1. Born to love

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES / MARK MARCHETTI

Have you ever wondered what you are doing here?
Well the truth is theres a simple explanation
It's written in the starry skies above
Take a look at all of God's creation
We were born to love

Like a man loves a woman
Like a woman loves a man
Like a flower loves the rain
And a farmer loves his land
Like a cowboy loves his freedom
Dreamer loves to dream
Like a mama loves her child
Or a choir loves to sing
Oh I believe we were born to love
Oh I believe we were born to love

From the bible to the Beatles
To the old man walkin down the street
The scriptures the singers and the sages
The childrens laughter keeps reminding us
It seems like all the voices through the ages
Are sayin we were born to love

Chorus

The angels are dancin up above
Shoutin hallelujah we were born to love

Chorus

I believe we were born to love
I believe we were born to love

 

2. Prayer in the dark

MARK MARCHETTI / MARK MARCHETTI

I light another candle I get down on my knees
I'm going through the motions I am trying to believe
I need mercy and forgiveness I need to roll away the stone
I need to know that someone loves me cause tonight I'm all alone

Is there anybody out there is there anyone who cares?
A God up in heaven watchin over me down here?
If there is can you hear it , this longing in my spirit
This whisper from my heart?
This prayer in the dark

They say you walk beside me there's footprints in the sand
They say you are my shephard well father here I am
In this moment of weakness so weary and confused
I'm calling out your name I am reaching out to you

Chorus

I wanna believe I wanna believe
That there are angels up above
I wanna believe I wanna believe
That there's life after death and that all that is love

Oh tell me can you hear it
This longing in my spirit
This whisper from my heart
This prayer in the dark


There is no faith without doubt
That's what faith is all about
There is not faith without doubt
That's what faith is all about

Hallelujah I can hear the angels sing
Hallelujah I can hear the church bells ring

There is no faith without doubt
That's what faith is all about
There is no faith without doubt
That's what faith is all about

 

3. TROUBLED SOUL

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES/ MARK MARCHETTI

Troubled Soul Troubled Soul
Theres a light that shines on everyone
Troubled Soul Troubled Soul
The night gives way to the rising sun

She walks the street to make ends meet
With a baby home, hungry to be fed
She dreams someday she'll walk away
But tonight she's in a strangers bed

CHORUS

He kills the pain with a needle in his vein
Like a blanket it's  warm against his skin
But its never enough he's always chasin that rush
It's like trying to catch a feather in the wind

CHORUS

You're not alone don't despair
In our own way we've all been there

CHORUS

Troubled Soul Troubled Soul
Troubled Soul Troubled Soul

 

4. BONES

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES/ MARK MARCHETTI

I took a little trip to my closet and I opened up the door
Skeletons were rattling about settling some scores
Hello all you wish I would have could have should have beens
It's time to turn the page and turn these
Enemies into friends

I'm gonna breathe life into these Bones
Welcome in and say hello
To the dragons and demons I thought I'd buried long ago
These skeletons hold the medicine  I need to free my soul
I'm gonna shine the light on all those lies
And breathe life into these bones

There's the green eyed crazy girl
Who used to scream and often hurled
Dirty thoughts into the world and
Push everyone away
All she ever wanted was to be seen and to be loved
The more she looks the more she sees
Forgiveness is all she needs

Chorus

Rest in peace it's time to lay these demons down
Get your shit out of my closet cause this lost girl has been found

Chorus

 

5. UNRAVELING

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES

For so long she's been wound up tight
Like a ball of yarn tangled inside
Wrapped up in fear always holding back
But something is changing maybe at last

She's unraveling
Feels like her heart is travelling
Heading places she's never been
With a little grace maybe she'll trust again
Slowly but surely one by one
These knots of emotion are coming undone
And she's unraveling

She's so tired of hanging on by a thread
She wants to live her life not live in regret
So she's gonna cut these strings and free her soul
It won't be long before she's letting go

Chorus

 

6. WANDERING IN THE WILDERNESS

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES/ MARK MARCHETTI/ BONNIE BAKER

I When the straight and narrow took a turn for the worse
I found myself lost in a world of hurt
I got down on my knees at the end of my rope
Got down to my last teardrop of hope

Now i'm walking through the wilderness
I'm searching for the innocence
I'm trying to find some peace of mind
Some comfort for this soul of mine
I know i'm gonna find my way
Cause i'm still holding onto my faith
And i'm wandering through the wilderness

Found an oasis and I took a drink
I felt forgiveness wash over me
Just one taste of truth left me thirsting for more
Now i'll cross any desert to find what i'm looking for

Now i'm walking through the wilderness
I'm searching for the innocence
I'm trying to find some peace of mind
Some comfort for this soul of mine
I know i'm gonna find my way
Cause i'm still holding onto my faith
And i'm wandering through the wilderness

I know all the answers are here in my heart
I need some light to lead me out of the dark

Now i'm walking through the wilderness
I'm searching for the innocence
I'm trying to find some peace of mind
Some comfort for this soul of mine
I know i'm gonna find my way
Cause i'm still holding onto my faith
And i'm wandering through the wilderness

 

7. BORN FROM THE BLUES

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES

I Can't remember how many million tears i've cried
Nights that i have stayed awake askin god why
This world is sometimes filled with so much pain & sorrow
Wonderin if the sun would ever shine on my tomorrow

Like a butterfly that needs to find its way out of a cocoon
In this life we all have things we've gotta struggle through
From the darkness we are led to the light of truth
Where sacred wounds are healed
And we are born from the blues
 

Sometimes sadness seems like an old friend
Someone who really knows just how hard its been
Tears come to me and give dignity to the secrets in my soul
Till I am all cried out and ready to let go.


Like a butterfly that needs to find its way out of a cocoon
In this life we all have things we've gotta struggle through
From the darkness we are led to the light of truth
Where sacred wounds are healed
And we are born from the blues

Like a mother who gives birth to a baby boy or girl
Like a father searchin to find his place in this world
Like a singer who finally finds a song to sing
Like a dyin man who understands that your soul has wings

Like a butterfly that needs to find its way out of a cocoon
In this life we all have things we've gotta struggle through
From the darkness we are led to the light of truth
Where sacred wounds are healed
And we are born from the blues

 

8. MAMAS GOTTA SING

 STEPHANIE URBINA JONES / MARK MARCHETTI/ JUDY BLACKWELDER

Kitchen sink another long day
Dishes piled up there’s bills to pay
Like a Bird my soul needs a song
Something that helps me get my groove back on

Mama Mama Mama Mamas Gotta Sing
Oh Mama Mama Mama this Mamas Gotta Sing

Holy Wars and Hurricanes
Look what we've done in Gods Name
As. I lay my baby down to sleep

I wonder about her future and her dreams

Chorus

Out of the pain  comes  a desire
To turn the rain into a fire

We’re talking about a new vibration
Y’all we are birthing a new creation

Scat

Mama, Mama, Mama Mammas Gotta Sing
Mama, Mama, Mama this Mamas Got to Sing

 

9. LOVERS LULLABY

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES / MARK MARCHETTI

Looks like mother nature had herself a good night
There's not a cloud up in the sky
Even those old blue birds seem to smile as they go by
Singing a lover’s lullaby

Hmmm that honeysuckle got the bees a buzzin
With one thing on their mind
Baby don't it feel like the whole worlds on our side
Singing a lover’s lullaby

I wanna bathe in the rays of your sweet sunshine
Knowing everything is gonna be just fine
Rest your weary heart in mine
And rock a bye i wanna rock a bye

Solo

Hey look out the window isn't that a rainbow
Just for you and i
I just want to lay here till the day turns into night
Singing a lovers lullaby
I wanna bathe in the rays of your sweet sunshine

Singing a lover’s lullaby

 

10. COLOR MY WORLD

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES / MARK MARCHETTI

I wanna Color my world outside the lines
Open my heart and open my mind
Look at life through the eyes of a child
Paintin by numbers ain't my style

I wanna color my world outside the lines
With all the love I feel inside
Forget the rules I used to know
Just make it up us I go

I wanna fly high beyond the clouds
Laugh and dream out loud
Leave the doubt and fear behind
And color my world outside the lines

I wanna color my world outside the lines
Tell the truth my soul designs
A brand new canvas everyday
Filled with pictures I create

