Lyrics

You're romantic
but I've seen it get used
for selfish purposes
Don't be tragic
I'm just talking straight to you

Such a thin thread holds us all together, it seems
So if you're wondering exactly what to say...

Risk it all put it on the line
Tell the truth while being kind
You did what you had to do
So You can rest - you passed the test

Risk it all put it on the line
Tell the truth while being kind
Then the river's course you'll see
You will know it was meant to be

Some days
You don't know who you are
But maybe you know what you're not
and that's a lot

Every door that opens
needs the right key
Every heart that follows love is free

Risk it all put it on the line
Tell the truth while being kind
Then you'll grow in love, you'll see
You can rest, you passed the test

Risk it all put it on the line
Tell the truth while being kind
Then the river's course you'll see
You will know it was meant to be

Hope for the moment
Hope for the year
Full moon is coming
Harvest is here

Risk it all put it on the line
Tell the truth while being kind
Then you'll grow in love you'll see
You will be what you're meant to be

Risk it all put it on the line
Tell the truth while being kind
Then the river's course you'll see
You will know and you'll be free
Oh, You'll be free
You'll be free
You'll be free

Lyrics

Yeah… the morning opens up a thousand possibilities…
if I just could see it…
Maybe…if I take a ride to a quiet place that’s deep…
I just might hear it…

There’s a time to wait and a time to go
The master plan we may never know
A time to bloom and a time to grow
So just keep prayin and walking

Like the rain you wash away my tears
Like the sun you dry the rain
Like the wind you blow the clouds from here
And cover me with grace

Yeah, just another lonely test sometimes I fall and break sometimes…
Oh Lord …won’t you pick up the pieces…

Take the day, change the way I think and see .. you want what’s best for me…
oh Lord… help me to believe it

There’s a time to sit
And a time to stand
all I know is everybody needs a helping hand
Some doors will open
Some will close
Some things only God knows

Like the rain you wash away my tears
Like the sun you dry the rain
Like the wind you blow the clouds from here
And cover me with grace

…and cover me with grace…

There’s a time to wait and a time to go
The master plan we may never know
A time to bloom and a time to grow
So just keep praying and walking

Like the rain you wash away my tears
Like the sun you dry the rain
Like the wind you blow the clouds from here
And cover me with grace

Holy Grace
Holy Grace
Holy Grace

Lyrics

Sometimes I need to hide my eyes
Cause if you could see my eyes
You would only see
My heart is always breaking
Yes my heart is always breaking
Oh…

Sometimes I need to shade my words
Cause if you could hear my words
You would only hear
That my heart is always breaking
Yes my heart is always breaking
Oh…

Time it strips away who we think we are
And reveals what is really there

Time it takes us to a place beyond
To a life that we have only dreamed…


So dream sweetly…

Sometimes I need to hide my eyes
Cause if you could see my eyes
You would only see that
My heart is always breaking
Yes, my heart is always breaking
Oh...

Lyrics

Rough Edges

There’s a laugh missing, there’s just one pair of shoes
Look around for them, only gets more confused

But there’s a blue sky on the rise
And as those white lies sink and die
Then the haze begins to clear – and you are near

Rough edges – guaranteed
Imperfection, yeah that’s you & me babe
Fragile cracks let in the light – take away the night

Took a walk outside, to the edge of the sea
Saw those waves crashing, trying hard to be free

But then a mist did start to rise
And I thought about your eyes
And the love we tried to share –is it there somewhere?

Rough edges – guaranteed
Imperfection, yeah that’s you & me babe
Fragile cracks let in the light – take away the night

Too busy to be human
Too scared to be divine
Don’t you know you’ll always be a friend of mine

Rough edges – guaranteed
Imperfection, yeah that’s you & me babe
Fragile cracks let in the light – take away the night
Take away the night
Take away the night
Take away the night

Lyrics

Come Free Your Heart

Love—is a remedy we all need, can’t you see, oh let’s come together
Love—no more tragedies, on your knees, if you please, helping each other
Love—is so flexible, understands, holds your hand, sensing the other
Love—shakes the mountains, bold and steep, deep like sleep, warm like an oven

There’s no time to back down
On the line, facing the crowd
You’ll be strong, I know you will
Shake the pain, you’re golden

Come free your heart – fly like the sparrow
Come free your heart—clouds break from the Son
Come free your heart—fly to the rainbow
Come free your heart—you’re holy

Love—is discovery, feel the breeze, a new land, testing the waters
Love—you will be alright, winding road, mystery, hold to the moral
Love—is a remedy we all need, can’t you see, let’s come together
Love—ain’t no masquerade, clear as day, here to stay, true like a brother

You got lost, now turn away
Break these chains starting today
Time to heal, time heals all wounds
Shake the pain, you’re golden

Come free your heart – fly like the sparrow
Come free your heart—clouds break from the Son
Come free your heart—fly to the rainbow
Come free your heart—you’re holy

Lyrics

Be Next to Me (Everlasting Life)

There’s a battle up ahead
I’m in the desert all alone
Seems no way around it
And it’s the only road to home

You’ve been so good to me
So many times before
There’s no reason to doubt you now—
Love will open up the door

