Waiting

Written By: ben krahne BMI

" Waiting'
v1
I've been here a time or two
Searching hard for somebody new
Feels like a waste of my time
But I know I've just got to try
Nothing more I can do but to
Dream about you

chorus

Where are you now
I'm here waiting
Where are now anticipating
Where are now
I know you're waiting too

v2
Got a feeling that you're just like me
Want a love to set you free
But your heart is lost in the clouds
You feel alone even in a crowd
Nothing more you can do
But to dream about me

repeat chorus

bridge
I know loves the only way
So I pray every single day
For love to finally find me

repeat chorus

Don't count Sleep

Lyrics
DON’T COUNT SLEEP
© Words and Music: Ben Krahne Donna Aylor-BMI

V1
Snuck in my window after curfew

I thought I was so cool

Daddy woke me up at daylight

I said “Hey Man that’s cruel”

Then he threw me my hat and boots

Growled “Boy get out of that bed”

Worked me like a plow horse

My face was burning red

I said" Hey Pop lets quit, the sun’s about down"

He just smiled and said " There's one thing that I've found

Chorus

YOU ONLY LIVE ABOUT FORTY YEARS

IF YA DON’T COUNT SLEEP

AND I KNOW AS A YOUNG MAN

YOU DON’T THINK THAT DEEP

YEAH THIS BIG BLUE BALL WE’RE LIVING ON

SPINS FASTER THAN YOU THINK

WE ONLY LIVE ABOUT FORTY YEARS

WELL THAT’S IF YOU DON’T COUNT SLEEP

Eleven years of short days and nights

Slipped by much too fast

Working crazy no vacation

When Daddy calls he just laughs

Have a baby boy due in a month

I need to clone myself in two

Dig holes for my new fence

And paint that room blue

Like to throw water in that hour glass of sand

Can't believe I'm crowding thirty, now I understand

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE

Sixteen hours to make that hay

The other eight we dream away

So fit alotta life in between

Cuz as the pendulum swings

REPEAT CHORUS

Church for Sale

Lyrics
Church For Sale
Ben Krahne BMI/ Donna Aylor BMI

V1

He was born in a small town, raised on the gospel truth
Took a job in the city, where his faith soon lost it's roots
So he packed up his lost soul, and drove back home today
Found himself at this old church, where he was saved
But what he saw was a sign on the broken door

Chorus

Church for sale, it may seem weathered beyond repair
Been awhile since it heard a prayer
Needs love hammer and nails
And a fresh coat of faith
Church for sale

V2
Echoes of Sunday sermons, bring back sweet memories
As the cracked stained glass reflects, a broken man on his knees
It's hard now to remember why he ever ran away
But chance or faith led him to this forgotten place
Jesus swung a hammer, maybe he could too

repeat chorus

bridge
Now on a sunlit sacred day, there's praises from every pew
And a man singing Amazing Grace, who was raised on the gospel truth

repeat chorus
