100 Of Nothing Lyrics

I Tried To Analize And Understand
Rationalize And Comprehend
I’m Trying But I’m Failing Now
I Need The Common Sense I’ve
Lost Along The Way, Or Never Had
It’s Obviously Gone
I Tried To Compromise And Spread It Thin
I Played The Odds And Lost It All
I’m Sinking Too Fast To Call Out
You’ll Never Hear Me Crying
I Tried To Go Your Way, What Can I Say
I Guess I Never Wanted It Or Wanted To Be
The Way You Wanted It For Me
I Wish I Could Have Given It To You
I Guess We’ll Have To Wait And See
Give Me Some Time Away
And Let Me Sleep On It
I Have A Long Life Still Ahead Of Me
For Now I’ll Start With An Apology…
Cause I Admit It, I Regret It
Now I’m On The Outside
Of The Circle I Thought I’d Be In
Go On This Way I’ll Never Make It Through
I’ll Rip A Thousand Parts Into
A Million Pieces, I’ve Spread Myself Thin
And Nothings Getting Done

3000 Miles Away Lyrics

3000 Miles Away

New Orleans could not find the groove
In Nashville the grass did not seem blue
And Denver did not seem more than three feet high
The Empire did not scrape the sky
And the White House seemed gray
When you're 3000 miles away

In Boston there was no common ground
And Long Island did not make a sound
Niagara rises and Old Faithful falls
At Camden they did not play ball
But who cares if they play
When you're 3000 miles away

CHORUS
Your absence changes me and everything seems so wrong
But with no sense of irony
I write you this sweet love song today
3000 miles away

Chicago could not muster a breeze
And there was a blizzard in The Keys
New England's charms were wasted on these eyes
I fear it came as no surprise
Because it's just another day
When you're 3000 miles away

REPEAT CHORUS

Distance is my tutor
So well he's teaching me
In the education of appreciation
And I got my PH.D.

In Georgia you're all that's on my mind
In Cape Cod the ocean was untied
And the motor city threw a rod
And now I'm praying to you God
Take me home to that face
3000 miles away

Afterwhile Lyrics

Afterwhile by Kirk Franklin
on CD: Hero
Yolanda Adams lead vocal
also on Yolanda Adams "Day By Day" CD

Afterwhile, afterwhile
This too shall past
Afterwhile
Scars will heal, you'll love again
It won't hurt you afterwhile (2x)

Stuck between if and when
You prayed and tried
But still no end
God's purpose soon you'll understand
It won't hurt you afterwhile (2x)

Afterwhile, afterwhile
This too shall past
Afterwhile
Scars will heal, you'll love again
It won't hurt you afterwhile

So when the pain has come to end
And now your heart is whole again
Help someone who needs to know
That it won't hurt them afterwhile (3x)

Better Lyrics

If I could, Id get away
Far from all this trouble I see everyday
Nobody wants to, show their face
This life is like a masquerade
I know You love me, I know You care
But while Im hurting
I just need to know Youre there
Watching over me, and I feel You telling me


Chorus


Count it all joy, always remember
Life will get better, its gonna get better
No matter the weapon, it will not prosper
Things will get better, its gonna be better


Persecuted, pushed away
Didnt think Id live to see another day
Cried some tears and, couldnt pray
And when I tried at times
I couldnt find the words to say
But now Im stronger, because of You
Without You Jesus I never could have made it through


Thank You for watching me
Loving me and telling me


Chorus


Bridge

Life sometimes may change and nobody wants to feel pain
But it came to help you grow, this one thing you need to know
Gods in love with you and Hell never let you go


Chorus

First Love Lyrics

Verse 1:
I know they hurt ya
they saw you stumble but didnt help ya
and now they left ya
They were quick to pray but slow to move
and now your empty
too tired to run you walk away
In the night there's a voice if you listen, He sweetly says

Chorus:
Come back to your first love, first love
Come back to your first love, first love
Come back home , back where you belong
Come back to your, to your first love, first love first love, first love, first love, first love, first love

