It Can’t Get Any Better

Free As Air

Theres a black man kneeling at the altar 1865 is barely three months old
a rebel man kneels down beside him and says this is what the south should stand for

Raising his hands over their heads he said you are free
you are free
Raising his hands over their heads Abe set them free
As free as air

An old man kneeling in the shadow waiting for the hope of glory
theres a Holy man hanging up above us this is what the cross stands for

Raising his hands over their heads he said you are free you are free
Raising his hands over their heads Christ set them free
As free as air
As free as air

Raising his hands over their heads he said you are free you are free
raising his hands over their heads Christ set us free
As free as air

 

Time Stands Still

When you see me walking down the street
If you hear me say your name
Youll know I love you
I do

I want to take you take you in my dreams
Will you hold me in your arms
Ill know you love me
Youll love me if you do

Raging rivers in the month of May
Sunrise on a glorious day
One day your love will come to me
An echo through eternity
Time stands still when Im thinking of you

When the night time comes again
youre lying there wondering will my love pull you through loneliness gets the best of you

I can give you what you need
If you show me what it takes
And then youll love me
Love me like I love you

Raging rivers in the month of May
A sunrise on a glorious day One day your love will come to me
Echoes through eternity
Time stands still

 It Can't Get Any Better Lyrics 1

I Would Not Survive

You were my first love
And Ill never let you go
When you hold my hand
Everything is clear

You never seem to care
When all I do is talk and talk You say you like the sound of my heart makes
With the ticking clock

Can you see me living without you
I can see me
I would not survive
I would not survive
Without you in my life
Yeah

Every time we touch I nearly lose control
Thats the way you make me feel
I thought Id let you know

Can you see me living without you
I can see me
I would not survive

 

 

The Devils Cradle

All my thrills they turned into heartbreak
A good day took a long look at a rough night
In between the passage of time and 12 oclock  trains
Dusty travel bag in hand its gonna be a long ride

You know the world spins crazy
And Im not happy about it
Spending all our wasted time
My minds in idle
The devils cradle rocks you to sleep
The devils cradle can rock you for keep

Theres shadows they stretch on down the highway
Theyre meaningless
In a strange way
Some bridges I build some I burn
Mistakes I have made lessons learned

Dont you know the world spins crazy
Im not happy about it
Its amazing how I waste my time
My mind is in idle
The devils cradle it rocks you to sleep
The devils cradle will rock you for keep

I know my name has been called
Sometimes I stumble and fall
Then I get up

You know the world spins crazy
Im not happy about it
Its amazing how I waste my time
My minds in idle
The devils cradle it rocks you to sleep
The devils cradle rocks you for keep

     

Heal Me

You speak the words that you think will warm my soul
But you dont know that like a fire they also burn
Why cant you see that youve ripped my heart in two
Its going to take a lot more than you thought it would to

Heal me
Heal my heart and touch my soul
Touch me
Touch my heart and heal my soul
Heal my soul again

I know you think that I will always be there
Just like a dog who licks your hand when you are through Well maybe before that would have been the case I dont know
So much has happened now I cant just let it go
No I cant just let it go

Heal me
Heal my heart and touch my soul
Touch me
Touch my heart and heal my soul
Touch my heart and heal my soul again

 

 

The Ballad Of St David

Father David was a good man
He always left a big tip for Simone down at the diner
He took his coffee black and his eggs over easy
Hed turn the other cheek and flash that switchblade smile
Then hed walk another mile

No one too messy to clean or loaded too heavy
When it comes time to move on he says my mission field is where my feet come to rest and Id say well then how come youre always on the move cause there aint nothing to prove

Simone has a sister her name is Rosalie
She was 37 that June
17 years praying in the shanties
Her knees were always dirty but her hands were always clean
Nothing like youve ever seen

Every day Rosalie stared out on a city filled with pain and ask the Lord what can I do to ease the suffering I see
and what I see I cannot measure
oh hold on to your treasure
Hold onto your treasure

You can never tell how much work its going to take till youre finished then you can count the cost
One day father David was praying for a sick boy who couldnt walk He heard the people scoff and said only the Lord knows why
then he looked up at the sky
Oh he looked up at the sky
Right there in front of all those people that boy got up and he began to run around
When father David took his collar off Simone came to see

The Spirits mighty move
The hand of flesh renewed
Come and see us through
Come and see us through

   

Lips So Sweet

Hold my hand well stroll through the midway
Take your shot then well ride the bumper cars
I feel your hip brush me through your sundress
I close my eyes and I thank the morning star
That we are who we are

Your lips are as sweet as hard candy on the 4th of July and Your eyes  they compete with the moon
Your Lips so sweet they taste like candy
And your eyes they compete with the moon

Dont look at me with that quirky smile
Thats the one you get when you tell me I love you
You always laugh when I tell that story you wont believe
But I tell you that its true
Just like my love for you

When you tell me that you need me it makes my life complete
But when you tell me that you want me it makes my knees go weak

Your lips are as sweet as hard candy on the 4th of July and Your eyes they compete with the moon
Your lips so sweet they taste like candy
Your eyes compete with the moon

 

It Cant Get Any Better
     Proverbs 2 14

Let me see your form
Let me hear your voice
For your voice is sweet and your form is lovely

Show me all of you
And show me something new
Something new and complete
You know it cant get any better
No you know It cant get any better
It cant get any better
No it cant dont you know
It cant get any better
Dont go please dont go
It cant get any better

It Can't Get Any Better Lyrics 2   

Down To The Hole

Youre killing us she said
I said No its just a figment of your imagination
It cant be what it seems
Dont you know its nothing more than a mild aggravation
Dont be fooled by all the red flags
Settle down and relax
things cant be that bad

Do you believe me Do you know
How can you believe me when I go down to the hole

Im giving up she said
No you cant cant you see that will only complicate things
I need you by my side
if youre gone then Ill know just exactly what true grief means
You must hold onto what you dont see
In a day or a week Im sure that youll agree

Do you believe me Do you know
How can you believe me when I go down to the hole
Down to the hole

   

The Ghost Insecure
lyrics derived from The Young Lions by Irwin Shaw

He closed his eyes in exhaustion
If only hed talked in simple language.
You would be moved affected after all
Obsessed with the thought a single man the loneliest man
Feeling the ghost insecure
And beating in his throat
That to him mourning all the world a tragic thing and while it was true feeling the ghost insecure
And beating in his throat
Feeling the ghost insecure
Beating in his throat
The ghost insecure
Fleeting morning people touching

While it was true that to him
It was true that with him
It was true that through him
We were moved by him
All we could think of as we stood there looking at the grey face
Feeling the ghost insecure
The ghost insecure

 

 

One By One

Buried in stone up to my chest
All of them labeled sorted and counted
I grip them one by one
And I cast them at the shadows
I clutch them one by one
And they land with a thud

A face from the past it visits my head
Whispers of romance long faded away
My tears fall one by one
In the silence of my regret
My fears grow one by one
In the hole in my heart

A lifetime alone is looming ahead
Seeking forgiveness Not throwing away
the good gifts one by one
As they reveal You to my aching soul
You heal us one by one
And then we go on our way
Can we take some time to pray
