Déjà vu For Future

God

1
The ruler of the universe, doesn’t sit alone,
Asking what he should do next.
He made all that there is you know,
And could keep us safe for ever more.
He gave us life, and if we’re true –
We might live for ever.
We might live for ever.
We might live for ever, too.

2
Father of all people here we don’t like the devil.
Tell us what could he try next?
We’ve heard it all before you see.
Please give us peace for heaven’s sake.
You give us life, and we’ll be true –
Should we live for ever.
Should we live for ever.
Should we live for ever, too.

3
Keeper of our hearts and souls, we don’t really know.
Surely you know where we’ve been.
Please tell us now our destiny,
That you’ll give us love for ever more.
You are our hope, and we love you –
And can we live for ever?
Can we live for ever?
Can we live for ever, too?

Job

1
Job, how they queued to hate us.
Job, how they queued to slate us.
What was it was your crime?
Was yours just the same as mine?
Why? Why did they do it?
Was it you who went and blew it?
You were a rich man too.
Why did they do those things to you?

2
Job, what was their reason?
Was it them who called it treason?
You were a rich man too.
Why did they do those things to you?
Job, did you really take it?
Just like me or did you fake it?
Job were we really bad?
Or are those people really mad?
Were you asked, if you should,
Believe in God like they never could?

3
Why? Why did they do it?
Was it me who went and blew it?
I was a rich man too?
Why do they do those things they do?
Job, why did they do it?
Was it us who went and blew it?
You were a rich man too.
Why did they do those things to you?

Refrain
Job, now I understand.
If you were here, would you lend a hand?
Would I help you?
Would I help you?

Faith

Refrain
Away with despair, I am living.
Away with despair, set me free.
Away with despair I am living.
Take away this despair, from me.

Chorus
All of the time we are learning.
Most of the time.
All of the time.
We have to, just to survive.

1
Take a song, a new song.
Sing it like you should.
See emotions deep within,
Crying like I could cry.
What are you?
What am I?
Why do we live?
Why do we die?

2
Take a heart, a young heart.
Fill it full of joy.
Form with pride, the love inside,
Knowledge like it should be.
What is faith?
What is hope?
Why do we learn?
How would we cope?

3
Take a life, just any life.
Make it full of giving.
It can’t fail, must prevail.
Lasting like a dream should.
Who are you?
Who am I?
Why do we love?
Why do we cry?

Trying

Chorus
They can laugh away, laugh away, that crying.

1
Jill is young and pretty, lonesome too.
Jill is free, but mainly feeling blue.
Happy times just happen in her dreams.
Or so it seems,
And her dreams, just won’t, come true.

2
Kim is young, and pretty much the same.
Time seems short, and flowing down the drain.
Would it be if love were all around,
Soon they’d have found,
That their dreams, just might, come true?

3
The young at heart are very insecure.
Life is cruel, but mainly life is pure.
Happy times will follow, and with love,
Heavens above, and their dreams, will come true.

Refrain
We could waste their lives on useless tears.
They could spend their time just trying,
But with a little thought, and love around,
They can laugh away, laugh away, that crying.

I Have Walked

(So Many Miles)

Chorus
I have walked so many miles since I left home that day.
I’ve come to see the place where I was born.
I have come so many miles already on the way,
And I haven’t seen a soul that I know.

1
Is anybody here going my way?
I’m off to see the place where I grew up.
Is anybody here going my way?
I need to see the place where I was born.
Is anybody here going my way?
It’s a lonely road to walk through this storm.

2
Is anybody here going my way?
I’m lonely, and I need a friendly ear.
Is anybody here from my day?
If only I could rise above this cloud.
Is anybody here from my way?
I need somebody’s love to keep me warm.

3
Does anybody here know me?
I used to live some way down the road.
Does anybody here even know my name?
I seem to have a rather heavy load.
Has anybody here heard of me?
I’m the man who left to follow God.

Tears Stain My Eyes

1
Soon there are no heroes.
Only children to be proud of.
No secrets to take to the grave.
Once there was in my life, a longing to belong.
A dream of being equal, to sing my humble song.

