Tracklist

Steady Me

length: 3:40

Sometimes this life of mine
Feels like a tight rope
I'm going slow, watching where I walk
And all this tension
It keeps me on my toes
But if I start to fall

You steady me
When I lose my step
And I start to stumble over the edge
Steady me
And once again
It amazes me how gracefully
You steady me

I can keep my balance
If I don't look down
Focus on the road ahead
When I forget
That I'm heaven bound
Your hand reaches out

To steady me
When I lose my step
And I start to stumble over the edge
Steady me
And once again
It amazes me how gracefully
You steady me

I don't need no safety net
I know You will never let me down

Nothing's Gonna Keep Me From You

length: 4:04
Sometimes life makes me crazy
Can't make sense of what my eyes see
All that I can hold on to
Is Your hold on me

And the only hope I know
Is the love that won't let go

Nothing's gonna keep me from You
All of Your promises tell me it's true
Nothing's gonna keep me from You
No matter what I'm going through
I won't be afraid
I know I'm on my way

Some things are worth waiting for
Many times I have heard it said
All the trials of a lifetime
Can't compare to what lies ahead

And the only hope I know
Is the love that won't let go

Nothing's gonna keep me from You
All of Your promises tell me it's true
Nothing's gonna keep me from You
No matter what I'm going through
I won't be afraid
I know I'm on my way

The Shape of Grace

length: 5:23
He couldn't find the words to describe his thoughts
Couldn't paint a picture to illuminate his heart
But I knew what he had seen
He tried to trace the changes that had taken place
I saw them written all over his face
And I knew what he had seen

In the cup of cooling water
In the clouds of soothing shade
In the arms of love encircling him
He saw the shape of grace

There was a time he'd said that he could never believe
In the kind of mercy he did not need
And he drew himself away
It was a broken heart and an endless thirst
That drove him to the love he did not deserve
And he knew what he had found

In the cup of cooling water
In the clouds of soothing shade
In the arms of love encircling him
He found the shape of grace
(What did he find?)
In the cup of cooling water
In the clouds of soothing shade
In the arms of love encircling him
He found the shape
Of grace

In the cup of cooling water
In the clouds of soothing shade
In the arms of love encircling him
He saw the shape of grace
(What did he find?)
In the cup of cooling water
In the clouds of soothing shade
In the arms of love encircling him
He found the shape
Of grace

Everywhere That You Go

length: 4:31
Everywhere that You go
I will go too
Everywhere Your love goes
I'll be there too
Even when I can't see
Where You're leading me
Everywhere that You go
There I will be

I'll be Your hand, Lord
To the heart in need of a tender touch
And soothe the struggles of the soul

Everywhere that You go
I will go too
Everywhere Your love goes
I'll be there too
Even when I can't see
Where You're leading me
Everywhere that You go
There I will be

I'll be Your voice, Lord
And speak the truth to a troubled mind
And soothe the spirit with Your words

Everywhere that You go
I will go too
Everywhere Your love goes
I'll be there too

Dear Marianne

length: 3:30
Dear Marianne, as a friend and a confidant
I'd like to tell you my thoughts
Sent as a gentle gift, my lips are tentative

Do you remember our talks in the coffee shops
You wanted so much to believe
Then came the day when the light overcame the dark
You were seeing clearly then
Did you really understand

All of these years I have worried and wondered
What's become of you
But all of these years haven't taken my love from you
Try to understand
My dear Marianne

Sometimes I say too much, many times not enough
I'd like to find that fine line
Where He gives us time to grow, room to fall gracefully
Are you really in His hands
Can you tell me Marianne

Cause all of these years I have worried and wondered
What's become of you
But all of these years haven't taken my love from you
Try to understand
My dear Marianne

All of these years I have worried and wondered
What's become of you
But all of these years haven't taken my love from you
Try to understand
My dear Marianne

Feels Like Real Life

length: 3:32
I've been thinking through the past
And remembering the pain
There's a world of difference
Between now and then

