Track Name: "Anchor" - Bess Rogers
Gravity feels weaker than it ever used to.
Light as a feather, blown by the wind without you,
I float above all that I love and I can't get home,
Till you pull me back, you show me that I am not alone.

[chorus]
I need an anchor to hold me down,
Baby you keep my feet on the ground,
Don't let me float, don't let me float away.

When it turns to night, stars just fade into the darkness.
I'm lost in the tides, sailing without a compass.
Nothing to show which way to go, it all seems wrong.
Till you bring me back, you show me that I'm already home.

[repeat chorus}
I need a moon that'll calm the sea,
Baby you do the right thing for me,
Don't let me float, don't let me float away.

Honey you're the reason ,
That I get up when my knees are bleeding,
That I wake up when I'm lost and dreaming,
Yeah you bring me back.

Honey you're the reason ,
That I get up when my knees are bleeding,
That I wake up when I'm lost and dreaming,
Yeah you bring me back.

[repeat chorus]

[repeat chorus]
I need a moon that'll calm the sea,
Baby you do the right thing for me,
Don't let me float, don't let me float away.
Track Name: "In My Life" - Bess Rogers
There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All this places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life, I love you more
In my life, I love you more
