about

"Time & Place" is the sixth full-length album and seventh solo release overall from independent a cappella artist, Eric Gwin. As is the case with all of Eric's recordings, all sounds (including drum and percussion sounds) were vocally or anatomically produced.

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!"

Track Name: Everything
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
Track Name: Think of Me
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
Track Name: Phenom (Born to Be)
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
Track Name: Time & Place
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
Track Name: Try Again
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
Track Name: The Future (Eaven's Song)
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
Track Name: Because of You
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
Track Name: Expect the Unexpected
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
Track Name: Let It Sleep
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
Track Name: Good to Me
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
Track Name: Invincible
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

CHORUS
Track Name: Along Came You (Nevaeh's Song)
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
