Track Name: A Beautiful Way
A Beautiful Way
Music and Lyrics by Simon Adams
© 2012 Simon Adams

It’s a Beautiful Way
Walk in it you can’t feel the pain
It’s a Beautiful Way yeah
Walk in it, you’ll find grace upon grace
And this you’ll joyfully say

It’s a Beautiful Truth yeah,
Binding all once apart in you
There’s not one single way no,
That this Truth contradicts Grace
That’s a Beautiful Way

Never to be undone, never to be split from
Never to walk alone, never to needless own
More than my fair share of woe, oh
I can hear my heart breathe this

Always to practice a will of trust,
My heart does taste and is full of grace’s wisdom
Ever to live the same language my heart breathes and seeks
it needs to know it’s kind
But this discovery’s in rest,
Acquiesce your fearful heart and breathe

It’s a Beautiful life yeah
Overflowing out from the heart oh oh oh
We can wonder it’s heights yeah
While remaining on earth below
Remaining in our selves

Never to be misled, never to be just head
Never to quench my self, never my heart suppress
Given this compass I am, oh
I know my heart is this

Chorus
Track Name: Our Man
Our Man
Music and Lyrics by Simon Adams

Well there was this man see, looked just like you did he
Strollin’ down a street which, had about a million exits,
Sign up on the left said, "Don't go straight yet,
Drive into a ditch here
Must be hard to think there is an end, to your searching friend"

Now you can imagine, how this lack of vision
Gets into your head so, that's why he did have these ‘say sos’
"I know where I'm goin’, Prob’ly over mountains,
Valleys, crossin’ deserts, I'll be found to weather weather hard
Coz that's where you are…. and you're calling:"

"Wishin’ you were here too
You should taste with your own eyes
Here the river that flows and the honey so sweet
Can be found flown out of you neat"

Well our man was comin', wouldn't quit for nothing
When the wind was howling, you could hear his say so shouted,
"I know where I'm headed, in the past I've tasted
Now I'm wanting filling, beg your pardon, I'll be pressin’ hard
‘Til my own postcard, inspires others"

Chorus

You'll be glad to know his search did end, he wishes you were there...

Chorus 3
Wishin’ you were here too
You should taste with your own eyes
Here the river that flows and the honey so sweet to the taste
Can be found flown out of you neat
Track Name: Born to Change the World
Born to Change the World
Music and Lyrics by Simon Adams
© 2012 Simon Adams

We were raised to believe the lie
See the world and you see its future
You can not change what you can not fight, what's inside
We were set from the start to fail
So it goes does the propaganda
‘Til you get tired or so sick you say, let the whole earth be saved

We were born, we were born to change the world
Open doors, walk on through them and be turned, bringing with us others to learn
Ooh, loving till we lose the chains,
It may be time, oh, time to start to soar, time for being born again

We were taught to believe the dream
Keep you under to keep from falling
Coz if you wake and the real is seen, would you leave?
But you know you're already gone
While there's truth just above the surface
You hear the sound of the world above and you try to wake up

Chorus

We can learn if we turn, we can learn
If we turn we can learn, if we turn
I saw, yeah I saw the stars
I saw, yeah I saw the stars not too far
I saw, yeah I saw the stars, and here we are

We were born, Ooh
Open doors - bringing with us others to learn
Ooh, loving till we lose the chains
It may be time, oh
Time to start to soar, time for being born
Time to start to soar, time for being born
Time to start to soar, time for being born again
Track Name: Point and Shoot
Point and Shoot
Music and Lyrics by Simon Adams

I wasn't listening but something told me
I wasn't hearing what's my own name
I wasn't dreaming desire call me to come awake

Maybe the thunder would break the silence
Maybe my efforts to come alive
I wasn't looking but up you crept, passionate desire

I'm never ready
I'm rarely steady
My head's not in the game
Enough self-pity
I've found a better way

You've come to meet me
You are the One, how you load up a gun
And it's me you aim!
Shoot so you don't lose me
I can be great if you'll keep me awake
Don't care how you use me
Point and Shoot me today

I couldn't tell if my feet were on it
I couldn't tell if the way was here
I couldn't say if my feet knew something, it wasn't clear

You know the moment you come upon it
You know it's good coz you know yourself
And when you stand looking in your own eyes you know it well

I've got two choices
I hear two voices
Embrace myself or flee
Out of two courses
I've found the better way

You've come to meet me
You are the One, how you load up a gun
And it's me you aim!
Shoot so you don't lose me
I can be great if you'll keep me awake
Don't care how you use me
Point and Shoot me today

I can be great if you'll stay with me forever honey
Know you won't lead astray
I can shoot straight if today you're by my side honey
And show me a better way

I know you know it and
Shoot so you don't lose me
I can be great if you'll keep me awake
I don't care how you use me
Point and Shoot me today
