Track Name: Labor Of Love
I could only wish someone told me about the way I go back and forth, back and forth, back and forth
Back to the way I was comfortable, true, but destructible
Losin myself in everything that has to do with nothin
I could be the one to live it up, give it up
Everything I believe in
But I keep runnin', runnin', runnin' 
That's the labor of love
runnin', runnin', runnin' 
That's the labor of love

And I am everything I need
(Didn't lose sight what constitutes a good life)
I know all that I can be

I'll write myself a letter 
To tell me that I'm beautiful
Listen to the words of India.Arie
Feel the beating of my heart when I start thinkin' of all the things I could be doin
Goin through the consequence of wakin' up and feelin
Maybe the world's got the wrong idea
of what I wanna be 
Cuz I'd rather be writin' a song about how I wanna family

Runnin, runnin, runnin,
that's the labor of love
Runnin, runnin, runnin,
that's the labor of love

Never had a dream, just things I believed in
Me, myself, and I could be the reason
For clearin' all the demons inside

And I am everything I need
I know all that I can be

I'll write myself a letter 
To tell me that I'm beautiful
Listen to the words of India.Arie
Feel the beating of my heart when I start thinkin' of all the things I could be doin
Goin through the consequence of wakin' up and feelin
Maybe the world's got the wrong idea
of what I wanna be 
Cuz I'd rather be writin' a song about how I wanna family

I'll fall back down for love
I'll fall back down
I'll fall back down for love
I'll fall back down

I'll write myself a letter 
To tell me that I'm beautiful
Listen to the words of India.Arie
Feel the speed of my heart whenever I start somethin' someone told me what I should be doin' 
Goin through the consequence of wakin' up and feelin
Maybe the world's got the wrong idea
of what I wanna be 
Cuz I'd rather be writin' a song about how I wanna family

Runnin, runnin, runnin,
 that's the labor of love
Runnin, runnin, runnin,
 that's the labor of love
Track Name: Live And We Learn
You are not the ordinary person in the crowd
Looking for a heart to carry when you’ve been pushed around


Well, I could see it in you
High in view
 
Live and we learn
Love in return
This is the miracle we earn
Holdin’ our pride
Set the divide between the heavens and the earth
Live and we learn
Love in return
This is the miracle we earn
Silver and gold
Hidin’ the soul from the world
 
Never wanted more than all the peace that I could find

Swirling conversations left me carelessly behind
Trusted every single step to fall right into  play
Compromising thrills with never knowing where I’ll stay

Well, I could see it in you
High in view

Live and we learn
Love in return
This is the miracle we earn
Holdin’ our pride
Set the divide between the heavens and the earth
Live and we learn
Love in return
This is the miracle we earn
Silver and gold
Hidin’ the soul from the world

Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da (X4)

Live and we learn
Love in return
This is the miracle we earn
Holdin’ our pride
Set the divide between the heavens and the earth
Live and we learn
Love in return
This is the miracle we earn
Silver and gold
Hidin’ the soul from the world

Well, I could see it in you
Track Name: Seasons
Seasons

There's clarity in mysteries of what we have become
Finding the sincerity of what has made us one
In love, in love, in love
Am I who you think I am
Am I who you feel
Or do I serve a vanity
That only one could heal
In love, in love, in love, in love
I'll be the one I call home
My baby
I will always know the seasons when they fall
Won't make believe in what we truly are
Am I still yours
If you have been mine
Or am I still stuck with
Reason in rhythm and rhyme
You have been the sun
And with your light I am the moon
I am pulling waves with you, with you, with you
I'll be the one I call home
My baby
I will always know the seasons when they fall
Won't make believe in what we truly are
Am I still yours
If you have been mine
Or am I still stuck with
Reason in rhythm and rhyme

Do do do do do do do do do, do do do do do do do do do do, do do do do do do do do do do, do do do do do do do do do do
Tell me what you see
Will you put your trust in me
Tell me what you see
Will you put your trust in me
