All of All 05:57
She was my first born, the oldest of three I would learn a lot from her, even as a baby. The years they seemed to go by, they flew by way too fast If I could just get back one day, I would make it last Back when she was younger, maybe four or five I asked her this question, and her answer made me smile Do you love me only little, do you love me only all This is what she answered, I love you all of all She texted me from math class, when she was in high school Through an open window, I delivered Chinese food If you ask me why I did that, I’ll just smile and laugh I didn’t have a reason, I was just her dad Often times at bed time, I’d play a song for her Then I’d say goodnight and, I’d whisper in her ear Do you love me only little, do you love me only all She would whisper back to me, I love you all of all BRIDGE Only little, only all x 2 She is all grown up now, and she’s making her own way Someday she’ll have her own kid, and I’m pretty sure she’ll say Do you love me only little, do you love me only all Mom you know the answer, I love you all of all Only little, only all (repeats) All of all (repeats)

Home 05:20
This is not my home And I am not my own Time is drawing near When I will be leaving here I can’t wait to see The home that he’s made for me There will be no fear No more death and no more tears Streets that are made of gold No one is ever old I know that’s where I want to be And I sent my RSVP I tried and I cannot see Why so many don’t believe He was very clear But many just don’t want to hear But If you want to go You need to let Him know If I were you I would not wait Tomorrow it may be too late This is not a mystery The Son of God will set you free Don’t fall asleep today Or eternity might fly away I have settled up with Him And He took away my sin I am not my own It won’t be long and I’ll be home I am not my own It won’t be long and I’ll be home I am not my own It won’t be long and I’ll be home I am not my own It won’t be long and I’ll be home It won’t be long and I’ll be home It won’t be long and I’ll be home It won’t be long and I’ll be home It won’t be long and I’ll be home I am going home I am going home I am going home I am going home

Howard K 07:25
I was born back in ‘61 You were my father, I was your son We spent our entire lives apart It’s still a nagging feeling in my heart Over the course of my life I would think of you And I’m willing to bet that you thought of me, too A few years back I called to just say hi And you told me – hey, this is not a good time You came to my house one day And I really didn’t know just what to say We sat across the table eye to eye I think we said two words and one of them was “hi” You took a wrong turn many years ago The guilt was too much, you couldn’t let it go Did you ever wonder what might have been If you could start all over again My life took a very different turn There’s a lot of things that I have learned You can choose to forgive and choose to forget And go and live your life with no regrets Why things turn out a certain way No one knows and who can say Some things just aren’t meant to be As it turns out now, it’s ok with me. BRIDGE We don’t get to choose when we’re born or when we die But one thing we can never do is say no to the gift of God… Eternal Life I got a call you were fading fast I went to visit you, it would be my last You squeezed my hand but you couldn’t speak There was no one there except my sister and me Your eyes they spoke what your voice couldn’t say I said me and you, we’re ok The spirit of God was there that day Doing His work on Howard K I went back home after I left that day There was so many things that I wanted to say So I wrote it all down and told him what he should do And said Jesus is right there waiting for you I folded my letter and began to pray And I mailed it out that very same day I called the nurses station and said to expect A letter from me that I sent ‘em FEDEX They told me they’d read my letter to him The promise of God would free him from sin One week later my sister called And she told me that you were gone I don’t have to think what might have been Cause now I know, I will see you again What do you say… Howard K What do you say… Howard K What do you say… Howard K What do you say… Howard K

