Track Name: Fairytales
Fairytales

Verse 1:

It ain't the
length of life, it's the depth of life, and life
can be a treasure, but only if you invest it right!
Quality over quantity... That's what they
tellin' me constantly, honest, see we

all got a dream right? A nice whip.
And nothin' but green lights cruisin' down the strip.
Bliss, but to some, dreams seem like nothing
more than a thought that unfolds while we sleep tight...

But why you stop dreaming when you woke up?
A dream is a season, for folks like us!
Every day people, with every day pursuits,
it ain't limited to rich men in suits, true!

You wanna know who you are? Well tell me what you're
committed to... and there's your answer, no limit dude.
If you've been given a dream, do as the ballers do...
Lace up, take that shot, and follow through

Chorus:

Every dream that's ever tried to
knock on my door, oh they're safe here
Tell 'em they're safe here
Cause every time they say I should stop dreamin', I tell 'em I won't
Cause I'm not chasin' fairytales

Verse 2:

Before I die, I wanna _______… You
fill in the blank, it ain't rhetorical, ain't no
metaphorical kind of time, the bottom line? To
live without a dream would be horrible! It's

something we can't afford to do, price tag is crazy,
like shoppin' at Gucci, when you should be at Macy's!
I see the blank, gotta fill it with
before I die, I wanna live, don't

live your life through someone else's eyes, and be a Dana
Harvey, you're mastered by disguise, oh lawd…
See I could write with a ball pen for coins, but
then you'd still be missing the "point", my point...

God is not a resource, He's THE source!
He provides every road so we can see the course.
Of course, we gotta take the steps though,
No point in a road being visible if you don't step forward

You can't steer a parked car, you can
try, but promise, you gonna sit there where you are
I'm darin' you to dream… Well very well…
Now go and show the world that dreams ain't fairytales

Chorus:

Every dream that's ever tried to
knock on my door, oh they're safe here
Tell 'em they're safe here
Cause every time they say I should stop dreamin', I tell 'em I won't
Cause I'm not chasin' fairytales
Track Name: Tomorrow (feat. Corbett)
Chorus:

I've been so worried… about tomorrow
I forgot to think about… today
And it seems I'm always going
to all this trouble, just so I can tell myself it's OK

Cause I ain't right, I've been wrong, I ain't perfect
No one else is, so I stay searching
For the reason I've been putting all this work in
And is it working? Is it worth it?


Verse 1:

Why do I always tend, to worry about my life?
What am I gonna drink, and feed myself tonight?
It gets so old diggin' holes, in things I can't
control, like when am I gonna meet my wife?

Where am I gonna be in 5 years? I ain't got a clue,
true, it's rather unclear…
But lack of clarity can be good see.. 'cause
it's preparing me to see where my focus really SHOULD be!

Being present in the present, that's where I'm headed.
How ironic... The future just don't get it.
The uncertain can be a heavy fear, gotta
focus on today 'cause today's already here!


Chorus:

Cause I ain't right, I've been wrong, I ain't perfect
No one else is, so I stay searching
For the reason I've been putting all this work in
And is it working? Is it worth it?


Verse 2:

Why do I always tend, to be the worried type?
Concerned with people's opinion when they see that I'm white, and I
hold a mic. Clearance, I worry about appearance, my body,
Lawwwd that's an incoherent hobby.

My Uncle Bobby told me to soar, don't fear the flight,
but turbulence may occur, it might… I know,
but does worrying add a single minute to my life?
Or an inch to my height? NO!

So what's the point?! Why do I try to find a piece of peace and
joy, in something that I don't appoint?
I don't compose it, I know it, I'm an author of rhyme, a poet,
I'm not the author of time, I don't control it.

That's God's job, so to try to rob God...
3 in 1? That's a mob squad.
I'd rather sit back and see that my chance is
in His hands His canvas man I've been so worried...

