Thank U

Alanis Morissette – Thank U

How about getting off of these antibiotics
How about stopping eating when I’m filled up
How about them transparent dangling carrots
How about that ever elusive kudo

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

How about me not blaming you for everything
How about me enjoying the moment for once
How about how good it feels to finally forgive you
How about grieving it all one at a time

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

The moment I let go of it was
The moment I got more than I could handle
The moment I jumped off of it was
The moment I touched down

How about no longer being masochistic
How about remembering your divinity
How about unabashedly bawling your eyes out
How about not equating death with stopping

Thank you India
Thank you providence
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you nothingness
Thank you clarity
Thank you thank you silence

From I AM LEGEND

Pages, by Leeland

Listen here: Leeland – Pages

When I stand before God’s throne
Nothing hidden, nothing unknown
Dead to my body, my old life He took
God will hold in His hands my days in a book

When I kneel down that day
Looking upon His holy face
I will remember with trembling
Every single moment, every memory

Who was I and where was I going
What kind of fruit were my actions growing
Staring at the pages
He’ll be staring at the pages of my life
Was my passion just to know Him
Did I really let it out and show Him
Staring at the pages
He’ll be staring at the pages of my life

This house I’m building every day
Silver and gold, straw and the hay
Tried by fire
Will it stand when the flame gets higher
Or will it burn away

In Your presence I belong
And without You, I am lost
Come and change me from the inside
In my weakness, You are strong
By the power of the cross
Come and change me from the inside

Who am I and where am I going
What kind of fruit are my actions growing
Staring at the pages
You are staring at the pages of my life
Is my passion just to know You
Am I living this life to show You
Staring at the pages
You are staring at the pages of my life

The End. by Jason Reeves

Listen here: Jason Reeves – The End.

The end is such a scary place to start
everything is torn apart
and I don’t know where to go from here
in the end, there’s no reason to pretend
I know you won’t be back again
I gotta find a way from here..

I don’t know where I’ll fall down
but I’m sure to hit the ground..

cause it’s not over till it’s over
every ending’s a new beginning
one more chance to get it right
one more chance to get it wrong
its not over till it’s over
sometime’s nowhere leads to somewhere
and it all starts again
in the end

and it’s such a scary place to be
everything is in between
and I don’t know where to go from here
in the end I see it’s all up to me
to figure out where I should be
I’m gonna find a way from here

I don’t know where I’ll fall down
but I’m sure to hit the ground

Reveal the Kingdom

by Downhere

Listen here: Downhere – Reveal The Kingdom

From the ashes, and the dust,
We have found where we belong
Renewed our bonds, of soul and voice,
We cry out our anthem song
Be thou our strength, to carry through
The hope of grace and bear the truth
As we wait for you to

Reveal the unseen Kingdom
The glory of the new Son
Where ever more His love imparts
The kingdom in our hearts
Reveal the Kingdom
And reveal the Kingdom
Reveal the Kingdom

Though we are strangers,
We must not appall
But rise to answer the call
T’is whose life compels us to serve in love
The same who died for us all.
And rose to be our strength, and carry through
The cross of grace, and bear the truth
May we live, may we live to

Exsiccatum est foenum, et cecidit flos;
Verbum autem Domini nostri manet in aeternum

Jonah

by Natalie Kendel

Listen here: http://www.box.net/shared/9eqi2ha4fyzg3sx1gu4u

Run, Jonah, run

Cross the lands and the sea

Run from a God ’cause he chose you to be

the last hopeful word to the City so tossed

so run, Jonah, run

Is it you who is lost?

Where are you going

and what do you seek?

Tossed by the waves of a holy critique

Come man of God

are you hiding from Him?

Maybe its time

that you learned how to swim

Where are you going, Jonah?

The Lord has called your name

For the sake of a City that might turn round again

Where are you running, Jonah?

You can outrun your call

But the love of the Lord it fills the Earth

You can’t outrun the Lord at all

Speak, Jonah, speak

for the people will know

Turn them around; to His mercy they go

Do you lay buried beneath the great whale

of all that you missed

and the lessons you failed

Runner, oh, runner your walls must be down

I know you are upset-

the facts that you found-

That God up in Heaven

will patiently wait for you and the city to stop running away

Where are you going, Jonah?

The Lord has called your name

For the sake of a city that might

turn you back again

Where are you running, Jonah?

