    It's You Again
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    I guess I've always loved you
    So many lifetimes here by my side
    Yet once again we go down this road

    It doesn't always work out
    But in each life you always appear
    And when we meet I know who you are
    Time and time and time again

    And when you walk in and take my heart
    I know it's you once again
    Because the time stops
    As the new love starts
    The way it always has been
    Oh it's you yes it's you again

    I guess I've always known you
    No matter how you change to my eyes
    I know you by this feeling inside
    Time and time and time again

    Who knows how long I've loved you
    I only know you've always been there
    So many lifetimes gone ooo but here we are

    And when you walk in and steal my heart
    I know it's you once again
    Because the time stops
    As the new love starts
    The way it always has been
    Oh it's you yes it's you again

    Hmmmm
    Yes it's you
    Hmmm
    You again

  • Lyrics:

    But For You
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    Had I not lost
    All that I had
    I might have passed you by
    But there are things beyond understanding
    Life-changing moments undefined

    Had we not met
    Had we not laughed
    Had we not spoken words
    Had we not both stood there in silence
    I might have left love far behind

    But as my world turned in your eyes
    I became part of you
    Just for the moment
    You opened your life and let me in
    Then as the world turned once again
    And thousands of miles rushed in
    Standing alone I knew
    I would not chance to love again
    But for you

    Once my heart was broken
    Shattered far beyond repair
    Now I would not take a chance on life
    And love again
    But for you
    I knew you felt
    All that I felt
    Standing there next to me
    Swept away though just for a moment
    It was a time born out of time

    And though I'd left love far behind
    And hopelessly walked away
    Just for a moment
    You opened your life and let me in
    And though the world went rushing on
    With all of the pain I knew
    And knowing that love was through
    I could not chance to love again
    But for you
    But for you
    But for you
    But for you

    God Is Love
    Music by Mindy Jostyn
    Lyrics by Mindy Jostyn and Jacob Brackman

    God is Love
    I've never been to heaven
    I don't know where it's found
    Some say high above the clouds
    Some say all around
    I've never seen the king of kings
    Or stood before his throne
    My mind is full of questions
    But my heart has always known

    [Chorus]
    God is Love
    God is Love
    More than this I cannot know
    Higher than this I cannot go
    God is Love
    God is Love
    If it's all I ever learn in life
    It's all I need to know

    I've had my days of pleasure
    Of feasting and of friends
    But things I used to treasure
    Their charm came to an end
    When summer has departed
    When winter gales descend I remember where my heart is
    I remember once again

    [Chorus]

    May every living thing that breathes
    Find comfort from despair
    In darkest valleys, storm tossed seas
    God is always there
    And She is Love
    God is Love
    More than this we cannot know
    Higher than this we cannot go
    God is Love
    God is Love
    If it's all we ever learn in life
    It's all we need to know

    You Bring Me Joy
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    Bring me your fears
    Your worries and your wonder
    Bring me the long dark arms of shadow
    As they reach across your mind
    Bring to me the lingerings
    Of quiet cares and nightmares
    And I will bear them on my shoulders
    And release them from your mind

    Bring me your tears
    Your troubles and temptations
    Bring me the chance to share your sorrow
    As it hides within your heart
    Bring to me your bewilderings
    Your trials and your frustations
    And I will take them on my shoulders
    And release them from your heart

    Bring me your life
    And I will hold you in my arms
    Until the ghosts and shadows 'round you
    Fall away
    Bring me your life
    Little darlin'
    Like a child brings a broken toy
    And oh my boy
    You bring me joy
    You bring me joy
    You bring me joy
    Joy joy

    Tu mu enu dee du wah
    Tu mu enu dee du wah
    Oh mah baba
    Oh mah baba
    Oh mah baba

    Bring me your dreams
    Your greatest expectations
    Give me a taste of each new passion
    As it rises through your soul
    Bring me your wonderings
    And all your reservations
    And I will point the way to heaven
    And pray the path unfold

    Bring me your life
    And I will always be beside you
    Even though the years will find you
    Far away
    Bring me your life
    Little darlin'
    Like a child brings a broken toy
    And oh my boy
    You bring me joy
    You bring me joy

    Texto de 1 Corintios 13

    Texto y Música por Rafael Grullón

    El amor, el amor
    Es sufrido y sacrificial.
    Quien ama no es capaz de morir;
    Quien siempre ama debe
    Tratar de no herir.
    El amor es benigno
    Y es así porque
    Dios es Amor.

    El amor, el amor
    Nunca piensa sólo para sí.
    Se goza siempre de la verdad
    Perdona y nunca guarda rencor.
    Todo lo cree.
    El amor verdadero
    Es así porque
    Dios es Amor.

    El amor, el amor
    Todo lo cree.

    El amor verdadero
    Es así porque
    Dios es Amor

    ENGLISH TRANSLATION

    Love, love
    Is patient and sacrificing.
    He who loves is not capable of dying;
    He who always loves must
    Try not to hurt.
    Love is kind
    And is thus because
    God is love.

    Love, love
    Never thinks only for itself.
    It always joys in the truth.
    It pardons and never holds resentment.
    It believes all.
    True love
    It is thus because
    God is Love.

    Love, love
    It believes all.

    True love
    Is thus because

    Making Every Moment Count
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    Dear baby brother
    Funny I still call you that now
    But being here and caring for mama
    Like she once cared for us
    Takes me back
    So dear baby brother
    As hard as these times are
    I wake up each day
    With a prayer in my heart
    For a little more time for mama...

