I’ll Be There, Right Here

All night, all night
I’ll be there, right here
For you

Without a doubt, never fear
Don’t open your eyes
Just let it fall
For I am here to catch you

Our feet, have such
A hard time keeping up
To our heads
And if there’s
A way to get back on track
I’m here
For you

Don’t think
That you can’t trust me when I say
I’ll be there, right here
For you

I’ll always be there
I’ll be right here
I’ll be all for you

He Set Out to Find It (Part Six)

He’s lonely all around
But he knows his way through town
Day after day after day
But the faces just don’t stay

He’s seen love, but it was never real
So he set out to find it
Well, what he found was not in numbers
Not in paper or plastic
But in the heart and the soul

He set out to find it
A love from deep within
He found it in a man
Who’s outer shell
Was worn thin so much
That his heart stood out

Listen to Blank Slate

I put together some music for Blank Slate, and tried recording it for you. I wouldn’t say it’s in good shape, but you can listen to what I got at my myspace or my purevolume.

There Are Stains

There are stains on my pants
From some jelly or some jam
And something else, I don’t know
But I know that you care
I know that you’re there
And I just want to be with you

There’s a cut on my hand
But after the bleeding, it’s healing
And soon there’ll be a scar that might not go away
And forever I’ll look back on my foolishness today

Come on, a little spur wouldn’t hurt
Where on earth do I turn
Or do I need to make a spiritual exit
To the nearest rest stop, I need a stop
To stop and think, breathe and pray
Because I know that you care
I know that you’re there
And I just want to be with you

Blank Slate

It’s a blank slate
Where I’m starting
So now I’m trying to find
An answer to the question

What will I paint on this canvas
Give me the yellow, and I’ll paint the sun
Shining in the sky, let my life be a light

Because there’s more
Than what is here and what has been before
So chase me through the maze
Let me see the grace
That overwhelms my stains

Where will I turn, will left be right
Give me the blindfold, take my hand and lead
Shining through the dark, let my life be a light

It’s a blank slate
So what will I paint
Can anyone paint light
Because I want to know

It’s a blank slate
So where will I turn
Let’s follow the light

God Who Makes

When I don’t have the words to say
A response, just in my heart, the tears on my face
Because I know what You have said is right
But why’d it come so easy to me
And other people just can’t see

You’re a God who saves
You’re a God who makes us whole again
You’re a God who makes us live again

I want to cry, I really do
Because we’ve all crawled so far away from You
Even when You came down to bleed for our lives
But why’d it come so easy to me
And other people just can’t see

You’re a God who saves
You’re a God who makes us
Whole again
You’re a God who makes us
Live again
Oh, give us life again

Reignite the fire within
Give us the words to convey Yours
Lord, please live through me

His Heart Stands Out (Part Five)

Well, he never really had a home
But tonight he felt it
Well, he never really looked for a place to stay
But he always had those backyards and blankets
To get him through the night
Until tonight

But you’d never know it if you knew him
That when you say goodbye, he’s lost
And he blends in to the crowd
But his heart stands out
Because he sees the beauty
In this broke and beaten world
