Track Name: Safe Haven
Take my hand
It won't hurt so bad when we fall
I see the rain in your eyes
I'm living a story that makes you cry

I've learned to live in silence
Hiding from the ghouls that live inside
My heart cries your name
And I hope you feel the same

But it's okay
Because you're here
Somewhere you're a star in the sky
You should know you helped me to fly
But it's okay
Because you're here
And while everywhere else is danger
You're my safe haven

Raw winter skin craving summer's love
Long live those sweet summer nights
Dark room developed memories on the wall
I miss them all

Shy houses hiding on the coastline
That's where I long to be
So far away from fear
Just you and me

But it's okay
Because you're here
Somewhere you're a star in the sky
You should know you helped me to fly
But it's okay
Because you're here
And while everywhere else is danger
You're my safe haven

But it's okay
Because you're here
And while everywhere else is danger
You're my safe haven
Track Name: Long Run
Tears will sting your tired eyes
And fear will leave you paralyzed
But I'll be here for the long run

I don't know where you have been
Trapped inside your mind again
Just know you're not alone

I'm learning to love myself
One step at a time
I'm learning to love myself
Cause hate is such a crime
I'm learning to love myself
One step at a time
I'm learning to love myself

I can see you'll rise again
Take the pain from deep within
And sell it to your soul

When you believe that all is lost
I don't care what the cost
I'll turn your heart around

You've got to love yourself
One step at a time
You've got to love yourself
Cause hate is such a crime
You've got to love yourself
One step at a time
You've got to love yourself

Rising from the ashes is never an easy thing to do
Looking for love when you should be loving you
Tripping and falling over fragments of our lives
I'll pull you from the darkness and bring you to the light

We're learning to love ourselves
One step at a time
We're learning to love ourselves
Cause hate is such a crime
We're learning to love ourselves
One step at a time
Cause we've got to love ourselves
Track Name: You are Yours
Safety didn’t want to find him
Not even in his dreams
Sobbing onto the windowsill
And sinking into the sheets

Met a girl of only twenty
An angel who listened to the stars
She helped him off of the pavement
Told him “this world is ours"

And just because you aren’t perfect
Doesn’t mean that you’re not worth it
Don’t nobody tell you different
Cause you are yours
It may not seem that way but
That's what your heart is for
Everyone else is angels
And so are you
Don’t see yourself in a dark light
Just cause that's where you were born

Sticks and stones will break our bones
And words will too
Believe me when I say they’ll hurt more than anything else you

Are overwhelmed by life
Underwhelmed by love
You'll have to learn to adore yourself
This isn’t something you can walk out of

And just because you aren’t perfect
Doesn’t mean that you’re not worth it
Don’t nobody tell you different
Cause you are yours
It may not seem that way but
That's what your heart is for
Everyone else is angels
And so are you
Don’t see yourself in a dark light
Just ‘cause that's where you were born

Don’t show them the bruises
Cause they’re not really there
Don’t open the curtains
It’ll get you nowhere

Don’t pretend you’re living
Don’t pretend you’re loved
Don’t show them you’re hurting
Cause it’s not enough

And just because you aren’t perfect
Doesn’t mean that you’re not worth it
Don’t nobody tell you different
Cause you are yours
It may not seem that way but
That's what your heart is for
Everyone else is angels
And so are you
Don’t see yourself in a dark light
Just ‘cause that’s where you were born

And just because you aren’t perfect
Doesn’t mean that you’re not worth it
Don’t nobody tell you different
Cause you are yours
Track Name: Silent Cry
Sometimes at night I whisper your name in the dark
I close my eyes and make big wishes on stars
Strip off my skin and use your love to clean all the scars
Feel your arms around me even though you're much to far

I have big fears that I never want you to here
Like how I still wonder if you were sincerely sincere
So I hold my body and whisper these things to myself
Cause I'd rather crumble than call to someone for help

So I'll keep falling
Until someone asks me why
I'll keep falling
While I'm sitting by the pines
I'll keep falling
Until someone asks me why
I'll keep falling
Until someone hears my silent cry

Sometimes I cry for no good reason at all
Climb into the clouds and just let the tears fall
Then you come around and give me a new set of eyes
No longer a loser, suddenly I am the prize

So I'll keep falling
Until someone asks me why
I'll keep falling
While I'm sitting by the pines
I'll keep falling
Until someone asks me why
I'll keep falling
Until someone hears my silent cry

Sometimes I feel safe and warm like the sun
But I'm still okay even though my place is gone
I can still hide deep in my feelings I know
It's not alright but it's just so hard to let go

So I'll keep falling
Until someone asks me why
I'll keep falling
While I'm sitting by the pines
I'll keep falling
Until someone asks me why
I'll keep falling
Until someone hears my silent cry

I'll keep falling
I'll keep falling
I'll keep falling
I'll keep falling
Until someone hears my silent cry
