Closer to Love

 

“Closer To Love”

She got the call today
One out of the gray
And when the smoke cleared
It took her breath away
She said she didn’t believe
It could happen to me
I guess we’re all one phone call from our knees
We’re gonna get there soonIf every building falls
And all the stars fade
We’ll still be singin’ this song
The one they can’t take away
I’m gonna get there soon,
She’s gonna be there too
Cryin’ in her room
Prayin’ Lord, come through
We’re gonna get there soon[Chorus:]
Oh it’s your light,
Oh it’s your way,
Pull me out of the dark
Just to show me the way
Cryin’ out now
From so far away…
You pull me closer to love
Closer to loveMeet me once again
Down off Lake Michigan
Where we could feel the storm blowin’ down with the wind
And don’t apologize
For all the tears you’ve cried
You’ve been way too strong now for all your life
I’m gonna get there soon,
You’re gonna be there too
Cryin’ in your room,
Prayin’ Lord come through
We’re gonna get there soon

[Chorus:]
Oh, it’s your light
Oh, it’s your way
Pull me out of the dark
Just to show me the way
Cryin’ out now
From so far away…
Pull me closer to love
Closer to love

‘Cause you are all that I’ve waited for
All of my life (We’re gonna get there)
You are all that I’ve waited for
All of my life
You pull me closer to love
Closer to love
Pull me closer to love
Pull me closer to love
Closer to love, oh no
Closer to love
Closer to love
Pull me closer to love

Demons


“Demons” – Radioactive 

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold

 

When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood’s run stale

I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There’s nowhere we can hide

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

At the curtain’s call
It’s the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl

So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you’ve made

Don’t wanna let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don’t wanna hide the truth

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

They say it’s what you make
I say it’s up to fate
It’s woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can’t escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

 

 

 

Deliverance by Strahan

 

Your love is a flood and I drink deep when the tide is up
Oh would you flood me too?
Saltwater in my blood has made me taste sweet to the world
Oh and you taste sweet too

This is my deliverance hands held high as you deliver it
Oh you have made me a child of God
My feet on the ground and my heart in heaven
I am bread made without the leaven
Oh you have made me a child of God

I lay in the sand with sweet forgiveness in my hand
Oh as a gift from you
Your water floods my brain this grey cranium wont be the same
No where I’ve been won’t do

This is my deliverance hands held high as you deliver it
Oh you have made me a child of God
My feet on the ground and my heart in heaven
I am bread made without the leaven
Oh you have made me a child of God

And I won’t go
Until I know
That you have sown
All you have in me.

 

Life is Hard

20140116-143307.jpg“Life is Hard”

Life is beauty through and through
Life is sunny, life is cool
Life is even easy too
But if my word is to be true
Life is something to behold
But if the truth is to be told
Let us not leave out any part
Do not fear, it’s safe to say it here
You will not be called a weakling nor a fraud
For feeling the pain of the whole wide world
You want to help but can’t help the feeling you cannot
And it’s killing you while you’re just trying to smile from your heart
So go on, say it, on the same knees you’re praying
Yes, life is hard

Come celebrate
Life is hard
Come celebrate Life is hard
Our life is all we are

Celebrate it in the sun, promenade it with everyone
Elevate it in a song
And I’ll be there to play it, don’t get me wrong
When I feel like dying and being gone
When life is hard
There’s just one thing, let’s not forget
Yes! life is it!
Life is it, life is it, it’s where it’s at
It’s getting skinny, getting fat
It’s falling deep into a love,
It’s getting crushed just like a bug
Life there’s no love, it’s getting beat into the ground
It’s getting lost and getting found,
To growing up and getting round
It’s feeling silence, feeling sound
It’s feeling lonely, feeling full
It’s feeling oh so beautiful!
Yes!

Come celebrate
Life is hard
Come celebrate
Life is hard
Our life is all we are.
