Lyrics

Sling Shot

Written By: Auna Mae and Tim Hall

Run to a safe place that you have called your own
Imagine 10 times more than what you see inside
Comfort calming relief sweet bitterness high
Nothing compares to the love of Christ
//Sling Shot me up to Heaven, now that is where I want to be
Sling Shot me up to HeavenTake Me There!//
Pearly Gates, Golden Highways, Gigantic Doors
Worship never ceasing as we praise the Lord
This is more than what we’ve been waiting for
‘Round each corner, there is more to explore/
There is no other place I'd rather be than right by your side
A World I have never seen that shows your true beauty

Move

Written By: Auna Mae

I am not just a marionette on a string
I can choose to do anything
Free will is what you have given to me
Lord you move me, that’s the only way I can grow
By your love from the path that you have shown
Your plans are greater than my own
//You move me
You move me
You move me
You move me//
Holy Spirit, you’re here, you move me now
Mighty Powers, you speak as I back down
Listen Closely to your whispering sound
Father, you’re with me every where I turn
You soothe the bridges that have burned
You move our desire for your return/
You draw these tears of love for you, tears of many years
You saved my life and soul too, so now I move for you

Beyond The Words

Written By: Auna Mae and Tim Hall

Why can’t they try to see beyond the words
When everything I say gets turned around
Who are they to interpret how I feel
If only they could know how much it means to me
//I may not wear my heart upon my sleeve
Even if I did you would you believe?
Or would you just smile and watch me bleed?//
Should I feel more hurt in my transgressions?
Or maybe I could just walk away
Do I feel that you would ever listen
to my heart, beyond the words./
You will never understand my destination
Where I am going, you can not touch,
Or even see what’s good for me,
Good for you, good for you, good for you

Maybe

Written By: Auna Mae

I hear you call my name
I want to run and hide in shame
I feel your presence here right now
This is why I don’t want to fall down
Here you are trying to sooth my heart
In this life when I need a part of you to
Forgive, Forget, All I Am
And Love Me, For Ever
//Maybe I, will find you
Maybe I, will come to you and
Maybe you, will come to me
To show me the beauty of your world//
Jesus you, are my strength and my refuge
Only when, I’m in desperate need of you
Where are you Lord? Please show me your face
And give me all of your mercy and grace
Here I am, trying to call out your name
Do you even here me calling you?
Through the years, oh I know it’s the same
You break me down to show me your view
/Can you imagine a million faces
Around this world in a million places
Maybe when we come to you there will be no more dying
And no more suffering
///Maybe I, will find you
Maybe I, will come to you and
Maybe you, will come to me
To show me your beauty
Yes, I have found you
Yes, I have come to you
Yes, you have come to me
To show me the beauty of your world
Of your world
