Let the light shine on my face
As we rise up to a brand new day
I can see clearly there is hope, there is hope

It’s been a mystery to me
Where I am and where I’ll be
The day you opened up my eyes….I’m alive

Ooh – Rise up and rise up again
Ah – Oh let the journey begin
Ooh – Rise up and rise up again
Ah – It’s time to let the love in

I’ve been calling you in life
To fill this empty space inside
You are the way, the truth, the life
Bringing me to my father

You’re everything I need
To fill me up and make me see
The day you opened up my eyes…to shine

Ooh – Rise up and rise up again
Ah – Oh let the journey begin
Ooh – Rise up and rise up again
Ah – It’s time to let the love in

One, One
We can be one together, forever
One, One
We can be one together, forever

Ooh – Rise up and rise up again
Ah – Oh let the journey begin
Ooh – Rise up and rise up again
Ah – It’s time to let the love in
Oh let the journey begin…
Oh let the journey begin…

BROTHER TO BROTHER

There’s a cause that’s right for you
You’re made for it to see it through
Do you have the strength to journey on
To walk the walk, and see it done
And it’s up to us to bring it on
Gone are the days we sit around
The time is now…

From a man who has learned through many years
To the one who will face uncertain fears
We stand … Brother to Brother
Arm in arm, hand in hand
We raise the flag across the land
We will make a change, a change … brother to brother

It’s a dream that we can make
Can you feel it now, its gonna take
An attitude from me and you
To love the ones who don’t love you
Now’s the day to break the chains
Gone are the wounds that never heal
We can make this real

From a man who has learned through many years
To the one who will face uncertain fears
We stand … Brother to Brother
Arm in arm, hand in hand
We raise the flag across the land
We will make a change, a change … brother to brother

What can we do to bring all of the truth
And let out the banner unfurled
What can we do to live all this truth
And carry the light to the world

From a man who has learned through many years
To the one who will face uncertain fears
We stand … Brother to Brother
Arm in arm, hand in hand
We raise the flag across the land
We will make a change
From a man who has learned through many years
To the one who will face uncertain fears
We will make a change, a change
Brother to brother

NOW NOT NEVER

Words and Music by Billy Smiley and Peter Andrew Furler

You’re not on your own, we’re here together
Chasing down a dream – it’s now not never
Following our hearts through storms together
Almost made it there  – it’s now not never

This journey covers many miles and roads
And where it leads no one knows
It’s got you drifting through the motions in fields of grey
It keeps you running back to yesterday, yesterday…

You’re not on your own, we’re here together
Chasing down a dream – it’s now not never
Following our hearts through storms together
Almost made it there  – it’s now not never

I took this train at such an early age
A one way ticket outta here
These wheels are stirring up the dust of the past
Feels there’s no escaping yesterday, yesterday

You’re not on your own, we’re here together
Chasing down a dream – it’s now not never
Following our hearts through storms together
Almost made it there  – it’s now not never

When life puts you down on your back
You say you give up, don’t know where you’re at
but when you’ve got someone praying for you
Ya never know what that prayer will do…

You’re not on your own, we’re here together
Chasing down a dream – it’s now not never
Following our hearts through storms together
Almost made it there  – it’s now not never

INDEPENDENCE DAY

Words and Music by Billy Smiley, Mark Gersmehl, and Rick Florian

Listen to our declaration, listen to our testament
We’ve been given a revelation, we are sure of where we stand
So let the banner be unfurled, we’ve found the light of hope in a dying world

Hear the myth of modern man, you’re the god of your own land
They call you weak a spineless fool, say you’ve given up your right to rule
But I have been to the land of me and I know I was never free
Freedom came when I gave it all away

Call it Independence Day, call it Independence Day
Let the rockets blaze across the sky
Raise the flag of faith up high
Let the doubters call it what they may
It’s Independence Day

The world can crown another hundred kings but I believe in a better dream
They may call it slavery but the biggest chain I knew was me
So let the idols tumble down
The walls of lies crumble to the ground
I know where salvation can be found
Let the idols tumble down

Call it Independence Day, call it Independence Day
Let the rockets blaze across the sky
Raise the flag of faith up high
Let the doubters call it what they may
It’s Independence Day

So join in the celebration
It’s the birth of a holy nation
As people of light we are proud to say….

