Track Name: My Hat's Off to Risk
I never thought it'd be that sucker punch unto my heart that would get me.
A side step and a pirouette go graceful and undetected, did ya see? Oh did you see it coming?

And all I really wanted was just to see your face in person. Then an unexpected lean in close to your face, I felt your breath on my skin, a kiss... I fell for you! I fell for you.

I never thought i'd see this jaded soul give you his whole heart so liberally. And although I found it strange that one awesome night with you would leave him dazed.
My hat's off all to "risk", without it i'd still be a lonely pawn in a game of chess. Be rest assured you see you've flipped my world upside right and now it's plain to see it was meant to be... was meant to be.

And all I really wanted was just to see your face in person. Then an unexpected lean in close to your face, I felt your breath on my skin, a kiss... I fell for you! I fell for you. The stars shine through on a love that's true.
Track Name: An Anthem for the Night
What can I say about the one who’s shown me His love through all I've ever done.
I swear that I can never be the man to be even though there’s been so many of you who all believed.
I’m thinking that I will never change. Some things go undone and always stay the same
Pinned onto the wall of my jaded heart. Letting go of the lost is always a good start.
I always knew that this was just a test. I’ve failed it once but now I’ll do my best.
If you've ever felt any sympathy just know I’ve held it close and one day you will see that
I am still in full control even though sometimes I just let it go.
Don’t give up on me ‘cause I will rule the flesh. I haven’t given in, I still contain the best.

[chorus]
And there are days when I don’t feel the same. I Look into the mirror and realized I have changed… if you knew me before those times you’d understand my stance and you’d never question why?


[verse 2]
I swear that I could never understand just what went wrong with my fool proof plan.
Leave it up to me and I will always fail but the one who dwells in me will show that he prevails.
Tick tock… the time will surely come when my days are up and then my life is done.
Give another chance and let me live again, In another given world I’ll show you who I am.
The angel came and sang me a new song with his wings being plucked it never sounded wrong.
I felt it running through the veins of my soul. An anthem for the night and this is how it goes…
Whoa oh oh ooh whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh ooh whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh ooh whoa oh oh oh whoa ooh
Whoa oh oh ooh whoa oh oh
Track Name: They Cheer Us On
Bartender make it two,
a drink for her and I.
I wanna keep the coast
of words sang through the night.
A clever witty quip,
a smile beams from her face.
We love, we lose, we stroll
and end up in this place, yeah
and here we are again.

Remember those red glasses that
were placed upon my crooked nose?
A picture and a laugh that came;
the night in retrospect has shown
we could rock together,
we could be the ones
perfect for each other
and full of love.
Let's give it a chance.

Your voice can echo through
the void inside my heart.
The sound of a crowded room
just waiting for our start...

They cheer us on!
