Love Speak

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995


I can preach at you til I'm blue in the face
Judge you to death and put you in your place
I can feed your body yeah share the wealth
And still lose my soul to the fires of hell

Love speak

You can speak it with blood, speak it with sweat
Not so easily done, much more easily said
Spoken by the living, spoken by the dead
Got to speak it with your heart as well as your head

Love speak

Love don't care if you slander its name
It'll burn at the stake and bless the flame
Rises from the ashes again and again
And keeps coming back for more of the same

Lovespeak

Broken Promises

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

Broken promises,
We lost the joy that we once knew.
Where do we go from here,
From something old to something new?
Past dreams done gone from me,
I'm losing daylight, losing view.
Son of God, where are you now?
Do you feel my need?
I'm lost within this forest,
Barricaded by the trees.
Will You hear my cry for help,
Would You forgive me?
I'm so far away,
I've run so far away.
Broken promises,
Broken by me and not by You.
Jesus, break me.
Lord, snap my stubborn heart in two.
Lonely hours, so many wasted talents
That I've sown.
But I'm ready to follow You, Jesus.
My dear Lord, I'm coming home.
Lord, I want You to change me,
Rearrange me.
Lord, I want you to mold me.
I just want you to hold me.
Sweet Savior, just love me.
Your thoughts are so high above me.
And I confess that I need You.
I really know that I need You. 
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
I need You.
Lord, help me to follow You.
Jesus, I'm gonna follow You.

I give my whole life to You.
Jesus, I'm gonna follow You.
My dear Lord, I'm coming home, yeah !

Lord, I need to follow You
Jesus, I gonna follow You
I give my whole life to You
Jesus, I gonna follow You
My dear Lord, I'm coming home

Souls For Hire

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

You toy with the truth
You dilute with water
You hate your wife
But you say you love your daughter

Envision if you will
A world on fire
It's a flaming sin
We're sould for hire

You get what you pay for
A jack of all trades
A fish full of small change
A host of charades
Philosophies drifting
To please every whim
It only depends
On the mood you're in

You learn toward religion
You secularize
Don't feed me excuses
They're nothing but lies
The time that you're wasting
Is precios to Him
Truth is you don't confront sin

Like a magician
With rabbit in hand
A wand of ideas
At your command
Some will be fooled
And believe what you say
But God will be the last
To speak on that day

Leave or be left
That's what it says
Be loved if you want
Or lost if you don't
Don't blame the preacher
Don't balme the school
Don't blame conditions
Don't be a fool
If you live in darkness
It's you that decides
An' it won't freeze over
No matter the time

The House Is On Fire

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995


I smell smoke on the holy ground
I feel the heat, somethin's comin' down

I'm barely awake in this midnight hour
Under the spell of a numbling power
I can taste flames in the scorchin' light
How I wish I was dreamin'
Wrong an' not right
How wish I was wrong, an' not right, right, right

How can I hesitate
It's gettin' harder to breathe 
In the grey smoke hanging
Suffocating me

The house is on fire

The walls are alive in this red-hot blaze
Shout to the sleepers throught the terminal haze
As the sparks fly up and the flames reach higher
Call me what you will but I ain't no liar

The house is on fire!

I Need Your Love

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995


I want Your love, I need Your love
People come'n'go, people change
Your love flows, You stay the same
I want Your love

I want Your fire, I need Your desires
Wheels are turnin' all around me
Fire's burnin' I'm so glad You found me
I want Your fire, I need Your desires

I'm not ashamed anymore
I call You Love, Jesus, I call you Lord

You're the beginning, You're the end
You're my first love, my best friend
You brought the daylight to the day
Created strlight to guide my way
You are my Saviour, You are my Lord
You paid the price I could never afford

Rain Dance

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

Talkin' to myself
Idea and images covered with dust
Memories well-worn from contant use
Stained by loneliness and lust
Heaping on my heart abuse
Somebody tell me
What's the use?

Wet-walking in streaming rain
Hair stuck to my head like my thoughts
Regents half-felt and sin half-loved
What I have bought?
Drops coming down on my face
And on the roottops
But they don't reach inside me
I say faith is just for fools
Somebody tell me
What's the use?

