1. Run Wild [feat. Andy Mineo]
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Matt Hales, Tedd Tjornhom, Andy Mineo

Are the walls to lock you in or to keep others away
And if the doors were to be opened would you leave or would you stay
The comfort of your misery you cherish dearly, you cherish dearly
And you haven't started dreaming ‘cause you’re still fast asleep, you’re fast asleep

But don't you want to
Run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me

You’re a lion full of power who forgot how to roar
You’re an eagle full of beauty but you can’t seem to soar
Will you return to the garden where you were first made whole
Will you turn to the one who can liberate your soul

Don't you want to 
Run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me
Run wild, live free
Love strong

To every soul locked in a cage
In the prison of your past mistakes
No, there's no time left to waste
Yeah, you can make your great escape
We’re made to run wild, run wild, run wild
We’re made to run wild, run wild, run wild

Run forest, all depends what direction
Some people run from fear, some from their own reflection
Some people run their mouth, some people run their house
Ruling with the heart of a tyrant
Some people run their block, bust shots with a 4-4-5 and
That’s the environment, how we were raised
Living like lions but trapped in a cage
Back to a imago day with the blood of a king and the heart of a slave
Don’t you wanna run

And if your soul’s locked in a cage
You can make your great escape
We’re made to run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me

3. Fix My Eyes
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Seth Mosley

Hit rewind,click delete
Stand face to face with the younger me
All of the mistakes
All of the heartbreak
Here's what I’d do differently, I’d

Love like I'm not scared
Give when it’s not fair
Live life for another
Take time for a brother
Fight for the weak ones
Speak out for freedom
Find faith in the battle
Stand tall but above it all
Fix my eyes on You
On You

I learned the lines and talked the talk
Written by: Everybody knows it, everybody knows it
But the road less traveled is hard to walk
Written by: Everybody knows it, everybody knows
It takes a soldier
Who knows his orders
To walk the walk I'm supposed to walk, and

The things of earth are dimming
In the light of Your glory and grace
I'll set my sights upon Heaven
I'm fixing my eyes on You, on You
I'm fixing my eyes
on You, on You
I'm fixing my eyes

4. To The Dreamers
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Matt Hales

We're beat up but won’t be broken
Lonesome but always searching
Homesick but nobody’s heading home soon
Keep on, keeping on, keeping on
Long days and too many short nights
And wrong ways that almost felt right
Lovesick but nobody’s holding you
Keep on, keeping on, keeping on
So sing along, sing along, sing along... Yeah

To the dreamers
Wide-eyed believers
Hanging onto hope by a thread
To the soulful
Heart open hopeful
Keep on charging ahead
‘Cause, when you feel it, once you see it, and you breathe it
It’s unforgettable
When you know it, once you know it, and you hold it
It’s unforgettable

God knows you question your courage
And some days I can’t walk for stumbling
If we could only see what we’re becoming
So keep on, keeping on, keeping on
And sing along, sing along, sing along... Yeah

I was wondering and I was wandering
So down and out, I was lost not found
History said, someone said, that you could never exist
But then a whisper, sort of a kiss
Came to me in all of a sudden like a dream, a fantasy
That day didn’t feel quite real
You took a half dead soul and You made me believe
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe

5. Shoulders
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Ben Glover, Tedd Tjornhom

When confusion's my companion
And despair holds me for ransom
I will feel no fear
I know that You are near
When I'm caught deep in the valley
With chaos for my company
I'll find my comfort here
‘Cause I know that You are near

My help comes from You
You're right here, pulling me through
You carry my weakness, my sickness, my brokenness all on Your shoulders
Your shoulders
My help comes from You
You are my rest, my rescue
I don't have to see to believe that You're lifting me up on Your shoulders
Your shoulders

You mend what once was shattered
And You turn my tears to laughter
Your forgiveness is my fortress
Oh Your mercy is relentless

My help is from You
Don't have to see it to believe it
My help is from you
Don't have to see it, ‘cause I know, ‘cause I know it's true

