Shadowlands 

The bill arrived a little too late it tried  its  best to tell the story straight address to Al been gone for 30 years so it goes in  this valley of tears 

 

These Shadowlands they think are real They've gotten weird a bit surreal

They cannot cannot hear but they have ears No one listens in this valley of tears 

 

 Get up early for work don’t  be late  make your plans love instead of hate 

 Live your  don't give into your fears It's the best we do in this valley of tears 

 

Shadowlands they think are real They've gotten weird a bit surreal

They cannot cannot hear but they have ears  No one listens in this valley of tears 

 

All who listen  who hear my voice lighten up while you have a choice

Love  those around you with a helping hand

That's what lasts in this shadowland

 

Are you listening those who have ears   Just keeping it  real 

In this valley of Tears

 

Shadowlands they think are real They've gotten weird a bit surreal

They cannot cannot hear but they have ears  No one listens in this valley of tears 

 

 Welcome To My World

In my world everybody is forgiven my world everybody keeps giving my world

resentments are distance welcome to my world 

 

Once upon a time and the time before that people used to think the world was flat 

then they got frightened by a big old cat where did they ever come with that ?

Then they started singing Gregorian tunes once they landed a man on the moon 

along came a child's balloon it couldn't have come to soon

 

In my world everybody is forgiven  in my world everybody keeps giving in my world

resentments are distance welcome to my world

 

Then the money came from out of town They put it up and they tore it down Then the circus left with the clowns now I'm sitting here with the old and the new something borrowed but somethings blue it's funny how time just flew standing on the corner will work for food

 In my world everybody is forgiven my world everybody keeps giving my world

resentments are distance welcome to my world In Your world you have to scratch and fight check out if you're wrong or right you never 

even dream at night and you just sleep right through the day 

 

In my world everybody is forgiven my world everybody keeps giving my world

resentments are distance welcome to my work

 

 Here comes the rain

Here comes the rain again and again here comes the clouds blocking the sun Where is the fun? I’m not ashamed I’m not afraid here comes the rain

 All the young girls they sit and pout oldies bands sing twist and shout not too many can figure this out I don't even know what I'm talking about 

Here comes the rain again and again here comes the clouds blocking the sun Where is the fun? I’m not ashamed I’m not afraid here comes the rain

Rain comes down to water the earth not too many know what it's worth Shakespeare's in the alley electric pen spring times happening once again

Here comes the rain again and again here comes the clouds blocking the sunWhere is the fun? I’m not ashamed I’m not afraid here comes the rain

Gabriel's ready to blow his horn old McDonald had a farm all the kings horses and all the kings men can't put it back together again

Here comes the rain again and again here comes the clouds blocking the sunWhere is the fun? I’m not ashamed I’m not afraid here comes the rain

 I can see a Rainbow

 

I can see the Sun I’m standing in the rain  I can feel the wind wind is on my window pain

And I can see a rainbow There’s some things you just know (CHORUS)

I can feel the wind blow I can see a rainbow

And I can see a woman covered by the Sun Standing on the moon 

With stars on in her crown (CHORUS)

 And I can see an eagle flying in the sky I didn’t understand it I didn’t question why

 And I can see the Earth swallowing the flood And I can see your friends singing of your love (Chorus)

                                           

This is Forever

Cloud by day fire by night

In the darkness there was light

There was water but not the ocean somehow your plan was in motion

There was healing and there was love

Some anointing from above 

But seasons ( feeling) changed just like the weather but that was then this is Forever

 

 Twilight Zone


I had a dream the other night when everything was still

I dreamed I saw Patsy Cline coming up the hill

Lawrence Welks bubble machine not that far behind 

Brett and Bart Maverick arrived in the knick of time

Dobie Gillis and Mainard Crebbs Fred and Ethel and Desi Arnez

I love Lucy but she made a mess We had to call Eliot Ness

Lassi tried to tell us how to get home 

Rod Serling said your in the twilight zone

The Lone Ranger and Tonto did the best that they could

Pa and Hoss Cartwright were out there chopping wood

Larry Curly and Moe threw a pie in my face

And even Perry Mason couldn't solve this case

 Andy and Barny Fife hid me in Mayberry Opie Dobie and I ate dinner with Aunt Bee

Lassy tried to tell us how to tell us how to get home Rod Serlingsaid your in the twilight zone

Then I woke up from my dream in a cold sweat, I knew I had to write it down so I would soon forget

