Everything 04:00
Before you, I was sittin' on a fast train that was headed nowhere Then you got me turned around again Before you, I had no reason to live and no place to go Then you got me going once again. You opened my eyes to what was inside... CHORUS: All I want and all I need You're everything, everything Surely as I live and breathe You're everything, everything Before you, I found I wasn't half the man that I really needed to be You showed me what life was all about Before you, I was livin' in fear not sure what to do You got me beyond my doubt. You opened my eyes to what was inside... CHORUS 2x BRIDGE: I never knew what I didn't have until you showed me what I was missing. I didn't know I was dying until you stepped in and saved me You opened my eyes to what was inside... CHORUS 2x
2.
Think of Me 03:34
Off you go, on your own, tryin’ to get away from home, not even pausing just to say goodbye. Heading where the grass is green, things just aren’t as they seem. Now you’ve lost it all and you don’t know why. CHORUS: You should’ve spoken to me first before going your own way. I could’ve saved you so much time. You could’ve had a better day. You should’ve taken the time to think of me, ‘cause I was thinkin’ of you. You could have so much more if you’d just think of me. Think of me. I still think of you, wondering what it is you do. You don’t even know just what you’ve got. I wish you’d think of me, pay attention, hear me. Notice me standing here next to you. CHORUS BRIDGE: You can’t be your own with your heart of stone, and now you’re all alone. You wanna be a clone of everybody else… CHORUS
3.
Time after time, I’ve tried to tell you and day after day, I’ve tried to show you. You don’t know me the way you think you do. I’m just trying to show you who I am. CHORUS 1: If you can’t take me as I am, please listen to me. I’m just trying to be what I was born to be. If you can’t see what I was made for, let me show you me. I’m just trying to be what I was born to be. Have you ever felt out of place? And have you ever wanted to hide your face? Are you living your life the way it was meant to be? I just want to show you who you are. CHORUS 2: I can take you as you are, please listen to me. Just try to be what you were born to be. If you don’t know what you were made for, just try to see. I’m just trying to show you what you were born to be. CHORUS 1 and 2
4.
Time & Place 04:18
You’re on my mind all the time. You’re in my heart, it’s true. And I can’t stop thinking about you. You’re the reason I do what I do To keep you close to me I keep you by my side. I’ll never let you go (I love you too much to let you go) Nobody else could ever love you more than I do (I love you) I just want you to know… CHORUS: I give you my time (all the time in the world) I’m having the time of my life with you. And there is a place (a place in my heart for you) A special place designed for you. I love you more and more than you could ever know. I’m with you in good and bad times, and beside you wherever you go. I’ll never ever leave you by yourself, alone. You mean so much to me (You don’t know how much you mean to me) Nobody else could ever love you more than I do (I love you) I just want you to see… CHORUS To keep you close to me I keep you by my side. I’ll never let you go (I love you too much to let you go) Nobody else could ever love you more than I do (I love you) I just want you to know… CHORUS 2x
5.
Try Again 04:00
Do you think you can forgive me, or have I gone too far this time? Can I find it in myself to start again? Is there anything that can stand in my way? CHORUS: No! This is not the end! Knock me down, I’ll get back up and I’m gonna try again! I will not give up! No, I won’t give! You can try to hold me down but I’m gonna try again! I messed up and I don’t know what went wrong. I don’t even know if I can forgive myself. I’m gonna need some help getting back in step. Is there anything that can hold me back? CHORUS BRIDGE: Can you find it in your heart to forgive me? Can you and I make things right? I wanna let you know, I’m doing what I can. We can work this out together. You can’t stop me, I keep going on and on and on and on! I may be down, but I’m never out and I’m never gone! I won’t stop until nothing’s left and all is done! I won’t quit until I’ve won! CHORUS 2x
6.
I see a brightness in your eyes as you look at the world around you. You take delight in all the simple things. I wish I could see the way that you do. I know there’s so much more to life than what we can see and I know it’s up to me to show you the way. CHORUS: What the future holds no one really knows But it sure looks bright from where I stand. And come what may, I will never ever stray from teaching you how to be a man. I’m not the wisest man in the world, but I can show you how to be. I don’t deserve you in my life, but you’ve been given to me There’s so much to this life that I want you to see. I can’t wait to show you the way. CHORUS 2x
7.
