Lyrics

Forgive
Words and Music by Nate Sabin, Sara Renner, and Rick Barron

A part of you, a part of me
Is frozen in a tragedy
So many words left unsaid
Are still here ringin’ in your head
Let all the demons, that led you here disappear
If you wanna live
Forgive

We walk this world with wounded hearts
Define our faces by our scars
Til pain begins to taste like freedom
And bitterness is who we are
Before the ones who love you here disappear
If you wanna live
Forgive

Let this pain pour out like water thru a sieve
Heal this endless ache and be set free
Sweep the wreckage to the safe side of the street
For you, for me
Forgive

Do you wanna be free
Do you wanna believe
Do you wanna breathe again, live again, love again
(repeat)
Do you wanna be strong
Get up on your feet and walk
Do you wanna rise above the comfort of this curse
If you wanna live
Forgive

Turn Around Time
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Oh
Oh time to turn it around
It’s a turn around time
Oh time to turn it around
It’s a turn around time

Feel it comin’
Yes it’s comin’
Feel it comin’
Yes it’s comin’ now

Now that the time is turning
Oh now that the passion’s burning
Oh now’s when the new beginning begins again

Feel it comin’ comin’ on

Now that we’re all through clappin’
It’s time to make things happen
Now is the time when we can win again

Back to the mountain top
Gonna get back
Back to that special feeling
Back to the place where we call home
Look out world we’re comin’ back

Time to turn it around
It’s a turn around time
Oh time to turn it around
It’s a turn around time

Gonna turn it around
Gonna step right up
An’ we’re comin’ on strong
Gonna cut it clear cut
On the cutting edge
Yeah the feeling is great
When we get back home
Gonna celebrate

Yes it all comes down
To a single stroke
Gonna rock it on out
Cause we’re goin’ for broke
Give it all you got
Gonna climb up higher
Yeah we’re gonna get hot
Cause the sky’s on fire

It’s a time to turn it around
Time again to turn it around
Turn around it’s time we turn
It’s a turn around time

It’s a time to turn it around
Time again to turn it around
Turn around it’s time we turn
It’s a turn around turn around time

Oh baby it’s a turn around time
It’s a turn around time
Now’s your turn
Let your passions burn
It’s a turn around turn around time

That Was Then
Music and Words by Mindy Jostyn

I found a stray dog on the highway
She’s lying by the stairs
Keeping one eye on the door
Like she’s picturing someone who’s not there
On the right kind of summer night
In the right kind of mood
When the heat’s thick as honey
And the crickets sing in and out of tune
I can see you so clearly
Coming over Shadow Hill
I see your hand brush through your hair
I can feel you like a chill
(Chorus)
But that was then and this is now
That was then and this is now
Just one of those mysteies of life
You don’t know why, you don’t know how
Like a river running dry
Like an old forsaken town
Once I looked at you through starry eyes
But that was then, and this is now
(Bridge)
Well, maybe angels hover ’cause
Someone’s watching over me now
Home is a safe place to be
Another life
Another destiny
But in the right kind of twilight
When sundown brings a chill
And the mist starts to rise
Up on top of Shadow Hill
I can still hear you breathing
And I tremble at the sound
So afraid I’ll blow away
And be swallowed by the ground
Chorus
But that was then and this is now
That was then and this is now
Just one of those mysteries of life
You don’t know why, you don’t know how
Like a river running dry
Like an old forsaken town
Once I
looked at you through starry eyes
But that was then and this is now
Like a book of ancient history
That was then and this is me

Guess I’ll Go Back Home This Summer
Music and Words by Willard Robison & Ray Mayer

Guess I’ll go back home this summer
Should’ve gone there long ago
I wonder who I’ll meet when I walk down Main Street
Who’ll yell the first “hello”
Wonder if they still have dances
Upstairs in the Eagles Hall
Those ball games in the park, and walking home at dark
Oh how I miss them all

After we’ve talked of everything
Then I’ll get a restless spell
I’ll walk by the house where he used to live
I hope he married well

Guess I’ll go back home this summer
Leave this daily grind behind
There’s nothing wrong I’m sure, that goin’ home won’t cure
I’ll find my peace of mind

Guess I’ll go back home this summer
What do you intend to do?
I’ve made my plans to go while fares are down so low
Why don’t you go home, too?

