1. STEP INTO THE LIGHT

    (Suzee Waters Benjamin)


(INTRO)

There is a lighthouse shining for you        

A beacon of Light … a sparkling Jewel       

There is a lighthouse calling to you                       

The darker the night ...the brighter the truth     

There is a lighthouse leading you home               

Do not despair… You’re not alone                            

    

Watchers and Holy Ones welcome those who come

To Step into the Light

We have traveled far guided by our hearts

To Step into the Light

We have lost our way

We have fallen prey

To the dark side of life

Now we’ve come again

Side by side as friends

To Step into the Light    


*(CHORUS)

Step into the Light

Step into the Light   

Step Right Up…Accept the Love            

Step into the Light                          


We are our brothers’ keepers

We are sister seekers

We are children of the light

We’ve been tossed and we’ve been torn                         

But we’re on the road back home

To Step into the Light


*(CHORUS) …repeat twice


Take responsibility for who you want to be            

Step into the Light             

Everything you say and do is really up to you      

To Step into the Light            

We have come to live in Peace

Plant our seeds, grow our dreams

To build a better life

Surrender to the truth inside

There is not a greater guide             

To Step into the Light  


(CHORUS  + Tag): 

Leave your shoes outside the door, you won’t need them

anymore, to Step into the Light, into the Light, into the light...

2. UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

     (Tom Benjamin)


(CHORUS)

Unconditional Love                                                                 

Unconditional Love                                                              

What people need as much as heaven above           

Is some Unconditional Love                                             


(Verse #1)                     

Take the child who can’t do right                       

Hold his motives up to the light                          

Does he really need the back of your hand      

Or your Unconditional Love..... 


(CHORUS)


(Verse #2)

Take a woman and take a man       

We expect so much and we make demands

When all we really need to understand

Is some Unconditional Love....


(CHORUS)


(Bridge)

I look around and I know it’s true     

I ask myself what can I do     

Just open up your heart and let it flow through  

Open up your heart and let it flow through

Open up your heart and let it flow through          

Unconditional  Love…..             


(Verse #3)

This world can be such a lonely place

We hide our hearts and we hide our face

When all we really need is a little faith

And some Unconditional Love


(CHORUS)

Unconditional Love                                                                 

Unconditional Love                                                              

What people need as much as heaven above           

Is some Unconditional Love

3. I WANT TO GO THERE AGAIN

     (Tom Benjamin)


Could it be this place

Could it be this night              

Could it be your face in the pale moonlight 


Could it be it’s been too long

Like a distant song         

Could it be there was a light left on

(CHORUS)

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know 

Where we’re going 

All I know, all I know    

Is where we’ve been 

I want to go there again and again 

I want to go there again                         


Could it be a brand new start

A rewrite of a tragic part

Could it be the healing of a broken heart


Could it be what’s gone is gone         

What’s wrong is wrong

Could it there was a light left on


(CHORUS)


(Bridge)

In the middle of the dark night

I found what I could not find

And it was oh so near...

In the middle of the dark night

I saw what I could not see

And it was oh so clear                       

Oh, so clear...


Could it be this place

Could it be this night

Could it be this is our time to shine             

Let’s go there again and again and again

I want to go there with you again

4. THOSE DAYS ARE GONE

     (Tom Benjamin)


Well, I woke up this morning

And it wasn’t hard to see

When there’s trouble with you baby

There’s trouble with me

So tell me your heart

There’s no better place to start

You can carry it alone

But you know those days are gone


You ask me where I’ve been

And I know just what you mean

My heart”s been with you baby

But my head’s been in a dream

Caught up like a fool

Like only fools can do

Thought I could carry it alone

But you know those days are gone


(bridge)

You’re feeling kind of distant

And I’m feeling ‘bout the same

We’re searching for the rainbow

That’s hiding in the rain

But it really doesn’t matter

‘Cause the feelings never change

And I just want to slow things down

And show you what I mean


You know I get so restless

And I forget to take the time

To tell you that I love you

And you’re always on my mind

So I’m telling you right now

Oh, I'm telling you right now

Don’t want to carry it alone

‘Cause you know those days are gone


You can't carry it alone

Cause you know those days are gone

Gone…Gone…Gone…Gone

5. FORGIVE MYSELF

    (Tom Benjamin)


