not what you want

So I’m asking questions
What went wrong here?
Do we know?
So I’m asking questions
Where’s the blame lie?
Let it show

We disagree on how to fight
You swing left and I swing right
And I keep hoping that we’re done
Each time an argument is won

So I’m not sorry that I left
I Got tired of mixing love and theft
And time will reap what grace has sown
But whose to blame we’ll never know
