Lyrics

1. COLOR BLIND

Can we meet in the middle, for a moment please
I don't want to be guilty of spreading this disease
Only a second or a minute of your time
Will be long enough to give you a piece of my mind
No more separation
No more segregation
You say that I'm your brother
I say that you are mine
But the difference in our
Colors many times is what
Comes between us
I really wouldn't mind if we were color blind
Tell me are you listening,
Is it getting through
Love's what we're missing
And it comes from me and you
We're all flesh and blood
Trying to survive
But if we don't lose the hate,
We're Committing suicide

[Pre-chorus]

[Chorus]




2. SECOND CHANCE

If you're leaving, if you're going away
There's just one thing that I've got to say
All the things I put you through, and everything I said to You
I realize, may lead to our demise
Many times the foolish pride in me
Was the very thing that hurt you, the knife that made you Bleed
Now I stand the chance of losing you and it's tearing my Heart in two
It ain't worth the price, of losing you twice
Baby if you give a second chance
I will give you true romance
And everything you thought this love was gonna be
No excuses no more lies
We deserve another try
Tell me honey, are you giving me a second chance
Remember not so long ago
When I loved you more than you'll ever know
But through the years that faded and I became so jaded
And deep inside my cares for you would hide
Many times the foolish pride in me
Was the very thing that hurt you, the knife that made you Bleed
Now I stand the chance of losing you, and it's tearing my Heart in two
It ain't worth the price, of losing you twice

[Chorus]




3. TICKET TO FREEDOM

Pack your bags we're going away
Maybe tomorrow, maybe today
Get yourself together, I'll be coming for you
I Know a place that's one of a kind
It's far away, but easy to find
I've paid in advance, there's just one thing you've gotta Do
Go to the station and tell 'em
You're putting your faith in me
Tell 'em that you've opened your heart
And say you believe, then you'll get what you need
And if you want it, you gotta take it
'Cause without it you'll never make it
Better hurry soon we'll be leaving
Get your one way ticket to freedom
I've been working every day
Building a house where I want you to stay
Blood, sweat and tears have gone into every frame
High on a hill so far away
The deed's in your name and the mortgage is paid
Paid in advance, there's just one thing that you've gotta Claim

[Pre-chorus]

[Chorus]

Nothing comes easily
Nothing in life is free
But I'll give you everything
If you'll love me unconditionally

[Chorus]




4. THE RIVER

If you're hurting, I'll take your pain
If your life is dry and weary, I'll bring the rain
If you're searching, then search no more
If you're drifting on an ocean, I'll be the shore
I see the scars that you hide
I've kept the tears that you've cried, they were not in Vain
And every prayer that you've prayed
I have treasured and saved, my love will never change
If you're looking for the river
That runs with healing water
Bring yourself to me
And I will wash you in an endless peace
I'm your Saviour,
And I'll save you tonight
If you're blinded by the darkness, I'll be the light
If you're hopeless, I'll be your faith
If you're lost, I'll lead the way

[Chorus]




5. ALWAYS THERE FOR YOU

Love can be so cold
And loneliness gets old
More than words or broken promises
I want to show you what true love is
I'm always there for you
And I'll always stand by you
When the world has closed the door, and you can't go on Anymore
I'm always there for you
You've been hurt before
And you don't want anymore
There's a better way for you
Believe in me, I'll see you through

[Chorus]




6. REAL

I've walked on water
And I've turned the rivers red
I've touched a child who died
And raised her from her dying bed
I've sacrificed myself
For you My blood was shed
And I am so much more
Than simple words within the creed that you've read
I'm real, I'm alive, I'm not a reverie
I want to be real to you
I've calmed the winds and waves
I've opened up the sea
I've wandered forty days and nights
Without a single thing to eat
I've taken beatings
And upon a tree I've bled
Yet I am so much more
Than simple lines within the creed that you read
I'm real, I'm alive, I'm not a reverie
I want to be real to you
You don't have to hide in shame from me
I just want to set you free

[Chorus]




7. BABY DOLL

Just like God gave Adam Eve, God gave you to me
And when I got you honey, I got love
My knees get weak and I just can't speak when I see you
Walk my way
And I know I'm getting tomorrow, what you gave to me today
You gotta love me 'till the sun comes up,
And 'till the sun goes down
Take me so high that my feet never touch the ground
Love me in the winter, spring, summer and fall
Love me baby, love me
Baby doll
Other guys may stare at you but honey that's okay
'Cause I'm the one that's holding you every night and day
With your big blue eyes and your ruby lips,
They knock me off my feet
No I never need any sugar,
'Cause you always make it sweet,
you gotta

[Chorus]




8. WHY

Sent like an angel from heaven above
Enrapturing me with your love
When we embraced, undeniably
You were the one for me
The first time that I saw you smile
It felt like a summer breeze
I'll say without any denial
You've captured my heart unquestionably
That's why I'll love you with all of my life
And why I'll cherish your love day and night,
Forevermore
When we first met, my only regrets
Were all of the years without you
I'll always remember, no I'll never forget
I looked in your eyes and knew
That we'd spend forever together
And we'd build each other's dreams
I knew we would always endeavor
To live every day passionately

[Chorus]

When I count my blessings
I count you twice, for making me realize
That I won't be guessing
Baby, spending my whole life with you




9. REMEMBER ME

In a time where promises are empty, and love is fleeting
Everyone is searching for a chance, a better way
When you look to Heaven do you see a place that's waiting
And do you look to me as the one who will take you away
All I desire, is all that you need
Truth and a chance to be free
All that I ask, is that you would try and
Remember me
I'm more than a memory
I'll come for you
Like a thief in the night
If you get yourself right and remember me
From the mourning of the start in time,
I've known your face
And I have always held my love for you in the highest place

[Pre-chorus]

[Chorus]




10. HEAVEN WAITS FOR YOU

A baby's born today and somewhere else
Somebody's time has passed away
You never really think of what it means
Until the circle comes your way
One day you gain, the next day you lose
It's just something we must go through
We all feel pain, we'll get through the rain
If we reach out and choose
The good within the bad, the joy within the sadness
If we only had a world without the madness
I'd call it Heaven too, Heaven waits for you
I never knew the true meaning of life
Until my little boy was born
What happened was a miracle
That changed my life that February morn
One day I'll see, the man he will be
And I pray that he makes it through
All of the pain, he'll get through the rain
If he learns to reach out and choose

[Chorus]
