Wash Away

Standard

I wash away my sins

I rinse my hands of dirt

Choose my friends wisely

Obey God’s word

 

Watch what I say

Read the Bible and pray

Send my love to you

On my knees I pray

 

Walk with God only

Trust and obey

Take out the trash

Watch what I say

 

If I hurt someone today

Please forgive me I pray

Listen to the good old gospel news

Hold my head up high

 

Let lessons be learned

Help the children to be heard

Praise his name

He is the Holy One

 

I will hold his hand

Kiss the hem of his garment

Wash his feet

In perfume and oil

 

Put all bad thoughts away

Let the Lord carry me through

Help others in need

By being the best I can

 

Oh Lord hear my cry

My plead for help

Keep me on the right track

Don’t let me turn back

On The Edge

Standard

As she stood alone

She saw a light

With shadows so dark

Like a black blanket

 

There was a chill

As she stood there

So lost and alone

Her eyes bleed

 

She thought in her head

On the edge of terror

As the world rushed around

And the wind knocked her down

 

Tears begin to fall

As you came to me

I was lost in your eyes

As the moonlight I see

 

You have tainted my thirst

As I tasted your blood

You leave my page unturned

As I wander around

 

Runs Through My Head

Standard

As you run through my head

My lips are used as a weapon

A shiver runs down my spine

You are wicked I see……..

 

Coming on I feel something huge

Smile at me you will

Silently I lay there

By an impact of you………

 

As you caress me……..

In the water I sink

Poisoned by blood

With the game you are playing

 

My gun is lifted……

As I walk away…….

The darkness I spread

What can I say

 

There are many scars…..

As my body fades…..

My blood runs through

My grave

 

I Have To Hold On

Standard

Something left unsaid

The deepest part of the sea

I see a shadow

From the depths of a struggle

 

I cannot live but it is hard to die

Flames are burning my soul

From my lips the words now flow

My sweet sin brings a void

 

I ache to hear my lonely night

By your blood I am tainted

As a page unturned you slipped away

I just wander around

 

On my lips is your name

Just to many lies have been told

A bridge of heartache I feel

While I slip and fall

 

I have to hold on

Or I will wash away

With the tide of times

I am tired and weary

Surface Of Reality

Standard

Behind the surface of reality

Are the hands of fantasy

With illusions of time

That is stimulating my brain

 

As time does past……..

You are in my memories

Engraved in my heart

There you will stay

 

You may grasp my touch

With a clasp I do hold

Yet you’re so far away

But really are you?

 

I feel your cool exterior

With admiration of you

Everyday I think of you

You are in disarray

 

As I hear your whisper

It makes me wonder

If you can answer with a smile

To all these things

Asleep

Standard

The house is still and everyone is asleep

That is when I let myself weep……….

 

It feels so good,  to let go

And not put on a show

 

No need to smile no kids around

Who need to see me strong and sound

 

No friends to worry,  they want to hear

Because they care it is fine……

 

Tears now can flow…………

The security I mourn that I used to know

 

I am gripped with fear

With agony of despair…..

 

Hear my muffled cry……

And dry my tears…..

 

I will not explain or beg

You will feel my pain….

 

Make my burden light

Now goodnight