Chorus:

I've been so worried… about tomorrow
I forgot to think about… today
And it seems I'm always going
to all this trouble, just so I can tell myself it's OK

Cause I ain't right, I've been wrong, I ain't perfect
No one else is, so I stay searching
For the reason I've been putting all this work in
And is it working? Is it worth it?
Track Name: If I Have To Wait (The Patient Pursuit)
Verse 1:

She walks in beauty,
Beyond a night time display, the array of a starry sky
And her beauty truly comes from
the lady that lives inside

She's set apart from the rest,
Her charm, oooo it's marvelous yes! Yes!
Breath, stolen, she is a treasure
And I just wanna guard the chest and so

Chorus:

If I have to wait, it doesn't matter,
I wanna patiently pursue you
If I have to wait, I know it's worth it,
Cause now that I found you, I'm no longer searchin' and
I wanna chase your heart, and pursue your affection
I wanna know who you are, and fight for your protection
If I have to wait

Verse 2:

I wanna show you security,
and shelter your purity,
I relish your elegance, I honor your modesty
I cherish your honesty,

And it was destined by God that I found you,
but I'm still always nervous around you
And I remember the day that we met
your eyes captivated me I could never forget

I'm dedicated, devoted to knowin' you,
I'm celebrating every moment that we grow in tune..
And I'll admit, I don't know a whole lot about love,
but I know enough to know when it's true and so

Chorus:

If I have to wait, it doesn't matter,
I wanna patiently pursue you
If I have to wait, I know it's worth it,
Cause now that I found you, I'm no longer searchin' and
I wanna chase your heart, and pursue your affection
I wanna know who you are, and fight for your protection
If I have to wait

Verse 3:

I love letters, and so I rub 'em together to form this
form of a letter born with love at the center
And I don't care if you're shy, it doesn't bother me,
We can take it one step at a time, that's how it ought to be

'Cause a true man, he's called to action
and he's fashioned to balance attraction with passion!
So lady I wanna earn your trust, learn what I must,
I'd rather return to dust than to cause you to burn with lust

I wanna surrender my pride, I wanna be noble,
gentle and tender, I wanna remember that a man can cry...
How rich am I?! To walk by your side,
and patiently pursue you, you're the prize so

Chorus:

If I have to wait, it doesn't matter,
I wanna patiently pursue you
If I have to wait, I know it's worth it,
Cause now that I found you, I'm no longer searchin' and
I wanna chase your heart, and pursue your affection
I wanna know who you are, and fight for your protection
If I have to wait
Track Name: Buy Focals (feat. Young Joshua)
Verse 1 (t.Jay):

Can I buy a vowel? Now. Cause I'm forkin' for the fortune, the
wheel is dealin' portions, and it seems so important. But is
this disproportioned and distorted? I see the Lord's
abundance, but I live like there's a shortage! So let me

buy an eye, cause mine been buyin' lies! Seems the
Visine can't clean no eyes that are dry! See I'm the
type of guy, that when my pride is high, HIGH
It's hard for me to admit, I'd rather die inside,

than tell my bro kin, that I'm broken, I can't focus with a motive
so impulsive, does a pulse even live within this poet?
If my eyes are truly lifeless, and out of line with the righteous,
then I find it's time to fight this! 'Cause this ain't what Christ is...

When I live in the shade, or sit in a cave, get sick of the ways, I'm seekin' the rays
It's time that I'm findin' the kind of environment vyin' to tie in that dyin' is gainnnnn...
Hello all, this "The Pre View",
it's time to buy an eye, I'm sick of mine bein' see through!

Chorus:

I'm tryin' to get me that, get me that
I wanna get me that, get me that
I need to get me that, get me that
Say what?! So gone and give me that, give me that (Repeat 1X)

Verse 2 (Young Joshua):

Can I buy a vowel?! Maybe an "I" to capitalize or maybe a
consonant to see through all the crime and capital lies
Makin' me see-sick when I see it, when I scroll and stroll the
cement, it's like a see-saw false full of secrets!

