Scattershot Symphony – The Music of Peter Link
A Podcast


Episode #14 – Get Back Up!

Listen to this episode here


View these Previews of Episode #14 here

We’ve all experienced the tougher side of life these last couple of years …

… And we’ve all, on some level or another, been knocked around by it, whether it be political, pandem-ical, finan-cical, roman-tical, or whatever.  It’s about time we get back up from this unfortunate time.

So, in this Episode 14 of Scattershot Symphony we offer a kind of Musical Guide to Recovery.

It’s not exactly a twelve step process (actually, it comes at’cha in fewer steps) but it is a process of regeneration through the application of music to our brains and souls. And if you’re one of the more fortunate ones that has gone through these last couple of years unscathed, you can still take the course and simply enjoy the the music and the fabulous performances of Julia Wade, Jenny Burton and The Jenny Burton Experience.

Guaranteed to put a little bounce back into your step!

  • Lyrics:

    Lift Up Your Eyes
    Music by Peter Link
    Words from Isaiah 42, 43, 65 adapted by Peter Link

    Let all the nations gather now
    Let all the people come
    The time won't stop for those who wait
    The moment has begun

    Take all your ill-begotten gain
    And give it all away
    Take all remembrance of your pain
    And let it slip away

    And behold
    All the former things are passed away
    In the twinkling of an eye
    And behold
    Now's the time to start anew
    Hallelujah behold
    Yes behold
    Let the former things be cast away
    And turn your gaze aside

    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high

    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    God is gonna wipe all the tears
    From your eyes

    [Interlude]

    Remember not the former things
    Neither the things of old
    Let go the sorrow from your heart
    And let your life unfold

    And behold
    I will even make a way for you
    As you journey through this world
    Yes behold
    Through the desert rivers run
    Holy waters behold
    Behold
    This new world has its place for you
    Just let the past go by

    [No interlude]

    And lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high

    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high

    [2 bar interlude]

    And see the glory of the coming of the lord
    And behold God will make a way for you
    And see the glory of the coming of the lord
    Yes behold God will come
    And see the glory of the coming of the lord

    For you
    I will make a brand new earth for you
    For you for you in the springtime
    Of your life
    For you
    I will remake heaven too
    All i have i give to you
    For you
    I will create all things new for you
    If only you

    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes on high
    Lift up your eyes
    On high

    [2 bar interlude]

    Let all the nations come
    You are the chosen one
    Wipe all the tears away
    Now is the judgment day
    I will make
    I will make all things new
    All things new
    I have a place for you
    Let the past
    Just let the past go by
    Go by
    And lift up your eyes
    On high!

    End rap:
    Yes, behold I will come
    Like a chariot in a whirlwind
    Like thunder on the mountain
    Like the holy waters of the rivers running down
    Through the wilderness of your lives

    I will come in the clouds, in the bushes, in the brambles
    In the back streets burnin' through the heavens
    As I crack the sky

    I will come to the ghettos and slums
    Of the inner city tenements
    To the bone dry drought of the dust bowl
    To the coal mines
    To the battlefields
    To the foxhole
    To the lost souls

    If only you will lift up...

    Choir:
    Lift up your eyes

    Don't it drive you crazy
    Don't you feel like cryin'
    Don't it get you flyin'
    Can't you feel the spirit

    Don't it feel good
    Take a little more it makes you feel better
    Don't it feel real good
    Down in your body an' deep in your soul

    Rushin' like a river
    Don't ya' feel those good vibrations

    Racin' through yer body
    Pourin' through yer system
    Girl you can't resist 'em
    Sweepin' over you 'n'

    Don't it feel good

    On Broken Pieces
    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    Once life was a holiday
    Once the world was mine
    Once everything went my way
    Once upon a time

    Then nothing was good enough
    When I had it all
    Stuffed full of this empty stuff
    I began the fall

    When all of it shattered
    I searched through the ruins of my life
    Though broken and battered
    At last I found a way (I found myself a way)

    Now I can make it
    I can make it through this long night of fire
    Only with you in my life

    If there's a mountain to climb
    If there's a river to cross
    I'll make it
    On broken pieces

    If danger is near
    If there are trials ahead
    I'll make it
    On broken pieces

    I'll do as you will
    Lord I'll follow your lead
    I pray that these hard times are over
    Risin' up through the ashes Lord
    I'll be holdin' on to you

    I'm gonna make it
    If I have to make it
    On broken pieces

    I'm gonna make it
    If I have to make it
    On broken...
    Broken...
    Broken pieces

    When all of it shattered
    I knelt before God with my life
    For all that it mattered
    I threw the past away
    I threw it all away

    Now I can make it
    I can make it through this long night of fire
    Only with you in my life

    If there's a mountain to climb
    If there's a river to cross
    I'll make it
    On broken pieces

    With you in my life
    I got a friend at my side
    I'll make it
    On broken pieces

    I'll rest in your arms
    Lord I'll gather my strength
    The power of healing rolls over me
    Risin' up through the ashes Lord
    I'll be holding on to you

    I'm gonna make it
    If I have to make it
    On broken pieces

    I can make it
    I can make it
    I can make it on broken pieces
    Lord right now...

    I can make it
    I can make it
    I can make it on broken pieces
    Lord right now...

    I can make it
    I can make it
    If there's a mountain to climb
    A river to cross
    I'll follow your lead
    Whatever the cost
    I'll make it
    I can make it on broken pieces
    Lord right now...

    I can make it
    I can make it
    If there's a battle to fight
    A war to be won
    A glory to gain
    A race to be run
    I'll make it
    I can make it on broken pieces
    Lord right now...

    I'm gonna make it
    If I have to make it
    On broken pieces
    Oh oh yeah

    WINGS OF MUSIC

    Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

    I will not build me wings
    Of wax and feathers
    I will not fly the daylight
    In the heat of the sun
    I need not design
    A special chariot to the stars
    For I can ride the wings of music

    Yes I can ride the wings of music
    And I can soar on a melody
    And every time I fall
    Oh how it picks me up again
    It lifts me up and sets me free

    Melody, carry me over the trees
    Harmony, sustain me out across the seas
    Dance out your rhythm
    Oh so light on your feet
    Spread your wings and find us a breeze

    Then I will ride the wings of music
    Straight up to the stars
    As God awakens in me
    And pours from my heart
    Strain upon refrain

    Sounding and sustaining,
    Pounding and proclaiming
    Almighty, let me soar and fly
    Music, music open up the sky

    [Interlude]

    For I can ride the wings of music
    And I can soar on a melody
    And every time I fall
    Oh how He picks me up again
    He lifts me up and sets me free

    It’s God that strikes the strings
    And as I ride the wings
    He lifts and lets me soar
    Soar and fly
    Fly!

    How I love to ride the wings
    The wings
    Of music