One Fine Son 06:10
I want to tell you a story, about a kid I know You’d know his name if I told you. And this is how the story goes He was born in the month of May; back in ’91 He grew up to be a musician. But he’s a lot more than that to me; you see… he’s one fine son CHORUS: He’s got a brand new song, I wanna sing along Every chance I get, I say how proud I am He goes to bed at midnight, with a new song in his heart When he wakes up in the morning, he’s figured out all of the parts He goes into the studio. Sometimes takes no more than a day When he’s finished the mix down He calls me in and then sits down And says hey dad… Just press play CHORUS: He’s got a brand new song, one I can sing along Every chance I get, Tell everyone how proud I am BRIDGE I won’t be surprised when I hear him on the radio or on TV Or read about him someday, in a full feature music magazine CHORUS: He’s got a brand new song (one fine son); I’d like to sing along (one fine son) Every chance I get (one fine son) Tell everyone how proud I am - Repeat END It’s not the end of the story; in fact it’s only just the start Wherever his future will take him, to me he’ll forever be… One fine son

Sing 06:02
She was born in December, in 1993 It was a special day, because…she was born on Christmas Eve Before too long she was jumpin’ around, clapping her hands and singing her songs She sang with all her heart and might; her little hands wrapped the microphone tight As she got older the songs would change It never mattered the vocal range It seemed almost every day, when she was home her mom would say… SING, SING, SING (X2) I entered her in a talent show, she sang and played, I got the video Before she played she told everyone, this is dedicated to my dad… and she won Never seemed scared in front of a crowd. And every time she made me proud Lots of folks would come up to me, and say that kid is amazing… SING, SING, SING (X2) I called her up one day, said I had a song to play It’s a song you’ve never heard, its ok dad, just say the word and I’ll sing She listened twice and I hit record, she sang it just right, word for word Everyone who hears that song says she sings like an angel…. SING, SING, SING (X2) It’s a strange feeling when they leave the nest; you did everything you could, did you do your best? But I know now she’ll be just fine, God has shown me many times She’s beautiful and grown up now, and it’s so amazing how… I can close my eyes and see, and my heart can hear her voice, when she sings, when she sings… SING, SING, SING (repeat) SING IT OUT SING IT LOUD SING IT PROUD (Repeat)

Thankful 04:46
Lord I am thankful for you, thankful for all that you do Thankful that I am a part of your plan, thankful that I am resting in the palm of your hand thankful that you’ve taken me inThankful for forgiving my sin, Thankful for my life, my kids and my wife, beginning with you, everyday is new LORD I AM THANKFUL FOR YOU X 2 Thankful for the gift of a song, Some of them are short, some are long Some of them don’t rhyme, and its different every time Some are born of pain, in sunshine, and rain LORD I AM THANKFUL FOR YOU X 2 Thankful for my house and my home, where I can boldly approach your throne Where I can pray away the storms of the day, where I can raise my voice unto you and say LORD I AM THANKFUL FOR YOU X 2 I couldn’t make it through without you, I wouldn’t even know what to do I wouldn’t dare to breathe, I wouldn’t dare to dream, I wouldn’t even Think I could close my eyes and see Everything I have, everything I am, I’m thankful that I’m resting in the Palm of your hand

I was born in the USA Back then things seemed to be ok But now so many things have changed Almost like its pre arranged America’s train is off the track My country’s gone and I want it back All the politicians in DC Harassing and abusing you and me It may already be too late I think we’re living in a police state Better be careful of what you say They’re listening to you at the NSA Chorus You used to be so strong and free Now you’re blind and cannot see This is my America Used to be so proud of ya This is my America How could you fall so far Nine guys in robes hold a vote and say Let’s take away they’re right to pray They turn around and then decide It’s ok to take the life of your unborn child In your face debauchery, Violence and pornography They don’t teach our kids the golden rule But they might get shot in a public school I always believed my whole life That marriage is between a man and wife If we turn our back on morality It’s game, set, match - why can’t you see? Chorus You used to be so strong and free Now you’re blind and cannot see This is my America Used to be so proud of ya This is my America How could you fall so far Bridge Black is white, left is right, day is night, wrong is right. Up is down, the world goes round. The ending comes with a deafening sound There is time for us I say, just humble ourselves and pray. And turn from our evil ways God will forgive and heal our land. What part don’t you understand? This is my America Used to be so proud of ya This is my America How could you fall so far This is my America Used to be so proud of ya This is my America How could you fall so far