Cause Your love is washing over me
I can touch the change inside

It feels like real life
Though sometimes it hurts to face the truth
It feels like real life
Cause I'm growing closer to You

I've been pouring out my heart
So forgiveness fits inside
I've got a world of wounds ahead
But they don't scare me this time

Cause Your love is washing over me
I can touch the change inside

It feels like real life
Though sometimes it hurts to face the truth
It feels like real life
Cause I'm growing closer to You
It feels like real life
I am becoming something new
It feels like real life
Cause I'm growing closer to You

Pouring out my heart, love is washing over me
This is what it's like to finally come alive

It feels like real life

The Door of Heaven

length: 4:12
Remember when we first were led to heaven's door
By the hands of those who showed us something more
Their arms were open with no strings attached
And the words they spoke to us meant so much more
And now our lives
Speak to those behind
What do they see
On the other side

Don't shut the door of heaven
On the ones who would believe
If they could see in us the love
That they've been looking for
Don't shut the door - of heaven

Somewhere in the growing up
Sometimes we grow out of touch
With the tenderness that drew us to the truth
If we close our minds and lock our hearts up tight
There's no room for love in what we do
And now our lives
Speak to those behind
What do they see
On the other side

Don't shut the door of heaven
On the ones who would believe
If they could see in us the love
That they've been looking for
Don't shut the door of heaven

On the ones who would believe
If they could see in us the love
That they've been looking for
Don't shut the door - of heaven

To Keep Love Alive

length: 3:36

I would not be so naive
And still believe this couldn't happen to you and me
I would not risk it all
Just to pretend we couldn't fall so easily
I would not take the chance
And say romance is all we need

To keep love alive
I will give myself unselfishly
Though the hard times are sure to come someday
We won't live a lie and say it will be easy
To keep love alive

I will keep my heart true
For love is what we choose to do, not only what we feel
I will forgive and live as one who knows
How much has been forgiven me
I will not take the chance
And say romance is all we need

To keep love alive
I will give myself unselfishly
Though the hard times are sure to come someday
We won't live a lie and say it will be easy
To keep love alive

I can't imagine ever losing sight
Of me and you
Our hearts are bound so closely
And so easily together now
Together now

To keep love alive
I will give myself unselfishly
Though the hard times are sure to come someday
We won't live a lie and say it will be easy
To keep love alive

To keep love alive
I will give myself unselfishly
Though the hard times are sure to come someday
We won't live a lie and say it will be easy
To keep love alive

Bigger Than Life

length: 3:43
Imagine a love that could stand through time
Imagine a love that would have no pride
Imagine a love that would choose to die
This is a love that is bigger
And then imagine a love that comes back alive
This is a real love, a love that's bigger than life

This is a love that is bigger
It can give the hopeless hope
This is a love that is bigger
It can warm the hardest heart
This is a love that is bigger
It can fill the whole world
Bigger than life

Imagine a love of the purest kind
This is a love that is bigger
Imagine a love that seeks no rights
This is a love that is bigger
Imagine a love that goes the extra mile
This is a love that is bigger
Then imagine a love that stands through time
This is a real love, a love that's bigger than life

This is a love that is bigger
It can give the hopeless hope
This is a love that is bigger
It can warm the hardest heart
This is a love that is bigger
It can fill the whole world
Bigger than life

Leave the Light On

length: 4:49
Watching and waiting
Living on wishful thinking
Maybe you'll come home soon
Hoping and praying
Today your eyes will see
I'm reaching out to you

The sun sinks low
With it goes my heart
My hope for you
Stumbles in the dark

I'll leave the light on
Like I do every night
I may wait a lifetime
It may be tonight
So I'll leave the light on for you

Scatter these shadows
Push back again my fear
I'll let the Spirit speak
Seeing the stars shine
Leading some from far away
You're not beyond their reach

The sun sinks low
But I won't lose heart
My hope for you
Shines through the dark

I'll leave the light on
Like I do every night
I may wait a lifetime
It may be tonight
So I'll leave the light on for you
