Introduction

Original and similar lyrics
Hey there everybody Please don't romp or roam We're a little nervous 'Cause we're so far from home So this is what we do Sit back and let us groove And let us work on you We've all spent years preparing before this band was born With heaven's help it blended And we do thank the lord. Now we put you through the changes And turned around the mood We hope it's struck you different And hope you feel moved So forget about your troubles As we search for something new And we play for you

In The Hands Of Love

Dream Academy "Remembrance Days"
I, I was never very young I walk like a stranger through this world No, no you don't know me Although I'm with you I'm so far away... But it wasn't the heat that Threw the night into turmoil Put the city in darkness And soldiers on the street But the car Burning up on the roadside For all those in exile Waiting to be released In city Surrounded by slums Invaded by soldiers Invaded by debt Under dictator Who escalates terror Provoking further Intensive civil unrest And in the fear of The nights' disappearances A conspiracy of silence Spread up around us like a wall Between commemoration candles And the twelve o'clock curfew You started to feel less Until you couldn't feel at all Stood on the wrong side Of the barricades in the national strike Then became exile Remember: Soldiers shooting into the crowd at the university Growing up under government Where to be young is to be the enemy Remember: Where soldiers tear gas churches And there's ten thousand missing persons Whose cases are never solved And the government advises not to get involved No Te Metas... Someday we'll return there From the years spent in exile To the land where we were born From the years spent in exile Someday we'll be free there in the land where we were born.

Have It All

Ace Troubleshooter
Counting down, expecting latest, greatest Newest model maybe, hope Wishing, hoping, praying To outdo the Joneses Heaven tomorrow Heaven, my chance to have it all Squalor, impulse, crowding, tis the season Do the days turn just for these? Savior born in manger Please forgive us born in the Inn Heaven tomorrow Heaven, my chance to have it all See all my glimmering weakness Here's my world, come on will You come in? Brought to my knees Child I'll play for You Child enters in this world, it's broken Angels sing and men sleep the night Though it's brazen and defiant Please be born in my heart Heaven tomorrow Heaven, skies open, pour out hope See all my glimmering weakness Here's my world, come on will You come in? Brought to my knees Child I'll play for You

We Laugh At Danger (And Break All The Rules)

AGAINST ME! "Against Me! Is Reinventing Axl Rose"
It was a birthday gift of a Mexican Telecaster And from this day on I will play along to all my young pioneers records And there will be a poetry spoken silently between me and the stereo I'll work mornings and you can work through the night Mary, there is no hope for us If this GM van don't make it across the state line we might as well lay down and die Because if Florida takes us we're taking everyone down with us Where we're coming from (yeah) will be the death of us And I cannot help but hold on to a handful of times when what was spoken was a revolution in itself, and what we were doing was the only thing that mattered And how good it felt to kill the memory of nights spent holding your shirt for the smell I heard you used to cry when you made love to him but this band will play on Because all we can do is what we've always done. And on and on and on...

The You In Me

MONTELL JORDAN "Montell Jordan"
VERSE 1 I know I've spent my whole life running from you Even though there's been some things you needed me to do I did it my way and hurt you over and over again But you were preparing me To carry out our plan Though you said that you'd walk with me, some won't believe Cause the messenger you chose sings R B So the man that you rescued me from is the man that they still And I don't know what to say I need you to speak for me CHORUS So Lord, this is my prayer Your work in progress humbly asks of thee Once your promise is fulfilled, the world will be watching anxiously Lord help someone to see, the YOU in ME Lord help just one to see, the YOU in ME VERSE 2 Someone listening right now needs to hear this tonight Cause you're lonely and there's an emptiness you're trying to fill in your life Well I guarantee that my God can do it, yes He can His name is JESUS You've got to let him in, and say CHORUS Lord, this is my prayer Your ¡°work in progress¡± humbly asks of thee (of thee, of thee) When your promise has been fulfilled And the whole world is watching anxiously Lord help someone to see, the YOU in ME (Oh Lord) Just help one to see, the YOU in ME (Please Jesus) If only one could see, the YOU in ME BISHOP EDDIE L. LONG I want to speak to you right now In the midst of your struggles, in the midst of your pain, in the midst of your confusion You wonder, ¡°why am I here?¡± Glad you asked that questions God said, You're set apart for a special work, for His glory That others will see you, but not see you and see HIM Oh you need to hear this; you need to hear this because You've been listening to the wrong people He ordained you, and you don't need anyone else's approval You've come fully equipped to do what God ordained you to do You existed with God, even before you were formed in your mother's womb God knew you It is amazing You've tried everybody and everything Jesus says, ¡°stop fighting God¡± stop fighting He's knocking at your heart, saying, ¡°let me in¡± You're so special Let the glory of the Lord come through you, in the midst of all your confusion He loves you REPEAT CHORUS/ADLIB/END Lord, Lord my, my, my, my prayer I'm just a work in progress, but I'm asking you, I'm begging you¡­ When you're promise has been fulfilled, and the world is watching anxiously Come on and help someone, Oh Lord I don't want nobody to see Montell, if they can't see you I'm talking to somebody, can I get a witness You gotta see past the man, in order to see the You in me

Work Me, Lord

JANIS JOPLIN "I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!"
Work me Lord, work me Lord. Please don't you leave me, I feel so useless down here With no one to love Though I've looked everywhere And I can't find me anybody to love, To feel my care. So ah work me Lord, whoa use me Lord, Don't you know how hard it is Trying to live all alone. Every day I keep trying to move forward, But something is driving me, oh, back, Honey, something's trying to hold on to me, To my way of life. So don't you forget me down here, Lord, No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, Ah, ah, don't you forget me, Lord. Well I don't think I'm any very special Kind of person down here, I know better, But I don't think you're gonna find anybody, Not anybody who could say that they tried like I tried, The worst you can say all about me Is that I'm never satisfied. Whoa. Whoa, oh, oh, work me Lord, hmm, use me Lord, Please, honey, don't you leave me, I feel so useless down here. I can't find me anybody to love me And I've looked around, I've looked everywhere, everywhere And I can't find me anyone to love, To feel my care. So honey don't you go and leave me, Lord, No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, Honey, don't you go off and leave me, Lord. Can't I show you how hard it is Trying to live when you're all alone. Everyday I keep pushing, Keep trying to move forward But something is driving me, oh, back, And something's trying to hold on to me, To my way of life, why. Oh please, please, oh don't you go and Forget me down here, don't forget me, Lord. I think that maybe you can ease me, Maybe I can help you, said uh whoa, Oh please, please, don't you go and leave me Lord, No, no, no, no, no, no, no, whoa, whoa please, Hmm please, don't you leave me, Lord.
