Track Name: Dirty Little Secret
Dirty Little Secret
Ric Sandler
Geoff Thurman

I had a dirty little secret
There was a hole in my heart
Love flowed but I just couldn’t keep it
It slowly tore me apart

I hid my dirty little secret
Scared that someone might see
I cried though I just couldn’t speak it
Take this secret from me

Then I went down down down to the river of life
I went to drown drown drown in the river of life

I threw my dirty little secret
As far as these eyes could see
I knew that I would never need it
It had no hold over me

When I went down down down to the river of life
I went to drown drown drown in the river of life

To watch this water fill my wonder
Throw me about and pull me under
Turn me loose and let me fly
I’ll get what I need to survive from the river of life

I had a dirty little secret

Then I went down down down to the river of life
I went to drown drown drown in the river of life
I’m going down down down to the river of life
I’m gonna drown drown drown in the river of life
Track Name: Tunnel
Tunnel
Geoff Thurman

It’s like I’m walking through this tunnel
I am stumbling in the dark
Feeling the hallways echo voices
Watching my tears fall on the walls

Hearing me crying in the distance
It could be possible to flee
I must run rip shot through this rock face
Yes I will throw weapons down

Face down in the blood of those who stood against you
To face down the fear that chains this pain

I touch a presence too familiar
As real as the dagger in my soul
Rising up within me is the haunting in my spirit
Ready to lash out in rage

I’m turned to face my physician
I’m forced to face what I have done
I just want to lunge at you in anger
Feel what you’ve put me through

Face down in the blood of those who lost their virtue
To face down the very lies that plague my soul
Stand face to face to face the truth of my crimes
Breathe in to guard my free will now

But I don’t
I am filled with love beyond overwhelming odds
Calm cries out
And I raise the rebel yell

It’s like my surgery’s beginning
But I struggle to wake myself
Trying to shake this anesthesia
Shake this anesthesia

What does it matter if you understand me
I’m bathed in the flow of him who bled before me
I’m filled with peace that washes over

It’s like I’m walking through this tunnel
Where the wheels have fallen off
And I am sick of this affliction
Sick of this affliction
Track Name: Touch Your Body
Touch Your Body
Geoff Thurman

I wanna touch your body
I wanna take you higher
I feel you getting colder
So I wanna start a fire
I wanna touch your body
I wanna watch your soul stir
So I wanna start a fire

I’ve seen you shuffle through the madness
I’ve felt you fall under the weight
I’ve heard cry for resolution
Pray for a solution
Calming the confusion

You want two hands to bring you mercy
You need real love to see you through
I want to dry away the tears
Quiet all your fears
Let me make it clear

I wanna touch your body
I wanna take you higher
I feel you getting colder
So I wanna start a fire
I wanna touch your body
I wanna watch your soul stir
So I wanna start a fire

I’d love to spend a moment talking
Hold hands while walking in the rain
I want to help you build your schemes
Listen to your dreams
As simple as it seems

Would you like too know some pleasure
’Cause I want to take away the pain
Lay you in a field of clover
So you can discover
Over and over

I wanna touch your body
I wanna take you higher
I feel you getting colder
So I wanna start a fire
I wanna touch your body
I wanna watch your soul stir
So I wanna start a fire

Let me take you to different place
Another time and space
It would please me so to see a smile shine upon your face


I wanna touch your body
I wanna take you higher
I feel you getting colder
So I wanna start a fire
I wanna touch your body
I wanna watch your soul stir
So I wanna start a fire
Track Name: To See Her Smile
To See Her Smile
Laurie Pickens
Geoff Thurman

Hazel eyes form a veiled disguise
To hide what's really there
Deep inside hear her silent cries
For love beyond compare

How my heart is drawn to need her
How she makes me feel alive

To see her smile
To get a taste
Of the sweetest wine
Found in her embrace
To see her smile
To watch her face
Turn from grey to glow
All I know
Is I want to see her smile

Velvet skin although farther in
There's a child that needs a friend
Hair of darkest brown is her golden crown
I want to hold her to the very end

I would lay me down to free her
Without a moment of regret

To see her smile
To get a taste
Of the sweetest wine
Found in her embrace
To see her smile
To watch her face
Turn from grey to glow
All I know

She’s a rock inside this prison
Carving out a ray of hope for those in need
Though she begs for him to listen
He turns to stone
Not noticing her plea
See her crawl back in her cage and wait for me

I’ve got to see her smile
Watch her face
Turn from grey to glow
All I know
Is I want to see her smile
She’s my baby and I’ve got to see her smile
I’ve got to see her smile
I’ve got to see her
Track Name: Step Up
Step Up
Michael Puryear/Geoff Thurman

Seen you stumble
Watched you fall
Stand back up and shake it off
Learned that life is sometimes hard
And this life makes you who you are

I know you know you’re strong
I know you're right where you belong

Step up
Break through
This moment in time is ready for you
No doubt
No fear
Believe in yourself ‘cause that’s why you're here
You’ve waited in the wings long enough
Step up

The lights are on
It’s center stage
This is when you'll turn the page
You'll hit the mark
You'll overcome
This day you'll prove that you're the one

To stand head high and face the test
Dig down deep and do your best

Step up
Break through
This moment in time is ready for you
No doubt
No fear
Believe in yourself ‘cause that’s why you're here
You’ve waited in the wings long enough
Step up
Track Name: Right Here And Now
Right Here And Now
Geoff Thurman

Hanging by threads to the edge of my world
Staring my soul in the face
Afraid to be more than a face in the crowd
Vanishing without a trace

But now is the time for my dreams to take flight
And carry me far from this place in the night

Right here and now
I’m headed for tomorrow
I’ll rise or fall
On all that I believe
And I can see
The road to my horizon coming clear
Right here and now

Here at the cliff of the greatest unknown
Knowing I’ve got to let go
Longing a taste of the nectar of kings
Believing I’ll fly on my own

Finally a chance to reach out for that star
And hold to the love that has brought me this far

Right here and now
I’m headed for tomorrow
I’ll rise or fall
On all that I believe
And I can see
The road to my horizon coming clear
Right here and now

I just want to take in this minute
And everything happening in it
The future will begin for me right here and now
Take hold of my forever

Right here and now
I’m headed for tomorrow
I’ll rise
I will fall
On all that I believe
And I can see
The road to my horizon coming clear
Right here and now
Track Name: Long Awaited One
Long Awaited One
Geoff Thurman

Long awaited one
You brought us such surprise
Now that you are gone
The sorrow fills my eyes
There’s an empty void
Where there was space for you
Now I will carry on
And do what I must do

It may take some time for me to find the sun
My long awaited one

Long awaited one
My mind is bathed in grief
The wound inside my soul
Is deep beyond belief
I will find the words
And make time to cry
And remember when
You gave me wings to fly

If I lose my way my world may fall undone
But I must face my fear if I’m to overcome
Long awaited one

Just to look into your eyes
Hear your laughter split the skies
Make the world a safer place for you to run
Long awaited one

Long awaited one
You are not far away
I will come to you
That long awaited day
I will call your name
And I will touch your face
The pain will fade away
Without the smallest trace

We will race against the setting of the sun
We will wait and watch what all our dreams become
We will find again our lives have just begun
Long awaited one
