If some of you do not know of me from The Garden of Gethsemane. I am the Christian which is always posting songs about my struggle to found Christ in my life. And this song is just another one about that same thing.


Wearing Me Down

V1:

Time and time again Iíve tried
I have poured out my heart for You
And I have needed saving for so long
Iím struggling in my searching for You
And without you Iím just lost
No time will be wasted on anything,
Anything less than You
I need you as my anchor
Let me be thirsting more and more
Need you now, always have

Chorus:

Wearing me down, is this pain inside
Like a needle in my side
This just wonít go away
My bodies breaking down
I have never needed You more,
Than how much I need You now
Come down to me, donít ever leave me here
So draw the needle from my side
Heal my wound, just numb me
I donít want to feel no more

V2:

A little more faith
Just a little more understanding
And all Iíve ever wanted, all Iíve ever needed, is to know You
Iíd do anything for that chance
Just help me to see you
Just help me to know you

Chorus:

Wearing me down, is this pain inside
Like a needle in my side
This just wonít go away
My bodies breaking down
I have never needed You more,
Than how much I need You now
Come down to me, donít ever leave me here
So draw the needle from my side
Heal my wound, just numb me
I donít want to feel no more

Bridge:

I am so thirsty for You
This emptiness remains vacant
And my wounds never heal
Unless I find You
Unless I ever trust in you
My suffering will never cease
So I am calling to you, I want for you to take me
Hold me close
Make me feel that I am healed

Chorus:

Wearing me down, is this pain inside
Like a needle in my side
This just wonít go away
My bodies breaking down
I have never needed You more,
Than how much I need You now
Come down to me, donít ever leave me here
So draw the needle from my side
Heal my wound, just numb me
I donít want to feel no more

Inspired by the song Fingernails, I hope everyone enjoys it. Here soon I hope to get some of my bands music uploaded here at Music Buzz, if that would be possible anyways.


V1:

What is worth more than You?
I believe there is nothing else as great,
Anything at all that could make You shaken
And standing here I'm brought to my knees
Your face causes me to weep
I want to be trapped in Your embrace
Nothing else could calm this rage

Chorus:

Weak when I'm with You
Weak when I am touched by You
Trembling when I feel Your presence surrounding me
Without this thirst for You,
There would be nothing keeping me faithful
Without Your guiding beacon,
I'm lost inside myself and Iím screaming to be saved
I want to be trapped,
Locked up inside You
Iím weak without You

V2:

Incase of escape,
Just cripple me with Your grace, with Your strength
And in me
The emptiness fails to be filled
My impulses are feeding this rage,
And Youíre the only thing that could calm me
And crying, I'm screaming
Nothing but You could save me from this insanity

Chorus:

Weak when I'm with You
Weak when I am touched by You
Trembling when I feel Your presence surrounding me
Without this thirst for You,
There would be nothing keeping me faithful
Without Your guiding beacon,
I'm lost inside myself and Iím screaming to be saved
I want to be trapped,
Locked up inside You
Iím weak without You

Bridge:

You are the one real thing
You are my saving grace
Would You come down to me?
Take away this suffering
Would You wrap me up within Your arms?
And take me away

Chorus:

Weak when I'm with You
Weak when I am touched by You
Trembling when I feel Your presence surrounding me
Without this thirst for You,
There would be nothing keeping me faithful
Without Your guiding beacon,
I'm lost inside myself and Iím screaming to be saved
I want to be trapped,
Locked up inside You
Iím weak without You

Hi. I decided to share this song, not much else to say about it. ::)

Toxication


I am unclean, I am dirty/ You are great God, I'm unworthy/ This pit that's my life is so unclean/ And Your cleansing is all I need/ I need my soul to be purified by You/ You've cleaned so many, and I need cleaning too/ This toxic existence called sin/ It starts on my skin and seeps right on in

CHORUS: This sin in my life is powerful/ It fuels the anger and makes me cold/ I can't get rid of the evil dirtiness/ Please God, help with Your pureness/ I need Your purification/ To get rid of my toxication

And I can't stop the infection/ It pulls apart my every section/ You are the one who can heal me/ You are the one to forgive my bad deeds (CHORUS-repeat)

And it floods through my veins/ And it fuels the anger and pain/ You're more pure than anything/ God Your purity isn't just a thing/ Kill the evil that tries to grasp my life/ To sin Your Word is a knife/ Toxication tries to pull me from You/ I need to know what to do/ God I know You love me/ Through all darkness You can see/ I will get down bow my head and pray/ For Your cleansing each and every day (CHORUS-repeat2x)

I think this is a little aggresive, I don't like this one too much.


Wasting

V1:

It's killing me, this imperfection
My sense of self just keeps slipping in-between my fingers
I can't take hold of anything, I keep letting everything go
I'm blaming myself for my downgrading
Wish I could get back to You
But my brokenness holds me down

Chorus:

I need cleansing
I need salvation
Iím wasting away in self, every moment Iím sinking
Thereís this voice in my head
I hear it telling me I am nothing
All of me, I feel it reducing
I wonít let this keep me,
Your there, I just need to reach out
How can I be who I want to be?
Whose face is looking back at me?
Iíve got to find You
Iíve got to gather my broken pieces,
And put myself back together again

V2:

This is not my reality
I am not my own pity
Youíre my cure to this disease
And I donít seem to be listening
So Youíll be the one to save me
Or am I to waste away in loneliness

Chorus:

I need cleansing
I need salvation
Iím wasting away in self, every moment Iím sinking
Thereís this voice in my head
I hear it telling me I am nothing
All of me, I feel it reducing
I wonít let this keep me,
Your there, I just need to reach out
How can I be who I want to be?
Whose face is looking back at me?
Iíve got to find You
Iíve got to gather my broken pieces,
And put myself back together

Bridge:

Youíre never reaching me! (x3)

Chorus:

I need cleansing
I need salvation
Iím wasting away in self, every moment Iím sinking
Thereís this voice in my head
I hear it telling me I am nothing
All of me, I feel it reducing
I wonít let this keep me,
Your there, I just need to reach out
How can I be who I want to be?
Whose face is looking back at me?
Iíve got to find You
Iíve got to gather my broken pieces,
And put myself back together

yeah, that's what i thot when i read it as well.

as for the music, you could have something a litle slow for the verses (since they are so short, it won't affect the overall tempo too much), & speed it up for the chorus. just rock out. :) that's my 2 cents anyway.

Stained


V1:

My heart is for You
But I have blinded eyes
There are so many distractions,
And they scream at me
I am walking this road alone
I am standing separate from myself
Where are You when I need You?
But I just chose not to listen

Chorus:

These sins, have stained
Theyíve bruised, theyíve broke me
I am trying stand on my feet,
But I just keep getting knocked back down
My eyes, have filled over
And these tears, they are falling
Youíd be able to save me from it
But I am just so blind
I scream, I plead
And I beg of You, please
Just save me from this lie Iíve lived

V2:

I am on my knees
Iím praying to You
Iím praying to You
Cleans my troubled heart, my troubled mind
Set this misguided soul at ease with self
So then it could come to find You

Chorus:

These sins, have stained
Theyíve bruised, theyíve broke me
I am trying stand on my feet,
But I just keep getting knocked back down
My eyes, have filled over
And these tears, they are falling
Youíd be able to save me from it
But I am just so blind
I scream, I plead
And I beg of You, please
Just save me from this lie Iíve lived

Bridge:

My savior
I do call for You
My savior
I would live for You (x2)
My savior!
My savior!

Chorus:

These sins, have stained
Theyíve bruised, theyíve broke me
I am trying stand on my feet,
But I just keep getting knocked back down
My eyes, have filled over
And these tears, they are falling
Youíd be able to save me from it
But I am just so blind
I scream, I plead
And I beg of You, please
Just save me from this lie Iíve lived

Severed Skies


V1:

Severed skies
Iíd watch them all just drift away
And I wait for the light from above to envelope me,
Catch me when I would be falling
Itís so much better,
Not lost
Not misguided,
Found these answers to You
You are everything Iíve wanted

Chorus:

Iíll thirst forever,
Iíll never lose my faith in You
Keep holding onto You,
Never let You go
So divine You are
Keep me locked up in You forever

V2:

Severed skies
Iíd watch them all just drift away
The world would pass me by,
And there would be no pain
I see the fractures everywhere
Itís a world so blind
And I would never stray from You

Chorus:

Iíll thirst forever,
Iíll never lose my faith in You
Keep holding onto You,
Never let You go
So divine You are
Keep me locked up in You forever

Bridge:

My savior
My anchor
My beacon
Youíre everywhere I go
The on real thing
My savior
Iíd never fall away from You

Chorus:

Iíll thirst forever,
Iíll never lose my faith in You
Keep holding onto You,
Never let You go
So divine You are
Keep me locked up in You forever

How can you write these songs so fast?

savior_save_me
12-27-2003, 11:00 PM
I just do, and I don't take them from bands, or from people that write as I do. Everything I post here is MINE, it would be stupid to take something that someone else wrote and call it you're own, lol. A tip to writing things as quickly as I do, is knowing what you want to express, and having a clear mind. Song writing can be a long process, I know. But some people can just sit down and write something in a matter of fifteen, or less minutes. Writing to me came naturally; I never have had much trouble with writing anything. I have also taken many Creative Writing classes, and read a lot of books.

So, like I said. Everything I post here, or anywhere. Is MINE. I'll talk to you sometime later, Bob. And I hope to see you at Creation 04.

(All I Need) Can't Get Enough

V1:

It wasn't that long ago,
You came to me in my time of need
It was a sweet obsession,
I just couldn't get enough
Deeply in love with You
So deeply in love with You

Chorus:

I want more,
Just can't get enough
I need sweet surrender,
You're all I need
I thirst more and more,
I just can't get enough

V2:

I couldn't ask for anything more
Because there isn't anything greater than You
Like an addiction, that's what You are
And You are my guiding light
My heart is pouring nothing but love for You
(All I need) Can't get enough

Chorus:

I want more,
Just can't get enough
I need sweet surrender,
You're all I need
I thirst more and more,
I just can't get enough

Bridge:

I'm up to my neck in You,
Going to drown in this obsession
So beautifully addicted,
You are my one passion

Chorus:

I want more,
Just can't get enough
I need sweet surrender,
You're all I need
I thirst more and more,
I just can't get enough

(Second part of end Chorus with female vocals)

Oh...
You are beautiful, Lord, You are powerful
Oh...
Lord, I'm locked up in You
Oh...
I will never stray from You
Oh no, no...no
You're all that I need...

