Lyrics

Lord
When they laughed at You
I was laughing too
I hated You

Lord
I took the gifts You gave to me
I took credit for them freely
"Hey, look at me!"

You gave so much yet You couldn't take away
Even though Your sheep had gone astray
You always knew that there would come a day
When I'd say, "Lord, hey, show me the way"

Lord
Death was all around me
The best thing seemed to be
To start killing me

Lord
Lord, I never knew
That what you say is true
I was killing You

Still, You gave so much yet You couldn't take away
Even though Your sheep had gone astray
You always knew that there would come a day
When I'd say, "Lord, hey, show me the way"

Lord
Lord, I slept in slime
Abusing that which was not mine
That was my crime

Lord
Lord, now it's so clear
You were always near
Always here

You gave so much yet you couldn't take away
Even though Your sheep had gone astray
You always knew that there would come a day
When I'd say "Lord, hey, show me the way"



Now I'm saying, "Lord, hey, show me the way"

Lyrics

(From Psalm 40)

I waited patiently for the Lord
And He heard my cry
He brought me up out of the pit
And established my steps

He put a new song in my mouth
"Praise to our God!"
Many will see it and fear
And will trust in the Lord

Blessed is the man
Who makes the Lord His trust
Who does not respect the proud
Nor turn aside to lies

Many Lord are your wonderful works
That You have done
And Your thoughts which are toward us
They cannot be recounted


Paisley Yankolovich
From the 2004 CD, NOT UNCLEAN

Lyrics

When Jesus came down from the mountain
Behold a leper came and worshipped Him
Saying, "Lord if Thou will, Thou can make me clean"
And Jesus reached forth His hand
And touched him saying, "I will, be thou clean"
And immediately the leprosy was cleansed

I can see your sin from here
Covering your skin like liquid shame
Sweat oozes from your pores from fear
Afraid someone will call your name

What if someone finds you out?
That you're not what you claim to be about
What if someone finds you out?
That you're not what you claim to be about
And you're unclean! You're unclean!

You and your friend could be twins
In fact, everyone in the world's guilty
Imagine exposing all your sins
I can tell you right now that it wouldn't be pretty

Who will ever touch your hand ?
That's where the line is drawn in the sand
Who will ever touch your hand?
That's where the line is drawn in the sand
When you're unclean! You're unclean!


In Jesus eyes there are no lepers
We are only sons and daughters
In Jesus eyes there are no lepers
We are only sons and daughters



Who is the master of your failure?
Pray tell, is it One who can forgive?
Or is it just another sinner
Without the knowledge how to live?

Who is that beating your brow?
And what does God think about them now?
Who is that beating your brow?
And what does God think about them now?
Telling you thet you're unclean!


In Jesus' eyes there are no lepers
We are only sons and daughters
In Jesus' eyes there are no lepers
We are only sons and daughters



These signs shall follow them that believe
In my name they shall cast out devils
They shall speak with new tongues
They shall pick up serpants
They shall lay hands on the sick
And they shall recover!

After all is said and done
The victory's already won
After all is said and done
The victory's already won
You're not unclean! You're not unclean!


In Jesus' eyes there are no lepers
We are only sons and daughters
In Jesus' eyes there are no lepers
We are only son's and daughters

Lyrics

(Lyrics co-written by Leaha McGillivray-Livings)

Where there is one person
There is hope for change
Where there is life
There is hope for change
Where there is one church
There is hope for change

There is hope
Our hope is Jesus
And without Him
There would be no hope

There is hope
Our hope is Jesus
And without Him
There would be no hope

Where there is the old
The young have the hope
To survive
The rough times

Where two or more
Are gathered in His name
There is hope
To survive
The rough times

There is hope
Our hope is Jesus
And without Him
There would be no hope

There is hope
Our hope is Jesus
And without Him
There would be no hope

There would be no hope

Lyrics

 

See lonely faces
It makes my heart to burn
See empty vacant eyes
Eyes have been crying

Tell them about Jesus
"I'm too afraid right now"
Trust me they'll listen
Hearts have been opened

Heal these people!
Heal these people!

We walk through fire
Sometimes for others
All of our trials
Some go unnoticed

And every Sunday
We see our family
Hiding their sorrow
In their best clothing

Heal these people!
Heal these people!

