Goin’ Home – On Heaven and Beyond – A Gospel Cantata

Album

Peter Link

$1.29$15.95

Here is a joyful, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and always musical exploration of the transition from this world to the next.

Though some might speculate that it’s about our passing or our eventual transition, we prefer to think of it as a chance to stop our busy lives and take a musical moment to open our eyes to the timelessness of our future. So it’s really a celebration of eternal life.

HEAVEN

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

I DON’T BELIEVE IN HEAVEN
AS A PLACE UP IN THE SKY
A PLACE WHERE ALL THE ANGELS SIT
AS THE CLOUDS GO PASSIN BY

I DON’T BELIEVE IN HEAVEN
DRESSED IN WHITE AND GOLD
A CITY IN A WORLD UP STAIRS
WHERE ALL OF OUR WINGS UNFOLD
AND A GOD SITS UPON HIS THRONE

I SEE IT MORE AS A STATE OF MIND
SINCE MY BODY GETS LEFT BEHIND
I SEE IT MORE
AS AN OPEN DOOR
TO A LIFE OF ANOTHER KIND

I DON’T BELIEVE IN HEAVEN
AS A PLACE THIS SIDE OF HELL
A PLACE WHERE ALL THE GOOD FOLKS GO
A PLACE WHERE THE SPIRITS DWELL
AN’ OL’ PETER A-RINGS DEM BELLS

I SEE IT MORE AS A HOLY SPACE
A PLACE TO PAUSE A SPIRITUAL BASE
I SEE IT MORE AS AN OPEN DOOR
TO A KIND OF A QUIET GRACE
AND WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE
I THINK THAT HEAVEN
LIKE EARTH
IS WHAT WE MAKE OF IT
IT’S A MOMENT IN THE SUN
IT’S A CLEANSING TIME
IN A STATE OF GRACE
IT’S A PLACE WHERE LAUGHTER REIGNS
OH IT’S HEAVEN
HEAVEN
IT’S HEAVEN
OH IT’S HEAVEN

NOW I BELIEVE IN HEAVEN
AS A PLACE WHERE I BELONG
A STATE OF GRACE A JOYFUL SPACE
A PLACE I CAN SING MY SONG

I’LL BE LIVIN’ HIGH IN THIS STATE OF MIND
FREE FROM THE EARTH
AND THE TIES THAT BIND
I’LL WALK RIGHT THROUGH
THAT OLD OPEN DOOR
TO A LIFE OF ANOTHER KIND

AND WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE
I THINK THAT HEAVEN
LIKE EARTH
IS WHAT WE MAKE OF IT
IT’S A MOMENT IN THE SUN
IT’S A CLEANSING TIME
IN A STATE OF GRACE
IT’S A PLACE WHERE LAUGHTER REIGNS
OH IT’S HEAVEN
HEAVEN
IT’S HEAVEN

OH IT’S HEAVEN
HEAVEN
IT’S HEAVEN

OH IT’S HEAVEN
IT’S HEAVEN
YEAH IT’S HEAVEN
OOOOOOHH
IT’S HEAVEN!

I AIN’T GONNA GRIEVE MY LORD
NO MORE

Traditional New Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Oh you can’t get to Heaven
On roller skates
‘Cause you’ll roll right by
Them pearly gates
Oh you can’t get to Heaven
On roller skates
‘Cause you’ll roll right by
Them’ pearly gates
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more

No an’ don’t try goin’ by rollerblades
Cuz ya’ can’t roll over dem barricades

Oh you can’t get to Heaven
In a skin tight dress
Cuz the curves you got
Mean less and less
Oh you can’t get to Heaven
In a skin tight dress
Cuz the curves you got
Mean’ less and less
I ain’t a-gonna grieve my Lord no more

Oh, you can’t get to Heaven in a fancy suit
Cuz the Lord upstairs don’t give a hoot

But I got a robe
You got a robe
All God’s children got a robe
When I get to Heaven
Gonna put on my robe
I’m gonna shout all over God’s Heaven

Heav’n heav’n
Ev’rybody talkin’ ‘bout Heav’n
Ain’t goin’ there
Heav’n, Heav’n
Gonna shout all over God’s Heaven

Oh you can’t get to Heaven
In yer ol’ man’s car
‘Cause the dang ol’ thang
Won’t go that far
Oh you can’t get to Heaven
In yer ol’ man’s car
‘Cause the dang ol’ thang
It won’t’ go that far
I ain’t a-gonna grieve my Lord no more

An’ you can’t get to Heaven in a limousine
‘cause the Lord don’t sell no gasoline

Jenny & Peter
No’ you can’t get to Heaven with a lot of cash
Cuz it only goes right in the trash