You can outrun your call

But the Love of the Lord it fills up the Earth

You can’t outrun his love at all

For Such a Time as This

by Beckah Shae

Listen here: Beckah Shae – For Such A Time As This

I’m just an ordinary person,
With so much resistance and so many hindrances.
I’m just a common average woman,
With an ugly past, that keeps tryin’ to hold me back.
Limitations all surround me
And this world thinks that it’s drowning in hopelessness.

Then I hear you call my name
Out loud and I say yes!

Just a moment for a lifetime.
For such a time as this, I say yes!
I’ve been chosen to arise,
For such a time as this, and I say yes!

Alive awake alert, I know I don’t deserve,
Why I’m in this position,
But I’m here ready to serve.
Willing to lose it all, I’m answering your call.
Oh heart and soul please listen,

For the mandate must be heard.
Your grace and favor crown me,
And I need your strength around me,
‘Cause I still fear how hard it might be.

And what’s worth living for, if nothing is worth dying for?
I’m gonna make a stand, I’m gonna make an echo.
I’m gonna make some history, with His story!
Writing the pages of today to read about tomorrows change,
‘Cause I know I was made, for such a time as this.

Now More Than Ever

by Brandon Heath

Dig my hands into the earth
Sometimes I need You so bad, it hurts
I want You now more than ever

I’ve been living in a foreign land
Confession of a broken man
I want You now more than ever

The more I see, the more I want
The more I know, it doesn’t stop
Your beauty speaks to call me home
Now more than ever

The more I feel that You are here
The more the world disappears
And all I want is to be home
Now more than ever

So tell me something that I haven’t heard
I’ll be hanging on every word
I want You now more than ever

How long must You make me wait?
Give me hope, give me strength
I want You now more than ever

I will keep my eyes open
Keep my eyes open, face to the sky
I will keep my eyes open
Keep my eyes open for You

All At war

by Downhere
Listen here: Downhere – All At War

I’m learning to stand the more that I fall down,
It’s the law of inversion, and it’s all turned around,
And I’m staggered by the clash inside my soul,
So purposed for good but inclined for evil

It’s justice and mercy the old dichotomies,
All along the front lines of my heart in both doubt and belief
The sinner and saint, the old arch enemies,
All at war, in me

I was born depraved, but created for the divine,
With death in my bones, in my heart eternal life,
I’d love for Eden, but I’d kill for Rome,
I’m native in a land that is not my home

You are the beginning, and you are the end,
Into your great reversal, I am born again,
A beautiful redemption, you leverage even sin
In me your final victory, I know you’ll win

Into light, from the shadows,
Into life, from the grave,
Into love, Into love

Slow Your Breath Down

by Future of Forestry

Listen here: Future Of Forestry – Slow Your Breath Down

This chest is full of memories
Of gold and silver tears
I’ll give you more to own than
All of this
And I’ll give you more than years
For you were once a child of
Innocence
And I see you just the same
Your burdens couldn’t win or
Lose a thing
Oh, I’d tell you once
Again
But you’re always on
The run

Slow your breath down
Just take it slow
Find your heart now, oh
You can trust and love again
Slow your breath down, just take it slow
Find your smile now, oh
You can trust and love again

If you leave I’ll still be close to you
When all your fears rain down
I’ll take you back a thousand times again
I’ll take you as my own
I would sing you songs of innocence
‘Til the light of morning comes
‘Til the rays of gold and honey
Cover you
In the sweetness of the dawn
But you’re always on the run

You’re not alone
You’re now a part of me
You feel the cure
I’ll find the toil it brought you

Book of Days
by Enya
Listen to here: Enya – Book Of Days
One day, one night, one moment,
my dreams could be, tomorrow.
One step, one fall, one falter,
east or west, over earth or by ocean.
One way to be my journey,
this way could be my Book of Days.Ó lá go lá, mo thuras,
an bealach fada romham.
Ó oíche go hoíche, mo thuras,
na scéalta nach mbeidh a choích.No day, no night, no moment,
can hold me back from trying.
I’ll fly, I’ll fall, I’ll falter
I’ll find my day may be, Far and Away.
Far and Away.One day, one night, one moment,
with a dream to believe in.
One step, one fall, one falter,
find a new earth across a wide ocean.
This way became my journey,
this day ends together, Far and Away.
This day ends together, Far and Away.
Far and Away.

