Airborne ©2011 Alice Bierhorst/BMI 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

Play the Hand ©2011 Alice Bierhorst/BMI 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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

All Shall Be Revealed ©2011 Alice Bierhorst/BMI 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
