Track Name: Morning Apology
Morning Apology
words and music by Angela Sheik

For three long days
I have not talked to you
I have avoided you
For three long days.

For three long days
I have not met your eyes,
said hellos or good-byes
for three long days.

But here you come at 5am
to my side of the bed
and say the words we haven't said
for three long days.

"I'm sorry..."
Track Name: Irony
Irony
words and music by Angela Sheik

You here saving me
what irrationality, what folly.
You here chasing me
borderline obscene, absurdity.

Don't you know what it says of one who'd love a weakling? Could that mean that you are capable of breaking all these harmful, lazy habits I'm so happy making?

Have you seen me on the street?
Have you seen the way I treat my fellow man?
Colder than an icicle I am, I am.
Have you heard my secret thoughts?
Heard the way I scoff at those I call my friends?
Counted all my calculated schemes?
Heard the fiction praise composed for me?

Have you seen me on the street?
Have you seen the way I treat my fellow man?
Colder than the ocean depths I am.
Have you seen my dirty ways?
Seen the way I waste my few and futile days?
Do I look like I could face the great I AM?

Don't you know what it says of one who'd love a weakling? Could that mean that you are capable of breaking all these harmful, lazy habits that I am?

You here saving me...
You here changing me...
Track Name: Rest
Rest
words and music by Angela Sheik

INTRO
||: C G am F :||

V1
C G am F
I need a song that I can rest in
C G am F
I need a song soft like a bed
em am dm G
A melody that my voice can curl up in
em am dm G
And sleep until the words are all said.
||: C G am F :||

V2
I need a song that I can rest in
Give me a chorus familiar and warm
With a melody I can pull on like a nightgown
‘Cause my soul is tired and I cannot go on.
||: C G am F :||


PRE CHORUS:
G am F (F)
These days are crazy, they're crazy, I know.
G am F (F)
This world leaves you empty and broken, I know.

CHORUS:
C G am F
Ooooh,
C G am F
Ooh, it’s all right.
(Repeat)

V3
I need a song that I can rest in,
One that will rock me into the night.
I need a song that will put her arms around me
And tell me, “Hush now, baby, it’s alright.”
||: C G am F :||

(PRE CHORUS 2X)
(CHORUS)
Track Name: Twins From Findlay
Twins from Findlay
words and music by Angela Sheik

I met a pair of twins when I was down in Findlay,
Even all their friends could not tell them apart.
I’m sure that as we talked, my face was tense with envy.
I’m sure I felt a jealous prick inside my heart.

Oh, to have a friend that’s closer than a twin.
Oh, to have a friend that’s been there from the beginning.
To have a friend, a friend that never ends
Who’s always known your name.

Hey, remember all the times we were asked if we were sisters?
How we’d laugh aloud, tickled by the thought.
But now that you’re gone, the question chafes my memory.
Now that you’re gone, and sisters we are not.

Oh, is there a friend that’s closer than a twin?
Is there a friend who’s been there from the beginning?
Is there a friend, a friend that never ends,
And do you know his name?

If I go, will you go with me? If I stay, will you be near me?

Girl, you’d read me books and I’d laugh at all your voices.
Girl, I pinned your hair the day you were a bride.
We’d spend sunny days in a closet swapping dresses.
Girl, I feel one-legged without you by my side.

Oh, is there a friend that’s closer than a twin?
Is there a friend that’s been there from the beginning?
Is there a friend, a friend that never ends,
And do you know his name?

Yes, there is a friend that’s closer than a twin.
Yes, I have a friend, he’s been there from the beginning.
I have a friend, a friend who never ends
And Jesus is his name.
Track Name: Water
Water
Words and music by Angela Sheik


Even he knew the need for water.
Even he felt the cruel bite of thirst.
Even he knew what it was to suffer,
Even he, the king of the earth.

Even he knew the need for water,
Even he knew the weight of the curse.
Even he cried for a deliverer,
Even he, the king of the earth.

So when my soul cries for drink, I know
That even he has felt the blow,
And even he would bend so low
To offer me living water.
