    What The World Needs

    Lyrics by: Brett James / Holly Lamar

    I look around at all the faces and I see
    All the lonely people looking back at me
    Rich, poor don't matter we're all the same
    Everybody's hungry in a different way
    We're clawin' and climbin' and kickin' and screamin' and fightin' but really

    Chorus
    What the world needs now is love
    Love and only love
    A little help from up above
    Faith to make a better day
    Let's come together
    Lay our differences down
    Spread it all around
    That's what the world needs now

    (La, la, la, la, la)

    Sometimes all it takes is just a smile
    To change somebody's weather
    Chase the clouds out of their sky
    Sometimes you gotta give and not receive
    Sometimes you gotta live what you believe
    Open your arms cause that's where it starts
    Right here with you and with me

    Chorus

    Bridge
    Nobody likes the cold
    We all need someone to hold
    No one wants to be alone

    Chorus: Repeat 3 times

    (Third time: "Let's come together, lay our prejudices down

    Heaven Help Me

    Lyrics by: Chuck Cannon / James Dean Hicks

    I could lose my vision
    My eyes no longer see
    I could lose my religion
    In my struggle to believe

    That would be a loss
    That would be a cross
    I'd somehow rise above
    But Heaven help me
    If I ever lose your love

    I've traded my innocence
    For the secrets of the night
    Felt my calloused conscience
    Lose its grip on wrong and right

    It cut me to the bone
    But somehow I've held on
    'Cause I could feel your touch
    But Heaven help me
    If I ever lose your love

    'Cause you are the one light that shines on me
    Without your love God knows where I'd be

    Lost without a prayer
    Somewhere way out there
    My soul would turn to dust
    Heaven help me
    If I ever lose your love

    'Cause you are the one light that shines on me
    Without your love God knows where I'd be

    So hold me close again
    Tell me it won't end
    And that will be enough
    Heaven help me
    If I ever lose your love

    Heaven help me
    If I ever lose your love

    It All Comes Down To Love

    Lyrics by: Chuck Cannon

    Talking heads talking to us on the television
    Silver screen preachers and politicians
    Say they got the answer first they gotta squeeze us
    Send a little money there's tax on Jesus
    Fix it with a prayer, fix it with a dollar
    Does anybody out there ever want to holler?

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh it all comes down to love
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Self-help guru's got a best seller
    Ricki Lake's got a drag-queen bank teller
    1-900 look into the crystal
    N.R.A. says you better buy a pistol
    They made a little pill but it might cause cancer
    It's just a cheap thrill when you're looking for the answer
    There's only one answer

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh it all comes down to love
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh it all comes down to love
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Suits on Wall Street make another million
    Dealer on the backstreet talkin' to your children
    You cry for help and nobody listens
    You lie awake at night wonderin' what's missing?
    You can put an end to all the confusion
    Look into your heart for the one solution

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh it all comes down to love
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh it all comes down to love
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Flies On The Butter (You Can't Go Home Again)

    Lyrics by: Chuck Cannon / Allen Shamblin / Austin Cummingham
    Special Appearance by Wynonna and Naomi Judd (The Judds)

    Old tin roof, leaves in the gutter
    A hole in the screen door big as your fist, and flies on the butter
    Mamaw baking sugar cookies, we were watching cartoons
    Heard her holler from the kitchen which one of you youngin's wants to lick the spoon?
    Yellow jackets on the watermelon, honeysuckle in the air
    Daddy turning on the sprinkler, us kids running through it in our underwear
    Old dog napping on the front porch, his ear just a-twitching
    Fell asleep on Granddaddy's lap to the sound of his pocket watch ticking

    Chorus
    Oh, oh, oh - Oh, oh, oh
    It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago
    Oh, oh, oh - Oh, oh, oh
    You can dream about it every now and then
    But you can't go home again

    Me and my best friend Jenny set up a back yard camp
    Stole one of Mama's Mason jars, poked holes in the lid and made a fire fly lamp
    Me and Billy Monroe sneaking down by the river
    And I'm still haunted by the taste kiss I was too scared to give him

    Repeat Chorus

    There's a black-top road, a faded yellow centerline
    It can take you back to the place, but it can't take you back in time

    Repeat Chorus

    Old tin roof, leaves in the gutter
    A hole in the screen door big as your fist, and flies on the butter

    I Will Be

    Lyrics by: Tanya Leah / Bob Farrell

    Been caught in a downpour of a rain of stones
    Felt like an exile in the world I had known
    So I sought the shelter of my own soul
    And stayed inside

    I found no comfort in placing blame
    I saw the hope that lay just beyond the pain
    The past is a prison and I won't wear those chains
    And I won't hide, oh no

    Chorus
    I will be here
    I will be strong
    I'll face my fears
    When the night is long
    And still go on
    I will be brave
    I will be bold
    Follow my faith
    To a higher road
    And I'm not there yet
    But I will be

    I could choose to keep my feet upon the beaten path
    Never cross the open field for the one snake in the grass
    But I'd rather risk my heart then never get the chance
    To find my way, to find my way

    Repeat Chorus

    I Want To Know What Love Is

    Lyrics by: Mick Jones
    Special Appearance by Jeff Beck

    I gotta take a little time
    A little time to think things over
    I better read between the lines
    In case I need it when I'm older

    This mountain I must climb
    Feels like the world's upon my shoulders
    Through the clouds I see love shine
    It keeps me warm as life grows colder

    In my life there's been heartache and pain
    I don't know if I can face it again
    I can't stop now, I've traveled so far
    To change this lonely life

    Chorus
    I want to know what love is
    I want you to show me
    I want to feel what love is
    I know you can show me

    I'm gonna take a little time
    A little time to look around me
    I've got nowhere left to hide
    It looks like love has finally found me

    In my life there's been heartache and pain
    I don't know if I can face it again
    Can't stop now, I've traveled so far
    To change this lonely life

    Repeat Chorus

    It's Only Love

    Lyrics by: Wayne Hector / Steve Robson

    If life was a classroom
    And love was just a lesson
    An answer you can guess
    Until you get it right

    You with your hand up
    Who are you impressing
    It's just when everything
    Is clearly in your sight

    Bridge
    Will cast you adrift
    But I'm of the notion
    It is what it is
    Say it with me

    Chorus
    It's only love
    You take it until it's gone
    The thing to build your world upon
    When it's getting rough
    It's only love
    There's nothing like a fantasy
    The way we think it ought to be
    It's never quite enough

    If life was a spaceship
    Cruising through the cosmos
    Then love will be the rock that
    Blows you from your sky

    Though it can be emotive
    It can be explosive
    And when it leaves you cold
    All you can do is lie

    Bridge:
    So bite your lip
    Hide your emotion
    It is what it is
    Say it with me

    Chorus

    Sometimes I Feel Like Elvis

    Lyrics by: Derek George / Neil Thrasher / Bryan White

    What I am supposed to do with this house, and these cars
    All this so called success the good Lord's given me
    I'd gladly give it all away right now,
    Just to see you walk through that gate
    Up the drive and back to the simple we used to be
    Before the money and the lawyers and the lies and the chains
    And all this fame

    Chorus
    Sometimes I feel like Elvis
    Here I am with everything and nothing at all
    I've never felt so helpless
    I don't know who I am now that you're gone
    Sometimes I feel like Elvis

    I remember the first time I saw you, you killed me
    I'd never wanted anything or anyone so bad
    I took for granted that just because of who I was
    You'd be there, while I gave the rest of the world all I had
    Everything got crazy, it all happened so fast
    It was outta my hands

    Chorus
    Sometimes I feel like Elvis
    Here I am with everything and nothing at all
    I've never felt so helpless
    I don't know who I am now that you're gone

    Bridge
    Sometimes I feel like I'm on stage
    Sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy

    REPEAT HALF CHORUS

    What am I suppose to do with this house and these cars
    I'd gladly give it all away right now
    Just to see you

    Sometimes I Feel like Elvis

    Burnin' Love

    Lyrics by: Dennis Linde

    Lord almighty,
    I feel my temperature rising
    Higher and higher
    It's burning through to my soul

    Baby, baby, baby
    You're gonna set me on fire
    My brain is flaming
    And I don't know which way to go

    Your kisses lift me higher
    Like the sweet song of a choir
    You light my morning sky
    With burning love

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    I feel my temperature rising
    Help me, I'm flaming
    I must be a hundred and nine
    Burning, burning, burning
    Nothing can cool me
    I just might turn into smoke
    But I feel fine

    Cause your kisses lift me higher
    Like a sweet song of a choir
    You light my morning sky
    With burning love

    It's coming closer
    The flames are now licking my body
    Won't you help me
    I feel like I'm slipping away
    It's hard to breathe
    And my chest is just a-heaving
    Lord, a'mercy
    Burning a hole in me

    Cause your kisses life me higher
    Like the sweet song of a choir
    You light my morning sky
    With burning love
    With burning love
    Ah, ah burning love