Thank you, Skilltroks! And this song is indeed going to be a slow one. I am thinking about making it about how Will You Be There was, you know. That slow, but beautiful melody.

I'll be using a piano, drums, bass and electric, and as well as some female vocals in the song. So I am aiming for it to be a real hit.
Music is my life, and I love it.

Eroding


V1:

Our faith is diminishing
Canít hold onto anything,
If anything at all
I though I saw Your face reflecting off the water
But itís just too polluted
Sin has contaminated all,
And seeing You would erase it all

Chorus:

Itís eroding my once clean mind
You completed me
Without You Iím just helpless
And this eroding
Itís the sin infecting it all
I need You
The worlds self defeating
Your children are in need of salvation

V2:

Thereís a hole in this heart
Seeing all of this senselessness
It just eats me away
And itís like a cancer
My tears,
They have tainted a picture
This picture is of You

Chorus:

Itís eroding my once clean mind
You completed me
Without You Iím just helpless
And this eroding
Itís the sin infecting it all
I need You
The worlds self defeating
Your children are in need of salvation

Bridge:

I am ready now
Come take me away

(Bridge x2)

Chorus:

Itís eroding my once clean mind
You completed me
Without You Iím just helpless
And this eroding
Itís the sin infecting it all
I need You
The worlds self defeating
Your children are in need of salvation

Hey well since Ethan's putting his songs up, i thought i'd put one of mine up. This one is called "Eruption".

verse 1:
how do i decipher
these, these feelings
i cant tell whether my heart loves you
or is wishing you were never breathing
how do i express
these, these feelings
i cant explain what my heart is longing to say
i cant even tell if the wound has finished healing

pre-chorus:
there must be a way all this can be eluded
as i cling to this crimson-stained cross
i lay my heart down...emotions included
you take away, you burn away the dross

Chorus:
these emotions take me on a roller coaster ride
they're not to be trusted all the time
i feel this love for you deep inside
an eruption of you, i see your light

verse 2:
i give it all up
the way i feel...the way i live
the agonizing pain of surrender
the sweet release of what you did
i am finally broken...shattered into pieces
you pick them up
but replace them in the way you see fit
a beautiful picture...your work of love
the candle in my dark tavern is now lit

bridge:
i'd slide,just slide away
but you, you'd still be there
i can always come to you
even when life feels so unfair

I wrote this song with the image of God's allpowerfullnes. Nothing can shake him, nothing can break him down. But then, we fear him. Everyone should fear God, bust trust him at the same time. Anywho, tell me what you think please.

Shake

You've seen it all/ You were before mans fall/ You destroyed the world with rain/ You can do anything/ And nothing shakes You/ Yeah, nothing shakes You/ Mighty men have shaken before You/ Kingdoms have crumbled before You/ And nothing shakes You

CHORUS: You're like a hurricane, an earthquake/ You're a tornado, You make me shake/ Speak my name and I quiver/ You speak my name and I shiver/ Yeah, I fear You/ But nothing shakes You

You've moved mountains, destroyed cities/ You've brought great kings to their knees/ You've punished the wicked, brought judgment to man/ You can do the impossible with Your hand/ And nothing shakes You (CHORUS)

Just as You shook Egypt/ You make me quake/ May the earth shake/ May Your name make the world quake

Nothing shakes You (CHORUS-repeat2x)

Here's a song that John's cool way of writing inspired me. His way of deep passion and raw expression (like Locked In A Cage" - break my bones....) inspired me. But I tried to keep this song origional, so hopefully it won't remind you of any other song. I know how annoying that can be. ::)


MISUNDERSTOOD

Verse 1:
Misconstrued every vow of silence,
Where's my voice in my talk?
Tell me what is pain?
What feeds it? What fans it?

Pre-Chorus:
Can't you see my best intentions, instead my hollow words?
Looks can be so decieving because it's a killing disease

Chorus:
Misunderstood,
They're too busy cutting at my skin
Misconception,
Locking away the secrets of the heart

Verse 2:
Let me love what I could hate
I want to need what I could kill
Why are you the one bleeding,
When I'm the one that's hurt?

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge:
I'm hungry in a way I'm not starving or dying
I'm lonely in a sense that I'm not alone, all alone
I'm awkward in a feeling that it seems so right
I'm living in a life that can't be undone

Chorus 2x

I tried to keep this song origional, so hopefully it won't remind you of any other song. I know how annoying that can be. ::)

you kept it original. i couldn't even catch a hit of SKillet (or anyone else for that matter) in there. :)

This was inspired by Dive Over In. I hope all of you like it.


Strings


V1:

Your the voice that breaks my silence
Your the calm before my storm
Inside my mind I have been misinformed
And under my skin this is eating me away

Pre Chorus:

Breaking me down,
Beating me down
I wish I could take this hate and turn it to love
So tired inside,
So weak, so I cry
Don't want to be blind,
I just want to realize

Chorus:

Your there
I feel You watching over me,
No strings connected to my body
Your there
And I want to dive into the light,
I want to be who I am wanting to be

V2:

Just paralyzed in my state of confusion
I cry into the dark, but I'm a voice without words
I am weak, and I am powerless
To try and retaliate
I just need You here

Pre Chorus:

Breaking me down,
Beating me down
I wish I could take this hate and turn it to love
So tired inside,
So weak, so I cry
Don't want to be blind,
I just want to realize

Chorus:

Your there
I feel You watching over me,
No strings connected to my body
Your there
And I want to dive into the light,
I want to be who I am wanting to be

Bridge:

Need You,
Seek You,
Thirst for You
And these strings
STRINGS
STRINGS
STRINGS
I am so broken!

Pre Chorus:

Breaking me down,
Beating me down
I wish I could take this hate and turn it to love
So tired inside,
So weak, so I cry
Don't want to be blind,
I just want to realize

Chorus:

Your there
I feel You watching over me,
No strings connected to my body
Your there
And I want to dive into the light,
I want to be who I am wanting to be

Thankx Unshakeable. Yeah, sometimes I'll be writing a song I accidently catch myself writing something that once was already wrote, ya know, things I've heard. So I just change it or start all over.

And if anybody can't figure it out, my song's about how people look at your clothes (skin) and judge you too fast. Know what I mean?
A couple of years ago, when Skillet's Alien Youth came out, I had a pic of them on my folder at school. And all my peers saw their clothes and just downed them. Thought they were devil worshippers and stuff. That made me so mad. But I just let it go. A few days ago, I let those few listen to Skillet's new album, and they LOVED IT!!! Made me feel so good inside.
So, that's what inspired me to actually get the idea of people judging too fast. But don't get me wrong, I find myself judging too, like if I see someone wearing something out of the rodinary, I put them in sterotype in my mind. :-[

ok ppl this is one of my best songs if you steal it ill hunt you down ;D[color=Blue][/color oh and the song is called SIN and its about the real pain sin causes .
(verse1)
spear in the head of the living dead,blindsides me, not really free. no need for rope ,no need for cage. my minds engaged with fabrication that enslaves. Miles away from the open grave steady a slave.Miles away<5x

(precourse) Abhore the pain ,abhore the chain,abhore the deed that binds from being freed 2x

(course) look what its done to you ,look what its done to me 3x

(verse2)
its a parasite that I'd invite, slowly eating away on the inside of me. the posion I drank down taste sweet but keeps me bound, blinded i cant see what the what the posion has done to me.drink the posion i vomited now to numb the pain it gives out.

(pre course)2x
(course)3x

(verse3)
flesh drops to the ground, spreads all around, same seed of sin starts growing again.The worlds an invalid sin coveres it .There is a cure one who is pure, medication for our nation. your not so helpless,become selfless....Look what hes done for you .look what hes done for me 2x
(pre course)
sorrow birings me into tomarrow, ........sarrow10x

lookwhat its done to you
look what hes done for you
look what its done to me
look what hes done for me.

V1: You are something I hold dear,
Lord I live for You now
Oh, to know You are here
To know that you care
You are beautiful in every way

Chorus: My tears fall from my eyes,
As my pain eats me away,
As this disease eats at me
I want this to be lifted from me,
You are the one thing,
Oh, the one thing
That could make it all go away

There is nothing that could tear it away, away
If there is ever anything I can't overcome
I know that You can help me carry on

Chorus: My tears fall from my eyes,
As my pain eats me away,
As this disease eats at me
I want this to be lifted from me,
You are the one thing,
Oh, the one thing

It's ever growing
A faith,
It's never ceasing
A faith,

ANYTHING AT ALL

Verse 1:
I've never saw such a beautiful light
Your love is raining down from heaven
I never understood Your mysterious ways,
But now I'm wanting, I'm striving to know more....

Chorus [2x]:
You're worth it all,
Anything at all
Nothing compares to Your glory

Verse 2:
You're the peaceful glow inside my love
I'm gonna let it shine for all to see
Search me, oh God, and know my heart
Try me, and know my thoughts, for I am Yours...

Chorus

Bridge:
You gave Your Son
You gave Your Life
Why should I gain from what is Yours?

Chorus


Copyright: Amelia Conway, November 2003

Explanation of my song:
I love to play this song. This is another worship song I wrote. God really is worth anything at all. He's the one who made it all! Sometimes (esp. around X-Mas) we can get so wrapped up in our own lives that we don't take the time to remember the One who made us, loves us, answers us, saves us, helps us, listens to us, or died for us. The first verse talking about seeing a light from heaven may sound a little bit unclear. What I meant for those two lines was a twofold. The first thing I meant was that I was recalling on hearing about the stry of Stephen in the bible, who had been stoned to death. But before he died, during his trial, he seen a light from heaven. And it sounded so beautiful and peacuful from how Stephen reacted when he saw it. He was about to die and yet was calmed and so forgiving when he saw the light beaming down at him. In the second part that I meant was that it's not exactly a visible light shining down. Or really, not a light at all. Just the feeling of God's love in the place where I'm at and how beautifully overwhelming it is!

