Lyrics

Tempter

Written By: Lyrics: Natasha Milner, Music; Andy Milner

Verse 1: Why do your eyes have to sparkle that way?
Every move of your dance sweeps me away
Stuck in a trance when you speak my name
but I know that I should be walking away

Chorus: Hold up God give me strength to break away from you,
To do what I know deep inside is the truth.

Verse 2: Words laced with poison from your lips.
Never exposing your deadly kiss.
Illusions of affection the image you paint.
My spirit is screaming this isn't my fate.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge: open my sight, kill all my pride,
True love is light in dark you hide, still my God he's always by my side.
Watching me both day and night, to wipe away the many tears I've cried.

Repeat Chorus
Repeat Chorus

Kissing Lonely Goodbye

Written By: Natasha Milner: lyrics, Andy Milner:music

Verse 1:
How deep the love you have for me
everywhere I look it's all I see

I was a sinking ship stuck in uncertainty

no height nor depth can keep me from you

you said there's nothing you won't do

to be captive by my love

oh yes you know it's true

Chorus

I, I love you more than the stars hung in the sky

I, I'll be there and I will never leave your side

Verse 2:

You said the sun it shines for me

in the palm of your hand is where I'll be

I don't know what to say cause you always amaze me

No height nor depth can keep me from you

you said there's nothing you won't do

to be captive by my love

oh yes you know it's true

Chorus

I,I love you more than the stars hung in the sky

I, I'll be there and I will never leave your side

Bridge

oh yeah

you love me

I'm kissing lonely goodbye

Repeat chorus

Break the Walls

Written By: Natasha Milner: lyrics, Andy Milner:music

Verse 1:
Can't stay where I am
So dark so cold
Screaming silently inside
What did I do to get here?
So lost So scared
Paralyzed by my own fear

Chorus:
Please reach for my hand
Save me from this place I'm in
Please save me from this place I'm in

Verse 2:
I can't do this alone
You're my only source of hope
The only missing piece of my soul
Come find me, bring me back to life
Set me free
Break down the walls inside

Chorus:
Please reach for my hand
Save me from this place I'm in
Please save me from this place I'm in
Please reach for my hand
Take me far away from here
Please save me from this place I'm in

Bridge:
Set me free Lord
(break down the walls)
Set me free Lord
(let them all fall)

Repeat Chorus

Restore My Soul

Written By: Natasha Milner: Lyrics, Andy Milner: Music

I'm falling apart
I feel like my heart
is in a million pieces
laying on the floor

I'm coming undone
But I need to hear you say
you're not alone

Lord come to me
Come rescue me
Lord I need your touch
to restore my soul

I welcome you in
for there's no greater friend
than the lover of my soul
I've fallen from grace
but mercy and love
is all you want to show

Lord come to me
Come rescue me
Lord I need your touch
to restore my soul
X2

to restore my soul
X4

I Will Wait For You

Written By: Natasha Milner: lyrics, Andy Milner:music

I will wait for you
until you decide to come for me
beyond that sky
is where my heart long to be

People don't like to talk about it
I know I don't belong
we're only here for a moment
and then we're gone

A voice deep inside my bones says
This is not your home
Heaven is closer now than ever before
I will lift my eyes up to see the face of my lord
where will you be when time is, time is no more

Allelujah no more darkness will there be
only light, no more tears, pain, or suffering
have you ever thought about
where do you belong
we're only here for a moment, and then we're gone

A voice deep inside my bones says
this is not your home
heaven is closer now than ever before
I will lift my eyes up to see the face of my lord
where will you be when time is, time is no more

I will wait for you, until you decide to come for me
beyond that sky, is where my heart longs to be
