Lyrics

Cedar of Lebanon

Written By: Sam Fasano III

I want to grow like a cedar of Lebanon, with my roots planted deep in the ground.
I’m gonna build me a house way up on the rocks,
Let the water rush all around me now.

It’s so easy to get discouraged, in this fast paced world we live in.
With our bills stacking up our faith breaking down,
We wonder were to begin.

For once I traveled aimlessly, not sure where I was bound
I finally let you rescue me, now my feet are planted firm on the ground.

Chorus
I want to grow like a cedar of Lebanon, with my roots planted deep in the ground
I’m gonna build me a house way up on the rocks,
Let the water rush all around me now.

Bridge
The rain descended and the floods came.
And the wind beat upon the house but it fell not.
For it was built upon a rock.

Are you changing the way it was meant to be or are you giving it to the lord?
His ship is sailing on your sea and he wants you to come aboard.

Now the rain may ruin a child’s day but it could make a farmer’s field grow.
And the wind will stir the dust all around but watch it make a sail boat go.
Chorus

Storm in the Desert

Written By: Sebastian Fasano III

Eagles flying overhead
Engines burning orange and red
Children cry as mothers search for shelter
The streets are lonely the night is cold
See the soldier’s young and old
As they take arms to protect the city

(Chorus)
There's a storm in the desert tonight
Nowhere to run nowhere to hide
Oh Israel they've got their sights on you

Now the missiles are reigning
It’s hard to believe
Sirens sounding in Tel Aviv
Many miles away the ground troops
Wait the call
Fear can be seen on the faces
That dares helpless father stands
Fists clenched in the air
He cries to his god
Please help us now

(Chorus)

There's a storm in the desert tonight
Nowhere to run nowhere to hide
Oh Israel they've got their sights on you
There's a storm in the desert the sands on fire
News is coming over the wire
We're fighting proud red white and blue

Now they march down the streets
With signs in the air
Will you turn your back do you even care
What about the soldiers willing to die for freedom
(Sweet freedom)
Don't turn away they need us now
Find it in your heart somehow
keep em’ in your prayers and welcome them
With open arms
There's a storm in the desert tonight

(Bridge)
Tears of love and anger
White sands are turning red
I remember the look on his face
And the last word my brother said

There's a storm in the desert tonight
Nowhere to run nowhere to hide
Oh Israel they've got their sights on you
There's a storm in the desert the sands on fire
News is coming over the wire
We're fighting proud red white and blue (Repeat)

We're fighting proud red white and blue

We're standing proud, America we love you


Just Not Fair

Written By: Sebastian Fasano III

Vs 1
Hungry tired and scared. We've been walking for miles now.

What little sleep we get, is shattered by the sounds of war.

It's not the whistles of the shells, or the thunder of the bombs.

But the children and their mother’s cry for the ones they'll never see.

(Chorus)
It's just not fair, it's just not right; to never kiss the kid’s goodnight.

Just imagine for a minute that you had no right to hold x4

your own children anymore.

Vs 2
He could not believe his ears. He could not believe his eyes.

His helpless child yelling, "Daddy come back!" as they pushed him in the car.

It's just not fair, it's just not right. He'll never kiss her again goodnight.

It seems the soldiers don't believe he has the right, to hold her anymore.

Vs 3
What we've seen here on the road is just too hard to comprehend.

I know the other side has families, separated just like ours.

How does disagreement turn to rage for what reason all this hatred?

We all serve the same God who hurt's to see his children fight.

(Chorus)
It's just not fair, it's just not right; to never kiss the kid’s goodnight.

Just imagine for a minute that you had no right to hold

your own children anymore.

It's just not fair, and it's just not right!

It's just not fair, and it's just not right!

You're My Girl

Written By: Sebastian Fasano III

I saw you frown just
A minute ago?
Was it something I said?
Well here’s something I know,
Can’t find my feet?
Check my mouth.

I love you more than
Words can say,
but sometimes words
Just get in my way but
you get every thump
of my heart.

Chorus
You’re my girl,
You’re my wife,
You’re my woman,
you’re my life
and I love you

I’m your man take my hand,
Faithful till the end
cause I need you
yes I do

Such a beautiful girl,
With a de-luscious smile.
Honey when you sleep,
I gotta stare for a while
You still knock
Me out, girl that’s
no doubt

You gave me your heart,
I gave you mine.
I looked in your eyes,
Oh’ man your fine
I promised the Lord that
This is through thick and thin


You’re my girl
You’re my wife
you’re my woman
you’re my life
and I love you


Cause it's a crazy world
what a bumpy ride.
Life is so improved when
your by my side
Suddenly, I want to do
better, now take a look
at me, I'm a real go getter

After so many years
And so many bumps
We can still go flyin
right over the humps
and you still make me feel
like a shy little boy

You’re my girl
You’re my wife
you’re my woman
you’re my life
and I love you

I’m your man take my hand
Faithful till the end
cause I need you
yes I do, yes I do yes I do yes I do need you.
