Track Name: Prove It To Me
I still remember
Like it was yesterday
When you surrendered
And turned away
Though detrimental
The way you wounded me
Was accidental
To some degree
But was it the last time
Or just the first time

You say you’re sorry
So prove it to me, prove it to me
Apologetic can’t stand on its own
I’ve heard your story
So give me one good reason to believe
You’re truly sorry
Prove it to me, prove it to me

My own attrition
Is always close at hand
Crimes of omission
I understand
Though good intentions
Are always nice to get
Let down prevention
Is better yet

You say you’re sorry
So prove it to me, prove it to me
Apologetic can’t stand on its own
I’ve heard your story
So give me one good reason to believe
You’re truly sorry
Prove it to me, prove it to me

One time…it’s no big deal
Two times…still quick to heal
Three times…great, not again
Four times…when will it end
Five times…patience is gone
Six times, and on and on
I begin to wonder if you’re sorry at all

You say you’re sorry
So prove it to me, prove it to me
Apologetic can’t stand on its own
I’ve heard your story
So give me one good reason to believe
You’re truly sorry
Prove it to me, prove it to me

You say you’re sorry
So prove it to me, prove it to me
Apologetic can’t stand on its own
I’ve heard your story
So give me one good reason to believe
You’re truly sorry
Prove it to me, prove it to me
Prove it to me
Track Name: Confusion
All my life I have thought I was sure of the things I believed
Looking back on ‘em now I am wondering if I was deceived
In childhood the answers came easy
But now that I’m here the truth is harder to see

There are so many things to believe I never knew existed
You can mix ‘em and match ‘em and then it gets even more twisted
So how can I ever decide
Which ones are the truths in the midst of the lies

Why does it seem like the world is so full of confusion
Just when I think I find truth I find it’s an illusion
When I try to discern the wrong from right
But there’s more gray than black or white
Gotta find a way I can shine the light on this world of confusion

There are questions unanswered I know I need to make some sense of
But my predispositions I first gotta take and dispense of
Do I think I’ve found the only way
And everyone else has simply gone astray

Why does it seem like the world is so full of confusion
Just when I think I find truth I find it’s an illusion
When I try to discern the wrong from right
But there’s more gray than black or white
Gotta find a way I can shine the light on this world of confusion

Then I stop and I look and I see that I’m missing the goal
The confusion is there so that I don’t get stuck in a hole
I’m caught up in minor discrepancies
The answer’s not finding but searching what I believe

Why does it seem like the world is so full of confusion
Just when I think I find truth I find it’s an illusion
When I try to discern the wrong from right
But there’s more gray than black or white
Gotta find a way I can shine the light on this world of confusion

When I try to discern the wrong from right
But there’s more gray than black or white
Gotta find a way I can shine the light on this world of confusion

Even when everything boggles my mind
And no matter how hard that I try I can’t find
Any way to decipher the truth from illusion
As long as I’m searching I’ve beaten this world of confusion
Track Name: Like Me
This is my attempt
To make you like me
Is it working?
This is my attempt
To make you like me
Is it working?

If I write a clever line for you
That no one's ever heard
Get you lost inside my melody
To hang on every word
Would you like me?

This is my attempt
To get your attention
Is it working?
This is my attempt
To get your attention
Is it working?

If I sing a brand new song for you
And sculpt a perfect phrase
That can steal you for a moment’s time
But seems to last for days
Would you like me?

But I don’t waste my time on things
That I might never change
Or measure my identity
In what you think of me
I don’t really care
If all my efforts are in vain
‘Cause clearly I’m indifferent
But one question still remains
Do you like me?

This is my attempt
To try to impress you
Is it working?

If I catch you in the rhythm of
The notes I sing and play
Or I open up my life to you
And get carried away
Would you like me?

But I don’t waste my time on things
That I might never change
Or measure my identity
In what you think of me
I don’t really care
If all my efforts are in vain
‘Cause clearly I’m indifferent
But one question still remains
Do you like me?
Do you like me?