6. Priceless
Written by: Luke Smallmone, Joel Smallbone, Seth Mosley, Tedd Tjornhom, Ben Backus

Mirror mirror
Mirror on the wall
Telling those lies
Pointing out your flaws
That isn’t who you are
That isn’t who you are
It might be hard to hear

But let me tell you dear
If you could see what I can see
I know you would believe
That isn’t who you are
There’s more to who you are

So when it's late
Your wide awake
Too much to take
Don’t you dare forget
That in the pain
You can be brave
I’ve got to say

I see you dressed in white
Every wrong made right
I see a rose in bloom
At the sight of you
O so priceless
Irreplaceable
Unmistakable
Inspirational
Darling it’s beautiful
I see it all in you
O so priceless

No matter what you’ve heard
This is what you’re worth
More than all the money all the diamonds & pearls
Oh this is who you are
Yeah this is who you are

So when it's late
Your wide awake
Too much to take
Don’t you dare forget
That in the pain
You can be brave
Hear me say

CHORUS

Sisters
We can start again
Give honor till the end
Love we can start again
Brothers
We can start again
Give honor till the end
Yeah we can start again

7. No Turning Back
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Seth Mosley

I used to be a beggar
Down on calloused knees
Till I got an invitation
Into the courts of the King
I’m movin’ on,
I’m movin’ on
I’m movin’ on, keep moving
I’m movin’ on,
I’m movin’ on
I’m movin’ on
You gave me my freedom
Now I'm free indeed

I'm marching out of the doubt into trust
Out of the me into us
No turning back, no turning back
No turning back
I’m falling head over heels into love
Leaving regret in the dust
No turning back, no turning back
No turning
No turning back, no

And If I’m caught in the crossfire
I will stand my ground
And even if I were to lose my life
Your arms are where I’ll be found

I used to be a beggar
Now I’m free indeed
Out of the doubt into trust
Out of the me into us
No turning back, no turning back
No turning

No turning back, oh, oh no

8. Without You (feat. Courtney)
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Matt Hales, Blake Kanicka, Benjamin Backus, Mark Campbell, Timmy Jones, Stephen Lynch

What do you do when you don’t get better
Strong arms get too, get too weak to hold her
Oh God, give me just enough strength to make it through
Sleepless, this madness is walking me out to the ledge
And stands there beside me, shivering out on the edge
And oh God all I, all I ask is a little relief, just a moment of peace

I don’t want to live without you
I’m not ready to live without you
So let’s dance a little, laugh a little, hope a little more
‘Cause I don’t want to leave without you, without you

This thorn in my side, though it cuts and stings me
Has opened these eyes, I’ve never seen so clearly
And oh God, I thank You, ‘cause You bring me to my knees
Back on my knees

I heard a voice from the other side singing
Hold fast, love lasts
As winter turns into summertime singing
Hold fast, love lasts
I heard a voice from the other side singing

Hold fast, love lasts
As winter turns into summertime singing
Hold fast

So let’s dance a little, laugh a little, and hope a little more
Yes, let’s dance a little, laugh a little, and hope a little more
‘Cause I don’t want to leave without you
No, I don’t wanna live without you, without you

9. Long Live
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Seth Mosley, Blair Daly

If you’re playing that drum but you got no rhythm
If you’re a little out of key but you’re always singing
If you’re so carefree but so not careless
Such a wreck, but ain't love wreck-less
If you’re listening I hope you hear this

Long live the young at heart
You know who you are
With your spirit burning
Take a risk and take a chance
Carry on
Long live the soul set free
Don't be afraid to dream
While the world’s still turning
Every moment, make it happen
With two left feet
Keep on dancing
Beat by beat
Breath by breath
Walking hand in hand
Step by step

With drop of faith and childlike wonder
You can weather the lighting, you can brave the thunder
No road map, but keep on running
No parachute, but keep on jumping
Oh, I think you might be onto something

