Lyrics

I see five little boys in faded overalls in a picture frame

And they're staring at me and leaning back on an old Model A

And one is my Grandpa.

And my Mama says that you worked real hard and life wasn't easy

But all I see is your fishing poles and the redwood trees

And it looks fun to me.

Chorus:

Tell me the tale, take me where you've been 

And I'll go too in my imagination

When I grow up, gonna be like you

Grandpa fly... fly me to the moon.

 

We go walking out through the woods, hand in hand

And I hear stories of people you knew and places you've been

That set me dreaming.

Like reaching the stars on a Blackbird's wings and sailing through the sky

Pressing on to your goals through courage and faith and claiming that prize,

Your life is written on mine.

Repeat chorus:

Bridge:

Oh these memories that you've given me will carry me through time

And the measure of a Man of Faith, is in the legacy he leaves behind

 

Repeat Chorus 2 X

Lyrics

There was a farmer's daughter who had starry blue eyes

Where the rolling fields of prairie, touched the endless sky

She knew the land she came from, and that a farmer's wife she'd be

Then came a young barnstormer who swept her off her feet

 

She said goodbye to childhood dreams and said "I'll make your dreams my own

Soaring where the wind blows, your home will be my home"

The wind-swept plains beneath them, they crossed the Kansas sky

Giving wings to farmers' earthbound feet, a dollar fifty ride

chorus:

When the wind blows in Autumn

And the wild geese fly away

It is then that I'll remember...

There came a day his country called and he left for foreign shores

Flying now for freedom in the horror of the war

A hero's cross pinned to his chest, but an angry wound inside

Secrets that she never told, but the tears came at night

 

When the wind blows in Autumn 

And the wild geese fly away

It is then that I'll remember...

A tender heart but a spine of steel, full of laughter, full of faith

Her daughter was my mother and their blood runs in my veins

She left us when the corn was high on a sleepy summer's day

Too young to die in the prime of life, like a bird she flew away

 

And all I have to remember her is this necklace made of glass

This emerald green, my history, and I wear it like a badge.

Sometimes I wonder who I'd be if she hadn't left so soon

Silent plains and empty skies... fare thee well... Virginia Ruth.

Lyrics

This road feels familiar, been this way a time or two

Someday I'll remember the grace that brought me through

This road feels so  lonely, I have stumbled with my cross

Mercy from kind travelers giving voice to the words of God

And every step has been planned for me

On this road I'm traveling

chorus:

And I am following the Light that leads me on

Suddenly I find my fear is gone

This road I'm traveling

Is leading me home

This road is unfamiliar, never thought I'd end up here

Just beyond the darkness daylight comes when I persevere

This road is redefining, blessed broken, warm embrace

Like a great unveiling, fewer answers but deeper faith

And every step has been planned for me

You were always there, carrying me

chorus:

And I am following the Light that leads me on

Suddenly I find my fear is gone

Cause this road I'm traveling 

Is leading me home

Bridge:

Stumbling steps I'm moving forward

Trusting You to show the way

These obstacles are overwhelming

I just need a little sign...

Lyrics

An honest look in the mirror, there's forgetting who we are

In a moment without make-believe, revealing every line and every scar

Driven by our empty-places, we try and cover up what is

All these efforts fall like ashes, masquerade that turns to dust

 

Rearrange the chairs on the deck of a ship that's going down

Painting up the walls of a house that's in the middle of a burning town

We're only fooling ourselves.

 

Some days I cannot see You, some days I hardly hear Your voice

What is this hazy land I've traveled to, me and my unfaithful heart?

In the land of good intentions, surrounded by these hollow smiles

I'm a traitor if I'm broken, wear the mask and close your eyes

 

This aching that I feel, reminding what is real and what is fleeting

Causing me to see that His desire for me is my freedom

 

It's a wonder, it's a mystery, how You love me... 

Even now, even now...

Rest

Lyrics

Stand at the Crossroads and wait, 

And look for the Ancient Way, and walk in it,

And you'll find rest.