Don't be blinded just like I was blindfolded folded
arms, starry eyed chasin' stars and heart broken...
The constant sequence of events to appease the masses,
I was blind to His Word, it's like He gave me new readin' glasses!

Now I zoom in like a zoom lens, since He moved in,
consumin', improvin' my sight, I'm coolin'!
The wheel turned, couldn't believe it stopped on Bankrupt, but the
hurt drew me to Him, now hands raised like holdin' a bank up!

Say what?! My vision clear, perspective here, my motives changed!
Now every letter I write and hope shall trust and know His name!
In order to C, all that you can B,
X out yourself and trust in Christ who died on that T!

Chorus:

I'm tryin' to get me that, get me that
I wanna get me that, get me that
I need to get me that, get me that
Say what?! So gone and give me that, give me that (Repeat 1X)
Track Name: Money Ain't Everything (feat. Applejaxx)
Chorus:

I've been up, and I've been down, I realized
money ain't everything I've hit up the club,
I've popped champagne, but look into my
eyes you can see I'm in pain OH NO!

And everybody wanna be a baller, but
money don't solve your problems,
'cause I've been up and it don't change,
and now I know that money ain't everything!

Verse 1:

We live in a time where we're defined by the
diamonds we have, the shine and the swag!
Money becomes a god like it's some kind of divine
We strive for the cash, but we blind to the fact that

money ain't everything! There's so much
more than what money can bring! And trust me I've
been up in them shoes I was the dude who pursued wealth...
The riches of the world, and nothin' else!

Then help came, and man I had to change… and not the
money kind, I'm talkin' life change! And in the
right frame, money can have purpose, we sell our
soul for it, but is it really worth it? And man we

purchase, whatever we see.. whatever we
want, whatever we feel we need, but I see
GREED! Seekin' the green. We think that
money will achieve our dreams but see

Chorus:

I've been up, and I've been down, I realized
money ain't everything I've hit up the club,
I've popped champagne, but look into my
eyes you can see I'm in pain OH NO!

And everybody wanna be a baller, but
money don't solve your problems,
'cause I've been up and it don't change,
and now I know that money ain't everything!

Verse 2:

Life has been a grind homie, I'm from the bottom
Homes was so old… that's no remodels
Looked for a place to go, with no asylums
Lost dreams in despair, I couldn't find 'em

My ambition was more than me tryin' to make a stash,
I was aiming for my future, only focused on the past!
Ridin' through Vice City, approached by the Joker
Since I didn't have the chips, tried to gamble with the poker

5 stacks on the line, try to beat all the eyes,
Drop off a drop off, a new whip in the lawn
Or get the cash from my girlfriend
And build a house that could outlast a whirlwind

But I realized, Christ said we gotta
keep our eyes focused 20/20 with the clear eyes
Yeah I'm all about that three five
In Christ I trust because I've been up!

Chorus:

I've been up, and I've been down, I realized
money ain't everything I've hit up the club,
I've popped champagne, but look into my
eyes you can see I'm in pain OH NO!

And everybody wanna be a baller, but
money don't solve your problems,
'cause I've been up and it don't change,
and now I know that money ain't everything!

Verse 3:

It's a foul move, where we put our values, we waste
money everyday 'cause we browse through, oh how
true it is, we all about our profit! We wanna,
fill up our pockets 'til we pop like a bottle rocket!

That's all fine and dandy, all the eye candy,
We don't have enough cash so we try plan B,
We put it on the credit card without a thought
And there's another thing that we don't need but we want

And when I think of money, I think of payin' debts!
'Cause payin' debts was the way of His death! He was
strapped to the wood, 'cause we built up a heavy charge
He paid our bill on the boards, our Lord is off the charts!

Now THAT'S true value, it ain't material,
and it ain't something that you can buy 'cause it's spiritual
and it's a miracle, somebody wasn't stingy…
His name is Christ Jesus! Just to put it simply...

