I WANT MY LIFE BACK

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK

STUCK IN A RUT – 3x

STUCK IN A RUT
I WOULD BREAK AWAY BUT
I WOULD PROBABLY COME UNRAVELED
NOWHERE TO TURN
SO I CONTINUE TO BURN
DOWN THIS DESOLATE ROAD I TRAVEL
LEAVING IT BEHIND
IN MY PRIME
MAD AT THE SIMPLEST OF THINGS
SCARED OF THE TRUTH THAT LIFE BRINGS
FACING THE FACTS
BACK TO THE WALL
LOSING IT ALL

I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I DON’T CARE WHAT IT TAKES
I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I DON’T CARE HOW IT GOES
GIVE ME THE CHANCE
TO GET BACK IN THE DANCE
TO GET ON WITH THE WORK
TO GET THROUGH THE EXTREMITIES

I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I DON’T CARE HOW I LIVE
JUST GIVE ME MY LIFE BACK
I DON’T CARE WHY I’M HERE
JUST GIVE ME THE TIME
TO SIGN UP TO RESIGN
TO DIVE IN TO BAIL OUT
TO MAKE CHOICES WITH DIGNITY

LAUGHING AT THE ODDEST PLACES
CRYING AT THE STRANGEST TIMES
LOSING TRACK OF LIFE’S GRACES
AND HEADIN’ FOR THE BOTTOM LINE
BUT THE SOUL KNOWS
THERE IS LIFE
THERE IS LIFE (THERE IS LIFE)

LIVING THE DAYS
JUST A DAY AT A TIME
IS NO WAY TO GET ON
WITH THE LIVING
STUCK IN A MAZE
OF SUCH VICIOUS DESIGN
WITH A STEADY DECLINE
OF FORGIVING
HOWLING AT THE MOON
THROUGH A SILENT NIGHT
SLEEP IN HEAVENLY PEACE
SLEEP IN HEAVENLY PEACE
LETTING IT GO
DO AS IT MAY
SLIPPING AWAY

I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I DON’T CARE WHAT IT TAKES
I WANT MY LIFE BACK
IT DON’T MATTER HOW I GET IT
GIVE ME THE CHANCE
TO GET BACK IN THE DANCE
TO GET ON WITH MY DREAMS
TO ENGENDER THE MEMORIES

I WANT MY LIFE BACK
SHOW ME THE WAY TO GET IT
JUST GIVE ME MY LIFE BACK
FEAR IS THE ENEMY
I LOOK TO THE DAY
FEAR IS TAKEN AWAY
I’LL BE SHAKIN’ MY FIST
IN THE FACE OF THIS TRAGEDY

GONNA MAKE WHAT’S LEFT OF IT BETTER
GONNA MAKE WHAT’S LEFT OF IT BETTER
GONNA MAKE WHAT’S LEFT OF IT BETTER

GONNA MAKE WHAT’S LEFT OF IT BETTER
GONNA MAKE WHAT’S LEFT OF IT BETTER
GONNA MAKE WHAT’S LEFT OF IT BETTER

I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I WANT MY LIFE BACK

I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I DON’T CARE WHAT IT TAKES
JUST GIVE ME ONE MORE CHANCE
AND I’LL MAKE IT

I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I DON’T CARE WHAT IT TAKES
JUST GIVE ME ONE MORE CHANCE
AND I’LL MAKE IT

I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I WANT IT I WANT IT
I DON’T CARE WHAT IT TAKES
I WANT IT I WANT IT
JUST GIVE ME ONE MORE CHANCE
I WANT IT I WANT IT
AND I’LL MAKE IT

I WANT MY LIFE BACK!!!

YOU KNOCK ME OFF MY FEET

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

You give it all you got
You make my life complete
You always take your best shot
You knock me off my feet

You took me under wing
You loved and nurtured me
You let my spirit sing
You knock me off my feet

In the way you bear me up
In the way you care for me
In the way you fill my cup
You’re always there
You’re always there for me

You clap me on the back
You rub my shoulders free
You fire up my brain
You knock me off my feet
You knock me off my feet
Proud to take you with me anywhere
Oh yeah

You knock me off my feet
Even in the toughest of times you’re there
Lifting me back up
With the way you care for me
And the way you help me be
All I can be

Yeah even in the toughest
Toughest of times
You’re there

You’re always comin’ through
You’re all I dreamed you’d be
I feel a hallelujah
Rise up inside of me

In the way you let me fly
In the way you set me free
You throw me to the sky
But you’re always there
You’re always there for me

You give it all you got
You make my life complete
You always take your best shot
You knock me off my feet

You knock me off my feet
And set my spirit free
An’ I’m so proud to take you with me anywhere

