released April 22, 2014

​The EP set out with only a few rules. Rule 1: All instruments had to be played by me. Rule 2: There could be no electronic instrumentation. Rule 3: I had to record and mix everything myself in my home. "Life of Seas" resulted. There are many people who contributed in ways other than playing instruments and singing, or being mixing engineers or mastering producers. They are family and friends who encouraged me along the way. I love you all.

Track Name: Ocean
Your power it moves me
Wills me to be
One with Your movement
To go where You lead
Endlessly reaching
Beyond my gaze
No one can tame You
You won’t be contained
Like the ocean

The depths of Your wisdom
Beyond me reach
Into the places
Where only You see
I’m blinded by vision
Focused on me
I need Your perspective
And Your wisdom so deep
Like an ocean

Carry me
Surround me
Cover me
Help me see Your love
Is an endless ocean
Your love
Is an endless ocean
Track Name: Hey Girl
Hey girl, from across the room
Hey girl, I want to meet you
Hey girl, won’t you stick around?
Hey girl! Who is this girl that I’ve found?

(The way you smile at me)
‘Cause I love it
(The way you dance unseen)
‘Cause I love it
(The way you live so free)
‘Cause I love it

Hey girl, where you gonna go?
Hey girl, are you putting on a show?
Hey girl, who ya gonna be?
Hey girl, you’re making me laugh... at me

(The way you smile at me)
And I love it
(The way you dance unseen)
And I love it
(The way you live so free)
And I love it

Hey girl, running around my dreams
Hey girl, dreaming of what could be
Hey girl, wanting you by my side
Hey girl, I can’t hide it

Hey girl, show me that smile
Hey girl, won’t you stay for awhile
Hey girl, I know it’s true
Hey girl, I want to spend my life... with you

(The way you smile at me)
And I love ya
(The way you dance unseen)
And I love ya
(The way you live so free)
I love ya
Track Name: Sabotage
Today is the day
I trampled myself
Under my own feet
I stepped out of me
A sabotage
Planned by me
What have I done?
What have I done?

Today is the day
I tore my own heart
I ripped it in two
It was darkness consumed
A sabotage
I did not see
What have I done?
What have I done?

Can You mend what I rend?
Can You heal all?
Can You tend to these wounds?
Can You send healing?

Today is the day
That I give back
The pieces of me
I took away from You
A yielding
To the Healer of all
I’m undone
I'm undone. Oh my God...

Can You mend what I rend?
Can You heal all?
Can You tend to these wounds?
Can You send healing?
Track Name: Little One
Someday I'll see you, little one
Someday I'll hold you, little one
Little one

Someday I'll hear you, little one
Someday I'll know you, little one
Little one

I may never understand it
Never comprehend
My comfort lingers inside
Your maker's hands
You're safe with Him
Track Name: As One
You hold a light
In your eyes
Like a lighthouse
Guiding my heart to the shores
Where I find rest from the storm

That’s falling down on you
Me and you
Our love, anchored to the One
Breathing life for two
Me and you
Our lives, now together one

Ooh our love as one
Ooh one love

I’ll hold a light,
When the dark
Clouds over you
Holding your hand through the night
Until the sun smiles again

Smiling down on you
Me and you
Our love, anchored to the One
Breathing life for two
Me and you,
Our lives, together one

I choose you
And you choose me
Together we can sail this life of seas
And I’ll hold you
And you hold me
Together we can navigate our dreams

That shine out from you
Me and you
Our love, anchored to the One
Dreaming life for two
Me and you
Our lives, forever one

Ooh our love as one
Ooh one love

You hold a light, I’ll hold your hand
Track Name: The Quiet
Nothing really to say, and I’d hate to break the silence
It’s nice to hear the world, and not have to speak
There’s a beautiful resonance, that I find quite calming
In the bustle of a world’s pace unceasing

The noise that surrounds me still... seems so still
Swirling me in a sea of static
It’s going nowhere fast, and I can’t stop it
I could try
I could try

I could shout out loud, or sing a melody
Join in with harmony, to sooth the soul
I could play along with a symphony of all these things
But today, I rest in the quiet

Nothing really to say, and I’d hate to break the silence.
But there’s a few things on my mind, so to speak
It’s the jumbled thoughts, of what’s and how’s and when’s, because...
Because I can’t slow them down

The thoughts that consume me still... seem so still
Swirling me in a storm of panic
They’re going nowhere fast, and I can’t stop them
I could try, oh, I could try

I could shout out loud, or sing a melody
Join in with harmony, to sooth the soul
I could play along with a symphony of all these things
But today, I rest in the quiet

In the quiet
