Lyrics

Onward Upward Out Of Here

Written By: Michael Heilman

Bits and Pieces coming together
Forming something that could be forever
in a fraction of a split second of time
without a purpose or reason or ryhme
Outer space or out of time
can we know the How & Why
the formula of tomorrows' hope
reaches farther than a telescope
Chorus
Faster than the speed of light
only glory shines so bright
elements at the Mercy seat
melt away at wondrous heat
Onward upward out of here
the whole vast Universe
spoken by our God so clear
alpha omega last & first
2. Lovers of Science
think they can unlock
the spark of life
as gears of a clock
but the Grand design
of a unified symmetry
could only be made
by one with a key
Outerspace or out of momentum
can we ever reach perfection
for those who will
hear and believe
forgiveness is the
height achieved
Chorus repeats
3. Lovers of secrets
think they can reveal
but only the Bible
contains the seals
Words of hope of brighter days
the thrust that takes my
breath away
our Universe the stars above
can not compare to Jesus' Love
the gravity of the meaning of life
all comes down to Jesus Christ
Bridge
Fuel our dreams and visions
to understand our commission
teaching all nations
under the sun, Lord
you are Lord and Host
of the stars above
Chorus repeats

The Fire Inside

there's a place in side your greatest art within you starts
the inner light the Fire inside

Your Love Goes On

Written By: Mike Heilman

Life goes by so quickly
& you don't see things my way
tomorrow's on its way around
we all get ours someday

vastly different vantage points your view is yours and mine is mine
How can we come together if we can't see eye to eye

going nowhere without love
do unto others kind of love
love can give your heart a little song

Chorus
Your Love goes on your love goes on your love goes on,
on & on & on & on & on

Time goes by so quickly
and what remains when your gone
did you make a difference
in the life of someone else

for years now I've been teaching
love , count your blessings
kind of love ,
love can give your heart a little song
Chorus
Our love goes on our love goes on
our love goes on, on & on & on & on

We can work it out , I want to work it out , your love goes on, our love goes on

Footprints

Written By: Mike Heilman

We were walking in the sand
you were with me holding my hand
holding on to me tenderly
I was looking up at the sky
didn't know what it would be like
on that night
We were building castles in the sand
working on our greatest plans
knowing blessings would come our way some day
Chorus
then the storms came
and the crashing waves
and the wind upon the sea
was bouncing you & me everywhere

Then I looked up with a tear in my eye
You knew it was me crying
for help unto the Lord
Oh Lord were you
standing next to me
I felt oh so alone
so far from home
far from home
Chorus
and the storms came
& the crashing waves
and the wind upon the sea
was bouncing you & me everywhere
Bridge
You picked me up and you took me where you wanted me to be
safe & warm 'neath
the crashing waves of the sea
and you saved me & rescued me
and blew your spirit through my life
Coda
You were there right next to me
through the crashing of the sea
you & me , you & me, you & me

Starting out the week with a bang

Written By: Mike Heilman

Hallelujah
Open up the Bible
words of gold you'll find
Faith as a Journey
unlocks more doors with a guide
coming together rejoicing communion with the saints
compassion in action
every day all ways in Jesus Name
Listen with the angels sing
praises to the King of kings

Chorus
I was glad when they said unto me
let us go into the house of the Lord
let us go into the house of the Lord
let us go into the house of the Lord
we've got songs, hymns, and songs of thanks
We're starting out the week with a bang

Shall we gather together
in each day all the more
as You teach us to be
Your Glorious Church Lord
Leading us to those green pastures
beside the still waters
thanking You for the care you take
as the Master Potter
Chorus
Bridge
And the weekend makes it all worth
working once again
You lift me up lift me up
You pick me up and You carry me
when I need to be carried
Back into the House of the Lord

Yearning for a reason
the meaning of life
our trust foolisheness
to the wisdom of the wise
we believe we have the keys
to mansions in the skies
We're going onward & upward in time
we're going onward & upward in time

The Grand Design

Written By: Mike Heilman

Intricate and Beautiful
are some words that I can say
but there's nothing that can compare to the design
You've made over our heads
delicate and wonderful are only words I can compare to You
the Truth the Spirit of Love
Your design Your plans
by the work of Your hands
intricate and beautiful
delicate and wonderful
Chorus
this world You've set our feet upon
oh what poetry it could be
the prince of this world isn't God
we're caught in Adam's legacy
there is healing in your words Lord
pleasant words as honeycomb
teach us all to be your church Lord
sweet to the soul
health to the bones
II.
The reflection on a pool of water
the beauty of the sky
the power the sun may bring us
the stars in the night
revolving moon and planets
in their orbits reply
to the words planned
from the creation of life
Bridge
and the time passes by
in the motions of the grand design
and the rime passes by
in the motions of the grand design
Chorus repeats and fades out

