Lyrics

"Faithless Heart"

Written By: Shannon Darling


day is done - it is my will to walk alone

faded dreams - distant voices calling me

seasons change - here stands a girl

I thought I knew, I thought I knew

faithless heart, is mine

pushed you away

so untrue, am I

what is it that you see in me?

she walks away - no looking back

choices we made - leave fragile steps

that mark the way, the way back

faithless heart, is mine

pushed you away

so untrue, am I

what is it that you see in me, oh God?

what is it that you see in me, my God, my God?

how can my heart, not respond - to love so pure

how can my heart, not respond - to love so pure

how can my heart, not respond - to love so pure

how can my heart, not respond -

to love, a love so pure

hmmmm--hmmmm--oh-oh-oh, my God, my God-

"Even Now" - 9/11 NYC

Written By: Shannon Darling


Written 9/11/01 at 11:45 am, for NYC

***

Even now – even now
Even now – I will sing
Even now – even now
Even now – I will sing

When the world – looks away
When the world refuses to pray
I will sing – I will pray
I will sing and I will pray

For my hope stands firm
In the truth I learned
My Rock – will not give way

I’ll make my stand
And if I stand alone

I will sing – I will pray
I will sing and I will pray

Even now – even now
Even now – I will sing
Even now – even now
Even now – I will sing

"All His Dreams"

Written By: Shannon Darling

For Neil – my joy and delight

***

He hit the road
Light of day fades to red
Just 19
All his dreams are straight ahead

And I know this is the way it’s spose to be
Cant tell my head the things
my heart don’t wanna see
Anyway – he cant stay

This old road
I use to call it a friend
Just yesterday
Boys were kickin’ stones round the bend

And I know this is the way it’s spose to be
Cant tell my head the things
my heart don’t wanna see
Anyway – he cant stay

And the road keeps winding on and on
Turning here and turning there
It took my boy far away from me
Will this road never end? Oh-oh

And I know this is the way it’s spose to be
Cant tell my head the things
my heart don’t wanna see
Anyway – he cant stay

And the road keeps winding on and on
Turning here and turning there
It took my boy far away from me
Will this road never end? Oh-oh

He hit the road
light of day fades to red
Just 19
all his dreams are straight ahead
all his dreams are straight ahead
yeah- all his dreams are straight ahead
