Lyrics

A City Called Heaven

Written By: Monique Delagraentiss

(verse)
They bore a brilliant flag
And hiked through the sandy dunes
'Went out to see that city
To catch it before it blew
As they marched along the path
They could hear each cry and boom
Every step they said a prayer
For all the folks they knew

(chorus)
One for the fathers
Who would lose their sons today
One for the enemy
Who was charged to just obey
And one for the little child
Who'd grow up without a name
And never know that city they called heaven

(verse)
It stood upon the rock
And protected all that came
Far off the news had gone
That it would fall today
Everywhere around the land
They fell upon their knees
And said a little prayer
For the folks they'd never see

(chorus)
One for the fathers
Who would lose their sons today
One for the enemy
Who's charge was to obey
And one for the little child
Who'd grow up without a name
And never know that city they called heaven

(vamp)
Missionaries came to town
'Told them Christ is king
'Taught them how to build their walls
'Taught them everything

(chorus)
They said one for the fathers
Who would lose their sons today
One for the enemy
Who was charged to just obey
And one for the little child
Who'd grow up without a name
And never know that city they called heaven

No, they'll never know that city
Called heaven

Oh we'll never know that city
Called heaven

Beggin' The Blue

Written By: Monique-Elise Delagraentiss

Beggin' The Blue

Intro
I’ve have tried oh so many times to get off of this porch.
While I’ve tried oh so many tears have slid down in reproach of my life.
But I’m leaning over the rail.
And I’m looking up at a sky so blue my eyesight fails, to see the truth…

Verse

Sitting on my front porch beggin' the Blue.
Oh won't you please, come rescue me.
Cover me with your true point of view.
Oh won't you please, come rescue me.

Chorus

Cause I'm hurting in my soul.
And I'll soon lose all control.
But if there’s a way to make it
Through this day... begging the Blue...
I'm beggin' the blue.
O'h won't you please, come rescue me.

Verse

I left life behind when the telephone rang.
Oh won't you please, come rescue me.
I am not used to this sort of thing.
Oh won't you please, come rescue me.

Chorus

Cause I'm troubled in my mind.
And I see no reason why.
But if there’s a way to make it
Through this day... begging the Blue...
Then I'm beggin' the Blue.
Oh won't you please, come rescue me.
