5 Aug 1980

keep on, keep on driving
even when the lights go out
and you just can’t figure it out
keep on, keep on walking
when the darkness falls around
and the circumstances confound you

Jesus, did I love your blessings
more than I loved you
Jesus, take away your blessings
still I will love you

stand on, stand on his word
when the earth crumbles beneath your feet
and you can’t help feeling defeated
hold on, hold on to his hand
when the sky tumbles into the street
and your dreams lie on the concrete

Jesus, did I love your...

let go
why is it so hard just to let go
let me give you all the good things that I’ve planned
do you believe that I love you?
I know, I know all your dreams
but do you know I’ve got some dreams for you
can you trust me to make them come true
they’re good dreams
no matter how empty they may seem
but you can’t see beyond your loneliness
no, I don’t go back on my promises
don’t you remember
you belong to me

trust me, please
I just want to make you happy
don’t hang on to your love
it...

yesterday at the fair you really took me for a ride
you said if I’d surrender you’d keep me satisfied
but after just one time around it all came down the same
leaving me to hate myself for playing in your game

liar, liar
you really took me for a ride
liar, liar
you’d better run and

you’ve been saying so long you’ve got exactly what I need
you sold me to a dream marked "satisfaction guaranteed"
I wanted so to believe you, you know I blinded my own eyes
but now I recognize you beneath your foul disguise

liar,...

Life is like a melody
rhythm and rhyme and harmony
sweet and simple sunshine melody
since he came into my life
bad times are gone
good times have arrived
and life with him is like a melody

it's such a shame
the way we complicate our lives
when God meant us to lead
a simple life
it's such a shame the way we let a dark cloud
take away our song
when we should be teaching
someone to sing along

(repeat chorus)

oh, there are times I get
so tired of singing songs
when I begin to think there's
something wrong
but...

all her silver's sittin'
in a row on the shelf
along with a fine-carved wood
how I wish she could have made it
she always wanted the good things
and now they've got her

she's got a golden car with a
six on the floor and
shoes for every day of the year
will she ever hear the children?
she used to bend down and touch them
now she just looks down

yesterday she could see the world
the way a child alone can see
and I can remember how she used to
smile at me but today she could only
cry

she told me she'd had enough of God

last night on the road
there was a guy thumbin' a ride
and I said, “Lord, I'd pick him up,
but I've gotta get where I'm
goin' on time.” I said,
“Can't it wait 'till tomorrow
when I've got more time to waste?”
but the Lord said,
“Do it now, my child,
cause tomorrow will be too late.”

love your brother now, my brother
please don't hesitate
there's not a kind of love that's worse
than a love that comes too late
now's the time to show some kindness
man, why do you wait?
don't let the only love you'...

I've been seeing things that I just shouldn't see
and I've been trying to be things in my mind I shouldn't be
I've been going places I really shouldn't go
Lord, You're my last chance for life and love
I know, I know, oh

make me pure and holy, Lord
make me kind and true
make me free to love, Jesus
make me just like You
I remember when You used to be
my best and closest friend
and You always gave me
your sweet love
please help me to give it back again

I've been trying to feel things I've got no right to feel
I've gotten so confused...

when I say you're a part of me
I'm not just making rhyme
there's a bond of love between us
that grows stronger with the time
I can feel your loving touch
no matter where you are
and I know you're right here with me
thoug it seems so very far
and I am

measuring the distance between our hearts
measuring the moments since we've been apart
counting all the times I've felt the warmth of
your smile
falling more in love with you each day
and every mile

I feel just like a magnet
and you're my counterpart
I feel the most...

my beloved is the chiefest
of ten thousand anywhere
he is altogether lovely
he is altogether fair
my beloved is so gentle
and is strong beyond compare

Lyrics & notes

2 Sep 1976

why do we pretend to hold Your life
in forms that just can't bend?
we just maintain
how can we confine the good, good news
to names on dotted lines?
it's such a strain
if we could only take down
all the umbrellas we have built
we could receive His latter rain now

Jesus, I am thirsty for new wine
I have been so dry for such a long time
long, long time
only let me bear the fruit of Your vine
then lead me to Your winepress
and drink me
while I drink You

how can we describe Your sweet, holy fire
in words so cold we strive...
