Track Name: Spread Your Wings
Brothers and sisters can I call you my friends
Shall we meet by that river where the heartbreaks end
We have cut one another but no prisons fall
I know that one day we're going over the wall

Spread your wings, close your eyes
Let your love flow, come inside
Spread your wings close your eyes
Let your love flow come inside

We are standing on an endless horizon
With our faces turned into the blazing sun
And we have come all this way to Armageddon
Just to find that the battle has been won

Spread your wings, close your eyes
Let your love flow, come inside
Spread your wings close your eyes
Let your love flow come inside

Brothers shall fear no beast in the wood
And sisters they shall have themselves a Robin Hood
While the shadows of fear become your friends in the night
Just step away from the grave and into the light

Spread your wings, close your eyes
Let your love flow, come inside
Spread your wings close your eyes
Let your love flow come inside
Track Name: The Love
Lyrics pending-
Track Name: God's Not Dead
God's not dead
He's merely hiding
You can see him in the morning
When the sun is rising

Greed's not good and God's not dead
I don't care what Nietzsche or Ayn Rand said
The blood of every man is red
And I'm not going to war

They justify all the things they do
With convoluted logic and
The waves still pound upon the sand
And will when they are gone

God's not dead
He's merely hiding
You can see him in the morning
When the sun is rising

You can build a paradise
Or wall yourself inside a tomb
Kick against the holy womb
And kick against the wounds

Were still one be you so blind
To fight against the living light
You can't hide inside that night
There's nowhere to go

Chorus

Love is stronger than a lie
Water's harder than a stone
No one has to be alone
Tears will wash you dry

Round and round the Ferris wheel
Of birth and death rolls round and round
The master laid it on the line
You can go with him

God's not dead
He's merely hiding
You can see him in the morning
When the sun is rising
Track Name: I Need More Light
I've been searching for an answer
To the question that is my life
I've heard theories and descriptions
Nothing's proven, I need more light

CHORUS
I need more light
To shine on me
More and more light
So I can see
Into the center of the living soul
Transform my being
Lord, make me whole

You work for years to buy your freedom
But your freedom, it's not for sale
It's yours already, you cannot lose it
If you don't give up boy, you cannot fail

CHORUS
I need more light
To shine on me
More and more light
So I can see
Into the center of the living soul
Transform my being
Lord, make me whole

There is a great and shining victory
A star of hope in the darkest night
If I could see it, I would embrace it
I know you're in there, I need more light

CHORUS
I need more light
To shine on me
More and more light
So I can see
Into the center of the living soul
Transform my being
Lord, make me whole

Will I awaken? Will I keep dreaming
Will you forgive me, restore my sight
Oh precious memory, I can't remember
What you look like, I need more light

CHORUS
I need more light
To shine on me
More and more light
So I can see
Into the center of the living soul
Transform my being
Lord, make me whole

The earth is turning, the sky is listening
The wind is wailing, I hold on tight
To this moment, I search for meaning
I want to understand, but I need more light

CHORUS
I need more light
To shine on me
More and more light
So I can see
Into the center of the living soul
Transform my being
Lord, make me whole
Transform my being
Lord, make me whole
Track Name: When Darkness Falls
When darkness falls
And you come to me
The stars will heal this troubled world
With their melody

When the sands run out
From the glass of time
I know my love will always be true
As long as you're mine

And we'll go freely on our own
Deep inside we are never alone
As long as you come When darkness falls
When darkness falls

When darkness falls
And the dream is done
I will never regret what it's cost
For the distance run

So many hearts
Break from dispair
But mine is strong and shines like the sun
While you are there

Repeat chorus

When darkness falls
On the eyes that can't see
The light from our love will shine on the gates
Of an endless peace

And we will go on and on
We will have it all
And darkness will turn
Turn into light
When darkness falls
Yes darkness will turn
Turn into light
When darkness falls
When darkness falls
When darkness falls
Fade (heh heh)
Track Name: Prevail
I'm looking out my window
And I watch you as you dance
Through the air and all the colors
Of the world beneath your feet
The drums are moving through the wind
That you are moving through
And it's as if the whole of creation
Everybody finally knew

Darling I must thank you
You worked it out for me
There is nothing left to do
The prevailing wind is blowing through
There is only one...
It will prevail

You got all that energy
I see mountains wash away
I see lights upon the shore
I know what I came here for
I think of other lifetimes
When you were just as fair
I can see you sparkle
For a moment I was there

Darling I must thank you
You worked it out for me
There is nothing left to do
The prevailing wind is blowing through
There is only one...
It will prevail

Right here in this moment
I can feel our love increase
As we stand before the angel
And the ultimate release
We all want to sleep with someone
Then we want to waltz away
Yeah but there is only one like you
And I am here to stay

