Track Name: She Whispers
SHE WHISPERS
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)

When the day is swallowed
And your chest is hallow
Your defenses down
She is the loudest sound

Oooo, How she whispers
Oooo, How she whispers
Oooo, How she whispers to you

Cloaked in her shadow
Her darkness bellows
The color of the day
quickly fades into grey

Oooo, How she whispers
Oooo, How she whispers
Oooo, How she whispers to you

There’s a light, there’s a light no shadow
There’s a light, there’s a light no shadow, oh
There’s a light, there’s a light no shadow, oh
Can touch, can touch, can touch

She can touch
Track Name: In the Fight
IN THE FIGHT
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)

In the fight, when I’ve lost my might
To keep calm and carry on
And will you really love all of me?
When you see
The darker things that lie underneath, me

My demons are coming out, coming out, coming out
My demons are coming out, coming out, coming out
And they’re so, loud
They’re so loud

In the fight, when you’ve lost your might
To keep calm and carry on
And will I really love all of you?
When nothing’s new
With the darker things that come into view of you

Your demons are coming out, coming out, coming out
Your demons are coming out, coming out, coming out
And they’re so loud
They’re so loud

Our demons are coming out, coming out, coming out
(In the fight, when I’ve lost my might)
Our demons are coming out, coming out, coming out
(To keep calm and carry on)
And they’re so loud
(And will you really love all of me? When you see?)
They’re so loud
(The darker things that lie underneath, me)
Track Name: Playback
PLAYBACK
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)
Jordan Brooke Hamlin, Here Comes Moses (ASCAP)

Hold your wicked tongue
Don’t let it run
You will live to regret
What I cannot forget

Hold your wicked tongue
Breathe deep in your lungs
‘Cause you can’t take it back
Knowing all that I lack

I’ve got it in my mind, rewind, playback
Can’t help but hear it, it’s an endless soundtrack
I’ve got it in my mind, rewind, playback
Can’t help but hear it, it’s an endless soundtrack
In my heart, in my head
Oh, the words you say will echo baby

Hold your wicked tongue
It’s a loaded gun
We have been here before
There’s no evening the score

Hold your wicked tongue
We will come undone
Words are bound to repeat
The refrains we will keep

I’ve got it in my mind, rewind, playback
Can’t help but hear it, it’s an endless soundtrack
I’ve got it in my mind, rewind, playback
Can’t help but hear it, it’s an endless soundtrack
In my heart, in my head
Oh, the words you say will echo baby

Echo baby, echo baby, echo baby
I play it over, I play it over again (echo baby)
I play it over, I play it over again (echo baby)

I’ve got it in my mind, rewind, playback
Can’t help but hear it, it’s an endless soundtrack
I’ve got it in my mind, rewind, playback
Can’t help but hear it, it’s an endless soundtrack
In my heart, in my head
Oh, the words you say will echo baby
Track Name: We Hold On
WE HOLD ON
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)
Jordan Brooke Hamlin, Here Comes Moses (ASCAP)

You grabbed your keys, ran out the door
You couldn’t take it anymore
There’s no around, there’s only through
And me concerned, with where I stood
I didn’t see you as I should
And the measure of the space between

It’s you and me and we’re keeping it all
We’re taking the hits and we’re not gonna fold
So just stay close to me, it’s where you’r suppose to be
Everybody bleeds, but we hold on

We raise a curtain, set the scene
I never planned to be so mean
And I don’t want to anymore
I took a drive to clear my head
Went over everything you said
It’s the same, this old routine

It’s you and me and we’re keeping it all
We’re taking the hits and we’re not gonna fold
So just stay close to me, it’s where you’r suppose to be
Everybody bleeds, but we hold on

We hold on…

It’s you and me and we’re keeping it all
We’re taking the hits and we’re not gonna fold
So just stay close to me, it’s where you’r suppose to be
Everybody bleeds, but we hold on
Track Name: Shaking the Walls
SHAKING THE WALLS
Jason Lehning, Topline/BMG-Chrysalis o.b.o. Tastes Like Chicken (BMI)
David Cameron Wilton, Loud Harp Publishing (SESAC)
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)

I hear your echo in the wind
Carrying my sails across the tide
I have to try, I have to try
I will do anything and I
Never close my eyes through the night
The glowing sky, will be my guide

And I, will go, cross lines
To worlds I've never known
And I, will overthrow divides
Shaking the walls, shaking the walls
Shaking the walls, shaking the walls

The waves are crashing at my side,
Never giving way through the night
Can't close my eyes, won't close my eyes
I’ll keep them fixed on the mark,
Keeping me from drifting away

And I, will go, cross lines
To worlds I've never known
And I, will overthrow divides
Shaking the walls, shaking the walls
Shaking the walls, shaking the walls

Hear it loud, falling to the ground
Here and now, walls are coming down
Hear it loud, falling to the ground
Here and now, walls are coming down

And I, will go, cross lines
To worlds I've never known
And I, will overthrow divides
Shaking the walls, shaking the walls
Shaking the walls, shaking the walls
Track Name: Bet On Me
BET ON ME
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)
Jordan Brooke Hamlin, Here Comes Moses (ASCAP)

Baby you just gotta bet, on me
Maybe you should take some time
To clear mind and think it over
Baby you just gotta bet, on me
Me and You

Love it isn’t love at all,
If it bends with every turn
So keep your eyes fixed ahead
Pass the point of no return
Can we break the chains of history?
Letting go of the who we use to be

Baby you just gotta bet, on me
Maybe you should take some time
To clear mind and think it over
Baby you just gotta bet, on me
Me and You

If storms are coming, let them come
They’re just as certain as the sun
So leave your worried mind to rest
Everybody comes undone
When the aching hits your heart again
Can you make a way to me again?