Lord, tell Your children
How much You love them
Teach us to listen
Eyes must be opened

Lyrics

 

Door closed in my face
Dream sat in my lap
My eyes clouded with tears

I could hear someone laughing
I could hear someone scream,
"Justify my fears"

The pedestal for you is gone
In the rubble I'm afraid
As isolation nears

Don't you know you almost had me convinced that it
Shouldn't Hurt like this?
Wrapped around your finger so tight
It Shouldn't Hurt like this

Where is all the sweet, sweet joy?
It Shouldn't Hurt like this
Back to the place where it never was
It Shouldn't Hurt like this

It Shouldn't Hurt!

Jesus, You step in
Your warm embrace
And I give in

A forward vision
Some hope within
I heal in time
And try again

Lord, You almost have me convinced
That it Shouldn't Hurt Like This

Why leave me alone?
Am I not a good friend?
Or is my time just past?

I know what you are saying
To anyone who's listening
To make your hatred last

Now your memory
Is like a song once heard
It left my mind so fast

Don't you know you almost had me convinced that it
Shouldn't Hurt like this?
Wrapped around your finger so tight
It Shouldn't Hurt like this

Where is all the sweet, sweet joy?
It Shouldn't Hurt like this
Back to the place where it never was
It Shouldn't Hurt like this

It Shouldn't Hurt!

Jesus, You step in
Your warm embrace
And I give in

A forward vision
Some hope within
I heal in time
And try again

Lord, You almost have me convinced
That it Shouldn't Hurt Like This

Lyrics

 

Don't go to sleep angry
Don't try to dream while you're afraid
I sure love you

The rest of the world won't listen
As you tell me just how you feel
I've been there too

And the passion that you're seeking
Yeah, the passion that you're
seeking is real

Jesus gave you your desire
Now He plans to fulfill it
Jesus started your heart's fire
He know He has
He won't kill it

Your hands they long to touch
All that means so much to you
Seems so out of reach

But there's a ship that's coming in
And it's got on it your name
It's all for you!

And I know that it's gonna
Yeah, it's gonna withstand the rain

Jesus gave you your desire
Now He plans to fulfill it
Jesus started your heart's fire
He knows He has
He won't kill it

And I promise that tomorrow,
That tomorrow won't be the same

Jesus gave you your desire
Now He plans to fulfill it
Jesus started your heart's fire
He knows he has
Did you think He was blind?

Jesus gave you your desire
Now He plans to fulfill it
Jesus started your heart's fire
He knows He has
He won't kill it

Lyrics

 

I've got a body

I treat it as I should

`Cause if I do for it

It does me really good

 

It tells me what it wants

I reach to satisfy

I don't have to worry

It controls my mind

 

And it's really hell

When you're reachin' for the heav'n

And all you wanna do

Is make yourself feel good

 

When I'm all alone

My body talks to me

If my stomach growls

It needs food to eat

 

I satisfy my hunger

As fast as I can

What I can't reach with food

I reach some other way

 

And it's really hell

When you're reachin' for the heav'n

And all you wanna do

Is make yourself feel good

 

When this is all over

Everything I'll know

That's if I have a body

To tell me where to go

 

When I face God

And tell Him what I've done

I'm gonna say, "Gee...

I was just having fun!"

Lyrics

(lyrics co-written by Leaha McGillivray-Livings)

I know what it's like to be alone
I know what it's like to feel abandoned
I know what it's like to cry myself to sleep
I know what it's like to hate myself

I know what it's like not to have enough food
I know what it's like to not have a home
I know what it's like to be tired and weary
And I know what it's like to be stunned by God

But human love is a distant friend
That tries to visit every once in awhile
It barely leaves a memory
But it is always on my mind

I know what it's like to think I'm handsome
I know what it's like to think I'm ugly
I know what it's like to feel old and young
`Cause I know what it's like to watch someone die

I know what it's like to watch my time escape me
`Cause I know what it's like to mistake lust for love
And I know what it's like to be tired and weary
And I know what it's like to be stunned by God

But human love is a distant friend
That tries to visit every once in awhile
It barely leaves a memory
But it is always on my mind

Thank God I have Jesus...

Story

 

Story

My first record.

Next to my children, this was the most hopeful, exciting and gratifying moment in my life.

What started as a little acoustic record called, "Unplugged Desire" became a challenging work that calls to mind what a Gospel record by David Bowie might have sounded like in the 70s.

So many stories attached to this. My favorite being how the entire project was struck by lightening. Hint: The whip crack on the intro of "Human Love" was unintentional...
