Track Name: A Song for Jim MacQueen
Seems the time just slips away
The more I’m quickening my pace
Could it be that I’m just goin round and round
What’s the hurry …oh what’s the race?
Can you read these words I scroll
With each verb or noun I wrote
I get closer to the hope for which I groan
I’m not alone…I’m not alone
Yet on the other side
wasters seek our lives
Poisonous promises; highest of heights
heads and heavy guns
eyes have just begun to turn from us
Neglect will end fires burned for us
It seems its time to take my turn
oh It must be earned
So I’ll leave this place called home
Travel ‘ore the sea and land – yes I will roam
I can’t rest for now – Their callin’ for a war
And I’m a soldier ….I’m fightin on
Yeah a soldier – I’m fighting on
Here on the other side
What’s worth the highest price?
A worthy sacrifice – highest of heights
all the things they’ve done
all the ways that they’ve begun to leave
The rain will fall and with it brings relief
We’ll rinse away this…disease
And the war’s already won
But it seems it just begun
Track Name: Jamie's Song
Won’t you share a cup with me?
See the warmth, it will rise over Washington’s trees.
Seems a short while ago,
we were sharing these stories in Ohio.
We were young praying for home
that would suddenly comfort our young hearts and wrap up our souls.
But the faithful they go, and you went where the whispers unfold…untold.
Now you play the Kazoo,
and you join the parade as they dance around you -
At the university -
With their untold stories and a cup of coffee.
They were young praying for Love
that would suddenly capture their young hearts and strengthen their souls.
And the faithful abide, so you wait while their stories unfold….no longer untold…paving with gold…The King He will hold…
It seems you’ve found home…
