When we are alone
what do I see
a true love
that was meant to be

Every word you say
shines in my heart
like the sun
on a bright noon day

CHORUS X2
I am drifting up in the air
I am soaring on the winds of love
I want you to be
walking on the clouds here with me

I have to hold on tight
to this heart of mine
It's getting stormy at night
the seas go wild

I want to be consumed
by the fire you carry within you
Let me be the one
that hides in your heart

BRIDGE
You can take my heart
You can take my soul
I give you my life
and will tell you
all you wanna know

CHORUS X3
I am drifting up in the air
I am soaring on the winds of love
I want you to be
walking on the clouds here with me

DRIFTING

God, o God
do not forsake this land
we are Your people
made by Your own hand

We will give You the glory
and walk by Your way
if You would change this sad story
into a brand new day

CHORUS X2
We give glory
to the Saviour of the world
We give glory
to the healer of our hearts
We give glory
to the one true God
We give glory
to our God, EL Shadai

We give You our hopes
we give You our dreams
we're hanging on a rope
with death at our seams

Dear Father God,
please hear our prayer
and forsake us not
You're the only one that care

CHORUS X3
We give glory
to the Saviour of the world
We give glory
to the healer of our hearts
We give glory
to the one true God
We give glory
to our God, EL Shadai

DO NOT FORSAKE THIS LAND

VERSE 1
Up and down we go
every day a mystery
never know where
we will be

Round and round
we turn
a lesson in life
we have to learn

We feel so strong
when we belong
turn the key
when we agree

CHORUS
Stop for a while
and be happy
look around and smile
while there's still time

Be yourself
and stop pretending
give a little love
and understanding

Life is great
if we make it that way
Love is good
if we want it to stay

VERSE 2
save my soul
from control
drugs and sex
and rock and roll

In and out
we fall in love
this is how
we tend to plough

We give and take
every day
we take no care
to throw our life away

CHORUS x2
Stop for a while
and be happy
look around and smile
while there's still time

Be yourself
and stop pretending
give a little love
and understanding

Life is great
if we make it that way
Love is good
if we want it to stay

STOP FOR A WHILE

TWO LOVERS IN THE NIGHT

VERSE 1
I'm stuck in darkness
in the silence of my heart
I have lost my voice
I have lost my way

Aimlessly I wander
through the forest of the night
I can feel the shadows
tapping at my shoulder
winking me on the path
to death and destruction

CHORUS
Is there a friend out there
someone to break this silence
to redeem me
from this circle of violence

Is there a friend out there
I need a prayer...

VERSE 2
I have done it all
from drugs to sex without end
now they are coming for me
supposed to be my friends
how was I to know
when their promises satisfied me
It felt so good

I've tried to hide
my secrets behind closed eyes
I've closed my ears
for them fancy people
I didn't want to hear
'cos what do they know

Can you see me
I need a prayer
I'm calling out
Can you hear me
I'm falling out

PRE-CHORUS
I need a prayer...

CHORUS X2
Is there a friend out there
someone to break this silence
to redeem me
from this circle of violence

Is there a friend out there
I need a prayer...

SILENCE

VERSE 1
Paint me a picture
of what's going on inside of you
I see those tears rolling down
I know you have a story to tell

I can feel your heartache
your heart is torn apart
how you can still put up a smile
just blows my mind

CHORUS
Here I am
ready when you need me
my arms open wide
whenever you need someone

I will be your friend
and hold your hand to the end
I will not let you walk
this road alone

VERSE 2
If you will let me
carry that burden for you,
even only for a little while
I am still here for you

Don't get stuck with that pain
otherwise it will never go away
You are incredible strong
even if life had done you so wrong

PRE-CHORUS
Come to me
come to me
come to me
come to me

CHORUS X2
Here I am
ready when you need me
my arms open wide
whenever you need someone

I will be your friend
and hold your hand to the end
I will not let you walk
this road alone

HERE I AM

VERSE 1
I cannot bare to carry this hate
its not fair the hurt you dish on my plate
there is so much good
in the life out there
why must I be here
if you don't care

CHORUS
I will rather turn my back
and walk away from you
than having you
try to control me too

I've been on the ground
where it is not safe and sound
but at least I am free
and know how to bend a knee

VERSE 2
leaving you is not my wish
but I'm telling you
not another day of this
I have a heart
and I know myself
I believe in love
not a doll on the shelf

CHORUS
I will rather turn my back
and walk away from you
than having you
try to control me too

I've been on the ground
where it is not safe and sound
but at least I am free
and know how to bend a knee

VERSE 3
I have tried to reason with you
but it seems
you're drugged by the ego in you
so what can I say, except
to be good and go well

CHORUS X2
I will rather turn my back
and walk away from you
than having you
try to control me too

I've been on the ground
where it is not safe and sound
but at least I am free
and know how to bend a knee

TURNING MY BACK

INTRO
oh ye let's get the band
ay ye and rock this stand

VERSE
From the bush to the field
with battered armour and a shield
From the darkness into the light
I just want to end this fight

It may be hard to understand
the beauty of a meadowland
from the place that I'm at
a knight in ceaseless combat

CHORUS
Take me away
Take me away
Take me away from here

I wanno have some fun
before the day is done
let's get this party into gear

I wanno make a noise
and hang out with the boys
let's get this show on the road

VERSE
From the shadows to the sun
I'm always on the run
I can see a light at the end
it"s just around the bend

Between the towering trees
there's a whisper in the breeze
saying keep your head up high
because I'll never say goodbye

CHORUS
Take me away
Take me away
Take me away from here

I wanno have some fun
before the day is done
let's get this party into gear

I wanno make a noise
and hang out with the boys
let's get this show on the road

BRIDGE
will you send me some love
and bless me from above
will you show me the way
and stay another day

OUTRO
Take me away
Take me away
Take me away from here
