Lyrics for "Peace In Time

Happy is a State of Mind

 

YOU’RE NOT ALONE
OR OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY
I’M WITH YOU ALWAYS
JUST REACH FOR ME
AND I THINK YOU’LL SEE

HIDING YOUR LOVE
WILL GET YOU NOWHERE
NOWHERE’S NOT WHERE
YOU WANT TO BE

HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND
LOVE IS NEVER FAR BEHIND
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND

YOU WANT TO KNOW ME
I SAY I’M ALREADY PART OF YOU
TO SEE ME – SHOW ME
A LITTLE LOVE
IN EVERYTHING YOU DO

HIDING YOUR LOVE
WILL GET YOU NOWHERE (NOWHERE)
NOWHERE’S NOT WHERE
YOU WANT TO BE

HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND
LOVE IS NEVER FAR BEHIND
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND

(FLUTE AND VOCAL BRIDGE)

HIDING YOUR LOVE
WILL GET YOU NOWHERE (NOWHERE)
NOWHERE’S NOT WHERE
YOU WANT TO BE

YOU’LL SEE
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND
LOVE IS NEVER FAR BEHIND
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND

HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND
THE MORE YOU GIVE THE MORE YOU FIND
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND

HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND
LOVE IS NEVER FAR BEHIND
HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND

HAPPY IS A STATE OF MIND (TO OUT)

The Life You Gave

 

THE SUN’S IN THE SKY
AND YOUR LOVE’S SHINING
DOWN ON ME
THE LIGHT IN MY EYES
TELL THE WORLD
THAT MY HEART IS FREE

THERE MAY BE A STORM OUTSIDE
BUT I’M GOING OUT FOR A RIDE

TODAY’S A POSSIBILITY
ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY
ANOTHER CHANCE FOR ME TO SEE
THE LIFE THAT WAS MEANT TO BE

AND I WON’T CLOSE MY EYES
I WON’T RUN AND HIDE
I WON’T SET ASIDE
THE LIFE THAT YOU GAVE TO ME

ANOTHER DAY IN THE WORLD
AND I FEEL LIKE MY HEAD’S ON FIRE
FEELS LIKE MY HEART’S IN A CAGE
AND IT’S ALL COMING DOWN TO THE WIRE

I MIGHT BE THE LAST TO THE DANCE
BUT I’M GONNA TAKE THAT CHANCE

AND I WON’T CLOSE MY EYES
I WON’T RUN AND HIDE
I WON’T SET ASIDE
THIS LIFE THAT YOU GAVE TO ME
I WON’T CLOSE MY EYES
I WON’T RUN AND HIDE
I WON’T SET ASIDE
THIS LIFE THAT YOU GAVE TO ME

[BREAK]

THERE MAY BE A STORM OUTSIDE
BUT I’M GOING OUT FOR A RIDE
TODAY’S A POSSIBILITY
ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY
AND I WON’T CLOSE MY EYES
I WON’T RUN AND HIDE
I WON’T SET ASIDE
THIS LIFE THAT YOU GAVE TO ME

AND I WON’T CLOSE MY EYES
I WON’T RUN AND HIDE
I WON’T SET ASIDE
THIS LIFE THAT YOU GAVE TO ME
THIS LIFE THAT YOU GAVE TO ME
THIS LIFE THAT YOU GAVE TO ME

I Like The Way God Smiles

 

THE SUN SHINES IN THE MORNING
AND A BABY BLUE JAY SINGS
SHE SHAKES THE DEW FROM FEATHERS
ON HER PERFECT LITTLE WINGS

THERE AIN’T NO DOUBT ABOUT IT
OUR LORD HAS STYLE
I LIKE THE WAY GOD SMILES

AN APPLE ON A TREE HANGS
FOR A LUCKY PASSERBY
THE CLOUDS FORM WISPY SCULPTURES
IN A TURQUOISE COLORED SKY

THERE AIN’T NO DOUBT ABOUT IT
OUR LORD HAS STYLE
I LIKE THE WAY GOD SMILES

A RAINBOW WORLD OF COLOR
THE SMELL OF BAKING BREAD
A STARLIT SUMMER NIGHT OR
A BLOOMING ROSE IN RED
THE POWER OF A LOIN’S ROAR
A VIOLIN SO SWEET
A HAND TO HOLD ANOTHER HAND AND
HELP HIM TO HIS FEET