Oh yeah
You knock me off my feet
Even in the toughest of times you’re there
Lifting me back up
With the way you care for me

And when I go from here
I’ll always carry you with me
You make my life so clear
You give me all I need

The way you’ve treated me
Inspires me to go out
And knock down doors
You set my spirit free
You give it all to me
An’ I feel a hallelujah
Yes I feel a hallelujah

I STAND FOR YOU

I WALK THE ROADS YOU WALKED
WITH EVERY STEP I TAKE
I TRY TO FOLLOW YOU
WITH EVERY MOVE I MAKE

WITH ALL THAT YOU STAND FOR

I STAND FOR YOU

I DEDICATE MY LIFE
TO THE WISDOM THAT YOU TAUGHT
I LIFT YOUR SWORD OF TRUTH
TO THE BATTLES YOU HAVE FOUGHT
I CARRY ON YOUR NAME
SO ALL THE WORLD WILL KNOW
OF THE LIGHT IN YOU
GOD LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE THROUGH
AND WHEN IT ALL IS SAID AND DONE
THOSE WHO’VE KNOWN ME WILL HAVE KNOWN YOU TOO
THIS I HOPE TO DO

LOOKS LIKE IT’S TIME TO GET DRESSED

MY FEET ARE SHOD
WITH THE PREPARATION OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE

GOT MY SHIELD OF FAITH
AND THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
HAND ME DOWN MY HELMET OF SALVATION
AND THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT
THE WHOLE ARMOUR
THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD

AND I’LL STAND
I’LL STAND
FOR YOU!

I THINK ON THESE THINGS

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK

WHEN I CONSIDER THE HEAVENS
THE WORKS OF THY FINGERS
THE MOON AND THE STARS
YOU ORDAINED

WHEN I CONSIDER A CHILD
THE STEPS THAT HE’S TAKING
HIS LIGHT AND HIS JOY
SO INGRAINED

WHEN I THINK OF THE WAY
THAT EACH BREATH COMES UNNOTICED
SUSTAINING THIS DELICATE LIFE

I AM SWEPT OFF MY FEET
IN BREATHLESS WONDER
AT THE MYSTERY OF LIFE

WHEN I CONSIDER THE MUSIC
OF ALL THE GREAT MASTERS
AND KNOW IT WAS YOU
THEY ALL HEARD

AND THE WORKS OF OUR SHAKESPEARES
KING DAVIDS AND KEATS
YOU GAVE THEM EACH
EVERY WORD

WHEN I CONTEMPLATE
THE PURE FABRIC OF NATURE
BEWILDERED BY ALL WE HAVE LEARNED

I AM SWEPT OFF MY FEET
IN BREATHLESS WONDER
AT THE MIRACLE OF LIFE

AND I THINK ON THESE THINGS
AND THE WONDER LIFE BRINGS
FROM THE GREATEST OF THINGS TO THE SMALL
AND THOUGH I SPEND MY LIFE
SEARCHING LIFE’S SOLEMN SECRETS
I KNOW I’LL NEVER KNOW ALL

AS I PONDER THE ATOM
THE BOUNDLESS VAST ETHER
THE BILLIONS OF LIVES
ON THIS STONE

I CONSIDER THE GIFT
OF GOD’S IMAGINATION
AND BEGIN TO EXPLORE
THE UNKNOWN

BUT THIS WHIMSICAL WORLD
IT JUST SLIPS THROUGH MY FINGERS
AS I TRY TO HOLD ON TO THE AIR

AND I’M SWEPT OFF MY FEET
IN BREATHLESS WONDER
AT THE MIRACLE OF LIFE

AND I THINK ON THESE THINGS
YES I THINK ON THESE THINGS
AND THE WONDER LIFE BRINGS

THE LAST TO SURVIVE
FIRE IS OUR SYMBOL
OUR MEDIUM IS RUST

THE WORD IN THE STREETS IS ‘DEMOLITION’
IT’S A WRECKING BALL PARTY
IT’S A HOLY MISSION
SO FLATTEN IT

LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN PRIDE

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK

AFTER THE FALL
HALF OF ME’S GONE
IT ALL JUST SHATTERED
I PICKED UP MY PRIDE
AND CARRIED IT ON
BUT NOTHING MATTERED

I’VE KNOWN A LOT OF LONELY PEOPLE IN MY LIFE
WHO DID THE SAME AS I AND LOST IT ALL
OH IF I ONLY COULD
BUT CHANGE THE COURSE OF MY LIFE
AND CATCH THE FALL
BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE

I’D OPEN EVERYTHING WIDE
I’D SHOW YOU ALL THAT’S INSIDE
CAUSE LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN PRIDE

TRY ME AGAIN
I’M NOT AFRAID
CAUSE TIME CAN DO GREAT THINGS
AND IF IT’S THE END
OF ALL THAT WE’VE MADE
THEN I CAN FACE IT

I’VE SEEN A LOT OF LONELY PEOPLE IN MY LIFE
WHO’VE THROWN IT ALL AWAY TO KEEP THEIR PRIDE
TRYING TO HOLD ON TO THAT LAST REMAINING DIGNITY
BUT STILL IT DIED
WHAT WAS TO HIDE?

