Track Name: King of the Night
king of the night
my song is rising to you
the sound of the birds
and children's gentle breathing
sing, hallelujah
sing, glory to you
king of the night

king of the night
the night you were betrayed
by a love
gone wrong
i know you heard the angels sing
hallelujah
sing, glory to you
king of the night

hey, father of love
there's a hole in my world
there's a hole in my world
can only be filled by you

hey, giver of life
there's a hunger inside
there's a hunger inside
can only be filled by you

king of the night
i've been running from you
and i am afraid
but i choose to trust your ways
hallelujah
sing, glory to you
king of the night
Track Name: beauty & the beast
waking up in late afternoon
you can't seem to shake it off
coffee black, cigarette
working out is not enough
to erase all your thought
and to convince you
all of this is not your fault
you will find the beast in you

beasts of the air, beasts of the field
coming out to see the sun
we forgot the message of love
the beauty and the beast in you

beast of the woods, beast of the seas
learning how to live as one
we forgot the message of love
the beauty and the beast in you

just go out, lay on the lawn
this is a breakthrough
it is nicer than you thought
and you've got a mind to
go and take yourself a walk
somewhere you've never been to
try yourself to get lost
you will find the beast in you
Track Name: change your mind
what do you want to be when you grow up, babe
did you get stuck, babe
living in a fantasy
all these times, they've been changing
rearranging
living with a broken heart

you've got to change your mind
you've got to draw the line
girl, you know the dark is not your only friend

what did you think of me when i was younger
did i make you hunger - always coming back for more
now this house is sitting empty - you really hurt me
baby, if you want to know

staying away from you is all i can do for you
i'd rather lie to you than to lose you now
i can't lose you now

what becomes of love when it is over
is it just over - falling like a shooting star
or does it hang on forever - gently hovers
entering your dreams at night
Track Name: father's heart - lover's hand
hope is in your hand
and it's pulling me out of the sandspit
oh son, oh man

come two by two
colored pink and blue
oh girl, my world

but i wrote you a love song
and i changed it to the third person
and i hummed it under my breath as i made love to you
but the lights turned out and the colors fled
to a safer place to another bed
so call me quietly down to you this evening

try to understand
i am not a jealous man
but you are light
babe, you are air

only he can restore me
according to his mercy
oh son, oh man

when i came to you - you were sleeping
and when my train arrived - you were leaving
we can break this ice and calm the seas of treason
and i wish that i was a simple man
with a father's heart and a lover's hand
so call me quietly down to you this evening

and baby if you want to be my love
you're gonna have to learn how to trust
and i know it isn't really all that tough
it just seems to be

I'm calling out your name in the storm
you're laying in your bed safe and warm
i never had a cause to do you harm
it's just some lightning
