Track Name: Butterfly
with sacrifices over
now I can hold in my arms beloved
making sense out of circumstance
decode the message of a fate I can believe in

oh it’s been a long time coming
home is where the love is

I get on by sail on dreams come float along with me
cause I guess that the ground’s been holding you down
and i know you can fly just be my butterfly

I smell love on you do you smell love on me
I think this was meant to be soon to see
the seeds that we plant will grow and then overflow
a blossoming garden that we can call our own
in the sunshine we'll thrive it will make us feel alive

but even on the dark stormy days
the brightest colors won’t fade


when you find you can be no other
we all start out as caterpillar
metamorphosis through chrysalis
all you gotta do is follow your bliss
ain’t nothing that you’re gonna miss


spread your wings and fly fluttering through the sky
the sun and moon lead a compass you don’t need
navigating the stars no distance too far
some much love in these hearts that is all you ever need
butterfly you’re a butterfly to me
Track Name: Wildflowers
You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
Sail away, kill off the hours
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, find you a lover
Go away somewhere all bright and new
I have seen no other
Who compares with you

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
You belong with your love on your arm
You belong somewhere you feel free

Run away, go find a lover
Run away, let your heart be your guide
You deserve the deepest of cover
You belong in that home by and by

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong somewhere close to me
Far away from your trouble and worries
You belong somewhere you feel free
You belong somewhere you feel free
Track Name: Simple Life (feat. Mary Wallin)
you know i’m not always perfect
but i do the best i can
over complicate what is simple
it seems so easy in the end

i go about living life
doing what i do to get by
i won’t trade these years for anything
cause when i got you i got everything

it’s a simple life
it’s a simple life

i know you’re not always perfect
but you're the best i’ve ever had
when struggling to find your purpose
think of all the good for which you stand

you go about living life
doing what you do to get by 
i hope you don’t trade me for anything
my promise to you i’ll be your everything


all the worry and stress that turns your hair from brown to grey
it'll all be worth it if we stick to what we say
I made you promises that i intend to keep
all we gotta do is to make it another day
Track Name: Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now (feat. Mary Wallin)
Looking in your eyes I see a paradise
This world that I've found is too good to be true
Standing here beside you, want so much to give you
This love in my heart that I'm feeling for you

Let 'em say we're crazy, I don't care about that
Put your hand in my hand baby don't ever look back
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby we can make it if we're heart to heart

And we can build this thing together
Stand this stormy weather
Nothings gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers
We'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us
Nothing's gonna stop us now

I'm so glad I found you, I'm not gonna lose you
Whatever it takes I will stay here with you
Take it to the good times, see it through the bad times
Whatever it takes here's what I'm gonna do

Let 'em say we're crazy, what do they know
Put your arms around me baby don't ever let go
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby we can make it if we're heart to heart


Oh, all that I need is you
All that I ever need
And all that I want to do
Is hold you forever, and ever and ever

Track Name: Come Alive
awoke today saw your face
so beautiful with the sun shining on you
the curious thing if I can be honest
no expecting much but now i’m astonished

your eyes burn to the depths of me
soul is kind can you feel my ecstasy
your touch so warm, skin so soft
love so deep i can feel your thoughts, all your thoughts

the more i love you i can see life from a different view
a nice perspective and i promise that i'll stay here with you
this kinda thing it doesn’t happen every lifetime
my hand's in your hand we’re gonna make this fairytale come alive

the future bright sky clear
sand under foot a hint of salt in the air
if tides turn then time flies
all cliches yeah we defy

like two chemicals that start to react
they are transformed when they meet by sheer contact
sparks fly as we light up the sky


looking back to what has been
you swore to me we' be everlasting friends
though we don't have it all figured out
the fact we’re here now means it all works out 
as we journey toward the horizon
side by side that’s how we’re gonna make it

years in the wrong place nothing would seem to take
all with the intent to learn from our mistakes
a friend to believe in a partner to dream with
someone to love or simple just be with
come alive
