Lyrics

The Love that Heals

Written By: Byron Kelsey Atkinson

THE LOVE THAT HEALS

VERSE 1
I shy away from putting my heart on the line
I run away whenever things get serious
I don’t want to get hurt again
I can’t handle all of the pain
That heartbreak can bring

VERSE 2
When I met you I knew I had found someone real
I can’t deny the things that you’re making me feel
You have been so patient with me
And you’ve shown your sincerity
And you gave me hope
For yours is the love that heals

CHORUS
A soothing love, love that un-breaks my heart
A precious love, love that is hard to find
A lasting love, one that stands the test of time
Yours is the love that heals
Yours is the love that heals

VERSE 3
I’m going to stay and give you and I every chance
I do believe that we’ve found much more than romance
I believe that we met by fate
I believe that we are soul mates
We were meant to be
For yours is the love that heals

CHORUS
A soothing love, love that un-breaks my heart
A precious love, love that is hard to find
A lasting love, one that stands the test of time
Yours is the love that heals
Yours is the love that heals

Out of Time

Written By: Byron Kelsey Atkinson

VERSE 1

Trust is the key
To everything we share
Without it there is nothing
Trust is everything to me
And you took all mine away
When I saw you in a restaurant
With someone else

CHORUS
I was out of sight
And out of your mind
And now you’re out of time
So tell me was it really worth loosing me
Out of sight, out of mind, out of time

VERSE 2

Hope is the food
That keeps our dream alive
Without it they just whither
Hope provides the drive to live
It’s the reason that we give
Where there’s love there’s hope but where there’s not
There’s just despair

CHORUS
I was out of sight
And out of your mind
And now you’re out of time
So tell me was it really worth loosing me
Out of sight, out of mind, out of time

VERSE 3

Faith is the means
By which I’ve remained strong
Without it I’d be so lost
Faith has been restorative
It allows me to believe
That there’s someone waiting, somewhere out there
Just for me

CHORUS
I was out of sight
And out of your mind
And now you’re out of time
So tell me was it really worth loosing me
Out of sight, out of mind, out of time

No More

No More

Verse 1

I can’t believe what hate has done
Look at all the lives it’s changed
So suddenly it touched our shores
Challenging life and liberty

Verse 2
We can’t conceive how anyone
Could cause such destruction and grief
Other countries have felt it too
And they lend us a helping hand

Chorus
We say no more
United we stand
We say no more
And never again
This is our world and it’s too small
For hate and bigotry
We say no more
United we stand
We say no more
We speak with one voice
No more, no more, no more
United we stand
We say no more

Verse 3
We know our world’s far from perfect
But it is the place we call home
It’s up to us to better it
So our losses won’t be in vain

Chorus
We say no more
United we stand
We say no more
And never again
This is our world and it’s too small
For hate and bigotry
We say no more
United we stand
We say no more
We speak with one voice
No more, no more, no more
United we stand
We say no more

Verse 4
Let’s remember what hate can do
Christian, Moslem, Hindu and Jew
Shinto and Buddhist, atheist too
This world belongs to me and you

Chorus
We say no more
United we stand
We say no more
And never again
This is our world and it’s too small
For hate and bigotry
We say no more
United we stand
We say no more
We speak with one voice
No more, no more, no more
United we stand
We say no more
