Track Name: Carry the Wounded
We all have known someone
Whose life has come undone
But careful lest you fall
For help you will call

The Word was my desire
To calm the raging fire
Within me burning
And solace I did find
My wounds He did bind

The trials were sent in love
To make me rise above
And like the prodigal son
Thy will be done

It's been some years I fear
Since I to Him drew near
I feel no pain inside

The trials were sent in love
To make me rise above
And like the prodigal son
Thy will be done

Will I ever feel Your love again
And is this empty heart something you'll mend
Carry the wounded
Can my mind and will on you depend
Or will I fade into oblivion
Carry the wounded, carry the wounded
You are the lost sheep I long to find
My love for you the unconditional kind
Carry the wounded
The plans I have for you are not to harm
But you must listen, this is your alarm
Track Name: When the Love is Right
The journey through our life can bring
A place and time for everything
A day of hope, a year of fears
A thousand smiles, a million tears

Our paths were meant to cross
And I couldn't forget you
No matter what the cost
We both had to see this through

Take my hand, take my heart
We will never be apart
Never be apart
Because I love you

Follow me and I'll lead you
Lead me and I'll follow you
Anywhere, anytime
When the love is right
The path is bright

From the Father of lights you came
And I know I'll never be the same again
A beautiful gift has been given to me
Your smiling face is all I see

The look that's in your eyes
And your smile that sets me free
Has made me realize
All that you see in me

Take my hand, take my heart
We will never be apart
Never be apart
Because I love you

Follow me and I'll lead you
Lead me and I'll follow you
Anywhere, anytime
When the love is right
The path is bright

Together now and forever
You are the one
You are my everything
To me you bring
The love that I have waited for

The look that's in your eyes
And your smile that sets me free
Has made me realize
All that you see in me
Our paths were meant to cross
And I couldn't forget you
The soul in you is the soul in me
The way that it was meant to be
Track Name: Oh Well
Can't help about the shape I'm in
I can't sing, I ain't pretty and my legs are thin
Don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to
Oh well...

Now when I talk to God I know He understands
He says "Stick by me, I'll be your guiding hand"
Don't ask me what I think of you
I might not give the answer that you want me to
Oh well...
Track Name: My Promise
Just a boy, you will not remember half
The things you're going through right now
How can I explain to you things don't
Always go the way you want them to
I know you feel confused

Your mother never wanted this for you
She did her best but that he wouldn't do

You and I are brought together now by
Wedding vows, vows that I have also made to you

Flesh and blood though we are not
I will love you as my own
Now God's love is all we've got
Together we can build a home

All I want for you is to remember this
Never will I turn my back on you
This world will lie to you and take you for a ride
How can I protect you from this path
Only God can show you that the lights in life burn fast
Never fosake your precious days of
Youth

I promise I will do my best for you
Listen to me and I will listen too
Track Name: Heads I Win, Tails You Lose
There's a place in the human soul
Where we want to be in charge of everything
Take control
It's not easy to lose the reigns
When we feel that we're responsible for all our gains

But the fact of the matter is
That the credit is only His
And the reason you take a breath
Is the one who has conquered death
Is a God of amazing grace
Who is willing to plead your case

Do you remember there was a day
When you gave your life, your all to Him in every way
But your love for Him soon grew cold
And you found yourself conforming to the world's mold

But the fact of the matter is
That the credit is only His
And the reason you take a breath
Is the one who has conquered death
Is a God of amazing grace
Who is willing to plead your case

When you think that you know best
And you think that you can ride
The wave out on the crest
Then the things that He said are mute
And the promises He made to you
You give the boot

By the time you think it over now
Things have gotten worse somehow
If you'd only given Him your all
He'd have caught you long before the fall
And you're looking at what could've been
It's tails you lose and heads I win

And you're looking at what might have been
It's tails you lose and heads I win!
