Track Name: Moments Of Truth
Moments Of Truth
M.Hayden 2010

Moments of truth, as we ride the storm
Glimpses of peace taking shelter
Broken my song is calling yours
A beacon of hope in the dawn

We'd share these moments and my heart endures
We'd share these moments together
We'd share this lifetime and my hear endures
Hope shining through, in the dawn

Now I see you, as you stand before
Tears streaking through, the walls
The Olive branch sways with your hands in chords
Slowly we change like the sand

I wait here with you and my darkest truth
Flickers of calm in the morn
Washed of my hands and my coarse rebukes
Restores my soul forever
Track Name: Still Can Find Your Hope
Still Can Find Your Hope
M. Hayden 2010

Close the door,
start out on your morning
Answering, such a lofty call
Despite your wounds,
there's beauty in the sun rays
You feel the warmth,
the story you've retold

Until I burst,
'till my pride's defeated
Naked and standing
in weary skin and bones
An honest hand,
now reaching out and welcome
Is still more use
than all the mindless drones

Achieving destiny,
touching the Kingdom
Little you know,
you have found your road
And through the glass,
now growing clearer
Leaving the past,
to shed the dusty soles

As sunset fades,
to yet another morning
A guiding Hand,
to soothe a tired brow
Direct my thoughts
into the brightest daylight
Direct my paths,
through the silent storms
Track Name: Sometimes Things
Sometimes Things
M.Hayden 2011

You know, sometimes things,
Don't always turn out right
Or how you'd expect
How you'd expect from me

I'm just putting one foot,
One foot in front of the other,
keeping the wolves, from the front door

And are the pieces coming apart?
Are the pieces coming together?
Forever, is such a long, long time

I can hold my hand up
I can call out to you again
Could you just be a friend?

Such perfect timing
Such a dream come true,
For me, for you

What I'm looking for,
you just can't find,
I saw a beautiful space,
Just right outside

I checked for no standing
and the right times
'Till the inspector comes
And lays down a fine

There's people driving 'round
In circles all night
And no ones moving out
And there's nothing in sight

I checked for no standing
and the right times
'Till the inspector comes
And lays down a fine
Track Name: The Way It Is
The Way It Is:
M.Hayden December 2010

When I move on through the mornings
Feel the sunshine, breathe the air
Whispered voices on the radio
Flecks of color in your hair

Hear some speak in tongues of angels
With no thought of giving alms
I could wait until tomorrow
I could take another chance

Thinking more about forgiveness
Thinking less of bitterness
moving shadows in the windows
distant memories of you there

Thinking more about tomorrow
thinking less of yesterday
I could be a new creation
I could be a better friend

Don't stop, telling us the way it is
Don't stop, giving this away
Don't stop telling us to raise our chins
And you'll the the gray countenances changed

Hearing more of metal music
Hearing less of country tunes
Born and bred this from the 80's
And funk and Soul and Delta Blues

Whispered promise in the morning
Finger's part as we forget
Hear each prayer for you is carried
On the breezes through your hair

Thinking more about the summer
Thinking less of winterness
Thinking more about forgiveness
Thinking less of bitterness