2
Days they are for living.
Some you can call your own,
But mostly they’re for giving of your love.
Once there was in my life, no reason to go on.
No dream of being happy, though I had done no wrong.

3
Déjà vu for future.
A thousand years of bliss.
Living for the moment, sharing this.
Once there was in my life, no reason to get by.
A lesson there for someone.
Tears stain my eyes.
Tears stain my eyes.

Gone Forever?

Chorus
And you’ll know that people love you,
When those people show you,
Just how much they care.

1
Oh well I never felt so low in my life,
As the day they locked that door.
As I looked at my life through my memories,
At where my love waxed cold.
I could see all those times on my bended knees,
And those prayers came back once more.

2
I never saw such a thing in my life,
As the way things went that day.
All the dreams that I had. All that I had planned,
All upp’d and went away.
With tears that I’ve known, and the fears I’ve shown,
The good times seemed gone to stay.

3
They say it is a hospital,
But in fact it is a prison cell.
All the hope they’ve destroyed with means they’ve employed.
And the pain, and misery.
People die inside that they’ve tried to hide.
Yet they say that they made them well.

Candlelit Dinners

Chorus
She can hear a pin dropping in her empty home,
But you can’t see her tears falling,
She’s there all alone.

1
Candlelit dinners with flowers and love is living for Annie.
Escort’s come out of the blue to play with her heart.
Somebody calls her the queen of social living,
But all of the time in this dream she is breaking her heart.

2
There are no candlelit dinners with flowers for people like Annie.
Escort’s coming out of the blue to play with her heart.
Nobody calls her there is no social living,
And being alone in this world she is tearing apart.

3
Depressed and cold from being outcast is killing our Annie.
People coming out of the blue to borrow her soul.
Somebody calls her the queen of holy living,
But just being used in her life she is falling apart.

Refrain
My, Oh My, does Annie try.
Walks around in a trance.
Dreaming all day, people all say,
Annie’s away with the fairies,
Annie’s away with the ….

The Bogey Man

Chorus
The bogey men are real.
They want to play.
The bogey men are mad,
Make them away. (As in prevention)

1
Horrified women too scared to walk,
Even by the light of the day.
People searching under their beds.
Maybe your old gran.
And what is she so afraid of?
It’s the bogey man.

2
Terrified children too scared to cry.
Or tell all their fears to you.
Lonely old granddad’s too scared to love,
Stuck in their prison homes.
And who are they all condemned by?
It’s the bogey man.

3
Glorified lawmen too rich to care,
And send all the bogey’s to hell.
Complacent reporters don’t tell it all.
Maybe part of their plan.
And who are they all so rich by?
It’s the bogey man.

Holy Annie

Chorus
For all the times we made her weep,
Yes all those times that we made her weep,
We should be saying,
A prayer to God for Annie’s soul to keep.

1
She never saw the softer side of life.
Never felt a hand of comfort in her time.
There was no shoulder for her to cry upon,
So she made a lot of saying;
I feel fine.

2
She had dreams of being loved some day.
Love is what we need to keep us going.
But there always must have been some kind of catch,
So she made a lot of saying;
Love is knowing.

3
You must of seen the pain in her eyes.
As she looked at death all on her own.
But the faith she had made her not afraid of dying,
So she made a lot of saying;
I’ll die alone.

On A Hill Far Away

First Chorus

Oh (So) I’ll cherish the cross.
The old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down.
I will cling to the cross,
The old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

Chorus

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down.
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.

1.
On a hill far away, stood an old rugged cross, the emblem of suff – ‘ring and shame;
And I love that old cross,
Where the dearest and best, for a world of lost sinners was slain.

2.
Oh, that old rugged cross, so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me.
For the dear Lamb of God left his glory above, to bear it to dark Calvary.

3.
In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine, a wondrous beauty I see.
For ’twas on that old cross
Yeshua suffered and died, to pardon and sanctify me.

4.
To the old rugged cross, I will ever be true,
It’s shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then he’ll call me some day, to my home far away, where his glory for ever I’ll share.

George Bennard 1873-1958