Beat by beat
Breath by breath
Walking hand in hand
Step by step
Here and now
Day by day
Won’t let this memory slip away

10. Ceasefire
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Seth Mosley, Tedd Tjornhom

How will we save a life pointing fingers?
How can we end the fight this way?
When blame is the truth we’re preaching
And lies are what we’re believing
No one ever wins when the goal is to settle the score

ONE BY ONE WE WILL CALL FOR A CEASE FIRE
ONE BY ONE WE WILL FIGHT FOR A BETTER END
ONE BY ONE WE CAN REWRITE THE HEADLINES
STANDING SIDE BY SIDE
ONE BY ONE LOVE IS BUILDING AN EMPIRE
ONE BY ONE REACHING OUT TO OUR ENEMIES
ONE BY ONE WE WILL MAKE IT TO THE FINISH LINE
STANDING SIDE BY SIDE, CEASEFIRE

I will be the first to say I’m far from perfect
Grace was made for those who don’t deserve it
So easy to cast the first stone,
But harder to search your own soul
No one ever wins when the goal is to settle the score

Teach us how to live humbly
Love unconditionally
Transform our hurts into hope
Grant us your peace

11. Steady
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Ben Glover,Tedd Tjornhom

You’re my true north when I’m headed south
My constant solid ground
You are my lantern in the night
When I’m twisted up and shaken
You’re the one I put my faith in
Yeah, you’re the reason I survive

You keep me steady when the sky is falling
And I’ll keep steady after You
I’ll carry on when my strength is failing
Take heart ‘cause You’re with me
So let the stars drop, whatever comes
I’ll be ready, You keep me steady
You keep me steady

You’re a river, You cover me
When the bombs fall, You’re the cavalry
Somehow You’re always standing right by my side
So no matter what I will be facing
I will not be over-taken
And You are the only reason why

You’re my hiding place, my home
And fear cannot invade these four walls
I need You near, I need You here

12. Already Home
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Matt Hales

Walking through a wasteland
You better keep your head down
Oh, you never raise your eyes
Oh, you never realize
Between the moon rise and the sunset
The answer's out there somewhere
If we were only listening
If we were only listening
The skies would sing

You don't have to be broken
To see there's magic in a shooting star
When you’re lost and you’re lonesome
Let the heavens show you who you are
Look up and you'll know
That you are already home
Already home

There's something in me calling
Across the rocks without water
It's telling me to hurry back
Oh, you better hurry back
To where the moonrise meets the sunset
You'll know it when you find it
Now that you are listening
Now you're really listening
The skies will sing

Up into the sky without a single fear
As everything that held me down disappears
Higher and higher and higher
I'm ten miles tall
I see it all

Look up and you'll know
You are already home
Look up and you'll know
You are already home
Look up and you'll know
You are already home
Won’t you look up into the sky
And see that you’re already
That you’re already home
That you’re already home
Look up into the heavens
And won’t you see that you are
And won’t you see that you are
You are already home
Already home

13. This Is Love
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Brian Howes, Tedd Tjornhom

It was like a movie
When I first met you
The moment moved me
I still remember
Your soul of beauty
It stole me away, away
Richer or poorer
Better or worse
Could we be together
Could we make it work
If love is patient
And if love is kind
Oh God, give me a sign

You've got me thinking
This is love, this is love, this is love that I’m feeling
This is love, this is love, this is love I believe it
I’ll kiss you only
Darling, I promise
To hold you gently
And still be the strongest
I’m yours completely
No matter what comes our way
I’ll love you till the end of my days
Till the end of my days

Could've never imagined
We’d find each other
A classic romantic
Of unlikely lovers
Some kind of magic
How two can turn into one, to one

For rich or poor
Better or worse
We’ll be together
Yeah, we’ll make it work
Love is patient
I know love is kind
Thank God I saw the sign

Run, run, run, run with me
As one, one, one, we will dream
Of a beautiful love mystery
So run, run, run, run with me

