Lyrics to LifeStories vol. 2


I'm Healed

 

Tried my very best
yet failing every test
Praying everyday
But you seem so far away

I know you know my heart
What’s keeping us apart?
Tell me what to do
Cause it all depends on you.

Old life over, my heart sober
I’m healed
Old life over, my heart sober
I’m healed

I started feeling what I missed
Saw my eternity at risk
If I stayed behind the wheel
And kept living what I feel

It didn’t happen in a flash
That kind don’t always last
For months I ran away
Couldn’t hear what you’d said

 

Old life over my heart sober
I’m healed
Old life over my heart sober
I’m healed

Friends told me oh so long
But I just knew that they were
wrong
Didn’t want to walk that path
called Humble Avenue
But God kept on with all this
love
Drops of mercy from above
I finally gave in
Who’d believe that I could win!
My life, so much is over
And my heart is sober
I’m healed
Now my heart has a home, yeah,
yeah

Old life over, my heart sober
I’m healed

 

Old life over, my heart sober
I’m healed

I ain’t dead no more
Not confused no more
I don’t hate no more, why —
‘cause I’m healed
I don’t cry no more
Don’t hide in bed no more
Don’t run scared no more
See, I’m healed

Should’d seen me way back then
Who’d believe that I could win
Done went and found myself a
Friend
I am healed

Ya’ll told me long ago
I was too stubborn then to know
Just happy puttin’ on a show
Now I’m healed

 

Meditation (Psalm 19 & 20)

 
 

May these words of my
mouth and the meditation
of my heart
May these words of my
mouth and the meditation
of my heart

Be pleasing in your sight
My redeemer, my rock
My redeemer, my Lord

May the Lord answer you
when you are in trouble,
distressed
May the name of the God of
Jacob protect you

May he send you help from
the sanctuary
May He recall your sacrifice

And may He give you the
desires of your heart
And make all your plans
succeed.

May these words of my
mouth and the meditation
of my heart
May these words of my
mouth and the meditation
of my heart

Be pleasing in your sight
My redeemer, my rock
My redeemer, my Lord

 
 

JOY

 
 

I’ve got joy and it won’t let me go
In the face of my trouble I see joy
I’ve got joy and it won’t let me go
In the face of my trouble I see joy

Moving thru the circle of life
Rounding the last turn
Going as fast as I dare go
Soon it all will end
Wake up with my worries right there
End each day with doubt
In between God’s joy all in the air
Brand new day, brand new start

I’ve got joy and it won’t let me go
In the face of my trouble I see joy
I’ve got joy and it won’t let me go
In the face of my trouble I see joy

It’s unspeakable
Unbelievable
I’ve got joy and it won’t let me go

repeat verse

It’s unspeakable
Unbelievable
I’ve got joy and it won’t let me go
It’s unspeakable
Unbelievable
I’ve got joy and it won’t let me go

Problem solv-able
And un-break-able
Let’s take flight-able
Don’t make sens-ible
Un-de-ni-a-ble
The Joy of The Lord is my strength

So I keep on singing
and dancing
I’m ma Shout it!
ooh I’m praisin’
Ohh yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah
I see Joy
The Joy of The Lord is my strength,
Somebody ought to know, the Joy of The
Lord is my strength, my strength
I really mean Joy, He’s been so - very -
good - to - me
I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day
oh yeah, yeah, yeah
oh yeah, yeah, yeah

 

I Need You

 
 

I need you in the dark of
nite, and at the break of
day
I need you when all
around seems right or
nothin’ goes my way
I need you when I’m so
afraid that I can hardly
stand
Or when I’m bold and
brave and think that I
could never fall.

I need you, oh I need you
Every, every hour I need
you, oh bless me now my
savior, I come to thee.

I need you before my daily
pain comes to my front
door
Remind me Spirit of The
Lord, you’ve walked me
thru heartache before.

I need you when I
understand not one thing
at all
Learning to trust you Lord,
it took so long but now my
heart is yours.

I need you, oh I need you
Every hour I need you, oh
bless me now my savior, I
come to thee.

 

See Me

 
 

Whenever you see me by
myself, don’t leave me that
way
Whenever see me dark and
down, you’ve got to come
down there pick me up again
Whenever it seems I’m not in
the moment, bring me back to
reality
whenever you see whatever
you see, see me you’ve got to
see me friend

chorus
I need some one to see me
I need some one to see me
(I’m always going to need
someone to see me)
I want some one to see me
I need some one to see me
Will you see me my friend

Whenever you see my smile
upside down,
please take some time and turn
me around and around
If ever you see what is met to
be
You’re looking right at me
Whenever it seems things are
getting rough, I’m expecting
you, I need for you to deal with
me
Whenever you see whatever
you see, see me; you’ve got to
see me my friend

chorus

I can’t stand for you to leave me
alone
I’m not very good on my own
But I know that you care,
So you gotta be there, gotta be
there
chorus
Will you see me my friend, my
friend
I’m gonna need to be seen

 
 

City Called Tomorrow

 
 

I don’t need to worry, I
don’t need to fret
I’m not gonna hurry, then
later on regret

And what should I be
thinking bout these
memories in my head
Keep hoping in the future
don’t choose the past
instead

I’m not ready to give up yet
I can see around the bend

There’s a place they call
tomorrow
Joy it holds for me within.

Given half a chance I’ll
falter
But don’t look the other
way
Cause in me there is a
Power
And He’s not going to go
away

Choosing wisely much
more often

I’m not satisfied but I’m
content
And if you ask me whose
my hero
I’ll say He’s coming back
again

He runs the City called
tomorrow
And there I’ll always have a
home
Until I get there I’ll live
hopeful
Cause that’s the place that I
belong (repeat)

 

Glory To Your Name

 
 

Glory to your name cause every day
your the same
Even birds and trees proclaim
So we join and say,
Glory to your name
Glory to your name

We bow at your feet, we are your
children redeemed
All of your people shout and sing

inside, oh oh oh

When You Smile

 
 

When you smile my love,
What matters most right then is that
I'm still breathing
When you smile my love,
What's happening right then is my
thoughts cannot deceive me
And when you smile my love, no
matter how long the day
Things just get easier
When you smile my love,
I know that God is pleased

When you smile my love,
Causes flowers to relax and release
their fragrance
When you smile my love,
Children laugh for seemingly no
reason
And when you smile my love,
Gives me hope that better will be
tomorrow
And when you smile my love
Seems like God is pleased.

Bridge
The two become one
Live their lives for the Son
Breaking all the rules
That say surrendering makes you some
kinda fool
They pass the test of time
Who keep their vows on their minds
And when you smile my love,
Another day that I can win,
Pleasing you means pleasing Him
When you smile my love

 

It Took Longer

 
 

Psalm 30 says:
Weeping may endure for a nite,
but joy comes with the morning
But when the morning comes,
its recovery time and its
amazing how long it can take to
get over, to recover, to
forgive…


It took longer than I thought it
would
Longer than I thought it would
It took longer than I thought it
would
To get over this
To get over that
To forget about these
And find healing from that

It took longer than, so much
longer than I thought it would

 
 
 

This Is Better

 
 

This is better, better by far
I turned over my life,
I said yes to Jesus Christ
And this is better, better by far
I surrendered to the one who
made me
Gave him my life, let him save me
This is better

Verse
In all my life nothing has been
more evident
Jesus is the Betterment
Since he came into my life.
Faithful when I’ve rejected
But I won’t do it again
No I won’t do it again

chorus
