1. ONE MINUTE (3:08)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

Think about the quietness

And passion that we share

Often times we find it all

Laced within the air

 

Forget about all the others

Send them on their way

Save your pearls all for me

No matter what they say

 

Give me just one minute

You say it isn't clear

Just one minute

Because your heart landed here

 

Bring around to my door

Ways we can pretend

This dance upon the warmest shore

Shall not come to end

 

Give me just one minute

You say it isn't clear

Just one minute

Because your heart landed here

 

Think about the quietness

And passion that we share

Often times we find it all

Laced within the air

2. THE ROAD LESS TAKEN (4: 16)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo


If you toss a coin

Up in the air

And you watch it land

Would you stop and stare

The road I travel

Lonely eyes could see

As they unravel

What the chance would be

 

Where I stood the ground was shaking

I've been dragged from here to there

I was on the road less taken

And found you there

 

If you look around

At the shifting sand

And you catch a grain

In the palm of your hand

No two are alike

You'll come to see

No two are the same

Only you and me

 

Where I stood the ground was shaking

I've been dragged from here to there

I was on the road less taken

And found you there

 

If you only had

Just one request

And it was your last

Would it be your best

The road I travel

Lonely eyes coud see

As they unravel

What the chance would be

 

Where I stood the ground was shaking

I've been dragged from here to there

I was on the road less taken

And found you there

3. FOR CERTAIN (4:00)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

The weather has taken a turn

I can't really define

But inside the candle will burn

Maybe its just a sign

Under the light so dim

I stare at the note you left

You're never the type to stay

Maybe it's for the best

 

Nothing lasts forever

For certain come what may

The winds of change bring good gifts

But sometimes takes them away

 

I sit and wait for your call

Its just a matter of time

The only way that I can see

To keep myself in line

 

Nothing lasts forever

For certain come what may

The winds of change bring good gifts

But sometimes takes them away

4. THE SEED OF DOUBT (4:06)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

So you've given up that life

It ain't easy to do

You keep running back

Just can't follow through

But I'll show you the way to find

I'll be standing by your side

And I'll pick you up

Over and over again

 

So baby please

That look in your eye

The seed of doubt

Tell it goodbye

So baby please

That look in your eye

Its been there before

Don't believe it anymore

 

So you're walking the hard line

You think you're by yourself

It's always a rough time

Always something else

But I'll show you the way to find

I'll be standing by your side

And I'll pick you up

Over and over again

 

So baby please

That look in your eye

The seed of doubt

Tell it goodbye

So baby please

That look in your eye

Its been there before

Don't believe it anymore

5. JUST SO YOU KNOW (3:41)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

Did I turn your head around when I called

You were walking in the crowd

Did you see me standing there all alone

I will find my way on my own

 

Just so you know

I am stronger than you think, oh

Stronger than you know

Just so you know

This ship you can not sink, oh

Stronger than you think

 

Will you offer me a place in your heart

There I wish I could remain

Is it me the one who needs to break apart

I pretend that I am someone

 

Just so you know

I am stronger than you think, oh

Stronger than you know

Just so you know

This ship you can not sink, oh

Stronger than you think

 

When I look upon myself in the mirror

There are lines that tell the story

Do you often think that I'm

Just a memory in your mind

Just a relic lost in time

To be forgotten

 

Just so you know

I am stronger than you think, oh

Stronger than you know

Just so you know

This ship you can not sink, oh

Stronger than you think

6. DUSTY TRAIN (3:32)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

I looked hard and I tried

To find peace in my soul

And I wondered if I

Should give up on it all

I tried to find

The reason why

I walk this lonely road

 

Even if you throw your stones

I will ride that Dusty Train

Even if you break my bones

I will ride that Dusty Train

You can bring your sticks and stones

I will ride that Dusty Train

 

I broke down and I cried

All my tears fell like rain

With my back to the wall

And nothing left to gain

I turned around

And left behind

The sorrows in my way

 

