A Way For Us

A heart lowered down into an open grave

Is there another way? Is there another way?

And the nails pound harder in the coffin laid

Come beat again, Oh breath again

 

Rise up from the dark I see a light ahead

A way for us, A way for us

Rise up from the grave / hear life call

A way for us, A way for us

 

A heart buried underneath a concrete bed

Is there another way? Is there another way?

And the rain pours

Heavy on the weighted stone

Come beat again, Oh breathe again

 

No hound from hell can keep us down

We hold the light

No force of hell can bury

What we hold inside

No hound from hell can keep us down

We hold the light

No force of hell can bury what we carry

/WE RISE/


Fire Inside

Eyes ahead / I catch my breath

Open heart /An open hand

You come to me

Life begins as dawn is breaking

We watch the sky / watch for the signs

Feel your heart so close to mine

And I know that I

I can still keep moving

 

See how you keep pulling me in

Given me the freedom

And the strength to carry on

 

It was the fire inside you

It was the fire I found

Gave me strength to stand and fight

And the strength to carry on

 

Hand in hand / side by side

Are hearts are fires burning bright

We will face the night through the unknown

Keep on moving

Rise and fall as darkness fades

Allowing love to permeate

Every part of us

Life begins as dawn is breaking


Cannonball

Restless and wild

Roaming the mountainside

 

Where are we now?

Where do we go from here?

 

Shot out of the barrel like a cannonball

Shot out of the dark / I'm a cannonball

Shot out of the barrel with a bright light

Shot out with a holy fire

 

Did you resign?

Or did you decide to go?

 

If you could run

If you could fly from here...


Another Day

Finding my way, finding my way back home

All the years have seemed so long

Like steering in the dark

Call me by name

Call me out over distant waves

Lead me where the lighthouse stands

Upon the shoreline

 

Here I am / Here I stand

Here I am

There's life and hope tomorrow

Here I am / Here I stand

It's another day

Another day for hope to come

 

Bring me home / bring me through the storm

Though the waves misbehaved

They're calming down

Keep my heart

Keep my heart and lead me on

Lead me where the lighthouse stands

Upon the shoreline 

 

Though the darkness fights in protest

We face the night for light will come

Clouds are breaking / Hearts awaking

Light will overcome

There's a song on the horizon

Waiting to be sung

With all of my breath I will sing it


Work gets heavy when the heart gets heavy

Drop the load by the wayside

Keep your head up

When the day gets fed up

And the night gets longer

 

Steady, steady as you go

 

Keep that devil off your back

Don't give him any slack - cry Jesus

Lord knows how the story goes 

He'll carry all the load - come Jesus

 

I'm gonna run and let the Spirit fly

Steady


The stars are looking out

Across the sky

I never could believe that I’d

Be living in a moment quite like

The one I’m living now

 

With you by my side

I was given new wings to fly

High off of the mountain

My spirit soars

 

You got a love that’s higher

You got a heart that’s stronger

And I know your love

Is from above

It’s love from another world

 

I see it all

The life behind your eyes

I never could believe that I’d

Be living in a moment quite like

The one I’m in with you

 

I never can deny

We were meant to be and I

Can see an even brighter spark

Light the road beneath

 

Closer than skin and bone

Feel your heart

Completely overcome

Like heaven has come to earth

Love From Another World


Redeemer, redeem the day

The day I watched it all go up in flames

A heavy, heaving sigh

Is all this heart can give as a reply

I'm buried here below

Beneath the ground, a hungry sinking hole

Daily on my knees I'm praying

"Lord, deliver me"

 

Oh, will I run or stay in the fight?

Just a glimmer of light I find

When I keep hoping

And I know now

A much mightier hand than mine

Comes reaching to save

The very life of me

 

Now I see from the start

I was never alone

Here by my side 'til forevermore

 

Redeemer / We meet again

With more to lose

But that much more to gain

The stakes are getting high

And the ground below

Is falling before my eyes

Now I See


See how time like wind blows by

See the sun / Her head lays down

Now as we’re dreaming in our beds

We bleed the hours and years go by

 

As our lives go on and on

So our love goes on and on

 

Did I ever say you’re loved enough

When you needed love the most

Did I ever hold you strong enough

Before I had to let you go

 

If only I could keep the moment

That feels like miles away

I wish that I held you long enough

Before I let you go

 

See the world so bright in your eyes

See your face / So warm with life

See you now, moving beautiful and free

Memories caught up in a dream

Before I Let You Go


There’s a dragon on my doorstep

And it came in

Breathing a tantalizing request

How can I refuse when its been

So hospitable to me in the past?

 

Now it’s drinking all my glory

Now it’s drinking all my glory


 

Come in Father, come in light

Break into this soul of mine

Captured fantasies I’ll yield

to the Son where I will heal

 

The dragon is gone now

But it left me a note and it said

"I’ll be back again

When you need me the most"

 

Frustration, temptation

This sucking of truth

I’m letting it go, I’m letting it go

I’m letting it go

 

I’ll fight it

 

Come in Father, come in light

Break into this soul of mine

Captured fantasies I’ll yield

to the Son where I will heal

 

Though my soul be strong

The spirit is stronger

The spirit is stronger

Let it rise

COME IN


Neverland

Sun falls upon me

Kissing my face as I awake from sleep

 

Days have their orders, still marching on 

No matter what this life might bring

 

Calm the storm

All of heaven opens up

And I awake to the morning

Awake to the morning light

 

Time like an ocean / Ever in motion

Yet here we are

 

Breathe in this moment

You and I alone

On the shores of Neverland

 


Slowly comes the winter frost

Overtakes the valley

Clinging to the earth

Until spring breaks free

 

Arise

 

Under the ever-watchful eye

Of the Maker

The life asleep inside the ground

Awakens

Arise
