Threadbare

All I, all I have You gave me
I am me, I am me Ďcause of You
My soul, my soul rolls in riches
Invisible, but true, yea

Chorus:
Iím a Threadbare Millionaire
Iím a Threadbare Millionaire
Less of me, and more of You
Iím a Threadbare Millionaire
Iím a Threadbare Millionaire
Finally, believing You
Oh, believing You

Your love, Your love drenches me
I sing, I sing, I overflow
Your floods, Your floods wash me clean
So only gold will show, yea

Chorus

Bridge:
Where my treasure is, my heart is also
I will resist a world of false hope
Lose it all to gain You
Yea, yea, yea

Butterfly

Beat up and tired like a worn out shoe
How many miles have I walked with you?
Mind if I stop and take a breath or two?
At this moment in time, itís an uphill climb

Sleepless nights, lifeless days
On this mounting mountainous malaise
Blacks and whites seem more like grays
At this moment in time, itís grace I must find

Chorus:
I know one day Iíll be soaring high
Cocoon will break; Iíll be a Butterfly
Under Your watchful eye, purify me

Uncovering what Iíd much rather hide
Like a stubborn garment I take off my pride
Iím bowing down low, deep inside
At this moment in time, itís Your heart and mine

Blue Sky (9/11)

Blue, blue sky
Youíve got your briefcase and coffee, we kiss goodbye
News, near and far
Itís time to pray
Meant to tell you, you looked so fine today

Without a hint, without a sign
What was mine was stolen
But only for a time

Chorus:
And the smoke stings my eyes
But I will hold my head up high
I write your name on a dusty door
And sweep away the ash of war
Through the billowing high rise
I will search for bluer skies
And I will sing this song of hope
Yes I will sing this song of hope

Black, black sky
Two twins fall as hate takes us by surprise
I, I reach for you
But youíre not there
Meant to tell you, God is closer than the air

Without a hint, without a sign
What was mine was stolen
But only for a time

No Strings Attached

Check out the road that leads to Jericho
Where a stranger bleeds
A neighbor bends down low and offers what he had hoped to keep
He gives his time, he gives his money for the unlovely
Gives what he did not owe to pay the debt of an enemy

And it wonít be paid back, wonít make the headlines
Itíll only make a mark on somebodyís life

Chorus:
No strings attached
Love flows free of charge
No strings attached
Love flows
Make a mark on somebodyís life
On somebodyís life

Check out the party down in Bethany
Where the air is sweet
Mary pours her whole life savings on Jesusí feet
She doesnít seem to hear ridicule or feel disgrace
She only sees the look of love on her Masterís face

And it wonít be paid back, wonít make the headlines
Itíll only make a mark on somebodyís life

Chorus

Check out the road that leads to Calvary
Where a cross still waitsÖ

Love is Calling (Katieís Song)

Teddy bears in the corner, ballet shoes on the floor
Where is she going? Whoís that knocking at her door?
A smile runs across her face. Can you see her heart soar?

Chorus:
Love is calling, love is calling
Calling out her name
Love is calling, love is calling
Calling out her name
And sheíll never be the same

She said she always wanted to marry someone like her Dad
And she got what she prayed for and soon heíll have her hand
A smile runs across her face. Oh isnít love grand?

Make Believe

Maybe I do
And then again, maybe I donít
Maybe I will
And then again, maybe I wonít

If you donít like what you see
I can change the view
You think you know the real me
But you donít have a clue

Chorus:
Iím playing Make Believe
Where reality is up to me
Iím playing Make Believe
Oh what a tangled web I weave

Way down deep inside
I am only me
If you caught a glimpse
Would you still love me?
They say that only truth
Will ever set me free
From this ball and chain
This game of Make Believe

Adamís Song (Remember When)

I want to walk with You
In the cool of the day
The way we use to long ago
And You would call my name
And I would answer You
But this time I wouldnít have to go

Broke Your heart with my selfish crime
How I long to turn back time.

Chorus:
I want to hear Your heartbeat
I want to look into Your eyes again
Remember when?
I want to hear Your footsteps
Dancing Ďround me in the Garden
Remember when?

No greater love is given
Then when one lays His life down
Lays His life down for a friend
With awesome tenderness
With eyes so rich in sorrow
You whispered, ďThis is not the endĒ

ďThereís a PlanĒ, You said, as You cried
ďSomeday youíll be back by my sideĒ

God is on your side

I was waiting for You to mend my broken heart
But instead You chose to mend my point of view
And I was waiting for You to change my story
But instead You helped me read between the lines

When I was crying out to You
I didnít know that You were crying too
You were always holding me
Even when my eyes just couldnít see

Chorus:
Through the heartache, through the pain
Thereís a truth that stands out plain
God is on your side
He may choose a different route
But one that bears the greatest fruit
God is on your side

I was waiting for You to bring my trials to an end
But instead You brought me to where Your grace begins
And I was waiting for You to help me know the reasons why
Instead You helped me know the One Who knows all things

When I was crying out to You
I didnít know that You were crying too
You were always holding me
Even when my eyes just couldnít see

Slow Down for Love

Well youíre sprinting life when itís supposed to be a marathon
Hey come on, lighten up, sip a little slower from your cup
Loving and laughing, looking into somebodyís eyes
Busyness lies to my soul and tries to steal what makes me whole

Chorus:
While Iím living in this fast lane
God is trying make something plain
Only one thing will remain
Only Love
Well Iím gonna see Him someday
And I donít want to hear Him say
ďI had a much better wayĒ
Slow down for Love

Donít go for the gusto, go for the depth and grow
Accept no substitute, give the seed time to take root
Life is an ocean, I want to dive in and get wet
With no regret that I wasted a single drop I could have tasted

Chorus

Bridge:
Thereís a lesson I am learning
Oh, my heart can feel it burning
Itís wisdom from above
Slow down, slow down, slow down for Love
Slow down

Home

Chorus:
Hey, hey I want to go home
Hey, hey I want to go home
ĎCause I know Your heart is where I belong
Hey, hey I want to go home, I want to go home

My eyes are fixed on the empty sky
I daydream Iím a newborn butterfly
Shed these chains for some wings
How I long for what tomorrow brings

Chorus

How long Ďtill I see Your face
Until I sink into Your sweet embrace
Donít know the hour or the day
Oh, come quickly, come and take me away

Bridge:
Loving You, needing You
Missing You, dying to be home with You