Chorus:

I've been up, and I've been down, I realized
money ain't everything I've hit up the club,
I've popped champagne, but look into my
eyes you can see I'm in pain OH NO!

And everybody wanna be a baller, but
money don't solve your problems,
'cause I've been up and it don't change,
and now I know that money ain't everything!
Track Name: Make It Reign
Verse 1:

I just heard the word on a new forecast,
that nobody has the glory that my Lord has
MAKE IT REIGN! He been reigning for days! And so when
Satan wants to rain on my parade, I tell him hear that

thunder? Ain't no subtle rumble drum in the jungle, it's a
rebuttal to the enemy's wantin' to make us stumble, no
wonder we need a down pour, 'cause the God that I serve is a
renowned Lord… what about yours?!

My Lord, He can weather a storm,
39 whip, 3 nails, sharp wooden thorns!
And now His power towers, devours cowedly cowards,
Love showered on us ever since He rose and restored, and

furthermore, I boast in the Lord I'm proud,
I'll even step outside and tell it straight to the face of the clouds
My Father never fails, He's doin His thing,
He's dropping down on the block, all HAIL the King!

Chorus:

I ain't talkin' bout no small time cloud
I'm talkin' bout a shower that'll make ya wanna bow!
Glory in the form of a storm, and be prepared
Cause He about to let it pour, so Lord make it!

REIGN, REIGN, REIGN, REIGN!
REIGN, REIGN, REIGN, He gon' make it
REIGN, REIGN, REIGN, REIGN!
REIGN, REIGN, REIGN, He gon' make it!


Verse 2:

I don't need no umbrella man, I'm tryin' to
tell 'em fam, that's irrelevant... 'Cause if the
reign is guaranteed then we need to prepare the field, the
harvest is the target when the Son is revealed, ya feel me?

I know the Lord will precipitate, my tummy's hungry
for more reign, He said "finish your plate" and now I
walk with my eyes to the skies instead
'Cause reign drops keep fallin' on my head...

God's wrath paid, the Master craved a cascade
to pave the way for the mass of slaves, and now the
Lord is my banner no wonder, that Thor got
hammered by the true God of thunder!

The Rock 'bout to hit, boulder beam
Don't try to dodge the reign with some lame shoulder lean
So "make it rain" with your riddle games, but like the
crescent of the moon, money disappears, little wane!

Chorus:

I ain't talkin' bout no small time cloud
I'm talkin' bout a shower that'll make ya wanna bow!
Glory in the form of a storm, and be prepared
Cause He about to let it pour, so Lord make it!

REIGN, REIGN, REIGN, REIGN!
REIGN, REIGN, REIGN, He gon' make it
REIGN, REIGN, REIGN, REIGN!
REIGN, REIGN, REIGN, He gon' make it!
Track Name: Lens Crafter (feat. Musixbox)
Chorus:

In the end it's all the same, You're all that will remain
Help us to gaze upon Your beauty
We're the apple of Your eye, in the midst of all we find
Shape the way that we see!

Oooh Oooh
Shape the way that we see
Oooh Oooh
Shape the way that we see

Verse 1:

Yeah, it's the way that it should be, and it's the
way that it would be, if we'd
Let our eyes be shaped, by the One who's
Greater than you and I ever could be!

In this life thing, I'm still a rookie, I'm trying to see
through the eyes of the One who took me!
So Lord craft me, be crafty,
do what You gotta do You ain't gotta ask me

Cause all I'm askin'? A new perception.
Direction, a parvenu perspective.
Yeah, God I'm knocking at Your door,
I request Your never evanescent presence and more

More! I'm floored at the way that You care
for humans who could care less if You're even there!
And so on their behalf, I ask that You would teach,
teach us how to be, teach us how to see cause in the end Lord...

Chorus:

In the end it's all the same, You're all that will remain
Help us to gaze upon Your beauty
We're the apple of Your eye, in the midst of all we find
Shape the way that we see!