I’LL OPEN EVERYTHING WIDE
I’LL SHOW YOU ALL THAT’S INSIDE
CAUSE LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN PRIDE

I’VE SEEN A LOT OF LONELY PEOPLE IN MY LIFE
WHO’VE THROWN IT ALL AWAY TO KEEP THEIR PRIDE
TRYING TO HOLD ON TO THAT LAST REMAINING DIGNITY
BUT STILL IT DIED
WHAT WAS TO HIDE?

I’LL OPEN EVERYTHING WIDE
I’LL SHOW YOU ALL THAT’S INSIDE
CAUSE LOVE RUNS DEEPER THAN PRIDE
THAN PRIDE

Crazy Day

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

I had a crazy day
Lay around
And dreamed the afternoon away
Thought about the way you smile
When I’m in your eyes
I did not think I’d miss you
When we laughed and said goodbye
But to my surprise
Something is gone inside

Crazy day
You took my heart away
Crazy day
You turned the tide

Oh but it all it felt so fine
The dreams and the air
And the sun and the shine
Me and the birds had a damn good time
But the sun set like to give me a sign

Now the colors of blue
And the absence of you
Keep taking me through this change

I had a crazy day
Drifted through the morning
In my disarray
Never knew what I know now
Never saw your face
I knew I’d soon forget you
And you’d vanish into space
But the more I tried
The more you were on my mind

Crazy day
You took my heart away
Crazy day
You turned the tide
You turned the tide
You turned the tide

INDISCREET

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Two shadows in a doorway
Sweet temptation on a Tuesday night
Hot love in a hotel room
In the middle of the afternoon

Nasty rumors gonna haunt me
Secret rendezvous are all we’ve known
Feelin’ so guilty ‘bout the sneakin’ around
And the whispering on the phone

And I’m so tired of livin’ this way

Why must we be so indiscreet
We never face it but the truth is we cheat
The lies we fabricate
Tryin’ to keep our stories straight
Just don’t make sense

It’s just lies lies and more lies
Pounding hearts and hungry eyes
In all honesty
I don’t know what’s become of me
Livin’ like a tramp on the street
Why must we be so indiscreet
So indiscreet
So totally indiscreet

Trash talkin’ all around us
We carry on like there’s no one there
Everybody knows yeah and nobody tells
But the scandal is in the air
And I’m so tired of lovin’ this way

Why must we be so indiscreet
We never face it but the truth is we cheat
The lies we fabricate
Tryin’ to keep our stories straight
Just don’t make sense

It’s just lies lies and more lies
Pounding hearts and hungry eyes
In all honesty
I don’t know what’s become of me
Livin’ like a tramp on the street
Why must we be so indiscreet
So indiscreet
So totally indiscreet

It’s All Right By Me
From the CD, Jenny’s Singles and the movie, Beatstreet

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Now don’t you go cryin’ to mama
When you need a little sympathy
Don’t think twice about comin’ my way
When you need some comfort
Baby take your troubles to me

And stop all this talk about botherin’
You’re never gonna bother me
I got so much invested
An’ I’m ridin’ on you
If you think I won’t care now
Well Babe that’s not the way it will be

So use my shoulder to lean on
Use me any way you please
Use my life and the love in my heart
It will lift you up with ease

It’s all right
It’s all right
It’s all right
It’s all right by me

Ya’ see I got nothin’ to hide
I’ve got nothin’ to keep from you
So come on in
Let the feelin’ begin
You’re safe inside
Babe I’m gonna see you through

So use me when you lose your confidence
Use me when you need a friend
When all seems lost and it looks like the end
Use me when you need a friend

It’s all right
It’s all right
It’s all right
It’s all right by me

MUSIC AND LYRICS

BRING ME YOUR FEARS
YOUR WORRIES AND YOUR WONDER

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 RELEASE THEM FROM YOUR HEART

BRING ME YOUR LIFE

UNTIL THE GHOSTS AND SHADOWS ‘ROUND YOU
FALL AWAY

EVEN STILL

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Even still
In my heart you are
Holding on inside me
Even though this time we’re far apart

Even still
As the clouds roll by
I can feel you with me
I can feel you breathing here inside

