Over The Horizon Lyrics 

YOU MAKE ME BELIEVE

 A feast for the eyes you glorious creature
But it’s your heart, your greatest feature
You make me believe in God
You make me believe in God……You make me believe

 The way you move is a revelation
It’s got to be divine inspiration
You make me believe in God
You make me believe in God……You make me believe

 Talk about miracles…you’re all the proof I need
Your love is spiritual…makes me want to get down on my knees
Makes me want to get down…down on my knees

 Here you are in all of your splendor
Kissing me with lips warm and tender
You make me believe in God
You make me believe in God……You make me believe

I believe, I believe, I believe
You make me believe in God
You make me believe in God……You make me believe

RIDE WITH ME

Shake loose and take my hand
I can’t promise to lead you to no Promised Land
But I can help you find the road
You look so tired of going nowhere
Aren’t you curious to find out what’s over there
Are you gonna sit there or do you wanna go

 Won’t you jump into my Mustang
Hit the blacktop and let it roll
This little town is too tame
Don’t you ever wanna just lose control

Chorus: Ride with me…oh, ride with me
               Let yourself go…set yourself free
               Ride with me…ride with me

 Hop on board…I’ve got a new tank of gas
Lay back easy and let that funky music blast
I’ll take you on a trip you won’t regret
It’s one for the money…two for the road
Pull the top down…let your hair blow
Oh, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet

Don’t you know you’ve got to take a chance girl
If you ever want to satisfy your soul
Till you jump into the water
You ain’t gonna know if it’s hot or cold

Chorus        

Don’t you know you’ve got to take a chance girl
f you ever want to satisfy your soul
Till you jump into the water
You ain’t gonna know if it’s hot or cold

Chorus

LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN

Sitting in the sunshine…staring at a blue sky
I ain’t got no problems…guess I must’ve forgot ‘em
I’ve got all I’ll ever need
With you keeping me company
Here in our very own
Little piece of heaven

See the smile on my face…no longer running in that race
This ain’t exactly Easy Street…but life has never been so sweet
 I’ve got all I’ll ever need
With you keeping me company
Here in our very own
Little piece of heaven

Bridge:  Miracles are all around me
               I don’t have to look to far
               Sometimes what we’re searching for
              You find they’re in your own backyard

 Everything is all right…peaceful in the twilight
Got my angel by my side…couldn’t be more satisfied
I’ve got all I’ll ever need
With you keeping me company
Here in our very own|
Little piece of heaven…Little piece of heaven

 TURN TO ME

 Looked out my window saw him draggin’ you down the street
I wondered why do you stay with a man that treats you so mean
To me you are a star…a diamond in the rough
And a soulful girl like you…he just ain’t good enough

Chorus.: Why waste another night knowing deep down it just ain’t right
                Turn to me, Turn to me
                I’m waiting in the wings ready to give you everything
                Turn to me, Turn to me

I think about you and I have to shake my head
Baby, don’t you see your heart has been misled
Why hang around and let him hurt you more
When your dreams are waiting just outside your door

 Chorus

One man’s trash, another man’s treasure
You deserve so much better

 Chorus

 JADE

 You think you’ve seen it all
So far above you cannot fall…Jade
What is it you’re looking for?
Nothing moves you anymore…Jade

 Was there some holy moment
You tried but couldn’t capture
Made you hide your heart away?
You look till you find a flaw
Use it as the final straw…Jade

 Out your window there’s a sunny day
Your green eyes see only grey…Jade
Look closer and you will find
Heaven is on your side…Jade

What a heavy price you’re paying
In a prison of your own making
You alone hold the key
Wish I could find a way
To free you from your chains…Jade

 Bridge:  Some see the darkness
               Some see the stars
               What a precious stone you are
               What a precious stone you are

Was there some holy moment
You tried but couldn’t capture
Made you hide your heart away?
Wish I could find a way
To free you from your chains…Jade

Look closer and you will find
Heaven is on your side…Jade…Jade

ANYWHERE BUT WHERE I AM

Wish I was a river rollin’ to the sea
Wish I was the Southwind, blowin’ on a breeze
If I was an eagle I’d fly off through the clouds
Anywhere but where I am right now