A BABY BOY IS BORN
AND THE WHOLE WORLD SEES THE LIGHT
KINGS AND WISEMEN TRAVEL FAR
TO SEE THE BLESSED SIGHT

THERE AIN’T NO DOUBT ABOUT IT
THE LORD HAS STYLE
I LIKE THE WAY GOD SMILES

(Whistle Break)

HEY NOW, JUST LOOK AT THAT SKY
EVERY STAR A BLESSING
TO OUR THANKFUL LITTLE EYES

THERE AIN’T NO DOUBT ABOUT IT
THE LORD HAS STYLE
I LIKE THE WAY GOD SMILES

YOU GOTTA BELIEVE IT
I LIKE THE WAY GOD SMILES

Divine

 

THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING
MOVING IN THE UNIVERSE
IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW YOU CALL THE NAME
WE ALL RECEIVE THE SPARK OF LIFE FROM GOD AT BIRTH
THE DIVINITY’S THE SAME

LET IT SHINE
LET IT SHINE
HOWEVER YOU EXPRESS IT – IT’S DIVINE
IT’S DIVINE
IT’S DIVINE
LET THE LOVE INSIDE YOU SHINE

DON’T NEED A HOLY WAR
IT’S A GAME WITHOUT A SCORE
AND YOU KNOW IT
WHEN WE CHOOSE TO LOVE
IT RAINS BLESSINGS FROM ABOVE
AND YOU KNOW IT
YOU KNOW IT

THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING MOVING IN THE UNIVERSE
SHINING ON THE MANY AND THE FEW
DIFFERENCES ARE ONLY IN THE LINES WE DRAW
OUR DIVINITY HOLDS TRUE

LET IT SHINE
LET IT SHINE
HOWEVER YOU EXPRESS IT – IT’S DIVINE
IT’S DIVINE
IT’S DIVINE
LET THE LOVE INSIDE YOU SHINE

Let Me Follow You

 

OH MY HEART – OH MY SOUL
LIGHTS RIGHT UP – WHEN YOU’RE IN CONTROL
LET ME FOLLOW YOU – I WILL FOLLOW YOU

OH MY HEART – OH MY SOUL
IS SO AT PEACE – WHEN YOU’RE IN CONTROL
LET ME FOLLOW YOU – I WILL FOLLOW YOU

YOU OPENED UP MY HEART AND FOUND A WORLD OF PAIN
MY MIND CONFUSED BY FEAR
YOU FILLED MY HEART WITH LOVE & JOY & HAPPINESS
I’M SO BLESSED TO HAVE YOU HERE

AH  AH       AH   AH

LET ME FOLLOW YOU – I WILL FOLLOW YOU
OH MY HEART – OH MY SOUL
LIGHTS RIGHT UP – WHEN YOU’RE IN CONTROL
LET ME FOLLOW YOU – I WILL FOLLOW YOU

NEVER THOUGHT I’D FIND A WAY TO LOVE THIS WORLD
TILL I BELIEVED IN LOVE
NOTHING COULD BE BETTER THAN A HEART THAT KNOWS
AND ONLY GROWS THE MORE IT SHOWS
AH  AH       AH   AH

LET ME FOLLOW YOU – I WILL FOLLOW YOU

A LOVE FOR ALL IS LOVE FOR ONE
SO LOVE THEM WHILE THEY’RE HERE
A WORK OF ART THAT’S NEVER DONE
LOVE NEVER DISAPPEARS

[LEAD BREAK]

OH MY HEART – OH MY SOUL
LIGHTS RIGHT UP – WHEN YOU’RE IN CONTROL
LET ME FOLLOW YOU – I WILL FOLLOW YOU

LET ME FOLLOW YOU – I WILL FOLLOW YOU
LET ME FOLLOW YOU – I WILL FOLLOW YOU

Bad News

 

