And it's all right now, it's all right now
Let tomorrow
begin today
-Brad Koning

 

Begin Today

It's a new day hoping maybe that things will turn around
Staring outside the window of a high rise the sky begins to shine
Walking backwards with the world in reverse
just trying to make things right
What's been said has been said so no sense in wasting our time
And the light is breaking, and the world is waking
Stand up it's your moment to shine, it's your moment to shine

And it's all right now, it's all right now
Let tomorrow begin today

Stepping outside into the spotlight it's like a brand new song
And for a moment one perfect moment the world is singing along
And the light is breaking, and the world is waking
Stand up it's your moment to shine, it's your moment to shine


Daylight

I'm so scared to say the words that beg to come out,
oh they'll dig my grave
And I don't know where everything went wrong
But I'm terrified of these four walls,
the memories that seem to haunt me
Everytime that I close my eyes
It's like I'm falling slowly into the arms of lonely

And it's a long night 'til daylight
When you're gone I'll be here holding on 'til daylight

Jump in reverse on this road I've been walking
Take it back to where we were
Give me the steep steps of your front porch
Darling in that dress I watch you turn
It's got me falling slowly into the arms of lonely

And I don't know what I could say
to change the way you think of me
If only you could give me a little time
I'll have you falling slowly just like you knew it could be

Behind

I take my chances like there's nothing left to lose
And I mend the pieces when it all falls through
Don't take a word love, just catch my eye
'Cause a handshake can mistake all the
warm-hearted truth for a cold cold lie
And everything's gonna change
And I might just be the last
But when I say I will…I will

And it's a long long road over this mountain
And far far way away from here
Oh it's a dark dark night and morning is risin'
And I'll be right behind the light

You change your mind love, over again
And let me down to draw me in
And don't wish it all away, and don't think we've got it down
'Cause nothings ever missing 'til you wish you had it back around
And everything's gonna change
And I might just be the last
But when I say I will…I will

If all we are is all we lost
I know all that goes down will make it's way back around
And everything's gonna change
And you might just be the last
But you say the word and I'll be right here

And it's a long long road over this mountain
And it's a far far way away from here
Oh it's a big 'ol world, but honey all we need is right here
And it's a long long road over this mountain
And a far far way but it's just around the bend
Oh it's a dark dark night and morning is a risin'
And love is right behind, oh love is right behind the light


Light Be Kind

Light be kind
Let your light fall
And softly glow
In new eyes wonder full

World be quiet
War and hate retire
And all around
What was lost is found

Heart beat right
And light of love shine bright
And hope take hold
In new eyes wonder full


Hardly Breathe

You are the most beautiful thing I think I've ever seen
It flows from your eyes to your toes and heaven only knows
That I can hardly breathe

You are the cutest thing that I've ever seen
That beach blond hair and the way that you say you love only me
And I can hardly breathe

You are the most colorful thing I think I've ever seen
You shine like the moon, you burn like the sun,
you move like the sea girl
And I can hardly breathe

You're like water to my veins
Don't you know
You've got heaven in your eyes
And you leave me paralyzed
Don't you know
You're like velvet in my hands
Like rain drops in a desert land
Oh you are everything to me
You are everything
And I can hardly breathe

Sunbeams

Today the sky is raining so if it's alright I'll just stay in
It's always days like this when I feel like the whole world's caving in
They say our bad dreams are not so
bad if we can open up our eyes and laugh
So maybe that's just what I'll do,
sit here and laugh 'til the sun breaks through
'Cause I want to live my life out loud
I'm not gonna take this sitting down
So tell everyone we're leaving now

Come along for the ride of your life
Make no mistake there's no turning around this time
So glad to see you're doing fine
But there's so much more out there
than we could ever know in here
So hold on tight for the ride of your life

Well everyone's got a reason, it's all we can do just to get by
But I'm over this life of excuses,
so friends of the old me say goodbye
'Cause I want to live my life out loud
I'm not gonna take this sitting down
So tell everyone we're leaving now

And I remember sunbeams shining down
like everything's going to be alright
And if you can find me, I'll be here waiting
And it would be worth everything just to see your face


I Am Yours

It's been raining now for days, it's been raining and I can't see clear
The world spins around me and darkness it surrounds me here
Though it's dark I am not afraid for I know you're here with me

Bring me shelter from the rain
Lift me up so I can sing for you, I am yours
I've got nothing left to give
It's taken all I have, but these three words I am yours

There's a darkness I can't shake the kind of darkness
only your light can break
And as the storm descends upon me
your word alone will guide me home
And through it all I am not afraid for I know you're here with me

And when I feel all alone I know you've gone before me
And when I can't go on I know you'll carry me home

Shine On

It's funny how light bends
It's crazy how life is
It's scary how time is
When it's all you have
It's wild how we fight when we see the end
While all the days before it were taken for granted

Shine on, shine on, shine on me now
Come down, come down and find me now

It's frightening how we are gods in our own minds
Where guns lead to freedome, war comes before peace, and truth is a hard find.
It's stunning how we find ways to distract ourselves
From seeing what we can change, if only we'd rearrange

Take the wool off of my eyes and let me see the things that you see
Shine a light of understanding, shine a light on all that could be
And is it more than we can bear the jagged cross of all our self love
And can I find the strength to stand upon the legs I've never walked on

Shine on, shine on, shine on me now
Come down, come down and find me now
I take the air and breathe it in
I take a breath and breathe it deep
I take a step and I fall down you're finding me
