You Can Better Know Me

Written By: Tony Samuels & Mario Micheli

YOU CAN BETTER KNOW ME
(see, www.youcanbetterknowme.wordpress.com)

Prologue

This is a song of revelation that a Heavenly Father revealed to me (his child) in a time of need and assurance to relight the pathway created by a perfect sacrifice but strayed from in pursuit of worldly priorities. A personal revelation of forgiveness and clarity intended for all, namely...

“You Can Better Know Me By Knowing My People”

Intro:
Intro sung by a choir

You can better know me
You can better know me

You, can better know me by, knowing my people (repeat)

1st Verse
You can better understand
By pairing worship with the hand
Of service to the needy, and

2nd Verse
You can better realize
By seeing hardship through the eyes
Of those with hope and hopeless cries

Bridge (Sung by choir):
I am the way
I am the light
I am the truth
Revealed in my own time

3rd Verse

You can better know my will
By turning to your brother, then
Forgiving to begin again

Ending
Ending features a full choir, which starts as background singing to the lead singer and then gradually begins to crescendo until the choir takes over the main vocal and then alternates singing the following seven lines until they fade to conclude the song:

Halleluiah
I can better know You
Halleluiah
I can better know You
Halleluiah
I can better know You now
By knowing your people
End

Tell Me a Lie

Written By: Mario Micheli

Tell Me a Lie

Note: Demoed as blues but replace guitar riffs for fiddle for country Alannah Myles meets Carrie Underwood or guitar and fiddle for Wynonna or Reba. Enjoy. mm

TELL ME A LIE

TELL ME A LIE say she's your sister
Do me a favor say she's a friend
Tell me its all none of my business
TELL ME A LIE finish your sin

TELL ME A LIE -- TELL ME A LIE
TELL ME A LIE -- TELL ME A LIE
A false allegation to deny
TELL ME A LIE
then tell her goodbye

(or maybe we can try it this way)
I'll turn my back if you'll move her ashtray
and cover the hints she's shure to leave
Fill my mind with your confusion
TELL ME A LIE I will believe

TELL ME A LIE -- TELL ME A LIE
TELL ME A LIE -- TELL ME A LIE
A false allegation to deny
TELL ME A LIE.

Don’t stand there frozen, like a child
Don’t stand there frozen, choose our side
Don’t stand there frozen
Don’t stand there frozen

TELL ME A LIE -- TELL ME A LIE
TELL ME A LIE -- TELL ME A LIE
A false allegation to deny
TELL ME A LIE

TELL ME A LIE -- TELL ME A LIE
TELL ME A LIE -- TELL ME A LIE
A false allegation to deny
TELL ME A LIE

A false allegation to deny
TELL ME A LIE
then tell her goodbye

goodbye, goodbye

He Joins Her Again

Written By: Mario Micheli

HE JOINS HER AGAIN

Failing eyes/ search with abandon
all thru an empty house.
A vibrant mind’s now dull with no companion.

He was her's and she was his' for longer than time can count.
Now he suffers the years alone behind her.

But at night, every night
HE JOINS HER AGAIN

A dusty frame hangs on the wall
that her portrait lies within
his fading memory needs the reminder.

There's a broken stool that's in her room that he won't throw away.
He just sits on it for hours beside her.

And at night, every night
HE JOINS HER AGAIN

Doesn't seem any different/ she's still here with her love
there ain't no earthly burden/
they can't rise above
cuz like you and like me he's still blessed with the power to dream

And at night, every night
HE JOINS HER AGAIN