Verse 2:
You didnt make it,
you thought your love would last forever
Aint it funny
how a chapter can make a story change
Cold and lonely
You never knew hurt could feel this way
Understand there's a plan if you patient
hear the savior say

Chorus:
Come back to your first love, first love
Come back to your first love, first love
Come back home , back where you belong
Come back to your, to your first love, first love first love, first love, first love, first love, first love

Vamp:
God is able to heal if you lsten
And He'll show you His will if you listen
But you gotta be still and just listen listen
God is able to heal if you lsten

But you gotta be still and just listen listen

Come back to your first love, first love

Five Lyrics

Five

When I get to heaven I want to be a 5 year old forever
A little closer to the ground
Look at all the change I found in the grocery store
I jumped off the couch today, I swear I was not afraid
'Cause I had on my red cape just like Superman
I caught a blue belly with my best buddy
Eddie in the driveway yesterday
I got so excited that I squeezed the tail tight
It popped off and it got away, but that's okay
It's alright

CHORUS

When I was Five
Feeling so alive
Running proud and free
I'll bet you can't catch me, oh no
Running through the rain
Splashing in the mud
I can act insane
Living life' s my favorite game

When I get to heaven I want to be a 5 year old forever
I've got a fire engine that's just my size
I'd drive all night to see the sunrise if my mom would let me
There is nothing I can't do when I have on my underoos
Just like Luke Skywalker
I found I had a neighbor, a real trouble
maker named Michael Carmody
He poked out all the knotholes in the fence
And gave me handfuls of his army figurines
So small and green (and good)
It's alright

REPEAT CHORUS

The world had not yet lied to me
As far as I knew I was free
I was free, I was free

REPEAT CHORUS

When I get to heaven, When I get to heaven

Flying Blind Lyrics

Flying Blind

I'm just fine, but in time, this sunshine will surely fade into the moonlight
I'll adapt without a map, feeling trapped, Only seeing what my headlights
But if I share this skin I'm living in and know I can't go alone
And I say...

CHORUS:
You've got the lead, You've got the reigns
I'm flying blind, so I'll stay behind You
I've got the faith You'll take me there
I'm flying blind, awing and prayer to guide me
I gotta give control, give control
To the Pilot of my soul

I'm a man who could stand to lose command, so You can clearly give me direction
I'm piggyback 'cause what I lack is a track that will get me to the station
But if I shed this skin I'm living in and know I can't go alone
And I say...

CHORUS

Soul flyin', it ain't easy
But with the Good Lord, I know He'll take me there
With the Good Lord by my side, I know I'll make it through the night
As Jesus Christ, He leads me to my freedom
I've got the freedom

CHORUS

Hero Lyrics

Hero

I bought the CD, downloaded the mp3
I even bought the import from the Japanese
I read the bio to see what you're all about
Let's put it this way folks, this guy is no boy scout
I'm missing the point

CHORUS
What if I had a hero that I just could not believe in
A self indulgent model of an egotistic human being
Who boasts about his reckless life in every interview
Yeah, oh man, I can't believe in you

He plays the guitar so he gets his one night stands
He's always being watched by his adoring fans
A role model isn't what he ever asked to be
With fame there comes this thing: responsibility
I'm missing the point

REPEAT CHORUS

I guess I'm playing the game
I guess that I'm the one to blame
I put my faith in man
Though he'll turn to dust
I'll put my faith and all my trust
In the One who made me

REPEAT CHORUS

Back to "Hero" Album



I Live Lyrics

I Live

Move in me as You must
Breath Your life into this dust

Mold my heart to Your will
Shape this shapeless soul until

CHORUS
I live to sing Your praise
Like a lullaby, like Amazing Grace
I live to sing Your praise
Until my days are gone
And I see Your face

Mysteries remain unknown
Until I stand before Your throne

I lift my eyes to take You in
I long for this, but until then

REPEAT CHORUS

Imagine Me Lyrics

Imagine me, loving what I see when the
Mirror looks at me cause I imagine me
In a place of no insecurities
And Im finally happy cause
I imagine me