HEY MR. BAD NEWS
YOU RATTLE UP MY SONG
HEY MR. BAD NEWS
I WON’T PLAY ALONG
HEY MR. BAD NEWS
PLEASE DON’T GET ME WRONG
I’VE GOT MY OWN SET OF RULES TODAY

SO DON’T BE CRYIN, AND KICKIN
OR PICKIN A FIGHT
I’M SEEING EVERY BUMP IN THE ROAD
IN A BRAND NEW LIGHT
THIS WORLD’S BEEN SHAKIN AND TURNIN
AND BURNIN FOR YEARS
IF I LET IT BREAK ME DOWN
I’LL BE DROWNING IN MY OWN SAD TEARS

(CHORUS)

I’VE GOT A SMILE ON MY FACE
AND IT FEELS SO RIGHT
I’M HOLDING ON TO LOVE
AND I’LL SLEEP WITHOUT A WORRY TONIGHT
THIS WORLD’S BEEN SHAKIN AND TURNIN
AND BURNIN FOR YEARS
IF I LET IT BREAK ME DOWN
I’LL BE DROWNING IN MY OWN SAD TEARS
(AND I DON’T WANNA CRY)

(CHORUS)

Smoke and Mirrors

 

Smoke and mirrors
Dust to dust
Everything fades away
But love is ‘til the end of time
Then for another day

Tossed around on a sea of life
And we are practiced in our art to deceive
We see before us fire and ice
But we’re only casting shadows on what’s hard to believe

Smoke and mirrors
Dust to dust
Everything fades away
But love is ‘til the end of time
Then for another day

And when we pull the veil away
Will the light then come shining in
We search for peace with our hearts at war
There are far too many questions and it’s time to begin – to know

[Guitar Solo]

Smoke and mirrors
Dust to dust
Everything fades away
But love is ‘til the end of time
Then for another day
But love is ‘til the end of time
Then for another day
Will we sleep until another day?
Here’s to another day.

Hush

 

HUSH I HEAR THE ANGELS SING
HEAVEN’S WORD ON GOLDEN WING
DON’T YOU HEAR THE ANGEL’S SONG
SINGING SWEETLY ALL NIGHT LONG

TIME IS A PRISON IF YOU LET IT BE
CHAINED SO TIGHT YOU CAN HARDLY BREATHE
BUT IN YOUR HEART YOU HOLD THE KEY
LOVE AND JOY WILL SET YOU FREE
LOVE AND JOY WILL SET YOU FREE

HUSH I HEAR THE ANGELS SING
HEAVEN’S WORD ON GOLDEN WING
DON’T YOU HEAR THE ANGEL’S SONG
SINGING SWEETLY ALL NIGHT LONG

[Harmoncia BREAK]

LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

HUSH I HEAR THE ANGELS SING
HEAVEN’S WORD ON GOLDEN WING
DON’T YOU HEAR THE ANGEL’S SONG
SINGING SWEETLY ALL NIGHT LONG
SINGING SWEETLY ALL NIGHT LONG

LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

Sunday

 

I REMEMBER
LONG AGO ON A SUNDAY
THE AIR WAS SWEET AND FINE

I KNEW THE WORLD WAS MINE
THAT SUNDAY
AND LOVE SPOKE SOFTLY IN MY EAR
“I’M WITH YOU NOW
THERE’S NOTHING HERE TO FEAR.”
LIGHT WAS STREAMING IN
I FELT A MY LIFE BEGIN AGAIN
THAT SUNDAY

NOW EVERYDAY IS SUNDAY
WHEN YOUR LOVE IS IN MY HEART
EVERYDAY IS SUNDAY
I FEEL YOUR HAND IN MINE AND EVERYTHING IS FINE
EVERYDAY IS SUNDAY

OH HOW YOU LOVE ME
LIKE A BIRD IN THE MORNING I WILL SING
LOVE’S SECRET CANNOT HIDE
MY VOICE WILL SOON CONFIDE
IT FEELS LIKE SUNDAY

NOW EVERYDAY IS SUNDAY
WHEN YOUR LOVE IS IN MY HEART
EVERYDAY IS SUNDAY
I FEEL YOUR HAND IN MINE AND EVERYTHING IS FINE
EVERYDAY IS SUNDAY