Oooh Oooh
Shape the way that we see
Oooh Oooh
Shape the way that we

Verse 2:

Let Your mighty wind blow, somethin new, if my
eyes are the window to my soul? Then I'm a shoe.
I don't wanna be, detached from Your feet
I need to grow, I wanna see what You see

I see fear, You see faith born
I see a hurricane, You see a brainstorm
I see problems, You see potential,
I see misery, You say it's all mental

I see issues, You see ignition
That's another thing that's hard to view with human vision
I see tithing, You see it well spent
I see a homeless man, You see a prince

I see second place, You see something great
I see grief, You see grace
I see so many beauties, but You show me
how the right one is worth the wait and so I say!

Chorus:

In the end it's all the same, You're all that will remain
Help us to gaze upon Your beauty
We're the apple of Your eye, in the midst of all we find
Shape the way that we see!

Oooh Oooh
Shape the way that we see
Oooh Oooh

Verse 3:

Purchased and free, I'm created to be
More than what the world sees
Living in the beauty of Your grace, I'm a
fragrance of Your heavenly Love, it's so amazing!

Eyes haven't seen, ears haven't heard,
Your sweet song, You breathe every word!
I'm reminded of who I am in You
And in the end it's all!

Chorus:

In the end it's all the same, You're all that will remain
Help us to gaze upon Your beauty
We're the apple of Your eye, in the midst of all we find
Shape the way that we see

Track Name: iShadow
Chorus:

There's nothing I can gain,
by trying to live in my own strength
As You reveal what's underneath
Help me stand behind Your feet

And let me live in Your shadow shadow!
I wanna be in Your shadow shadow!
May I remain in Your shadow shadow!
Let me abide in Your shadow oh oh shadow oh!

Verse 1:

To shadow somebody that means to let them stand in front, but
as a human is that really what I want? Uh uh. 'Cause my
tendencies they tend to be wantin' to do me… And
stayin' in my box, where I think I'm on top, and never let nobody in front of my two feet NAH!

Arrogance and pride, they tear and rip my eyes!
They distort my vision of shadowing God… And they make it
seem like He's the one who needs to back down, and He can
stand behind me, He can "play the background..."

But if I live with that mentality, I'm bound to be proud of me, a self-portrait distorted by what I seek, and if I
fan the flame of livin' just to glorify my name, then all that would come out of me is foul and needs to cease
PLEASE LORD! Humble my heart! So when I stand in front of
people, every time I'd rather stand in the dark YES!

And not seek my own personal gain, rather remain
in Your shadow… merciful King
You wrote the book, I'm just another page.
The spotlight is Yours, You can rock the shades

Chorus:

There's nothing I can gain,
by trying to live in my own strength
As You reveal what's underneath
Help me stand behind Your feet

And let me live in Your shadow shadow!
I wanna be in Your shadow shadow!
May I remain in Your shadow shadow!
Let me abide in Your shadow oh oh shadow oh!

Verse 2:

When people see, what should they see?
The One who's greater than I could ever be so!
Let Your will be done, no matter what I say,
and put me in my place, if I get in the way!

Captivate my heart and my soul
Give me the faith to lose all control God!
And surrender it all to You, I'm just a
vessel for You to use!

You can have the spotlight Lord, it's too much for me to bear…
It's a pair of shoes, too big for me to wear
So let me follow You, You're the forefront, I was such a
hollow dude, until I met the Lord's Son, the King of Kings!

Chorus:

There's nothing I can gain,
by trying to live in my own strength
As You reveal what's underneath
Help me stand behind Your feet

And let me live in Your shadow shadow!
I wanna be in Your shadow shadow!
May I remain in Your shadow shadow!
Let me abide in Your shadow oh oh shadow oh!
Track Name: Remember When?
Verse 1:

I remember mom's home cookin', lasagna stuffed shells
cheesecake dessert, I remember so well...
Breakfast in the a.m. I remember the smell
Every morning 7:30 watchin' Saved By The Bell

I remember when my toys were my joy, just a little boy
with a ploy to annoy his older sister,
"Mom! Kristina won't let me change the channel!"
Thinkin' back we was such a handful,

Hands full of grains out the sandbox, she would chase me through
the yard then we'd go and watch The Sandlot, ya better believe
"FOR-RE-VER." was our favorite quote for days, I'm
amazed that we ever moved to any other phrase!