Now, I'm not just saying this because Ethan reviewed my last song, but I really do like your song "What I Need". It actually kinda collides with the last song I posted, "Anything At All". I also have noticed we have similar styles in song writing. :) I really love the part where you wrote "If I ever stray from You, Donít let me stay so lost". That was really cool. Thought provoking and stuff. Keep up the great work!

It's so cool to see so many Christians writing for God! Woohoo!!! :D

HOMESICK


Verse 1:
In a field of golden flowers,
A little girl lays starin' at the clouds
Reminds her of her heavenly home,
When can she go there? When will she be allowed?

Pre-Chorus:
Tears fill the little girl's eyes,
As she kneels, do You really hear her cries?

Chorus:
She wants to go home where the sun is always shining bright,
She wants to go home where the stars are out in broad daylight
She wants to go home where pain and fear are never in sight,
She wants to go home where boys and girls never do fight

Verse 2:
Shaded from the sun by an oak tree,
Watching a blue bird learn to fly
The bird's fell, but watch as it flies away,
Neither will the little girl's faith ever die

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge:
She read You count all of her wanderings,
She read You put her tears in a bottle

Verse 3:
In a field of golden flowers,
A little girl lays staring at the clouds
Who knew that little girl could be so free?
And guess what? She's me


Copyright: Amelia Conway, June 2003

Song Explanation:
Homesick was a song written by my point of view of when I was younger. Everything seen from a child's view isn't all it's cracked up to be. Like in the verse where it says "In a field of golden flowers..." it's just really a field of dandelions. I'm trying to highlight that yes, kids exagerate what they feel or need, but it's so real for them. It's about a little girl who wants to be with her heavenly Father. When I was writing this song, tears actually came to my eyes 'cause this song was from the depths of my heart. A piece of me was in my music. In the part where it says, "She read You count all of her wanderings...", I actually read that in the Bible, it's a verse. "Thou tellest (<--means to count or take account) my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle. are they not in in thy book?" -Psalm 56:8. Even though it's a short verse, it spoke to me so much. Ever been through a time when it seemed like your heartache would never go away? The tears just kept pouring out. The suffering seemed endless. You're convinced you'll never be happy again. After a while you wonder if God even notices your broken heart. If He did, then surely He would do something--quick. God says He has stored each one of your tears in a bottle. God knows you intimately, and He has not turned His back on your suffering. Even when you feel completely alone, God has not abandoned you. He sees your tear-stained pillow. He hears you cry yourself to sleep. It breaks His heart to see you hurt. Do not be afraid. He is there--close enough to catch each one of your tears.

Yeah, this is the first song I ever wrote, and probably my best. I love playing this song because it reminds me how God loves little children so much and how free I felt when I was little. :D

-Blinks, utterly amazed at HOMESICK- Wow, Korey Cooper Jr. This is AMAZING, it's very good. This song really has a way of sucking you in, and making you want to read more. Great job!


Thought I Heard You There


V1:

I brush away the snow covered rock,
I sit down, I close my eyes, and I pray to You
I begin to cry
Your presence, it's overwhelming
And I am overflowing with love for You
I give my life to You
I want to continue growing spiritually

Chorus:

I thought I heard You there
The voice of the one that gave His life for us
I thought I heard You there
In my prayer to You, I heard You answer my call
I thought I heard You there
You're voice that makes me weep

V2:

I want to be locked up in You
Don't ever let me fall so far away
For You're light to be dimmed
I'd go blind
And if I was to lose my faith
Could You lead me back again?

Chorus:

I thought I heard You there
The voice of the one that gave His life for us
I thought I heard You there
In my prayer to You, I heard You answer my call
I thought I heard You there
You're voice that makes me weep

Bridge:

I'd never let You're voice die away
There'd never be a time I would turn my back
My life is lived for You
And my faith is all in You

Chorus:

I thought I heard You there
The voice of the one that gave His life for us
I thought I heard You there
In my prayer to You, I heard You answer my call
I thought I heard You there
You're voice that makes me weep


In dedication to Korey Cooper Jr:

Yes, that's right. I would like to take the time to dedicate this piece to Korey Cooper Jr., an inspiring song write and as well as an excellent one herself.
From what I have gathered, Korey Jr. You seemed to have struggled years back in you're longing for Christ in your life, I did the same... and I think I still do now.
Whether or not, Korey, you are still having some sort of struggle in you're seeking Christ in your life. I want you to keep working to grow spiritually, and stay faithful to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Man, this last song you posted Ethan, is my fav! I can soooo relate to this song. I love the part
"I brush away the snow covered rock,
I sit down, I close my eyes, and I pray to You
I begin to cry
Your presence, it's overwhelming
And I am overflowing with love for You
I give my life to You
I want to continue growing spiritually"

That I can really relate to, 'cause I've done it a few times. I love the WHOLE song though. I mean, it actually speaks to my heart... it's hits that soft part, ya know?

"You're voice that makes me weep" -I also love this part too. It's soooo true. I sometimes will sit around a day dream about what it''ll be like when I finally get to Heaven. I image me busting through the gates of Heaven and running and jumping into Jesus' arms and He spins me around. Man, how happy I'll be on that glorious day!!!!

AWESOME song, Ethan. What ever you did to write this, don't let it go. It's awesome.

lost and confused
looking for the answers
without you

This is a song I wrote a couple of nights ago on a piece of paper with a pencil. Then I did a few modifications on the computer, and here it is.

Cutting Loose

I'm so broken down/So helpless/ Continue to drown/ Or turn and confess/ Strength is what You've given me/ Something I've never had/ You are always there for me/ A friend I've always had

PreCHORUS: You are there/ Watching over me/ You are there/ Always there for me

CHORUS: Lift me up/ Let me see/ Lift me up/ Watching over me/ Break these binds/ I'm breaking loose/ So I may find/ I've always got You (Repeat all)

(Second time only) Living each day in darkness/ Will it ever end/ Light shines through when I confess/ To You, Father and friend/ You set me free/ But I want to stay/ Cutting loose/ And I want to be your slave (PreCHORUS, CHORUS)

Stranded


V1:

I am looking around in this place
Nothing is visible, just dark and I'm afraid
My minds being tampered with
I have got to get out of this place
I have got to find a way out

Chorus:

I'm stranded here
Can't stop being afraid
I have lost my foothold
And slowly I am falling further away
Catch me in You're warm embrace
Lead me back and open my eyes


V2:

You're my only infatuation, now
Lord I can't explain what I am feeling
In this dark, lonely place
My faith strayed from my beliefs in You
I lost my way
And now You lead me back

Chorus:

I'm stranded here
My mind is racing, and no longer can I keep control
Losing my mind, falling behind
I have lost my foothold
And slowly I am falling further away
Catch me in You're warm embrace
Lead me back and open my eyes


Bridge:

You take my hand,
You walk with me
I am filled with fear, Lord
I just can't help but be overwhelmed by You
You've left me dumbfounded
Lord, You're ways keep me faithful
I am thirsting more than before

Chorus:

I'm stranded here
Can't stop being afraid
I have lost my foothold
And slowly I am falling further away
Catch me in You're warm embrace
Lead me back and open my eyes

Alien

Conformity is boring.
Why does everyone try
To be the same?
I just want to be different,
Be set apart for God.
I want to let God transform
And mold me
From the inside out.

Chorus:
I want to be alienated from the world,
And follow Godís higher purpose
For my life.
Conformity to Godís standards,
Not the worldís,
Is what rules my life.
Iím an alien.
I shout out Godís name for the world,
And I donít care if they think Iím a fool.
Iím an alien.

Being different is followed by ridicule,
People think itís just not cool.
Donít you want the clothes,
The sex, the drugs,
To fill your emptiness?
How do you find this joy in your life?
How do you not want the things of this
World,
To fill your void inside?
All I can tell them is my void is no more,
I have the joy of Jesus Christ.

They tell me they canít stand me
Shouting Godís name for them
To see,
Who He is, and what He wants
Them to do and be.
Not God again,
They say.
They know He is knocking
At their heartsí doors.
They want to push Him
Away,
But I know that He is the
Only one who can give
Them something better,
Something more.

Bridge:
Looking at my alien ways,
They are scared of something
More.
We all need to tell them to
Open their hearts to the Lord.
They are caught in the darkness,
We have to bring them Godís light.
This is a constant battle,
A constant fight.

So if you see any way to make it better, don't hesitate to say so. Constructive critism is welcome here. Thankx.



To Confide In You

Verse 1:
Found a place of solitude to confide in You
Casting everything takes a life time and that's what I'm gonna do

Pre-Chorus:
'Cause when I bust through those pearly gates
I'm gonna run and say right to Your face...

Chorus [2x]:
You're everything I ever wanted
You're everything I need

Verse 2:
Understanding You is like counting each star in the sky
Does it sound so bad when I say I don't mind if I die?

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Found a place of solitude to confide in You
Found a place of solitude to confide in You

Again, Korey Jr. This is a great song you've written, I love it.


This Body


V1:

How can they see clearly?
When everything that is surrounding them just blinds
And how can they act like nothing is wrong?
When everything is falling down around them
And how can they turn, and face away
When there really is no place untouched by what's been lived

Chorus:

And this body, it's so tired
Of all this inane acts of man
This body, it just wants to be swept away by You
And this body wants to be lifted up high,
Wants to be saved by You

V2:

Our God did not die for no reason at all
This blood that was shed,
Is His cleansing of our sins
But we do not always remember this
Sometimes we forget, we stray
The repentance not being done...
We're the ones at fault for us falling so far away

Chorus:

And this body, it's so tired
Of all this inane acts of man
This body, it just wants to be swept away by You
And this body wants to be lifted up high,
Wants to be saved by You

Bridge:

This world is blind,
Won't You open its eyes?
And this world is blind,
Won't you open its eyes?

