Track Name: Carry On
Finally get to rest these bones
Finally release these arms
Rest these feet that walk too long

Time to mend up my heart
Say goodbye to those who part
Times will end for new ones to start

But don’t let time steal your love away
Or suffocate the things of yesterday
Carry on
And let your heart grow strong

No one’s ready to leave behind
The beautiful things that they find
But time will come to an end for them

But don’t let time steal your love away
Or suffocate the things of yesterday
Carry on
And let your heart grow strong

Oh, oh, oh…

Carry on
And let your heart grow strong
Track Name: Dylan
Why'd you run away from the life you had
From the life that you'd been given
Was the distant voice of destiny calling you
To escape from your prison

Seventeen times a man, sixteen times a fool
What was eating at you?
Did a seed of desire for freedom inside you grow
Each time they brought you back home?
Each time they brought you back home?

Oh Dylan, where do you begin?
Oh Dylan, where do you begin?

It's hard for the songbird to find his way
When the absent mind of sorrow settles in
Like a cold sheet of ice that lays upon the winters ground
It blankets over the last of the flame

As the weary wanderer walks through the night
He closes his eyes to listen
To the whistling midnight song that will only play
For those who have lost their way
For those who have lost their way

Oh Dylan, where do you begin?
Oh Dylan, where do you begin?

The ship of time is sailing across the sea
The sea that is your life
Will your ship make it to the sunny shores of certainty
Or sink before your ship comes in?
Or sink before your ship comes in?

Oh Dylan, where do you begin?
Oh Dylan, where do you begin?
Track Name: Little Bird
I have, I have seen today
A little bird, it flew my way
It said to me ‘Where’re you going to?'
Because I, I will follow you

So, take me to where I’ve never been
Show me all the things I’ve never seen
I will follow you wherever you go
I’ll be your
Little bird

Come with me, I will show you how
To find your wings and float around
We’ll see the skies and we’ll see the trees
Find you a home in beneath the leaves

I’ll take you to where you’ve never been
Show you all the things you’ve never seen
I’ll take you wherever I go
You’ll be my
Little bird

Please don’t go, don’t fly away
Will I ever see you again?
Even though I knew this time would come
It’s still not easy to let you go

Let me go with you
I could fly with you
Let me fly with you
I’ll be with you wherever you go

Cause you’re my
Little bird
