Lyrics

The Rose I Had In Mind

Written By: John Boller

In the garden of my soul
I was searching for gold
Past the lilies, where the violets bloom
I started walking through the gentle morning dew

As I was looking up ahead
I saw a rose so broken, bleeding all it’s red
And though I tried to walk on by
I couldn’t help myself from kneeling at its side

Withered, faded, frail and torn
Rugged petals, broken thorns
Just the rose I had in mind

And as I took a second glance
I knew I didn’t come across this rose by chance
A subtle beauty, easy to ignore
Much like a hidden pearl beneath the ocean floor

Weakened, fragile, faint and cold
Nearly lifeless, yet beautiful
Just the rose I had in mind

Then I placed the rose in my hand
So overtaken by it’s grace, I could not stand
I held it close to me, I held it tight
I wouldn’t let go even if it cost my life

Wounded, beaten, bruised and scarred
Truly man, yet fully God
Just the King I had in mind

Together In My Dreams

Written By: John Boller

Lights go down, the music fades
You find me gazing in your eyes
You smile at me and whisper softly
“Shall we dance tonight?”

And so I take you by the hand
And we run, we run
To the everlasting land
Of a thousand suns
Where we dance upon the streets
As one, as one
And it’s only you and me
Together in my dreams

I’m swept away by the sight of you
Dressed in white, so beautiful
You’re everything I’ve waited for
You’re altogether wonderful

And so I take you by the hand
And we run, we run
To the everlasting land
Of a thousand suns
Where we dance upon the streets
As one, as one
And it’s only you and me
Together in my dreams

I realize it's just a dream
But please don't wake me now