AND IF I STUMBLE ON MY WAY
I KNOW YOU’LL LOVE ME ANYWAY
YOU’LL HOLD ME TILL I FIND MY WAY
BACK TO THAT SUNDAY

I REMEMBER
LONG AGO ON A SUNDAY
THE AIR WAS SWEET AND FINE
I KNEW THE WORLD WAS MINE
THAT SUNDAY

{CHORUS OUT}

Faith Reaction

 

HEY!  DO YOU WANT IT
WANNA HAVE IT
CAN YOU FEEL IT

HEY DO YOU WANT IT
WANNA HAVE IT
CAN YOU FEEL IT

IT’S A QUARTER TO FOUR
I CAN’T SLEEP ANYMORE
I GOT THE BILLS, AND THE MORTGAGE
AND A LIEN ON THE CAR
BUT I BELIEVE IN MYSELF
AND I PUT IT IN ACTION
BECAUSE EVERYTHING YOU SEE
IS A FAITH REACTION

YOU CAN FIGHT EVERY DAY
FOR A PIECE OF THE PAY
IF YOU BELIEVE IN THE ONE
THERE’S ANOTHER WAY
SET YOUR MIND ON THE GOAL
TO GIVE YOUR DREAMS SOME TRACTION
‘CAUSE EVERYTHING YOU SEE IS A FAITH REACTION

HEY! DO YOU WANT IT
WANNA HAVE IT
CAN YOU FEEL IT

HEY DO YOU WANT IT
WANNA HAVE IT
CAN YOU FEEL IT

EVERYONE YOU LOVE, ANYTHING YOU SEE
EVERYTHING YOU WANT CAN BE YOURS
IF YOU SET YOUR HEART FREE
IF YOU ONLY HAVE FAITH THAT’S THE SIZE OF A PEA
YOU CAN GET IT DONE
IF YOU WANT IT TO BE

YOU CAN FIGHT EVERY DAY
FOR A PIECE OF THE PAY
IF YOU BELIEVE IN THE ONE
THERE’S ANOTHER WAY
SET YOUR MIND ON THE GOAL
TO GIVE YOUR DREAMS SOME TRACTION
‘CAUSE EVERYTHING YOU SEE IS A FAITH REACTION

HEY! DO YOU WANT IT
WANNA HAVE IT
CAN YOU FEEL IT
HEY! DO YOU WANT IT
WANNA HAVE IT
CAN YOU FEEL IT

(GUITAR BREAK)

WHERE YOU GONNA GO
WHAT YOU WANNA DO
WHO YOU GONNA BE
WELL IT’S ALL ON YOU
EVERYTHING YOU SEE
IS A FAITH REACTION
IT’S A FAITH REACTION

WHERE YOU GONNA GO
WHAT YOU WANNA DO
WHO YOU GONNA BE
WELL IT’S ALL ON YOU
EVERYTHING YOU SEE
IS A FAITH REACTION
IT’S A FAITH REACTION

IT’S A FAITH REACTION
EVERYTHING YOU SEE 
IT’S A FAITH REACTION
IT’S A FAITH REACTION
EVERYTHING YOU SEE
IT’S A FAITH REACTION [FADE OUT]

UNCOMPLICATE ME, UNCOMPLICATE ME
SO I CAN FINALLY BE MYSELF AGAIN

IN PERFECT PEACE

UNCOMPLICATE ME, UNCOMPLICATE ME
SO I CAN FINALLY BE MYSELF AGAIN

WHO IS YOUR FATHER?
WHO IS YOUR MOTHER?

[CHORUS]
I AM
BECAUSE MY FATHER TOLD ME SO
I AM
AND IT’S THE ONLY WAY TO GO

[BRIDGE]
I PUT MY HAND IN YOURS
AND YOUR HAND IN HERS
AND WE’LL WALK THROUGH THE WATER
TO THE OTHER SIDE
MY HAND IN HIS
AND JUST LIKE THIS
WE’RE GONNA WALK WITH EACH OTHER
TO THE OTHER SIDE

WHO IS YOUR HELP
WHEN YOU WORK AND LABOR?
I AM

WHO IS YOUR FRIEND?
WHO IS YOUR NEIGHBOR?
I AM