THE RESISTANCE (Josh Garrels)
.
Listen: http://joshgarrels.bandcamp.com/track/the-resistance
.
(Guys, the artist of the moment is Josh Garrels. He has produced his latest album and it is for free!
Feel free to download it!)
.
I was born into a system constructed for failure
It’s a sinking ship manned by drunken sailors
An escape artist behind the bars of a jailor
An asthmatic attack when we forgot the inhaler
If the shoe doesn’t fit what good is a tailor
In the midst of a crisis please cancel the gala
Without a symphony there’s no need for a prelude
To foreshadow what’s to come.
See the secret committees, commence with their meetings
To make red tape in response to simple questions
Questions threaten the perception of the beneficial systems
A pyramid scheme with it’s cogs and it’s pistons
Mechanization of men, making more and more
Live in a miserable exhistance
How can so few, claim so many victims
And this begs the question
My rest is a weapon against the oppression
Of mans obsession to control things
Look at the long line of make believe kings
The lord of the flies want’s you to kiss his ring
Follow new rules with invisible strings
And become a puppet in the diabolical scheme
How do good men become part of the regime
They don’t believe in resistance.

Hold fast like an anchor in the storm
We will not be moved

Lesson number one, overcome
Every fear of regret and confusion
It’s all illusion, delusion
Sent to disconnect the holy fusion
Of spirit and the flesh
Every mortal breath, is meant to bring forth fire
But only when the fear of death, gets consumed
On the funeral pier
So let the flames rise higher
Let every man be considered a liar
If he doubts the goodness and faithfulness of God
Itching ears will compulsively nod in approval
When unbelief is taught in all our temples and schools
But God can restrain the madness of a fool
He can bring His truth through the mouth of a mule
You can move an mountain without any tools
It just takes the faith of a little seed
to make a way through what might seem to be
Impossibility,
And the ability will match the occasion
The outcome will defy explanation
The liberation will not be televised
When it arrives like lightning in the skies

Hold fast like an anchor in the storm
For your love, we will rise and overcome
Through the fire

Hold fast my people and sing
Through peace and through suffering
All for the joy that it brings, to be free
It’s gonna cost us everything
To follow one Lord and King
True love endure everything
To be free

Hold fast, like an anchor in the storm
We will not be moved


A LITTLE’S ENOUGH (Angels and Airwaves)
When all is said and done
Will we still feel pain inside?
Will the scars go away with night?
Try to smile for the morning light
It’s like the best dream to have
Where every thing is not so bad
Every tear is so alone
Like God himself is coming home to sayI, I can do anything
If you want me here
And I can fix any thing
If you let me near
Where are those secrets now
That you’re too scared to tell
I’d whisper them all aloud
So you can hear yourselfGreen trees were the first sign
The deepest blue, the clearest sky
The silence came with the brightest eyes
And turned water into wine
The children ran to see
The parents stood in disbelief
And those who knew braced for the ride
The earth itself then came alive to sayI, I can do anything
If you want me here
And I can fix anything
If you let me near
Where are those secrets now
That you’re too scared to tell
I whisper them all aloud
So you can hear yourselfI’m sorry I have to say it but you look like you’re sad
Your smile is gone; I’ve noticed it bad
The cure is if you let in just a little more love
I promise you this, a little’s enough(Just a little…)
When all is said and done

THIS YEARS LOVE

David Gray – This Years Love

This years love had better last
Heaven knows it’s high time
And I’ve been waiting on my own too long
But when you hold me like you do
It feels so right
I start to forget
How my heart gets torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Feeling like you can’t go on

Turning circles when time again
It cuts like a knife oh yeah
If you love me got to know for sure
Cos it takes something more this time
Than sweet sweet lies
Before I open up my arms and fall
Losing all control
Every dream inside my soul
And when you kiss me
On that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain’t this life so sweet

This years love had better last
This years love had better last

So whose to worry
If our hearts get torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Don’t you know this life goes on
And won’t you kiss me
On that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain’t this life so sweet

This years love had better last
This years love had better last
This years love had better last
This years love had better last

I have known a pain so deep
But I know my faith will free me

But somewhere the sun is shining
And I’ll feel it shine on me
I’ll keep on tryin’, I’ll keep on tryin’

Cross that river (Cross that river)
Nothing’s stoppin’ me now

And when our hope was dying
You brought us healing
And now I got something
To tell my children I believe