Refrain:

I found the faith I need to grow
It’s in my heart, just let it show
A million angels sing to you – I will too

Now I can look ahead and see
The face of Hope, serenity
Father and Son and Spirit be
Next to me
Be next to me


Keep your lessons in my pocket
Hold your wisdom in my head
When darkness tries to hurt me
Hold up the truth instead

Sweet water runs outside
And flows into the sea
Wash us all - lead us by your call
Bring us back and set us free

I found the faith I need to grow
It’s in my heart, just let it show
A million angels sing to you – I will too

Now I can look ahead and see
The face of Hope, serenity
Father and Son and Spirit be
Next to me
Be next to me

I’m really thrown - it’s unexpected but expected to move on;
In a minute I’m within it – nothing’s real, not earth or stone;

Travel under, travel over, find my balance - where I’m from;
On this table, spin the rattle - shut the noise out of my home;

Keep the faith, believe the truth, let Jesus set the captives free;
That’s the love we seek—the peace, the joy, the hope - the rest for me;

Something new and something real
Not based on just how I feel
Substance of a strength so strong
Everlasting life goes on
..and on and on and on...

Lyrics

Survival

Awakening
To everything
Can’t hide anymore
Tell me what’s in store
Make the choice preserve your sanity

It’s a case of survival (you're my survival)
It’s a case of survival (you're my survival)
Oh, I won’t be the same
It’s a case of survival (you're my survival)
You're my survival

Look up and see
What’s ahead of me
Walk through the pain
Escape the chain
Our tears open doors to mysteries

It’s a case of survival (you're my survival)
It’s a case of survival (you're my survival)
Oh, I won’t be the same
It’s a case of survival (you're my survival)
You're my survival

What do we know
Humble will grow
Make the choice preserve your sanity

It’s a case of survival (you're my survival)
It’s a case of survival (you're my survival)
Oh, I won’t be the same
It’s a case of survival (you're my survival)
You're my survival

Lyrics

There’s A New World Comin’

I’m not a prophet
I’m a farmer
I just tend the land

All your horses
All your armour
Turn my field into a bed of sand

But one day everything you see will change
Sweet Heaven’s call will split the night from day

There’s a new world coming
There’s a new world coming
There’s a new world coming
Get ready yeah -get ready yeah - get ready yeah

I got no money
I got no power
I live by one command

So take your Ego
And your violence
Only love will rule my hand

Can you make the seasons change?
Can you count the drops of rain?
Can you send the morning dew?
Can you hear me like I hear you?

There’s a new world coming
There’s a new world coming
There’s a new world coming
Get ready yeah - get ready yeah - get ready yeah

Can you build a mountain plain?
Can you count the seeds of grain?
Are you worthy, are you brave?
Only humble people pray…

There’s a new world coming
There’s a new world coming
There’s a new world coming
Get ready yeah - get ready yeah - get ready yeah

Lyrics

Once Again

Never was good at living in the past
don’t want to look back—
but the memories overwhelm my mind today


Cause you were here & that is real

and all I think & do and feel

is colored by the words you had to say

You promised one day you’d be coming back for me
To bring me where you are
I can’t see that far—but I want to go there

I will see you
Touch and breathe you
I will meet you once again
Soon together
Love forever
I will hold you once again

Your love remains here in this place
this bread & wine become your face
You’re in me, and our spirits intertwine
Our time is short but the road is long
I’ll take this time to linger on our journey
it’s a mystery divine

I know that one day you’ll be coming back -- for me
To lead me where you are
I can’t see that far—but I want to go there

I will see you
Touch and breathe you
I will meet you once again
Soon together
Love forever
I will hold you once again – once again

(GUITAR SOLO)

You give me hope to live and make it through each day
Your love is made to give—to give it all away—oh

I will see you
Touch and breathe you
I will meet you once again
Soon together
Love forever
I will hold you once again
once again…once again…once again…once again…once again

Story

I had written this song when one of my children was small. The school needed a fundraiser, so I went into the studio with drummer Steve DeGeorge and we walked out with this. A big thank you to Mike Ferretti, one of the fastest engineers I've ever worked with.

Lyrics

A Mother’s Song

In a couple days you'll go to school
count 2 + 2 , learn the golden rule
mix blue & green
create a scene
with all your new found friends

I wish that I could live it for you
take the pain & hurt
but that is not the plan
you must become a man
in your own time and way

You will have tomorrow
I had yesterday
You will have tomorrow...
but we both have today

Oh, skateboard child you keep busy all day
on the run, all in fun
then someone lets you down
I can see your frown
covers the clouds so grey

This laundry lady has a lot to give
you can take it or leave it
I was once a kid
lots & lots to do
in the world so new--
but know, baby, I love you

You will have tomorrow
I had yesterday
You will have tomorrow...
but we both have today

Oh, firstborn son you're a growing tree
may your heart know truth may your heart be free
on my knees I pray
in the too short day
that's what I want for you

Look inside and see the good
wonder why and know that answers come in many ways
many ways

You will have tomorrow
I had yesterday
You will have tomorrow...
but we both have today