Leaving You
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

I left the hills of Sicily behind me
I flew away from you
Across the Mediterranean moon
I closed my eyes and there you were
Deep inside me

But you’re still down there
A speck upon the ocean
And I sit up here
A speck up in the sky
Here in mid air
Lost in the emotion of goodbye

Leaving you
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ll ever do
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ve ever done
And oh God the leaving’s just begun

Minutes ago
I held you in my arms
Just minutes ago
Under the Mediterranean moon
I’ll never know
How I could walk away and leave you

But you’re down there
A speck upon the ocean
And I’m up here
A speck up in the sky
And oh what a pair we are
Lost in the emotion of goodbye

Leaving you
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ll ever do
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ve ever done
And oh God the leaving’s just begun

You’re moving on down there
Smiling through your tears
I fly so far away
And wrestle with my fears

Leaving you
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ll ever do
Is just about the hardest thing
I’ve ever done
And oh God the leaving’s just begun
Oh God the leaving’s just begun
Oh God the leaving…

Tear Down the House
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Hmm yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah (5x)

Once and for all yeah we built it
Built it from a mighty stone
Through heaven ‘n’ hell yeah we built it
We built it to stand the test of time
All of mankind helped us build it
It stood for all the good we’ve known
But something happened along the way
Something happened along the way
Something managed to slip away for good

Now we gotta tear down the house
Better build it back up on a higher ground
Oh yeah tear down the house
Tear it up and start it again
But if we’re gonna tear down the house
We got to love and guard life
Yeah we gotta change this hard life
Before we build again
Before we build again

Tear it up
Huh huh yeah we gotta tear it up
Break it down ‘n’ start it again
Tear it up
Huh huh yeah we gotta rip it up
Break it down ‘n’ start it again

Once and for all yeah we’ll build it build it
Build it for the child in you
Build it for the child in you
Innocent hearts now will build it build it
They’ll build it for all the world to use
For all the world to use
Once in the past those who built it
Did the things they had to do
(With the highest intentions in view)
But something happened along the way
Something happened along the way
Something managed to go astray it’s true

And now we gotta tear down the house
Better build it back up on a higher ground
Oh yeah tear down the house
Tear it up and start it again
If we’re gonna tear down the house
We must respect and guard life
Yeah we gotta change this hard life
Before we build again
Before we build again
Before we build again

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
What have we done in the name of love
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
What have we done in the name of love
What have we borne with the richest of dreams
With the wisest of schemes
That has turned to a travesty
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
What have we done in the name of love

Huh huh we built a tower of corruption
Huh huh for a den of thieves
Huh huh in a house of ill repute
Huh huh yeah it’s hard to believe
Huh huh we built a pillar of injustice
Huh huh on a cornerstone of lies
Huh huh with a bogotified foundation
Huh huh an’ now we can’t believe our eyes

It’s a shanty it’s a shack
It’s a flop house it’s a dump
For a blinkie in the gutter
For a skeezer for a chump
It’s a world of confusion
It’s a city of sin
Yeah it’s a tower of corruption
An’ it’s easy to get in

An’ we built it
We built it
An’ now what have we done in the name of love
We built it
We built it
An’ now what have we done in the name of love

We’re the architect of ruin
The builder of jive
The designer of catastrophe
The last to survive
Fire is our symbol
Our medium is rust
Ashes to ashes
And dust to dust

The word in the streets is ‘demolition’
It’s a wrecking ball party
It’s a holy mission
So flatten it
Flatten it
Level it
Level it
Bring it to the ground
Roll up your sleeves
An’ tear the damned thing down

Yeah tear down the house
Cause the moment it falls
We all will then rise up
Tear down the house
Better build it back up on a higher ground
Oh yeah tear down the house
Cause the moment it falls
We all will then rise up
Tear down the house
Better build it back up on a higher ground
Oh yeah tear down the
Tear down the
Tear down the house!

