When the show is over, the time is right

When the light begins to fade away
And darkness comes to fill the day
When water collides with the sandy shore
And the wind blows through you more and more
When the air is cool and the moon is low
When the voices stop and we’re all alone
Our truth is safe at the top of the hill
And the seasons change but time is still
In the shade by the tree in the heart of the land
Backstage without the rest of the band
When the show is over, the time is right
We will kiss on the roof by the stars tonight

Take me home

For many years, I’ve traveled down this long and winding road.
If I never find the answer, take me home.

My body aches from walking, blistered heels have made me slow.
If I never reach the good land, take me home.

There’s no reason for distractions – how the world just breaks my hands.
I don’t need another fracture, take me home.

I’ve heard so many things here that I wish I could forget.
If I never hear the bells ring, take me home.

Take me home
Take me home
If I never hear the bells ring
Take me home

There are daisies here beside me growing tall to heaven’s floor.
If I let this place surround me, take me home.

Many turns have left me weary. Any day now I could fail.
If I can’t see my way clearly, take me home.

My comfort is forgiveness through the Lord’s amazing grace.
If I ever cease to witness, take me home.

Over bridges, under trees – how your love has kept me safe.
If I lose the love within me, take me home.

Take me home
Take me home
If I should lose the love within me
Take me home

Don’t weep

Don’t weep, little eye, it’s not the same from here.
The clouds are rollin’ by to polish your frontier.
You’re safe inside the sun in the light that ever glows.
The old is all gone and the new already knows.

Your emptiness is full. Take a scoop and pass the rest.
You don’t have to ride the bull to feel a beat inside your chest.
Don’t weep, little eye, it’s not the same from here.
When you see the world go by, His promise is so clear.

Say, say you don’t mind. There’s time for day – there’s time for night.
Say, say it’s alright. There’s time to pray – there’s time to cry.

This will be my truth

To see that wonderful smile on your face
is why I woke today.
Everything everywhere sticks to the web
and we don’t have a say.

I don’t care much for this world
if I can’t share it with you.
Hold me in your paradise and
this will be my truth.

Minute to hour, day to year –
change will always come,
but time could never keep me here
if you were not the one.

And if the skies ahead should fall
I’d give my all to stand with you.
Hold me in your paradise and
this will be my truth.

Your endless hope and promises
to love at any cost
have painted me a gallery of
dreams that won’t be lost.

Shadows to night, morning to light –
my mind will be on you.
Hold me in your paradise and
this will be my truth.