Chorus:

And this body, it's so tired
Of all this inane acts of man
This body, it just wants to be swept away by You
And this body wants to be lifted up high,
Wants to be saved by You


Song Meaning:

Take a look around you, take the time to really observe everything and take it in. Realize that we're living in a society that forgets a lot of things. There are so much deprived people that are not as fortunate as others may be. There is so much greed in this world, so much selfishness. And Jesus Christ, He did not create us to forget Him. To forget that we are his children, and that we were created to tell of his word. He wanted for us to grow as a people who upheld who He was, and understood that he died for us. He did not want for us to toss Him to the side like something to be forgotten and thought of as something in history that came, and then gone. Jesus Christ is still here, He's everywhere...

(Hopes he mad sense in what he was trying to say...)

Come Into His Presence

Psalm 95:6
ďCome let us worship and bow
down; let us kneel before the
Lord our maker.Ē

Praise Him for His mercy,
praise Him for His love.
Praise Him for His grace,
a chance to see His face.

Chorus:
Come into His presence,
fall to your knees.
Pour out your soul,
cry ďYou are holy.Ē
Lift your eyes to
His majesty.
He will move
your heart,
with His
glory.

A chance to praise Him,
makes my heart
cry out,
and me fall to
my knees.
I lift my hands,
to touch His face.
I am so in need,
of His grace.

As I come close to Your heart,
reveal Yourself to me.
Help me remember:
ďYou shall be holy,
for I am holy.Ē
I praise You,
in all Your glory.

Bridge:
I tremble before
You.
I can hardly speak.
I always want to
praise You,
but sometimes,
all I can do,
is fall to my knees.

These shadows seem to have enveloped me, there seems to be no way out of this doubt. the light that once burned so bright is now faded out of sight.

chorus:

"Feel the fear dissipate, when You are everything You are, feel my soul come awake, You carry me away"

That is pretty much the theme of this song; opening you're hurt to God, and letting him take all of you're worries away so that you can have him in your life.
It took my two days to get this song right; it was a very difficult song for me to write. Back when I first started looking to have Christ in my life, I was a very confused and lost person. I was... just so depressed all of the time. But when that day finally came when Christ answered my prayer, my life changed forever...


All Of Me~

Verse1:

I'm down here crawling in this mud,
On my knees and begging, pleading
Just would You mitigate this pain?
I have a needle in my side
And itís slowly wasting me away
Come down to me,
You carry me away

Chorus:

And I give all of me,
Just to live by Youíre light
And I give all of me,
To be saved by You--yea(x2)
And I give You all of me

Verse2:

And itís because of this disease that gives this lack of shelter
I am left in this cold, and I weep for salvation
I look to the sky, I cry out You're name
Lord... come and take,
Just take me away

Chorus:

And I give all of me,
Just to live by Youíre light
And I give all of me,
To be saved by You--yea(x2)
And I give You all of me

Bridge:

If there's one thing I know,
Is that You would never leave me alone
I praise You're name, Lord
I praise You're name

Chorus:

And I give all of me,
Just to live by Youíre light
And I give all of me,
To be saved by You--yea(x2)
And I give You all of me

So Much More Than Worthless

Verse1:

I've been this way for far too long
Got lost and I could never find my way back to You again
I once new life much more than now
But this time through I've felt so...

Chorus:

So much more than worthless
Could I find You again?
Felt so much more than worthless, this time
Whenever I couldn't reach You now
To be saved again,
Would mean everything to know You again

Verse2:

Here comes the pain again,
Never relents, always attempts to draw me in again
But I can't afford to lose everything again,
When You're just so close,
But I've...

Chorus:

Felt so much more than worthless
Could I find You again?
I've felt so much more than worthless, this time
Whenever I couldn't reach You now
To be saved again,
Would mean everything to know You again

Bridge:

I'm not worthless, I know!
But this pain, my sense of worthlessness just tears at me some more
And You're my answer, the one thing to rid me of this disease
I just can't help but feel...

Chorus:

So much more than worthless
Could I find You again?
I've felt so much more than worthless, this time
Whenever I couldn't reach You now
To be saved again,
Would mean everything to know You again


Song Meaning:

You're feeling worthless, not perfect, you want to find some answers but you fear nobody will listen to you. God will listen, he always listens. Everyone feels worthless at certain points in their lives; it's a natural thing to feel. And God is the simple answer to resolving you're problem, you are not worthless. Nobody ever is. Never fear turning to God, he is always there for everyone.

Jesus Freak

Chorus:

Cause I'm a Jesus freak--yea!
Cause I'm a Jesus freak--yea!
(first Chorus x2 everytime sung)

Chorus:

You tame the pain that's eating me away,
Taking my suffering and numbing it from me
I was once a broken soul, so lost and waiting for my Savior
And when you finally came
I knew I had been delivered

Chorus:

I can't describe the feeling that I get when I'm around You
So divine, You're so beautiful
Intangible with You're ways
Gonna stay faithful!
(back to first Chorus)

Verse1:

You're my shelter from the storm
You're my anti-drug to the Devil
He temps me with His ways
But Lord, He well not get to me
(back to first Chorus)

Verse2:

When I'm feeling cold and dry
I turn to the Word
I'm filled with overwhelming joy
Because Lord...
(back to first Chorus)

Bridge:

The Lord is my strength--yea!
The Lord, he is powerful--yea!
So when I can't find my way
I turn back to the scriptures!
(back to first Chorus)

I Need You


Verse1:

I am sinking back inside myself
Blackness is closing in around me,
And I reach in vain for something to pull me out
I am left stranded here
Cold and confused, numb from this disease
I'm drowning, I'm sinking down
I'm falling, I'm going to drown

Chorus:

Breaking these walls down that are holding me in
I'm going to break away from these chains holding me down
I want to rest inside of you; I want to be confided within You
So I take a hold of You're hand,
You pull me out from this wreckage

Verse2:

If I don't ever see You're light again
I fear that I would go insane
The thought of losing You forever, it makes me break down and weep
Because You're all I've ever needed,
You're all I've ever wanted
And I don't want to be lost anymore

Chorus:

Breaking these walls down that are holding me in
I'm going to break away from these chains holding me down
I want to rest inside of You; I want to be confided within You
So I take a hold of You're hand,
You pull me out from this wreckage

Bridge:

I need You more than I ever have before
I'm being pulled under,
And the light is growing dim
Take my hand now and lead me to You...
AGAIN!

Chorus:

Breaking these walls down that are holding me in
I'm going to break away from these chains holding me down
I want to rest inside of You; I want to be confided within You
So I take a hold of You're hand,
You pull me out from this wreckage

kill me here
v1:
Lord, have i failed you again?
ive tried to do your will,
but i stumbled and fell
how can you love me
when i fail like this?

chorus:
lord take my life
just make it yours
its no longer mine
just lock it in your doors

v2:
i pour out myself
lay at your feet
kill me here
right where i lay

chorus 2x

bridge:
i poured out myself
you filled me again
your love is more
than could ever take

chorus

kill me here!


Once Again

this song is greatly inspired by picking up the pieces by seventh day slumber. they are awesome, check em out

v1:
i look at my life
where has it gone
ive strayed far from you
whered i go wrong?

chorus:
i lay in shatters
on the ground
my mistakes pull me
so far down
then i saw your face
right before i drowned
and now im picking up the pieces once again

v2:
opened my eyes
for the first time
i lay in ruins
on the ground
can i pick up from the start?

chorus

bridge:
was i really worth the price
for your son upon the cross?
my imperfections are so thick
i wonder how i saw your face

You have a smile on your face,
but He sees your tears inside.
The drugs make you appear
to be in one piece,
but He sees your brokenness inside.
You may be like a bottle
that never opens,
but He holds,
the story of your life.
You may cover up the scars,
but He sees the wounds,
inside your heart.

Chorus:
Take off the mask,
reveal your scars.
We all have our struggles and pains,
many hidden by masquerades.
God wants to take your scars
away on eagleís wings.
He wants to pour His living water,
upon your soul.
Let Him fill you up,
and make you whole.

He sees your loneliness,
He listens to every
cry of your heart,
even when you donít
let its melancholy tunes
pierce your heartís walls.

Bridge:
His eyes see your pain.
His hands took the
nails that heal.
His heart bears your
Hurts and scars.
His feet and arms are made
to carry you,
from your seas of pain.

Letís say you live,
in an inner city place.
You see drug addicts,
prostitutes,
and convicts,
But do you ever think of them,
with Godís grace?

Letís say you are reading the news,
or watching T.V.,
and you hear about,
those massacre shootings,
but do you ever think of those
killers,
needing to be set free?

Chorus:
God loves them,
as much as He loves us.
to Him,
all sins are the same.
They may seem like really bad people,
but before we were saved,
and did the bad stuff,
God looked at us
and still does,
just the same.
He yearns for them to know of His love,
and to stop playing the games,
this world plays.
With Godís love in our hearts,
we have to lift them up in prayer,
because unless they know God,
they will stay in a sinful rut,
and not move from there.

Let say youíre looking at photo snaps,
of Christina or Eminem,
in a music video.
To you,
they might as well be porno stars or gangstas,
but God looks at their hearts,
and the darkness in them,
and He cries,
with pity upon them.
He knows they cannot be lights in this world,
unless they are dead to sin,
and have His Spirit within them.

Bridge:
Stop the back-bitiní,
Stop the one-sidiní.
In Godís eyes,
we are all the same.
We are sinners,
with different faces
and names.
Just because they are porn stars,
or rap stars,
prostitutes,
or drug sellers,
we arenít any better than them.
They need the Holy Spirit within them.

Please tell me what you think.

Worldwide Battle

C'mon, get up, it's time/ Pick up your Sword/ Time to put your life on the line/ Time to fight for the world/ We have to get up/ We gotta, got to, we gotta fight/ Worldwide Jesus invasion/ It's the dark verses the light

CHORUS: The war has long begun/ Your Bible is your sword/ Your faith is your armor/ The battle field is the world (repeat)/ Worldwide battle

Pickck up your cross, one step at a time/ We've been building a defense/ Go to the battle, be brave/ We gotta be an army of offense/ Be strong and courageous/ Don't be afraid/ God is with you/ Don't be dismayed

BRIDGE: Though we know it's no good/ We just try to hide/ We gotta stand up/ Find the courage deep inside (CHORUS)

Be strong, be brave, do not fear/ Your foe is sin/ God is here/ Find the courage within/ Go, go, go! / Worldwide battle (BRIDGE-CHORUS)

This was inspired by John, and I'd really like for it to turn out great. It's structured around really one word, Ministry. I really do not know how much of the world today is souly dedicated to telling of God and saving people by His Word. But I do know that there isn't that big of a percentage of people.

