Blessed for the Journey Lyrics by Chris Good & Seth Hendricks / Music by Seth Hendricks Turn, from the things that dull and blind. Where moth and rust consume, and thieves run wild in your mind. When the trappings of your own life, have firmly taken hold. Well you can wander in the desert, but the blessing's for the one who comes back home. So hear the call, that stirs you restless in the night. Let it awake and move you onward, and in the morning light a new name may arise. And though you wrestled with the struggle, do not fear. For there may come a time amidst all of the suffering a new light will appear. May we walk with each other as we travel down this road. Joining hands as we cross to the unknown, wherever we may go. For we were blessed, we were blessed for the journey from the start. So claim the call upon your life and be set free. Free to heal and serve and wonder, into the person that you were meant to be. And though this body may be broken, we can still be made one. For we are here to be a light in this world, we shine on, thy kingdom come. May we walk with each other as we travel down this road. Joining hands as we cross to the unknown, wherever we may go. For we were blessed, we were blessed for the journey from the start. Joy when the sorrow aches when you feel alone, and you see no escape. Hope when the darkness falls, when your way is lost, and your strength is gone. Don't let your life be small, and let this grace carry you on. To live, to love, and to belong . You live, you love, and you belong. We live, we love and we belong.

Loveliness Lyrics by Chris Good & Seth Hendricks / Music by Seth Hendricks Well I was hoping I got this word to share to be spoken. And now I’m waiting. They say timing is everything but I know yes I know the right time has already passed me by. So I’ll sing this song cause it heals me this melody that you keep revealing. And so we dance along, step to the right I can see clearly. Step to the left, your shadow’s near me.      And we’ll carry the light as it drops into horizon, radiates and warms my soul. This I know. Loveliness, Loveliness You are loveliness. Well your heart is like an open door No keys or combinations no judgment waiting on the other side. Come in and rest awhile as we imagine possibilities remaining hopeful in a place and time we may never see. You and me creating a beauty we believe. In Loveliness, Loveliness You are loveliness. How can I hold you? With a word I try to grasp it, I don’t have all of the answers. How can I tell you? What I know to be true, yes I believe in you, so I sing.

Light Awakes Lyrics by Chris Good, Seth Hendricks & David Hupp / Music by Seth Hendricks As evening falls, the spirits speak in the rustling of the autumn leaves. The shadows lengthen and the light grows dim but the spark remains in the space within. All roads ahead leave some behind and memories the cold can’t hide. As winter tests each weary soul your love remains my only home. Follow, where the light awakes and out of the darkness, you will find your way. Each step I take breathes something new. When spring arrives she changes you. Like morning dew that longs to see the day become, the song that sings. Follow, where the light awakes and out of the darkness, you will find your way. Walk with hope for brighter days When August winds they fade, shine on. Leave and do not be afraid. The traveler still remains in your soul, so let go. Follow, where the light awakes and out of the darkness, you will find your way.

Tell Me Stories Lyrics by Chris Good / Music by Chris Good & Seth Hendricks Sunshine hits your face like the Goddess was aiming for you. I know that I would if I were her. I'd light it up to see each freckle, each eyelash and those worlds bursting in your eyes. Tell me stories, tell me your dreams I want to know everything. Tell me stories, tell me your dreams my heart's so full I can't help but sing. You've got that sparkle that brightens up every room, magnetic & warm in your glow. This precious life is sacred, your tender actions speak. You've helped make a believer out of me. Tell me stories, tell me your dreams I want to know everything. Tell me stories, tell me your dreams my heart's so full I can't help but sing. You threw moonbeams with your smile I almost lost, I almost lost my balance. Just one look, just one touch. Misty nights beneath the stars, I found home in you. Just one look, one touch I found home in you. Tell me stories, tell me your dreams I want to know everything. Tell me stories, tell me your dreams my heart's so full I can't help but sing.

It Gets Better Lyrics by Chris Good & Seth Hendricks / Music by Seth Hendricks Sometimes I wonder why I'm even here, would anyone notice if I disappeared. But I don't need to be noticed just want to leave it all behind. Seems like every day is an uphill climb a choice between bullies and living a lie. But these clenched fists don't protect me from the lonely nights. That's when I hear you say: Oh my love it’s gonna get better. It's gonna get better if I have anything to say about it. We both know what a cruel place this world can be but it’s gonna get better love. And I know it's often hard to see the light shining between you & me. Because I hide deep in the shadows of my pain and my fear sometimes I feel I can hardly breathe. That's when I hear you say: Oh my love it’s gonna get better. It's gonna get better if I have anything to say about it. We both know what a cruel place this world can be but it’s gonna get better love. But I take a deep breath, take the next step I get up each day, even when it's hard. I have dreams, I have passion, there's so much I wanna do. I try to sing the words, believe that they're true... Oh my love it’s gonna get better. It's gonna get better if I have anything to say about it. We both know what a cruel place this world can be but it’s gonna get better love.

Love Makes A Way Lyrics by Chris Good & Seth Hendricks / Music by Seth Hendricks How many trembling miles? How many steps from home? Yearning & terrified to be seen. What awaits? A land of promise or the walls of an empire? A cellblock or a sanctuary, finding sanctuary. 
Can you hear the angels sing? Can you hear the angels sing?
The angels sing? They're singing out 
​Love makes a way.
​Love makes a way, for us. To all the teachers, dreamers, believers in another way. Waging battles with weapons that heal, risking hope in spite of the fear. What awaits, through courageous eyes, in visions of peace? The strength to believe, the will to be free. Can you hear the angels sing? Can you hear the angels sing?
The angels sing? They're singing out 
​Love makes a way.
​Love makes a way, for us. 
May peace be the means to that which we seek ​Love makes a way.
​Love makes a way, for us.

