Track Name: Grateful
So grateful I am
I’ve put my heart out
I’ve set my mind free
I will take this risk
No longer will my palms feel hollow
I gave you everything
I reached for your hand, and this is where we are now
For so long I’ve waited for this kind of trust to spark
For so long I’ve dealt with second chances
In front of my eyes
I witnessed a bridge form between corrupted promises
These pieces of my life, you’ve helped me put back together
Living to the fullest, all because of your love
We’ve built everything on these struggles
A foundation I can look up to
The lies and the cruelty of this world will never phase me
As long as your trust holds true

And everything happens for a reason
Good or bad
I will see through it all
Good or bad
It’s all meant to fall into place
You make me feel so fearless against this world
I thank you for this
You are the angel that pulled me out of the darkness
Track Name: Anchor
Marching forward, with the anchors I carry
With all of the weight on my shoulders
I’ve been asking myself, how can I keep moving on?
I’ve made it this far
There’s no way I’m looking back
I’m at the verge of losing grip
The dark clouds engulf my mind
It’s taking over my body
Shedding every blood and sweat
Just to make it through
I’ve crashed, and I’ve burned
I’ve seen it all
The wind has pushed everything at me all at once
An oppression, I will conquer through
These bruises and these wounds
Will remind me that I’m still alive
I swear, I will die trying. I swear I won’t give up
Let my death be the cause of this
I will take this to my grave
These storm of bullets, I’ll take in each and every one.
