  • 03:21 Lyrics Voices In The Wind
    Written by: Mark Brine
    1. God, I’ve heard you talk to me ... in so many ways
    Like the breeze that hisses through the night
    Leading me and telling me ... despite of all my trials
    Things would work out right ... but, I ...
    Just can’t hear your voice or feel your warming light
    2. Have I betrayed you, Lord, beyond all hope
    Have I lost the blessing of your will
    Am I so self-righteous that I cannot see ... and vainly
    Listen for your calling still
    Voices in the wind
    Lord, please speak to me again
    Voices in the wind
    Lord, please try’n understand
    And breathe in me your voice again
    3. My decisions ... my shortcomings ... my whole life
    Was it only wasted time
    Lord, was there any purpose to all of this? ... and if there was
    Could you please just show me one good sign
    I need your help ... I’ve lost something I need to find

  • 02:47 Lyrics Life's Just A Dream
    Written by: Mark Brine
    As important as the world around you might seem
    Someday you’ll wake to find, life’s just a dream
    And the treasures that lured you, with sparkle and gleam
    Will then disappear ... ‘csuse life’s just a dream
    Yes, all of the things that mean so much in life
    Will vanish as quick as the rays of a light
    Then those who use wealth as  a false self-esteem
    Will be rudely awaken ... ‘cause life’s just a dream
    Life’s just a dream, and it won’t mean a thing
    Whether you were a beggar or a glorified king
    And to have fame and money, as nice as it seems
    You can’t take them with you, ‘cause life’s just a dream
    All the gold mansions on the isles of life’s stream
    Will sink for the currents come fast and unseen
    No warnings, no trumpets or loud sirens
    No, there won’t be a trace left, ‘cause, life’s just a dream

  • 03:55 Lyrics Rebel
    Written by:  MARK BRINE

     Everybody called you REBEL
     A nonconfromist too.. 'cause
     You didn't like to do the things
     that normal people do
     They warned you youd be
     Dead and gone before age 22
     All that fast pace-living, son
     Is gonna take its toll on you
     Rebel, what you running from anyhow
     You live like there's no tomorrow in sight
     Try'na get it all in now rebel
     Whatcha runnin' from anyhow
     Abandoned like the joker card
     That don't belong inside the deck
     Fighting with a death wish
     That's always s breathing down your neck
     You're crazy, you're mixed up
     'n you're so confused
     You're the loner in the crowd
     With a complex screaming at you
     With a voice inside so loud

  • 02:51 Lyrics (If We Could Only) Runaway
    Written by: Mark Brine
    1. If we could only find the chance
    To somehow runaway
    I’d lead you to a beautiful place
    I dream of everyday
    In a far-off field of flowers
    Where we fall together on
    The moment we have waited for
    So very long
    Ooouu ... Ooouu ... Runaway
    Ooouu ... Ooouu ... Runaway
    If we could only ... Runaway
    2. If I could only find the chance
    To run my fingers through your hair
    I know that I could reach inside, and
    Touch what’s deep in there
    And not to take, no more than give
    What we both hide away
    Girl, if we could only ... Runway

  • 03:28 Lyrics Emmanuel (God With Us)
    Written by: Mark Brine

    A Babe is layin’ in a manger
    Lullabied by all of Heaven’s Angel choir
    In the beam of yonder glowing star
    In poverty the Prophesized Messiah

    In the village-small of Bethlehem
    To honor Him in awe they come to see
    The newborn King, the Prince of Peace
    Sent to save all humanity
    Emmanuel … God with us
    Come forth, see the world to tell
    Of the Baby Child, Emmanuel
    The key He holds to the gates of hell
    To set us free Emmanuel … God with us

  • 02:53 Lyrics Blood On The Cross

    Written by: Mark Brine


    I dreamed that I woke up on Calvary
    It was misty like in a mornin’ dew’s frost
    I walked up close and saw Jesus
    Sheddin’ his blood on the Cross

    I stood there below him and I looked up
    And I realized what our sinnin’ had cost
    And I trembled from the voice of my conscience
    And from all of the Blood on the Cross

    Blood on the Cross... What the whole world lost
    And gained by his Blood on the Cross

    Then his dyin’ eyes looked down upon me
    And for a moment I felt so alone
    But then a feeling of warmth overcame me
    Of a love that I never had known

    And as I reached up to help him his eyes closed
    And my dream and the vision was lost
    I woke up with tears in my eyes
    Still feeling his Blood on the Cross

  • 03:09 Lyrics Your Doorway (Christmas Eve)
    Written by: Mark Brine

    There were stenciled angels on the window glass
    And I stopped on the snowy sidewalk, on Christmas Eve
    As I walked past YOUR DOORWAY, our old doorway

    Then I saw us in the window from another Eve
    You were smilin’ like ya used to in your tender lovin’ way
    And I just couldn’t leave your doorway, our old doorway

    Your doorway had a wreath with a ribbon tied
    And as I focused thru the tears that blurred my eyes
    I saw it, the new name on it, on your doorway
    (on our old doorway)