Was It You Lyrics by Chris Good & Seth Hendricks / Music by Seth Hendricks Was it you just slippin' out the back door when you thought I wasn't home? Could you leave me in good conscience left to wander all alone? Wide awake and searching in the shadows all the places where we've been. But the walls aren't giving any answers and the silence never ends. So leave me with dreams that haunt me. These tears taste a melancholy sweet. And here in the darkest hour I'll find you even after everything is gone. I remember everything you taught me like the faintest scent in June. How the lilacs always seemed to follow when you walked into a room. So leave me with dreams that haunt me. These tears taste a melancholy sweet. And here in the darkest hour I'll find you even after everything is gone. So leave me with dreams that haunt me. These tears taste a melancholy sweet. And here in the darkest hour I'll find you. And when it seems you're lost you're there to guide me though. If in the end all there is left is love, yes love Even after everything is gone.

Seriously Lyrics by Chris Good & Seth Hendricks / Music by Seth Hendricks Why are we so afraid? Preaching fear, hate, judgment day. Every door that you close, is shutting out something. You got the whole wide world at your fingertips. Righteous confirmation with just one click. And while the circle is getting larger our worlds are getting smaller and smaller We can’t stand united if this house remains divided. Cause together we stand but we keep choosing to fall. Why are we so afraid, to rise from it all? We must be seriously confused to think we’ll all agree on exactly what to believe. Why can't we, all agree that we must be seriously confused? Why are we building up walls? Blaming one another making fools of us all. And while the shame game is getting louder we keep beating our chests, getting prouder and prouder. Paper thin solutions in a 3D reality. Black and white vision misses possibilities for a kaleidoscope. Colors bursting over the horizon. We can’t stand united if this house remains divided. Cause together we stand but we keep choosing to fall. Why do we build up these walls? We must be seriously confused to think we’ll all agree on exactly what to believe. Why can't we, all agree that we must be seriously confused? Need a little more hope, need a little more harmony need a little more love need a little humility.

Ezra’s Song Lyrics by Chris Good & Seth Hendricks / Music by Seth Hendricks On Monday you’re a firefighter, dressed in red you are the water-igniter, but don’t extinguish the fire that burns bright in you. On Tuesday you’re a movie star, on the big screen is where you are, be bold, strong and vulnerable too. On Wednesday from the sky comes a superhero, soaring so high everyone looks little to you. Just remember sometimes even heroes fall, nobody wants to feel small. But you don’t have to be anything. You don’t have to be anybody else. You don’t have to be anything more than you already are. On Thursday you’re a farmer, roll up the sleeves you are the gardener of the earth, soil, may you tend it with care. And by Friday you're a teacher, creating space going deeper and deeper Revealing the pathway to our dreams. Then Saturday comes an emergency you’re a doctor caring with compassion fearlessly. Every day brings something new, and whatever you choose know the beauty lies in you. But you don’t have to be anything. You don’t have to be anybody else. You don’t have to be anything more than you already are. On Sunday morning in the front row gospel choir singing I’ll fly away, hallelujah by and by the days will go. May the song you sing spring hope and overflow. But you don’t have to be anything. You don’t have to be anybody else. You don’t have to be anything more than you already are.

Moon & Stars Lyrics & music by Seth Hendricks When the lights in your life begin to dim, faded of their innocence and battered by the winds. They blow their circles of persuasion in your head. It’s a never-ending whirlwind that blows until you’re dead If darkness falls around you and you cannot find your way and the voices that led you there have nothing more to say, then the light will find you, and the stars will guide you away. And when the world turns to scorn you and the thorns begin to green and the weight you pack and carry now have nothing that you need. And while everyone is sleeping and you’re restless and awake alone you stand in anguish at Gethsemane you wait. If darkness falls around you and you cannot find your way and the voices that led you there have nothing more to say, then the light will find you, and the stars will guide you away.

Love Wins Lyrics & music by Seth Hendricks Oh love, thought that I would mention give it some attention right now tell myself that love oh love is gonna have to win. And I know it’s true thinking of you from the morning to the afternoon the evening when I’m tired still I feel inspired to say 365 ways, each and every day. Oh love, well I guess its gonna have to win. Cause I cannot help but let it in so my heart can start beating again oh love is gonna win. Well we can suppress or deny it, kick, scream, and fight it Shout it from a megaphone, cast every single stone But love, if you open up that door Then every war you face every turn this world takes Let love be your hearts refrain Be a voice that makes a change Let love be the answer. Oh love, well I guess its gonna have to win. Cause I cannot help but let it in so my heart can start beating again oh love is gonna win.

On The Other Side Lyrics by Chris Good & Seth Hendricks / Music by Chris Good & Seth Hendricks Ain't no light, like the light that shines from the darkness. Ain't no hope like the hope that sparks from despair. Ain't no flower like the flower that blooms in the desert. Ain't no love like the love that conquers fear. Ain't no song, like the song that sings from the silence. Ain't no dance, like the dance that awakens the soul. Ain't no rain, like the rain that quenches the thirsty. Ain't no sun, like the sun that bursts through the storm. Rock me, roll me as the days and hours go by, together side by side. Let me rock you, roll you We’re gonna make it through the night yes the morning’s coming on the other side. Ain't no peace like the peace that stands with the broken. Ain't no joy like the joy that overflows from the sadness. Ain't no life like the life that rises from the ashes. Ain't no dream like the dream that finally breaks free. Rock me, roll me as the days and hours go by, together side by side. Let me rock you, roll you We’re gonna make it through the night yes the morning’s coming on the other side. We are that spark, gonna light it up, shine through the dark gonna let it go, watch it grow, spread all around the world.
