Time of Our Lives

Yesterday was the time of our lives, we jumped up for the skies
With our hands outreached towards the sun
Hoping we might catch a ray of light before day turned to night
We were many, but still, we were one

Yesterday was the time of our lives, caution thrown to the hives
The whole wide world was ours to claim
We were naive and unachieved, what else could be believed
Through rose tinged lens, all dreams look the same

Yesterday was the time of our lives, we broke free of our ties
Memories are all that can remain
We were dreamers in a youthful haze, bound by our glory days
Unfledged dreams were all that kept us sane

Yesterday was the time of our lives, our hearts being what drives
Unseasoned, but youth is all that strives
Though we long for our childhood past, days come and gone too fast
This is, this is the time of our lives

Silence is my gift to you
Only love from a heart that beats for you
Verses from a spirit that prays for you
All gifts from these ink stained hands that create for you

Silence gives and silence takes
Deaf to the choices she made, she makes
The world turns and the world shakes
All my chips are in and the winner takes

Silence is my gift to you
Only love from a heart that beats for you
Verses from a spirit that prays for you
All gifts from these ink stained hands that create for you

Eyes switch off and ears subdue
Blind as black and deaf as blue
A single road diverged in two
I’ll choose the one that leads to you

Silence is my gift to you
Only love from a heart that beats for you
Verses from a spirit that prays for you
All gifts from these ink stained hands that create for you

In my Heart the Same

December 10, 2011

The God of all the world
Took the sinners and made them saint
God chose the weakest ones
To bless them with His strength

The Lord of all creation
Took the meager and made them bold
God made a child a king
A shepard, a healer of souls

God, my Lord, my Father
You choose the ones most afraid
You give to them the heart of a warrior
The faith to follow the plans you made

Father thou art in Heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy will be done on Earth as in Heaven
And in my heart, the same

Bridge in The Sky

November 21, 2011

I try to live day by day
With a goal that’s on my mind
And I get a little bit closer everyday
To the place I wanna be in my life

I wanna be on a bridge
Up in the sky
Between two buildings
Where the clouds pass me by
As I walk across the bridge
I turn my head to see
A lost little child
Calling back at me
I’m filled with what I’ve found
My feet are off the ground
And I’m fi-i-inally free

I know you wanna help me
But I have to walk and fall
That’s the only way I’ll learn
If I ever learn at all

If I believe that I can fly
I’m gonna turn out all right
I won’t let life pass me by
Without taking my flight

I wanna be on a bridge
Up in the sky
Between two buildings
Where the clouds pass me by
As I walk across the bridge
I turn my head to see
A lost little child
Calling back at me
I’m filled with what I’ve found
My feet are off the ground
And I’m fi-i-inally free

I know it’s hard to believe
But I wanna show you what I see
Come take a leap of faith with me
Take my hand and let me show you
What I see
Everything that means anything
To me
Let me show you what I see

I wanna be on a bridge
Up in the sky
Between two buildings
Where the clouds pass me by
As I walk across the bridge
I turn my head to see
A lost little child
Calling back at me
I’m filled with what I’ve found
My feet are off the ground
And I’m fi-i-inally free

I wanna be on a bridge
Up in the sky
Between two buildings
Where the clouds pass me by
As I walk across the bridge
I turn my head to see
A lost little child
Calling back at me
I’m filled with what I’ve found
My feet are off the ground
And I’m fi-i-inally free

I’m filled with what I’ve found
My feet are off the ground
And I fi-i-inally see

If You Believe

November 14, 2011

Someday you’re gonna fly
Far away from here
You’re gonna look back
And upon your cheek will lie a single tear
But you know
There’s something bigger
Something better waiting for you
So you’ll keep flying
Soaring towards your dreams
You believe

If you believe
In a pain for every season
If you believe
Your suffering has a reason
And in life
You’re given a choice
If you’re hurt
To give your pain a voice
If you believe

You’re far away now
And it hurts to think back
You wish you’d stayed now
But you knew the skies were black
Here it’s only open blue
But you’re so afraid to dive into
So afraid to cross the line
Of no return
Will you fly
Or crash and burn
You believe

If you believe
In a pain for every season
If you believe
Your suffering has a reason
And in life
You’re given a choice
If you’re hurt
To give your pain a voice
If you believe

You’re an old man now
Blessed with years of wisdom
You’ve seen just about everything
You’re only years away from God’s Kingdom
It turns out you crossed that line
And it looks like you did just fine
But still, every now and then
You turn around and look back again
You can’t help but wonder
As you stroll through the memories
Over and under
What if you never flew
What if you never knew
What if you never believed

If you believe
In a pain for every season
If you believe
Your suffering has a reason
And in life
You’re given a choice
If you’re hurt
To give your pain a voice
If you believe

If you believe
In a pain for every season
If you believe
Your suffering has a reason
And in life
You’re given a choice
If you’re hurt
To give your pain a voice
If you believe

If you believe

Someday, Somewhere

November 7, 2011

Like a father figure
I hold her in my arms
And I know she’s leaving this world
As I try to keep her warm
I whisper a lullaby
As I help her family say goodbye
And when the family has left…
I sigh a prayer as a tear falls from my eye

Someday, somewhere
I’m gonna be there
And the world is gonna see
Everything I was meant to be
And those who held me back
Will understand my destiny
Someday, somewhere

With gentle hands
I cradle him as I would my brother
And he looks up at me with a smile
As I hand him to his new mother
I whisper a lullaby
As I wave the parents goodbye
And when the family has left…
I sigh a prayer as a tear falls from my eye

Someday, somewhere
I’m gonna be there
And the world is gonna see
Everything I was meant to be
And those who held me back
Will understand my destiny
Someday, somewhere

Someday, somewhere
I’m gonna be there
And the world is gonna see
Everything I was meant to be
And those who held me back
Will understand my destiny
Someday, somewhere

I’m gonna be there…

Invisible

November 7, 2011

I am the blind man you see everyday as you get on the bus to work. You forget that I am not deaf. I can hear your words of pity. I can feel your stares.
I am the deaf man you overlooked as you skimmed through the employment applications to choose the best applicant in the bunch. “He can’t hear,” you say to yourself. But he sees. He sees your unfair prejudice as you spit on all he’s fought to accomplish.
I am the lame man you look down on as you walk past me. You see only my chair and not the human being that sits upon it.
I am the mute man you roll your eyes at as I softly utter and gesture for assistance. I’m the difficult customer you’re forced to put on a smile for and greet cheerfully. I lower my head in shame for bothering you.
I am everything you are afraid to look at. I don’t exist but only to pester you. My heart does not seek empathy, friendship nor love. I am not a human being.
I am invisible.
