Brendan MacFarlane - The Road

Here are the lyrics to my album - The Road

Footprints

said he gonna take me and show me
the right road the path to glory
said he gonna stand beside me
every single dark cold night make
my burdens light
when there's no one there but me

gonna be my footprints in the sand
gonna be my helping hand
gonna be my eyes to see
when there's no one there but me
gonna make my soul complete
help me believe
when there's no one there but me

said he gonna make me strong when love has gone
and my life is coming to an end
said he gonna take me home to be with loved ones gone
to be with my father again

gonna be my footprints in the sand
gonna be my helping hand
gonna be my eyes to see
when there's no one there but me
gonna make my soul complete
help me believe
when there's no one there but me

gonna be my footprints in the sand
gonna be my helping hand
gonna be my eyes to see
when there's no one there but me
gonna make my soul complete
help me believe
when there's no one there but me

gonna be my footprints in the sand
gonna be my helping hand
gonna be my eyes to see
when there's no one there but me
gonna make my soul complete
help me believe
when there's no one there but me

Get to heaven

when I get to heaven who will I see
I'll see my lord and glorious light that shined on me
I'll see my brothers talk to my sisters
and there my mother will stand
I'll see my father with a smile on his face
and a bible in his hand

oh when I get to heaven who will I see
I'll see my lord and his glorious light that shined on me

Gonna Know

a face so hard you would think it was stone
walks the streets in the name of the lord
said he coming back unless you change your ways
if you want to get to heaven keep a smile on your face

told me that train dont stop round here no more
aint been here since you were born
watched them people go by man you'd hear them scream
cause there only going one way if you know what I mean

you better live your life the best you can
or your never gonna make it to the holy land
and when its your time to go I swear the lords gonna know

you better live your life the best you can
or your never gonna make it to the holy land
and when its your time to go I swear the lords gonna know

Looking For Jesus

I was looking for heaven instead I found hell
I was walking the back streets where angels wont tread
I was searching for love but only found hate
in the eyes of the baptised who chased me away, who chased me away

and I'll keep on walking and I'll never stop searching
if you ask where I'm going I'll say looking for Jesus again....again

a man hoped for forgiveness...all he got was judged
persecuted by people who longed to see blood
he was thrown in a jail cell he had no home
by a sheriff with a bible who gambled his soul, gambled his soul

and I'll keep on walking and I'll never stop searching
if you ask where I'm going I'll say looking for Jesus again, I'll say looking for Jesus again

looking for Jesus again rpt, rpt….

Take My Soul

He said son I aint never gonna tell you a story
nothing but the truths gonna leave my lips
about the time I met old Lucifer
let me tell you man his name aint nick

said oh my my oh dear lord
sitting on my chair just a rocking on my porch
saying oh my my oh dear lord
never was I ever gonna let the devil take my soul

well he promised me fame and he promised me glory
promised me love but not for keeps
told me I was gonna live for ever
then he smiled and grinned his teeth

oh my my my blood run cold
eyes so dark you would swear they were coal
saying oh my my oh dear lord
never was I ever gonna let the devil take my soul

he said sign your name on a little piece of paper
shake my hand and we'll seal this deal
tell you friend you won’t ever be lonely
sit back and watch your dreams turn real

saying oh my my oh dear lord
it crossed my mind but I didn’t let it show
saying oh my my oh dear lord
never was I ever gonna let the devil take my soul

Soulja

I’m hurting and I’m certain it’s the end
and I’m learning the truth got no friends and got no help
I’m turning to the one place where I can find some strength
determined with my faith when I die its not the end

I’m a soldier, I’m a soldier for the lord
all I carry is a bible while the devil wields a sword
I know I’ll go to heaven
and I don’t need no proof
a soldier of love and that’s the gospel truth

I’m dying and I’m lying on the floor
both fighting and trying to get up so I can get up and walk
in the footsteps of Jesus heal people on the way
the devil he pursues me trying to strike me down in flames

I’m a soldier I’m enlisted with the lord
got the words of the father to keep me safe from harm
and I’ll see him in paradise I think it may be soon
a soldier of love and that’s the gospel truth

