Lyrics

YOU OPEN HEAVEN WITH YOUR SMILE

Written By: john paul stewart

VERSE ONE:
I CAN’T HIDE FROM MY WORLD
MY CAMOUFLAGE JUST NEVER SEEMS TO WORK
IN THIS JUNGLE MADE OF STEAL
SO DISCOURAGING TO ME AND ALL THAT I BELIEVE
NOW I’M CAGED IN A FACTORY
IN THIS HELL I TASTE THE SMELL
OF MAN’S OBSCENITIES
SO WHILE YOU’RE ALONE TONIGHT
THIS TIGER WANTS TO CLAW AND FIGHT HIS WAY BACK TO YOUR SIDE

PRE CHORUS:
I COME AROUND IN THE MORNING
WITH COFFEE DRIPPING FROM YOUR FAVORITE CUP
I TASTE YOUR BEAUTY
POURING OUT FROM GOD ABOVE

CHORUS:
YOU OPEN HEAVEN WITH YOUR SMILE
YOU CAST THE DEMONS
FROM MY HEART OF FIRE
SO COVER ME WITH YOUR LIPS
POURING BLESSING
AS I TASTE AND SIP YOUR LOVE A WHILE
YOU OPEN HEAVEN WITH YOUR SMILE
YOU OPEN HEAVEN WITH YOUR SMILE

VERSE TWO:
IT’S NOT GOOD TO BE ALONE
SO I CHOOSE TO MAKE OUR HOUSE A HOME
WHERE THE WORRIES AND THE CARES
NEVER SEEM TO BE THERE
TAKING FROM OUR LOVE AFFAIR

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS AND CHORUS

BRIDGE:
WHEN I FIND I’M BACK IN HELL TONIGHT
I KNOW YOUR MORNING KISS
WILL BRING ME BACK TO LIFE

REPEAT CHORUS ONLY

IN THE MORNING

Written By: john paul stewart

Verse One:
When darkness fell on the mountain
Beauty was hid from the eye
And a city was born in the foothills
Filled with light and life

Chorus:
In the morning the sun will rise
The view will come alive
The rocks will cry out with songs of joy
And the morning sun will rise
The mountain will come to life
In the morning

Verse Two:
Such power and light at our fingertips
Yet that city was locked down tight
Through the night the mountain stood silent
But darkness will soon be burned from our eyes

Repeat Chorus and Tag
In the morning

Bridge:
I faintly hear the singing
Fear keeping joy locked inside
As the rocks are sleeping in darkness
And the city kept the light of its life hid inside

Repeat Chorus and Tag:
In the morning
In the morning

FULL CRY

Written By: john paul stewart

"Full Cry"

Verse One:
My black and tan
Watchful eye
Full of life
Ready to fly
Mountain man
By her side
Headin' on out
On a half moon night

Chorus:
Listen to the sound
Wailin' hound
My heart is pounding
I run to that sound
A star lit sky
My girl’s in flight
I run and run
To my dogs full cry

Verse two:
That black and tan
Treed faithfully
Another bandit
Hangin' up in a tree
I catch my breath
I stop and look out to the west
Hills more better
Than the place I left

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:
I just love that hound
She’s gonna chase that bandit down
Wailin’ through the trees
Runnin’ free
My black and tan and me

Repeat Chorus:
