Lyrics From the Beach Vol 4

Timothy is a Christian who enjoys creating visual art and writing. He has a B.S. in Psychology.

Welcome to this edition of Lyrics From the Beach. In this edition of Lyrics from the Beach I've included poems of love, of joy and even some confusion. I hope you enjoy each lyric as you scan down through them.

As I've mentioned before I write the lyrics to a preconceived tune in my head. I however don't know the first thing about writing the melody so if you want give it a go, you have my blessing. All I ask is the credit for the lyrics and to hear a finished song.

Sad Sad Faces

Sad, sad faces

Sad, sad faces

Looking back at me

Sad, sad faces

Walking down the street

Waiting

Hoping

For a smile from the faces

Of those I greet


But all I see

Looking back at me

Are faces

Full of sadness and fear

Faces who need the Lord


Sad, sad faces

Sad, sad faces

Looking back at me

Sad, sad faces

It’s not in the way I look

No-no

It’s not in my style

My life is what they see

Is what sounds out

Clear and bright


It’s not in the words I say

No-no

I can talk a minute, a mile

My life is what they see

Is what sounds out

Clear and bright


Big life – now I’m livin the

Big life—I’m never gonna be the same


Once I was a losing cause

Living under my own laws

One day I found I’m lost

Never really counting the cost

Of Going from here to there

Not really seeming to care


One day my life took a turn

The truth was mine to learn

I found a new reason to live

I found a new heart to give

Now I’m livin a big life, big life

Free from my old sin and strife


Big life – now I’m livin the

Big life—I’m never gonna be the same


Once I was a losing cause

Living under my own laws

One day I found I’m lost

Living under my own laws

Going from here to there


Big life – now I’m livin the

Big life—I’m never gonna be the same


Big life

Big life

Big life


Big life – now I’m livin the

Big life—I’m never gonna be the same


Big life

Won’t you join me

Call on his name

Be saved


Big life

I wonder why I’m wondering

Of another place and time

A place where I use to live

A place not great or divine


A place I once called home

My friends and I hung around

Passed the long hours each day

Enjoying whatever fun we found


As you get older your thoughts

Turn backward in time, I guess

To a place of comfort and joy

To give your fears time to rest


There was nothing so magical

About all those yesteryears

Though looking back in time

Some moments you hold so dear


I wonder why I’m wondering

Of another place and time

A place where I use to live

A place not great or divine

A place I once called home


I guess I’m looking backwards

Because the world we now reside

Has grown so, so cold and crass

Words are spoken just to divide


I wish I could go back in time

To days which felt simple


lyrics-songs-beach

I’ve never felt like this before

My blood

is pumping

My heart

is racing

My mind

is in a whirl


I’m sweating

I’m stuttering

I’ve never felt

like this before


You’re so amazing

You/re so wonderful

For the first time

in my life

I know

what true love is like


I’ve never felt like this before

My blood

is pumping

My heart

is racing

My mind

is in a whirl


What’s the use

Why

Should I do what I’m doing now

Livin a life of futility

Creating and writing

For who, for me


I’m driven to create

From deep down inside

Is it God’s calling for me

Or is it just in my mind


Whatever the answer

Whichever the reason why

Sometimes I sit and think


What’s the use

Why

Should I do what I’m doing now

Livin a life of futility

Creating and writing

For who, for me

lyrics-songs-beach

I can talk the talk

Like the rest

But will my heart

Pass the test

Can I truly say

Deep down inside

I holy walk on

On the Lord’s side


On the Lord’s side

On the Lord’s side

A heart built for service

A love deep down inside


I know my life

Is not what it

Should be

It holds me back

From what I could be


I need to control

My thoughts

Before they strangle me

So deep down inside

I can always be


On the Lord’s side

On the Lord’s side

A heart built for service

A love deep down inside

I hope you enjoyed this edition of Lyrics from the Beach. I look forward to writing more songs in the future. I'm currently working on some songs about my home state of New Jersey. Maybe I'll include them in my next edition. Until them stay safe and listen to good music.