So really read this song and take it in.


Coming to Know You

Verse1:

I see the faces, they're all so desolate
But full of grief and wearing them down
They don't look to You to lift their problems away
Just if they gave You the chance(x2)
Salvation would come to them all

Chorus:

Coming to know You, they're coming to know You
Finally going to believe
They're unfaithfulness taken away, replaced with ever growing love for You
Accepting You,
Knowing You,
Coming to know You

Verse2:

Lead them one by one to see You
You give them faith, You give them reason
Spreading You're Word now
They're telling the story

Chorus:

Coming to know You, they're coming to know You
Finally going to believe
They're unfaithfulness taken away, replaced with ever growing love for You
Accepting You,
Knowing You,
Coming to know You

Bridge:

You're children; they're looking to have You in their lives
Want to live for You; they want to live for only You


Chorus:

Coming to know You, they're coming to know You
Finally going to believe
They're unfaithfulness taken away, replaced with ever growing love for You
Accepting You,
Knowing You,

It is only a small part,
of my calling to take a stand.
How can I stand out for You,
more Lord?
I lay my will at Your feet,
and You promise a higher reward.

Chorus:
How can I emanate Your glory?
How can my life tell Your story?
I want to shine for You,
not only as a Light,
but transparent,
with humility,
and with a passionate longing for You.

I sacrifice my everything to You.
You pour Your living water,
and make me new.
You refresh my soul,
through hard times in life.
I simply remember,
Your pain and strife.

Bridge:
Take all of me.
I lay myself at Your feet.
May Your love shine through me,

a sacrifice to You.

broke and doubtful
How can I be of worth?

Softly spoken You say
"Take My hand,
I'll show your future"

Bridge:
Soaring high above the clouds, looking down below
Saw a distant vision of me singing these words:

Chorus:
When I'm close to You
It's easy for my heart to believe
When I'm further from myself
My mind's at ease

Verse 2:
Saw myself alone
on the bay
Threw a rose in the sea

"There's to my love
The One who has
kept me strong through life"

Alright, everyone. Here's what we came up with.
ENJOY!!!!!


Impure

1st verse:

Once I caught a glimpse of You, but I turned away
These scales upon my eyes are weighing down my being
I have been fading for a long time now, I'm my own shadow
I'm living, I'm sinking, I'm dying on the edge of Your fingertips

Chorus:

I claw at this disease inclosing around me, I'm so ashamed, so helpless in this state I am in
And I am crying out, but in vain
I'm impure, infected and without reason
Looking around, I'm alone
I'm blaming me for this, blaming me

2nd Verse:

I know there's much more to this than what's presented
But just to blind to see it, too lost to take notice
And my skin, acid is dripping down on it
But I don't bother to wipe it away
This pain I already have, can't be doubled, canít be singled out
How long can I hold on?

Chorus

3rd:

With my hands so dirty and tainted, do You really forgive?
With nothing but scars to show, I'm on my hands and knees
A tatterdemalion set before my cruel prison, bonded by exception
A small voice whispers "Once You're in my hands, I'll never let you go"

Chorus

Bridge:

Iím stuck in this downward spiral, and everythingís closing in on me
Frantically clawing, searching for something to numb who I am
Stranded in my own mortality, I raise my hands in submission
Drenched in love and peace, I gasp for breath of the body of God
Overwhelmed in detachment, I can feel Your power pulse through my veins

Chorus

Well, what I meant by that line is this:
A tatterdemalion is like a scarecrow, someone who is inragged clothes, in bad shape, etc. And the person who is "telling" this story (the first person view), is saying that he/she's like a scarecrow, a puppet on strings played by the "perfect person" view.

What I mean by "bonded by exception" is basically the world has rejected him/her, and he'/she's doing everything they can to be accepted [once again] *<--- just how ever you wanna look at it: a sinner or a fallen Christian* by thier peers. It's one of those world sterotypes that "okay, girls are supposed to be reeeally skinny, guys are supposed to be tough and cuss..." kinda deal.

.....I actually wrote that line from my own perspective. 'Cause I was wrapped up in my anorexia a few months ago (but thank God for His power to help me out) 'cause I thought people (in general the world) would accept and like me better. So I was striving to become *something more.......something less, really*. So is this making any sense at all? So it's the world the person is trying to please, and he/she's caught up in themselves by doing this (unhappy about how they're living their life), He/she is blaming themself.

Hope that made a little sense. By the way, if you guys think I should delete that line, or have any other comments/questions/suggestions to voice out, don't hesitate. It'll only help us.

Thank you guys again. :)

Great job KoreyCjr and Ethan. Very amazaing how youwrote that song together from far away from each other, very good. My brother and I couldn't even comeup with a bass part for a song wepromised our Grandma we'd get done for the Christmas program at church.

these are just lyrics, i haven't come up w/ the music yet...
Fragile

I screamed NO! turned my gaze away
I will not give in, it will devour my brain
I possess the seal of the Lord Most High on my brow
I've been crowned, here I stand now gripping this rod
The staff of life, sweet liberation
I got the power to be free from this obsession
But now push comes to shove and I'm cracking
Cracking...Cracking...breaking
Like a glass under fire
Fragile..Fragile, I am fragile

I am fragile(no stronger than a piece of paper)
The scorching flames sear(i don't got the strength to make it)
i'm falling, falling, back to where I just got out
Back to square one, O Lord

I'm sorry, my God, i didn't make it
This reminds me again that I'm truly broken
I'm wretched, reeking with sin, I can't stand
But Jesus, my Jesus you have sent this demon to die
The battle is already over, and you were defeated
Defeated, defeated, get your filthy paws off me!
Jesus, Oh Jesus, do you have strength for this delicate soul?
Its you, only you, you got strength for this delicate soul


Fragile (but i got the Lord on my side)
Though the scorching flames sear(He gives me strength to make it)
I rise, I rise(through you I trample the serpant)
Lord, rise! Jesus show your power, rise!
No longer fragile

Well, np, unshakeable. I'm glad I made sense, and that you actually took the time (as well as the rest of your guys) to read and actually WANT to understand it. And really nice job, skilletchickforeva! Very cool. Keep up the great work. :)

Okay, here's my very first hard rock song I've wrote (keep in mind that my music style is christian contemporary). And yes, I did reword a line or two that I wrote from the song that Ethan and I wrote, but I was actually kinda saving those lines for this song anyways. But anywho, you don't have to read if ya don't want, just thought I'd post to see if it makes any sense to anyone:



MEANT TO BE


1st Verse:
All those fallen schemes, do You expound in dreams?
For everything I cannot be, what do You see in me?

Chorus:
Meant to be, they will unveil in their day
Meant to be, let them go their own way

2nd Verse:
Things meant instead are better left for dead
Remember those killing words? Infects the life of surge

Chorus

Bridge:
I'm living, I'm sinking, I'm dying on the edge of these fingertips
I'm falling, I'm stalking, I'm breaking this curse of my fatal lips

Chorus

Very nice, Amelia. I really like how you wrote this, I really do. I think it'd make a great Rock song. And maybe one day I could make a version of my own for you, one with music.

And maybe one day I could make a version of my own for you, one with music.


Actually, all the songs I write, I always compose them too. Usually when I write, I write my music with it during the process. So I accomplish the song as a whole. The one we wrote together is the only song I ever helped write that doesn;t have any music to it yet.

I know this is a song thread, but I suppose instead of making a new topic, I'll just post some of the poems I have wrote here:

BROKEN HEARTBEAT

Can't you hear my broken heartbeat?
It reigns silent agony over my soul.
I cry out from the ashes,
Which longs for deliverance.
Burned with shame and betrayal.
You held my heart in your hands,
And you watched it fall,
Shattering into an endless ocean of me.
Depression is so useless a word to portray how I feel.
So numb from the insecurities,
Feeling, breathing, thinking of nothing other than that day.
My body desires to be secluded from this atmosphere,
Polluted with the thought of you.
Swallowed by your deceiving words,
I am so empty.
Everything I thought was invincible is falling through so easily.
Your words haunt me, eat me away, destroy my sanity.
Echoing in my brain,
It finds my tears and opens the floodgate.
Rushing out, pouring out, puddles of pain reflect my sad reflection.
Wanting so desperately to be released of my own prison.
And you,
You poisoned my trust, my love, myself.
Stabbed with the blinding pain of friendship,
It courses through my veins, a constant reminder of coldness.
Leaving me to die,
You stand back and watch as if nothing happened.
Egressing a scar on my very marrow,
I still forgive you with all of my heart.


ENIGMA

Confusing yet profuse,
Havoc but incorruptible.
Wrapped up in chaos,
Explained though mispronounced.
A fine difference between alone and lonely,
Vague between desolation and desperation.
Placid in the deep,
Deranged in the wide.
A critical element of life,
Exert who you are.
Exposed to the open,
Confide in inconsistency.
I am understood,
That is not true.
Elaborate what is right,
Demolish what is left


INTO THE STORM

Leaves dance around me as it immenses,
A huge, dark, towering sky fills the world.
Violence whispers in my ear.
The wind fueled by rage,
Pushes and punches me to run away.
Lightning searchers, feels, consumes the ground.
Luminous,
Its shallow heart brightens the nation.
The bolt vanishes with a deep cry from dismal.
Thick, black, smoldering clouds rapidly approach,
Covering all that it can.
Suddenly a collision is painted,
Clashing of thunder, wind tearing through the beating rain.
Drops of liquid crash into my soul,
The pulse of the bombardment.
Then I look up into the heavens,
All is calm, smooth, graceful, flowing.
Cradled by its passion,
The eye holds the beauty.
Soft, gentle strokes tease my hair playfully.
Angered by the moment of the movement,
Power returns to its mercy.
Caught in a whirlwind of fury,
Energy swirls around me in wrath.
Thrashing, cutting, screaming,
It surges in and out of my life.
Bored of my dread,
It abandons me.
Departing me barren, torn, broken, and destroyed,
It leaves as easily as it came.