And I can't forget our Sundays, church every week, we would
sneak into the kitchen and find something to eat,
It's amazing how the time goes by, her and I
reminiscing in the kitchen last night sayin'

Chorus:

Do you remember when?
Remember good guys and villians?
When we were innocent little children...
Remember when we was boys and girls without a care in the world?

Do you remember when?
Remember climbin' trees and hiding?
When every single toy was a diamond...
Remember when the clock it ticked so slow? Where did it go?

Verse 2:

I remember all the innocence, way before the world's
ignorance came and fed me vulgar images, all them
intimate instances, incidents of fallin' of my bike,
and mom's kiss was infamous... But then the

innocence it fades right? We get bigger...
We think we know what's best for ourselves, go figure.
"Get the whole world, not a sliver." And while you're at it,
go ahead and wreck your liver, "Mr. One of a Kind"

is who you're supposed to be TEEJ, but when you
lookin' in the mirror, is this who you hope to see?
'Cause see most of me was broken peace all because a
man came and touched me inappropriately!

And after that day, I lived life for me, I was
lookin' out for number 1, ignoring 2 and 3,
but see so it seems that's the way that it goes, I was
walkin' down a road barefeet in the snow

It felt so cold! Man, I'll never forget, that
night up in my dorm room, the weight of regret
reflecting on my past, for forgiveness I prayed,
I said, "God! What happened to them good ol' days?! Do You remember when?!"

Chorus:

Do you remember when?
Remember good guys and villians?
When we were innocent little children...
Remember when we was boys and girls without a care in the world?

Do you remember when?
Remember climbin' trees and hiding?
When every single toy was a diamond...
Remember when the clock it ticked so slow? Where did it go?
Track Name: Don't Let Me Go (feat. CrimsonMuzik)
Intro:

Push my back so I make sure,
You're right behind me as before.
Yesterday, the night before, tomorrow... (Repeat 1X)

Chorus:

Don't you let me go, let me go tonight!
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight!
Don't you let meac go, let me go tonight! (Repeat 1X)

Verse 1 (CrimsonMuzik):

Don't you let me go tonight!
I know you feel it too, but that don't make it right!
Let the door close softly, turn out the lights...
I'm fightin' myself there's a war in mind!

Tell me where this thing headed, I'm ahead
of myself, I know I'm gonna regret it,
but that cup in my hand whisperin' I should forget it...
Just let what happens happen we can keep it on the low.

My heart is cryin' out that my Father's gonna know,
but I'm just so lonely can't let the pain show...
I wanna ask you if you're where I'm at spiritually,
is this poetry in motion? Baby you even hearin' me?

Voice quivering, the deaf could hear the fear in me,
I ain't ready for the road where this lust been steering me
Babe I gotta leave for your sake do you feel me?
The man that I've been acting like lately ain't the real me

Beyond this closed door lies my friendship with the Lord,
and I put that over one night just like I said before!
BUT this cup has a way about it...
Would you respect me if I stayed? I doubt it.

So I'm gonna bounce for the good of us both, and put
my self on the other side of this door when it close...

Chorus:

Don't you let me go, let me go tonight!
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight!
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight! (Repeat 1X)

Verse 2 (t.Jay):

Hey young soul, it's me again...
I'm stoppin' by to remind you
I'm comin' through tonight, we gonna have a good time dude
But what's this news I'm hearing?! Our relationship is endin'?
With all this time that we've been spendin'?!