    Then you came to the glass but didn’t see me there
    'N I started thru the snow, I felt to call you thru the frozen air
    Oh, just to be in there, inside your doorway, yeah, our old doorway but

  • 02:00 Lyrics The Carol (Aka The Christmas Carol No One Listens For)
    Written by: Mark Brine
    Of all the Christmas carols
    There is one we overlook
    And without it this Christmas Eve
    The whole world would be shook

    If Jack Frost didn’t whistle his
    There wouldn’t be any snow
    ‘N it just wouldn’t be so pretty
    Every single place you go

    So listen close for Jack Frost
    As he whistles in the wind
    With frozen little whiskers
    Pokin’ off his pointed chin
    Dodgin’, dartin’ everywhere
    Through window cracks and doors
    Whistlin’ the Christmas Carol
    No one listens for

    There’s carol sung for Rudolph, Frosty
    Lots for Santa too
    We’re all so well aware of ‘em
    We’ve sung em through and through
    But without Jack there be no need
    For reindeers or for sleighs
    And Frosty the Snowman
    Why he’d just melt away

    He loves whistlin’ through the windows
    That we always smudge
    Just to take a peek out
    At the icy work he does

    Yet no one ever listens for
    The little man I’ve named
    It’s such a pretty tune
    Now don’t you think that it’s a shame

  • 03:40 Lyrics If I Ever Make It Back To Heaven
    Written by: Mark Brine
    1. If I ever make it back to heaven
    We’ll be together then
    Maybe I won’t need to run no more
    ... when all of time comes to an end
    2. If I ever make it back, you’ll see
    Me coming down the path
    And you’ll know that sorrow’s over
    And love can bloom at last
    If I ever make it back to heaven
    But, the way it looks now, I never will
    But, deep within my wayward heart ... you can rest-assured
    I love you still ... Yeah, ‘n I always will (2. ‘N I’ll love you still)
    3. If I ever  make it back to you
    Though the web’s so tangledly weaved
    These detours keep misleading me
    There’s just so many ... you wouldn’t believe
    4. But, maybe like the prodigal son
    Someday you’ll find me at your door
    Worn ‘n frayed ... ‘n weary
    With no need to wander more

  • 05:31 Lyrics Preparin' The Way (For The Coming Of The Sun)
    Written by: Mark Brine
    1. In the early hour still
    I look up at the clouds
    ‘n hear the wind rejoice ‘n move
    in the silence, oh, so loud
    Then.. I come to feel its flurry
    thru the overcast dispersin’ some
    Preparin’ the way ...
    for the comin’ of the sun
    Preparin’ the way ... for the glory of that day
    When these dark clouds, rain ‘n thunder
    Will fin’lly pass away
    ‘Til then the wind will breathe ‘n sing
    the promise of the special one
    Preparin’ the way for the comin’ of the sun
    2. Whistlin’ out its warnin’
    Like a bugle across the sky
    Hailin’ all to heed the light
    that makes all darkness die
    Calling unto every soul
    the grown ‘n youngest one
    for the great day that is dawnin’
    with the comin’ of the sun

  • 04:10 Lyrics To Be With Him
    Written by: Mark Brine
    1. In a world ... where the blind lead the blind
    You’d think by now we’d see
    That no one has the answers to life
    For that’s God’s great mystery ... no ...
    Our’s is just to be with Him
    In unison ‘n not in sin
    And just maybe ... maybe then
    If we try to ... we’ll forever ... be with Him
    To be with Him ... In the glory of His Kingdom
    To be with Him ... In the way that He had planned it
    To be with Him ...
    2, Yet, we argue with ourselves ‘til we’re blue in the face
    Searchin’ desperately to find
    the inner peace ... no further than the
    puttin’ Him-first-in-our-minds ... ‘cause ...
    To be with Him ... ‘n find more than just an existence
    To be with Him ... ‘n find harmony with nature
    To be with Him ... ‘n obey the laws He gave us
    To be with Him ... to accept the bad as well as good
    To be with Him ... ‘n stop killin’ off each other
    To be with Him ... ‘n enjoy the world He gave us 
    To be with Him ... to love Him first ‘n always
    To be with Him ... ‘n not to be against Him
    To be with Him ... where there’ll be no more temptation
    To be with Him ... where there’ll be no tears of sorrow

    Written by: Mark Brine
    1. If following my dream has made your life a nightmare
    I’m sorry ... truly sorry
    If following my heart has been the reason we’ve been apart
    I’m sorry ... forever sorry
    'Cause, I love you more than my own self
    But, for me to truly be myself ... I had to be ...
    what makes me me
    2. If being what I am has ever made you what you’re not
    I’m sorry ... yes, deeply sorry
    If my self-belief has ever made you doubt ... or made you
    wonder what my love’s about ... I’m sorry ... even more than sorry ...
    Chorus 2:
    'Cause, God knows what you mean to me ...
    It just never was a game of top-priority
    No, it was the only way I knew ... to be me ...
    So, please forgive me ... ‘cause, I’m really sorry ...
    That you mis-understood
