Airborne

Life’s a golden ladder
Leading to the sweet hereafter
Tuning in the stations
Tryna find that song that helps us sing along

Laughing in the sunshine
What’s the hurry, we have time
When you open up that door
And pull me in my spirits soar, we’ll be

AIRBORNE
AIRBORNE
LIFT ME UP AGAIN
HOLD ME NOW I’M READY TO BEGIN

I’ve been so many places
Captive to so many faces
All alone in a crowd
It makes me want to laugh out loud

Tuning in the stations
Heartache spinning to elation
When you open up that door
And pull me in my spirits soar, we’ll be

CHORUS

Higher and higher and higher we climb
Now we’re leaving this world behind, we’ll be

AIRBORNE
AIRBORNE
LIFT ME UP AGAIN
HOLD ME NOW I’M READY TO BE

AIRBORNE
AIRBORNE
SKY IS ALL AGLOW
HOLD ME NOW AND NEVER LET ME GO

I Have Always Been Free
©2011 Alice Bierhorst/BMI

I wake up and I see
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE

I look down at my feet
And I'm where I'm meant to be
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE

I-I-I
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN

I wake up in the night, see I'm closer to the light
And there's nothing left to fear when you that you are here
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE
I HAVE ALWAYS just couldn't see
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN

I wake up and I see
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE

I look down at my feet
And I'm where I'm meant to be
I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FREE, etc.
Track Name: Play the Hand
Play the Hand

CHORUS
PLAY THE HAND
PLAY THE HAND
PLAY THE HAND YOU'VE BEEN GIVEN
PLAY THE HAND
PLAY THE HAND
PLAY THE HAND YOU'VE BEEN GIVEN

Everywhere a little sunshine
Everywhere a little rain
Everywhere you'll find people
Tryna ease the pain

Everyone's a lover
Coming in from the cold
There's so much to discover
Before we grow old

CHORUS

Sitting on the sidelines
Or milling with the crowd
Searching for that silver
Lining every cloud
Everyone's a gambler
Blowing on the dice
It's not just superstition
You can't roll them twice

CHORUS

When you reach the end of the line
You're gonna wish that you had just a little more time
Track Name: Better Angels
Better Angels
©2011 Alice Bierhorst/BMI

Oh, lord
I slipped up on the job again
I thought that I was God again
I lost my way

Oh, lord
I sacrificed a friend tonight
How could I be so short of sight
I fell from grace

I keep trying to appeal to my better angels
I keep trying to fight my way back to the light
Oh, but no matter what I do, this darkness still seeps through
I keep trying to appeal to my better angels

Oh, lord
Just when I thought I had it made
All my plans have been mislaid
Gone with the wind

Oh, lord
Is there something broke in me
Something beyond sympathy
Will calamities never end

CHORUS

If only I could wash away the past
If only I could wash away the past
And start anew

Oh, lord
Can you teach me to forgive
All my sins so I can live
Can live with myself

Oh, lord
I know I’m not the only one
All of us have hurt someone
And cried out for help

CHORUS
Track Name: Farther to Go
Farther to Go
©2011 Alice Bierhorst/BMI

FARTHER TO GO
We have FARTHER TO GO
Just how much farther
We'll never know

Bound our weakness
Progress is slow
Each on our journey
FARTHER TO GO

CHORUS
Look around
There's so much to see
All that is beautiful
All that is free
We can't unravel
Life's sweet mystery
FARTHER TO GO
For you and me

Look around
What a beautiful show
All that must change
All that must grow
Bound by our weakness
Progress is slow
As long as we're here
As long as we're here
As long as we're here
There will always be
FARTHER TO GO
There will always be
FARTHER TO GO
Track Name: Who
Who
©2011 Alice Bierhorst/BMI

WHO is this before me in the glass
Rushing at me as I pass
WHO is this before me, I don't know
If it's a friend or a foe

CHORUS
Every day I wake up
And I have to begin all over again
Every day I wake up
And there's clouds in my heart
I don't know where to start

WHO is at the window looking in
Tryna retrace where I've been
WHO is at the window looking out
Wondering what it's all about

CHORUS

I keep learning
I keep yearning
Searching for something that's true

WHO is in the mirror turning grey
I was a child yesterday
WHO is in the mirror in disguise
Still I see through the same eyes

CHORUS

I keep learning
I keep yearning
Searching for something that's true
Track Name: Train Song
Train Song
©2011 Alice Bierhorst/BMI

Do you wanna stay up all night
And ride the trains, pretty baby
Do you wanna stay up all night
I hope it rains
We'll be cozy and dry

CHORUS
Every time I see you
You are someone new
Every time you ride the rails
I see more of who

Do you wanna wake up with me
And ride the trains
Do you wanna make bets with me
I think it's you that's elevating

CHORUS

Do you wanna stay up all night
And ride the trains, pretty baby
Do you wanna stay up all night
I hope it rains
We'll be cozy and dry

CHORUS

Here it comes
Do you see it
There it goes
Disappearin'
Here it comes
Down the track now
There it goes
Fade to black now, etc.
Track Name: Bright at the End of the Day
Bright At The End Of The Day
©2011 Alice Bierhorst/BMI

Let me show you all I know
Before my strength is gone
Let me show you all I know
You've known it all along

Only love is built to last
Only love can stand the strain
Only love is built to last
The rest will blow away

CHORUS
It's warm in the summer
When everything is growing
It's cold in the winter
When everything is slowing
Time is an arrow
It's dark in the morning and
BRIGHT AT THE END OF THE DAY

Let me show you all I am
Let me show you in a word
Let me show you all I am
It's what you've always heard

CHORUS

The drum beats closer now
The drum beats closer now
Take my hand

CHORUS

CHORUS
Track Name: Golden Hours
Golden Hours
©2011 Alice Bierhorst/BMI

Come here
Come here
Hear the morning
Buzzing like a drunken choir

Come see
Come see
See the oak tree
Burning in the sunrise fire

CHORUS
GOLDEN HOURS
Underneath an open sky
GOLDEN HOURS
One day I'll have to say…

Climb up
Climb up
To the tree top
Shadows all around us - time stops

GOLDEN HOURS
Underneath an open sky
GOLDEN HOURS
One day I'll have to say…

You could be anything
You are part of everything

Come here
Come here
Hear the evening
Hushing in the twilight - silence

GOLDEN HOURS
Underneath an open sky
GOLDEN HOURS
One day I'll have to say
One day you'll finally say
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

CHORUS
ALL SHALL BE REVEALED
ALL SHALL BE REVEALED
In the rock and field
ALL SHALL BE REVEALED

There's always gonna be something to cry about
A shadow of a doubt
There's always gonna be someone who slips your grasp
Love is an open clasp

CHORUS

There's always gonna be some kind of mystery
A piece of the puzzle you just can't see
You gotta have faith that it's for the best
It's just another test - wait and see

CHORUS

Wave goodbye and say hello
It's the never-ending show
Wave goodbye and say hello
It's the never-ending show
Wave goodbye and say hello
It's the never-ending show
Wave goodbye and say hello
Just let go

CHORUS