Yeah the first time we met, was through an e-mail I sent
You opened it and bet, you've been mine ever since!
And see I've known you for 13 years, now that's history!
So how you gonna go and make me history?!

You say I cause you pain, you say that God is better?
Then why you always come to me when lookin' for that pleasure?
I'm your great escape, the addiction you've got
The truth is you're more faithful to me than you are to God!

Don't play yourself boy, I captivate your mind,
So I hope I heard it wrong through the grapevine...
'Cause see I feed of your use of me, even if you're abusing me
So please don't let go, I'm a computer screen
who needs you and me... to be.

Chorus:

Don't you let me go, let me go tonight!
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight!
Don't you let me go, let me go tonight! (Repeat 1X)
Track Name: Far Sighted
Verse 1:

First stop, hop off the tour bus, right up in the
middle of the New York rush, I just wanna get
into the hotel, no more fuss, but
before I went up, I was torn in my gut!

'Cause sittin' right outside the front door was,
a man with a cardboard hut, he was the
type I was typically prone to ignore but, this
time I was torn to explore who he was...

So I went over and said, "What's up?", and right then I
met a man named George Lutz, I asked him how his
day was, he said, "It's poor cause, I've been
out here for four months.. Unemployment got the

best of me, then the world took the rest of me, made
me a test dummy with a pessimistic mind, so I
tried to numb with drugs all the stress I was runnin' from,
fleein' from my past and the mess I left behind."

"I see... You feel like the world has the upper hand.
But please George you gotta understand,
There's one simple answer to your mourning, and it's that
Jesus is sayin' this to you every morning."

Chorus:

When the stars start falling,
I'll be there by your side,
Keep your head up, keep your head up
I won't let you fall

When you wake up feeling
that all hope is leaving
Hold on, I see a better day
On its way

Verse 2:

After a show in Chicago,
one particular person, came up to the
table and we started conversing…
His name was Cory Knight, I dug a little deeper,
tryin' to get the info on the story of his life.

An open book, often overlooked,
Here's another young man coping 'cause he's shook.
At one point, I asked about his parents, it became apparent,
he became transparent and said,

"My pops always said he didn't need me, couldn't afford to feed me,
eventually started beatin' me! Sexually abused me!
Then left when I was 9, and mama left too!
When I was 2! So what's a boy to do?!"

I said, "Look… I do understand, how
you could have anger and resentment. 'Cause it would
seem that your parents mistakes affected your
past and your present… But your future?

That's a different story, it's in God's hands.
He wants to utilize it for His glory!
Cory! Your hope is formed before thee, 'cause your reward is
stored up in the Lord's dormitory. And more see?!

There's more to you and me than meets the eye, 'cause I
too was sexually abused by an older guy, but I
found refuge in a Cross, knowing only
Christ could restore what I'd lost and
He wants the same for you… A better day."

Chorus:

When the stars start falling,
I'll be there by your side,
I know how it feels…
I know how it feels!

When you wake up feeling
that all hope is leaving
Hold on, I see a better day
On its way

Outro:

I know I can change your life, I know I'll make a change
I can see a better day, I know it's on its way (Repeat 1X)
Track Name: Hourglass
Verse 1:

With every hour I, I wanna pass the time...
Make it go by
And it's not your fault, it's only mine…

And don't ask me why, but I believed the lies, again,
again, again, in my selfish pride
Every time that I think I know what's right…. do I know what's right?

I want this desire inside my heart to be guided by patience
And every ounce of me willing to see the joy in the waitin'

Chorus:

As the sand in the hourglass fades,
You get closer with every passing day,
With every grain that falls, I know why they say, that
True love it waits, true love it waits, cause

At times I'm trapped, in this hourglass
But in this hourglass, is where the hours pass
And so until we meet face to face, until that day
I'm ready to wait, I'm ready to wait

Verse 2:

You're no ordinary dream or wish,
You're not just another
And I know that only time will tell,
but I can't help but wonder, wonder

Have I passed you on the street? Have I looked into your eyes?
Are you already a friend? Have I known you my whole life?
Will it be love at first sight? Will I take your hand to hold?
Will I know it when I see you? Will it stir in my soul? Oh, oh!