I’m a soldier, I’m a soldier for the lord
all I carry is a bible while the devil wields a sword
I know I’ll go to heaven
and I don’t need no proof
a soldier of love and that’s the gospel truth

Money Won’t

money won’t move a mountain
and money won’t calm the sea no it won’t
and money won’t buy you one more day
when one more day is all you need

some of them breathe for silver and some live for gold
and some of them die for diamonds and kill for blood...blood red ruby stones

money won’t heal a heartbreak and money won’t cure disease no it won’t
and money won’t buy you back your life when the lord says its time to leave

some of them dream of riches and some of them pray for more
and some of them lie and steal for it then walk on...walk on out through that door

money won’t move a mountain and money won’t calm the sea no it won’t
and money won’t buy you one more day when one more day is all you need
it won’t cure your heartbreak it won’t buy you one day
gold wont save your soul

money won’t heal a heartbreak and money won’t cure disease no it won’t
and money won’t buy you back your life when the lord says its time to leave

Where Were You

where were you when the times were hard
where were you that day
where were you when no hope was found
where were you in faith

and you heard come home dear son come home dear boy
your time is slipping away
and you heard come home dear child come home dear boy
your time is slipping away

where were you when the lord came around
where were you that day
where were you when the light shined down
on that darkest day

and you heard come home dear son come home dear boy
your time is slipping away
and you heard come home dear child come home dear boy
your time is slipping away

where were you when the hurt came around
where were you in pain
where were you when my saviours blood
washed my sins away

and you heard come home dear child come home dear boy
your time is slipping away
and you heard come home dear child come home dear boy
your time is slipping away

Tonight

I was walking I was talking to the spirit in the sky
saying why lord did you desert me …I never left you
was the reply
and the tears fell on that long road I've been walking
since I was born
in the wrong place at the wrong time well its been that way
for so long

then the night comes in and the black clouds fall around me
I scream in the dark won’t someone come and save me
come and save me...tonight

I was falling I was calling out to the saviour in the night
saying good lord why won’t you help me out
said I'll protect you until you die

and my thoughts turned to the future I was so so
scared to face
many hard times and heartaches not belonging
any place

then the night comes in and the black clouds fall around me
I scream in the dark won’t someone come and save me
come and save me...tonight

I was waiting I was praying to the angel in my mind
saying thank you for all your guidance
said I'll be here all your life

then the night comes in and the black clouds fall around me
I scream in the dark won’t someone come and save me
come and save me...tonight

Wont You Believe

I fade out I didn’t fade in
just a bleach white curtain calling me in
waving to me oh can’t you see the cross in the sky
and the angel who walks the streets
oh, oh, oh with bare feet

I jumped in I couldn’t get out
there's a real bad feeling hanging around
and its looking for me but I cant flee
the pain in my heart and the saint who walks the streets
oh, oh, oh looking for me

oh I'm hanging by a short thread and trouble floods my head
I read a scripture from the bible.....and I feel free
won’t you believe,  oh won’t you believe

I get up they can’t put me down just a broken man with the smile of a clown
and I know what I need and that’s to be free as the birds in the sky
and the good lord I pray I see... oh, oh, oh rest in peace oh, oh, oh

oh I'm hanging by a short thread and trouble floods my head
I read a scripture from the bible.....and I feel free
won’t you believe, oh won’t you believe

oh I'm hanging by a short thread and trouble floods my head

The Road

aint nobody gonna tell me how to live my life and not know me
but I’ve always thought if I loved you'd show me the road
so they pushed me and shoved me
trying to break me down till I'm on my knees
but I've always thought if I loved you'd show me the road

so don’t cry for me no, no
don’t shed a tear on the day that I go
so don’t cry for me no, no
for I'll be there waiting
for you to show me the road

And those hard times come knocking
and you feel your whole world caving in
but always believe if you love
he'll set you free

so don’t cry for me no, no
don’t shed a tear on the day that I go
so don’t cry for me no, no
for I'll be there waiting
for you to show me the road
