Lyrics

Fourteen Again

Written By: Craig, Caswell, Bowtell

Verse 1

One hot summer's day
The wind blew south and took me away
To a place where trees are tall
And I felt small, I felt small

I was 14 then
Too young to know what was happening
So I learned to close my eyes
And just pretend, just pretend

Chorus

That I had my angel wings
And a song that freedom sings
I could fly away from him
My imagination could soar above the pain
And I could be 14 again

Verse 2

By the time that autumn came
Like the leaves my life had changed
It was a time for melody and rhyme
And I belonged, I felt strong

That's when I taught myself to dream
To fill the time that falls between
When you first try and when the dream begins to fly
It's part of me and I believe

Chorus

That I have my angel wings
And a song that freedom sings
I could fly away in dreams
My imagination taught me to forgive
And I could be 14 again

Verse 3

And the journey starts again
But this time it's shared with friends
A melody needs harmony
To set it free, to set it free

Chorus

I have my angel wings
And the song that freedom sings
I could fly away in dreams
My imagination is a beautiful thing
And I could be 14 again

Imagination, its a beautiful thing
You could be 14 again

His Strong and Gentle Love

Written By: Craig, Caswell

Verse 1

When you’re crying out for hunger
When you’re weary of the road
When it seems your best is never good enough
Let Him wrap you in his strong and gentle love
Let Him wrap you in his strong and gentle love

Verse 2

When it seems your friends desert you
With no strength left to take the load
It’s time to turn back to the one friend you can trust
Let Him wrap you in his strong and gentle love
Let Him wrap you in his strong and gentle love

Verse 3

When the future’s at it’s darkest
And your plans have gone astray
When it seems your dreams have all turned into dust
Let Him wrap you in his strong and gentle love
Let Him wrap you in his strong and gentle love

Bridge

When you’ve finally reached the bottom
Or when you’re hanging by a thread
A hope begins to flicker
Where you thought all hope was dead

Verse 4

He’s the voice that breaks the silence
He’s the light that shows the way
He’s the prayer that ends the thought of giving up
Let Him wrap you in his strong and gentle love
Let Him wrap you in his strong and gentle love
Let Him wrap you in his strong and gentle love

The Candle

Written By: Craig, Cawell, McAlister

Verse 1

They never thought of danger in that small town
'Cause everyone knew everyone round there
They were more like family
Everything was built on trust
The day Melissa Thompson disappeared

Verse 2

As the feeble, fading rays of autumn sunshine
Gave way to the darkness and the cold
They gathered in the church
And offered up a silent prayer
' Cause the little girl was barely 5 years old

Chorus

A mother lit a candle to St Anthony that night
And a little country town held its breath
The fears were growing stronger with the fading of the light
It's not enough to know you've done your best
Sometimes faith kicks in when you've got nothing left

Verse 3

Michael Thompson carried on without them
He kept searching for his little girl that night
And the subtle breeze that blew
Moved the clouds and freed the moon
Lighting up the trees like candlelight

Verse 4

Somewhere in the shadows he saw something
As he stumbled t'wards the body on the ground
She showed no sign of life
'Till she opened up her eyes
He said "Don't you worry…
Daddy's got you now "

Chorus

A mother lit a candle to St Anthony that night
And a little country town held its breath
The fears were growing stronger with the fading of the light
It's not enough to know you've done your best
Sometimes faith kicks in when you've got nothing left

Chorus

A mother lit a candle to St Anthony that night
And a little country town held its breath
The fears were growing stronger with the fading of the light
It's not enough to know you've done your best
Sometimes faith kicks in when you've got nothing left
Sometimes faith kicks in when you've got nothing left