14. Wholehearted
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Matt Hales

Look how far we've come
Look where we started from
Best thing about it is you know we've only just begun
They say life's a dance
10% circumstance
But what great adventure ever plays out just the way you planned it

We'll fly intothe turbulence
No telling where we're gonna land
Isn’t that just part of this romance

So when I'm stuck out in the cold
Let me be warmhearted
When it weighs too much to hold
Let me be lighthearted
When all I have is not enough
Won't be brokenhearted
‘Cause you taught me how to love, to live, to learn, to live whole hearted
Whole, whole hearted

Should we take the easy life
Should we take the smoother ride
No need to ask, I see the answer written in your eyes

So sail the ship onto the sand
No telling where we're gonna land
Oh that’s just part of our romance

When I'm stuck out in the cold
Let me be warmhearted
When it weighs too much to hold
Let me be lighthearted
When all I have is not enough
Won't be brokenhearted
‘Cause you taught me how to love, to live, to learn, to love, to live wholehearted
Whole, whole hearted

When you love somebody, when you love somebody
Whole, whole hearted

On and on and on we'll go
Into our lives, through the unknown
On and on and on we'll fly
Write the legend of our lives
On and on and on we'll fight
For every day and every night
The greatest stories ever told
Are written with a heart that's whole

So when I'm stuck out in the cold
Let me be warmhearted
When it weighs too much to hold
Let me be lighthearted

When you love somebody, when you love somebody
Live whole hearted, whole hearted, whole, whole hearted
Well, you taught me how to love, to live, to learn, to live whole hearted

15. Matter
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Seth Mosley

All of the dreams that haven't come true
And all of the hurt that happened to you
It matters, I hope you know it matters
You felt the pain of a bitter defeat
Where the weight of the grief is more bitter than sweet
It matters, I'm telling you it matters

To the one who spoke and set the sun ablaze
To the one who stopped the storm and walked the waves
To the one who took the tree so He could say
You matter, I hope you know you matter

I know it's not easy, not saying it's fair
But close as a prayer somebody cares
You're a treasure, don't you know you're treasured
So hold your head high, wait for the dawn
Keep hanging on, your sadness will turn into laughter
Watch it turn into laughter, yeah

Let the water spill from your eyes
Let it wash the wounds of those lies
Oh, let the water spill from your eyes
All that you are, all that you’ll be
Someone put the beat in your heart so that you’ll see
You matter

16. It's Not Over Yet (The Encore)
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Ben Glover, Tedd Tjornhom, Kyle Rictor

They are inside your head
You got a voice that says
You won't get past this one
You won’t win your freedom
It’s like a constant war
And you wanna settle that score
But you’re bruised and beaten
And you feel defeated

This goes out to the heaviest hearts

Oh, to everyone who’s hit their limit
It's not over yet, it's not over yet
And even when you think you’re finished
It's not over yet, it's not over yet
Keep on fighting
Out of the dark, into the light, it’s not over
Hope is rising
Never give in, never give up, it’s not over
Yet, whoa, yet, whoa

Game, set, match
Time to put it in your past
Feel the winter leaving
It’s redemption season
Long live the young at heart
Cheers to a brand new start
We’re revived and breathing
To live a life of freedom

Life is a race we run
So run till the race is won
Don’t you ever give up
No, no never give up
Life is a race we run
So run till the race is won
Don’t you ever give up
We will never give up

17. O God Forgive Us
Written by: Luke Smallbone, Joel Smallbone, Seth Mosley

We’ve prayed the prayer with no reply
Words float off into the night
Couldn’t cut our doubt with the sharpest knife
Oh, oh God forgive us
Silence isn’t comfortable
We want drive through peace and instant hope
Our shallow faith it has left us broke

Oh, oh God forgive us
Oh, oh God forgive us
A slave to our uncertainty
Help us with our unbelief
Oh God forgive us

Young and old, black and white
We’re rich and poor, there’s no divide
Hear the mighty, hear the powerless, singing

With our white flag sailing in the night
Eyes pointed to the sky
Hands up and open wide, open wide
