Lyrics

I'll Be Inside

Written By: Derek Wians

I'll be gone some day so far away,
And you'll still be here, here without me.
And you'll wonder where I am,
Yeah, you'll wonder where I am.
But I'm right here next to you.

I'll be inside, I'll be inside
Deep inside your heart, where we'll never be apart.
I'll be inside, I'll be inside
And You'll never be alone, I wouldn't leave you on your own

You'll forget about me, you'll move on.
There'll be times when you don't even remember
that place we called home
You'll be moving on, You'll be staying strong,
And I'll be right here next to you.

I'll be inside, I'll be inside
Deep inside your heart, where we'll never be apart.
I'll be inside, I'll be inside
And You'll never be alone,
I wouldn't leave you on your own

My Faith Is Strong

Written By: Dennis Wians



MY FAITH IS STRONG

verse 1
I can feel your very presence leading me
Down a road I've never traveled
It's where You're taking me

I may not understand, 'cause it isn't clear
But I know You've got a plan, There's a reason here

chorus
My faith is strong in You, I believe in everything You do,
If by my hands Your Will be done,
I will prove my Faith is strong.

verse 2
Just when we think we"ve, got our life all, syncronized,
Then we learn that if You're not in it, we're just out of time.
Lead us Lord, we're lost without You
Our mere existance is all about You

chorus
My faith is strong in You, I believe in everything You do,
If by my hands Your Will be done,
I will prove my Faith is strong.

My faith is strong in You, I believe in everything You do,
If by my hands Your Will be done,
I will prove my Faith is strong.

My faith is strong in You, I believe in everything You do,
If by my hands Your Will be done,
I will prove my Faith is strong.

Strong in You.

If There’s No You in Us

Written By: Dennis Wians

If There’s No You in Us

Like the water at Niagara Falls
Like a speeding car into a wall
The simple things that overwhelm
This is what my heart felt.
Inside me, this empty void remains
Like a canyon that’s echoing your name

If there's no you in us, then this rebel in my soul,
If there's no U in us, has nowhere else to go.
If there's no you in us, Life has no meaning
If there's no U in us, I gasp for air, it’s you I'm breathing

I run so much my knees are weak
I run from what is haunting me
I should confront it face to face
A mirror seems the best place
I’ve put aside my pride, I can’t ignore this anymore
You are what my heart pounds for.

If there's no you in us, then this rebel in my soul,
If there's no U in us, has nowhere else to go.
If there's no you in us, Life has no meaning
If there's no U in us, I gasp for air, it’s you I'm breathing

The Other F-WORD

Written By: Dennis Wians

The Other F Word

It’s not my intention... to offend, but to be a fisher of men
To seek out Christians... not yet to be,
for I hear my Lord saying, Bring them to me.
He said bring them to Me

It’s not about anger, It’s all about trust
The other F word’s just not used enough
Believing we’re all here, for a purpose,
to live without it, just seems worthless
If you don’t understand, what you’ve heard,
Faith... is the other F word

If there's a time you're scared of losing faith,
Scared is only Sacred with 2 things out of place
It's all up to You to... make things right
Restoring order... to your life.
All you got to do.... is what He ask's of you

It’s not about anger, It’s all about trust
The other F word’s just not used enough
Believing we’re all here, for a purpose,
to live without it, just seems worthless
If you don’t understand, what you’ve heard,
Faith... is the other F word

It's all there in black and white
Word of Mouth becomes a way of life...Faith.

The Road Less Taken

Written By: Dennis Wians

The Road Less Taken

Guide me, Lord, in the choice I'm makin'
Let Your Spirit fill me , let my soul awaken
It's You alone, I put all my faith in
As I travel down the road less taken

The first steps are the hardest down the road less taken
but I know it's worth it 'cause my heart is aching
It's what we live for, but it's taking chances
I hear You calling, and here's my answer

Guide me, Lord, in the choice I'm makin'
Let Your Spirit fill me , let my soul awaken
It's You alone, I put all my faith in
As I travel down the road less taken

I 'll keep my promise, to always obey Thee
I looked at what I did with . . . the gifts You gave me
and I guess my life will need some re-arranging
You're my hero, so come and save

Guide me, Lord, in the choice I'm makin'
Let Your Spirit fill me , let my soul awaken
It's You alone, I put all my faith in
As I travel down the road less taken

Let Me Give My Heart

Written By: Dennis Wians

Let Me Give My Heart
Let me give my heart, it belongs to you.
Every beat it takes brings me closer to where you are,
Because I need you, I breathe you,
Without you, it’s too cruel of a world.
So let me impart, I will give my heart.

I have lived most days, giving away the attention you deserve
and I made no time, busy with life, and it only made things worse.
as I stand here now, my soul cries out.

Let me give my heart, it belongs to you.
Every beat it takes brings me closer to where you are,
Because I need you, I breathe you,
Without you, it’s too cruel of a world.
So let me impart, I will give my heart.

I don't know why, what's important in life falls victim to disregard
But I promise I will never deny how tremendous you really are
as I stand here now, my soul cries out.

