Lyrics

Even now the world is bleedin' but feelin' just fine
All numb in our castle
Where we're always free to choose
Never free enough to find
I wish somethin' would break cuz we're runnin' out of time

And i am overcome
I am overcome
Holy water in my lungs
I am overcome

These women in the street pullin' out their hair
My master's in the yard givin' light to the unaware
This plastic little place
Is just a step amongst the stairs

(chorus)

So drive me out
Out to that open field
Turn the ignition off
And spin around
Your help is here but i'm parked in this open space
Blockin' the gates of love

(chorus x2)

Beautiful drowning
This beautiful drowning
This holy water
This holy water is in my lungs

And i am overcome
I am overcome
I am overcome
I am overcome

Lyrics

Never mind all the things you heard about me
You’re never gonna understand it, no
Every time that I’ve given you the truth
It’s never made a bit of difference, no, no
Disappointment takes you
Then the doubt it breaks you
It’s enough to make you cry

Chorus:
(But you need to believe)
Always lookin’ for a sign
Miracles won’t change your mind
(You need to believe)
Tell me how much evidence you need
(But you need to believe)
Turnin’ truth into a lie
Hardened heart and blinded eyes
(You need to believe)
All you need to do is just believe

Never mind what you think that you would sing
It all can change in just a moment
Here before you is all the proof  you need
Well can’t you ever just believe it, yeah
Disappointment takes you
Then the doubt it breaks you
It’s enough to make you cry

(Chorus)

(But you need to believe)
Yeah
Miracles won’t change your mind
(You need to believe)
Tell me how much evidence you need
(But you need to believe)
Turnin’ truth into a lie
Hardened heart and blinded eyes
(You need to believe)
All you need to do is just believe

Bitter Tears



Artist: Shirley Novak
Topic: Open Forum: Let Me Ask the Questions



Lyrics

Starving babies crying, politicians lying
Murdered child, wars run wild
Floods take away the land
Tended by a sweating man
All gone, history’s gone
What have we done to deserve this
These bitter tears

Chorus:
Life is getting harder, too much
It’s too much, for us to bear
But you’re right there
And we’ll be coming home, coming home to rest

Children taken into care
‘cause mummy said i’d be better off there
Without dad, but he looks so sad
Sitting on the fountain in trafalgar square
Seeing in the new year, do we really care?
Do we care?, do you care?
What have we done to deserve this
These bitter tears

Chorus:
Life is getting harder, too much
It’s too much, for us to bear
But you’re right there
And we’ll be coming home, coming home to rest

Life is getting harder, too much
It’s too much, for us to bear
But you’re right there
And we’ll be coming home, coming home to rest

Coming home to rest, to rest …….
(repeats)

Topic: Making Your Goals Happen



Lyrics

Just about sundown on the levee road near the old fishin’ hole
Teaching me to shoot straight and true was your only goal
You threw a can up in the air and smiled
I pulled the trigger, missed by a mile, you said

Aim a little higher and you can’t miss
Bless that can with a shotgun kiss
Aim a little higher, try it again
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher

In later years on a river of tears I drifted home for awhile
Since shame was the only glory I’d ever known I didn’t change my style
First night home I got drunk and confused
Mistook you for a fool, you were not amused, you said

Aim a little higher, ‘cause you’re not livin’
All this takin’ son and never givin’s
Gonna catch up to you like a ball of fire
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher
Aim a little higher, you’re shootin’ too low
Aim for the dirt and you’ll never know
Glorious redemption or heavenly hope
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher

In those deceptive moments, in those deceptive days
When the dung and the mire looked like the high wire
Will there be anyone who loves me enough to say
“You gotta aim a little higher, aim a little higher, aim a little higher”
“You gotta aim a little higher, aim a little higher, aim a little higher”

Aim a little higher, ‘cause you’re not livin’
All this takin’ son and never givin’s
Gonna catch up to you like a ball of fire
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher
Aim a little higher, you’re shootin’ too low
Aim for the dirt and you’ll never know
Glorious redemption or heavenly hope
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little highe