I want to lay down in the shade of the truth 

I want to find the peace only that can do

I need to be forgiven for the times I slipped and fell      

But most of all, I need

To Forgive Myself


You know what’s done is done 

It’s never gonna change

No matter what you do or where you go

The past remains the same

I need to be forgiven and I know I need your help 

But most of all, I need,

To Forgive Myself

I need … I need to forgive myself           


(Bridge)

As the river flows

So life goes

‘Til the heartland meets the sea

Somewhere along the way

We’re bound to learn to pray

If we don’t learn nothin’ else


Say a prayer for me….say a prayer for me            


I want to lay down in the shade of the truth

I want to find the peace only that can do

I need to be forgiven for the times I slipped and fell

But most of all, I need, I need, I need

To Forgive Myself

I need, I need to Forgive Myself

I need, I need to Forgive Myself

6.  UNTIL THE LIGHT RETURNS

     "In Loving memory of Dennis Godfrey"

       (Suzee Waters Benjamin)



Sometimes grief is slow and haunting

Like a nightingale’s song

It disappears in the morning

Returns when day is done


On sleepless nights when dreams are restless

And vision fades to black,

I lie awake and I remember

To try and bring you back 

Just to try and bring you back


(CHORUS #1)         

Nightingale give me wings

To fly away with you

Through the darkest night we’ll sing

‘Til daylight brings refuge

And one more night and one more day

You’ll help me make it through

Until the Light Returns……Again      


Sometimes whispering your name

Can help to ease my pain

And the emptiness I feel

With every breath that I breathe


And here I am still wanting more

When you gave ALL you had to give

‘Cause I’m half a heart without you

With half a will to live


(CHORUS #1 + Bridge).......         

        An angel in the night you are

        A wish upon a falling star

        A healer of my broken heart

        With a song that pierces through the dark ….             

        Until the Light Returns, Until the Light Returns,  

        Until the Light Returns….Again


And one more night and one more day

You’ll help me make it through                                       

Until the Light Returns….Again

7. KNOW I LOVE YOU

    (Tom Benjamin)


I don’t know

But I’ve been told

The world is round

You couldn’t prove it by me

I guess we have to

Take a lot of things on faith

Somehow we do that naturally


(CHORUS)

And so you ask me

Do I love you still

And you wait on my reply

Sure as the world is round

Sure as the sky is blue, know I

Know I love you

Know I love you


And so I turn

To look at you

And you to me

My true and faithful friend

The rivers we have crossed were wide

And sometimes rough

But safe here on the other side we stand


(CHORUS)


If you see

A distant look

There in my eyes

I’m just working through somethings

I don’t mean to turn away or shut you out

That’s the last thing that we need


CHORUS)

And so you ask me

Do I love you still

And still I can reply

Sure as the world is round

Sure as the sky is blue, know I

Know I love you

Know I love you

9. GONNA GET BACK UP

    (Tom Benjamin)


Ain’t given up my dreams

Long as I can breathe

Ain’t given up my ground

Gonna plant my seeds

If I get knocked down   

In the dirt and the dust

I’m gonna get back up

I’m gonna get back up


Ain’t given up hope

Ain’t given up my song

Ain’t  given up love

As I travel on

And if I stumble

As I surely must

I’m gonna get back up

(repeat 4 times)


(Bridge)

I’m gonna get back on my feet again     

‘Cause I know where I’m bound     

I’m gonna get back on my feet again   

Won’t let nobody, won’t let nobody           

Turn me around, turn me around  

Turn me around, turn me around       


Ain’t given up the keys

To the kingdom come

Ain’t given up the glory

'Til my song is sung

When I’m feeling down 

And I’ve lost the love

I’m gonna get back up

(repeat 4 times)


(Choral/bridge)

Ooooo, Ooooo, Ooooo,                          

It’s  all about LOVE….Sweet  Sweet Love  

It’s all about LOVE......Sweet, Sweet love


(Bridge)

I’m gonna get back on my feet again……    

(Repeart Verse #1)

10. THE CIRCLE NEVER ENDS

       (Tom Benjamin)


I’ve got a dream tells me who I am

Feet on the ground tell me where I stand

And I don’t want to hear old excuses again

Coming from me …Coming from me


I get myself thinking things are out of my hands

It’s the easiest way to let go my friend

Well, lately I’m thinkin’ I’m gonna take hold again

Take hold again … Take hold again


(CHORUS)

Cause you give and you take and you learn

How to make it grow

And you laugh and you cry in between

You may not know why

You walk then you run, oh so far

Yet it seems you’ve just begun it again

And you’re right, cause The Circle Never Ends,

The Circle Never Ends


This wheel keeps on turning and I just watch it spin

This light keeps on burning even when it’s dim

And I’ve got a feeling that I’m starting over again,

Over again … Over again


(CHORUS)

Cause you give and you take and you learn

How to make it grow

And you laugh and you cry in between

You may not know why

You walk then you run oh so far

Yet it seems you’ve just begun it again

And you’re right, cause The Circle Never Ends,

The Circle Never Ends, The Circle Never End......

