about

In order to "apologize" for not releasing anything for close to 532 years, I am releasing this 3 song ep. This is a taste of things to come on my full length album. I hope you enjoy! I worked hard to whip this up.

Track Name: Lift You Higher
I know a man
who can ease
all your fear

He's speaking now
if you have
ears to hear

Don't let your mind
drag you down
into dread

Cause you're in his hand
and his heart
holds you dear

You've done your best
get to rest
and now I know you're gonna pass this test
I know the worst is just the waitin
but just recall your situation

You gotta have faith
You gotta have love
you gotta have courage commin from above
you gotta have hope to light the fire
and just trust me, He'll lift you higher!

I know a king
who has been
in your place

who's cup seemed too great
such a task
for him to face

But He gave it all
so that you
might see life

So leave all behind
that distracts
from His grace

You've done your best
get to rest
and now I know you're gonna pass this test
I know the worst is just the waitin
but just recall your situation

You gotta have faith
You gotta have love
you gotta have courage commin from above
this adventure's just beginning
so go with Christ and you'll be winning

I know your fear
fights for control
but He's always near
there to console

You've done your best
get to rest
and now I know you're gonna pass this test
I know the worst is just the waitin
but just recall your situation

You gotta have faith
You gotta have love
you gotta have courage commin from above
you gotta have hope to light the fire
and just trust me, He'll lift you higher!
Track Name: Forgotten
You're living life alone
or so I've ascertained
I need strength within my bones
to cut away the pain

I've tried many times before
to bring you into light
but I'm left sighing on the floor
and crying through the night

It's easy to give up
and difficult to breathe anymore
but your sins have blow away
hold no regret because they're forgotten

But I will not give up
I'll fight until I die in this war
but your ways can't stay the same
so come forget because they're forgotten

Yeah, it's like
rushing water flowing out of my lungs
it's living water in a loaded gun
it's so much more than imagined by inferior minds
it's larger than the concept of the table of time

It's powerful
and it is living and breathing
it's more important than my eating and drinking

I'm coming at you with a heart full of love
this love came from a place that is so far above
but you, you won't listen to a word that I say
but for you, you got me praying for your soul every day

I'm saying
Father forgive him he does not know his wrong
Jesus Christ please save him from his spiritual bonds
Yes, it is a struggle but we aint gonna fail
we are victorious; the gates of hell won't prevail

It's easy to give up
and difficult to breathe anymore
but your sins have blow away
hold no regret because they're forgotten

But I will not give up
I'll fight until I die in this war
but your ways can't stay the same
so come forget because they're forgotten

I've had about enough
it's harder now to dream than before
and I wish things hadn't changed
but I guess that's life 'cause they're forgotten

And the future may be tough
and I'll pray until my knees break the floor
but I just can't play this game
so remember me when you're forgotten
Track Name: Welcome Home
I recall those summer days
we nearly froze to death
now I regret my bitter ways
and sigh with every breath

But now I trust with every prayer
I'm covered by the tree
because I didn't see the billionaire
that you would someday be

AJ welcome to your home
now you're not alone
captive in your skin

AJ death has lost its sting
now the angels sing
AJ welcome home again

When I reach the promised land
and see you face to face
I can't wait to take your hand
and give you my embrace

I once thought my patience grew
and you had been the key
but it was nothing when compared to yours
you had to have with me

Up where the stars are born
and lightning strikes the holy ground
up in the living solar fields
forever embracing heaven's arms

all of us waiting here
until that great trumpet sounds
it's just around the bend
i can't wait to see you my friend so pray

AJ welcome to your home
now you're not alone
captive in your skin

AJ death has lost its sting
now the angels sing
AJ welcome home again