Letting go of all of the ones who hurt me
Cause they never did deserve me
Can you imagine me

Saying no to thoughts that try to control me
Remembering all you told me
Lord can You imagine me

Over what my mamma said
And healed from what my daddy did
And I wanna live and not read that page again

Chorus
Imagine me, being free
Trusting you totally
Finally I canimagine me

I admit it was hard to see
You being in love with someone like me
But finally I canimagine me

Being strong and not letting people break me down
You wont get that joy this time around
Can you imagine me

In a world where nobody has to live afraid
Because of your love fears gone away
Lord, can You imagine me

Bridge
Letting go of my past
And glad I have another chance
And my heart will dance
Cause I dont have to read that page again

Vamp
Gone, gone, its gone, all gone

Keep Your Head Lyrics

Verse
I look in your eyes
I know your fight
I feel your trouble
Waiting in line
Praying this time
Life won't pass you by
In the news
Another one dies
Tell me what do you do
Negativity pulling me down
I can't stay down I
Wish I could make it go away
Wish I could find the right words to say
I'm calling You please
Jesus I need to hear a word from You

Channel
I gotta know that there's more to this life
Than what I can see and
Wanna feel how it feels to know real love
And see me happy

Have a faith that can say to a storm
You're "temporary"
I wanna be free
If you wanna be free

Chorus
(Keep your head)
I'm keeping my eyes on you
You gotta come through
'Cause You promised me
(Keep your head)
Can hardly wait til You come
'Cause You're the one
My heart's been waiting for

Repeat all

Breakdown
Clap your hands ya'll
All my people can you clap your hands
Let me hear you say (yeah)
If you know that things have gotta change say
(yeah)
That nothing grows without a little rain say (yeah)
That no matter what they tell ya
God is waiting and He's listening
Don't look back 'cause it gets better say (yeah)
If you're blessed to have healthy kids say (yeah)
If you're blessed to have a place to live say (yeah)
Stop chasin' after everything you see
Might not have everything you want
But you have everything you need

Lost And Found Lyrics

Lost And Found

I see You everywhere
Love through Your creation

I watch it all play out
Creative presentation

And it renews my mind

I see a bird in flight
A baby and its mother

I see a homeless man
A baby born to suffer

And it renews my mind

CHORUS
Mysterious ways I cant make out
But I can honestly say without a doubt
Im lost and found in You

I see the paradox
With wheat, the tares included
You cant pull out the tares
The wheat will be uprooted
And it renews my mind

REPEAT CHORUS

I cant take a master shot
Of what the futures got
But know its in Your hands
I know Youre kind and true
All these things are true of You
And it renews, it renews my mind

REPEAT CHORUS

I see a crown of thorns
And hands with nails right through them
I see His outstretched arms
Beckoning all to Him
And it renews my mind

Flying Blind

Questioning The Notion Lyrics

Questioning The Notion

I've also wondered why across the map
Most of the people starve while few grow fat
And I too have found it hard to sleep
When three corners of the square will weep
And one will laugh and buy and eat and drink

CHORUS
Questioning the notion that God is full of love
Is a tempting road to take when you forget about His blood
But I choose to still believe Him, His heart is kind and just
I'm only seeing half the picture, for the other half I'll trust

I can't explain why helpless children pay
For all the careless sin their parents made
And I've found it hard to see how God is just
In a world decayed by selfish lust
When my faith and reason don't align, I'll trust

REPEAT CHORUS

He's in control
So I'm faced with a decision
Let my concepts all be broken
I can fall upon the rock
And trust that justice will be spoken
Or I can spin my mind in circles
Making sense of all I see
My faith will ground to powder
When the rock falls on me

