Walk Away From Love

i know you
i know you doubt what i am saying
you think that i've been deceived
to follow after what some call a weak man's haven
it seems so simple that it's hard to believe

[Chorus]
i can't understand why you would walk away from love
no i don't understand why you would walk away from love
just can't understand why you would walk away from love
i'll never understand why you would walk away from love

maybe i'm right and He's waiting at the table
maybe it happened when i saw it was my sin
maybe He's waiting for a chance to show you true love
maybe you'll never get this chance again

[Chorus]

i'm a fool, so are you
i'm a fool, so are you
maybe you think i'm a fool for what i'm saying
maybe that's what i'd like to be
or maybe you're a fool to say you're a wise man
either way you lose unless you meet with my King

[Chorus 2x]

By Myself

cornered at a costume ball
by a handful of disguises
so i tried them all on
and they were all the right sizes
i wore them obviously
though they would choke the life from me

[Chorus]
i got here by myself but
i know that i will never leave the same way
i got here by myself but
how many more will i have led astray

i work the floor in search of someone
who would give me half a chance
i know if i look hard enough
i'll always find someone who'll dance

[Chorus]

it's not long before i notice
there are no doors to be seen
i can see i'm going nowhere
somewhere that i've already been

[Chorus 2x]

That Kind Of Love

tell me the story about the Man
who came down from the sky
who healed the broken hearted with His hand
and dried the tear-dimmed eye
oh, i would give anything
to see Him face to face and
oh He gave us everything
to make the world a better place

[Chorus]
oh, where does that kind of love come from
they say that it runs in His blood
oh, where can i find that kind of love
they say it runs in His blood

the way He died upon the cross
was that the only way
to save the children who were lost
will he back again some day
oh i would give anything
to see Him face to face and
oh, He gave us everything to make the world a better place

[Chorus]

oh, i want to find that kind of love
they say that it runs in His blood
oh, where does that kind of love come from
they say that it runs in His blood
oh, where can i find that kind of love
they say that it runs in His blood

Dying Man

this was not my idea
no i would not have though of this
though i admit there was evidence
surely not enough to convict
that a man was not his own
and there was more than day to day
how there could be a promise of hope
and healing that the soul might live again

[Chorus]
never would've bought it
never would've thought it could be
never would've held it
until it took hold of me, hold of me
now i've found freedom
now mercy holds my hand
it took the grace of One living
to save this dying man

now as i look at these pages
i see a story told in whole
not just segments or phrases
but a story of the soul
and now a man was not his own
and there was more than day to day
how there can be a promise of hope
and healing that the soul might live again

[Chorus 2x]

never would've bought it
never would've thought it could be

Spinnin' Round

you've got to reach out and take it
before it goes by too fast
they say that life is what you make it
i think we've made it at last

[Chorus]
some people say we're crazy but
we're all spinnin round, we're all spinnin round
but you and me we've got something to say
we're all spinnin round, we're all spinnin round
just because you think you're lucky well
we're all spinnin round, we're all spinnin round
you and me we've got something inside
i think we're gonna make it

you've got your four wheels spinnin
you dig em down into the ground
just when you think you're winnin

[Chorus]

round, round, round spinnin around
round, round, round spinnin around
round, round, round spinnin around
round, round, round

Goldie's Last Day

(goldie! Hey goldie)

puppy love, puppy love
yes she gave all she had
not like a brother or sister more like
a mom or a dad

we never asked her
never gave her a choice
we just barked out commands
sit, stay, don't beg stop licking my hand
those days are gone now
i wish goldie could come out and play

[Chorus]
goldie's last day, goldie's last day
if a picture paints a thousand words
there's nothing left to say
wish you could have been there for goldie's last day

she was 11 to you and me
what's that in dog years?
77, that's more than 11
she outlived her peers
the talk around town is that goldie passed away

[Chorus]

we are confident that this incident was not an accident
(as per our investigation)
confident that this incident was not an accident
we are confident that this incident was not an accident
(she never missed a vaccination)
confident that this incident was not an accident

[Chorus]

Satisfied

i never want to be satisfied
just when i thought i had everything it was a lie
for so long now i've been wasting time
wasting time

winter springs or summer fall
the seasons never cared at all
that i was never changing
my colors stayed the same
but when days go by and i'm not growing
the leaves fall off the bare what i'm not showing
that i've never had my feet wet
and for that i am to blame

[Chorus]
i never want to be satisfied
just when i thought i had everything it was a lie
for so long now i've been wasting time
wasting time

i've sat and watched the tide go out
but i did not chase - no i did not doubt
the water would return to shore
and meet me once again
and i've know the truth and understood
or thought i did or thought i could
be satisfied with points of view
but i'm tired of the din

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
winter spring or summer fall
the seasons never cared at all
winter spring or summer fall
i'm still changing

winter spring or summer fall
the seasons never cared at all
winter spring or summer fall
i'm still changing

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

I Don't Understand

i retreat
by myself at the back of my brain
i cannot see
what You're showing me through this pain
i have found
that i have found
nothing for so long

[Chorus]
i don't understand
i don't need to
i know You've a plan
You will see through
it is in Your hands
i believe You

i say goodbye
i leave my loved ones far behind
i'm asking
why is this is the story of my life
i have found
that i have found
nothing for so long

[Chorus]

i was only wondering
i've been trying to understand
i know there is more
so much more than i can see

[Chorus 2x]

Mercy Man

i couldn't find myself today i got lost in reflection retracing steps all along the way back to days with no direction i wasn't wishing for those times to come again no it was more of a reminder of where and what and how i'd been living my life without connection to the One who'd always seen within Who knew my heart and its intentions He said that all could be forgiven if i could trust in One Who'd risen and that's when His mercy came to me Chorus i was saved by the Mercy Man He touched me heart He helped me understand that there was shelter and unfailing love if i'd just take the hand hand of the Mercy Man all these expectations that i'd placed upon myself how i would conquer the giants with the help of no one else but i was wrong - i was mistaken what i thought was the truth was not the truth at all and that's when i heard Mercy call Chorus 2x but i was wrong - i was mistaken what i thought was the truth was not the truth at all Chorus 2x He took my hand holds my heart the Mercy Man

Shine

there is no reason to run anymore
no reason to hide away
since He's come into my life
He's brought sunshine to my day

[Chorus]
i will let my light shine
no more shadows
i will let my light shine
darkness run away
i will let my light shine
for a bright tomorrow
i will let my light shine

no more casting shadows
no more living lies
since He's come into my life
He's brought sunshine to my skies

[Chorus 2x]

Wait For The Sun

love will always stay
somewhere in your heart
and hope will never fade
though at times it will be hard
but lift your head anyway
God's Son is returning
He's bringing brighter days

[Chorus]

so wait for the sun to come out again
storms always come but they blow away with the wind
so wait for the Son is coming again
winds of trial blow hard
so we've got to hang on
hang on to Him

where's the joy you've known
it seems you can't remember
all the fire in your life
has turned to cold december
but lift your head anyhow
He's won greater battles before
what makes you think He won't fight now?

[Chorus 2x]

let the sun shine
let the sun shine in
the sun shine in
(6x)
