LYRICS: FEELINGS FADE (WALK ON FAITH) Here we go, with another day Just goin through the motions, acting out the play It’s hard to know, just what to say yea No one wants to be the author, of words that fade away Sometimes we’ve got to walk on faith Look ahead to our tomorrows Don’t look back to yesterday There are times, we’re gonna walk on faith We won’t listen to our feelings Cause feelings fade away And there are days, when we’ve gone too far Lost sight of where we’re going, and we stumble in the dark But we keep going, cause it’s been so long We’ve run into resistance, but decide to carry on Sometimes we’ve got to walk on faith Look ahead to our tomorrows Don’t look back to yesterday There are times, we’re gonna walk on faith We won’t listen to our feelings Cause feelings fade away Sometimes they fly, sometimes they grieve They tell the truth, and then deceive They point the way, help us choose But when a choice is made, then it’s time to move Because feelings fade away © Mark Herring 2015, Drew Faith Music (SESAC)

LYRICS: WE KNOW, IF THEY KNEW You try to plan it all out, make it turn out right But every day, it's the same old fight And you have good intentions, your motivations are pure But some days, even you're not sure It's late when you get home again, your time is hard to keep Yea your body's tired, but you still can't sleep And every night it keeps playing, again and again in your head With every time they hurt you, with every word that was said But I know, if they knew Just how hard you try Then I know That they wouldn't be so hard on you It's a thankless job, hard work without any pay And all you ask, is a little thanks But you're not one to give in, cause you've been through it before And you know, you'll go through it again And sometimes I can't find the words, to say at the right time And some days I don't take the time, to say the right words But I know, and you know Just how hard you try And we know, if they knew... So hard on you ... They wouldn't be so © Mark Herring 2015, Drew Faith Music (SESAC)

LYRICS: PICTURE FRAMED LIES So what am I doing wrong, that I’ve made such a mess I thought following my heart, was the secret to success But late at night I close my eyes and I pretend not to see No matter what I do or get, I just can’t be happy Have you seen it in my eyes When I walk through the door Something’s missing here that I’m still looking for Have you heard it in my voice When I whisper your name Like a gentle breeze it’s here then gone again SO WHAT are we doing wrong, that we feel so out of place You’d think we had it all, judging by the smiles on our face The pictures on the wall, tell stories of good times But real life is lived between the lines Yea real life, is lived outside Those PICTURE FRAMED LIES Have you felt it in my touch, when I caress your skin Like the summer heat it’s here then gone again It’s like something you can’t hold, when it’s not yours to keep Try as you might, you still must set it free SO WHAT are we doing wrong, that we feel so out of place You’d think we had it all, judging by the smiles on our face The pictures on the wall, tell stories of good times But real life is lived between the lines Yea real life, is lived outside Those PICTURE FRAMED LIES GOTTA LIVE your life outside, those picture framed lies Gotta see straight through the lies... © Mark Herring 2015, Drew Faith Music (SESAC)

LYRICS: MESSAGE TO YOU I’ll be wherever it is you are I will be your shooting star A wish for you Think of me when you wake up I’ll be the sugar in your cup I melt for you AND I’M SENDING a message out to you And I’m sending a MESSAGE out to YOU Doesn’t matter how far away you go The things in your head you’ll always know They’re still with you No matter what oceans you may cross Or how many jungles you pass through They’re still with you AND I’M SENDING a message out to you And I’m sending a MESSAGE out to YOU And I don’t really want to be, the one to break bad news But you’ll have to find the answers, on your own On your own Just QUITE DOWN and you may find That still small voice inside your mind It’s always there At night when you lay down to sleep And pray the Lord your soul to keep It’s always there AND I’M SENDING a message out to you And I’m sending a MESSAGE out to YOU © Mark Herring 2015, Drew Faith Music (SESAC)

LYRICS: WHAT DO YOU THINK IT'S LIKE (OVER THERE) What do you think it’s gonna be like over there Imagine worlds like nothing we’ve known here No more pain and no more lows No goodbyes after hellos What do you think it’s gonna be like over there There’ll be mountains, there’ll be rivers There’ll be faces of people that I’ve known There’ll be music, and there’ll be laughter And we’ll be welcomed as we finally make it home So what do you, think it’s like up there What do you think it’s gonna be like over there Imagine worlds with truth and justice there Where no one steals to feed their greed Children live free from disease What do you think it’s gonna be like over there Well I see mountains, and I see rivers And I see faces of people that I’ve known I hear music, and I hear laughter And I feel welcomed as I finally make it home So what do you, think it’s like Yea, what do you, think it’s like What do you, think it’s like up there Precious times we will remember Hold each other close like I’ve never gone Can’t wait to see you when you get here Might be a while But till then I’ll keep you in a song There’ll be music, there’ll be dancing There’ll be faces of people that we all love We’ll be singing, and we’ll be laughing And we’ll be welcomed as we finally make it home So what do you, think it’s like up… here? © Mark Herring 2015, Drew Faith Music (SESAC)

LYRICS: HOW WILL I RESPOND The more I think about it Don’t want to think no more And inside I’m shouting As the tear drops hit the floor I’m down on my knees Down on my knees Never thought this would happen But it happened to me So HOW WILL I RESPOND NOW? Will I ever be free again? I’m down on my knees Down on my knees © Mark Herring 2015, Drew Faith Music (SESAC)
