It's Cold Here Without You

Written By: Kristian Binion


IT’S COLD HERE WITHOUT YOU

V1
TRACE THE TEAR UP MY CHEEK
TO MY HEART, TO OUR MEMORIES
AND MY HOPE’S STILL UP FOR SOME DAY
YOU MIGHT COME BACK TO ME

C
BUT ‘TIL THEN I’LL WEAR MY SWEATER IN THE SUMMERTIME
CAUSE IT’S COLD HERE WITHOUT YOU
SING SONGS TO OUR PICTURES AND CRY
CAUSE I’M SO LOST WITHOUT YOU

BUT I’LL BE WAITING, WAITING
FOR LOVE TO RETURN…
LOVE TO RETURN…
LOVE TO RETURN AGAIN

V2
I’LL NEVER FORGET YOUR HEAD ON MY SHOULDER
WHEN IT’S COLD IN MY HEART THE MEMORIES OF
YOU MAKE IT WARMER
SO I’LL HOLD ON TO WHAT LOVE HAS LEFT
AND PRAY SOMEDAY IT’L BRING YOU BACK

C
BUT ‘TIL THEN I’LL WEAR MY SWEATER IN THE SUMMERTIME
CAUSE IT’S COLD HERE WITHOUT YOU
SING SONGS TO OUR PICTURES AND CRY
CAUSE I’M SO LOST WITHOUT YOU

I’M WAITING, I’M WAITING
FOR LOVE TO RETURN
LOVE TO RETURN
LOVE TO RETURN AGAIN

T
I’LL WEAR MY SWEATER IN THE SUMMERTIME
CAUSE IT’S COLD HERE WITHOUT YOU

Dieing To Know You

Written By: Bobby and Kristian Binion

Dieing To Know You

I felt your touch through the veil
I heard your whispers from afar
But still my heart longs for more
Not just for your touch, but your embrace
Not just for your hand, but your face
Still my heart longs for more

Your fragrance draws me to this place
Of desperation for your face
…Lord, I’m dieing to know you…
…yes I’m dieing to know you…

Lord, I pray to see your face
A heart to find your secret place
Only one way that can be
A man must die before he sees
Willing to say goodbye to things
Show me how to die to me

Gotta get close, gotta get close to you
Gotta get close, gotta get close to you
Lord, I’m dieing to know you
Yes I’m dieing to know you

How many tears are shed in pain
For death to take me home again
To say goodbye to all I know
And trust this path that you have shown

Oh grave where is your victory?
Oh death where is your sting?
For me to die is only gain
To live as Christ brings so much pain

I’d give it all up, give it all up for you
I’d give it all up, give it all up for you
Cause I’m dieing to know you
Yes I’m dieing to know you

Artist

ARTIST

C
Artist come paint my life
Crimson colors flow
Cover all the shadows of my past
Come and paint my soul
Artist paint my soul

V1
From a well lit corner of the artist’s studio
A canvas shares the story of a time not long ago
A garden of such beauty, a place hard to describe
Prepared by this artist for his love there to abide
With every stroke his brush has made another chapter seen
From life and love eternal to pain and tears between
A time of sweet communion and a time of distant hearts
Longing to be joined again never more to be apart

C
Artist come paint my life
Crimson colors flow
Cover all the shadows of my past
Come and paint my soul
Artist paint my soul

V2
On yet another canvas, one more chapter one more verse
Brushed in crimson color the final chapter can be heard
With every stroke the artist makes to tell about His love
The heart of God has now unveiled a portrait of His son
Laying down His brush the artist had to look away
The work is now complete and now there’s no more need to paint
With mercy and compassion the artist has designed
An undeserving masterpiece of love for you and I

C
Artist come paint my life
Crimson colors flow
Cover all the shadows of my past
Come and paint my soul
Artist paint my soul

C2
The artist painted my life
Crimson colors flowed
Covered all the shadows of my past
He came to paint my soul
He came and made me whole

Tag line…Artist painted my life………(slower and deliberate)

Who You Really Are

Written By: Kristian Binion


WHO YOU REALLY ARE

Verse 1
Take off your makeup stop the show
I want to know who you really are
Put down the script forget your lines
I want to know who you really are
Cause behind the curtain is a whole different scene
And under your skin (mask) is a beautiful thing

Chorus
So come out come out wherever you are
Come out come out wherever you are
I want to know who you really are
(repeat)

Verse 2
Lift up your head put down the phone
I want to know who you really are
Look in my eyes and hold my hand
I want to show you who I really am
Cause behind this boy is a whole different man
And I wanna show you who I really am

Verse3
Ill show you me if you’ll show me you
I’ll go first if you’d like me to
Let the morning find me in your arms
I want to see into your heart
Cause behind everything between you and me
All I can see is a beautiful thing

Tag line
Come out come out whoever we are
Come out come out whoever we are
I want to know who we really are

Ten Thousand Shoes

Written By: Bobby and David Binion

TEN THOUSAND SHOES

Verse
I see all the hurting children
They’re just casualties of life
I see wounded, shattered victims
Can you hear the cries
Of the desperate and the fatherless
Does anybody see
Is someone reaching out today
To touch the least of these

Chorus 1
Ten thousand shoes to cover the feet of Jesus
Ten thousand feet to walk in the steps of love
Ten thousand songs to sing of His love and mercy
Will ten thousand shoes for the children even be enough?

Bridge
Nothing that we do will go unseen
For the father watches over everything
Every gift and every sacrifice
Does he see us through the children’s eyes?

Chorus 2
Ten thousand shoes to cover the feet of Jesus
Ten thousand people willing to help a child
Ten thousand reasons to tell them of one who frees us
Maybe ten thousand shoes can bring ten thousand smiles

Repeat chorus 1 & with “ten thousand shoes can show the father’s love” as last line

That's What Americans Do

Written By: Bobby and David Binion

That’s What Americans Do

VERSE
I’ve stood upon the place the towers fell, but now are gone
I’ve witnessed as the waters rise to wash away our homes
I’ve been around long enough to see disaster’s hand
Separate the ones we love, leaving scars upon our land
I’ve watched as sons and daughters fight for peace on foreign ground
Believing with conviction, “Under God” resolved to stand
While moms and dads are praying for the Lord to bring them through
Joining hearts and hands cause that’s what we’re supposed to do

Chorus
That’s what Americans do
Whatever the cost, We’ll recover the lost
I don’t have to know your name to be a brother to you
I just know I have to help, that’s what Americans do.

Bridge
Through it all I’ve seen unselfish brothers tried and true
As they raise their banner high
Here’s to the Red, White and Blue!!!