11. WHERE YOU WANT ME

       (Tom Benjamin)


I’ve studied the way you talk

I’ve learned all the things that make you laugh

And how you laugh


I’m not above an old line

Or turning an old familiar phrase

To catch your gaze

        

(CHORUS)

You know you’ve got me where you want me

Where you want me, I can tell you it’s alright

You know you’ve got me where you want me

Where you want me, you can find me tonight

Tonight … Tonight


I take you for granted sometimes

Sometimes I just can’t say what I feel

And I don’t know why


But I’m here to tell you straight out

You’re the best thing that ever came my way

And I’m here to stay


(CHORUS)


Time alone tells the story

And time has been very kind to us

Like a tender touch


(CHORUS)

You know you’ve got me where you want me

Where you want me, I can tell you it’s alright

You know you’ve got me where you want me

Where you want me, you can find me tonight

(tag)

You know you’ve got me where you want me

Still got me where you want me tonight

Tonight … Tonight … Tonight

12. I BELIEVE

       (Don Schlitz)


I believe in walks at night

Quiet meals by candlelight

Love beginning at first sight

At least, I do sometimes


I believe in liberty and

Backwoods philosophy

And I believe in poetry

Especially when it rhymes              


(CHORUS #1)

I believe that everyman

Is no more than a grain of sand             

Holding mountains in our hands


I believe in calling bluffs

Saying no when you’ve had enough

And knowing when to talk about love

And meaning what you say


I believe in eternity

And keeping track of your memories

Cause every second hangs endlessly

And never goes away


(CHORUS #2))

I believe I believe, we hold the whole world in our hands  

I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe….I believe  

           

I believe that a poor man’s dreams

Mean much more than a rich man’s schemes        

I believe that no machine

Will ever gain control


I believe in setting sights

Always on the greatest heights

And being proud when you get it right

Cause you feel in your soul


(CHORUS #1 & #2)


I believe in playing fair and

Teaching children how to share

I believe in staying where

I feel like I belong


I believe in forgiving twice

And always paying an honest price

And I believe in Jesus Christ

When I’m all alone              


(CHORUS #1 & #2 + tag)

8. WHEN THE WALL CAME DOWN

     (Suzee Waters Benjamin)


When the Wall Came Down…When the Wall Came Down

When the Wall Came Down…When the Wall Came Down


A wall came down in my existence I didn’t know was there

It was massively inclusive … it was all I knew and everywhere

It was comfortably uncomfortable like wearing outgrown shoes

A little painful to walk in but more painful to lose


When the Wall Came Down……..


The crack that brought it down must has been there all along

I felt its fearful trembles but thought it natural

When it finally crashed and crumbled the roar was devastating

Reverberations Penetrating…Revelations Invigorating


(CHORUS) 

When the Wall Came Down…When the Wall Came Down

It was such a primal sound …When the Wall Came Down


Like a giant wave it rolled over all in its path

It fell so hard, so deep. none survived its impact

And every single prisoner was released without bail

Incarcerated for so long they thought this dream was real


(CHORUS)


NOW what to do and how to live in this waking state

No longer just pretending insanity is sane

And wealth is all we need to measure human values

When compassion, trust, and freedom guard redemption’s gate


Without this wall my knowing never knew my life forever changed

The seal was broken the truth revealed what the envelope contained

And all my plans, my purpose, my identity was shattered

Where on earth do we begin to rebuild this world of matter

Where on earth do we begin to rebuild this world of matter


When the Wall Came Down.......

                

Opportunity abounds now for conscious communication

Sensitive observations … loving co-creations  

Knowing separation can breed hatred and greed

A limited existence that excludes eternity


I RECLAIM my divine birthright to be free

I RECLAIM my ability to know … to love … to be

The truth that lives inside hungry to feed

To act with integrity … to live in harmony


(CHORUS)

When the Wall Came Down, ... When the Wall Came Down

OH, LOOK WHAT  FOUND…When the Wall Came Down
