From the 2008 CD, WHEN LOVE DIES

Lyrics

The Answer to the darkness
True love is at hand
Freedom will come knocking
It's time to take a stand
It's time to take a stand

You think you live life
Just like you want to
You think your life
Makes so much sense

Look into the mirror
Look deep into your eyes
Do they seem familiar?
Or are you surprised?
Are you surprised?

You think you live life
Just like you want to
You think your life
Makes so much sense

You can't see
That you have fallen
You put God's love
To the test

You think you live life
Just like you want to
You think your life
Makes so much sense

You can't see that
You're just a puppet
To the one
Who can't repent

Rebellion or dominion
There's nothing in between
The purpose of the father
Is very seldom seen
It's very seldom seen

You think you know
What your heart desires
You think you know
What you need most

Tell me why the nightmares
Are all your sleepings hold?
Tell me where the peace is
The peace that Jesus told?
Where's the peace
That Jesus promised you?

You think you know
What your heart desires
You think you know
What you need most

But you can't see
Your passion's fired
By damnation's
Hellish host

You think you know
What your heart desires
You think you know
What you need most

Satan's armies
Are arriving
But the soldier's sleeping
At his post

The Answer to the darkness
Is Jesus
It's Jesus...

From the 2008 CD, WHEN LOVE DIES

Lyrics

Maybe you were wrong
But these damned scars remain
You left your mark
You left the pain

You didn't know what pain you brought
Or maybe you did
When you cut your lifeline so short
The life you should've lived

You just had to get out
You couldn't cope
But you gave up so much
Oh so much

I cry for you
For we once loved
Those days were hard
Hard on both of us

Maybe I said things
That I shouldn't have
But now you're gone
And I can't even say I'm Sorry

I can't even say I'm Sorry...

You were a special girl
Your smile made my day
But we were fools to let you lose
The only game you knew to play

But what I would give
To have you back one more day
To prevent you
From throwing it all away

But the case is closed
You shut the door
And left everyone wondering
What you gave it all up for

I cry for you
For we once loved
Those days were hard
Hard on both of us

Maybe I said things
That I shouldn't have
But now you're gone
And I can't even say I'm Sorry

I can't even say I'm Sorry...

Lyrics

This song was written by Chuck Freeman who at the end of his life graciously handed me his entire catalogue to use at my discretion. I did not and do not take this honor lightly. Chuck was an exemplary brother in the Lord who devoted his entire life-and talent-to spreading the Gospel. His take-no-prisoners approach (even with me) was startling, challenging, inspiring and saving. I pray to be more like him when I grow up.

Lyrics

I wonder about you
As I sit here waiting and waiting
What is it that you do
Every night as you're leaving?
After one long year...

Is it something you can feel?
Is it something you can taste?
Is some other love more real?
Because it's mine you waste
After two long years...

Where are you now?
Does it even matter if I think of you?
Does it even matter if I manage to pray?
I wonder if they ever make if through
When Love Dies

I get into my car
This is something that I need to know
I need to know how far
Away from me you go
After three long years...

Is it something you can feel?
Is it something you can taste?
Is some other love more real?
Because it's mine you waste
After four long years...

Where are you now?
Does it even matter if I think of you?
Does it even matter if I manage to pray?
I wonder if they ever make it through
When Love Dies

Lyrics

He who's got the legs of death
Can put on a show
Pretty soon the coke will tase like plastic
And I gotta go

See you later on
Yeah I'm gonna see you on the moon
See you in the stars
Yeah I'm gonna see you real soon

Why'd you have to spread your legs?
Little comes where you want much
It's dog eat dog when the poor cat begs
Why'd you have to live?

Why'd you have to spread your legs?
Little comes where you want much
It's dog eat dog when the poor cat begs
Why'd you have to love so much?

Remember the first time you did your little dance for me?
In the vinyl pants section of Fiorucci
You told me 'bout the time that you met Andy Warhol
He died the same year as you
Don't that beat all?
Why'd you have to spread your legs?
Little comes where you want much
It's dog eat dog when the poor cat begs
Why'd you have to live?

Why'd you have to spread your legs?
Little comes where you want much
It's dog eat dog when the poor cat begs
Why'd you have to love so much?

It's so hard to loook someone in the eye
And tell them all that God can do
Especially if it's true for them
It must be true for you
And in your heart
You really don't believe it's true

Especially if it's true for them
It must be true for you
And in your heart
You really don't believe it's true

Now Freddy's Dead
Freddy's Dead...



(For Freddy Church & Steve Winwood)

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

Lord, you almost have me convinced...


 

Story

Recorded back-to-back-to-back with "Zombies" and "Real Man," this record is my loving homage to the early '70s and great bands like Traffic, Blind Faith, Buffalo Springfield, and The Incredible String Band. I also reference Public Image LTD, disco, punk rock and Andy Warhol. This is one of my favorite records.