After all
After all is said and done
You and I are simply one
Better still we’ve just begun
To make it right
Just begun to see

The light
Moving through it all
Shining here inside me
Lighting up my lonely moments
Calling to you

Still I’m really gonna miss you
While you’re gone
Tryin’ to make it through the lonelies
All night long
Still our love goes on inside me
Burning on
On and on

Make it deeper
Even still
Fill my very soul
Welling up inside me
Pouring into every corner
All through my life

Even still
I’m really gonna miss you
While you’re gone
Tryin’ to make it through the lonelies
All night long
Still our love goes on inside me
Burning on
On and on

SAFE INSIDE THE RAIN

MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK

STANDING IN THE RAIN
NO ONE SEES THE TEARS THAT FALL
SAFE INSIDE THE POURING RAIN
SAFE FROM ALL THE PAIN

HERE INSIDE THE RAIN
NO ONE SEES THE TEARS AT ALL
SAFE INSIDE THIS MASQUERADE
SAFE INSIDE THE RAIN

DON’T LET YOUR LOVE GO WHERE MINE DID
DON’T LET HIM TAKE YOU FOR GRANTED
DON’T EVER DO JUST WHAT I DID
DON’T HIDE YOUR TEARS IN THE RAIN

ISN’T IT JUST A FOOL WHO THINKS
HE’S SAFE INSIDE THE RAIN
SAFE INSIDE THE RAIN

HERE IT COMES AGAIN
PERFECT FOOLS WILL ALWAYS BE
HERE INSIDE THE RAIN IT’S ME
FIGHTING TO BE FREE

DON’T LET YOUR LOVE GO WHERE MINE DID
DON’T LET YOUR FOOLISH HEART BLIND YOU
DON’T HIDE THE TRUTH BEHIND SILENCE
DON’T HIDE YOUR TEARS IN THE RAIN

DON’T LET YOUR LOVE GO UNSPOKEN
DON’T LEAVE THE PASSION BEHIND YOU
DON’T LET YOUR TOUCH BE SO SELDOM
DON’T LET THE MOMENT SLIP BY

DON’T MASK THE ACHE IN THE MADNESS
DON’T LET YOUR LIFE TAKE ITS TOLL
DON’T LET THE HUNGER BE WASTED
IT ISN’T GOOD FOR THE SOUL

DON’T LET YOUR LONGING GROW WEARY
DON’T LET YOUR PATIENCE WEAR THIN
DON’T LET YOUR PRAYERS BECOME TIME WORN
DON’T LOSE THE ESSENCE WITHIN
MAKE HIM AWARE OF THE PAIN
DON’T HIDE YOUR TEARS IN THE RAIN

Who Will Heal The World
Music and Lyrics by: Peter Link
Piano Arrangement by: Margaret Dorn

Well here we are
Now at last together
Here we are
Soldier’s seekers healers are we
What rings us to this mountaintop?
What questions lie upon your tongues?
Tell me all about it
What Questions lie upon your tongues?

Who will heal the world?
Who will save the children?
Who will cleanser the waters of earth?
Who will heal the world?
Who will stir the ashes?
Who will bring the barren land to birth?

Who will rescue the fallen man?
Mend the broken hearted
Build the families
Give back the dignity
That’s now been taken away?

Who will heal the world?
Who will bridge the waters?
Who will break the barriers
Between man?

Now you know the answer lies with God
But the tasks He gives to me

So send me up to the mountaintop
Send me into the valley below
Send me out into the wilderness
Here I am send me
Here am I send me
Here I am

[Key change]

Who will heal the world?
Who will end the famine?
Who is there to multiply the loaves?

Now you know the power lies with God
But the hour belongs to you

So send me up to the mountaintop
Send me into the valley below
Send me out into the wilderness
Here I am send me
Here am I send me
Here I am

Send me into the broken homes
Send me out into the asphalt jungles
Send me deep into the troubled sea
Here I am send me
Here am I send me
Here I am

Send me into intensive care
Send me where the people are dying
There my brothers will be set free
Here I am send me
Here am I send me
Here I am

[Key change]

So send me up to the mountain top
Send me into the valley below
Send me out into the wilderness
Here I am send me
Here am I send me
Here I am

[ Breakdown section- Choir acapella w/Perc]

Send me into the prison yards
Send me into the heart of danger
Send me out into the battleground
Here I am send me
Here Am I send me

Send me into the broken homes
Send me out into the asphalt jungles
Send me deep into the troubled sea
Here I am

Who will heal the world?
Here am I send me
Who will heal the world?
Here am I send me

I am a healer
I’m a seeker
I’m a fire
I am a healer
I’m a seeker
I’m a fire
I am a healer
I’m a seeker
I’m a fire
Here am I send me!!!