I don’t wanna talk about it
Baby it’s not something new
Troubled waters rise and fall but
I know we can make it through

Baby you just gotta bet, on me
Maybe you should take some time
To clear mind and think it over
Baby you just gotta bet, on me
Me and You
Me and You
Me and You
Track Name: The Hard Way
THE HARD WAY
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)

Everybody learns the hard way, baby
There’s no easy way, no if, buts, or maybes
When you’re paralyzed and your at your end
Grab a hold of me I will understand
Everybody learns the hard way baby

I know you’re fractured, the bones are broken
You have to reset it
You made mistakes, you lost your way
And now you regret it
I know you already know, that it takes time to grow

‘Cause everybody learns the hard way, baby
There’s no easy way, no if, buts, or maybes
When you’re paralyzed and your at your end
Grab a hold of me I will understand
Everybody learns the hard way baby

All I want to do is be here with you
With all your edges on display
All I want to do is be here with you
You’re not alone, no, not today

Even if you try
And you can’t get by, oh
I will be at your side, I’ll be at your side

You’re not alone, no, not today
Track Name: What You Need
WHAT YOU NEED
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)

When you can't pick up the pieces
And all you really need is
Someone to help you withstand
All the pain and grief that swallow
You up until you can't tow
This line where the sea meets the sand 

I'll be what you need when your are weak
I'll be what you need when you are weak

There are days when we are weary
And life just gets too heavy
The seconds seem to pass so slow
But what they say is really true love
Our wounds can really heal up
Though the scars will always show

I'll be what you need when your are weak
I'll be what you need when you are weak

I know it’s burning
But time will keep turning
Hang in there love, I know it’s unknown

I'll be what you need when your are weak
I'll be what you need when you are weak
Track Name: Remember Love
REMEMBER LOVE
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)
Jordan Brooke Hamlin, Here Comes Moses (ASCAP)

Faded souls let out there little sighs
The darkness lies no day resides
Nothing stirs, oh, the sun won’t turn

Passion dies, behind these idle bars
When holy wings are useless things
All valor gone, no swords are drawn

Ooh, remember love, remember love
No war’s out run, what’s done is done
Ooh, remember love, remember love,
What once was lost, oh can still be sought

Fires die the embers will not flame
The things we burn, all slowly fade
Into the ground, as we look around

Hurried hands will grasp at any crown
When hope is spent, songs of lament
Now leave our tongues, no war’s out run

Ooh, remember love, remember love
No war’s out run, what’s done is done
Ooh, remember love, remember love,
What once was lost, oh can still be sought

We wait on night to pass into day
As we cast our eyes on this sea of grey
We won’t lay down in early graves this time
There may be a day ahead
When man will bend to the night’s dark end
We won’t lay down in early graves this time.
(I hear it beating in your chest…)
Track Name: We Belong
WE BELONG
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)
Jordan Brooke Hamlin, Here Comes Moses (ASCAP)

I don’t understand how it all goes
How to make sense of all your woes
And i don’t really understand how to make you feel
Less weighed down

And I don’t really know why our hopes dissolve
How pain can make us lose our own resolve
And I don’t really understand what it all means
When the bad guys seem to get away clean

And I, will try, try my best
To hold, the line, ease your mind from distress

We belong to one another’s arms
We belong together tethered strong
We belong

Even when your day turns and stops in place
While everyone around you just keeps their pace
I will stand with you when your world won’t move
And keep your ground

As I’m losing my ground
I can hear a faint sound
Of you patiently singing out

Those three words you repeat (And I, will try, try my best)
You won’t give up on me (To hold, the line)
Building upon my frail beliefs (Ease your mind from distress)
Oh oh, no I’m not alone

We belong to one another’s arms
We belong together tethered strong
We belong
Track Name: Thread the Needle
WE CAN THREAD THE NEEDLE
Latifah Phillips, Moda Spira Publishing (SESAC)
Jordan Brooke Hamlin, Here Comes Moses (ASCAP)

We can thread, the needle, you and I
We can thread, the needle, you and I

Our feet are tracing now
A way we know so well
It wears me down
Here we go again
If not now, then when
Will we remember?
When the road dead ends
That’s when our hearts must bend

We can thread, the needle, you and I
We can thread, the needle, you and I

My eyes are tracing now
The lines I know so well
Around your brow
Now I see it bend
With that look you send
A sweet reminder
When the road dead ends
That’s when our hearts must bend

We can thread, the needle, you and I
We can thread, the needle, you and I
We can thread, the needle, you and I
We can thread, the needle, you and I
You and I
You and I
You and I
