Track Name: Morning Moon
I have felt
so full before
but now I feel so hollowed out.
I never wrestled
with my faith
but of late I've been filled with doubt.
And why when things
fall right into place
can't they just stay where they are?
Oh God I'm growing
restless for home
Oh now it feels so far

Just like the morning moon
who asks the sun,
"Where did the night go?"
And in the light of day
she fades in the blue,
fades in the day glow.
Oh how the morning moon
always seems
so out of place,
and as time goes on
you cannot see her face.

I couldn't seem
to find myself,
oh how long this dark night has been.
I've been lost and stumbling
searching all around
until I could only look within.
And I find that in
emptying myself
that I have new room to fill
And slowly I'm transfigured and
glowing with new light
and a whisper says, "I am; be still".

Just like the crescent moon
who asks the sun,
"Where did the day go?"
And in the dusk of day
she lights up the blue,
and she has found home.
Oh how the growing moon
always seems
to find her place,
and as time goes on
she will not hide her face.
Track Name: Not Now
Walking home with you that night,
well, you walked and let me ride your bike
because my legs were tired from dancing with you.
You sat beside me on the swing
the silence between us was deafening,
and I looked up to the stars and prayed:
What should I do?I so badly wanted to kiss you,
but all I heard was,
"Not now... not now..."

*Oh why'd you say those words
the night I had to go
it's just not the right time, not now.
Oh why'd you use those words
those heavy little words
when you can't carry them
yeah, you don't know how.*

My last night in town
we walked to the front lawn and both laid down
and you began to pray such sweet words over me.
But what we didn't say
is what would happen when I flew away,
or how I'd feel if you were to say...
don't say it now...
not now...

**

Now though I'm far away
is your heart still in the same place,
or am I out of sight and out of mind?
Until the jasmine blooms fade
my heart doesn't want to be swayed,
not now.

Oh why'd you say those words
the night I had to go
it's just not the right time, not now.
Oh why'd you use those words
those three heavy words
when you can't carry them, you don't know how,
not now.
Track Name: Words Like Rainfall
When I hold
my rosary
gently in my hands,
and weave my fingers
through the beads,

their perfume kiss,
on my fingertips
the scent of rose hips
fills my nose
and I know
you are with me.

But I want to feel you with me.
I want to feel your touch.
I want to feel your lips pressed to my face.
I want to feel myself tremble
under the weight of your thumb
merely grazing me with your grace.

Oh how my heart
has become a stone
cold, hard, and alone,
though you have shown
yourself to me before.

Oh how I pray,
that you'll come back again
that I might see your hands
that I might feel your
love wash over me.

I want to feel you with me.
I want to feel your warmth.
I want to feel myself cradled in your embrace.
I want to be immersed
in your abounding love.
I want to sing the glory of your name.

I want to feel you with me,
feel the breath of your ghost, and hear
your words like rainfall in the trees.
I want to cry the gospel,
and to kneel at your feet.
I need your love to rain down over me.

Rain down, rain down,
rain down your love over me.
Rain down, rain down,
heal my heart and set my soul free.