THE CROSS I BEAR

I break from my old self and step into You.
Yet I struggle with the vile fleshly lusts.
Old habits still penetrate the brink of my conscience.
How can I tame this unruly desire?
It rises war against my soul,
Which I have battled with for so long.
Over and over,
Again and again.
And every time You bleach my sins with the blood of the Lamb.
I'm tired of this repeated emptiness and have found no other substitute,
So I lay down all I have and pick up my daily cross.
I pray for You to give me strength to override these sinful urges.
You infiltrate my heart and execute every trace of my unfocused past.
Engulfing me in Your presence;
You cleanse my soul and set me on the narrow path.
Healing, delivering, saving,
You are even more faithful than knowing the world will spin.
Restored, reformed, remodeled,
Take everything and make me Yours.
Breathing You in transforms my rebellion into understanding.
Youre like a fire in my bones,
Burning, consuming, destroying all evil intentions.
You splinter me and reconstruct my thoughts.
My desolation ends with absolution in You,
I am less and You are more.

Skilletchickforeva, great, amazing, outstanding lyrics, sincerly

KCJ, great song. In my oppinion, the lyrics look more like an easy-going song instead of hard.

Also, those poems were amazing. I just wish I hadn't been eating something at the moment when I read that last one, because the food went down wrong, I was that amazed by the poem. Realy,really good work.

Thankx AlienSoul_squire20 for the review :) Sorry you choked on some food though.

Well, here is a poem I wrote today about a bestfriendship that cruely ended today, actually. It really broken my heart, but it was a mutual thing I suppose. *a tear would be appropriate here* :'(

GOODBYE, MY FRIEND
---------------------

Stirring the waters of this restless soul,
What do you think? What do you feel?
Pursing the intentions of the love,
Your only conquer is this beaten path.
Staring into that empty space ahead,
Can we ever go back to how we knew?
How can we be choking and drowning on our own tears?
You have to put this skin on and walk around for a moment,
See what it's like from my point of life for once.
Want to know how it feels to be betrayed and stung by you and everyone else?
And lend me your mask,
The one you hide and compose brokenness behind.
I want to see through your eyes of solitude.
Knowing you for this long,
Let me taste what this killing desire is you have in your vision.
Caught in this spiral down,
Falling so fast I can't catch my breath.
I can't even tell that you're falling right beside me.
We never saw this ambush coming,
Never thought we'd strive to see it through.
Give me your heart one last time,
I want to try to remember that dead beautiful glow that once was there for me.
Once the best,
Now the worst.
I'll do us a favor and get ahead of myself this one time.
Don't worry, it was all planned out.
It was meant to be this way.
Nothing could be sweeter than the bitter taste of freedom.
Let us once again walk back into the night of separation.
Goodbye, my friend

With every breath, my faith seems to grow. Knowing my place is high above the moutains below. Yerning for you is a trait i have owned. Knowing your there high above me and far below

Hope for heaven invades my brain as the things of this world drive me insane, but still I can't complain because your love for me remains the same.

Your love is as constant as time. I am reminded daily why I'm alive. knowing that you've given me every second of my life. For this i'm forever thankful, and may i give you praise as long as im alive

I'm sorry to hear about you're best friend Amelia, I really am. I've been through things like this many times, it hurts. And since we're writting poems, I'll drop one of my own by as well.


Whispering Blue

A sweet voice of an angel whispering into my ear
An autumn breeze bringing me to a wonderful dream
Iím falling gracefully into sweet retreat
The tranquility washing over me like the cool summers rain
I feel my spirit calming
My body warming
This ambient krylon blue that envelopes me gently
An endless understanding between whatís in me,
From whatís eating me away from my realityís dream
To wake is to die
To sleep is to dream
This alien feelingís so inviting,
Iím enthralled by it,
Put into a trance and dancing soundlessly
Between truth and myth
This false in-between
Here winter is never ending,
Yet warmÖ not cold
Snow is falling like diamonds
Shimmering with their sirens song
And here pain does not infect me,
I donít have to suffer like Iíve always suffered
The whispering blue,
Never wake me,
I fear Iíll die
To sleep is to dream forever
Forever is to feel no pain anymore

Actually, she didn't die, if that's what you were meaning. She had been having some arguments about crazy stuff that people would normally blow off. Then she just sent me an e-mail saying that our close friendship was over. :-

Oh...... I feel stupid...... :-[ I guess that "cruely ended" meant death. Once again, as many times in my life, I feel amazingly stupid. As to that, I hope that you and your friend work things out. But, I've lost two friends this school year, and I'm glad to be rid of friendship with them. They're continually herrasing me for my religion.

So, i'll hope you work things out.

Take me away

Falling away from you, I hear your spirit calling. The light that once burned so bright has now faded out of sight. Into the shadows I have fallen. Darkness now surrounds me I'm broken with fear, my spirit calls out to you and these words, my soul sear.

Take me away. That is all I can say, just take me away and let me see another day. This fear that envelopes me, just take me away into the light of your love and make it okay.

Thunder and lightniing from the storms I hear, amidst the darkness, the image of an angel appear. It's voice booming loud and clear said "Remember your faith my child, for I am here!"

It returns to me, the feeling of your grace. As I see you once again take my place.I have betrayed you in so many ways, yet you've loved me all my days.

My Imperfection seems to turn me away. I fear it will take me. So all I can do is pray and ask for you to...

Take me away. That is all I can say, just take me away and let me see another day.This fear that envelopes me, just take me away into the light of you love and make it okay.

Hi. I haven't posted a song in a while, so I'll post my newest one. I wrote it two days ago, and tried to post it yesterday, but my computer screwed up everytime i tired to, so I gave up for the night. I had the first verse down for a couple weeks before finishing the song, and I have to admit that I was actually feeling htat God didn't want me to finish it :(. But, inspiration hit at the most unexpected time: when I couldn't fall asleep ;D. So, now I know God wanted me to write this. So, here it is.


Flip the Switch

Crash, break, burning and crying out/ Fall down, faith without a doubt/ Spend my days following You/ Nothing at all I'd rather do/ And I want every breath to be for You/ And all I do to be for You

CHORUS: All I want to do/ Is follow You/ Flip the switch glorify Your name/ Flip the switch I can take the pain (repeat)

These stones they break me physically/ But they can't break me spiritually/ No matter what they do or say/ They can't turn my faith in You away/ They can never extinguish my light/ No matter what they can't win the fight (CHORUS)

Flip the switch I can take it/ Flip the switch I can take the pain (repeat 3x)

Put me to the test!/ See how long I can last/ Struggle through the pain/ Just to glorify Your name (CHORUS)

Words written by Jacob Fisher January 28, 2003

Explanation: It's pretty obvious, but, if you don't get the meaning, I'll explain. Pretty much, the song is about following God through the pain. No matter what pain you go through, you have to keep faith in God. The things that happen to us are tests of faith, losses, pain, etc.

more of a poem right now than a song but it'll most likely be made into a song sooner or later ;D

You hold it close through your actions
You?re perplexed
Distorted views
Never amaze me,
Trapped within
The pain
In your mind,
You are worthless,
Discarded
And alone,
No one cares
If you live
Or die.
You?re not their problem
Why should they care?
You delight in the pain of others
You suffer,
Why shouldn?t they?
You?re missing something
Searching for so long,
But you can?t find the missing piece
In your life
Can?t you see?
It?s not those you hurt that you hate
It?s who you see
When you look in the mirror

Right through Me

Verse:

Why, Lord am I stuck in this mud?
Or is this part of Your plan-- for me.
I need to know, am I comfortable here?
So Lord, I'm not gonna turn my back--no
I need You like a pill
My faith is all in You

Chorus:

Right through me, my pain is like knifes
And they cut right through me
Am I just a disease? Because Lord, I'm breaking me down
This isn't what I need, You are what I need
Not this filth I'm in
Rescue me

Verse2:

I've never felt this way before (worn so thin)
Feeling so alone, so far from You
See what it's doing to me-- I'm just so broken
I fail to see You now
I want to reach out for You're hand
Out of my reach, sinking too far underneath

Chorus:

Right through me, my pain is like knifes
And they cut right through me
Am I just a disease? Because Lord, I'm breaking me down
This isn't what I need, You are what I need
Not this filth I'm in
Rescue me

Bridge:

Sometimes itís too much
Sometimes Iím too much
I cry to Youórebounded by my selfishness
Consuming me, eating me away
Canít seem to find the right way

Chorus:

Right through me, my pain is like knifes
And they cut right through me
Am I just a disease? Because Lord, I'm breaking me down
This isn't what I need, You are what I need
Not this filth I'm in
Rescue me

All Tangled Up

Verse:

When I'm weak--yea!
When I'm unsure--yea!
I know I can always look to You
And Lord when I'm helpless, when I'm pinned down
I can have the reassurance that You're there to help back up onto my feet

Chorus:

And I'm all tangled up
In my obsession for You--oh!
Lord I'm all tangled up, all tangled up in You
I lift you up high; Yeah I praise Your name
And I'm all tangled up in You
Lord you capture me

Verse2:

I can't explain the way I feel right now
It's so overwhelming, but so inviting
I never want to let You go, never want to be far from You
I can't imagine life without You
I couldn't live without You--no!

Chorus:

And I'm all tangled up
In my obsession for You--oh!
Lord I'm all tangled up, all tangled up in You
I lift you up high; Yeah I praise Your name
And I'm all tangled up in You
Lord you capture me

Bridge:

Through all these struggles, You've stayed with me
Through all of this mess I was in, You were always by my side
Youíre what I've always needed
Youíre all I want to know

Chorus:

And I'm all tangled up
In my obsession for You--oh!
Lord I'm all tangled up, all tangled up in You
I lift you up high; Yeah I praise Your name
And I'm all tangled up in You
Lord you capture me

Your Glory

Verse:

The light floods my surroundings
I feel my soul come alive, I couldn't ignore You
Couldn't turn my back, because Your the one thing that keeps me living for the right reasons
Lord let me know you eternally

Chorus:

And let me see Your glory again so I donít forgetÖ
Let me feel Your touch deep inside me, never let me go
I want to anchor myself to You
You carry me, You hold on to me

Verse2:

I stand in awe as Your glory surrounds me
I feel Your presence and I am overwhelmed
Visions of angels run through my mind, I see it now oh so brightly
The saints before me worshiping You in perfect harmony
I fall to my knees, and the tears fall...

