Song Lyrics

Bartender

Going to church doesn’t make you a Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car. –G.K Chesterton

For man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks upon the heart. –Samuel 16:7

If you judge people you have no time to love them. –Mother Teresa

Hustle man rider walks into a bar
Slams down a shot, can’t go any farther
Says I’m done, done with this run
Bartender says: You owe none
Red devil woman with her slip n’slide
Asks for a bottle she’ll be safe inside
Says here’s the tide that changes
Bartender says: There’re no strangers
Breakfast bevies with their mortar in line
Mixing whiskey, water, and wine
Say no, That’s no way to roll
Bartender says: You’re free to go
Bartender says: You’re free, or you can go.

Contender

Every Champion was once a contender that refused to give up. – Rocky Balboa

With God, all things are possible. Matt 19:26

Rage, rage against the dying of the light. –Dylan Thomas

Can you hear me, can you hear me now?
Just nod your head if you can hear me now,
Focus on my voice.   Shut your eyes and listen.

You’ve been hit real hard, it almost took you out
But you got back up now there’s a final round
And there’s something you have to remember….

You got one in the chamber
Live wire hot on the C-4
Peeling it out on the pavement
You are, you are the Contender
The taste of drive in your mouth
Raw pain burns every fear out
There’s no room for doubt
You are, you are the Contender

You’ve gone the distance, you’ve come this far
You won’t break, you trained too hard
There’s still a fire burning within you

You got one in the chamber
Live wire hot on the C-4
Peeling it out on the pavement
You are, you are the Contender
The taste of drive in your mouth
Raw pain burns every fear out
There’s no room for doubt
You are, you are the Contender

You are breaking away
You are breaking away
You are breaking away
You are breaking away

You got one in the chamber
Live wire hot on the C-4
Peeling it out on the pavement
You are, you are the Contender
The taste of drive in your mouth
Raw pain burns every fear out
There’s no room for doubt
You are, you are the Contender

Ask

I didn’t want to kiss you goodbye- that was the trouble- I wanted to kiss you good night- and there’s a lot of difference. – Ernest Hemingway

True lovers don’t marry someone they can live with, they marry someone they can’t live without. –Anon.

Ask me the question
I‘ll make no interjection
Phrase it however you would like
I won’t tell you goodnight

I am bent on intention
I have a strong inclination
You may want to know why
I won’t tell you good-bye
It’s a long way home
I think you deserve an explanation
Just place your lips on mine
It’s a sweeter destination

We may need an intervention
This is an open invitation
Take my hand and I can fly
I won’t tell you good-bye
It’s a long way home
I think you deserve an explanation
Just place your lips on mine
It’s a sweeter destination

Ask me the question
You are holding my heart for ransom
Take my hand and I can fly
I won’t tell you good-bye

Suggestion

Don’t settle for a relationship that won’t let you be yourself. – Oprah Winfrey

Pretty pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you’re nothing, You’re fuckin’ perfect to me! -Pink

Satan knows that whatever he can divide he can dominate. –Tony Evans

Starring down the bitter end
Hardly hearing you defend
All the pieces as they fall.

There are rules and there are reasons
Everything has its season
Still I say that it’s your call.

You don’t have to let me down.
There’s still time to turn this around.

Why don’t you just love me whole
Don’t make me choose between my heart and my soul
That’s just a mess we don’t have to own
So let it go
And love me
Whole

I can understand your fear
Right and wrong’s not always clear
When you’re hanging on a wire

It’s not a fight you want to take
But there’s a lot of good at stake, and
It all gets burned in the fire.

There comes a time when peace is wrong.
I need you now.  I need you strong.

Why don’t you just love me whole
Don’t make me choose between my heart and my soul
That’s just a mess we don’t have to own
So let it go
And love me
Whole

Why don’t you just love me whole
Don’t make me choose between my heart and my soul
That’s just a mess we don’t have to own
So let it go
And love me
Whole

My Fair Lady

Well behaved women rarely make history. –Eleanor Roosevelt

The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated. – Eliza Doolittle

When sleeping women wake, mountains move. –Chinese proverb

Loverly, She looking, by the ministers was found
She swallowed whole their golden thread
And with wine washed it down
It strangled her from inside, but she could not be without
Unless along beside it, she lay her own life down
Lay it down, Lay it down
Right along beside it, lay it down
Keep your mouth shut and your head down.
Grind your eyes into a stone.
Work at this direction and you’ll never be alone.
The good life’s what you make it, and what’s good is never fair.
So Fair lady don’t be good just be aware.
Lay it down, lay it down
My Fair lady don’t be good just, lay it down.
Peace is passed, not understanding.  So it goes we all should bend.
But inside the iron maiden, from bleeding out there’s no defense.
All my beauty’s is forsaken.  All my currency is spent.
Leave your life; take this advice from me my friend…..
Lay it down, lay it down
Step aside the iron maiden, lay it down.
Lay it down, lay it down, lay it down, lay it down
My Fair lady leave that thread, lay it down.