    Mama an' me
    Took a walk in the woods last tuesday
    Her eyes lit up
    As we stopped by the old swim hole
    Couldn't believe all the times she remembered
    Once again
    Way back when
    Aaaaahhhhh
    What are these moments worth baby bro'
    I'll tell ya'
    I'll hold these here in my heart
    For the rest of my life
    Mama an' me an' the unexpected love we share
    In these times so rare

    An' we'll keep on
    Laughin' at the simple things we say
    Crying in the joy of life
    Watching as the sun comes up each day
    We'll be making every moment count

    We'll go on
    Dancing with the children in the sun
    Loving as the night rolls on
    Living like tomorrow never comes
    We'll be making every moment count

    We even talked about
    The first time papa kissed her on the mouth
    I never knew she loved him so
    What a special time this is
    Each and every moment lives
    Here among the best of the times of my life

    So we'll keep on
    Laughin' at the simple things we say
    Crying in the joy of life
    Watching as the sun comes up each day
    We'll be making every moment count

    We'll go on
    Dancing with the children in the sun
    Loving as the night rolls on
    Living like tomorrow never comes
    We'll be making every moment count

    Making every moment count
    The times that we have left
    Are a precious few now
    Making every moment count
    I cling to her every breath
    As she withers away
    Making every moment count
    Each of us knowing oh too well
    That the end is near
    But we're still here

    So we'll keep on
    Laughin' at the simple things we say
    Crying in the joy of life
    Watching as the sun comes up each day
    We'll be making every moment count
    We'll go on
    Dancing with the children in the sun
    Loving as the night rolls on
    Living like tomorrow never comes
    We'll be making every moment count

    We'll keep on laughin'
    We'll keep on cryin'
    We'll keep on watchin' as the sun comes up
    We'll go on dancin'
    We'll go on lovin'
    We'll go on livin' like tomorrow never comes
    Yeah we'll be making every moment
    Making every moment
    We'll be making every moment count!!!

    A Walk In The Snow
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    Snow …
    We took a walk in the snow
    And thought about mom
    Like the golden winter leaves on saplings
    Frozen
    Frozen in time in an alabaster forest
    She hung on past her time
    Ah yes, long past her time
    To let go and flutter away

    And we walked in the snow

    She hung on, we thought,
    Because the tender thread
    Between mother and child
    Made the parting so hard to face
    And in the severance of souls
    Her heart could not stand
    The thought of that last embrace

    But she’s gone
    Off on her journey
    To who knows where
    Leaving us here in mid air
    Leaving us here in mid air
    Leaving us hanging out here in mid air
    Yet still with us
    On a walk in the snow
    On a walk in the snow

    Snow …
    We took a walk in the snow
    And talked about mom
    As the ashen sky above hung heavy
    Struggling
    Struggling to find some kind of meaning
    We simply watched the snow
    Falling down from the sky
    And let go
    And sent her on her way

    But we held to the thought
    That she lives in us still
    Beyond memory, but here
    In each step, in each breath, each tear
    We knew the life that is hers
    Is the same life as ours
    And cannot just disappear

    So she’s gone
    Off on her journey
    To who knows where
    Soaring and laughing out there
    Soaring and laughing somewhere
    Soaring and laughing somewhere out there
    Yet still with us
    On a walk in the snow
    On a walk in the snow

    And oh how the snow
    In its soothing adagio
    Rolls gently over my soul

    Yes oh how the snow
    In its soothing adagio
    Rolls gently over my soul

    We took a walk in the snow
    A walk in the snow
    And thought about mom
    Mom

    Angelina
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    Angelina
    Why so distant and cool
    Signorina
    Making me feel a fool

    What could I do
    I was sincere but naive
    She seemed so helpless
    I was a fool to believe

    I confess to my sins
    I admit to my slip
    But I just did not see
    Her come on to me

    Nothing happened
    I can assure you of that
    Signorina
    I only took off my hat

    Angelina I’m yours
    And I’m down on my knees
    Begging you to please, please
    Believe in me

    So c’mon home
    I’ll be waiting
    With a rose on your pillow
    Saying “I love you”
    Hey it’s me
    Angelina
    I’m the one who had vowed
    Always to cherish you

    Baring the things we bared
    Doing the things we dared
    Loving the love we shared
    In that precious space
    There in the afterglow

    Angelina
    Don’t forget now my heart
    You’re my lifeline
    I will not let you go

    Angelina
    It wasn’t what you believed
    I was faithful
    Don’t let your heart break free
    Angelina no
    Don’t tear your heart from me
    Don’t let this lifeline go
    I’m still the one you know
    There in the afterglow

    Angelina
    Darlin’ I love you

    SO IT BEGINS

    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    And so it begins
    Somewhere inside of me
    Hallelujah
    First deep within
    Deep in the hush of me
    Where only I can see

    First it appears
    Here where I never dreamed
    Life would live again
    And all of these years
    You’ve been away from me
    But here we go again

    And so it begins
    It begins
    Again
    This time around
    Maybe the love
    Won’t end
    And so it begins
    And it washes all the pain away
    Never to end
    So it seems
    So it seems

    Like a thief in the night
    I feel it watching me
    It comes to steal again
    An’ it don’t seem right
    Somehow it’s always me
    Who loses in the end

    But love has a way
    Of healing the broken parts
    Hallelujah
    And if I obey
    What’s in my heart of hearts
    Then maybe there’s a way

    And so it begins
    It begins again
    This time around
    Maybe the love
    Won’t end
    And so it begins
    And it washes all the pain away
    Never to end
    So it seems
    So it seems
