Lyrics

REDEEMED

 

All romance may be

Just luck and chance to me

Never leaving us well

But beauty now appears

A vision finds me here

Ask me why, I can’t tell

My useless words

Fall silent as you rise

My empty life

Born again in your eyes

Angels have heard you

But I don’t deserve you

They seem to think I’m worth the pain

But miracles find me

Release all that bind me

I’ll never be the same

Blinded by beauty

Passion runs through me

I don’t believe and yet it seems

Heaven was set free

The moment you found me

My life has been redeemed

And what now can I give

To bless this chance to live

I have nothing at all

Words I cannot say

A debt I can’t repay

Humbly waiting my fall

Gone is my life

Its chains are now a memory

Gone is my shame

Still don’t know what it means to me but

Angels have heard you

But I don’t deserve you

They seem to think I’m worth the pain

But miracles find me

Release all that bind me

I’ll never be the same

Blinded by beauty

Passion runs through me

I don’t believe and yet it seems

Heaven was set free

The moment you found me

My life has been…

All I prayed for is gone

All I begged for – hopeless and wrong

Now I cry - for the one thing I need in my life

To be worthy alone in your eyes

Angels have heard you

But I don’t deserve you

They seem to think I’m worth the pain

But miracles find me

Release all that bind me

I’ll never be the same

Blinded by beauty

Passion runs through me

I don’t believe and yet it seems

Heaven was set free

The moment you found me

My life has been…

Angels have heard you

But I don’t deserve you

They seem to think I’m worth the pain

But miracles find me

Release all that bind me

I’ll never be the same

Blinded by beauty

Passion runs through me

I don’t believe and yet it seems

Heaven was set free

The moment you found me

My life has been redeemed

My life has been--- redeemed

Lyrics

STATE OF TEXAS

 

Drivin’ on the highway and I

Came across a diner, I sat

Next to a young cowboy

With big stars in his eyes

 

He said, "Buddy, check this

Drove 500 miles to Texas

Cuz I heard that somethin’ special’s

Found in places this size"

 

Then he tipped his hat and departed

As he left I heard him call

Said ev’ry single cowboy in Texas is havin’ a ball

 

Think big! Just like the Lonestar sky

Think large! As tall as it is wide

Big dreams! Can make a life amazing

Believe your dreams are as big as

 

Texas! That’s why it’s one big party

Texas! Down south where life is hearty

Think Texas! This state’s a state of mind

Live your life big in the State of Texas

 

Oh, oh, oh! Yeah,Texas!

Oh, oh, oh! Think Texas!

Oh, oh, oh! Live your life big in the State of Texas

 

So there I got the message

And I said, "Shoot, I’m here in Texas!"

And I saw that all the people

Were just livin’ large and

 

They were buildin’ big lives,

Like a super XXL size cuz they

Know that dreams are only

Just as deep as your heart

 

Texans know that bigger is better and you’ll hear it when they call

Cuz ev’ry single cowboy in Texas is havin’ a ball

 

Think big! Just like the Lonestar sky

Think large! As tall as it is wide

Big dreams! Can make a life amazing

Believe your dreams are as big as

 

Texas! That’s why it’s one big party

Texas! Down south where life is hearty

Think Texas! This state’s a state of mind

Live your life big in the State of Texas

 

Oh, oh, oh! Yeah,Texas!

Oh, oh, oh! Think Texas!

Oh, oh, oh! Live your life big in the State of Texas

 

Texas ain’t just somewhere to go to

It’s a state of mind for all

Now me and ev’ry cowboy in Texas are having a ball

We’re having a ball

 

Think big! Just like the Lonestar sky

Think large! As tall as it is wide

Big dreams! Can make a life amazing

Believe your dreams are as big as

 

Texas! That’s why it’s one big party

Texas! Down south where life is hearty

Think Texas! This state’s a state of mind

Live your life big in the State of…

 

Think big! Just like the Lonestar sky

Think large! As tall as it is wide

Big dreams! Can make a life amazing

Believe your dreams are as big as

 

Texas! That’s why it’s one big party

Texas! Down south where life is hearty

Think Texas! This state’s a state of mind

Live your life big in the State of Texas

 

Oh, oh, oh! Yeah, Texas!