When you can't see the road that lies ahead

And your heart is burdened down and filled with dread,

Heavy laden, but He gives rest.

 

He gives rest, no need to worry

Let it go, nothing to lose

He gives rest, what's the hurry?

Only God makes deserts bloom.

Building a Kingdom made of sand,

And grasping as it's slipping from your hand

Seek first His heart, and He will bless.

 

He gives rest, no need to worry

Let it go, nothing to lose

He gives rest, what's the hurry

By His hand the desert blooms

(repeat)

Stand at the Crossroads and wait

And look for the Ancient Way and walk init,

And you'll find rest.

Lyrics

I feel a little lost these days, like I'm missing part of me

I'm wondering just where my heart went, 

If it's gone or just misplaced

I guess it hit me harder than I knew, 

And the shrapnel found it's mark

I'm stumbling round, dazed and confused

Wondering where to start

Chorus:

Pieces are all I seem to find these days

Broken, I'm hoping that I will mend one day

Pieces

We run reckless through a battleground

And it's startling to find

We're more fragile and under-fire

Than we ever realized

I guess it hit us harder than we knew

And the shrapnel found it's mark

Now we're stumbling round, dazed and confused

Wondering where to start

Chorus:

Pieces are all I seem to find these days

Broken, I'm hoping that I will mend,

That I will mend one day.

 

I don't know if hearts mend in time

All I know is Someone's mending mine.

 

Chorus

Lyrics

Oh my heart, where have you been? You've been so hard to find

You've given in with reluctant consent, to sleepwalk through this life,

On the edge, but coming alive. 

Mountains ahead, but I'm ready to climb...

Chorus:

Wild Country,

Freedom's in the wind

And it's blowing through  me

Wild Country,

Territory unknown 

And there's no place I'd rather be

I'd don't know what lies ahead

But I know I  must begin

Leave behind the noise in my head

And learn to breathe again

 

On the edge but coming alive

Mountain's ahead and I'm ready to climb

 

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:

Blinded by the veil of complacency

Rocking my heart to sleep

Now I'm standing on the edge of the Wilderness

I will follow You, where ever You lead...

Lyrics

In the hollow of a hillside, hidden by the trees

Stands a simple weathered house, that means the world to me

And the love that reside there, is a living, growing thing

That wraps its arms around my weary soul.

 

'Neath the faded walls and windows its foundation will stand

And weather any storm, cause it was built by loving hands

Filled with loving memories that are precious to me

And tell me who I am and what I'll be.

Chorus:

Where there is  peace, there is contentment

On the roads of life, this is journey's end

When the strong winds blow, I've got shelter

Cause there's no place, no  place like home.

 

Oh this life can be so crazy, leading me astray

And the weary miles get longer each time I drive away

But I always return there, where my heart can run free

To that resting place of friends and family

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Bridge:

Oh... keep on striving, oh... we're almost home

Oh... Lord, I'm ready, go and tell the angels

that I'm coming home

 

Chorus:

Where there is peace there is contentment

On the roads of life, this is journey's end

In my Savior's arms I've got shelter

Cause there's no place, no place like Home

Oh there's no place, no place like home.

Lyrics

Fireflies in fading light,

"Come on baby, come inside, it's getting late"

Spent the day running free as the wind

Just feeling this life, and breathing it in

I don't wanna sleep

 

Held in the arms of a country life, the stars sing me to sleep

I think of white winter days and sweet summer nights

Climb into bed and close my eyes and ...

