Track Name: Pretty Tune
Pretty Tune

Our love it was a song about a season
Our love like a roller coaster tune

Erase the lines of what I define
Look inside my mind and I will find my treasons
Call me on the telephone
Forget the text I am here sitting all alone
With my reasons
For losing you

Our love it was a song about a season
Our love it ended slightly out of tune

Pull apart all the memories
Leaving tears that arise a possibility of a new life
Swallow pride and just let it slide
Cut the tape that I’m spinning buried in behind
On why why why
I’m losing you

Our love it was a song about a season
Our love it was such a pretty tune

Pretty tune…

Track Name: Wasting Time
Lay down your armour
Impregnable shield
With a false sense of honour
Where nothing is real

Keep on looking good
Telling yourself you're doing fine
Live the life you should/would/could
That you hold in your mind
But don't go wasting your time
Don't go wasting time

Lay down your shield
Your chest pate and your heavy sword
A truth will be revealed
If you protect less then you receive more

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler © 2013
Track Name: Phoenix
It is the fiery edge of the sun coming down on the jungle
Igniting the leaves and dusty shadows
The breeze moves upon the trees scattered across the lawn
The tiger comes alive

Turning sorrow into laughter
Changing water into wine
The diamonds in the ashes bruised released
To sparkle over time

It is the deluge ripping up the shoreline
Washing away everything that we've known
Coming to grips with the face of the future fixed like a Phoenix
To rise and soar above the ashes

Time is the shepherd let it lead us to healing
That we should find who we really are

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler & Ari Neufeld © 2011
Track Name: Step Back
Step out away from all of it
The void that awaits the fall
Smell your embrace on my arm
Step out away from all of it
I wish that you would call
Hear your rumble in my heart

Falling on both sides of the fence
The green grass eternal call
Caught up in senseless self defence
The war where one will fall away

Step back away from all of it
Stand up straight and tall
Feel your heavy weighted harm
Step back away from all of it
Larger than life when small
See this communion so strong

Falling on both sides of the fence
The green grass eternal call
Wrapped up in senseless self defence
The war where we all will fall away

Falling on both sides of the fence
The green grass eternal fall
Call out in senseless self defence
The heart will heed your call
Today

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler © 2013
Track Name: Love Myself
I wish I knew how to love myself
The way that I love you
I'd be ten times taller and the world a lighter shade of blue
The light that's in your eyes
The way I watch you move

I wish I knew how to love myself
The way that you love me
I'd wake up every morning feeling free
I'd shed the winter weight
My eyes would surely see
All the love that I have inside of me

The tragedy of pain
Would evaporate with ease

I wish I knew how to love myself
The way that I love you
For the sum of all your darkness and beauty too
The reflection in your eyes
That shows my heart in you

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler © 2011
Track Name: Dreaming
I'm usually pretty good at everything I do
Everything I do except for me an you
When all the signs are pointing do not enter here
I hit the gas I'm speeding towards all my fears

And I
I don't want to bring you down
I don't want to fight
I only want to see you soul take flight
And I
I'll never forget loving you
And I'll never curse your name
I'll never give up hope for us someday

I liked it better when I could see you every day
An uppercut of reality was always in my way
And now I'm lonely dreaming dreams that we used to dream
As ambiguous as you and I you and I may seem

And I
I'll never stop loving you
And I'll never curse your name
I'll never give up hope for us someday

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler © 2010
Track Name: Dime Behind
Baby you don't have to hate me
Oh no for every moment that I've been wrong
I will try hard to listen
Maybe teach me the language of how you love

We won't fight anymore
But we'll knock on the door
Of something more
Wishing wells won't find
The dime behind right and wrong
Right and wrong

Baby please forgive me
I admit there were times when I did you wrong
That was never my intention
Maybe teach me the language of how you love

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler & Jory Kinjo © 2012
Track Name: Fell Your Love
Come on over here and settle down
Let me be the one that makes
A little bit of love to right this wrong
If that's what it takes
Nip it in the bud and move along
Expedite this wait
I don't want to waste another day
Wrapped up in this hate

And I know
A little bit of disconnect in between
And we're fighting over nothing and I want to scream
I know
There's a little bit of you that I need to see
And we're fighting over nothing and I want to feel your love

I think that we're coming from a different place
And our goals are not the same
Everything to me feels logical
But you're caught up in this blame
I'm willing to abide and apologize
For the part that I create
But I need you to meet me in the middle of the road
That we walk along today

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler © 2011
Track Name: Losertown
This bar's another losertown
Fresh deadbeat alcohol and stoned
Low brow humour wafting all around
I don't know how low I can go

Pour my another anyways
Lost from another broken day
Please fade frayed ambition to another common denominator down
Oh tell me about the good old days
Where the cost of our faith we paid
Well played laid ambition drove another set of stories in the ground
In the ground

This bar's another losertown
The same painted sinners row on row
Licensed indiscretion for another round
Oh I know how low you can go
I know how low you can go

Pour him another anyways
He's lost from another broken day
Please fade frayed ambition to another common denominator down
Oh tell me about the good old days
Where the cost of your love we paid
Well played laid ambition drove another set of of martyrs in the ground
In the ground

Pour me another anyways
We'll celebrate another living day
Our faded frayed ambition shoots another common denominator round
Oh tell me about the good old days
Where the cost of our lives we paid
Well played laid ambition for another living legacy is found
Well played laid ambition for another living legacy is found
It is found

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler © 2012
Track Name: Hidden Springs
Light a candle in a mason jar to guide me home
Follow footsteps through the snowy ground to know I'm not alone
Feel the winter wind across your face to resolve your soul
The legacy was built to share this space it is not my own

A splitting beacon of an old birch tree watches over sheep
Get the shovel out to clear this snow flood my heart for me
Gather closer as we bow our heads give thanks for the feast
This hidden valley from the world we know this sacred retreat

Crackling warmth of a brush pile fire encircled in trees
Echoing laughter race you down the hill we'll fall to our knees
Winter breath exhaled to work the land so we can breathe
Come all ye weary heavy burdened here you will find peace
Come all ye weary heavy burdened here you will find peace

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler © 2011
Track Name: Lullaby #7
Lay down in my bed so weary
A pillow for your head my beauty
Leave only breath
Sleep
Dream
Deeply

Music & Lyrics Written by Brent Tyler © 2013
Track Name: This Family
Advent calendars and time
Snowy village lit inviting white light
Tell the kids to go outside
Light a fire in this brush pile so high

This family it warms my heart
To a place that I call home
This family will never fall apart
Forever bonded by our love
Our love...

Brother Sister let me hear
Your resolutions for this coming new year
Father Mother do not fear
We're all together in this living room here

When you're tired and the dark is heavy
We are the people in your life
The light in your life
