  • 07:06 Lyrics Seein' Amiss

    Well I thought~  I could see~  into the depths~  of reality

    And I thought~ that I knew~  what was true~  what was you

    But I don't know anymore 

    I was seein' amiss

     

    And I'm so glad I was mistaken

    For the truth turned out to be far more beautiful than I imagined

    I didn't know what I was looking for

    Now I'm taken to the edge of reality

    And it's much more than anything I could have hoped for

     

    Ohh~ she gave all she had to give

    Mmm~ searching for the way to live

     

    I thought I knew you~ I thought I knew your soul

    I understood you~ little did I know

    Now I don't know anyone

    I was seein' amiss

     

    You are so beautiful~ more than you'll ever know

    And I'm so grateful~ how can I adore you more?

    When I look into your eyes I cannot fathom the depth of your soul

    No matter what happens forever you're in my heart

    LYRICS

    I ~ would love to ~ stay with you ~ forever and ever ~ my love

    But I ~ must go ~ away from here ~ my spirit ~ is calling me

    I ~ will always ~ be with you ~ in spirit ~ we are as one

    And I'm ~ so grateful ~ for all we shared ~ God bless you ~ and keep you in peace

  • 06:29 Lyrics Dreams 7, part 1

    Can I be dreaming, sleepwalking through this world?

    Am i just dreaming, everything seems so real

    Now in my dreaming, a teacher appears to me

    A guide and a brother, calls from reality

     ~~All that is born, shall fade away~~

    ~~All name and form, dream in the day~~

    How can it be, innocence is lost?

    ~~All that is true, shall never die~~

    And how can it be, God does not answer?

    ~~All that is you, also am I~~

    Where is the good, life that ends in death?

    And where is the good, life without you-- with me?

    ~~Here in the now, all dreams are gone~~

    ~~Nothing but life, here in this song~~

     

    Dreaming of lightness, dreaming of tears

    Dreaming of heaven, while hell is so near

    Dreaming of music, dreaming this song

    I'm dreaming the world, I wonder for how long-- how long?

    ~~All love that's true, won't fade away~~

    ~~Deep in great peace, sorrow's at bay~~

    To me this rings true, love is never lost

    ~~All that has been, all that's to come~~

    To me this rings true, love is the answer

    ~~In essence is love, this is God's song~~

    All that appears, every experience

    Is healed from above, blessed by the love-- in you

    ~~Your love is real, I'm one with you~~

    ~~Peace to the dream, now I've found you~~

  • 04:15 Lyrics Dreams 7, part 3

    What a nightmare  ~~slowly frightens my mind, innocence is thrown away

    What a nightmare  ~~slowly hardens my heart, love is held at bay

    What a nightmare  ~~daily makes me confused and I don't see the way to go

    What a nightmare  ~~daily makes me call out "Lord show me the way to go"

     

    You only hurt the ones you love

    ~~we will come together, yes we'll be together, love will conquer all

    We seek the guidance from above

    ~~we will come together, yes we'll be together, love will conquer all

    A broken heart won't keep me away

    ~~we will come together, yes we'll be together, love will conquer all

    We rise and pray again today

    ~~we have come together, yes we are together, love has come to all this day

NOTES
Big gratitude to our vocal coach on this recording, Anton Pierce. Go to God brother.
