Winter Sky

Selected lyrics from songs listed below…

Some day, yeah
We’ll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won’t all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good

Pressure pushing down on me
It’s the terror of knowing
What the world is about
And loves dares you to change

Lord I’ve really been real stressed
Down and out, losin ground
I don’t know where I can go
To let these ghosts out of my skull
Take me to another place
Take me to another land
Make me forget all that hurts me
Let me understand your plan
Now I see the importance of history
Why people be in the mess that they be
I ask you lord why you enlightened me
Without the enlightment of all my folks
He said cuz I set myself on a quest for truth
And he was there to quench my thirst
But I am still thirsty

There’s a song that’s inside of my soul
It’s the one that I’ve tried to write over and over again
I’m awake in the infinite cold
But You sing to me over and over and over again
I pray to be only Yours
I know now you’re my only hope
Sing to me of the plans that You have for me over again

It’s gonna be a good year
Out of the darkness
And into the fire

And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me
Stars when you shine
You know how I feel
Scent of the pine
You know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me

Just a few more weary days and then,
I’ll fly away;
To a land where joy shall never end,
I’ll fly away

Let me ride through the wide open country that I love,
Don’t fence me in.

This is my world,
And I am the World Leader Pretend.
This is my life, and this is my time,
I have been given the freedom to do as I see fit.
It’s high time I razed the walls that I’ve constructed.

Oh, I can’t close my eyes and make it go away
How long…
How long must we sing this song?
And the battle’s just begun
There’s many lost, but tell me who has won
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters torn apart
Wipe the tears from your eyes
Wipe your tears away