Oh, oh, oh! Just think Texas!

Oh, oh, oh! Live your life big in the State of Texas

PRAYER FOR MY BROTHER

 

He used to wear a small toy fireman’s hat

An old red raincoat that was torn

And then he’d rescue me out of the fire

As he would save the day once more

 

Some other times, he’d wear a plastic badge

Pull me over in the driveway

Cuz I was speeding on my tricycle

He’d say I’ve got to mind my way

 

Now, 20 years past

Brother he wears a completely new outfit

But can our family stand

Just one more day

 

So when you close your eyes at night

Please say a prayer for my brother

And Ask God to keep him well

As he keeps us safe, you’ll see

 

He left our home and went away

Cuz someone needs him more than I do

I pray so hard just to believe

Cuz I still need my hero please

Just bring my brother back to me

 

And now a candle burns in St. Joan’s Church

Our family’s hopes within it blown

We pray the angels take this light to him

So he can find his way back home

 

Momma prays every day

Little Bro Billy gets quiet for hours

Even Dad whispers words

When he’s alone

 

So when you close your eyes at night

Please say a prayer for my brother

And Ask God to keep him well

As he keeps us safe, you’ll see

 

He left our home and went away

Cuz someone needs him more than I do

I pray so hard just to believe

Cuz I still need my hero please

Just bring my brother back to me

 

I pray so hard just to believe

Cuz I still need my hero please

Just bring my brother back to me

THE GREAT TOMORROW

 

If you ask me my heart’s desire

I would tell you I don’t know what that is

I would hide from you, I would walk away

 

And if you ask me to follow my own path

I would tell you I don’t know the way

"How am I to know?", That’s what I’d say

 

But here on the edge of the Great Tomorrow

One wish is all that it may take

The clock has long since struck 12 on this my story

There’s no time to wait

 

If you ask me if I am scared

I would cry, I would cry the loudest "yes"

But in my mind I know, what I could do

 

And if you ask me if I am happy

Oh I couldn’t, I couldn’t tell the truth

But in my heart I know, it might be soon

 

For here on the edge of the Great Tomorrow

One dream is all that it may take

The clock has long since struck 12 and now I’m ready

And I’m wide awake

 

So I ask to find my heart’s desire

Cuz I think the truth’s somewhere there inside

And I smile a while, cuz now I feel it

 

And I ask myself, could I have known this

That the answer was there all along

And I smile a moment, cuz now I see it

 

For here on the edge of the Great Tomorrow

One wish is all that it may take

And I can feel the dreams that still hold on despite the sorrow

Can I chance to fly, Could this finally be my time?

 

If you ask me my heart’s desire

I would tell you I now know what that is

Lyrics

BREATHE

 

All the world leaves me weary

No break, no release now

‘Til you’re lying by me

And I lay down my sword

 

There’s just one thing I crave

One thing that can save me

When war’s unrelenting and cold

Your passion, it comforts my soul

 

Breathe into me

Fire of my dreams

What can revive me like this now

Breathe into me

And all that I need

Is flowing like wine past my lips now

Feel my heart soar

I ‘m living once more

Call out my name I’ll believe

I come alive as I’m taking you in

I breathe

 

When the world is a battle

I reach for my lover

Feel your essence in mine

My hope in your hands

 

There’s just one thing I feel

One thing that is still real

The sigh in your kiss sets me free

Your spirit comes blowing through me

 

Breathe into me

Fire of my dreams

What can revive me like this now

Breathe into me

And all that I need

Is flowing like wine past my lips now

Feel my heart soar

I ‘m living once more

Call out my name I’ll believe

I come alive as I’m taking you in

I breathe

 

To breathe is to live

To breathe is to love

The one I adore

To breathe is divine

Your lips touching mine

And I am reborn

 

Breathe into me

Fire of my dreams

What can revive me like this now

Breathe into me

And all that I need

Is flowing like wine past my lips now

Feel my heart soar

I ‘m living once more

Call out my name I’ll believe

I come alive as I’m taking you in

I breathe

 