Chorus:

I dream and all these things come back to me

On Angels wings I'm rocked to sleep, remembering

 

Every day while the earth turned around 

My roots were growing deep in the ground

And strong as the land

Growing up finally took me away to big-city life

And everything changed, nothing stays the same

 

When life is uncertain and my world isn't right

And the rain's falling down

I think of white winter days and sweet summer nights

I close my eyes, I close my eyes and 

Chorus:

I Dream, and all these things come back to me

On Angels wings, I'm rocked to sleep remembering

I Dream, I Dream

Bridge:

Time took it's toll and the farm was sold

Now there's a hundred houses where one had been

Turn back time and maybe I can find

A part of me I haven't seen in a while

Chorus:

I Dream and all these things come back to me

On Angel's wings, I'm rocked to sleep, remembering

Mom in the kitchen and Dad in the fields

I'm touching the treetops, this feels so real

And I'm carried back to the days of my youth

I Dream

Lyrics

I was thinking about you the other day

Something reminded me of the way

You used to make me laugh, I used to laugh

I see your face in every crowd

But you're not there and I wonder how

I'll ever make it alone, I feel alone

 

Chorus:

You went away so much sooner than I thought you would

I wasn't quite ready to let you go

I'm missing you so much it's hard to breathe

I wonder when this aching will end

I wasn't ready

(repeat)

Somehow your heart is tied to mine

And I'm holding on until the time

when I will see you again, I'll see you again

My friend.

Lyrics

The sun is up my little superman with your jammies on

With a flying leap you jump and sail into my waiting arms

You've grown overnight

There he goes my hero, chasing away all those bad guys

Saving queens and kingdoms, better come in cause in it's super time

Life is calling you, Life is calling you

Chorus:

Get on your horse, little man

Pick up your sword and ride away

With courage you'll embrace this life

Little Man of mine

Such an honest gaze, there's laughter in those clear blue eyes

Fix your eyes ahead, heroes come in all shapes and sizes

Spread your wings and fly

The hands of time go marching on so fast and relentlessy

To watch you growing up to be a man is so bitter-sweet

But you were born to fly, you were born to fly

Chorus:

Get on your horse, little man

Pick up your sword and ride away

With courage you'll embrace this life

Get on your horse, little man

Pick up your sword and ride away

With courage you'll embrace this life

 

  There are dragons to be faced

And someone waiting to be saved

Use your strength for good, baby

You have what it takes, little man of mine.

(There he goes, my hero)

Lyrics

When the emptiness is closing in and darkness calls your name

When the weeping finally fades away and leaves a lonely ache

Hold on.

When the voices running round your head steal your dreams away

And every word is taunting you that life will never change

Hold on.

Chorus:

Hold on and don't let go

Of Hope, you're not alone

When you're overwhelmed and battle weary

Lean into the Arms of Mercy

If I thought my arms would be enough 

Or my heart would make you whole,

I would carry you until you could stand with strength and hope,

I'm not enough.

But the One who is the breath of life, He knows this emptiness

Only He can heal what's broken here

Your heart was made for His

He is enough, He's enough

Bridge:

In the stillness comes a whisper

In the silence come His love

Like a gentle breeze that blows through you

He'll breath life in you again

 

Chorus:

Hold on and don't let go

Of Hope, you're not alone

Hold on and don't let go

Of Hope, you're not alone

When you're overwhelmed and battleweary

Lean into the Arms of Mercy

He'll never let you go.

Lyrics

I guess I thought we'd have forever

Kindred hearts that dream together

This wasn't how I planned, but no one plans goodbye.

I thought the tears would end by now

Send you off and bravely smile

Chasing down your dreams, and I will be your stepping stone.

And fly, spread your wings and fly

I'll release you and pray.

 

Chorus:

Look out your window at night

Over the mountains towards the light

And find the One who is still guiding you

And if your dreams get torn and bruised

If you're lost and wondering who you are

I will shelter you in my heart

 

Growing up and growing stronger

Letting go, and moving forward

Stretching us again, this is all a part of love.

And life can bring the unexpected

Refining through the every heartache

In the crucible of pain, we will find the heart of God

And if you fly, if you fly with broken wings

God will carry you, I pray

 

Chorus:

Look out your window at night

Over the mountains towards the light

And find the One, who is still guiding you

And if you're dreams get torn and bruised

If you're lost and wondering who you are

I will hold on to your dreams

And remind you who you are

And I will shelter you, in my heart.
