I Need You Completely

My hopes and my dreams
Are not what they seem
When I share them with you
My fears you allay
You take them away
And make them your own

I need you completely
Then you kiss me so sweetly
Our lives collide
There’s no place to hide
I see but I’m blind
Our lives so entwined
And this much is true
I will always love you

Even when I’m sleeping
You watch over my dreaming
All through the night
You give me such peace
And bring me release
From cares of the world

I need you completely
Then you kiss me so sweetly
Our lives collide
There’s no place to hide
I see but I’m blind
Our lives so entwined
And this much is true
I will always love you

Desperate

Father God I never knew,
Just how much I needed You
Until You were all I had.
Now I’m standing here alone
Nothing left I’m on my own
I know that You are all I have.

And I’m;
Desperate for Your Mercy
I’m Desperate for Your Grace
I’m Desperate for Your Love
To come and fill this place.
I’m Desperate for Your Glory
I’m Desperate for Your touch
I’m Desperate for Your Power
To come and fill this place.

In this place I will stand
I will wait for Your command
And listen till I hear Your voice
I will wait for You to speak
Nothing else will I seek
Your word is all that I need.

And I’m;
Desperate for Your Mercy
I’m Desperate for Your Grace
I’m Desperate for Your Love
To come and fill this place.
I’m Desperate for Your Glory
I’m Desperate for Your touch
I’m Desperate for Your Power
To come and fill this place.

In each and every day
In each and every way
I’m reaching out to You
You are my best Friend
On You I will depend
You’re my beginning and my end.

And I’m;
Desperate for Your Mercy
I’m Desperate for Your Grace
I’m Desperate for Your Love
To come and fill this place.
I’m Desperate for Your Glory
I’m Desperate for Your touch
I’m Desperate for Your Power
To come and fill this place.

The Heat of the Moment

In the heat of the moment
When life is falling apart
Your quiet voice speaks to me
And love just floods my heart
In the heat of the moment
When I’m unsure of my role
That quiet voice speaks again
And sanctifies my soul.

What a wonderful moment
You mean the world to me
What a wonderful moment
Your love has set me free.

In the heat of the moment
When I’m trapped and need to flee
Your quiet voice speaks once more
And suddenly I’m free
In the heat of the moment
When nothing’s going right
That quiet voice speaks again
Giving strength for the fight.

What a wonderful moment
You mean the world to me
What a wonderful moment
Your love has set me free.

In the heat of the moment
When fear is in my eyes
I feel that I am drowning
But I’m only being baptised
In the heat of the moment
When you come to set me free
That quiet voice speaks again
Your spirit dwells in me.

What a wonderful moment
You mean the world to me
What a wonderful moment
Your love has set me free.

Burger and Beer

Michael, get your boat in the water
Row me to the distant shore
I’ve had my fill of the Promised land
And I ain’t staying here no more
You’re telling me it’s a paradise
I wanna make one thing clear
You might have milk and honey, but
What about a burger and beer.

Row me, row me, row me to the distant shore
Row me, row me, ‘cos I ain’t staying here no more
Row me, row me, row me to the distant shore
Row me, row me, ‘cos I ain’t staying here no more

There might be lots of peace and love
But I’m not ready yet
To leave that vale of tears behind,
So the Promised land I quit.

Row me, row me, row me to the distant shore
Row me, row me, ‘cos I ain’t staying here no more
Row me, row me, row me to the distant shore
Row me, row me, ‘cos I ain’t staying here no more

Now Michael, he says you can’t go back
Once you’re here you’re here to stay
Hey man there ain’t no fine cuisine, but
We can do you a take-away.

Row me, row me, row me to the distant shore
Row me, row me, ‘cos I ain’t staying here no more
Row me, row me, row me to the distant shore
Row me, row me, ‘cos I ain’t staying here no more

 

 

Tightrope of Life

I’m telling you straight that this is my life
And I’m living it scared on the edge of a knife
So, this is my life, and I wonder if you
Are living the same, balanced there too.

On the tightrope of life, I’m frozen in space
Too scared to move, and trapped in this place
On the tightrope of life, I’m staring ahead
Not truly alive, but not really dead.
On the tightrope of life, just balancing here
I haven’t a hope, and I haven’t a prayer
On the tightrope of life, I’m staring ahead
Not truly alive, but not really dead.

But now I can hear a small quiet voice
It’s calling me out, and giving a choice
I’m not really sure if I’m rich or I’m poor
I couldn’t have guessed, now I couldn’t care less

On the tightrope of life, I’m frozen in space
Too scared to move, and trapped in this place
On the tightrope of life, I’m staring ahead
Not truly alive, but not really dead.
On the tightrope of life, just balancing here
I haven’t a hope, and I haven’t a prayer
On the tightrope of life, I’m staring ahead
Not truly alive, but not really dead.

The love that I found, it came from above
It’s keeping me sane, and we fit like a glove
I’m no longer trapped on the edge of a knife
I’m walking free on the tightrope of life.

On the tightrope of life, I’m frozen in space
Too scared to move, and trapped in this place
On the tightrope of life, I’m staring ahead
Not truly alive, but not really dead.
On the tightrope of life, just balancing here
I haven’t a hope, and I haven’t a prayer
On the tightrope of life, I’m staring ahead
Not truly alive, but not really dead.

American Dream

A small town in Missouri
I was drifting through
Stopping off for coffee
I had some donuts too
She stepped out from the counter
Wore a million dollar smile
And legs so long
I was breathless for a while

It’s not like I was looking
She caught me unaware
But once we’d exchanged glances
I was left without a prayer
She walked out from the diner
And took me by the hand
Her place though small
Soon became the promised land

The days were long but the nights were longer
I was old, she made me younger
But I swear to God I never wronged her
She’s a Southern queen
She’s my American dream

I stayed there for the summer
Called her place my own
Then come the Fall it all turned sour
And she cut me to the bone

The days were long but the nights were longer
I was old, she made me younger
But I swear to God I never wronged her
She’s a Southern queen
She’s my American dream

 

Rock and Roll Dreamers

You see them on the TV news

Old guys now in their blue suede shoes

And sleek silver hair tied back in ponytails.

Stepping out of limousines

On their arms ex beauty queens

With perfect hair and oh, so perfect nails.

I never made it big

I never made it small

I never even made it at all

But I’m still a rock and roll dreamer

Please don’t laugh I know it’s bizarre

But I still believe I could be a star

 

Lights on their stage no longer glow

Encores sung, it’s the end of the show

The final curtain dropped on their long careers.

They’ve had their day, stars have shone

The stage is clear, people gone

With faint applause still ringing in their ears.

 

I never made it big

I never made it small

I never even made it at all

But I’m still a rock and roll dreamer

Please don’t laugh I know it’s bizarre

But I still believe I could be a star

In village halls and local bars

I sing my songs, play guitar

And scan the room for agents in every face.

Time is up I pack away

Even though I’d love to stay

But tomorrow they play in another place. 

Following friends down ancient tracks

Praying to God they’ll make it back

Amazed so far that they’ve survived

Their only dream now is stayin’ alive.

I never made it big
I never made it small
I never even made it at all
But I’m still a rock and roll dreamer
Please don’t laugh I know it’s bizarre
But I still believe I could be a star
I’m just an old rock and roll dreamer.
