about

I had lots of words, melodies and ideas. Dave is a brilliant piano player and engineer. This was our freshman attempt, but I'm still amazed at how it blessed so many and changed the course of our lives by helping us really what we really wanted.

Track Name: When I Think of You
WHEN I THINK OF YOU

When I think of You, I start to smile
I’ve got a feeling this’ll last for awhile
You are the one who puts the summertime in my heart

When I close my eyes, I see your face
Just one look is like a warm embrace
Somehow you always melt that little place in my heart

You, o you, are gentle and true to me
O me, I always want to be close to you.

When I’m alone, I feel your touch
Holding my hand, you tell me so much
You put such a ray of sunshine in my heart.

You, o you, I’ll follow this through to the end
And then I’ll always want to be a friend to you

What’s the nature of this steed?
Will I fall and will I bleed?
Can’t control this feeling in my heart
Candle flickers in the dark
Will it fade or will it spark?
Can it burn these walls guarding my heart.
Where’d you come from? I don’t know.
Will you stay and make this grow
Can you melt away the snow inside my heart.
Track Name: Just Like Juliet
JUST LIKE JULIET

Just like Juliet, I’m in love
I once could see but now I’m blinded by the stars above
And I don’t understand why my lovig has flown away
I’m risking my life just to stay with you tonight.

I am the night, the nightingale
You are the lark of the morning
You are the sight, the sentinel
I am the heart that needs a warning to fly away
To fly away before the day breaks
Fly away before I’m caught in your arms.

Just like Juliet, I’m a fool.
You stole my heart away and now I’m breaking all the rules
You’ve got me lying and crying in my sleep
I’m trying to keep my head on straight
But I’m in this much too deep

Just like Juliet
I need a love that won’t threaten my life
Well, I believe in sacrifice
But I don’t know my Romeo
if you are worth the price. Are you worth the price?
Track Name: Jealousy
JEALOUSY

Look at her, look at her, beautiful hazel eyes
It’s no surprise what she has inside
Summertime, evergreen, imagination
Sparkle and shine in her eyes.

Look at me, eyes of mossy green
Jealous and greedy, embittered by pride
I would give anything to be in her skin
To borrow her life for a day.

Look at her, look at her, dancing about the room
Dispelling all the gloom with her smile
What has she got to be so happy for
She should try my life for awhile

Look at me, desperate for company
Lonely and desolate like a lost child
I would give anything to be in her skin
To borrow her life for a day.

Why can’t I see that I’m looking at me
The way I could be with the light of the Lord in my eyes
123 it’s as easy as ABC. If I could only
accept and believe and commit to follow the Christ.

Look at her, look at me. Oh, we could be one
If only I could believe
She’s got a look in her eye
That says she’s alive and she’s happy to be
I want it in me
Track Name: Always and Never Alone
ALWAYS AND NEVER ALONE

When I am lost in a clouded world of dreams I don’t see
Sunlight can’t get through to me
I’m in a forest of desert sands,
A million faces , but no one there to hold my hand
And I know my mind’s a maze that no one can get through
And my heart is filled with feelings no one ever knew
But You, oh You. You reach inside my life and set me free
Only You can see the secret part of me

I’m always and never alone with You
You’re with me always, even in my darkest days
Always and never alone with You
You fill me up and tell me that I’ll be okay
Always and never alone.

Once I was scaling an endless wall
With splintered nails and no one there to catch my fall
Scratching the surface for tarnished truths
Beneath the burning lies that came and stole my youth
Oh, all these puzzled pieces never make me whole
When I look into my eyes, I can’t find my soul
But you, o You, You open up my eyes so I can see
Only You can find the secret heart in me.

I’m always and never alone with You
You’re with me always, even in my blackest nights
Always and never alone with You
You lift me up and tell me that I’ll be all right
Always and never alone.

You, o You, bring light into my life so I can see
Only You can silence all the storms that rage in me
Oh, You throw open wide the gates and set me free
Only You can see the secret part of me
Track Name: Divine
DIVINE

I watch you move and talk and breathe
But all the same I can’t believe
That You are real and not a dream
When such perfection You do seem

It’s a miracle. Why can’t you see yourself the way I do.
You might think you’re “normal”
But you’re nothing of the kind, you are divine.
Divine, God’s image set in you
And you are beautiful. For you are you.

Flesh from human flesh and every life is precious
But the soul that lives inside a man
Can not be made by human hands.

When I hold you close and feel the life beat in your breast
I long to call you my own, but I know you are not mine
You are divine, divine. God’s precious, chosen son
And you are beautiful
For you are one in a million
And no one else is like you
You are the only one
He threw away the mold
And I long to be happy with the way He made me
And I pray that someday you’ll be happy with the way
That He made you.

And holy hands formed your flesh
And holy hands shaped your soul
And I’ve no doubt in my mind
That you are divine. You are divine.

I see the mirror on my wall
I look so big, yet feel so small
A picture frames the tangible
But nothing can contain my soul

Each and every day we grow
But some is change we cannot see
Know the Potter’s in control
And He’s shaping you inside into something divine
Divine, His work has just begun and you are beautiful
For you are one in a million
And no one else is like you
You are the only one
He threw away the mold
And I long to be happy with the way He made me
And I pray that someday you’ll be happy with the way
That He made you.
One day you’ll be happy with the way
That He made you.
Track Name: Too Soon
TOO SOON

Too soon, too young
There goes another one
Too fast today
How can I tell them to wait?

The evening sun reaches out across the sky
Black and scarlet shadows mingle in my eye
This moment may soon be gone
Your glory cannot last very long

Youthful innocence and curiosity
Try to cover up their insecurity
I know it, I’ve been there too
How can I get them to see my point of vice

How can I tell them to wait?
Life seems so short at sweet sixteen
They’re always in such a hurry
So scared of being late
When there’s so much to do
And there’s so much at stake
How can I tell them to wait?

Quintessential moments interrupt your peace
Heartbeats pound together looking for release
No wonder you’re so unsure
This decision could change your life forever

The evening sun sinks down beyond your view
The fire that lit your day is burning inside you
Quit fighting, with Him we’ve won the war
He’ll show you something that’s worth waiting for
Track Name: Fool 4 U
FOOL 4 U

I’d rather be a fool for You than be wise in the eyes of the whole wide world
I’d rather be blind they buy into the lies that delight a material girl.
I’d rather fail at all I try and rest assured that when I die
I’d be there on the other side with You
I’d rather be a fool for You

I’d rather be a fool for You than parade on a stage of all I abhor
I’d rather be despised in their eyes then compromise what I stand up for
I don’t need praise for all I do, but just to know that when my time is through
I can be with You.
I’d rather be a fool for You.

For the only truly foolish thing that I could ever do
Is to be afraid to be a fool for You
I’d rather be a fool for You.

I’d rather be a fool for You than abjure what is pure for worldly gain.
I’d rather lose all my pride than to ride on the laurels of fortune or fame
I’d rather run the grueling race then set my own sweet walking pace
If at the end I could see your smiling face
I’d rather be a fool for You, o Lord.
I’d rather be a fool for You.
