Love Comes Down

Resurrection Band - BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL - © 1985

He said that He had your number 
You cut the telephone line
You say you needed a reason
He said "There ain't much time"
You kept tryin' to avoid it
He kept knockin' on the door
In a flash it was over
You were a prisoner of war

But when you lose, you win
That's the way it is
That's when the love comes down

She was playin' in traffic an' you were scopin' her out
She was so much elastic, someone had strung her out
Until the fire had reached her, that's when the lights came on
That's when she got off her habit, that's when you took her on home

You can beat the heat
He's red hot on your trail
He's the love enforcer an' He's paid your bail
It's much more than emotion, It's not just in your head
You gotta die to get life an' you'de better off dead

Zuid Afrikan

Resurrection Band - BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL - © 1985

You cannot ban me 
The walls, the bars, they cannot hold me in 
I am the prisoner not to your policies, 
Your prejudices, your sin 
You cannot silence me 
There are no respect for persons in my eyes 
But I can tell you this 
If you live by the sword, by the sword you shall die 
Lion, lion you lay down with the lamb 
Or you will lie on, lie on and the end will be at hand 	

You sow mercy and mercy you shall reap 
You sow pain and pain you will receive 
In the rubble of shantys in your land 
Zuid African  

You look for justice 
Then you will seek for me 
To know compassion you must know my name 
For forgiveness you must face your shame 
Die to live again  

You sow mercy and mercy you shall reap 
You sow love then love you shall reap 
Fear me the greatest 
For I fear no man

Walk On

Resurrection Band - BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL - © 1985

When you see a blind man 
Don't walk on by 
When you see a lame man 
Don't walk on by 
When you see a drunkard 
Don't walk on 
When you see a victim 
Don't victimize  

We got to reach out  
Come on out of the night
Be the people of light, the people of light 

We can feel the pain of a hungry child 
We can see dispair in a mother's eyes 
We can you see the refugees on the nightly news 
From the comfort of our couches and our padded pews 

We got to reach out  
Come on out of the night
Be the people of light, the people of light 

He is the hungry 
Don't walk on by 
He is the thristy 
Don't walk on by 
He is the stranger 
Don't walk on 
He is the naked 
You can't walk on by 
He is the wounded 
Don't walk on 
He is  the prisoner 
Don't walk on by 
He is the least 
Don't walk on 
He is the least of these 
Don't you walk on by

Talk To Me

Resurrection Band - BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL - © 1985

I am a house without window 
I'm a room without a door 
I'm a fortress broke into 
I'm a city with no walls 
I'm a ship without an anchor 
I'm a fire without a flame 
I'm a universel person 
I'm a face without a name 

Why don't you talk to me 
Why don't you talk to me 
Why don't you talk to me 
Why don't you talk to me 

I'm a dance witouht a rhythm 
I'm a poet without a rhyme  
I'm a comedy gone sour 
I'm a memory lost in time 
A book without a binding 
Salt you cannot taste 
I'm a universel person 
My identity erased 

Why don't you talk to me 
Why don't you talk, talk to me 
Why don't you talk to me 

I'm an emotion without action 
My heart held tight by fear 
My heart is split in half 
I have ears that will not hear 
One thing I know is true 
This, I know as a fact 
The closer that I get to You 
Your voice will start coming back 
I wanna to talk to You 
I need to talk to You (repeat)

I Think You Know

Resurrection Band - BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL - © 1985

You used to think you're okay 
But now you know it wasn't true 
You had the world by the tail 
Now what you gonna do 
You rolled the dice and played to win 
How will you solve the fix you're in ? 
I think you know there's something else 
I think you know there's someone else 
She was the heart you tore apart
With all your selfishness and greed 
He stands between you now 
So will you stay or will you leave ? 
What could've change her overnight 
She walks in such a different light 

I think you know there's something else 
I think you know there's someone else 
I think you know, 
I think you know I know you know, 
I know you know 

There's nothing left but ashes 
Where there was once a stolen kiss 
But what the Savior offers 
You can't afford to say no! 
You can't afford to miss, ooooh ! 
The light is shining in your eyes 
Now let Him come and live inside 

I think you know there's something else 
I think you know there's someone else 
I think you know there's something else
I think you know there's someone else

Shadows

Resurrection Band - BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL - © 1985

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

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

Save Me From Myself

Resurrection Band - BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL - © 1985


Gimme something that's real 
Tell me it won't break 
Give me something that last 
Tell me it's not fake
Do you know someone possibly 
Who would be very true to me 
Someone who's not fake 

Someone who could save me from myself 
Someone who could give me some answers?
 
Our world's turning around 
You can be lonely in the middle of a crowd 
People jumping out of their skin 
Waiting for something that will never begin 
Do you know someone possibly 
Who would be very true to me 
Someone who's not fake

Nervous World

Resurrection Band - BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL - © 1985

Why worry about tomorrow 
Let the good times roll 
Big deal if you reap what you sow 
Why hurry through today if you think it don't matter 
And you really don't care where you go 

Hey you, you can't take it with you 
Yeah you, you gotta get it right now 

It's a nervous, nervous world 
It's a nervous, nervous world 

Why worry, let the world eat cake 
Why hurry, live for pleasure's sake 
Don't think or we may come unglued 
Just drink till the good earth's nuked 

It's a nervous, nervous world 
Is it any wonder why we crash and burn 
It's a nervous, nervous, nervous world 
When will we ever learn 

And they wind you up till the mainspring breaks 
And the tension beats like a drum 
So you bounce right back for another go-round 
Along the road to hell they're on 
Don't think or we may come unglued 
Party till the world is nuked 

It's a nervous, nervous world 
It's a nervous, nervous world 
Everywwhere we see the rise and fall of men 
It's a nervous, nervous world 
It's a nervous, nervous world till 
He comes again

2,000

Resurrection Band - BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL - © 1985

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

Will the frozen tundra
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

In the neon's flashing
Will we be machines
Will we push the button
In racing conscience clean
Will the jagged mountains
Fall down to dust
Consume by 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 slam the door
You lock 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
