All I Need is Renewal

Written By: Martin Patrick

I cannot take this anymore
This life of twisting and turning
Writhing to stay on the trail
Of so much worldly yearning

I cannot think more than I have
Of angels, demons and lust
All trying to take control of me
I don't know who I should trust

All I need is renewal
Mind, body and soul
All I need is renewal
A burning hot coal
Today is not the end of the world,
No today is not the end of the world

I cannot need more than this
The simple gift of your grace
God, you alone make life whole
You alone can ease my pains

All I need is renewal
Mind, body and soul
All I need is renewal
A burning hot coal
Today is not the end of the world,
No today is not the end of the world

You and Your Dream

Written By: Martin Patrick

Everyday you and I move closer to losing all we've gained
I guess the sun won't stop shining by our hands
but what good is the sun when mother's comfort has been stained?

Maybe I'm wrong and maybe you're right
but your ideal should not be the fight
one day it's peace and one day it's war
when your day is through, we're all sore

Liberty and freedom walk hand-in-hand calling all to peace
I guess that's the most real thing you've said so far
still I can't help but fear when fathers die for you and your dream

Maybe I'm wrong and maybe you're right
but your ideal should not be the fight
one day it's peace and one day it's war
when your day is through, we're all sore

Kiss Not Me

Written By: Martin Patrick

As I watch you stand upon the shore, like a Roman monument to heaven's door
I can hear your smile upon the breeze, like a rainbow cannonade, like a melody

The palm trees sway to keep the time, they are nature's metronome against your rhyme
As the tide recedes the seagulls call, "The time has come to put to bed," to one and all

While the sun goes down into the sea, you move close and warm yourself, as you warm me
I can feel your love against the cold, like an oracle to come as we grow old

Now old man time has slowed his gait, until nothing makes a move, pausing to wait

As the mountains kiss high heavens
As the moonbeams kiss the sea
What are all these kisses worth,
If thou kiss not me?
If thou kiss not me?
If thou kiss not me?