Darling I must thank you
You worked it out for me
There is nothing left to do
The prevailing wind is blowing through
There is only one...
It will prevail
Track Name: No Tracks
He went on this morning
She left here last week
They both left somebody
No one caught the thief
A small frame of words
In the afternoon paper
A little for now
And nothing for later

CHORUS
No one has told them
They do not know
They leave no tracks when they go
They leave no tracks when they go
They leave no tracks when they go

I move like a ghost
Through the graveyards of night
And the smoke from the factories
It curls out of sight
And the wind hits the poplars
In some farmers field
Where nothing is growing
The land isn't healed

CHORUS
No one has told them
And they do not know
They leave no tracks when they go
They leave no tracks when they go
They leave no tracks when they go

Girls hang on the corner
As heavy as time
With eyes that stage whisper
<i>"Ooh baby be mine"</i>
But I'll find love some morning
When love comes for me
And my coffin is opened
And I am set free

CHORUS
No one has told me
And I do not know
I'll leave no tracks when I go
I'll leave no tracks when I go
I'll leave no tracks when I go...
Track Name: Pure Sweet Love
CHORUS
Love, love, pure sweet love
Love, love, pure sweet love
Love, love, pure sweet love

Pouring from the heaven
Still in time and space
Maybe you can't see it
But love is every place
Breathe it deep inside you
Breathe it out again
You can give it to a stranger
You can find it in a friend

CHORUS
I'm talking 'bout
Love, love, pure sweet love
Love, love, pure sweet love
Love, love, pure sweet love

I don't know why you're crying
Did someone make you sad
Your heart can hold more love now
More love than it had
You know you only only suffer
Thinking of yourself
You'll feel a whole lot better
If you help somebody else

CHORUS
And give them
Love, love, pure sweet love
Love, love, pure sweet love
Love, love, pure sweet love

Life can be struggle
That's something we all know
But love can take you further
When you don't know where to go
You can dig a little deeper
Find that love inside
Let it fill you like an ocean
And float it on the tide

CHORUS
And bring them
Love, love, pure sweet love
Love, love, pure sweet love
Love, love, pure sweet love
Track Name: Just Like a River
Just Like a River
You carry me away
Just like a river
You're changing every day

On your banks I've sat, my whole life
Tumbling down the stairway of time
The peaceful beauty of your flow
Has opened up my mind

Everywhere that I go
It's like nothing has changed
The same old, same old is still the same
They say life's a river and I know it's true
'cos that river brought me to you

Just like a river
You carry me away
Just like a river
You're changing every day

Just like a river
You carry me away
Just like a river
You're changing every day

TRUMPETY INTERLUDE

Just like a river
You carry me away
Just like a river
You're changing every day

So many different dreams in life go by
And you think you're finally here
Oh, but you're twisting like a leaf in the wind
Until you disappear

You search and you search
But you just can't find
I know now what they say was true
'cos I never found nothing in my whole life
Until I found you

Just like a river
You carry me away
Just like a river
You're changing every day

Just like a river
You carry me away
Just like a river
You're changing every day

Every day, every day, every day....
Track Name: Imaginary Queen
Jesus Christ... (repeat)

I gave you every thing I could
Or that I thought you might be thinking of
I spoke to you the hearts own words
To convince you it was really love

But you're like some imaginary Queen
You cut my head off in the final scene
I guess I was too young to understand
You came here to crucify the man

You are like a city burning
Full of dreams that no one sees come true
And your pain just keeps on growing
Until this empty darkness swallows you

And there is nothing you can find to fill you
There's water everywhere but you won't drink
Your blind and you're naked and you're hungry
But love may be much closer than you think

You have turned this garden into ashes
Nothing you believed has become true
In this field of grief you are abandoned
There you are loves lost forgotton fool

And there is nothing you can find to fill you
There's water everywhere but you won't drink
You're blind and you're naked and you're hungry
But love may be much closer than you think

Jesus Christ... (repeat)
Track Name: Every Day
Every day that comes is like a lifetime
And every day the universe is born
But most of us just struggle with our demons
And never understand who brings the sun

But oh to understand that golden mystery
To see the whole inside of every part
To know the sun that's rising in the heavens
Is rising all the time inside your heart

Every day, every day, every day, every day
Every day

Now truth is not the sun nor shapely moonshine
That wakes the earth with thunder or with song
No truth's a jewel that's clothed in mortal blindness
And it is all that's left once we've gone

Every day, every day, every day, every day
Every day

So take heart each time you see your friend the sun rise
A symbol of that sun too bright to see
And know there are no chains can ever hold you
When you embrace the truth it sets you free
Yes when you embrace the truth it sets you free

Every day, every day, every day, every day, every day...
