stand up 02:59
hopeful where this life could take you the next moment tries to break you takes your breath away standing like a soldier so tall suddenly you're in the free fall no hope left today cause we all fall down sometimes & the way back up's (is) a climb alone, we can't win this fight but together we stand up tonight why get up to fall right back down better to stay here on the ground circumstance will always win all your fight's gone now diminished every dream's been left unfinished asking where you've been stand up
i've got the melody you've got the harmony we can make this music if we try you sing the chorus, dear i'll play the notes i hear we can make this music if we try we can make this music with our lives with our lives the kids twirl, sing, & dance you and i steal a glance we can make this music if we try what we sing will make us strong so we all join in with the song we can make this music if we try we can make this music with our lives
home 02:09
getting here when we're together long roads run short getting here when we're apart short roads run long foreign lands when we're together hold familiar charms hometowns when we're separated we don't belong home home going home (instrumental) home home home home we are home
i have tasted and seen stood before kings and queens but nothing compares to your glory try to walk away but your love makes me stay there's no escaping your story claimed i remain safe i will stay i was ruined for less even with some regrets but nothing compares to your glory these roots have gone deep entangled but free there's no escaping your story
a lullaby 02:45
goodnight, goodnight the day is coming to a close i kiss your cheeks then we rub nose to nose goodnight, goodnight I run my fingers through your hair and listen closely as you whisper your prayers goodnight my dear i will take all your fears carry them far far from your door there's no worries anymore goodnight, goodnight as your eyes close for today i will see you soon then you will hear me say good morning dear i will take all your fears carry them far far from your door there's no worries anymore
cathedrals 03:35
walking in to the house of the holy stained glass windows tell the story as the lights falling down on the lowly i can see deeper higher marching by every life their own glory wondering what has become of their story with the storms reigning over the lowly can they see? we could be cathedrals
when i'm going down and death is at my door others look and fear but i cannot afford why can't i afford? with you my life has been so sweet you see the better man in me gotta bring more than this to take me down with your love i'm fighting back to found when i'm standing still trapped behind fear's door i've given up too much i won't give up any more won't give up anymore
our song 02:59
darkened houses lonely people empty churches crooked steeples they're singing out we need a song we need a song every corner hearts broken has death already spoken they're singing out we need a song we need a song hope arising making amends final chapter o how love mends and your grace will be our song we'll sing it loud until we all sing along
time to fly 03:25
i was thinking of our children all the advice that you & I would want to give cause if something ever happened want you to know you only get one chance to live when you hit frustration's wall look up for the way above it all it's time to fly time to soar spread your wings live the life you were made for you've heard that faith can move a mountain so why get tangled up by simple fears the distractions of these worries will never add another second to your years fly my love