Chorus:

And let me see Your glory again so I donít forgetÖ
Let me feel Your touch deep inside me, never let me go
I want to anchor myself to You
You carry me, You hold on to me

Bridge:

And if I am ever shipwrecked, stranded someplace far from You
Iím going to reach out and take hold of my Saviors hands
Filled with Joy, Lord how I love You
Praise Your name--hallelujah

Chorus:

And let me see Your glory again so I donít forgetÖ
Let me feel Your touch deep inside me, never let me go
I want to anchor myself to You
You carry me, You hold on to me

I can't believe myself that I'm actually posting this song.. really its nothing.. I wrote in study hall 5th period.. it's kinda :P... Also, if you are going to comment on it I want your real thoughts on it.. I won't feel bad or any thing.. I really don't have a name for this song.. since its kinda.. yeah.

verse 1: cold oh so cold this world seems. will this ever go away? I've been waitin' an waiting.d What is wrong with me? No body knows! Maybe that is what I need.. maybe it's maybe it because.

~chrous 1~
So cold, my heart is.
somethin' is missin'
maybe oh maybe it's you, Jesus.
v2: I'll guess I'll try this faith Jesus thing
what's all about? I wanna know! Maybe oh maybe it will make my heart come alive... because right now....
~chrous 1~
so cold, my heart is
something is missin'
maybe oh maybe it's you, Jesus!
v3: How come I never relized this before? With the strength, with help I found in you! My life is never so cold... so cold... It's now alive
~chrous 2~
so warm oh so warm my heart is! maybe oh
maybe it's you.. working inside of me!
Cold no more
stone cold I am not
..
this has a story behind it... I was just looking back on my life when I wasn't a Christian.. It seems like everything would go wrong.. my parents yelling at me.. I almost commited sucide and gave up my life.. till about a year ago... I gave up my life to Christ.

I wrote this song a long time ago, and I like it. It's basically a re-make of one of my oldest songs that I don't do much with. But it's basically said all in the chorus what the meaning is. So, tell me an honest oppinion please.

Omnipresent

CHORUS: I'm never alone/ You're always there/ You're omnipresent/ You're always there (repeat)

You invade my privacy/ You are there when I sleep/ I'm never alone anywhere/ Because You're right there/ And You follow me, I follow You/ You're right there watching all that I do (CHORUS)

I can feel Your presence/ Sometimes I feel like You're absent/ But I know You're there/ You're always there, You're everywhere/ And You follow me, I follow You/ You're right there watching all that I do (CHORUS)

You're omnipresent/ Forever Omnipresent/ You're always going to be there (repeat 3x) (CHORUS)

Once Again
(2/26/03) By: Me #123

sit here pounding fist on dust dry earth
feeling it shake underneath me
lay here kicking the ground senseless
crying all the tears i can cry
screaming Your name at the top of my lungs
not feeling anything but Your love

come and save me
come and make me
once again
whole again

feeling Your glory come down
feeling my soul hit the ground
wondering if just maybe
i could live again in You
am i here all alone
are my words reaching deaf ears once more

come and free me
come and be with me
once again
i need You again

i can't stand the emptiness that
this world leaves imprinted on my heart
i can't stand the hate that
this world seems so full of
i can't stand life without You anymore
so come and pick me up

come and love me
come and show me
once again
Your love again

here's a song I wrote after/during one of my friendships was falling totally apart...

Falling Down

(verse 1)
I stand here crying over your leaving me
I feel like dying 'cause your not here by me
I miss all the good times that we used to have
I wish that you were here, still by my side.

(chorus)
I miss your bright smile looking right up at me
I don't know if I can make it without you here by me (2X)

(Verse 2)
Why'd you have to leave me?
Why'd you have to go?
Why'd you leave me here, cold and all alone?
These tears are falling down,
down onto the ground
and no one is around to keep me from falling down.
(chorus 2X)

(Bridge)
Please come back, let me rescue you.
Please come back, let me pull you through.
Hold my hand, I'll take you back to land.


so what do you guys think of it? and don't worry about hurting my feelings, cuz I really wanna know...thnx

bigpanhead, nice song, really its good.now for the next thing on my list....this ones called In you, it was inspired by Jcamp-Walk By Faith(well really it was inspired by all his songs but Walk By Faith is the one that comes to mind)

In You
v1:I can't seem to find the words to describe the way I feel.Thanking you for these wounds that you have healed.I hear your voice, and I feel your arms surrounding me.In you is where I've always wanted to be.

Chorus:In you all imperfection falls away,
and I see the glory I was created for.In you
my body is made new, and I shine.
In you my weakness is turned to strength.
In you I am complete

v2:I stand feeling broken, but somehow
I'm whole. The fire has consumed me,
but I'm not burned. You walk with me
through these flames. In you is where I've
always wanted to be.

Chorus:In you all imperfection falls away,
and I see the glory I was created for.In you
my body is made new, and I shine.
In you my weakness is turned to strength.
In you I am complete

Bridge: I feel your touch deep inside my longing
heart.I can taste your love, and I can hear angels
singing sweet praise. I see you glory, it surrounds me
like air. In you is where I've always wanted to be

Chorus:In you all imperfection falls away,
and I see the glory I was created for.In you
my body is made new, and I shine.
In you my weakness is turned to strength.
In you I am complete

I feel for you, I've written three today.

Me (On My Own)

Chorus:

I'm going to be consumed by my own decay
Save me before I'm eaten away
And me (on my own) turned my back on You
Cast me away, I'm so ashamed
I can't be loved by You
This layer of sin just continues to lead me away
Save me before I'm eaten away
There's no other, You could only pull me from this wreckage
Myself (on my own) can't keep this from eating me away

Verse1:

I'm growing cold from being so empty
Chipping away from being hardened from disease
I need something to fill the nothingness
And everything I am seems to just ware away, detach from my decaying soul
I can't live when I am so blind
Save me before I'm eaten away

Chorus:

Verse2:

I can't kill off the imperfection I feel
I'm crippled by this weakness slowly turning to fear
And I wonder if I was ever meant to know who You are, If I was ever meant to know You at all
I want to kill off this imperfection, take hold of something to anchor myself to
Save me before I'm eaten away

Bridge:

All that I want to be, all that I'm reaching to be
There's nothing to hold onto when these eyes won't open, if these hands are blind
And this is a cry for help; I want to be rescued from the pain that's killing me away
I need a reason to breath
Will You save me before I'm eaten away?

Chorus:

Higher


Verse 1:
I fall down on my knees
I want to give up
Haven't I fought long enough?
Drifting away from You
I cant hold for much longer
I'm reaching up, reaching up for You...

Chorus:
Take me, take me higher
I'm drowning in my own sin
You set my soul on fire
Take me, higher, where I've never been

Verse 2:
I struggle with my old ways
But You bleach my sins
With the blood of the Lamb
I've wrestled with this endlessly
There's no other substitute
You're stretching out, stretching out for me...

Chorus

Bridge:
I'm tired of dying inside
I want to be whole once again
Engulf me in Your presence
'Cause I'm stronger in You

[Guitar Riff]

Chorus 2x


Copyright: Amelia Conway, November 2003


Song Explanation:
This song has to do with a point in my life when my relationship between my God wasn't so strong. I just felt like I was drowing in my sin, with the things in life that are so tempting beyond my control. And I needed someone to pull me out, someone who is all powerful; my Savior! But now I realize that when I called for Him to rescue me, He was there right carrying me all along.

Broken Heartbeat


Verse 1:
I poured my heart out to you,
Only to be rejected
It was just a trap to break me,
And what a fine job you did
And I fall to the floor,
I can't hold back the tears anymore
You held my heart in your hands,
And you let it go to see it fall

Chorus:
Can't you hear my broken heartbeat?
You stand back and watch as if nothing ever happened
My heart has come undone just before you, just for you

Verse 2:
God won't let me go through
Anything I can't bear
And through my friends He is here
He will always care
And I've chose to forgive,
Though it'll be hard to go on and live
And I've learned a new lesson now,
I know it was worth it all

Chorus

[Repeat last phrase of 2nd verse, then do Chorus]


Copyright: Amelia Conway, July 2003

Song Explanation:
Well, from a past experience with a guy and a friend in the summer of '03, I just couldn't let go of feelings that were screaming to be let out 'cause it was basically killing me inside (He had cheated on me with my "best friend"!). So, I sat down and wrote a poem about it, called "Broken Heartbeat" (which can be viewed on the Poems page). In a writing class I was taking at Upward Bound *a school club to help you get ready for college* during that summer, I took in my poem and let my classmates review it and see if it was any good. They all liked the emotions used in it and one of my peers even suggested I make it into a song. So, about a month later, I sat down and started working on my poem to be formatted in a musical song. Within about a week or so, I worte to song version of "Broken Heartbeat". Chocked full of dismal emotions and events that had occured, it also explains my resolution with dealing with the situation. I learned to forgive and forget.

Amazing, utterly amazing. Korey you are a phenomenal writer.


I'll Thirst Forever

Verse:

(Starting verse is a soft singing, intro with piano)

You capture my fears, You calm my rage
I think You are beautiful, Lord Youíre beautiful
You cage me; You lock me up in You
You are powerful, Lord You are my strength
I lift Your name up high; I praise Your name with all of me
You move me with Your ways; You carry me away on the wings of an angel
I grow more faithful with each passing day; I have perfect faith in You

Chorus:

I'll thirst forever; I'll thirst for Your love
Lord I'll thirst forever, I praise Your name
(Chorus x2)

Verse2:

I'm so in love with You, can't keep myself away
I thirst for Your love; I thirst for Your touch
Your spirit carries me away, away from the hurt I keep inside of me
I can't do anything more, nothing more than weep
I am overwhelmed; I can't believe I went so long without You
Now that I have You, I could never let go...
I could never look away

Chorus:

Bridge:

Each and every tear that I cry is shed because I love You
Oh..., Lord how could I of been so blind to not notice You there
And once I finally listened, once I finally found You
All of my fears, all of my shame and pain were lifted from me
Lord how I praise Your nameóHallelujah

This is sort of on a personal note, but. I have a very, very close friend named Amanda that cuts herself on a daily bases. And I fear that one of these times, if she doesn't stop, she'll take it too far. No matter how much I try telling her that suicide isn't the way out, I just feel... I feel that my words go unheard. So Unheard is what I have decided to title this...