Love cold and wet
Against my skin
Where do you end
How do you begin
I'm so lost in a world without Your breath
Needing Your fire
Fearing Your flame
Should I surrender
Waiting for the rain
Streaming rain
Come rain
Lord send Your rain, rain, rain rain rain

Shadows

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

In the words of his mama, "He was my only son."
In the words of his sister, "He was on the run."
In the words of his girl, "How could it end this way?"
In the words of his daddy, "Well he never had much to say."

Goodbye Kathy and goodbye Mom, there's voices in my head
Angel dust and tortured dreams say I'd be better dead

You, you chased the shadows because your hopes 
and dreams have been lost to the night

Hey, Billy, did you hear the news?
Johnny's gone for good
They say his mama's all broke up
They found him in the woods
Kathy just couldn't understand
Sheriff, he just looked tired
Some will play and some will pay
And Johnny played with fire

Goodbye Kathy and goodbye Mom, there's voices in my head
Angel dust and tortured dreams say I'd be better dead

You, you chased the shadows because your hopes 
and dreams have been lost to the night

You, you chased the shadows because your hopes 
and dreams have been lost to the night

Johnny's dead and buried now out on the edge of town
Drove by his grave the other day, that's when the fear came down
I hate the night that took his life, but now it's haunting me
I may be young, may be confused but I gotta be free

God, are You there, can You hear me now?
Show me how to hope
Lost in the dark on a dead end road, please save me from myself

Lord, You, You took the shadows 
- all my fears and doubt and brought me out of the night
Lord, You , You take the shadows 
- give me hope and love and turn my darkness to light

Lord, You, You took the shadows 
- all my fears and doubt and brought me out of the night
Lord, You , You take the shadows 
- give me hope and love and turn my darkness to light

So In Love With You

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

Somewhere in Scotland or Wales
I met You in heather
Under starlit skies, was it in November
A dream, a thought, a wisper there
All I know is now I know You care
Somewhere in time I realized

What can I say, can I do
I'm so in love with You

Somewhere in time I realized how lost I'd been
Black out on the moors, taunting Northern wind
Rainsaaked daybreak, arriving at Land's End
Dawn paints storm clouds
You coloured me Your friend

Your name, my reason for being
If love is, so are You
Blue tide, mirror bright
My heart reflects Your truth
A spark, a prayer beyond the lee
I found joy in Your reality
Jesus, I'm so in love with You

Colours

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

In the dead of night, like the lightning bright, You'll come
In the eyes of my heart, where You silenced the dark, I know You'll come

As the planets dance around the sun I rejoice in the Risen One
You are the Lord, the love of my life
I wait for You in the morning light

Silence stands with open hands hushed before the King
Joy believes and happily praises as she sings
Wonder sits in open fields beholding all You made
Desire seeks Your colours, each and every shade

Whatever one could ask of faith, obedience will give
Together all express the love in hearts where Jesus lives

Irish garden

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

Sitting in an Irish garden
You melancholy bride
All your children are dying
Blood on the roadside
Your people are helpless
And no one consoles you
As bullets keep flying
Filling you with holes
Why, oh why, did you run and hide
It's a culture shock to the soul
You sit in the flames of the fire you set
The nation is out of control
Sitting in an Irish garden
You broken bride to be
Rise up through your sorrow
Jesus makes you free

Olden days gone by
It was not so then
Time to play, sing and dance
In His Holy land
Why did I hide from You
With the serpent at my heel
I'm sorry for the way that I
Must have made You feel
Must have made You feel
Lord, I'm sorry for the way
I know I made you feel

Humble us to seek You, Father
Heal our land so lost in sin
Draw us from the bitter water
To the garden once again

Right On Time

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

Your love was right on time

I remember when I was young
Swayed in the grass of an autumn sun
I'd feel the wind upon my face
Before it blew to another place

But I've grown older since the magic of those days
Forgotten how the breezes make the meadows play