Call it Independence Day, call it Independence Day
Let the doubters call it what they may, ‘cuz we call it Independence Day
It’s Independence Day

LONE SOLDIER

Words and Music by Billy Smiley, Jenny Jarnigan, and John Schlitt

Hello father, good to be back home
Hello father, cuz I been on my own
And it’s been hard walking this by myself
This lonely road seems so cold

Tell me father, is there something you can say
Tell me father, there’s gotta be a better way
Cuz dreams are clouds that seem to slip on through
Can’t find the key to this mystery…

Don’t turn away – don’t toss the hope of a lone soldier
Cuz it ain’t over – ‘til you find what is there for you
Don’t think you’re done cuz voices say that it’s over
Just be bolder – we’ve all got a gift to use

Teach me father – there’s so much I can learn
Teach me angel – walk me through every turn
I’m oh so ready, please take me through this land
This land of hope is where I stand…

Don’t turn away – don’t toss the hope of a lone soldier
Cuz it ain’t over – ‘til you find what is there for you
Don’t look around just keep the way straight as an arrow
The path is narrow but it’s wide enough for you

Gotta let it go and trust how big it is
The road is long and winds and it seems it never ends
Gotta let it go and trust how you will lead
He gives us what we need

Don’t turn away – don’t toss the hope of a lone soldier
Cuz it ain’t over – ‘til you find what is there for you
Don’t think you’re done cuz voices say that it’s over
Just be bolder – we’ve all got a gift to use
Don’t turn away – don’t toss the hope of a lone soldier
Cuz it ain’t over – ‘til you find what is there for you
Don’t look around just keep the way straight as an arrow
The path is narrow but it’s wide enough for you
But it’s wide enough for you, for you

THE THINGS WE DO

Words and Music by Billy Smiley and John Ellis
© 2016 Meet You Halfway Music/ASCAP – Admin by musicservices.net

You came along and you broke my heart to pieces
You came along and you broke my heart to pieces
Ooh – yeah

It’s not the words that you say
But in the things that, things that you do
It’s in the way that we live
We all gotta give it to, give it to
The things we do, the things we do

You came along and you broke my heart to pieces
You came along and you broke my heart to pieces
Ooh – yeah

It’s not the words that you say
But in the things that, things that you do
It’s in the way that we live
We all gotta give it to, give it to
It’s not what you say
There you go kicking down the door
What you waiting for? Waiting for?

It’s not the words that you say
But in the things that, things that you do
It’s in the way that we live
We all gotta give it to, give it to
The things we do, the things we do

OLD GUYS RULE

Words and Music by Billy Smiley, John Schlitt, and Peter Andrew Furler
© 2016 Meet You Halfway Music/ASCAP, Dbabe Music/SESAC, and Foiler Tunes/ASCAP – Admin by musicservices.net

Put the needle down and feel the groove
The sound is something and it makes you move
You had a message that was coming through
Check it out…
It was all about the human race
And being part of what was taking place
Making choices that we had to face
Then is now…

Old guys rule, we ain’t fools, old guys rule

You say its different but its all the same
End up playing all these stupid games
Now you only got yourself to blame
Who’s the fool?
Don’t let people try to put you down
Cuz everything will always come around
We saw it then like we see it now
It’s so cruel…

Old guys rule – we ain’t fools, old guys rule

Wisdom is nothing to laugh about
Too often we throw it away
The value of all this experience
Is something we all should embrace

Don’t let anybody put you down
Cuz everything will always come around
We saw it then like we see it now
Then is now…Then is now…

Old guys rule, We ain’t fools
Old guys rule
Old guys rule, Old Guys rule
We’re all the fools

THE CALL

Words and Music by Billy Smiley and John Schlitt
© 2016 Meet You Halfway Music/ASCAP and Dbabe Music/SESAC – Admin by musicservices.net

Remember who you were
Before things started changing
We color outside the lines
Give a little more than all we are taking
It’s a message of our times

Cuz time, like a shifting wind
But the message never changes
How do we face this call..

