Track Name: Shine Your Light
Shine Your Light
©Tania Joy

I think about the day we met
So broken so alone
Life as real as it gets
I can’t recall the words you said
The way life used to be
But I won’t forget
The light that set me free

Let it shine, let it shine on me
Let it shine, let it shine on me

Far from those bitter days and second glances
You bore you soul with open arms
Your heart in your hands
I can’t recall the words you said
The way life used to be
But I won’t forget
The light that set me free

Let it shine, let it shine on me
Let it shine, let it shine on me
In the arms of your love, I will be set free
When you shine your light on me

Now love is fierce and kind
It makes me weak
You stand beside me everyday
And prove your love to me

I can’t recall the words you say
The way life used to be
But I won’t forget
The light that set me free

Let it shine, let it shine, on me
Let it shine, let it shine on me
In the arms of your love, I will be set free
When you shine your light on me

Let it shine, let it shine, on me
In the arms of your love, I will be set free
When you shine your light on me
When you shine your light on me
When you shine your light on me
Track Name: I Push, You Pull
I Push, You Pull

I reach for you in a sky so gold
The day grows long, the night gets cold

You draw me near, by firelight
You steal my heart and hold so tight

You bear down like a lightening storm
I crash so hard on that distant shore

Am I stumbling on this same old stone
On this winding road alone

I push you pull away
I push you pull
And the words get in the way
I push you pull away

Cast your doubt on the open wind
You tear my heart from my chest again

Are we bound to make the same mistakes
If we pull together, will we bend and break?

I push you pull away
I push you pull
And the words get in the way
I push you pull away
The weight is so heavy
With the words we never say
I push you pull away

Oh the weight is so heavy
With the words we never say
I push you pull
I push and you pull
I push you pull away

Listen up baby
Hear me through
Listen up baby
I need you to hear the truth

My whole life
Been waiting for you
My whole damn life
Till you walk in the room

If my love
is good enough
I will never let you down
As long as you want me
I'll be around

I will never lie
Or hide the truth
I will never lie
Take my hand and love me too

If my love
is good enough
I will never let you down
As long as you want me
I'll be around

Didn't mean to feel it
But I felt it that day
Didn't mean to say it
But I said it anyway

If my love
is good enough
I will never let you down
As long as you want me
I'll be around

Gonna hold on to this feeling
From the day it was born
Gonna hold on to this feeling
I'm gonna tell you every morn

If my love
is good enough
I will never let you down
As long as you want me
I'll be around
Track Name: New Ending
New Ending
©Tania Joy

Standing still I look around
These unfamiliar feet are on the ground
How did I get here I don't know
It's time to rest my worn out soul

We know the truth when we are young
March to the cadence of our own drum
It’s not too late to sing along
One step forward on

I'm just trying to write a new ending, to my beginning
It's a chance I never thought I'd have
I'm just trying to write a new ending, to my beginning
One step forward two steps back

Heart on my sleeve and eyes shut tight
I took a step towards the shinning light
Running in circles for far too long
Is it true that life goes on?

I'm just trying to write a new ending, to my beginning
It's a chance I never thought I'd have
I'm just trying to write a new ending, to my beginning
One step forward two steps back

We know the truth when we are young
March to the cadence of a different drum
It’s not too late to sing along
Two steps forward on

I'm just trying to write a new ending, to my beginning
It's a chance I never thought I'd have
I'm just trying to write a new ending, to my beginning
Two steps forward on
Two steps forward on

Track Name: I Won't Quit
I Won’t Quit
©Tania Joy

Everyday, in this love game
I’m your first class fool
Every night, of this prize fight
Has got me hooked

Loving you, loving me
It’s the gift, you gave me
For a lifetime, a lifetime
I won’t quit, loving you

Ever since, that fist kiss
You got me, weak in the knees
I took the chance, on a slow dance
To keep you close

Loving you, loving me
It’s the gift, you gave me
For a lifetime, a lifetime
I won’t quit, loving you

We all pretend to be wild and free
We live our lives, by childhood dreams
If the love we want, is there for the taking
Embrace it, with grace and say…
With grace…

Loving you, loving me
It’s the gift, you gave me
For a lifetime, a lifetime
I won’t quit, loving you
(repeat)
