The Song

Written By: Taylor Fletcher

We sing the songs that people sang
Got them melodies like
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Sing the songs that people sang
Got them melodies like
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Ah the melodies go
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

We sing the songs that people sang
Got them melodies like
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Sing the songs that people sang
Got them melodies like
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
The melodies go
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Sing your songs of freedom
Praise the God of Heaven
Mellow down easy child
And don't worry but just love
Don't worry just love
Don't worry just love

So turn the music up
Louder than the pain
We'll sift through it all
And see what remains
You'll find that
His love endures forever
Even through the bad times
And that stormy weather
Singin' songs to The King
Offered up as a humble offering
And if you know what I mean
Lift your mind, your soul,
Your voice, your song and sing

Sing your songs of freedom
Praise the God of Heaven
Mellow down easy child
And don't worry but just love
Don't worry just love
Ya don't worry just love

We sing the songs that people sang
Got them melodies like
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Sing the songs that people sang
Got them melodies like
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Ah the melodies go
oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

We sing the songs
Of the meek and the pure
Persecuted and the poor
For those who mourn
And the merciful
For those who make peace
And all of yall who are still hungry
Wantcha sing with me
To Him for our strength

Sing your songs of freedom
Praise the God of Heaven
Mellow down easy child
And don't worry but just love
Don't worry just a...

Follow You into Your garden
Shed my skin at the gate
We'll lie naked in our souls
For Your garden bears
No fruit from hate
Just walk hand in hand
Together with You again my friend
Would mean more to me
Than eternity

Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again
Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again
Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again
Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again

I've nearly forgotten my first love
Perfect and from up above
Oh but love has never left me
Like Hosea stands beside me
And a Gomer I may be
But love covers all and saves me
And over seventy times seven
You've left the ninety-nine
To rescue me everytime

Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again
Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again
Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again
Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again

'cause it's crazy the way
This world moves
And I can't imagine
Livin' it here without you
'cause it's crazy the way
This world moves
And I can't imagine
Livin' it here without you
'cause it's crazy the way
This world moves
And I can't imagine
Livin' it here without you
'cause it's crazy the way
This world moves
And I can't imagine
Livin' it here without you oh...

Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again
Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again
Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again
Pick me up Lord
'cause I want to be in love again

Much More than a Dream

Written By: Taylor Fletcher

A prophet who speaks in rhyme
Leans up against a street sign
His card board
Weighed with the divine
Telling me it's time
To believe
That reality
Is much more than a dream

Lord have mercy on me
For who I am, who I was,
And I will be
I can't make two plus two
Equal three
I can't make the lost man free
Because reality
Is much more than the

Dreams we perceive
Than the minds that bind
The limits of time
Than the pain that we to often see
Than the joy that longs to be conceived
Like the rush of a summer day
Or a pretty lady walking your way
It all come together in me
Just like the birds and the birds

I got me a seed
Planted it to watch it grow
Loved it for what it gave to me
Still so much about it I don't know
'Cause reality
Is much more than it seems

I read a book, now I know it all
So I'm right and your wrong
'Cause I know everything
I went to college
Arguing that way
Is such a waste of knowledge
'Cause reality
Is much more than the

Dreams we perceive
And the minds that bind
The limits of time
Than the pain that we to often see
Than the joy that longs to be conceived
Like the rush of a summer day
Or a pretty lady walking your way
It all come together in me
Oh yes it will
Just like the dreams we perceive
And the minds that bind
The limits of time
Than the pain that we to often see
Than the joy that longs to be conceived
Like the rush of a summer day
Or a pretty lady walking your way
It all come together in me
Just like the birds and the birds
Just like those birds and the birds