It’s a call for every heart that’s broken
It’s a journey we all make
It’s a call for every song unwritten
It’s a step that we must take

We are older, but are we really wiser?
Is that not how it s supposed to be?
As we look down the ages
And while we turn the pages
The call is there, it’s clear to see
How its meant to be

It’s a call for every heart that’s broken
It’s a journey we all make
It’s a call for every song unwritten
It’s a step that we must take

It’s a call for every heart that’s broken
It’s a journey we all make
It’s a call for every song unwritten
It’s a step that we must take

Every time I seize the day
Is one more time to see your face
Every time I seize the day
Is one more time to see your face
It’s the call, It’s the call

MY OFFERING

Words and Music by Billy Smiley and John Schlitt
© 2016 Meet You Halfway Music/ASCAP and Dbabe Music/SESAC – Admin by musicservices.net

We stand here all alone
We see this world we know
Another face just in the crowd
Our dreams fall to the ground

Been searching near and far
Still looking for that shining star
Your disapointments never end
Where do we begin, begin

So take me, use me, mold me, and make me
Into the one I should be
And teach me, show me, lovingly change me
Into the one I can be…
…this is my offering

So hold your light for all to see
This gift is there for you and me
So come one, oh come ye all
At his feet we fall
Hear his call

So take me, use me, mold me, and make me
Into the one I should be
And teach me, show me, lovingly change me
Into the one I can be…
So take me, use me, mold me and make me
Into the one I should be… this is my offering

So come now and see, the king of all kings
The Lord of our hearts has come before us

So take me, use me, mold me, and make me
Into the one I should be
Yeah teach me, show me, lovingly change me
Into the one I can be…yeah
And teach me, show me, lovingly change me
Into the one I can be…this is my offering
My offering, my offering

BEYOND BELIEF

We’re content to pitch our tent
When the glory’s evident
Seldom do we know the glory came and went

Moving can seem dangerous
In this stranger’s pilgrimage
Knowing that you can’t stand still, you cross the bridge

(Chorus)
There’s a higher place to go, beyond belief, beyond belief
Where we reach the next plateau, beyond belief, beyond belief
And from faith to faith we grow
Towards the center of the flow
Where He beckons us to go, beyond belief, beyond belief

Leap of faith without a net
Makes us want to hedge our bet
Waters never part until our feet get wet

There’s a deeper place to go
Where the road seems hard to hoe
He who has begun this work won’t let it go

(Repeat Chorus)

And it takes so long to see the change
But we look around and it seems so strange

We have come so far but the journey’s long
And we once were weak but now we’re strong

(Repeat Chorus)

BITTERSWEET

Words and Music by Billy Smiley and Jason Fowler
© 2016 Meet You Halfway Music/ASCAP & Best Media Publishing/BMI – Admin by musicservices.net

With a will and a way
Hard to stay in humility
What we want and we need
Oh it’s hard to see, hard to see

Oh it’s bittersweet
The things we need to make us all complete
Oh it’s bittersweet
The key we need, surrender to be free
Oh – Yeah it’s bittersweet
The things we need, the truth that makes us whole
Oh – it’s bittersweet
The key we need
The love that brings us home

I’m lost in the maze
Turn the page
And as we go deeper the fear keeps us hear
We draw near, gotta let it go, let it go…

Oh it’s bittersweet
The things we need to make us all complete
Oh it’s bittersweet
The key we need, surrender to be free
Oh – Yeah it’s bittersweet
The things we need, the truth that makes us whole
Oh – it’s bittersweet
The key we need
The love that brings us home

So open up your mind
And don’t believe the lie
So open up your mind, open up your soul
And don’t believe the lies

Time to come back home
It’s bittersweet, It’s bittersweet
The things we need – it’s bittersweet
Surrender, the truth that makes us whole
The love that brings us home, brings us home