An’ you can’t get to Heaven in a Cadillac
Cuz they’ll laugh ya’ down
And send you back

But I got shoes
You got a shoes
All God’s children got shoes
When I get to Heaven
Gonna put on my shoes
I’m gonna walk all over God’s Heaven

Heav’n Heav’n
Ev’rybody talkin’ ‘bout Heav’n
Ain’t goin’ there
Heav’n, Heav’n
Gonna shout all over God’s Heaven

Oh you can’t get to Heaven
With a mortal sin
Cuz the Lord don’t ‘low
No sneakin’ in

Oh you can’t get to Heaven
With a mortal sin
Cuz the Lord don’t ‘low
No sneakin’ in
I ain’t a-gonna grieve my Lord no more

An’ ya’ cain’t get to Heaven
If ya’ never try
An’ ya’ only start
Jes’ before ya’ die

But if you get to Heaven
Before I do
Jus’ bore a hole
An’ pull me through

I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more
I ain’t gonna grieve my Lord no more
I ain’t a-gonna grieve my Lord no more

That’s right! Don’t be givin’ him no more grief!

I ain’t a-gonna grieve my Lord no more
I ain’t a-gonna grieve my Lord no more
I ain’t a-gonna grieve
My Lord!

THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

I GOT MY EYE ON HEAVEN
I’LL BE GOIN’ SOME DAY
BUT EVERY TIME I TURN AROUND
THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

I’M TRYIN’ TO FIND MY HEAVEN
BUT MUCH TO MY DISMAY
EV’RY TIME I’M HOMEWARD BOUND
THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

I CAN’T GO UNDER
CAN’T GO AROUND
GOT TO CLIMB UP OVER
TO THE HOLY GROUND
AN’ I CAN’T TURN BACK
CAN’T GO ASTRAY
AND THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

IT’S THE AGE OLD STORY
OF HOW WE OVERCOME
TALKIN’ ‘BOUT THE QUEST
FOR FAME AND GLORY
AN’ HOW I GOTTA GET ME SOME

YOU SEE I LOVE THE THINGS
OF THIS EXISTENCE
FAR TOO MUCH
I’VE NO RESISTENCE
AN’ THE ROAD IT STRETCHES
SUCH A DISTANCE
THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY
OH!

YES IT’S!
THE AGE OLD STORY
OF HOW WE OVERCOME
TALKIN’ ‘BOUT THE QUEST
FOR FAME AND GLORY
I THOUGHT I HADDA GET ME SOME

YOU SEE I LOVE THIS WORLD
I LOVE THE ACTION
MUCH TOO MUCH
TO MY DISTRACTION
THAT’S RIGHT!
WE TALKIN’ ‘BOUT SATISFACTION
AN’ THE THIRST WON’T GO AWAY

I GOT MY EYE ON HEAVEN
I’LL BE GOIN’ SOME DAY
BUT EVERY TIME I TURN AROUND
THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

WELL I CAN’T SEE LEAVIN’ THE LIFE I’VE LED
AN’ I CAN’T SEE NOTHIN’ OF THE ROAD AHEAD
AN’ I KNOW THERE’S A-COMIN’
THE JUDGEMENT DAY
BUT THE THIRST WON’T GO AWAY

SO PARDON ALL MY PALPITATION
I CAN’T STAND SUCH ANTICIPATION
GOT A HUNDRED POUNDS OF FRUSTERATION
THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

NOW BY AND BY
WHEN THE MORNING COMES
WHEN THE SAINTS OF GOD ARE GATHERED HOME WE’LL TELL THE
STORY
OF HOW WE’VE OVERCOME
FOR WE’LL UNDERSTAND IT BETTER BY AND BY

Embrace The Rainbow

Music by Peter Link
Lyrics written and Adapted by Peter Link

AT THE LAST TRUMPET
IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE
IN A FLASH
IN A FLASH
IN A FLASH
WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED

OH THAT I COULD TELL THE STORY
OF HOW WE OVERCOME
MIGHT AS WELL TRY TO EMBRACE THE RAINBOW

I Can’t Go Home

Music & Lyrics by Peter Link

And now I can’t go home
No I can’t go home
Got too much to do
So I can’t go home

There’s a song in sight
And there’s all this light
Beckoning me still
No I can’t go home

There’s a reason
I am standing here today
In my skin
I’ve not honored
Nearly all I could have been
Still I am tryin’ to find
Tryin’ to find peace of mind

So I just can’t go home
No I can’t go home
Close that open door
I just can’t go home

Let the watch fires burn
Leave no stone unturned
Till I find my stillness
I just can’t go home

On this passage
Through this strange uncharted land
I have come
To the mountain
Back to where I started from
Living from year to year
Wondering why I’m here

