Let Me See Her

 

My neck hurts from looking behind

A memory flashed and I lost my mind

I wasn’t here but in another time

Let me see

Let me see

Let me see her

It’s like I take one step forward and two steps back

I pray to God to let me move but I sit here while the devil attacks

I’ve been here so many times I think I’ve lost track

Let me see

Let me see

Let me see her

I know God that she’s your daughter

Let me see her like You do

I know in your hands you got her

Let me see her like you do

I know what she did , that’s not her

Let me see her like you do

It’s crazy how life got in the way

We grew apart until that fateful day

That’s the day she decided not to pray

Let me see

Let me see

Let me see her

Oh God let me forget, I just wanna forget

Maybe the lesson to be learned hasn’t happened yet

Her sins are forgiven , You paid that debt

Let me see

Let me see

Let me see her

I know God that she’s your daughter

Let me see her like You do

I know in your hands you got her

Let me see her like you do

I know what she did , that’s not her

Let me see her like you do

Oh God I’m tired of being angry

Oh God I know this person isn’t me

Oh God help me to see, help me to see

Oh God Help me to forgive

Oh God I just want to live

Oh God to Your will let me submit

Let me see

Let me see

Let me see her

Let me see her God like you do

Let me see her God like you do

Angry

Hitchcock Movies

I wrote this one today, thought about saving it because it’s different than most of the other songs I have written.  I picture it being harder, faster,  maybe Skillet, Thousand Foot Krutch or NF could take it on. LOL, I can only dream.  Well, since I have all but given up on my words becoming songs you get to be the first ones to see what’s in my head today. After all, it seems like every time I give up on something in my life, God steps in so….. I will wait, I know in God’s time and His will. Maybe it will never happen.  Until it does or until it doesn’t….I will let God take these words where He wants them to go.  I will keep writing what He puts in my head.

Hitchcock Movies
I wanna be a Marvel superhero

But I always feel like I’m less than zero

Did I just say that? Let me push rewind

Man I’ve been messed up a long time

I want the whole world to know my name

Maybe I’m just playing the wrong game

I can’t believe these choices I make

Man, I think I’m losing my way, I’ve lost my way

It’s like I’m tearing my world apart

Ripping out my heart, do I have a heart?

Can’t you see me? Can’t you see me? Can’t you see….

It seems like I have Hitchcock movies playing in my head

I have killer birds and psycho killers

I don’t know what I’m gonna do, my soul is dead

I only need one thing but I have all these fillers

 

I push you away, tell you to leave

Then ask, why won’t you reach out to me?

Why are all these demons in my head?

Man, I’d be better off dead, am I already dead?

I want to rip out my brain, am I going insane?

If I’m being honest I know I’m the only one to blame

Oh my God what have I done?

Oh my God what have I become?

Can’t you see me? Can’t you see me? Can’t you see….

It seems like I have Hitchcock movies playing in my head

I have killer birds and psycho killers

I don’t know what I’m gonna do, my soul is dead

I only need one thing but I have all these fillers

I’m on my knees

Begging you please

Take my life, take my life, take my life

Cut these demons out, I’ll give you the knife

Can’t you see I’ve hit the bottom

I’m no longer fighting Him, fighting Him

Rip off these chains

Take my shame

You alone have taken my sin, You alone give me reason to live

You alone forgive all, You alone forgive all, You alone forgive

You can see me, You can see me, I know you see….

It seems like I have Hitchcock movies playing in my head

I have killer birds and psycho killers

I don’t know what I’m gonna do, my soul is dead

I only need one thing but I have all these fillers

I only need one thing

I Can’t Even Put It In A Song

 

When we met I wrote it all down

You were my queen, I gave you the crown

Our love was like a fairy tale

I found the one who wouldn’t fail

The dream was real, the love was true

I found myself falling more in love with you

The days turned to months turned to years

You knew about my past and all my fears

Then the devil took you aside

Told you more than one lie

I can’t believe you did me so wrong

I can’t even put it in a song



All the lies you had to make up

All the fights the kids had to break up

You were acting like you were an angel

But you were no longer being faithful

You turned our lives into a war zone

Our once happy house was no longer a home

Here I am again without words to say

Trying to live my life day by day

Those four months seemed so long

I can’t even put it in a song


Then one day God stepped in

He had enough of the sin

Ripped your heart, gave you new

Told me to stay, I still loved you

Tears flowed like the river Jordan

You broke down and let the Lord in

His forgiveness and His love

All the healing came from Above

A three chord strand, our love is strong

Now I can even put it in a song

Graduation Song

 

May is graduation month. I wrote this a year ago.  Hope you like it.  Let’s turn it into a song-  contact me.

