Track Name: Blue Room
Wake Up (my friend)

Verse 1
wake up my friend, and wipe your eyes
draw the shades you've pulled to shut the light out, the light out

this blue room that you hide within
is a waiting room for the giving in,
that's you child, that's you child

this fear you have has made you weak
it's made a home for you under these sheets, but he...
he's come to set you free

hope comes for you tonight

chorus
come my brother
His light is waiting
to bring life to our hearts

open your eyes
take His hand; we'll fly right through the night
on a one way love, on a one way love,
on a one way love

verse 2
there's a world outside, a world in bloom
a destiny he's made for you, so take my hand
let's run again

you wanna play it safe, but there's no such thing
eagles die without their wings,
you gotta choose to fly, or stay in here this blue room and wait to die

blue room, we're telling you goodbye

- chorus -

come my brother
His light is waiting
to bring life to our hearts (repeat)

Don't give up hope of the someday win
God of surprises always strikes again

take His hand; we'll fly right through the night
on a one way love, on a one way love,
on a one way love

Verse 1
if hope is fire, i am just a spark
in the rainstorm of a loveless world

and with the darkness reigning down
in your love i have found
the makings of a happy ending

pre chorus 1
for love, for life
i will stand and fight it
for hope, for right
my heart's a torch lord, come and light it

chorus
oh love, i am calling out
i am yours for the taking
oh love, without a doubt
this is the song of a heart awakening

verse 2
and the cross is a scandalous love
for the desperate and the poor
for the wretched, dirty whore
your love doesn't hesitate

to love the broken
to replace what's stolen
and no one will take it away

pre chorus 2
your love, your life
i can't begin to doubt it
your bread, your wine
i cannot live without it

chorus
oh love, i am calling out
i am yours for the taking
oh love, without a doubt
this is the song of a heart awakening

what if what's real is only what you can't see
if his love is real, who you gonna be

a little louder, his love is rock n roll to me

it's only rock n roll
(but all it's all i need)
i feel it deep in my soul
(it's a part of me)
won't you come, take control of me
love!

verse 2
who's the cool, who's the fool, who’s the bigshot
who are you in the room
trying to get bought
there's no light in the middle of a black heart
now, i've got a question

would you give up your soul?
would you give up your soul?
would you give it for all that is fading?

i've got pieces of gold
i've got peices of gold
it's his love and it's all that I’m after

chorus

bridge
would you give up your soul?
would you give up your soul?
would you give it for all that is fading?

i've got pieces of gold
i've got peices of gold
it's his love and it's all that I’m after
