It's Time 03:44
It's time to break down the walls That let some in and keep others out It's time to see one human race And love our neighbor It's time to reach those who need us To give a helping hand It's time to practice what we preach To live the life he calls I stand at the door and I knock Are you ready can I come in For whoever receives one in my name Receives me I am the way, the only way You can move mountains in my name I stand at the door and I knock Are you ready, are you ready It's time It's time to take care of this world This precious gift It's time to stop Fighting among ourselves It's time to love the little ones To give them back what he gave to us It's time, wake up and see the signs Turn this world around I stand at the door and I knock Are you ready can I come in For whoever receives one in my name Receives me I am the way, the only way You can move mountains in my name I stand at the door and I knock Are you ready, are you ready It's time I stand at the door and I knock Are you ready can I come in For whoever receives one in my name Receives me I am the way, the only way You can move mountains in my name I stand at the door and I knock Are you ready, are you ready It's time

somewhere between dream and sleep in that place where darkness and light meet they sing a song to wake hope and peace come into my restless world somewhere in the storms of the past a voice calls out for the souls who have been cast out of hell out of evil’s grasp do not fear in this crazy world and i call out to you cause i wanna be with you three months and still those words ring true i will not back down it’s time to go and rid myself of the emperor’s clothes to see myself for who I am a child of god and a humbled man so many years to wear this face all-american boy read their minds but have no place to be yourself it’s just their dreams that you chase and live in your self-less world the journey’s all about how you feel hold a mirror so the prodigal’s heart is revealed says the voice what you see is real so come out of your image world and i see the one inside cause i fight my sense of pride that pushes me to run and hide i will not back down... somewhere in the life that I lead dark and light and hope and peace will meet among the weeds and among the wheat to live in this blessed world and i’ll see this journey through cause i’ll make it back to you to finally see what love can do i will not back down...

Prayer 05:25
if you needed me to take away your hurt and pain if you called on me to steady winds in times of change i'd run to you and hold you by the hand and if you still needed more i'd stay for awhile and i'd sing you this prayer and if i needed you to release the demons inside to help me keep my past in the days that have already gone by you'd come to me lead me to a quiet place smile a smile of love hold me in your arms and sing me this prayer tonight i face the moon the stars and sea the earth and sky tonight i face the world and i swear i will not pass it by and so here i stand and i absorb creation all around and though i stand alone i am here with you and we sing this prayer give me strength peace of mind help me find that love will come around love will always come around

Seven days When I listened to what you said You shared with me The gifts of your cup and your bread You touched me With your action of undying grace And I asked you to hold me In an eternal embrace Sweet song of love and praise And I had found happiness To last me for all my days You were the light that filled me inside You were the ship That led me away from the tide You told me to look for the angel inside Sailing winds On the waters that run to the shore Starry skies Where I found peace of mind once more You helped me to heal The scars that had formed on my heart And showed me just how To laugh and rejoice from the start You held out your hand I swear I never thought I could find this love again Could you be the light in which he abides Could you carry me on Help me break down the walls of pride Could you help me search for the angel inside Oh, what more can I do It's crazy how I look And I find this love in you You are the light I don't wanna hide You shine in my heart And help me break from the tide Through all the times When I thought I could not recognize It was you You helped me find The angel inside

Will not go away The river of life runs Inside your heart Throughout every day I still love you Will not go away The river of life runs Inside your heart Throughout every day I still love you Winter brings cold to North Carolina Young mother, young father Inside by the fire Rejoice in their baby In her arms he cradles Love like a circle goes round We hear him say Will not go away The river of life runs Inside your heart Throughout every day I still love you Young woman is crying Cause her love has left her The life they were leading It ceased with no giving She feels love has left her Won't be there to save her And love like a circle goes round We hear him say Will not go away The river of life runs Inside your heart Throughout every day I still love you I sit on the pier and gaze over the water The sun shines so brightly The glow it reminds me Every day is a blessing Each moment remembering That love like a circle goes round Love like a circle goes round We hear him say Will not go away The river of life runs Inside your heart Throughout every day I still love you

If I could see beyond the walls That limit my vision And keep me guessing Of the ways you touch my soul I'd gaze for a moment on your face And if I could stand on this mountaintop And look over creation To find a reason For the life that's brought me here Maybe your presence would fill up this place And I'd shout from the mountain So all of the world Could hear down below me I've fallen for you Hopelessly, helplessly Head over heels I've fallen Fallen for you And if I could comfort this restless moving That's built up inside me All my makings fall flat to the ground And I long for new bread and wine Still you love me And you hold me close to you And you whisper in your still small voice That everything's gonna be fine And I'd shout from the valley So all of the world Could hear up above me I've fallen for you Delight me, excite me You really surprise me And I've fallen, fallen, fallen For all the empty lies I used to feed myself For all the tears I've cried before Now you have come here To love me and guide me Be there to heal the heart Broken inside me Carry your cross there Your arms open wide for me And I'd shout with the angels So this broken world Could hear all around me I've fallen for you In a world that rejects me You hold and embrace me The wonder of grace I've fallen for you Hopelessly, helplessly Head over heels You lift me up high And I've fallen for you

The time has come, my child The evening is at play The sun has left us now To prepare for another day As I lay me down to sleep I pray to the Lord That he will always watch over me Count your blessings And close your tired eyes I’ll sing to you Sweet little angel Won’t you sleep, little angel Sweet little angel Sleep tonight And when you rest in slumber I pray you’ll dream awhile Of unicorns and sunsets Of God’s great creation Things that make you smile Joy and laughter in a song All the happiness in life Eternal peace that can’t go wrong And when your journey’s through Come home to my arms Sweet little angel Won’t you sleep, little angel Sweet little angel Sleep tonight And when you wake in the morning You’ll never be alone For the love that surrounds you here Is the love that we call home God guide you through your day And bring you back again Sweet little angel Won’t you sleep, little angel Sweet little angel Sleep tonight

I am a nameless man Invisible to your eyes You do not notice me You look my way While blind to who's inside I guard the life I live From your precious china world I’m too scared to let you in To bear my soul Then have you crush my world I’m the invisible man Catch me if you can My life is not like yours I’m damned for my great crime But my heart burns deep within And beats in tune With all of humankind Once clothed in living water And embraced in community Now you spit me out your mouth Amazing how Selective your doctrines can be I’m the invisible man Run to me if you can Where in the world Do I fit in your master plan Tell me where is the resting place For the invisible man I am the crucified The sacrifice for my time Hung on this cross of love Arms spread out While all will curse my life You deny I stand among you You obliterate my soul I am trapped by who I am Helpless as the nail drives into wood I’m the invisible man Harder to see The more you misunderstand How long will you push me away With God’s own hand Tell me when will you open your eyes To the invisible man

Carry Me 04:02
sometimes when the road gets rough and darkness is all around i look to see your footprints in the sand but only mine can be found and so I wonder why in times of need i feel like I'm all alone and it's then you remind me that your love will carry me home carry me across the shifting sands carry me to more solid land carry me along the winding road and put me on my feet again carry me and never let me fall carry me keep me standing tall carry me and help me find the strength to stand up on my feet again on my feet again and so when you feel like there's no one by your side just turn your eyes to the one above you let him be your guide carry me...

about

My very first studio album. Here's what I'm proud of about it: the songs and songwriting. Here's what I'm not proud about it: the recording/production quality. At the time I thought it was primo; not so much now. Still, I think it's worth you adding to your digital music collection, albeit at a slightly reduced price, if for no other reason than to see where this musical journey of mine began.
