Sweet Destiny

Follow me, don't be slow
There's a place
we've got to go                                                                
And I need you there
I can't find it here
And I can't be alone


Sweet Destiny
Put your arms around me
Hold me close and
whisper my name
Then just let me be.


In my eyes you can see
What your love does to me
Turn me inside out
Make me scream
and shout
Can you please set me free?


Sweet Destiny
Put your arms around me
Hold me close and
whisper my name
Then just let me be.


(That’s some cool backwards guitar solo!!)


Read my words,
hear my song                                                            
Pack your bags
you don't belong
You're a little late
And I cannot wait
"Cause this feeling's
so strong          

        

Sweet Destiny
Put your arms around me
Hold me close and
whisper my name
Then just let me be.



Sweet Destiny
Put your arms around me
Hold me close and
whisper my name
Then just let me be.


Sweet Destiny
Put your arms around me
Hold me tight and
whisper my name

Sierra Leone

Evil sees no compassion
She's a thief in the night
Her family, friends
and rations
All lost in the fight.


They use the money
To wage a war
Who's right; who's wrong
Let's even the score.


When will love
stand on it's own
Peace has no home tonight


Another page from
the poem
When will we see the light.


I will not hold back
my prayers
Where there is life,
there's hope


I know that you're not alone
Sierra Leone.


The politicians  cried
My best friend's dead
The colors in her
stone have
All turned red.


Vested interests and your
Money makin' schemes
Why do you break
our hearts, then
Try to shatter
our dreams, well..  


Chorus


No freedom in Freetown
The bird has flown
The amputees live on
With shacks for homes.


They bomb our cities
And they rape our poor
What will it take to open
Freedom's Door?


Chorus

Bon Vivant

So you want
to settle down
But you're feeling
kind of strange
And there's no one
else around
Who can talk
about the change.


Can you live your life alone
Does your girlfriend
hold the key
Will she fill the void inside                                                                                                                                
And will your spirit
still be free  


  It's getting late              
And it's all be done          
My Bon Vivant, my Bon Vivant, my Bon Vivant.



Can you see beyond yourself
Will a greater sum be born
Do you put this on the shelf
And will your conscience
still be torn.

And you're getting kind of old
Or at least that's what they say                                                                                        
Though you feel like
you're a kid
As you live your life each day.

And the days just seem to fly
But there's nothing
guaranteed
As you look into my eyes
All the love you
say you need.


I can hear you laugh aloud
Will you ever feel complete
There's a ringing in your ear
And the voice is kind of sweet.


Chorus


And she tells you of a love  
That you've never had before  
There's an angel
come to town
And she's knocking
at your door


So you sit alone and wait
Till you can't take anymore
You can see it's
something great
But inside you can't be sure.  

                                                                                                                              

Chorus

I Gotta Believe

I got the news today
Can't shake the blues away
Trying to get it right
Can't get to sleep at night


That's when I heard a voice
You've got to make a choice
time is still moving fast
Only our love will last


I can't tell you now
I can't tell you why
I can't tell  you now



We  all need a friend
Someone to help us mend
Jesus please save my soul
You've got to make me whole


Help me to see your ways
Help me to live these days
I'm just a lonely man
Help me understand


Chorus


These  times I can't explain
Your love can ease the pain
Now I can see the light
But I still choose to fight


Please end this misery
And help these eyes to see
I'm just a weary soul
Take control


Chorus


I gotta believe

Freedom's Door

Can you tell me sir
How long it's been
Since you fought for my freedom
When you lost a limb?
Can you tell me sir
How long it's been?


Can you tell me ma'am,                                                                                                                                
How long it's been
Since  you raised your kids                        
Through the thick and thin            
Can you tell me ma'am          
How long it's been?

Can you tell me mister
How long it's been
Since you cast a vote
For the government
Can you tell me mister
How long it's been?

Can you tell me son
How long it's been
Since you trusted God
And your fellow man
Can you tell me son
How long it's been?


Is it wrong to stand up
and fight
For what you believe,
for what is right
To stand your ground
Without a sound
I've got to be free


Can you tell me sister
How long it's been
Since you ran the race
Cut the hectic pace
Can you tell me sister
How long it's been?


Can you tell me judge
How long it's been
Since we called it murder
Since we called it sin
Can you tell me judge
How long it's been?


Can you tell me love
How long it's been
Since the marriage lasted
When you were my friend
Can you tell me, love
How long it's been?


Can you tell me friend
How long it's been
Since you lived your life
Heard the voice within
Can you tell me, friend
How long it's been

The Six O'Clock News

We all stand in line                                                                                                                                                            
One behind another
To cleanse our souls
Be at peace
with each other    

Does media reflect
The world and it's views
Radio commercials
The six o'clock news


With folded hands
And far away eyes                                                                                                                          
You cannot hear a sound
Only internal cries

From behind the curtain                                                                                          
I can hear the voices cry
A woman exits
her spotlight
The crowd wonders why
It's not what
meets the eye    


Chorus


Where have all the
good people gone
Are we too lazy

The truth is out of focus
And our lives are
tainted and hazy       

           

When killing and chilling
is all the rage
And Hollywood opinion
takes center stage
We're not who we used to be
These are different
times you see
Choose or lose-kill a baby
Fight or flight-
Don't tread on me


We all know our rights  
are not free
I can still choose
who I want to be
Do you hear the smear,
fear, it's coming
Near hypocrisy
Don't let the kids see
that-it's filthy
Bias in the media?
The truth shall set you free

My father spoke
of times long ago        
The minor leagues filled with fans who used to go  
Who used to go  


Chorus


Time to return
one to one
to the Father
through the Son


Chorus


We need truth
We need love