I am not an innocent man… I never meant to hurt you, no
Yet there you stand… ready to cast your stone
You can play the judge

Hang my heart upside down
My soul is hungry…oh freedom, where can you be found
Anywhere but where I am right now
Anywhere but where I am right now

Br.: Locked in this confusion
       Stripped of all my pride
       Is this all just an illusion
       I can’t get free, you hold the key, let me go

Wish I was a freight train chuggin’ down the line
Wish I didn’t have to stay, stay and do my time
When that moment comes, I shall be unbound
Wings of freedom will fly me off to higher ground
Anywhere but where I am right now
Anywhere but where I am right now

 PRESSIN’ ON

 Life is like a string of  beads
Thread with wishes wants and dreams
Some are shiny… some are rust
Some are diamonds some are dust

Chorus.: Keep pressin’on… eyes on the prize
                Pressin’ on…. one day at a time
                Pressin’ on… when the mountain is high
                Keep pressin’ on

 Grapes of wrath make bitter wine
Sweet forgiveness comes in time
Whatever happens along the way
We thank the Lord for one more day

Chorus

 Bridge:  They say that truth is the child of time
               We’ll learn the answer somewhere down the line

 Chorus

OVER THE HORIZON

I never saw you slipping over the horizon
Yet I knew you’d set your sail to the sea
You wore this world like a chain around your ankle
Though I cry for you, I do believe you’re free

We ran together, Indians and pirates
Smoked cherry blend in our Dr.Graybow pipes
And in our uniforms we marched and were handsome
Just got tighter, every time we had a fight

Bridge.:  Years take their toll
               Dreams come and go
              Of all the things we’re after
              Love is all that matters

 Last time I saw you we talked about Jesus
We laughed and toasted to the good times and the bad
Now you’ve sailed off somewhere over the horizon
You were a brother I never had
Now you’re off somewhere beyond the horizon
And the Lord has taken hold of your hand

JESUS IS NO STRANGER

Sometimes it’s a cruel world we live in
Heartache and trouble everywhere
People all around are asking
Does anyone really care?
There is someone whose love is true
He knows just what you’re going through
Jesus is no stranger…to the blues

Lost in this wilderness we travel
His footprints lead us to the stream
Every temptation that we battle
He paid the price to set us free
Betrayed by a close friend
Whipped and bruised
All for the likes of me and you
Jesus is no stranger
Jesus is no stranger…to the blues

Bridge:  He understands when no one else can
               Don’t you know, he’s seen it all
               Now he’s standing there…arms open wide
               Run to him…he’s taken the fall

So, do we live our lives defeated
Acting weary and lowdown
That ol’ devil…he’s a cheater
Don’t you let him steal your crown
Hold on to one whose love is true
He knows just what you’re going through
Jesus is no stranger
Jesus is no stranger
Jesus is no stranger…to the blues

SOUL SURVIVORS

We’ve seen some stormy weather
Many times… no hope in sight
Somehow we stayed together
When things got crazy, girl, we held on tight

Could’ve let ourselves go overboard
Given up and given in
But we had too much worth living for
You and I found our second wind

Chorus.: We’re soul survivors
               Could’ve drowned from all the tears we cried
               We’re soul survivors
                Our love is still alive

Remember the time I was as good as gone
Just a fool blinded by his pride
In my weakness you stood strong
You helped me see right where I belong

Chorus

REAL THING

I…I haven’t felt this way in years
I’m walking around…a smile from ear to ear
I’d almost given up on love
But you’re about to change my mind
This could be the real thing
This could be the real thing
It could be the real thing…this time

You…you are an angel, I’m convinced
You flew down and pulled me off the fence
All my fears are fading fast
I’m leaving the past behind
This could be the real thing
This could be the real thing
It could be the real thing…this time 

Bridge:  When I hold you in my arms
               There’s no doubt in my heart
               You are all I’ve waited for
               So ready for the real thing

Once…I had a bad case of the blues
Now…I’ve got a whole new attitude
Sunshine breaking through the clouds
Showing me a beautiful sign
This could be the real thing
This could be the real thing
It could be the real thing…this time
