Track Name: Lilly
Sinners, cry like you mean it; don’t be ashamed to behave.
Cities, keep your hearts open; let anyone in you can save.
Lovers, love like you’re broken; don’t be afraid to be hurt.
Fighters, let all be forgiven; don’t walk away ‘til you’re sure.

There’s not time enough for wasting.
There’s no time to complain.
You can feel my heart flutter, lonely.
I feel dangerous.

Sisters, sing for courage; don’t raise your voice just to be heard.
Faithful, die like you want to; Heaven is near, rest assured.
I’ve weathered arduous summers, sometimes there’s hell to be paid.
But if you don’t covet your love then something you love can be saved.

You say I fall in love too easy,
You say I fall in love too fast.
But I feel my heart despair for company,
With you I feel dangerous.

Track Name: Wayfaring Stranger
I am a poor wayfaring stranger; I'm traveling through this world of woe.
And there's no sickness, toil nor danger in that bright land to which I go.
I'm going there to see my father; I'm going there no more to roam.
I'm just a-going over Jordan; I'm just a-going over home.

I know dark clouds will gather round me; I know my way is rough and steep.
Yet golden fields lie just before me where God's redeemed shall ever sleep.
I'm going there to see my father; He said He'd meet me when I'd come.
I'm only going over Jordan; I'm only going over home.

I want to wear a crown of glory when I get home to that good land.
I want to shout salvation's story in concert with the blood-washed band.
I'm going home to see my Savior, to sing his praise forever more.
I'm just a-going over Jordan; I'm just a-going over home.
