We could not have done this album without family and friends who believed in us. To my family - Berenger and Evie June Ayers, David & Candy Lewis and Mandy & Joshua Blankenship - your love, support, sacrifice and constant encouragement have carried us through the valleys and given us wings. We love you so much. To the Petty Family, Zugsay, Cheskiewicz, Xanthy, The Glaros', The Ledbetters, Wallace, The Maddens, The Moores, Aram, Adair and Erin Brown - you made us laugh, you made us cry, you made us jump up and down and bring this dream to real life, we love you all.

Track Name: This Sacred Trust
Let’s rewind, start again
Remember why we’re in the same room
Just a sec, let’s be still
Calm our anger, stop fighting

With a deep breath
Head on your chest
You holding me

Let’s come close, eye to eye
Ears open, listening
We are here because of love
No one can break this, only us

With a deep breath
Head on your chest
You holding me

We’re gonna keep our promise
Lets hold each other tight
And guard this sacred trust
Track Name: Stare It In The Face
Stare it in the face
I know your afraid
And I know theres pain
But it’s the only way

It’s time to make amends
Even with the mean ones
They no longer have you
So cut the rope around you

There’s no use in holding it all in
There’s no day that’s free from danger

Let’s jump in to the deep end
Let’s give in to forgiveness
These waters are healing
Let’s stay here in freedom

We were born for mercy
We were born for love
We were made to give it
And now it’s up to us

Let’s jump in to the deep end
Let’s give in to forgiveness
These waters are healing
Let’s stay here in freedom

Running into mercy, running into love
Breathing in your mercy, breathing in your love
Track Name: Palisades
Far and wide are the things I've tried please forgive me
I've grown of age at the end of the day I'm still lonely

Palisades and barricades
Could not stop these storms from a comin'
So we lit our torches set our course
Made our way and traveled toward the morning

To the battlefield
We war our fears
Blood sweat and tears
Birth to ashes
The night is long
But loves fight is strong
At break of dawn
Fear falls alone

Aching mind you know it's time for changing
A thousand nights for one sunrise I'm still waiting

Palisades and barricades
Could not stop these storms from a comin'
So we lit our torches set our course
Made our way and traveled toward the morning

To the battlefield
We war our fears
Blood sweat and tears
Birth to ashes
The night is long
But loves fight is strong
At break of dawn
Fear falls alone

Oh - oh - oh - oh - oh
Oh - oh - oh - oh - oh
Oh - oh - oh - oh - oh - oh
Track Name: Abe
Abe was a big strong man
Doing the best he can
At age thir - ty - six
Big house, a wife and kids

When he was 10 years old
Life brought a giant storm
Dad left and momma cried
Abe’s heart was torn right through

Enlisted at 18
Cheers to the brave marine
Making momma proud
Drowning the voices out

Stop, look, listen
Your heart is bleeding
Time won’t mend this unless
You look back again

Married at 25
To the love of his life
Baby on the way
Now the voices have to fade

Stop, look, listen
Your heart is bleeding
Time won’t mend this unless
You look back again

Little ones all around
Voices louder now
Storms brew in the distance
Is this really all there is
Track Name: Goodnight Charlie
Watching the stars with you
Seemed a lifetime ago
Seems obligation is a more traveled road

Mind chained to duty
Heart-struck by the moon
When will our dreams become what we do

Good night Charlie
Good night Moon
See you tomorrow or sometime soon

Shadows are closing in
Clouds cover the moon
Younger days and talks till dawn
Ended way too soon

Mind chained to duty
Heart-struck by the moon
When will our dreams become what we do

Good night Charlie
Good night Moon
See you tomorrow or sometime soon

It’s better to know we did than know we didn’t
Its better to say we tried than know we never