REPEAT CHORUS

Sunshine Lyrics

Intro
You bring the sun out
To make my love grow
To warm my life up

Chorus
(You bring the sun out)
You're the reason that I'm living
I was hurting but I'm happy again
(You bring the sun out)
Lord I wanna thank You 'cause
(You bring the sun out, to make my love grow)
(You bring the sun out)
You were there when I had nothing
You've been with me from beginning to end
(You bring the sun out)
No clouds in the sky, that's the reason why
(I love You)

Verse 1
Question number one
[What can I do]
Question number two
[What can I say]
To try to let You know
[I appreciate, all of the ways]
[You get me through my day]
Never would have thought that
[I would be here]
A heart with no scars
[A face with no tears]
How can I thank You
[How can I show You]
[Wish I could get the whole world to know You]

Channel
If they only knew
[You are the one that gives me the air to breathe]
And see I can't deny that
[You're the reason why my life has a melody yeah]
And even when I stray
[I still feel Your grace pulling me close to You]
So no matter where You are
Just know I'm not far
[Without You what would I do]

Chorus

Verse 2
Question number three
[Where would I be]
And Lord not only that but
[How could You see]
My days and my nights
The pains of my life
But now it's alright
['Cause You worked it out for me]
You gave me a chance
[When I had no chance]
When I needed help
[You gave me Your hand]
So now they need to see
Just what You mean to me
If You ever left me
[Where would I be]

Repeat Channel
Repeat Chorus 2x

Breakdown
I feel the sunlight on my life
Reminding me that it is alright
And I see the rainbow
And I know
My storm has finally passed away
There is a soft wind
That begins to blow back the clouds
So I can see
Your perfect plan
Now I can hurry to my destiny

Ooh Ha ha

Tangled Web Lyrics

Tangled Web

Tick-tock the clock ticks to zero
Right now the world needs a hero
Maybe thats me but Ive got voices in my head

Theyre talking about revolution
Suggesting Im the solution
Stand like a man but here Im hanging by a little thread

Twisted reflection, perception
Just what do I see
In this mirror, its clearer to me, that

CHORUS
Its a tangled web
Its a tangled web Im weaving
Its a tangled web
Hello again, I must be leaving

Cant stop the yarn I am spinning
Straight faced or am I still grinning
Dont know, cant tell, oh well, its all just a crazy game

Im too close to the danger
Of living life like a stranger
This place, this face I see is me, but its not the same

Losing perspective, selective
And hazy memory
It seems like a dream, but its no fantasy, that

REPEAT CHORUS
Theyre talking bout revolution
Suggesting Im the solution

Not just surviving, reviving
This life that I lead
In this mirror, its clearer to me

Right now the world needs a hero

Without You Lyrics

Verse 1

I can take a plane high up in the sky and fly for a million miles
Write a melody so sweet, make a tear turn into a smile
And I can see the color of spring I can even feel the weather change
And soon the leaves fall and winter calls, cause nothing ever stays the same
When I think of where Ive been, what Ive done and all I own
How I think I know everything, like I made it here on my own
And like the wind that blows
And like a flower that grows
Still with all I can do


Chorus 1


Without You, lifes a song with no end
Without You, like having a heart that wont mend
Without You, were just actors on a stage
Like a child whos lost his way
We wouldnt be here today without You


Verse 2


I admit that sometimes my pride tries to hide my view
And even this gift that You gave me, I forget its for You
And all the many days and many ways Your grace Ive abused
Still you were patient and Your love loved me through
But the wind still blows, and the flower still grows and one thing is still true


Chorus 2

[ Without You ] lifes a wound that wont heal
Without You, nothing in this world is for real
Without You


Bridge

Cant live, cant see Your will for me
Cant do anything [alt. anything]


Vamp

Without You, were like a bride with no groom
Without You, its like seeing no sunshine in June
Without You, were just actors on a stage
Like a child whos lost its way, wouldnt be here today
Without You, Jesus my life would be lost without You
Without You, Ill never know what it cost
To see You lay Your life down for me
From my past now Im free


Tell me where would I be without You
Tell me where would I be without You
Wouldnt be here today without You
Wouldnt be here today without You
