2. Shadows of the Dawn

A world away and still not far
Like fabric woven into ours
The dawn, it shot out through the night
And day is coming soon

The kingdom of the morning star
Can pierce a cold and stony heart
It’s grace went through me like a sword
And came out like a song
Now I’m just waiting for the day
In the shadows of the dawn 

But I won’t wait, resting my bones
I’ll take these foolishness roads of grace
And run toward the dawn
And when I rise and dawn turns to day
I’ll shine as bright as the sun
And these roads that I’ve run, will be wise

It’s veiled and stands behind the shroud
The final day when trumpets sound
Sometimes I glimpse into the fog
And listen for the song
Til then I’m waiting for the day
In the shadows of the dawn

But I won’t wait, resting my bones
I’ll take these foolishness roads of grace
And run toward the dawn
And when I rise and dawn turns to day
I’ll shine as bright as the sun
And these roads that I’ve run

No I won’t wait, resting my bones
I’ll take these foolishness roads of grace
And run toward the dawn
And when I rise and dawn turns to day
I’ll shine as bright as the sun
And these roads that I’ve run, will be wise

 

3. Ghost of a King

Met a ghost of a king on the road
When I first felt fire burn’n
To my knees to my knees I fell
Met a ghost of a king on the road
Words of fire
He said you are a lonely soul
With a heart of stone
That rakes against your thirsty bones
Such a lonely soul
Said I can show you what can save you
But we need to go

Where no chariot can take you
Where the river meets the sand
There is water there
That can quench your thirsty bones
And make you well 

So I followed the ghost of a king
With every step I tried to see beyond
For a trace of the riverside
But restlessness was my prize
And then we came upon a golden shore
But the voice of fire
Wasn’t coming from a ghost no more
My heart of stone came alive
When my eyes were opened up
And I saw that I had come 

Where no chariot can take you
Where the river meets the sand
There is water there
That can quench your thirsty bones
And make you well 

So I knelt beside the river
And I drank until I drank until I drank until I died
But something in the water
Must have brought me back it brought me back
It brought me back to life

Where no chariot can take you
Where the river meets the sand
There is water there
That can quench your thirsty bones
And make you well

 

4. Band of Gold

I told you I was on your side
I told you I would never hide
So you can put your hand in mine
Cuz I’ll be keep’n by your side
I’ll love you til the stars turn cold
And I’ll love you like this ring I hold
Yes around and round it goes
A circle never knows the end of the line
And so you will find with our love

Cuz this love is a band of gold
When the fire’s burn’n and
When the embers feel cold
So when I hold you in my arms
I hope you know
That this love is a band of gold

I’m never get’n over you
No I never will be over you
Yes I threw away the key
That bound my heart to yours
To the bottom of the sea
I don’t need it anymore
No there’s no turn’n back for us
There’s only movin' forward

Cuz this love is a band of gold
When the fire’s burn’n and
When the embers feel cold
So when I hold you in my arms
I hope you know
That this love is a band of gold

And the storms that come and cover up the moon
They may steal away the starry skies we knew
But they can’t take away can’t take away what’s true
I belong, I still belong, I belong to you

This love is a band of gold
When the fire’s burn’n and
When the embers feel cold
So when I hold you in my arms
I hope you know
That this love is a band of gold

5. Take This Slowly

If I took all that I got
And spread it out on this table
It might not seem like alot
A once glimmering joy
Slowly fading from view
All the change in my pockets, not enough
And this picture of you
Still I’ve heard all that I have
In the moment is hardly a sign
Of everything coming my way
I believe when I need it, it will be mine

So let’s take this slowly
All I need is coming
But it’s just beyond what I can see
So if my eyes press forward in fierce alarm
Just turn my head back to see
To see how we got this far
And I’ll be alright 

I’m not asking for mountains of riches
No silver or gold
Don’t need fame or fancier things
I can’t take when I go
I’m just asking for grace
Grace to carry on
Grace to take joy at my place at the table
And the rock that it’s standing on
Still I’ve heard all that I have
In the moment is hardly a sign
Of everything coming my way
I believe when I need it, it will be mine

So let’s take this slowly
All I need is coming
But it’s just beyond what I can see
So if my eyes press forward in fierce alarm
Just turn my head back to see
To see how we got this far
And I’ll be alright 

And even when I’m broke down
Even when what I’ve got now
Is falling faster down beneath the cracks
And I don’t know when it’s coming back around
Even then I’ll be calling out louder
Loud enough to wake ’em up
Believing I believe I will see it done
I believe what I will hold
What I hold will be enough
Will be enough

So let’s take this slowly
All I need is coming
But it’s just beyond what I can see
So if my eyes press forward in fierce alarm
Just turn my head back to see
To see how we got, got this far
And I’ll be alright
It’s gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright 

 