Prodigal Child
Music by Mindy Jostyn
Lyrics by Mindy Jostyn and Jacob Brackman

I am a weary wanderer, I’ve traveled far and wide
In search of satisfactions I could not find inside
But everywhere I travel, I’m searching in the rain
And every city floods me with emptiness and pain

I left my homeland long ago with pockets full of gold
I squandered my inheritance, I slept out in the cold
Till in my darkest hour, I cried out in despair
Oh, lead me back to my childhood home
Back to my father’s care

And if he will not have me, I’ll go down on bended knee
And ask my generous father if a servant I could be
Though once I was his cherished one
I fear that in my shame
I am no longer privileged to bear our family name

My father sees me coming from far across the field
He runs to hold me in his arms before I reach his hill
I beg for his forgiveness, I don’t deserve his grace
He cries, “I’ve found you, child of mine”
As tears stream down his face

I am a weary wanderer come home at last to stay
My restless soul has found it’s peace
My heart has found it’s way
I failed to win the world, but I’ve gained a greater prize
To know I am a worthy child in my gentle father’s eyes

Moving On
Music & Lyrics by Lew Doty

All there is
And all there ever was
And all that there may be
Is love’s intention
God’s invention
And it keeps on moving on

All I am
And all I ever was
And all that I may be
Is a grander vision
Free in my decision
As I keep on moving on
To be

Everything is moving somewhere
Somewhere it would rather be
As this universe keeps dancing
Moving on forever
Can’t you see

That all you are
And all you ever were
And all that you may be
Is love evolving
God resolving all that ever was
All that there may be
In this eternal now
This creative power
Through this life of ours
Move on in your creation
Be
Just be

Turn Turn Turn
Lyrics adapted by Peter Link
Music by Pete Seeger

To everything
Turn turn turn
There is a season
Turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to be born
A time to move on
A time to sow
A time to reap
A time to despair
A time to heal
A time to laugh
A time to weep

To everything
Turn turn turn
There is a season
Turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to build up
A time to break down
A time to dance
A time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together

To everything
Turn turn turn
There is a season
Turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

There are times of love
And times of hate
Times of war
And times of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing

A time of darkness
A time for light
A time to speak
And a time to be quiet
A time of hope
And a time to let go
A time to grieve
And much time to rejoice

A time of doubt
And a time for prayer
A time of regret
And a time to be tough
A time of envy
And a time to respect
A time to complain
And a time for satisfaction

And when the hardest of these times appear
Rise up seem real transpire
Then it’s time to turn turn turn

To everything
Turn turn turn
There is a season
Turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven

A time to gain
A time to lose
A time to rend
A time to sew

A time of war
A time to create
A time of peace
I swear it’s not too late!

To everything
Turn turn turn
There is a season
Turn turn turn
To everything
Turn turn turn
There is a season
Turn turn turn

Goin’ Home
Words by William Arms Fisher
Music by Antonin Dvorak & Victor Labenske

Goin’ home
Goin’ home
I’m a goin’ home
Quiet like
Some still day
I’m jes’ goin’ home

It’s not far
Jes’ close by
Through an open door
Work all done
Care laid by
Gon’ to fear no more

Mother’s there

Father’s waitin’ too
Lots o’ folk
Gathered there
All the friends i knew

I’m goin’

I’m a goin’ home

Mornin’ star
Lights the way
Res’less dream all done
Shadow’s gone
Break o’ day
Real life just begun

There’s no break
There’s no end
Jes’ a livin’ on
Wide awake
With a smile
Goin’ on and on

Goin’ home
Goin’ home
I’m jes’ goin’ home
It’s not far
Jes’ close by
Through an open door

Goin’ home
[Spoken]
Goin’ home
I’m jes’ goin’ home