This is my attempt
To make you like me
Track Name: Something Bigger
Have you ever looked up to the sky
Ever wondered why
We are even here
Figure out the meaning to this life
We live and then we die
I’ll try to make it clear

The world is big and I am oh so small
A single brick in China’s great big wall
A blade of grass on Serengeti’s plain
A grain of sand in Middle East terrain

And it makes me see
Who I’m meant to be
Deep inside of me
It brings me to my knees
And it makes me see
Who I’m meant to be
Deep inside of me
Someone who believes
In something bigger

Ever get delusional and found
The earth revolves around
Everything you do
Thinking you’re the center of it all
Makes the world seem small
And covers up the truth

If life’s Las Vegas I’m a Christmas light
A millimeter of Mt Everest’s height
A fleeting thought deep down in Einstein’s brain
A water drop in the torrential rain

And it makes me see
Who I’m meant to be
Deep inside of me
It brings me to my knees
And it makes me see
Who I’m meant to be
Deep inside of me
Someone who believes
In something bigger

If life’s a forest I’m a broken branch
A flake of snow beneath an avalanche
A tiny fish in the pacific blue
But you still listen when I talk to you

And it makes me see
Who I’m meant to be
Deep inside of me
It brings me to my knees
And it makes me see
Who I’m meant to be
Deep inside of me
Someone who believes
In something bigger
Track Name: Resolution
We start the final countdown
It’s time to look ahead
I stop to take a moment
Looking back instead
I had some good intentions
That got lost along the way
And now a whole year later
I am still the same

Next time I won’t be here
I’m determined
No time like a new year
To start over again

Every day’s a brand new chance to
Pick another tune to dance to
Or just start over
Leave behind procrastinating
No excuse is worth the waiting
Today’s the day for a resolution

Deep into February
It’s hard to stay on track
Then just a few months later
I’ve reverted back
My temperamental nature
Is driving me insane
Can’t wait till late December
For the chance to change

This time I won’t delay
‘Till tomorrow
No need to hesitate
Starting over again

Every day’s a brand new chance to
Pick another tune to dance to
Or just start over
Leave behind procrastinating
No excuse is worth the waiting
Today’s the day for a resolution

Woah, woah, woah, yeah
Woah, woah, woah

No time like a new year
To start over
But don’t wait for a new year
To start over again

Every day’s a brand new chance to
Pick another tune to dance to
Or just start over
Leave behind procrastinating
No excuse is worth the waiting
Today’s the day
For a resolution, resolution, resolution

Every day’s a brand new chance to
Pick another tune to dance to
Or just start over
Leave behind procrastinating
No excuse is worth the waiting
Today’s the day for a resolution

Woah, woah, woah, yeah
Woah, woah, woah
Track Name: Another Chance
It seems like lately you are empty promises
Time after another, and I wonder why I bother
You disappoint me
Every time you give your word
And I hope this time you’ll make it
But I know somehow you’ll break it
And you don’t even know

That I’m giving you another chance
Though I oughta forget you
I’ve decided to let you
Take advantage of the circumstance
You’re unlike any other
So I’m giving you another chance

You come back to me with another great excuse
Don’t know if I’m believing
‘Cause you just might be deceiving
I want to give up, but I just can’t walk away
We just might be perfection
But for now it’s all rejection

And I’m giving you another chance
Though I oughta forget you
I’ve decided to let you
Take advantage of the circumstance
You’re unlike any other
So I’m giving you another chance

If you break my heart again
I will prove it to you then
And if you break my heart again
I will prove it to you then
And hope that you know

That I’m giving you another chance
Though I oughta forget you
I’ve decided to let you
Take advantage of the circumstance
You’re unlike any other
So I’m giving you another chance

Though I oughta forget you
I’ve decided to let you
Take advantage of the circumstance
You’re unlike any other
So I’m giving you another
Giving you another chance
Track Name: Square Peg
Look up the definition
The word is normalcy
You’ll find the adjacent picture
Won’t look at all like me
Sometimes I’m on the sidelines
Sometimes I’m center stage
I don’t like it in the middle
I’m just not built that way
You might just think I’m strange

But I’m a square peg in a round hole
And I never quite fit in
Just a little left of normal
On the outside looking in
Though I may be somewhat different
I’m just trying to find my place
But I’m a square peg in a round hole
You could call me out of shape

I chose to play piano
Instead of basketball
First born but not the oldest
It don’t make sense at all
Not wrong to write left-handed
Or see movies all alone
My friends have started families
I’m fine still on my own
It’s unconventional

But I’m a square peg in a round hole
And I never quite fit in
Just a little left of normal
On the outside looking in
Though I may be somewhat different
I’m just trying to find my place
But I’m a square peg in a round hole
You could call me out of shape

I’m not trying to be different
Just want to be myself
Though at times I wish I was like everybody else
But everybody’s different
It’s never gonna change
I’m taking joy in knowing that’s the way
We’re all the same

But I’m a square peg in a round hole
And I never quite fit in
Just a little left of normal
On the outside looking in
Though I may be somewhat different
I’m just trying to find my place
But I’m a square peg in a round hole
You could call me out of shape

Woah I never quite fit in
Just a little left of normal
On the outside looking in
Though I may be somewhat different
I’m just trying to find my place
But I’m a square peg in a round hole
You could call me out of shape

