Glory and the Flame

we are hungry and we are haunted
we are groping in the night
we are wrestling with our pain
we are losing the fight
we are liars and we are dreamers
we're the guilty ones to blame
and we're living out this nightmare
between the glory and the flame

we are pilgrims and we are strangers
we are names without a face
we are stranded on this crumbling rock
dangling in space
we are heroes and we are villians
we are lost within our shame
and we're banished to this twilight
between the glory and the flame

we are outlaws and we are wounded
with our backs against the wall
we are standing at the crossraods
with the axe about to fall
we are madmen and we are children
with a lesson to be learned
we are sitting in the ashes
of the bridges we have burned
we are hoping and we are praying
we are holding to the claim
that He's coming back to meet us
between the glory and the flame

Die Young

the windows of the world
are open wide tonight
and everyone is dreaming
'neath the starry light
but I can't sleep at all
and dreams just wate my time
I'll catch a thrill across the danger line

don't think about tomorrow
it might never come
have a good time and die young

now people talk of hope
but I'm not that naive
and I'm not in the mood
for playing make believe
the future's dead and cold
so I'll just cash it in
and play for laughs if I can't play to win

CHORUS

the windows of the world
are open wide tonight
and everyone is dying
'neath the starry light
but I just can't slow down
the wheels turn too fast
I wanna burn on white hot till the last

Fifth Avenue Breakdown

did you ever get the feeling
that you're trying to hard
when you're all dressed up
and you're out on the boulevard
looking for another likely face
and going through the same old number
looking in the same old place

well it's a neon night
and all the cars are moving slow
and they circle once more
'cause there's no place else to go
and it all looks like
some crazy masquerade
and you're feeling like a thirsty pilgrim
searching for a piece of shade

now sometimes don't you wish you had
    wings
and you culd just fly away
singing bye bye baby
free from all the empty dreams
that let you down
they let you down

still you're all wound up
'cause you're stranded on your own
ain't it funny how a crowded street
makes you feel alone
and your heart keeps saying
baby something's got to give
and it looks like everyone's in limbo
waiting for the chance to live
waiting for the chance to live
waiting for the cahnce to live

Grandfather's Song

dearest old friend
gone away with the wind
on a morning in sunny july
when it suddenly came
it was calling your name
and you left without telling us why

but still you will find
the ones you left behind
will not forget you my friend
oh we all understand
you just never liked saying goodbye

well I guess that I knew
you were just passing through
like the billowing clouds in the sky
now your ship has come in
and your voyage begins
and I'm trying to learn not to cry

you're sailing away
but I believe that some day
I will see you again
becuase I know you're my freind
and you never liked saying goodbye

Find Your Way To Me

when your heart is aching
and you just can't stop the pain
when you feel like a lost and lonely child
crying in the rain
there is Someone you can run to
who will love you faithfully
little one you can find your way to Me

find your way to Me
find your way on to Me
find your way to Me
you can find your way to Me

when your fears surround you
when you're weary from the fight
when you heart feels like an angry fist
that pounds against the night
there is Someone you can turn to 
oh there's Someone you should see
littl one you can find your way to Me

CHORUS

you can see Me at a distance
cause I'm never far from you
and I'll be there in an instant
if you want Me to

when your soul feels empty
and you really don't know why
if you need Someone who'll understand
when you just break down and cry
I've been waiting to be with you
and I give My love for free
oh I give My love for free
little one you can find your way to Me

Christine

I see you every night
on channel seven, Christine
like a vision in the silvery light
and each day drags by so slowly
till eleven, Christine
how I hunger for your sight

now all my so-called friends
they say that I'm a fool
they say that you don't
even know I'm there
oh but they don't see
that magic twinkle in your eye
the special one
that says how much you care

oh wait for me, Christine
I'm only time away
and I know that camera man
he's got his eye on you
but he don't love you like I do
no one could love you like I do, Christine

you give me so much more
than just the news my love
I memorize each precious thing you say
but our thirty minutes
always seem to fly so fast
I guess when you're in love
it's just that way

I know we'll be together
someday soon, Christine
and fate will let it happen
when it's right
but until that special day
I'll blow a kiss and say
goodnight, Christine goodnight

Rainbow

Rainbow around my door
I've seen You here before
You greet me every day
send the night far away

Rainbow I've learned Your name
You saved us from the rain
here in Your wonderous light
I know everything's all right

when You're near me I can tell
that You know me very well
suddenly my deepest fears
disappear
oh oh You're my

Rainbow so bright and true
and when my life is through
please take me by the hand
lead me to that Rainbow land

Rainbow You're my friend
and where the Rainbow ends
I know You've made a place
where I'll see You face to face

oh oh You're my Rainbow

(There is a little rainbow
it's shining in the sky
and when I saw it as it shined
I always wondered why
why the pretty colors
came shining down each time
But now I know the rainbow
And that's the reason why)

Givin' It Up For Love

babe I know that you've been burned
but then everybody gets their turn
and all the fear you feel inside
it's made you run to find a place to hide
you build your forterss safe and sound
but you're not really safe until you tear it
   down

giving it up for love
giving it up for love
giving it up for love
giving it up

sweet distrations baby they feel so fine
but they only steal your precious time
and that's a losing game you play baby
and you've got to tear yourself away
well it's a battle
and you might bleed,
but that's the price you pay
for what you need

CHORUS

giving it up for love
giving it up for love
giving it up for for all the love you need now

you chase your dreams, baby, and
they shine like gold
but the leave you empty in the cold
you set your course for better days
and end up last inside the maze
if you keep running your race alone
your only prize will be a heart of stone!

Letter To My Family

father, you are older than me
and in many ways you are wise
but all of my life it's hurt to see
the sadness that's in your yes
and I know that your life has been hard
and you struggled to do your best
now I want you to share the love I've
   found
and give your poor heart a rest

and He'll draw close to you
if you'd only ask Him to
He would understand your heart's
most secret prayer
and He's waiting there

mother, I could never forget
your laughter and your worried tears
and all of the loving things you did
to help me through those painful years
and I know when you've given your heart
life has often been unkind
but turning away you just might miss
the love you've waited years to find

and He'll draw close to you
if you'd only ask Him to
let Him wash away the bitterness and fear
you'll see He's here

dear brother, I remember the days
when I'd tag along to play
and all of the childish angry things
we never really meant to say
and I know that those boys have grown 
   up
and we'll never play those games again
and that's why I hope you'll understand
and listen to me as a friend

and He'll draw close to you
if you'd only ask Him to
let Him have the chance
to show what love can do
It's there for you

Farther On

we're all traveling on a journey
born to find our native land
like a scattered tribe returning
tracing the ancient plan
leaving the desert sand

we've found a highway few have taken
winding up the mountainside
other roads must be forsaken
crossing the great divide
to love on the other side

and farther on the night will come
we'll struggle on through the rain
but we know that morning brings the sun
lighting our way again

and Someone's walked this road before
Someone who knows the way
with every new mile we trust Him more
following day by day
and we follow

though the rocky road gets steeper
we will never turn around
Jesus is our guide and keeper
and sharing His love we've found
we're joyfully homeward bound
a Friend we can lean on
is leading us farther on
