Home Sweet Home lyrics

Original lyrics and music by Cortney Matz 2019

Walking up this mountain
Can’t stop thinking about us
Not knowing where we’re going
Or what happens at the top

Maybe there’ll be safety
Maybe sanity – maybe not
All I seem to know now
Is I can’t get there by myself

Home sweet home
No one knows

Running through this fountain
Fount of blessing, fount of rain
Love all woven through the
Heights of happiness, depths of pain

Home sweet home
No one knows
Home sweet home
No one knows

Falling from this landing
Lost my footing, broke away
Hey
I can’t explain how much this feels like breaking through
As I say hello to you
From the ground up
Let’s start over

Home sweet home
No one knows

Swimming in this ocean
Depths of treasure I never knew
Nowhere near the bottom
And I can’t get there without you

Together lyrics

Original lyrics and music by Cortney Matz 2019

I am a capable woman
You are a competent man
Each of us functioning just fine as we are
You have a way that is winsome
And I have a heart that is kind
Lately I’ve wondered if these two things might
Best be combined

I think we should be together
You are my favorite friend
I think we should be together
I don’t know what comes next
But it might be nice to be aware
I miss you when you’re not there
It seems like there should be something more to explore
Together

Maybe we’ll be Sid and Nancy
Or maybe Bonnie and Clyde
Causing ourselves more problems than we solve
Maybe we’ll find our own rhythm
And rewrite our favorite rhyme
And one day discover a love we’d never
Never leave behind

I think we should be together
You are my favorite friend
I think we should be together
I don’t know what comes next
But it might be nice to be aware
I miss you when you’re not there
It seems like there should be something more
Don’t you want to go and explore?

With every beat of my heart
We’re drifting apart
Don’t know where we’ll end up
It’s one of life’s mysteries
I’ll never understand
Shouldn’t we be here together?

Ooo, together
Ooo
I don’t know how this ends

Solitary Road lyrics

Original lyrics and music by Cortney Matz

You say, “Go find your way,
Don’t hang back, don’t wait another day”
So I go make my play
One step forward, then another

Oh the road is narrow and the road is long
So I lift my voice and I sing my song
Who knows how to count the steps unknown
On a solitary road?

Oh – the road so far from home
Oh – on this solitary road

I say, “Go find your way,
Face your fears and watch them dissipate
So you go, will not stay
Marching on to new horizons

Step by step, mile by mile
Nothing left behind
Taking ground, making waves
‘Til I’ve found my way

Oh the road is narrow and the road is long
So I lift my voice and I sing my song
Who knows how to count the steps unknown
On a solitary road?

Ben’s Song lyrics

Original lyrics and music by Cortney Matz, 2019

Run little brother, run along
And wrestle with the world
Find yourself a niche and blow your way right through it
Find your perfect place to make your mark
And when you’re ready, get down to it
All that hard work you’ll be glad you gave

You got a future out there, somewhere
And you gotta go find it
You got a future out there, somewhere
Gotta bring it home
It’s a jungle out there, take care
Try not to mind it
You’re not alone – oh, no

Well you can serve it up on a platter
And eat it with a spoon
You can tie it to the back of your bike
And ride around it
Take a picture, put it in a frame
And show it to your friends and neighbors
Give it time, they’ll see how far you came

You got a future out there, somewhere
And you gotta go find it
You got a future out there, somewhere
Gotta bring it home
It’s a jungle out there, take care
Try not to mind it
You’re not alone – oh, no

You were made for something unique
It may take some time
Don’t despair, you’re heading somewhere
I can’t wait to see what you find

So, run little brother, run along
And see what you’ll become
There’s something bright and shiny up ahead
With your name on it
So tie your laces, runners take your marks
And when the whistle blows, you’re ready
Take the prize and see how proud we are

You got a future out there, somewhere
And you gotta go find it
You got a future out there, somewhere
Gotta bring it home
It’s a jungle out there, take care
Try not to mind it
You’re not alone – oh, no

The Possibilities lyrics

lyrics and music by Cortney Matz; additional lyrics by Leslie Carol

I don’t have everything I need
I don’t have any guarantees
I just have You right here next to me
And oh – the possibilities

I don’t know everything I need
I don’t know if I will succeed
I just know that You have faith in me
And oh – the possibilities

I’m not shaken
I’m not shaken
I’m not shaken
‘Cause I’m standing on solid ground