Even if you throw your stones

I will ride that Dusty Train

Even if you break my bones

I will ride that Dusty Train

You can bring your sticks and stones

I will ride that Dusty Train

7. OH DARLING (3:42)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

They said it wouldn't work

And they told you, you were dreaming

To put it all aside

What were you thinking

 

But the moon is on the rise and

The stars are all aligning

There's faith in their timing

 

Oh Darling

The night is young

Oh Darling

It's just begun

You'll be shinning now

Your time has come

 

You held in all the pain

That didn't have to be

And what was their gain

That no one else could see

 

But the moon is on the rise and

The stars are all aligning

There's faith in their timing

 

Oh Darling

The night is young

Oh Darling

It's just begun

You'll be shinning now

Your time has come

8. DON'T THINK (2:40)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

Don't think you can leave me

And don't think it's gonna do you any good

I don't think you believe me

But you should

 

If I had to

I would have tried

To think about it more

In an instant

Life can change

And what is it all for

There are some things

That come around

And just can't be explained

And they show up

Un-announced

Who am I to blame

 

Don't think you can leave me

And don't think it's gonna do you any good

I don't think you believe me

But you should

 

You were headed

A different way

And I was at a loss

Who would ever guess

That life would change

And that our paths would cross

 

Don't think you can leave me

And don't think it's gonna do you any good

I don't think you believe me

But you should

9. THIS STATE OF LOVE (3:29)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

This state of love

Has got highs and lows

And it comes and goes

Like a river

 

This state of love

The truth be told

Its like finding gold

Only better

 

This state of love

It can be seen

Either really nice or mean

As it tears you

Up inside

 

You can't hide

From where it reaches

You can't say

Where it may go

I believe

It's all we need

This state of love

 

This state of love

And feelings that we get

When there's deadlines to be met

All the time

 

This state of love

Is like nothing else

As it sits upon the shelf

Waiting to be heard

 

This state of love

Is calling out your name

There is so much to be gained

If you listen

 

You can't hide

From where it reaches

You can't say

Where it may go

I believe

It's all we need

This state of love

10. STAY (3:02)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

Here we are where we belong

Everybody gets it wrong

I have enough for two

Some for me and some for you

 

We shall reap what we sow

Turn the lights down very low

Tell me now and hold me tight

Keep me safe till morning's light

 

Stay until

My heart beats so soft and still

And know that I always will

I will always be yours

 

I love you now and I love you when

The strands turn white, until the end

Even if our world should fall

I'll be the one to catch it all

 

Stay until

My heart beats so soft and still

And know that I always will

I will always be yours

 

Bring me where they can not find

To a place they've left behind

There upon the chosen path

We shall stay and we shall last

 

Stay until

My heart beats so soft and still

And know that I always will

I will always be yours

11. THE GREAT ARTIST (3:28)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

The Greatest Artist it is said

Paints his picture in the sky

On his easel the sun will set

With clouds rolling by

 

It takes my breath away

Takes my breath away

 

The Greatest Artist of them all

Strokes the brush and finds the light

Soft colors ... they shall fall

Upon his canvas they sit

 

It takes my breath away

Takes my breath away

 

The Greatest Artist there can be

Sits high upon the throne

In every sunset that we see

His talent will be known

 

It takes my breath away

Takes my breath away

12. SIT BY THE RIVER (3:26)

Ann Paul, Andrew Carillo

 

Come with me now let us sit by the river

Watch all our fears float away

I'll sing you a song full of life and deliver

Wisdom and words for the day

 

Down by the River

Time slips away

It hushes the sound

The wind and the worry

See on the surface

Its clear to the end

Down by the river

Your soul will mend

 

Walk from the world, pause and be given

Footsteps so light and free

Look to be kind when poor hearts are bleeding

And carried out to the sea

 

Down by the River

Time slips away

It hushes the sound

The wind and the worry

See on the surface

Its clear to the end

Down by the river

Your soul will mend

 

Come with me now let us sit by the river

Watch all our fears float away

Come with me now let us sit by the river

Watch all our fears float away

Halleluiah, Halleluiah