Tell me, what did you see in me that made you want to save me? It’s so hard for me to believe even after all this time. I know it wasn’t something I said or did that made you reach out to me the only thing it could’ve been was love. And I know it’s… CHORUS: All because of you I have a reason to celebrate. Yes I know it’s all because of you, I’m no longer alone. Tell me, what can I do to get even closer to you? You’re all that I want. You’re all that I need. You’re more than I could get on my own. I know it wasn’t something I said or did that made you reach out to me the only thing it could’ve been was love. And I know it’s… CHORUS BRIDGE: Because of you I have the strength to stand on my own, and your love will never let me go. CHORUS 2x
8.
I’ve had my eye on you for awhile. And every thought of you… well, it makes me smile. You may not have noticed , but I want to be your one and only love. But it’s up to you to give me a try. There’s so much more to me than what meets the eye. There’s so much I want to give to you so you’ll be satisfied. CHORUS: Expect the unexpected from me and I’ll do for you what you’ve never dreamed. You can expect the unexpected from me and I’ll be your everything. You can depend on me, it’s true. I live my life completely for you. Everything that I could possibly do to be your one and only love, I offer it, no strings attached, to you. There’s so much more to me than what meets the eye. There’s so much I want to give to you so you’ll be satisfied. CHORUS I want to be your everything. I can give you so much more than what you expect of me. There’s so much more that I want you to see. CHORUS 3x
9.
Let It Sleep 04:32
For many years I’ve worked so hard to be everything that you expect of me. But all of this is not who I am. I’ve just been showing what you want to see. You want me to stay the same, just so I can fit inside your frame. CHORUS 1: Could you please let it go? Let me be what I was meant to be My picture hanging up on your wall, the way that you’ve always seen me. Now that picture doesn’t look the same. To you, the image isn’t quite what it should be. You want me to stay the same, just so I can fit inside your frame. CHORUS 2: Could you please let it go? Let me be what I was meant to be. I know that you don’t want to hear what I have to say, But please just let it sleep. CODA CHORUS 1 and 2
10.
Good to Me 05:04
Every moment of every day, I’m reminded of just how good you’ve been to me. There are no mere words I can say to describe just how good you’ve been to me. You’re more than a friend, more than someone that I love. (You’re everything to me) You’re better than anything that I can think of. You’ve been so good to me. I’m really not worth your time, but you still love me. That’s how good you’ve been to me. And I don’t give you enough of mine but you forgive me. That’s how good you are to me. You’re more than I am, more than I could ever be. (You’re so much better than me) You’ve given your everything so I can see that you’ve been so good to me. CHORUS: You have been so good to me You have been so good to me You have been so good to me You have been so good to me BRIDGE: I can never measure up to who you are But I don’t have to measure up, because of who you are. I can never measure up to who you are But I don’t have to measure up, because of who you are. You’re so good. CHORUS OUT
11.
Invincible 05:15
The world doesn’t see what I see and the world doesn’t understand me. In the world, no one believes what I say. But the world is not you. Sometimes I think I can’t go on, but then I’m with you… CHORUS: You lift me up! (You make my life worth living) You let me go (when I need to be free)! You break me down when I need to be taken down, then you build me up again. Together we’re invincible (You keep me where I need to be) We’re invincible (We have a bond that can’t be broken) We’re invincible Together, we are one! You are the one who knows me. Still you are the one who loves me. You are the one who completes who I am. I’d lose my mind without you. Sometimes I think I can’t go on, but then I’m with you… CHORUS CODA CHORUS
12.
So there I was, thinking my life was the best that it could be. Surrounded by nothing but good things with blessings as far as I could see. There I was feeling satisfied with everything I had. My life could get no better. There was nothing left to add. It seemed my life was perfect, with nothing to improve… CHORUS: Then along came you and you turned my whole world upside down everything I knew got even better when you came around. When along came you. So here we are… Life has changed for the better once again. I never saw it coming, but I’m ready to begin with where we are. It’s like starting over in a brand new place. No worries about the future, nothing but love and grace. It seemed my life was perfect, with nothing to improve… CHORUS 2x

about

The overall theme of the album, lyrically, is LOVE. However, the album also explores areas of acceptance, forgiveness, and conformity. With "Time & Place", Eric continues his tradition of writing "songs that anyone can relate to", with all the songs containing dual meanings.

From Eric:

"These are all Christian songs, and they are all secular songs. It just depends on where you're coming from in life. You might hear one song as a love song to my wife, while someone else might hear the same song as a love song between me and God. It's a beautiful thing!"
