Track Name: Where the Green Grass Grows
WHERE THE GREEN GRASS GROWS / “This is where the green grass grows!,” my little boy says as he runs to me / I reach out and take his hand then I pull him close to me / I hold that beautiful boy close to me / This is where the green grass grows / I'm sitting next to his hospital bed / Saying a prayer as I watch him sleep, then I reach out and put my hand on his head / I reach out and put my hand on his head / Where the green grass grows / Where the green grass grows / This is where the green grass grows / This is where a new chapter begins / In the middle of a thunderstorm God meets me there and takes me in / God reaches out and takes my hand / CHORUS / “This is where the green grass grows!,” my little boy says as he runs to me / CHORUS //
Track Name: Trust Me
TRUST ME / I woke up with a start / My bedroom was rearranged / Something wasn’t right / I knew that this was strange / They had climbed in through a window to see what they could find / They watched us as we slept / They’re playin’ with my mind / “Trust in me, trust in me” / They left no fingerprints / They left no DNA / But they left me with a feelin’ that will never go away / “Trust in me, trust in me / “If you trust in me, I’ll help you / I will keep you safe / They can’t hurt you because I love you” / My teeth are falling out / My hair is going away / I’m helpless and alone / I’m naked and afraid / “Trust in me, trust in me / “If you trust in me, I’ll help you / I will keep you safe / They can’t hurt you because I love you / “And if you call on me, I’ll listen / If you seek my face / They can’t hurt you because I love you” //
Track Name: Runaway
RUNAWAY / Waitin’ for me to turn back around / Waitin’ for me to wake up / Sometimes I run so far away / You still wait for me to come home / I’ve been runnin’ away from home / As my heart turns to stone / Remind me how to love / Take these fists and open them back up / Turn me around and open up my eyes / Show me things that only You can see / ’Cause I have been blind and I have lost my mind / Only You can save me / CHORUS / ’Cause I have been blind / and I have lost my mind / Only You can save me / Only You can save me / Only You can save me / Only you //
Track Name: Let a Dreamer Dream
LET A DREAMER DREAM / Some people tell me that my stuff is great / Other people tell me it’s my stuff they hate / What does it matter? As long as I’m dreamin’! / Red, green, pink and blue / What does that matter how that looks to you? / What does it matter? As long as I’m dreamin’! / Let a dreamer dream / Let a dreamer dream! / A little bit of this and a lot of that / The middle of July in a stocking cap / What does it matter? As long as I’m dreamin’! / “That’s impossible, it can’t be done!” / When’s the last time you tried to have some fun? / You should be dreamin’! / CHORUS / The first Dreamer lives up in heaven above / And the devil doesn’t want you to feel God’s love / Don’t let it stop you - keep on dreamin’! / Don’t let it stop you - keep on dreamin’! / Don’t let him stop you - keep on dreamin’! //
Track Name: Why?
WHY? / Why, oh why? / Do little children have to die? / If I had the answers it might be easier to take / But why, oh why? / There’s nothing like a daughter’s kiss / There’s nothing like a baby’s cry / The thought of losin’ a little one seems like more than I can take / But why, oh why? / The Lord He giveth / The Lord He takes away - He takes away / and we never know the day / So many questions / I want to run away from the pain / But I can’t run away / Little faces in my dreams / Then the little faces fade away / The Lord He loves His children but I watch them fade away / Why, oh why? / CHORUS //
Track Name: Not Alone
I’M NOT ALONE / He promised me He wouldn’t go / I’m not alone / He promised Me I wouldn’t die / He doesn’t lie / And He shows me / A love I’ve never known / And He strengthens me / He makes me whole / He promised me He’d forgive all I’ve done / My God is Love / He promised me He’d give me peace / He’s all I need / CHORUS // Jesus loves me this I know / for the Bible tells me so / Little ones to Him belong / They are weak but He is strong / Yes, Jesus Loves me / Yes, Jesus Loves me / Yes, Jesus Loves me / The Bible tells me so / Jesus loves me, He who died / Heaven’s gates to open wide / He will take away my sin and let this little child come in / CHORUS //
