Black Cloud

I've got a black cloud raining inside of my head 
The day cannot break it and the wind cannot blow it away
Black cloud, black cloud raining on all my parades
Yeah, I've got a black cloud raining inside of my head

Ooooh

I've got a black cloud raining inside of my mind
Where the wind cannot reach it and the daylight cannot seem to shine
Black Cloud, black cloud why have you come here to stay
I don't know where you came from
But pray that you just go away

Ooooh

I've got a white cloud forming inside of my head
It shines like the sun and brings light even brighter than day
White cloud, white cloud forming inside of my heart
It shines through the darkness
It's breaking my black cloud apart

Strap On Your Boots (Purpose)

Look out the window tell me what do you see? 
Is it rivers, is it forests, is it mountains or sea?
One's thing's for sure, you'll never understand why
Until you strap on your boots and take a wander outside

Look out the window tell me what do you see?
Is it people, is it cities or the busy old street?
One thing's for sure, you'll never understand why
Until you strap on your shoes and take a wander outside

You need to learn to be content
Wherever you are now
Don't worry about tomorrow, while today is running out
You only have one chance to get it right while you are here
So don't worry about tomorrow
Or today will disappear


You're here for a reason in this season and time
Have you ever stopped to think or try to understand why
Your purpose in this place is just waiting outside
So step out the door and go experience life

Wandering (Refresh)

Take me away, close out everything 
Forest glade, fountain spring, just wandering
Take me away, away from everything
Countless leaves on a thousand trees
Just wandering

Lay by side
Breath it in
Oh free my soul
Let the light in


Timeless beauty, sing your melody
Follow me to the mountain stream, your symphony

Bind me to your heart
Your create the songs, every whisper in the trees
Bind me to your heart
You created light and breathe life into me

Lucy’s Song (Pursuit)

Wait for me, wait for me 
I hear you calling me softly
Whispering through the trees

Wait for me, wait for me
I feel the heart of the forest
Dancing with the blossom trees

I will not leave your side
I will not be left behind
Let me go, let me go with you


Wait for me, wait for me
I see you off in the distance, standing with the evergreens

Oooh you fill my heart with wonder
Oooh you fill my heart

Rise and Shine (Hope)

Rise and shine and don't miss the first light 
Midst a lingering for a short time
Hazy blankets over fields all graceful and white

Rise and shine don't miss the bluebird's song
Carried on the wind and moved along
Joyful melodies rise with the breaking dawn

Wake, oh awaken, the day is bright, the day is young
Awaken with the dawn


Rise and shine drink in the peaceful morn
Calm and gentle she sings night is gone
Sleepy flowers blossom, for the rising sun

Oh sleeper, don't you miss the morning
Hope is rising like the radiant light of day