VIENNA by the Fray 15/03/11

Listen: The Fray – Vienna

“Vienna”

The day’s last one-way ticket train pulls in
We smile for the casual closure capturing
There goes the downpour
There goes my fare thee well

There’s really no way to reach me
There’s really no way to reach me
There’s really no way to reach me
‘Cause I’m already gone

There’s so many words that we can say
Spoken upon long-distance melody
This is my hello
This is my goodness

There’s really no way to reach me
There’s really no way to reach me
There’s really no way to reach me
‘Cause I’m already gone

Maybe in five or ten yours and mine will meet again
Straighten this whole thing out
Maybe then honesty need not be feared as a friend or an enemy
But this is the distance
And this is my gameface

There’s really no way to reach me
There’s really no way to reach me
Is there really no way to reach me?
Am I already gone?
So this is your maverick
And this is Vienna

12/03/11 Better Days

Listen: Leeland – Brighter Days

Time keeps moving on
Through the sunshine and the storm
And my dreams are set in stone
And someday I’ll be who I want to be
For now I’ll wait
For the sun to shine again
And for now I’ll wait
For the rain to pass away

And I’m looking for the brighter days
When all my hurts seem to fade away
I’m looking for the brighter days to come my way

Faces come and faces go
But none seem to look my way
And walls have stood and walls have fallen
But my heart seems to wait
For now I’ll sit at the end of the road
And for now I’ll wait
At the end of the pathway

I’ll see the sun one day shine upon me
I’ll see the sun one day
And watch the nighttime turn to morning
But for now it all comes back around

11/03/11  In the Silence

Listen here: Jason Upton – In The Silence

Tired of telling you, you have me
When I know you really don’t
Tired of telling you I’ll follow
When I know I reallly won’t
Cause I’d rather stand here speechless
With no great words to say
If my silence is more truthful
And my ears can hear how to walk in your way

In the silence
You are speaking
In the quiet I can feel the fire
And it’s burning, burning deeply
Burning all that it is that you desire to be silent, in me

Oh Jesus can you hear me?
My soul is screaming out
And my broken will cries teach me
What your Kingdom’s all about
Unite my heart to fear you,
To fear your holy name
Adn create a life of worship
In the spirit and truth of your loving ways

09/03/11  Cannot Keep You

Listen here: Gungor – Cannot Keep You

They tried to keep you in a tent

they could not keep you in their temple

or any of their idols

to see and understand

we cannot keep you in a church

we cannot keep you in a Bible

its just another idol

to box you in

They could not keep you in their walls

we cannot keep you in ours either

for your are so much greater

Who is like the Lord?

The Maker of the heavens

Who dwells with the poor?

he lifts them from the ashes

and he seats them amoung princes

Who is like the Lord?

We’re tried to keep you in our tents

We’re tried to keep you in our temples

We’re worshipped all our idols

we want all that to end

so we will find you in the streets

and we will find you in the prisons

and even in our Bibles

and churches

Who is like the Lord?

the Maker of the heavens

who dwells with the poor

he lifts them from the ashes

and seats them among princes

who is like the Lord?

We cannot contain

cannot contain the glory of your name

We cannot contain

cannot contain

the glory of your name

Who is like the Lord

you raised me from the ashes and healed me from my blindness

who is like the Lord?

29/02/11 Only Hope

Listen: Switchfoot – Only Hope
There’s a song that’s inside of my soul
It’s the one that I’ve tried to write over and over again
I’m awake and in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over and over and over again

So I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know You’re my only hope

You sing to me of the song of the stars
Of Your galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again
When it feels like my dreams are so far
You sing to me of the plans that You have for me over again

And I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours
I know You’re my only hope

I give You my empathy, I’m giving You all of me
I want Your symphony singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs I’m giving it back

And I lay my head back down
And I lift my hands and pray to be only Yours
I pray to be only Yours, I pray to be only Yours
I know You’re my only hope

12/02/11   NO MORE HEROES

Listen: Westlife – No More Heroes

When the waves are crashing down
Pulling you to sorrow
I will sail you back to shore
When there are no more heroes
Over under, near or far
I’ll be right beside you
Standing here with open arms
When there are no more heroes
Chorus:
And through it all
And through it all
When you’re tired and you stumble I will carry you
When starlight falls, my love will guide you home
You’ll never be alone
When there are no more heroes
It was you who showed me how
Brought me back to glory
Through hopelessness and darkest days
It was breath you gave me
Chorus x 3
When there are no more heroes