You could call me
You could call me out, out of shape
Wouldn’t have it any other way
Track Name: There Is A Love
Time...slips away
And you...have lived another loveless day
You must discover a love that is true
Is there another longing for you
You fear...that you will always be alone

There is a love, like no other
Waiting for you today
If you believe that the Heavenly Father
Gave up His Son so that you could be saved
And the emptiness inside
You’ve tried so hard to hide
Will vanish like tears in the rain
There is a love, like no other
Only a prayer away

Love...has never wandered far from you
So why...why are you feeling like you do
Although you’ve never been a stranger to love
It doesn’t matter, it’s never enough
And now...you wonder will it ever change

There is a love, like no other
Waiting for you today
If you believe that the Heavenly Father
Gave up His Son so that you could be saved
And the emptiness inside
You’ve tried so hard to hide
Will vanish like tears in the rain
There is a love, like no other
Only a prayer away

Now close your eyes
And try to visualize
The nails in His skin
That draw the blood from within
The pain that He feels
So intense and so real
He’s in your place
But there’s love on His face
Because He knows that you won’t be alone

There is a love
There is a love

There is a love, like no other
Waiting for you today
If you believe that the Heavenly Father
Gave up His Son so that you could be saved
And the emptiness inside
You’ve tried so hard to hide
Will vanish like tears in the rain
There is a love, like no other
Only a prayer away
Track Name: Broken
Didn't see it coming
But I was not suprised
No one can expect to last that long
Out on a ledge
With their eyes closed

And here I am before You now
Flat upon my back
Fallen from the pedestal
That's crumbled from the cracks
That I have painted over all my life
I've been trying to hide
That I am not that strong
But I've known all along
And now I'm broken
Yes, I am broken

I have been deceitful
Even to myself
Trying to pretend
I’m not the man I know I am
Saying I’m doing fine

And here I am before You now
Flat upon my back
Fallen from the pedestal
That's crumbled from the cracks
That I have painted over all my life
I've been trying to hide
That I am not that strong
But I've known all along
And now I'm broken

It’s always been easy to ignore
I’ve never fallen quite this far before
As I’m lying on the floor I clearly see
That my life’s a constant masquerade
Hidden by the perfect mask I’ve made
Now I’ve finally found my place
Is where I need You
Jesus, I need You

Here I am before You now
Flat upon my back
I have fallen from the pedestal
That's crumbled from the cracks
That I have painted over all my life
I've been trying to hide
That I am not that strong
But I've known all along
And now I'm broken
Yes I am broken

And I need to be put back together again
Track Name: The Other Corner
He looks at me with evil eyes
He fills my head with brutal lies
He tricks me into compromise
Identity is his surprise

In the other corner, this man, a mystery
In the other corner, this friend becomes my enemy
In the other corner, I stare in disbelief
In the other corner, he looks a lot like me
Like me

Victorious I’ve been before
I’m confident I’ll win once more
My arrogance he won’t ignore
He knocks me down; I hit the floor

In the other corner, this man, a mystery
In the other corner, this friend becomes my enemy
In the other corner, I stare in disbelief
In the other corner, he looks a lot like me

He can only win if I let him
It’s sad that he has won this many times
He can only win if I let him
I step into the ring ready for the fight

In the other corner, this man, a mystery
In the other corner, this friend becomes my enemy
In the other corner, I stare in disbelief
In the other corner, he looks a lot like me
Like me.

Looks a lot like me, just might even be
Track Name: Completely
I see her standing there
With her hands stretched out to You
So many people but she is in an empty room
And though they start to stare
She doesn’t care
That her love is on display
I want to worship you that way.

Completely
I offer up my life to You completely
I wanna live it bold and indiscreetly
‘Cause I’m not a slave
To what the world thinks of me
Your blood has covered up my shame
Completely

I see You hanging there
With Your hands stretched out for me
So many people making Your life a mockery
And through the pain You bear
You don’t care
That Your love is on display
I know You weren’t ashamed of me

Completely
I offer up my life to You completely
I wanna live it bold and indiscreetly
‘Cause I’m not a slave
To what the world thinks of me
Your blood has covered up my shame
Completely

You took the thorns, You took the nails
That were destined for my skin
You took the shame, You took the guilt
You took the weight of all my sin
You gave Your life for me
And for a moment faced defeat
But then You rose again
To make Your love complete

Completely
I offer up my life to You completely
I wanna live it bold and indiscreetly
‘Cause I’m not a slave
To what the world thinks of me
Your blood has covered up my shame
And I will never be the same
Completely