Let me give my heart, it belongs to you
Every beat it takes, brings me closer to where you are,
because I need you, I breathe you
Without you, it’s too cruel of a world.
So let me impart, I will give my heart.

I need you, I breathe you
Without you, it’s too cruel of a world.

InDecision

Written By: Dennis Wians

InDecision

Caught in a web of conflicting choices
Led by contradicting voices
(Too much) pressure from your peers,
(Too much) I’ve had it up to here.
So I’m gonna make a resolution
I’ve come up with a clear solution
(Why) it’s so hard to see
(What) God wants for me.

Be strong… when the pressure’s on
And if you’re torn, don’t you dare conform
Reach out, when in doubt
Don’t give in… because of… Indecision.

Always think about the consequences.
It’s not easy walking fences.
Don’t just go along, if you can’t tell right from wrong.
Learn how to handle any situation
Test drive life without frustration
You will overcome, anything or anyone.

Be strong… when the pressure’s on
And if you’re torn, don’t you dare conform
Reach out, when in doubt
Don’t give in… because of… Indecision.

Hang with some friends who feel the same way
Learn that saying No is okay

You Move My Heart

Written By: Dennis Wians

You Move My Heart

Words are not enough, To describe your love,
You've made it more like an art form.
It changes and evolves, like a sky full of clouds
The way they move about is how You... move my heart

Through Your eyes,
I stare into a reflection of what I am to you
You look at life how it can be when
We can love like you again.

Words are not enough, To describe your love,
You've made it more like an art form.
It changes and evolves, like a sky full of clouds
The way they move about is how You... move my heart

If you paint your love on a canvas frame
Black and white would look the same
The truth you give to all of us
Is we can live, the way you love

Words are not enough, To describe your love,
You've made it more like an art form.
It changes and evolves, like a sky full of clouds
The way they move about is how You... move my heart

You move my heart

I Can Do Anything

Written By: Dennis Wians

I Can Do Anything

I can, I can do, I can do anything (x2)
if the source of my strength is You (x2)

My name is David, I’m small and stocky
My future was looking kind of rocky.
My problem was bigger, my odds were slimmer
With a rock and a sling, I came out a winner

I can, I can do, I can do anything (x2)
if the source of my strength is You (x2)

You made me a leader, when I used to count sheep.
With a shepherd’s staff, I parted the seas.
I helped your people cross the desert sand
From bondage in Egypt to the promised land.

Joshua here, I took over for Moses, cause
Crossing the desert was no bed of roses
With a few of God’s miracles, I did well
I was there when the walls of Jericho fell.

I can, I can do, I can do anything (x2)
if the source of my strength is You (x2)

My name is Simon, but they called me Peter,
I acted out, and became a good leader
Raising Tabitha, healing Aeneas,
And I saved them all in the name of Jesus.

I once was an enemy, but I lost sight
Ananias helped me to see the light.
I could heal with the hankerchiefs and aprons I gave
But my greatest gifts were the journeys I made.

I can, I can do, I can do anything (x2)
if the source of my strength is You (x2)

There were all kinds of heroes due to God’s glory
You only heard a few of the stories.
In all Bible history past to present,
our strength lies in Jesus, 24:7

I can, I can do, I can do anything (x2)
if the source of my strength is You (x2)

As You Are

Written By: Dennis Wians

As You Are
chorus
Search here within your heart to see God Loves you as you are.
Search here within your heart to see God Loves you as you are.

When you need answers that can’t be found, don’t let SIN drag you down
Find STRENGTH from WITHIN…Let FAITH lift you up to HIM
chorus

If pain or suffering is all you’ve felt, and you can’t take the cards you’re dealt
For worse or better… rich or poor, remember…no one’s ever loved you more.
chorus

It’s sometimes hard to understand, how we fit within God’s plan
Scripture answers this concern, This is where You’ll find “The Word”
chorus

Bridge
You've read all kinds of letters, and still you seem to doubt.
If you don't get the picture, we will spell it out.

chorus x 2
So if your answers have gone unheard, You should find “The Word”.

The Way

Written By: Dennis Wians

V1
The way the sun makes each day new…
That’s the same way I need you.
The way the rain helps all things grow…
That’s what you do for my soul.

That’s the way I see you. That’s the way I feel you now.
CH
The way your life has opened eyes
That’s the way you open mine.
You’re the reason that I feel loved,
And that’s because, that’s because…
That’s the way I need you in my life.
V2
The way the wind can carry sound, is
How you hold my heart right now.
The way that birds can roam the sky, is
How you make me feel inside.

That’s the way I see you. That’s the way I feel you now.
CH
The way your life has opened eyes
That’s the way you open mine.
You’re the reason that I feel loved,
And that’s because, that’s the way…

The way your life has opened eyes
That’s the way you open mine.
You’re the reason that I feel loved,
And that’s because, that’s because…
That’s the way I need you in my life.

The way the sun makes each day new,
That’s the same way I need you.