12/02/11  LOVE IS NOT A FIGHT

Listen: Warren Barfield – Love Is Not A Fight – Exclusive Movie Version

Love is not a place
To come and go as we please
It’s a house we enter in
And then commit to never leave
So lock the door behind you
Throw away the key
We’ll work it out together
Let it bring us to our knees

Love is a shelter in a raging storm
Love is peace in the middle of a war
If we try to leave may God send angels to guard the door
No, love is not a fight but it’s something worth fighting for

To some, love is a word that they can fall into
But when they’re falling out
Keeping that word is hard to do

Love is a shelter in a raging storm
Love is peace in the middle of a war
If we try to leave may God send angels to guard the door
No, love is not a fight but it’s something worth fighting for

Love will come to save us, if we’ll only call
He will ask nothing from us, but demand we give our all

Love is a shelter in a raging storm
Love is peace in the middle of a war
If we try to leave may God send angels to guard the door
No, love is not a fight but it’s something worth fighting for

I would fight for you, would you fight for me?
It’s worth fighting for.

12/12/10 THE RIDDLE

Listen: Five For Fighting – The Riddle

There was a man back in ’95
Whose heart ran out of summers
But before he died, I asked him
?Wait, what’s the sense in life?
Come over me, Come over me?

He said, “Son why you got to sing that tune?
Catch a Dylan song or some eclipse of the moon?
Let an angel swing and make you swoon
Then you will see, you will see”

Then he said, “Here’s a riddle for you
Find the answer: There’s a reason for the world
You and I”

Picked up my kid from school today
Did you learn anything? ?Cause in the world today
You can’t live in a castle far away
Now talk to me, come talk to me

He said, “Dad I’m big, but we’re smaller than small
In the scheme of things, well we’re nothing at all
Still every mother’s child sings a lonely song
So play with me, come play with me”

?And hey Dad, here’s a riddle for you
[- From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/f/five-for-fighting-lyrics/the-riddle-lyrics.html -]
Find the answer: There’s a reason for the world
You and I?

I said, “Son for all I’ve told you
When you get right down to the
Reason for the world who am I?”

There are secrets that we still have left to find
There have been mysteries from the beginning of time
There are answers we’re not wise enough to see
He said, ?You looking for a clue? I love you free?

The batter swings and the summer flies
As I look into my angel’s eyes
A song plays on while the moon is hiding over me
Something comes over me

I guess we’re big and I guess we’re small
If you think about it man you know we got it all
‘Cause we’re all we got on this bouncing ball
And I love you free, I love you freely

Here’s a riddle for you
Find the answer: There’s a reason for the world
You and I

10/12/10 THIS = LOVE

Listen: The Script – This = Love

It’s in the eyes of the children
As they leave for the very first time
And it’s in the heart of the soldier
As he takes a bullet on the front line
It’s in the face of a mother
As she takes the force of a blow
And its in the hands of the father yeah
As he works his fingers to the bone yeah

I’m standing under a white flag oh
Can you see me oh, can you see me oh
I’m standing for everything we have oh
Can you hear me oh, can you hear me

This is why we do it this is worth the pain
This is why we bow down and get back up again
This is where the heart lies, this is from above
Love is this, this is love

Love is why we do it love is worth the pain
Love is why we fall down, get back up again
Love is where the heart lies love is from above
Love is this, this is love

It’s in the soul of a city
What it does after it crumbles and burns
And it’s in the blood of a hero

Bridge (rap)
If you could be anywhere that you wanted to be
With anyone that you wanted to be with
Do anything that you wanted to do
What would it be and who would it be with you
Time flies but you’re the pilot
It moves real fast but you’re the driver
You may crash and burn sometimes

This is why we do it this is worth the pain
This is where we bow down get back up again
This is where the heart lies this is from above
Love is this, this is love
Love is why we do it, love is worth the pain
Love is why we fall down get back up again
Love is where the heart lies love is from above
Love is this, this is love

(This is love!)


