Lyrics

Snowstorm

Written By: Jenn Bostic

So many answers, nobody knows
There’s a whole lot that happens behind closed doors
When you’re an arm’s length from surrender
One breath from cavin’ in
The whole world tells you
To try again

But if I could turn life on its side
Go back and do everything right
Oh I think, I think that I might
They say that when it rains it pours
Well I’m runnin’ through a snowstorm
And I can’t get, can’t get warm

Painted smile, chin up from the ground
Can’t let the weight that’s on my shoulders think it gets me down
I’m too broken to be angry
Too much pride for tears
The one thing I whisper
That I hope no one hears

Is if I could turn life on its side
Go back and do everything right
Oh I think, I think that I might
They say that when it rains it pours
Well I’m runnin’ through a snowstorm
And I can’t get, can’t get warm

I’m rockin’ back and forth, back and forth
I have never been so cold, so cold
The ground is frozen, it holds me from goin’ on
But if I could turn life on its side
Go back and do everything right
Oh I think, I think that I might
They say that when it rains it pours
Well I’m runnin’ through a snowstorm
And I can’t get, can’t get warm

So many answers, that nobody knows

Wait for Me

Written By: Jenn Bostic & Barrett Yeretsian

Empty apartment where I sit alone
City lights say I’m not home
An old suitcase and a big brown box
That’s all I’ve got

I left behind a lot I know
But those walls around me wouldn’t let me grow
Had to catch my breath before I fell
Need some time to myself

Wait for me, wait and see
Every winter has it’s spring
Wait for me, soon you’ll see
Even a broken bird will sing
Wait, wait
We’re closer than you think
Wait, wait

I do my best not to reach for the phone
I’ve never liked sleepin’ alone
I’ll be back soon, so just hold on
I wont be gone long

Wait for me, wait and see
Every winter has it’s spring
Wait for me, soon you’ll see
Even a broken bird will sing
Wait, wait
We’re closer than you think
Wait, wait

Tonight we’re worlds away
But the stars we see are still the same
Gotta keep takin’ it day by day
My love for you will never change
Doesn’t matter how long it takes
Tomorrow I’m yours if you’ll just wait

Wait for me, wait and see
Every winter has it’s spring
Wait for me, soon you’ll see
Even a broken bird will sing
Wait, wait
We’re closer than you think
Wait, wait

Wait for me, wait and see
Every winter has it’s spring
Wait for me, soon you’ll see
Even a broken bird will sing
Wait, wait
We’re closer than you think
Wait, wait

Wait for me, soon you’ll see
Even a broken bird will sing

Change

Judy Garland said it well
Never be a second rate version of somebody else
You’ve got your own two wings
And you can choose to fly or fall

Got a three room apartment in a run down part of town
There’s a dream I’m chasin,’ don’t tell me to slow down
Everybody’s so quick with advice about who I’m suppose to be
But when it comes to me

I wont march in step, I’m gonna play right outta time
And when they say jump I wont ask how high
Love me, hate me, leave or take me
Just don’t make me change

Who says that sneakers can’t go with a dress
Who says that singin’ in tune, is a thing of the past
Sometimes I’ve a got reckless side, lookin’ for a rule to break
Cause you can’t get over the rainbow without makin’ a few mistakes

I wont march in step, I’m gonna play right outta time
And when they say jump I wont ask how high
Love me, hate me, leave or take me
Just don’t make
Don’t make, don’t make me change
Don’t make, don’t make me change
Don’t make, don’t make me change
Don’t you make me
Don’t make, don’t make me change
Don’t make, don’t make me change
Don’t make, don’t make me change
I’m gonna do my own thing

I wont march in step, I’m gonna play right outta time
And when they say jump I wont ask how high
Love me, hate me, leave or take me
Just don’t make me change
Don’t make me change
Oo

Jealous of the Angels

Written By: Jenn Bostic,Jimmy Fortune & Zach Runquist, Jimmy Fortune & Zach Runquist

I didn't know today would be our last
Or that I'd have to say goodbye to you so fast
I'm so numb, I can't feel anymore
Prayin' you'd just walk back through that door
And tell me that I was only dreamin'
You're not really gone as long as I believe

There will be another angel
Around the throne tonight
Your love lives on inside of me,
And I will hold on tight
It's not my place to question,
Only God knows why
I'm just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight

You always made my troubles feel so small
And you were always there to catch me when I'd fall
In a world where heroes come and go
Well God just took the only one I know
So I'll hold you as close as I can
Longing for the day, when I see your face again
But until then

God must need another angel
Around the throne tonight
Your love lives on inside of me
And I will hold on tight
It's not my place to question
Only God knows why
I'm just jealous of the angels
Around the throne tonight

Singin' hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
I'm just jealous of the angels
Around the throne
Tonight

Love You

Written By: Jenn Bostic,Bart Walker

Oh I remember, the first time we kissed
You were so nervous, that you almost missed
We spent all night talkin’, and though it didn’t make sense
I knew that first kiss, would be the last one I’d have

I loved you then, and I love you still
I always have, and baby I always will
It wont change with seasons, even broken hearts heal
Baby I loved you then, and I love you still

I can still feel the rain, that pourined down on that beach
The day we said I do, got all luck we’ll ever need
And if I’m honest, after all we’ve come through
I could still light a fire, with what I’m feelin’ for you

I loved you then, and I love you still
I always have, and baby I always will
It wont change with seasons, even broken hearts heal
Baby I loved you then, and I love you still

I know I shouldn’t wish, for time to go by so quick, oh but I can’t wait
To be sittin’ in a rockin’ chair, with weathered skin and silver hair, spinnin’ this ring on my hand sayin’

I loved you then, and I love you still
I always have, and baby I always will
It wont change with seasons, even broken hearts heal
Baby I loved you then, and I love you still

Revival

Written By: Jenn Bostic,Jesse Nemitz,James C Goodfellow

When you’re tired, and the way looks dark
When it takes everything you have not fall apart
Just remember, like a morning star
To let the world see who you are

There’ll be TROUBLE in this life
There wont always be a bridge to the other side
Keep your head up and your spirits high
Sooner or later, will come your time

Chorus:
There’s a revival, comin’ this way
Yeah there’s a freedom that breaks every chain
Better get ready, it wont be long
Before revival’s comin’ on

When the answers, have packed up and gone
And your hand’s about to bleed from knockin’ on
Don’t give up now, for the day will come
When your desert, meets a holy flood

CHORUS

Is that a fire inside of your veins
Open the door and let in the rain (revival)
You feel a tremble what it could be
Shakin’ the ground right under your feet (revival)
A spirit wind crawls into your breath
Shockin’ the beat back into your chest (revival)
And like a wave born out of a squall
You will awaken once and for all (revival)

Take it to the river
Take it to the river
Take it to the river
Take it to the river and wash it away
I said take (take it to the river)
Come on take (take it to the river)
Go on take (take it to the river)
Take it to the river and wash it away
If you’ve got doubt (take it to the river)
You got pain (take it to the river)
If you’ve got fear (take it to the river)
Take it to the river and wash it away
You got sickness (take it to the river)
You got shame (take it to the river)
If you’ve got a sin that needs forgiveness
Take it to the river
Take it to the river
Take it to the river

CHORUS
