Biography

Field Avenue's story is rooted in a love for Jesus and a passion for worship music, and is punctuated by the spiritual gifts of those committed to its purpose.

In October 2008, Field Avenue's founding members, both songwriters, musicians, and worshippers, made a decision to combine their passions and talents to create a community outreach band. Its purpose was to reach and gain a point of entry to those who wouldn't necessarily come to church.

Shortly thereafter, others became involved, recordings were made, rehearsals were in full swing, and events were scheduled.

But even the best of intentions can be met with difficulty. Field Avenue suffered casualties. One member took some time off to spend with family and ultimately relocated across the country. Another was called to minister elsewhere. And yet another was needed by his family across the globe.

However, the heart of Field Avenue has remained intact. It has become the entity that it is today...

...committed to worship through music
for the purpose of
drawing others near to the throne of the King.

Lyrics

The Only One

Written By: Susan VanAlstine and S. Smith

Oh I can see the way you love me
How you’ve brought me to this place
Oh and I can feel the way you hold me
In the warmth of your embrace

Your breath on the wind, your eyes in the sunrise
You’re with me Lord, wherever I go

You’re the only one I want
You’re the only one for me

Lord I confess I get distracted
By many earthly things
But now I know none can match your beauty
And the glory that it brings, my Lord

Your breath on the wind, your eyes in the sunrise
You’re with me Lord, wherever I go

You’re the only one I want
You’re the only one I need
How could I ever turn away?
When you’re the only one for me

You’re the only one I want
You’re the only one I need
How could I ever turn away?
When you’re the only one for me

How could I ever turn away (from Jesus)?
When you’re the only one for me

Coming Up For Air

Written By: Susan VanAlstine and S. Smith

I can’t hold my breath much longer
But each battle that I fight makes me stronger
Fill my body with everything I need to be what I am to be

You’re like coming up for air and taking my next breath
I’ll give you all I have till I’ve got nothing left
You’re like taking my next step and speaking my next word
Hearing my next sound
Oh you are Life and you are mine

You may not be here but you’re with me
And sometimes when we fail we find victory
Unexpected, you gave me something real
And now I know how it feels

You’re like coming up for air and taking my next breath
I’ll give you all I have till I’ve got nothing left
You’re like taking my next step and speaking my next word
Hearing my next sound
Oh you are Life and you are mine

You’re like coming up for air and taking my next breath
I’ll give you all I have till I’ve got nothing left
You’re like taking my next step and speaking my next word
Hearing my next sound
Oh you are Life and you are mine

You’re like coming up for air and taking my next breath
I’ll give you all I have till I’ve got nothing left
You’re like taking my next step and speaking my next word
Hearing my next sound
Oh you are Life and you are mine

I can’t hold my breath much longer

Follow Me

Written By: Susan VanAlstine

Lately I feel I’m not alone
Somebody’s watching me
They even do the things I do
Some are mocking me
The ultimate in flattery
To try to be like me

But if you follow me I will lead you back to your father, your maker
If you could see through me you would see what forgiveness is
If you were listening then you heard him say
He loves and adores you
And you’d know you’re home
So follow

“Be a leader, not a follower”
So they say
But there’s one who no one leads above
Just walk this way
Go ahead and follow me
In fact catch me if you can

But if you follow me I will lead you back to your father, your maker
If you could see through me you would see what forgiveness is
If you were listening then you heard him say
He loves and adores you
And you’d know you’re home
So follow

Rescue Me

Written By: Susan VanAlstine

Rescue me from my sin
Wash me clean from uncleanliness within
Within my heart, within my mind
Within my soul, within my life

Come rescue me
Oh, come rescue me
And I’ll run after you
Come set me free
Oh, come set me free
And I’ll run after you

Take control of my life
You know I am so unqualified
To do this right, to make this choice
To win this fight, to raise my voice

Come rescue me
Oh, come rescue me
And I’ll run after you
Come set me free
Oh, come set me free
And I’ll run after you

Time Stood Still

Written By: Susan VanAlstine

You were just a boy I knew from down the street
Never really thought that you could ever think too much of me
Till the day you called
And I could not believe the words I heard you say to me
Time stood still
And as the days and weeks were passing, not a day went by
I didn’t hear your voice or see your face, I wondered why
The minutes turned to hours as we became entwined
Time stood still

And the daisies swayed in the wind that night
And the moon reflected off your eyes
And I knew that we were in love
You kissed my lips and held me tight
And you told me it would be alright
And you knew that we were in love
Time stood still
Time stood still

When we’re together it feels like the clock stops
The world is gone
And I’m surrounded by your love just like a blanket, warm
You’re anxious till you feel my touch
I calm you down
Time stands still
We were so innocent for so long, tried to make it right
But we could only go so long trying to win that fight
There were no more words for you to tell me how you felt for me
Time stood still

And the daisies swayed in the wind that night
And the moon reflected off your eyes
And I knew that we were in love
You kissed my lips and held me tight
And you told me it would be alright
And you knew that we were in love
Time stood still
Time stood still