And still I can’t go home
No I can’t go home
There’s far to much untold
In this world unknown

Till I’m satisfied
It’s a wondrous ride
Far too far to go
Till I go back home
Till the seed is sown
Till the truth be known
I just can’t go home

WE FIX IT

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

I DON’T BELIEVE THAT WHEN WE DIE
ALL THINGS WILL BE FORGIVEN
I THINK FORGIVENESS COMES
WHEN WE FIX IT
WHEN WE FIX IT

I DO BELIEVE THAT WHEN WE DIE
WE TAKE OUR TROUBLES WITH US
THE BAD GOES WITH THE GOOD
AND THEN WE FIX IT UH HUH
THEN WE FIX IT

OLD BAD HABITS
DOIN’ SOMEBODY WRONG
GOIN’ UP PLACES
THAT YA’ DON’T BELONG
CHEATIN’ AN’ STEALIN’
AN’ PUTTIN’ ON AIRS
GIVIN’ NO HEED
TO YER PAST AFFAIRS

ALL FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY
ALL FOR THE LOVE OF SIN
AND IF YOU KEEP ON DOIN’ IT
THEN YOU CAN’T GET IN
YES IF YA’ KEEP ON DOIN’ IT
NO YOU CAN’T GET IN
SO BEFORE WE GET TO HEAVEN
WE FIX IT

So before we get to heaven
We fix it

I DON’T BELIEVE THAT WHEN WE LIVE
WE’RE FREE TO DO WHATEVER
FOR EVERY BROKEN HEART
WELL WE FIX IT

I DON’T BELIEVE THAT HEAVEN MEANS
A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE LIVING
AS EACH MISTAKE IS MADE
YA’ KNOW WE FIX IT

SHOWIN’ NO MERCY
TO THE TENDER FEW
HOLDING HATRED INSIDE OF YOU
GREED IS MASTER
BETTER WATCH YO’ BACK
CUZ IT GETS YOU NOTHIN’ BUT A HEART ATTACK

ALL FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY
ALL FOR THE LOVE OF SIN
AND IF YOU KEEP ON DOIN’ IT
THEN YOU CAN’T GET IN
YES IF YA’ KEEP ON DOIN’ IT
NO YOU CAN’T GET IN
SO BEFORE WE GET TO HEAVEN
WE FIX IT

SO BEFORE YA’ GET TO HEAVEN
JUST FIX IT

WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK

I’LL ALWAYS MISS WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
AND ALL THE THINGS THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
WHEN I AM GONE FROM HERE
IF LOOKING BACK UPON THIS LIFE
IS POSSIBLE BEYOND THIS LIFE
THE ONE THING THAT I FEAR
IS MISSING YOU
AND MISSING US
AND ALL THE JOYS GONE UP IN SMOKE
YES THE ONE THING THAT I FEAR
IS MISSING ALL THE YEARS AHEAD

AND ALL THE THINGS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN
WHEN THINGS COME TO AN END

I’VE NO REGRETS OF DAYS GONE BY
I’VE LET LIVE THE LIFE I’VE LED
MY ONE REGRET IS MISSING YOU
AND THE THINGS THAT LIE AHEAD
ANOTHER NIGHT SLEEPING NEXT TO YOU
YOUR CROOKED SMILE AND YES YOUR TEARS
THE PRIMATIVE AND COMPLEX OF YOU
THE CAVITY AND CONVEX OF YOU
I’VE LOVED SO ALL THESE YEARS

WHEN I AM GONE AND BROOD UPON
WHAT FEW MEN COMPREHEND
I’LL QUESTION THEN WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN
AND JUST WHY IT HAD TO END

Come To Me As A Bird
Words and Music By Julie Gold

Come to me as a bird.
I will know it’s you
As you hover above the life we once knew.
Though I can’t hold you now
I remain undeterred,
And I’ll know you if you
Come to me as a bird.

Come to me as a bird,
Dancing in the trees.
When the last leaves of summer cast themselves to the breeze.
Now the season has changed.
Now the memory’s blurred
But I’ll know you if you
Come to me as a bird.

Come to me as a bird.
Come to me as a bird.
I will know you if you
Come to me as a bird.

Singing in my garden.
Winging through the rain.
I can tell you’re out there,
Staring through my pane.

Come to me as a bird,
Keeper of the sky.
How I long to go with you when I see you fly.
Once I gave you my heart,
Now I give you my word
I will know you if you
Come to me as a bird.

Come to me as a bird.
Come to me as a bird.
I will know you if you
Come to me as a bird.

Come to me as a bird.
Come to me as a bird.
I will know you if you
Come to me as a bird.

Come to me as a bird.