30/11/10 WALKING ON THE STARS

Listen: Group 1 Crew – Walking On The Stars

I see my life sometimes and I ask why

My heart became like stone and turned to ice

Tell me what have I become

But you came just in time like a shooting star

Across my universe out of the dark

Tell me what have I become

Take me away

You save me from myself and all I do

Cause life just ain’t the same when I’m with you

I can climb the sky (you got me) walking on the stars

I see life through new set of eyes

Set on someone different that I never realized

Outside my mind is a lost world that lies

But step into my thoughts you’ll believe you can fly

Your words like wings gravity they defy

My heart like a leaf on the wind catchin’ rides

They say we can’t make it at least we gotta try

We make too much sense to foolishly pass it by

So I’m taking a rainbow up to the 5th floor

Steppin out to see that you’re really worth more

And I see our love in 3D

No more 2 dimensional worries

Climb until the sky don’t exist no more

That’s when I’ll knock knock on your front door

Open to the possibilities I ignored

But I know now exactly what our love was meant for

Lord, take me away

You save me from myself and all I do

Cause life just ain’t the same when I’m with you

I can climb the sky (you got me) walking on the stars

(Now) I can see my life from way up high

And all my troubles I once knew I left behind

I can climb the sky (you got me) walking on the stars

And I can see much more clear

When I’m lost in your atmosphere

You pull me close to the place

Where you’re always waiting

So I won’t stop, the walls are down

Make my way at the speed of sound

Hold me now

Hold me now

Lord, take me away

You save me from myself and all I do

Cause life just ain’t the same when I’m with you

I can climb the sky (you got me) walking on the stars

(Now) I can see my life from way up high

And all my troubles I once knew I left behind

I can climb the sky (you got me) walking on the stars

27/11/10   MADE TO LOVE

Listen: TobyMac – Made To Love


Verse 1
The dream is fading, now I’m staring at the door
I know its over cause my feet have hit the cold floor
Check my reflection, I ain’t feelin what I see
It’s no mystery
Whatever happened to a passion I could live for?
What became of the flame that made me feel more?
And when did i forget that…

Chorus
I was made to love You
I was made to find You
I was made just for You
Made to adore You
I was made to love
And be loved by You
You were here before me
You were waiting on me
And you said you’d keep me
Never would you leave me
I was made to love
and be loved by You

Verse 2
The dream’s alive with my eyes opened wide
Back in the ring You’ve got me swinging for the grand prize
I feel the haters spittin vapors on my dreams
But I still believe
I’m reachin out, reachin up, reachin over
I feel a breeze cover me called Jehovah
And Daddy I’m on my way
Cause I was made to love…

Chorus

I was made to love You
I was made just for you Made to adore you

I was made to love and be loved by you

You were here before You were waiting on me
And you said you’d keep
Me never would you leave
I was made to love and be loved by you

Bridge
Anything I would give up for You
Everything, I’d give it all away
(Repeat 3x)

I was made to love You, I was made to love You
I was made to love You, I was made to find you
I was made to love You, Made just for You
I was made to love You, Made just for You
I was made to love You, Made just for You
I was made to love You, I will love by you

26/11/10   FIX YOU

LISTEN: Coldplay – Fix You

When you try your best but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

25/11/10   NEW SOUL

LISTEN: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtslwxL_Leg

I’m a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit bout how to give and take.
But since I came here,
Felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la…

I’m a young soul
In this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit bout what is true and fake
But why all this hate?
Try to communicate
Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la…

This is a happy end
‘Cause you don’t understand
Everything you have done
Why’s everything so wrong?
This is a happy end
Come and give me your hand
I’ll take you far away

I’m a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit bout how to give and take.
But since I came here,
Felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

I’m a new soul… (la, la, la, la,…)
In this very strange world…
Every possible mistake
Possible mistake
Every possible mistake
Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes…
Take take take take take… take a mistake
Take, take a mistake
Take, take a mistake
(oh oh oh oh…)

2/11/10  CATHEDRAL MADE OF PEOPLE

Listen: Downhere – Cathedral Made Of People

If they shut down the churces where would you go
If they melted all the stain glass windows
Replaced every sanctuary, with a condo
Where would you go 2x

Chorus
We are a cathedral made of people
In a Kingdom that the eyes can see
We’re a house, we are the bride
Where God’s Spirit lives inside and nothing ever can stand against her

If they burn all the bibles what would you know
If they ………how would you grow
And declare your devotion to the criminal
What would you know 2x

Chorus

Instumental

Chorus

When they throw you in prison what will you do
When they hate you for the things you know are true
They can tear down this temple but they can’t touch you

Chorus

21/11/10   SCIENCE AND FAITH

LISTEN: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-w7cHJnqwm8

Tried to break love to a science
In an act of pure defiance
I broke her heart.
And as I pulled apart her theory
As I watched her growing weary
I pulled her apart
Having heavy conversations
About the furthest constellations of our souls. ooh
And we’re just trying to find some meaning
In the things that we believe in
But we got some ways to go.
Of all of the things that she’s ever said
She goes and says something that just knocks me dead.