Living Proof

Written By: Michael Heilman

Living Proof

written by Michael Heilman

When I wake up in the Morning
Sunshine stream across my face
and I start to remember another place
another time
I think about it lightly
and go about my day
to while away the hours of work & play
and I think of all the love you gave me
and how you chase my blues away
joined together forever every day
Chorus
Rest in your arms & slumber
peacefully and dream of you
Heaven is as close to me as you are
Living proof
my heart's desire right before my eyes
your love is greater than I realize

From the morning to the dawn
dream on into the weekend long
flying into the clouds above baby
I awaken from a dream
as quiet as a whisper
safe inside your love
my dreams come true
Chorus repeats

Awaken in a pleasant state
thanks for all of the love you make
my days are brighter now because of you
listen to your love in tune
gives me hope and laughter too
dancing cheek to cheek
out on the crystal sea
Chorus repeats
improvised ending

Essence of Truth

Written By: MIchael Heilman

You shine your light on me
You add color to everything I see
spinning around this terrestrial ball
I can't help but think
of the wonder of it all
spinning around like a planet from the Sun
a tether to another star
but not just another one
we may be the only world containing life
how profound the day
is separated from the night
Middle 8
we keep going & going
and going with You Lord
going and going
you're the essence of truth
we keep going & going
going with You Lord
going & going
you're the essence of truth yeah
Chorus
Images of You in Your words Lord
Images of You in my minds eye
Images of Your truth Lord
in my heart
as I look into the night sky

Spinning around like the Earth
we're always turning
in Nature & new Birth
we'll always be learning
like the energy of creation
you can't do it without
using your imagination
& trying to be devout
where one or more are
gathered together
God is never far
a Planet afixed a tether
to another star
You shine your light on me
You add color to every thing I see
spinning around this terrestrial ball
I can't help but think of
the wonder of it all
we're going & going with You Lord
going & going
You're the essence of truth

Spinning around like a planet from the sun
atethered to another star but not just another one

Discography

My 1st published work was 100 copies an EP on Cassette Tape Feb '95 with Twinfinity songs,
The New Wine, Take Care of My Little Girl, Footprints, & Song of the Bridegroom. & after 2 years of working with
Ron Nagel in his Home Studio -
October '95 (c)1995 my 1st album was released
"Momentum" CDs were delayed by Zomax until Dec.6 '95. The Band formed shortly thereafter.
Besides Mike as lead Singer and Songwriter, friends Nancy Larson on Keyboards,Steve Puumala various Guitars & Drums,Grant Penning on Bass Guitar, & Jeff Berletic on Guitar were the main Players at our New Union shows.

1999 Mike spent a couple months at Angel Beach studio surrounded by the talent of Bruce Kyser, Brad Heck , Tony Hernandez, Blake Anderson,
Mike's uncle Marty Heilman, J.D. Steele, & Marc Ziegenhausen.

Resulting in " Beyond The Edge of Time " (c) 1999
Awarded a spot in the 1999 Mars Music Top 5 regional
"Quit Your Day Job " contest when it was first released.

After 3 Mission trips to Ghana Africa as a volunteer teacher, I released my 3 rd album to include songs
I liked to perform but yet unreleased along with the Background tracks from " Momentum "
resulting in " Rockin' Gems Rarities 2007 " -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've also published the " Plenty of Music " compilation CD for the MACS group 2002
& 2009 Cross-Section for MACS compilation # 2 including 6 Artists from a Sonicbids Contest

Also on CD are the KFAI MACS Spotlight on the

And the Golden Star FM Interview of Mike in Swedru Ghana Africa from August of 2006.

One of my Favorite works is of a class I taught 5th Graders at Kenwood School (Mpls) in 2003.
" The Riversongs " collaboration is what we shared after 2 weeks of short instruction and recording
the Fun the Kids were having at the Time.

Set List

I have some songs with Christian themes and some without. some are more fitting than others depending on the potential for Ministry of the Moment & of the venue. I rarely do cover songs for an audience. That may change when I form a band again.
