Track Name: Eyes On Heaven
I stood in her room on the second floor
We were there for so many years, at least it felt that way
As I kissed her face, I saw furrows form around her eyebrows
She was in so much pain
Why can't you take her much earlier

The world is dark and light in her tired eyes
Generations smile down from beyond

Eyes on heaven, I know she's there
Eyes from heaven can't wait to take her home
To take her home
To take her home
To take her home
Home...
Track Name: Carrie
God give me grace so I can push through the shitty days ahead
Let me be a man for my family
The burden’s off my chest like a decade-long memory
Even though it was just four

Carrie, don’t go
I can’t be alone
Carrie please, stay with me
now I can’t see you physically
I don’t know what else to say
Track Name: Soul Sublime
I searched my soul;
I took my time.
If only day and night would melt away from my frame of mind.
I couldn't forgive, but that's the crime,
The only thing that stops me from reaching soul sublime.

Commonplace memories
shook me off my feet.
Kodak memories spear into my sides and I cry,
"It can't be over.
The journey's only started."
