After The Sun Arrived the Oklahoma Rain A light did come That would illuminate the plains Opened my eyes To see a beautiful surprise Up in the sky Heavenly picture floating by I see my father I see my mother Sisters and brothers The seven colors The seven colors We are the hope Of all the dreams you left behind So long ago Just see how strong and bright we shine We are the light We are your ribbon in the sky Alive and bright We are the apple of your eye

Miracle 04:18
Picture in my locket Keeps me holding on Keep me in your pocket And I’ll be going strong It won’t be long I’m too far gone I’ll battle on Say you’ll be my baby Fuel my appetite If you’re thinkin' maybe I won’t give up the fight I’m standing by I’ll be alright I’m satisfied It’s gonna take a miracle To keep me away from you You know there’s nothing I’d rather do Than to steal away with you It might take eternity But baby, I got the time I know it’s gonna be worth the climb When I finally make you mine
3.
Miss Me 03:56
And honestly I think it’s time to saddle up And travel on ‘Cause you and me We’re lost inside this battle And the lines are drawn And you’re gonna miss me You’re gonna miss me Miss me when I’m gone You’re gonna miss me You’re gonna miss me Miss me when I’m gone And truthfully I find myself still wondering Where I belong Seems to me You’ll never really know Just why I came along What might have been Could it be We'll never really know Just how this journey ends
4.
Mantle 03:15
I keep your memory up on my shelf Not showing anybody else Dreaming of one more time And one more chance Just one more touch Knowing that one more day Will never be enough Chorus I’ve got a mantle full of cards Telling me just how grand you are If it’s enough to mend this heart I will let you know I will let you know If they can mend this broken heart If it’s enough to heal these scars I will let you know
5.
Glory 04:21
Thinkin’ ‘bout the glory days Trying to set the world ablaze I made mistakes I know Tryin’ to find my way Think it’s time to make a change Surely that could be arranged Think I’ll escape and go Where no one knows my name ‘Cause I spent all my time with you You spent all your love on me We spent all our chances Trying to be free And nobody understands Why we’re makin’ other plans I’m just tryin’ to find out Who I’m supposed to be Lookin’ for the glory So, I’m packing up my yesterdays Think I chased the dream away Wish I could find the will To have the final say But tomorrow’s never really planned Surely you can understand I need an open road And a quiet place to land
6.
Windows 04:26
From your window The grass looks greener, The sidewalk’s cleaner than clean From my window The rain won’t let up I can’t seem to get up the steam You see me strollin’ The deck I’m holding’s Got you reeling ‘Cause I’m rolling in green But what you see Is really never what it seems From your window Interlude Vamp Do you see the world that I see from your window Can you see a world that’s staring back at you If you come a little closer to my window You would see it from another point of view Outro Vamp If you come a little closer And you try to think it over You would see the point of view From my window Try to see a different picture You could turn around and Figure out a way to start anew From your window
7.
And I hope my mama’s in a place like this ‘Neath the healing waters in a state of bliss With the sunlight waning like a fading kiss Yeah, I hope my mama's in a place like this Yeah, I hope my mama's in a place like this We could talk for hours and we’d reminisce Feel the cleansing shower of the morning mist In a field of flowers ‘neath a sky so big Well, I hope my mama's in a place like this Yeah, I hope my mama's in a place like this She would smell the lilies and the violets Hear the peaceful humming of the katydids Feel the cool wind blowing through her fingertips Yeah, I hope my mama’s in a place like this Yeah, I hope my mama’s in a place like this
8.
How many times Can sunlight spring Can angels’ wings adorn you Knowing you’re keeping All your hopes at bay Tell me again How much you miss Sweet heaven’s kiss before you Waiting for God to take your blues away Sing a song Sing a song of freedom Sing out strong Loud and pure and free Battle on Fighting for your freedom Pressing on To where you want to be Sing a song A song of liberty They say despair is everywhere It leads you where you let it Give it an inch, it surely takes a mile A battle cry is in the air And don’t you dare forget it You will rise up stronger in a while
9.
Your heart was a bright red hue Blazing so brightly That it burned my eyes And what I saw in you Gave me a reason To think I could fly But as you drifted ever slower Into the sun I watched your brilliant colors fade And bleed into one Chorus 2 Your dreams were a bright red hue Painting a portrait Of a shooting star Building a world or two Creating a fortress In your castle far I saw you burst against the darkness Lighting the sky But when I look to find your heart I see only night I see only night Oooo… ooo… Chorus 3 Your love was a bright red hue Shining so brightly In the midnight sky Willing to rendezvous I gazed at the heavens And you caught my eye But as I reached for your embrace You faded from sight And now I’m left with just a trace Of love’s holy light Of love’s holy light
10.
Echoes of night in winter Distressing silence enters Collecting memories in the wind Our hearts are calling for you Patiently searching for you Expecting snow to fall again Moving closer Calling your name Party’s over Caught in the rain We’ll light a star in the night Guiding our way to the light And we’ll meet you At the end of the river
11.
Won’t be long ‘Til we reach the final hour Sing your song You will blossom like a flower Any day I know happiness will find you Break away Leave this weary world behind you