6. Diamonds and Gold

Well our souls had desire
Then a fire that we finally found
Yeah in darkness and cold
If you hold it it’ll never go out
Then we stumbled on some treasure
And started diggin' underground, whoa
When we laid down the flame
We didn’t notice when the fire went out
And now we’re going down

We started started with soul
Now we’re chasin' diamonds and gold
Let’s throw ’em into the night
They’ll say we’re crazy that’s fine
They’ll say we’re out of our minds
Well tell ’em tell ’em alright
If the world is all
We got then alright alright but it’s not
Do what you want
Just remember diamonds and gold
And soul, they fight

It was dark it was cold
Having gold couldn’t stop the night
It turns out treasure only shimmers and glimmers
When it’s under a fire
So we tried to relight and find a way to ignite it Nothing satisfied it til we let it all go to the floor And with the gold on the ground
We heard the beautiful sound
Of the spark and the flame and the roar

We started started with soul
Now we’re chasin' diamonds and gold
Let’s throw ’em into the night
They’ll say we’re crazy that’s fine
They’ll say we’re out of our minds
Well tell ’em tell ’em alright
If the world is all
We got then alright alright but it’s not
Do what you want
Just remember diamonds and gold
And soul, they fight

So take it back to the soul
Burn’n with the fire with the fire
That we felt before
Take it back to desire
Let it bloom let it grow
If it’s on top of the moon take it higher
Take it back to the soul
Burn’n with the fire with the fire
That we felt before
Take it back to desire
Let it bloom let it grow If it’s on top of the moon take it higher 

We started started with soul
Now we’re chasin' diamonds and gold
Let’s throw ’em into the night
They’ll say we’re crazy that’s fine
They’ll say we’re out of our minds
Well tell ’em tell ’em alright
If the world is all
We got then alright alright but it’s not
Do what you want
Just remember diamonds and gold
And diamonds and gold and soul, the fight
We started started with soul
Now we’re chasin' diamonds and gold
Let’s throw ’em into the night
They’ll say we’re crazy that’s fine
They’ll say we’re out of our minds
Well tell ’em tell ’em alright
If the world is all
We got then alright alright but it’s not
Do what you want
Just remember diamonds and gold and soul, they fight

7. This My Soul

A voice came and spoke to the silence
The words took on beauty and form
The form took its shape as a garden was born
Then man from the dust came reflecting
All goodness and beauty and life
But he lowered his gaze
As he listened to the face of low desires 

This my soul you were born
You were born into
What this man has done
It all extends to you
Let the words shake on down along your spine
And ring out true that you might find new life 

The voice came and swords blocked the garden
None could return with their lives
A curse there was placed upon every man to face
For all of time
No wisdom of man or rebellion
Could deliver new life out of death
But the voice with the curse
Spoke a promise that the word would take on flesh 

This my soul you were born
You were born into
What this man has done
It all extends to you
Let the words shake on down along your spine
And ring out true that you might find 

Then the perfect son of man
Took the place the voice had planned
Since the garden and before
He took the swords and cursed the grave
There’s nothing more to separate us from the promise
The words of a living hope

And this my soul you were born
You were born into
What this man has done
It all extends to you
Let the words shake on down along your spine
And ring out true that you might find

9. At Last, The King

To the serpent low
Said the king upon his throne
You’ve deceived and lied
My child has gone into exile
But I will go
I will make a way home
And I will bleed
Like the enemy 

In the dark
In the shadows
Light has come
In the quiet
In the dead of night
Glory, glory sang the angels in the highest
At last, the king has arrived 

Out upon the sand
Said the devil take my hand
At your bended knee
You will hold everything you see
But the king said no
I have come to be the spotless lamb undone
And I will fall
But not to you 

In the dark
In the shadows
Light has come
In the quiet
In the dead of night
Glory, glory sang the angels in the highest
At last, the king 

Is born to us to overcome exile
Born to us a virgin’s son, this child
Born to give his life for us
Good news, good news so glorious 

In the dark
In the shadows
Light has come
In the quiet
In the dead of night
Glory, glory sang the angels in the highest
At last, the king has arrived

 

10. Go

I hope you go
I hope I see you Golden shores
With lights more radiant
Than the sun
You say you won’t
You won’t believe it
Sill I can try
With the breath inside me
To say again 

 

It’s gonna go
In the blink of an eye
And I just wanna know
You’ll be there by my side
And it can feel so cold
But I’m holding on to hope
That one day your heart
Will make it home

 

When it comes, we’ll be running, running after
When it comes, we’ll be running, running after
Who we love, who we love, running after
Who we love, who we love, further up 

And I, when we go, when we go
I, when we go, I wanna go with you
And I, when we go, when we go
I, when we go, I wanna go with you
With you 

 

It’s gonna go
In the blink of an eye
And I just wanna know
You’ll be there by my side
It’s gonna go
In the blink of an eye
And I just wanna know
You’ll be there by my side
And it can feel so cold
But I’m holding on to hope
That one day your heart
Will make it home
