The power of words is amazing. Words can can build up or tear down. They can bring life or dispair. Something magical happens when a lyric is combined with a melody. A good song can change an emotion, a heart and a life.

Biography

I've been writing for about twenty years. I started writing praise and worship songs for churches I was involved with. The last couple of years I've written more songs in the country genre. I grew up listening to Hank Sr., and WDDD radio in southern Illinois.

Lyrics

Horse of a Different Color

Written By: Michael Broy

Horse of a Different Color

Vs. 1
Inside each heart that’s beating, a compass points the way
A fire lights our journey, and passion fans the flame

There is a destination, that calls to each of us
It draws us ever onward, into our own purpose

Chorus
You’ve got to sail your own direction
Find your own place in the son
Set your sights on a new horizon
do what they say can’t be done
Live each day like there’ll be no other
Cherish your dream like a life long lover
Pull away from the pack and never look back
And run… like a horse of a different color

Bridge
Don’t be defined… as another imitation
Don’t be confined… by your own limitations
Don’t be denied… your power of creation
So paint your skies… with a wild imagination

Chorus
You’ve got to sail your own direction
Find your own place in the son
Set your sights on a new horizon
Do what no one else has done
Live each day like there’ll be no other
Cherish your dream like a life long lover
Pull away from the pack and never look back
And run… like a horse of a different color

I Thought of You

Written By: Michael Broy

I Thought of You (wedding version)

Vs. 1…
I thought of you today,
every moment that I was awake
As memories of you played in my mind,
each picture I saw caused me to smile
you’ve captured my heart and now my life’s forever change
so I thought of you today

I thought of you last night, in all of my dreams I held you tight
I never thought that they would come true, but soon I’ll wake up each morning next to you.
I’ve never known anyone who makes life feel so right,
so I thought of you last night

Chorus.
My love for you grows with each season,
Increasing with each passing day in time,
In every heart beat you’re my reason,
In every love song you’re my rhyme,

Vs. 2
I’ve thought of you always,
I’ve known your smile, your laugh, your beauty and your grace,
From that first kiss, somehow I knew,
I would spend the rest of my life loving only you,
Everything about you Baby takes my breathe away
Cause I’ve thought of you always

Chorus…

Vs. 3
As I think of you right now,
Feeling so blessed, I’m wondering how
Any one man can feel so much love,
I know you’re a gift from God above
I know we were meant to be, I know without a doubt
As I think of you right now,
as I think of you right now

The Greatest Thing

Written By: Michael Broy

The Greatest Thing

Vs. 1
The greatest thing I’ve ever seen, is a force beyond belief
It’s like a flood raging with hope, and like a fire out of control
I’ve seen the power of its might, it chased the darkness from my night
It made a way when I was lost,
it’s the power of the cross

Chorus 1
This power has set me free,
it’s the very reason that I live
and I breathe
The grace, the faithfulness, and mercy I’ve received,
make me believe
The greatest thing, is God’s love for me

Vs. 2
The greatest thing I’ve ever known,
is the love that drew me home
Led away by doubt and sin, but you reached out to me again and again
I heard you calling tenderly,
I felt your presence touching me
You reached out and took my hand, and broke the chains of sins demands

Chorus 2
Your love has set me free, it’s the very reason that I live and I breathe
The grace, the faithfulness, and mercy I’ve received,
make me believe
The greatest thing, is your love for me

Bridge
it’s the cup that overflows, a never ending wind that blows
It’s deeper than any sea,
it’s your love that runs to me

Repeat Chorus 2– Your love has set me free..

It's Never too Late

Written By: Michael Broy

It’s Never Too Late

Verse 1
Is it heavy on your heart,
does it weigh upon your mind
Is there something left undone, with a friend or a loved one
Is there a place you need to find…
Is there a pain that just won’t stop,
Does disappointment rule your soul,
Did you drink the bitter cup,
Does the nightmare keep you up
Did two halves not make you whole

Chorus 1
It’s never too late,
nothing’s ever in the past
If when you look into the mirror, and what you see is still unclear
And the questions seem to last
It’s never too late, to make another brand new start
To step into the great unknown, & just lay down the pain you own
And let forgiveness heal your heart
It’s never too late

Verse 2
If it came down to the end,
and the life you know was through
Tell me are you satisfied,
could you say you really tried
To do what you were meant to do
And if no one cheers you on,
will you run the race to win
Are you chasing destiny,
or will you give in to defeat
And point your finger once again

Repeat Chorus 1

Chorus 2
It’s never too late,
everything is in the past
If when you look into the mirror, and the images are clear
And the peace is there at last
It’s never too late, to make another brand new start
To step into the grace you’ve known,
and lay down the pain you own
and let forgiveness heal your heart
It’s never too late
