Track Name: Back to Morning
“Back to Morning”

In this town where I grew up
You can watch the sunrise
from the roof of any home
We were all children here
in a simpler time
and I don’t want to let it go

I remember when
our busiest streets
brought business downtown
But you’ll still get smiles on the highway
From the people you meet
if you can spare the time to slow down

TIME MOVES SLOWER IN THIS PLACE
BUT ENDS WITHOUT A WARNING
IF LIFE IS REALLY JUST A DAY
TAKE ME BACK TO MORNING

From the earliest daylight
when we open our eyes,
We’re princes of our youth
We have forever ahead
and a big world outside
to do whatever we want to do

The future is bright
if we make the most of every new sunrise
Track Name: Yesterday's Voices
“Yesterday’s Voices”

There’s a make-believe world
beneath the city skyline
Fake tans, traffic jams,
I’m leaving it all behind

I want to stand on the familiar ground
Where all my memories were grown
Rows of wheat against the setting sun,
That’s the skyline that I know

YESTERDAY'S VOICES
CALL OUT FOR TOMORROW:
"IS ANYBODY OUT THERE,
IS ANYONE LISTENING?"
SO MANY CHOICES
WHICH WAY WILL I GO?
BUT I'M READY TO ANSWER
AND CARRY THE WISDOM

“Will you take care of what we started?”
It’s a call I can’t ignore
It’s the whisper in the breeze
of those who came before

Here where the steps of children
fill the steps of their fathers
I’m gonna plant my own
Here where the young hearts
fill the hearts of their mothers
I’m gonna fill my own