You won’t find faith or hope down a telescope
You won’t find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything, down to chemicals
But you can’t explain a love like ours.

Woohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real.
Woohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real.

I tried pushing evolution
As the obvious conclusion of the start.
But it was for my own amusement
Saying love was an illusion of a hopeless heart.
Of all of the things that she’s ever said
She goes and says something that knocks me dead.

You won’t find faith or hope down a telescope
You won’t find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything, down to chemicals
But you can’t explain a love like ours.

Woohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real.
Woohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real.

Of all of the things that she’s ever said
She goes and says something that just knocks me dead

You won’t find faith or hope down a telescope
You won’t find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything, down to chemicals
But you can’t explain a love like ours.

Woohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeh this is real
Ooohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeh this is real

11/11/10 HERO (Abandon)

Listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uyv1jUDLY3s

He walked the dirty streets. Famous for nothing.

He said “come follow me” and they came.
A face like all the rest.
But something was different.
The Son of God would lead the way.
And soon they all would say.

There He goes – a hero. A savior to the world.
Here He stands with scars in His hands.
With love He gave His life so we could be free.
The Savior of the world.

He spoke with clarity. Walked across the sea.
A single word would calm the storm.
His touch could heal the sick, but He was called a hypocrite.
Laid behind the stone. His death was shortly mourned. He left the curtain torn.

There He goes – a hero. A savior to the world.
Here He stands with scars in His hands.
With love he gave His life so we could be free.
The Savior of the world.

He choose to take the cross. Shed tears for the lost, the broken, and the needy.
Forgiving those who were and will be.
The angel made it clear. He told them have no fear.
He’s not here. He’s not here!

There He goes – The Hero. The Savior to the world.
Here He stands with scars in His hands.
With love He gave his life so we could be free.
The Savior of the world. The Savior of the world. The Savior of the world.

10/11/10 FORGIVE ME (Group 1 Crew)

Watch Here

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxyzA0zZGXI&feature=fvst

Father, I’m going through some heavy things
It seems like this world ain’t getting any better
The more we try to get closer to You
The farther we run from Your throne

I’ve spent so many nights wonderin’ when will it end
When will the day come when happiness begins
I’m running the race but it seems too hard to win
I’m sick of mourning my stomach is throwing up in the morning

I’m calling for help and watching it melt away
My heart’s been put on display and put away
In many ways, many times I told myself it was ok
And anger was the price that was paid
While these faded dreams just screamed to bring them home

The burden was too heavy I kept running from the throne
I can’t take it any longer
I can taste my spirit hunger
God please help me get home

[Chorus:]
Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I’m not scared cause You’re holding my breath
I only fear that I don’t have enough time left
To tell the world that there’s no time left, Lord please
Lord though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I’m not scared cause You’re holding my breath
I only fear that I don’t have enough time left
To tell the world that there’s no time left

I’ve come to terms that I’m burning both sides of the rope
And I’m hoping that self-control would kick in before I’m choking off
The sin that be destroying every fiber I got
I need the Lord in every way I’ll never make it I’m not
Going back to the way I was before Christ in my life
I couldn’t do it I would lose it there’s no point to the fight
And I’m writing this song, for the people who don’t belong
I pray away the pain you feel from all the things that went wrong
Inside a life that’s filled with anger and disappointment
Cause daddy treated you weaker than all of the other kids
It’s annoying and I feel for all of you who wanna give up
You feel stuck I feel the same way Lord help us stay up
You couldn’t pay me to abandon the idea of true hope
That I could make it through this life into a place where there’s no crying
I’m dying to find You with open arms when I go
Knowing You love me and You waiting to give rest to my soul

Lord I don’t know what I’m struggling for
There’s go to be more
Than this life I know
But still I’m here fighting to never give up
I find strength in Your love
And You will see me through
