They stood on the beach
The sun going down
A bottle of red wine
On the ground
Tomorrow he’s leaving her
Going to war

She holds his hands
Laughs when he smiles
They both wish that time
Would stop for a while
She feels the ring on his finger
They close their eyes
She says:

Chorus:
Dance with me
Hold me tight
Remember this in the lonely nights
Know that I will be waiting right here you’ll see
But for know…
Just dance with me

3
The miles apart
Get harder each day
He fights the fight
She kneels to pray
She dreams tomorrow
He will walk thru the door

One day in the mail
He gets a surprise
She’s having a Baby
She hopes with his eyes
He’s coming in six months
She hopes he'll be home by then
Til then

Chorus:
Dream of me
Hold me tight
Remember this in the lonely nights
Know that we will be waiting right here you’ll see
But for now,
Just dream of me

One day on patrol
He came under attack
He caught some shrapnel
Down in his back
The doctor said
He may never walk again

As she rushed to his room
He sat in his chair
She gave him his son
Her eyes filled with tears
He said, darling it won't be long
Til you

Dance with me
Hold me tight
I remembered you in the lonely nights
I knew you'd be waiting right here for me

She took his hands and said,
Dance with me
Hold me tight
How I longed for you in the lonely nights
You knew we would be waiting, waiting right here
Darling,, now come dance with me

1
I want to laugh like you
Cry like you
See the joy in the eyes of a child
Like you

Want to love too deep
Go too far
Point the way to find who you are
I want to go the extra mile
Rest on your shoulder for a while

Chorus:

I want to be like you
Love the way you love
Trust everything you do
I want to be like you
Know your Holy Presence deep in me
Feel your gentle Spirit set me free
Lord, with all my heart I want to be
Like you…

2
I want to love like you
Care like you
Give somebody hope in their heart
Like you

I want to hold on tight

Not let go
Feel you changing me in my soul
I want to go the extra mile
Rest on your shoulder for a while

Chorus

Calvary

Written By: Bryan D. Jones

Calvary
Words and music by: Bryan D. Jones
Like the whisper of the wind

Like the stillness of a prayer

All of heaven watched as he was hanging there

With his final breathe

It was finished on that day

God had come to earth to give his life away

To Give his life away

Chorus:

On Calvary….

The king of glory died

The creator of the universe was crucified

His blood was shed

To rescue you and me

When Jesus surrendered all

On Calvary, oh, oh, oh

On Calvary, yeah, yeah, yeah
2).

No one will ever know

God's torture on that day

When the lamb was slain, the ransom paid

The Holy Son of God

Died for sinful men

He lay down his life, so we could live again

We can be born again.

Chorus:

Bridge:

Love beckons from the cross

Reaching out to the broken

out to the broken

Love beckons from the cross

Reaching out to the broken

out to the broken

Love beckons from the cross

Reaching out to the broken

Everybody's broken

Chorus


Like the whisper of the wind

Like the stillness of a prayer

All of heaven watched as he was hanging there