Your love was right on time

Somethin' tells me I'm not alone
Travellin' down this lonesome road
I feel sometimes that I could cry
Not knowin' the reasons why

Then He told me I was losin' all control
Then He told me I could lose my very soul
I knew I coul not make it on my own
Then you came along and made me whole

Your love was right on time

Seasons passin' as they will
Fields are mown and the the ground lies still
Now in sorrow it comes to mind
Left more than youth and fields behind

Now in mercy it comes to mind

Your love was right on time

Across These Fields Reprise

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

 
 Across these fields
Where daylight travels
I want to yield
Dispite this veil of tears
When will You
When will You be returning
I cast my lot
Beyond the fear

Across these fields
I take my pleasure
Force of Your will 
No matter what may come
Through the mist
I found the treasure
Worth my life
Kingdom soon to come

Face to face
No more alone
I shall know
As I am known
With You
I am alive
Lord, with You
I am satisfied

Across these fields
Beyond the stars
Above this pale, endless universe of ours
Where dreams were born
All mysteries unfold
Where love is a Person to behold

2000

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

In the year 2000, 
Will we still have minds
Will our hearts be stoned cold
And who do the blinds ?

Will the throes and thunder
Reflect blue light
In the faces and the passages of modern night

And who lit the flame
Who moved the stone
Who promised grace
In the face of Rome
Life in a world
Is a master of time
By the year 2000
The star will shine

And the neons flashing
Will we be machines
Will we push the button
In racing conscience screams
Will the jaggered mountains
Fall down to dust
Consume the weapons of human lust

And who lit the flame
Who moved the stone
Who promised grace
In the face of Rome
Life in a world
Is a master of time
By the year 2000
The star will shine

Where will you go
What will you do
When your life comes crashing
Down on you
You slammed the door
You locked your heart
How will you face
The endless dark

And who lit the flame
Who moved the stone
Who promised grace
In the face of Rome
Life in a world
Is a master of time
By the year 2000
The star will shine

And who lit the flame
Who moved the stone
By the year 2000
May his love being known

Lincoln's Train

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

Passin' through these ruins
Mr Lincoln's train goin' by
Spilling smoke into these bloody fields
All the people stood and cried

Our tears are the same color
We can all hold hands and mourn
But me, I'm still asking myself
Why I'm not any freer than I was before

Mr Lincoln are you free now?
Was it worth what it finally cost?
If I had somethin to believe in
I could bear this endless cross

I got no home, they sold my family
I got no job, ain't got no vote 
Them books they're all mysteries to me
Can't read or write, I got no hope

The train it just keeps rollin'
Cold as steel and dark as night
It don't give me no answers, no
No, it don't pay me no mind

And the scenery just keeps changin'
But these folks, they just stay the same
Same old fearful eyes a starin'
Askin' me to take the blame

For their shame, for their shame

I Can't Stop Lovin' You

Resurrection Band - AMPENDECTOMY - © 1995

 I love the rain
I love the autumn wind
I love the snow
I love the space I'm in
I love the cold, on a winter's day
I love the truth, of the things You say

Sometimes my world gets spinning like a top
No matter what the price I just can't stop


I can't stop lovin' You
I can't stop lovin' You, no no
I can't stop lovin' You
No matter what they say


I love the waves, on a stormy sea
I love the stars, the way they shine at me
I love the moon, I see Your Light in it
I love Your Word, there's so much life in It

Sometimes I feel my world is falling down
How good to know Lord that I've been found


I can't stop lovin' You
I can't stop lovin' You, no no
I can't stop lovin' You
No matter what they say

There's nothing more, that I'd like to do
Than to see Your Face, and fly away with You
And pass those gates, and enter Heaven
With my wife, and my children

Oh Lord I know You must be coming soon
I'll stand before this world and shout it's true


I can't stop lovin' You
I can't stop lovin' You, no no
I can't stop lovin' You
No matter what they say

I can't stop lovin' You
I can't stop lovin' You, no no
I can't stop lovin' You
No matter what they say

Lord, I can't stop lovin' You
I can't stop lovin' You, no no
I can't stop lovin' You
No matter what they say