And one thing I know, is that our love will last...
And I pray for you to have the strength to wait too,
as I promise to wait for you!

Chorus:

As the sand in the hourglass fades,
You get closer with every passing day,
With every grain that falls, I know why they say, that
True love it waits, true love it waits, cause

At times I'm trapped, in this hourglass
But in this hourglass, is where the hours pass
And so until we meet face to face, until that day
I'm ready to wait, I'm ready to wait

(Vamp)

Chorus:

As the sand in the hourglass fades,
You get closer with every passing day,
With every grain that falls, I know why they say, that
True love it waits, true love it waits, cause

At times I'm trapped, in this hourglass
But in this hourglass, is where the hours pass
And so until we meet face to face, until that day
I'm ready to wait, I'm ready to wait
Track Name: Love - Acoustic Remix (feat. Level 3:16) [Bonus Song]
Chris T.:

It don't take much for me to say this,
hands down You're the hottest song up on my playlist
If this was fame, You would make the A-list, and
I would be a red carpet making way for greatness

But this is far more than just a statement, I'm
ejecting what's inside, my love is flowin' out the tape deck
For You to take death and exchange it for Your glory, paves the
way for righteousness and many chapters to my story

Boy! That's too much for me to handle, if I
had a thousand tongues, I couldn't even do the damage
You construct my canvas, purposeful with every stroke You
make, You take my breath away, this LOVE will never vanish!

Candace:

This is Love, that You give to me
And it's more than enough, for my eyes to see
That this Love, is like a shooting star
And it points to You, 'cause that's who You are!

t.Jay:

True Love, it doesn't boast, it carries
hope even though the world sees it as a joke but,
we tryin' to see the script flip, bringin' Love
to a new Level like 3-1-6!

I have faith in this Love, love
tastin' this Love, Seattle swag, this Love reigns from above
And I ain't the same, I changed within, 'cause I was
livin' imprisoned in sin, now I'm forgiven and livin' in Him

In the Father's eyes, I see Love personified,
but in my heart I hide when I'm hard with pride
Christ the martyr died, for the sake of Love,
and His sacrifice, it was great enough!

This is Love, it's a lyrical melody,
no fear in the spiritual eloquence of its eloquency!
It lifts me up when my day's rough,
I got this L-O-V-E, so there's nothin' left to say but...

Candace:

This is Love, that You give to me
And it's more than enough, for my eyes to see
That this Love, is like a shooting star
And it points to You, 'cause that's who You are!

Crystal:

Nothin' like it, words fail to describe it
Immeasurable, no one knows!
How big, how high! How deep, how wide!
It flows for all, perfect forever, no thing is greater than His Love!

Stv G.:

He's so official, loading my heart with His
Love, the poet's pistol. Shootin' that light to the
dark, I know it hit you under the surface, being blood
purchased so you can land right on the Mark...

12:30! Pointing up at
Him like 12:30! The Great I A.M.
12:30! And be prepared, He may
be comin' back at like 12:30....

KB:

This is Love, open doors dinner dates, something fancy
whatever You can do to romance me, this is Love.
Never-ending sentiments of lists that get longer and
longer depending on the day, tell me what is Love?

I hope you hearin' me enlarged hearts perfect pursuit,
never-ending passion, death on a Cross, You resurrected,
I'm feigning for Your unconditional Love, You got me
high like the wings of a dove Lord, I'm so gone...

Candace:

This is Love, that You give to me
And it's more than enough, for my eyes to see
That this Love, is like a shooting star
And it points to You, 'cause that's who You are! !

K Mase:

Never had a Love like this before, oh no!
A Love so strong I couldn't ask for more, no no!
That's the way You Love me, that's the way You Love me
That's the way You Love me, that's the way....
