Lyrics

Fine China

Written By: Lonny Meinecke

Childhood wishes
Like fine china dishes
Get shattered as we grow old
Time softly moves
As our little girl's shoes
Get outgrown just as fast as they're sold
I really think God cries
When He sees our children die
If they're going to God
Why does it hurt so bad?

We blame each other
When we discover
Our child has some disease
Filling with hate
Pointing fingers at Fate
We're forced to wait helplessly
How do you answer back?
When she cries out, "Mom and Dad!
If I'm going to God
Why does it hurt so bad?"

Picking up toys would be
A pleasure
If only you were here
Suddenly odds and ends
Are treasured friends
Reminding us through tears...

Tense quiet meals
An empty chair steals
Our glances from time to time
Telephone rings
Some old friend talks of things
And asks if our daughter's fine...
One of us drops the phone
The other cries out, "God no!
Nobody's 'fine'
That's why it hurts so bad"
Terry why did you die?
And why did it hurt so bad?

Wishing It Were I

Written By: Lonny Meinecke

Held within your arms
My life seems small
Touch me and I cannot think at all
Feeling your soft hands
Caress my sides
The universe diminishes in size

I'm seeing you
And touching you
But it's not me inside
My life is bound
Within the sound
I'm hearing you play my guitar
And wishing it were I...

Loving you's no crime
Still I've no part
I'm judged without a trial
By your heart
I've held it in so long
I feel no pain
Instead my eyes cloud over
And it rains...
God, how it rains

I'm seeing you
And touching you
But it's not me inside
My life is bound
Within the sound
I'm hearing you play my guitar
And wishing it were I...

Take Me Back to Narnia

Written By: Lonny Meinecke

Taking a trip through the wardrobe
The youngest child shall lead the way
Making my way through a forest
While our world gently slips away
Suddenly I see a lamppost
But someone took away the fawn
Quick Sons of Adam and Daughters of Eve
We're all needed in Narnia

Take me back (right back)
To Narnia
Take me back
I hear the Lion roar
Take me back (right back)
I hear the children calling
Aslan! (Aslan) Oh, Aslan! (Aslan)
Aslan! (Aslan) Oh, Aslan! (Aslan)

I'm on a ship on a voyage
Across the endless Eastern Sea
Searching for Lost Lords with Caspian
Fulfilling dreams with Reepicheep
I once dreamed I was a dragon
Till Aslan taught me how to love
I could be happy on two legs or one
If the road is in Narnia!

Take me back (right back)
To Narnia
Take me back
I hear the Lion roar
Take me back (right back)
I hear the children calling
Aslan! (Aslan) Oh, Aslan! (Aslan)
Aslan! (Aslan) Oh, Aslan! (Aslan)

Sleep Sweet Reepicheep

Written By: Lonny Meinecke

All your life you've tried
Little knight
To be someone's star
Courage needs not size
Little knight
Look how brave you are

Time will remember
Hearts as big as yours

Sleep, cavalier
Aslan is near
Sweet are the lilies
Growing from His tears

You've watched eagles soar
Little knight
Wishing you could fly
Glory is not war
Little knight
Vict'ry's won inside

Heroes are warriors
Whose heart is their sword

Sleep, cavalier
Aslan is near
Sweet are the lilies
Growing from His tears

Fin de l'Hiver

Written By: Lonny Meinecke

Chalice of sunlight
Spills warmth on the treeline
Sadness is melting
To rivers of joy
Shafts of pure hope everywhere...
Fin de l'hiver!

New life is waking
Hearts thaw from their aching
Eagles are singing
Like never before
Musical smiles fill the air...
Fin de l'hiver!

Misery reigned
For eons of winter
While she drove a sleigh
Of snow

Cold and afraid
Our friends all betrayed
Till Spring came
With Aslan's glow!

Legions of sunshine
Have vanquished the winter
Armies of healing
Deliv'ring our hearts
Freedom you've banished despair!
Fin de l'hiver!
Fin de l'hiver...
Fin de l'hiver...
Fin de l'hiver...

Lions and Unicorns

Written By: Lonny Meinecke

Aslan I love you I do
Though I know I have never met you
I don't have to see you
To know that you're there
I don't have to feel you
To know that you care
I just call your name
And wherever I am
Somehow you're always there

Lions are true
Unicorns too
I don't need eyes
To see
How can I prove
Aslan I love you!
Please let me find
You're real...

Even my friends are so cruel
They call my fantasies bull
Every day I fight for the right to believe
Every night I try not to cry, desperately
I just know you exist
And I promise you this
Someday, I'll prove you're real

Lions are true
Unicorns too
I don't need eyes
To see
How can I prove
Aslan I love you!
Please let me find
You're real...
