Track Name: Tiny Breath Of Music Life (feat. Mary L'abbate)
There's a voice inside my head
Telling me to call out, cry out
And sing to everyone I see
There's a voice inside my head
Telling me to tell the world
That this plan of mine unfurl

Now I hear little dreams
Let ideas touch the world
Tiny breath of music life
Come together, come alive
Track Name: Bread Crumb Trees
I'm at the age of my defeat
You are the princess and the seed
Distinguish my comforts and my needs
They are the ones that I must feed
Give me the wisdom of all to see
She is the life that I must bleed
Creaking through doors turn into deeds
Teaching me new ways of how to breathe

As bread crumb trees shout at the open sky
I refuse to make a toast until I die
Make haste, and don't even have to know why
She is the reason I choose to never get high
Sickening displacement of a comforting sigh
A rose bud blooms into the sky
Kiss on the cheek bursts open wings to flight
The ice melts inside her mind
Track Name: Forest Thoughts
Do you really feel left out?
Are you all alone in here?
Track Name: What's More, Once More (feat. Ally Lynn)
Take me back to that place
Where you use to run and play
And I'll join you, yeah I'll join you
Take me back to the gates
To your secret getaway
And I'll join you there, yeah I'll join you there

Take me back to the place
Where we met face to face
And I'll stay there, yeah I'll stay there
Take me back to the place
Where you felt all the disgrace
And I'll stay there
And I'll stay there once more

What more than life do you know?
Want more than life than life
Want more than life

Take me back to that place
Where you use to run and play
And I'll join you, yeah I'll join you
Take me back to the gates
To your secret getaway
And I'll join you there
Yeah I'll join you there once more
What more than this life do you know?
It's the only way you can grow
I promise there's more than you know

Take me back to that place
Where the look on your face
Was smiling everyday
We can get it back
I promise you that
Don't let it slip away
And don't you sit inside and wonder why
The world looks so bright outside
For all the others
Cause if you sit alone inside this room
The darkness will follow you
And in it you could be consumed
So, run for the light

More in life

[Chorus]

You're never alone
You're not alone...

(If I could search the world
The galaxies beyond the stars...)

You're never alone
You're not alone...

[Chorus]

Take me back to the place where you know...

You don't have to fight on your own
There's things that you can make it known
Not alone...
On your own...

Take me back to that place
Where you use to run and play
And I'll join you, yeah I'll join you
Take me back to the gates
To your secret getaway
And I'll join you there
Yeah I'll join you there once more

We can fix it...
Yeah, never alone...
