The Only Thing: (Ricki George)

It's Monday morning and the cold has settled in I take my covers and I pull them from around my head. My feet are chilly as they hit the wooden floor but it doesn't matter how I live my life the day before

This world has pulled me under

But you say rise above!

The only thing that matters, the only thing that matters,

to a heart that's bruised and battered is your Love, is your Love.

Pulled up my collar as the wind it's getting colder it gets harder to exist I don't want to live like this. Made my mistakes in fact I've made more than few my life is full of ups and downs I'm no example of you.

This world has pulled me under,

but you say rise above!

The only thing that matters, the only thing that matters,

to a heart that's bruised and batter is your Love.

I know your love falls down on this savage heart that beats within me.

There's not a single thing that I have done that's worthy of the death of Your Son.

Please forgive me for my ignorance and my arrogance and don't forget me cause I long for your Love.

The only thing that matters, the only thing that matters,

to a heart that's bruised and battered is you Love, is your Love.

 

Forever in Pursuit: (Ricki George/Patrick Ranalla)

I can't explain this empty feeling I'm lost inside and it's destroying me

 stumbling forward always searching for the answer this world has jaded me

 And then you call my name and I see it all so clearly.

if you were always waiting for me...

 then why am I still walking so blind?

and if your arms reaching out to hold me...

  then why am I still falling behind?

I'm out of touch with no direction I hold my breath as I fall to the ground

 frustration setting in I falter again I've failed, again I've let you down.

And then you call my name and I see it all so clearly 

if you were always waiting for me...

 then why am I still walking so blind?

and if your arms are reaching out to hold me...

then why am I still falling behind?

There I go again out on my own you'd think I'd learn by now that my independence is cold and lonely

this time is it I'm diving in I've got to end this I've got to make it home.

 I know that you were always waiting for me

and now I see my life so clearly.

I know your arms are reaching out to hold me

and now I see that I'm not alone.

 

Midnight Stroll: (Ricki George/Michelle George)

Were walking down the cobble stone I hear you sing to me

Your eyes are looking through my soul I feel you cling to me

Your touch it drives my lungs to breath Your spirit moves me

When I look up and you look back This is how I feel and you say to me

I love you more then you'll ever know

I trust you even though sometimes I don't let it show

I could have sworn I locked the door

But know I see its wider than before 

I walked right through kicked off my shoes And then I stepped into you

And when we're standing face to face I feel my pain disintegrate

When I look up and you look back This is how I feel and you say to me

I love you more then you'll ever know

I trust you even though sometimes I don't let it show

I could have sworn I locked the door

But know I see its wider than before 

I dance around you in the stars...

I know that we will go far.

 

 

 

A Beautiful Disaster: (Ricki George)

Pardon me what would you do if you were free next tuesday?

Tell me maam is there a plan? What would you do with all that time?

Is there any room left in that busy schedule For those of us, with out enough to call mine

 Well it's tuesday, it's doomsday tonight

And its high time we cross the great divide

A broken promise to yourself

Leaves a broken heart up on the shelf...

Its tuesday tonight!!!

Pardon me if I intrude I never ment to pry dear But what's it take for you to see

You've got to make the time before it's to late There's so many out there lost in hunger

Thirsty, cold, without a home Will you answer their prayer

Well it's tuesday, it's doomsday tonight

And its high time we cross the great divide

A broken promise to yourself

Leaves a broken heart up on the shelf...

Its tuesday tonight!!!

There's a final breath being taken Cause there's nothing left to lose.

There's in the sand to be crossed but we're to affraid to move.

And somebody's praying for and Angel Oh one that looks like you...oh one that looks like you!

Well it's tuesday, it's doomsday tonight

And its high time  we cross the great divide

A broken promise to yourself

Leaves a broken heart up on the shelf...

Its tuesday tonight!!!

 

 

 

Without You: (Ricki George)

Dear dad this is your son. Where have you been since my life's begun? So many things that I want you to know,

So many feelings left untold and life's been hard for the last 31 years. so many dreams and so many fears.

where did you go when you left us there? Did you cry and did you still care?

Life moves in strange directions

Far to hard to predict.

Tides change and the pasts behind you

Can we put the pain to rest?

Dear dad I'm writing this song in hopes that it won't be long until the day when we finally meet,

Would you stay once you found me? I grew up strong and I grew up fast and now my child hood is in the past,

As a kid you weren't there for me but, we can make it up I swear you'll see

Life moves in strange direction

Far to hard to predict.

Tides change and the pasts behind you

Can we put the pain to rest?

There's times...I sit...pretending I don't miss you! How can I forget?

I've spent...my time...resenting life without you! Its time to forgive?

Life moves in strange direction

Far to hard to predict.

Tides change and the pasts behind you

Can we put the pain to rest?

 

 

 

Never: (Ricki George)

Here I am waiting as patient as I can though the storm is raging from within.

What's it take to follow the path to where you lead? Is it me or is it sometimes hard to breathe? 

Oh... I'm never gonna let this break me!

Oh...I won't let go!

Oh...No matter where this wind might take me

Oh...I won't let go!

Here I am waiting as I dangle from this ledge with a grip that's failing me again!

and as each finger slips so my thoughts fall through the cracks.

Is it me or is it  hard to stay on track?

Oh... I'm never gonna let this break me!

Oh...I won't let go!

Oh...No matter where this wind might take me

Oh...I won't let go!

Some days a flowers scent seems less than perfect and other days you might get lost in a sea of fragrance.

Things change we all get lost in to sea of sadness but the sun still rises just the same!

Oh... I'm never gonna let this break me!

Oh...I won't let go!

Oh...No matter where this wind might take me

Oh...I won't let go!

 

 

 

A Tale of Truth: (Ricki George)

Holy and righteous you're seated above protecting the weak definition of love.

You're highly exalted...a king among kings sustainer of life you created all things

Hallelujah hallelujah our God reigns

Hallelujah hallelujah our God reigns

A righteous redeemer a father and friend Jesus the Christ but you walked among men

Merciful savior life giving son through death and a cross all who choose you have won

Hallelujah hallelujah our God reigns

Hallelujah hallelujah our God reigns

From the depths of the sea to the heights of your glory

This thing that we long for is more than a story

It's more than a fairytale spoken by fools

This choice we've been given would not be confused

Hallelujah hallelujah our God reigns

Hallelujah hallelujah our God reigns

 

 

A different kind of Christmas: (Ricki George)

The snow is falling down...a chorus of songs resounds But will we have Christmas this year

The bells are ringing out...as the children scream and shout But will we have Christmas this year

Isn't it obvious...

It's time to get serious...

And learn to stop all of this...

To give this Christmas spirit some room to breathe

Then snow has covered the ground...but silence is the only sound Can we still have Christmas this year

Where are the presents now...in the morning if there's nothing to be found Can we still have Christmas this year

Isn't it obvious...

It's time to get serious...

And learn to stop all of this...

To give this Christmas spirit some room to breathe

Cause its up to us...

To end this selfishness...

And realize loves enough...

To give this Christmas spirit the air it needs

This years Christmas wish... is that I can keep my new years resolution

 Never actually commiting with tounge in cheek

Caressing like the evenings goodbye kissing

Underneath the mistletoe but something is missing

Isn't it obvious...

It's time to get serious...

And learn to stop all of this...

To give this Christmas spirit some room to breathe

Cause its up to us...

To end this selfishness...

And realize loves enough...

To give this Christmas spirit the air it needs
