Best For You 03:06
Should I extend a loving hand Or should I let you learn for yourself With no help from me or anyone else Should I be your only friend Lend you both my ears and all of my head or just wait For you while you crawl through emotional haze I want the best for you I want to help you through I want to help you see The way your choices shape the ones you claim to love Who so desperately try to love you And I want to help you be The person that you were meant to be But you just have to walk right through uncertainty I want the best for you I want to help you through I want the I want the best for you

Home 03:01
Time flies and carries me far away So many friends keep on running in place Can’t give up comfort for better days Things keep on moving around My sense of home has gone And some cats just won’t get along They’re too small to see beyond their flaws I’ve been moving and growing and changing Wish I could slow down and just be So many new people support me But there’s nothing like feeling at home My home My home Still looking for something to call my My home My home I'm still looking for something to call my own I don’t need everything to feel just right or squeaky clean But one thing I lose too frequently Is familiarity My home My home Still looking for something to call my My home My home I'm still looking for something to call my own

It’s hard to be grateful if your chin has never touched the ground Just keep that head up high without floating up in the clouds I’ve been finding joy and spending time on things I used to love I find that being good’s not as good as just not giving up I've been giving myself the chance just to hop back on my feet 'Cuz I bite myself right in the butt when I try to do so perfectly Every day I have the chance To let the beauty of the world wash over me And I have been through mud that went right up to my knees So when I’m walking into trouble, I can do so confidently Finally I see Finally I see Finally I see the blessings and beauty around me Finally I see Finally I see Finally I see the blessings and beauty around me Hard to be grateful when your eyes are on the negative And it’s hard to be faithful when you’re tested and tested and tested But baby I see the beauty of the world around me Take a look around, you’ll see more beauty (In front of us, in front of us) Open up your eyes, you’ll see it truly (All around us, all around) You’re doing better than you think Pick your head up once again Find a way Just find a way To see that beauty Finally I see Finally I see Finally I see the blessings and beauty around me Finally I see Finally I see Finally I see the blessings and beauty around me
