about

This is a compilation of home grown classics recorded between 1999 & 2009 at my studio in Los Angeles, KeepMovinWest: I've been toying with the idea of putting them out for some time, some of the songs were meant to be a part of the Broken Bones Rejoice CD but weren't included because we either ran out of time in the studio or they just didn't seem to fit, or for some reason I liked the demo version better! Others are songs I've written over the last few years and I just wanted you to hear them. A few of the songs here will be featured on the next studio CD that has a working tile of "Living Stone" it's about half way finished and features some of my favorite musicians and is recorded old school with a live band in the studio. The versions here are completely different but I think they stand up in their right. So why now? Good question let me know when you figure out the answer. Anyway besides all that I like these songs and versions as they are fairly raw and personal. I hope you do too.

Track Name: Revolution
Inner Revolution
E D E
The world keeps turning and the morning comes again
G A E
it's a revolution In a revolution,
One generation goes and another generation comes
the earth keeps turning beneath the burning sun
The wind is blowing south it's song amongst the trees
I can hear it's chorus whisper along the northern leaves
My heart was empty but Your love fills me again
it's a revolution Inner revolution,

C G
In the center of a spot light floor spinning round and round
D A
Don't feel my feet touching down all I wanna do is hold that sound
Running through a revolving door spinning up and down
to the secret place where your voice is found
see the 24 casting down their golden crowns E////

The rivers flow down but the ocean is not full it's a revolution in a revolution..
forever is in our hearts without beginning without end
that is has already and to be has been
A rain cloud empties I see a man grasp for the wind
I cannot turn away from your face your light just draws me in
My heart was empty but Your love has healed the pain

Inner revolution,it's a revolutionx3

You made the light shine out of the darkness
You made the light shine in our heart
You gave us this light and the knowledge of your glory
In the holy face of Christ


(Chorus) A G

There is comfort for the broken hearted

Yours is the Life poured out to redeem us
For us to know the mystery

Your face Your face Your Face full of grace etc...

WAIT YOU ARE GREAT

G C G
I've got to sing a song of Your great love
I've got to speak out a part of Your plan
and I will shout to the 4 winds to blow a wild fanfare
and for everyone now to raise up their hands

D/F# Em D/F# G
You've met me where I am and You healed my wounds
You lead me by the hand deep into the inner room

C G/B Am G
And I drink from your cup
And I eat of Your bread
and the promise of Your love
will again sooth my mind

G C G
Sitting in a room I see the fan is spinning just like the circles I've been running in
but the cool breeze reminds me again of You
So I wait for the sweet sound of Your voice
and for this love song to be reveled

D/F# Em D/F# G
I know what You want for me is better then what I want for myself
I know what You give to me is greater then all the riches of the world

C G/B Am G
So I wait for you right here
and I long to hear your voice
and I dream of the day I'll see Your face
and I know yes I know that You are great.