I wanna fly high above it all
Knock down every wall
Leave the doubt and fear behind
And color my world

I wanna fly high beyond the clouds
Laugh and dream out loud
Leave the doubt and fear behind
And color my world outside the lines

Color my world
Color my world
Outside the lines

See beyond the black and white
Keep on walking to the light
Color my world outside the lines
With all the love I feel inside

 

11. chiselin' out my soul

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES

I once knew a wise old man Maximillian was his name
He was an artist of life a sculptor by trade
I used to sit and watch him work ask him questions try to learn
About the magic that he made, but he'd just smile and say

I'm chiselin’ out my soul
Like  Michelangelo
Found spirit in the stone
I'm chiselin’ out my soul

I used to go and visit him maybe once or twice a week
I drank in every moment I was thirsty for his kind of peace
He said let love be your discipline , carve out your experience
Be authentic and be real, that's how my peace was revealed

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Like a precious piece of treasured art
I'm not for sale I've worked too hard
To find out who I am
And at my age I don't give a damn

CHORUS

SOLO

Well my friend Max died a few years back but I think about him everyday
His words of wisdom guide my heart when I've got a tough choice to make
He said everyones got an artists eye painting pictures with their lives
Everything you say and do is a framed canvas of your own truth

CHORUS

 

12. hand to faith

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES / DON MESCALL

We are the pilgrims
Came on ships with sails
That touched the starry skies
We are the travellers
Who carried dreams of hope
With wonder in our eyes
As we turn to face the morning sun
Miles of blue out in front of us

Hand to faith  
Faith to trust  
In life and in each other  
Love is calling us
We set sail  
Upon stormy seas
With the blessing of Gods grace to steer our destiny
Living in each moment giving thanks

Hand to faith

We are the farmers   
Planted seeds down on our knees
And prayed the crops would come  
Each day returning  
Watching black earth turn to
Gold while we still had the sun
Shining on down on the harvest day
Humbled by the life we’d made

Chorus   
We’ve seen dark days  
We’ve seen troubled skies  
But somehow the dawn breaks
And wakes the wonder in our eyes  

Chorus

 

13. FREEDOM IN YOUR EYES

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES 

Looks like you've shed that skin
The one that you've been in
I can't remember when you looked so good my friend
You've got your head held high like you could touch the sky
Seems like you said goodbye to that voice that told you lies

Looks like somethins really changed
Like you finally broke those chains
And found your wings to fly
And I see freedom in your eyes

Those demons that had your soul
They've seen the light and  lost their hold
Now  spirits found its strength and flown
Far beyond their control

Chorus

So soar beyond your wildest dreams
Your like a  newborn baby with clear eyes that see
A world filled with faith and love
Your in Gods hands and there ain't nothin
You can't rise above

Chorus

 

14. THE BITTERSWEET BEAUTIFUL RIDE

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES/ WAYNE KIRPATRICK

 Every shadow has a light
Every dark of night will see a sunrise
Every yes can have a no every hello
Has a goodbye
Let that river run and take me where it will
Down into the valley and through the rolling hills

It's a bittersweet beautiful ride
An emotional roller coaster we call life
I've healed I've hurt gone from bad to worse
Come out better on the other side
Of this bittersweet beautiful ride

I have laughed so hard I've cried
Cried so hard that I could hear my heart breaking
Lived and lost so many dreams gone to the extremes
And there I have felt the hand of someone that I love
And watched leave this world
And I have felt the rush of living
When I first held my baby girl

Chorus

Dance in the sunshine dance in the rain
Sing through the sorrow tomorrows another day

Chorus

 

15. OPEN UP YOUR HEART

STEPHANIE URBINA JONES

I can see you walking with your head hung low
Like you've lost your way like you've lost your hope
Well look into my eyes baby I'll be here
Burning through the darkness burning through the fear

Open up you heart
Let the sun shine in
Cause I'm gonna love you love you love you
Until the end and then
Beyond this world that turns
My fire for you will burn
So open up your heart
And let the sun shine in

I know it's hard to trust what you don't know
But day by day I promise I will show
You what love looks like baby I'll be here
Burning through the darkness
Burning through the fear

Chorus

Life is asking us to dance
Come on baby take my hand
This is our chance

Chorus
