Track Name: My Lullaby
You’d sing "you are my only sunshine”
as you'd gently rock me to sleep
I knew you’d never kid a kid when
you said that you would always be there for me
Growing up, it was only you and me at home
just us against the world
Sometimes when things were hard to understand
you’d ease my mind with this priceless pearl

You’d sing:

Rest your head - things will look better in the morning
Go to bed, tomorrow is another day

Verse 2
Years later, when I struck out on my own you
didn’t understand that it was my time
It was hard to tell you over the phone
that every little thing would turn out fine

Now today, it seems that I’m all grown up
with a wife and a child of my own
I’ll remember you when singing to my sunshine
a mother’s love is an unending song

I'll sing:

Rest your head - things will look better in the morning
Go to bed, tomorrow is another day

You’re my safe place
You’re my sweet song
You’re my lullaby
(My lullaby)
Track Name: Open Hands
Caterpillar stomach
waiting to explode
Promises dreamt of, to always
Have and to hold

It will feel so good to forget
So good to finally understand
Hopes will arise, at last justified
Greeted with soft open hands

A two way stop
a caution light
Proceed toward me
Put up a fight

It will feel so good to forget
So good to finally understand
Hopes will arise, at last justified
Greeted with soft open hands

Give me space
A chance to grow
Show me grace
so that I’ll know

God gave me to you
No second thoughts
No turning back and
wanting not

It will feel so good to forget
So good to finally understand
Hopes will arise, at last justified
Greeted with soft open hands

It will feel so good to forget
So good to finally understand
Hopes will arise, at last justified
Greeted with soft open hands

Open hands
Open hands
Track Name: Tonight (only You)
Tonight we come
We lay it all down
Faces to the ground
We give it all to You

We live and die
To build Your temple
To be one
And to be one with You

Tonight
There’s only You tonight
Tonight
Only You are God
Tonight
Our lives are on your altar, Jesus
Tonight
Tonight and for eternity together (together)

Lives on the altar
We lay them down
Lives on the altar
We lay them down
Lives on the altar
We lay them down
Lives on the altar
We lay them down

Tonight
There’s only You tonight
Tonight
Only You are God
Tonight
Our lives are on your altar, Jesus
Tonight
Tonight and for eternity together (together)

Tonight
There’s only You tonight
Tonight
Only You are God
Tonight
Our lives are on your altar, Jesus
Tonight
Tonight and for eternity together (together)