Graduation Song

Going off to college
Filling your head with knowledge
Don’t wish away your youth
Never forget God is the truth

Maybe college isn’t your thing

Maybe you have some other dream

Don’t be afraid to reach for the stars
Having a good character will take you far

When challenges face you
Ask what would Jesus do
When you are pressured
Remember in God you are treasured

Put your faith in Jesus
He is always with us
When you are up late at night
I pray you will do what is right

My child, going out on your own
Hard to believe how fast you’ve grown
I know in God’s arms you will be held
I put my trust in He who has never failed

Choose your friends wisely
Don’t follow them blindly
Call home more than you thought you would
Say I love you more than you think you should

Don’t forget where you come from
Remember when this life is done
You will account for your time on this earth
Did you live for what His dying was worth

Forgive as you have been forgiven
Be joyful in this life you are livin’
Smile and laugh, speak of Him often
His words are never to be forgotten

My child, going out on your own
Hard to believe how much you’ve grown
I know in God’s arms you will be held
I put my trust in He who has never failed

Our house will always be your home
It’s hard to believe how fast you’ve grown
Enjoy life, you won’t be alone in the big out there
God’s promises, our love, we will always care

My child, going out on your own
Hard to believe how much you’ve grown
I know in God’s arms you will be held
I put my trust in He who has never failed

I put my trust in He who has never failed

If I Were An Island

 

If I were an island

In the Caribbean Sea

Would you come hold my hand?

Would you visit me ?

If I were a mountain

How high would you climb?

If the winds were poundin’

Would you keep looking if you ran out of time?

If I were an ocean

If the waves would turn and toss

How deep is your devotion?

Would you still sail across?

If I were a desert

If the sun was beating down

Would you walk until you hurt ?

How far would you go for me to be found?

If I were the sky

Would you say there’s not a chance?

Or would you learn to fly?

Overcome the circumstance

If I asked you to take my place

Could you ignore all the chaos?

Would you give me the same grace?

If it were you instead of Me on that cross

Would you crawl, walk, run?

How far would you go, what would you do?

Do you understand what I’ve done?

Do you not realize how much I love you?

No Clue

 

You think you love me but you have no clue

‘Bout the heartbreak I’m about to give you

You think I’m an angel but the devil’s inside

Once you’re in my sights there’s no place to hide

I smile as you fall into my trap

Your heart is a package I slowly unwrap

One date turned to two turned to four

Before I knew it this was turning into more

At first all I wanted was your kiss

Now when you leave it’s your heart I miss

What is changing inside of me

Feelings I never had take root like a tree

My heart aches, time is never enough

Is this, could this, am I falling in love

Here goes, I tell you how I feel

Your words cut me like sharp steel

Then you get up and walk away

You tell me you were never here to stay

You thought you were going to play me but I was playing you

That’s the way the devil works and you had no clue

If It’s Only An Hour

 

Many of us always seem to be too busy to spend time with our significant others. I know my wife and I are really bad about making times for ourselves. It is something we always talk about but seldom do. We get up early to work or work out, we go all day and Kylie goes to bed at 9:30 then we are right behind her, getting rest for the next early morning. However, I know there is time if we make it. What about you? Do you make the time? 30 minutes, an hour, if that’s all you have make them count.

If It’s Only An Hour

If it’s only an hour

To help our love flower

Then I will take the time

To keep our love alive


 

If it’s only sixty minutes

Then I will buy  the tickets

We will dance to each song

We will keep this love strong


 

If it’s only three thousand six hundred seconds

In each and every one I will be present

We will laugh and talk

We will hold hands as we walk


 

If it’s only sixty minutes

This my dear, you can believe it

I will  reconnect with you

I will do everything I can do


 

If it’s only an hour

I will do all that’s in my power

To show you what our love  means to me

To show you, show you  what I see

Until God gives us another hour
