YOU CAME FROM SOMEWHERE 

You came from somewhere, you came to me  
You came from somewhere helped me believe  

I went far away where no one could reach me  
Sifted through the voices to find one who could teach me  
Flattery and spies, confusion and lies  
I gave up so many good things, my reasons to try  

You came from somewhere, you came to me  
You came from somewhere helped me believe 

You know I walked in circles, I crossed all my lines 
I gave in to temptation, to see if I was alive  
I saw the beauty grow old and die  
I had to surrender my reasons to try  

You came from somewhere, you came to me  
You came from somewhere helped me believe 

I went far away where no one could reach me  
Sifted through the voices to find one who could teach me 
I saw the beauty grow old and die  
I had to surrender, no reason to try 

You came from somewhere, you came to me  
You came from somewhere helped me believe 

Somewhere, I believe
Somewhere, I believe

FEEL THE ECHOES

You say, I don’t know anymore, I say, you’re right.
You say, I don’t care anymore. Together we must fight.


When the sun comes up again
And we feel it warm our skin
Let’s do our best not to pretend
Till we meet our end


There’s no love like those younger days
We feel the echoes still today
From some place way beyond the stars
We feel the echoes, feel the echoes, we feel the echoes


You say you feel so all alone,
Let me hold you tonight.
Take my hand, we’ll make it through
Lockstep for this life


There’s no love like those younger days
We feel the echoes still today
From some place way beyond the stars
We feel the echoes, feel the echoes, we feel the echoes


When the sun comes up again
And we feel it warm our skin
Let’s do our best not to pretend
Till we meet our end


There’s no love like those younger days
We feel the echoes still today
From some place way beyond the stars
We feel the echoes
 

There’s no love like those younger days
We feel the echoes still today
From some place way beyond the stars
We feel the echoes 


There’s no love like those younger days
We feel the echoes
We feel the echoes
We feel the echoes 


Who knows how long we have 
Till we meet out end, Till we meet our end 
There’s no love like those younger days 
We feel the echoes, Feel the echoes

BEFORE THE GUNS 

Not so idle threats take place behind those steel doors 
Intimidation to escalation, the likelihood of a holy war  
Politicians getting nervous, TV news ratings soar  
Any day now, any day now, history repeats it’s worst mistake  

Before the guns we must fight,
Convince ourselves it’s not right  
Before the guns we must claim,
The call to love and not to blame,
The call to love and not to blame  

Before the guns, 
Before the guns we must fight  
Before the guns,
Before the guns, it’s not right  

The echoes of the mothers who lost their sons and daughters  
All the speeches and new monuments,
pay tribute to their slaughter and in the end it’s all the same,
we’ve got denial and we act real brave  
We bow our heads to amazing grace, 
the president says God bless this place  

Before the guns we must fight, convince ourselves it’s not right.
Before the guns we must claim
The call to love and not to blame,
The call to love and not to blame  

Before the guns,
Before the guns before the guns we must fight  
Before the guns,
Before the guns, it’s not right  

Will the earth hold up? Will the sea turn red with blood?  
Will the air grow bitter, from a single blast  

Not so idle threats take place behind those steel doors 
Intimidation to escalation, the likelihood of a bloody war  
Politicians eat their words, TV news ratings soar  
Any day now, any day now history repeats its worst mistake,  history repeats its worst mistake  

Before the guns we must fight,
Convince ourselves it’s not right  
Before the guns we must claim,
the call to love and not to blame, 
the call to love and not to blame  

Before the guns, before the guns we must fight  
Before the guns, before the guns it’s not right  
Before the guns, before the guns we must fight  
Before the guns, Before the Guns, it’s not right  
We must fight,  It’s not right,  We must fight.

IS IT LOVE

In the moonlight, in your lover’s voice
The silhouette unfolds, as the ground grows cold
You hear the same thing, you fear the same thing 

In the Autumn wind when dry colors burn
The skeletons dance beneath the dark skyline

Is it love you're looking for, Is It love you’re looking for 
Is it Love, Love, Love, Is it love you’re looking for. 

In the thunder clouds, mountains of rain to fall
In the twisting wind you hear the name that’s called
You hear the same thing, you fear the same thing
Is it love you're looking for, Is it love you're looking for
Is it Love, Love, Love, Is it love you’re looking for.

In a child’s eyes
In every lover’s voice
In a baby’s cry.
We’ve really got no choice
We’ve really got no choice  

Is it love you're looking for, Is It love you’re looking for 
Is it Love, Love, Love, Is it love you’re looking for. 
Is it love you're looking for, Is It love you’re looking for 

Is it Love, Love, Love, Is it love you’re looking for. 

It’s in my child’s eyes
It’s in my mother’s voice
And when I take your hand
We’ve really got no choice 

Is it love you're looking for, Is It love you’re looking for 
Is it Love, Love, Love, Is it love you’re looking for. 
Love you’re looking for.

YOU RESCUED ME

Only in our inner space can we ever find true grace
All are lost, to be found, we are loved
Drifting through our outer space searching for that one true face Wandering, then home at last, we are loved

You rescued me,
Broke the curse that covered me

Fear to lose what we don’t have, believing even good is bad Morning sun dissolves the night, we are loved
Washed with tears we cannot help, cleanse our hearts inside out Bring us through with healing grace, we are loved

You rescued me,
Broke the curse that covered me
If I have any chance, it’s your love that rescues me
If I have any chance, it’s your love that rescues me

Only in our inner space can we ever find true grace
All are lost, to be found, we are loved
Everyone a refugee, hoping for delivery
Day by day and night by night, we are loved

If I have any chance,
It’s your love that rescues me
If I have any chance,
It’s your love that rescues me
You rescued me,
Broke the curse that covered me
If I have any chance,
It’s your love that rescues me
If I have any chance,
It’s your love that rescues me