All those people I had the privilege to have met

If Ive forgotten any that I do regret

You ask me why I wrote this song I thing I know why cause when I watch my TV I  hang my head and cry

Remember Me

I dreamed I saw Larry Norman standing on a rock A righteous rocker and a holy

roller ain't never gonna stop remember me 

‘And there was John and George playing augmented chords Throw in a diminished and when you're finished there’s harmonies to adore 

 Remember me remember me when you write your songs remember

me when your day is long remember me when the morning comes remember me at

setting sun 

 There was Johnny Cash trying to walk the line the man in black

singing to the prisoners He says he's doing fine saying remember me (chorus)

 CS Lewis and John Paul too Mother Theresa and Charles Schultz Bob Marley and MartinLuther King Rich Mullins on Eagles wings  Remember me 

 Then he took the bread and said this is my body then he took the wine and said this is my blood remember me a 

 Remember me when you write your songs remember me when your day is long remember me when the morning comes remember me at the setting sun 


Swords into Plowshares

To you it is black and white They are wrong and you are right

Meanwhile in this darkest night The children cry

 

To you it’s a subtle thing Break their hearts and make it sting

Then you wonder why you phone don't ring The children cry

 

Oh light of the world see the nations and the flags unfurled

Oh light of the world have mercy on your boys and girls

Oh light of the world see the nations and the flags unfurled

Oh light of the world have mercy on us have mercy on us

 

Lets seek the light lets really try to teach the children how to fly 

And if we don’t they’ll wonder why the children cry

 

Oh light of the world see the nations and the flags unfurled

Oh light of the world have mercy on your boys and girls

Oh light of the world see the nations and the flags unfurled

 

Oh light of the world have mercy on us have mercy on us

Put your swords into plowshares Put your swords into plowshares

Put your swords into plowshares Lion lie down with the lamb

 

 

Beautiful Spring- 

 David Zeisberger A Moravian Missionary came to the Tuscarawas river valley in Ohio in 1771 He was invited by Delaware chief Netawetwes  to settle in on land near a spring of sparkling water called Schoenbrum which is German for beautiful spring.

 Beautiful spring near sparkling waters praises they’d   sing to their Lord and their  King our first town Schoenbrun is the land of the beautiful spring

 The mission became the first town in Ohio. Netawatwes took the Christian name of Abraham and led his people in a pledge of non-violence towards Indians and the white.

 During the time of the revolutionary war, this was  very difficult to do ,because the Indians, the British, and the Americans all wanted them to join in their side of the war  

 Beautiful spring near sparkling waters praises they’d sing to their Lord and their  King our first town Schoenbrun is the land of the beautiful spring

 Faced with increasing opposition, Abraham and his tribe fled Schoenbrum, and arrived in a nearby town called Gnadenhutten, which is German for mercy huts.

 There they met Col. David Williamson who said he would protect them, If they would put down their weapons as proof of their non violence.

 After they gave up their weapons, he told them they would die in the morning, but gave them permission to pray that night.

 I am sure those 90 martyrs prayed that night and I’m sure they longed for the innocence of the beautiful spring.

 Beautiful spring near sparkling waters praises they’d  sing to their Lord and their  King our first town Schoenbrun is the land of the beautiful spring

Get Back To The Garden

In the beginning was darkness and void The world as we knew it was unemployed

God spoke to the darkness and created the light Then came the morning and then

came the night Then God created all these living things Fish that swim and birds that sing  then  Adam gave Eve a diamond ring 

 

We got to get back to the garden

What is right and what is wrong Seems like some kind of retro song

The tree of life or the tree of death Your final answer now take a breath

The tree of life or the tree of death  This was not some kind of Vegas bet 

The die was cast and then regret Then came shame  and all that mess And then the king said let's forget We got to get back to the garden

 

 God said I'll give you a nature like mineForget the past and will be fine

We'll start again with the tree of life Then Adam took Eve for his wife. We’ve got to get

back to the garden

 

Light At The End 0f The Tunnel

 Well Im sittin hear thinking about you and me hopin we’d would make it through this rocky sea well i don’t have the answers the storm gets in the way 

Love is the key to calm the waves

 

Well i hope and pray well see the light when we come to understand there'll be peace and love they’ll be holding hands there'll be light at the end of the tunnel

 

Well Im sittin here lookin at the writing on the wall It seems to me we’re about to fall. if we don’t  change our ways if we don’t turn around if we learn to love weather right or wrong  

 

Well i hope and pray well see the light when we come to understand there'll be peace and love they’ll be holding hands there'll be light at the end of the tunnel