I breathe

I breathe

SOMEBODY'S ANGEL

 

They say a boy can fly

When he falls in love

He wakes up in a bed still warm from someone he dreams of

Smiles, looks to the window that the sun is rising in

And sees the face of Somebody’s Angel

Smiling back at him

 

They say he’s most alive

When he falls in love

He’s still amazed that someone thinks that he’s sent from above

Rubs his eyes and in the mirror musses up his hair

And sees the face of Somebody’s Angel

Now reflected there

 

The morning is glorious

When the world’s no longer lonely

The arms of another do not lie

Anything can happen when a boy can realize

Life can make a man but only love can make him fly

 

They say you’ll hear him laugh

When you see him smile

He breathes a sigh and takes some time to live this dream a while

Flops back on the bed but slowly stops to look behind

Cuz he feels the wings of Somebody’s Angel

Lift him toward the sky

 

He dreams of tomorrow

And its happy ever after

The visions of Heaven joy can bring

"Look what I can do now

Look how high I fly" he sings

Life can make a man but only love can give him wings

 

They say a boy can fly

When he falls in love

They say he’ll wait there smiling for the one he’s dreaming of

Hears a knock and races to the door to welcome in

The smiling face of Somebody’s Angel

Looking back at him

 

He sees the face of Somebody’s Angel

Smiling back at him

UNITED

And we stand united

So many sounds, but just one song

And we stand together

So many lives, one family strong

Though we may be broken

We may be hurt, but we have no fear

The past is the past now

We searched for our way, and we found it here

With so many hearts all filling the streets

Together in time, one rhythm, one beat

It flows through us all, so answer the call

United and free

And we are strong now – cuz we’re united and free

Oh yes we’re strong now – cuz we’re united and free

No need to worry – ‘bout what tomorrow may bring

Drying our tears and facing our fears, we’re

Strong now – cuz we’re united and free

So hear our song now – and live the lives we can lead

And all together – we’ll stand as one, you will see

Spirit provides, the truth will arrive

United and free

It’s everything that we need

We live united and free

We stand united

We live united and free

We live for you and for me

Cuz we’re united and free

We stand united, yeah, yeah, yeah

When darkness surrounds you

We will be here, rise like the sun

And no one will hurt you

Our lives are reborn, the world will be one

All brothers and sisters

A shoulder to cry on, hearts that will care

The tears they will dry now

Just reach out your hand, and I will be there

Take courage and be all you ever dreamed

And find that the world is not as it seemed

We’ll shout it out loud – unwavering proud

United and free

And we are strong now – cuz we’re united and free

Oh yes we’re strong now – cuz we’re united and free

No need to worry – ‘bout what tomorrow may bring

Drying our tears and facing our fears, we’re

Lyrics

THE RIVER

The rain comes down tonight

It drowns my world and hides my pain

I couldn’t make it right

A passion I could not sustain

The clouds roll in and then it starts

The river rises in my heart

If you could look at me

It should be plain to see that

The tears that fill my eyes

Are the ones I shed for

The memory of our love

A feeling like no other

So baby turn away

As my heart cries out for you

The water fills my soul

Perhaps to wash away my sin

The struggle to be whole

The hope redemption will begin

I raise my hands for help from Heaven

But darkness comes it rains again – comin’ down again

Despair has left me blind

The river runs and races

Erodes the stone that I

Once thought was my heart

If you could hear my voice

You’ll hear the song I’m singing

So baby close this door

And you’ll see no more of me

If I dry my tears

I would see your face once again

If I face my fears

I would see your eyes, and

Hear you cry, and

Feel your sadness too

So baby say goodbye

If it’s not now, it’s never

No need to see me cry and prolong this sadness

Don’t even need to try

Our story ends forever

I’ll leave my heart behind

And I will not follow

So turn your eyes from me

It’s time to walk away now

Too late to try again

And to find redemption

Let go of what we had

And let me take a last look

And let this river run

As it takes my heart from you

So baby say goodbye

If it’s not now, it’s never

No need to see me cry and prolong this sadness

Don’t even need to try

Our story ends forever

I’ll leave my heart behind

And I will not follow you

 

And I will not follow you
