it soars across the sky
I look up, please Lord, no, not yet
I'm still not ready to die
I feel it closer, it's louder now
engine burning pilot out of control
my time has come, there's no regret
but I look over my shoulder at you
all the secrets, all the laughter,
all the time we shared here
all disolves, a mist in the sun
into one question, can you still hear?
with my one last gaze I look over -
question burning in my eyes,
discord blaring in my chest
it's too late to ask, but I already know...
it's my fault, an alien in disguise
Ashamed to say - I never told you...
what happens when song comes to an end
the plane's crashing around me
Your panic stricken face fading from view
my soul's earthly song fades into white noise
and my heart's ear listens attentively to angels
fearfully, I look back at my old shell
but all emotion/life is gone
the body you see, is no longer me
but the person you knew lives on
my senses find me in a beautiful place,
with gold stre

Not Another Passerby
What will it take for you to see me?
I walk by everyday but you're never free.
Sometimes I want to yell and scream
But you just keep drinking your coffee and cream.
Am I invisible to you or too plain?
Maybe it's the constant falling rain,
The tall buildings crowding the narrow street,
Clouds hovering over them in a white sheet.
It's ok because I see you everyday I pass.
You look sad and lonely staring through the glass.
You keep drinking your coffee and cream,
I wish you could lose your gloom and beam.
I'm working my courage up to stop and say hi,
I don't want to be just another passerby.
I want to tell you of the happiness I've found
And to help you make that lovely sound.
Watch your face turn from a frown to a smile
until your laughing and losing that bitter bile.
To show you how to take that awesome leap
Of faith that will never make you weep.
Christ is the secret to set your heart free
To let go of your troubles and let them be.
If only I can build up th

My bones feel heavy, crushed
right now things don't seem so clear
I know that I can be healed by Your touch
I know Your presence is right here
Jesus, these things throw me around
and it's a fight to keep the tears back
Jesus, the world seems to like to bring me down
pointing out the things I lack
My throat is swollen and sore
these cheeks aren't without their salty stains
I know You feel this even more
I know You've had Your greater share of pain
Jesus, it's hard to see Your face
but I'll fight to keep my head up
Jesus, Your arms are warm and keep me safe
You took me in when you drank from that cup
it's just so hard to see
My flesh cries out for so much
what is it that You want me to see?
I know I am already healed by Your touch
Jesus, Your plan is all I want for me
but it's so much harder to swallow
Jesus, what is it that You want me to see?

Burdenedcold is the nightBurdened in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
burdened, i cry
and troubled i sleep
awak'ning to weep
for this past haunting me
the future is dark
the shadow of death
shadow of death
with this pain on my heart
My feet will only take me so far
and i've lost the map that is leading me
lost on a road that leads nowhere
lost on a road that leads me nowhere
the weight casts me down
to a cold, unkind ground
starved and broken
bleeding and broken
i turn to face the skies
and there i confront the lies
that are weighing me down
lies weigh me down
forcing me to death
and then i behold
the author of beauty of old
to whom all history unfolds
and he promises somewhere
somewhere to go
and so i toss down my grief
and shoulder the cross
o' Jesus, i weep
please God carry me
and Lord may I rest
from the waylay of thieves
who've stolen my home
Lord take me home
Lord take me home
RefusalRefusal in Free Verse More Like This
You stand in place,
the epitome of a hardened heart
I know that you love me,
but I just wish you could understand
that it's just so hard to see
Your words can be as slick as silver bullets
cutting through my spirit
and breaking me down on the inside
There are days where it all seems hopeless
when all I want are tears upon tears
because you just refuse to...
I reach out my hand and try to be okay
even when you push it aside
I'll always be ready to embrace you
because it doesn't matter how I'm brought down
My love for you is almost painful,
and I wish that you could see
that He loves you more than I do
Can't you just take a look?
But you turn aside and look away
because you just refuse to...
I see you standing there,
you think you've got it all under control
when everything is really just falling apart
You pull yourself together,
but we both know the stitches won't hold
It's a wrenching sort of feeling,
almost as though a storm was raging inside
Waiting for you to see is so hard,

Your gods do not see you bow
What are you trying to prove?
That God isn't true?
Don't you understand?
Why do you listen to that band?
Your heart is quickly dying
Can't you see God crying?
You gave up on Him, why?
It's useless for me to try
We knew it at "goodbye"
And now I want to cry
For you I still care
Your self-destruction I cannot bear
With a deep breath of air
I ask God to remove my despair
Yes, you caused me pain
But let me make this very plain
You are a child of His
There is nothing greater than this
Please give God your sin
Can't you see it's all coming to an end?
Oh, you child of God
Don't give into the earthly sod.
Yes, on this earth we'll never meet again
but don't make this a permanent end
It's my prayer that God will make you bend
And you will come to your one true Friend
Do not think when I am gone,
That you can escape into an earthly song
I've asked God to make you long
For the peace that hasn't gone
Remember God is forever true
And that I never hated