Sailing

You can’t save people, you can only love them. – Anaïs Nin

Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we’ll ever do. – Brené Brown

Have patience. God isn’t finished yet. –Phillipians 1:6

I tried to save what couldn’t be saved
A broken ship on the horizon
I sailed out there in my pain
And kept it company while it sank
The sky was blue
The water plain
I couldn’t save what won’t be saved
I know that I can’t walk on water
This vessel keeps me from the deep
I wrestle with the waves and falter
The spirit calms me in my sleep
The sky turns black
It pours out rain
I can’t change what won’t be changed
On and on I go on sailing; Miles and miles I’ve still to go
In the changing of the water
I’m tethered to the ebb and flow
I dive deep into the mystery; But, I come back every time
I don’t understand your reasons; they’re not mine
I see a ship on the horizon
Broken, sinking, desperate fate
It might be lost before I’ve started
Then again it might be saved
The sky turns red
The water gold
Maybe one day, I’ll bring it home

Let Me Be Honest

Be still and know that I am God. -Psalm 46:10

You think you’re in control. Well, I think you’re crazy. – Gnarls Barkley

Love Wins. –Rob Bell

Let me be honest here, I’ve been using you
I make the promise, but no follow through
But I suspect it’s what you always knew
But I suspect it’s what you always knew
And you keep holding on
With a love so strong you may win.

I’m getting lost in your love
Oh, you’re tripping me up.

You keep on chasing this heart of mine
I keep on running; I’m just wasting time.
Always in circles, but the funny thing is
I’m coming around
A love so strong, oh you’re gonna win my heart.

I’m getting lost in your love
Oh, you’re tripping me up.

Hold on tight, don’t let me go.
Hold on tight, don’t let me go.

I’m getting lost in your love
Oh, you’re tripping me up.

Let me be honest here, I’m in love with you

Heart To Hold On To

Why does it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve lost till it’s gone. –Joni Mitchelle

I have a confession to make. I’m your fool. –Foo Fighters

I was drivin’ and he needed a ride
Cause umbrellas, they don’t keep you dry at night
An attraction we couldn’t deny
Left the car the umbrella- well, that was a lie

Sometimes there are flames you should smother
It’s better than burning another
While feeding the spark I left you in the dark
Oh, but you were the heart to hold on to

Quick return it, well that’s what he told you
We met in the back corner booth
First only one drink, turned into a few
Working on night moves, avoiding the real truths

Sometimes there are flames you should smother
It’s better than burning another
While feeding the spark I left you in the dark
Oh, but you were the heart to hold on to

I count every tear that you cried.  And now I know it wasn’t worth the ride…

Sometimes there are flames you should smother
It’s better than burning another
While feeding the spark I left you in the dark
Oh, but you were the heart to hold on to

Long Pour

Without Love. Where would you be now? – Doobie Brothers

I care nothing what God thinks, even less what people think. But because this widow won’t quit badgering me, I’d better do something and see that she gets justice—otherwise I’m going to end up beaten black-and-blue by her pounding. – The unjust Judge, Luke 18:5

The woman came and knelt before Him. “Lord, help me!” she said. He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to their dogs.”

“Yes, Lord,” she said, “but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.”

Then Jesus answered, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour. Matt. 15:25-28

Crazy:  That’s what I’m gonna seem, Just to get you to listen to me
Relentless:  That’s what I’m gonna be, Just to get you to hear to me
I gotta get, your attention
I need an intervention
Gotta have your love and affection
I’m not leaving till I get what I came for
I want a long pour
I need Love
Gotta have Love
Give me your Love, love, love, long pour
I need Love
Gotta have Love
Give me your Love, love, love, long pour
I’ll be the hound dog, if that’s what you wanna call me
And I’ll wait for your crumbs to fall free
I gotta get, your attention
I need an intervention
Gotta have your love and affection
I’m not leaving till I get what I came for
I want a long pour
I need Love
Gotta have Love
Give me your Love, love, love, long pour
I need Love
Gotta have Love
Give me your Love, love, love, long pour

Turn on your light cause you wanna see
And I’m gonna make sure you notice me
And I’m gonna keep you on the edge of your seat
Give me your Love
Give me your Love, love, love, long pour
I need Love
Gotta have Love
Give me your Love, love, love, long pour

Psalm 42

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we’ll see
No I won’t be afraid
Oh, I won’t be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

-Ben E. King

So when at times the mob is swayed
To carry praise or blame too far,
We may choose something like a star
To stay our minds on and be staid.

– Robert Frost

My soul thirsts for you, O God
Tears have been my food day and night
Enemies surround me on all sides
And they say, “Where is your God?”

Hallelujah, come deliver me
Hallelujah, you never leave me
Hallelujah, you’re the sovereign king
And I wait patiently
For you to deliver me
You are my God

My soul longs for you, O living God
I am cast down with a broken heart
All your waves crash over me
As deep cries out to deep

Hallelujah, come deliver me
Hallelujah, you never leave me
Hallelujah, you’re the sovereign king
And I wait patiently
For you to deliver me
You are my God

O my rock, have you forgotten me
A deadly wound in my body
As adversaries taunt me
And they say, “Where is your God?”

Hallelujah, come deliver me
Hallelujah, you never leave me
Hallelujah, you’re the sovereign king
And I wait patiently
For you to deliver me
You are my God