    I'm just a hunk, a hunk of burning love
    (repeats seven times)

    Who Am I Supposed To Love

    Lyrics by: Sarah Nagourney / Chris Rodriquez / Bobby Blazier

    I've been alone too long
    Wondering how to go on
    Without you here by my side
    So many lonely nights
    Only memories keeping me alive

    It never crossed my mind
    So much would take me to you and I
    I could have known you wouldn't stay
    Now it's a lonely day
    It used to be your love lifting me away

    I can't go on now that you're gone
    I feel this emptiness
    If it's not you I'm thinking of
    If it's not you - who am I supposed to love

    Nobody stands in your place
    I can't see another's face
    Only a trace of what I knew
    Only a shadow
    I can't picture anyone but you

    I can't go on now that you're gone
    I feel this emptiness
    If it's not you I'm thinking of
    If it's not you - who am I supposed to love

    I should have known, something so strong
    Couldn't go on and last forever
    If it's not you, who am I supposed to love

    Now just a trace of what I knew
    Only a shadow
    I can't picture anyone but you

    I can't go on now that you're gone
    I feel this emptiness
    If it's not you I'm thinking of
    If it's not you - who am I supposed to love

    Your Day Will Come

    Lyrics by: Stephony Smith / Jeremy Stover

    Pack up all your tears
    Bury the past
    Send them away
    Don't let 'em hold you back
    Love will find you again
    You'll find another way to begin
    And you'll trust in someone
    Your day will come

    Throw it on the line
    Let your heart break down
    Know that at the right time
    Love is gonna come around
    Open up your soul and
    Let the moment hold you
    Don't push it away
    Oh I know you know
    You belong in the sun
    Your day will come

    Don't go back there
    Don't tear yourself apart
    Just listen to you
    Remember who you are
    Wait for true love
    What's one more day
    You'll find the one
    Your day will come

    Chorus
    Throw it on the line
    Let your heart break down
    Know that at the right time
    Love is gonna come around
    Open up your soul and

    Don't push it away
    Oh I know you know
    You belong in the sun
    Your day will come

    Pack up all your tears
    Bury the past
    Send them away

    (No One's Gonna) Break Me Down

    Lyrics by: Brett James / Hillary Lindsey / Angelo

    Road blocks, red lights
    Dang brakes, that's life
    People say what they want
    I don't care it's just talk

    Go, let's start this show

    Chorus
    I ain't gonna let 'em hurt me now
    They ain't gonna break me down
    I ain't gonna let 'em kick me around
    No one's gonna take my crown
    Hey nothin's gonna break me down

    Got my back against the wall
    Cities rise, cities fall
    Reckless ride, wild abandon
    I'll be the one left standin'

    No you can't roll this stone

    Repeat Chorus

    Bridge
    I might trip up and I might stumble
    But you won't ever see me crumble
    Oh, oh

    You Are

    Lyrics by: Wynonna Judd / Gordon Kennedy / Wayne Kirkpatrick

    How do you do it anyway?
    Like there ain't nothing to it
    To make me stay

    No tricks with smoke and mirrors
    Not anything up your sleeve
    A second look and it can't be clearer
    It's no mystery

    Chorus
    It's in the way you love
    It's in the little things you say
    It's in the way you live
    And give your heart away
    It's in the chance you took
    It's in the way you look at me
    That sets you a world apart
    And makes you who you are
    And you are beautiful
    You are

    Pressed on my soul
    Your fingerprint
    Going where no one's ever been
    Well, I don't know how
    But I know you're in it
    My life, my world, my dreams
    I try but I just can't pin it
    Down to one thing

    Chorus

    Rescue Me

    Lyrics by: Katherine Darnell

    What do you do when you're scared inside?
    When all of your feelings just seem to collide
    Emotions just seem to let go
    All of your tears always follow

    All of these things that you're feeling deep down
    And you realize that you're calling out loud

    Chorus
    I love Thee
    Rescue me
    Shine your light lead me home
    Lord, all I need is your love
    I love Thee
    Rescue me
    Shine your light lead me home
    Lord, all I need is your love
    Rescue me, rescue me

    What do you do when the path leads nowhere?
    When you need someone to be there
    Now you're afraid of what's gonna come
    And now there's nowhere to run

    All of these things that you're feeling deep down
    Then you realize that you're calling out loud

    Chorus

    Bridge
    Oh it's love's sweet salvation
    With Christ the Blessed Lamb
    We can get through anything as long as it's you and me

    Repeat Chorus