Unheard

Verse:

She keeps all the hurt bottled up inside, paints a new picture to hide her face behind
She is torn; broken and tampered with
A soul that is weeping inside but cover's its face behind the shame
And sheís lost, walking blindly in the wrong direction
Trying desperately to hold on because she doesn't want to be forgotten
Open her eyes, open her eyes so she can see You

Chorus:

Everything falls away like bricks, shatters as they hit the ground
Unheard, she feels unheard by You
Every plea-- broken by something holding her back
She's cold, the cut's at her wrists aren't helping-- just a temporary numbing
Afraid of losing her, take her in Your arms
Afraid of losing her, take her in Your arms

Verse2:

Sometimes she can't bare it all, she starts the process over again
I'm stricken, I'm weeping for her life
Would Your love mean more, save her from the suffering
She grows colder with every cut made
Times running out

Chorus:

Bridge:

The drops of blood are the tears that never cease to fall
They're the cries for help, the calling of Your name
Mend the broken heart that's aching
Capture the fears building deep inside
All she wants is something to hold on to

okay since I posted it there I have to post it here I wrote this song after reading about will/Ethan's friend...this goes out to Amanda, and anyone else who is struggling....

Always

V1: Deaf and blind, drowning inside. She fights
to break the surface, but only falls deeper.
She knows no way out, and lives in doubt.
she doesn't Him standing there, his hand
reaching now.

Chorus:He always was, always is there to save
you. All you have to do is reach out and
grab hold. he always was always is there
to guide you, just follow his lead.

V2: Down below all these things I know
is a girl lost in confusion. I used to
see it now I am blind to all these things
you have in mind.

Chorus

Bridge:I feel lost, oh so lost inside my head. So
come now and clean me out and make me
who I'm meant to be.

03-08-2004, 04:13 PM
I wrote this one a while ago just I haven't posted here in a while.

Broken Down Heart

v1:I see it now so clearly. You said you
believed but deep inside your heart wasn't right.
You saw his glory, but still you betrayed the Son
Of Man with a kiss!

Chorus:Now I know, and deep inside I have a broken
down heart.You see what you've done and now you
have a broken down heart. So now let him come and fix
your broken down heart. You'll see truth as it comes and
you'll no longer have a broken down heart.

v2:I still remember the day when you said you
were free. Then that next day you fell away from
that truth you seemed to see. Was it all just
a hoax, all the love you had shown? Or
have you just forgotten what truth is in the
eyes of the king?

(Chorus)

Bridge:We have all sinned don't you see. We have all
fallen short of his glory. But Jesus came and set us free.
So today we should all know the story.

(Chorus)

Song meaning: The verses in this song are both examples of people who have betrayed God. The first one, of course, being Judas. The second one could be any of us. The chorus is what i like to call the life of the song(it kinda shows God's grace, and how willing he was to forgive even the worst of sin)..

This is a deffinet remake of an old song of mine. Basically, it's about asking God for help when you need him, or are in trouble. so, here it is.

I Let You Shine

Living in darkness/ Living in doubt/ I'm surrounded by heartless/ And I can't get out/ Never knew I could get away/ Or break through/ Break through a day/ Unless I'm broken into You

CHORUS: When I can't see/ When I can't hear/ You protect me/ I know You're here/ You're always with me/ And I can call You mine/ When it's dark/ I let You Shine

Drowning in sin/ Cannot breathe/ When I fell in/ Knew I was decieved/ So I make a prayer/ For Your guidance/ For Your hand/ in the silence (CHORUS)

Shine Your light so I can see/ Make my path clear/ Shine Your light to those around me/ Let them hear (CHORUS)

This song's music is similar to Skillet's "Will You Be There". Softly spoken, but with a powerful meaning. Just finished writing this one tonight. It's my best and most intimate song, and I know God's in this one. Praise the Lord!

You Are With Me

Verse 1:
Where do I start again
After failing this much?
As I lay down my life
This time I'm not getting up

Pre-Chorus:
You're the wings that carry me
You're the strength that I believe
You are with me

Verse 2:
Watching over the sparrow
I feel Your hand guiding me
And every time that I fall
You raise me up to more than I would be

Chorus:
You're the wings that carry me
You're the strength that I believe
You're the wings that carry me
You're the strength that I believe

Bridge:
Hungry and needing
I'm searching for traces left
Craving and thirsty
What's missing deep inside?
'Cause when I'm alone
I forget that You are with me

Where do I start again?
Where do I start again?

Chorus

Ok, so. By reading Korey Jr's song I found great inspiration for what I have put together, and am about to reveal to all of you. When I was reading Korey Jr's song I just happened to be listening to Coming Down off of Skillet's Hey You, I Love Your Soul Album; so this created even more inspiration. I hope you enjoy what I've written.


Touch

Verse:

Searching all of me, wondering why I'm not complete
A single tear stains my skin
I wonder why I'm so empty, can't figure it out, I can't find an answer
Is it Your face I see in my reflection, are these Your nail scared hands stained with tears?
I need something that will complete me; I thirst for something to anchor to
A little more of me chips away, Lord I don't want to suffer no more

Chorus:

Pour it out, spill over me (Your love, Lord, Your love)
Touch me, heal me wholly
Capture me and I know You're not letting go
Touch me (just a touch)
And complete what was never there

Verse2:

Drink from the will, feel You pulse through my veins
Is this how it feels to know who You are?
I want more of You, none of me
'Cause when there's none of You
I'm just empty instead


Chorus:

Bridge:

Is it Your face I see in my reflection, are these Your nail scared hands stained with tears?
(Bridge x2)

Chorus:


I couldn't come up with anything to write for the bridge, so I used a section of the first verse as the bridge. I'm not too sure that it worked out very will, but. I think the song turned out great.

Here's a song that we'll be playing at The Garage for all of you that are coming!

~Dazed~

Verse1:

Scarred, bruised, broken
Everythingís not what you see now
Afraid, shaken up, alone
Somethingís got you feeling empty
Hypnotized, numb, still paralyzed
Feeling forsaken by a god lifted so high
Second chance's, failed attempts, dreams not claimed
You start to think it's not worth the pain, you find yourself slipping away

Chorus:

Left so dazed He's swept you away
(You've found you haven't forsaken)
And overwhelmed the tears will fall
(The love you feel keeps you wanting more)
Your left so dazed...
(He's swept you away)

Verse2:

Can't breathe, can't feel, can't see
Take that rope from around your neck, remove the blindfold
Confused, tampered with, sill troubled
Dip your hands into the healing water--you'd feel much better then
Feeling heartache, split open, it's a razor to the wrist
Thereís a voice calling to youÖ
"Put that down, child. Everything will be ok."

Chorus:

Bridge:

Take His hand, its ok
Hold on tight, you'll be safe with Him always near
Take His hand, its ok
Hold on tight, you'll be safe with Him always near

Chorus:

Fragments of a Broken Heart

Verse1:

And I want to wake upóno sleeping
Days come and go, they pass me by
Iím left paralyzed in time, coldónumb
And Iíve got no place to call home
All Iím asking for is something more, so tired of being alone
Thereís a vacancy in my heart crying to be filled, itís killing me
So Iíll cry out for the OneÖ
ÖJust take me

Oooh...Oooh...
Oooh...Oooh...

Chorus:

(Fear is consuming me)
Fragments of a broken heart
(Bittersweet, itís bittersweet)
Fragments of a broken heart
(Make me numb)
Fragments of a broken heart
(Crying to be whole again)
See my broken heartÖ

Verse2:

If I canít find what I grieve for
Iíd rather be dead
I have none to cry toÖ
And yet I find, repeating in my head
Thereís nothing left for me
Iím rakedÖ

Oooh...Oooh...
Oooh...Oooh...

Chorus:

Bridge:

I face this path of mine
I bare this in mind
This bitterness canít be forever
And I canít hide the urgency for the OneÖ
ÖIf I canít be whole
Then why do I keep wanting?

hey nice song Will....I'm having trouble with this one,but hey its okay...this is a poem i wrote for my friends at school who think that I'm a fool cause I tell them i love them everday...



It seems only meaningless words come from my lips when I
try to say I love you but it is true that I do. What can I say to
get this across? When will you here my cry? You say Iím
just a fool, and love is irrelevant from me. How can I love
you so much, when I mean so little to you? You are my
brother I do love you, but how can I mean so much to Him
and so little to you?

Iím no fool, I do love you. So just take this pain away.
Let me know your okay. Iím no fool I do mean to say.
When I say I love you please take it as true.

~Crippled~

Verse1:

The virus seeps through the fractured skin
Breaks down my being, tears away my brittle reality
I lay broken, my clothes torn
Sinking beneath remains of what I used to be
I'm so splintered, so weak
Can't stand I'm...

Chorus:

CRIPPLED!
(Beat down)
BROKEN!
(Worthless)
I'M CRYING OUT!
(Desperate)
SAVE ME!
(Don't forsake me)


As you can see this isn't a finished lyric, and that's because I'm currently stuck on how I should write the rest of it. So I'm asking you guys to give me some ideas on how I should finish it, and this isn't something I usually do. If any of you come up with something, post it here in the Lyric Thread (Songs Written by Us Panheads).

The virus seeps through the fractured skin
Breaks down my being, tears away my brittle reality
I lay broken, my clothes torn
Sinking beneath remains of what I used to be
I'm so splintered, so weak

Chorus:

CRIPPLED!
(Beat down)
BROKEN!
(Worthless)
I'M CRYING OUT!
(Desperate)
SAVE ME!
(Don't forsake me)

I feel so helpless deep inside.
Unable to move I feel so torn.
Father why am I this way?
Do you hear my heart cry out?...

P.S. Is that what you wanted?
