Lyrics

Oh, Mary Mary

Written By: Christian Andréason

Mary had a little lamb
It was her very soul
And everywhere that Mary went
It seemed she lost control

A life filled with depression
Ashamed for who she’d been
Mary grabbed some pills one day
And decided that ... she didn’t want to live

Mary wrote GOD a letter
It said, “Hey Lord, I’m coming home
I don’t really like it here
Cause I feel so all alone
So JESUS please forgive me
For the lost soul I have been
I’m just so sorry . . .
For all those days that I sinned."

So Mary lay her self
Down to go to sleep
And as the angels watched
They all began to weep

And all the tears they cried
Were the moments of her pain
But JESUS came and he caught the tears
And he made a rainbow out of the HOLY rain

He said, Mary you are my little lamb
You are my precious child
I have seen your trouble girl
And I know you’ve been wild
Some days you made me shake my head
Some days you made me sigh
Oh, but Mary, Mary . . .
It was for those days
I gave my life.

The heavens cleared as Mary woke
Startled, she looked around
She saw her letter hanging up
With a halo all around
And crossed out were the words that read
“Lost soul I have been”
And written right beside it was,
"Love JESUS, Your Best Friend!"

So Mary lived with Joy and remembered everyday
That no matter how bad things got
Cause of JESUS she'd been saved

And at 94 years old, while sleeping in her bed
She heard, Oh, Mary, Mary . . .
And she said, “JESUS, My Best Friend!”

Everyone has a purpose in life
To believe in something
And to prove it right!
So hold on believer
Hold on tight!
To the Rhythm
To the Rhythm of Life!

Verse 1
You march to the Rhythm of a beating drum
You live your life it’s a boring one
You work everyday from nine to five
Scraping at the bottom and barely getting by
You’ve done your best
You’ve tried so hard
But as you look around you see you haven’t gone far
When you haven’t paid your taxes
And your rent is due
If you don’t make that money
your life is through!

Well! Hey! Hey! Hey! Trendsetter!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Go Getter!

Living in this life of mass confusion
Searching every moment for a new solution
Don’t let the negative bring you down!
Pick yourself up just listen to the sound
If you have a chance to make an improvement
Sitting in a corner won’t help you do it!
Can’t you see the Era of your coming time?
Don’t shut your self out!
Don’t close your mind!

Everyone has a purpose in life
To believe in something
And to prove it right!
So hold on believer

She said, “You stand up! For your honor boy!
Stand up! For that integrity!”
She said,
“YOU MARCH TO THE RHYTHM OF YOUR OWN DRUM BEAT!”

Running Back To You

Written By: Christian Andréason

There's not many places, I could ever call my own
There's too many faces, tellin me I don’t belong
They don’t care about me
They don't know me like you do
There's no one in this world I'd rather come back running to!

Chorus:
So I'm running back to you
I won’t stop running
Until my Heart feels only you
…And my Hearts beating!
As I'm running back to you
I won't stop running
Till I'm safe alone with you

I hear too many voices
Too many choices in my head
I need your sanctuary
Protecting me from all of them
You are the only one
Your voice is all I hear
Calling out my name
And helping me to break thru all my fear!

Chorus:
As I'm running back to you
I won’t stop running
Until my Heart feels only you
…And my Hearts beating!
As I'm running back to you
I won't stop running
Till I'm safe alone with you

I'm coming home!

End Chorus:
Yes! I'm running back to you
I won’t stop running!
Until my Heart feels only you
…And my Hearts beating!
As I'm running back to you
I won't stop running!
Till I'm safe alone with you!

I won’t stop running!
I won’t stop running!
I won’t stop running!!

I Belong to You

Written By: C. Andreason

I Belong To You
©2004 Stormchild Music/ASCAP

Every Night when I go to Sleep
It seems I always Wake Up… from some Crazy Dream
And I ask Myself … Am I going to be alright?

AIDS, Drugs, Toxic Waste
Ozone Layers and People … So Filled with Hate.

I ask Myself … Are We going to be alright?
Do You ever Ask Yourself … if We’re gonna be alright?

Chorus:
I may not know what Tomorrow brings
Life to me is just a Mystery!
But at least I know one thing is True…
At Least I know that I Belong to you.

Sometimes I Scare Myself
Too often I Pass Judgment … on someone else
But at least I know … I can Always Change my Mind.

Now I Believe in Hope!
And I’m gonna Try to Believe in People
…But I’ve Lived Long Enough to Know

Every-Thing Changes…
Every-One Changes…
…And So Will I

Chorus:
I may not know what Tomorrow brings
Life to me is just a Mystery!
But at Least I know one thing is True…
…I Belong to you.
(Repeat Chorus in Ahhhs…)

I Belong to you…
I Belong to you…

Chorus:
I may not know what Tomorrow brings
Life to me is just a Mystery!
But at least I know one thing is True…
At least I know that I Belong to you.
At least I know that I Belong to you. I Belong to you – I Belong to you!

Love Who You Love

Love who you Love
2005 Joe Hogue Music, admin Bug Music BMI, Sonicoaster music, ASCAP, B-Clef Music ASCAP

Some say yes!
Some say no...
To the Love that finds its way into the Soul.
Don't hold back!
Don't hesitate!
I can see it in your eyes ... your fighting fate!

Love who you Love
I can see that you're afraid
Just don't let it slip away!
Love who you Love!
Don't worry what they say...
Love who you Love!

You're too young
You're too old
And you try so hard to change and fit the mold
It's not right
It's so unkind
Will we ever learn the Heart is blind?

Love who you Love.
I can see that you're afraid
Just don't let it slip away
Love who you Love!
Don't worry what they say...

Everyone is telling you ... just how it needs to be
Putting Boundaries and Limitations ... that keep you questioning
The pressure is building ... it's your life don't let it go
Just look deep inside .... And your Heart will know!

Love who you Love.
I can see that you're afraid
Just don't let it slip away
Love who you Love!
Don't worry what they say...
LOVE ALWAYS FINDS A WAY!
Love who you Love!
Love who you Love!
